What About Ideye Brown for Newcastle?


A player that I think could be an exciting player for Newcastle is current Sochaux forward Ideye Brown.

 

Ideye Brown -Impressive first season in France

Ideye Brown is a versatile 22 year old forward on the fringe of the Nigerian national side. He has speed to burn and scored a very impressive 15 goals for Sochaux in his first season with them. He fits the profile of an exciting young prospect and could be a bargain buy for Newcastle.

Brown “who sports his first name Ideye on his shirt” does have three years left on his contract which would drive his price up a bit but he is not a player who would cost a fortune. He does strike me as a player who could thrive in the Premier League.

He is a major part of an exciting young Sochaux side who finished fifth this past season and have some intriguing players such as Marvin Martin, Modibo Maiga, and Ryad Boudebouz. What do you think of this player?

    No idea if we’ll go for this player or not, but I think that the general principle of us signing players that none of us have heard of – and the press haven’t even mentioned yet – will prove to be the case. I’d never really heard of the likes of Tiote, Ben Arfa etc until we signed them.

    So in short, you never know…

    have seen him once, looks good, but I would like to see if he could do the job consistently before splashing any cash around.

    To my knowledge Ed lives in America and this site is run by him so I’d guess it is a site hosted in the USA so you could say its a ‘American’ site but not really

    Ideye looks promising. He is good in the air for a player that isn’t really tall. Has good pace and has a stinging shot off both sides.

    His first 6 months in Ligue 1 weren’t so great but he improved and was very good last season. If we were to sign him, I would suspect the same again, He’d take some time to get up to speed, but he could be an excellent signing if he keeps improving.

    Ghali, sticky keyboard there? You posted first, but your contribution came 4th? Finnish your w@nk before commenting next time.

    Is this player a powerful forward or a small fast one? If he’s the former I’d take him. We need a good big man.

    think if we sign anyone from Sochaux it’s more likely to be Cedric Bakambu! reserve team striker with pace to burn! Be similar to the Mehdi Abeid deal where he hasn’t broke the first team squad yet, but then Tiote wasn’t first team at Twente either! Ideye Brown for me is bit similar to Martins, and Marvin Martin is a mile out of our league, he’ll get a massive european team! One sochaux player i’d like us to scout is Charlie Davies (on loan at DC united). Incredibly hard worker, great athlete etc, be a great squad player!

    If Carr has been scouting Martin and Boudebouz then he may well have had his eye caught by this lad if he is good

    I trust in Graham Carrs judgement on whoever we get in 🙂

    Not cheap cheap…

    7-8m at a guess with a couple of years left on his contract.

    He was tearing the Swiss league apart before moving to Sochaux. Not exactly comparable to EPL, but at least he didn’t struggle there.

    wwjbd .. i trust carr too.. but im worried that the players he scouted might not be as enthusiastic as cabaye .. for example gamiero and probably gervinho .. if it wasnt for cabaye and tiote, we probably would not have been linked with gervinho

    another player to look at from france! Emmanuel Rivière! he’s at st ettiene, plays as a striker but can operate on the wings! wouldn’t shock me if we’ve scouted this lad!

    this was my top 10 transfer targets 3 weeks ago.

    1. gervinho
    2. gameiro
    3. n’zogbia
    4. sturridge
    5. sow
    6. ba
    7. barrnetta
    8. chamakh
    9. long
    10. defoe

    we still have a chance on everybody except for gameiro. 🙂

    Yeah but a lot of big players won’t be hugely impressed with NUFC right now its Pardews job to convince them we are going the right way. Carr just spots the talent and relays the infomation
