Cissokho Story Not True – Eden Hazard Not Coming Either


The Newcastle Journal are reporting that the story about Aly Cissokho coming to Newcastle is simply untrue.

Eden Hazard – not coming to Newcastle

We had wondered why Newcastle would consider paying out £7.5M for a left-back when our major target has to be a center-back in January, and apparently Pardew has around £8M available.

When Cissokho had told L’Equipe yesterday that the two clubs were in negotiations,  and that Lyon had said Newcastle had already bid for the player,  we even though the story could be true.

So you can see how difficult it is to sort the out the truth in these transfer windows, when even players and clubs are not playing the straight bat.

And it’s hardly surprising that Alan Pardew has urged Newcastle fans not to get carried away with recent transfer talk  involving  Lille’s Eden Hazard.

The attacking midfielder has only just turned 21 this month,  but the transfer free it would take to get him from Lille is something Newcastle would simply not pay – not for one player.

Trophy transfers are a thing of the past at Newcastle, as long as Mike Ashley is the owner.

There was speculation in Newcastle because the Belgian international was supposed to be arriving on Tyneside, but it was to watch his former team-mate Yohan Cabaye.

But Eden couldn’t make it because he had to play in France on Sunday, but anyway that seems to have been the cause of the speculation, even though it seems pretty thin,  because he would have known  he had a game on Sunday.

But it caused Alan Pardew to say this about that rumor:

“It’s unfair on our fans – they’ll be looking up Hazard and people like that,”

“The guy’s worth about £36M – he ain’t coming here. I’d love him to come here. If he was at the training ground, I’d rather have been there than at the game!”

“He wasn’t, and unfortunately I don’t think he will be.”

We don’t expect Newcastle to pay much more than around £7M for any player these days.

But don’t think that means we cannot end up with some world class players in the side, because of the way Newcastle are doing their transfer business these days.

Youth development is a big one and any one of our young players could turn out to be a top player of the future.

And we already have tip top players like Tiote, Krul, Cabaye and Ba at the club and how much would they be worth in the transfer market these days?

Newcastle paid out £8M for the four of them, so while the club will not pay out the big bucks for players, the club’s savvy strategy should ensure we continue to have some great players playing in the black and white stripes of Newcastle United.

Howay The Lads!!

    Hazard isnt’ coming because we signed Loic Remy!!!! Someone else said this on the last thread. No one knows what is going on because the club keep a tight lip. I wouldn’t be surprised if MA and Pardew start some of these rumors themselves just to throw other teams off of what we are really doing.

    Also, remember Pardew said that we are working on deals for the summer as well. Maybe this is one of them.

    Can you imagine the buzz in the city if on January 31st, Ashley himself held a press conference, and just said ‘you wanted your £35mil, here, we’ve given you it, and Eden Hazzard stepped out in a toon shirt. Wow.

    If we are not getting to know anything, which in my opinion is the right way for the club to go about their business, we might aswell dream, right?

    Darn it, I honestly thought that the true fan Mr Mike Ashley was actually willing to speculate to accumulate, build on the great start and actually do something for the fans……………………

    NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    AP has a point; the fans tend to blame the Club not the hacks@journochronic when these made up transfers turn out not to be true.

    Hi all , what do u all think about what hatem has said about Pardews style of football,
    If true the man speaks with a fork tongue , he said he wants to get the ball down and play, that’s why he got cabaye
    But from what iv seen I would tend to agree with what harem has said, that pardew likes to play direct long ball football

    Which then leads me to think pardew has no real say in who is brought into the club, I think that players are bought for him and he is told to get on with it,

    Eden Hazard is not coming. Lionel Messi is not holed up in the Hilton in Gateshead. Loic Remy has not been seen at ladbrokes in the Toon. A mate of mine’s brothers milmans sister’s hairdresser’s mate did not bump into Mario Gomes in Marks & Spencers. The entire Inter Milan Team have not demanded season tickets for the metro.
    I am so ‘In the know’ its scary. Follow me on twitter #haventgotacluewhatIamtalkingabout
    Bring back Andy Carroll he’s brilliant, and we all love him.

    @milk or cream

    When AP has all players available to him, i.e. Ba and Tiote, Marveaux etc. you will see his true style of play come out. I mean come on, these aren’t “long ball” players he’s signing.

    We have just resorted to this tactics in certain games due to the personnel we’ve had at AP’s disposal.

    As he said himself, his preferred style is the passing game, but also likes to mix it up so we’re not too predictable like a Stoke or dare I say it a Swansea (albeit they haven’t been stopped yet, but Blackpool were found out).

    Towards the end of the season with all players back I think we’ll see a pleasant mix of passing football, with some direct balls thrown in there, just like at United, and that worked a treat.
