Mariappa Starts For Watford At Milwall Tonight – No Deal?

7:35 pm, Tuesday, January 31st, 2012 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 650 Comments

We see Adrian Mariappa is starting the game for Watford at Milwall tonight in the Championship.

Adrian Mariappa – starts at Milwall tonight – means no deal?

So that hardly gives any time  for the player to complete a move to Newcastle, if indeed he is to come through the door at Newcastle before 11:00 pm tonight.

The game will finish at around 9:45 pm,  which gives a little time for him to do get a medical and to sign the contract,  but it must now look very unlikely he will be joining Newcastle tonight.

The news on both Sky Sports and in the Daily Mail is that Watford agreed a fee with Wigan Athletic for the player, but Adrian did not want to join the Lancashire club, and the news being reported is that he really wants to join Newcastle.

But of course that will not happen unless Watford and Newcastle reach an agreement on the fee, and with the lad starting at the New Den in 15 minutes time, that must not have happened.

But you never know of course, and maybe if a deal is reached he will be substituted during the game,  then rush off and get a medical in London somewhere, and sign the deal. :D

But if a deal was imminent,  surely he would not have started this game.

Maybe nobody is coming through the door tonight at Newcastle.

Comments welcome.

    Oh see i stirred up some people before, I was asked by zebra to give my opinion on something and I did but looks like im not allowed an opinion.
    For the record im a 41 vyear old season ticket holder who was born in south tyneside and my tree can be traced back for generations im no bandwagon jumper.
    I have been to the vets with my dog for those interested.
    As I said i was asked my opinion and gave it if I upset any sensitive souls I will happily give yuou a cuddle at the game tomorrow night or at any home game this season! xxx

  • 9 brightontoon // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:39 PM

    Theres still a chance we could sign him, remeber he doesnt need to be in newcastle we can have his medical done, down south and his contract can be done down south also just needs Ashley or DL in Harold the Helicopter to go down there!!!!

  • 10 wingspan // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:39 PM

    Bassong is never in the squad lol Waste of a decent player that.

  • 11 JackButler // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:39 PM

    If a fee is agreed with Watford and personal terms are agreed with his agent, the player can have his medical tomorrow.

    Clutching at straws I know :(

  • 12 GeordieCoaster // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:39 PM

    Apparently Pardew is at Tottenham game, according to twitter

    is it true that Gerrard is not in the starting line up tonight?

  • 16 JackButler // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:41 PM

    If you can get in touch with Tony, tell him that he may make a killing with those pitchforks by the end of the window ;)

  • 17 Dannyo // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:41 PM

    @JB
    Hehe, aye, i’m not disagreeing, again, massive gamble.
    It could cost us Europe, or we could end up where we were expecting to end up. Top 10.
    Huge loss tho if it’s the backup CB that costs us Europe. I hope it won’t be the goals that are lacking.
    We’ll be able to measure that towards the end of the season.
    Obviously it’s a gamble they’re willing to take.

  • 18 GeordieCoaster // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:41 PM

    @danish Yes he’s not playing

  • 24 Rosted Pork // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:42 PM

  • 26 Liam Cope // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:42 PM

    We are not getting mariappa, we are getting Douglas.

    Lynxie no offence mate but i moved to Yorkshire as a result of my dad moving here when I was a kid he needed a job you see and the Power Stations were 70’s answer to call centres.
    Life would have been easier supporting leeds like all my mates and I would not have got bullied for wearing a newcastle shirt in the early 80’s.
    Like I say you guys are as entitled to your opinions and I apologise if some thought mine were extreme but hey ho thats the problem with living in a democracy i guess freedom of speech its called.
    Im glad you all love the best club in the world I really am.But i am entitled to my opinion without thekeyboard warriors shooting me down

  • 32 sahil // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:43 PM

  • 38 Scottishmag1 // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:44 PM

    Why do these clowns still insist “Newcastle still hopeful on signing Mariappa”

    BS ……….would need a miracle the way things are panning out! No new on any of our big players departing which is positive

  • 39 BOOM BOOM THE 1ST // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:44 PM

    just copped on boys ha

  • 40 Beattie25 // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:45 PM

    Pardew being in London doesn’t add up for me.

    He would surely be with the team the night before an away match.

    Marvin Sordell has been left out of the Watford squad after the owner asked he be removed.

    Lovenkrands + £2 million?

    Ooooohhhhhh I doing the rumours now

  • 41 Dannyo // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:45 PM

    @WWJBD
    It’s dissapointing aye, but we’ve gotten our number 9 and we’re likely to be the club spending the most money on a player.
    Us.
    In a transfer window.
    Under MA.
    £9 million for one player.
    I cannot belive i’m typing this.

  • 42 dmac // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:46 PM

    If the window shuts with no-one leaving and us bringing in Cisse then i will be relatively happy. Its a shame that no Cb cover has been bought in however it probably just means targets were not available at this time (as was the Cisse case in the summer) it just means we have our eyes set on a player and that we shall wait. A little bit disappointed but in my opinion we have still made progress.

  • 43 JackButler // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:46 PM

    WWJBD

    The Cisse signing blew me away mate tbh, a centre half at this point will be a bonus, but in terms of what we need, its a must really, one more injury and we’re in the shit

    Tony – with business acumen like yours you should be on Dragon Dens :)

  • 44 redondo77 // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:47 PM

    Arsenal now is bidding Mariappa

  • 45 tarie4 // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:47 PM

    BPLTransferNews

    If Marriapa doesn’t join #NUFC, Sebastian Bassong could come in on loan. I’m hearing that on the grapevine

  • 46 gorgonzola // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:48 PM

    NO CB is really unforgivable I am sorry there could be a lot of told you so when we start getting some balls in the net…. I hope I am wrong….. bit I am worried…

  • 47 Selbymag // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:49 PM

    Oh well looks like the people who spent all evening slating me wont respond to my apology so onwards and upwards.
    See anyone going to Blackburn there I think im trying a pub called the Golden Cup just of the M65 as the Ferhurst is shut and im walking in from the travel lodge.

  • 48 WWJBD // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:49 PM

    Dannyo
    Aye mate agreed its a shame no CB and if Colo gets crocked its going to hurt but then it would even if we did have Mariappa (or the level that we were going for)

    We wanted a stop gap and were unwilling to pay top dollar for one…I cant really complain too much about that.

    We did get a number 9 though and thats fantastic in my eyes so yeah am fairly happy…..compared to last year I am chuffed to bits

  • 49 JackButler // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:49 PM

    Bassong wont happen, too many players at the club have issues with the lad and how he left us, thats what was said a week or two ago

  • 50 Spuggy // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:51 PM

    We could do with a transfer day lift, unlike the previous saga’s.

    Still crossing my finger we don’t get crazy last minute bids in for Krul, Collo and Tiote. I think Ba will defo stay til summer with Cisse signing.

    It’s been a horrible period with losing the last two games in the manner we did, the loss of momentum with our best players at the ACoN.

    And it all looked so fantastic after we stuff Manu 3-0.

    CB now please, Quality Fullback and new third choice 3rd striker (non african) in the summer. Then clear out the dead wood. With Saylor and Marv back we will have the best squad in a decade IF we keep our best players.

  • 51 free giveaways // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:51 PM

    Don’t think we’ll sign anyone now. If Marriapa is playing tonight he won’t sign for anyone. Watford wouldn’t play him and risk injury if there was any chance of a possible transfer.

    And apparently Bassong fell out with the board so I don’t think he’ll be signing, though I would definitely take him.

  • 52 Liam Cope // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:51 PM

    I agree with dmac. As long as Ba, Tiote etc have all stayed that can only be a bonus. I read something on the comments about someone called Douglas. Who is he?

  • 53 martoon // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:52 PM

    Like I said this morning we are not signing anybody, as usual, even though they have had a month. The same old line will be trotted out “We couldn’t get it across the line”. If we don’t sell any key players then I suppose it could have been a lot worse.

  • 54 Tonytoon73 // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:52 PM

    It’s groundhog day today, you know lads.

  • 55 Mancgeordie // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:52 PM

    Sorry lads i’am getting the feelin that we ain’t gettin the cb we need i know cwarr chats utter cack but i wish once just once he would get something right? Instead of always hitting the complete oppersite to##er

  • 56 JBax97 // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:53 PM

    The only way I can see this happening is that the fee is agreed during the game, Newcastle agree personal terms with his agent and then he’s rushed off to a medical after the game. Enter M’biwa?

  • 57 WWJBD // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:53 PM

    JB
    Aye true but top 10 is the target not Europe and we have 2 fit CBs, Perch who has looked decent at CB and reserve/youth players

    Come summer we will have a far larger pool of players to cherry pick from and are more likely to get a target we want rather than one we have to have

  • 58 BOOM BOOM THE 1ST // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:54 PM

  • 60 Beattie25 // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:55 PM

    JB Who has a problem with him?

    There is only Shola, Lover and Harper who remain as first team players from when Bassong was here.

    You sir are full of shite

  • 61 redondo77 // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:55 PM

    QPR signing anyone available

  • 62 Dannyo // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:55 PM

    Hahaha, ignore my earlier “we have Streete aswell” comment, he just went off with a groin injury.
    This keeps getting better, lol.

  • 63 SurefootedShola // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:55 PM

    Swansea in complete control against Chelsea so far, camped in their half.

  • 64 martoon // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:55 PM

    Wait a minute somebody has posted on Twitter that he has been withdrawn from the squad. Maybe it will get over the line :-)

  • 65 darko // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:56 PM

    I can’t get excited about mariappa, like I’ve said many times it’s competition rather than cover we need. We need a CB to push the others. However it looks like we’re not selling so I’m relatively happy.

  • 66 Toon1978 // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:56 PM

    Not to worry lads. We will get our CB and hopefully a FB in the summer. Will be great just to keep our best players and the Cisse signing is great for the club. Not only does it add strength but it may persuade Ba to stop on at NUFC for the long run.

  • 67 JackButler // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:56 PM

    WWJBD

    if we can get Douglas or the lad from Ajax in the summer then fair enough, just pleased that we haven’t lost anyone :)

    We are stronger coming out of the window than we were going into it and we have someone to grace our No#9 shirt again

  • 68 pizzicatochan // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:57 PM

    Maybe this year we will be stuck with Perch and Dummett and Dummett can contribute a lot.

  • 69 Beattie25 // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:57 PM

    Oh and Colo and Guti

    I sir am full of shite

  • 70 Rosted Pork // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:58 PM

    watchn everton match

  • 71 Spuggy // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:58 PM

    It will be a Massive mistake if we don’t sign a CB.

    May be ok for now, but wait til Collo or WIllo is injured – Norwich and West Brom anyone remember what happened.

    Exactly.

  • 72 JackButler // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:58 PM

    Beattie25 – listen laddie, only posted what I read about Bassong, don’t let your mouth run away with you in the excitement

  • 73 gorgonzola // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:59 PM

    commonn woolveeesssss!!!!

  • 74 WWJBD // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:59 PM

    JB
    Exactly, though get the feeling it will be either Douglas or Vertoghen rather than both unless Colo is on the move

    Exactly mate we have a star striker again (hopfully) which is something NUFC is known for! Got to be happy about that

  • 75 Dannyo // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:59 PM

    @WWJBD
    Haha, ye, compared to a year ago, we’re in completely different position, so we’ll have to be well chuffed for that tbh.
    In the end, it’s about watching the bigger picture. Buying a decent backup without over spending, and still go for the main targets in the summer.
    Atleast i hope that is the thinking.
    We’ve been linked with a host of great players, and like 80% of them are said to be “summer targets”.
    It’ll be an interesting summer indeed.

  • 76 gorgonzola // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:59 PM

    Spuggy I know mate I am shit scarred….imagine what City would do to us at home :(

  • 77 SurefootedShola // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:00 PM

    If nothing happens before 11pm, then I think defensive reinforcements will arrive in the form of Douglas and Pieters, in the summer.

  • 78 JackButler // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:00 PM

    Beattie25 – And by the way check how many players that are still at the club that where here when Bassong walked away

  • 79 Mancgeordie // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:00 PM

    Nahh you can’t tell me we couldn’t get 1 single cb either on loan or for a decent fee who could do half decent job as cover gor colo n willo no not havin it

  • 80 Beattie25 // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:03 PM

    JB

    I apologize if my language caused you offence but my point remains

    How do you know the players wouldn’t welcome him back?

    Again, I don’t know if he would come, and I don’t know if the players would like him, but neither do you!

  • 81 Dannyo // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:03 PM

    @JB
    That’s the spirit. Hopefully Cisse starts with a bang and we’ll all forget the CB :P
    There’s one thing to have Ba and Cisse individually, but it’s the fact that they know eachother so well that excites me.
    They can bring eachother up another notch with their understanding.
    However dissapointing it is not getting a CB, we are, as u say, still stronger, and MA has taken another step to prove us wrong.

  • 82 boater // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:03 PM

    Beattie25 – what about Ryan Taylor, Krul, Guthrie?

    Plus JB is repeating something he (and I) heard so stop shouting people down. If you want to micro manage comments, create your own blog.

  • 83 dmac // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:03 PM

    Some people get the right hump on here! Cheer the eff up we signed a new no.9! People are just looking for reasons to moan as per usual. Man utd currently have jones,ferdinand, vidic, fabio all out injured and they have signed no-one pipe down.

  • 84 jonny1610 // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:03 PM

    Burnley manager just on radio Lancashire saying Newcastle put offer in for Rodriguez and that he won’t be answering his phone and keeping the players back after the match.

  • 85 KevinHann // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:03 PM

    Unreal!!!

  • 86 Spuggy // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:03 PM

    I can’t believe all this talk about not too bothered if we don’t sign a CB so long as we don’t lose anyone.

    Of course I don’t want any players to go, but we NEED CB cover. Perch has one decent game against championship opponents and now he’s considered as cover. Wasn’t the case against West Brom and Norwich was it?!

    I’ve nothing against the lad, I think he’s useful to shore up and see games out, but I don’t think he’s ready to fill in at CB long term. We need a beast at CB.

    It’s a HUGE gamble on Willo and Collo injuries. Playing with fire. We sign a £10 million striker but can’t get a £2-3 million CB over the line. Confused. I am.

  • 87 Rosted Pork // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:04 PM

    saha at spurs lol

  • 88 WWJBD // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:04 PM

    Dannyo
    Exactly mate, we sized up Cisse over the summer and tried but failed to get him and now he is in our kit. Hopefully this Jan was about sounding out players and setting summer targets

    Obviously when Colo and Willo get crocked tomorrow night I will change my tune haha

  • 89 SurefootedShola // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:04 PM

    Swansea should be 1 up :(

  • 90 Mancgeordie // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:04 PM

    Yeah spuggy your right if lose willo or colo for any length of time nevermind europe we would be lucky to stay in the top half

  • 91 redondo77 // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:05 PM

    We will sign Douglas and Honda :D

  • 92 boater // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:05 PM

    @Beattie 25 – and Steven Taylor.

  • 93 WWJBD // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:06 PM

    Beattie
    When we were linked with him more than one article came out stating that players, training staff and management had issues with the lad and there was no chance he would be welcomed back despite what he says now

  • 94 dmac // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:06 PM

    Hasnt Honda gone lazio?

  • 95 Dannyo // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:06 PM

    @WWJBD
    Lol, indeed, will need to have my pitchfork ready and practice my throw, lol.

  • 96 t00ntime // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:07 PM

    Because he isnt worth 3mil… He plays for watford… we only spend big on the right players aka cisse… Why spend 3 mil to find out he is like perch… Never tested in the premier league, only a stupid team wud pay over 2 mil for that imo

    Perch, colo, williamson are 3 cb’s we also have other players who if needed can play CB

  • 97 Sgt. Heagerty // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:07 PM

    Any news

  • 98 Mancgeordie // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:07 PM

    Look we are that desperate i would take richard dunne right now

  • 99 ross armstrong // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:07 PM

    top and bottom of it is if we get a center back or not our aim at the start of the season was to stay in the prem and look what we have achieved!! 36 pts with loads of games left ! we didnt even achieve 36 pts the year we got relagated! and a massive bonus is we have lately just signed a top notch striker with a formidable goal record!! ots not all dull and gloom if we dont sign anyone else in this window after all!!

  • 100 gorgonzola // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:08 PM

    dmac no turned down in the end

  • 101 JackButler // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:08 PM

    Beattie25 – It was reported a week or two ago that the player did not want him at the club as he walked away from us when the like’s of Colo, Raylor, Saylor,Jonas, Jose, Harper, Shola, Smith, Lovern, Guthrie, Krul and a few more stayed with us when we were relegated.

    Just because you have not heard or read the same article I and quiet a few others have does not mean that I’m full of shit, making up stories or claiming to be an ITK.

    No need to try to shout others down who give an informed opinion of our blog

  • 102 boater // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:08 PM

    Redondo – Honda’s gone to Lazio aint he? Kagawa would be even better.

  • 103 Stuart // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:08 PM

    @Beattie – The comments about players not welcoming back Bassong comes from an interview AP gave that was posted on here when he was first linked with us a few weeks ago.

    No-ones claiming to be insiders, we just read the facts before spouting off.

    1. The fans who accept we are not getting a CB and are happy we have got a CF are the fans who accept mediocrity.

    2. The fans who state that we will not sign a CB and say ‘I said it all along’ are the fans who breed negativity.

    3. The fans who believe that the window isn’t shut until 11 and anything is possible are the fans who create the positivity our club sorely needs.

    4. The fans who say ‘WE WILL SIGN A CB TODAY’ are the dreamers and the people we should all try to be.

    I am number 3, which one are you lot? Mostly number 1’s & 2’s… how apt

  • 107 YankToonFan // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:09 PM

    All we can do now is hope that Colo and Willo stay healthy. Otherwise we are in huge trouble. And considering the lack of pace those two have, we are vulnerable all the same.

    Risky, risky stuff.

    Prediction for tomorrow: 2-1 Blackburn Rovers.

    They are waiting for LAzio to agree on 15m.

  • 111 Spuggy // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:10 PM

    All those saying we don’t need a CB this window will change their tune if Collo or Willo get injured.

    Could be an idea to follow the Watford match, see if Mariappa is waving goodbye to the fans…?

  • 125 JackButler // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:17 PM

    redondo77 – I think the medical can be done after the window has shut, as long as transfer fee and personal terms are complete it’s ok to do the medical

In the summer we will fill in what is needed top 10 top 7 will be where we finish.

  • 137 sephir0 // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:21 PM

    At least we got our number 9 above anything else, somebody to help fire the goals in! IF we dont get a CB over the line, then maybe we can go with the “you score one, and then score two, but we score a f@ck load more than you” philosophy. :D

  • 138 davybtoon // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:21 PM

    Dannyo nzunzi played loads for the reserves very good player usually plays full back or on the wing

    Beattie – you are an odd one. You’re always telling people what to say and think. This blog doesn’t revolve around your mood swings – people can be as negative, cautious or optimistic as they want.

    On Bassong – I agree he is a Jonah – both previous clubs relegated and fell out of favour after one seasons at Spuds- as well as ‘the first to hand in a transfer request’ according to local press.

  • 152 James_NUFC_92 // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:27 PM

    Beattie – Sordell is goin to Bolton or Fulham, so the watford website bloggy thing reckons, they also think that its possible that they are losing Marriapa to us as well, the media bloke has been quoted as saying ‘ he didnt see his future at wigan’ me thinks he sees it at Nufc, dont think him playing means hes not coming, Pardew in london with Delboy and secretary maybe the deal is completed after millwall match.

    Mariappa will not move to Wigan, because he doesn’t want to go back playing in championship again next season.

  • 168 jesperfuglsang // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:33 PM

    Players leaving because we get relegated are not judas'; they just aspire to more and were probably also promised more.

    We had we fourth highest wage cap and we got relegated. The players failed us miserably.

    We wouldn’t be able to afford their wages; in my opinion more should have left, but they stayed because the pay was too good and no other club came calling.

    In my book that’s worse than requesting a transfer because you aspire to more.

    Just my opinion.

  • 169 davybtoon // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:34 PM

  • 170 redondo77 // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:35 PM

    If we change our policy ( age max 26), I think we can sign anyone easily within our budget.

  • 171 Beattie25 // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:35 PM

    I just think that Ashley is a man that craves attention for the nufc/sports direct brand and a big signing made at 10 o’clock at night will crave more publicity than one made at 3 in the afternoon.

    I’m not saying it will happen but it would be easy to divert attention, sign a player and then hold of announcing it until 10 o’clock!

    Wait and see but if it did happen it would be a master stroke in the art of publicity

    Birmingham are pulling themselves right into contention for automatic promotion. 3-1 up at Leeds.

  • 254 super magpie // Jan 31, 2012 at 9:17 PM

    Worst case scenario in the next few days- 11pm deadline strikes Krul,ba,Tiote all somehow join liverpool for a combined fee of £10 And Carroll, cabayes appeal gets denied and he is suspended for 4 games. We then play blackburn who go 3-0 up by 2 offside goals and 1 handball, ameobi then Misses 2 penalties then a Ben arfa wonder goal is ruled out because a fan has superglued himself to the net in protest over venkys after gaining inspiration from recent events. After a dismal game pardew comes out and says that we couldnt get the CB over the line, and says that the players will respond for Sunday. 2 days later a bust up between ameobi and best over who has the goals to game ratio, with, both are suspended from the team until further notice.on Sunday Newcastle go 3-0 against villa with 2 cisse goals and a free kick from Raylor, seemingly the game was won by the 84th minute until 4 goals by charles n zogbia wins the game. In this instance fans are calling for pardews sack spiralling in to a dismal run where we survive on GD

    Best scenario

    M biwa is brought in on a 4 and a half year deal
    Cabayes ban is withdrawn
    We hammer Blackburn 4-1 cisse and ba make shock returns braces for both

    Then we beat villa with a 96th minute free kick from Ryan Taylor wins the game, Chelsea and arsenal lose both their games and we are 4th

  • 255 Oleg G // Jan 31, 2012 at 9:18 PM

    Zigic with 4 goals. nice.

  • 256 Lurch86 // Jan 31, 2012 at 9:19 PM

    What annoys me is the strong position we find ourselfs in. Played well cant complain about the play we have brought in but. Pardew says he wants to keep hold of our star players. We are 1 CB away from finishing in a European spot and we cant sign one. Papiss is an amazing capture cant wait to see him at the Villa game. Were all saying look where we are but if we sign a centre half then europe here we come cant make sense of it all he has to do is be better than willo, cant cost that much!

  • 257 TimKrulFan // Jan 31, 2012 at 9:20 PM

    What a lot of whinging neggers on here tonite..we have negotiated our most successful transfer window under Fat Mike and you complain we haven’t yet signed a centreback! (there is still 5ominutes of the window left)
    Be patient! We bided our time and waited a year for a centreforward. We’ve only needed a centreback since Campbell retired last June.
    It’s good to see that WWJBD and Co. have tempered their ambition and will settle for what Sunderland achieved last year – a top 10 finish.
    The fact that a European place is there, within grasp is irrelevant. Stick to the plan. Jam Tomorrow ;-)

    Then tomorrow off to Blackburn for another great Best and Ameobi show and a guaranteed defeat because we have played better than them but can’t score a goal because the two strikers stand still waiting for the ball to be fired at them and they can’t control it or do anything with it at all. Simply not good enough.

    I’m a big supporter of the team and the players and generally don’t criticise players for trying hard for us but I have simply had enough of those two to the point where I now hate them and wish they would get out of the club.

    Haha solano think its more accepting that we wont get a CB in this Jan and the ones we have been linked with that were likely I wasen’t that keen on to begin with truth be told.

    But we have had a decent window, no one has been sold (yet) and we have a new striker so am not as full of complaints as normal mate

    U not content with this window overall?

  • 358 geordielad880 // Jan 31, 2012 at 10:17 PM

    im sick of hearing people going on about our lack of transfer activity, we shouldnt sign players for the sake of it, it has to be the right player, at the right price, we havent lost any of our big players, and added cisse, im over the moon with that, we will add players in the summer, and it gives the chance for a young players and squad players to prove a point, im very happy as it is, as i thought we would lose a top player, we will sign 3-4 players in the summer, we are making steady progress, something which has been needed for years, we are doing things right for once

  • 359 t00ntime // Jan 31, 2012 at 10:17 PM

    scottish reporters saying leon best at celtic is false.

    But who ever said he can go it frees up wages, think about it we have 2 great strikers, Ba and cisse
    and 1 average who is cover: best
    1 leaving a t the end of this season: lovenkrands
    and 1 pure sh!t shola

    so if we lose best we then need a striker again

  • 360 tom tomb // Jan 31, 2012 at 10:17 PM

    Agent Stardust – how about we sign a couple of top strikers purely for that one game? Then when the Dembas come back we can ask them how they feel about seeing our the season in the reserves or on the bench?

    Everton played half a season without any strikers – let’s not get carried away about one more game.

    If Best goes I’m cool.. Shola still a better all round (non-scoring) target man and we have 3 strikers including Arfa ahead of both of them by the end of the week.

  • 376 5Danny94 // Jan 31, 2012 at 10:21 PM

    We should go after “The African Neymar” Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the summer from Saint-Etienne. He’s looked incredible for Gabon in the Cup of Nations and he’s exactly the kinda player Newcastle are looking for: young, skillful and French-speaking. He would provide great cover for Ba and Cisse while he develops.

    Oh aye I still agree but I never expected anything else. Do think Cisse was a very impressive signing for us though and maybe a sign of a more flexible strategy from the skinny fat lad up top but that will no doubt be tested in the summer

    Still expecting Colo, Krul, Tiote and Ba to be on their bike come summer like and cheap replacements brought in but thats maybe just my negative side

We need to survive just 16 games without injuries to CB’s as no more cup games now. And then hopefully Douglas in during Summer!

  • 546 redondo77 // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:03 PM

    well… I guess MA gave Pardew 8m to spend, and Pardew spend it on Cisse alone

  • 547 euanpolo // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:03 PM

    Even if we don’t get a CB, which is looking likely now, it will still have been a very good window for us. A top striker in and no one lost is not bad going at all. We could always get another Kuqi but for CB if we got desperate, e.g. http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11704/7468976/Bluebirds-part-ways-with-Gyepes
    Perch is probably better anyway though.

  • 548 GeordieToon89 // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:04 PM

    could be worse we could of sold Ba, Tiote, Krul and not signed Cisse

  • 549 t00ntime // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:04 PM

  • 550 RobertNufc25 // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:04 PM

    Hey Alan Pardew what happened to the definite centre back and a no on a move for striker I’m just saying it looks like the other way round

  • 554 ToonCarl // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:04 PM

    We have kept Ba, Tiote, Cabaye, Collo and brought in Cisse. I wanted another centre back. We will just have to hope for no injuries. Lets get a great win on wednesday and push on up the league. HWTL

  • 555 Spuggy // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:04 PM

    Chuffed with Cisse like, we’d all be buzzing if we’d just signed him now, but disappointed in not getting a CB cover in. Very strange strategy which could go horribly wrong.

    It’s a gamble.

  • 556 davybtoon // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:05 PM

    we made the biggest signing of the window who would of said that at the start n were r all the ppl who said 100% tiote n ba n krul will b sold

  • 557 PLAN Z // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:05 PM

    That’s Plan Zee

    Made a New Year’s resolution not to post till window closed to avoid all the keyboard diarrhoea.

    See my young acolyte B who really doesn’t have a clue and can hardly even spell his name has been a total pain.

    He’s been sent to his room with some kleenex and a Mackem match day programme from May 1973.

    Far too many you have been throwing your toys at each other the last four weeks- some even call themselves Toon ‘fans’. Hate the players, the manager, the owner and each other more than the opposition.
    And we’re going to get relegated, and all our star players leave in the summer.
    And we don’t have a CB and they’re all going to be injured tomorow.
    Normal service has been resumed….

    maybe Santon will play CB and Jonas as LB for emergency. It could still work fine.

  • 564 ToonDownSouth // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:07 PM

    SSN is so embarassing…

  • 565 Toon1978 // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:07 PM

    6 goals put passed us in the last two games should have prompted ASH to push for a CB instead of looking for value for money all of the time. No ambition at all. Praying for Collo to return to his best and S.Tayor to hurry up and recover. Happy we ain’t lost anyone and happy we have signed Cisse. However, we are still short, same story EVERY transfer window. Watford have a player that will be unhappy that they have stopped him moving to and EPL club which could effect his form.

  • 566 Thump // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:08 PM

    @styla: The window is closed – the loan window is only open for Football League clubs.

    Toon78- in fairness it’s Watford’s right to do what the hell they want. Modric was miffed about staying at Spurs and he’s having his best ever season.

    Not ideal but not sure if a young Championship player as cover would make the difference between a european spot and not. A loan for an experienced defender whilst Taylor is out could have worked.
    There we go – at least the A-listers are still here lads.

    I’m in two minds whether to end my truce with MA,nobody being sold is a bonus,but I think thats only because that there wern’t any serious offers made for our top players,I am truly mystified why a CB wasn’t brought in even a loan deal,there has to be a bigger picture or why else would you sign a ?M striker and leave yourself so vunerable in defense,or maybe it has been yet another penny pinching monumental f*c*k up.

  • 609 James_NUFC_92 // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:15 PM

    If colo or Williamson get injured would anyone else like to see

  • 610 Dannyo // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:15 PM

    Would be nice to be able to confirm or deny wether we signed Mariappa or not.
    Several Watford fans said he was rushed off before all the other players.

    defence,
    beg your pardon.

    t00ntime

    I would rather not play Tiote as CB. if he played as CB, we won’t have strength in midfield. it would be more pressure on the defense

  • 615 Beattie25 // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:16 PM

    David Weir anyone?

  • 616 Scottishtoon95 // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:17 PM

    Is anyone else slightly upset that lovenkrance wasn’t sold to Rangers? Would have suited all parties. Should have bid five and a half million + Lovenkrance to get jelavic, then play him tommorrow instead of dumb and dumber.

    Jail for Ashley, we’ve been looking for defenders since the summer and still haven’t been able to get one.

    lol at tiote in cb how many pens per game?

  • 623 gonz // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:18 PM

    Mariappa deal fell through, fine with me! He was only ever going to be a squad player and back up to Willo or Colo. We didn’t see him as a starter and therefore weren’t going to pay more than 2m, which is fare for someone who has never stepped up to the top level and we’ll get our main targets in the summer (Douglas, Vertonghen)

  • 624 Spuggy // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:19 PM

    Ah well…

    Summer Targets starter for 10…

    – Mariappa
    – Vertonghen
    – Cissokho
    – Pieters
    – Holt
    – Hoilett

    Clear out the dead wood.

    Now, lets enjoy the rest of the season – all aboard the demba bus!

  • 625 euanpolo // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:19 PM

    Confirmed by David Craig that Mariappa is not coming.

  • 626 spitfire_ // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:19 PM

    F****d Ashley… now was the time to backing Pardew. If Willo or Colo goes injured all good work for first half of the season will be f****d up.

  • 627 Spuggy // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:20 PM

    Ah yes and Douglas

  • 628 BOOM BOOM THE 1ST // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:20 PM

  • 637 TimKrulFan // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:22 PM

    am not gunna moan about not getting a cb but as soon as one gets injured i will be ranting for the rest of the season

  • 638 redondo77 // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:22 PM

    MacToon

    the positive side is that we don’t want to sign any available defenders like QPR, but we will only sign really really good defender with cheap price and wage and in good age :D

  • 639 Spuggy // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:22 PM

    @ thump

    Yep hoilett on free but will be a bun fight for his signature, lots of team interested.

  • 640 Thump // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:22 PM

    lol JB I don’t even bother with that daft shite nowadays.

  • 641 GeordieToon89 // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:23 PM

    We should seriously try agree a pre contract with Douglas now seens though we can and wont cost a penny

  • 642 euanpolo // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:23 PM

    Vertonghen and Zaha in the summer please and maybe a left-back. If no one leaves that would do me, although I accept that’s a big if.

  • 643 spitfire_ // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:29 PM

    I really want to hear Pardew’s stupid explain about the CB hunt… I bet the guilt will be in high winter prices… What a pice of shit. We gave 2.5 mill for Ridgewell in august, now he is wba player for 2 mill or less… It’s pathetic.

  • 644 MagPieMan // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:34 PM

    It’s annoying knowing we have needed a centre back since the summer and we still couldn’t get one in. All this crap about not getting a striker in and definently getting a defender just make it even more annoying. I’m thrilled with the Cisse signing and was very surprised but that signing was meant to happen last summer. One injury to Collo or Willo and we are completely scr£wed, perch isn’t as bad as some make him sound but he is not a centre back, struggles against powerfull players because of his build and is small. We shouldn’t need to play players out of position. All I can hope is Kadar steps up and possibly others.
    And also Remi Street got injured today, I know he isn’t quite ready but we need all the cover we can get.

  • 645 JP...from The Rock // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:38 PM

    I am OK with this transfer window. I expected us to sign a striker way back in September in all honesty just not one as prolific as Cisse. So we didn’t get a defender, we’re risking it a bit but I believe with the fire-power and strength in our team up front and in midfield now we will prevent many teams from scoring more than us. I can’t wait to see Ba and Cisse together with Cabaye and Ben Arfa supplying them with ammunition.

    I am excited and ready to see how the rest of the season unfolds.

    HWTL!

  • 646 raiiney // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:44 PM

    Happy with this window to be honest, new no.9 in which is great, now we have a proven striker and an eager mate of his to go up next to him, the 2 dembas :D
    Despite not getting a defender, did anyone notice newcastles trickery in not letting ba available to agents, they stalled the flight home until late this afternoon so that they are on the plane all day, thus a deal could not be made in the latter part of the day, learning from our mistakes! Future is bright

  • 647 MagPieMan // Jan 31, 2012 at 11:52 PM

    I wouldn’t mind that much if pardew would actually play Kadar. I have seen him plenty of times for reservs and in his first team games. He looked very bright and I thought he wouldnt be out of place in the first team, he is very much like Collocini in the way he is calm under pressure and comfortable on the ball. He is tall with a good head on the ball and is faster than Collocini and definently Williamson. In my opinion Kadar is better than perch.

  • 648 Brutooon // Feb 1, 2012 at 12:18 AM

    JackButler // Jan 31, 2012 at 10:54 PM

    Ravel Morrison will be earning 65k a week if West Ham go up FFS

    West Ham is the “old” version of Newcastle United – paying high wages for a high risk player.

    Glad we are now over that period (i.e Viduka, Owen, Duff, Etc)

  • 649 imahornet // Feb 1, 2012 at 12:55 AM

    I have to agree with gonz. Even as a devoted Watford supporter I was surprised with Wigan’s interest in Mariappa, let alone Newcastle’s. Glad he’s still at Watford (because we seem to be hindering the development of some of our own players with loan deals), but he was prone to lapses of concentration, and communication, until Nosworthy joined us. I don’t watch much Premiership football, but what has happened to Williamson? Just asked because he was a better player at Watford than Mariappa (but will never forgive him for the way he left us).

    Hope the rest of the season goes well for you.

    Cheers, imahornet

  • 650 Benton Toon Exile // Feb 1, 2012 at 8:36 AM

    It is shameful the way our club have dealt with Mariappa.

    First they unsettle him, then make a derisory offer all the time telling Mariappa that they will be buying him so he rejected an offer from Wigan, then they refuse to pay the £2m they had already offered.
    This fella has now lost credibility with his own fans and must must think NUFC are a bunch of shits!

    Counting the days till Fat Boy and Lame Arse get out of our club.
