Demba Ba Joins Chelsea – Official

12:17 pm, Friday, January 4th, 2013 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 1,047 Comments

Chelsea have announced they have signed striker Demba Ba from Newcastle United on a three-and-a-half year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Demba Ba – signs for Chelsea

The 27-year-old has scored 13 league goals for the Magpies this season and in 58 games in all competitions he scored 29 goals – one goal per every two games.

We thank Demba Ba for his short 18 months at the club, where he helped us to 5th place in the league table last season, and he has scored 13 of our 27 league goals this season.

We expected the announcement before 12 noon today so he can play for Chelsea at Southampton tomorrow in the FA Cup 3rd round tie.

Ba will wear the number 29 shirt and could make his first return to St. James’ Park on Saturday, 2nd February in our home game with the Blues.

That should be interesting.

Comments welcome.

    so wots new

  • 2 rainrix // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:20 PM

    Oh well Dreamboat mark 2 should help soften the blow a bit ;)

  • 3 Dannyo // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:20 PM

    Bye bye Ba!

  • 4 Novocastrian66 // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:20 PM

    Glad the sideshow is over. Hopefully we can sort out our business in the next couple of weeks and get some players in. At least he left quickly we should thank him for that. He could have easily held out hoping for a better deal and left us in the lurch at the last minute.

  • 5 Magpie from Lithuania // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:21 PM

    bye bye demba, good luck to you, but not to chelsea. Thanks for the goals and strawberry syrup ;) i am relieved that this saga is over.

  • 6 JackButler // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:21 PM

    Was a great player for us, but I’m glad the saga is finally over and we can now move on. Thin we need a center half more than a striker as Cisse will flourish back in his intended position

  • 7 JackButler // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:21 PM

    Was a great player for us, but I’m glad the saga is finally over and we can now move on. Think we need a center half more than a striker as Cisse will flourish back in his intended position

  • 8 John Tudor // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:22 PM

    ashley deserves rebecca

  • 9 Salaam // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:23 PM

    I hope we get a CB before a striker, and a proper striker/CF before we try to sign some overpriced 27 year old winger/striker hybrid (no offense to remy) we dont need.

    Once we have a CB
    we cant be looking for someone to play out wide left…we have marv, fergy and obertan.
    FFS we need a proper CF for IF/WHEN cisse is injured – or just plain cannot score…(its possible folks!) Im not less comfy with ameobi, ranger, campbell and xisco – than I am with Marv, Fergy, HBA, Sammy and Obertan – MUCH MUCH less comfy.

    To me this means we need to sign a humble young cheap CF with good potential for bench/cup cover/reserves if need be. ANYONE…must be more likely to score than xisco, ranger, ameobi or the unproven campbell

  • 10 John Tudor // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:24 PM

    they are all capable given a proper side behind them

  • 11 Tommyy // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:25 PM

    I never took to Ba, and I’m really not upset he’s gone. He was always a mercenary so no bitterness there from me.
    Now if we lose Ben Arfa due to us not being ambitious enough I don’t think I could take that.

  • 12 BelfastMagpie // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:27 PM

    Glad it wasn’t Qpr..

    Good luck !

  • 13 One comment a day // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:28 PM

    Strong rumours Danny Graham to sign. Totally underwhelmed.

  • 14 WWYCD // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:28 PM

    Thank u Demba all the best big lad, enjoy Chelsea just don’t stick any goals past us ta

  • 15 sweendog // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:29 PM

    Ba .. shame on you .. jumping ship .. he could have waited until the summer .. no respect for him ..
    Moving on I hope remy and Sakho come in .. and I’ll be happy..

  • 16 Bryan // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:29 PM

    Lets not dwell on a player who is only in it for the money. Good luck to him. Money does not bring a person integrity, ethics or class. Three things Ba and his advisors clearly lack in abunance.
    In one short interveiw Debuchay has shown what I call real class in his approach to playing for our great football club. Lets hope this rubs off on all our team.

  • 17 Tommyy // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:31 PM

    Surely we won’t sign Graham, was decent last season but now the Swans have started playing slightly different shape up top he’s been deemed surplus due to not being technical enough for Laudrup.
    If that’s the case for Swansea he’s not goo enough for us. Add that to the fact he’s solely a striker and doesn’t play left or right we’d have the same issue. Unless he was signing for back up he just wouldn’t be worth it.

  • 18 Dannyo // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:31 PM

    GFNFrance ?@GFN_France
    According to RMC, #QPR are no longer trying to steal #Remy away from going to #Newcastle. They have dropped out of the race!

  • 19 Graeme // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:33 PM

    Is it too much to expect that some “arrangement” has been put in place that ensures Ba will be “Injured / Ill / Indisposed! – when it comes to the SJP fixture on the 2nd February??

  • 20 Tommyy // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:34 PM

    Graeme – If not he’s going to get one hell of a backlash, Carroll style.

  • 21 BelfastMagpie // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:34 PM

    Would sign Danny Graham as back up & sign Remy too.

  • 22 Dannyo // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:35 PM

    Stop wishing injuries on players.
    It’s beneath you, and it’s not even the slightest funny.

  • 23 rainrix // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:35 PM

    Graeme…. if you count “sniper in the 7th tier” as an “arrangement” then yes there has been one ;)

  • 24 Spreadthetoon // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:36 PM

    Great news……the circus has left SJP and we can now concentrate on the team and not 1 player!

    Debuchy is gr8 signing…..will make a huge difference and shore up the defensive line/shape – Simpson has not been good this season and wants to go to Ldn….let him go then.

    Moving fwds lets land the players we need! HWTL

  • 25 Conaldo (The Wizard...Also Bestest Friends With Paul Scharner) // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:36 PM

    Krul
    Debuchy Saylor colo santon
    Cabaye tiote Anita
    Marveaux cisse squidward

    (I’m not sure when cabaye and Taylor will be available)

    That should be enough to get 10 points from the next 4 games, which would probably send us up to around 10th?
    Here’s hoping.

  • 26 BelfastMagpie // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:37 PM

    Think he would be starting for Swansea Tommy,if Michu wasn’t a goal machine.

  • 27 Constanstine // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:37 PM

    I respect him for his goals and contribution to this club. There was no doubt that he gave his best during his time here and helped us to achieve 5th place last season. As he stated that this will benefit both himself and the club, Cisse will have the chance to shine. Good luck to Ba.

  • 28 Indian Magpie // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:37 PM

    Danny Graham is better than Shola any day of the week.

  • 29 gaz 44 // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:37 PM

    Mr.tuff with What you put in the times link would go with What i was saying . between 9-10mill.. we’ve got them down from 11.4mill apparently just hoping we don’t push our look too far and sign him up

  • 30 WWYCD // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:37 PM

    Wishing injury on former players…stay classy Mags

  • 31 Pardews Perfect Battleplan // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:37 PM

    i think we need somebody who can play lw and striker/withdrawn striker. marveaux looks decent but mostly through the middle where he has more options, less good on the left but i wouldn’t mind too much if he was our top option there.

  • 32 Les Grossman // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:37 PM

    Tommyy
    We have an out and out right winger in Cisse…whats your beef???

    ;-)

    Time for a banner change me thinks Ed!

  • 34 Transfer Sage // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:38 PM

    If somebody said you can have a Ferrari for free but have to swap it on 18 months for 7 million you would say yes

  • 35 Batfastard // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:39 PM

    Most chelski fans are are not happy about ba signing they wanted falcao or cavanni to push for the title

  • 36 Graeme // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:39 PM

    Rainrix @ 23

    Now mopping up tea – a brilliant comment, that made me chuckle lol

  • 37 Neil // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:40 PM

    Not if the guy selling the Ferrari said you can have it for 3 years then pulls the plug after 18 months TS – That’s why fans are annoyed!! PS we only get £5m not £7m

  • 38 Les Grossman // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:40 PM

    Transfer Sage
    I would say thats a great analogy…….if it was…..its not.
    And its bordering on ridiculous!!

  • 39 Pardews Perfect Battleplan // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:41 PM

    @les lol. would hope for
    obertan – cisse – marveaux/new player

    until we have fit players then

    hba – cisse -marveaux/new player
    with cabaye just behind them

  • 40 rainrix // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:41 PM

    Who exactly has wished an injury on demba? Im pretty sure myself and Graeme were joking, people are so tetchy nowadays :(

  • 41 spitfire_ // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:41 PM

    One wh^ore less in Newcastle… move on. I wish him to be in perfect health… until february 2nd… the turning point of his kn… I mean career.

  • 42 Dannyo // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:41 PM

    Yup, time to swap the Senegalese head with yet another French one Ed :)

  • 43 Indian Magpie // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:42 PM

    That ferrari went for 5 not 7

  • 44 rainrix // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:42 PM

  • 45 Magpies-till-d3ath // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:42 PM

    Sign Frodo and Bilbo! Gandalf on loan would be nice!:D

  • 46 Tsunki // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:43 PM

    Les its not bad because the Ferrari in this scenario cost nothing. Although the salesman at the dealership was a bit of a crook….

  • 47 nufc786 // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:44 PM

    would love to see Moussa Sissoko come in apparently spurs are leading the race :(

  • 48 Les Grossman // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:44 PM

    Transfer sage, BTW
    7 Million minus agents fees, minus loyalty bonus…choking as i write this, minus wages and insurance….

    Id say F*** that, its been an expensive friggin ferrari that makes sh!te noises, handbrake turns and then just drives away at a great rate of Knots….with a slow flatty :-)

  • 49 John Tudor // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:45 PM

    sold ferrari replaced with fiat punto or blritish leyland marina

  • 50 bigiffius // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:45 PM

    Good luck to him. I do hope he doesn’t get a bad reception when he returns. If you were in his shoes and got offered double the money to play for the European Champions, you think you’d turn it down?? You’d be an idiot not to take it!

  • 51 Batfastard // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:47 PM

    The ba sale probably just covered debuchey signing the two best players I think we could get at CB and ST is mbwia and doumbia from cska but that would cost 18-20 mil think we will spend 10-12 to be honest here’s hoping

  • 52 Les Grossman // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:48 PM

    Biggifius,
    Agreed, however….
    You missed out the bit where he professed on HIS twitter account to being totally happy at Newcastle, didnt want to move and was not money orientated!!

    Then why didnt he sign a New IMPROVED contract.

    Dont mind him having MORE ambition than the owner, but either shut the fek up or tell the truth!

  • 53 Novocastrian66 // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:51 PM

    Not having this that Ba hasn’t any class or lacks integrity. His advisors are a different matter. During all the speculation he has kept performing. Some might say that he was playing for himself and his own end, show me a striker who isn’t selfish and I’ll show you one who doesn’t score. Personally I think he is replaceable. He has down well for us but he isn’t a work beater.

  • 54 WWYCD // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:51 PM

    Why’s all the complaining about the money for? Regardless of what we got for him we would of seem very limited amount of it invested in the squad.

    We had him he scored goals kept us in the league and took us to 5th last season. Done more than a lot of strikers who have been with us and left for less plus he went to the champions of Europe who challenge for the title/cups every year

    Head up and move on its now time to see Ashley (whose been accepted so readily) to invest and do us some good

  • 55 tequilamag // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:51 PM

    For all you posters slagging BA, without his goals this season we would be bottom 3 if we stay up then his goals will be the reason why. It`s quite pathetic the comments on here, you act like immature boys who are spitting the dummy because some girl has left them for a new bf with more money.

  • 56 psutty80 // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:54 PM

    According to nufc stats on twatter, Newcastle are in talks with Rémy’s advisors in France.

  • 57 Tsunki // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:54 PM

    Spoof – dunno if you are still here mate but if you want to look for mistakes from defenders and GK’s then you will have a full time job on your hands. Th bigger picture is what is happening to the entire unit that drags players into unfamiliar areas, and attempting to cover places where others should be.

    In Jonas’ case I was right when I said that by design he is given a large area left and rear of midfield to cover Santon excessive runs and lack of tracking. Consequently those looking at Jonas the winger were frustrated at him ‘disappearing’ in games, and ridiculing his fabled workrate. I said that whoever replaced him (calls for marveaux to start instead) would either have to be ‘ruined’ in the same way or there would be problems down the left side. Cue Obertan coming in and while his tracking was not bad the other day, Jonas he is not, therefore Santon has been cruelly exposed. We now had TWO FB’s who could not cover their positions properly, cue Willo and now Colo as the scapegoats for a badly stretched defence. If you consider putting Perch in for Colo, what do you think would happen then? Do you think Colo has been as culpable for goals leaked as Santon? Please. Having barely-functioning FB’s means the CB’s are under the cosh for crosses all the time, the best they can do is either wait for them to rain in or go out and run the winger to the byline themselves, hoping a DM like Perch/Tiote/Anita will drop into the centre for cover. They chose the former, hence we have conceded the most goals from headers in the PL. Thats because of sheer volume mate, not because of aerial ineptitude. Law of averages.

    A world class defender in a crap defence will look as crap as his buddies.

  • 58 tequilamag // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:56 PM

    Tsunki, excellent analysis.

  • 59 Dannyo // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:57 PM

    Samuel Ameobi ?@Sammy_Ameobi
    So Debuchys pretty sick!

  • 60 check the toastie // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:57 PM

    Wish all the best to Demba Ba, the lad is in a funny position regards robustness of his knee and obviously has got a great contract, No hard feelings here, just hope that Cisse can now be played through the middle like he should have been played all season.

    Pleased Ba has finally gone.

    Over the moon with Debuchy, cried out for a decent RB since we got promoted, bye bye Simpleson, enjoy the fizzy pop leagues.

  • 61 WWYCD // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:57 PM

    GET HIM OUT NOW – HE’LL INFECT THE REST OF THE SQUAD: RT“@Sammy_Ameobi: So Debuchys pretty sick!”

    Hahaha sorry but this made me laugh

  • 62 bambams // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:58 PM

    I am more concerned that we had to wait for the bank to open this morning for chelsea’s cash to clear before we announced the debuchy officially

    Expect more signings ?

  • 63 Mister Tuff // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:58 PM

    gaz44 @29. Ref Remy I hope we get him. Last year before he was injured people were saying his value was £20million. So with his lapse in form, and value, he probably fits into the Toons -purchasing policy. So typical type of Toon purchase bit of a gamble. bit of a car theme on here at the moment -following that recently read one French coach described Remy as well tuned as an F1 car.

  • 64 Big Pappa Cissé // Jan 4, 2013 at 12:59 PM

    I hope Simmo makes it into training to see what a modern day full back can do

  • 65 Dannyo // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:00 PM

    @Tsunki
    Very good and well thought through analysis.

  • 66 Big Pappa Cissé // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:02 PM

    Really sad to see Ba leave :( . But bringing in dreamboat 2 has softened the blow a bit :). All the best to Demba as he has done right by me and his goals have helped us get a lot of points. I hope he does well at Chelsea, just not for two games a year against us :)

  • 67 Tsunki // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:03 PM

    Goals per pound, Ba was decent value. And he is typical of the game. His agents dont come out of this well though but thats the business so suck it up. We have a no9 anyway, and hopefully the backup is being lined up now. I am confident that there is stuff being negotiated right now, every bit as tangible as Debuchy (where the news was politically leaked ages ago imo).

    Whatever happens transfer wise, February will be a different month again on the field.

    Anyone want to vote now on this choice -

    Relegation or Lose the derby? Ha ha ha.

  • 68 david toon toon // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:04 PM

  • 70 sirtoongospel // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:05 PM

    Just read his interview on the Chelsea site. Nice tip of the hat to your former club and its supporters there Demba. Oh, that’s right, you didn’t. Just basically put both us and West Ham down as not being good enough for you.

    I wonder in the coming days if he even mentions the fans and club who gave him a brilliant platform.

  • 71 Tsunki // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:05 PM

    Cheers Dannyo. I like to think, occasionally. I have a bit of a headache now though.

    Ba will probably doff his cap just before they face us. I hope we stuff them by that time our team should be decent(er).

    Dont think Ed will rush to change the banner just yet, although he has taken his time removing Pard’s Halo. :)

  • 79 Jayden // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:11 PM

    Wait, we signed Dreamboat II on Simmo’s birthday? LOL, yeah, Happy Birthday Danny! For your present, we’ve bought somebody to replace you, so you can put your feet up <3

  • 80 Spreadthetoon // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:12 PM

    Demba Ba has no emotional ties to any club, he plays for himself…its business….and considering we got him on a free we cannot complain……..my only disappointment is that we put Ba is the shop window to the detriment of Cisse and the team as a whole. I think Cisse is a better out and out striker so I thank you Ba for your services and wish you well…..your a mercenary and you’ve done ya job….now be gone!

  • 83 darrenfletcher88 // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:13 PM

    Any interviews yet or pics of are new fill back??

  • 84 newcben // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:14 PM

    Need Remy now and either Samba, Sakho, Hangerland (or some decent CB).

    Tiote is going away soon with AFCON but I feel with Anita hitting form and Cabaye coming back we will be ok and Bigi is really proving himself even as a rookie.

    My team would be.

    —————-Krul—————
    Debuchy–Colo–STaylor–Santon
    ———-Tiote—Cabaye———-
    Marv———HBA———-Remy
    —————Cisse—————-

    Bench.
    Harper
    Sakho
    Jonas
    Anita
    Bigi
    Shola

    I’m still not sold on Cisse as he looks so clumbsy even when banging them in last year BUT missing the sitters I wasn’t convinced would of much preferred Ba up top but no one is bigger than the club!

    For tougher games where we need to stay tighter I’d go.

    —————Krul—————
    Debuchy–Colo–STaylor–Santon
    ———–Tiote—Anita———–
    HBA———Cabaye——–Remy
    —————Cisse—————

  • 85 two steps forward one step back // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:14 PM

    Ba has been great for us, and good luck to him, though not Chelski.
    Just compare him with the other great payday forward Mr Owen.
    Now who did we get better value from while they were here ?

    Next a top CB, plus forward and Sissokho for an early Christmas

  • 86 hatem786 // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:14 PM

    here is the first words of the greedy b……d and ed plz remove him…Demba, welcome to Chelsea. What are your first impressions?

    It feels good to be here, I’m very happy and very proud. This training ground is massive, it has good facilities and will only help my work.

    It was important for me, and for Newcastle, to get my future sorted and now we can move on. Now they have the whole month to buy someone and for me as well, the sooner the better. Now I am here I just need to get settled in.

    Interest in you was well-reported. Was it a difficult decision in joining Chelsea?

    When the club who won the Champions League wants you, the decision making is very easy. This club is massive and that’s something that helped the decision a lot. It was not a hard one.

    I remember the last game we played. It was tough. They dominated the whole game against us and we lost 2-0 at Stamford Bridge. When you see a team coming to Newcastle and winning 3-0 like they did last season, you know it will be hard to face teams like that. Now I am on the other side I will be happy to do the same to the other teams.

    I am also happy to be back in London. It means everything to be here. I think I will not live far from the training ground. I am a city boy, but I have two kids and a wife, and it is different.

    Do you know anyone at the club already?

    I know Eden Hazard a little bit. I met him through a friend and [goalkeeping coach] Christophe Lollichon as well. I met him some times in France, so there are a couple of faces I know a little bit.

    Your career has been an incredible journey, but you seem settled in the Premier League?

    In two years now in the Premier League I have learned a lot and I keep learning. I just want to keep playing football and trying to score goals. I try to be strong mentally. This is a big part of the success of someone. If you are strong mentally then you have good chances to succeed.

    Yesterday I was looking back and smiling to myself, saying “Yes, I’ve done it.” I feel very proud, not only for me but the people who supported me over the years – my agent for instance who has been there since I was 15, my mum as well because when I skipped school she was afraid but today I am very proud for my family and today.

    I never lost belief in my football though, never. You keep working and things come. Rewards always come.

    You also settled in quickly at both your previous clubs in England…

    Hopefully I can do the same here, it would be good. This club is at another level, it isn’t West Ham or Newcastle. They are both big clubs with a strong history, but Chelsea is Chelsea and you cannot compare. It will be easier with world-class players around, who make the football look so easy.

    I hope they can create a lot of chances for me when I play. I have watched some replays of some games to see how the team is playing and hopefully it will be good.

    Is it fair to say you play better as a lone striker than in a pair?

    I don’t know if it’s fair to say. It doesn’t matter if you have one, two or three forwards. You always have someone supporting you and more than one player thinking of scoring goals.

    When you play with two both will try to score goals, and the percentage chance can increase automatically. With another striker I can do a bit more around the pitch and not just be focused in the penalty area. With only one striker it can be good also because you have wingers helping you. It really doesn’t matter for me.

    Are you fit and available to play for this weekend’s FA Cup game against Southampton?

    I am fit. I played Southampton recently and we had a bad experience. We had a bad game from the first to the last minute, so hopefully if I am part of the squad it will be another story.

  • 87 newcben // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:17 PM

    I defo agree with Sissokhon as well but i can not see Ashley parting with that much money for four players in one window would be about.
    Debuchy – 5
    Sakho – 8
    Remy – 10
    Sissokho – 9

    with only 7 coming in for Ba.

    I no this is old news so shouldn’t really bring it up however I’m sure we never spent all that 35m from Carroll….

    For the record Cisse was our top scorer in 2012. By a distance. He has out scored Ba goals per game in his whole career, and will continue to do so. My feeling is Papiss will score between now and end if May than Ba will.

    Tsunki

    Well put. The problem still remains that we need our FBs to defend. Its okay for midfielders to drop back to cover but Tiote being slightly off form and Colo less than his best hasn’t helped.

    Maybe we do need a nippy libero instead of using our midfielders to cover the DM roles all the time.

  • 100 bambams // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:32 PM

    Not worried about losing Tiote for acon as we have bigi and anita who can do a good job.

    Our team will very soon pick itself with 11 first choice players, this cannot be good.

    I hope, no pray that we get a cb and striker that will improve us. Only problem is I can see another player leaving first !

    Exactly right, Demba. West Ham and Newcastle are both big clubs with a strong history. Chelsea Ain’t Got No History, and they know it ;)

  • 102 Nufc-83 // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:37 PM

    Glad Ba’s gone such a greedy player and even if he had 20+ goals would rather Cisse in the middle. That opinion may have changed if two wingers played alongside Ba and not Cisse but it was heartbreaking to see such a top class goalscorer struggling on the wing and not being passed to when in excellent positions.

  • 104 Wayayman // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:38 PM

    @Tsunki
    Exactly what I was trying to say the other day. Anyone who has played even amateur football in Central Defence will know your fullbacks have to be disciplined and the midfielders have to track back. Players who instinctively ‘drop in’ are worth their weight in gold. Gerrard, Lampard, Speed, Batty, Dog Shagger Keane, Makelele, etc all made themselves first names on the teamsheet because of this.
    Tiote was like this most of last season, this season he’s just giving the ball away too many times when we are flooding forward which exposes the central defenders who are too disciplined to do a Socrates…

    Would look to try and offload Tiote. Never been his biggest fan and always thought he was overarted as his distribution has always been poor. Number 1 attribute for Cm regardless if defensive or not is vision/passing. Give it away in the middle and you are in trouble.

  • 110 Tsunki // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:46 PM

    My worry for tiote is that when he comes back from ACoN he might need a cushion. I fear he will come back to a team doing ok without him.

    from nufc.com

    If our understanding of the UEFA regulations is correct, Debuchy would be eligible to appear for Newcastle in this season’s Europa League, despite previously playing for Lille in the Champions League:

  • 114 Rake // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:47 PM

    Ranger or Campbell against Brighton? or both?

  • 115 JackButler // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:49 PM

    Dannyo

    I think Pardew is prioritizing the league and is afraid of loosing any more players to injury.

    If Colo and Cisse pick up knocks against Brighton we are in the shyte in the league. The FA cup and Europa League are two distraction we don’t need with our league position

  • 116 Tsunki // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:49 PM

    Have to say itsa cardinal sin for a DM not to have decisive distribution skills, its basically part 2 of the 2 requisites for the position. Tiote struggling with that.

  • 117 gorgonzola ( former Pecorino former to gorgonzola) // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:49 PM

    Ba to me has proven to be a bit of a bastard in my eyes. he did play for himself on numerous occasions Cisse was alone he chose to go for goal from exuberant positions. I dont like players like that.

    He would never work in a manure or Barca on the other hand he aint no Ibra so he cant act that he is good enough for the selfishness..

    All in all good riddance.

    One problem is I dont feel Remy is a good enough replacement personally. But I could be proven wrong if we get him

  • 118 Dannyo // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:51 PM

    @JB
    Ye, well, i have to agree with him on that if that is the case, which i too think it is.
    I’m not too bothered about the FA Cup this season, altho i’d prefer not to lose out against Brighton again, or a lower league team for that matter.
    I cannot for the life of me see how the team setup will be tomorrow now tho.

  • 119 Tsunki // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:51 PM

    Indian – I think you are correct he should be able to feature in europe.

  • 120 AusMagpie // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:51 PM

    Apparently Ba described it as an “easy decision”.

    Dog. Glad he’s gone.

  • 121 Transfer Sage // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:53 PM

    I still don’t mind the Ba deal.

    We paid him an average wage and he have a good return. A bit selfish but cost us nothing upfront and we got 5 million for him in the end.

    It’s just like loaning a player but getting a bit of money at the end.

    He served his purpose which was to ensure a decent finish last year and now we have cisse and hopefully remy soon we can kick on.

    He was signed as a stop gap hence the contract he was given, he needed a decent club and we needed a decent forward

    Lets move on and lot the future

  • 122 JackButler // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:53 PM

    Dannyo

    I’d love to see the like’s of Campbell and Abied get a start along with Streete and Fergie. It’s a perfect time to give them a full game when I think most fans will understand we are focusing on the league rather than cups

  • 123 Tsunki // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:53 PM

    Dannyo – just brace yersel’ man we are going to give brighton their annual present. :(

    So, Remy and Sissokho high on the radar still?

  • 124 Big Pappa Cissé // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:53 PM

    We should send Tiote to Dortmund and let him practice on that passing machine because he couldn’t pick out what to wear let alone one of our players. He has been shocking lateley and I would not hessitate if Pardew dropped him for Bigi who is our best youngster ATM

  • 125 Dannyo // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:56 PM

    @Tsunki
    We won’t be going after a midfielder mate, we’ve got candidates in the plenty, injured and not. Maybe in the summer tho.
    QPR has apparently backed off Remy for now.

    On Brighton, maybe a passionate youngster display?
    I’d be happy with that.
    Campbell getting a start would make my day despite result, have great faith in him.

  • 126 Dannyo // Jan 4, 2013 at 1:57 PM

    @JB
    Yep, totally agree, but if we play youngsters here and get through, i suggest we continue that in the next round too no matter who we face.

  • 127 ToonDownSouth // Jan 4, 2013 at 2:01 PM

    Everyone now says they’d be happy playing the youngsters in the cup, but when we do that and get knocked out I have no doubt everyone’ll be calling Pardew a moron for not picking a stronger team.

Something that will never happen at nufc with dickhead owner. I work in a factory and earn just over 300 quid a week,if I was offered another job with 600 quid a week and better prospects,I wouldn’t hesitate.

    I reckon that tav, Streete, cambell will start.

    I think it might look a little like this

    Krul
    Tav Willo Streete fergie
    Tiote
    Marveaux Anita squidward
    Shola Campbell

    Shola and Campbell up together may work, as cambell on his own will probably just get bullied off the ball.

  • 157 kingkilkline // Jan 4, 2013 at 2:28 PM

    Didn’t want to see him go but tbh he has no loyalty. Look back at all of his moves. Money related every single one. Chelsea without lampard and terry will struggle anyway after this season. They are their core.
    We need striker but not Remy for me. Hooper from Celtic is a better bet.
    It’s the formation needs sorting – our best team
    Krul
    Debuchy Saylor Colo Santon
    Tiote Anita
    HBA cabaye Marv
    Cisse

  • 158 JackButler // Jan 4, 2013 at 2:28 PM

    I think this is a great opportunity to bring Campbell up at some stage. In fact a big shame if he doesn’t get a nod either subbing Ranger or instead of him. Putting Ranger or xisco on would be going through the motions, they both, for various reasons, dont figure long-term lets be honest.

    Having Benny back will be a massive boost for us, I just hope that Cab’s rediscovers his form as he was poor before his injury though there is some talk that he was carrying that injury for some time

    Good loan just been extended today but no mention of Dummett extension. Inman also extended his loan.
    Either way field the future at Brighton.

  • 184 tequilamag // Jan 4, 2013 at 2:56 PM

    Lennon, who is on a high following Sunday’s superb win at Dundee United, added: “Paul Dummett’s loan has been extended until the end of January, which means he’ll be available to play against Celtic in the semi-final of the League Cup.”

  • 186 Dannyo // Jan 4, 2013 at 2:57 PM

    @Breno95
    Ouch man, do check facts before u start slating people for not knowing anything.
    Good has extended his stay until Feb 2nd.
    Dummet will stay until the end of January so he can play in their league cup semi final, then maybe until the end of the season.

    I’ll even back this up.

    What a nobend…

  • 187 Transfer Sage // Jan 4, 2013 at 2:58 PM

    Hopefully we get remy soon an then in the summer look to replace shola with another strong centre forward (who can also play a bit).

    That would give is those 3, cisse, remy and new player (or shola) plus Adam Campbell who needs to start getting games. Even if its just a cup game as a sub.

  • 188 Tsunki // Jan 4, 2013 at 2:59 PM

    off NUFC.COM-

    Defender Dummy has also been granted a loan extension and will now stay with the Buddies until at least the end of January – meaning that he’ll be available for a League Cup semi-final tie against Celtic at Hampden Park

  • 189 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Jan 4, 2013 at 3:01 PM

  • 197 tequilamag // Jan 4, 2013 at 3:05 PM

    Tsunki, not sure anyone will but Simmo while he is injured with a broken toe especially as he will be available on a free in the summer, I suspect he will do a Guthrie.

  • 198 Dannyo // Jan 4, 2013 at 3:07 PM

    @Tsunki
    Add to that, that AP speaks of having more quality in certain areas, then proceeds to bring in someone in Simmos position in general…

  • 199 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Jan 4, 2013 at 3:07 PM

    Tsunki…Stick with me mate, I’ll bring you the latest news…as it happens, give or take a few hours or in some instances days ;)

    Would you try to keep Simmo for the rest of the season? What are we realistically going to get from him? £2-3m? I’d say “if” we can, then we should keep him. That is unless that money is the make or break in getting a new CB in – or if that would push us over the purple quota – god forbid!

  • 200 Tsunki // Jan 4, 2013 at 3:08 PM

    I expected Debuchy to be wiping away steak bake crumbs and have a blob of custard from his caramel doughnut on his shirt.

  • 207 Nufc-83 // Jan 4, 2013 at 3:16 PM

    If we get 2mill for simmo i would snatch any clubs hand off. Tav isnt much worse if any than simmo aswell as anita and perch who can cover it. That 2mill could certainly go towards getting a cb as some of the reports have good quality cbs going at around 2-3mill.

  • 208 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Jan 4, 2013 at 3:16 PM

    One comment….good use of the one post :)

    Would look a bit odd being off centre though. That being the case, just had a little google for some other words with “BA” in the middle…it came up with moneyBAgs. Still off centre, back to the drawing board.

  • 209 Tsunki // Jan 4, 2013 at 3:17 PM

    Although practicality suggests an offer to put ‘CA’ before and ‘YE’ after. Number still a problem tho.

  • 210 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Jan 4, 2013 at 3:17 PM

    and before you say it’s not important for Ba to be in the centre, he wont be put on the left!

    Ibiza
    I had the image of the fat bastard in the background of a Greggs shop handing over some pies to Debuchy who was pushing the pram with Simmo in who was spitting out the dummy!
    I think any CB signage will be dependent upon monies contributed from Simmo, and as the lad has not had a good season, wouldn’t commit to SJP and has arguably disrupted our defensive shape I would suggest sell him for whatever we can get. QPR and Reading in the hunt….so I think £3m to our relegation rivals is only fair :)

  • 214 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Jan 4, 2013 at 3:21 PM

    Tsunki…Knowing Ashley and his money saving techniques, i’m surprised he didn’t give Debuchy the number 19 shirt and just misspell his name.

  • 224 Spreadthetoon // Jan 4, 2013 at 3:42 PM

    With Good extending his contract with Bradford leads me to believe that we will be definitely signing a CB this window, if not two…..otherwise this does not make sense?

  • 225 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Jan 4, 2013 at 3:48 PM

    Ibiza…I guess you are right. I just think it is a sign of respect to be upfront.

    …It reminds me of Enrique – a very good player for us while he was here, but he didn’t bother either with being upfront and honest!

    Hmm…I don’t have time for these people anyway.

    Ok thats the last dig at proudtobageaordie I promise. Unless he comes up with more stuff of course.

  • 242 beefman13 // Jan 4, 2013 at 4:04 PM

    Great signing with debuchy eventually but he is a french international so you cant ask for much more, given it was probably 4 months to late, but that is all known about and history, which has to be learned from just as our relegation season was learned from and we have done fantastically well over the last three previous season.

    Anothe two hopefully to come in which i believe will and a striker within 7/10 days then that vital centre haf prob nearer the transfer end date, even though the quicker thew better would be lovely.

    In all reality the summer activities were the first major bollox since relegation, and they have said it was only the extra centre back which they are holding their hand up for as we had 4/5 who could play right back, maybe a fair point at that, but you do need quality to get anywhere near the champs league and we punched above our weight last season and it needed more playes in of quality to push on.

    There is no getting away from the fact that a fit cabaye and ben arfa and saylor would have made big differences to us this season, and the fact that our manager is stuck in his over cautious predictable ways concerning long balls and our inability to mix it up for free kicks and for me wrong players chosen for to long, all of which means we have been sussed.

    Many a west ham fan has said Pardew got found out after their excellent first season and his ego and stubborness have to be controlled for all our goods if we are not going to be hung out with the washing like wet ham and charlton were and even the saints to an extent.

    Actually does anyone thinks the alleged age restriction on buying player is a bit stupid? i mean..defenders..particularly CB…could have a longer career which could go to 35 or 36 and still plays very well. Why do they only seem to target really young CB? You cant go with full squad of young players you have to have experience in the team…all youth is not going to work…and even if you buy some 29 30 years old for like 5 mil u might still sell them for 3 when they are 32…its not really bad business if they are really good players :/

  • 278 wreker16 // Jan 4, 2013 at 4:36 PM

    Having read ba’s comments in his first interview, I don’t think they were that bad with regards to newcastle.

    He said that he had a bad experience last time he played Southampton, said Chelsea dominated us when we played at Stamford bridge and that it would be easier to score with world class players around him who make football look easy.

    Oh and he said that newcastle was a big club with a strong history but Chelsea is Chelsea and u can’t compare.

    There is an elemen of truth in all that at some point

  • 279 Jayden // Jan 4, 2013 at 4:38 PM

  • 282 Tsunki // Jan 4, 2013 at 4:41 PM

    I said a while back, when debuchy was supposed to be coming last time, that Carr & Co had a dastardly plan to revolutionise football by fielding a devastatingly handsome team which would distract even the most macho player on the opponents side. The plan is starting to form. I can see the commentary now changing to

    ‘Debuchy now on the ball, weeping his hair back and sideways he moves inside towards the centre, winking at Shelvey as he glides by, threading a good-looking pass to the smouldering Cabaye, who blows a kiss and flashes his twinkling smile at the ref who fails to notice him elbowing Gerrard under the cheekbone…attractive ball slotted through to cisse who slides the ball into the net as the hapless Reina is mesmerised, looking deep into those big bottomless pools of Dreamboats eyes..’

  • 283 nick_9 // Jan 4, 2013 at 4:41 PM

    Dreamboat 2? Thought that was debuchy?

    Hope we don’t have endless article on Ba every time he bags a few goals like we have with Carroll. Bored of demba Ba already and hope we can all move on quickly

  • 288 Tsunki // Jan 4, 2013 at 4:46 PM

    DB2? are you talking about Remy now ptbg? Is the medical a cert then? from what I gather the medical in his case wont be straightforward by any means, he has a couple of underlying issues and a history…

    is this what you are staking your claim on? –

    Remy to Newcastle: Although Marseille ‘Sporting Director’ José Anigo denied that the club have received an offer for the player, many in the French press believe that Newcastle have made an enquiry to Marseille about the player. Remy is said to be Pardew’s number one choice to replace Demba Ba and at 8:00 (GMT) it was reported that Newcastle have agreed a fee to sign the player of around 8.75 million pounds.

    Open Letter to Mike Ashley

    Dear Mr Ashley, We have lost our top goalscorer because of the fact you could not give him the contract a top striker deserves. He then goes off and signs for a team that finished below us last season.

    Because of our History, Heritage, and future Could you please now sell the Club to someone who can take us on to the next level .

    It is now clear you cannot take us on to that next level .
    Please sell the club to someone who can, as you have no right to hold us back , It would be selfish to do so .

    Our future should not now be dictated by you If you cannot take us to the next level .

    This Football Club , Newcastle United, belongs to the people of the north east, .It is we who have built it up with over 100 years of support and dedication..You have been here a few short years and are now holding us down , holding the club back..

    Please do not take a selfish view, sell the club to someone who can take us to the next level.

    Our history , our heritage ,and future does not belong to You Mr Ashley.

    And you have no right to hold this club back at a level you think we are going to accept ..We’r not.

    You have just bought a Casino for Fifty Million!! pounds sterling..you have also put 10 Million! into another football club a few miles north of here ..yet you cant keep our top striker ? and you wont pay top money to replace our top striker?, scratching around again on behalf of a magnificent Club….. Newcastle United….

    You are now holding the club back Mr Ashley please sell up if you cant take us to the next level.

    It would be selfish on your behalf not to.

    10 million to Glasgow Ranger’s , 50 million spent on a casino ……Pardew..” Money’s Tight”….

    I think he realized he talked too much about the Debuchy deal and in fact got a number of thing wrong. I think this time he’ll give us a name (most likely Remy) despite the fact that it’s been all over the news, twitter etc. and give a ballpark figure as to what the fee is. If he’s right, he looks like an ITK even though he’ll have just made some accurate guesses.

    But he wasn’t. Sure he got that Debuchy would sign correct but it was being reported before him that we were interested again or agreeing a fee. He was wrong about when the medical was taking place and wrong about Debuchy being presented to the crowd before the Everton game. Oh, and I seem to remember him saying something about there being two players due to be in the crowd at the Everton game…. guess what, he was wrong about that too.

    The ITK posted a few days ago he had placed a bet for NUFC to sign
    Debuchy
    Remy &
    Sakho
    However, his posts all came after it was common knowledge a fee had been accepted by Lille so the conclusion of that deal was a formality rather than having inside information.
    It is also very common knowledge that Remy is the first choice striker to replace Ba and numerous reports issued that talks have begun between OM and NUFC.
    For me to believe that our Proud really is an ITK with sound info then his dreamboat2 has to be Sakho within next 48 hrs because Remy is a target/name everyone could state as being next into the club.
    Not having a go as Prouds (very short) posts create debate and excitement even though he may not be right in the end. Be bold Proud and say who it is to be able to save face or be ridiculed by the blog hierarchy.

  • 386 wingspan // Jan 4, 2013 at 5:42 PM

    Just seen Dembas first interview with chelsea. He left with my blssings and thanks but why do footballers alays have a dig when they leave?!

    I honestly thought Demba had more class than that, especially after Pards has been sticking up for him so much the last wk. Just leaves a bitter taste in the mouth.

    Why cant he just say Newcastle took a chance on me, im grateful for that and had a great time there but its hard to turn down the European champions.

    I consider myself a good judge of character but i got Demba wrong, maybe all footballers are Dicks as is widely thought.

    No class……..hes no Ron Burghandy

    Does it occur to you given the abuse you’ve given ptbag that he is less likely to share what information he has come across……somehow I think if he has a corporate box occasionally he is more likely to be in the know than you. Of course we’ll never know….so the victory is yours…..well done…..for those who might have been interested in the snippets we’ll just have to imagine what signings could materialize. Quite frankly don’t understand the vehement slagging the fella’s had…..if the news is right gr8 if not take it with a pinch of salt…..and move on!

    So does that mean I’m not allowed to supply other evidence which contradicts your reputation? I’m looking, someone did definitely say that there would be two players in the crowd. I believed it was you however, if I am wrong then I will take it back.
    That still has no bearing on whether I think your lying or not. If you’re so confident, why not just say the name instead of pissing about? Oh wait I know why, its so you can say that’s who I was talking about when whoever the next player to sign is.

    As for the other poster who has just had a pop blog style then suggest you read my post again re Prouds comments as it was not slagging him nor offensive unlike others who have a great dislike towards anyone who passes on information.

  • 427 Toon1978 // Jan 4, 2013 at 6:00 PM

    Screaming out for a striker and a Cb. Fingers crossed we get both in. Debuchy is a cracking signing. HBA and Debuchy down that right hand side is going to be pretty damn good and when Cabaye is back it will be even better.

    We need to sign Remy, Sulejmani, Alderewield and Sissoko and then I’d be convinced that we’d have the 3rd/4th best squad in the country behind Spurs, Chelsea and Man City.

    In fairness to ptbag, Debuchy was in the crowd on Wednesday. If people want to pass on information they’ve been told then let them. It’s gossip only time will tell whether it’s true or not.
    Personally I enjoy the craic, not too fussed whether it’s true. Sometimes it’s quite amusing like the Barnetta saga.

    No, you were saying on the first how he had his medical and had signed. Then you said it on the second, then the third…
    And yes, you have everything to justify since you are the one with the “information”.

  • 435 Spreadthetoon // Jan 4, 2013 at 6:04 PM

    Lets take the assumption that we get:
    Remy £8m
    then I think it is plausible to:
    Isimat-Mirin £6m
    Sissoko £3m

    Get these signings in and we have done good business in this window! Fingers crossed.

    no chance he needs to run through to the end of the season.
    even then, if we got relegated – which I think is hihgly unlikely he’d be a good choice to get us the bounce back so eother way he’ll stay.
    Once he’s got his 2-3 missing purples we’ll do fie and play 4-3-3 most of the time and 4-5-1. That’s my prediction anyway.

    We do also need another playmaker in the summer

  • 441 nick_9 // Jan 4, 2013 at 6:06 PM

    Spread I definitely think it is. Debuchy signing is a sweetener for Ba leaving. Not knocking the man as I’m thankful we have Debuchy but for obvious reasons they withhold stuff from us fans. Shola being held back from ACON was a very telling sign they knew Ba was off. For that very reason If we go til the end of jan without bringing in another striker I will be very annoyed. We play Norwich, villa and reading In January and if we don’t win them then we are in a right mess with only 14 games remaining. Next league game is a week away so it would be nice to get a cb or a st in before then. Knowing our luck Pardew might want them to spectate and learn about our game.z

    WIZARD NEWS

    Breaking news.

    A lot of reports going round today saying we have signed Debuchy.

    He wants to leave, Lille want to cut costs at the club.

    Rumoured to have agreed fee of 6million euros, and agreed terms.

    If its true expect to see him over the metaphorical line once the metaphorical window opens. Too many metaphorical things.

    beattie you are making yourself look pathetic. that was MY OPINION on ba not information

  • 476 nick_9 // Jan 4, 2013 at 6:21 PM

    Anyhow………

    Debuchy and Arfa on the right
    Santon and marveaux on the left?

    I know marveaux is good centrally but it will be hard to accommodate him with Anita, cabaye and tiote challenger for a central position. Nice balance to both sides with a left footed an right footed player on either side, two mercurial wizards and two attacking fullbacks. Nice!

    That is one more piece of the jigsaw complete and much more balanced.

    @mansize
    Proud I will refer to the post by mansize about the blog hierarchy. That was my point to you. Name the player or the frequent posters who are on here 7 days a week 24 seven will forever just type their abuse that you were full of BS.
    Having viewed this site for best part of a year now with very infrequent posts it has been noted that if your not in with the regulars then you are an easy target.
    Getting back to your news I hope it’s Sakho.

  • 482 ochytoon // Jan 4, 2013 at 6:23 PM

    Proud
    Difference is that you stated your opinion as fact. If it was an opinion you would have said: “I don’t think Demba Ba will go to Chelsea”.
    Instead, you presented it as if you were aware of what his agents were doing and what his motives were.

  • 483 Hemel Mag // Jan 4, 2013 at 6:23 PM

    Guys I dont post often- at all! But I do read daily and im callin BS big time on Proud
    NONE of what he has said has acutally come true- apart from Debuchy signing, which as someone has already pointed out, was already happening.
    I cant remember his name but this Proud “ITK” smacks of another infamous ITK that was telling us a couple of summers ago that Gervinho was nailed on to sign for us- it’s really bugging me that icant remember his name., but he had the same crap grammar, the same juvenile responses when challenged and the same crap ITK info-
    I’d put money on it being him again, but what was his bloody name???

  • 484 BelfastMagpie // Jan 4, 2013 at 6:23 PM

    Eliot Tavernier Ferguson Colo Streete Abeid Anita Obertan Marveaux Cisse campbell

    maybe shola will play maybe amalifitano maybe sammy will play and although pardew will want to win the game obviously, i think young remi streete will get his chance.

    Hope Adam campbell gets a chance, he surely deserves one.

    Than I’d be happy.

  • 505 Beattie25 // Jan 4, 2013 at 6:36 PM

    I don’t mind Proud coming on, claiming to be ITK and dropping a few names, but when people get swept up in it and become desperate for the man to give them info and he holds back, it reeks of attention seeking.

    Come on, say a name and interact.

    Don’t come on teasing people and playing fools for fools.

    It doesn’t sit well with me, I don’t like how some people take advantage of those desperate for a scoop.

  • 506 breno95 // Jan 4, 2013 at 6:37 PM

    Toon1978

    Well Sakho was one of the three proud named so as I see a CB as priority then I do hope it is him rather than Remy.

    Note to Proud – now do you get my earlier post re how this blog works. Some think they own it while others go along with the more frequent posters. However, you can type what you like as noone on here knows any more or less than you. The little cliques just think they do. Now sit back and wait for the drivel going to be thrown at me. God help me.

  • 507 beefman13 // Jan 4, 2013 at 6:37 PM

    Santon i think AP is terrified of injuries but i do think he will still play a few seniors, i said many times i like the younger players anyway so i ant bothered if he plays mostly younger players, to be honest im sick of looking at a lot of then seniors.

    Its a shame about the world famous FA cup but it is now much like the old league cup used to be in importance, all beacuse of the money of the premiership, i still love the FA cup.

  • 508 peasngravy // Jan 4, 2013 at 6:37 PM

    N’kolou of marseille is a tidy big player too as far as centre halfs go, don’t know his age but reckon he’s still quite young, kaboure in midfield but if I could take any marseille player I would have valbuena, very much in the mould of hba and marv a tricky little CAM on his day!

  • 512 Williamson is Bramble in disguise // Jan 4, 2013 at 6:38 PM

    If shola starts i will be livid. He was our worst player by a mile the other night, want to see a front three of ranger-campbell-sammy and see how it goes, maybe rotate them around so they all get a go centrally or whatever, who knows, but not shola! would rather see f*****g harper playing up front, would certainly have more chance of scoring!

    if the Harry Maguire link is true then good, he maybe 19 but he’s a good strong defender for Sheff Utd and he is already better than Wilo. Get him signed and we’d have 4 great young cb prospects, Maguire, Good, Streete and Satka.

    Just decorating the blog. =)

  • 559 Ketsbaia9 // Jan 4, 2013 at 7:09 PM

    Haha, imagine all these French players playing with Harry McGuire. We need to sign proven quality. Alderewerield has played against many big teams in the Champions league and is a full Belgium international.

    Interestingly, we have all these players who can play at right back:

    Debuchy
    Raylor
    Perch
    Anita
    Santon
    Gutierrez
    Gosling
    Simpson
    Tavernier
    Saylor

    6 or 7 are naturally right-backs and Gosling, Gutierrez and Saylor are fairly versatile. Out of that list, we need to get rid of Gosling, Simpson and Tavernier immediately.

    Perch will do as back up, as we won’t sign 2 centre backs. Hopefully, Willo will soon be fifth choice.

    Raylor has been a big miss this season.

    We only have Santon and Anita who can play at left-back. Raylor is more of a right-sided player, and had to play at left back because we didn’t have an other options.

    Ferguson is a winger.

    Priority in the summer would be to sign a left-back etc.

  • 560 fog on the tyne // Jan 4, 2013 at 7:10 PM

    Beatie

    Completley agree with ur opinion of ptbag as on monday i commented that a black player had been spotted at sjp. Proud jumped on me along with someone else with arrogance and bullshit. The player turned out to be james tavernier who was making a appearance at a private function. At the time iheld my hands up and admitted it was my bad. My point is i recieved this info, and thought it was good to share it, some simply disregarded it as bull. Thats not my style, i’m not and dont claim to be a itk, just believe we are all nufc fanatics whom would all like to hear all newsnufc.
    Some of the itk’s do actually pass on accurate info, but the arrogance, ignorance and bullish tactics are a massive turn off for me.

    If we do sign Remy I will probably be the happiest toon supporter in the world.. I’ve been begging for his signature for years now and I say it in every single transfer window ha.. would love it to become true but I’ll not hold my breathe until I see him being presented to the media with the toon top

  • 562 2_goal_tino // Jan 4, 2013 at 7:11 PM

    @geordielad – wouldn’t be surprised about that. We were linked with him for past 2 transfer windows. My uncles a Sheffield United season ticket holder and says that he’s a class above everyone in that league and probably also in the Championship and destined to be a big player. Not sure if he’s the guy we need now though.

  • 571 two steps forward one step back // Jan 4, 2013 at 7:17 PM

    Remy is just the kind of deal Batman and Robin love to pull off (apart from each other).
    If Remy was seriously valued at €20m and is now €12m simply because of this season, then he is a real bargain. Okay so contract ending helps… but check out the stats.
    All OM
    2010-11 played 41 scored 17
    2011-12 played 42 scored 20

    Shiremagpies – Honestly don’t know mate just passing on this from him for those who dont have twitt.. but hopefully something positive comes of it.. £8million cash upfront it probably the right price for someone who isnt really involved with the team much these days

  • 578 Beattie25 // Jan 4, 2013 at 7:23 PM

    Fog on the tyne

    That’s my issue with him. If he merely spoke of his own beliefs then I could stomach him but he was attacking everyone who either disagreed or had other knowledge.

    He was/is a goon but because he posted about Debuchy 15 hours after even I saw it online some think he was accurate.

    I hope he either never comes back or comes back and keeps it simple and stops attempting to abuse people with his stinking attitude.

  • 579 Shiremagpies // Jan 4, 2013 at 7:23 PM

    if this is true then for me its defo not remy, categorically not, thanks for the message though never the less. what do people think we will achieve in this window????

  • 580 two steps forward one step back // Jan 4, 2013 at 7:24 PM

    Remember guys £8m is €10.2m given the exchange rate.
    If we are signing players at £8m they’re gonna be a serious upgrade for a lot of positions.

  • 586 Beattie25 // Jan 4, 2013 at 7:27 PM

    £8 million pound certainly narrows it down.

    Nobody in the Dutch league who we have been linked with is worth £8 million (other then Alderwierled).

    In France it could be Sakho and Remy.

    In England it could be any English player under 21.

    Interesting.

  • 587 davybtoon // Jan 4, 2013 at 7:27 PM

    Maybe jermaine lens from psv similar to remy in style both great players but yea alderweild would b I hope it was if it was true

  • 588 mikeashleyisamackem // Jan 4, 2013 at 7:27 PM

    i think newcastle should go and invest a decent ammount of money for once and buy these players for 35 million the carroll money that we supposed to have spent this is my shortlist obv cant sign them all
    wilfried zaha
    jermaine defoe
    micah richards
    lescott
    tom huddlestone
    andy carrol
    james mclean
    micheal carrick
    danny guthrie
    douglas
    haaland from fulham if thats his name
    stirling why not flfc
    remy
    sebastian larrson lmao
    any way am sure you will all have a few more names you would add and a few ya would take out but i personally think we should buy a core of british players into the newcastle squad which is something we are lacking for when we need a bit of grit and determination what do you think

    One problem if we sign Remy, Where can we fit Marveaux and Anita into the team? I’d personally keep Anita as rotation and have a forward 4 of:
    —————–Krul
    Debuchy-?????-Coloccini-Santon
    ———Cabaye-Tiote/Anita
    Ben Arfa—-Marveaux—-Remy

    I never said that, that was someone else.

    If you want people to respect your opinions or inside info then you have to respect others views that it might be false.

    I don’t want to seem like I’m on a high horse here as my reputation on this blog is as low on anyone’s but earlier you were stringing people along when they looked to you for a name, and earlier in the week anyone who opposed you was mocked, insulted and put down because of who you know at SJP.

    At the end of the day I don’t need to get involved with your posts and vice versa but some people on this blog look to people like you to get excited or be positive for the future, that will happen whether I believe it should or not. Holding back info and playing with people IMO is immoral and should stop.

    If you want to be ITK then be ITK but don’t string people along who may be less intelligent than yourself, it is not right.

  • 667 Newcastle for alltid // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:16 PM

    I don’t really mind Ba leaving that much. Of course, he’s been brilliant for us, and him leaving in the middle of this struggle of ours is unfortunate. But he always stroke me as more of a mercenary who follows money and glory, opposed to getting very emotionally attached to a club. This is the case for a lot of footballers, as it’s their job. Footballers actually joining their favourite team and wanting by all means to stay is a rare thing these days.

    I don’t know about you guys, but I’m getting more and more used to this merry-go-round of players in and out of this club. It seems our transfer policy are favoured in front of continuity and improvement. But that’s just the way it is, and our support is important right now. We proved with Carroll leaving that we can bounce back with other strikers (Ba, Cissè, to a degree Leon Best for a short period), and I can’t see why we shouldn’t this time around. With the goal-scoring abilities of Cissè, coupled with a new striker/winger and the purchase of a new CB (which should be done a long time ago given Saylors injuries), we should be fine. A front three with Ben Arfa, Cissè and Remy (as an example) sounds lethal enough to me, and in fact better for the club that Ba’s apparent ego.

    At least, now is the time to improve and strengthen the squad. We’ve been unlucky with injuries that have really exposed our weaknesses in depth. So things can still turn around, even though we’re in a really boring league position.

  • 675 King Arfa // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:24 PM

    God id love it to be Remy for 8 mil what a steal he would be i am worried however that marvaux wont get a game in the event ov Remy roking up at SJP hes shown that he has come on leaps and bounds since his arrival and would be a shame to have him sat on the bench thereafter

    Anyway life goes on and beattie nice to see u and proud have made up bet that hurt ha!

    Ptbag I’ve read your posts and I haven’t a clue probably because I do not follow foreign leagues and do not play football manager games.
    For the ignorant i.e. me could you spell it out please?
    We can then have a debate on the player and whether he is any good, what we need and whether it is likely to happen. This would be better than the blog tennis that is happening now.

  • 685 geordie157 // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:35 PM

  • 688 Mister Tuff // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:37 PM

    proud -fair point. Whilst the player has been discussed even today -sometimes in the heat of the moment people overlook what in fact has been said
    If I had been the originator of the information I would remind them but as I am not I would be uneasy at “echoing” what someone else gleaned from their sources as I would not have the confidence that the information source was credible/trustworthy. Only you can do that.
    Also you would have the “power” not to compromise your source.
    Go on remind them of the name -please.

  • 689 two steps forward one step back // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:40 PM

    I would be pleased if we got Remy at £8m and even more pleased if we got him for €8m.

    Then we’d have a decent sized pot left for a quality CB.

    I’d not be unhappy if we get £1.5m for Simmo either as long as we put that back in the CB transfer kitty.

  • 690 Shiremagpies // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:41 PM

    @ PTBAG 683 – really but that takes us to sunday?? wont ashley be feasting on an ox and llambias doing his washing up, surely theyll be too busy to be wrapping up deals?? but you clearly know best so if you say that then so be it, personally i think 48 working day hours so id say tuesday!!!!!!

  • 691 Beattie25 // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:43 PM

    If we get Remy for anything less than £10 million it’ll be amazing.

    Remember Spurs had a bid of approx. £17 million turned down only a year ago.

  • 692 GeordieAnt // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:43 PM

    Oh god. This pains me to say after years of reading this blog, but I have to side with Beattie. Proud, you are nowhere near ITK. Every single one of your posts, replies and insults are ridiculous. Lets look at the Debuchy deal, you claimed that he had passed his medical, and was to be unveiled before the Everton game, however…he passed his medical today, was sat in the crowd but not unveiled at Everton, and then afterwards you disappeared, probably knowing people were gonna call you a BSer. Next point, your apparent “friendship” or “mutual respect” with the board is obviously a load of crap. You sponsored Santon at the Swans game eh? You want people to believe their is a level of truth in this then feel free to post a link to any pictures taken with Santon during the “30 minute meeting in your box.” Then we might believe their is an element of truth in some of the things you say, no doubt you’ll come up with a witless, poorly spelled comeback in which you tell me to die or something else pathetic like that. Fact is mate, you’ve been outed as a BSer, unfortunately there seems to be a number of posters on here that actually believe you, and you’re taking full advantage of that. Well you know what…luckily there are some people who aren’t sucked in as easily as others, and we will be the ones that eventually prove that you are nothing but BS. Also…one last thing, funny that you posted the 8 million for a French player hint an hour or so after it actually appeared online, anyone that has been keeping tabs on the latest info on Newcastle transfers would know that, so it has nothing whatsoever to do with you “hanging out with board members” whatsoever. However if we’re making claims to be ITK, I guess I can pretend too.

    Guys during a 17 minute phone conversation with Mike Ashley that I just had, he informed me of all our transfer targets, who fees have all been agreed for, and are on their way for a medical as we speak. These are as follows:

    C.Ronaldo: Knock down price due to our fantastic negotiating skills of 2.3 million. Mike was trying for 1.5 but eventually gave in.
    V.Kompany: Again due to our amazing negotiating skills we’ve managed to get him for a price of 500k, however Mike feels he is one for the future even giving his age
    A.Carroll: Liverpool have decided that we can have him for the rest of the season, and they will continue to pay his full wages, also we have a chance to sign him for 1.2 million after his loan spell
    D.Villa: £12 and 2 packets of polos, 1 fruit flavoured, the other spearmint. I hear originally they were asking for 4 packets of polos and £15…however Ashley offered them a couple of replica shirts from SD to sweeten the offer
    Pele: Mike feels that even given his age, his transfer policy of 25 and under can be overlooked due to wanting some more experience, apparently even though he’s 72 now he can still knock a ball around like he could all those years ago.

    Apparently we’re going after Zola for the same reasons as Pele, are putting in a second bid for Messi of around 5.3 million, and are after Iniesta for around 3 million. Mike is confident of getting these 3 also, however due to his dinner being ready (which was apparently being cooked by all of the above, with whoever made the best meal being paid the best wages of no more than £15,000 a week). ITK GUYS IN-THE-FUCKING-KNOW

  • 696 Spreadthetoon // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:46 PM

    Beattie
    Remy is not in form and is surplus to OM req’ments, I’d say £8m is more than a fair price. That leaves us with another £7m in the kitty……could we get 2 cb’s with that money….sell Simmo for £3m and we’ve got £10m for two CBs.

  • 697 Sir Braveheart // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:47 PM

    48 hours eh? So accounting for delays, Monday afternoon is a reasonable estimate? If it proves to be true I will post

    “Proudtobeageordie is a legend. He is my hero”

    on every topic Ed creates for a week. Dont get me wrong, I really hope you’re right. Im just dubious. I am however willing to be proven wrong and will give credit where credit is due.

  • 698 two steps forward one step back // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:47 PM

    Aye Beattie it was €20m, but all the numbers being chucked about now are about the £8.8m mark. Maybe the injury and performances have had an impact. Does seem on the low side though. £10m would be a reasonable bargain imho

  • 699 Graeme // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:48 PM

  • 701 Mister Tuff // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:48 PM

    proud -was doing my reply and did not see you had revealed the name. Spot on mate. Over the last couple of days I done a couple of posts about him – super speed – ball over the top -9 times out of 10 he will get the ball, does not get out muscled, beats 6′ 4″ defenders in the air. Only downside is he is trying to regain his form before he was injured. Before injury he was valued at 20 million so I suppose his decline in fortunes lowered the price. But if he regaines his form -my god defences look out. He played with Benny at Lyon for 2 years. His heart defect is not supposed to be a problem now. A mouthwatering prospect. Thanks for not keeping the boys hanging on.

  • 702 davybtoon // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:49 PM

    Remy medical could take a while bcoz of his heart defect

  • 703 proudtobageordie // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:50 PM

    personally i think the medical will take longer than 48hrs due to his heart problem,but hey i ain’t a heart specialist so what do i know?

  • 704 davybtoon // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:51 PM

  • 705 mattyNUFC // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:51 PM

    ok, so, couldn’t be bothered to read 500 comments

    did Proud actually say the name of ‘dreamboat 2′?

    and also, proud, if you are still on here, you were baiting others to go find your quote where you said debuchy would be at the game plus another. you did say that as i too remember it explicitly a few days back

  • 706 sahil // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:51 PM

    Proud’s not legit.

    1. He said Debuchy would be unveiled before the match on Wednesday.
    2. He said ‘Demba ba WILL NOT GO TO CHELSEA’
    3. He said Demba ba wants to only go to PSG.
    4. He says about this £8m signing and that guy on twitter has the same info as him. I checked that guys’ account and he is a SUNDERLAND supporter who follows more people than he has followers.. Reliable?

  • 707 two steps forward one step back // Jan 4, 2013 at 8:52 PM

    Spread

    See 569 for OM stats.
    What’s the line.. form is temporary, class is permanent ?
    €12m is just under £10m

Can’t wait for the 2nd half of this season and Ben Arfa being fit and linking up with Debuchy and Cabaye, Cisse will smash us up the league and I just hope we sign a CB and a ST like Remy…

    - I didn’t ask you to tell me if you had a picture or not, I asked for proof. FACT
    - You didn’t claim that Llambias gave you little bits of knowledge because he was so greatful about all the money you put into the club. I believe you did. FACT
    - You talk complete BS and are on the total defensive because you’ve been found out. FACT
    - If you were legit, and fully knew you were actually ITK, you wouldn’t bite at everyone saying you’re a BSer, you’d simply say “Well wait and see.” FACT

  • 752 Toon1978 // Jan 4, 2013 at 9:49 PM

    Cut Proud some slack. If you are offended or annoyed with his comments then ignore the lad. No need for all this abuse. If he is bullsh1tting then he is BS. He will only make himself like a fool in the end IF Remy does not come to pass but even if he is itk then we can’t expect him to be 100% correct. Things change all the time. Proud might be told something, he passes it on then things change. Take his comments with a pinch of salt and if they turn out true then good for Proud. If not then ignore his comments in the future and move on.

  • 777 Mister Tuff // Jan 4, 2013 at 10:08 PM

    posted this a couple of days ago -extract from a player profile site. just to make your mouth water:-

    Loic Remy: the true meaning of a speed demon, the pace this man has can destroy a back four within seconds! One through ball over the top of the defense and 9 times out of 10 if the ball is good Remy will get it. He isn’t weak as well; usually you see lots of quick players get barged off the ball but not Remy. His pace would certainly match the EPL
    The most fascinating attribute with Remy is his heading. You rarely get a pacey forward that can header a ball so well, the jump that Remy can get is truly magnificent. A lot of his goals have actually come from headers. It really makes you wonder how a player can out jump a 6 foot 4 defender with a muscle build close to the Incredible Hulk (Exaggeration). Dont get me wrong hes not tiny, but his stature doesn’t make you think he can out jump some of the defenders in Ligue 1.

  • 784 Sazzer // Jan 4, 2013 at 10:17 PM

    If you don’t want to read about Remy I posted some videos with him earlier in this thread. They weren’t as good as the PEA ones but you can see his speed and heading capability.

    Both have the speed, and provide goals and assists. Remy is the better header. Aubameyang have similar orientation skills as Chicarito and is younger.

    two steps @776 -if he can regain his form – just what we have needed for some time – a player that can burst through the opposition defence -get them on the back foot and with his electric speed they wont be so blase about pushing up. If this works out -great.

    Newcastle are not a big club, fair sentiment by Ba, even an understandable comment by Fergie. We have been mismanaged throughout our history and underachieved pathetically. An awful waste of great natural resources and potential and this regime appears to be following suit. The tragic flip side of being born black and white.

    My opinion is that anyone using bad language on this site need to realise that there is impressionable children on here also, so spare a thought! as I wouldn’t want my son reading some of these comments.

    Seriously, Pards knows we need a Ba replacement and he also knows we are well overdue a quality CB and I reckon he’s milking this situation to get these three through the door. Only way to prise open Batman’s wallet. As Remy has been on the radar for months then we’re all ITK already.
    More to the point nobody is ITK about the stunning speedy fantastic header of the ball who we are currently negotiating for as CB.

He will look to sell another one before bringing anyone in or a loan move for someone at present not getting a game. Sorry no Centre Back again – More Willo woe!

    Colin Young seem to be covering Newcastle and Sunderland. I can’t see him releasing a lot of rumours. So seems legit.

  • 833 mondziu // Jan 4, 2013 at 11:27 PM

    I have not contributed here for quite a while, but I still follow the blog very closely. By the way – great job and great consistency Ed!

    On the Demba Ba departure, my opinion is that he is by all means allowed to go during any transfer window by the clause in his contract and we cannot be agrieved with his decision. Even though we didn’t recieve an awul lot of money, it was still a very good deal for Newcastle as well!

    Now, we have to move on. Although we are, where we are in terms of league position at the moment, we still are in much stronger position to bring in a replacement, be it Remy or any other player.

    However, considering the emergence of Marveaux, better performances from Obertan, I feel we would do better if we brought in a defender before buying another striker.

    Cisse is a tremendous player and he will score goals if he is given chances, our wings are not as bad as some think, but we simply leak in too many goals. Even captain Colo underperformes in my view. We need more competition there, as we cannot be sure of Saylor’s fitness and Willo’s (and sometimes Colo’s) consistency. The arrival of Debuchy will also help a lot.

    We have to be really careful with our expetations, but I really think if we can get a top CB and stay up it will be fine. I was hoping for more, obviously, but if a platform is built for another challenge for European competitions next season, I can’t ask for much more. We’re neither Chelsea, nor Man City and it’s necesserily a bad thing.

  • 836 mattyNUFC // Jan 4, 2013 at 11:36 PM

    as for the CB position, there are really only three options in my mind:

    Alderweild
    Yanga Mbiwa
    Haangeland

    those are the only possibly availble CBs who 1)we could afford and 2) who would be good enough.

    Should’ve gotten Haangeland when he was available ages ago. 2mil and Ashley scoffed.

  • 837 Sazzer // Jan 4, 2013 at 11:38 PM

    We will regroup with stronger flanks and a better defence in February.

    The development squad will be pruned again.

  • 851 nick_9 // Jan 4, 2013 at 11:55 PM

    One week before we play in the league next. Surely enough time for another signing? We need these guys in as soon as possible because the three games we have in January are very winnable and three wins would transform our season and give us a real shot at finishing tenth or above. If we are left to wait another two weeks or so to sign a replacement for Ba of a much needed cb then everyone is going to get very frustrated. We need players for those positions urgently and it’s all everyone is talking about. Pardew said;

    “its not just a striker that’s needed, but that’s going to depend a lot on how much the striker costs us. That’s something I think we’ll come to later in the window. The return to fitness of Steven Taylor and getting Debuchy has helped us massively in defence, but I still think perhaps another one is what we need.”

    It’s nice than Alan has identified we need another defender but a bit worry he says it depends on how much the striker costs.

  • 855 Transfer Sage // Jan 5, 2013 at 12:08 AM

    Remy is flying in Monday for medical after personal terms agreed.

    Heard it from my friend in the club, medical staff are to report for a medical so expected to be remy as only deal close to completion

  • 856 GeordieToon89 // Jan 5, 2013 at 12:10 AM

    Sazzer – the young Feyenoors centre half? He can play left back aswell he’s a beast also, only 19 or 20 looks a great talent made his league debut when he was 16 a think it was

  • 860 ToonDownSouth // Jan 5, 2013 at 12:16 AM

    Watch out TS, there’s some angry folk on here tonight.

    If true, that’s fantastic. I know people worry about his lack of form, but just signing a player of his repute would be a great show of ambition to our players.

    After all, I have a feeling a few promises to the likes of Cabaye and Coloccini may not have been kept so far, with regards to investment.

  • 863 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 12:19 AM

    Tsage
    Just to make things clear. You assume Remy will be flying over on monday because your friend that know the medical schedule are said to work on Monday. So could be someone else but most likely it’s Remy because we have not heard of anybody else.

    You had the wrong person last time, but were right on the announcement part.

  • 864 nick_9 // Jan 5, 2013 at 12:21 AM

    TDS agree with that, I also wonder exactly how we sold the club to the likes of Anita and Debuchy who both come from champions league clubs.

    If we for remy and a decent cb I think half a season together could give them enough time to gel. If we then signed some good back up players and a good winger in the summer I honestly believe the team would have enough quality and strength to mount a serious push for 4th place. Aside from Chelsea, man city and Man U the rest are not streets ahead but are largely consistent

  • 865 mattyNUFC // Jan 5, 2013 at 12:23 AM

    quit with your ‘ba’s a mercenary, remy’s a mercenary if he goes to QPR’ sh**. If you were playing in Germany for Hoffenheim and Bayern came along offering to double your wages, would you stay? if you say you would you’re a downright liar

  • 867 GeordieToon89 // Jan 5, 2013 at 12:25 AM

    The news posted by proud was a deal has been done for loic Remy for 8 million and he is in the bag pending medical. Sage has also posted an update that the medical taking place on Monday.
    I hope for the sanity of the blog that these claims are correct and moves are afoot for a CB to be signed before next EPL game.
    That’s the crack in a nutshell but IRS been a very turbulent night on here with alot if angry bloggers all jostling for the title of king of the blog.

    matty

    There’s not too much ‘loyalty’ remaining, but some players do value things other than money and immediate success.

    After all, Cabaye turned down interest from Tottenham – and Santon from Roma – in the summer because they believed in our project.

    I assume they regret that now, of course – I pray (and wait for heartache) that Ashley will do something this window to show them otherwise.

  • 873 davybtoon // Jan 5, 2013 at 12:32 AM

    Independent have no quotes or anything they are just guessing that qpr will pay more, seriously though qpr or Newcastle it’s a pretty easy choice 18,000 or 52,000 cheering you on similar wages qpr arnt gonna smash us in wages

    Apparently QPR are closer to signing Remy than we are. On account that they have a better wage structure and could easily out bid us.

  • 886 mondziu // Jan 5, 2013 at 12:58 AM

    I’ll believe we’d sign someone when I see the guy with our shirt in front of our training ground.

    If it’s true, it’s great news, but we needed to wait for transfers before, bar Cisse, and I don’t expect this transfer window to be any different.

    Still hope to be wrong!

    really hope i’m wrong, but we all thought anita just meant a more formidable interpretation of the 433 that served us so well on the back end of last season….lo and behold we played for a whole 30 minutes with cabaye tiote and anita all central…….in the EL v Bordeaux no less

    I’m reading the interview with Remy that Sazzer sent us link to and I learnt that he played with Ben Arfa for Lyon.

    Didn’t know that! Do you figure it could help us bring him here?

  • 901 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 1:16 AM

    He know Cabaye and Debuchy from National team. Maybe Obertan and Marveux from youth teams. And Amalfitanos brother.

    The game thread can be long. For example: the thread against Arsenal almost ended on 666. Then some people came in and ruined. But this beats that.

  • 908 nick_9 // Jan 5, 2013 at 1:28 AM

    Tony i suspect we are a much more appealing club than qpr despite the wages. Realistically I’m not sure of they would be prepared to offer him a lot of wages when old sloppy chops has said they need to reduce the wage bill and they have since signed Ben Haim.

    We have 50,000 fans as opposed to their twenty, were in Europe and they’re bottom of the league and most likely getting relegated. We also have Debuchy, Ben Arfa, cabaye, obertan, marveaux, amalfitano, abeid and also cisse who speaks French. If that isn’t enough appeal I don’t know what is, if we sign remy then surely didier deschamps can not ignore us and hba.

    If its a direct choice between us and qpr I would like to think he would choose us even if they offered 15k more, I could be wrong though in this day and age

    Sazzer that doesn’t look good. Five of those are definite starters. I think this is the most injury hit we have been all season, luckily four or five return shortly

  • 914 ToonDownSouth // Jan 5, 2013 at 1:39 AM

    matty

    We’ve been playing 4-3-3 for a fair while now mate – and it wouldn’t surprise me if that was down to fan pressure. Pardew said that Carver always tells him exactly what the fans want and are thinking.

    The one thing that we know will happen is Jonas will be back in the team though – although Pardew said that he takes responsibility for Jonas’ poor form, due to the role he’d been asking Jonas to do. I just hope it’s not at Marveaux’s expense, as the lad has been a star.

    All I’ve wanted for many years now is to have a team and formation that doesn’t pick itself. I just wish we could have a situation where we have options. Currently, there’s a starting 11 and if Pardew doesn’t choose exactly that, he’s a moron. It’s pathetic, every other club in the league, barring Villa who are basically an academy side now, mix it up every week.

    If – in a 4-3-3 – we could just get Cabaye, Tiote, Anita, Perch and Marv fit at the same time, then we’d have, for the first time in about 5 years, debate over CM selection. (I mention Perch because this season he’s outperformed Tiote).

  • 918 nick_9 // Jan 5, 2013 at 1:43 AM

  • 919 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 1:43 AM

    Nick – I would think so as well.

  • 920 mattyNUFC // Jan 5, 2013 at 1:47 AM

    to interject, Mutiny

    would honestly not let Bigi take over Tiote’s spot. I’ve seen him far far FAR too many times get out muscled, out hurried and dispossessed in very bad areas for my liking. Man U he did a commendable job but nothing of not and nothing to consider him as being anywhere near ready for the first team

    (not saying you, Mutiny) I think a lot of people think because he scored a cracking goal (credit, it was) he’s ready. I think he’s still got a few good years before he’s ready to be in our first team

  • 921 geordielad880 // Jan 5, 2013 at 1:47 AM

    remy deal wont happen, fee and wages too high, we will sign someone for around 5-6m or on loan, and sign a cb for 3-4m

  • 922 mattyNUFC // Jan 5, 2013 at 1:50 AM

    and as i’ve mentioned before, he’s done quite well in the EL, bigi.

    but these are against teams that have offered a lot more space and time for him.

  • 923 mattyNUFC // Jan 5, 2013 at 1:51 AM

    Fair enough comment. Guess whilst Tiote is ACON, midfield from Anita Perch Cabaye Marveaux Bigi will be able to not just cope but do well.

  • 925 I-Love-Ameobi // Jan 5, 2013 at 1:53 AM

    All this talk of Remy is sickening to be fair. Why are we buying another striker when we 2 quality strikers in Cisse and Shola Ameobi and 3 quality youngsters in Sammy, Campbell and the gangster Ranger(has lots of potential if he knuckes down).

  • 926 terencelim // Jan 5, 2013 at 1:53 AM

    Congrats Ba for playing under owner with ambition.

  • 927 ToonDownSouth // Jan 5, 2013 at 1:55 AM

    matty

    Haha, yeah sorry, that didn’t read how I intended it (;

    My main gripe with Pardew is that it appears he genuinely believes we look more threatening when we switch to 442 and stick Shola up front.

    Against Everton, I can honestly say I believe we would have stood a much much better chance if we’d kept plugging away in the 433, maybe taking off Shola and bringing on another wide forward.

    The insane thing is that we’ve NEVER had any success with the long ball approach either. Sure, every now and again Ba gets onto the end of a goal kick and scores a wonder goal, but that’s about twice a season.

    It’s given our team a complete identity crisis. We sign technically skilled midgets and play like we’ve still got AC, Nolan & Barton. I wish we had a defined style and purpose to our play, as Rodgers has shown at Liverpool that if you can convince the players that if they stick to the system it’d breed results, then eventually it does.

    matty

    Me too actually – although it was more of a nightmare, since it was immediately after I promised someone on here I’d send them £10 if Pardew was sacked :|

    Personally I wouldn’t mind 442 if done right. Redknapp made it work and made it excited and attractive at Tottenham. But with two flying wingers, and the a strike force chosen because they worked well together.

    But in the last two years I can name no more than two players we’ve signed that fit in that system, and that’s Ba & Gabby. It does seem pretty clear that Pardew just gets what he’s given on the transfer front.

    Brighton will be a tough game, hearing that a few key players wont be playing makes me wanna put 100 on Brighton. Not too bothered if we’re out of the cup tomorrow, wouldn’t mind doing well in Europa though.

    Think if we play a second string side, we might do over Metal Car keys from Ukraine, but not the Russian team with Eto’o in the round of 32, they may wipe the floor with us

    Remember watching them beat Liverpool.
    But here’s hoping for some awesome quarters and semi European nights in March/April :)

  • 943 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 2:17 AM

    You forgot Anita as well.

  • 944 obatoyou // Jan 5, 2013 at 2:19 AM

    What positions do Tiote and Cabaye take in a 4-3-3

    Who’s in the centre? Tiote and Cabaye on the right or summat

  • 945 obatoyou // Jan 5, 2013 at 2:22 AM

    While we’re talkin, see the picture at the top of the webpage with all the faces of the newcastle squad, whos that 5th from the left, looks like Enrique but he’s long gone

  • 946 mondziu // Jan 5, 2013 at 2:25 AM

    Tony, couIt’s Amalfitano mate, but I’m not surprised you don’t recognize him. What happened with him, anyone in the know?

  • 947 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 2:26 AM

    It will be hard to get passed them in EL. Debuchy and Remy will not be available. Ba is gone.

    But with an in form Cabaye, Cisse, Benny, Anita and Marveux etc. We could still beat them.

  • 948 Kc-Toon // Jan 5, 2013 at 2:26 AM

    I would say tiote playing infront of the back four collecting the ball and keeping it simple, none of this long ball stuff hes been doing in the last couple of weeks. Anita and cabaye playing just ahead of tiote, creating attacks and working up the pitch together

  • 949 2_goal_tino // Jan 5, 2013 at 2:31 AM

    @Obatoyou – It’s Amalfitano. I said in preseason that he looked like Enrique but was shot down.

    If we ever do use a 4-3-3 type formation. I think it’s much more likely to be a 4-2-3-1 type thing which can shift to 4-3-3.

    In this case Pardew said yesterday that Cabaye will play in the middle of a front three in the no. 10 role with Cisse alone upfront.

    Using current squad something like this
    —-Tiote-Anita
    HBA – Cabs – Marv
    ——Cisse

    If a striker who plays outwide is signed then I imagine it’ll be very similar but with HBA and the other wide player pushed slightly higher up and Cabs slightly back. Either way cabaye is supposed to be the furthest forward of the central midfielders linking the play up.

  • 950 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 2:32 AM

    obatoyou
    I would prefer Cabaye, Anita and Marveux in 4-3-3. With Tiote at ACON that might happen.

  • 951 mondziu // Jan 5, 2013 at 2:32 AM

    @Kc-Toon:

    Hope to see that and sooner rather than later as well.

  • 952 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 2:35 AM

    2_goal_tino
    Pardew will most likely play Jonas and Benny as wingers if they are fit.

  • 953 obatoyou // Jan 5, 2013 at 2:46 AM

    2 goal tino

    Thanks

    Who’s 3rd from the end? Looks like Vidic, but must be Rob Elliot or someone I haven’t accounted for

  • 954 nick_9 // Jan 5, 2013 at 2:48 AM

    Two goal tino – those are the exact players who should be in our starting eleven based on current performances. Jonas should not be in there and I would even argue obertan is now ahead of him due to this two assists in so little time.

    Those players could easily play in a 4:2:3:1, 4:5:1, 4:3:3 or even a 4:1:4:1. If remy came he could force his way in there and obertan, perch and bigi could easily replace an injured player and still have a good formation. Now imagine Debuchy and santon as wing backs and a new signing partnering colo at the back. Any formation with cisse as the line striker will have to have support from cabaye and co in the box. I am just looking forward to possibly seeing marveaux and Ben Arfa terrorising defenses together, Anita and cabaye being technical and supporting and Debuchy and santon causing havoc on either side.

  • 955 obatoyou // Jan 5, 2013 at 2:55 AM

    Dude, we were supposed to keep the conversation going until we got to 1000 ( while Ed’s still asleep)!!

  • 956 obatoyou // Jan 5, 2013 at 2:58 AM

    Nick_9 Shouldn’t Remy fit in there somewhere?
    But otherwise agreed, Marveaux and Anita, Cabs Tiote, HBA and Cisse, with no Gutierrez, but how easy will it be for Pards to fade Gutierrez out?

  • 957 nick_9 // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:02 AM

    –Debuchy—- new cb——colo—–santon–
    —————–tiote———-Anita—————–
    ——Hba————Cabaye———-marveaux
    ————————-Cisse————————

    Subs:
    Elliot
    Taylor
    Simmo
    Obertan
    Perch
    New st/shola

    Easily switches to a 4:3:3, 4:4:2 or 4:5:1, like it. Obertan can come on as an impact sub as could the st. Defensive cover there if needed and cover in midfield, Anita could play further forward if perch or bigi come on.

  • 958 nick_9 // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:05 AM

    Oba to you – if remy comes he probably will end up playing on the left for us which is fine but as things stand I think those are the players we should play when fit. I think a cb and st are of equal importance because imagine if cisse and colo got injured, our weak areas are glaringly obvious. I think it would be harsh to drop Anita and marveaux on current form yet you have to have tiote, cabaye and hba in there so that formation could be the way around it until different personnel come in and ask questions.

  • 959 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:10 AM

    It’s S. Taylor.

  • 960 2_goal_tino // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:13 AM

    If Remy or someone like that came in. Based on current performances i’d have to go for:

    –Cabaye-Anita
    HBA-Marv-Remy
    —–Cisse

    Without Tiote for over a month there wouldn’t be much selection dilemma, but for me Marv and Anita have been the few shining lights of the past month and have to keep their places.

    Jonas is lucky because he’s quite adaptable and we will never have a fully fit squad. So he’ll still rack up the appearances. His days on the wing have got to be over though. He should primarily be thought of as a back up CDM.

  • 961 2_goal_tino // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:22 AM

    The importance of Marveaux is multiplied by the absence of HBA and Cabaye without whom we have very little combination. I see him as a cross between the two actually. He can run very well with the ball like Benny but can pick out passes like Cabaye. Needs a bit more consistency but I would be ecstatic to see a team with the three of them in together. For me, Jonas’ injury may well be the highlights of the season so far because it has given Marveaux the long awaited chance to prove to Pardew that he deserves a place.

    The most worrying thing for me though is that quote a few weeks back where Pardew acknowledged that Jonas had been poor all season, but said that he was vice-captain and that he knew he could do better and as such it was his responsibility to have faith in him and that he wouldn’t be dropped.

  • 962 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:25 AM

    We will probably rotate as well. But I Prefer 2Tos at moment though.

  • 963 obatoyou // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:30 AM

    Of course that’s S.Taylor, who’s the guy two to the left of Pardew then?

  • 964 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:30 AM

    Yeah, it’s sounds worrying. You are right on the injury. For starters it might happen in end of games when Pardew gets desperate.

  • 965 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:34 AM

    Vuckic

  • 966 obatoyou // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:34 AM

    Hm so remy on the left hba on the right and Cisse in the middle, sounds good to me, we got a lot of quality in midfield when they’re fit. Could Hatem play up front if one of them gets injured?

  • 967 obatoyou // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:37 AM

    Of course, thanks I recOgnise both of them now, so dan gosling and Ryan Taylor are not in the pic? Maybe they’ll get a spot when they take ba out. :)

  • 968 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:37 AM

    Remy more used to RW. So Benny might go left.

  • 969 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:40 AM

    Remy, Shola. If Cisse out.

  • 970 obatoyou // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:41 AM

    You guys must get a lot out of the game, I can never guess who you’ll pick as best player even when I watch the whole game. I’m weary and weak in me old age tho, but 90 mins is a long time to follow which players playing well and things, it’s easy to see who assisted the goals, but goals are only a couple of seconds per game

  • 971 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:45 AM

    No Gosling and no R.T.

  • 972 cisse_the_legend // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:45 AM

    Whats the situation with Remy and CB guys?

  • 973 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:49 AM

    Remy rumoured in. Cb unclear.

  • 974 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 3:57 AM

    This game is enjoyable on many different levels. So people see different things depending on their knowledge and taste. Like so many other things in life.

  • 975 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 4:00 AM

    The enjoyment isn’t necessarily better, its just different.

  • 976 Expat MAG // Jan 5, 2013 at 4:06 AM

    I haven’t posted in a while as the results over the past two months have been so depressing. Maybe these results have come at the right time as Ashley needs to spend on a classy FB, CB and CF.

    Dubuchy is now one of us and hopefully we’ll soon have Remy in the ranks.

    However, the additional CB is priority for me as the defense has been so bad this season. STaylor should be back this month also and hoping he can go the rest of the season without further injury! Time will tell…..

  • 977 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 4:13 AM

  • 989 gonufc (up and Hatem) // Jan 5, 2013 at 4:36 AM

    After thinking for a bit, I’m really excited.

    We’ve just signed France’s first choice right back. Possibly their best player in the euros. Who also looked like one of the best right backs in the competition and whom most people thought might be going to Real Madrid at the time.

    and….

    No more Danny ‘bigger contract for my exceptional mediocrity please’ Simpson.

    Now, all we need to do is get someone to play on the left wing and someone to REPLACE WILLIAMSON.
    Then that’ll be a seriously good team when everyone’s fit.

  • 990 gonufc (up and Hatem) // Jan 5, 2013 at 4:41 AM

    @Sazzer – is that a joke?

  • 991 2_goal_tino // Jan 5, 2013 at 4:41 AM

    Every club in Europe should be considering Jano Ananidze, just turned 20, youngest ever goalscorer in Russian leagues. Valued at 10-15 million when he was 18. Now his contract is running out the rumours is Spartak will listen to bids between 1.5-2.5 million for him. Whilst it’s true he hasn’t kicked on as much as some thought he would when he was 17/18 when he was being touted as potentially one of the best in the world he is without doubt already premiership class and has the potential to be amazing.

    I know an attacking midfielder isn’t what we need but he’s a bit like Santon in that he’s young, already good enough but cheap because he hasn’t developed into the player people first thought he would. Would love it if we put a cheeky bid in him (after we’ve wrapped a CB)!

  • 992 Sazzer // Jan 5, 2013 at 4:51 AM

    Some proven players. Cole is English as well. :)

  • 993 89Norcal // Jan 5, 2013 at 4:51 AM

    I have my doubts about Remy and a CB coming, much less another midfielder after that. But it would be nice.

    Will we beat Brighton today? I don’t know how good they are now were top of the Championship awhile back and flying and I know there aren’t there anymore but that means very little

    Am not fussed about the FA cup this season but equally I don’t want another bleeding loss very mixed emotions about the game today. Whose going to start up front aswell? Shola, Campbell… Ranger :(

    And why can’t Debuchy be on the bench? Surely he’s been registered and he’s fit not like we have so many players there’s no place for him

    Perch – Willo – Collo – Santon
    Tiote – Anita
    Cisse – Marveux – Obertan
    Shola

    And this is our best XI when all fit (4-3-3)

    Krul
    Debuchy – Saylor – Collo – Santon
    Anita – Tiote – Cabaye
    HBA – Marveux
    Cisse

    Worlds apart imo.

    It’s such a massive relief mate, and it’s great to see Cisse through the middle.

    I didn’t realise this until a journo wrote it after the Everton game, but we actually only had 5 of last seasons starting XI playing against Everton.
    Now Collo and Cisse is also out against Brighton and none are back in…
    Madness! One cannot plan for this ammount of injuries, anyone would struggle. Anyone.

  • 1039 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Jan 5, 2013 at 8:39 AM

    Yo….I expect this to be a game where Pardew will not want to risk any important players, even from the bench. League at this point has to be priority. Hopefully when the EL knockouts come around we’ll be in a healthier position and can give that a little go.

    I expect a lot of fringe players today and really don’t know what to expect out of it.

    Brighton away makes me nervous, regardless of who we put out.

  • 1040 pizzicatochan // Jan 5, 2013 at 8:40 AM

    One more thing for Dannyo. I like your best 4-3-3 except that I would like to see Remy and Marveaux moved to midfield.

    But anyway, without Ba, our squad is more balanced in terms of who we can play. Two wingers and one CF…. not one CF and one CF pretending to be RW. I don’t like playing Ba and Cisse together and put Cisse on RW because we had to play them at the same time.
