Moussa Sissoko In Trouble With Toulouse


The Toulouse’s chairman, Olivier Sadran, has suspended Newcastle target Moussa Sissoko, as Toulouse seem very upset that their star could join Newcastle for nothing in the summer.

Moussa Sissoko – in trouble with Toulouse

But that’s one of the possible scenarios with Moussa – who is expected on Tyneside today – and he could sign a pre-contract deal today to join Newcastle in the summer, when his contract runs out – although we’d like to seem him arrive this month – but Newcastle would need to pyr around £2.5M to get the player through the door.

Moussa  was withdrawn yesterday from the squad to play at PSG tonight in the French Cup, and it’s hard to blame Toulouse too much for being a little upset, because they could use some money from selling one of their best players, but it still seems unreasonable to suspend the player.

The Toulouse coach, Alain Casanova has told the French daily L’Equipe that the French club stand behind the Chairman’s decision (who pays his wages again?)  to suspend Sissoko:

“The whole club shows full solidarity to the chairman’s decision.” It is really a shame that a player educated by the club could leave as a free agent. His absence is a big loss for the team but that decision is correct”.

We may hear some more news on Sissoko if not today – then tomorrow – but we would expect Newcastle to try to sign him this month – and Toulouse would then receive some compensation from Newcastle.

He’s worth £2.5M now – if it means keeping Newcastle in the Premier League for next season.

If Moussa does stay at Toulouse until the summer when his contract runs out,  the club may not play him again in the first team.

Let’s sign this lad this week on a permanent basis at Newcastle.

    ToonBano on Rickie Lambert – “The more I think about this possible move, the more I like it.”

    So forget this news with sources mentioned based drivel, get over to ToonBanal blog to see what flavour cheese he likes on his toast and how Alan Pardew is so wrong for not looking at his Excel stats spreadsheet…

    Of all the players we have been linked with THIS is the fella i always hoped we would get.

    Powerful, good footballer who is much better than Tiote. (Tiote on current form)

    Would boss the midfield and has pace.

    Its my view that the failures of this season are down to 4 things, they are;

    Lack of investment in summer
    Injury problems
    Bad managment by Pardew
    Certain players not peforming (perhaps due to lack of investment and problem in dressing room)

    Which of these is the worse? i don’t know and i want to claim im completely right ie Bano

    But is it unfair to possibly only single out Pardew, i think so, there are many other factors involved which could be more of the cause

    Did we play poor before the injuries mounted up, yes but the dressing up and players could be just as accountable as this as Pardew, and besides managers will make mistakes but its whether they learn from them, in the seasons case maybe the injuries stopped him from solving the problems, who knows.

    As for the reading game, i definately think we lost due to Pardew and him changing tactics after we scored to a more defensive tactic and taking Marveaux off who in my opinion was the best player alongside Anita on the day

    For me the jury is still out on Pardew but it would be really backward sacking him now, but why don’t we use the rest of the season to rank him accordingly based on what he does with the new players and Ben Arfa back.

    Why are we still arguing about whats the main cause of our decline?

    We have had many issues this season including recruitment, management, playing and injuries and most accept that. Some think one is more predominant the others (I do also) but I think its fair for everyone to say………

    i think its mainly injuries……..or
    I think its Pards…………..or
    Its MA and DL…….

    Whats annoying is when someone says, if you dont think its ‘x’ or ‘y’ you’re a fool, sheep etc.

    Bano

    The “Marv mistake” wasn’t even a massive mistake! He subbed Marv instead of Cabaye and then suddenly and unexpectedly, Cabaye feels a slight tightness which forces Pardew to make another change, a change he didn’t want to make.

    His hands were tied due to the poor bench we had, and if you turn around and say “why did he bring on Bigi and not Obertan” my response would be that Obertan has been slated as not being good enough by NUFC fans from the day and hour he got to the club, and if he is the best attacking threat we have on the bench then that surely is an indictment of how poor and threadbare our options are?

    Tuff…just look at Laudrup at Swansea (he speaks a bit Italian, German (Dutch) and i fluent in Spanish)

    …helps him alot when he brings in foreign players (especially the Spanish players) Plus he’s knowledgeable about the continental playing style!

    *hence why we need a foreign (French) coach I think 🙂

    jesper – this is the video link it was taken last year when Percy Parsnip was on a cycling holiday in France. It also shows him trying to “tap up” the female serving refreshments. (Percy is best known in the football world as a shagger) Link:-

    geordiesteve520…Michel Platini once said about Laudrup “that he had everything, but he was just too unselfish”!

    …I actually think that trade has proved to be a pros instead of a con in his coaching career!

    So then lads do we all reckon Gouffran and Mbwia will be starting against Villa? Or are we expecting them to be slowly introduced? I know it depends on how they train with the team (and they certainly have enough time to blend in fairly well Id say if they are adaptable

    Jesp, most of the foreign players speak English and the ones that don`t generally pick up the language fairly quickly(compare that to Barton who picked up the accent but I bet has made no effort to learn French)

    ToonBano is a complete prick. And his “blog” (I use that term extremely loosely) is a joke. People only go on to tell him what a tosser he is!!!

    As for Sissoko, we will win this one. They want to bench him but will have to pay his wages for another 6 months. Another 750k minimum. As well as not getting a fee. Or, they accept a nominal fee from us for around 1 million, and get him off the wage bill.

    Sissoko wants to play with Cabaye. We want him, so he will come. Even if he signs a pre contract, there is still room for manoeuvre before Feb. 1.5 million to the club and the same to the player should see us get him now.

    We need a new cb with siem de jong and ricky van wolfsfinkel to stand a chance of beating relegation. oOtherwise no chance..

    Once we survive , here’s what nufc have to do.

    1) sack pardew ( this season have expose his lack of tactical ability)
    2) sell shola
    3) sell obertan
    4) sell jonas
    5 ) sell tiote
    6) sell williamson
    7) sell sammy ameobi
    8) sell ryan taylor

    In addition i would buy christian benteke and a good cb

    …but we all know sometimes things get lost in translation! It probably wouldn’t hurt for Pardew to know a bit French or having a french coach beside him!

    For what it’s worth, if Toulouse want £2.5M now for Sissoko, then he’s worth it. He is one of those players who can drift in and out of a game, but just one touch can change a game significantly. I would give them some wedge and have him now.

    Wwycd. If they’re read, play them. We have to change the dynamic of our game somehow. Might shock some of the other players into picking their form up if they’re dropped.

    I just cant help imagining Mbiwa bombing forward with his power and then passing the ball to Sissoko to bomb even more forward and then passing it to HBA to unleash one of his thunderbolts into the to corner. It could soon be a reality!! I still can’t believe Mbiwa is ours, I am chuffed 😀

    Jesp, I agree up to a point but even at Arsenal who are years ahead of us at playing a largely French team , Wenger still communicates to the squad in English.
