Newcastle To Send Five Players Out On Loan

11:18 am, Thursday, January 31st, 2013 by Ed Harrison · 207 Comments

With the loan spell successes of 19 year-old Curtis Good at Bradford, 20 year-old Brad Inman at Crewe Alexandra and 21 year-old Conor Newton at St. Mirren, it’s hardly surprising that Newcastle have allowed 21 year-old Paul Dummett to return on loan to St. Mirren for the rest of the season, and we could see as many as five more players sent out on loan soon.

Xisco may be sent out on loan today if the right offer is made for him, and that’s likely to be the last we see of the Spaniard, after he’s been at Newcastle five years this summer, but has only played 11 times for the Newcastle first team in that period.

Alan Pardew has already said that he wants Newcastle’s top youngsters like Sammy Ameobi, Shane Ferguson, James Tavernier and Jak Alnwick to go out on loan to get first team experience, and we could see all five players move out in the next couple of weeks.

And Massadio Haidara made his first outing for the Newcastle U21 side yesterday as we lost 3-0 to Reading in a behind the scenes game, with young goalkeeper Jak Alnwick being sent off in that game.

It’s hard for top youngsters to advance quickly when all they play is Reserves games – so we should see a lot more of Newcastle’s youngsters out on loan next season and in the seasons ahead.

18 year-old Adam Campbell, who got some praise from Alan Pardew a couple of days ago, when he said the North Shields lad was unlucky not to make the traveling squad for the Aston Villa game after impressing in training, could also see some time out on loan before the end of the season.

    Window closed for NUFC fans.

    Transfer deadline day for everyone else, Thursday for us.

  • 2 BelfastMagpie // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:22 AM

    We’re finished according to Llambias fs.

    No new striker could put us in trouble, in my opinion.

  • 3 Hatem's better than Messi // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:22 AM

    Danny Graham to the scum for 5M.

    Poor lad, there’s just something wrong about that.

  • 4 Moe_UAE // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:22 AM

    How about Shola Ameobi?
    Surely he needs to be sent on load somewhere ..

  • 5 naptoon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:22 AM

    llambias says we are done … end of interview craig says i know your busy … smoke and mirrors …

  • 6 Joe Blog // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:23 AM

    Beckham hasn’t had a bad globe trotting career has he? Manchester, Madrid, Milan, LA and now Paris!

  • 7 JackButler // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:24 AM

    A striker and left sided winger in the summer and we will be in very good shape, just need a manager to get the best out of the squad and we can have a very good season ;)

  • 8 hdavid23 // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:24 AM

    Llambias says we’re done? that means we’ll have at least 2 more coming in, he’s a liar

  • 9 Hatem's better than Messi // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:24 AM

    @BelfastMagpie

    I posted earlier if Cisse is crocked we’re screwed.
    Two bits of bad luck to strikers and we’re down.

    Shola and Ranger to keep us up … ffs buy DG.

  • 10 FloridaToon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:24 AM

    Rumor:

    Bent to L’pool.

  • 11 Joe Blog // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:25 AM

    Think we’re playing it all down, trying to bung up anyone who’s on our scent. At least that’s what I’m telling myself to keep the excitement alive!

  • 12 Spreadthetoon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:27 AM

    Campbell should play in the 1st team or should be loaned out to another premier league club like Lukaku IMO. This lad has a bright future but no point him being on the bench etc.

    As for transfer business, if we’re done then OK, but I’d still like to see a winger & or a striker. Time will tell.

  • 13 JackButler // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:27 AM

    I still expect us to sign a striker ans Pardew has said on numerous occasions that getting someone in to replace Ba was a priority. Plus Ashley has just flown into the training ground so really expect something to happen

  • 14 BelfastMagpie // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:27 AM

    Think about it. If Cisse gets injured, Ameobi will be our main man. I don’t see why we’re so against loan deals.

  • 15 naptoon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:28 AM

    me aswell joe just doesnt make sense for ash and llambias to fly to benton on deadline day

  • 16 Transfer Sage // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:28 AM

    I want us to bring somebody in still, we need another forward.

    Why is Ashley and Llambias at Benton if everything is done?

  • 17 Spreadthetoon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:29 AM

    btw if we’re done then why has MA flown in? don’t make sense, the man is a very busy individual running his businesses, so can’t see he’s out for a day trip on a school day unless there could be something???

  • 18 Lilongwe Geordie // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:29 AM

    Llambias says we are finished. Means nothing really, we have heard all sorts of things said by Pards, and in papers from DL regarding transfers over the past few years and rarely has it been what actually happens.

    As for loaning out another 5 players, we still have a thin squad, and we still have Europe to play in. Losing Simmo potentially, and Nile unlikely to play again, can we afford to, despite them needing the experience.

  • 19 JackButler // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:29 AM

    Look at all the bids we’ve put in for strikers so far???

    Surely something must be happening behind the scene’s

  • 20 naptoon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:29 AM

    smoke meet mirrors … mirrors meet smoke. (hopefully)

  • 22 Spreadthetoon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:31 AM

    don’t wanna get carried away with conjecture but has MA been spotted in town or is this just wild rumour! hahahahahhahaha

  • 23 TorqToon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:31 AM

    TS – it’s fairly strange – everybody at the club, JUST to meet the players?!?!

    It’s intriguing. As I say – still plenty of legs on this I feel.

    Exciting isn’t it??? :-)

  • 24 Ben3arfa // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:32 AM

    Llambias said that we will not sell anyone ? What about Simmo and Xisco ?
    Also that young Swiss Kid we’re gonna buy?

    Stop talkin bollocks for once Lamearse

  • 25 TorqToon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:32 AM

    Repost -

    Still plenty of talk about Newcastle Utd going around lads – so time will tell.

    Hopefully there won’t be any major negativity about no more signings (should that happen) as I think we are in very good shape for the season.

    PEA could still happen lads.

  • 26 rainrix // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:32 AM

    Belfast… I wondered about loans as well. The trouble is if you want someone of quality then you have no choice but to buy. For example we’d never get PEA on loan they’d want money for a replacement. You basically have to look for 3rd/4th choice strikers. Although if they are quality such as guidetti for example its something we should look into, this board just doesn’t seem to like loans apparently

  • 27 Nick 69 // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:33 AM

    Spreadthetoon – he’s deffo here, Llambias has just admitted he’s flown in today. But he says its just to meet the new signings.

  • 28 BelfastMagpie // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:33 AM

    Over the moon with the other signings like, but signing a good striker should of been a priority. Just hope Cisse doesn’t get injured

  • 29 BigKirky // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:33 AM

    After what happened with R€my do you think that they would say anything other than we aren’t bringing anyone else in? Regardless of whether there was or wasn’t, no.

    Here’s to hoping for another player!

  • 30 ~Anita One Bites the Dust~ // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:34 AM

    Whats this nonsense about Strolla and Gangsta being our main strikers if Cisse is crocked?

    We have Goofy who is a Striker / Winger. He can also play the central role.

    There is still hope.

  • 31 JackButler // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:35 AM

    Belfast, still think we will sign a striker the club has said all window that getting one is is a priority, and why else would Ashley be at the training ground, he after all hands on now with all signings

  • 32 BelfastMagpie // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:35 AM

    Ashley flew in to meet the new players apparently.

  • 33 Nick 69 // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:35 AM

    I really cannot see us signing anyone today. Ashley never buys on deadline day. If we wanted another striker, moves would have been made earlier in the week. Prices are inflated on deadline day as its harder to find a replacement, and Ashley will not get dragged into that sort of deal

  • 34 ~Anita One Bites the Dust~ // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:35 AM

    Don’t forget Mr Versatile. I’m sure Perch can play as a Striker.

    If anything. He would be ahead of Gangsta.

  • 35 FloridaToon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:37 AM

    I think Perch has scored more goals too.

  • 36 Hatem's better than Messi // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:37 AM

    ~Anita One Bites the Dust~

    If you don’t read people’s posts properly they will seem to be nonsense.

  • 37 GeordieRealist // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:38 AM

    The comments on here are often ridiculous, but always entertaining. But check out the comment on this article about Les Ferdinand costing Newcastle the Premiership title, by “not being able to score”..!!!!

    http://whatculture.com/sport/newcastle-transfers-10-worst-ever-premier-league-signings.php

  • 38 Transfer Sage // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:39 AM

    We could still be in for players.

    Not every club will want to go and get a replacement, some might already have brought the replacement in.

  • 39 naptoon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:40 AM

    nick 69
    santon , xisco , sibierski etc etc in
    milner caroll etc etc out
    ash loves deadline day

  • 40 Transfer Sage // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:40 AM

    Although ashley going to the training ground could well be to meet the players.

    Business wouldn’t be conducted there would it?

  • 41 FloridaToon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:41 AM

    TS

    Sporting has brought in another striker and RVW’s agent said he didn’t know what was going to happen with him today.

  • 42 TorqToon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:41 AM

    We are in trouble if we don’t bring in a CF?!

    Howay lads…stick the kettle on a relax! We are in VERY good shape!

  • 43 naptoon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:42 AM

    ts
    think medicals done there and final signing on

  • 44 Transfer Sage // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:42 AM

    florida

    Good news maybe

    I’ve seen a few reports that norwich have bid again for hooper today…also got beccio on his way for medical.

  • 45 Hatem's better than Messi // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:45 AM

    TorqToon

    We have Cisse (not in great form but scoring).
    Gouffran – looks promising, but will he score?)
    Shola (Mr 1 in 5)

    Two injuries and …

    3 strikers is not enough for a EPL relegation fight.
    It’s a huge gamble.

  • 46 lewytoon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:46 AM

    why dont we bid for hooper??

  • 47 Transfer Sage // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:46 AM

    naptoon

    Thanks. I guess the medical would be done in some part there at least but thought terms would be agreed and signed anywhere…not that Ashley would have to be there as contracts can be faxed easy enough.

  • 48 TorqToon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:47 AM

    Gouffrans goals prong stats in Ligue 1 are comparable to Cisse and Ba’s stats in Germany!

    Live the kid some credit!! He is a goalscorer!

  • 49 rainrix // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:48 AM

    Although i can only remember cisse missing 1 game in the past year which was against brighton, he’s not like man of glass taylor. Its similar to last year when we were desperate for another CB. We’re walking a fine line no doubt but i think regardless we’ll pull through.

  • 50 dubzy // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:48 AM

    Got a funny feeling for a last ditch bid for danny graham

  • 51 TorqToon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:49 AM

    Hatem – Gouffrans goal scoring stats in Ligue 1 are comparable to Cisse’s and Ba’s record in Germany.

    Give the kid some credit – He IS our new goalscorer! With pace as well to add an extra dimension.

  • 52 Transfer Sage // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:49 AM

    Another striker would be ideal but its not desperate. I think we have enough goals in midfield with cabaye, ben arfa, marv, sissoko…all capable of chipping in with a few

  • 53 Unbelievable Tekkers // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:50 AM

    Torq – Would that CB target that kets will be pleased with the one who plays in holland who he never shuts up about?

  • 54 ryan toon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:50 AM

    GUYS LAMBIAS ISN’T GUNNA SAY WE ARE GUNNA BE SIGNING A STRIKER IS HE, WE COULD STILL GET SOMEONE!!!

  • 55 Hatem's better than Messi // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:51 AM

    Not in the EPL he isn’t.
    I hope he scores a goal a game but it’s very unfair to Gouffran if he becomes our main striker (Cisse injury).
    That would be pressure.

    Shola and Gouffran can’t be relied on for goals.

  • 56 TorqToon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:51 AM

    Plus we have goals galore in midfield.

    HBA
    Cabaye
    Sissoko
    Marv

    And potential to score from the back

    Taylor
    Yanga
    Colo

  • 57 TorqToon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:51 AM

    Tekkers – That’s the one mate! :-)

  • 58 Transfer Sage // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:52 AM

    I’d love to see us get PEA or RVW in now though, makes us so much stronger for our run in.

    Gouffran has a good record but is yet to prove it n england, not saying he wont but it’s an unknown for now.

    Benteke should be a summer target if villa go down, we need a striker who can hold up the play, bring others into the game but is also skillful and has a goal, he would be perfect for us.

  • 59 lewytoon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:53 AM

    just bid for graham, van wolfsiwnkle, abameyang or hooper

  • 60 TorqToon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:53 AM

    Hatem – NOBODY can guarantee you goals..

    It’s about having the belief that they are capable of it.

    Gouffran is MORE than capable!

  • 61 geordie157 // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:53 AM

    Who was the rubbish player we had on loan that I think was signed by wise?

  • 62 Transfer Sage // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:54 AM

    torq

    I’ll give you goals from midfield but not the back haha.

    Those 3 CBs do not score…much less than your average CB.

  • 63 rainrix // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:56 AM

    Geordie… That was nacho gonzales. Unfair to call him crap, he got a pretty serious injury after 2 games and didn’t play any more after that.

  • 64 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:56 AM

    How we doing lads…any nervous breakdowns yet?

  • 65 Hatem's better than Messi // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:56 AM

    TorqToon

    Wow if you think that.
    I’m looking at our team minus Cisse and not seeing anywhere near enough goals to win games.

  • 66 Assam Toon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:56 AM

    in a cisse less scenario, pards could play hba, gouffran and marvs upfront. And cabs & sissoko behind themBarca has played without a genuine striker. playing strolla or gangsta instead would be so half hearted.

  • 67 Carryingcoals // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:57 AM

    The business we’ve done this window, when you consider our expectations January 1st, has been phenomenal. Five players. I for expected ‘one in, one out’.
    Sissoko and Mbiwa are top, top players (yes I sound like Harry Redknapp, it must be deadline day fever!) and Debuchy looks to have settled in steadily. Haidara will soon get up to speed and whilst Gouffran isn’t the replacement for Ba as such, he is still a forward option far superior to what we already have.

    I can’t see us getting the striker we’re all after today, more likely it will be our top target in the summer. I do think business is done and I won’t be wasting my night glued to SSN!

    To spark a bit of debate here, I wrote an article for the mag about Jonas’ performance tuesday night. What do you guys think? I’ve summed it up as ‘classic jonas’, frustrating but useful that kind of thing…

    http://www.themag.co.uk/the-mag-articles/tuesday-night-was-classic-jonas/?

  • 68 Unbelievable Tekkers // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:58 AM

    Torq – Thanks mate. After some of the disastrous signings we have made in the last 10 years it really is exciting to be going after such highly rated young players to go with the ones we have just bought.

  • 69 Pardews Parsnip Bonce // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:58 AM

    now i might be wrong here but isn’t gouffran a striker?

  • 70 Carryingcoals // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:59 AM

    also, transfer sage – completely agree on midfield scoring options, cant wait to see sissoko cabaye HBA and marv in the same team.

    krul
    debu mbiwa colo santon
    tiote cabaye sissoko
    HBA Cisse Marv

    - options like taylor, anita, gouffran on the bench – squad is looking far better

    ^ obviously that’s just my opinion on our potential best starting eleven. I know tiote has been poor this season it must be said

  • 71 TorqToon // Jan 31, 2013 at 11:59 AM

    Hatem – You will see mate. That’s all I will say.

    And TS – Taylor was verging on prolific before his injury last season, colo enjoys being in front of goal and has been unlucky, Yanga is capable of it, even debuchy and santon can score.

    Records might not be great – but now we have a too squad, hopefully they will be able to get forward more.

    Hatem – You seem to have watched Gouffran quite a bit?! You located in France?

  • 74 santonthenewmaldini // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:00 PM

    To be fair how long did it take us to get a center back and reinforcements?!?! 2 or 3 windows so by that timescale we will have Ba’s replacement in the summer and just make do with what we have got

    Only worry is how serious we take this Europa league as we have a chance to go far but it would mean Cisse will have to play a lot of games Gouffran could do a job in the league if Cisse needs a rest

    Also there would maybe be an option to have Arfa or Obertan up front if need be?!?

    Would rather them than Shola as it would mean we would have to keep it on the deck plus when I look at Suarez for Liverpool up front Arfa could do a similar job he has all the attributes to do it

  • 75 big rich nufc // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:01 PM

    Lets hope we get a striker in today, llambias said Ashley has flew in to greet the new signings,, blah blah blah, why today?? He has had all week to do that, I really hope it’s a smoke screen and we have someone lined up I’ve taken today off work for this lol so hope we get someone in, pleased with wot we have signed tho,go for bony? Hooper? Graham? And most of all bid 8mil and bring Carroll home I would love that… Howay the lads.. one more please mr Ashley we still need a replacement for demba

  • 76 toon smart // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:01 PM

    I still think we need to go for a striker/winger who can score and assist.

    For me this can be –

    PEA
    Dries Metens
    Nacer Chadli

  • 77 dubzy // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:03 PM

    @Carryingcoals

    LOL what game was you watching…. Gutierrez was SHOCKING !!!!

  • 78 BelfastMagpie // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:03 PM

    Not replacing Ba is a massive gamble. Just hope it pays off.

    Considering the amount of goals Ba scored for us, it should of been a priority that he was replaced, in my opinion.

  • 79 Transfer Sage // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:04 PM

    torq

    taylor hasn’t scored since the 10/11 season…been about 2 years we have waited.

    same for colo

    mbiwa got only 1 last year

    santon hasn’t scored a senior goal for any club

    debuchy scored none this season but 5 last

    I agree with you 99% of the time but I don’t think this defence has goals in them.

  • 80 headtheball // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:04 PM

    We have missed out on Scharner as he is back to Wigan on loan. One of us will be Disappointed?

  • 81 Sazzer // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:05 PM

    So are we getting 7 m £ for Simpson today? =)

  • 82 DonegalMagpie // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:05 PM

    Parsnip I was thinking the same….. Liked him on the left against Villa ….But if god forbid Cisse gets injured im sure he could fill in.
    To be safe we need more cover … Maybe Pardew is gonna bring Cambell through. Also I think we need Simpson to stay til summer for cover for Dubuchy.. Bit of a live wire Dubuchy . I like that,players getting stuck in but just not to ala Toyota Fuking Landcruizer aka Toite!

    Just hopfully no nasty out going last minute deals

  • 83 Sazzer // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:07 PM

    Jonas 35 m £ to QPR. No replacement in.

  • 84 Hatem's better than Messi // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:07 PM

    I’ve seen him v us for Bordeaux and on Tuesday.
    He looks lively.

    I just have more sense than to expect a foreign player to hit the ground running. They usually take time to settle.

    Isn’t transfer deadline day a busy day for cardiologists?

  • 85 TorqToon // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:07 PM

    Yeah fair enough – but I just feel that we have players who are capable of chipping in with a goal or 2.

    You watch – it’ll be Yanga and Taylor with the winning goals against Chelski!

    Ok…maybe not…!
    Haha

  • 88 TorqToon // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:10 PM

    Hatem – I can assure you I have plenty of sense, my friend. I have worked with and watched Yoan Gouffran many many times. I hope he will come good, hit the ground running and prove to you and others what he can do.

    As for Cardiologists being busy on deadline day…that’s a strange one! If you are referring to medical club staff then yes I would imagine them to be fairly busy…me?? I’ve bagged myself a day off.

  • 89 Hatem's better than Messi // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:11 PM

    Bonjour lads, Mike Ashley has landed on the training ground with his helicopter. It is being said he is here to speak to the new signings and to make sure the out goings such as Simpson and Xisco go through. Derek Llambias doesn’t know whats going on as all the deals for the 5 players was forced by Mike Ashley to come in. So expect a shock signing of Center Forward/Left Winger/Striker one of those with that young Swiss player coming in. Never believe anything that twat says, he looked half drunk and doesn’t know whats completely going on as Mike Ashley will most likely surprise us.

    He was, going forward that is – typically.

    However he was much needed in the second half as the article points out.

    It’s not huge Jonas love or exaggerating his performance, it’s more of an insight in to what he brings to the team and a look at how justifiable his inclusion can be in games.

    Your contribution to the debate has been second to none, bravo.

    I’m all for loaning players out in order to get them experience – good for the player, good for the club – but I feel our squad is still too thin to let the likes of Sammy Ameobi or Fergie go. We could really regret that if we get 2-3 injuries or suspensions (and this is Newcastle we’re talking about, it’s not so much an if as a when). Unless, of course, we haven’t quite finished in the transfer market yet…

  • 105 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:19 PM

    Torq…Perhaps you could share some relaxation tips or other useful information on preventing heart issues throughout the day.

    I’ll start you off.

    1) Aspirin

    In 1998, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advised people that have already had a heart attack to begin taking an aspirin a day to help prevent another one. The popular pain reliever, in low doses, works to help prevent clotting by thinning the blood. If your blood isn’t clotting, you’re less likely to have a heart attack. The American Heart Association (AHA) also suggests a daily dose of aspirin to help prevent a first and second heart attack.

    ­However, many people haven’t heeded the warning about taking too much aspirin, and nearly 250,000 adults are admitted to the hospital each year for internal bleeding as a result. The FDA and the AHA recommend that adults stick to the minimum daily dose, which is only 75 to 81 milligrams. This is the equivalent of a single baby aspirin. When you consider that a standard full dose of aspirin comes in at 325 milligrams, people who pop one of those per day are doing more harm than good. Before you start an aspirin regimen, you should consult your doctor. The requirements are different for men and women and not everyone is a good candidate for aspirin therapy. You also shouldn’t drink alcohol if you’re on a daily aspirin dose because it can increase your chances for internal bleeding.

  • 106 Transfer Sage // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:19 PM

    “Some interesting words from Toulouse president Olivier Sadran in L’Equipe about the future of France midfielder Etienne Capoue. Sadran says he has turned down a £10.3m bid from QPR because, “the club has no pressing need for money and I didn’t think it was a good move for him. He felt a move to QPR could be a springboard (to a bigger club) in England. I told him if they’re relegated, it could be an abyss.” Sadran, meanwhile, confirmed the 24-year-old, who has also been linked with Tottenham, Arsenal, Everton and PSG, will be allowed to leave Toulouse in June.”

  • 119 Sazzer // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:26 PM

    We need a left winger first and foremost. If he can play striker then great but we need to get rid of Ameobi and Cisse as wingers.

  • 120 Carryingcoals // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:26 PM

    parsnip

    I think we’ve dodged a bullet over Remy, for that fee and judging by his goal and injury records of late, I don’t think he was the type of player to bring in given our current precarious position.

    Gouffran is the signing I’m least confident in. I think Sissoko and Mbiwa will settle no problem, but Gouffran will have to adapt to the physicality of the PL. He is a nippy little player and creative of course, maybe a bit like Marveaux.

    I think he could take the longest for us to see his best stuff.

    Happy we got him though, it’s awful being at the game and seeing the likes of Sammy and Ranger thrown on in the hope they can have an impact.

    Good squad addition and hopefully he can get up to PL pace quickly. He did an alright job Tuesday.

    It is difficult for players. They maybe go there with the intention of convincing the fans its more about talent than race but sadly it hasn’t come to pass.

    The way they go on though I’d be very tempted to chuck them out of european competition.

    I have noticed spain have cracked down a lot of racist chanting. Even 5/6 years ago you would hear monkey chants and general abuse towards black players. I’ve watched a fair bit of la liga this year and have barely seen that so its a good step.

  • 133 Transfer Sage // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:37 PM

    Carrying

    A decent read.

    What my probems with jonas being used for defensive duties and his work rate are that he gives the ball away too often.

    This means that although he battles to win it he gives it away and that invites pressure on us because we need to make sure we keep hold of it to take the sting out of attacks.

    In fairness to him though he gives 100% and he does win free kicks for us when we need to wind the clock down.

    I just think as a CM/DM we have better options. As a winger we have better options ( a wingers main job is attack, defense in secondary which is the opposite to jonas)

    Jonas is a valuable squad player though and not bad to have on the bench.

    I did notice at villa he got forward more in the first half, even popping up in the box.

  • 134 rainrix // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:39 PM

    Sage… Thats good to hear that spain have cracked down. Also i haven’t heard to much about racism in italy so it looks like its getting better there as well.

    It is much harder to crack down in eastern european countries. I doubt their governing bodies would do much to help with the problem so its pretty much up to fifa although what good they could do is debatable. To be fair though the european championships went off without too much trouble.

    Of course you’ll never eradicate the problem any way, you still get racist idiots over here :|

  • 135 Carryingcoals // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:39 PM

    Thanks Ibiza.

    I purposely wrote this with the intention of overwhelming disagreement, stirring up controversy to generate greater debate.

    Do I think Jonas was brilliant Tuesday night? No – far from it. He prohibits the flow of attacking moves and I’d even prefer Obertan at times, as Jonas can no longer run past players as I point out.

    The point I’m trying to make, and with the intention of inviting disagreement, is that in that second half when Villa dominated and inevitably took the game to us, Jonas’ qualities shone, in the sense that he worked and toiled to keep them out.

    I completely agree that he will be surplus to requirements. Though having knocked him all season, in that second half when we were under the cosh, he reminded me of why I initially loved the guy – he will give everything to the cause.

    It’s a shame that his attacking credentials have diminshed so much.

    And dubzy, duz u not tink i know hez tripe. is u dappy in disguys man?

  • 136 Pardews Parsnip Bonce // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:40 PM

    @ibiza he is fine. he was nowhere near as bad as muamba. he’s lucky because it happened in a police station and not at home alone. he actually is quite upbeat and even laughed telling the tale.
    that said he’s a bloody nutter. probably why he was at the cop shop in the first place.

  • 137 Carryingcoals // Jan 31, 2013 at 12:41 PM

    I agree with you. A valuable squad member but as we said at the start of the season – he is no longer a winner and in the middle we have far better options.

    Looking at the squad we have, we have some real pedigree and class – vitally, competition now exists also.

    Appreciate your response.

    I’m sure it will certainly spark debate. I do understand all the negatives with Jonas and why it frustrates fans, but as you say, he does still give 100% and puts in some crucial effort that many others simply don’t offer on a consistent basis. When your back is against the wall Jonas and his work rate are hugely important imo.

    The good thing about campbell is that he has pace and doesn’t rely on his strength, he just runs in behind people which is what we have been lacking (hopefully gouffran can do this).

    Afternoon everyone,anybody gotta link 4 sky sports news???

  • 182 croftus5678 // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:20 PM

    i say go for maiga and put a low bid in for bent seeing as av need money to strenghthen.

    after cisse/goufran imo cambell or (swallows hard) ranger are our best hopes :-( and in fairness ranger should have been kicked out of the club long ago and i really hate it when after everything he’s done i still think of him as our 3rd/4th choice.

    Croftus I really hope Ranger gets done … He has brought nothing but shame to our beloved club and nothing to the table ! Get shot of him no gangsta pun intended :-)

  • 186 Spellcheck // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:24 PM

    Thanks Toon smart!!!! Bored at work i am.

  • 187 croftus5678 // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:24 PM

    cheeky bid for david ngog would also do as it looks like he wants to move on

  • 188 Lilongwe Geordie // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:25 PM

    Definitely nobody going out….So possible incoming then? To be fair, I would like a new attacker in today. If we got him, I’d like to see Campbell sent to a Championship club to cut his teeth. He is the main one (and Streete) that I want out on loan. They will benefit more at their age then Sammi or Fergie would now.

    If we don’t then Campbell has to be involved with the first team, and has to get minutes on the pitch, for me he should start the Europa games at least. If I see Ranger on the pitch, or bench ahead of him I will be annoyed.

  • 189 Lilongwe Geordie // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:30 PM

    Croftus, wouldn’t want N’gog, and Bolton have already turned Fulham down for him. He isn’t good enough, and would be an expensive stop gap. He has a worse goals to games then Shola… Would rather see one of our top targets come in, or just stick with what we have and give Campbell a chance.

  • 190 Phoenix // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:31 PM

    Ngog is boumsongs cousin,enough said

  • 191 Tekkers29 // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:36 PM

    I’m at work but as my boss is out i can’t take my eyes off sky sports news.

    love sky Go

    Also from someone who has never put me wrong is that we will bringing in at least 3 players in the summer which will be 1x CB and 2x forward players (1x inside forward and a striker) the striker we are hoping for is PEA as he would not move in this window because of the cup final he will be playing in.

  • 192 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:42 PM

    Tekkers…Sounds good to me. Be interesting to see what we do in the summer given we’ll be running at a profit plus will have the extra TV monies in.

  • 193 belgrade fan // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:43 PM

    I m really very happy about this transfer window, but cant believe we sold our best striker without replacement. in this situation it could be extremely dangerous. Cisse injured and we r in deep problem

  • 194 Transfer Sage // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:45 PM

    belgrade

    gouffran is a striker

    10 in 24 this year
    14 in 31 last year

    decent record.

  • 195 damma99 // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:46 PM

    No more transfers. Mashleys copter just flown over my house goin south. Still needed another striker.

  • 196 Spuggy // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:46 PM

    Both Cisse and Gouffran are top strikers and Gouffran’s main position is in no 9 role so he can fill Cisse’s shoes if injured.

    As far as no 10 style strikers go we have Gouffran, Cabaye, Sissoko and HBA who are all a goal threat in that position, and of course Marveaux, Obertan and Shola can do a job there too.

    I think we’re fine up to the summer unless both Cisse and Gouffran get injured (they have very good injury records).

    I do not think we will be signing anyone today – our Remy money has been spent, and very well I might add.

    In the summer we get the Ba’s replacement and if we’re lucky a LW who can get 5-10 goals a season in (unless Gouffran proves to be that man).

    However the biggest challenge in the summer will be a replacement for Colo if he goes which I think is likely.

    Ashley copter has left the training field #nufc

    There you go. Go get that winger!

  • 198 belgrade fan // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:48 PM

    Transfer

    well yes, but he seems more as a winger-striker, I thought about classic CF like Gomis etc.. cant see Guffie as a classic number 9.

  • 199 croftus5678 // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:48 PM

    @194

    yep gouffran is very underated as a striker.

    saying that we still need someone in case of injury or loss of form ect as we basically have no one even if ba was still here.

  • 200 Transfer Sage // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:48 PM

    Ashley doesn’t need to be there to do deals so don’t worry.

    Our business may well be over but Ashley leaving doesn’t mean we are done.

  • 201 toonarmydownsouth // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:49 PM

    Cant stand this presenter muppet on SSN he knows about footy so why have him presenting deadline day? His sport is clearly croquet!!!
    Toon update after the ads!

  • 202 Transfer Sage // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:51 PM

    belgrade

    I know what you mean. We need a ‘proper’ cente forward. Somebody who can do shola’s job of holding the ball and linking play but also offer more up front.

    Perfect player for me is benteke….want him hear, especially if villa go down.

    I think a move for guidetti on loan would be an option, just back from injury and will want to prove himself.

  • 203 Transfer Sage // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:51 PM

    tads

    which one is it?

  • 204 tequilamag // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:51 PM

    Campbell should be nowhere near the first team this season.
    None of the young players have coped well and have been slaughtered by the hatemongers on here. I would hate it to happen to Campbell. Look at Sammi , a couple of Ok performances in pre-season and he is the next big thing. A few poor performances in a struggling side and he is written off as worse than Shola. Give Campbell a chance to learn his trade. S spell on loan away from SJP is the best option for the kid, let him make his mistakes where he will not get his confidence destroyed.

  • 205 Transfer Sage // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:53 PM

    tequila

    Campbell is so much better than sammy though. He would get a few goals.

    I dont mind young players who aren’t very good, the lack of effort in both attack and defence by sammy is what i find a problem.

  • 206 Tsunki // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:54 PM

    Well I know Ashley doesn’t normally stay in Toon during the week, but he was definitely driving around Jesmond last night in a black BMW (part of my failed conspiracy theory earlier).

    Anyay I am moving away from the scaremongering business it doesn’t pay. :(

    A mackem (ahem) associate of mine says D Graham was roundly scorned by the crowd at the scum v swans game the other day. Dont expect he will be welcomed into the fold unless he puts 3 past us.

    Without a full complement of strikers we will probably have to revert to the fabled strike from an attacking midfield/carpetball that Pards promised his new boys we would play after all. :)

    Either that or the Row Z hoof thing. Again.

  • 207 tequilamag // Jan 31, 2013 at 1:57 PM

    TS I think Campbell has bags of potential, I just want that destroyed by bringing him in too early.
    I also think sammi can stiill make it. Don`t think he is lazy at all just a bit poor in his decision making at the moment which is to be expected in a young player.
