Frenchman Could Be Loaned Out Next Season


When Jose Enrique was at Newcastle from the summer of 2007 though the summer of 2011, Newcastle never really had a natural left back pushing him for his first team place,  and Jose was never really challenged, although the Spanish U21 International made great strides on Tyneside, before he pushed for a move away and ended up at Liverpool two years ago.

But now Newcastle have Davide Santon and Massadio Haidara fighting it out, and Yanga-Mbiwa, Anita and local lad Paul Dummett can all play at left back.

We noticed that 20 year-old Frenchman Massadio Haidara did not make the trip to Portugal, and news today in the Newcastle Journal that the 20 year-old may be loaned out for the first part and in pre-season training, may change his mind, and Massadio may be sent out on loan.

Haidara is a popular lad on Tyneside, after coming through that ridiculous tackle from Callum McCallum at Wigan, and the Newcastle fans sent the lad a ton of good will messages during his recovery, which was short because he somehow avoided serious injury.

And Massadio is good enough to be loaned out to a Premier League clubs, so we’ll just have to wait to see what happens, and a lot of it depends on the form of Geordie Paul Dummett, who has improved immensely from his loan spell at St. Mirren last season.

And that will encourage Alan Pardew to send out a lot of his good youngsters to get first team games on loan in the coming season – that’s what the big clubs like Manchester United do all the time.

And as an example that’s what they did with Tom Cleverley,  and he was loaned out to Leicester (15, 2), Watford (33, 11) and Wigan (25, 4) from 2009 and picked up 73 appearances and 15 goals and subsequently became a first team player for the Reds.

That’s a way Newcastle can bring on the youngsters and it seems to have worked big time for Paul Dummett last season at St. Mirren. where he got rave reviews.

And we are now starting to understand why, because he was Newcastle’s best player on Tuesday night,  and he brilliantly set up the fourth goal for Sylvain Marveaux

We think that Massadio needs to play next season, and being loaned out to a Premier League club or a Championship club would help him develop his game in England.

    All I will say is he was the reason marseille came second last year. if he was fit for the entire season they would have won the league. scored 18 goals.

    I think loaning Haidara out would be a good thing as he will presumably get more game time in the English game and be much better for it, than warming the bench if that.

    It certainly hasn’t done Dummitt any harm. A positive transformation, and very welcome.

    Lesh,
    Cheers mate! I know True Faith put local music stuff on their site, so may well include some African music references through the season.

    Vice President – I like the sound of that! I’m sure The Right Honourable Gentleman and President Kinnear has plans to promote the club in these parts!

    As for the extra £1, that will get me an extra 2 beers watching the cricket and COSAFA final tomorrow! What a generous leader we have!

    Good to hear, hopefully the level of competition for him will increase over pre season
    Good to hear he’s bulked himself up too hopefully he can stay fit and really push for the first team, but unfortunately staying fit is a big if for poor Harris!

    Does anybody now if haidara/bigi will be linking up with the squad in Portugal?
    I’m assuming they have been given more time of due to the under 21 World Cup?

    Indian/JFK junior,
    Taken from the Mag, but here are some Marseille fans thoughts on the Gignac bid.

    However, the really interesting bit was when I had a look to see what the Marseille fans were saying on their Forum about this transfer speculation….

    “I would give him a piggyback to Newcastle”

    “Oh pi** off! Somebody offering 14m Euros for Gignac! My f****** god, sell sell sell”

    “Great if we can replace Gignac, bring in one from abroad”

    “If you read this Gignac, thank you for last season but not anything before. With your salary and predictable game you have your limits, you can go. England is cool, you have a big salary and will move to a club of your heart”

    “You and me both amazed if they offer 14m Euros”

    “This is serious, 14m Euros for Gignac?”

    “If you take away his (Gignac’s) goals then his contribution to the team is close to nothing, I hate players like him”

    “Gignac has had a good season but 14m Euros…must sell!! His first two seasons were chaotic and if we refuse 14m Euros then we will look like fools when he leaves for 2m/3m Euros”

    Indian – Who do they think we are?

    We aren’t a CL side, we can’t offer regular European football, who do people think we can attract?

    Remy and gignac. Plus a creative midfielder and at a push, young CB. That will do me.

    €14mil is a silly price. Can’t see us paying that.

    I quite liked the “if you take away his goals, he contributed nothing”

    (ummm apart from 18 goals helping you finish 2nd!) haha

    They sound like some of our fans!

    Slank,
    A loan may do him good, but for me the Prem would be the only place to send him. Maybe a Hull, or Palace would be good. At the same time, I think he could push Santon for a place here, looked better defensively than Santon last season.

    As for Dummett, he did well against Motherwell, but them in a friendly is a far cry from competitive Scottish football, let alone Prem wingers against him.

    Wow… the level of arrogance is unbelievable, like they are masters of everything, like others are not worthy to speak on this blog other than those bunch of elites.
    Is there elite society of NUFC knowledge that I don’t know about here? or special clubs of elite NUFC know it all?

    Not to mention Gignac has only twice in 11 seasons as a first team player scored 10 or more league goals. The season before last he managed 1 goal in 21 games.

    Very true Lilongwe. While I would like to see haidara in Newcastle to keep Santon on his toes (we all know he needs defensive motivation) I suppose we have enough cover with dummet and Mbiwa. Though we have no clue how Paul will fair in competitive EPL games yet.

    Lil, maybe you could wear a black top-hat to official duties, ala Dr Banda? Paint white stripes on it and it’d be perfect in your new role as VP!

    Tads,
    Fair enough about Palace, I was just thinking of clubs that will be doing quite a bit of defensive work next season really. Don’t see the point loaning him to lower divisions as he has proved he can play at this level.

    Been viewing this site for some time now and I am amazed at the negativity here. First and foremost MA has a right to employ who he feels fit. Whether we agree or not doesn’t come into it. We all make a choice to but a ticket, he doesn’t force it upon you. We have tried buying success and that didn’t work? People are deluded we are not and never will be a big club! We have something however others envy and that is a fantastic fan base and we should at all times support our team 100%
