bafetimbi gomis - pink

Bafetimbi Gomis - would look good in black and white stripes

Here’s a look at a player who could be Newcastle’s first senior signing of the summer,  Bafetimbi Gomis of Lyon and formerly of Saint Etienne – and here’s some of his best goals from last season.

I would usually imbed this video, but the owner has not allowed any imbeds.

Comments welcome, but please be civil and respectful to other readers, and keep the comments to football and Newcastle – thanks.

    I’d love our away kit to be bright Pink would look awesome.

  • 2 JackButler // Aug 3, 2013 at 10:18 AM

    Lyon are claiming that the deal is being held up because of the amount of commission Gomis agents want, but the Gomis camp are saying it’s because Lyon are refusing to pay the 5% sell on fee to AS Saint-Etienne. and are waiting to see if Newcastle are prepared to pay it

  • 3 colwell // Aug 3, 2013 at 10:22 AM

    JB

    5% would work out at 400,000e, not too bad just have a feeling we’ll tell them too fcuk off now.

    Are you going to duck and take cover, so you don’t have to come to terms with your ignorance, once again! You’ve already been schooled on 2 separate issues, I should charge you a fee!

  • 6 JackButler // Aug 3, 2013 at 10:27 AM

    Lyon are in serious financial trouble and need every penny that they can get, but knowing how Ashley works they could soon find themselves looking for a new buyer as he’ll walk away and leave them to it

  • 9 toonfan76 // Aug 3, 2013 at 10:31 AM

    Just had a little look at that video. Obviously you can’t tell much from a few snap shots of his goals but i did notice that he can crack a shot with both feet and his technical ability seems to be decent but like i said too little to make a fair assessment of him, there could be games where he’s taking fresh air shots or contolling badly or skying his strikes. Has anyone seen him play enough to make a comment on his quality?

  • 10 croftus5678 // Aug 3, 2013 at 10:31 AM

Won’t attack one of the clique, Ruddy, for using language that is pejorative towards the handicapped, and now because you don’t like home truths, you suddenly get hung-up on one of those terms, to try and get me kicked off, something you’ll never achieve, you circle jerkers!

  • 20 croftus5678 // Aug 3, 2013 at 10:36 AM

    @9 toon

    if i was looking at this from an outsiders point of view i would see him as outstanding in 50% of his games and poor in the other 50% and some of those goals came in his poor games tbh !
    his hold up movement/strength and eye for an assist are prob his best attributes as he’s not the most prolific (but i think his style is suited more to the prem hence hopefully more goals)

  • 21 Jail for Ashley // Aug 3, 2013 at 10:37 AM

    Jax,
    Spot on.

  • 22 Yorkgeordie // Aug 3, 2013 at 10:37 AM

    From other video I have seen, Gomis is a strong cf who plays with his back to goal, holds the ball up and lays it off wide. My first reaction when I saw it was, Cisse won’t suit playing alongside him as Gomis plays down the middle. However from what I’ve seen of Remy he plays either side of centre and I can see him playing alongside Gomis.. I wonder if there are plans to move Cisse on. Just my opinion

  • 23 JackButler // Aug 3, 2013 at 10:37 AM

    A word associated to people whose lack of intelligence, manners/etiquette, appreciation, moral fibre and glaring social ineptitude, which in turn allows upstanding, educated, decent, moral, intelligent, socially respectful and hard working people to perceive them as “degenerates” (owing to their inherent and blatantly obvious flaws).

    What do you mean, we won’t achieve getting you kicked off? You were kicked off as plana right? I complained to Ed that you kept referring to JFA as an obnoxious little turd, with no attempt to actually engage him in discussion. We have had a day free of your postings, so I assume Ed acted on the complaint. Then you give yourself away immediately with your new name by referring to JFA as an obnoxious little turd.

    Either way I don’t really care, you don’t talk football at all and have little to contribute other than initially unprovoked insults

    Really hope you are wrong on this but northern echo are saying we are back in for Bent as the club believe Remy wants to stay in London.

  • 36 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 3, 2013 at 10:56 AM

    @NUFC_Stats: The Journal says NUFC are willing to pay Rémy’s wages in full and a £2m fee for a season’s loan deal #nufc

    Where are people getting we’ve walked away from the gomis deal?

  • 38 Hatem's better than Messi // Aug 3, 2013 at 10:57 AM

    The Journal are saying we´re signing Gomis on a three year deal. (If it goes through)

    Oh, so now you’re wrong, again, you don’t care!? So free reign to use spastic/cretin/mongoloid etc, or completely prohibited, as they all carry the same connotations? If the latter, I hope you remove your tongue deep enough from Ruddy’s rear, to inform him, as he seems to think mongoloid is reprehensible and cretin is just fine! I suppose he never is a very good point man, for morals, given his background in law.

  • 40 Marty-Toon // Aug 3, 2013 at 10:58 AM

    This is one of the clips that shows Gomis all round hold up and distribution play.

    Looks like a perfect foil for Cisse.

  • 42 Ben3arfa // Aug 3, 2013 at 10:59 AM

    seems lik ewe’ve found Mike Ashley’s equivalent in French football . Jean Michel-Aulas

    Although Aulas actually showed ambition and splashed the cash when Lyon had money at their disposal.

    Him and Ashley should be best friends for life lol

    People are putting two and two together and coming up with five, the Gomis deal is being held up by agents fee’s or Lyon demanding we pay the 5% sell on fee (depending and what report you read).

    While some have the Remy deal being completed in the next 24 hour’s yet others are saying that he wants to stay in London and will join West Ham.

    I’ll only believe any deal when the player is holding up the shirt

  • 46 Jail for Ashley // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:02 AM

  • 47 Marty-Toon // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:03 AM

    One player from Lyon that would be worth a look at is GRENIER and at 22 he’s already a quality midfielder with a good eye for a defence splitting pass

    @croftus5678
    Cheers for the reply, so who would you say he compares to in the Premiership, past or present? I have heard he is like Drogba but find that difficult to believe due to the fact that a lot of the so called bigger clubs would have been interseted in him too.

  • 53 SeanNufc87 // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:05 AM

    i know right!? hes barely put a foot wrong since being here!

  • 54 Spuggy // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:06 AM

    It’s a lot for a player valued at 10m+ but if you want your man and don’t want to be left short for the season you gotta pay the readies.

    Any updates on Remy? If we get him on loan and Gomis I think we have a formidable first 11 with a few very good backups. A 2nd/3rd choice keeper is needed to.

    A decent left winger and decent ball playing backup CB would complete the line-up but that ain’t gonna happen. Then next season we need to replace Obertan with a better RW.

  • 55 Spuggy // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:06 AM

    Gomis is no drogba, he isn’t as domineering or as good a ball player. He’s quicker though.

  • 56 toon kk // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:07 AM

    If that does happen and Cisse does end up on the wing (again) then Pardew should be sacked for gross misconduct

  • 62 Spuggy // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:12 AM

    Gomis should only play up front on his own or BEHIND cisse or remy.

    My line-up would be:

    ……………………….Krul…………………

    Debuchy…M’biwa…..Colo….Santon

    …………..Sissoko……..Cabaye……….

    …HBA………….Gomis…………Remy

    ……………………..Cisse………………….

  • 68 Marty-Toon // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:16 AM

    Really think Gomis is overrated by our fans,
    Ok he scores goals and holds up the ball in the French league.
    His passing is often way off and he’s as often caught offside if not more than Cisse.
    He’s an ok option for us but that’s a fair bit of cash for someone with a year left when you consider how much we’ve paid for some of our top players now

    Marty toon,
    He’s all we’re getting so it’s best to try and get behind him.

  • 73 Spuggy // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:20 AM

    Lequipe today as above

    Bafé Gomis had agreed on the terms of his contract with Newcastle, which has since reached an agreement with Lyon on the amount of transfer (€ 8 million). But so far, the French international striker is not yet a Magpies player. According to our information, the completion of the transfer stumble on some details. For OL, it is the agent’s commission Gomis, considered too greedy and for the “Panther” and his entourage, the problem is in fact the compensation of solidarity that rests in Lyon (5% the amount of the transfer, to be repaid to former club player, Saint-Etienne). Newcastle did not want to take over in his place.

  • 74 Yorkgeordie // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:21 AM

    Marty
    I like what I have seen on video, I can see him slotting into the prem and I think he could be a favourite.

  • 75 toonfan76 // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:22 AM

    I think Spuggy has the best formation for us if we get those 2 in. I think a combo of Sissoko’s strength and speed alongside Cabaye’s vision and passing range feeding that front line should be more than capable of pushing most of the defences in the league onto the back foot. Santon and Debuchy will not have to make too many forward runs and leave us exposed. Looks the part to me!

  • 76 swisstone // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:22 AM

    Marty

    Is that the lad that does the two step overs in the vid before defence splitting pass that gomis tucks away?

    Looks a player if so!!!

  • 77 Marty-Toon // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:24 AM

    @tads
    I get that GRENIER wants to go to Arsenal if anywhere as they’ve got the CL and Wenger is a big part of him wanting to play there too,but I meant that he’s the type of player we should be going for although I feel we need to take a side step from the French league for a while(we’re maybe getting too many French players) and try Belgium/Holland/Austria and Switzerland for players where often rough diamonds appear out of the blue

  • 78 swisstone // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:27 AM

    By no means an expert in world football but this gomis debacle suggests a severe lack of striker quality in our target market!!

    Seems hardly any alternative

  • 79 Marty-Toon // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:27 AM

    Swisstone
    Not sure but it probably was him.
    He plays with a number 7 on his back,quality player.
    Any good Swiss players of that age?

  • 80 Marty-Toon // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:29 AM

    @Jail

    I get what ya mean with backing him and of course if we get him over the line then fine but it gives the view that our scouting system isn’t as good as we think it is?
    Is someone controlling where Graham Carr travels to?

  • 81 Spuggy // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:31 AM

    Gomis quality is probably ideal for a team with european football like us. He will be behind cisse, but no CL team is gonna come in a nick him so he should be content to be on the bench a bit if remy comes.

  • 82 Transfer Sage // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:35 AM

    Sounds a good deal to me. The amount it costs for a match ticket at Newcastle these days they want to be signing a few players for that sort of fee.

    A player has many values…but the main one that counts is the selling club. To them he may be worth 8mil…he could be the difference between getting champs league and Europa league to Lyon.

  • 83 Ben3arfa // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:38 AM

    Does anyone know if Remy is playing for QPR today??

  • 84 potski // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:39 AM

    The video Ed posted and others I have seen, show Gomis scoring goals, up front through the middle and in most it looks like he is on his own. Is there any showing his all round play? Why do you think he could play behind Cisse?

    I’m seeing him more as playing alongside in 4-4-2, or instead of Cisse.

  • 89 Transfer Sage // Aug 3, 2013 at 11:42 AM

    Marty

    I’m not sure there will be a limit on Carr. A lot of scouts work only certain regions as they have their best contacts there and get to hear things like a players interest in staying/going and also hear hits about release clauses etc.

    What we really need to do is find a few more top draw scouts from places like Poland, Czech Republic , Russia, South America etc and begin to look at those markets to vary things a bit.

    I think Remy or a similar player is more important coming in than Gomis.

    Football related question as dont do tit for tat but can anyone tell me if the suggestions that Haidarra should go out on loan who will put pressure on Santon?
    Now i know some will say Dummett but a spell in the SPL & half decent displays in preseason would not persuade me to have to rely on him as our LB cover.
    Some will say Yanga but IMO he should be 1st choice CB and captain for me alongside Collo as Saylor is vastly overated.
    Papers today report Gomis 99% done but follow that up with NUFC are aware Cabaye wants to leave this window and McCarthy is lined up to replace him.

    If it weren’t tragic, it would be funny how the less intelligent posters such as TADS, JFA always feel the need to gang up on people who get the better of them. It’s depressingly pathetic and like being back at primary school.

    Might is right ?

  • 98 geordie157 // Aug 3, 2013 at 12:06 PM

    I see Inman has been training with Crewe, but can’t sign for them as the clubs can’t agree compensation.

  • 99 count // Aug 3, 2013 at 12:09 PM

    As for the pathetic accusations of people having multiple accounts. I would be willing to bet that it is the people chucking the accusations around that are the ones guilty of actually doing it.

    Also did JFA say earlier that a troll is someone ‘sad’ with too much time on their hands…… Again, accusing others of your own sins.

  • 100 bills-son // Aug 3, 2013 at 12:12 PM

    @96,

    If Cabaye wants to leave this window he is saying all the wrong things in his interviews.

    If PSG or ManU were interested there would be far more speculation and rumour in the press. They both know Ashley will want £25M minimum and Fabregas for instance at £30M is a far far better buy.

  • 101 ToonDarnSarf // Aug 3, 2013 at 12:14 PM

    It’s like a comic book on here sometimes with all the alter-ego’s. A certain person comes on and then when he/she isn’t getting the reaction he/she wants the alter-ego comes out as a back up. Problem is, the alter-ego comments in exactly the same style and picks a fight with the exact same people, making themselves look obvious. You know who you are!

  • 112 Spuggy // Aug 3, 2013 at 12:31 PM

    Cabaye on training…

    “The aim is to keep the ball a lot more than we did last season.

    “We gave away the ball too easily sometimes last year.

    “The manager wants us to keep passing and take two touches.

    “Then we have to move after the ball.

    So pards is a hoof merchant.

  • 113 Spuggy // Aug 3, 2013 at 12:33 PM

    What I love about Swansea is they don’t panic on the ball, they don’t smash the ball at other team mates, they pass it measured, sometimes slow. helps the receiving play pick it up, control it and pass more quickly and accurately.

  • 114 Spuggy // Aug 3, 2013 at 12:35 PM

    Tads I come here to read about football but you keep offending my sensibilities.
    I have been reading the blog since it started. If I think someone is a gobshite then I have every right to tell them.

    It is people like you that have an “opinion” (supposedly) on everything. Not me. That is why you get stick from people. Because you never shut up but are very dull.

  • 116 toon kk // Aug 3, 2013 at 12:37 PM

    It like when Williamson on and we get a corner hes the only player who is targeted.

  • 118 toonfan76 // Aug 3, 2013 at 12:38 PM

    Do any of us not think it is the less technical players that encourage the “hoofball style,” for instance the likes of Stevie Taylor and Williamson who are not so comfortable with the ball at their feet. Saying that, if the players in front are not making themselves available for the passthen that is a different matter.

  • 121 Spuggy // Aug 3, 2013 at 12:48 PM

    Pass and move is 50% technical ability and 50% confidence. It’s a culture.

  • 122 Yohan Kebab // Aug 3, 2013 at 12:48 PM

    i dont blame the hoofball on pardew, i blame the failing to stop the hoofball on pardew

    when players confidence is low they will tend to make more long hopeful passes as they do not want to receive and keep the ball as much as they would when in a rich vein of form

    all the noises from the club are positive and there is no evidence cabaye wants to leave

    even without signings i think people forget the potential of our squad

  • 123 ToonDarnSarf // Aug 3, 2013 at 12:50 PM

    Why can’t people just ignore the trolls and WUMs? It could be a cracking weekend with a couple of signings and all some people are doing is bitch and argue. I didn’t rise to the Nazi bait earlier and I have no intention of doing so.

    If we can get these 2 players, we can move onto the ‘nice to have’ list hopefully.

    Your information has been very very incorrect. It was not myself, Jail for Ashley or Rotonda who “forced” Torq off the blog.

    John Tudor was the one who gave him grief and Torq took it personally enough to take himself off the blog.

    Would be nice if people didn’t associated me with all these silly goings on. The only ITK I gave grief to was proudtobeageordie.

    Cretin:

    Noun
    A stupid person (used as a general term of abuse).
    A person deformed and mentally handicapped due to a congenital thyroid deficiency.

    Now, one could decide which of these definitions was applicable, however, it is also the same when one uses the term b*****d. One could perceive it that they are being insulted for being born out of wedlock, however, that is rarely, if ever the case.

    I think it’s a combination of pardew sticking with the safe option due to the lack of confidence within the squad
    The lads just didn’t seem comfortable with possession last term we invited pressure constantly before aimlessly punting the ball down the pitch

    Hopefully it will all change next season, get a bit of confidence back in the team and we’ll see a different squad

    Nico was a good defender, but often unlucky. I remember we were playing the makems, he had had some treatment, the mackems broke forward, he was waved back in the pitch, busted a gut to get back to block a cross, and promptly headed it into his own net. Felt so sorry for him then, as it was just a freak deflection. Less commited players would not even have made it back. We still won 2-1 though.

    Sorry this is a long message, but I can’t understand why people think gomis is going to be playin along side cisse in a 4-4-2. Jfk is tryin 2 bring players 2 suit APs 4-2-3-1.
    Cisse will be up top, with gomez in behind, doin the job sissoko was doin last year in the number 10 spot. And remy on 1 of the wings with hba on the other to complete a strong 4-2-3-1.
    Gomis likes 2 come deep 2 pick up the ball. He’s not a 20 goals a season striker. He’s not there 2 get loads of assists, what he will offer the team is hold up play, and find the wingers hba and remy so they can create something. His stats wont be great at newcastle, but he will part in alots of goals.
    Example, krul will play long 2 gomis, who holds up play and finds cabaye, cabs play feed in hba, who will cross 2 cisse in the centre, and he will convert.
    That’s why a lot people think he goes missing, that’s cause its his job to scrap for the pieces, u can even say he will do the dirty work in attack.
    His record doesn’t seem great, he will be the link between mid and attack. His got good strength, good feet, good long shots, and brings others in2 play. Don’t judge him by goals or passing, but how he brings others in2 the game.

    Moved out here in 1979 when I was 25. My father died in 1976 and I came over with the old girl who was marrying an aussie and wouldn’t do it unless I came too,

    The idea was to see her settled and come home after 2 years but their marriage only lasted 6 months and he took us for almost everything we had.

    She wanted to come back but I got a good job, made some great friends and wanted to stay so I told her she would have to go back on her own, She stayed, remarried again and had a good life here until she passed away in 2002,

    Tads, sorry had to go out but yes, the meeting did get a little heated but with the amount of people invited to an open meeting that had representatives from the club will attract a variety of views and different approaches to expressing them. It certainly wasn’t as manic as the last meeting when Kinnear’s mate got heckled and tbh he deserved it considering what his message from JFK was.

    The new club PR lad seems canny and come across well but he’s got a difficult job and hasn’t really done much to date yet.

    Alot of the meeting was about how the club was starting the fans forum and how it would work but it did have to be pointed out to them that the club are being made to do this under a Eufa directive and not out of the goodness of their hearts and care and consideration for us fans!

    What (if any) signings do you see us making between now and the start of the season? I know we’re strongly linked with both Remy and Gomis, but things could go pearshaped yet.

    Is this enough? Do we need more signings to achieve mid table? Where do you see us finishing this season? Will our football improve next season?

    It would help if he could get the players name right. Rumor has it, he has had the staff working under him searching for people called,

    Louise Roomy
    Obafetimbini Gomez and
    Darius Brent.

    It’s the reason why its taken so long for the club to make any progress in the transfer market.

  • 369 Bearsize // Aug 3, 2013 at 4:04 PM

    Ruddy
    Hi mate yeah i think we’ll get them both but i think that will be it.
    I feel we will perform better this season as they seem to be working on fitness, which we lacked in abundance last season.
    We need to get in behind teams, its so frustrating watching them try to plough through the middle every time.
    Think santon sissoko debs anita will have stormers this season. It all just hangs on pardews inability to rotate his players. He wins a game and thinks that is the winning formula for the season. He has to rest players at the right time for us to be successful. Think 10th at least is realistic just need pards to be a man

  • 370 mikeashleyisamackem // Aug 3, 2013 at 4:12 PM

    My opinion changes all the time it is influenced by the club what i read on here and trying to take into account everyone s arguements
    i have been completely unpatient in waiting for a signing but will judge come the end of the window but if we show no sign of ambition that will be it for me with this regime i am not asking us to do a man city but we are always 1 or 2 players short of having a chance of a good season it came as a suprise to everyone even mike ashley when we finished fith ya would a thought he would want to kick on and take us to the next level but he plays it safe everytime if he got us a champions league team he could put 20000 more seats at newcastle and make more money

  • 371 Ruddy Marveaux-lous // Aug 3, 2013 at 4:12 PM

    Bearsize

    I’ve a funny feeling that Remy and Gomis could be our summer business, if indeed we get them in, although I am open to the prospect of being surprised.

    I think it’s very disappointing that we’ve waited so long to make any progress in the transfer market, with just 2 weeks until the start of the season we’ve signed no one, which is very frustrating.

    I agree that we need to stretch teams and get in behind them, but in order to do that we need to have attacking midfield players capable of beating the man in front of them, at the moment I don’t think we have player, save for HBA, with this ability.

    I do think Anita, Sissoko and possibly Debuchy will have much better seasons but I am very unsure about Santon, his defensive ability seems to depend on whether Colo is keeping him in check or not, which is not good enough for a full back at this level. Santon needs to ship up defensively this season.

    Pardew does need to have flexibility in terms of both rotation of players and tactics, something he has shown incapable of doing in the past 2 seasons, and something I feel he will continue doing in the upcoming season.

    I wouldn’t mind if he stuck with an attack minded team with fluid tactics, but he is stuck with his usual poor players despite others on the bench being more worthy of a game, and his tactics rarely inspire us fans.

    Here’s hoping for a better season, but not holding my breath.

  • 372 mikeashleyisamackem // Aug 3, 2013 at 4:20 PM

    yeah if we bring in 2 quality signing we will be in good shape for a top 10 finish imo if we dont we will linger in the bottom 10 we lack goals that was the problem last year we relied to much on cisse and it will be the same this year if we dont bring anyone in which wouldnt suprise me

  • 373 Bearsize // Aug 3, 2013 at 4:25 PM

    Ruddy
    I agree with the midfielders, we do need a bit of magic in there. Not sure ben afra is the answer for number 10 i know some people think he is the answer but he gets ‘options overload’ in the middle and tries to much, at least on the wing he can cut inside or get to byline. Hope he proves me wrong though.
    Do you ever get the feeling the board frustrate us this much on purpose, just to get us desperate for anyone coming in? If we are spending NUFC’s money and not ashleys why is he so tight? He has nothing to lose by paying an extra million out of the clubs pot to get someone over the line
