Newcastle In For Top England U21 Winger


It seems that Newcastle are now willing to meet Blackpool’s price of £8M for highly rated Blackpool winger Tom Ince.

Tom Ince – Newcastle target

But the news in the Mirror is that Newcastle will only bid for Ince, if they sell Yohan Cabaye, and of course Tom is not a like for like replacement for Yohan Cabaye

If Newcastle do sell the Frenchman, they must, with the emphasis on must, replace him with a top central midfielder.

The bad news is that Tottenham are now interested in the England U21 International, and that’s what happens when you delay moving in for a target, other clubs will become interested.

And the Mirror is reporting that Paul Ince, Tom’s famous father and former Manchester United and England midfielder, wants his son to move to a club where he will get regular playing time.

That gives Newcastle an advantage, because it’s more likely he will get more playing time at Newcastle, because our squad is not as strong as the Tottenham squad.

It seems that Newcastle are willing to sell Yohan Cabaye, but only at the right price, and that’s at least £20M.

But it looks like the Tyneside club may be planning on how to use the money they will get for Cabaye,  and we could be in for multiple players.

But if the last nine weeks is anything to go by, and the snail’s pace at which Joe Kinnear appears to have carried out Newcastle’s transfer business, we’ll be lucky to sign one player never mind multiple players, and that’s whether we sell Yohan Cabaye or not.

We’d like to be proved wrong on that.

    Ed you’re killing me here, every time I post an passionate comment you make a new thread! haha

    Beattie

    I don’t see myself as enlightened, I don’t see myself as having an opinion that is superior to anyone else’s, I know there will be Newcastle fans the world over, Geordies and Gentiles alike who feel exactly the same way I do.

    I will have no problem standing in a room full of Geordies, with my staunch Irish accent, and telling people how disgusted I am with the disintegration of our great football club, but that they, the blinded sheep who trudge into SJP to “support” the team are part of the problem!

    Every time you buy a piece of club merchandise, every time you buy a ticket for a match, every time you renew a season ticket, you are not supporting this football club, you are feeding the very life form that is killing it.

    Until Jabba the Hut is starved of his financial sustenance, he will continue to consume this club whole, and have the blinkered masses under his wing, laughing all the way to the bank while he does it.

    Time to wake up, take action and reclaim our bloody club back.

    I may be ranting but I am seething and hurt right now.

    To be honest Ruddy, this “supporting the team, fighting the regime” phrase, I’ve been trying to get them to change it to “Support the team by fighting the regime”
    Going to matches is not helping NUFC but I do understand why people are still going.

    It would be a start, but if Cabaye goes money has to be spent in a hurry, Gomis then Ince, then Micah Richards as USAGEORDIE pointed out, then a real top quality centre midfield man to replace YOHAN.

    Yea I know “not a prayer” im like Augustus Gloop out of WILLY WONKA, ha ha.

    Pardew, who is desperate to add a striker, is also weighing up a move for Blackpool’s Tom Ince while club scouts also went to the Czech Republic to watch Maribor winger Agim Ibraimi against Viktoria Plezen. Ibriami, a 24-year-old Macedonia international, is available for around £3million.

    As for 3 in by Saturday, does it really matter? By the looks of it we will be minus another with the sale of Cabaye, one of those 3 will likely be Gomis who is not exactly what we need, and the other two, even if they are excellent forward thinking signings, will inevitably regress under Pardew’s inept management which is a symptom of an insidious ownership.

    See, good news is never good news in Newcastle United.

    Lets look at some evidence and try and grasp why Pards and co. are in France.

    A plane left Manchester airport at 8:05 this morning to Nice. I presume that’s what Pardew was on.

    It arrives in France at 11:15 am their time and he then has the option to either speak to Nice or Monaco.

    He flies back to Newcastle at half 10ish their time which is durning the latter stages of the Lyon game. A second plane flying to London is due to take off 30 minutes later.

    There were 4 men photographed together. Pardew, Kinnear, Carr and a bald bloke. Pardew and the bold bloke (whom I think is an interpreter) leave for Newcastle and Carr/Kinnear stay behind in the departure lounge to most likely fly to London.

    What could this all mean? I deduce we’ve been in discsussions with either Nice or Monaco (most likely Monaco) to try and sign a player or to get a player as part exchange for Cabaye.

    Kinnear is there as DoF, Carr is there as chief scout and Pardew is there as manager to try and sell the club to this player.

    Exactly, the regime are the ones killing the team, by financially supporting the regime through going to matches, they are ensuring that the team will suffer.

    Going to matches does more for their own conscience than it does for the team. 52,000 Geordie support on a weekly basis didn’t keep us from getting stuffed by Liverpool 6-0 did it? Or Sunderland 3-0?

    Going to the match does NOT make the team perform better. Going to the match only lines the pockets of the regime and makes the supporter feel good about him or herself.

    Time to get over ourselves and truly take action to get our club out of the shit people

    100% correct.

    It’s the worst tagline in all of history.

    “Support the team, not the regime”.

    It’s like people saying “support British Farmers by shopping at Tesco, but don’t support the massive corporations”.

    It’s like eh? It doesn’t make sense.

    Bold proposal, logistically could be insanely difficult to pull off, but even if we did it once, had an empty SJP and had the crowd watching the match in a neutral venue as a sign of protest it would be mammoth, but the effect wouldn’t be long lasting until we have attendances averaging lower than 40,000 on a weekly basis.

    I agree with every word but it needs to go further.

    We need to boycott all Mike Ashley money making schemes and also target Wonga.

    I’d love to be a member of Anonymous (the Internet hackers for those who don’t know) and take down the system.

    We need wiki leaks on this mo fo.

    The club needs to have empty stadiums for home games and massive numbers for away games.

    Imagine 10 000 at home and then 20 000 turning up away.

    That would show the players we support them but not the regime.

    Already said it’ll be interesting to meet you Ruddy and think you might enjoy what we’ve done and doing in our capacity, Fansutd has been a good forum for us to date but things are moving at a rapid rate atm.
    Thing I’ve found though is “it” can’t be done well or successfully over night and this can frustrate people.

    Home support improves your chances of winning which is why every year most teams have far better home records. More fans the better too. If people stop going it will hinder the team. In terms of taking money from the club, and that aspect alone, i suspect ashley is not one of our worst owners e.g. he is only taking back what is his. Someone posted earlier that shephard, hall etc took over 40m. This is life rich people make money. Not saying his other actions have not been terrible btw but starving him out is detimental as his fortunes and the clubs are intertwined now unfortunately.

    Got to make NOT going to the match a social event, not just staying at home and watching on telly.

    Hoying it up again

    Total boycott for a match. Rent giant screens and show the match on the town moor. I’m sure with plenty of notice the council would sanction this and help with organising/policing as long as they could remain “neutral”. Views of a completely empty SJP with thousands adjacent would be such a sight that I imagine it would make the news almost everywhere they report football.

    I fully understand this is a grand proposal and would take some pulling off but it would serve the dual purpose of media friendly protest and satisfy the social event of a match day.

    Thinking big. Too big?

    Obviously everyone would have to put their hand in their pocket

    For every Newcastle fan out there intending on going to the home match against West Ham this weekend I implore you to think again.

    You may think you are supporting the team but you are not. Your voice did not prevent the disastrous home defeats to Reading, Swansea, West Ham, Sunderland, Liverpool, or the umpteen other mediocre displays we rolled out onto our hallowed turf last season and your voice will not count this weekend either.

    As long as your voice is inside St James’ Park “supporting” the team, then Newcastle United will remain as it is, a crushed, shattered, pathetic version of its former self. Bring your voice where it matters, to the street, advocating boycotts, encouraging NUFC fans that the only way forward for the club is to take a step backwards from it.

    The players are paid professionals, they will understand if we refuse to turn up, they will understand that this regime has not been good enough, they understand that this management is poor.

    In your heart of hearts, you know it’s the right thing to do for the sake of our club.

    Why not organise an online flash mob targeting the twitter accounts of nufc, sports direct and wonga.

    Thousands of people all tweeting at once would trend worldwide and garner lots of attention.

    I agree that the Internet is a magnificent tool and should be utilised.

    Beattie, you are not wrong and I still respect people who still go to the match, even if they don’t buy the beer, burgers, programmes etc. it all counts to a degree but ideally I think you are right…. boycott!
    TV money is really effecting the strength of the fan base. I posted the other day that our game v Man U last season was the 4th most viewed premiership game of the season. That’s why Ashley’s here imho, £££’s.

    This season, I feel, will see the grumbling voice of dissent turn into a giant roar, and as long as we’re mobilised in the sense that we can give these dissenting voices of malcontent a vehicle to turn their angst into action, then we will be more than ready to take on this regime and take back our club.

    Guys on boycotting games. My numbers might be way off here, sure someone will correct me, but we are apparently geting an extra £30-35m from sky this year. Im told we make around £1m from a 50,000 attendance home game. We could literally have no crowd at any home games and under the new sky payments we would still be far better off than last year surely?

    Something grander needs to happen and happen soon.

    A minutes silence throughout the stadium in the 9th minute to mourn nufc perhaps?
