Lyon’s Bafetimbi Gomis is still probably Newcastle’s first choice in the transfer window, and we are supposed to be negotiations for him and according to Sky Tyne and Wear his wages are the stumbling block- and Newcastle will not raise their current wage offer – so again if this is true – we seem to be in another stalemate – why do Newcastle seem to have huge difficulties getting players into the club?
Bafe Gomis – wages are the problem
And if we cannot get Gomis through the door before next Tuesday rolls around Demba Ba could be an alternative but we don’t think he will come back to Newcastle.
So if Newcastle fail with those two strikers it seems out next choice could be Marseilles’ winger/striker Andre Ayew, and there was news in the Times earlier this week that Newcastle had lodged a bid for for around £7M.
But as usual it seems that the selling club – Marseilles – are said to want around £10M for the 23 year-old, who has been capped 43 times for Ghana and scored 13 times in 45 games for Marseilles last term – and looks a very decent player.
So it’s a very dodgy time for Newcastle fans at the moment, and the very least we need to see before next Tuesday, is a top striker coming though the door, but things are being left very late – and that’s a huge concern.
And now for something completely different – as the Monty Python crew used to say – way back when.
Here’s a video we saw yesterday that was made just two weeks ago – and bear in mind Madeline and I have a daughter called Elaine, who has her own very successful makeup business.
She seems a confident girl.
