Eight To Leave Newcastle In Summer – Five More Possible


There will be a number of players who will leave Newcastle in the summer, and for some of them,  they can now do very little about it, even if they want to stay at Newcastle.

gabby obertan

Gabby Obertan – one player who will definitely leave this summer

There are two groups of players – those for which it seems a lost cause at Newcastle and those where their performances in the final 11 games of the season could save their careers.

Here are the players who we think will be leaving Newcastle at the end of the season – whatever happens in the final 11 games:

  • Loic Remy – will sign for a Champions League club – like Arsenal
  • Gabby Obertan – not good enough, although he showed decent form in his first season for us
  • Sylvain Marveaux – not given much of a chance this season – terrible Tottenham performance could be decider
  • Jonas Gutierrez – fell out of favor at the club for whatever reason
  • Dan Gosling – out of contract – never made it on Tyneside
  • Shola Ameobi – out of contract after 14 years in first team
  • Romain Amalfitano – never good enough
  • Mehdi Abeid – very likely to leave, but he’s done well in Greece – deserves a chance in pre-season

And here are players who can still save their careers if the can impress over the last 11 games – otherwise they will be on their way in the summer

  • Luuk de Jong – has to impress to get a deal at Newcastle – must score some goals
  • Ben Arfa – his performance against Tottenham could have tipped the balance – and he could be sold in the summer
  • Papiss Cisse – what has happened to our Senegal striker?  Papiss cannot seem to score with the best of chances
  • Davide Santon – had two stinkers against Sunderland and Tottenham – could go back to Italy in the summer
  • Steven Taylor – has not played well when given his chance this season – local lad may seek pastures anew

In the second list, we’d like to see as many as possible do very well through the end of the season, and we’ve taken a special shining to Luuk de Jong, who seems not only a good player, but just a smashing lad too.

Not on either list is Fab Coloccini, and whether he leaves ort not depends a lot on what his personal situation  – and we don’t know what it is with his family who are in Buenos Aries – but we hope the captain stays on Tyneside through the summer of 2014 – we need him

And we’d love to see Luuk and Loic as the front two – they both have skill and movement – they could be a really cracking duo for the Magpies.

And if only we could sign Loic Remy permanently – yes it would take a miracle – but I’m told miracles do sometimes happen. 😀

Here’s hoping (and praying).

What do you think?

    I would not be surprised if remy stays all depends on him but regularly playing in front of 50,000 cans must be a fantastic feeling we should offer to pay him what he is worth and just see what happens

    Serioisly though, i hope you are right. Cant see it though. I think we would need europa league to have even an outside chance of keeping him.

    Oops lol obviously meant fans he looked ecstatic and could not wait to celebrate with the fans (right in front of me) when he scored so why would he not want that every home game like I say all comes down to wages

    Heres hoping.

    there is no reason why we cant now. We have broken our awful run, and have the best of our players available. I expected at least 8 points from 4 games (starting with villa) with hull, fulham and palace to come. If we hit decent form then we should be able to deal with manure up here. Everton will be tougher

    I had never heard of Granier till we were linked to him but watched him twice now since and we should go all out to get him I would say from what I have seen dare I say it but he looks just as good if not slightly better than cabaye like I say that’s only two games he might have been terrible the rest lol

    just because we win 1 game doesn’t mean that this will be a win win run, if you’s watched the Villa game you will notice that Villa could of had 4 goals by half time lucky for us Benteke didn’t have is shooting boots on, and lucky for us Krull seen that shot coming.

    we had 2 open free shots that both Remy & Cisse missed

    Of the 11 starters I expect they’ll all be there apart from Remy. I’m glad we’re getting rid of the dead-wood. Hopefully we can get some young Championship players to warm the bench.

    Will be an interesting summer regardless. Shola, Guti, Marv and Gabby are pretty much certain to be binned in the summer.
    HBA, Santon and Cisse look like they may be off as Pardew has lost faith in them. Though I think this will depend on who we can bring in as to whether we sell them.
    Remy would be one hell of a coup, think this would depend on how some of the bigger clubs bought in the summer whether he would be available to us. But still very unlikely.
    Debuchy could be off if an offer from a Champions League club comes in and with his best mate gone I wouldn’t put it past him to want to leave.
    Do think De Jong will be snapped up by us for around £7 million. But apart from that a lot of chopping and changing will be taking place.

    I know nothing is certain. All i am saying is that breaking the losing streak could easily give us some confidence. It happens all the time in football.

    Those lists are all over the place!

    HBA only possible? Unless the boy signs a contract in the last 11 games he’s nailed on to leave, the club have basically said so, same for any one on the last year of there contract!

    As for Colo wasn’t basically said he can leave with the clubs blessing if he did one more season?

    Still have a feeling we can keep Remy, he ‘s been great for us but haven’t see what you’d call a CL performance from him

    PMFL we are not heading for Europe we don’t have a manager for this class.

    1 – do we have the players for this? NO
    2 – do we have the manager for this? NO
    3 – can our chairmen reach these expectations? NO

    true mate this does happen, but Pardew will find a way to reverse this, regardless of our recent results in 3 seasons Pardew still plays only 1 style defence first, attack past the 80 minute mark.

    Pardew speaks of inconsistency within the players, I say it’s his style that’s inconsistent

    Would be interesting to see who Pardew would sign if he was given free reign a lot of people say it would be Bent , Tomkins and Noble but in reality that would be an improvement to our squad (Although maybe not hugely but would be much better than our current fringe players )

    Bent – Would have scored more goals than Cisse and Shola combined if given the same amount of chances and game time when we had Cabaye hes scored more for Fulham than those 2 donkeys for godsake !!

    Tomkins – Miles better than Taylor and probably a better defender than Willamson , would probably play well with Willo , Colo or Mbiwa as Taylor is the weakest link

    Noble – Tidy midfielder who can get stuck in and can also create would have been a good squad player to add for depth would be better than Marveux and Obertan at least he would try in a game

    The above players are all speculation on this blog as too who Pardew would sign but I do remember interviews where he has said he has tried to sign Defoe, Lallana, Lambert , Townsend , Long for this club and he mentions giving Jonjo Shelvey his league debut

    Thats quite a list of players who would certainly have been great for us (apart from Townsend who is overrated) if we had signed Long for up front or wide forward , Lallana as no 10 and Shelvey as a deep lying midfielder we would be a much improved team and it would have also gave us strength in depth to rotate properly

    History has shown that when there is a mass movement (in and out) of players the resultant team rarely performs well as it takes quite awhile for almost all players to adapt to a new club, new tactics, new players and for some a new country, new language and culture.

    Therefore, I don’t see such a big clear out as Ed does.

    Pardew is definitely over cautious. Thats my big problem with him. This results in the inconsistency. I still feel if he could just throw the shackles off and attack, he could get 90mins of good play from the team. I think it is a mental issue.

    Everton and Man Utd both have better teams than us, its not impossible but considering we have very few creative players and limited striking stars its unlikely we will be able to amount a real challenge for European football…add to that the owner doesnt want it and the manager doesnt like it

    Players for whom we will get bid:

    Europe should be the last thing on our agenda, last season showed what we were missing.

    but with a good manager and a good set of rotation players top 6 would be a priority especially with our club reputation
