Eight Players Certain To Leave Newcastle This Summer


Newcastle will be having a mini clear-out after what has turned into a second half debacle this season and we’ve lost 12 of the last 17 games, and failed to score in 12 of them. 🙁

gabby obertan

Gabby Obertan – will leave in summer

Players who will definitely be moving on are out of contract players Shola Ameobi and Dan Gosling, even though Dan has played well for Newcastle in our last two games, when he finally was given a chance.

Romain Amalfitano and Gabby Obertan are two Frenchmen who have simply not made it at Newcastle and are not good enough, and  will also be moved out – and probably back to France.

Two loan players will also not be at Newcastle next season but for different reasons.

Loic Remy want sot move to a great club – and Luuk de Jong has not been good enough – and it may be he is not given many chances over the last 4 games, having already appeared in 10 games with no goals, and he’s never looked like scoring.

And it seems that Jonas Gutierrez has played his last game for Newcastle and will put on sale for £3M in the summer, and Conor Newton – on loan at St. Mirren for a second successive season will not get a contract renewal this summer.

And other players who could possibly leave in the summer include Ben Arfa, Sylvain Marveaux, Steven Taylor, Davide Santon, Papiss Cisse, Fabricio Coloccini  and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa.

But Newcastle have to be very careful that we don’t throw the baby out with the bath water – so to speak.

Some of those players are very good and Ben Arfa and Sylvain Marveaux have loads of skill, but it was worrying that Alan Pardew refused to even talk about Ben Arfa after Saturday’s defeat at Stoke City.

We shouldn’t lose much more than eight this season, because replacing them all could then be very difficult.

Comments welcome.

    You know the more I think about it the less players I think will leave 😉

    …cause we sure as hell are not buying anyone (well maybe one or two according to Charnley)

    Elliot, Dummett, S Taylor, R Taylor, Williamson, Mbiwa, Haidara, Tiote, Anita, Sissoko, Gouffran, Gosling, Bigirimana, Obertan, Sa Ameobi, Sh Ameobi, Cisse.

    These are the players I think most likely to be deemed first team squad players with a future at the beginning of pre-season. Add to that Abeid and Jonas (for the appearance of numbers early-on), and the “golden generation” of Newton, Good, Armstrong, and Campbell.
    Add a couple of loanees and up to £15 million in signings (though I think we’ll show another healthy profit on transfers.)
    This will be presented as Pardew “doing a Martinez” and unloading expensive flops, replacing them with cheaper players who buy into his “vision.”
    We will then storm up the league into fifth place playing an exciting brand of attacking football and I will join the stampede to renew season tickets all-round for me and my grateful family.

    i prefer them leave and don’t hold place in squad/bench for guys like aarons or good. let’s be honest, even if we don’t but anyone special, we will be struggling in avoiding relegation battle with obertan or amalfitano in line-up…

    of course, that would be good to keep ben arfa, krul, sissoko, mbiwa or santon – however, we need proper manager who can use these guys on the pitch and drag best of their skills and form for NUFC…

    hard to see it happen, however i’m fan… so, deep in my soul i believe…

    As long as Teflon Pardew goes as well, the clown hasn’t gave the players on the bench a chance to prove themselves. The man is a poor excuse for a manager.

    strolla is going nowhere cos he’s been here so long he’s part of the furniture and because he’s hopeless, fits in well with way we play under our current hopeless manager.
    Hope Gosling stays because he’s never had a decent chance until now and he isn’t a bad player actually.
    One thing is for sure, we will NOT sign more than 3 players so do you REALLY think we will get rid of 14 players?!!? Bad joke Ed.

    The wheels came off when Cabaye was sold and not replaced, any other half well run club knows you can’t do that without consequences, only greedy Mash is capable.

    I honestly think Mashley gets a kick out of being a c##t.

    Without very good investment in our squad and a shake up within the club, next season will be our last in the premier league.
    Perhaps it would be for the best if we went down may teach Mash a lesson.

    Interesting thing about Saturday was that pards clearly didn’t want to play HBA and gave into fan / press demands by putting both HBA and Arma on – sadly for him he forgot their actual positions and told Arma to play RW whilst telling HBA just win us the game or your sacked
    Unfortunately HBA got injured after about 2 mins

    I’m not saying what I hope will happen. I am saying what I think will happen. I expect Gosling to be a regular next season. He fits the bill for Pardew, who has already saved his career with us. Many of the others have their future as top flight players tied up in Pardew’s survival. It is no wonder they are loyal. I think Ben Arfa, Debuchy and Coloccini are certain to go. And we will accept bids for Cisse and Krul (who is probably our most saleable player).
    All of these players have been targeted by the fans, the manager, or both, at some stage of the season. The only other caveat is that I think a £15 million spend is on the hopeful side. I think they will argue that it is a transitional season and set another lower finishing target, which Ashley will consider us well-equipped for. Pardew would be sure that he could achieve that with these players.

    Abeid is our future and is a direct replacement for Cabaye. I still think that we need to sign Cabella, Grenier and Adam Johnson. We also need to sign Alderweireld, a big centre half and 3/4 strikers.

    @Mister Tuff

    At least someone recognised what I posted and replied about the subject.

    I am shocked that a no-body GK is having talks about Ben Arfa in that manner, and sucking up to Pardew. Well he should because without Pardew he would be nowhere near NUFC yet enough not even the 1st team!

    But due to Pardew’s stupid connections and believing he is a good enough backup keeper for us, he is here, so he is doing his best off to suck him off so he doesnt get dropped in future or something.

    Then he carries on to talk about us fans like that, like he knows what being a NUFC fan is like, and having the black & white blood run straight through our vains.

    The stupid and most despicable comments about Keegan and supposedly saying Ben Arfa is at fault for the games we lose.

    Get this mug out along with Pardew, I hope he rots in the reserves or we cancel his contract.

    Mind you, hes doing his best for being a puppet of a puppet master. He is trying to big up Pardew so he gets the number 1 spot when Krul leaves to Italy.

    Well It looks like actually that Pardew has promised him a number 1 spot when he leaves.

    God I hope this stupid cockney scum gets sacked and we cancel this waste of a deluded c u nt with him!!

    The outlook for the supporters of the Toon is grim. Thanks to the actions of Pardew, the reputation of the club around the world is in the toilet and alongside the action of Mike Ashley who sells our best player(s) without a replacement, refuses to invest in a quality squad, refuses to communicate to the supporters and alienates the local press by banning them. As far as I’m concerned our beloved club will struggle under the current owner and manager and I cannot see any self respecting quality manager as well as any decent quality players wanting to come to the club.

    Turkish,

    Your post doesn’t surprise me in the least. Tales have been told outside the dressing room for weeks now. Some of them by Pardew. They mainly revolve around players having a go at Hatem Ben Arfa. I don’t think it would take a genius to work out who these players might be. I certainly wasn’t surprised to find Rob Elliot among their number.

    That conversation with Elliott !!!!! The Mag.

    If this is accurate what chance have we got. We all knew to be honest but that just puts the icing on the cake.

    Oh Sir Bobby….. What has happened to your club.

    Really need to think hard about my love of going to the games.

  • I am also of the belief that should Pardew stay, and be given more of a transfer license, we will emulate the old Stoke side.

    I can envisage plenty of endeavour and hard work, but ultimately no flair or speed. That for any Newcastle fan would be a nightmare. We’ve seen for 3 years now that Pardew struggles with flair players and our chance creation has been down to 3 players this season in Cabaye, Sissoko and Remy. To entrust the way we play and perform to just 3 players is criminal and poor management, especially when one has left and the other is about to.

    Unfortunately for him, Pardew seems to have split the dressing room and is rapidly losing the fans. He’s already lost the media. He’s also proved that without his best 11, he cannot perform. Which at Newcastle United, is just unsustainable considering our injury record and lack of transfers.

    I don’t particularly want to see Pardew go, however I feel he has to at this stage. Too much damage has been done at this point and the seeds of mistrust and apathy have been sewn. When it gets to the point that no fan believes a word you say, regardless of whether or not it is honest or true, you’re a dead man walking.

    I would have thought it in Ashley’s interest to remove Pardew in order to relieve the bubbling pressure on the club as a whole. That way he can at least portray an illusion that the club is in a new era/fresh start etc and buy himself some time. The club must realise that should this acidic situation continue and be allowed to get out of hand (media coverage is becoming more widespread/ fans seen on international tv calling for Pardew’s head etc) then it will undoubtedly have an impact on the reputation of the club in the eyes of potential signings.

    If the club can not bring in the cheap imports any more and we have a window like the last couple, then Ashley is facing a serious dilemma. Does he pay the going rate for players who are known quantities and can keep us at least where we are? and will they want to come? Or does he bring in what he can for as little as he can, most likely them not being good enough, and risk another serious relegation battle and yet more conflict and pressure from fans?

    It is imperative the correct choice has to be made here. In my eyes I can’t see going any other way than Pardew being pushed. The situation could become too volatile and the relationship with fans and local media irreparable.

    Unfortunately for Pardew

    Interesting comments from Elliott – just goes to show he knows his level and is happy to pick up his wages hanging round mid table – if a player has no ambition to better himself and at least try to get an international cap we should get rid
    A manager and owner with no ambition is one thing, if the players themselves expect to be beaten by anyone in top half and happy just beating the odd team here and there we are doomed

    It will be the exact same senario as last season. Summer window with more outgoings than incomings and then if, and only if, we are struggling around crimbo time, panic buy some cheap french lads to hopefully drag us back from oblivion.

    All this without cabs and a 20+ goal a season striker

    It is called indoctrination; it is the idea that a person or a group of people are expected not to question or critically examine the doctrine they have learned – in this case from Pardew and the doctrine is that Benny is to blame for the mess we are in.

    Greetings to all my mates out there. Welcome to Blog End, home of your very own Official Blog Hobbit. What is on tap for today you ask? Well all sorts I would say. So put your hairy feet up and join in everyone. We have much to discuss. How to punish various members of the Newcastle United management? Is there a better name for our beloved owner than Mike NoNuts? How bad is Pardew as a manager? Are any of the coaches worth keeping? Has a cure for nutticus shrivelous been developed yet? All this and more. Please stay tuned. 😆

    Simple as this….We need to rebuild from scratch more or less. We have two or three players worth keeping(Krul, Debuchy, Sissoko), plus maybe a handful for squad filling(Gosling, Anita[who is being played well out of position, he is a deep midfielder], Abeid[who I think could be a handy midfielder], Williamson.

    Barring that, I wouldn’t be unhappy to see any of the others leave at all. Obviously Benny is capable of the impossible, but only when he can be bothered, and when he can’t be, he is useless. Mbiwa shows glimpses of a good defender, but lapses far too often for my liking.

    But, who is going to buy our squad of flops? Clubs just promoted maybe looking, or a move abroad to a average league team. Jonas won’t fetch £3.5m, Cisse should have been sold in January, as that was the best price we will get for him.

    How much do you think we are going to make in player sales? Next to f*** all.

    I hope(not expect) we do actually do something this summer, because otherwise we will be joining our neighbours in the Championship the season after…
