Top Newcastle Midfielder Could Leave This Summer – Video


There’s news in the Chronicle today that Cheick Tiote may leave Newcastle before the end of this transfer window.

Cheick Tiote wednesday-3

Cheick Tiote – in action in pre-season

For the last couple of years there has never been any talk about Cheick leaving Newcastle, although after he first arrived in the summer of 2010, Chelsea were interested in taking the player, but nothing materialized.

The local report suggests that Cheick’s representatives are looking for offers for their client in the last three weeks of the transfer window – so maybe they are looking for a pay-day for themselves?

Cheick has not played much at all in pre-season, and he has a hamstring injury and is not expected to be fit for our first league game of the season against Manchester City next Sunday afternoon.

Apparently Lokomotiv Moscow and one other Russian Premier League club are interested in Tiote, and clubs in Germany and Spain could also be interested.

It seems from the report that Tiote’s representatives are the ones pushing for a move, but Mike Ashley would want to a decent price for the defensive midfielder – who has been an excellent buy for Newcastle since we got him from FC Twente four years ago for around £3.5M.

But if a decent offer comes in before the end of the transfer window, we wouldn’t put it past the owner to sell him late, and not be able to replace him – and Mike’s done that twice at Newcastle in the January transfer windows with Andy Carroll, and more recently with Yohan Cabaye.

Both sales had a negative impact on Newcastle’s season each time.

If Cheick leaves it would be a blow to the squad, and we’re sure if he is sold it would not be good news for Alan Pardew, and we’d be very surprised if Cheick Tiote is sold this summer.

Cheick has played 119 times for Newcastle with one memorable goal – which was the equalizer with one minute left in the home game against Arsenal in February of 2011.

That’s when Newcastle became the only team in the Premier League ever to come back from a four goal deficit – we were 4-0 down after 65 minutes – and we finished up at 4-4.

Only at Newcastle – only at St. James’ Park. 😀

Take a look at that equalizer – no – the commentator did not have a heart attack.

    Top class attitude and professionalism from Tiote, but I would like to us with players that dominate possession, not dominate out of possession.

    I would like to see Abeid coming into the first team, the guy looks like a class act.

    Sorry Ed, we already debated that before you he he.

    Repost simply to annoy-

    Belfast – ha the old place is looking kinda tired now, OV needs a lick of Pardew’s Plastic Covers -All-Cracks paint. Apply many coats with a wide brush. Leave to dry in 5 years. Lasts for many seasons.

    With us starting to look more at Dutch players I’m surprised we’ve not been linked with Jeffrey Gouweleeuw, he’d be a decent signing and a nice upgrade on Taylor/Wilo.

    Wonder how much West Ham offered for Wickham

    This is a muckraking story concocted by the Chronicle because they are annoyed that they no longer have access to the club. Expect more made up stories.

    Don’t see it, but if he does go then we should get Leroy Fer from Norwich .

    Shame about Tiote. At his best he is a destroyer. (Providing there is any truth to the story). On the plus side it frees up a squad place for someone like grenier. Socks, anita, colback covering the cm spots, backed up by the likes of abied and biggi. Cabella Sdj and Grenier behind a striker would be something special

    Our squad is young and relatively inexperienced for the Premier League, we need to ensure we keep the experienced players such as Tiote.
    We should keep him. This may be a ploy by his agent to secure a new contract.

    Also If I was a Mackem I would be worried .

    They stayed up by the skin of their teeth last year and have lost Ki, Borini, Colback and maybe Wickham and brought virtually no one in ecept for players like Billie Jones, Van Ahnholt and took a gamble on Rodwell .

    I would be very worried .

    There is no way we will get Lacazatte or Grenier next season.for one their price will soar,and second,Biggerfishes already monitoring their progress.But will expect our move at the last minute of this window,especially if Ben arfa leaves.For us,this is thebest time to grab either of them if they are still our targets.on Tiote,we can’t lose him now,unless big offer comes on the table.he is one of very important players for us in the new season. but very unlikely that he’ll leave. he struggled with injuries in the last two yrs or so.hope will find his form this time..
    .possible replacements:
    jonjo shelvey
    Guieda fofana
    jordie clasie
    Georgio wijnaldum

    I would take 8-10 million for him. We need somebody who retains possesion these days. Can put a performance in but how consistant is he?.. Don’t get me wrong I love tiote and his passion but we need somebody different and we are stocked in cm.

    Bored rigid mate.

    I like Thin Lizzy.

    The lyrics to black rose are some of favourite in rock.

    The play out after the instrumental when Lynott sings about famous Irish folk always makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck… it’s incredible.

    Pretty sure i’ve got no Irish in me, but if i do, i’m not keen on having “a little more Irish in” me.

    Lets hope you’s get that last bit.

    Tiote’s role (not himself) is important to the squad. If he’s healthy, he could break down a lot of attacks right at the midfield area. I can’t see Anita and Colback could do this yet, and our current squad does not seem carrying that function. We need to get someone in to fill that spot.

    But to be fair, let’s see if Colback could do it later.

    Yeah that last bit is a common joke often used thusly….

    “How, pet, have you got any Geordie in you?”

    “No”

    “Would you like some?”

    Am i correct?

    Doubtless Sid the sexist said it.

    Lynott used to use it when playing live too.

    He used to say:
    “Has anyone got any Irish in them….”
    *Wait for a cheer*
    “Would any of the girls like a little more Irish in them…”
    *Then blast into the song*

    On the Live and Dangerous LP he says it before Black Rose.

    I think Colback will be the one to take on the DM mantle, if tiote goes. Sissoko along side him to provide the power. Anita is a decent back up to them. I would rather keep hold of tiote though. In top form he is the best DM we have

    Lynott another rock legend taken too soon. Excesses of the lifestyle unfortunately. T.L. obviously did some classics, but collaborations woth Gary Moore were good too. Metallica do a good version of whiskey in the jar but its not as good as T.Ls

    Lynott was a nutcase. Total obsessive personality.

    He’s get addicted to anything, like eating nothing but smokey bacon crisps for 6 months.

    Aye, it was the heroin that killed him. During his autopsy his foot was completely blackened and dead – a result of injecting between his toes for 10 years or so.

    A legend of rock music. A brilliant, talented man.

    Can’t say im a fan of the late 70s collaborations with Moore though. Bit cheesy for my liking.

    Is anyone from here going to the Hatem meet and greet tomorrow night? I’d have gone but it’s too short notice.

    I bet there’s a few interesting stories to come from there and the club aren’t too pleased with it. Good.
