Newcastle Reported After Danish International Striker


There was a report in the Sunday People yesterday that Newcastle are tracking former Cardiff City striker Andreas Cornelius, well to be more accurate Newcastle Chief Scout Graham Carr has been seen supposedly scouting the player in Denmark.

Andreas Cornelius

Andreas Cornelius – Newcastle interested?

In June of last year Cardiff City signed Cornelius for a club record fee of around £8M, so it seems they overpaid for the 7 times capped Danish International.

He was signed from FC Copenhagen by then-manager Malky Mackay, but he only played 11 times for the Bluebirds.

So he was hardly successful for the club who were relegated from the Premier League last season, and last January the south Wales club gave up on the player, and he was sold back to Copenhagen, and at the time it was said he was sold back to Copenhagen at a big loss to the Welsh club.

The fee was not disclosed but it was a lot less than £8M, and apparently he was also on £45K/week while at Cardiff City. 🙁

However, since then Cornelius has scored a decent eight goals in 17 appearances for the Copenhagen club, and he is at the top of the goal scoring charts in the Danish Super League.

But usually when Graham Carr is seen at games it’s never quite clear which player he is checking on,  and we’d be very surprised if Newcastle are interested in the 21 year-old 6’4″ striker, especially when he failed so badly at Cardiff last season.

If Newcastle are to bring in another striker in the next week, it will most likely be from the continent, but what Newcastle really need is an established goalscorer – and Andreas Cornelius is not that.

In his career at Copenhagen, he has played 69 games with 29 goals and 6 assists, and has been capped 7 times with one goal for Denmark.

He also played for the Danish Youth sides at U18, U19 and U21 level.

    Alreet chaps, no news again’?

    I’ll give you some more no news.

    As I said last night JC was in the bar last night with all the groundsmen etc.

    Had a bit crack with a few of them asking if they’d heard out. None of them had any clue if we where even trying to sign anyone.

    They’d did however say Pardew had gone back to SJP after a drink and they beleived Ashley was still there too.

    8oclock on a Sunday night at work?

    Like I said no news

    Don’t know about Ashley they just reckoned he was still about, I saw Pardew leaving around 6 give or take.

    And they said he was off back to the ground and they reckoned Ashley was still there.

    Maybe Pardew went to wave him off 😉

    I know this is non-newcastle related but i am RAISING FUNDS for the MNDA as I am doing the Great North Run in just over a week. I have been struggling to raise funds and would MASSIVELY appreciate anyone donating to help me reach my target of £200.

    The ALS ICE WATER BUCKET challenge has been in the spotlight lately, but MNDA is the same thing but just in our country.

    I have been greatly affected by it as my Auntie has been diagnosed with the disease and I want to do what I can to help raise funds for the charity.

    PLEASE donate if you can, here is my Just Giving page, any donation no matter how big or small will massively help, thank you.

    i’m still impressed with chucky tbh who isnt getting a game then theres cisse and perez to add to river i dont think arma/campbell are ready tbh and siem/cabella will add goals without a doubt along with sissoko’s/goofys.

    if we play with 1 striker though like he has been who will it be ??? chucky/river/cisse or perez ? personally i think chucky is the best suited.

    That should be a star player can’t think of anyone who’s indispencible or really important to the team.

    Will be happy with a top 10 finish as long as we win a cup..we should be in with a chance of winning the capital one cup as teams like Chelsea man city etc normally play their 2nd string side..pardew is sending out a pretty strong squad for the Gillingham game so that’s a good sign..we got at least 15-18 good players in our side for the first time in a long time so hopefully that means a deeper run into the cup competition

    Whilst there seems a lot of love for HBA amongst the fans its pretty damning that no other clubs have bid for him despite the fact we are allegedly listening to listen to any offers and he’s on around 40k a week.

    He’s very hard to fit into a team structure and not consistent enough to be given a free role – his odd bits of magic look fantastic for the fans and youtube clips but I can understand how other players dislike playing with him ( Cabaye, Tiote etc). Shame though.

    The fallout with Pards is not about his role on the pitch but the fact he argued with Pards about his tactics, team selections, turning up late and (allegedly) overweight – Hence Pards saying he needs to be more professional

    Once a player says he’s not moving because the manager will likely be sacked in the first couple of months the writing is on the wall for the player

    HBA was never going too strive in Pards tactics. Ba,HBA moaning over negative tactics and Debs mentioned it when signing for Arsenal.

    Flair players will always be in and out of games even Ronaldo and Messi do. Trying to get HBA to defend is pointless let the 2 dm and 4 defenders do that ffs. When he blew onto the scene with CH he just attacked and was out of this world, Pards come in and fcuked him big time.

    Will never understand the hate HBA gets with the shite tactics installed into the team he only tries to do what we all want attack, but lets play Gouffy (French Jonas) he tracks back well, useless with the ball and crossing but in Pards we trust! Like Fcuk

    It would be nice to see.

    Ellis Short has gave Ashley the opportunity to gain a bit of respect from fans etc, a sorta olive branch.

    It’s canny the two clubs have a nice dialogue going on at the minute, much better than your scum etc.

    We can still be rivals but we should realise that we are the only teams who want each other in the prem, the rest would be happy not to have to travel here.

    Nice gesture from Short IMO

    It is amazing how positive the spin is coming out of the club.

    You would not think we had 5 wins in the last 23 games, with 2 of those wins coming via injury time goals.

    You would not think we were carrying that form on, with the loss of Remy, whose goals had been the difference between surviving and relegation.

    Or, that we have a defence that should be getting better season on season with more games under its belt, but never seems to improve.

    Goodness, anyone would almost think we were capable of things, like taking a corner or free kicks… with the positive spin coming out.

    Let’s not talk about any of that… lets concentrate on the team still not getting wins, but not looking totally hopeless. Being beaten by Man City in 2nd gear, and being unable to break Villa down, is seen as such a large improvement, that Pardew is positively glowing.

    Would rather play with ten defenders than have this useless oaf in the side I’d take that Bas Dost though. He looks like he’d give us a few options, size, strength, goals, someone who could flick the balls on for cabella, gouffy and de Jong as well.

    Colwell, Gouffran looked great when we first signed him. Lightning fast and wanted to use his skill to go at players… Now look at him, frumping around like a baggage handler waiting for his shift to end… that is no doubt what Pardew wanted for Ben Arfa.

    Agreed on Gouffs, he looks lost now, his confidence has gone and no doubt why he keeps doing air shots.

    No doubt about it Pards has tried to do the same thing to HBA but he has balls and has stood up to the arrogant tw@, fair play him to him.

    It looks like we have been trying to play with a false 9 in the 2 previous games, when I watch the top sides their wingers get space on the touchline to widen the pitch and go from there. For a team that is playing with 3 AM’s behind a striker our width is shockingly bad, however we need a target man to compliment the creativity in the side and give a presence in the box, Rivi can do this but needs the team to push up, ergo the real problem, no pace in the centre back positions meaning we sit back too deep leaving too much space and not allowing us to maintain pressure in the oppositions half, added to the lack of movement off the ball… Colback seems to be the only player who shows for the ball like Cabaye did.

    All this needing another AM to open up teams is Blarney, we have an abundance of versatile attacking talent to fill this gap if SDJ gets injured but he is the man to take us forward as he is one of the few players we have that plays the game in his head and can see things others can’t!

    mindset—– regarding benni, your right – he has to go, but not for the reasons you make .Bennie has to go to save his carreer. Bennie is brilliant thereis no doubt about that, he deserves a better team – a better manager, a manager who knows talent when he sees it, a manager with a bit of vision who could play him where he can cause havoc in an attack minded team – we are not that team and pards is not that manager. Dont ask benni to defend , he cant, so why do it, we know that – bennie knows that-probably every player in the team knows that – the only person who dosnt know that is the guy who has been manager for 4 years and still has got no idea how to build a team to attack the opposition and let them worry about us. So we have a talented player , a crowd pleaser, a player in the right team would destroy – yes destroy most defences in the country, a player who mfor my money could score goals as good as any peter beardsley goal ( and that is a big compliment ) and we are getting rid coz he CANT DEFEND?????? Are you sure????? something not right in that sentence eh ??

    Stuart.

    You mean like blanc, who hates him?

    Or Deschamps, who also hates him?

    The issue is not the team, it is not the manager, it is Ben Arfa. Imagine if you were asked to do something by your boss, would you tell him to fcuk off in front of your colleagues? Especially if the issue is not too unreasonable? If Ben Arfa is being so unfairly treated why doesn’t he walk and take the club to court for constructive dismissal?

    People need to take off their rose tinted spectacles and realise that we as a team are better off without Ben Arfa, as good as he may be every one in ten matches. He’s not worth the hassle.
