Ben Arfa Will Never Return To Newcastle


There’s a report in the Sun today that Hatem Ben Arfa could return to Newcastle United before the end of the season, if Alan Pardew is fired from his job, but according to the Hull City manager – that will not happen.

Hatem Ben Arfa – in Hull’s colors on Monday night

The Sun is reporting there is a clause in the loan deal that says Ben Arfa could return to Newcastle in January – but given the status of things when the loan deal was made – why would Alan Pardew ever have that clause put in the loan deal?

On that same afternoon, he had just told the French winger earlier in the day, that he would never play him in the Newcastle first team again.

And Geordie Steve Bruce has said today there is no recall clause for Ben Arfa, who will be at the game tomorrow, but he will be in the stands and not on the bench.

This is what Bruce said about Ben Arfa:

“Let me put this straight,” “Apparently, what I’m hearing is he’s sitting on the bench next to me.”“He’s going to sit in the seat that Newcastle give him.¨

¨If they want to sit him on top of the stand, that’s where they can put him.¨  “I’ve heard all the other nonsense as well, but it’s a normal loan deal like everyone else has got, no breaks, nothing at all.”

And since Ben Arfa’s contract at Newcastle runs out at the end of next June, its hard to see how he would ever come back to Newcastle.

In addition to seeing banners and getting chants of Pardew Out tomorrow afternoon – we suppose we will also hear Ben Arfa’s name chanted from the terraces.

No wonder Steve Bruce is calling on his players to take advantage of the poisoned situation tomorrow afternoon, and win the game at St. James’ Park for the second season running.

It’s hard to see how Newcastle can take anything out of this game, with the atmosphere at St. James’ Park likely to be hostile.

But we’ve been wrong before – there’s the good news. 😀

    Talk sport absolutely ripping Pardew to shreds!

    The lad from sack Pardew was brilliant and the last caller got it spot on about collymore and other journos being absolutely clueless if they think the fans are kicking up based solely on 4 games

    However, one caller, Graeme, given your heed a f^*king shake man, the majority if fans still back the regime? F**k off they do!

    I think that Graham was actually Pardew putting on an accent, either that or he’s been living in a cave for the last three years and has no idea whats really happening

    Mag52,

    If he was so concerned about a Cb and Cf he wouldn’t have been harping on about how good our transfer business was. He’s stated on more than one occasion how happy he was with the business despite the rest of the world knowing the clear problems in our squad.

    He has more than once mentioned finances of our club, using them even as an excuse to dampen expectations for our transfer business.

    I believe he is more concerned about doing as he’s told more so than doing what is best in the role he has luckily had for the past 4 years.

    His boss is more concerned about the profitability of the club therefore so is he.

    So in summary yes.

    Anyone who still thinks he wants what is best for our club needs to ask themselves why he is still here. A man of principle with genuine love for the club would have walked. Our manager is not and does not.

    It was frightening to listen to the lad, how out of touch can one person actually be???

    The lad from SackPardew.com spoke really well and laid out the core fault with the manager and the club perfectly

    @toonarmydownsouth: Depends on the definition of ‘back’ in this instance. If they mean season tickets, shirt sales, ticket sales etc. then he’s absolutely right. There’s also a surprising amount of fans who are just happy to be along for the ride and don’t often voice their decent, whether that’s a representative group is a different matter.

    Gutted I missed the sack pardew lad. I’m glad he’s able to coherently speak. I was worried he’d be one of those blokes outside shearers on a Wednesday morning in his 95/96 toon with his primark bag and a can of special brew

    Repost

    I would rathervwe played this team just because all the players that played last weekend should be dropped: 4-3-1-2.
    Elliot
    Janmaat-Satka-taylor(s)-haidara
    Abied-tiote-colback
    Cabella
    Gouffran-perez
    Subs:
    Riviere
    Sissoko
    Ferreyra
    Dummet
    Krul
    Colo
    anita
    I know this team is terrible, but were gonna lose the game anyway. As others have suggested… This game is all about the protest. The only reason i have put abeid, satka and perez in the line up is because they will want to prove themselves.

    Pardew has said that a fan protest could put a win in jeopardy.

    By back he meant support, you could be right but just can’t see the majority being happy with the way things are

    That Graeme lad was on another planet. Says some of the fans are trouble making

    Dear me, standing up for the good of the club isn’t exactly trouble making is it?

    It is not allowing a proven, career long underachiever to drag is down any longer, simply for his salary.

    NUFCJackW – Surely you can’t leave Gouffran in your team!! Done literally nothing this season and struggled for form at the end of last season.
    Cabella has been equally as poor failing to take on a player. Fancy footwork then passes backwards.

    anyone who can organise something like sackpardew.com so well has to have something about them.

    We’ve been crying out for someone who could co-ordinate and pull something together for years. fair play to him. Does anyone actually know his name?

    A message from Captain Fantastic

    “We are football fans too, so we understand that things can get frustrating. But please, support the team for 90 minutes inside the stadium,” he said, in quotes carried by the Chronicle.

    “We need your support. We have a lot of new players and a young squad.

    “They need your backing, a push from you and a positive atmosphere to get the best out of them.

    “Hopefully, you can cheer us on to three points and that will give our season a real boost.”
    ———————————————————————-

    Someone’s been forced to tow the party line,

    Try doing your job fella as you are part of the problem

    I know what you mean mate. I put gouffran in just because he is a natural ST and has better BPL experience then Riviere. Cabella needs to get used to the prem, if he underperforms in the next game he should be dropped. 🙂

    Ferreyra is said to be very poor and cannot even make the reserve side – He was a recommendation of Colo by all accounts and everyone at the club is said to be amazed at how poor he is

    Quite shock about that article about ferreyra. His goal scoring record at Velez Sarsfield is good and 17 goals in 25 apps and at Shakhtar Donetsk he has 6 goals in 5 league starts. Also he have been appearing in Shakhtar Donetsk pre-season matches this year before signing for Newcastle. So i am quite shock that the article claim that he has lacked ability.

    Good luck with the protest tomorrow lads. I doubt it’ll get him sacked with a FCB at the helm, I honestly think they’re laughing at the fans whilst fat bloke reaps in the rewards. The whole EPL fans, players, managers will see the guys a fraud when he doesn’t resign. The majority of managers in that type of scenario would’ve walked by now, any manager with a bit of decency or self respect would’ve said ok it’s time to throw the towel in. Solskjaer was sacked from Cardiff and the boy from Fulham walked, whose record is/was on level par with our idiot of a manager. Not one for people issuing death threats but this idiot deserves everything he gets. He’ll never walk, who’s gonna employ a muppet like that, once he is gone (?) His career in football will surely be over.

    It came out last week that he’s been very poor so far, don’t know how accurate the story was as the press do have a habit of telling porkies, but it does go to address the fact that we haven’t seen him anywhere near either the first team squad or reserves
