Santon Move To Inter To Be Made Permanent In The Summer


Davide Santon’s move to Inter Milan will be made permanent in the summer, since it seems that Inter Milan wanted him to prove his fitness before they committed to making the move permanent.

Newcastle United v West Ham United

Davide Santon while at Newcastle for three and a half years

Since joining his former club on the last day of the January transfer window Davide has played regularly for the club and put in 10 appearances and he seems to have proved his fitness to those at Inter-Milan.

There are reports coming out of Italy that Davide has now reached the number of games it was agreed to between the clubs when the move would be made permanent.

Davide  played 94 times with one goal for Newcastle, and the deal at Inter will presumably now become official on July 1st – when the summer transfer window opens, and that explains why no move to bring him back from his loan at Inter was made by Lee Charnley.

Newcastle could have done with Davide playing for Newcastle through the end of the season, given the injuries we have had to both Paul Dummett and Massadio Haidara.

    The sales of Mbiwa and Santon now means the club is in the minus spend, since being promoted from the Premier League.

    So, since our promotion to the Premier League, the club is around -6 million pounds on spent on transfers.

    Quite ridiculous, when you consider we play in the richest league in the world.

    Watched Inter play Wolfsburg last week, they were a poor team and Santon did not stand out. Up to his usual out of position, letting players get past him and cutting inside to be blocked off.

    Felt sorry for Colback and Sissoko yesterday, they were out numbered and had no chance yesterday. What an awful formation and tactics by Carver. He’s taken away our main link between midfield and attack and dropped him into a more defensive role….Sissoko needs to be higher up the pitch.

    Krul was at fault for the 1st goal no doubt about it bit where were our 2 CM’S. Sissoko was out of position, pushed wider and would you believe it that Colback was pressing the ball which meant he ended up behind Riviere…..leaving a massive gap in midfield for Mccarthy to do what he wanted.

    Some things that made me chuckle yesterday, Obertan when injured was being hailed as a big miss by many on here, glad to see some coming to there senses and realising this guy is nothing other than shite. Raylor who again some were beating the drum for to be included showed exactly why he shouldn’t be anywhere near the 1st team and Riviere aka the french Heskey who has all the attributes most blast cisse for not having yet can’t score a goal.

    This might not go down well with fellow fans but I’d take Poyet in heartbeat, yes things didn’t workout at Sunderland but that squad of players he has shouldn’t even be in the prem, they are that bad and still reeling from Di Canio’s time there

    I’ve seen Santon play for inter 3 times, twice as a RB and once as LB, a right footed player playing on the left will always cut inside onto his natural foot….that’s what Phillip Lahm said as he started out as a LB who was right footed. It’s only natural mate, however the 2 games I’ve seen him play at RB he’s been outstanding, very good crosses, drilled in low and picking out his man more often than not aerially!! Football went through a stupid spell of playing left footers on the right and vice versa defensively but now it’s reverting back to how it should be. I’d take half of Santon over Raylor any day of the week

    I can’t see Poyet becoming manager, he’s far to outspoken, not a controllable character like the other weak incumbents we’ve previously had.

    Our Toon #19…I disagree on that on. A modern fullback is usually played so hr will cut inside…it’s not changing where they still practice the modern version of the game.

    We didn’t really understand that so it made no sense playing Santon on the left.

    Nova @ 7.

    The net spend on transfers was £1.25, from promotion until the end of the past summer transfer window. I didn’t take Pardew into account.

    If you add up the fees for Mbiwa, Santon and the fee for Pardew, I would guess it would be close to £10 million. The fee for Cabella is probably overstated too.

    I would say the club is easily in the -£10 million bracket for transfer fees since promotion.

    I remember proper fullbacks
    Dolly Barton and Bimbo Beresford
    Heart attack every week
    Prince Albert defending on his own sometimes cos Venison had gone a.w.o.l. as well
    But any defender that lobs Schmeichel has my undying love
    What times they were ( sigh)

    Setting aside Carver’s incompetence, didn’t we lose yesterday’s match through Cissé’s stupidity? If he’d played we probably would have won.

    I don’t rate Colback or Sissoko in CM. Both are severely lacking in ability and any intelligence to play there. Both are poor passers and can’t hold onto or win the ball.

    I’m not a fan of Tiote but he’s better in that position than either of those 2, I’d prefer to see Anita and or Abeid in there.

    The starting 11 yesterday showed just how far out of his depth Carver is.

    Cabella who’s made the most chances is on the bench along with our highest available goal scorer Perez, along with that Anita and Abeid are made scapegoats yet Colback and Sissoko who’ve been pants since Jan are critisism free.

    The whole club is rotten, Ashley Charnley Carver and Collocini are the yellow disease ridden spine of NUFC and it’s infecting everything and everybody around them.

    Oh yes and I forgot a special mention to the Captain.

    The most over rated player at NUFC by a country mile, who’s head I’d say was up his arse but more like up some lasses arse. The man has ZERO Intrest in the club, he couldn’t care less and the fact he is the Captain speaks volumes about this club.

    He’s a accident waiting to happen, this isn’t the first time and it won’t be the last.

    A complete joke!

    You must be the only person North of the black stump that thinks Tiote is a good passer of the ball

    To be fair to JC, he is in a classic middle-manager’s bind.

    His immediate boss has had enough and walks. He’s offered the job

    It’s not like he’s working for the council and can say: “I’ll just keep me head down til pension time if you don’t mind.”

    If he doesn’t take it on, he’s out. He’s having a lash at it.

    I doubt if Charnley is watching anyone’s back but his own. And HIS boss will be saying “are you saying you can’t manage? Because if you can’t….”

    A lot of people must recognise this from their own experience. The “person in charge” is often just piggy-in-the-middle.

    I don’t blame cisse, I’d hazard a guess that 95% of the population would react to being spat on or at, Cisse is no different to you or I, I would have reacted in the situation so can’t expect anything different from another person. Plus we aren’t a 1 man team, it’s a team game and playing 2 CM’s against a team that retains a lot of possession is just stupidity!!

    What’s clear is Carver is definitely out of his depth. But we have a very limited squad which have clearly decided to take their holidays early.
    Our team just isn’t good enough along with the training.
    Everything is run on MA tight budget and we’ll always struggle, we would have gone down last season if we hadn’t had Remy, luckily Cisse found his a abilities this.
    I don’t know where our goals will come from now.

    OP

    We are currently playing without anyone protecting the back 4. Cast your mind back to Arsenal when alot of people said that they have a soft centre, no ball winners or players that like to do the dirty work. They changed that by bringing in Coquilian (apologies for spelling error). A ball winner is a massive game changer, both Colback and Sissoko aren’t that and tbf to Abeid he isn’t either.

    Abeid said that he’s being asked to play a defensive role this year and last year he was playing behind the striker in a more attacking role. For me I’d like to see him in the box to box role rather than sitting deep

    Well in all the excitement of our most recent tremendous performance many may not have noticed that Gus Poyet has been sacked. Just think of them lot with a new manager and lots of incentive to beat us. Johnny C. must be anxious to get at them. Patience Johnny C. we have to give the gunners a good lashing first! Huzzah!!!

    I don’t know who he is Jeff, so you could have a point.

    I think he probably means “Ayoze is going nowhere unless there’s a hefty cut in it for me.”

    Which is still talking his man up in the media, as you were complaining of vehemently within the last 48 years.
