Player Would Be Instant Hit And Leader At Newcastle

Olivier Bernard played at lefty back over 100 times during the Bobby Robson era at Newcastle and now he is the owner of Durham City and he still follows French football closely.

Andre Ayew – Marseilles winger/striker

So when Olivier was interviewed in the Chronicle yesterday has talked about the rumors coming out of France about Newcastle being in the lead to sign 25 year-old Andre Ayew, the Marseilles winger/striker, who will become a free agent in the summer.

He also has some leadership skills, and we are certainly missing players with that currently, in the Newcastle dressing room.

This is what Bernard said yesterday:

“After Fabricio Coloccini was sent off at Everton, Newcastle looked lost. There’s not many players with the authority and influence to stand up and be counted at Newcastle, so they need them in the summer,”

“Ayew is one of those kind of players. He could walk into the club and take the armband with no worries whatsoever. He is a powerful player and I’m delighted that Newcastle are looking at it him as a potential summer signing – bringing him in would be the right sort of move.”

“I do think Ayew would be an instant hit in England. He can score goals, he’s powerful and he also has the kind of physicality that would mean it wouldn’t take him too long to adapt.”

“He’s one of the better players in France and if he’s available, Newcastle should really work hard to try and bring him in,”

This season Andre has scored  7 goals and 4 assists in his 21 total appearances, and while at Marseilles over the last five years or so he’s made 198 total appearances with 56 goals and 23 assists.

Newcastle have been after the player for over two years now, and as a free agent he would make an excellent signing for Newcastle – we hope we can get him.

What do you think?

    Sorry but we looked lost while he was still on the pitch he’s THAT much of a brilliant captain. No desire, no communication and certainly doesn’t show the leadership qualities for the role.

    A day in the life of toonbrother.

    Colo out lol.

    I’m feeling very optimistic about the Arsenal game, I can’t see them scoring more than 7 or 8 against us, the defiantly do not have what it takes to get into double figures.

    But don’t worry lads and lasses because John say they don’t need any motivation for this game.

    And after he will look at putting for right for the derby game, half a dozen players will be rolled out to tell us so.

    Wonder who will be sent off this time?

    Spot on mate. You’re right it won’t be a cricket score. I’m confident the team will keep the score in single figures. Something we can all be proud of which matches our aspirations of a Top Ten finish and no silverware which can be a distraction when the team have to concentrate on where to take the Wags for their Summer Holidays. With faithfull supporters to line his pockets, Mike Ashley will get over his kicking from the Rangers mob and realise what a Money Tree we all are and all he has to do is keep us well fed with bullshit !

    What if a ayews absolute shite like cabella ? Both similarly come from the French league with a bit of a reputation, cabella weaker than a 12 year old totally can’t adapt to English football why should ayew be any different

    Bernard also said that Riviere would be amazing at the club, something to the effect of “The next Thierry Henry.”
