This Player Can Still Do A Job At Newcastle


Cheick Tiote is back on Tyneside – but because of all his travel and being away from Newcastle trying to fix up a deal in China he’s unlikely to be in the squad for tonight’s game at Everton.

And it could be that he still leaves Newcastle this month since the transfer window in China doesn’t close until the end of  February.

Cheick Tiote – in action at Arsenal

But if he does stay than we think Cheick can do a job for us although we expect new boy Henri Saivet to start for the team – given he can quickly acclimatize to the Premier League.

This is what McClaren told the Chronicle about the 29 year-old:

“He’s only been back in the last few days. Things fell through and have not worked out. He was good in training and smiling again.”

“We gave him an opportunity to move. That would have been very advantageous for him. It’s not worked out and he knows that, he now knows he has to come back here and play football.”

“When he plays football he’s very good.”

“I wouldn’t have thought so. He’s been here, there and everywhere trying to do a deal but it fell through.”

“It’s another one we have to get back up to speed.” With the transfer window in China still open until the end of the month Tiote could still leave United if his agent can resurrect the deal.”

Cheick has a terrific game at the Emirates and was our man of the Match so perhaps McClaren can get the best out of him – and if nothing else he makes the strong stronger and we are still worried about injuries.

Especially to goalkeeper Rob  Elliot.

🙁 🙁 🙁

And there are some fans who think Papiss Cisse and Cheick are the bad eggs in the dressing room after that article from John Richardson of the Express came out last September, but Steve McClaren was quick to say that was not true.

If it is true then that wouldn’t be good.

But Cheick, if he stays this season, will be trying to get a new deal somewhere – so he will be motivated to do well for Newcastle.

Those enormous wages we are paying him hopefully will also be a motivational factor.

🙂

    I have been told by both Swansea and Liverpool fans that Shelvey is only good for about an hour.
    If that’s true then it could work in well with Siem de Jong cos he’s only good for about 30 minutes 😀

    After the board has stumped up (as it promised) and brought in 4 players in January, there is still the manager and chairman who remain to be dealt with. As we are running out of time, I would suggest that no more than three games be given to win at least two of the three games and if no luck replace them before we are relegated.

    Jeff…you are only good for about a minute!

    Was that the best answer you could give earlier to a simple question? I think everyone are very anxious to know! Senor Tuff had an explanation, but I think you should have the opportunity to answer for yourself! So what is it?

    Great news about Doumbia – was having doubts about his work permit -but he got it sorted.

    Wally said the problem is scoring. Both Townsend and Doumbia say they are fit and ready to go – so my guess is straight into the team.
    Doumbia CF – don’t think he’ll start with Mitro but
    Perez and Gini.

    Will be keeping an eye on Townsend -whether he can take people on his left on the left wing.
    Will he be cutting inside. Will he be sticking to the line. Any row z shots.
    Might even see a chase on 1 to 1 with Doumbia -after a decent through ball.

    Here’s hoping Wally has come up with a decent plan over the last couple of days.
    3 -1 to the Toon – Martinez whingeing afterwards.

    Yes he talks football but the rest of his identities don’t, usually abuse jail for Ashley or do weird shit like telling crap jokes, posting Eurovision songs amongst other crys for help. Keep your eyes peeled and stop blaming the other resident crackpots it’s not them. Time to work it out for yourselves.
    Farewell.
