Lots Of Transfers – In And Out – Still To Come In Next Four Weeks


There are some players who will still leave Newcastle this summer and Rafa Benitez knows that and he is working hard to bring in new players as soon as possible, who will replace those still to leave.

Moussa Sissoko returns to the club on Monday from his summer break and is likely to go to either Real Madrid or Juventus fairly quickly.

The fee for the Frenchman is likely to be huge – and hopefully £35M – which is said to be Newcastle’s asking price for the French International.

Florian Thauvin – will likely leave soon for Lazio

Other players likely to be gone before September are Cheick Tiote and Florian Thauvin and they were the only outfield players who were left on the bench today.

Daryl Janmaat may also move on, but we hope Daryl will stay on Tyneside, and Frenchman Yoan Gouffran may leave, but he could also be a useful squad player for us this season.

Players like Sammy Ameobi, Haris Vuckic and Gael Bigirimana are not good enough and will be moved out either permanently or on loan this summer.

And Rafa’s plans for the future do not include French striker Emmanuel Riviere, who has been a bust since he signed on from Monaco two years ago for £6M.

Manu should leave Newcastle this summer for his own good and get his career back on track – probably at some club back in France.

Newcastle have brought in six players and moved eight players out so far, but those numbers will go up in the next four weeks.

    OT,
    There has been loads achieved, scrapping the ridiculous transfer policy and the “we don’t do cups” policy is a huge achievement. Getting a manager who has put obstacles in their way instead of a spineless yes man willing to go along with a set up he knows is doomed to fail was a huge turn in the right direction.

    Thanks for the detailed reports by those who get to attend games, I haven’t missed a game (TV) for years but I fear I’ll miss a few this time around.

    Anyway, I suspect we’ll often be the televised championship game.

    Jail, posted overleaf but Ed beat me to it. Where was everyone? We were both optimistic i think, though i ain’t heard the attendance – i just know i lost! 😉

    Did anybody else notice the drug sniffer dogs outside the gates for their fans? Talk about typecasting an entire nation!! 😉 Outrageous really and bordering on racism, coz i didn’t see the dogs anywhere else. 😉

    We’ll probably end up making about 40 50 mill on this window, leaving us with an inferior but better balanced group to last season. Someone mentioned fifth. I’d say top five for sure and 80% likelihood of going back up, most likely as Champions.

    Does anyone know when the squad numbers get announced? I know we can’t read too much into them but it’ll be interesting to see who gets the likes of number 2, 5, 7 (assuming sissoko is away) and 9. It may give us an indication of the starting 11 and also positions which he still may fancy filling…

    Bobby,
    Bairn seemed to enjoy the game well didn’t get bored at least. Maybe with the weather being so shite all summer people decided to do something else on a rare nice day, a lot of people on holiday as well. I though he’d just stick to three subs as well but it was good to get a glimpse of everyone.
    Tenner is for a good cause anyway.

    It’s still to early to say it’s changed, it looks like we have changed but with Ashley you just never know. Rafa might get us promoted and then asked to leave like Houghton….it can all change very quickly which is why I say nothing has been achieved, if in 2 years time Rafa is still here and we continue to progress then I’ll say it’s changed.

    Bobby – yeah thought Armstrong had been out and was returning which then doesn’t surprise me regarding his sub standard performance but he needs to pick himself up quickly as we may not give him to many chances. I’m very concerned by the defence at set pieces

    On the 50th anniversary of England’s only achievement, a little story for you. Obviously we all know about the game, so no point recalling that, but what always stuck in my head was half time. I was nine – just – and at half time my mam sent me to the shop to get her a packet of fags. How times change! I came out of the house and it was like the end of the world. Nobody was on the streets. Not even any cars passing me on the road. It was downright spooky to a young lad. Got to the shop, to find the keeper watching the proceedings on his tv, that he’d brought down from his flat and was using coathangers to get a reception. Again, not a soul on the streets for the journey home and i got there just before ko – so a ten minute trip to the shop without seeing another living soul, other than the shopkeeper. So strange, it’s stayed with me all my life. The whole country must’ve been glued to the box. Shows what a big deal it was.

    OT,
    I’m not going to worry about what Ashley may or may not do. All we know is that weeks of talks went on to minimise Ashley reverting to type. Rafa is the first manager under Ashley’s regime that has came in a position of strength. Even if he fails at least there is now a point to our existence.

    Yeah, I’m also cautious about how Rafa’s relationship with the owner might develop. He will want good amounts of money to reshape the squad each year he’s with us, and of course won’t hesitate to walk if he’s unhappy. I also suspect he’ll be going into the season with a weaker group than he imagined and have doubts that he would stay on if he fails to take us back at the first attempt.

    Croftus, I think a few of them may be loan deals and they tend to happen after all the buying and selling has been done. I’d hope that the players that are clearly not going to make the grade get loaned out with an option to buy as they seem to have been around for far too long now… Although, we could just see them running their contracts down.

    As for Gouffran, he’s a reserve substitute at best really isn’t he. He’s not going to get into many of the first 18 on match days. And might be another one who is moved on if and when we get a few more over the line.

    It’ll be interesting to see if he goes for a few loan deals come the end of the window. Maybe raid the Spanish league for youngsters or players at the end of their careers? Although if gamez is anything to go by, maybe we should stay clear. He was awful today.

    I’d defo keep gouffran as he can be a useful squad player, riviere I’m 50/50 on but if we got a long term injury to either Gayle or mitro we would be knackered so potentially keep him. Sissoko, Thauvin and unfortunately Tiote are off so that will reduce the numbers.

    Rafa had all the chips as we got relegated, if promoted then Ashley is back where he wants to be. Like I say with Houghton he pulled the plug and can do just as easily with Rafa. At this moment Ashley needs rafa!!

    No one is complaining about conceding goals in general, we are complaining at conceding goals from set pieces and giving away daft goals. Big difference mate, it’s about making a team work for the goals not gifting them away

    Our toon, aye, the lad didn’t kick a ball properly until we got back from Ireland and clearly Rafa hasn’t tried to rush him back, giving him 20-30 minutes here and there. It takes time to get match fit, let alone peak sharpness and it obviously showed today. Maybe if they’d picked out more than just one of his runs things might’ve been different, but every time he set off on one, they played it in another direction! You need to play to his strengths firstly, which is his runs through the channels and behind the defence. I’m sure Rafa has seen his vids and he knows about getting match sharp. Maybe the first half of the season on loan so he comes back as sharp as he can be? He’s so much better than he was today and he’ll show it when he gets 100% again. My opinion on the kid hasn’t changed, that’s for sure. 😉

    That’s good to here buddy, yeah it would be good to get him out on loan early on but no point in dropping back down to league 1. He can still contribute to us though this season, hopefully the lad takes the opportunity when it comes his way

    arma could do with a fit SDJ to see those runs,thats the intelligence and creativity we seem to be just lacking at the minute unfortunately…but tbh even my patients is waring thin with sdj’s injuries…i know its not his fault but its so bloody frustrating coz him fit would take this side to another level, i believe…..i doubt we will ever see that now…hope im wrong still.

    Our toon, he’s done league one and a goal every other game average says it all. Personally, at this stage, i’d give him time here because he’ll be learning from the best – Rafa. Where else will he get an education like that, with respect to other managers in the Championship? He’ll prove himself, but he’s had an injury at what can only be described as the worst time possible. I think our first half midfield would’ve suited him better, but that’s life innit? Injuries come and go, but his talent will remain. He’s about where i’d expect him to be coming back from an injury lay off – not as sharp as normal.

    Springy, they played so well together in the U21’s because SDJ was on the same wavelength mentally. He did pick his runs and it paid off. I hope de jong does get fit because he’s far better than we’ve seen of him. Talk about unlucky injury wise! Freaky injuries by anybody’s standards! Let’s hope this season he can stay fit because he will rip the Championship apart. With his brain, he doesn’t need pace, yet always looks to have time on the ball, which is always a sign of quality. Fingers crossed.

    Riviere, like Thauvin just hasn’t been able to show what Carr saw to justify his signing them.

    Or maybe there was nowt to see that would add anything to the Club?

    So, why did he recommend signing those two?
