    Of course we should keep him. As a fan I don’t care about the risk of the club losing money if we keep him. If we want to get out of the league then quality players will ensure that. If we sell them then we level the playing field as seen at Fulham when they were missing and the likes of hayden and Hanley were brought in. It’s a simple decision as a fan!

    I’d sign Defoe. Might get slated for saying that but he’s the type that can nick us a goal at any time

    If he was played for Man Utd years ago under fergie with that attitude, fergie would have booted him out, like he did with so many players who thought they were bigger than the cub.

    Possibly the best signing since Shearer, but there are a lotta morons that are pissed about him not wanting to play for the club and probably wouldn’t recognise quality if they saw it.

    C’mon folks it’s a short career give the guy a break, he owes us nothing especially a year in the second tier, with a questionable side.

    He was our best player last season and deserves better.

    You’d keep him if you thought you’d regularly see him at his best, but who thinks that would happen? If he looked uninterested last season, imagine him in the Championship. It must have surely reached the point of no return now with Sissoko, both figuratively and literally speaking.

    I never want to see that man put a Newcastle shirt on ever again, most ungrateful tosser to even grace the shirt.
    Hate him and if a deal doesn’t happen I hope he rots in the reserves

    He’s the type of striker that can score from nothing and that’s what we need because it ain’t gonna be easy as we saw Friday night

    How many times did he play well last season and how many goals did he score.

    And he expects the likes of Real Madrid, Man Utd, Arsenal and Liverpool to come in for him, don’t think so somehow.

    As far as I’m concerned, he should stay….. At least until January. One school of thought says “he got us into the mess, so he can help get us out” my reasoning? If nobody bids what Rafa wants, he stays…. Now, if he wants his “dream club” (whichever one it is at Christmas!) to come and get him, he’s surely got to repeat the form he showed in the Euros, if he stays and sulks on the bench…. Who would want him. It’s a win/win for us I think.

    Rafa want to keep him. I trust Rafa. Sissoko would become more consistent under Rafa. We seriously lacked players who can make a difference at Fulham. Rafa has already lost 2 players he would have loved to keep in Gini and Townsend. And that`s after all the talk we don?t need to sell anyone. If we lose Sissko too our first 11 gets worryingly inferior to the one that ended last season so brilliantly.

    I couldn’t agree more re Rafa and the doubters. Rafa is probably our only hope of getting promoted not only because of his ability but the fact he is really running the club ! If he left we would revert back to last seasons regime. But Rafa has to get a guaranteed goalscorer in and I’m sure he knows that what he’s got isn’t enough! If we can see it then you know Rafa can but he has the Sissoko sh*t to sort and I think it’s waiting for the Pogba money and he’ll go to Juve!

    It’s going to be tough this season, really strong teams that on their day anyone could finish top 3, panel Friday night said this is probably the strongest league ever in terms of managers.

    Benitez
    Di Matteo
    Monk
    Hasslebaink
    Coyle
    Hughton
    Pearson

    Why wouldn’t Sissoko become more consistent under Rafa if other players are expected to?

    I think Rafa will sort the defence 1st then work on the attack, if you don’t concede you don’t lose.
    Once we get a couple of clean sheets under our belts and everyone is on the same pAge at the back he will work on the best attacking options vs each team depending on their strengths and weaknesses .
    It’s very early days and he probably hasn’t even Sussed his best 11 never mind tweaking to gain an advantage vs each specific opponent.
    There’s a long way to go , Rafa is good but to expect every player to forge relationships with each other and to read what each other are going to do is a little bit naive .
    A little time is all it will take for the defence to be coached and drilled, then and only then can we expect the attacking element of the team to be structured and seamless ,I think by mid September the team will be firing on all cylinders , with the new players bedded in and everyone on the same page.
    Don’t get me wrong, I think we will win a few games before then but maybe through an act of brilliance ( like Fraudew used to rely on) after that , our creativity and overall gameplay will be coached into them and we will reap the rewards of the Rafalution. IMHO. HWTL. HWTF

    “So what can we expect from Newcastle this week?
    United are hoping to bring in a striker and a winger – and it’s emerged that they’re looking for a left-back. Brendan Galloway of Everton is one name being mentioned at St James’ Park.

    Striker-wise, Newcastle hope to do something in the next seven days with an eye on back-to-back fixtures against Huddersfield and Reading. United are looking for an experienced option.

    Some more dead wood could be cleared. Interest has been expressed in Manu Riviere while it also appears that Sammy Ameobi has been told to find a new club. He has not been given a squad number.

    Mo Diame should start against Huddersfield.”

    Fingers crossed!

    We need more creativity and pace in the side. Hope Rafa has in mind names previously mentioned for LB, LW/LM and ST with proven goal scoring record. 4-3-3 , drop Anita who lacks artistry, pace range of passing and play Richie on the right where he is most threatening. Hayden Shelvey and Diame to run midfield for forthcoming games and until further signings made.

    AC scoring from a follow up of his powerful header against Juve. Had a very good pre-season. Looking fit and sharp again. Seems to be growing in status there, so unless they go and splash on a ST or 2, can’t see them willing to sell what looks like their main man now 🙁

    Why stir up mob feeling over Sissoko every 5 mins? It’s like Farage and brexit all over again. He wants to go, we’re preparing for life without him. Move on.

    People are voting for Sissoko to go, why? He may not have played to his full potential last season, neither did every other squad member. The money will be more important to the club along with sissoko’s ego.
    But tbh we need him.

    Whatever the quality or perceived value, keeping a player with such ambitions in the second tier just won’t work. it’s a no brainer. Which is why a few seem to be struggling with it ha ha.
