In writing earlier about the Moussa Sissoko transfer to Spurs we hit upon a good way of thinking of the deal from a Newcastle perspective.

We got 8 of the 12 players we signed in the summer for the £30M fee we received from Tottenham for the 27 year-old French International


Moussa Sissoko – his £30M fee funded 8 of our players

Jesus Gamez£1.5MAtletico Madrid
Isaac Hayden£2.5MArsenal
Grant Hanley£5.5MBlackburn
Ciaran Clark£5MAston Villa
Mohamed Diame£4.5MHull City
DeAndre Yedlin£5MTottenham
Daryl Murphy£3MIpswich Town
Achraf Lazaar£3MPalermo
Transfer Fees In£30M
Moussa Sissoko£30MTottenham Hotspur
Net Spend£0M

It was a very good deal for Newcastle.

    And if you look at another way having the surly faced tw@t around for so long probably cost us 135M in PL prize money!

    That model I did is very flawed.

    I just dashed it off in notepad.

    But in the millions certainly.

    But as
    Mr Tuff and Jail haven’t got a clue what I’m talking about it doesn’t really matter.

    Jib/Beer/Ibiza – re the Rafa bingo odds (probablity???) of getting it correct.
    Clearly odds would be reduced through injury – but trying to pick 11 correctly must have worse odds then lets say the National Lottery – whatever that is.
    Must be in the millions surely.

    woah – come back on and Jib is putting the boot in already.
    En garde monsieur.

    (Jib that is a bit of French – a fencing term.
    That is fencing with swords not putting up a fence around your hovel).
