Martins Joins Wolfsburg


Obafemi Martins has sealed his move to Bundesliga Champions Wolfsburg according to the German club.

Obafemi Martins-Will join exciting German side


Martins was pulled out the Leeds game at the last minute amidst rumors of a possible deal to Wolfsburg. Today Wolfsburg have announced that Martins has signed a four year deal. He will join the Champions League newcomers in what has to be an exciting move for Oba.

We wish him luck as he was a popular and exciting player. His wages were just too high to maintain in the Championship and no one can fault him for joining a burgeoning side in Wolfsburg.

There is also news that Manchester City are in the race to sign Sebastien Bassong. While Bassong’s wages are not a problem, it seems he is determined to play in the Championship next season.

Since Seb is so young and promising maybe a loan deal could suit both club and player in hopes that Newcastle will be back up next season. This is highly unlikely since Ashley could easily net about £9M in a deal for Bassong after paying only £500K for him last year.

    Bye Bye Oba. Think I’m gonna need another name (nah’ I will not change it). We will miss Martins, but let’s be honnest it was going to be this way.
    I still believe that a fully fit Martins would have scored one of those chances in the last games of the season to keep us in the EPL. It wasn’t meant to be.

    Good luck in Germany!!!

    I think a lot of time has passed since dyer was here & he’s clearly grown up since then but as I said above the likes of him & JJ owe everything to Bobby.

    i honestly loved martins but it makes me sick that he, or if it wasnt him, wolfsburg football club can release a statement saying they have signed him when this is clearly a day to mourn sir bobby robson, and for martins to say he is delighted to be there makes me question whether he has any emotions at all after what has happened today

    depsite this, im gonna miss oba as well as for some reason, although he didnt score as many, he scored some crackers and for this i will miss him as well

    Oba Martins
    You will not be missed, you epitomise the modern day footaballer, poor intelligence and vastly overated, these are the facts-
    1) Poor finisher
    2) Poor first touch
    3) Inability to forge a partnership with any other NUFC striker.
    4) Unable to read the game
    Good Points
    1) Popular player
    2) Unpredictable
    SBR – Devasted by his death and heartened by Dyer’s interview as showed as an ex player, genuine emotion.
    Next weeks game we need to hear the “One Bobby Robson” song.
    RIP great man……………………

    can’t see seb going out on loan as i think he only has a year left on his contract and would be able to leave on a free after this season.

    £9m for someone who couldn’t trap a bag of wet cement & trapped a ball farther than I ncould kick it is great business. IMO he was worse than useless he scored the odd spectaular goal but certainly wasn’t a team player and in th fizzy pop league we need players who will work 90 mins for the team good luck to him and good riddance

    ….REET! Thisiz been deen mi fkn heed in for ages……

    Due to relativistic effects (Dirac equation), the magnetic moment arising from the electron spin is ? = ? ?Bgs with g the gyro-magnetic factor (about 2). ? = ?l + g?s The interaction energy therefore gets UB = ? ?B = ?BB(ml + gms).

    Surely to god you didn’t want to keep Owen and Viduka the ”sick note” twins on their crippling salaries.

    As for Oba, we have a ready made replacement in Ranger.

    I wouldn’t consider losing this 3 as a step backward, far from it and we’ve shaved 14m (yes FOURTEEN MILLION !) a year on wages.
