Cheick Tiote, in his very first season on Tyneside, has won the Newcastle United Blog Player of the Season award.
Cheick Tiote – what a player!
Cheick beat out Joey Barton to win fairly the vote comfortably, in a poll where each reader had one vote and a total of 2486 readers voted.
Here are the results of the poll.
Who Was Newcastle's Player Of The Season?
- Cheick Tiote (38%, 941 )
- Joey Barton (31%, 754 )
- Kevin Nolan (13%, 311 )
- Fabricio Colocccini (11%, 283 )
- Jose Enrique (4%, 108 )
- Jonas Gutierrez (3%, 74 )
Total Voters: 2,486
In previous years the winners were :
2008 – Habib Beye
2009 – Sebastian Bassong
2010 – Jose Enrique
It’s interesting that if Jose leaves this summer all previous three winners will no longer be at the club.

EVERYWHERE NUFC STEVE. Twitter mainly :’) This furlong guy said it before and lots of comments on a liverfool forum about it. Apparently ‘good reliable sources’

I can see why CT won, but I didn’t vote for him, as he only did half a season. Not taking anything away, but I think over the entire season Barton or Nolan have been our biggest contributors.
May 31, 2011 at 9:32 PMComment #9
Actually, furlong said it because someone sent him the link to the forum
May 31, 2011 at 9:34 PMComment #10
Don’t think it’s true
1) if Barton wud go newere it wudnt b l pool
2) the directors of Liverpool only want young players they will not lose money on!!!!
May 31, 2011 at 9:35 PMComment #11
furlong deleted his account lol. Bet it’s because he realised we were all going to find out he’s been BS’ing everyon about Gervinho for weeks.

Rumours at the moment are that we won’t get Gervinho and Barton’s going to Liverpool. However, apparently the club think we might be able to persuade Gameiro to sign.
May 31, 2011 at 9:39 PMComment #16
Been out for a while lads. Whats the update on transfers? Whats this on the other thread about Gervinho not joining?
May 31, 2011 at 9:40 PMComment #17
4.5m for Barton is a good deal. Lets fleece Liverpool again. They’ve already given us 36M for an injury prone, one dimensional, wife beating thug and p…s head.
Barton was offered a new contract just not as long as he had hoped for. Shepherd would have given him another stupid contract to take him up to 33/34. Barton should have accepted, see how he was playing in a couple of years time and review it then.
He knows in his own words we are getting better, younger, cheaper players who we will pay money for and wages too.
May 31, 2011 at 9:41 PMComment #18
any player who signs for liverpool is a fool,a team thats on the decline big time,thats why there star player jumped ship!!!!!!
May 31, 2011 at 9:41 PMComment #19
NottsGeordie- Basically everyone has realised that we may not get him and Arsenal may. But that has always been the case so nothing has actually changed. His comments could even be in our favour.
May 31, 2011 at 9:41 PMComment #20
Fur10ng – has not deleted his account.
Not saying I believe him though.
Hope we get some clarification from joey about this tonight. if we dont hear anything it might be true as he is not usually slow at responding…
May 31, 2011 at 9:42 PMComment #21
fur10ng just copies stuff from cwarr and other people on twitter. if cwarr writes something it soon appears on fur10ng.
cwarr has been on twitter alot longer than all these other itk people and has got quite a few right in previous tranfer windows, after he got tiote right a few of the journos started folowing him and check up on whatever he says. so far he has linked us to gervinho, gameiro and nzogbia. he has been saying these were our targets for a while. who are the local press now linking us with?

After spending a frustrating two years at Chelsea Daniel Sturridge moved to Bolton on loan for the second half of last season and showed what an exciting prospect he is. Owen Coyle made no secret of his desire to keep Sturridge and it does look likely that the youngster will leave Chelsea this summer. With Johan Elmander leaving Bolton Coyle will need a new striker, but funding might ultimately force Bolton out of this chase.
Newcastle have emerged as the most likely option, with £35 million from the sale of Andy Carroll to Liverpool in the January window still burning a hole in Alan Pardew’s pocket. Harry Redknapp is also keen on Sturridge, but the striker has proved what he can do with a regular run in a team and so the prospect of more first-team football might be enough to see him head up to the north-east.

After being left out of Manchester United’s Champions League final squad, it looks as though Dimitar Berbatov’s days at Old Trafford are numbered. It seems incredible that the club would let the Premier League’s top scorer leave and that he is valued at £7.5 million.
Newcastle are thought to be favourites to land Berbatov, but would the Bulgarian want to leave Old Trafford for St James’ Park? He will play regularly at Newcastle and the Sun claims he was a fan of the club when he was a boy, so this is a distinct possibility.

Cmon guys, this is a desperate plea!!
May 31, 2011 at 9:48 PMComment #32
I give vote to a whole team as a unit.
Don’t know what to think about latest rumour, £4.5M for Barton.
Very unlikely to happen methinks.
May 31, 2011 at 9:48 PMComment #33
he is now 0rac1e79 (I say while rolling my eyes)
May 31, 2011 at 9:49 PMComment #34
He s still there for me . Let’s just wait and see
May 31, 2011 at 9:50 PMComment #35
Tony is telling the truth thus far he is the only one whose predictions I trust without doubt…..(happy?!) haha
May 31, 2011 at 9:50 PMComment #36
People think Gervinho is no longer coming cos of some pratt who claims to know an insider. This guy is bolloxing all over, he claimed that there was no contact from Liverpool for Barton then next hour he claims that a £2.5m bid had been accepted.
He claims that he has an insider, but cmon he wouldn’t be pestering his insider 24/7 for all his information, and unless his insider is Pardew or Chanley or someone like that then they wouldn’t get to know this stuff instantly.
don’t believe him, as far as I’m concerned Gervinho will be announcing his arrival at Newcastle tomorrow.
May 31, 2011 at 9:51 PMComment #37
Absolutely no chance of getting Berbatov. Ashley wouldn’t pay a 30 year old 100k a week.
Reliable sources though, serious football journalists, are saying the Gameiro signing might be more realistic.
May 31, 2011 at 9:52 PMComment #38
according to cwarr were still signing gervinho.
this deal is the exact same as ben afra deal,
will he wont he????? lol
