Jubilant Geordies Set Twitter Alight On £30M Everton Sissoko Deal



It didn’t take Newcastle fans on Twitter long to express their joy at the news that Everton have agreed to pay Newcastle £30M for Moussa Sissoko – a player who is not exactly adored on Tyneside.

Maybe because Moussa played more good games for France in the Euro 2016 Championships than he did in the whole of last season for Newcastle, when we were relegated.

Maybe that’s it?

Moussa Sissoko – did he want to leave Newcastle?
Looks like it

This is a great deal for Newcastle – we only want players who want to be at Newcastle at this time and be part of the Rafa revolution – and they have to have big hearts too.

Certainly all our new signings seem like great lads who were anxious to join the club – so given that – it’s probably appropriate that Sissoko leaves.

Here’s The Duffmeister – I think he’s pleased.

    Can’t see it myself.

    Not unless you plan on counting Atsu who’s mysteriously taken so long to be announced that it seems they’ve waited and waited and waited and waited for sisulko to be be sold then they’ll announce him.

    Get McCarthy in the Sissulko deal and sign Knockaert that’ll do nicely

    Jury’s out on Charnley unless he moves lonely Sammy out to Tramere ( the Mersey teams have cash to burn ) , maybe £10m . That would earn respect.

    As Newcastle fans, we are all happy he has gone, but iam sure all decent Newcastke fans do not agree with that guy who stated on here he hoped he picked up a career ending injury, thats the lowest of the low, we know the guy did not do himself any favours by the way he conducked himself about leaving Newcastle, but no decent Newcastle and true Newcastle fan would wish Sissoko a career ending injury. HWTL.

    No no no its just not good to end the evening with a relative negative like a sale that has the unhealthy reminiscence of the Andy-you-know-who thing….

    Just to be in the safe side, round the night off with an admittedly uninspiring signing. YaY! Fives!

    “Wasted away again in Northumberland
    Searchin’ for my lost ticket to France
    Some people claim that there’s a Toffee to blame,
    But I know, it’s my own damn fault.
    Yes, and some people claim that there’s a Toffee to blame, And I know it’s my own damn fault ”
    Beautiful Moussa. Enjoy bindipperville.

    Tsunki……. Joking apart, I genuinely believe the club will be allowed to spend the money it generates which includes profit from transfers.

    I can’t see anyone else coming in tonight now but if we need to strengthen the squad in Jan. then the funds are there.

    30 mil. for a big powerful runner with a poor touch , poor technical skills and a poor reader of the game is downright fraud. Lol.

    Love how fans rejoice like they personally sold him? Did you pocket 30 mil pounds? NO. Feels like Andy sale, so late could not make profit from it.

    Can we bring in a few players right this minute? Lets hope so.

    I think it may yet emerge that £30m is a headline figure.

    Even if that’s it for transfers, I’m happy with what we’ve done. He’s not gone for big names, but he’s assembled a team that is getting better by the week. It’s completely interchangeable, so injuries are adequately covered seamlessly. We have the ream, the manager and support to win the Championship and looking at our new squad, is it any wonder we’re odds on to win it? Once this lot click properly, I predict some high victories coming our way. We are well and truly on our way back.

    Betty I’m hoping that none of the former demons still lurk. I really am.

    In the meantime though, it is a time to revel in the great heist at the expense of our western cousins. Ha! I say. And Thrice… Ha!

    To be truthfully honest I’d have been happier seeing him go to WBA for 15M than Everton for 30M. Not economically sensible at all but hey how!

    Gorgonzola, there are more subtle ways to do that. And they don’t work either ha ha.

    In recent years big money transfers out of the club were very disappointing but for once I can give ashley great praise selling a player for a large amount of cash, I don’t care one bit if he were to keep some of the cash all I cared about was getting rid of sickoko. He certainly joined a very well known CL club or should I say mid table PL club atleast he’s still got a big derby.

    You where never going to get that money again Gorgonzola.

    I would normally agree with you but this bloke needed to go whenever or wherever.

    You got the scoop. No cans for me.

    As much as rafa said that it wouldn’t happen on the 30/31st. We kinda knew it would if a big enough bid came in.

    Shirebrook

    Aye, there’s always that but it just seems a waste sitting there till then when we need another winger (on top of Atsu) imo.

    Very much doubt we’ll get anyone else in now. Apart from atsu. Journos saying same. Can’t see anyone worth having being available at this late stage. Nice war chest for January.
