Report – Newcastle Miss Out On Top Target – Time Running Out

Get French Football News (GFFN) are reporting that their sources say that Stanley N’Soki has rejected a move to Newcastle.

All this after things looked so positive earlier today with the player reportedly wanting to join Rafa Benitez at Newcastle.

The Chronicle are now reporting after the GFFN news that N’Soki has turned down Newcastle because he doesn’t want to join the Premier League this early in his career.

And with leaving things this late – Newcastle will find it very difficult to bring any more players in during the next couple of days – given their record of needing lots of time to sign players.

In transfers things very rarely go nice and smoothly at the best of times – especially for Newcastle.

Rafa will not be happy if we cannot get a center-back and a left back through the door in the next couple of days.

And we don’t seem to have sufficient strike force in place yet and need another striker brought in.

Stanley N’Soki – rejected a move to Newcastle?

Here is the tweet from Get French Football News:

N’Soki wants to move to the Premier League when he has established himself more at PSG where he is still in negotiations on a new potential contract.

And the Chronicle are reporting that he has one more year left on his current contract.

Comments welcome.

    We’ve signed a player from South Korea, one from Japan and it looks like we’re signing the elusive Chinese superstar Nee Foo KinWan by deadline day

    Yeah, lots of players want to come to NUFC so they can see the owner try to stiff them out of their bonus money or any number of two bit antics.
    A player comes to NUFC to put up with the shite to get a better payday or because he has flaws in his game or mental state that precludes him from joining a normal team.

    I doubt of N’soki has made a decision that it’s too early to come to the Premier League.
    More like that someone in his entourage has whispered in his ear something about the nightlife in Lundun is better and that you’ll get more money from ( delete as required ) , Chelsea, Arsenal , West Ham.
    He was left out of the PSG squad I believe so has he travelled to London and got stuck or been poached by someone with a Playstation ?
    Sounds like he’s been nobbled.

    Hibbit – now a loan gives him the chance to develop his game and keep his future options open.
    How has that not worked either ? ( yet ? )

    For me the only worry is the part about Ashley driving Rafa out of the club. Once that happens the game is up. I don’t think any supporter will be willing to accept more dross like Carver in his place. Or even another STeve McMuffin. So there will be a drastic turn for the worse once Rafa leaves that Ashley will have to deal with. Sell now fool.

    Time running out? For what? Nobody d so stupid to think we will sign anybody? Fat man can play the fans like a fine fiddle and they will turn up totally pissed off against Spurs in their droves and the fat man will be sitting at home as happy as larry.
    Fat man is 25 million in CREDIT this summer just on transfers. He got 125 million from SKY this summer. The guy is making a fortune at NUFC and peddles the same old rubbish about lending the club 150 million. He has got that back and loads more. HE WILL NEVER SELL voluntarily. Why should he when he is making so much money and the loyalist or dumbest fans (depending on your perspective) keep going to games.
    So what is the point of putting more cash in his pocket???
    To support Rafa?
    Well everybody and his dog knows he is going in May. He would have gone anywhere if somebody had paid his release clause.
    We all know what is coming.
    Rafa goes in May and we stay up by the skin of our teeth.
    Pardew or similar gets appointed and we go down the following May. Pardew is given 80 million to get us back up and so the sad saga goes on and on and on.
    If you want to keep this living hell going then keep going to the games. But do not complain because you are the problem

    Mike Ashley, owner of Newcastle United, has written to the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport regarding the petition on football club ownership which Chi presented in the House of Commons last month. Mr Ashley’s letter can be found here.
    Chi’s response to Mr Ashley’s letter is as follows:
    “I am pleased that Mr Ashley has finally decided to speak about his investment in Newcastle United, even if it is to the Secretary of State rather than the numerous fans, media and others who have attempted to engage with him over the years. My own attempt is here. His office responded by instructing me not to contact him again.
    “However, his letter does not address the central point: the lack of investment in Newcastle United players which has left the club with one of the lowest net spend figures in the Premier League.
    “The petition I presented is merely a reflection of the concerns and strength and depth of feeling of so many Newcastle United fans who contacted me as their Member of Parliament. I was particularly concerned by the ‘If Rafa Goes, We Go’ petition, knowing how important role Newcastle United plays in the lives of many of my constituents I do not feel they should have to choose between their club and its ownership. A quick review of social media will show the petition was received overwhelmingly positively received by fans unable to get Mr. Ashley’s attention by other means.
    “I’m very upset to hear that abuse has been directed at Sports Direct staff. I invite Mr. Ashley to join me in my longstanding efforts ensure the proper regulation of social media. However Mr. Ashley knows very well that the calls to boycott Sports Direct existed long before my petition and are generally connected to his appalling behaviour as a business owner rather than his record as a football club owner.
    “Also at no time have I criticized the Newcastle United Foundation which does wonderful work in the community and whose funding is not, as Mr Ashley implies, entirely a consequence of his ownership.
    “I will be writing to the Secretary of State, Jeremy Wright, to offer a meeting with myself and Newcastle United fans so he can judge for himself the depth of feeling on this issue and the crucial importance of football to my constituents
    “Finally Mr Ashley knows I am a fan of Newcastle United as well as the MP for St James’ Park. I boycotted the ground for three years because of his choice of Wonga as a sponsor. I admit to being motivated in part by my support for the club and desire to see beautiful Premiership football continue to be played at St James Park.”

    Yes why are you advertising a Marxist, Communist anti Semite on a football blog.

    Heard a rumour this afternoon that MA is looking into the feasibility of placing tracking chips in the player’s shorts to record how much they run around on home match days. He want to charge them for the wear and tear they each personally inflict on the pitch. Can’t vouch for the validity of the rumour mind you, it might not be true..

    Boycotts are the only way to get a message across whether fans agree with it or not. Every live televised game should be played in an empty stadium. Show a message to the world. Great advert for SD.

    Actions are louder than words.

    SJP would still be full if Pards came back. There would be alot of moaning at first maybe.

    Don’t attend the game
    Or support the regime by going
    Simple as that
    An empty stadium first home game of the season will really put the cat amongst the pigeons
    Who cares if he already has your money
    Time to make a stand
    If I see 50000 geordies in the ground then there is a saying
    Pissing in the wind
    Yes the team will suffer in the short term but in the long run we will win this fight
    Time to take your gloves off and play the fat man at his own game
    Hit him in the pocket
    It will become unbearable for him
    The night club owners anD bar owners at Newcastle will be cueing up for him when they start losing money
    Trust me there is some real nasty characters about
    Or go be a sheep

    Hang on. The team troops out to an empty silent stadium to play the like of Spurs and Chelsea in their first 2 home games. They’ll get ripped apart!! And the games are being broadcast worldwide.

    (From previous post) Yes money is a massive motivation for Ashley, but a guy as smart as him would surely suss out that the club with Rafa on board, competing in a serious way in the premiership and the cup competitions and in Europe would be a much more valuable club, bringing in more advertising exposure for SD than one struggling to stay in the PL and looking for a new manager at the end of the season.
    No, I really think it’s the vendetta he has against the city and it’s fans which is his driving force.
