There are reports from France that PSG youngster Moussa Sissako will decide between Newcastle and Brighton in the next 24-hours.
Newcastle were reportedly close to signing the 18-year-old last week.

Shields Gazette writer Liam Kennedy also has a report on this developing story.
Moussa Sissako must decide between Newcastle United and Brighton. According to reports in the France, the PSG youngster will make his decision in the next 24 hours. Four-year deal on the table. #NUFC #BHAFC https://t.co/D2lZOpi490 pic.twitter.com/yl72GgwuMM

Moussa Sissako has a 4-year contract offer on the table from both clubs and will now have to decide where he would like go. This would be a bit of a blow if we fail to land this talented centre-back.
Apparently, our targets are not starved of choice in deciding their futures. This is the third reported target who will decide between Newcastle and another club within the next few days.
While Sissako will be one for the academy, both Thiago Maia and Youssouf Sabaly will also be deciding between Newcastle and another club. We have to admit we will feel a little bit slighted if none of these players decide to come to NUFC.
Maia has been a long-term target of Newcastle as they tried to bring him in from Lille on loan last summer. He has a permanent offer on the table from Serie A club Genoa while the offer from Newcastle is, at least initially, just a loan deal.
Bordeaux have reportedly accepted bids from both Watford and Newcastle for their right-back Youssouf Sabaly. This one came out of the blue yesterday and those often are the deals that get done.
Sabaly would be a great addition at right wing-back and we really hope this one can get done. With a bit of luck, maybe all three of these players will be at Newcastle over the next few days and holding up the shirt.

If we get knocked back for Birmingham and Watford it’ll be as embarrassing as the second coming of Joe funkin Kinnear

Why is this blog always the tool for kids have a go at each other’s point of view.
We are all entitled to disagree with anyone,but the name calling on here is very much what you would expect in the schoolyard.
Divide and conquer eh.

have to agree with you could be something to do with the tea boy taking his time getting deals over the line …

When Rafa was here and it came down to convincing people to join us I was always quite confident he would win over most players to choose Newcastle over others.
Now we have Bruce and I’m not as confident no more. If Maia and Sissako choose Watford and Brighton then that will say it all. Really want both of these would be great additions.

Dave Toon I’d happily run him down there in the van.

This flurry of us offering money for players that gets accepted must be bulldo.
It’s “the line version 2.0” – We had our offer accepted but the player chose elsewhere!!
It was a choice of young progressive coach v Steve Bruce,
State of art training facilities v Benton,
Attractive salary and perks v Zero hour contract and Donnay socks,
Free tickets for friends and family v being charged £20k for the privelage.
Ooo, who should I chose, Newcastle or almost anyone else?

Prediction by McNulty – Bottom. Is he right?
Aug 6, 2019 at 11:44 AMComment #17
Wayne Rooney to Derby. Nothing surprises me in football anymore.
Aug 6, 2019 at 11:47 AMComment #18
i’m hoping Thiago Maia decides to come to us even though its only on loan at the moment , you never know he might fancy a crack in the EPL. and we have offered him more money so fingers crossed …
Aug 6, 2019 at 11:47 AMComment #19
Onalos, seen 2 predictions today, one as you pointed out tips us to come last, the other one 18th, looking good! Both point out the loss of Rafa as “significant” hmmm!!
Aug 6, 2019 at 11:47 AMComment #20
dont think we will bottom but we will be in bottom 5 or 6
Aug 6, 2019 at 11:49 AMComment #21
Geordietom, I hope you’re right and that I’m totally wrong, but it’s a hell of a change in attitude if we’re really getting all these “bids” accepted.

He’s going to do what he’s done at HoF, force landlords in to cheap rent for a year or pull out. In a years time he’ll close the shop but will have inherited a shit load of stock for 12.5M.

I’m not so sure that it’s the manager/coach which will make all the difference when a player is deciding between joining one club or another.
Certainly if the player has already played under a certain coach at another club it might make a difference, but I think it’s more about the location of the proposed club,( some players will want to be in or around London), possible the likely weather throughout the year, the size of the home crowds ( we have an advantage there), the fact that there are other players of the same nationality in the team, the possibility of European cup competitions, so many factors.

dont know much about bruce as manager is defensive minded like rafa was …all i remember was mackems being shyte when he was there
Aug 6, 2019 at 11:51 AMComment #27
I wonder how St Max would have heard of Steve Bruce, it certainly wouldn’t have been on any recent versions of Football manager.
Aug 6, 2019 at 11:52 AMComment #28
Jib @ 24, given that his prediction last season had Fulham and Watford down, does this mean we can expect to finish either top 8, or 11th?
Aug 6, 2019 at 11:52 AMComment #29
Did he not have them mid table-ish
Aug 6, 2019 at 11:53 AMComment #30
Should read Fulham 11th and Watford down. Went off half cocked again.

im not sure but i would take mid table-ish this season and a go at the cups …try at least
Aug 6, 2019 at 11:55 AMComment #35
@#boycott Arsenal, I’m fairly certain he was 16th or 17th in the league with Mackems for most of the season, and because of the results on the last day, they beat WHU 3 nowt (I think) and that shot them up the table to about 11th (I think again). That year most of the teams were already mentally on holiday.

i recon we will finish 12th …
