Summer Target Stays At French Club But Remains On The Fringe



After a summer of speculation for Lille midfielder Thiago Maia, the Brazilian has remained with Lille despite receiving numerous lifelines elsewhere. There were reports late in the English transfer window that Newcastle were close to an agreement for the 22-year-old.

It was claimed that it was up to Thiago to chose between joining Genoa or Newcastle. However, nothing happened on either front. In late August, Sampdoria jumped in the fray for the midfielder as well. Thiago has decided to remain at Lille.

There is a report in La Voix Du Nord that says that Maia did not want to leave the Ligue 1 club because it had qualified for Champions League football.

Lille manager Christophe Gaultier, who was once linked as an Alan Pardew replacement, has managed to get Lille into the Champions League by finishing second last season. That was despite taking over a struggling side halfway through the season before when they just survived relegation to finish 17th.

The fact that Lille are now in the Champions League seems to have influenced Thiago Maia’s decision to remain at the club. However, it has not changed the fact that Gaultier just does not rate the midfielder.

After starting only 11 games in Ligue 1 last season, Maia has played just 44 minutes for Lille this season. He may get his Champions League football, but he’ll most likely be watching it from the sidelines.

    I think attacking SD stores is counter productive
    a It doesn’t worry MA that much

    b It puts fans in a bad light as trouble makers

    c Gives SD free advertising when news channels do show it

    However his online business is his growth area and more precious to him

    Set up a redirect to a website that highlights his shortcomings as an employer
    or owner of NUFC ( or both)

    That would have an effect

    You wouldn’t get sued unless you sold them on. If everyone bought there’s from China where they don’t have any laws you would be fine. Would need to make sure you didn’t become the supplier of the jumpers.

    We are setting up a alternative supporters shirt, then the blank space were advertising usually is will be saved for transfers to be used for protest pieces. Basically a walking protest message board.
    I have companies on board who are willing to send transfers over.
    Was in a meeting with shirt supplier yesterday.
    If yous joined the magpie group yous would know.

    Yes but the transfer would be put on by the supplier in China who can’t be sued. Surely a large group of people would stick a pound in each.

    That’s the only sensible idea I have ever heard when discussing tactics. The only thing that would actually directly impact Ashley and he would be forced to sell if it was a large amount every game.

    and drew the wrong conclusion.

    I was just about to offer you the use of one of my Samoan contacts
    then you make a snide comment and spoil yourself so you can do one

    That’s why the protest groups will fail – they are full of horrible buggers
