Newcastle Hoping To Fend Off EPL Trio For Future Free Agent – Report



Newcastle are among a quartet of Premier League clubs interested in Borussia Monchengladbach’s Marcus Thuram according to The Sun. The 25-year-old is out of contract in the summer with Eddie Howe keen on landing him as a free agent.

Thuram can talk to clubs beginning in January with the Magpies along with Liverpool, Arsenal, and Spurs all interested. Newcastle have had a long interest in Thuram, who is the son of former French international Lillian Thuram.

Before the forward made his move to Germany in that infamous summer of 2019, Newcastle were linked with him. At the time, his French club Guingamp had been relegated to Ligue 2 with Thuram entering the final year of his contract.

Thuram has four caps for France, and his blistering form this season has him in Didier Deschamps World Cup squad. Following an injury-blighted season with just 3 goals, the 25-year-old has 13 already this season.

The right-footed attacker can play as an out-and-out striker or an inside forward on the left. He is known for his pace and power and is a handful for defenders on his day. As a free agent, he would provide outstanding value if Newcastle can fend off the competition for his signature.

Which Would You Prefer Newcastle Achieve This Season?

    The word woke gets used daily, and I’d guess that is defined as white middle class educated types. I’ve yet to see one woke throw a tantrum and try to get the word cancelled. Yet the minute gammon, it’s opposite gets used those that like to throw woke, loony lefty etc start crying outrage. A gammon isn’t necessarily white although the sterotype gammon as with woke would be.

    Well this Geordie is interested in Rugby (Union) and played for Gosforth (Now the Falcons). Minority sport compared to Footie, but 2nd on the list in Toon.
    Nb. Fishing is a past time, not a sport 🙂

    Hamming it up, Ham, Gammon has been an insult for hundreds of years.
    Personally, I don’t find it racist, just lazy.

    Yeah sure sweet cheeks, it refers to you and a few others Fenham, shocked you had to ask really, and for what it means, well it’s generally a slur relating to the archetype of a red-faced, angry, pompous, jingoistic, and stereotypically British right-winger….. Hope that clears things up.

    On the poll I voted cup due to being sick of hearing “when was the last time they won anything ” I also think it’ll be hard to get top 4 with the lack of depth in our squad, manure getting rid of Ronaldo will allow them to strengthen and Liverpool surely can’t stay as low as they presently are, I’m obviously hoping we can sustain our performances and see it through to the end but I predicted 8th before the season started and I’d still be happy with that tbf

    I have to say until today I’ve never heard of the term “Gammon”
    But all these recent terms get right on my ti – no better not – right up my nose!

    The word that seems to be lost is RESPECT or being RESPECTFUL to others.

    The Woke stuff just irritates me immensely!

    this week’s lexical meat-fest was gammongate, or perhaps Armagammon: a row about whether calling people “gammon” was racist or just stupid. For certain leftwingers, “gammon” is a contemptuous label for middle-aged white men with pink faces and (presumably) less than purely Momentum-esque political views.

    Pork-based insults are of course very old. “Gammon-faced” is an insult from 1604, and no actor likes to be called a ham. In 18th-century thieves’ cant, a “gammon” was an accomplice who distracted the victim’s attention. And “gammon” could also mean nonsensical talk or ideas – it is used by Dickens in The Pickwick Papers, but had existed for decades. In John Liddiard Nicholas’s 1817 travelogue, Narrative of a Voyage to New Zealand, our doughty explorer, visiting Maori chiefs, decides that their customs are “all gammon”: they retort, not unreasonably, that the preaching of his missionary friend is “gammon” too.

    Two hundred years ago, Nicholas explains, to say that something was “gammon”, or nonsense, was “the language of vulgar ridicule”. Not much progress is to be expected, perhaps, in the evolution of political abuse.

    ZG you’re a deluded idiot, I’m sorry to say.

    Every single episode of people trying to get others “cancelled” have been left wing folk trying to erase the facts, thoughts or opinions of those they disagree with.

    Labels unfortunately just dilute the message and the propaganda so the underlying facts are obscured by the labels, “woke” or “gammon”. They are deflections from the undisputed fact that a very high proportion of younger people want to silence their detractors. If they don’t like the message, get them cancelled, deplatformed, sacked even. It’s an insidious attack on the morals, beliefs and facts of history.

    “We don’t like it, so tear it down”. What happened to understanding, listening, learning, and empathy towards others??

    I’m off. Back mid December.

    As it happens the deadline for the FIFA Fantasy is right up until KO so you can change your team when you see the line ups, that’s of course if the site doesn’t crash.

    Darnik,
    I’d have been delighted with 8th at the start of the season, I’d be quite disappointed if that’s where we ended up now. My biggest worry about qualifying for Europe is how the squad will cope but I’m sure it’s not lost on the owners either and they’ll have a plan.

    Bob, most that is driven by advertisers not wanting to alienate their black, gay etc customers by allowing words that offend those customers. I was talking about this blog. I’ve not seen the left minded people complain about any words on here. Yet there was outrage about gammon, and we’ve had someone going nuts about the word narcissist and plenty of other right leaning people going mad over words. I’m talking on this blog, I’ll repeat.

    I know what you’re saying because we’ve come so far we all expect to finish higher and probably will, but it’s not the end of the world is what I meant we’d have still shown signs of improvement if we did only finish 8th,
    Hopefully we go for it in January and get 2 more players in to add to the return of isak then we give ourselves a chance of a European spot

    Bill’s,
    It’s been asked for years now if they can be removed, they’re absolutely worthless and probably do more harm than good. Apparently they’re built in to the system and Kasper can’t remove them. They probably seemed like a good idea at the time as research proved that Facebook generated more traffic because of them. Unfortunately I don’t think it works the same way on here.

    The usual suspects, Fenham who’s been valiantly assisted by a desperate for friends Tuff, must’ve provided enough inspiration for a few ditties from The Bard.

    Fenham out-Tuffing Tuff with his attempts at humour and Tuff basking in the support he gets from Fenham who continues to fly the flag for Britain says a lot about the pair of ’em! A mutual support born of emotional need and supported by other ‘gammon’.

    And they wonder why they feature in Bard’s perms?

    So, ‘Every single episode of people trying to get others “cancelled” have been left wing folk trying to erase the facts, thoughts or opinions of those they disagree with’?

    Really? Are the Holocaust deniers, for example, left wing Folk?

    A sweeping generalisation don’t you think?

    Sigh!
    A ‘gammon’ refers to the puce/gammon colour of the face of a radgi rightie, mostly referencing d cameron, when he was constantly sussed. Steam from ears, gammon red face, the perma-offended.

    Keep up!
