  1. Thought this was worthy of a thread as it looks like both are signing and going to be loaned back. Know nothing of Darlow but I've read things about Lascelles in the past and he seems to be rated as a decent prospect. Forest fans don't seem to be happy about it. http://www.forest.vitalfootball.co.uk/forum/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=28594&posts=12
  2. Lee Ryder wrote on the Chronicle site about Ben Arfa been at the Gateshead game on Saturday, and that he had said that he wanted to take in the atmosphere and see a local game. I received a mms on my phone yesterday evening, to open it and find a picture of a very lush Mercedes ride with plate beginning in, "BA...". This was sent from my brother and it turns out Hatem came into the bar that they were in yesterday and that my brother's friend was chatting with him for ages in there. He told us that he's such a nice guy, genuine, and seems keen to talk to fans and locals, rather than hiding away in a millionaire mansion and forgetting those who sing his name. Now I remember getting a similar call when Andy Carroll was out in town, and as my brother approached him to speak to him, a 'heavy' who was with him was quick to throw my brother in the other way. I've been curious as to the motives of Ben Arfa. Does he want to play in Black 'n White? Why does he love the place so much? I always thought that players didn't really give two flyers about us lot who fork out to go and cheer the Toon along, but Hatem certainly seems to be different.
  3. My true Valentine.
  4. Linked with Yaya Toure, fuck that. Massive wages, he's well past his best and goes missing for long spells. It would be a poor investment for us.
  5. Any news on his injury?
  6. We all know we needed a new centre half in the summer. Last year Perch done canny at times when called for and most were nervous about Williamson. The latter has continued his shaky form this year and it more unusual than not to not have both Steve Taylor and Colo fit at the same time. Taylor now looks to be out until next year. Surely we have to bring someone in to compete with Taylor and Colo for a start? I have a horrible feeling they will look at Taylor coming back and think we will be ok and that we have just been unlucky with injuries. Another gamble but this one didnt come off. Wouldnt surprise me to see them gamble again. Talk of Douglas etc is fine but we know we wont be backed in to a corner on price.
  7. http://news.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,30000-1267784,00.html Get well soon, you drunken old twat.
  8. what length of contract is he on ? The club have rejected his terms of a new one ? [i've been away for a few days again so I don't know if this has been in the press or not] Good news or bad, considering who may replace him if he goes. Desperate times.
  9. Paul Joyce, Northern Football Correspondent June 5 2017 "Newcastle United have won the race to sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham as Rafa Benítez looks to bolster his attack for the assault on the Premier League." "The 19-year-old forward enjoyed an exceptional season on loan at Bristol City last season, scoring 26 goals in 48 matches, and will now make a step up in standard." "The deal represents a coup for Newcastle and Benítez, who has good relations with Chelsea from his spell as interim manager at Stamford Bridge when he won the Europa League in 2013. " "Brighton & Hove Albion, also newly promoted from the Championship, had been interested in recruiting Abraham, who will instead move to St James’ Park on loan."
  10. Hopefully he will stay with the club, heavily linked with Man City today.
  11. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/13139857.stm Would love to know the facts about this? The fact he took a lot of money for little return? The fact he couldnt be bothered or the fact he cared amount England than the club paying his wages!
  12. Well, might as well be. from .co.uk - http://www.nufc.co.uk/articles/20130301/club-statement-nile-ranger_2281670_3094148 Fucking waste of space that lad is.
  13. According to Keith Downie from Sky Sports it's now a loan deal
  14. I've been thinking this week about strikers at the club and will we ever see someone as good as Shearer again? I doubt it. What prompted the thoughts was me watching the derby against Sunderland where he scored his final goal. I remember the scenes in the away end that day, different class. He scored some pearlers for us in his time here, without doubt my favourite ever player at the club (Beardsley in a close second). What's your favourite goal? This one for me, purely for the memories of the whole stand absolutely bouncing when it went in. It was a tight game and the mixture of relief and jubilation will always stay with me. What a player.
  15. Who do you reckon we'll sell, and how much will we get for them? de Jong - £5m Saivet - £3m Riviere - £1.5m Satka - £0 Toney - £0.5m Armstrong? - £1.5m Vuckic - £0.25m ------- Sels - £4m Haidara - £1m Gamez -£0m Good - £0m Hanley? - £3m Colback - £4m Anita - £0m Ameobi - £3m Gouffran - £0m Aarons? - £1m Murphy - £1m transfermarkt puts their respective market values as above. I've adjusted a few because of their age, contract status or performances (all negatively). Returns about £28m None of them are first team, and few should even get in the squad. That'd do, right?
  16. Newcastle United have completed the signing of Republic of Ireland international defender Ciaran Clark. The versatile 26-year-old joins from Aston Villa for an undisclosed fee and has put pen to paper on a five-year deal at St. James' Park. Clark came up through the ranks at Villa Park before making his debut in August 2009, while still a teenager. It wasn't long before he became a regular in the Villa side and over the following six seasons made a further 158 appearances, scoring ten goals. The centre-back has also won 19 caps for the Republic of Ireland, representing his nation at Euro 2016 this summer. "Newcastle is a massive club so I'm really happy to be here," said Clark. "Importantly, it is a club that is moving in the right direction and pushing for the right things, so I'm really excited to now be a part of that. "Things seem to have progressed really quickly over the last few days but I'm delighted to have got it all done and be a part of this squad." Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez added: "Ciaran is a very versatile player, as a left-footed centre-back he can also play left-back and also as a defensive midfielder. "He has a lot of experience of English football and will add good balance and competition to our squad. "I am sure he will progress with us here at Newcastle, we are very happy for him to join us." That's telling, isn't it.
  17. Hi guys, Just thought I'd give you a heads up on a programme going out on ITV4 next Tuesday at 9pm (January 31st) about one of our former players. Like him or loathe him, Craig Bellamy's fiery nature on the football pitch usually divides opinion amongst football fans and players alike. Less known about Craig is his outstanding charity work out in Sierra Leone and his commitment to the children of a country still recovering from a brutal civil war. If you're interested in the work he's doing for deprived children in Africa and want to know a little bit more about the real Bellers then check out the documentary...see whether it changes your perceptions of him!! Cheers, A CBFtoon
  18. Keeps calling Karl Henry Kalvin, going on about him playing the big un. Entertaining as always.
  19. Newcastle United have completed the signing of striker Dwight Gayle from Crystal Palace Newcastle United have completed the signing of Dwight Gayle from Crystal Palace. The 25-year-old striker arrives at St. James' Park for an undisclosed fee and has put pen to paper on a five-year deal. Gayle began his professional career at Dagenham & Redbridge and spent time on loan at Bishop's Stortford and Peterborough United before joining the latter permanently in January 2013. However, just six months later Palace made their move for the front man in a then-club record switch, and Gayle spent three seasons at Selhurst Park, finishing as the Eagles' top scorer in each of them and featuring in the 2016 FA Cup final at Wembley. "It's a dream come true to be at a big club like this," said Gayle. "Newcastle has a massive fan base and a great history so it is amazing to be here. "I can't wait to get started, prove myself and score the goals that take us back up to the Premier League. It's where this Club belongs." Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez added: "Dwight is a great player, a proven goalscorer, and it is fantastic news that he has joined us. "He has a big personality, a lot of energy and pace. He is a good finisher also, so he will add goals to our squad, for sure. "He knows English football well, too, and that is important in the Championship. "I am sure Dwight will want to prove he can make a big difference to our team and I am looking forward to working with him." Welcome to Newcastle!
  20. Two of the great players of my lifetime. Who was the greatest?
  21. http://www.themag.co.uk/2017/03/daryl-murphy-calf-injury-confirmed-scan-newcastle-united/ This could be a big blow to us with Gayle not yet up to speed & Murphy the preferred option over Mitrovic let's hope the scan doesn't show reveal anything serious.
  22. Signing tomorrow according to various sources. Know nothing about him but looks strong and determined. 7.5m euro CD/RB "The centre back, who attracted interest from the likes of Atletico Madrid earlier in the summer, is expected to join his team mate Aleksandar Mitrović in swapping Belgium for Benton, as the striker was snapped arriving on Tyneside ahead of a £12.3 million move on Sunday. The terms of 20-year-old Mbemba’s deal are up in the air. Prices ranging between £6 million-£10 million have been rumoured in the press, which would take United’s spending well past the £30 million mark. In the double swoop, United seem to have addressed their two main problem areas, with the now inevitable (surely) sale of Williamson the potential cherry on top of a very sweet cake for Newcastle fans. While Mitrovic’s reputation has gone before him slightly, not too much is known about Mbemba within the ranks of the Toon Army. Although after reading this article, the Congolese international’s potential arrival will be sure to set the appetite. Here’s 10 things every Newcastle United fan should know about Chancel Mbemba…" There’s little doubting the 20-year-old’s strongest position is at centre half. Although, the type of player he is means he is just as comfortable when asked to play at right back. Mbemba, as you will learn in upcoming entries, isn’t the biggest player while his technical ability on the ball and athleticism lends itself to the rigours of being a modern day full back. That ability on the ball, coupled with his defensive nous and eye for danger, means he can also play the holding midfield role when called upon. The Congolese international has flourished in all three positions over in Belgium, which means Untied could use him in a number of ways when he is all signed up and ready to make his first team bow."
