Will Maiga make a deadline day move to Newcastle?

Sky Sports are at least partially responsible for turning transfer deadline day into the circus that it is currently.

They will no doubt have reporters camped outside training grounds around the country and Jim White will no doubt be fizzing about how the transfer window is “marvellous entertainment”.

Ask Newcastle fans about that!

David Craig will be somewhere looking dazed, confused and a little bit like an older version of Tim nice but Dim from the Harry Enfield program. It’s going to be another mad one for sure.

But if you can’t beat them, join them is how the saying goes. That is why we’ll be running a live transfer ‘blog from around 11am to right up until the transfer window slams shut at 11pm tomorrow evening so we can keep you up to speed with the goings on, rumours and any transfer titbits that happen to come to our attention.

Of course there is still a chance that we could see some players arrive at Newcastle on deadline day. It’s more based on hope on my part as the form book suggests that I should be watching the ‘out’ door and not the ‘in’ door, but if you haven’t got a bit of hope then what are you left with? Here’s hoping we manage to keep hold of our key players. Quite simply we’ve lost enough of them recently.

So all you have to do is turn on, tune in to us and let us take the strain out of deadline day. You can even bookmark the page so you can go away and do something (like work, maybe?) and come back a bit later to see what has happened and what has failed to happen. Or both.

We look forward to seeing you here on NUFC Blog

    @ Toonsy If you think your servers are bad when the matchday happen, wait till tomorrow’s deluge…

    Fair point on Marveaux, strange one perhaps they hired Llambias as their transfer consultant for the day…

    I expect Manchester United striker Federico Macheda to go nufc on loan.

    Maiga deal to nufc most probably off due to this.>>> Leeds United have rejected Sochaux’s bid for Max Gradel. Sochaux chairman Alexander Lacombe has said: “This case is closed now.”

    Then as for LB. Santon to be reveil on deadline transfer day.

    Then that’s it i presume. :cool: Macheda and Santon. Maybe another LB might come in.

    As for Muntari this is what his representative said.>>>>Spurs and Fulham are chasing Inter Milan midfielder Sulley Muntari, according to the player’s European representative. “Tottenham and Fulham are several of the Premier League teams that are interested,” Claudio Mossio said. “But right now his destination is not unclear.” Full story

    where the hell has santon gone lol lol????? also, i think not much chance of a striker now from all accounts. i will be happy with a good LB in now i guess.. its the usual crap, last day of window panic stations. jokers..
    It would not be so pathetic but the berths we are trying to fill are long standing obvious ones…this should have been a no brainer and been wrapped up in time for pre season if we are honest.

    AndrewT says:

    Nah, DJG. That’s spurs’ line. ;-)

    Very excited to get santon in. Can’t remember who said it, but the idea of having him cover left for now while ferguson gets up to speed and then to take the right side could make for some beautiful attacking football at some point!

    Just waiting for the eternal doom merchants to arrive and start slagging off this deal.

    Just need Sturridge and Van Anholt from Chelsea. Then we would have had a pretty good transfer window.

    It’s easy to just sit and say we won’t do this, we won’t do that, Ashley, Owl Heed Whaa, whaa….

    I don’t think there is one person who wouldn’t jump for joy if the both left, especially owl heed, but to constantly moan about it must be getting tiresome by now.

    Still gutted about Pieters not coming off though.

    dont think we will be spending any serious money on a top class striker, would have happened by now! free agents, loan signings and youngsters who as soon as they become half decent will be sold to help finance fattys other business ventures and obscene gambling adictions!!! we are going nowhere very very fast. will be relieved if and when we amass another 33 points!!! SOOOO hope im wrong. HWTL.

  57. 57

    Wait, now it says full back. Maybe I read it wrong.

    18.22 Lyon have signed full-back Mouhamadou Dabo from Sevilla on a four-year deal. OL confirmed: “The transfer fee is one million euros, with €800,000 of possible incentives.”

    hitman says:

    asim,why should we be thankfull to ashley….
    its not his money we are soending its the clubs…
    ashley has done nowt.
    the jose money has went into buying santon..

    where is the judas money

  59. 59
    Rodzilla says:

    Asim, I think all Craig was saying (apart from the insults) was we’ve just replaced what we already had a week ago, so aren’t THAT much better off.

    We do still need a Left Back and Striker, bare minimum. I think that’s easy for all to see.

    Probably nothing of note from Lyon:

    PARIS, Aug 30 (Reuters) – Olympique Lyon have signed French defender Mouhamadou Dabo from Sevilla on a four-year deal, the Ligue 1 club said on Tuesday.
    “The transfer fee is one million euros ($1.45 million), with 0.8 million of possible incentives,” Lyon said in a statement.
    Dabo, 24, can play as a left or right fullback.
    Lyon added that his arrival would help the club deal with the possible departure of Lamine Gassama. (Reporting by Julien Pretot, editing by Pritha Sarkar)

    AndrewT says:

    Who the hell is Lamine Gassama? Could it make room for us to still bring in cissokho?? Yea, it could. Waiting and waiting…

    No effing idea, Andrew. Probably meaningless.

  71. 71
    Rodzilla says:

    JiggaJoe, probably still Maiga. If so it will go down to the wire, with Sochaux waiting until Leeds accept their improved bid for Gradel. I can see it still happening. I reckon Macheda on loan will be the backup plan. Probably completely wrong like.

    Rodzilla says:

    ….I’ll check back later to see what you’ve called me anyway Asim. What joy. You don’t do yourself many favours. If you have a differing opinion try to just express it without the insults, it’s a vicious circle. And if you really must name call, try to specifically direct it to someone, or you just wind up many through the scatter technique. Your blood pressure must be through the roof mate.

    asim says:

    whats up..this is the shit ashley has 2 put up with..100 times worse…so put youself in his shoes…i wouldtnt buy any1…he is still buying players isnt he…its his club..nobody else is..apart from the fans who support newcastle…

  78. 78
    craig chisholm says:

    ASIM… selling Jose and buying Santon = moving club forward???
    Selling Carroll and bringing in er… no-one = moving club forward??
    Selling Barton and bringing in no-one= moving club forward??
    You are the exact kinda supporter that ashley wants…happy little mushrooms……..kept in the dark and fed on shit but loving it all the same. Good for you kid, just wait til you get out of pre school and get a few reality checks in life.

    Zoë Vicarage says:

    I’m very happy with Santon, looks like an exciting prospect. Hopefully that striker can be brought in

  80. 80
    AndrewT says:

    Premandup, the kadar story is from the chron and actually worries me a bit. I thought the kid was class, so I have no idea what has happened. He probably needs to start doing yoga to avoid all these damn injuries. Good luck to him.

    Should probably go to the next thread now

  81. 81
    Chris09 says:

    I’m getting sick of people bitching saying we still need a left back. Santon is our new left back. I’ve watched him play before for inter at left back and is brilliant and knows how to use his left foot when needed. I find it a positive having a right footed left back because I’ve seen games where he destroys the wings and gets the ball into the box. A pacy and skillfull player who knows how to defend. Well done pardew

  82. 82
    Zoë Vicarage says:

    New thread up lads :)

  84. 84
    AndrewT says:

    Thank you Chris. People can be so rigid in their foot understandings. The game is evolving. This kid can play well on either side, with him being able to keep players from cutting in on him

  85. 85
    Ahmed4nufc says:

    Must admit I’m delighted that we have signed Santon. I know we have hardly seen the Carroll money but if we can continue to replace those that left, I’ll be happy. We at least need a striker but well done to the club for getting Santon. He really is a bright prospect.

  86. 86
    Shearers Receeding Hairline says:

    I lolled at this tweet on tw@tter. Mackems are in trouble:

    “Sunderland asking for bank guarantees before selling Gyan to Galatasaray or Trabzonspor at loss. Cost €15m, going for €6m + variables. #safc”

    Though I’d rather they stayed afloat for us to pick up 6 points and dish out ritual humiliaions.

    Agent Bruce’s work is nearly complete. Spend a shjt tonne of cash on crap to replace the loanees who kept them afloat last season…..
