YoanGouffran02 (2)It is widely reported that Yoan Gouffran is now in the north east to complete his medical and once again one person is emerging as vital in our recruitment drive.

Gouffran tweeted yesterday, “Tomorrow I will be a new player of Newcastle and I am proud. Thanks to everyone”.

While Graham Carr and Alan Pardew undoubtedly play their part…it looks increasingly like Yohan Cabaye is the Pied Piper of St.James’ park as he spreads the message that life is great on Tyneside.

RMC Sport have reported the following today;

‘A blow for Bordeaux. Yoan Gouffran makes his way to Newcastle and Matthieu Chalmé, his former playing colleague in Bordeaux, is not surprised to see him go, and even less so towards Newcastle, as he told RMC.

“The players want to experience something else. Cabaye, who is a friend, told me: ‘with Mathieu it’s great, with English facilities, English stadium’. It attracts. Gouffran told me before arriving at Bordeaux that England was attracting him, he has spent many years in Bordeaux.’

If the club fail to bring in enough quality before the start of the season a relegation fight is certain to follow I also think it there's a poor start the fans will turn quickly people have had enough of excuses and want action 34 m in the bank 19 m profit last year + 10m from sales and compensation in January add this to the 60m basis payment the club has just received for next season there's plenty of money the only thing holding us back is willingness to spend big if the powers that be fail to produce the player's required we all know who to blame ASHLEY CHARNLEY MCLAREN and MONCUR

@stephen Richards-sorry to say mate I can't actually read your post as there's absolutely no punctuation in it whatsoever ever! Even a full stop would help! The lack of punctuation puts you off reading it as it doesn't make sense.

We need investment in this window, but doubt it will happen-or they'll bring in a couple of loan players at end of trans window like they've done before. Ashley stated on TV that he will continue to invest in this club-this is pure lies again, as all he's ever done is take finance out (plus assert strip and 'move' it into Mash Holdings) and has never invested at all, if not recently.

Anybody who has renewed their season ticket on the back of believing every word Ashley uttered, bigger fool you! That's what he wants so you're still part of the problem here.

@Phildene You're right, most of the fans are suspicious and cynical towards the motives of Ashley and his chief puppet Charnley.  The other members of "the board"  were purely elevated to that position as a sop to the fans.
