Two ‘serious’ bids in for players

Words by Kevin Doocey on .

Stéphane M’Bia - One bid in for him

The latest news coming from Kinnear is that Ashley has given funds to him after the emergency meeting and that Kinnear and the team have two serious bids in for players. We like the sound of this, especially after tonight’s defeat to Hull at home. The game tonight indeed outlined the lack of numbers at Newcastle and it comes as a nice surprise to hear that we’ve the bids in. Stéphane M’Bia will not come for £4m though as the recruitment team may think, if he does however it would be a steal. Everton again have been long admirers of him. Kinnear did not exactly say that M’Bia was his target but his interview with Sky Sports may indicate this, just a little bit 😀

Joe said:

_‘We’ve made two serious £4million bids for two players and we’ll probably end up spending £10million,’ said Kinnear.

‘We’re waiting to hear on them.’

‘He’s from Cameroon, is a 6ft 2in midfielder and we’re waiting to hear back from his club.’_

The most important fact is that Kinnear has been given funds by Mike Ashley after a long deliberation. More to report on tomorrow as the targets and rumours just keep coming.

Comments appreciated  😀

This is great news for the club, and full credit must be given here to Mike Ashley. For all the turbulance he has had to deal with over the past few months, the fact he is still pouring money into the club, when he easily could of left the club considering the circumstances and leave us in a much worse position now, its clear to see that Newcastle fans should be thanking him insteadof vicitimising him over the past few months. Although I'm not saying his handlings into these sorry affairs have been fault free, he has not made too many errors, and I think the way the majority of the fans have treated him have been wrong. Anyway, in regards to the two £4 million bids, the fact one of them is a central midfielder is very good, considering the chance Geremi may leave the club. However, I do hold a slight anxiety about these players, as we bid £5.75 million for Xisco in the summer and it seems to be an overpriced amount, from what I have seen of him over his few months stay. I really wish though we would make a bid for John Arne Riise. He is still a very good full back, one of the positions Newcastle need to fill, as well as posing a great attacking nature, and at around £3 million, he should be one of our main priorities. However, whether the rumours speculating around the newspapers as to Joe Kinnear's interest are anything more than rumours, we will have to see.
