Michael Chopra won’t return to St.James’ Park

Words by Kevin Doocey on .

Michael Chopra

Most of news today has been dominated by Michael Chopra and a possible move back to Newcastle. Whilst everything’s been pretty quiet overall the Sunday Sun always tend to cook something up that makes for interesting reading. I think we all remember the day in the Stadium Of Light when after starting the 2nd half one nil down due to a Justin Hoyte goal, Newcastle fought back and romped to a 4-1 hammering. Included in the scoring was Michael Chopra, only literally seconds after running onto the field. It was the perfect goal for a man who had waited a long time for any chance in the first team.

After moving to Cardiff and ripping up the Championship, Chopra ironically moved to Sunderland on a £5m deal, scoring another memorable winner on the first day of the season at home to Tottenham Hotspurs.

However, he was later shipped back to Cardiff and now he’s reportedly looking for a new club. With Cardiff’s financial problems it’s understood that the Bluebirds could well accept a bid below his valuation just to lower their outstanding tax bill.

To be honest, I can’t see him returning to Newcastle at all this January and somehow I don’t think Chris Hughton is in the hunt for him either. I certainly hope not anyway. I mean, he’s a good finisher but we need to look elsewhere.

Rumours are also suggesting that Marlon Harewood has been offered back to Newcastle on loan with rearranged terms. What the details are, or if even true I really don’t know.

The only one that knows what’s going regards transfers at Newcastle is Chris Hughton, or we certainly hope he does.

Comments welcome 🙂

No to Harewood. yes he scored goals towards the end of his loan but he did nothing at the beginning and what's to say he would not do the same I think he thought because he was on loan from the premier league that he was better than everyone else when he quite clearly wasn't it! Get Simpson sorted his last game will be Wednesday otherwise!

Dont want chopra ,hes shite .Rather have a gamble on Beckford at 2mill .Harewood is a possibility if we dont get Beckford .If Cardiff have financial problems we should get in for ledley and mccormack .

Hi Doocey Quiet indeed today. I cannot see Chopra returning either. Anyone else find it worrying that Lardarse and Lamebrain are heading to Las Vegas? Hmmm - no change there then! So whether anyone will be coming in may depend on the spin of the wheel!!!! So perhaps we should get our crystal ball out for Becks or Harewood. Re Toon Army comment about Cardiff's financial problems - if we are looking at any of the their players I would support Ledley also their young full back Adam Matthews.

Chopra is a traitor and is crap! I reckon we should sell butt and buy beckford and loan out harewood, I mean we might aswell as leeds and aston villa are basically on there knees begging for us to sign them. Although I would like jason scotland to pull on a toon shirt because he is wasting his time at wigan who have dropped some dignity after Bruce leaving them.

Well done Batty. I stuck £1 at HT to even up my account on Espanyol, Deportivo and Athletico Bilbao all to win. 20/1. Needless to say Bilbao couldn't finish their dinner and ended up drawing 1-1. Don't fancy giving me a tenner of your winnings ? :D Haha

GeordieFootSoldier - I think it's widely regarded that Adam Matthews will end up at Arsenal for around £4mil, but not until August. Looks a good prospect, I think Aaron Ramsey will be the main reason, apparently the Ramsey and Matthews families are quite close, so it makes sense. Shame we cant tempt him up to the Toon, he does look a monster of a player. Cheers

Chopra is gone and will be a mistake to bring him back, try for Beck or stick to what we got and get new blood in August to face the PL hopefully.
