RE: Will Ben Arfa Sign For Newcastle

I say yes.

Their chairman said he expected a deal to be done on Tuesday or Wednesday, I'm thinking Thursday or Friday after the France game he'll be sorted on a loan deal.

I say yes.

But what makes you think Hughton has no plan B?

I dare say he has plans B, C, D & E!

I say yes. We just have to get a few more bodies in, the squad as it is is very weak both in numbers and quality and they can't afford to dilly dally around anymore. Howay NUFC get it sorted man.

RE: Will Ben Arfa Sign For Newcastle

I know we play Man Utd on Monday, but even after that, there are two and a bit weeks to bring in new players.

Obviously it would be ideal to get players ahead of the season, but deals always seem to be done towards the end of the window.

RE: Will Ben Arfa Sign For Newcastle

Well these days to get in a player it takes like 48hrs to do a deal one time the manager would talk to the player and bang he is signed..
Amble i think that as well using us to get a better contract towards a team in europe in the prem..

It's the same every season, with the maority of clubs.

I've been surprised that we've actually made 3 decent signings already, and possibly an excellent signing this week. That's well above my expectations.

Clubs don't make players available until they've signed a replacement. At City - Stephen Ireland is probably going to leave, and I'd say a striker will leave - but not until Milner and Balotelli are confirmed.

Then the clubs that sign Ireland and one of Cities strikers will make some of their players available...

And so on...

RE: Will Ben Arfa Sign For Newcastle

Daily Star are running the story that he IS our 4th signing...

..but it's only the Star.

This one suggests Marseille have changed their minds. They don't want to sell both Ben Arfa and Niang, and they must sell Niang to fund their signing of Luis Fabiano.

Fabiano, to Marseille?? Can't see that being true either.

The lack of any confirmation is causing rumours, but he'll be joining up with the French squad surely, so any deal probably won't be confirmed until Thursday at the earliest. I'm guessing.

Yes, so therefore if they had pulled the plug on any deal, they could have said so by now.

The player still has to agree personal terms with us, and to do that, will have to see someone from the club, which should happen in the days after his France match.

No.

L'equipe is saying that todays meeting is off and that Marseille will now try to convince Ben Arfa to stay.

Translation is summat like this...
Ben Arfa finally selected? For l' moment, l' Olympian trainer contains however his nerves, but it could go up well to the crenel in the event of departure d' Hatem Ben Arfa. Announced side of Newcastle, the medium ground could thus finally remain. The Marseilles leaders have d' elsewhere cancelled a programmed meeting this Tuesday in England. It could take place Friday in Marseilles. Three days of respite to convince l' former Lyonese to leave his bags on Canebière.

For now, however, contains Olympian coach's nerves, but it could climb to niche when leaving Hatem Ben Arfa. Announced on the side of Newcastle midfielder could therefore ultimately stay. Leaders Marseille have also canceled a scheduled meeting on Tuesday in England. It could take place Friday in Marseille. Three days' respite to convince the former Lyon leaving his suitcases on the Canebière

RE: Will Ben Arfa Sign For Newcastle

So they're saying the meeting isn't cancelled, but rearranged, to Friday?
Maybe, they heard the President of Marseille say that the deal would be finalised this week, assumed it would be before the france game, got it wrong and are now covering themselves...

All papers are the same. Being French doesn't make them any better than our shite.
According to this, the meeting is on Thursday. Big Grin

He did though.

Berbatov made his own way to Manchester on deadline day, even though he was not given permission to go.

RE: Will Ben Arfa Sign For Newcastle

A lot could depend on Ben Arfas desire to leave. If he wants to leave it will be hard for them to keep hold. I don't think Luis Fabiano will go to Marseille so don't know where that will leave things.

So I think Ben Arfa probably will sign but it might drag on a bit.
