Hi folks

A bit off topic:

Put this on your Facebook and ask your UK-based friends to sign it. It won't take a minute.

http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/19149

Tell them to verify the email as well.

Newcastle have signed Papiss Cisse from Freiburg for around £1om. Now, why aren't we signing him?? We need a striker and he's been quality for them for the past few seasons.

Obviously it's because we've lined up Cavani.

Why aren't we getting in there?? £10m?? That's great value!! What's Camolli doing?? Newcastle realise they're losing Ba for the ANC, probably realise they may lose him in the summer and they go straight out for another striker!!

Is this Cisse fella any good?

I didn't see people clamouring for us to sign him up prior to today?

Are people just frustrated we haven't signed a striker yet, so now just want someone, anyone.

Cisse is a risk, even at 10 million. And we really can't afford to take another risk on a striker.

For 10 million, I'd rather we take Defoe.

Al, I think people are more frustrated that Newcastle can go complete a deal for someone like this off the radar with little fuss which seems very good value that very few would have thought about buying. It is the kind of business many of us expected from Comolli.

Huh?

He's 3 years younger and has averaged better than a goal every 2 games for a pretty poor side, as well as being a better all round footballer.

Probably be on less wages too.

This whole secrecy regarding transfers is a myth, we're as transparent as any other club. Aside perhaps from Coates and maybe Bellamy to an extent, everyone else had been heavily linked for a good while prior to moving
