Is signing cassano.

Newcastle United are ready to take Antonio Cassano off the hands of Real Madrid.

 

Cassano declared last week that he'd made a mistake in joining Real and has made an open plea to former club AS Roma to re-sign him in January.

 

The News of the World says Toon chiefs are weighing up a sensational move for the £11 million-rated firebrand, who was banished from the first team squad last week after blowing up at coach Fabio Capello.

Though it doesn't really say much and we ARE linked to hundreds of these kind of transfer bs every day, a huge player coup might be evident in Freddy's last ditch attempt to please the fans...

Yet another overpaid tosser who'll notice quickly (like Martins) how lucrative it is to be on the sick at Newcastle

Dyer loves it so much he refuses to come off the sick..... blueupset.gif

He has bad attitude in clubs like Roma and Real Madrid, which he supports.. In here he would be mega-bad attitude as he undoubtedly doesn't give a shite about Newcastle, just wants to collect big wage.

 

Canny player though.

He didn't like managers pissing him about, like Roeder has done to Luque it seems...

 

He was a massive fan of Capello and they have managed to fall out, which doesn't look good.

 

Very good player, but a poor attitude, he would be 10 times the player he is now without that attitude.

Guest The gaffer

He wasn't excatly in charge of the f00kin purse strings was he....... Any idiot can see that roeder was told to live with the squad he had, hence the last minute loan deal....
