No Debuchy move in January, says Debuchy

Mathieu Debuchy.
Debuchy: No January move.
Any fading hope of another Newcastle United transfer move for Lille full-back Mathieu Debuchy in the forthcoming January transfer window were seemingly extinguished by the player himself in one of his most recent press conferences.

Speaking on the forthcoming January transfer window, the silly haired Frenchman had this to say:

“I will not be leaving the team in the middle of the championship, I don’t like the Winter transfer window,”

However he then started to tease potentially interested parties once again by saying:

“In the future you never know what can happen. I prefer not to think about it.”

Speaking of a conference with the Lille leaders after his potential transfer in the Summer, the slightly petulant, attention seeking full back then added:

“I saw the leaders of the club in the Summer. They’re were some things I liked and others I didn’t.

Whatever.

After all the acrimony and accusations of the Summer, any potential deal with the Magpies was probably unlikely anyway with Newcastle United steadfastly refusing to pay a fair price. Instead, their tactics seemed to consist of trying to unsettle the player until he forced his current club into letting him go at the cut price fee they wanted. When that failed, Newcastle United’s managing Director Derek Llambias then accused the Lille directors of misleading the club over the price he was available for, which was hardly great diplomacy. Besides that, the opportunity of joining a club which could be embroiled in a relegation battle by the New Year probably wouldn’t hold much appeal for Debuchy either, or any other ambitious overseas player wanting to make an impression in the Premiership for that matter.

    Thats a good point worky. By the time we’ve faced the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal over xmas, we’ll probably be even lower in the table than we are now so even if Ashley did want to stick his hand in his pocket in January, how many good players would want to come if we look like we’re in a death spiral?

    sammy d, if we are still in shit street in January (and I can’t see a way out soon with the teams we have to play now), who would WANT to come???? We all know that Ashley isn’t going to pay big fees and wages as a sweetener, and all the other clubs will know that we’re desperate so Ashley won’t get his bargains (again). It’s another storm brewing like a few seasons ago unless we get a miracle soon

  4. Armageddon aside,i believe a win against Wigan (emphatic maybe?) could be just what we need.
    It may just be enough to ignite a flame and extinguish some gloom…….,who knows?
    i truly thought we were gonna beat Stoke and we weren’t far off albeit a great goal,pen,mistake.
    (Fingers crossed)

  5. Toontony: I was at the disco casino until about 6am. Jerry lost about 2 grand and wasn’t too happy :)

    The strangest thing was that he called his wife from the car and woke her up at 6am.

  6. You never know,we may just beat wigan,the do conceed goals,silly ones thr type we do,should be fair….

    “Sorry lads I’ll try to be more cheerful next time. I have a bit of a hangover this morning!”

    I think that most people on here are miserable bastards anyway Tony, including me.

  8. I’ve just been listening to a very interesting piece about the linguistic phenomenon of “proximal assimilation,” or in other words, what Schteve McClaren and Joey Barton did in their interviews in the Netherlands and France.

    We ALL do it so we shouldn’t laugh too much. :lol:

  9. With our two best players out, Cabaye and HBA, there goes any creativity in midfield.
    We will miss Taylor throwing his body around in defense.
    Gosling appears to be a sick note.
    Who knows about Abeid and Amalfitano, they never get a game.
    Bigi., has a future as a Tiote clone, but aint quite ready.
    Tiote is trying, but with his style and rep.is going to end up carded.
    What are we gonna do with Jonas, a waste on the wing, when we have Ferguson and Marveaux, who needs game practice, guess jonas’s his natural role is DM.
    Obertan, is inconsistent, but also needs match practice.
    When will it become apparent that our two Senagalese strikers just cant play to-gether, niether willing to play in a support role, which by the way Shola excells in.
    Santon certainly catches the eye with his constant foreys upfield, but needs cover and young Ferguson, a converted LB is happy enough to provide.
    Could be the new and younger Jonas and Enrique like pairing.
    If we are going to lose Simpson, we will need a replacement, or shift Santon to RB and bring in a decent LB.
    We could also use a right winger as i doubt if Obertan will cut it.
    Think Anita has turned out decent, is a good utility player, but looks better as a central midfielder, do i think he was worth seven million, nah !
    Perch has his on and off games depending on where he’s played, again better in midfield, certainl no CD or FB.
    Sammy, flatters to decieve, has great moves, but has to try for consistency.
    Guess everyone is aware of my views on Williamson.
    Ditto Raylor.
    Collo. is his usual self, you dont get chosen for Argentina if you cant play.
    There are others, none yet EPL class.
    It’s a small squad, to be playing in the EPL and Europe, but its all we got ?

    I suppose you’re right when I think about it worky. You can’t blame us being Toon fans though! :-)

    Yes i agree, we all, at least those of us who travel, tend to lean to-wards the local vernacular and a near perfect example are football players, both natives of the UK and foreigners.
    Both who’s accents can be effected by the region, either through time or in the learning process.
    Another example is the fact depending on where and by which method one learns a second language, which may very well turn out to be recognised as regionally accented.
    For instance i have a friend who speaks fluent Spanish, but is laughed at by those, say Columbian or Argentine Spanish speakers for his obvious Puerto Rican accented cadence and pronunciation.
    Actuall Linguistics is a fascinating subject, taught by some one we both respect at MIT.
    I,m constantly surprised at the veriety of accents and dialects used in the UK.
    Wondering if in fact if there are any accentless areas in the country.
    Of course there are certain accents shared by those of certain classes, actually more dialects, than accents.
    I also surprisingly find, that cetain non English people, say Scandanavians or those from northern european countries, speak almost a form of accentless English, as a second language, cetainly purer than any spoken by the English themselves.
    Then of course there’s the constant onslought of American English, through film and TV, which has had it’s effect on both pronunciation and termiology, ball park figures and stepping up to the plate.
    But then thats the strength of the english language, it absorbs terms from many languages, Irish, Indian,French etc.
    Fascinating !
