Seems a decent addition on the face of it, hope he gets a chance to show if he improves our defence rather than just being a squad option

Dangerous from set pieces, fairly decent defender, about our level. Think Rafa would make good use of him here, certainly no downgrade on Mbemba other than lacking the versatility.

Post by: Infinitely Content on Wednesday 25 July 2018, 12:01:36 pm
Decent signing if true. Much needed if Lejeune is out for a little while. Hopefully he can join the squad in Portugal so Rafa actually has a chance to work with him. Transfer window remains a shambles regardless tbh.

What are we getting for £3.5m? Are we getting somebody ready to explode on the scene for a bargain price, or are we getting an actual £3.5m player in a market where you should probably be spending six times that amount to get a decent player. #InRafaWeTrust

My Swiss friend said Schar was talked about as the “Swiss Hummels” at Basel. Sounds very alike to Lejuene from what he said. Apparently loves spraying passes also said he’s very good in both boxes in the air but his weakness is quick players running at him also said he had a very good World Cup for them :thup:

unwanted defender moves out, 3rd choice moves down to 4th choice and a new signing to challenge a partnership that has proven to be very solid.

Not fussed on the price. Lejeune proved to be better than similar signings like Hoedt last year despite being cheaper. Schar seems similar to that. If he didn't have a release clause he'd be costing a lot more.

The problem isn't this kind of signing, it's that we aren't doing enough of this kind of signing. We should have used Hayden wanting to leave to replace him with another midfielder to challenge our main two
Title: Re: Fabian Schär
Post by: Odin on Wednesday 25 July 2018, 12:44:03 pm
That’s about what we paid for Sissoko. Many players go under the radar, let’s not assume he’s s*** until we’ve seen him play a few times.

Not fussed about the small spend if we're actually bringing players in. We fell away mid season last year because we had no adequate cover for injuries, suspensions etc..

Our strongest 11 can compete with most of the clubs in this league, so it’s going to be a matter of seeing how many games we can manage that (playing our strongest 11..)

We have an established pairing at centre back that is very good.

We just signed an international that played in the world cup to come in as the third centre back and challenge the two that start.

Why would anyone wonder how far down the list he is? Who exactly where you guys expecting to come in as a third centre back?

Looks a really good signing to me. Certainly more than I was expecting for that position. All things considered.

Some people are just happy with anything. We should be buying a lad to play alongside the captain and push Lejeune down thats what majes squad's better There's no way Rafa has thought hey the lad I really want is that Schar who is at Deportivo La Coruna. This so smacks of desperation

I feel like because other clubs are throwing money around, every move that isn't a big fee is now ridiculed.

It''s just not right to look at things that way.

I mean look at Lascelkes and LeJeune who we all love now. What did they cost?

I can see both sides TBH, we know that Rafa isn't signing the players he really wants but at the same time he is bringing in some players that are really useful.

If he's third choice and we're not selling Lascelles this seems like a decent signing. But even as I say that I'm sure I'm falling prey to reduced expectations. It's not easy being an NUFC fan under Ashley.

We just need to get him the numbers he needs and we'll be good.

It''s not ideal that we cannot get him his top options, but I don't think all the player's we are getting are going to be completely useless either.

I am still excited to see what Rafa can do even in these conditions.

You're an absolute divvy.

Sell a centre half for £5-6m. Buy another who arguably is little to no improvement and does not significantly improve the first team for £3.5m, thus (Ashley) pocketing a couple of mil change (we'll never see).

You wouldn't mind if it was an isolated example, and yes it is an OK business dealing, but we're still in the EXACT same position we were in before Mbemba left.

So yes, let's not spend any money - look what Stoke done and it clearly didn't work out for them! Thank the lord Mike Ashley is here to stop us from making their mistakes by keeping the money for himself! 3 cheers for Mike! You absolute divvy.

I'm with KaKa on this. Lejeune has had one season and was pretty big signing (8 million or what?), so of course this is a backup player who is pretty good and plays regularly for the Swiss. I am happy with this one, hopefully we get at least one striker and one or two midfielder still.

I'm not a divvy. I'm just thinking rationally.

We are not in the same position because Rafa did not rate/trust Mbemba at centre back, and clearly did not want to use him there.

He now has a 4th centre back he will actually use and who he likes no matter where he is on his list.

Why do people want to go out and spend a lot of money on a position where we are so stable.

This is ridiculous.

It's not about spending money on this deal, this deal is OK if viewed in isolation - the reality is that it's a typical Newcastle signing and why on earth should anyone be even remotely appeased by this? We're still getting the p*ss took out of us here.
Title: Re: Fabian Schär set for medical at NUFC
Post by: ponsaelius on Wednesday 25 July 2018, 01:20:36 pm
Like I said in the other thread I've seen quite a lot of him for the national team. He's good in the air and decent on the ball. Likes to play long raking passes like Lejeune. Also a big threat from set pieces usually. There was a spell during qualifying for the last Euros where he was scoring every other game.

That said, he's not the quickest and a card magnet. H missed the last 16 game against Sweden due to a daft yellow, which ultimately cost them a quarter final place when Djourou came in. Probably this is the reason there's not more teams interested.

Personally I think it's both a decent gamble at 3.5m, but also a reflection of how pathetic we are.

Not comparable... Sissoko had 6 months left on his contract, we bought him early and cheap to get him straight away rather than in the summer.

Looks a really good signing to me. Certainly more than I was expecting for that position. All things considered.

Some people are just happy with anything. We should be buying a lad to play alongside the captain and push Lejeune down thats what majes squad's better There's no way Rafa has thought hey the lad I really want is that Schar who is at Deportivo La Coruna. This so smacks of desperation

Its like wanting to buy a Ferrari and having to make do with a Vauxhall Corsa

Okay. You're certainly entitled to your opinion. We'll see how it all plays out.

When we finish above Fulham, Wolves, Brighton et al. I will come for you!

When Stoke were splashing the money last summer it sure did look impressive, but it all meant nothing in the end.

We will see.

You're an absolute divvy.

Sell a centre half for £5-6m. Buy another who arguably is little to no improvement and does not significantly improve the first team for £3.5m, thus (Ashley) pocketing a couple of mil change (we'll never see).

You wouldn't mind if it was an isolated example, and yes it is an OK business dealing, but we're still in the EXACT same position we were in before Mbemba left.

So yes, let's not spend any money - look what Stoke done and it clearly didn't work out for them! Thank the lord Mike Ashley is here to stop us from making their mistakes by keeping the money for himself! 3 cheers for Mike! You absolute divvy.

I'm not a divvy. I'm just thinking rationally.

We are not in the same position because Rafa did not rate/trust Mbemba at centre back, and clearly did not want to use him there.

He now has a 4th centre back he will actually use and who he likes no matter where he is on his list.

Why do people want to go out and spend a lot of money on a position where we are so stable.

This is ridiculous.

It's called improving the squad and creating better competition for places. The top teams are also stable as you say in these positions but do you see them getting bargain basement signings as cover..no

It's because if an injury or suspension or losd of form happens they need someone equally as competent to step in

Your rationale is staggering

You and your lists man. My goodness :lol:

What am I missing? Isn't that what Rafa has said?

Nope. Rafa has said nothing about where anyone is on his list.

Yes. But Rafa has said that the more time passes the harder it is to get the players at the top of his list.

Not sure what's wrong or funny with him wondering how far down this guy was?

We have an established pairing at centre back that is very good.

We just signed an international that played in the world cup to come in as the third centre back and challenge the two that start.

It's not really the biggest problem tbh, CB is probably the least of our worries, we have far more important positions we need to upgrade on.

Post by: Odin on Wednesday 25 July 2018, 01:40:53 pm
Lascelles and Lejeune are a good pairing, so it would take a significantly better CB to dismantle that. We ain’t in the market for that..

We had a very good player who couldn’t be arsed learning a few words of English to help his team communicate with him on the pitch. So he didn’t play and wouldn’t have played this season barring a total emergency.

This guy has plenty of experience and is still young enough. He’s also physically suited to this league.

Don’t see what the problem is.

Not sure what sort of CB we were expecting mind. It was always going to be someone like this to replace a 4th choice defender. It’s not a Cabaye out/Colback in situation. Unless Lascelles goes...then it’s a Cabaye out/Colback in situation.

It is or was our least weakest area, but with Mbemba moving on we know Rafa likes to have cover for every position. Anything over the cost of what we got for Mbemba and he wouldn’t be arriving. Basically just a continuation of our ridiculous transfer policy and t constraints in which Rafa has to work under when it comes to money to spend on he team.

Obviously improves the team because he's just turned three CB's into 4 CB's in contention. He has more positional awareness than Mbemba and better in the air. I was impressed with him in the World Cup, one of the reasons Switzerland were not so easy to beat. May prove to be the best passer from the back.

We will see in time..

Anyway, I remember he reminded me of Stevie Taylor. Take of that what you will  :saylor:

Been watching some videos of him, I find those clips where they show a players every involvement in a single match a decent way to get a basic understanding of how a player operates in game - at least more so than highlight reels.

He seems very intelligent in that he reads the game well, stepping out to stop danger before it builds momentum. In the game I watched (Basel v Chelsea) he was constantly looking for long passes forward - diagonals into the channels and was successful more often than not. He was also taking free kicks from deep meaning he is trusted as a good passer of the ball. The one negative I noticed was him overplaying slightly at times and giving away short passes in congested areas, but the fact he was willing to try means he trusts his footballing ability and wants to get involved which bodes well.

Definitely a ball-playing/playmaking centre back. Quite excited by him, tbh.

Hard to find fault with Mbemba out and Schar in whilst turning a few million profit in the process when you look at it in isolation. Mbemba wasn't going to make any contribution this season realistically and this lad almost certainly will, in some ways he's like an extra free player. The lad hasn't had any say in the low fee and he's presumably buzzing at the move and every single one of us want him to settle and do well.

That said, it's f***ing pathetic that we need to sell to buy first. It's a ridiculous situation to be in and complete bullshit. Pleading poverty while the rest of the other clubs in the top flight go and get the players they want to push on. They want to progress, they want to get better and they're prepared to spend to so it. With us everything is just "that'll do". Absolutely f***ing sick of it man.  :dave:

Newcastle United sign Fabian Schär

Newcastle United have completed the signing of Swiss international Fabian Schär on a permanent deal from Deportivo La Coruña.

The defender – who has signed an initial three-year contract – becomes the Magpies’ fourth acquisition of the summer, following the permanent arrivals of Martin Dúbravka and Ki-Sung Yeung and the loan capture of Kenedy.

Schär played in three of his country’s four games at the recent World Cup in Russia, helping the Swiss to progress from Group E – along with Brazil – before missing their last-16 defeat to Sweden through suspension.

He made 25 appearances for Deportivo in La Liga last season, having moved to the Spanish outfit from 1899 Hoffenheim a year ago.

The 26-year-old said: “I’m really happy to be here. The club is a really big club for me. It has a big name, and it is a brilliant chance for me.

“I’m not like a typical defender. I, of course, defend, but I’m quite good with the ball – I like to play, I want to build up the game from behind, and I think that is a strength of mine. I have also scored some headers – that could also be a strength and hopefully I can use it here.

“I hope to start training with the team soon, and I’m looking forward to everything that’s coming. At the moment, I just want to get started.”

Manager Rafa Benítez added: “I’m really pleased to welcome Fabian to Newcastle United. He is an international, did well in the World Cup and has great experience.

“He adds competition in this position and that is a positive for the team.”

Schär – who has played 42 times for Switzerland all told – started out with hometown club Wil 1900 before linking up with Champions League regulars Basel in 2012, where he helped the RotBlau to a hat-trick of Swiss Super League titles.

He has already had a taste of playing at St. James’ Park, having turned out for the Swiss against Gabon in the 2012 Olympics’ football tournament.​

My Depor supporting mate rates him and he usually doesn't even refer to defenders as footballers.

Said he's a very good passer and overall a reliable defender. Not very powerful but often wins headers. He started well at Deportivo but towards the middle of the season made several stupid mistakes and apparently it affected his confidence. Said he was probably their best defender but it's difficult to judge how good he really is, because their whole team had an awful season :lol:

Really like this guy's profile as a player. Still young enough for a centre back to improve too.

Think it will prove to be a really good signing in a similar vein to LeJeune, but at an even greater value for money.

Hard to find fault with Mbemba out and Schar in whilst turning a few million profit in the process when you look at it in isolation. Mbemba wasn't going to make any contribution this season realistically and this lad almost certainly will, in some ways he's like an extra free player. The lad hasn't had any say in the low fee and he's presumably buzzing at the move and every single one of us want him to settle and do well.


Pretty much exactly what I was thinking. In fact, I'm quite happy with Mbemba out and Schar in. We don't need a starting centre half ("wanting a Ferrari" was a f***ing immensely s*** analogy btw) and now Clark has been pushed down by a guy who seems able to step in and start when needed.

Whilst we obviously need starters, we've proved we can sign more than one player at a time, so upgrading the team (while making a profit and freeing up wages) can only be positive, and we don't have to worry that Charnley is taxing himself.

And before anyone starts, the only reason I care about profit and wages is because I hang on to the desperate hope that, by scraping coppers together, Rafa will fashion us a miracle. And this transfer is a (tiny) step towards that.

He's been given a number straight away. Odd as usually we don't give them one till we announce the squad list.

because we're not signing anyone else who is going to take the #5 shirt, is the obvious answer, and none of the current are switching.

I honestly thought Lejeune would take it.

I think most of our summer signings have potential which hasn't really been that evident so far, maybe because of our difficult start in the Premier, partly down to getting used to how we set up under Rafa which probably needs some getting used to. Just got to look at Lejeune's shaky start last season but he looked pretty class in the second half of the season.

When I've seen him he looks a bit slow, but could same the same for Lejuene and he looked very strong the second half of last season. Think he'll be fine if he gets a run of games. Ideally instead of Clark.

Exactly the kind of centre-half we've been missing since Lejeune got injured. Lascelles and Fernandez have both largely defended well this season, it's just their distribution is often lacking. Today Schar actually allowed us to move from defence into midfield without it being an aimless clip down the line by one of our full backs.

Agreed, Yedlin would do an equal if not better job if played in the same position. Plus you know he could track back if required.

If we signed a decent RB it would be interesting to see how Yedlin would fare as an all out attacking threat.. his pace would give defenders nightmares.

The most Ritchie does is charge down the right, do a little pirouette and then either play the ball back to defenders or to Shelvey (right beside the defenders)

He’s played one decent cross all season. Not good enough for a winger. Always have the feeling he’s going to get a booking every time he goes for the ball too.

He’s got that aggressive short man syndrome going on and no amount of s*** haircuts will cover up the fact.

Ritchie has put in plenty of quality crosses this season, in amongst plenty of poor crosses. He’d be a lot more productive if we had strikers that made strikers’ runs.

Yedlin, on the other hand has terrible delivery (I would argue Dummett has a better cross) and also wouldn’t get the space he is afforded making forward runs as a right back, if played on the wing. I think any effectiveness he has would be nullified.

Aye, this.

Dummett has put in a few very good crosses this season, Yedlin often over hits them, it's really an area he needs to work on as he's very good at getting into the position to deliver. Ritchie however is certainly the best crosser of the ball out of the three mentioned players.

Yedlin has more assists and key passes than Paulie D this season, as he did last.

Whilst his delivery is generally not the best he is absolutely vital to how we attack.

Getting back on topic, I was impressed with Schär but that 45 mins is not enough to go on. Calling for him to be a first choice is a little premature IMO. From what I’ve heard and read he usually has a rick in him.

If that 45mins is a good representation of how he plays, I can see how he may be prone to making errors. He was very aggressive in trying to get to the ball first and he also was aggressive in bringing the ball out of defensive and then making a move forward off the ball. Whilst he played very well and everything came off, those sort of players will obviously eventually make a few f*** ups.

As far as I’m aware it is. Tbh I quite like that type of defender but it’s usually the kind that struggles at first in PL as the physicality is a bit more so they can get turned as they try to nip infront of their man. Coloccini and Koscielny being two that spring to mind that needed to learn this.

It wasn’t! He played some lovely passes along the ground while we continued to keep possession.

He’s a little bit shaky when dealing with pacey players but otherwise he’s brilliant. Him and Ki coming in have made the world of difference.

He's getting far too much stick relative to others. We've lost once since Lascelles got injured, hadn't won before that yet Schar's getting called a liability at the back.

Notice he had to cover for the horribly out of shape Lascelles tonight a fair bit.

Fullbacks are the modern day wingers though, so it's not easy to pick up a good one for peanuts. Liverpool did exceptionally well to get Robertson for £8m - he's probably a £50m player now.

I'm sure it's possible to get better than Manquillo for £4-5m but not much better

We have a perfect set up right now with him and Lejeune the two footballing centre-halves who can advance forward, pass and spread play either side of the good old fashioned no-nonsense centre half in Lascelles. Harsh on Fernandez who seemed undroppable earlier in the campaign but you just can't break up that three on our current run.

How many goals have been conceded at set pieces though over the season (the worst in the Premier) even gainst Burnley there was two occasions when they could and probably should have scored. For three big lads they really hould be dominating set pieces. Maybe it's the coaching but it's certainly a problem.

It wasn't just "beaten in the air thought." Rice ran rings around him before the corner was even taken, and Schar lost him, plain and simple. After he lost his man, it wasn't an issue about beating him in the air, it was essentially a free header.

But all good, I love our defence so far. We just need to buckle up on set pieces.

'My skull is still humming' - Newcastle's Schar receives emergency first aid from opponent

Quote
A Switzerland football player knocked out in an aerial clash in a Euro 2020 qualifier received emergency help from a member of rival team Georgia.

Fabian Schaer's head collided with the skull of Georgia's Jemal Tabidze as both went for the ball in the 24th minute of the match in Tbilisi.

Schaer lay unconscious on the ground, his tongue stuck down his throat.

Georgian player Jano Ananidze rushed to his aid, inserting his hand in Schaer's mouth to free the player's tongue.

Schaer recovered quickly after further treatment from Swiss first-aiders, Swiss daily Blick reports, and was able to continue playing, helping set up Switzerland's second-half goals for their 2:0 victory.

"It looks awful. I can't remember anything," the Newcastle player told the paper after being shown video footage. "I was out for a few seconds. My skull is still humming. And I've got neck ache and a bruise on my forehead. But it was worth it."

But maybe some shady managers would ask one of their players whom they intend to sub to go down feigning a head injury to get a free pass and thus potentially gain an unfair advantage with 4 fresh players.

The decision would have to be made by a doctor.

Nothing stopping the player pretending he has a head injury though.

A neurologist will be able to tell the difference.

Could it not be conditional on medical staff inspection based on visible head injury / iris dilation stuff / actually being knocked out though? All those would be difficult to fake.

As you probably know, tomorrow I will not be allowed to play against Denmark. I really wanted to play and, as always, give everything to the team and Switzerland, but unfortunately this time the decision is not in my hands, but was imposed on me by FIFA for health reasons. In the game against Georgia I was unconscious for a short time after a collision. Anyone who knows me knows how I feel and how much I would like to play.
Of course I keep my fingers crossed for the team and I'm convinced that we will make a good game.

Him, Jamaal and Lejeune are one of the best made back 3's ever. Fernandez can deputise Jamaal and Clark and Dummett for Lejeune. I think we need to offload one of Clark or Dummett and replace with someone who can play on the right side.

The player I’d love to see us add to the collection is N’Soki.

I've been critical of Schar's defending before, but that's quality. I note that it doesn't include when Maddison schooled him, but it was still a very impressive performance. He's proven to be more than an okay defender with a great pass

He’s an agressive defender and when he gets it right he’s f***ing quality. Love that about him to be honest. His interceptions are brilliant because he’s always looking to counter fast and has ball skills to get us going very quickly.

It's probably the case that if Benitez stays, Schar will and probably Lascelles too. Must be a dream as a defender to work under the organisation of Rafa, far less chance to be exposed. The best defenders in the world can easily look poor if constantly exposed by those in front of them.

Possibly the classiest CB in the Premier League at the moment. Defensively he's great, his passing is ridiculous, he's skillful and he has a rocket of a shot on him.
I struggle to think of another CB in the league who has all of those attributes?  The only other one that springs to mind is David Luiz.
Title: Re: Fabian Schär
Post by: The College Dropout on Tuesday 16 April 2019, 05:12:41 pm
An excellent CB for a back 3.  Defensively one of his greatest attributes is his aggression which is much riskier in a back 2.

If he maxes his potential, he will be too good for a Mike Ashley team. 
Title: Re: Fabian Schär
Post by: The College Dropout on Tuesday 16 April 2019, 05:14:19 pm

He’d be absolutely perfect for a club like PSG and their league.

He would look even better on the ball in a 70% possession side where the opposition drop back and don’t press the centre backs.

I think most the Top sides would benefit having a player with the skill set that Schar has who can bring the ball out and start the moves :thup:
