Kante is shorter than Colback, height is irrelevant

How highly rated is this guy? How much are we paying for him

Literally never heard of him, other than the recent links.
Sir Bobby Robson: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

He's about as useful a striker as Gouffran I know that, as a midfielder I've no idea doubt he's the solution to our many problems though

To be fair Gouffran would have been much better used here as a striker, at least he can score goals when played their consistently, he's pointless in midfield.  Why he never got a go up front when we were playing f***ing Shola there I'll never know, then again :pardsbeard:

As far as Saivet, never seen him play but apparently he's a quick, powerful defensive midfielder and has been one of the few positives for Bordeaux this season.  Also their captain so hopefully he could be a commanding presence in central midfield.  Fee seems to be around £4.5m.

He played against us twice in the Europa a few years ago. Was highly rated as a teenager thinking back to Fm days :lol:

Played CM for the last season or two. Nailed on we being him in and play him wide.

He's not just going to come in and be made captain obviously.  But hopefully he can show some kind of leadership in midfield (if we sign him of course) because we've got none at the moment.

Another unproven from the french leagues. My excitement is struggling to be contained.

Inside a world where Jack Colback doesn't automatically start every game for us.

What a time to be alive that would be :sweetjesus:

He'll be s***, everything we touch turns to s***.

On other hand if he's mobile, athletic and defensively sound he would be an upgrade on our centre midfield, height would be handy but able to cover the ground and tackle more important in centre mid for me - If he's remotely intelligent (Although doubtful if he wants to sign here) and tactically astute even better.

Welcome to the right wing son, bye Moussa see you at Palace in 2 years time.

He probably will start just on left wing or left back. The Ginger Joker is here forever

I've never seen him at left back, but heard he wasn't horrendous at Sunderland when used there. Should we be scared?

Well, I've seen this guy like twice and he looked alright to me. Not sure how he handles this next step should he officially join us but our midfield engine needs something because we sure as hell have to try something new or we're dropping.

Strengths:
Aerial duals
Tackling
Defensive contribution
Holding on to the ball (sounds like Tiote that)

Sounds promising defensively.

Yep. I would rather we signed someone experienced and proven in CM but let's face it, we're Newcastle.

Nothing we have done in central midfield has worked. Will these work? No clue but f*** sake something needs to change.

We should have tried a 433 by now but for some reason he just hasn't

4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 the numbers really dont make that much of difference tbh. The players are not good enough.

I still don't think we'll do very well with Wijnaldum and Sissoko in their weird pseudo-positions, but a decent midfield would help.

My guess is:

         Mitro/Austin
Perez - Wijnaldum - Sissoko
         Shelvey - Saivet

He'll be called a "beast" soon, as with any other big black midfielder.

Big, white midfielder like Shelvey gets s*** labels like "enforcer"

Yeah pretty much sums up my thoughts on the current situation.
