'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Charles N'Zogbia Wants Toon Exit

There is only one little scrap of gossip today and that comes (apparently) directly from Newcastle midfielder Charles N'Zogbia.

The 22-year-old told L'Equipe that his agent is in talks with Villa, Arsenal and Spurs. Expect a denial or a 'misquoted' story any day soon!

Anyway, apparently he was out of the Toon and said:

'I'm at a turning point in my career right now. My agents are talking with Tottenham and Villa and, from what they've told me, Arsenal could also be in the frame. I have a preference for the Gunners, but they are three great clubs.'

Not sure he'll have endeared himself to the Newcastle fans with this sort of quote, as if they haven't got enough on their hands with Mike Ashley and Dennis Wise at the moment!

Kinnear has just said: "I have spoken to Arsene Wenger and he said he's not interested in any of my players, so I don't know where the agent is coming from" so maybe its just us and yids...

He's got a big mouth ala Berger so I don't think MON should get involved but he knows best. Are we going to get a post on the OS confirming or denying his interest now??
Villan444
he would be a good buy.. but knowing M'ON he will come out tomorrow and say that he is not interested....
smokey_jnr
With Shorey apparently free to leave a move for CNZ may be on the cards.

I can fully understand and appreciate why MON would be interested in bringing the young man to Brummagem B6. Possesses a sweet left foot, and is a talented individual from what I've seen, but you would certainly have to question his attitude I would think, not only because of the way he's making his current 'want out' feelings known, but also because of episodes that he's been involved in in the past.
glensider
Wouldn't young Charles be looking for guaranteed first team football, something Martin clearly wouldn't offer him? One of his complaints I understand is lack of regular starting action. Pity Shorey hasn't shown his true colours. A very good left full back, who for some reason just hasn't produced the goods here at Brummagem B6.
glensider
If we did sign him, how would we feel about him clearly preferring a move to Arse? Just get on with it I suppose...
olofthegreat
I know a few Toon fans who would be very sorry to see Charlie Zog leave. Always a good sign I think?
VillaYamYam
Until he left, CharlieYamYam, then they would be on here or the site of whoever he ends up with having a go at him just as they did with Milner. I know thye all love their club but they have to realise they are not a big club and are now bottom feeders.
notthedougellisstand
Id have him as a sub, thats about it. Shorey only looked good because he was at a poo club. He cant run with the big dogs hence the spurs link
medzy
I agree with Glensider. But I think he would be worth the risk. He is still young, and I can understand he is frustrated at Newcaslte, he hasnt managed to progress there. I think he would prosper under MON Cloughie type managment, and if he is happy here, and if Villa continue to progress, why should he want to go to Arsenal? Ashley Young wanted to go to Spurs, but now he is with us, he has no such ideas. Go for it Marty! We have plenty of room on the left at the back or in midfield!
