Hatem Ben Arfa's Newcastle future has been thrown into more doubt after Alan Pardew confirmed he trained away from the first team.
(Puts it all into perspective really. I bet Newcastle, utd and even Chelsea would like to have our team and our supporters, not to mention the owners and Brendan. Look what we have achieved in such a short time) Newcastle United’s fans staged a mass exodus of St James’ Park as they protested against owner Mike Ashley and manager Alan Pardew during their final home match of the season - as star forward Hatem Ben Arfa watched from the stands. The Toon Army left the stadium in their thousands on 69 minutes as they called for Ashley to leave the club and Pardew to be sacked. The Newcastle United Supporters Trust had encouraged fans to walk out during the game against Cardiff City. The significance of the 69th minute is that the club last won a trophy in 1969, the year of their Fairs Cup triumph. A statement released by the NUST on Friday read: 'As fans we have deep concerns at the direction Newcastle United is heading in, both on and off the pitch. 'The vast majority of supporters are angry and frustrated ...
If Magpies are going to rebuild, they have to buy British By Don Hutchison Newcastle United have been a comedy club this season but no-one is laughing. The moment that summed up Newcastle United’s sorry season for me came on Saturday as the team trudged around a half-empty St James’ Park for a supposed lap of honour. Alan Pardew was nowhere to be seen as the team walked around the pitch but Hatem Ben Arfa was there, soaking up the applause. He has fallen out with the manager to the extent that he’s watching the games from the stands but there he was on a pitch that his manager wouldn’t dare to tread on for fearing of getting booed or jeered by the supporters. That isn’t right but it says so much about the situation at Newcastle at the moment. It’s turned into a bit of a comedy up there in the last few weeks – but no one who cares about that club is laughing at the moment. There were a few pundits saying on Saturday that Newcastle’s supporters had let their club down by walking out on 69 mi ...

Newcastle Boss Hails Ameobi Jnr -Big Brother, Shola Also Plays Newcastle United youngster, Sammy Ameobi has won accolades from The Magpies coach, Alan Pardew, after the attacker found playing time alongside his older brother, Shola Ameobi in a goalless draw with Norwich City in an English Premiership game on Tuesday night. Sammy was handed a rare start against the Canaries, while Shola had to settle for a place on the bench, and the younger of the Ameobi brothers saw 87 minutes of action. Sammy put up an impressive performance for the visitors before he was taken off for Massadio Haidara. While Shola came on for injured Hatem Ben Arfa in the 75th minute. In response, Pardew hailed the performance of Sammy after the game and said: "We were terrific tonight. Hatem [Ben Arfa] and Sammy [Ameobi] were terrific. "We hit the woodwork three or four times. I can't remember the last time we created so many chances and did not score away from home. We defended well and I'm very proud of the performance."
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has named a strong side for the Magpies' FA Cup third round tie against Cardiff at St. James' Park (3pm kick-off).

Four of those changes are enforced, with Mathieu Debuchy suspended and Yohan Cabaye, Tim Krul and Fabricio Coloccini all injured, while Mike Williamson, Loic Remy and Shola Ameobi also drop out. Coming in are Rob Elliot, Steven Taylor, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Massadio Haidara, Vurnon Anita, Hatem Ben Arfa and Papiss Cisse. United will line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Elliot protected by a back four of Davide Santon, Taylor, Yanga-Mbiwa and Haidara.

TEAM NEWS West Brom caretaker boss Keith Downing must decide whether to stick with striker Nicolas Anelka for the match against Newcastle. Anelka is being investigated by the Football Association following his controversial 'quenelle' goal celebration in the 3-3 draw against West Ham, but remains free to play for now. Striker Shane Long is expected to be fit after missing the last two games with a calf strain, while Downing is also confident over winger Chris Brunt, but striker Victor Anichebe remains a big doubt. Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has no injury problems ahead of the trip to The Hawthorns. The Magpies emerged unscathed from Sunday's 1-0 defeat by leaders Arsenal, for which midfield enforcer Cheick Tiote returned from suspension in place of Hatem Ben Arfa. Pardew was happy with the way his side played against the Gunners and is unlikely to make changes as he attempts to bounce back from just a second defeat in 10 league games. MANAGER QUOTES Keith Downing: “The conversation I had on Sunday didn ...

So A round-up of todays transfer news concerning Newcastle United in the local, national and international media. The Guardian reports that Newcastle United target Darren Bent is back for pre-season training with Aston Villa and asking them to sell him for a reasonable price.

Newcastle United could face a battle to keep hold of star Hatem Ben Arfa, according to reports in France. AS Monaco, newly promoted to Ligue 1, are splashing the cash this summer, and it would seem Ben Arfa is on their shopping list. Magpies boss Alan Pardew won’t want to lose the 26-year-old, who is under contract at the club until 2016, but a big-money offer may prove too good for owner Mike Ashley and chairman Derek Llambias to turn down. Ben Arfa missed a lot of last season through injury, but his skilful attacking play has made him a firm favourite with fans on Tyneside. And the United star provides the team with a real attacking threat when fully fit. Monaco have not been put off by the player’s injury record while on Tyneside. Ben Arfa made the move to St James’s Park from Marseille three years ago, and has appeared in just 49 top-flight matches and 56 fixtures in all competitions for Pardew’s men. However, reports in France say Monaco are prepared to launch a £10m bid to get their man. Sh ...

An afternoon dominated by snow, swirling wind, set-pieces and another stellar defensive display from Newcastle United's Steven Taylor was decided by Papiss Cissé's stoppage-time winner. Cissé had spent much of the afternoon being caught offside but there was no flag as he met Sylvain Marveaux's pass before easing Newcastle's lingering relegation worries by half-volleying the ball beyond Asmir Begovic in front of the Gallowgate End. Kicking off in a snowstorm, Newcastle could have been forgiven for believing they were still in Russia. Alan Pardew had made seven changes to his starting line-up as he refreshed his side following Thursday's impressive 0-0 Europa League first-leg draw against Anzhi Makhachkala in Moscow. The bad news for St James' Park regulars was that Hatem Ben Arfa was injured again and did not even make the bench.

Newcastle boss Pardew says his side are "underdogs" to progress from their Europa League last 16 clash with the Russian side, which begins on an artificial surface here in Moscow on Thursday. The Geordies have left star striker Papiss Cisse at home after a bout of sickness. That has forced Pardew to bring along Shola Ameobi, who was supposed to be excused from this trip to avoid subjecting his knees to the battering the Luzhniki Stadium's plastic turf will inflict. Jonas Gutierrez has been left at home for the same reason, but fit-again Hatem Ben Arfa will make an appearance.

Hatem Ben Arfa will make his first step back into action for Newcastle United when he boards the flight to Moscow on Wednesday.
Hatem Ben Arfa turns 26 years old this week. That's the age when footballers cease being young prospects. At 21, 23, 25, a top young player has the allure of untapped potential. They are talked about in terms of what they might achieve in the future. Whatever delights are being served up on the pitch in the present, there is always the tempting thought that it could get better. Better goals, breathtaking dribbles, and perhaps a career defining transfer to the pinnacle of the game. Ben Arfa has reached a crossroads in his career as he returns from ten weeks out with a serious hamstring injury. He is a genius. We've seen it in flashes at Newcastle. The stunning individual goals against Blackburn and Bolton, the electricity in the crowd when he gets the ball and has space. He can pass, inject pace into a move, and tear full backs apart. Or decide to rocket in a shot from long range. So already Ben Arfa is the real thing. For all the top class talent, mainly French, that Newcastle have assembled, Ben Arfa is ...
Following the unlucky defeat at Swansea, Alan Pardew updated everybody on the fitness of Fabricio Coloccini and Hatem Ben Arfa. The manager made it clear to the club’s official TV channel that he expects Ben Arfa to be available on Thursday but that Coloccini will be ruled out because of the astroturf pitch potentially aggravating his back injury, though he could return next Sunday for the Stoke match. Alan Pardew; “I think Hatem will feature on Thursday (v Anzhi) but not sure Colo will as it is on Astroturf and he’s obviously got aback injury, so that would be foolish on everybody’s part. I think there is half a chance for Colo on Sunday (v Stoke)”. With the Russian team second favourites to win the Europa League, it would be a massive help if Hatem Ben Arfa is available, even if it is only to come on for the last twenty or so minutes and have ago at them. Things appear more complicated with Coloccini, as reports this weekend had stated he was expected to be out for at least a month, as alway . ...

Alan Pardew resists call for Hatem Ben Arfa: Newcastle's manager, Alan Pardew, will not bring back Hatem Ben Arf...
Newcastle v Metalist, 20:05 Metalist come to Newcastle as winner of their group, with four victories in this six matches and while the home fans may view them as an easy draw for Newcastle the away team won’t lie down in the face of Premier League opposition. Alan Pardew won’t get many chances to manage in Europe, and with the relegation fears easing a bit following some good transfer business he may be able to field a strong side this evening. There is 21/20 with Bet365 on over 2.5 goals in this game, which I expect to yield a few. Newcastle are without January signings Yoan Gouffran and Mathieu Debuchy for the Europa League clash with Ukrainian side Metalist Kharkiv. The duo are cup-tied, having already played for French sides Bordeaux and Lille respectively in this season’s Europa League competition. Gouffran would be unavailable anyway as he recovers from a leg injury. Hatem Ben Arfa (knee) remains out and fellow midfielder Sammy Ameobi is missing with a hamstring problem.
Alan Pardew is excited by the options he will have at his disposal when everybody is fit as he looks forward to welcoming Hatem Ben Arfa back into the Newcastle United side. Ben Arfa is working his way back following a hamstring problem and could be in contention for the clash with Southampton at St James' Park on 24th February.
Newcastle daily The Journal is reporting that Alan Pardew appears to be looking to Holland for emerging talent. A group of team scouts are said to have attended the Dutch U-21 team take on Ireland on Wednesday. Scouts are also expected to attend some Eredivisie matches that involve clubs Vitesse Arnhem, PSV Eindhoven, Zwolle and AZ Alkmaar this weekend. The club who has developed a reputation for favouring players from the French league could be switching their focus to the Eredivisie going forward. Here are five potential transfer targets for Newcastle United from Holland. Siem de Jong, AFC Ajax, Midfielder/Forward The Magpies were heavily linked to the 24-year-old attacking midfielder during last month’s Transfer Window. He is considered a traditional playmaker who could also play up front and score goals. Jong could be a replacement for Hatem Ben Arfa if he does infact plan to leave St.James’ Park this summer. Although he is not as skillful as Hatem, he scores more goals and is perhaps physically b ...

Newcastle - Chelsea Preview: Off-colour Blues looking to end three-game winless run Rafa Benitez's men surrendered a two-goal lead in the final five minutes of their last outing and face a Magpies side boosted by several arrivals in the January window PROBABLE LINEUPS NEWCASTLE Krul Debuchy, Taylor, Coloccini, Santon Perch, Cabaye Gouffran, Sissoko, Gutierrez Cisse CHELSEA Cech Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Cole Ramires, Lampard Mata, Oscar, Bertrand Ba Newcastle's squad remains riddled with injuries, with Hatem Ben Arfa (hamstring), Dan Gosling (knee), Danny Simpson (toe), Ryan Taylor (knee) and Haris Vuckic (knee) all sidelined. However, given their ample spending in the January Transfer Window, the Magpies appear capable of fielding a strong side nonetheless.

Magpies manager has seemingly short memory. “I saw a headline saying Arsenal are flying the flag for Britain in the Champions League, but I had to wonder where that British involvement was when I saw the team. “It is important we don’t lose sight that this is the English Premier League and English players should be involved. I know it is difficult to buy British players because the market is expensive.” – Alan Pardew, West Ham United manager, 2006. Howay! Have you forgotten that Alan? Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is seemingly in possession of a very short memory. fanatix has found an old news report on ESPN in which Pardew criticises Arsenal at some length for their focus on foreign imports. Fast-forward to the future and Pardew is currently operating on a seemingly self-imposed ban to only purchase players from France’s Ligue 1. Pardew had already created a strong French contingent at St James’ Park with the likes of Demba Ba, Papiss Cisse, Hatem Ben Arfa and Yohan Cabaye having made their wa ...

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is considering a January bid for Newcastle United winger Hatem Ben Arfa, a move that could tempt the French international into a move to the North London club. The Gunners boss is said to be ready to spend the transfer warchest he has been handed in order to strengthen his squad in pursuit of a top four finish and the coveted Champions League berth that is considered the very least Wenger must garner from the current campaign. Chelsea vs Arsenal tickets still available Alan Pardew has seen Demba Ba leave for Chelsea and now has to deal with the fact that his club captain, Fabricio Coloccini wants to return to his native Argentina. This may leave Ben Arfa considering his options, not least because the St James’ Park side have had a poor season and ...

Kevin Keegan has told Newcastle fans not to worry about the sale of Demba Ba - as Yohan Cabaye is the key to the club's future. - Blog: Newcastle slump to defeat The French international midfielder is sidelined with a groin injury and wasn't expected to come back until February, but he has begun light training and could be in the first-team fold again by mid- January. His return would be a massive boost to manager Alan Pardew, whose side have been hit by injuries to other key players including Hatem Ben Arfa and Ryan Taylor and have been on a run of form which has seen them lose nine of their last 11 Premier League games. The expected sale of top scorer Ba to Chelsea is another blow for Pardew, but ESPN lead football analyst and Former Newcastle boss Keegan thinks that Cabaye's influence will steer the club to safety. "Losing Demba Ba will be a blow but I think they would have expected that," Keegan said. "I think the biggest problem Newcastle have at the moment is the fact that Yohan Cabaye is injured. H ...

Debuchy signing can lift Toon - Pardew Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is hoping a successful pursuit of Mathieu Debuchy will help to secure the club's biggest names. The Magpies are hopeful of pushing through their protracted move for the 27-year-old Lille full-back later this week after tracking the France international for more than a year. At a time when the future of striker Demba Ba is looking increasingly uncertain, that would represent a major boost for Pardew as he looks to build his team around the likes of Tim Krul, Fabricio Coloccini, Hatem Ben Arfa, Papiss Cisse and Debuchy's close friend, Yohan Cabaye. He said: "When you sign good, senior international players, which he is, it's going to give everybody a boost, your senior players too. "I hope that's the case - but we are still far from a deal yet." In the short term, Pardew's only focus, however, is the clash at Everton in which the Magpies will attempt to avoid a ninth defeat in just 11 Barclays Premier League games. Pardew's problems have been ...

MAN UTD V NEWCASTLE (3pm) Manchester United - Newcastle Preview: Leaders looks for response after Swansea draw The Red Devils lead the Premier League by four points after drawing at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday, but will have to overcome a Magpies side intent on climbing the table The only real injury problems Sir Alex Ferguson has are in midfield, with Anderson (hamstring) set to miss out until the trip to West Brom on December 29. Nani (hamstring) and Shinji Kagawa (knee) will most likely return against Steve Clarke's side at the Hawthorns asl well, so Ferguson may well call on the likes of Paul Scholes and Danny Welbeck to fill in the gaps in midfield. Wayne Rooney could be dropped after a disappointing display at Swansea in which he was substituted, with Chicharito or Welbeck ready to take his place up front. Alan Pardew has a number of fitness issues to contend with in his squad - Hatem Ben Arfa (hamstring) and Dan Gosling (knee) have no set return dates, and are likely to miss the trip to Old Traff ...
Alan Pardew: We've got to go and attack Man City by Lee Ryder, Evening Chronicle ALAN PARDEW will make his feelings crystal clear to his players this week as he looks to address Newcastle United's alarming form. The Toon boss has demanded a response from his troops after a worrying run of just one win from the last 10 games. And although the next two fixtures are against wounded Premier League champions Manchester City - still reeling from their last-gasp 3-2 derby loss against Man United - and then recovering Queens Park Rangers, who have been boosted by the appointment of Harry Redknapp, Pardew is still bravely targeting six points from the next two games. Pardew will have home advantage on his side as well as influential playmaker Hatem Ben Arfa fully fit after he emerged unscathed from the 2-1 loss at Fulham. But while Pardew has laid off his players during the poor run of form this season, he was quite rightly feeling let down by the sloppy defending which led to Hugo Rodagella's winner at Craven Cot ...

Hatem Ben Arfa stroked home a late winner from the penalty spot as Alan Pardew's Newcastle rode their luck to get their new Premier League campaign off to a flying start with victory over Tottenham. The Frenchman sent Brad Friedel the wrong way in the 80th minute having been hauled down by Rafael van der Vaart, restoring the Magpies' slender advantage after Spurs had pulled back to level four minutes earlier. A low-key encounter had sprung into life in the 55th minute when Demba Ba fired his first goal since February to put the home side ahead before Jermain Defoe prodded a 76th minute equaliser at the second attempt. The late drama proved too much for Pardew, who was sent to the stands by referee Martin Atkinson for a furious response to a touchline incident shortly before Andre Villas-Boas' men had snatched their leveller. The visitors had looked sharper in the first period and were desperately unlucky not to take some kind of lead into the half-time break after both Defoe and Gareth Bale clattered shot ...
