Defoe Not Going To Toon

Defoe Not Going To Toon

Tottenham sold Michael Carrick to Manchester United for £15million this weekend, but Martin Jol says he is looking to buy ... not sell ... and any interest in Defoe will be waved away.


The London press were quick to put Newcastle at the head of the queue after Ferguson copped out, but Defoe is staying at White Hart Lane.


The north London club made a profit of just over £12million on Carrick and already have Ivory Coast international Didier Zokora as a ready-made replacement.


Martin Jol, who failed to hide his disappointment at Carrick's decision to walk out on the club, says Newcastle will not be so lucky.

Defoe is not going to the Toon and why would he want to?

Walk on by toons. A london lad, playing for a london club that are going places would never choose a sub-standard Geordie side for anything. Your best hope are northerners that like money more than football!

I'd never even heard the rumour but there is no chance he would want to, nevermind Spurs wanting to sell him.

Defoe very overrated. 9 goals last season? Hardly what I'd call prolific. Perennial under-achievers Spurs finish 2 places above us and qualify for the UEFA Cup like us and their fans think they are Arsenal! You couldn't make it up, could you. To replace the world class legend Shearer we need a world class striker - certainly not some bloke who couldn't even make the rubbish England squad in the World Cup. Christ, even an Arsenal 16 year old reserve was preferred over him! Says it all really.

Thats because Keane was favoured over him. Have you not considered that we actually have the option to bench Defoe?! What have you Geordies got? washed-out about-to-retire and a past-his-best injury prone 20 million quid stikers.. - How many did Owne get last season? Less that 9. Bring on Luque? Overpriced crap. He is utterly clueless. Keane / Defoe / Berbatov.. you cant even begin to compare. For God's sake, you still play Boumsong and Bramble at the back until your manager, whos relegated nearly every team he's managed, buckles up and attracts some decent who isn't just money hungry. When all that money runs out, i think we will see Newcastle slowly drip where they belong in the 11-16 place. Rant over. About the 5th place finish, we will still be around a bout there this season. Where will you be?

Well you've just proven my point. If Defoe is worse than the decidely average Keane then he can't be good enough for NUFC. And as I said, if we're that crap and also started the season with that massive handicap of Souness, how come we only finished 2 places below you lot AND beat you 3-1! Oh, and why did Duff choose us over you lot? Face it, Spurs are the Everton of North London. But hey, good luck for next season!

Keane average??!!! 16 goals last season when he didn't even play every game says not.

ok, you may have only finished a couple places behind us, duff may have chosen you over us (if your blind enough to see why thats your problem). On the basis that you receive 75 % more fans through those gates doesnt give you the right to claim a bigger fan base like you have been doing for the last two weeks,It only means that you are bringing in more money on a sat afternoon, now to my point, sorry its taken me a long time to get there, what players have you bought in the last few seasons or nurtured through the ranks that you can say have been a success or credit to the set-up at newcastle. How many players now shearer has retired do you guys really hold deep to your heart from a fans point of view. At spurs it would be easier to name those that we dont have a passion for, roll on stalteri and occasionally lee, other than that we are happy with our whole squad. If you was to take given out of the equation i guess you wouldnt be bothered about replacing any of your outfiled players based on the last few season performances. Please respond with some adult and mature comments instead of the flippent remarks that were being branded around the Duff saga, i havent come on here for a row but just a discussion about our beloved teams. Good Luck next season, although unless you bring in another stiker i do feel that you might find it a tough and gritty season.

Hey flaming lop, You had Englands best striker on your books for years, and still won f*** all. Last season we had a young team that took time to gel, it's well known we lost silly points in the last mnute of a few games. Thoe points would have put us within 2 points of manure. If we only finish a couple ofpoints above you this year, then you can call us underachievers.
