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

Lahm on the menu?

It`s a funny state of affairs when your team is relying on Celestine Babayaro to get you out of a hole. However news today broke that the Nigerian is over in Germany getting some sort of specialist groin treatment (oh aye!) meaning left back recruits have gone from urgent to absolutely essential. The Chronicle ran with the story that we`ve put a £7m bid in for a defender. Naturally the two main runners and riders were Heinze (unlikely) and Riise (more likely).

However internet rumours are suggesting that the likely suspect might be German international Philip Lahm. More on this when we get it…

Don't fool yourselves. Why would he leave Bayern for Newcastle. No European football whatsoever and a negative manager, please!!!

could not agree more

Brilliant player with a possible move to a Brilliant team. Makes sense to me! Players want a change... Take your negativity back to where it belongs.. (the spurs forum) >spits on u two<
Toon4LiFe
Hmmmm, brilliant team, LOL. Everyone says Spurs have went long without a trophy but how long have Newcastle went without success? 50 years or something like that. No European whatsoever, what makes you think he will want to leave one of the biggest clubs in Europe for s*** intertoto Newcastle, please. Don't delude yourselves. He is probably s*** scared that Barton will knock him the f*** out.
OneAaronLennon
we had half a team last season with injuries and still managed to do you lot over twice.. still not over it i can see. Im sure martins goal that night gave you something to sleep on. Too bad for spurs that even with a full team they aint shiiiit. Pathetic supporters supporting a wasted team. Stop the envy... It only makes me smile :)
Toon4LiFe
You are a really funny guy. You beat us twice, well done!!! We still finished 5th, where did you finish? I don't take no notice to teams in the bottom half of the premiership. Envy of Newcastle, you're talking out of your arse mate!!! Yeah we are really envious of £17 million injury prone Michael Owen, don't forget Rozhenal or whatever his name is, let's not forget Ameobi, Dyer, Ramage and co. Our squad team is better than your first team!!! When you have players like King, Dawson, Chimbonda, Lennon, Bent, Keane, Berbatov etc then come back to me will you. 50 years and still counting....................
OneAaronLennon
Barton is going to f*** your whole team up. He should be locked up, not on a football field. He needs some sort of help, wasn't a good move going to live in Geordie land then was it, bunch of hooligans!!!
OneAaronLennon
Yes, you lost twice to an injured newcastle side. You must be proud. So what if you finished 5th? Your not gonna achieve anything greater and your whole forum knows it. Just read your own posts. Just how you got flushed out the UEFA cup. No hope! Our current squad smacks yours out the way.. talking about top 5? look back down the years...then come back to me.. Fact is, we attract top players and have the best fans in the country if not the world.
Toon4LiFe
Some funny quotes there!!! "Our current squad smacks yours out the way", "We attract top players", "No hope", "Look back down the years". Typical Geordie, thinking Newcastle is a big club, maybe 50 years ago mate!!!
OneAaronLennon
Anyway that is enough of my posting now!!! I have contributed to half of the comments. Ten comments on one article on Vital Newcastle must be a record!!!
OneAaronLennon
Go on, get.
Toon4LiFe
lahm is used to CL football every season which you can't offer so its unlikely
Dales_Dad
Lahm would be a cracking signing for you!
