Of course they are, he's been trying to get out of their club for over a year - it's pissed off the Geordies but, to be honest, only endeared him to me as they do my nut in! They didn't sell him last summer when everything was good, upset the player and then their team started underperforming. When you have an upset player in an underperforming team, it's a recipe for disaster!.Hope your right mate my barcode mate is texting me pissing himself ,he and a lot of their fans are over the moon with him going .im hoping if anyone can get the player that we all know that's in there going it's poch
Then, after being relegated, he basically forced his way out. They will think (just as we no doubt would) that he's massively disrespected their club. From an outside perspective, it's slightly easier to see it from the players point of view where, had they sold him last summer, nobody's noses would've been put out of joint.
I have to say, Sissoko has obviously been unhappy in Newcastle for a while and particularly this summer, so the friction between him and their fans is understandable, but whilst he spoke about his frustration, he never "did a Modric", and whilst his performances dipped, he never stopped playing.
