Newcastle United fans on Florian Thauvin:
Thauvin to replace Sissoko in the starting line-up this weekend? Pretty soon if you ask me #NUFC— Harrison Mead (@Mead93) August 20, 2015
Wijnaldum, Mbemba, Mitrovic & Thauvin. Newcastle have had a very, very good transfer window. Brilliant business. #NUFC— Owen McMahon (@omcmahonmedia) August 20, 2015
Saturday should be quality at Old Trafford, just hoping Mitro starts and Thauvin comes on #NUFC— TheTalkofTheToon (@TalkofTheToon1) August 20, 2015
Thauvin in surely means we never have to watch Gouffran play again #nufc— Andrew Heatherington (@APHeatherington) August 20, 2015
Newcastle United fans on Remy Cabella:
Florian Thauvin is a great buy, but unhappy about Cabella's exit. #NUFC— Heisenberg! (@muchman16) August 20, 2015
The best thing about #Nufc signing Florian Thauvin is the sheer relief of unfollowing selfie-king Remy Cabella on Instagram.— George Caulkin (@CaulkinTheTimes) August 20, 2015
Excited to see what this Thauvin is all about however I'd be more excited about it if Cabella retained his black and white stripes #NUFC— Lisa Coleman (@LisaC_7) August 20, 2015
