Steve Harper thinks Newcastle United need just 3-4 new players to come in during the summer and we’ll be a much better side next season.
Steve Harper – thinks Newcastle need just 3 -4 new players
Steve Harper talked to the Newcastle Journal this morning:
â€œKevin has lit the place back up again, which is what he does. You saw with the reaction he got after the Chelsea match what the people here think of him,â€
â€œWe need three or four players to improve the squad and push us back into the top half of the table, just to see how far up we can go. We look forward to the summer.”
â€œThe manager has gone on record saying that weâ€™ve got a good quality squad, but just not enough strength in depth for the winter months, when there are a few players in the treatment room and you need a couple of players in every position.”
“Thatâ€™s what weâ€™ve got to try and get. Itâ€™s been a positive couple of months.â€
Well said Steve. At least Steve is still positive about how we have done in the last several weeks, and the fact we can still have a very good season next year.
But we will not come anywhere near to winning the Premier League – but we don’t expect to.
We’re also not sure what an additional 3-4 players means exactly, because by our reckoning we could lose up to 7 players from our existing squad, so how will these players be replaced? The squad, by Kevin’s own admission is already too small.
We shouldn’t think it’s all doom and gloom on Tyneside – it isn’t – in fact far from it.
