We’ve just about had our fill of foreign players coming into the Newcastle club, for huge transfer fees and on huge wages, and not giving a hoot about Newcastle United.
Alan Shearer – cannot go far wrong buying British
And as we will see this summer, they will be leaving Newcastle just as soon as they can for pastures anew, after being paid huge wages and taking the club down to the Championship. Job not well done.
Now there is a big opportunity for Alan Shearer or whoever is the new manager to buy British, so we can have players who have the passion and drive to play in the English League, and know something of the history of Newcastle United – not just that the club are notorious suckers for paying out high wages.
We’d like to see Alan and his backl-room staff, bring in a fair number of young British players – maybe from the Championship, and we know there are a number of very good players who would love to come to Tyneside.
In fact because Newcastle were relegated it could be a win-win for both player and Newcastle – Newcastle needs these players now – and the players have a chance of joining Newcastle, which would have been a lot less likely if we were still in the Premiership.
Never again do we want to see a player brought to Newcastle who doesn’t know the club and comes just for the money, and please let’s not buy over-the-hill players, and pay them huge wages – when they are simply past it.
We don’t care if the players we have are no-name players. A lot of the clubs above us in the Premier League last season, had no-name players and their teams were a lot better than we were.
Teams like Stoke, Fulham, Hull, Wigan, Blackburn and many more just outfought us – it does mean something when you are playing with tremendous heart and pride, and that can overcome, to a large extent, the skill we paid so much money for. Having skillful players with no heart = relegation.
And that statement was really proved last season. Now is a huge opportunity to bring in young, good British players, but even then, only those who want to come to the club.
There are some excepytions of course, and if there are young foreign players, like Seb Bassong as a great example, then of course we should bring them in.
Bassong has been magnificent for the Magpies this season and we’d love for him to stay. He is young, abudding great player, consistent with a lot of heart – whoop- s let’s not say too much in case Arsenal supporters or Arsene are reading this.
The Newcastle fans will welcome these players with open arms in the summer, after the disgraceful, heartless, spiritless and gutless performances, witnessed from the current lot.
