What’s fairly obvious in the first few gamoe f the season, is the defense is good, as is our midfield, but with Ameobi now out until at least December, we must get an experienced striker in, hopefully before Saturday.
Kamara – refused loan deal by Fulham
Newcastle have scored just 10 goals in 7 league games and that strike rate will not get the job done, it’s not good enough.
But after our first defeat tonight at Blackpool, it’s hardly good news to hear that Fulham boss Roy Hodgson has blocked Diomany Kamara’s move to Newcastle United – because he needs him for his squad.
Hodgson has told the Newcastle club that Kamara will be part of his group as they themselves go into a hectic schedule after reaching the Europa League.
That’s bad news for Newcastle since it looked like Kamara was by far the best striker we have been linked with.
But now it may be that the club will settle for Marlon Harewood, from Aston Villa, who is mediocre at best.
But surely we can add to our squad before Saturday’s game, because after all the club wants to be promoted at the first attempt – doesn’t it?
We just have to hope so, but with Mike Ashley still around, you just never know with this guy – and the sooner he leaves the better.
He’s like an albatross around the neck of the Tyneside club.
