Newcastle will have a better squad for next season than they had last season, and the key to Newcastle’s successful future is a step by step improvement each and every season from now on.
David Moyes – has had great success at Everton
We think Newcastle can become successful again by investing in youngsters and following the way Everton and David Moyes managed to get regularly into the top 5 in the English Premiership.
David never had much money to spend, but by making some savvy buys in the transfer market and investing in Youth, he was able to take Everton to 5th place in the Premiership.
They had a difficult time of things last season, but came roaring back this year to still finish in 8th place on 61 points, just 2 points behind their neighbors – big spenders Liverpool.
Going back from last season Everton finished in 5th, 4th, 6th, 11th and 4th places in the Premiership, and showed that you don’t have to spend daft money in transfer fees, to build a more than decent side in the Premiership.
As it happens Newcastle’s Kevin Nolan has said today that Newcastle must look forward and at least target a return to Europe in the future , although it may take a few years to accomplish.
This is what Kevin told the Evening Chronicle today:.
“We’ll have our own expectations in the dressing room, of course,” “And what we need is to make sure first is make sure that we survive.”
“If we finished 17th 12 months ago, we’d have been jumping up and down thinking we’d won the league. If we do it next season, it’ll be an improvement.”
“Then we’ll have another year when we look to go higher and higher again.” “We can’t get carried away with our goals, but we have to make sure we get to them bit by bit, or step by step, rather than jump a few.”
That’s basically what Everton did, and we are certainly not getting carried away, but if we can get some stability at Newcastle under the savvy and down to earth Chris Hughton, success cannot be too far away.
That’s what we are hoping of course.
