The Newcastle club have signed five players in the summer, but four have yet to make their debut for Newcastle United.
Cheick Tiote – yet to play for Newcastle
So if you believe the new players Newcastle have signed in the summer will strengthen the squad, and we do, then there’s potentially a better than expected season ahead for the Newcastle club.
Campbell, Tiote and Ben Arfa should all be in the squad for Newcastle’s next game at home to Blackpool in 8 days time, but of course we’ll have to wait until January until Dan Gosling is fit again, after his serious ACL knee injury he suffered at the end of March, when he was still at the Everton club.
Add to that the fact that one of our best players, 24 year-old local lad Steven Taylor, is yet to play this season, and we have 5 good players, potentially all starters, who have yet to play for Newcastle this season.
Talk about improving the squad in the summer!
And there is already talk of Newcastle’s new targets in January, with Newcastle United supporter, Per Ciljan Skjelbred of Rosenborg, seemingly still on the Tyneside club’s radar screen.
And if we are talking about players who want to play for Newcastle, we’ve been linked with this Norwegian International for over two years now, and he’d swim across the channel to play for his favorite club – the team he has supported since he was a boy.
So things may just be looking up for the Newcastle United club these days, and a win in our next home game and we could well crack the top six in the Premier League.
Howay The Lads!
