It’s not surprising that Newcastle fans are just a little frustrated with the slow progress Newcastle have made so far in the transfer window – as in no players signed yet – and according to the news yesterday a few of Newcastle top players, like Papiss Cisse, Demba Ba and Yohan Cabaye have also expressed their concerns on our lack of progress to the powers that be at the club.
Adam Campbell – seems to have awesome talent
But we still have 20 days left in the transfer market and there’s still ample time to get new players through the door, and we have to think that the chances of getting Vurnon Anita and Mathieu Debuchy to Newcastle before the transfer window slams shut are now quite good.
If those are the only players Newcastle sign in the summer we shouldn’t be too bad, but we’ll have to assume that James Perch and Curtis Good can come into central defense if any two of our main center backs – Colo, Steven Taylor and Mike Williamson – are injured during the season, as Steven and Mike were last term.
There’s also young local lad 17 year-old Remie Streete who could join the first team squad as a center-back, once the 6’2″ youngster is fully recovered from injury.
And it’s hard to work out whether Newcastle will bring in another striker this summer, after having lost Peter Lovenkrands and Leon Best in the summer, and it seems that Nile Ranger’s career at Newcastle is completely over.
The form of 17 year-old Adam Campbell during his brief cameo appearance at Cardiff City was astonishing, and if this lad is as good as he looked in South Wales, he could also be drafted into the first team squad, and possibly used as an impact sub – but we shouldn’t have to rely on youngsters too much, because they still have a lot to learn.
Haris Vuckic has also showed that he has an eye for goal, and could play in a laid back striker role, if Newcastle don’t bring in another striker this summer.
Things have been frustrating over the summer, but remember that all’s well that ends well – according to a certain William Shakespeare – so Newcastle can still bring in three good players, and then we should be in excellent shape for next season.
And I’ve just watched Adam’s cameo appearance again on nufcTV – needed cheering up so fast forwarded to when he came on – and he looked just fantastic.
I feel a lot better now.
