Alan Pardew has talked about bringing some new players into the club next month during the January transfer window, but he’s not talking about a lot of players coming in – just one or two.
A worried Alan Pardew and John Carver last Monday night
Newcastle’s amazing slump has coincided with the squad sustaining a number of injuries to some of our top players like Yohan Cabaye and Steven Taylor, but a lot of our players are also nowhere near their form of last season.
This is what Alan said about the possibility of bringing new players into the club next month:
“On our side we look weak with the injuries we have sustained and we may need to bring in a player or two.” . “We are in the market, as I’m sure a few other clubs will be.
“Mike has been very supportive and I want to look him in the eye with great results under my belt, but at the minute I can’t. I’m looking at him in the eye and I’ve got tricky results.”
“He understands that and has been very supportive and now we look to the window hopefully and we may need some assistance in that but we will see.”
“It would be nice to get one or two back, Steven Taylor and Yohan Cabaye around our first team, and hopefully bring one or maybe two players in the window if we can.”
“We’re a good side that is under-performing and there are reasons for that, but we can’t accept that. We have to work and we are working as hard as we can to turn the situation in our favor.”
We’d like to see three good players come through the door next month, but we also realize it’s not an ideal time when good players are usually available.
But there was news in the French daily L’Equipe yesterday that we would be bringing in Moussa Sissoko, and that would be a great start, especially if we can the 23 year-old through the door very early next month.
