Alan Pardew will meet with Mike Ashley and Derek LLambias this week to sort out what needs to be done this summer, but a 5th bottom finish in the Premier League will make it that much harder to attract top players to Tyneside.
Andy Carroll – coming home?
Newcastle don’t need too many players, since we already have some good players in the squad, if only they could keep fit – and Alan is saying today we need two or three top players brought in
This is what the manager said in the local press today:
“We still need to make sure we get two or three recruits in there which take us forward.” “If we can do that, they’ll grow as well, and we’ll be much, much better next year.”
“You hear managers taking about needing three players to make the perfect side, but we genuinely need a couple in the first team that complement the others.”
“We’re very lucky to have the fans – we mentioned that in the dressing room after the game.” “There were 52,000 again. I said to them – even if we’d gone down, there’d still be 52,000.”
“We’ve got to serve up better than what we’ve served up this year.”
You can say that again.
And the Newcastle fans were again as patient as ever yesterday, and did not boo the players or anything like that – because it was clear the lads were giving everything they had.
it’s just a pity we couldn’t get a win to end the season on a more positive note.
It’s understood that a certain Andy Carroll is high on the list of potential recruits this summer, and that’s because Andy would give us back something we haven’t had this season – a threat from set plays into the box.
We hope we can get him back, but we also need another striker to help out Papiss Cisse with the job of putting that ball into the back of the net.
