This is the best transfer summer window Newcastle have had since 2011, when we brought in Yohan Cabaye, Sylvain Marveaux, Demba Ba and Davide Santon, and of course in the following season we finished in 5th place – so we have to hope that history will repeat itself.
Lee Charnley – Newcastle’s Managing Director
We don’t even have a good photo of him
And Lee Charnley is now the lead on all transfers as Newcastle’s new Managing Director, and he’s doing very well so far this summer – having got three excellent signings through the door this week alone – and having signed Ayoze Perez, Jack Colback and Siem de Jong earlier in the summer.
Lee has a name at Newcastle United for being quiet but getting the job done, and he’s all business – and Newcastle are certainly doing very well so far this summer with six good signings by the middle of July.
And as the top executive at Newcastle United we would like to see Lee Charnley write something on the Newcastle web-site periodically, to inform the fans what’s going on at the level he is at the club.
Better still would be if he gave a press conference, which should be in his job description – given that he is at the level he is at Newcastle.
At the moment Alan Pardew is the only spokesman Newcastle have, and it would be good to get news from somebody like Lee – who is closer to Mike Ashley – the owner – and it would be from a different perspective.
We had good vibes about Lee when he was appointed in early April – he essentially replaced the woeful Joe Kinnear who was sacked in early February – and it’s a case of so far so good for Newcastle this summer.
Now we need two strikers, a center-back and a play-maker – and we’ll be in great shape for next season.
Howay The Lads!!
