Emmanuel Riviere is one of six new summer signings so far for Newcastle United, and we just hope we can continue and bring in another three top players that will make this transfer window an extremely successful one for Newcastle in what is Lee Charnley’s first transfer window as our Managing Director.
Emmanuel Riviere – looked dangerous yesterday
Steven Taylor played his second pre-season game in New Zealand yesterday, as he tries to prove he is still good enough to be a starter at Newcastle next season.
And the local boy was full of praise for the team after the game:
“We have the pace up front to cause teams problems.” “Even at this stage of pre-season our fitness is showing through and we looked sharp up front. There’s a great work ethic in the team.”
“In pre-season training, everybody’s working hard gearing up for the Manchester City game. We know it’s important to put in a performance in every match in the build-up.”
Siem de Jong, Emmanuel Riviere, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Adam Armstrong all scored for the Magpies in Dunedin, and some of the chances were more difficult than they appeared, and Siem de Jong is looking like a great buy for us.
And Emmanuel Riviere certainly has the speed that will cause opposing defenses next season all sorts of trouble, and that’s something we didn’t have last season.
And we also think Emmanuel will be spurred on by the 52,00 fans at St. James’ Park – he’s the type of emotional player who will be inspired by the Geordie crowd – and from what we’ve seen of him so far, he could become a great acquisition for us.
