We seem to have brought some very good players into the club this summer, but a lot of them – like Siem de Jong, Remy Cabella, Manu Riviere, Facundo Ferreyra and Ayoze Perez have never played in the Premier League, one of the highest rated football leagues in the world.
Remy Cabella – could become big star on Tyneside
So it’s difficult to know how some of them will fare this season, but they look like good players, although they may need time to adjust to the physicality and speed of the Premier League – but hopefully not too much time.
Here’s who we have brought in so far, with hopes we could still get a couple of good players through the door before the end of the transfer window – which is two weeks tomorrow.
|Siem de Jong||£6M||Ajax|
|Facundo Ferreyra||£1.6M - Season Loan||Shakhtar Donetsk|
|Jamaal Lascelles||£4M||Nottingham Forest|
|Karl Darlow||£3M||Nottingham Forest|
We may get some indication of which of our new players are ready now for the Premier League and of course Jack Colback ha for a few seasons in the Premier League with Sunderland, and we are hoping he can have a very good game this afternoon.
But as the saying goes – the proof of the pudding is in the eating – which means that you can only ever say something is a success after it has been tried out or used – a pudding may look good but if it doesn’t taste good, its not very good.
And in the case of our new players who seem to be talented – until they have played a lot of games in the Premier League – we cannot judge just how good they are.
But we think that players like Jack Colback, Siem de Jong, Remy Cabella, Manu Riviere and Daryl Janmaat could be terrific buys for Newcastle in the long term.
We hope so – in any case.
Howay The Lads.
