We have had almost eight seasons under Mike Ashley as the Newcastle owner, and what have we to show for it – one top eight finish in eight seasons plus a relegation.
Jonas Gutierrez – contract runs out in June
And we are very likely going to see a huge clear-out of players in the summer, and interim head coach John Carver has said so today.
This is what John has said:
“Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley know that there has to be a clear-out.” “It is pretty obvious to the man in the street and to the professionals, it has to be done.”
“There are people out of contract, there are people who are not good enough and they know that.” “I am telling you now because I have been part of it in the last few weeks, there are things in place.”
Ryan Taylor and Jonas Gutierrez are two who have their contracts run out at the end of June, and why we still have Facundu Ferreyra on loan, we have no idea.
Steven Taylor and Mike Williamson are two other players who may be sold this summer, and we expect both Vurnon Anita and Cheick Tiote to also be sold.
So it could be a huge clear-out – but Newcastle will have to bring in some replacements, and we haven’t been too good at that over the last several years.
Newcastle must also get a bigger squad as a defense against the club getting so many injuries every season.
We have to do one of two things – get a bigger squad – or else find out what the reasons are we have so many injuries every season and fix them.
As we reported earlier today, there are also some of our better players who may want to move out and/or big offers come in for them, and they are sold.
