The immediate impact of Jonjo Shelvey at Newcastle yesterday will show the powers that be that maybe Alan Pardew was right when he wanted to sign proven Premier league player who could have an immediate impact on the side and we didn´t have to wait months for continental players brought in on the cheap to adjust to the rigors of the English league.
Andros Townsend – next signing on Tyneside?
Newcastle were 2-0 up after only 15 minutes and looked a terrific attacking side and we could have had more goals before West Ham were allowed to wake up and come back into the game when we gifted them a goal after five minutes of the second half.
The man principally responsible for Newcastle great start to the game yesterday was new boy Jonjo Shelvey and who would have through this was his first game for Newcastle?.
The 23 year-old could be a real star player for Newcastle and hopefully ill help us climb the table sooner rather than later.
And the deal to sign Andros Townsend form Spurs will now only be accelerated by Newcastle in the hope he could be available for our next game st Watford next Saturday.
The news yesterday was that Newcastle had reached an advanced stage in the negotiations with Tottenham for winger Andros Townsend, although no deal had been agreed.
And Andros is keen to come to Newcastle and he will be even more keen is he watches that first half yesterday, when Newcastle seem to have the makings of a very good side – forget the fact we are still struggling with relegation.
Andros would be like Shelvey and give Newcastle something we haven´t got – an out-and-out winger who can both create and score goals.
And the 24 year-old wouldn´t take long to start producing for Newcastle either, which is what we want – given our still perilous position in the Premier League.
We would be surprised if this deal is not closed within a couple of days. and it could turn out to be another stellar signing for the Magpies, just like the Jonjo Shelvey signing early last week.
If Jonjo keeps producing like he did yesterday then he may get his wish and is in immediate danger of having 52,000 Geordies sing his name at games – something he said would be great when he gave his first interview after signing on from Swansea last week.
