Seydou Doumbia was a good signing for us yesterday and if this player can hit form quickly in the Premier League in the final 15 games of the season we could do well and avoid any relegation.
Seydou Doumbia – could make debut at Everton
The 33 times capped Ivory Coast international could make his debut at Everton tomorrow night but is still waiting for his visa to come through so maybe not.
The 28 year-old was asked if could adapt quickly in England:
“Yes, definitely.” “It’s important to settle in quickly and make sure I’m well prepared. The last three weeks I’ve been preparing really well.”
“It’s been important that I’m ready for that and I think I’ll be able to adapt really fast and help the team get the goals they need.”
Seydou will give us some goal-scoring prowess up front and he´s also very quick so watch out for those quick breakaways from Newcastle.
In fact the combination of skills of Mitrovic and Doumbia looks very complementary.
Newcastle now get down to the very serious business of trying to survive in the Premier League and we play Everton away tomorrow night.
We just must start picking up some points to try to drag ourselves away from the relegation zone.
Paul Dummett is expected to be fit to resume at left back and we will hope that Paul hits some form after we tried to bring in a left-back over the last week,
We even went after Jose Enrique but that failed because of the wages he was asking for.
Newcastle also failed with loan moves for Atletico Madrid left-back Guilherme Siqueira, Valencia defender Lucas Orban and Arsenal left back Kieran Gibbs.
Only one in three fans think we can win at Goodison Park tomorrow night, which has never been a happy hunting ground for Newcastle.
A defeat could quickly affect the mood on Tyneside – but we must avoid relegation this season.
