There’s been news in the last day or two that Rafa Benitez may try to bring in one of his former strikers, Peter Crouch, the 6ft 7ins tall striker, who is now 35 years old and plying his trade at Stoke City.
But fans are not convinced he would be a good signing for the club, even if it was on a short-term two year deal like Rafa negotiated for the highly rated Spanish full-back Jesus Gamez.

And we put out an article earlier today on Patrick Bamford, the 22 year-old Chelsea striker, who we have been linked with this summer and would cost Newcastle at least £10M in today’s transfer market.
But Geordie fans are not convinced that would be a good deal either for the club.
In both cases around two thirds of Newcastle fans don’t think the deals would be good ones for the club.
