Newcastle fans generally feel a little underwhelmed if we sign Modou Barrow from Swansea.
We’ve seen the lad play quite a few times for Swansea this season and he’s quick and has lots of skill and since we have Rafa Benitez in charge of all football matters at the club then Rafa must see something in the lad that he can bring out.
That would be much like he did with Andros Townsend last season.
So if we sign him we’ll certainly support the player big time and we’ll trust in Rafa – who knows what he’s doing.

Overall though – fans seem disappointed and maybe part of that is the fact we’ll not get Andros back.
A little bit underwhelmed by the potential signing of Barrow, but not as underwhelmed as I’d be if we’d just signed Lescott ? #NUFC

Absolutely no point in signing Barrow. Atsu doesn’t even get a look in and he’s twice the player. Just can’t see him playing #nufc

Top of the league. Rafa at the helm. Yet our fans STILL question/moan at our signings. Baffling. We haven't had it this good in years! #NUFC

Modou Barrow looking likely. Not sure why the disappointment, he probably won't even start, but a good impact player. #nufc
