We watched the Swansea vs Middlesbrough game over the weekend and it was another 0-0 draw.
The Teesside club doesn’t let many goals in but they also don’t score many goals and they look destined to be relegated (with Sunderland) unless they can score some goals and get some wins.
Newcastle transfer target Gylfi Sigurdsson was again outstanding in the game and the TV commentators mentioned he has told the south Wales club he wanted to move to a bigger club this summer.
Gylfi Sigurdsson – Newcastle target?
That means whether they stay up or are relegated he will be leaving and they said a number of top clubs would be interested in Gylfi.
In fact they said any of the top seven clubs would improve their squads if they were able to sign Sigurdsson.
And they were right and we are hoping the attraction of world-class Rafa Benitez and a revitalized Newcastle United Premier League club will be enough to have him sign on at Newcastle and come to the north-east.
Certainly the Newcastle fans think he would be great for us.
But just when we were starting to have some fun, the Chronicle tried to dampen expectations by saying they thought Newcastle were not interested in signing the player in the summer – damn it!
Here are some of the comments fans have made on the potential summer signing.
I 100% want Gylfi Sigurdsson to be our number one Transfer Target for next season. #NUFC

Gylfi Sigurdsson would be a very exciting signing – a complete baller of a player #nufc

Gylfi Sigurdsson has been linked with #NUFC in a few national papers today & it would take a fee of around £15m to persuade Swansea to sell.

And of course we realize this …… but we can still dream – just a little bit.
As much as I’d love him at Newcastle, I wish all the Gylfi Sigurdsson speculation would stop for now. We’re not even promoted yet ffs. #nufc
