Would This Talented Striker Be Good Value For Newcastle?


We are now getting pundits coming out of the woodwork paying some attention to Newcastle United, now that we will be back in the land of living next season in the Premier League.

So we are seemingly now important enough again for pundits to talk about us and of course they will come out and tell Rafa Benitez exactly who he would buy this summer.

And Rafa will take absolutely no notice of them.

🙂

Daniel Sturridge – 27 year-old Liverpool striker

We have finally returned from the football wilderness of the Championship and on Tuesday morning I was truly shocked that we were headline news in the national sports pages – really.

But that’s just one of the terrible things that happens when you are relegated – but the nightmare is finally over and we are a real football club again – and a good football club too!

🙂

It’s simply a terrific and uplifting feeling that Rafa and the lads got the job done on Monday night and we can now talk about this summer and the players Rafa could sign.

Former Sunderland player Mick Gray is now a pundit for talkSPORT and he has come out with some advice for Newcastle for the summer transfer window.

This is what Mick has said on talkSPORT:

“Newcastle would snap your hands off right now for somebody like Daniel Sturridge.”

“He is a goalscorer who is going to get you 15, 20 goals a season.”

“They might only get 25 to 30 games out of him at a push but those 15, 20 goals will keep you in the Premier League for another season.”

“They should absolutely go and get him.”

But that’s the big problem with Sturridge – nobody doubts he has great ability and can score the goals.

But you get maybe half a season out of him and this season he has made only five starts for Liverpool in the Premier League.

We’re sure he will be available this summer, but how much will his transfer fee be?

Very high we think.

Sturridge will not play again this season with his latest injury being a hip injury.

Rafa knows who he wants to sign and why he wants to sign them – and if he really wants Daniel Sturridge  he will know how to make him effective at Newcastle.

And maybe he will have had the Newcastle medics do some research work on all the injuries Daniel has picked up over the last few seasons.

Rafa is nothing if not thorough.

Would Daniel Sturridge Be Good Value For Newcastle?

    Altbough i do think sturridge is a good goal scorer i have to agree with hibbit and say no….we dont need players that are always crocked…
    Especially for the money they will want for him…..that was part of the problem that helped with struggling in premiership

    Wonder if Charnley locked up. Perfect excuse now for no transfers, ” well I was in jail so couldn’t get them over the line”.
    Or rafa could run riot with the cheque book with no one to stop him!

    Charnley arrested is the distraction we can do without right now. We need to be planning transfer targets and the guy involved in that gets arrested the moment ee are about to set foot doing just that. Why did he not get arrested much earlier if it was last years deals that are under investigation?? Dodgy timing on the whole thing.

    Cops swooped in on St James’ Park and the London Stadium this morning as part of the operation.

    A statement from HMRC read: “HMRC has arrested several men working within the professional football industry for a suspected Income Tax and National Insurance fraud.

    “180 HMRC officers have been deployed across the UK and France today. Investigators have searched a number of premises in the North East and South East of England and arrested the men and also seized business records, financial records, computers and mobile phones.

    Perhaps the League/FA could kick MA and Charmless out and force him to sell the club?! Wishful thinking!

    RE: Sturridge, no thanks. Shame we couldnt afford Rooneys wage, think he’d do a job for a couple of seasons.

    Oh well! just another typical Newcastle Season,
    ups and downs then promotion, great feeling then back down to earth again with self inflicted wound, if you made a movie about us it would be kicked out as unbelievable.

    Bobbybee- holysh*t we had better not fet demoted or have points deducted i will seriously have s nervous breakdown if that were to happen. If it has to do with dodgy transfer dealings from France i doubt they could deduct points and such when none of those players have been with the club and have been out on loan.
