Newcastle could bring in two strikers over the summer so we can convert more of the many chances the lads created last season in the Championship.
It’s an easier thing to fix – to convert the chances – and the much more difficult thing to do in football is to create the chances in the first place, which we managed to do last season.
Dwight Gayle – could shock a lot of people next season
Let’s hope we can continue that next season and Rafa will be looking to add a lot more creativity to the Newcastle squad so that’s possible next season in the Premier League.
Dwight Gayle had a great first season at the club and if he hadn’t picked up that hamstring problem in January he could have hit over 30 goals for us rather than the 23 goals (in 32 appearances) the Newcastle number 9 did score.
Dwight has never been as successful in the Premier League and in his three seasons at Crystal Palace in 74 total appearances he scored 25 goals.
And 15 of those goals were in 66 Premier League appearances.
But Gayle seems to be the kind of poacher, who can score goals in any division and he may well shock a lot of people with the number PL goals he scores next season if he continues to start for Newcastle.
The Chronicle is reporting that Dwight has made it clear to the top brass at the club that he doesn’t want to leave the club and the Londoner is even spending his summer at Newcastle – he likes the City and area so much.
Not surprisingly Dwight is very keen to be part of Rafa’s phase two of rebuilding at the Newcastle United club.
There’s a good chance the striker could shock a lot of people next term in the Premier League with the number of goals he can score – if Rafa keeps starting the 27 year-old.
