We didn’t expect this transfer window to be so difficult (at least so far) since Newcastle did very well in attracting new players last year with Rafa as manager and we were in the second division then.
We half expected this summer that a number of good players would want to join the Rafa revolution on Tyneside, but so far nothing like that has happened.
Of course we have to say it’s still very early in the summer and plenty of time to get our new players in.
Rafa Benitez thumbs up
So it cannot be that bad surely?
However it’s always good to get them in as soon as possible, so they can have a full preseason and be ready for the start of the Premier League season in mid August.
That’s certainly what Rafa wants, but it’s not always possible.
Another 5-1 win at home to Tottenham Hotspur on August 12th would be a good start for us
We have taken a look at some comments today from the Newcastle fans to gauge the mood on Tyneside at the moment.
We’ll all have to be a little more patient this summer – but that can be difficult in such an important window.
So #NUFC are waiting for Gouffran to respond to a contract offer. Pretty much sums up the close season so far! ?

Bournemouth have just spent £20 mill on a defender. I don’t think #nufc will spend that on any player in the next 20 years ?

What’s worrying is likes of Bournemouth willing to spend the cash & #nufc still standing still

I’m starting to get a bit worried now #nufc

Got to admit slightly annoyed we haven’t gone in for players like Iheanacho & Ake #NUFC
— Simon Heatman (@Syheatz) June 30, 2017
I’ve said it a lot but Iheanacho for £25m would be a cracking signing. #NUFC

In my opinion only 4 players from last seasons first team should be in a PL starting 11. Rafa needs backing and needs backing now! #NUFC

Well I was not expecting such a frustrating window.. this isn’t going to end well but hope I’m wrong! #nufc

Are #nufc going to sign anyone this summer? No news but loads of rumours. I really wonder what Rafa has up his sleeve
