Now that we are only a matter of days from the start of the Premier League season we will launch our poll on where Newcastle can finish in the league table next May.
We had been waiting a little bit hoping we may get some additional players through the door but no such luck – not yet anyway.
It’s not only because of owner Mike Ashley’s thriftiness this summer that has caused Rafa not to get the players he wanted but also the fact we have less money than other PL clubs to spend having been down below for a season.
Florian Lejeune – could be big player for us this season
You cannot get away from that.
We also have seen some ridiculous prices and loan fees being asked for our top targets.
It’s not only Mike’s unwillingness to spend money this summer but in truth, he hasn’t helped much either.
Call us daft and stupid (what again?) but we still think we’ll finish in the top ten next season – simply because of Rafa’s brilliance and the unbridled passion of our fans.
Let us know how you think we can fare this coming season.
