Newcastle Now Reported To Want To Sign 23-Year-Old English Left-Back

Following the injury to Dummett on Sunday afternoon Rafa will want to bring in cover for the local lad at left back and also have somebody pressing Paul for the starting left back position at Newcastle.

And news today in the Shields Gazette that Newcastle has been linked with 23-year-old Bristol City left back Joe Bryan.

Joe has been at his home town club since 2009 and made his debut for City back in March 2012, in a 3–2 win over Leicester City at Ashton Gate.

Bryan came through the Youth Academy at Bristol and has so far played a massive 181 times for Bristol City with 13 goals and in the last three seasons, he has played an average of 50 times each season for the Robins.

23-year-old Bristol City left back Joe Bryan – Rafa interested

He can also play as a left-sided midfielder and left-sided wing-back and he is thought to be one of the best players the Bristol City Youth Academy has ever produced.

He has played consistently well for Bristol City for a number of years and Rafa must think he can make the step up to the Premier League if we are really interested in this Englishman.

The player has been linked with Leeds United earlier in the summer but if Newcastle makes a bid we think he could be very keen to join Rafa Benitez and Newcastle United in the Premier League.

Rafa can bring the best out of this young player.

What do you think?

    Haha so I guess I’m being the negative one. I usually think more positively lol.
    Yeah actually get what you’re saying. For me, I’ve thought for teams promoted the points gained against the top teams are bonus points. Beat the teams around you then they can’t finish ahead of you.
    With it being early in the season too, it’s good to make a promising start. We started poorly last premier league season and never recovered.
    Get these wins then we’re not relying on points against the big teams.

    In the end we can’t afford to have the mentality we’ve already lost against the top six, if we do we might as well start preps for another champo season.

    I think Rafa generally convinces his players that the game plan against whatever the team can work.

    Jib is literally speechless. Or was that a blank in Spanish?

    Who was it who used to complain that some posters didn’t have enough white spaces in their posts? He’d have loved that one.

    Another day gone and still no signings confirmed. We’re a bloody shambles and Rafa must be pulling his hair out.

    Ok, we need to offload some of the deadwood to free up some cash and Ashley could help by recruiting them into SD as ambassadors or whatever title he chose to give. The SD shareholders mightn’t be too happy though.

    Just thinking about the 80% partial take over of Southampton, it’s notable that the investor has the utmost trust in Southampton’s set up, infrastrucure, strategy and manage my being happy to leave the running of the club to the current incumbents.

    If Ashley’s looking for substantial investment would anyone in their right mind leave him, Barnes and Charnley to run the Club for them? Mmm, thought not. Rafa and his staff are probably the only ones any investor would trust.

    Let’s hope Ashley comes into the real world and set a sensible valuation of the Club that might attract a buyer or buyers – bearing in mind that we don’t own the freehold to SJP’s site – and let someone else get on with making something of Newcastle United.
