Report – Newcastle Want Luke Shaw In January

There’s a report in the Mirror that Newcastle’s under pressure manager Rafa Benitez is hoping to sign Manchester United’s left-back Luke Shaw on loan in January.

With the collapse of the team in the last two games and having lost our last four games in a row one of our strengths we had – the defense – has started to look all too vulnerable and we have conceded 7 goals in two games.

That includes the 3-0 loss to Watford yesterday at home when we were outclassed by a middle of the table side

Whether Newcastle have new owners or not in January Rafa has said there will not be a lot of money to spend so he will be hoping to bring in players on loan to help Newcastle stay in the Premier League.

THat’s all that matters this season.

Luke Shaw – wanted by Rafa on loan

Depending on how we do in our games through the end of the year could see us lower down the league table (we are currently in 13th place) and even fighting relegation – again.

That will make it that much more difficult to attract good players to the club.

So it’s very important that Rafa turns things around quickly so we can start picking up points again.

Shaw seems to have no future at The Red Devils with Jose Mourinho as the manager so he should be available in January.

The bad news is that there will be a number of clubs after him including his former club Southampton where he came through the Youth Academy there.

Even Tottenham could be interested, with former Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino said to be keen on a player he got the best out of while he was the Saints manager.

For some reason, Shaw has failed to show the form at the Red Devils that he showed at the Saints but he’s also had some serious injuries, and there’s still a good player there if the 22-year-old can get regular playing time.

If Newcastle continue to plummet in the league table, there needs to be some serious negotiations with Mike Ashley as to what happens in the January transfer window.

He has refused to back Rafa last January and in the summer transfer window and the chickens are now coming home to roost.

Ashley has always prioritized good financial records over the team that’s put out on the field – a huge mistake he keeps making at Newcastle.

    Who the fcuk is kimbo. Never see him/her post during the week yet comes on to post shite after a defeat. Lets all have a go at Rafa. I’m sure Pochetino will give up his CL team and rudh up Norf to help Ashley realise his dream of a 17th place finish year after year.

    We are tripe, not sure if that’s better or worse than garbage but you get the point. Hopefully this will make Ashley realise he has to get out now while the going is still good????

    I think that we need to go to a 3-5-2. It suits the personnel we have more than other formations.

    Mbemba Clark Dummett
    Murphy shelvey merino Ritchie
    Mitrovic Gayle

    Hayden sitting in front of three centre backs will give shelvey and merino licence to get forward and join the attack, but with 2 genuine strikers on the pitch we would carry more of a goal threat anyways.

    Ritchie at this level is more of a defensive player, he doesn’t have the attributes to make it was a winger or forward thinking player in this league. His work rate, tenacity, ability to get forward and back, and obvious ability when striking a football would make him a decent wing back.
    On the other side, if Moses at Chelsea can be converted in to a very good wing back, then Murphy could also be adapted this way, even short term. Yedlin would be the obvious pick but I feel he needs a spell out of the team. He’s had a busy schedule, what with flying to the other side of the Atlantic to play for USA on several occasions, I think it’s catching up with him and he needs a rest. If you want to go for a more defensive minded wing back, gamez could be an option.
    Dummett and Mbemba as the right and left centre backs would work well as they are versatile across the back, having played at both centre back and full back, so if they were to get pulled in to wide positions they would be comfortable with it.
    C’mon Rafa, give it a go.
