There’s some disagreement amongst Newcastle fans about who seems to be our number one striker target now – Watford captain Troy Deeney.
In the last three seasons in the Premier League with Watford he’s scored 27 goals in 93 appearances and he’s a Premier League player with lots of experience.
Newcastle were after Cenk Tosun of Besiktas but he’s going to Everton for around £27M and he is out of our price range in this transfer window.
With Mike Ashley, he will not give Rafa a lot of money although surely we can afford £10M for Deeney without having to sell players?
Newcastle seem to be the paupers of the Premier League at the moment so Rafa must get who he can afford as we try to avoid relegation.
We’d take Troy Deeney because we think he can score goals for us under Rafa’s coaching.
Troy Deeney – he could save us by scoring some goals
He’s better than not bringing any players in during this window – and strikers are what we need – and at least two.
If Ashley will not give Rafa money to spend this month that would be putting Newcastle at great risk of relegation and would be the worst decision Ashley has ever made at Newcastle.
Hopefully his last one.
Rafa seems again in the position of bringing in players he can get, rather than bringing in the players he wants – just like last summer.
So Rafa banishes Mitrovic because his on-field stupidity means he can’t be trusted. But he wants Troy Deeney with his 3-game violent conduct charge & 4-game ban for an idiotic tackle? Yeah, right #NUFC

FYI – I’d take Walcott and Deeney in a heartbeat. #NUFC

#nufc Deeney 102 goals in 289 appearances for Watford. And people are saying keep Mitro!! Not saying he’s a super star but way better than what we have now.

Absolutely do not want Troy Deeney at #NUFC he’s a nut case, Lascelles will have him decked in the first training session.

The reality is, Deeney is out of our Budget. The harsher reality it that he’s not even good enough, and yet still out of our budget #NUFC

Troy Deeney would be like Batman for #nufc not the hero we deserve, but the one we need right now.
