Fans Disagree On Whether This Transfer Target Can Do The Job At Newcastle


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.

    I think it’s us older gadgies who think of them as kids, I still think of my sons as kids even both of them are well into their 40s. 🙂

    I’ve said my piece on Deeney but as an addendum, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO.

    we all respect your integrity and it would have taken quite a lot for you to break your silence, so anything to add, even cryptically?

    I for one am happy and hopeful to see what Hibbit’s alluding to without badgering him.

    I’m a bit tired of the Armstrong convo that has gone on for years.

    If we were linked with any of the top 20 goalscorers in the Championship this season people would be crying out about not good enough.

    Slight majority of fans seem to think Deeney isnt good enough.

    But Arma gets way too overrated because he’s one of our own.

    I know someone pointed out the height comparison but out of all of those on Aguero and Defoe can compare as strikers (Hazard, Mata? they dont play striker). Aguero is probably a top 10 in the world striker.

    Armstrong isnt setting the Championship alight and from what i’ve seen of him, he is simply too lightweight to play in this league (just as I think Perez is). That’s not just a comment on height but strength. Whenever he has played for the 1st team he’s looked well out of his depth. I’d get rid unless he performs well on his next loan.

    EGB – youre being a bit vague there.

    Personally if Troy Tempest is available I’d rather we signed him.

    Fair enough buddy.
    I just don’t think at a time when all Nufc fans are trying to find any snippet of good news.. You come on again with a cryptic message and leave us all hanging.
    You felt the need to do that but cannot follow it up with anything of significance

    Nah, it’s Deeny’s agent using the media to drum up interest in his client.
