Alan Shearer Confident New Striker Will Do Well At Newcastle


Alan Shearer thinks that new signing Salomon Rondon can do well in the Newcastle side.

He points to West Brom not exactly having a free-flowing side over the last three years.

Rondon is here on a season-long loan with no option to buy next summer, and Dwight Gayle went on loan in the opposite direction.

Rondon is a good hold-up player, physical and good in the air, and he could quite a few chances with the way Newcastle play.

Alan Shearer – thinks Salomon Rondon can do well on Tyneside

This is what Shearer said on TalkSPORT yesterday:

“I think in Rondon they’ve got someone who works very hard, will ask questions both ways,”

“Let’s not forget that he’s been playing in a very restricted system under managers at West Bromwich Albion.”

“Hopefully he might be a little bit freer in his play.”

Rafa will know exactly how he wants to use the big striker in the Newcastle team for the coming season.

And we should see the Venezuelan on the bench on Saturday against Tottenham  – and maybe he could even start after a full week’s training?

Otherwise, Joselu will start up front.

At West Brom, Salomon played 120 games with 28 goals and 10 assists over three seasons.

It’s going to be an important game on Saturday with Spurs short of many of their top English players because of England doing so well in the World Cup in Russia.

We have an excellent chance to take something out of this game.

Comments welcome.

    With so many Frenchmen on our radar
    Mention of Henry V going through France
    like a dose of salts could be a tad undiplomatique

    I’ve lost track of the recent targets but perhaps we could have s check list of the hot favourites Charnley will get over the line in the next 48hours , including

    Thelin
    Arter
    Bryan
    King
    Ings

    And ?

    Actually that could be a description
    of Jamaal

    When the blast of war blows in his ears,
    He imitates the action of the tiger;
    Stiffens his sinews, summons up his blood,
    Disguises fair nature with hard-favour’d rage;
    Then lends his eye a terrible aspect

    What Alan means is:-
    Under those tossers Pulis and Pardew

    Ancient matey
    It seems a lifetime ago that Jeremy toured in triumph at Glastonbury. Comrades sang his name all seduced by his easy going, low key, principled allotment Grandpa schtick.
    He’s a lot like Sunderland, the wheels have fallen off. It seems that Jezza is also having an affair with Dianne Abbott I have just been told about this.
    A fellow comrade suggested you should switch your support to Lady Nugee for leader a bitta class. Who is she?
    I didn’t want to show my ignorance.
    Food for thought Ancient then a relaunch by you after the window closes and comrades likely to notice your existence.

    The worst thing about this window is that we still have that donkey Joselu. If he sees nearly half as much playing time as last year I am sure we are going down. We got rid of three strikers and they where replaced by two non proven strikers. We kept our worst signing in Joselu who wouldnt even be in a legue 1 line up.
