These Things Are On The Minds Of Newcastle Fans This Wednesday Morning

In what is turning out to be an extremely difficult transfer window for Newcastle,  we’ll have to keep as patient as we can, although this week has seen us lose out on Chelsea’s 21 year-old Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo.

Rafa was very keen on both players and it seems we didn’t get Ojo because Rafa  wanted to buy him outright or have an option to buy him next year after the loan was finished, but Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was having none of it.

What we need is somehow to get a double breakthrough in the transfer market – but we also need to pay out the money for the players Rafa really sees as his top targets this summer.

These are the things on Newcastle fans’ minds this Wednesday with our first friendly of preseason coming up at Hearts on Friday night.

Looks like this is our 3rd strip – nice!!

    We haven’t always spent wisely – totally agree there!

    I am losing a little faith that Newcastle United cannot get players to commit that we have been after for at least two months. And then to see them sign for Palace and Borough, no offence but WTF is going on, yes I know we should relax but this is starting to feel like the same old same old. Newcastle needs to get someone signed this week that we actually have been looking at, to push a little faith back to the supporters. Everyone say’s we are being priced out? Isn’t our owner a billionaire? Is Palace and Borough really a bigger draw than St James and Rafa? Are Palace and Borough suddenly above us in the financial world now?
