Poll – Which Former Premier League Striker Would You Prefer As A Free Agent?



If Newcastle do have to go the free agent route for another striker this summer, there are plenty of options available that have Premier League experience. We have to remember that we are down three forwards this summer in Salomon Rondon, Ayoze Perez, and Joselu.

We have just signed Joelinton from Hoffenhemim who will be our new number nine and we also have Dwight Gayle returning from loan at West Brom.

Transfer target Allan Saint-Maximin, usually deployed as a winger, would also be able to play upfront though I wouldn’t recommend he do it too often.

Newcastle will need to bring in another player who can lead the line this summer.

While all of the free agent strikers have glaring issues, (I mean there is a reason each they are currently available) some of them could do a decent job under the right circumstances.

We have compiled a list of six current free agent strikers who have at one time played in the Premier League. Most of them have played for some of the upper echelon clubs in England. Most have even been linked with Newcastle at one time or another.

All are aged between 28-30 and admittedly have their best years behind them.

However on say a two year contract, which of the following six strikers would you choose as a free agent signing this summer? This is assuming that Newcastle are unable or unwilling to purchase another out and out striker this summer.

We see a few of the choices as probably unrealistic, especially Mario Balotelli. However we feel Andy Carroll, Danny Welbeck, or even Abel Hernandez could be decent options as cover or a late game substitution.

What do you think? If you had to choose, who would you go for from the following six?

    Difference between Baloney and 22 is : baloney talks a load of absolute SHlT about a load of absolute SHlT. Toon 22 has a purpose at least.

    Nope, I’m not with the herd, never was. I’ve been with this blog since it’s inception. Never here for an argument, only to share my passion.

    Didn’t mean for you to be contacted.
    Just anyone who hurls insults at others for having an opposing opinion.

    martoon, the warning was private – it was tony himself who told everyone.

    Who knows who else has been warned? Could be that there’s been a few. Not seen toon22 tonight, as it happens.

    I do wonder why Bills is getting his knickers in a knot – nobody’s been banned, just asked to moderate their tone (no pun intended)

    Some needed to do so, honestly

    Neil’s calling out of Tony B could be a Ratner prawn sandwich moment for the blog.

    It is for me.

    I’m not posting again on a NUFC ‘sipporters’ blog that supports the crap written by toon22 and his supporters.

    Or Ed and Neil writing threads which deliberately set out to incite their bile.

    I’ll be no loss.

    But neither will this blog to me.

    HWTL.

    Finish in the top 10 and RAM THE BILE BACK DOWN THE NEGGERS THROATS.

    It was detected by several of us a few weeks ago that there were serious wrong un’s infiltrating this great forum with an agenda to disrupt and destroy any solidarity amongst blog members that have finally decided that enough’s enough of this Ashley piss take.
    Completely destroying the blog appears now not to be off limits as it transpires with attacks on the blog’s very infrastructure and modus operandi.
    I’m sure Ed and his son Neil have been subjected to enough trauma and disruption in their lives not to be affected by this blatant attack at the heart of the best and most influential NUFC blog in existence .

    This is so obvious due to it’s persistence and aggression that anyone responding to these plants can only be adding to the problem.

    Abe: I am going to go out now to downtown Chicago as it is such a beautiful day and take some pictures. For a friend who has moved to Seattle. Any requests.

    I will put one on as an avatar anyway as know you will have forgotten what you said by the time I get back.
