Newcastle Winter Target Scores Ronaldinho-Like Stunner

Newcastle were linked with having an interest in QPR left-back Ryan Manning last week. It was reported that he was being watched as a possible winter target who, at an estimated £3m, would be a bargain.

Manning’s contract runs out in the summer, but QPR does have an option to extend it to 2021, which they will likely do.

The former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international has been in outstanding form this season. In fact, ever since he moved to the left wing-back slot late last season, the 23-year-old has been unreal.

Yesterday, he showed what he can do as he scored this stunner of a goal near the half time mark at Hull City.

The Ryan Manning goal reminds us a bit of this famous goal by Barcelona’s Ronaldinho, which he scored in the Champions League against Chelsea.

Right-winger Jarrod Bowen, who is most likely our top target this winter, also scored a goal in the game for Hull City.

That was Jarrod’s sixth goal this season for the Tigers.

    The only thing that’s probably going to keep us up is our defense. Fernandez is a good player and he can’t even get in the team. Best crop of centre backs we’ve had in years.

    Ciaran Clark isn’t my first choice, but he’s a threat from corners. We have 5 half decent centre backs (Schar, Lejuene, Fernandez, Lascelles, Clark). Krafth, Carroll and Joelinton were poor signings. Willems and Saint-Maximin are decent.

    Also we’ve mainly had crap managers over the Ashley years which is another problem when trying to get the most out of the players you have. And that’s up to our buffoon owner isn’t it?

    We’re going down so this year and we’re not coming up so it could be the end of the road for his money making days at NUFC. Only when we’re in the red would he think about selling us.

    “You’re assuming Bruce had an input in Joelinton signing, which he obviously didn’t, because we know Ashley wanted to sign him for whatever reason and offered £20 million of his own money!”

    I’ve seen that suggestion mentioned on here before but from where does he get his own money?

    As Jane said earlier a lot of us would accept relegation if it definitely got rid of MA, but not if it was only a possibility.

    And in our hearts the thought of another relegation is abhorrent, but!

    If he continues to play and score goals like that I can tell you where he won’t be going!

    Sports Direct FC is a shambles from top to bottom.It only exists in its its current form to advertise a billionaires tat shops worldwide.Its a zombie club with no ambition.Its in the bottom three and will be there at the end of the season.Bruce is a serial loser that nobody else in the Premier League would touch with a barge pole.He will be gone before Christmas.Anyone that attends St James Park now are now part of the problem and just support the regime to their eternal shame.

    I want IT to be relegated and if the parasite doesn’t sell It I want IT to be relegated again.Then and only then will we be free of the parasite.I call NUFC IT now because it’s not a sporting enterprise that aims for success,it’s rotten to the core and it stinks.Anyone that goes through the turnstiles now should hang their heads in shame for supporting this abomination.
