Two Strikers Likely To Leave Newcastle This Summer

The Northern Echo are reporting today that it’s likely that two of our strikers – Andy Carroll and Dwight Gayle, will leave the club this summer.

With one year left on his contract, Newcastle could well cash in on Gayle to a top Championship club this summer.

There were reports in late January that Newcastle had agreed a loan deal with West Bromwich Albion for Gayle with an option to buy in the summer for £15M.

It did not go through because Steve Bruce needed Gayle at Newcastle – we needed eery striker we could get at that time.

Whether we can get £15M for the former Crystal Palace striker in the summer remains to be seen, but Dwight has proven, again and again, he can score goals in the Championship – though not in the Premier League.

The fee will also help Newcastle bring in one or two top strikers in the summer.

And if that’s all Newcastle do this summer, we should have a much better team next season since we have been creating chances this season, but haven’t been able to convert enough of the chances.

And it’s a toss-up whether Andy Carroll will get another year at the club and it’s well known he’s been out of action and injured since early January.

Andy is as frustrated as anybody, but it seems that his body just cannot take the rigors of the Premier League, and he’s been dogged by injury since he left Newcastle on January 31, 2011, to join Liverpool for a massive £35M.

On form and fit, Gateshead-born Andy Carroll is a formidable striker and is almost unplayable at times.

He’s also extremely popular with both fans and players and what you see is what you get with big Andy.

This summer could be an opportunity for manager Steve Bruce to clear the decks and bring in two top strikers and let both Andy Carroll and Dwight Gayle leave the club.

We shall have to wait and see.

Let’s hope this coronavirus pandemic is over sooner than later and we can all get back to our normal lives.

In football, that will probably start with the transfer window this summer.

We hope that’s the case.

Howay the Lads!!

    Lorry drivers in the frontline of maintaining vital food and other supplies are continuing to be ostracised and denied access to toilet and hand washing facilities at hubs servicing major UK companies around the country – despite an intervention by Public Health England. (Grauniad)

    It’s good to see you’re writing more frequently. Can we assume that you don’t need to be keeping less of an eye on Neil and Mrs Neil. They’ve been doing a fine job and you’ve clearly taught them a lot – The Wife seems to have black and white blood coursing through her veins!

    We needed two top strikers before Joelinton was bought and as, according to some, the lad’s been played out of his best position we still need two.

    The word ‘top’ might prove difficult though and Prem ready top strikers don’t come cheap. Though in saying that, Tino Asprilla and Demba Ba slotted in without too much time to adapt. One must wonder how much the likes of those two would cost these days. Let’s not forget that there must be a lot of raw talent in the lower leagues. Remember Alan Shoulder who did the business for a season – before he was found out?

    Thanks for all the good wishes. I’m no hero though – just feel it’s the right thing to do.
    The doctors and nurses are the ones really in the firing line and some of them with young families. Can’t deny I’m a bit apprehensive about it especially when the first question I was asked was ” have you got any underlying health issues”

    The more we hear about our behaviour, we must question what the hell’s going on in the UK. Has decency been exercised from the British psyche? Is it unique to the UK? Is the behaviour you’ve reported being seen in France and other parts of Europe?

    While decency is being shown in many quarters then so is selfishness. We appear to be witnessing the product of Thutcherism among the selfish, the greedy and the heartless

    Does reference to a certain lady offend you when negative comments about Abbot are ok?
