High Percentage Of Fans Think This Was A “Good” Transfer Window For Newcastle

Newcastle finished a good summer transfer window with Newcastle bringing in a number of experienced Premier League players

It looks like Newcastle spent approximately £35M in outlay, not including loan fees or signing-on fees paid to the incoming free agents.

We somehow lost our transfer window last night, at just the wrong time (Murphy’s Law in action) but we have recreated it and this is what it looks like.

Was This A Good Summer Transfer Window For Newcastle?

Callum Wilson – an excellent signing by Newcastle for just £20M

We brought in some good experienced Premier League class players including Rick Hendrick, Callum Wilson, Jamal Lewis, and Ryan Fraser.

All four are likely starters this season when things settle down.

It’s an impressive window and sensible work by Steve Bruce and Head of Recruitment Steve Nickson.

Unfortunately, we couldn’t move the unwanted players out – Rolando Aarons, Christian Atsu, Achraf Lazaar and Henri Saivet.

Aarons documents were said to be 2 minutes late (received by the league at 5:02pm) and so his deal to Huddersfield Town didn’t go through.

That seems rather ridiculous that they wouldn’t allow that.

So all four will remain on the wage bill, and will need to wait until January to see if some cubs want them then.

All four players have contracts that run out next summer, so if they don’t find clubs permanently in January, they will be released by Newcastle next June.

The Magpies may even want to let some of them leave as free agents come January, just to save on their wages.

It’s estimated their wages amount to around £100K/week in total – so in about 9 months, through next June, that’s about £3.6M approximately.

So that part wasn’t successful, but otherwise it’s been a solid window for Newcastle, and the club showed a lot of common sense and improved the squad.

What do you think?

    That little dummy and turn by Werner reminded me of Guidjohnson for Chelsea too.

    Isolate Pogba , play St’ Max on the right first half see how Shaw takes it, he’s got a short fuse so we will see him booked at least.

    Rashford is unplayable at times so will need some attention, disrupt their midfield effects Rashford , job done .

    Oh and pop the ball in the onion bag 5 times.

    Prediction ..Newcastle Uni5ed 5 v Man Utd 3.

    An early goal for us and little OGS will be sweating beads, this will in turn transmitt to the team and they will have a bad attack of the squeaky arse variety.

    Let’s embarrass the greedy aloof Man Utd.

    It’s a 3-2 To the Toon realistically ..Shaw sent off.

    I don’t think Shaw will play, they’ve signed that Telles lad and there’s talk he’s going straight in.
    There was an excellent fake Luke Shaw twitter account saying something along the lines of “when I said we needed to make some signings I didn’t mean my replacement” along with some dig about Harry Maguire.

    Someone made a good point about the Henderson/Mane offside. They need to change the rule to if there’s a body part onside then the goal stands.

    From earlier, sorry if I came across a bit donkeyist. I actually have a grudging respect for Henderson.

    However, the other one would still be a pr1ck even if he was one of our own!

    Tsunki is probably preoccupied with yet another creative writing course, in which the learning objective is to say very little with as many words as possible.

    Jail it will be good if you at least manage to see the second half, i would settle for a scrappy boring match as long as we win, but it would be even better if we won 5-0 playing really exciting free flowing football ha ha ha we can only dream

    That net spend of 35 mill.

    How much was the offer for the frenchie in January, 35 mill?
    If we say that was a legitimate offer.

    So we could assume the cash spent in summer window was already there?

    Would have thought there would have been more cash to spend after another tv money payment.

    Could be keeping the books as was for takeover purposes, healthy balance etc

    Jail, ref FPL

    Me Captain Werner 2 goals and assist thus far, good lad. Glad I didn’t press the button on him now, but it was close!

    Dropped a bollock with KDB though, didn’t check it in the week and realise he was unserviceable!

    With a bit of Starmer hindsight I should have swapped him out ant took the 4 point hit.
