Sven Botman – Welcome to Newcastle United, our number one target this transfer window has signed on the dotted line. Defense was clearly the priority and rightly so this transfer window. We have brought a mix of youth and experience into a shaky Newcastle United back line in 2022. With Dan Burn, Keiren Trippier, Matt Targett, Nick Pope and now Sven Botman all making the move to Tyneside. What can we expect defensively? What can Sven bring individually that made Newcastle covet and chase him so relentlessly across two transfer windows? At only 22 years old, will Sven Botman be able to make a ..read more

Blessing in disguise, Pope to Newcastle?

Blessing in disguise, Pope to Newcastle? With Nick Pope now signed for just £10 million. Martin Dubravka has been one of the few bright spots in the Mike Ashley era, with little to no competition enter Nick Pope a premier league shot stopper of the highest quality. To sum up Newcastle United’s transfer policy in one word this summer, the word that is most fitting is “wise” (thankfully no Dennis). Starting in defense and in positions of desperate need, we have improved our left back, goalkeeper and soon to be central defensive positions. Still, the question on everyone’s mind for the goalkeep ..read more

Ake’s and pains. Nathan Ake, a good contingency for Botman? With the Sven Botman transfer saga turning into the never-ending story, Newcastle under Dan Ashworth have several contingency plans. One is former Bournemouth, Eddie Howe favoured Nathan Ake. Ake, playing for Manchester City is a potential option should the Botman pursuit end in disappointment. What is clear, defense is a priority for Newcastle United and we will be bringing in a few more before the summer window shuts. But is Ake a good alternative to Botman and what can we expect? Would he be symbolic of an Evertonian-like transfer ..read more

Bullseye, was Matt the right Targett?

Bullseye, was Matt the right Targett? The first signing for Newcastle United is complete. With fans hoping this is the tip of the summer transfer window iceberg. Fan favourite Matt Targett came in and performed terrifically in the January transfer window and after a little deliberation has made the trip to Tyneside. Left back was the top priority this transfer window with a clear lack of quality prior to January 2022. The loan move for Matt Targett was a stroke of genius as he added composure, passing ability and good decision making to Newcastle’s back 4. But was Matt the right Targett? Tod ..read more

A friend in need, Lucas Paqueta to Newcastle?

A friend in need, Lucas Paqueta to Newcastle? It’s no secret Bruno G has been our best signing in a long time. Midfield is an area that Newcastle seemingly is not prioritising this transfer window. Remember, look at actions not words and with ink drying on Sean Longstaff’s new deal, it is looking unlikely Newcastle will spend big to reinforce the centre of the park. Rumours are swirling of a reunited partnership of Bruno and Lucas have not died down. With fans salivating at the opportunity of deploying an all-action midfield of Paqueta, Joelinton and Bruno. What would Paqueta bring to the t ..read more

Ismalia Sarr better than Almiron?

Ismalia Sarr better than Almiron? Right wing is seemingly a position identified by Howe and Dan Ashworth to be strengthened this summer. The most heavily rumoured targets are Ismalia Sarr and Moussa Diaby. Newcastle need a player that occupies progressive positions, makes intelligent runs, accurate crossing and can score a goal. These players are both rare and expensive in world football, even with the inflated transfer costs. We have covered Diaby in depth, the contingency plan seems to be Ismalia Sarr if the press is to be believed. Watford and Sarr had a disappointing 2021/22 season, woul ..read more

It’s Saturday November 27, 2021. Newcastle line up against Arsenal away at the Emirates. Fans fear the worst, even with the news of steady Eddie Howe’s first game in the dugout after recovering from a bout of Covid-19. Newcastle are still winless in the premier league and Arsenal have won 17 of the last 18 meetings in all competitions. An uphill battle ensues. With a midfield of Jonjo Shelvey, Joelinton and Joe Willock. The players graft and contain Arsenal, until the 56th Minute. We concede 2 goals in the second half. Finishing the game with 35% possession and a team passing completion of ..read more

The curious case of Calvert-Lewin. With the Ekitike deal looking closer by the day. The reports of Newcastle’s interest in Everton’s Calvert-Lewin quieten down. Having purchased Chris Wood in the January transfer window and the impressive end of season form of Callum Wilson. The case for Calvert-Lewin is a peculiar one. It is no secret, Newcastle United must score more goals next season to finish higher up the table. The question remains: Just how good is Calvert-Lewin? Dominic Nathaniel Calvert-Lewin, aged 25, standing at 6’2. Joined the Sheffield United youth team in 2005, as a box-to box ..read more

Howe good is Eddie, Robbed for manager of the Season? Brentford, Man city, Newcastle and Crystal Palace fans, will all feel that their manager was the deserved winner.
