Alan Pardew saw his Newcastle United side come back crashing down to earth last night with a 3-0 defeat away at Swansea City.
Newcastle had climbed up to sixth in the Premier League on the back of four straight victories, and Pardew was once again the messiah on Tyneside.
But the Magpies are still considered consistently inconsistent, and the problem remains that you are never quite sure which Newcastle are going to show up.
The majority of the club’s business was done in the last January transfer window, with the Magpies consistently raiding Ligue 1 for it’s finest talent.
It meant the summers transfer business was met with huge frustration, as controversially appointed director of football Joe Kinnear was only able to bring in Loic Remy from QPR on loan.
After a decent start to the season, Pardew is set to be backed with January funds, and has already been busy trying to rectify some of those failed summer deals if rumours are to be believed.
But if new faces are to be bought in at St James’ Park, then there may well have to be some outgoings.
We have been busy discussing in the Football Transfer Tavern which players we think the fans would most like to see depart.
Here we countdown the top five.
