After a torrid term Newcastle United find themselves risking a second Premier League relegation in the club’s history, and the Magpies fans here in the Transfer Tavern are worried!
The defeat to Norwich at the weekend, in hindsight, could be the defining moment of Newcastle’s season.
They desperately needed something from that game and the manner in which they walked away with nothing was cruel…
However, they must pick themselves up quickly because if they don’t, they may as well wave goodbye to Premier League football next season.
In terms of the squad itself, the quality is above bottom three status but Newcastle’s defensive frailties have been showcased on a number of times and only Aston Villa have conceded more goals then the Tyne-Siders this season.
Firepower has been limited too, Ayoze Perez and Aleksander Mitrovic are both fine goalscorers but they’ve lacked creativity in behind, with the losses of Hatem Ben Arfa and Yohan Cabaye.
Whether or not they can complete a great escape, here are FIVE players the Magpies need to let go in summer……
