Newcastle United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping to build on an already overachieving squad come January after an impressive start. Indeed, while the summer months threatened to wreck the club, Rafa Benitez is seemingly working wonders on Tyneside.
The Toon Army have enjoyed seeing their side rise to an impressive top half position as they continue to impress under the established Benitez. Having been held to draws in both of their last 2 games against what was pretty tough opposition they’ll be looking to build and improve on this.
In what is a very small squad of 21 players with what may be viewed as a little too many fringe players, it looks as if both some strengthening and removing of dead weight is needed when the January transfer window comes around.
With Benitez having to deal with a couple of regular starters out injured, the gaffer has made it evident as to what players will receive a regular inclusion in his matchday squad. So for the 5 or 6 players that are only used to fill the void in the case of injuries, its beginning to look as if these are the players that need to be offloaded when it comes down to the business in January.
So with it being very important for Benitez and his side to continue with consistency of performance, departures and arrivals could bolster this.
