Newcastle supporters in the Transfer Tavern are full of confidence as their side make a hard fought start to the Premier League season.
For a club with the history that surrounds Newcastle United Football Club, many believe that this is where they belong, in the big time.
However, in recent times, this is something that the great football club has struggled to do. After getting relegated with some side last year, Benitez had to make a few adjustments bringing in fresh new signings and a change in style of play with the hope of curing any Premier League hangover.
After speaking to a few punters in the Tavern they believe that Mike Ashley is a part of the slump in progress of recent times as his lack of willingness to spend has got Benitez and the fans doubting his ambition.
During the summer transfer window, the Toon Army welcomed 5 new first team signings, winger Christian Atsu who spent last year on loan at the club, striker Joselu, defender Florian Lejeune, Javier Manquillo and starlet Jacob Murphy.
Although the experienced Spanish manager felt hard done by due to the lack of funding, he believed that these were the players that could give the fans the results they wanted and most importantly could do the job for him.
With the Newcastle fanatics here at the Tavern letting off a more optimistic vibe prior to the season, recent results have boosted the confidence as the side seem to have brought some resurgence back to Tyneside.
They see their side sit in a respectable 9th place with 7 games played, hoping that this fine form is long to continue.
This is what is believed to be the side that can provide success for the fans moving forward…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
