Our Newcastle United fans here in the Transfer Tavern were hoping that Rafa Benitez could have pulled more rabbits out of the hat in this winter window. Indeed, life hasn’t been all too exciting on Tyneside of late.
Few would doubt that Newcastle are in desperate need of reinforcements right through the team and, after a horrendous summer transfer, the Magpies should have gone harder to bring players in.
Mike Ashley and the board have been caught up in takeover talks for the past few months, with it not really going anywhere, much to the annoyance of the Toon Army in the bar. Only late on has Benetiz been given the green light to allow players in, which may be too little too late as they are set to miss out on many of their targets.
After a flying start to life back in England’s top flight, things haven’t been the best for Benitez and his men. With that in mind, our landlord today, takes a look at TWO players Newcastle may regret not signing come to the end of the season…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
