Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are really looking forward to seeing their side get going in the Premier League against Tottenham on the opening day.
The men from Tyneside have certainly been waiting patiently throughout the summer and now there is just two weeks to go until Arsenal and Leicester get us underway for the new campaign.
For sure, then, the Magpies will be hoping for a positive season that sees them stay up at the very least whilst they’ll also be looking to see stability stay throughout the course of the campaign.
Indeed, a lack of that has blighted the club in past seasons but it appears as though the feeling is upbeat at the moment – as per Mark Douglas on Twitter:
Sense the #nufc mood music improving these last few days. Lots of work still to be done but Rafa v.happy to get Merino.

Fans, then, have reacted to that and so here is the best of what has been said:
Definitely agree with that. One question though, do you think the window will be defined by who the striker is we sign? #nufc

He sounded much more positive tonight

Bet that doesn’t make the national media though. Unless it’s “RAFA IS HAPPY, HAPPY HE’S LEAVING THE TOON!”

Time to shift players out so we can bring more in

Some positive quotes coming from the talk-in tonight too, suspect that will have calmed and reassured many of the doubters

The Daily Mail will be disappointed to hear that
