Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see their side start their Premier League campaign against Spurs this weekend.
The men from north London are seen as one of the best sides in the league at the moment and really could win the title this year so the Magpies are going to have to be on their mettle to get a victory.
However, with a raucous St. James’ Park crowd cheering them on the players will feel anything is possible for that game, and the season.
Whilst we wait to see how they get on, though, Rafa Benitez has been addressing the latest transfer rumours about the club – as quoted by Chronicle Live – and had this to say:
“I want to be clear, I am looking at different options and it’s not like I’m looking at just one name, it’s three or four (for each position).
“If we can’t get one then we go for the other one.”
For sure, then, Rafa the gaffer is still aiming to bring players in before the end of the window and our Magpies are as excited about that as they are about getting the season underway this weekend.
The Magpies will be well up for this weekend but they do still need to get in some more Premier League proven quality.
Benitez is obviously aware of the need to do that, too, and so it’ll be interesting to see just whether or not he can manage to bring in the players needed.
