Newcastle United: Fans slam Graeme Souness’ ‘rubbish’ takeover talk

Newcastle United: Fans slam Graeme Souness’ ‘rubbish’ takeover talk - Newcastle United

Many Newcastle United fans have slammed Graeme Souness’ ‘rubbish’ takeover talk after the former Magpies boss warned the Tyneside club that they will not find it easy in the transfer market.

Speaking on Sky Sports’ The Football Show (via ChronicleLive), the 66-year old claimed that attracting players up to the Toon will be difficult unless they can pay them way beyond the going rate. He highlighted that NUFC have had to pay a premium to get good players to go up there and is not sure whether the very best would follow.

Which of the following players was never signed by Kevin Keegan for the Toon?

The pundit added that players are more likely to be attracted to London because players can now afford the very best of what is on offer in England’s capital city.

Only time will tell whether Souness is correct but the new owners will surely be wanting to spend some of their money if they would like to attract better players to the football club and with that hopefully achieve success.

Nevertheless, these supporters slammed their former manager’s comments, with one fan branding them ‘rubbish’ before he had even read them:
