Newcastle United: Lack of striker transfer in January window has most Magpies supporters unhappy with business

Newcastle United: Lack of striker transfer in January window has most Magpies supporters unhappy with business - Newcastle United

Despite landing Nabil Bentaleb, Danny Rose and Valentino Lazaro on loan deals to round off an arguably good January transfer window for Newcastle United, some supporters still detest the fact that they have failed to land a striker – leading to protests on Twitter

According to Sky Sports journalist Keith Downie’s update on Twitter, Newcastle have also failed to land reported target Olivier Giroud (Sky Sports) – with manager Steve Bruce feeling he has ‘exhausted all options‘ in bringing a forward to St. James’ Park.

This news, as well as a tweet put out by the Chronicle asking if Magpies supporters are happy with the club’s business, has frustrated a portion of fans who desperately wanted the club to sign a much-needed striker. Current forwards Joelinton and Andy Carroll, while winning an impressive amount of aerial duels, 5.4 and 5.8 respectively, have only managed to score one Premier League goal between them all season, as per WhoScored.com. 

As a result, these Newcastle fans have bemoaned the news that they haven’t landed a star forward – here’s what they had to say on Twitter, as one supporter lambasted the ‘huge failure’ not to provide competition for Joelinton and Carroll.

How will Newcastle’s season pan out with their current forwards? Join the discussion by commenting below…
