With 26 matches played already and the Championship being beyond the half-way mark, Newcastle United look in a good position to secure an immediate return to the Premier League.
Rafael Benitez has steadied the ship on Tyneside this season and is building Newcastle towards being a side that can compete once again, after years of the North East giants simply being placeholders in the top-flight.
With a capable squad, good form and a top-class manager, Newcastle’s need for January recruits is far from pressing.
Whilst a few new faces can bolster their ranks and depth, the best scenario is to build for a return to the Premier League.
Newcastle have the finances, the fanbase and the control to become a top-side in the Premier League, around the same sort of levels as Southampton and Everton, but need to ensure they do the right things in the coming windows to push towards that game.
This month, Newcastle should look to bring top young talent to St James’ Park that can develop in the future- either becoming stars within their own right at the club or being sold for a huge profit.
Newcastle need to ensure they have their plan set out for the next few years, ensuring they don’t falter once again and have a plan of action for if things start to become difficult.
With that in place, the club can become great again – and most of the football fans in the country would love to see that happen.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
