Revealed: 55% Newcastle United fans want Benitez to land 27-year-old to fix goalscoring problem

The Newcastle United fans in the Transfer Tavern were absolutely delighted to see Joselu score against Liverpool over the course of the weekend.

Rafa Benitez’s summer signing retains a fair amount of support amongst the Geordie faithful in our bar, despite the fact he’s barely proven convincing in front of goal since his move from Stoke City. Indeed, it’s not as if against the Reds was the most clinical finish in the world..

With that in mind, we recently asked our readers, would they take Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths? Scotland’s assistant manager Mark McGhee recently suggested that he believed the 27-year-old could cut it for the Magpies, having been touted as a potential target during the summer.

While the Scottish league isn’t looked upon favourably by those south of the border, the former Hibs man has scored goals for the Tartan Army as well as in the Champions League, so would come with some pedigree.

Interestingly enough, most of those who voted have revealed they WOULD take Griffiths. 55% believe he’d be a good fit, though 45% aren’t convinced he’s of the standard required.

Thoughts?
