‘Step up, Charnley’, ‘Canny player’ – Newcastle United fans urge club to land target after UCL showing

The Newcastle United fans in the Transfer Tavern can only dream about Champions League nights from days gone by, though that’s not to say that life isn’t going well on Tyneside right now. Indeed, Rafa Benitez has the Toon ticking along nicely, despite some problems during the summer transfer window.

With that in mind, the punters propping up our bar are excited about the potential dealings Benitez could pull off during the New Year sales. While Mike Ashley may not have backed his man in the market, a potential new owner could, meaning the Magpies could take a step closer to restoring former glories.

One man who did impress in the Champions League last night with a Toon connection was Besiktas star, Cenk Tosun. The Turkish marksman bagged two goals for the Super Lig champions away at Monaco last night, seriously impressing the punters clad in black and white who frequent in their droves.

Newcastle’s forward department is a relative cause for concern right now, so links with a move for the 26-year-old have excited our Toon-mad locals. As you can imagine, his showing last night certainly made a mark on them.

With that in mind, here’s a look at how Newcastle fans reacted on Twitter to Cenk Tosun’s Champions League performance.
