With all the talk of a possible takeover at the club, our Newcastle United fans inside the Transfer Tavern are hoping it means a big spending January transfer window for Rafa Benitez.
Newcastle are in a poor run of form of late, plummeting from the early season highs of being in the top end of the Premier League to flirting with the relegation zone in a matter of months. Benitez seemed a frustrated figure in the summer, having to work with a small budget to strengthen a newly promoted squad, and that’s not something that looks to have changed.
To ensure Newcastle have a strong second half to the season in order to maintain their Premier League status, Benitez will need urgent and important talks with Managing Director Lee Charnley to clarify a budget as soon as possible, despite the turmoil behind the scenes.
With that in mind, these two issues have got to top the agenda, otherwise, it could be a return to the Championship sooner than planned…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
