General NUFC stuff


Recommended Posts

The stats from last season suggest we’ll go close to relegation, but you can’t help feel these signings are enough to squeak over the line. Hard to say, depends how bad everyone else is, depends how many we lose when Dub is out, depends if Wilson stays fit and scores.

 

Probably keeps us above WBA & Fulham. Sheff Utd are the team I think might drop with them if it’s not us.

So, assuming Lewis comes in, and that's us done. We once again have too many players to register.

 

Matty Longstaff once again doesn't count due to age.

 

So that leaves 25 spaces for

 

Dubravka

Gillespie

Darlow

 

Manquillo

Yedlin

Krafth

Schar

Lejeune

Lascelles

Fernandez

Clark

Dummett

Lewis

 

Hayden

Saivet

Shelvey

Barlaser

S.Longstaff

Hendrick

Ritchie

Fraser

Murphy

Atsu

Almiron

ASM

 

Gayle

Wilson

Carroll

Muto

Joelinton

 

5 of those, by my maths, have to miss out. So who would you leave out?

 

Personally I'd go

Muto

Atsu

Krafth

Saivet

Gayle (won't be able to play till the next registration window anyway)

 

What do others think?

It’s astonishing that we have 30 professional footballers on the books and struggle so very hard to cobble a decent Premier League XI together...

barlaser won't count will he?

 

7 players highlighted there that we need to be aggressively looking to shift imo, probably will be one of lejeune/schar unless bacon gets another CB

Room for one more on top.

Surely Murphy and Barlaser go out on loan. Saivet and Muto either loan or drop from squad if they can't be shifted. Then you only need to cut 1 more. Easy choice is probably Gayle if he is out for 4 months, on the basis you can bring him back to the squad when fit again in January. We're also carrying 3 RBs which made sense when we didn't have a proper backup LB last season (especially given Manquillo is versatile) but seems unnecessary now we have both Lewis and Dummett.

 

Given the links to another striker and a CB, I assume we'll drop Gayle to take us to 25, offload a RB to take us to 24, offload one of CBs Bruce doesn't fancy (Schar or Lejeune) to take us to 23 and then go back up to 25 with the new striker and CB.

Yedlin, Saivet, Muto, Aarons, Ritchie and Murphy should be moved on.  Lejuene probably doesn't have a spot either.

 

Way too much deadwood.

Not just you who has said it, but don't understand the idea of dropping Ritchie from the squad? Our out and out wingers are ASM, Fraser, Ritchie and Atsu (and Murphy, although I don't think he's shown anything to suggest he can make it here). Ritchie is miles better than Atsu ever has been. I'd be game for selling Ritchie and investing in a younger, better winger (fat chance of that though) but dropping him from the squad would potentially mean Atsu is your starting winger for chunks of the season if ASM pulled his hamstring again - and a winger short if ASM and Fraser got injured at the same time (we've had worse luck).

Its a shame Lejeune is now considered deadwood, as if it was not for the injuries he'd be our best CB by a mile.

 

I also personally think Ritchie should be kept as he's a leader in the dressing room and given we're going to be in a relegation battle this season, we'll need players like that, he can also do a dependable job in a few positions, he's perfect for a backup imo.

Great read.

Love this bit. :lol:

 

Pingel scored just one goal for Newcastle and returned to Denmark after an unhappy six months.

 

‘The local newspaper was harsh on him. But I couldn’t tell him, it would make him so angry. He would say, “Here is my name, what does it say about me?”. I would say, “Ah, yes, you played okay, getting better all the time”. It actually said he was c**p!’
