Is Lemina better than Hendrick? Thats the question.

On par with the last few months of the season is at least a step in the right direction. 

I don't think anyone could be worse that Hendrick.

Well of course he is. Everyone is.

Yeah also shelvey has another season under his belt, god knows how slow and painful he's going to be to watch. Don't get me wrong its still shit, but it's better than Hendrick/Shelvey imo

What sort of player is Lemina? I can't say I've noticed him particularly in the past, my gut says he's one of those like Shelvey who doesn't get involved much.

 

Can picture Bruce introducing him as our next signing with something like " he can pick a pass, so our fans will enjoy watching him".

Just asked my WBA mate about Gallagher and he really rates him, and basically said he stood out for them and it was basically impossible to look good in that team. Said he's got phenomenal work rate, loves a scrap, probably isn't chelsea potential but defo big potential.

 

Also very mobile.

He clearly hasn't lived up to his supposed potential but my boy had some videos of him on YouTube (I know) last night & he looked decent in the clips from 3 or 4 of his clubs, albeit none of which were from his time at Fulham. Box 2 box, quite skillful, can tackle, pass, shoot, looked quite quick. Fook knows what's happened to him to drop off so much 🤔

He seems fairly busy, no specific specialism but runs around forward and back. Have seen him make a fair few errors and lose the ball for Fulham, IIRC.

I feel like he'd struggle to be actively worse.

Disagree that signing Willock means we'd be standing still tbh. We only signed him in January last season and this time round he's not going to need a great deal of time to settle in.

Then again, is it likely he’ll perform as well and get as many goals as last time? It’s a big ask. 
 

My uneducated opinion is that he realised his job was to do absolutely anything it took to save Newcastle from relegation - run anywhere, play anywhere, just get goals. Pretty difficult brief second time around.

 

But like you say, having him for a full season is probably better.

I’d be happy to have him, but I honestly hate how much we rely on loans from “larger” clubs to fill out our roster every year. Like a beaten dog mewling for table scraps. It’s pathetically small-time and a further indictment of our transfer policy and upper-level management.

Yep, absolutely awful. Same with Gallagher, although I think he’s also class. 
 

If the club can’t be sold than Ashley has to invest in it. But of course he won’t.

He's described as a tenacious box to box midfielder on his wiki page for what that's worth, those are definitely qualities we are missing. Although obviously it's not much use if he's useless when he's actually got the ball. Also seems his contract is up next year and that would be why we're in for him.

I've always thought Lemina looked like had something about him but perhaps wasn't applied correctly. Which is unfortunate because Brucey will make him fetch the babs after the match.

 

Greame Jones might get something out of him but it's another NUFC throw of the dice.

 

The fact that Shelvey is first name on the teamsheet basically makes out midfield selection null and void anyway.

Don't think Lemina is that bad, he was decent for Southampton in the first few months of 17/18 but then just tailed off. Him and Willock coming in would improve our options, getting rid of Hayden though and keeping Shelvey and Hendrick is absolutely brainless. 

 

Would take Gallagher too, also surprised no one's gone in for Matheus Pereira yet.

It's this exact strategy that contributed directly to the mackems ultimate downfall...relying on loans being their best players season after season until the luck ran out

Gallagher definitely, he’s very good. 
 

Probably fair on Lemina, he’s a bit of a punt. Just would expect that this is the worst possible place for him to discover his best form. Especially trying to run a whole midfield himself alongside JJ.
