Four of Newcastle United’s most likely Summer targets
Newcastle United are now 14th in the Premier League and will need some serious summer additions if they are to improve next season.

Since the January transfer window, when they spent over £90 million on five new acquisitions, Eddie Howe has continually been linked with several players.

The Magpies are said to have been handed a similar budget for the summer transfer window listed in Vwin’s report, including player sales. The recent 5-0 drubbing in the hands of Premier League champions Manchester City exposed obvious weaknesses that will require urgent fixing.

Here are the top summer targets for the Magpies. (more…)

Eddie Howe.
Howe: Still has a long way to go to change old habits
Undoubtedly, things have improved at St James’ Park since the early days of this season, when the Magpies were struggling to get out the bottom three. However, there is one thing which hasn’t changed, and has actually got marginally worse in the 20 games since Eddie Howe took over, goals, or lack of them.

Eddie Howe’s record for goals scored per game is actually lower than Steve Bruce’s was in the first eight games of the season before he was sacked. Whilst Bruce’s side scored an average of 1.25 goals per game, in his 20 games so far, Howe’s side has managed only 11 goals, with a goals per game average of only 1.1. (more…)

Newcastle and Burnley: Looking good for survival.
As we head into the final stages of the season, we take a look at the current odds on clubs being relegated and which ones we think will avoid the drop.

Less than two months ago, teams such as Norwich, Burnley and Newcastle were looking set for the drop with all three sides struggling to pick up points in the top-flight. However, a resurgence in form from all three has resulted in the bottom half of the table being much more of a level playing field, and has even dragged clubs such as Everton, Leeds and Brentford into the mix.

As of Thursday 24th February, the bookie’s odds of clubs being relegated from the Premier League are as follows: (more…)

Kieran Trippier & Chris Wood
Two signings so far, how many more?
Newcastle United have had quite a busy transfer window so far though unfortunately, this has been more to avoid relegation from the Premier League than build a squad capable of Champions League qualification as many hoped. There have been a lot of rumours as to whom the club will sign, and have set their sights on quite a few players in recent weeks. Lucas Digne looked set to join the club but then made the switch to join Aston Villa instead which come as a shock to some Newcastle fans. (more…)


How much will Newcastle have to improve to avoid relegation?

Eddie Howe and Steve Bruce
There’s much to think about for Eddie Howe.
Despite all the tales of future world class signings, future Champions League competition and all the rest, it has been a frankly awful season for Newcastle United so far which has seen them rooted within the bottom three. A nightmare December run of games against Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester City and finally, Manchester United certainly didn’t help, but as the games get ever more crucial, what lies in store in the next few games for Newcastle and our basement rivals in the race for survival?
