With the news likely to have a major impact on the club’s ability to compete in the transfer market, we take a closer look at the job manager Steve Bruce now faces.

Gonzalo Higuain – Getting on a bit.
There is no question that Newcastle United are thinking big ahead of the 2020-21 Premier League. The Mapgies are set to undergo a massive takeover and might become the second Premier League club to have Saudi ownership. All of the Premier League predictions point to one thing around Newcastle, and that is they are going to open their wallets. A new Saudi ownership would mean massive money to spend once the 2020-21 Premier League season rolls around.

Several players have been mentioned as potential transfer targets for the club ahead of the upcoming campaign, where the Magpies seem quite likely to fight for a European place if at least one of these players end up arriving at St. James’ Park. Without further ado, here are three transfer targets for Newcastle United ahead of the 2020-21 English Premier League season. (more…)

Bruce and Chopra
Bruce and Chopra: No love lost.
Ex-Newcastle United forward Michael Chopra insists current Magpies boss Steve Bruce doesn’t play football “the Newcastle way” as he urges the club to bring back Rafael Benitez.

Magpies eye chance to take flight with new owner

St James' Park.
St James’ Park – One of Britain’s finest sporting arenas.
Newcastle United are inching closer to having a new paymaster as the era of Mike Ashley finally seems set to end on Tyneside. There won’t be much wailing amongst the Magpies support and a teary-eyed farewell seems hugely unlikely. Ashley has long since forfeited the goodwill of Newcastle’s success-starved support.

The departure of Rafa Benitez last summer to be replaced by Steve Bruce was perhaps the final straw. Despite his local links, Bruce wasn’t a popular choice. His links to nearby rivals Sunderland did little for his popularity but more poignantly, Bruce is a typical ‘journeyman’ manager at this stage in his career. (more…)
