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…)


Premier League Relegation Odds: Getting Better for Newcastle and Burnley

Newcastle vs Burnley
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…)


Newcastle United: Looking Set for a Busy Transfer Deadline Day

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…)


Has Mikel Arteta shot himself in the foot over Willock?

Joe Willock
Joe Willock: Toon’s only Summer signing.
One thing most Toon fans can agree about is that Joe Willock certainly made a very positive impression during his loan spell last season. If anything, it seemed as if he was almost too good (bear with me). With every performance (and every goal), it seemed as if he was drifting away from us, either Arsenal would see the error of their ways and want him back, or his price would escalate to the point where notoriously tightfisted Toon owner, Mike Ashley, would get the vapours at the sums being mentioned, but it didn’t. Willock was sold for around the price we thought he would be in the first place if the figures being bandied around (£20-25 million) are to be believed. (more…)


Are Newcastle on another road to nowhere in 2021/22 campaign?

Magpies in the mud?
Are the Magpies still stuck in the mud?
Newcastle United finished the 2020/21 campaign on a high note with an impressive run of results that allowed the club to place at 12th in the Premier League. The club has summed up mid-table mediocrity since their return to the top flight in 2017. Dating back further, the Magpies have finished in the top half on only three occasions since owner Mike Ashley bought the club in 2007. (more…)
