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.

Our play might be boring, but Bruce has made some good signings
The 2020-21 Premier League season is well underway and this year’s Newcastle squad has a very different feel to last season. In classic Newcastle fashion though, despite the promise of a newly formed squad, results have been mixed.

It’s fair to say it hasn’t been much fun to be Newcastle United fan for the past decade and beyond.

Given the stature of the club, the iconic ground, the history and the huge fan base, demanding a team that can be competitive in the Premier League shouldn’t be too much of an ask.

Of course, we all know that hasn’t happened. Instead, the Magpies have endured a difficult spell that has seen no chances of silverware, falling down to the Championship twice. (more…)

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…)

Newcastle United's treasure chest
Will the Toon’s warchest be overflowing?
The news that Newcastle United may finally secure a change of ownership has met with widespread approval from the club’s fans.

A proposed £350 million takeover by Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nahyan – a cousin of Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour – has cranked up excitement around St James’ Park.
