Your Say – Who would you like to see pull on the Black and White?

Words by Kevin Doocey on .

I’m sure you all have players that you’d love to see play at Newcastle and now since Mike Ashley is staying and will supposedly ‘back Chris in the market’ then we might expect some new players to arrive, or certainly hope so. One of the players that Chris has to decide on in the very near future is Marlon Harewood. The bulky striker has been on loan from Villa since September and has failed to produce anything special so far. Saying that, he hasn’t had a proper run at things and booing from the home fans made his job even harder. However, he recent performance/effort v Peterborough saw him earn a warm reception amongst the Geordie faithful.

If I’m to name one player I would love to see strut his stuff for Newcastle, then it would be Per Ciljan Skjelbred. The Rosenborg midfielder is a Toon fan at heart and has reportedly been interested in a move to Newcastle for a few years now.

These are the type of players that we need at the club now, especially in the Championship. Fancy, tricky lightweight wingers are all good and well but in the CCC, things are rough, and for a reason. We need strong physical players which can put up with the challenge, the likes of Steven Taylor, Kevin Nolan and maybe even Joey Barton spring to mind.

All in all, we need some skill on either wing and we might have it with Jonas Gutierrez. He’s a good runner and now that he’s scored his first goal for the club it could mean more to follow, and we certainly hope so.

With a mixture of creativity and run of your mills players, Newcastle stand a very good chance of being promoted based on their current form. Needless to say, there’s a long trek in front of us.

Anyway, what players would you like to see Chris sign now that there’s supposedly ‘cash’ available.

An no Lionel Messi’s please 😀

Comments welcome 🙂

This subject I find the most boring... lets get out the manager game and pick who we want however Skjelbred would imo be a good choice and someone hopefully with some skill and actually wants to play for NUFC and maybe not (just) the money! My worry would be that KK must have had a chance at signing him but went for Guthrie instead, well that's how it seemed. Considering who owns our club I'm not gonna hold my breath for any significant signings, only loanee thats made any real impression so far has been Simpson. Only player who I'd love at Newcastle some day would be J Cole, maybe 2 years ago we might have had an outside chance of getting him, now we have no chance.... Thanks to the owner!

I don't think we should be debating who we want to bring in it's more a case of who we want to stay in January that is more important because if Ashley gets his way then I can see a few players moving on with the likes of Hull and Portsmouth sniffing around for guys like Nolan. I think Enrique will be off as well back to Spain or a Premiership side as he's far to good for the championship. Another concern would be some of the bigger teams poaching our youngsters as well like Vukic, Ranger and Kadar.

i just wrote about 5 paragraphs saying who we should try and get and why but it didnt post and cant be bothered to rewrite it all. Any one of these would put a smile on my face...Beckford, Aron Gunnarson, Kilgallon (although hes injured) and Simpson and permanant. Also we should do everything to keep Enrique as with the way he is going he is only a few seasons away from the Spainish first XI as its very rare to see a player of his physical size and power matched with his pace.

Ian, I doubt Hull or Portsmouth even a league up would be able to offer Nolan the contract he is on now at SJP. Your right that players like Carroll and Ranger might be plucked away but I dont think Ashley would let them, not because of the fans, it would represent a loss of investment. Unless they bid something stupid like 5m+ of course which I doubt would happen. I dont think players like Enrique will be off in Jan but they certainly will in the summer if we're not promoted. For this reason I think if we dont go up this season we wont for years. Like boro lol

''I'd love it'' if Alan Shearer could play again because my god he'd show these guys a thing or two about how to score goals even now they still havent and i doubt they will find anyone to fill his boots 101% commitment a true Geordie Legend
