  1. We need to start signing some quality, get in for Cairney/ Boudebouz?? and a decent centre forward, I would even look at carroll if he could retain fitness and play alongside Gayle, I would also go for Gibbs, if he is still available. Maybe Rolan
    Yedlin Lejeune Clark Gibbs
    Ritchie Shelvey Cairney/Boudebouz Murphy
    Carroll Gayle
    Subs Hayden, Dummett, Atsu Lascelles, Perez, Diame, Rolan
    Thats a decent team with backup, I would be happy with that for first game


  2. I think we should keep krul and give him his chance after the years he has devoted his career to Newcastle he deserves a chance
