The Paraguayan made his first Newcastle appearance from the bench in our 1-1 draw at Wolves last Monday and looks all set to make his home debut against Huddersfield this weekend – a moment us Newcastle fans have been savouring for a few weeks now!
Here’s the ‘WOR ALMIRON’ flag being prepared in the Gallowgate ahead of Saturday’s game:
More brilliant work from Wor Flags here, with this guaranteed to make him pretty special when he enters the field on Saturday – providing Rafa Benitez does start him that is!
Details of the fee are not clear, with some claiming he’s our new club record signing and others suggesting the initial £16m paid means he is not just yet, but, either way, we now finally have a player worth getting excited about.
It’s a huge game this weekend – so we can’t just see this as the day we paraded our new big money buy – but his presence on the pitch and the lift it could give us fans may just be the boost we need to take all three points.
