If this new transfer link is true, Mike Ashley’s NUFC are asking for trouble – When will we learn?

There was a story in The Chronicle over the weekend claiming that our scouts have been eyeing up Lille striker Victor Osminhen ahead of the January window.

The 20-year-old striker has been in great form this season and has already scored 8 goals in 11 games, and if reports are to believed the kid is an outstanding young talent.

However, it won’t have escaped any Newcastle fan, and it’s certainly already been commented on, that the circumstances are eerily similar to our last relegation.

Just like then, we have a squad with undoubted talent but unproven in the Premier League, with a big question as to how to score goals and a manager who simply isn’t good enough to find the answer.

That makes the latest transfer rumours about January targets confusing to the logical thinker, but in the way Ashley and Charnley run the club, predictably reckless. An unproven 20-year-old is not the answer.

Osminhen could come in and be brilliant, but it’s just so risky signing yet another prospect, who is making a big step up in quality and is expected to hit the ground running.

We all saw how Rafa had to fight to get experience in with Rondon, but the arrogance of the Ashley and Charnley to persist with a policy that has already wielded disastrous results is beyond baffling.

I agree with Einstein, it’s insanity.

  1. “Just like then, we have a squad with undoubted talent but unproven in the Premier League, with a big question as to how to score goals and a manager who simply isn’t good enough to find the answer”.

    As an average Anti-Ashley and Pro-Rafa punter, and taking into consideration your reference to relegation for some reason you seems to think that Rafa, who had one of the lowest goal tallies on record was actually good enough, and that Brouce is not.

    So at which point did Rafa “find the answer” to our goal scoring issues, taking into consideration we were in a relegation battle both the years he was in charge in the Prem?

  2. With the budget and constraints that Rafa Was working within, God would have struggled to avoid being in a relegation battle.

  3. To be honest we have some great attacking players… the problem is we set up and sit way too deep.. so when almiron and asm get the ball they are still in our own half..its 40 yards before they even reach the pen box…. they need to be getting the ball inside the other half… if we continue to set up so deep we will of course hardly score and get relegated yet again…
