TWO Newcastle players named in £200m team of worst Premier League signings for 2019/20

The Sun have named a side consisting of the worst signings from last season – and it’s bad news for Emil Krafth and Joelinton.

Both NUFC players have landed themselves a spot in the starting XI following their poor debut campaigns, and it will come as no surprise to any Newcastle fan.

Joelinton cost us a club record £40m from Hoffenheim and the Brazilian managed to bag just two league goals in a very poor first season. The 23-year old’s performances put him in with a shout of being the biggest flop of the entire 19/20 campaign.

Emil Krafth has been unconvincing at right-back for an experienced Swedish international, and he looked even worse when deployed on the right-hand side of a back three during our defensive injury crisis at the end of the season.

Here is The Sun’s team of Premier League flops in full, which cost a staggering £207m combined:

  • GK: Roberto (West Ham – Free)
  • DEF: Emil Krafth (Newcastle United – £5m)
  • DEF: Craig Dawson (Watford – £5.5m)
  • DEF: David Luiz (Arsenal – £8m)
  • MID: Tanguy Ndombele (Tottenham – £55m)
  • MID: Danny Drinkwater (Burnley / Villa – Loan)
  • MID: Pablo Fornals (West Ham – £26.7m)
  • MID: Ravel Morrison (Sheff Utd – Free)
  • CAM: Alex Iwobi (Everton – £38m)
  • ST: Moise Kean (Everton – £29m)
  • ST: Joelinton (Newcastle United – £40m)

  1. KK, you missed one out.
    I think Bruce should be included in your list.

    Nothing for a pair, not in this game.


  2. A pair of two Brucies, a Dickens classic.
    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness. NUFC summed up to a T.


  3. No surprise to see Joelinton in there anyway.
    He bit off more than he could chew taking the No.9 shirt, although I’m pretty sure he was force-fed it. Almost feel sorry for the lad.

    £40m, my @rse. Another dodgy deal. I doubt he cost much more than 10m. Typical Ashley ‘wool over eyes’ tactic.

    WAS: £80 MILLION!
    SALE: £20 MILLION!
    90% OFF: £7 MILLION QUID!

    …heading needs changing to 2019/20.
    Unless you wrote this article in 2010 and own a time machine. In which case, where can I get one?


  5. Joelinten, I agree with.
    But Emil. No he has put in some good performances.
    You cant expect too much from a 5m rated player these days.
    Certainly no worse than Yedlin.
