Journalist close to Steve Bruce issues sickening transfer update on Monday morning

According to The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards, it’s now ‘unlikely’ Newcastle make another signing before the transfer window shuts next week.

Edwards – a self-confessed friend of Steve Bruce’s – states that we’ve spent our entire budget on a £25m move for Joe Willock and know that any arrival will mean a senior player will have to be left out of our 25-man squad.

He does accept that one loan signing is possible if ‘something attractive’ comes up, however it seems likely that we’ll now be left with the same squad that ended the 2020/21 season – despite the fact we’ve moved on the likes of Andy Carroll, Christian Atsu, Florian Lejeune and Yoshinori Muto.

Here’s what the North-East reporter has had to say in a grim Monday morning update for NUFC fans:

It’s blindingly obvious that we need another centre-back, with our ageing backline crying out for an injection of pace, athleticism and ball-playing ability.

Then in midfield, we look a soft touch and lacking in that midfield enforcer able to protect an error-prone defence. Isaac Hayden can be that when fit, but he missed large chunks of last season through injury and was forced off with a knock at Villa Park.

Even up top. What happens if Callum Wilson gets injured?! Dwight Gayle is the ONLY senior striker at the club to call on.

As ever in the Mike Ashley era, it looks like he’s happy to get by with the bare minimum and risk our Premier League status as a result,

  1. Doesn’t matter who you get – one still needs a MANAGER that can actually MANAGE = knowing when it’s the right time to get players off and on = leaving sub’s until the last 30 seconds is just a chap wanting to be paid off

    Get Lampard in ASAP = someone that has a point to prove!

  2. …I wouldn’t touch Phil Jones even if ManU paid 100% of his wages…

    ..he’ll just take up a seat on the bench alongside the other wasters Bruce has had a say on = Hendrick, Fraser,

    SELL Gayle – GREAT Championship Striker – and get a another striker!!

    If yr not using the ONLY other striker when 4-2 & 2-0 down = there’s something wrong!

  3. Get rid of Shelvey, Joelinton and Gayle, that will release funds and squad numbers for a centre half and a striker

    Do you understand the concept of reporting on different pieces of ‘news’ from different sources? Just because Luke Edwards says one thing at 11am doesn’t mean we’re going to ignore that another outlet says at 2pm.

    We share everything that’s being reported in the media – we are not the source. We’re a blog that brings all the news together and our readers can decide for themselves what they want to believe.
