At Least One New Defender Essential Based On This Video Evidence

8 years ago

Pre-summer there was talk of strengthening the team throughout, which has then shifted to talk of a striker being the absolute/only priority.

Obviously it is unthinkable that Newcastle could go into next season without at least one new quality striker, or make that two if the Cisse situation isn’t resolved.

However, I’m really worried about the complacency with regard to other areas of the team, as though there are no areas of concern in midfield and especially defence.

Yes on paper we look to have a decent defence but they didn’t show it very often last term, even allowing for injuries.

Having conceded 68 goals in the league alone, surely we need at least one quality addition?

Watch the goals from the Rio Ave friendly below, surely even in a friendly this is shambolic against a poor Portuguese team who struggle to get a couple of thousand through the gates each week.
