Poll Shows Fans Think NUFC Desperately Need New Signings But Belief Is Ashley Won’t Deliver

8 years ago

With so much debate about the rights and wrongs of the lack of new signings and exactly what we can expect between now and the first match at Manchester City, we decided to gauge the fans’ collective hopes and expectations.

First we asked, ‘When Newcastle Line Up Against Man. City, How Many New Signings Do You Think United Will Have Made?’

A brilliant response and the thousands of votes came up with the following results and how many players fans expect to arrive;

0 – 18%
1 – 32%
2 – 25%
3 – 18%
4 – 5%
5 – 1%
More Than 5 – 1%

We followed that up with ‘How Many First Team Squad Signings Do You Think Newcastle United Need Before The New Season Starts?’

With that producing the following;

0 – 1.5%
1 – 3.5%
2 – 11%
3 – 37%
4 – 29%
5 – 12%
More Than 5 – 6%

The difference between what fans think WILL happen and what SHOULD happen is quite startling.

While 75% of fans think Newcastle will sign 2 players at the very most, a whopping 84% think United desperately need to bring in more than two new signings.

We wait to see what the reality will be but with fans believing the squad is desperately need of strengthening, we can only guess at what Mike Ashley sees when he looks at the team/squad.
