The Newcastle Player People Are Forgetting

8 years ago

It is a bit frustrating that people forget Yoan Gouffran’s main attributes are as a Striker.

That is his most comfortable position and he did a good job in this position for Bordeaux.

So perhaps we should consider playing him at his natural position as an important first team player and look for a good playmaker to work alongside him in this position.

Bafétimbi Gomis would be ideal to sit just behind Gouffran as he could provide set plays from Cabaye/Sissoko/Tiote; he could give solid through balls to Gouffran who can create clinical finishes.

I for one have every hope in our team this season, if the right one or two signings are made.

There seems to be a lot of people who believe we need to rebuild our squad from the inside-out…but I have hope for us, and I believe the negativity within the fanbase is so rampant that we should sit back and look at the amazing players we have…players that haven’t even had half a season to prove what they are capable of.

I am certain, given the correct 1-2 signings this close season (hopefully including Bafétimbi Gomis) we will do much better than our pitiful 2012/13 campaign.

If I’m wrong, I’ll eat my cap…and you can hold me to that.
