Have Newcastle Got The Best Midfield Outside Of Top 4?

8 years ago

Picture the ‘Price is Right’ presented by Sir Bruce Forsyth, Joe Kinnear is our contestant representing Newcastle United. Loic Remy come on down.

After weeks of vitriol and ridicule been levelled Joe’s way, it seems he has finally made the breakthrough he has promised.

Now, it remains to be seen whether Gomis, Bent, whoever will join Remy at St James Park ready for the first home game against West Ham on August 24th, after the Monday Night opener 5 days previous.

What seemed encouraging from Joe’s recent interview was that he and Pardew have compiled a second short list should moves for Gomis, Downing and Remy be unsuccessful. Maybe this partnership is not as bad as we all feared.

However, after having 2 months to recover after last season’s debacle there are many reasons to be cheerful. Krul has returned and looks back to his best, we are now spoilt for choice in midfield and it could be argued we have the best outside of the top 4 with the likes of Sissoko, Ben Arfa, Cabaye, Anita and Tiote, not to mention Jonas, Marveaux and Gosling.

There might be a chance this forthcoming season might not so be bad after all. Who knows?

It is our beloved Newcastle United we are talking about and crazier things have happened, we could have the Capital One or FA Cup in the trophy cabinet come May…
