The Newcastle United Premier League squad has been revealed.

At the end of each transfer window, every top tier club has to present a list of up to 25 senior players who are allowed to then play in the Premier League.

After the closing of the summer transfer window each Premier League club had until 4pm on 1 September to submit a squad list containing no more than 17 players who do not fulfil the “Home Grown Player” (HGP) criteria.

The rest of the squad, up to a total of 25 players, must be Home Grown.

An HGP means a player who, irrespective of nationality or age, has been registered with any club affiliated to The Football Association or the Football Association of Wales for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons, or 36 months, before his 21st birthday (or the end of the season during which he turns 21).

Under-21 players are eligible over and above the limit of 25 players per squad. For the 2017/18 campaign Under-21 players will have been born on or after 1 January 1996.

With Freddie Woodman and Mikel Merino qualifying as Under 21s, it allowed all of the senior players to be named in that 25 man squad.

The late departures of Lazaar and Krul, meaning that even the totally sidelined players such as Haidara and Colback have been included.

Though it is quite another thing as to whether they ever make a squad, or even train with the first team.

Listed below are the 25 senior players in the squad, plus 52 (fifty two!) under-21 players (Contract and Scholars), which includes Merino and Woodman.

  • Peaky Magpie

    Colback in squad means one thing only,see you Rafa good luck “forever blowing bubbles” in the soulless stadium.

    • Jezza

      My heart sank when I saw Colback in the squad. The sickening thing is he’ll be back in the team when Pardew takes over.

      • Peaky Magpie

        The Chronic even had him down as a possible LB as he played there for the mackems??? Talk about desperate,a sure fire penalty given away every single game,you might as well have a lucky draw and pick someone from the crowd during warm up,shi giving Lardy ideas again !

      • Leazes Ender

        Stop saying Pardew will take over.

        • Kneebotherm8

          Why not? its a distinct possibility.

          • Leazes Ender

            He was driven out by the fans for goodness sake.

          • Kneebotherm8

            Would that matter to him or Ashley?

          • Leazes Ender

            There are tons of yes men out there he’s not coming back.

          • Kneebotherm8

            I’d hope not,but I put nothing past this regime, is JFK still alive?

          • Jezza

            Tragically yes he is.

          • Kneebotherm8

            Jeez,it couldn’t possibly happen,could it? Is he still a big pal of Mike?

          • Peaky Magpie

            Peter Beardsley the one that springs to mind.

          • Danimal

            He was sold. Like a walking, talking pair of Slazenger socks. Kerching!

        • Jezza

          OK I’ll stop saying it but there’s nothing any of us can do to stop it happening.

      • Kneebotherm8

        He’s the new left back cover.

  • Leazes Ender

    I presume every club with an Academy status actually fills it with pupils.

    I think we still have Good kicking around, though normally in the treatment room.
