The results – Newcastle fans say how ‘happy’ they were with transfer window ins & outs

3 years ago

After the summer transfer window closed, we asked fans – ‘How happy are you with Newcastle’s summer transfer window?’

Once 11pm passed on Thursday night, it was six players in and 16 out:



Christian Atsu, Florian Lejeune, Jacob Murphy, Javier Manquillo, Joselu


Mikel Merino (loan)



Florian Thauvin, Kevin Mbabu, Daryl Murphy, Emmanuel Riviere, Siem De Jong, Grant Hanley

Loaned out

Adam Armstrong, Matz Sels, Ivan Toney, Achraf Lazaar, Tim Krul


Vurnon Anita, Sammy Ameobi, Yoan Gouffran, Haris Vuckic, Lubo Satka

So just how ‘happy’ were Newcastle fans?

We gave options from 100% happy down to 0%, with 10% intervals all the way down, this is how the final voting looked (1,639 Newcastle fans in total placing their vote):

100% – 2% (of Newcastle fans)

90% – 1%

80% – 1%

70% – 2%

60% – 2%

50% – 5%

40% – 5%

30% – 11%

20% – 15%

10% – 21%

0% – 35%

Taking everybody who voted, on average the ‘happiness’ rating was 19% in terms of Newcastle’s transfer window.

A majority of supporters (56%) were 10% or less happy, whilst it was 82% when you get to 30% or less happy.

Obviously 2% playing it for laughs (or Mackem infiltrators) saying they were 100% satisfied.

The results back up what the general reaction had appeared to be, Newcastle fans had hoped for better in the final days but only one signing in the last 34 days of the transfer window has left supporters fearing the worst this season.
