19 Premier League clubs spend over £700m on 63 signings – Newcastle United stand alone

1 month ago

Premier League clubs are all preparing for the big kick-off in a week’s time.

All of them doing their very best to strengthen the playing squads and ensure they are in the best possible shape ahead of the new season.

I say ‘all of them’…that should really read ’19 Premier League clubs’ are doing all they can to be fully prepared.

This is day 59 of the summer transfer window and 19 Premier League clubs have signed at least 63 players (see below) and committed spending of over £700m, so far.

One club though is valiantly trying to keep that ever rising total down.

Step forward Mike Ashley and Newcastle United. The only Premier League club yet to sign a single player in this transfer window.

Even more embarrassingly, Steve Bruce continues to do his master’s bidding, ever willing to keep spreading misinformation to deflect from the horrific neglect Ashley is showing in terms of ensuring Newcastle United are in good health for the 2021/22 Premier League season.

Steve Bruce humiliating himself time and time again, trying to claim that most Premier League clubs are the same as Newcastle United, that hardly anybody is spending money or likely to spend much in the weeks to come.

The reality is so very different, with not just the likes of Man City and Man Utd speculating to accumulate (points), but also all of Newcastle’s relegation rivals.

Yet not a single NUFC signing so far and this to a backdrop of having lost Joe Willock, moving 10 players off the wage bill since the last Newcastle United permanent signing, plus Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin still not back in training due to injury and ‘illness’ – NUFC’s only reliable goalscorer and creative player set to miss the start of the season.

You quite literally, couldn’t make this up.
