Steve Harper. 197 appearances for our most loyal servant and the chance to get to 200. He bleeds black & white and with Rob Elliot’s confidence shattered after Liverpool, then why not bring Harper back?
The bench last night showed Newcastle were down to the real bare bones and any further injuries would be a killer, though there could be a chance of Massadio Haidara coming back in for that Benfica match at St.James’ Park.
While funds will be available in the summer I think serious money will need to be spent elsewhere, especially for another striker, so it would make sense to try and save a bit of money elsewhere in the squad.
If you go back to the Spurs match less than a month ago, with all options available, Alan Pardew’s first choice defence was Krul, Debuchy, Coloccini, Taylor and Santon, a completely different back five!
I say thanks for the Goals, thanks for the 7million, take your syrup and see ya. I say to Danny Simpson, sign or go. I would prefer to go and get players who have made it known that they want to play for the club.
Danny Simpson talks of ‘…we’re doing all the right things’ and ‘…we just have to keep doing what we’re doing’ don’t tick any boxes for me. They say the definition of insanity is doing the same things time after time and expecting a different result.
