Southampton fans aren’t happy and don’t share concerns about Shane Long potentially missing the Newcastle match.
Alan Pardew on Shane Long: “Do we want to bring a player like that to this football club? I don’t think so.”
Alan Pardew has claimed that home grown strikers such as Shane Long, Ross McCormack and Jordan Rhodes are overpriced and not good enough for Newcastle.
Newcastle United v Hull City is a great comparison of how two clubs are ran very differently in the Premier League, especially when it comes to transfers.
A long summer looms ahead for Newcastle United and the question is, can they pass the Shane Long test?
Alan Pardew’s transfer market woes are clear as he praises Hull capturing players who he would have liked to bring to Newcastle.
Alan Pardew has admitted that he twice made moves to buy Shane Long but has all but ruled out a move for him in January.
While I think it is a no-brainer that Newcastle need to add goals to the squad in January, adding yet another striker who may have other attributes but doesn’t add many goals, must be a doubtful policy.
Newcastle are facing the prospect of having passed up a great chance to move forward having failed to bring in an extra forward and defender in the summer.
Failing to do so in January could see things really fall apart, not just losing a few games.
