January 7, 2013 in Premier League
Newcastle are currently reminding me a bit of a rock band. I know, you are all probably thinking I am crazy, right? Well, hear me out. Let’s call their return to the Premier League their comeback after a slight hiatus. Their first season or for this metaphor, album, was a solid return; good, but not spectacular, better than expected. The tricky second album followed, the pressure was on to avoid the second season/album syndrome but much to everyone’s surprise, they were fantastic, with players/singles such as Demba Ba, Yohan Cabaye and Papiss Cisse all fantastic, which secured them a place on tour in Europe. We now move into the present, with the difficult third album, and sadly for Newcastle, it has been a major flop, with a series of poor shows, and while they are still in Europe, the lead member has now departed for pastures new. With the wheels falling off the tour bus, they badly need to recruit, and there are two options that I think would be perfect for them.
