BBC's take on our prospects

Recommended Posts

Nickname: Magpies

Ground: St James' Park

Capacity: 52,193

Last season: 7th

Manager: Glenn Roeder (February 2006)


In: Damien Duff (Chelsea, £5m)


Out: Lee Bowyer (West Ham, undisclosed), Martin Brittain, Michael Chopra (Cardiff, £500,000), Alan Shearer (retired), Amady Faye (Charlton, £2m)


BBC Sport verdict: Newcastle boss Glenn Roeder performed miracles last season when he guided the side from the threat of relegation to a place in Europe.


Damien Duff has been recruited and his wing play will complement the midfield.


But without striker and talisman Alan Shearer, the Magpies may find it difficult to find the net.


Key man: Charles N'Zogbia. Has a fierce strike and can slice through defences.


No shit Sherlock? Interesting that they reckon our key man is the one who's stalling over a new contract...

Who say's he's stalling over a new contract?



Probably because for all Roeder's stating we're a club with ambition, we haven't signed a striker and are unlikely to win anything at all except mid to lower-table status, and the fuckwits in charge signed Duff who will keep him out of the starting line up.
