I agree. I meant it more like, if only we had a Willems in the right too. Said it for long now, Manquillo is our best rb, easily IMO.

Shouldn't be anything other than Schar Lascelles Lejeune when all fit.

Ashley will be ringing round to see how much he can sell Lascelles for, given how we've performed without him.

Rafa is a god at buying CBs
:lol: I dunno. I'm starting to think it was us.
Trump will do well man. Don't know why but I really feel this will be the case. Really hope it will come to be that way.

it's no joke. he'll definitely be looking for buyers for one of lascelles, schar or lejeune.
and i think bruce will go along with it.

Aside from him being about to collect his pension and start considering a one-wayer to Switzerland is there any reason this bloke isn't being given a new deal? Been one of the better outfield players this season from what I've seen and seems an honest enough bloke.

According to Ciaran Kelly of The Chronicle, NUFC have the option to trigger an extra year in Federico Fernandez's contract.

Charnley will probably attempt to negotiate a new contract with worse terms in exchange for another extra year or something and then trigger the extension right before the contract expires after failing miserably with the negotiations making Fernandez disillusioned with the club and his performance levels drops as a result. Everybody loses. Job done.

Would far rather give a three year contract to this guy than either Shelvey or Ritchie. Fernandez is a leader, one of my favourite Newcastle players.

This f***ing club man!  :tickedoff:

Probably haven't started talks cos they were thinking in the back of their mind that it wouldn't be their problem since they were selling the club to the tyre kickers/imaginary buyers.

No doubt Big Mike will be 'flying back in to the country' to save the day himself and manually get involved in the running of the club which he says he has nothing to do with.

BULLSHITTERS the lot of them!!

Fede should be re-signed for sure.

Honestly there is no reason to get rid of any of the CBs, it's the upgrading at fullback, center mid, wingers and attack. IE, rest of pitch.

Not sure like. If 3 centre-backs is the preference, we suffer massively when Lejeune & Schar aren’t in it. I’d keep Fernandez to push Lascelles for the central role, but we need one or two who are comfortable in possession like those two are.

Might sound harsh but I’d sell Clark and sign an upgrade.

Lascelles/Fernandez
Schar/Lejeune/new ball playing CB
Dummett in an emergency. Ideally he would be replaced with a CB similar to Fernandez who’s a good defender and comfortable on the ball, without being particularly a ball-playing centre-back.

5 to 6 depending on how you set up, the 5th player if you play 2 at CB's should a young un, 6th if you play 3 at CB.

That's called having a squad cover, not something we usually do  :lol:

Come on now, we can't (or even should be trying to) find an upgrade on Clark that would be happy to be 5th choice CB. :lol:
