Says a lot that out of those listed (2015 and 2016) I'd probably only be really irked if Abeid left, and even he has barely done owt. What a shower of s***.

While I'm fantasizing, as I tend to do when I should instead be productive, I decided to comb through the squad and determine who I'd dump completely. Because why not. It's fun to dream.

Goalkeepers

Jak Alnwick

Defenders

Mike Williamson
Steven Taylor
Fabricio Coloccini
Ryan Taylor

Midfielders

Cheick Tiote
Jack Colback
Jonas Gutierrez
Gabriel Obertan

Forwards

Emmanuel Riviere
Yoan Gouffran


Leaving us with, for next season...

GK: Tim Krul, Karl Darlow, Rob Elliot, (Freddie Woodman)

LB: Massadio Haidara, Davide Santon, (Shane Ferguson)
CB: Paul Dummett, Jamaal Lascelles, (Curtis Good, Remi Streete, Lubomir Satka, Kevin Mbabu)
RB: Daryl Janmaat

CM: Moussa Sissoko, Vurnon Anita, Mehdi Abeid, (Gael Bigirimana, Olivier Kemen)
AM: Siem de Jong, Sylvain Marveaux, Haris Vuckic

F: Remy Cabella, Rolando Aarons, Sammy Ameobi, Adam Armstrong
ST: Papiss Cisse, Ayoze Perez, (Adam Campbell, Callum Roberts)


Obviously I don't expect to see the likes of Marveaux or Santon in a Newcastle kit again, and players like Sissoko and Cisse could easily be sold on in the summer.

So by my count, in this fantasy world in which we have competent ownership and management, we'd need 2 starting CBs, a fullback, a CM, and a striker. At the very least.

Our refusal to buy players two summers in a row has left the squad in a total mess, like.

He'd be a better 3rd-choice keeper than Alnwick? :dontknow:

Though I suppose I should've just sacked him off with everyone else, I wasn't worried about depth at any other position. :lol:

Our squad has no strength in depth. The first 11 isn't even that good apart from a few players.

So Ryder is already peddling stories about free transfers it would have made much better reading if he printed a story about u21 players that are highly rated across Europe at lower clubs that could be bought, but I suppose that takes research, a bit of proper journalism and football knowledge . ah well I suppose a good copy and paste from the premier league website makes just as good reading .

Milner would instantly be one of our better players if he signed like, probably wouldn't get him though

Players with expiring contracts according to Transfermarkt. From that list I'd go for:

Konoplyanka
Ayew
Ings
Neto
Demarai Gray

Can only see us going for Ayew though.

Can't see us matching the wage demands given how flush with cash the rest of the league is.

There's only 2 people we need to get rid of, Ashley and Charnley. We don't have a big enough squad to let anyone else go, even if they aren't good enough. Because they won't all be replaced and definitely not with better.

Tbh I think Obertan playing is like giving the opposition a paid-off player.

As people were discussing the squad in the Rafa thread I thought I'd resurrect this thread.

Contract information taken from: -
http://www.nufc.com/2016-17html/squad.html

Out of contract in June 2017
Vurnon Anita
Yoan Gouffran
Christian Atsu (end of loan from Chelsea)
Sammy Ameobi

Out of contract in June 2018 (i.e. one year left on contract so Mike Ashley may be looking to cash in)
Massadio Haidara
Jesus Gamez
Daryl Murphy
Curtis Good
Tim Krul
Kevin Mbabu

NUFC.com have "tbc" for the contract length of some players e.g. Emmanuel Riviere. Some players like Haris Vučkić aren't listed.

Agree with that but Anita is a strange one, don't think I'd be that fussed either way. Wouldn't be too surprised if he did get a new contract as he can play in a few positions but happy with Yedlin and Gamez as our RB options for next season and I don't really rate him as a CM. Would hope we'd be bringing in at least 2 new ones in the summer anyway.
