Tarkowski, Trippier seem Howe type signings initially

Re Trippier, If AM are out of contention and Man Utd dont come sniffing, I could see him seeing a final payday at Newcastle.

Hazard, Coutinho, Lingard would be bad even as loan signings. These types can be toxic ina. dressing room when their careers are winding down and are the last thing the likes of Eddie need

Lingard in particular knows his contract at end of season is up so would hardly be risking injury with a final big payday around the corner if he did come on loan.

Wouldn't be a fan of Ter Stegen but a quality GK would be a great investment.

A left field signing would be someone like Steve Cook

No Premiership clubs will sell/loan any player to Newcastle during the January window, they have well and truly spat their dummies out, with influence from the bent bods at the PL of course.

Would be a decent signing potentially. Unreal Utd paying their backup keeper 100k a week
Report Racingqueen November 10, 2021 4:37 PM GMT
Tiger Tiger is spot on. I don't see them spending big at this point. Investment to majorly upgrade the training facility (even complete rebuild) and restructure football back office is a priority over wasting money on the Likes of Coutinho, Hazard, mercenary 3.

Being an investment fund, I don't see PSG like spending at any point.

Harry doesn't have time on his side. It'll take at least three or four years for this project to show glimpses of success. He'll be a total crock by that stage.

Its unclear what division we will be playing in next season, probably the Championship. Come January we will have a better insight. It will be difficult to sign any quality players with the threat of relegation hanging over us, could be that we have to see this season out with the current squad plus three average additions in January to help keep us up. Then the fun begins, still in the PL - we need a clear out - if in the Championship then keep the squad together to bring us back up. Its a difficult situation to which there is no easy remedy.

no top players going to sign without a ridiculous premium or a far more difficult than usual release clause (as they'll be almost certainly be over payed to join)

best bet is a number of middling signings on inflated but short term contracts to keep them up and absorb that burden for the value of staying in the PL with a view to an offseason rebuild.

you don't get release clauses typically that mean you have to sub their wages back in a top league though..and if they have that in place motivation must start to be a factor too..
