The push for promotion is reaching the halfway point, and with the African cup of nations approaching it is essential NUFC cover players who are leaving.
Rafa Benitez has shown a magic touch in the transfer market so far, signing players who will make an impact in the Championship and Premiership should we get promoted. The problem with the January transfer market is price, and will Mike Ashley rubber stamp any deal if the money is greater than expected.
Rumours have linked several players with a move, some more believable than others, but each one has shown the ability we have as a club to attract players able to do a job in the Premier League. The magic of NUFC is too hard for players to turn down, if you’re playing for any team in the bottom 5 of the Premiership I would be very tempted to join NUFC knowing what a platform it gives you. Could you imagine anyone at Sunderland turning down the chance to sign for us?
Whatever happens we have to get behind the team, we are odds on to get promoted and with a strong backing it is important for the club to back the manager.
