Wednesday’s Toon Talk: Atsu likes Rafa and So Do We

Today’s open discussion thread detailing a daily dose of Newcastle United news This is a daily discussion thread. Comment below on the topics and lets get the party started! Atsu scored the opening goal of the season and has performed well so far this Premier League campaign. I think everyone would agree that he was an absolute bargain for us. His pace on the wing and ability to get behind defenders and score goals could be vital this season. This is what Atsu contributes his early success too. Spoiler Alert!!! It’s Rafa. (GOAL) Oh No!

The Solution to the Number 10 Problem — Jonjo Shelvey

The Solution to the Number 10 Problem — Jonjo Shelvey

After failing to sign a new attacking-midfielder in the summer transfer window, fans have been left bemoaning the lack of options in that position. Let me take you back a little bit. Saturday, August 27th 2016. Newcastle took to the field against promotion contenders Brighton and Hove Albion. A massive day in the Championship season, where the home side asserted their dominance early on. They blew Brighton away on that day.
