the ones issues that don’t make any sense at Newcastle United?
Sure, I do know there are slightly numerous them, however here’s a new one that may be added proper close to the highest of the checklist.
On Monday morning it’s been printed that Dwight Gayle has been introduced a brand new 3 12 months contract via Mike Ashley and the striker / bench hotter has signed it.
What sort of loopy stuff is that this?
If the rest screams ‘CHAMPIONSHIP’ then that is it.
It’s The Athletic who’ve damaged the tale, pronouncing that on ‘diminished phrases’ Dwight Gayle has signed off the deal.
Since becoming a member of Newcastle United 5 years in the past, Dwight Gayle has scored 11 targets in 66 Premier League appearances.
In that very same period of time, Dwight Gayle has scored 47 targets in 72 Championship appearances.
That is certainly 100% an acceptance from Mike Ashley that relegation could be very a lot a are living risk.
Callum Wilson didn’t come to play Championship soccer at Newcastle, he turns 30 subsequent birthday (February 2022) and can certainly need to be enjoying PL soccer subsequent season, while I haven’t any doubt that as one in every of NUFC’s most beneficial avid gamers, if NUFC are relegated then Mike Ashley will likely be more than pleased to promote to get price range in and one of the crucial largest earners off the salary invoice.
Who would then ranking the targets within the Championship although…?
Undoubtedly even Ashley wouldn’t give Carroll every other contract…while tough to look Joelinton turning into prolific at any stage.
Bother is although, Dwight Gayle is based so much on tempo, will flip 32 in October and has had greater than his justifiable share of harm issues.
We then have the Steve Bruce issue, he has refused to provide Dwight Gayle any roughly a correct probability those previous two years regardless of the striker scoring 5 targets in simply 12 PL begins and an even few sub appearances. On 45 events Steve Bruce has named Gayle in his Premier League matchday 18 guy squad however 33 of the ones the striker has been at the bench.
This follows on from new offers given prior to now to the likes of Jonjo Shelvey and Matt Ritchie, avid gamers no longer excellent sufficient to be Premier League starters at the present time. Newcastle United beneath Mike Ashley and Steve Bruce, apparently development an growing old ever slower group for the Championship…
David Ornstein writing for The Athletic:
‘Uncertainty swirls round Newcastle United at the present time, with Steve Bruce’s aspect simply two issues above the Premier League’s relegation zone with 9 fits to play.
However striker Dwight Gayle has dedicated his long run to the membership via signing a brand new three-year contract on diminished phrases.
The 31-year-old’s deal was once because of expire on June 30 however he has agreed an extension that can stay him at St James’ Park till the summer season of 2024.’
