Forward Planning

Newcastle need five new players "better than what they already have" to challenge for a UEFA Cup spot (which as some of you might recall used to be the minimum requirement) next year, thinks Bobby Robson.

I'm not so sure. Improving on the current bunch of wasters should be easy enough, but it'll take a whole new team (minus Beye, Milner, the goalkeepers and possibly Martins) before we get anywhere near mid-table again, never mind the top six.

Hold on tight. This could be a bumpy ride.

Well, I can think of a few players I'd like to see playing for us.

Jimmy Bullard would be nice; A decent left winger who gave a toss about the team would be good as well.

Better make that a decent left winger who gives a toss about the team and isn't on sixty grand a week...

And a defender who can, like, defend.

the best defense is a good offense...

ok, so, yeah a defender would be be in order.

the ale is still broon at least, (let's keep this in perspective.)
