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.
