As the 2021/22 season draws to a close, Newcastle United will start to think about their summer transfer plans.
Those plans will have been in limbo for a while, with our Premier League status still up in the air. But with safety guaranteed, the Toon owners can now move into the next phase of their ambitious project.
It’s going to be a very exciting summer at St James’ Park. There will be plenty of incomings, but also plenty of outgoings. Some fan favourites will probably have to leave the club.
Eddie Howe’s side ended their home games in style on Monday night, beating Champions League chasing Arsenal 2-0.
The scenes inside St James’ Park were incredibly special, and will have meant a lot to those players who could depart. However, it could also inspire players to move to the North East.
Top players may seriously think about joining Newcastle after witnessing what happened on Monday
In January, it was unclear what type of player we’d be able to attract. Then Kieran Trippier arrived and suddenly proved we had immense pulling power.
That point was further solidified when Bruno Guimaraes swapped Lyon for Newcastle. A Brazil international decided to join the club in a World Cup year, despite the Magpies still being threated by relegation.
Howe’s team have gone from strength to strength in 2022, and are only going to get better. The club is growing, and the fanbase is believing.
The noise inside St James’ Park on Monday night was out of this world. It’s the best it’s sounded in a long time. From start to finish it was rocking.
The atmosphere continued after the full time whistle, as the players completed a lap of honour. Howe’s squad were lauded for the work they’ve put in, with Toon fans sounding their appreciation.
It came after an electric performance from Newcastle that saw them absolutely dominate Arsenal. It was our best performance of the season, and our first win over one of the ‘big six’.
Monday was a night that could inspire players to join the club. Why wouldn’t you want to be a part of that? How could you not want to play in that atmosphere?
This is a club that is going places, and it’s a special place to play football. Big players like Trippier and Bruno have took the plunge and excelled, while Howe is improving the players he inherited.
St James’ Park was magical on Monday, and it will continue to be just that.
