Newcastle and their fans have endured a tumultuous time in the past year. A poor season coupled with the arrival of Joe Kinnear has sparked dissatisfaction among many, and to further this there have been difficulties in signing players thus far in the transfer window.
It has been obvious to all that the many rumours that have spread and approaches made that they are clearly targeting a striker to add into the squad, but it has not materialised as of yet.
After just clinging onto Premier League survival last season there is certainly pressure on those making decisions at the club to act decisively and sort out any problems as well as bring in some new faces to the club. Having sorted out the Papiss Cisse conundrum, there is only the problem of making new signings left.
