Players InDamian Duff (Chelsea – £5,000,000)

Players OutMichael Chopra (Cardiff City – £500,000), Lee Bowyer (West Ham United – Totally free), Robbie Elliott (Sunderland – Totally free), Daryl Smylie (Livingston – No cost), Allen Picken (Walsall – Free), Tony Caig (Launched), Martin Brittain (Released) Alan Shearer (Retired)

Newcastle United enjoyed a new lease of life subsequent the caretaker appointment of Glenn Roeder as manager in February which led to the former West Ham United boss currently being offered the role full time in Might.

Below Graeme Souness, the Magpies struggled, but the side’s transformation with Roeder at the helm was outstanding. He liked an unbeaten run in his initial 6 matches in cost and the last 7 games of the season also went without defeat, culminating in a 1- defeat of champions Chelsea on the final day of the period.

Although Roeder has allowed many squad players to depart, which includes Lee Bowyer, Robbie Elliott and Michael Chopra, he pulled off some thing of a coup in luring Chelsea winger Damien Duff to St. James’ Park for a knockdown £5 million.

Duff was thought to have turned down equally Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool in favour of a move to Newcastle and signed a 5 yr offer. Duff joined Chelsea from Blackburn Rovers three many years back for £17 million and made 125 appearances, scoring 19 goals. The Republic of Ireland global won two Premiership title medals for the duration of that time.

Significantly will be anticipated of the Magpies this season but they will begin with a shortage of strikers. Veteran Alan Shearer retired, Michael Owen is a prolonged term casualty following an injuries picked up for the duration of the Entire world Cup whilst Michael Chopra joined Cardiff Metropolis in the summer season. Goal scoring duties will be left to Spaniard Alberto Luque, who ultimately broke his objective scoring duck in opposition to Sunderland in April and Shola Ameobi, who observed the net four instances in his previous six appearances previous time.

VerdictThe Magpies will be aiming for European qualification this time but they want one more established target scorer to fill the void left by Shearer and the injured Owen. If they qualify for UEFA Cup their thin squad could be stretched too significantly to make the influence in the Premier League they have been capable of previous time.
