Today's NUFC Content

Check below for the best content involving NUFC from today.

Newcastle's spending power and FFP

  • A Twitter thread by football finance expert Swiss Ramble looked at what Newcastle can still spend this window
  • Newcastle could spend up to £600m and remain within FFP limits. Though that would never have made sense
  • Newcastle have already used up at least £52m of that money after January. Plus a further £58m this window
  • In theory, Newcastle could spend 200m in this window. Though, that is reduced by losses due to Covid-19, dropping the total to £167m
  • Sadly, Newcastle have also lost out on the 18/19 season profit due to 3 years having passed. Realistically leaving around £43m left
  • Newcastle owner's admire Man City's approach. So we can expect a huge increase in revenue in the next 5 years
  • Champions League adds around £70–£105m, however, this isn't worth compromising in the short term
  • Everton a good example of why spending doesn't always equal success

NUFC's Centre Back Dilemma

  • The Athletic (Paywall) look at the current crop of NUFC centre-backs
  • Schar's wonder strike caught the headlines
  • Burn actually had more impact in a defensive role
  • Newcastle's line was higher than last season's average

  • Botman likely to slowly be integrated to the league
  • Cup competitions could see his first start
