Maybe they should stop worry about us? Would be funny as fuck if this happened.

 

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is on the list of Newcastle United’s potential targets under their new Saudi Arabian ownership.

 

The Everton striker, 24, is being monitored by several Premier League clubs, including Newcastle, whose new wealth from the Public Investment Fund (PIF) will make them major players in future windows.

 

Calvert-Lewin is highly regarded by the current recruitment team at Newcastle and would be expected to remain a player of interest even with a potential change of technical staff behind the scenes as PIF start their new era at the club.

 

Callum Wilson is the current No 9 but Newcastle will be in the market to support their top scorer this season with attacking reinforcements.

They may face competition for Calvert-Lewin, though, as the Everton striker has been on the radar of many Premier League clubs since making progress under Carlo Ancelotti, earning him a place in the England squad at the European Championship.

 

Arsenal are known to be keen on the former Sheffield United man. Manchester City and Manchester United are also long-term admirers, while there is interest from one major Bundesliga club.

 

His goalscoring record last season was 25 for club and country, with only one was from the penalty spot. He also led the way for goals inside the penalty area. His one-touch finishing was encouraged by Ancelotti, while under Rafa Benitez this season he scored in each of this three games before being hit by toe and thigh injuries.

 

Next summer is expected to be a busy market for strikers with Erling Haaland’s buyout clause activated and the question of Harry Kane's future. And it looks like Calvert-Lewin will be highly sought after too.

Why does Calvert-Lewin fit the bill at Newcastle?

Newcastle may have become one of the wealthiest clubs in the world but they are unlikely to sign the likes of Kylian Mbappe straight away. They are widely reported to want to work within a budget and a player like Calvert-Lewin, while expensive, would be a sensible investment.

At 24, he is yet to peak but has also proven himself as a Premier League goalscorer in the last two seasons. Newcastle fans love a No 9 who can impose himself on defences and there are signs Calvert-Lewin could fill that role.

What is his current fitness status?

He played with a broken toe at the start of the season which limited his training and required injections for matches. His recent thigh injury ruled him out of England duty for the last two international breaks and is likely to see him miss November’s matches. He will get assessed further this week over fears it could be six weeks out.

Will other big clubs move for him?

He has another three seasons left on his Goodison Park contract but an out-and-out No 9 is a rare commodity. Manchester City have yet to find a replacement for Sergio Aguero, while Manchester United will eventually need long-term solutions after signing Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani in the last two summers.

Even that headline "will other big clubs move for him?" will make them fume and trot out their Everton firsts list.

Think it was someone in the place playing it. It's got to be the shittest club anthem along with that crap theme that Newcastle come out to.

The latter is Local Hero by Mark Knopfler, or as I prefer to remember it, that shit music from that shit Maxwell House advert that Newcastle run out to. I think it probably out-shits Z-Cars, but it’s close, because the theme from Magic Roundabout would be more inspirational than that dreck.

It was a joke because every blue has it as their ring tone and not one blue I know has a silent option on their phone!

Injuries are part of the game. Wonder if they'll whinge about it after laughing at our injuries last season? (2 of which they caused).

 

Have they blamed Van Dijk yet?

It is a shitty Watford-reject tune, adapted from "Johnny Todd" by Anfield Season Ticket Holder Fritz Spiegel.

When will they ever realise that every time and it is every time they take the piss over things like Injuries (see last season) or get giddy when they are on a roll and are going to get into the top four or win the league after 3 games it comes back to bite them viciously on the arse

I remember getting ourselves arranged somewhere near childwall five ways for the parade after number 6, and cars were still going up and down the road, and one came up playing z-cars and waving at us all. He was having a laugh and people were laughing back at him and it was absolutely fine. No one was arsed cause we were celebrating. It was sound.

Was waiting for Salah to score around 40 odd this season but they've had to mention Dixie Dean as early as October.

 

and i my memory serves Mo has not harmed a single goalkeeper in the scoring of those goals

I genuinely don't mind Local Hero.
