Newcastle United are well into the November international break now and there’s not really much news of note to discuss, which is always the case as everyone focuses on England and most outlets recycle the transfer speculation from the last window.

An interview earlier in the week from summer arrival Ki Sung-yeung has sparked a fair bit of chatter on social media though and having impressed a fair few in his recent performances, there are a number of fans who now feel he’s done enough to command a starting spot.

The bone of contention is who he replaces as plenty feel it’s time for Jonjo Shelvey to have an extended break to recharge his batteries – lots disagree though.

The 29-year-old arrived at the club over the summer as a free agent following the expiry of his contract at relegated Swansea City, and injury hasn’t helped his start to life at St James’ Park but it’s understandable as to why many fans are hoping he can now step up further given his efforts as his return to involvement has coincided with our turn in form.

It’s a debate that will undoubtedly continue until manager Rafa Benitez makes his next selection.
