Newcastle name 25 man Squad.


Newcastle United has finally confirmed the 25-man squad for the first half of the 2022/23 Premier League season via its website.

Premier League clubs are mandatorily required to submit their squad lists, with summer signings Alexander Isak, Sven Botman, Nick Pope and Matt Targett all included for the Magpies, as is recent arrival Loris Karius, who signed a short-term deal with the Magpies last week.

Defender Emil Krafth, who suffered an anterior cruciate ligament knee injury in the Carabao Cup win over Tranmere Rovers, misses out on a place, while Jonjo Shelvey and Karl Darlow – who are both expected to return to action before the Sweden international – is named.

Is this 25 man squad good enough?

Yes- We can achieve progress with this squad

No- We will need another transfer window to get into Europe

The good news is they only need to list contracted players over the age of 21, meaning younger players like 19-year-old Elliot Anderson – who has impressed  Eddie Howe so far in the campaign- are still eligible to feature but do not need to be included on the list.

Newcastle United’s 25-man squad for the first half of the season is as follows:

2 Kieran Trippier
3 Paul Dummett
4 Sven Botman
5 Fabian Schär
6 Jamaal Lascelles
7 Joelinton
8 Jonjo Shelvey
9 Callum Wilson
10 Allan Saint-Maximin
11 Matt Ritchie
12 Jamal Lewis
13 Matt Targett
14 Alexander Isak
18 Loris Karius
19 Javier Manquillo
20 Chris Wood
21 Ryan Fraser
22 Nick Pope
23 Jacob Murphy
24 Miguel Almirón
26 Karl Darlow
28 Joe Willock
33 Dan Burn
36 Sean Longstaff
39 Bruno Guimarães

The question on most fans’ lips is will this squad be enough, for now, to keep us in with a shout for a European place or will we likely be investing again in January?

Up Next….. Newcastle to sign Australian Wonder kid.
