“Yep, just raid Ligue 1 again worked so well last time” – A lot of Newcastle United fans are not bothered to hear that their club’s scouts have identified Victor Osimhen as the top target for January.
The reaction amongst many Toon supporters, though, is apathy.
They think that no matter who Newcastle sign, they won’t be able to perform under the current setup.

Pointless task with current management, facilities and coach

Many Toon fans are not bothered by this link to a potentially exciting player.
Yes, because signing players from Ligue 1 worked so well for us in the past

Other Newcastle supporters point out the last few times they have bought players from France – it has not worked.
