Gayle and Colback would give us what we need and lack, some pace upfront and a younger Hutch. I'd take those two plus cash. Aarons and Lazaar as well, would add depth if they can stay fit.

Colback is same age as Hutch.  Both 30 this year.

I don’t get Aarons and Lazaar. Obviously decent players but spent more time in the treatment room than on the pitch. 

 

Totally agree. We got them halfway through the season which suggests they weren't the cream of the crop when it came to sourcing loan players at the stRt of the season. Still think we could do better.

Manquillo?

 

Could fill the left back spot nicely.

 

Shame he's a RB

We were supposed to be bringing young players to bring down the average age, the loan signings were our opportunity to do that, so surely we won’t be bringing in the likes of Colback and Lazaar

Aarons & Lazaar trained fit by TS could be a different proposition this time tho. 

Last season they came in far from match fit & picked up injuries as a result imo!

What's the point of taking loan players to bring down the average age? 

 

If they aren't our players and need to be replaced at the end of the season regardless, surely the closer to their 'prime' the better...

Wouldn't Bruce want Tony Strudwick as well?  He was very much his choice and it wouldn't surprise me if he shot off as well!  Might wait until its all died down a bit.

You make a good point..but we can't go forwards thinking that we're okay in c/m because Hutch is on the books.

Colback would be better than what we have imo..

Because the squad is still too old, and it’s only likely to be loans from now on

Lets hope not, he's done enough damage!

But surely the reason that its good to have players with a good mix of ages is so you don't have to replace them all at once.  Taking young players on loan doesnt do anything to address this.

Yes a lot better but most are!  Been out of favour at Newcastle since Benitez came really.  38 league games on loan at Forest last season.
