Burnley are in a relegation battle with Newcastle . Not sure why they’ve sanctioned this, unless they’ve got someone lined up 

 

Newcastle triggered the release clause in his contract according to BBC sport.

Could be a shrewd bit of business..It's not a hell of a lot of money for a proven premier goal scorer.  

 

Not as if they have to negotiate the cost.


Thread will be worth re-visiting in May.

I think it’s a good signing for an okay price

Newcastle have a problem because although Callum Wilson is a very good player - he's rarely available

 

I suppose Wood gives them another string to their bow with his style

 

 

Do Newcastle have the players to create chances for him?

 

He's been off the boil lately as Burnley have gone into freefall, not because he's lost any form. He's only getting half chances set up for him

 

He's not going to win matches by himself; he needs an effective support team and there's not been much evidence that Newcastle have that right now

25m to take your main relegation rivals main man. Cornet is on international duty too.

 

Worth the fee just for the impact it has on Burnley.

Theres potential that the combo of Trippier and Wood will keep them up.

 

That said, I dunno why they didn’t spend the money on Ben Brereton 

 

Would have made more sense if they'd have signed Saido Berahino.

It's a fascinating game.

 

Premier League fixtures this weekend pit all the positional rivals against each other.

 

Man City vs. Chelsea.

Tottenham vs. Arsenal

Newcastle vs. Watford

Norwich vs. Everton

Aston Villa vs. Man Utd

 

Huge games for either end of the table.

 

Says something when the premier league is more unmissable than watching your own club.

Very good signing for Newcastle. Scored around one in three for Burnley who don't create a tonne of chances.

 

Should be able to partner Wilson as well if he ever stays fit for a prolonged period.

Burnley v Watford in midweek is a big game too.
