Newcastle United top 3 Premier League signings picked by media – 2 odd good 1s
Who are Newcastle United’s biggest signing of the Premier League era?
Obviously, it all comes down to opinion and there is no right or wrong… but who would you choose?
A newspaper picked the top three signings for each Premier League club, a fun joke during this international break.
The Star using him as an example to mention Ronaldo in another story, they rank him between Wayne Rooney in the lead and Eric Cantona in third.
As for Newcastle United, it’s their top three …
1. Alan Shearer
Newcastle signed Shearer a year after winning the Premier League with Blackburn and the Newcastle fan became the Premier League’s top scorer at St James Park. Devastatingly, he was unable to win the silverware with his home club, but was a two-time FA Cup finalist.
2. Shay gave
Given is a great Premier League player and has played for Newcastle goal for 12 seasons, making over 400 appearances for the club. The Irishman was one of the best in the league in his role and served the club immensely in his time.
3. Fabrice Coloccini
Coloccini signed for Newcastle in 2008 but they have been relegated this season. However, he was a key part of the Championship winning team as they returned straight away and were instrumental in Newcastle’s full-back for another six years.
The greatest goalscorer in Premier League history, not just for Newcastle United, is naturally an automatic choice.
The same with Shay Given for me, hands down the best goalkeeper I have ever seen at St James Park and I am confident the greatest in NUFC history.
Colo? It went well in the 2009/10 promotion season, decent when Newcastle United are back in the 2010/11 Premier League campaign, outstanding in the 2011/12 fifth season when they were elected to the Premier League campaign. PFA PL team of the season. However, it is surely a joke for anyone to suggest that he is part of Newcastle United’s top three of the past three decades.
Keegan bringing 32-year-old Peter Beardsley back to Newcastle United in 1993 was an incredible deal and surely impossible to leave him aside, as he was the key to NUFC third place in 1993/94, as well as runners-up in 1995 / 96. , then also played its part in the Year of the Finalists 1996/97.
Other candidates for the best Newcastle United signings who would certainly get ahead of Coloccini, off the top of my head Rob Lee, Laurent Robert, Nobby Solano, David Ginola, Les Ferdinand, Barry Venison and Jonathan Woodgate.
