I follow Serie A even more than the Premiership and I think this would be horrible for Newcastle. Santon is brilliant and I think he'll be Italy's first-choice LB in a few years time if Chiellini is moved to the center. So good at going forward but also great defensively. Last season he was one of the unsung heroes of the squad and I praise Pardew for using a 21-year-old for much of the season. I feel bad for Shane Ferguson because he too has looked great coming off the bench.
Bojan, on the other hand, struggled to get any playing time at Roma, even with the same manager he had at Barcelona B. He just disappears in games and would not be a good fit for the English game at all. Another striker is needed, possibly one that could play out wide, but Bojan is not the answer.
Never thought I'd say this about NUFC, but the club's in a precarious position of having a lot of good, young players. Couple that with one of the best scouts in the business and we have some exciting times ahead of us.
I'd heard good things about Bojan, but haven't seen him play much so I really do hope it's just a rumour after reading that. I agree about Santon on the most part though, he was excellent last season although at times he wasn't the best defensively imo but going forward he's fantastic, and he'll just keep getting better and better too which is the best part.
Anyone else got a season ticket btw? I'm hoping mine arrives soon, can't wait for Tottenham first game
