Newcastle United fans have called for owner Mike Ashley to dip into his pocket and bring in some new faces this month.
The businessman is in the process of agreeing a potential takeover, but with just over two weeks left in the transfer window, time is running out.
Rafael Benitez’s team have avoided defeat in their last three games, picking up five points from a possible nine, but the fans are not wholly satisfied with the team.
Prior to Saturday’s Premier League match against Swansea City at St James’ Park, joint-top scorers Dwight Gayle and Joselu had only netted three goals each.
The latter managed to increase his tally by one against Swansea with an equaliser that cancelled out Jordan Ayew’s opener.
The team ended up coming away with a point, but a large majority of the fans think that money needs to be spent on bringing in reinforcements for the second half of the season.
A premier league quality striker and we win that game, no question

If Ashley needed another warning shot about our squad lacking quality, this is it. #nufc

Anyone fancy buying us a striker? Maybe we could set up a just giving page or get the charity buckets out at home games.

The team needs a descent striker. Too many missed chances.

Go and get sturridge or someone of that quality! The money made by staying in the league will outweigh the cost.
