Newcastle Line-Up Raid for Cairney
The harsh realities of football mean that, come next season, Newcastle United will be playing in the Premier League whilst Fulham won`t.
Or to put it another way, one team that wears a black-and-white kit will be mixing it in the top-flight whilst another (us) will have to be content with another season in the second-tier of English football.
But, what is more worrying is that the other team in black-and-white I`ve talked about, could be looking towards us to strengthen their squad.
Although Slavisa Jokanovic has remarked about the club keeping their best players, it`s not always as simple as that.
Therefore I`m not in the least bit surprised to read in the Telegraph, Newcastle are set to enquire about the availability of Tom Cairney.
After getting promoted it appears Rafael Benitez has been given a £100 million transfer chest to ensure Newcastle flourish in the top-flight, don`t be too surprised if some of that cash is offered to Fulham for the services of the silky midfielder.
