Decided to post a quick update after what has definitely been my best first season over the last few versions.
Couldn't ask for more, spent the majority of the season in the top 4 and finished just a few points off lifting the title which is something I've never managed first season with Newcastle.
Not much activity on the transfer front. Brought in Nicolas Nkoulou during the summer but the jury's definitely still out on him to be honest. His form's been really hit and miss and Steven Taylor has been much more consistent over the season.
Signed Georginio Wijnaldum in the January window as a replacement for Moussa Sissoko after Man Utd's £33.5M bid which will rise to around £40M with clauses. Normally avoid selling my better players but that offer was just too good to turn down.
High point of the season had to be smashing Chelsea 8-0 in the FA Cup 5th Round.
Unfortunately we didn't mange to get our hands on the trophy in the end losing 7-4 to Liverpool in the final in what was a surprisingly one sided match given the scoreline.
Main aim for next season has got to be re-investing that Sissoko money to improve the defence and tighten things up at the back. Conceded far to much over the course of the season with a lot of the goals coming in the closing minutes of games.
