Newcastle United squad 2021/22: Full team for new Premier League season

There's a sense that Newcastle's strong finish to last season rather papered over the cracks.

Things had looked bleak for the Magpies, but five wins from the final eight games - as many as they'd managed in their previous 24 - ensured they finished well clear of the relegation zone in 12th.

But the pressure remains on Steve Bruce, whose style of football hasn't endeared him to the Toon Army in his two years in charge at St. James' Park.

If Newcastle begin the new campaign poorly, expect fans to be straight on Bruce's back - and that of deeply unpopular owner Mike Ashley (although they already will be).

Once again, transfer funds were tight at Newcastle, and they're the only Premier League club yet to make a signing in this window.

There may not have been any hugely notable departures - Andy Carroll headlines a handful of fringe players who have moved on - but as the sides around them strengthen, there's bound to be a growing sense of concern.

As things stand, it could take a particularly blistering start to the season to lift the fog on the Tyne.
