Lascelles Names Player Who Will Take Us Up!

Last updated : 25 November 2016 By Footy Mad - Editor

Dwight Gayle can fire Newcastle United into the Premier League – if he keeps his focus.

That’s the verdict of captain Jamaal Lascelles ahead of tomorrow’s home game against Blackburn Rovers.

“He’s doing really well,” said Lascelles. “He’s very clinical with his shots. It’s my job, and that of a few of the other lads, to keep him doing that.

“Ultimately, if he’s banging in goals for us, then we’re going to have a really good chance. I don’t want to get into his head too much, but he’s a good player, and needs to keep doing what he’s doing.

“He works really hard. If he stays focused, we should be fine.”

The Toon's Greatest 100 Players. . .Ever! - £10.99

Available from Amazon and Kindle:

Or contact: for a signed copy.

This book is a collection of the 100 Greatest Newcastle United players of all time, as voted for by readers and a panel of journalists who contribute to the website.

The players are in an order of five-per-chapter, counting down from 100 to Newcastle United's greatest ever player (as viewed by the author), but the whole point of the book is for You (the reader) to decide who goes where.

The list is not, by any means, definitive. As with all books of this nature, whether it be "Greatest Albums"; "Best Movies Of All Time"; or "Top 100 Pin-Ups Of The Year" . . . no two people have exactly the same opinion.

There will be controversy over who is on the list, and chances are, more controversy over who is not.

Here are the best of the best. I have painted the picture with each player's profile. Where they end up in the league of Nufc's Greatest is up to you.

Because You have the final word.
