On the 1st anniversary of their club’s takeover, Newcastle United delivered a performance that shows exactly how far they’ve come.
A tie against Brentford has proved to be a tricky contest for many, but the Magpies made it look like child’s play.
Under Eddie Howe, the side has shown immense progression, which fans already got a glimpse of during their 3-3 draw against Champions Manchester City.
And against Brentford, Newcastle proved that they can be imperious when required, and eased past the Bees in a 5-1 thrashing.
A far cry from the last time these two sides met at St James’ Park, the Magpies simply looked a class above the visitors.
And once again, pulling the strings was Newcastle talisman, Bruno Guimaraes.
The Brazilian has been a fan-favourite ever since stepping foot in Tyneside, and he was at his brilliant best against Brentford.
Arguably the best signing under the owners, the 24-year-old grabbed a brace and ran the show with ease.
Performances such as these prove that transfer links to Real Madrid are no hoax, Guimaraes is really that good.
Nevertheless, he’s not the only newcomer to have won over the Toon, as the recently recruited Sven Botman is also earning plenty of adoration from fans.
Both players now feature together in a brand new chant, alongside club record signing Alexander Isak, who’s had a promising start in England.
The chant itself is yet another iteration of the age-old ‘Win the Premier League’ chant, with different lyrics of course.
In this version, the gaffer has been excluded, and Bruno kicks off the chant.
We then get mentions of Botman and Alexander, before an impassioned ‘Newcastle gonna win the Premier League!’
The lyrics are-
‘We’ve got Bruno in the middle,
He knows exactly what we need
Botman at the back
Isak in attack
Newcastle gonna win the Premier League!’
The Magpies go up against Manchester United next, and a win at Old Trafford would certainly embolden their European aspiration.
And should that happen, don’t be surprised if you hear the chant drown out the home crowd.
