Joe Kinnear knows exactly where his Newcastle squad are at the moment: they’re stuck in the relegation zone looking for spark. With the January transfer window creeping up, Kinnear made it clear that all he needs to beat the drop are four new transfers in the new year. That’s it?

Newcastle have been awful this season while having to deal with problems problems on and off the pitch. Kinnear’s plea sounds exactly like the same one former manager Kevin Keegan made before the season. Keegan said he needed five new players to work his magic, but in the end he got kicked to the curb having never had the chance to go after any of his transfer targets. Could Kinnear find himself in the same predicament? Chances are looking pretty good at the moment.
Would four targets solve the problem? Who would you go after if you were Kinnear?
