Steve McClaren hoping to breathe life into Newcastle this season

ESPN FC's Craig Burley reckons Newcastle boss Steve McClaren will be a mixture of hit and miss on Tyneside.

Newcastle endured an appalling season last time out, and new boss Steve McClaren is tasked with turning the club's fortunes around. Here's a look at what to expect from McClaren's men as we approach the new campaign.

Arsenal beat Wolfsburg, win Emirates Cup; Wijnaldum scores for Newcastle

Romelu Lukaku scored a hat trick as Everton overcame an early deficit on their way to a 3-1 win over Hearts.
Theo Walcott and Jeff Reine-Adelaide celebrate after scoring in their 1-0 win over Wolfsburg.

Theo Walcott scored the only goal as Arsenal beat Wolfsburg 1-0 to win the Emirates Cup for the first time in five years -- with Petr Cech keeping a clean sheet on his first appearance at his new home.

England international Walcott has reportedly agreed a new contract with the Gunners and the 26-year-old hit the winner in a low-key 1-0 victory despite lacking a cutting edge in the first half.

Having hammered Lyon 6-0 24 hours earlier, Arsenal were favourites to win their own friendly competition.


Newcastle set to sign Chancel Mbemba once visa is processed

Chancel Mbemba is an international for DR Congo.

Newcastle United are set to complete a move for Anderlecht defender Chancel Mbemba after the player agreed personal terms.

Mbemba, 20, will join former teammate Aleksandar Mitrovic, who arrived at St James' Park last week, and Netherlands international Georginio Wijnaldum, once his documentation has been processed.

The defender, who could cost the club as much as £9 million, developed in the Belgian league at E.S La Grace, Mputu and MK Etancheite before joining Anderlecht in 2012.

Newcastle positive as McClaren brings new signings and new ideas

ESPNFC's Craig Burley tells Alexis Nunes he doesn't know what to expect from new Newcastle boss Steve McClaren due to his patchy managerial record.
Georginio Wijnaldum could be a big hit at Newcastle.

It's been a while since the words "optimism" and "Newcastle United" have been used in the same sentence on these pages.

Don't forget, only a month ago on Tyneside, many fans were still enduring a hangover from the close shave of avoiding relegation to the Championship. However, just a few weeks on from the frustrations that saw the club slow to flex their muscle in the transfer market this summer, Newcastle fans are feeling happier with the additions of Aleksandar Mitrovic and Georginio Wijnaldum...
