Good signing for #NUFC is Georginio Wijnaldum. At least Shhhteve McClaren will have someone to speak dutch to now— Simon Leigh © (@Clarkie615) July 11, 2015
Georginio Wijnaldum. Used to sign him in every FM game I played a few years back. Thus fully qualified to say he's a good pickup for #NUFC.— Vince (@vincetalksfooty) July 11, 2015
If Newcastle manage to get Wijnaldum from PSV, that is a mega buy! He's good! #NUFC— Kashvinder Mann (@KashMann27) July 11, 2015
I keep pronouncing Wijnaldum correctly then forgetting 5 minutes later. We'll call him George. Georgie when he does something good. #nufc— tom (@toonlowdown) July 11, 2015
