QPR didn't sell us Austin for £4m because we were fellow relegation candidates and they're bitter we stayed up. #NUFC— Jordan Robson (@JordanRobson) January 17, 2016
Honestly never thought he was the answer but Charlie Austin for only 4 mil is a bargain. #NUFC those are normally your speciality.— Toon Army Pittsburgh (@ToonArmyPIT) January 17, 2016
Woah! Woah! WOAH! Why have I only just seen that Austin has gone to Saints for £4m?!?! Please tell me we have someone else lined up #NUFC— Craig (@craggy8) January 17, 2016
Should of got Austin instead of bidding more for Lacazette when he has already said no #nufc— Adam Standing (@adamstanding) January 17, 2016
#NUFC better get a good striker after losing out with Charlie Austin. Just because we won today, doesn't mean we don't need one.— Caitlin (@accentpreferred) January 16, 2016
Add a decent striker to this Newcastle side and they're actually not bad. Charlie Austin would have been a dream signing. #NUFC— Alex Batt (@AlexBatt) January 16, 2016
If anyone thinks that we didn't put £4 million up for Austin then you are a mug, Austin obviously choose against us #NUFC— Craig Thompson (@CraigThompson30) January 16, 2016
