Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew insists they're happy with their summer market campaign.
Pardew knows Toon fans are concerned with the lack of signings.
He told the Sunday Sun: â€œYou could argue that we should have gone out and spent (more) money on players, but then if it didnâ€™t work out that would have been a bigger criticism. We spent the money wisely and I think our fans should be thankful for that.
â€œGraham Carr did a tremendous job in targeting players and we have done our best to develop the ones we already have, and we think there are one or two at the club that the fans havenâ€™t seen yet.
â€œThey havenâ€™t seen Sammy Ameobi this season or much of Romain Amalfitano. Cheick Tiote has hardly played.
â€œSo I think we should be thankful for what weâ€™ve got. We have a competitive squad.
â€œI have no problem with these radio debate shows, I really donâ€™t.
â€œI do think they tend to lean on the negative rather than the positive.
â€œYou have to look at the bigger picture.
â€œWe had a fantastic season last year and this time weâ€™ve had two European games and two international breaks; the season hasnâ€™t really got going."
