Football: 'Toon need to buy flair players'.

CHRIS WADDLE believes under-fire Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce can buy himself some valuable time by buying a couple of flair players in the January transfer window.

Disgruntled Newcastle fans voiced their frustration after the home draw with bottom club Derby and the Boxing Day defeat away to strugglers Wigan.

But former Newcastle and England winger Waddle thinks Allardyce has an opportunity to take the heat off himself by bringing in a couple of entertainers during the transfer window to excite the Geordie faithful.

"The fans are frustrated because they like their entertaining football and the football now is not entertaining," said Waddle.

"When Kevin Keegan came back to the club he brought a lot of entertaining football and the fans thoroughly enjoyed what they were seeing.

"Now the football is not entertaining. They have not got creative players. On the whole they have not got players who entertain the crowd and the football is very direct at times."
