Alan Pardew has worked hard over the summer to bring added creativity and firepower to St James’ Park.

Among the new arrivals is Emmanuel Riviere, who has been snapped up from French giants Monaco.

He marked his debut with a goal in a 4-0 friendly win over Sydney FC on Tuesday, with Newcastle's frontmen catching the eye and offering the promise of more to come in Premier League competition.

Long-serving defender Taylor said ahead of the new campaign: "We have the pace up front to cause teams problems.

"Even at this stage of pre-season, our fitness is showing through and we looked sharp up front. There's a great work ethic in the team.

"In pre-season training, everybody's working hard, gearing up for the Manchester City game.

"We know it's important to put in a performance in every match in the build-up."

Manager Pardew added: "It was nice to see the new boys all contribute in a really positive way.

"It's obvious we have more offensive options now with the arrival of Riviere, Siem (de Jong) and Ayoze (Perez)."

wo things. First, I can't stop reading your name as 'Dane Bowers'. Second, you used the words 'philosophy' and 'Redknapp' in the same sentence.
