Four More Young Guns On Trial At Newcastle


We may not be getting as many first teamers into Newcastle during the January transfer window, as much as we’d like, but we are definitely getting some star youngsters in as we hear another youngsters, this time 18 year old Hungarian midfield starlet Andras Gosztonyi is on his way to Tyneside from his club MTK Budapest for a week’s trial.

Andras Gosztonyi – 18 year old Hungarian midfielder

 

Of course another Hungarian, then 17 year-old Tamas Kadar joined us a year ago and was near to making his first team debut last Wednesday, and has been on the subs bench for the last few games.

Andras started out as a striker but has played in midfield when he’s represented the Hungarian Under-19 side, and the youngster is set to spend a week on trial at St James’ Park.

Joe Kinnear will also be looking at even more youngsters next Tuesday in the trial game to take place behind closed doors.

Joe has told the Sunday Sun today that he will run the rule over three more Scandinavian trialists alongside Peter Lovenkrands in the friendly match on Tuesday.

The trio of Norway and Sweden Under-21 internationals — recommended to Kinnear by veteran Norwegian agent Rune Hauge — are ones for the future, rather than players to be pitched into Newcastle’s relegation battle.

Joe told the Sunday Sun today:

“Three youngsters will play,” “All three of them are Under-21 internationals. Two play for Norway and one for Sweden.”

“One is a centre-back, one is a left-back and the other is a midfielder.”

“We will take a look at them. But I am not thinking about them for the first team.”

Peter Lovernkrands, the two potential loan signings, whoever they are, and the three Scandanavian youngsters will all play in the trial game on Tuesday, and we hope to hear some news from Joe after that.

Comments welcome.

    So 3 Scandinavians, 1 Hungarian, Lovenkrands and potentially 2 loan signings in the one trial game? Should be good! 😀

    GREAT NEWS…But does Ashley not realise this is not going to pull us out of a relegation scrap. How the hell Ashley made all his money is beyond me because it seems to me he is totally incapable of running a football club.

    We need seniors, get the youth in at the same time besides spending too much time on youth signings

    Another worry of mine is has Ashley have ulterior motives with bringing all these kids in hoping he has a potential Rooney,Ronaldo only to sell them on at a profit in a few years time. What i wouldn’t mid is if we had these kids until they are at least 28-29 at then sell them on at a profit to release funds for more up and coming youngsters. What i think is come 22-23 when maybe they have star status then Ashley will be rubbing his hand together with his greedy eyes on a nice fat profit…god, i hope not.

    All these foreign names coming to our club when all the scouts need to do is jump on the Metro to Wallsend and watch some of these kids in the Sunday leagues. There are some quality youngins that could do a better job than Guthrie and Butt put together.

    He knows that he has made made mistakes and needs to correct them. Besides he has so many advisors with him, whether he takes any heed of them or not is a nother thing…

    Toon1978… I really think MA wants us to be a top club and keep those youngsters. Not for some noble reason, but because he can then sell the club for a HUGE profit. Whether he has the vision to do is of another question tho, so far he hasnt invested enough in the first team to make a good foundation for the youngsters, and sticking with JFK is a chance he takes IMO. There are better managers out there for NUFC i would say, but they will also have to agree to his director of football and that might be the reason he sticks with JFK.

    Very very good news, i’m glad how much we’re concentrating on youth.

    However, that being said, we do need atleast 3 quality players to save our season.

    We are crying out for a two full backs left and right and we are also screaming for two GOOD midfielders creative and defensive. If we get one full back (left) not on loan and a defensive midfielder (not on loan)and the two loans a full back (Right) and a creative midfielder (loan)with an option to buy at the end of the season i will be happy with that.

    I agree with an earlier post by too1978..

    Its great we are buying all of this young talent from overseas. But surely we should look closer to home! How many terrific local lads have slipped through our fingers in the past? Look at Boro all of their players coming through most are local lads and even one is a Geordie. Cheeky sods.

    On the transfer front. What sort of choice is that for a club and a manager? We have no players at the moment. The choice is M’bia for £10m, but you can’t have the loan players. How about getting M’Bia and the loan signings. Bloody hell!

    We will probably end up with nowt!

    If JK has to cancel his loan signings to bring in MBIA then ASHLEY wants shot to sh1t, that is a disgrace. If that is the case than we all should know the ambition of Ashley for the club. If could quite happily kick this bloke is the nuts full force.

    toon 1978-agreed. If Kinnear needs to cancel two deals worth what, a million or so? to bring in a player for 10, because his limit is 10 million, then there’s something wrong.

    It’s like a kid in a sweet shop asking for a lolly or something and his ma being like “no i’ve told you, one lolly a week”.

    “please mike, its only another million and it would help.” “now no joseph, what have i said? 10 million, and 10 million only.”

    I see Bellamy has been left out for West Ham. Time we play City we will be lining up against Kaka, Bellamy, De Jong and Palaicos. Great. They are buying a new team, while have to weigh up between 2 loan signings or 1 pernament player.

    Partizan…

    if we were willing to splash the cash that could be our team come 7 days time. Except Beye and possibly Martins who are injured. Give £10m to Rennes for M’Bia or do some player+cash deal with them (N’Zogbia). Bullard obviously wants to leave, he considered Bolton. Give him a shot. That would be £6-7m.

    Will it happen? No!

    I cant believe i am reading these comments from Kinnear. Keegan did want to strengthen the squad but was not allowed.

    “I’ve inherited this,” he said in the Sunday Mirror. “They are not my players, everybody has forgotten that.

    “But our biggest problem is a lack of strength in depth. Why wasn’t it addressed by the last manager Keegan or the manager before him Allardyce?
