Kazenga LuaLua Just Waiting For His Chance


Kazenga LuaLua put in another good performance last night for the Reserves  against Sunderland, and helped the lads to a good 2-1 win against our local rivals.

Kazenga LuaLua – may get his chance at Man City

Now the 18 year-old hopes that his good form will have caught the eye og manager Joe Kinnear.

Kazenga told the Evening Chronicle today:

“I hope that some good reports go through to the manager ahead of Man City.” “All I can do is try my best in training and in the reserve team.”

“You always try to keep on impressing and I hope to get my chance soon.” “I’d love to be on the bus for that game.”

“I know Nicky and Danny can’t play in that game and I hope that the game at Man City is my chance.” “It’s a great stadium and there are some good players there.”

“They have been spending money, but I think that Newcastle can go there and get a result and I want to be part of that.”

LuaLua is of course the younger brother of former Newcastle striker  Lomana LuaLua, who we got from Colchester United, in 2000.  Kazenga has been restricted to just two substitute appearances so far this season.

LuaLua continued:

“We’re all happy to beat Sunderland – you are at any level to win a derby.”

“To do it away from home is brilliant for us, so we were all really happy in the dressing room afterwards.”

“I live in the city and I know how important it is to beat the Mackems.” “Before the game Richard (Money) didn’t need to tell us we needed to win because we all knew.”

“It is bad if you lose especially if you live in Newcastle, everybody wants you to beat Sunderland.”

“When the first team lost against them in the early part of the season, I knew how bad it was even though I was out with an injury.”

And of course right at the end of the Sunderland game there was a tragix injury to Tamas Kadar, who broke his shin bone and will now be out for up to 6 months:

“There were tough tackles going in and nasty challenges.” “Tamas has picked up a bad injury and it was not good for him.”

That will be it for Tamas this season, but we have a suspicion that this boy will be challenging hard for the first team before next season is out.

Comments welcome.

    He’s better than Lomana. Lomana was a headless chicken at times, but this kid is more of playmaker!

    If he had a rocket shot as well, he would be a total gem!!

    Play him!

    For God’s sake Joe play him.

    I’m a huge fan of Kazenga.

    He’s fast, dynamic and is hungry for the ball. He can dribble and his distribtion is improving all the time. The one thing he doesn’t do enough of is score but that will improve with more games – especially first team games.

    Every time he comes on our game seems to shift up the pitch and our attacking force looks so much more potent. Even though he’s a winger I’d be tempted to play him in a more central role, just to give us that drive through the centre of the park.

    Come on Joe, play him. He’s earned his chance.

    Sorry son but its JFK and he will only use the same 1st team. Barton & Geremi to replace those missing and same old 4 4 2 formation.

    If Im wrong I’ll will happily admit it but JFK aint nowt but predictable.

    I thought Lomana was class- great flair player! I even got his name on my shirt.

    But I’ll never forgive him for refusing to come back from loan, to help our injury crisis.

    That should be ‘Injury crisis’- nothing compared to these last few seasons. Shocking, just shocking. Poor Tamas!

    If he picks Geremi whose past it then JK has no clue on what he is doing.

    I’ve read about the 2008 accounts. I stand corrected, MA has actually paid off all the debt, whether there is a Directors loan, i’m not sure as the chronicle doesn’t state anything!

    The club is actually losing alot of money, and its mainly due to the stupidly high wage bill!

    Kaz is an exciting player, but may find himself out of his depth at Citeh. Still, “need’s must when the devil vomits in your handbag” as they say, so I’m looking forward to him getting a good run-out.

    There’s always a chance he can provide that unpredictability that comes of naivity, which can freak out defences.

    William, your team would do well. However i would like to do some changes;

    My team

    ——————Given——————

    -Edgar—-Colo—-Bassong —-Enrique-

    -N´Zogbia—-Barton-–Lua Lua—-Jonas-

    ———–Owen—–Ranger————–

    Left side-Enrique and Jonas link quite well together. I would love to see how a skillful guy like Lua Lua would complete the triangle.

    Right side- Would be defensive. N’Zogbia could cause some damage every now and then.. Barton and Edgar should not intervene in offense.

    This crap is depressing. We aren’t going to sign anyone apart from lovenkrands (but i wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t), we are stuck in a relegation battle, we are likely to get relegated if we don’t strengthen, we have a cockney bimbo Wise in charge of transfers and the club isn’t getting sold. Ashley or Llambias won’t talk to the fans and won’t to the supporters club. So what do we do? Fans are saying have another protest and others are saying just get behind the team. Sorry but for the most part of the season we have been getting behind the players and nothing! except where we are now! Protest is probably the only thing we can do in my eyes. But no mispellings this time.

    RyanToon- you’re right about Duff. Him and Jonas seem to pop up on the same wing more often than not though. Not necessarily a bad thing- a la Carroll’s goal!

    Taylor played in the Carlisle match to get some match fitness- so he should be available.

    Barton and Lua Lua would be a good combination in the middle. Would add a bit of graft and pace as well. Unfortunately Kinnear is old school and picks players based on seniority and so don’t be surprised to see Geremi alongside Barton against Man City or maybe N’Zogbia. How are young players ever going to prove themselves if every manager we have are scared to put them in. The likes of Edgar, Bassong, Carroll only ever got their chance as a last resort and i don’t think any of them have let us down, especially not com[ared to big earners like Geremi and Smith.

    Edgar might not be a world beater but what has he actually done wrong when he has played. He has even got us a few goals as well when starting and i don’t recall and Bramble-esque moments when called upon.

    Nuf-c….

    The accounts show why we are not getting transfers, Ashley is payin 10 million a year of the clubs debt.

    There isnt the money to spent wildely on players, im just frustrated at the lack the clubs ability to get players and finalise deals with the money there is available. So if theres 10 million…identify REALISTIC targets and fees in December, and contingency plans.
