Edgar Future Uncertain At Newcastle – Just Like Lots Of Others


It’s often strange how some players come to prominence under different managers and some are cast aside, for one reason or another.

David Edgar – future at Newcastle still uncertain – join the list David

Just ask Robbie Keane about that, when he was at Liverpool.

And a similar thing is happening right now with our 21 year-old defender David Edgar, who was brought in from the shadows at Newcastle on Saturday, and the young lad took his chance with a solid and error-free performance at the back for Newcastle at Stoke.

Iain Dowie today has praised David Edgar, after he stepped in out of the wilderness for Shearer on Saturday, although the 21 year old Canadian’s future is still unclear on Tyneside, with his current deal set to expire at the end of the season.

Iain Dowie told the Evening Chronicle today:

“I think Alan has shown a great deal of belief in him.” “He’s certainly not frightened to make decisions like that.” “He felt it was right at the time.”

“His performance was imperative. David cleared one of the line and he did well.” “We’ve got Steven Taylor coming back now and it means a lot of competition for places.”

“David did fine and it gave him a boost.” “He’s looked good in training and had a spring in his step.” “As far as his future is concerned, Alan hasn’t had time to even think about it.”

“That’s something that is still to be decided as and when.” “He got his chance and he’s taken it very well for now.”

But lots of players will have joined David recently in having their futures unclear at the club, because a good number will leave in the summer if we do get relegated.

If Newcastle take the drop and Alan stays in charge of the club, two big “ifs” of course, then David will likely stay on as one who can bring the side right back up next season, as David would be more than good for the side in the Championship, and his wages would not be too high either.

But there’s still lots of uncertainties on where we’ll be next season, and until those clear up there’ s little sense in talking too much about who will stay and go, but some speculation will still continue.

But it seems the sooner we get a win the better, and the longer that first win under Shearer is delayed, the more likely it will that we’ll be in the Championship next season.

Comments welcome.

    He had a decent game against Stoke, he’s young and has the potential to be quite good for us. Why not give him a new contract? I’d rather see us keep on young and hungry players like Edgar than terrible old timers like Cacapa.

    Hope he gets a new deal, if Kinnear was still in charge Cacapa would have been given a new contract and Edgar released.

    I do not understand why david did not get a chance after playing under roader! Alot of our youngsters in the past have been looked over for new signings. I know I would not stick around as a youngster at NUFC if I did not feel I would get a chance to play for the first team.
    David if I was you I would look for a team that would appreciate you, espesially if Shearer does not stay on!

    Did you see the spurs youth team won the bellinzona tournament at the weekend. They beat barca in the semis and sporting lisbon in the final. Bearing in mind taarabt,dos santos,rose,hutton,obika,townsend are all on loan at championship clubs i think the team should be applauded. The future is bright.

    When he first came he maybe had a couple decent performances, but I seem to recall somebody saying that the drubbing by Portsmouth killed him and reckon that’s probably about right.

    I would like to congradulate the spurs youth team on winning a useless cup! Mixing with the best clubs in the world would really give them confidence, but the problem is benny you are still going to be years behind arsenal when it comes to bring through world class youth that could make your first team.
