Pardew Keen On Youngsters Getting Games Out On Loan – Good

We have often wondered how players like Haris Vuckic and Shane Ferguson, as just two examples, can improve quickly,  if they are only playing the odd game for the Newcastle Reserve side.

Haris Vuckic – to be sent out on loan in January?

Far better get them out on loan, as in the case of Fraser Forster as one good example – who played 42 times last season at Norwich and has already played 15 times for Glasgow Celtic this season – so he is playing a first team game every week, and making great strides forward in his football development.

And it seems that Alan Pardew is keen that some of the top Newcastle youngsters, who do not even make the bench for the Newcastle first team,  are sent out on loan, so that they are playing every week.

It seems that Nile Ranger will get a lot of playing time for Newcastle this season, as he seems like he’s almost now the number 3 striker at the club – if not number 3 then certainly number 4 behind Danish striker Peter Lovenkrands.

And it now seems that under Alan Pardew Newcastle fans will see a number of our top youngsters being sent out on loan during the January transfer window.

This is what Alan said today:

“It is important for young players to go on loan. They need to go out and get a feel what it’s about.”

“That is much better than playing in the reserves and getting the odd game here and there.”

We would expect Haris Vuckic, Shane Ferguson, Ryan Donaldson,  Brad Inman and Phil Airey to be candidates for being sent out on loan in January for the rest of the season, so they can get some first team games – somewhere.

That seems the only way they will progress, and of course it’s what top clubs like Man United, Chelsea and Arsenal do all the time with their youngsters.

Having good relationships with clubs who will take the Newcastle bairns on loan, will be an important thing for the Newcastle club to develop, as Alan and the Newcastle coaches guide the young lads through to the Newcastle first team in the coming seasons.

    Pardew this and Pardew that. Apparently he is going to be around long enough to turn Carroll into a great player. If the fat man had appointed Santa as manager, it would no doubt be Santa is gonna do this and Santa is gonna do that. Mind you |Santa has more chance than Pardew. We all know that Pardew is a stop gap appointment so lets have a bit of reality in this pieces rather than ramping Pardew up in to some sort of Wenger. Even Wenger would fail at the hands of the fat man. No self respecting manager wants to work for Mr Sports Direct.

    Dead right. Jonas is easily the worst player in the team. Smudger is the worst squad player. Jonas cannot cross and he cannot shoot. He loses the ball in dangerous places which puts the back 4 under immediate threat. He used to be able to run down blind alleys but does not even seem to want to do that now. Useless. Nice pony tail mind you. I think an alice band might top it off nicely. Complimented by matching snook and mittens.

    I hope the youngsters that just cannot make it into first team yet can go out on loan. Its the perfect choice for them.

    I agree too that Jonas is like the worst player on our team at the moment. can’t cross can’t shoot, is finding it tough to get through players too now which he use to do very easily. We really need Lua Lua and Ben Arfa back.
