Dan Gosling And James Perch Praised For Their Great Attitudes


Peter Beardsley, fresh from his Reserves side’s 5-1 hammering of Wigan yesterday, has praised some of the senior players that have played in the second string.

James Perch – worth his weight in gold at Newcastle

Dan Gosling played the whole game yesterday, and may now get a start for the Newcastle side against Spurs on Saturday, and the home crowd will get their first glimpse of the youngster – and we think they will be impressed by what they see.

Gosling had another very impressive game for Newcastle yesterday, and we suppose he will fight it out with Danny Guthrie for a starting central midfield position on Saturday.

Gosling also has something that is missing from the current Newcastle side – pace – and he showed that he is certainly very quick,  in yesterday’s game.

Reserve-team coach Beardsley had only good things to say about Dan today:

“Dan Gosling was a massive plus – we know we’ve got a player on our hands, that’s definite. It’s fantastic for us to have him.”

“We have a real player here and I’m delighted. His attitude has been sensational since he got here.”

“To be fair to him he’s been mentally and physically tough.”

Defender James Perch also got a goal for the Reserves in a game in which Nile Ranger looked great,  and scored three good goals.

Beardsley added some big compliments for James Perch:

“Perchy has been brilliant. From day one his attitude has been great.”

“Every morning he’s come in with a smile on his face and when he’s been left out he’s been in the dressing room and wanted the XI to win for this club.”

“He’s a brilliant pro.” “Those type of players are worth their weight in gold.”

Those are big compliments indeed from Peter.

And that’s why we think James Perch is going nowhere, and we still think he will have improved this season, and he may even be pushing for that right back spot again, but not at left back – please.

At the very least, James is a good squad player, and you can hardly fault his attitude when he plays for the first team, he plays like his life depends on it.

Those are the types of personalities we want to be at the Newcastle club these days.

Comments welcome.

    Cant wait until our squad is full fit, this is how I’d play it:

    —————–Harper——————-
    Simpson–S.Taylor–Collo–Enrique
    —————–Tiote——————–
    Jonas————————–Ben Arfa
    ———Barton——-Nolan————
    ——————Carroll——————

    Subs: Krul, Williamson, Kadar, Gosling, Guthrie, Routledge, Ranger.

    Reserves: Forster, R.Taylor, Perch, Campbell, Smith, Lua Lua, Xisco, Lovenkrands, Ameobi, Best.

    Youngster…plenty coming through to atleast add to the reserves if not 1st team next season.

    We currently have one of the youngest squads in the league as well, which is a good sign for the future.

    Except Lua Lua and Forster (and maybe perch as he can cover multiple positions), I wouldnt mind selling the rest of the reserves (above) in the summer and replacing them with youngsters. Our squad would then be epic. Challenging for europe next season defo, if we can stablise and push on.

    tdt- stop cutting and pasting your team sheet.

    Just watched that pardew interview. It’s fine I guess, sigh. He’s dull and steady and charisma free, nowt like the club itself. He wants us to start pushing at the top 10 !?!? – has someone told him we are already in the top 10? Nothing like reaching for the stars eh. But then we were in the top 10 when C Hughton was sacked so I don’t understand anything anymore.

    We are in the top ten, but there is only a couple of points difference between where we are and where we dont want to be!

    boater –

    Hes talking about finishing in the top ten, right now the league is so tight, two loses we could be right near the bottom.

    The next five games are key for me, we do well then i think we’ll be safe. 3 wins in the next 5 we can then look to europe imo

    @7 – I posted it again on here because I realised that there was a new article up by the time I had written it.

    What positions can gosling actually play? If its lb, lw and dm that would just be great!

    I thought Kadar was good cover for lb but obviously AP doesn’t think so.

    If we keep the injuries/suspensions under control for the rest of the season I think we could easily finish anywhere between 6th and 12th. Its a tight league, a good winning run will get us several places.

    Nope, not having it. Pardew should setting himself a higher target than a top 10 finish if we were 9th when hughton ‘failed’. Cronyism.

    ToonyAndy. Your predictions are pure Lawrenson-esque club snobbishness. Bolton for example, played us off the park.. the only club to do that this season – we couldn’t handle their forward line of elmander, taylor, davies. Lee hammered enrique – again only right winger to do that this season.

    I think we can look to get something from arsenal at home or liverpool away, maybe even more likely than blackpool/ stoke away, west brom at home as daft as that would have sounded a couple years ago.

    Good to see Perch getting praise.

    He’s came to the club in the summer and stepped up a league.

    When Nolan came to the club he was poor and like a number of players needed 6months – a year to settle in.

    Colo and Enrique the same.

    Perch has had lots of criticism for his performances, he just needs time.
    Judge him next season please.

    Toon Andy – far too optimistic for a club such as Newcastle this year. We’ve been far too inconsistent to take that many points from here to end of season. We’ll win some shockers and lose some shockers. I’m guessing 45 points is closer to reality. I don’t see Europe as a possibility. Our schedule ahead is more difficult than I think many realize. Finishing in top 12 would suit me just fine. Build from here and push on next season.

    boater –

    Hughton was a great person but manager? no, imo and i always said this, anyone able to get our championship teams respect could have taken us back to the prem. Our first team was so much better than anything else in the championship. And in the premier league, yes hughton got some gd results but that was more down to the players. Under hughton for me, it was more like nolan, smith, carroll and barton that ran the dressing room.

    You dont hear it so much now, Pardew is more of a manager. Thats what a club our size needed. He wouldnt ever be my first choice but hes a step up from hughton without a doubt.

    You acting like we are def gonna finish top ten, have you seen the table? lol, we are 7 points off relegation, two losses and we back in trouble. Two wins on the other hand and we are looking at europe.

    Its not the time to get confident, id still take 17th this year and everyone should. But i also see the potential in our squad and with a few additions in this incredibly tight league, we could COULD make europe

    If we remain unbeaten in the next 2 games,this could turn into a top 7 season for us because after Spurs and Fulham; we have Tiote,Saylor and AC returning,1 or 2 signings in,Gosling and Ranger pushing the first 11,HBA returning,no cup distractions,AP getting gud help from Carver. Who knows how far we can go,besides,we are already hard to beat and our creativity can only get better. But survival in the EPL is all I want
