Shane Ferguson Raring To Go For Breakthrough Season


It could well be that by the end of this coming season,  Shane Ferguson is the first team left back at Newcastle.

Shane Ferguson – could be big breakthrough season for 19 year-old

That’s hardly a surprising statement to the Newcastle fans who saw Shane play so very well when he deputized for the injured Jose Enrique in February, and it looks like Jose will soon be on his way  – since he wants to leave Newcastle.

And even if  Newcastle bring in a  new experienced left back in place of Jose, which they will very likely do, there’s still a decent chance that Shane will be a first teamer at the end of this season.

The Irishman will start at left-back against Darlington tonight, and fans will see he has built himself up physically over the summer, on that famous steak and potatoes diet,  that Alan Pardew kept talking about – a very high protein diet.

Ferguson told the Newcastle press today that he’s really looking forward  to the upcoming season:

“I have moved into the first-team changing room.”  “It is good to start the season there, and I am just looking forward to the season ahead.”

“I just have to keep impressing.”  “The Darlington game should be good. I am looking forward to getting back in the swing of things.”

 “There will be a couple of other young lads going to America too, and we will try our hardest to be in the squad for the start of the season.”

“The manager has said we are going there to win.”  “It is good to be back, and hopefully I can keep pushing on again.”

“I am just raring to go.”  “It was good to be home for six weeks and to see the family and friends, but it is good to be back now.

“I was starting to get bored in the house!”  “Now it is down to the business of football and I cannot wait to get going.”

“All the new lads have settled in well and they are good additions to the squad.”

It will be good to see how Shane performs tonight, and there was always a chance that if Jose did stay on Tyneside, Shane could even be pushing him for the starting position at left back.

This lad looks like a great up and coming player,  either at left back or even on the left  wing, where he started his career.

Comments welcome.

    Dunno if he is just going because he can, but Lua Lua has said on twitter he is off to brighton. Could be signing soon? I would have thought he would have atleast been on the bench for tonight, but obviously not

    Nope, he is a young lad who has come good and can only get better.

    I’m excited to see him this season coz when he was involved last season he looked like a bag of tricks but also did the basics right.

    Nice to see a young player getting an opportunity and seizing it, he deserves a place in the squad for his efforts last season. A bright prospect for nufc, let’s hope he has plenty of opportunity to impress again this season. Is ferguson a left back or left wing, he looks strong going forward.

    “On the other hand, I can’t help but feel that Bendtner is a little underrated. He’s strong in the air, has an impressive goal-scoring record”

    Underated, im sorry this guy is WAY overated, they state Impressive goal scoring record.

    Yeah very impressive is you think last year scoring 2 in 17 GAMES is impressive, his ratio is over a goal every 8.5 games, thats like 2 times worse than Amoebi.

    Last TWO SEASONS he played 40 games scoring 8 goals, ratio of 4, im sorry if this doesnt state how Overated and Poor Bendtner is i dunno what does.

    And this is not even touching upon him thinking he thinks he is amazing, poor attitude,slow,lazy etc…

    Where have Blackburn got £12 million from?! They’ve just agreed to buy Pavone on a free, so surely they have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING left from Phil Jones’s £16 million! Those free transfers lads, its like pi$$ing money away 😉

    I cant see Honda going to Blackburn, I think he is worth more than £12M, I can see him at Arsenal myself.

    DJ Campbell’s move to QPR is on hold coz they cant agree terms – could do worse than him like.

    Also see they have offered Webber a contract, doing some shrewd deals there.

    Lol Blackburn have struggled to get Pavone on a FREE, no chance of getting Keisuke.

    And also Kei said he didnt want to come to England he prefers La Liga IF HE MOVED.
