When Haris Vuckic signed on for Newcastle two years last January, he was considered on of Europe’s brightest young players.
Haris Vuckic – this youngster is looking very good in pre-season
And while he has had a lot of injury problems these last two season, he’s had an excellent preseason so far, and scored again yesterday after coming on as a substitute in the second half.
Things may not be great for fans right now at Newcastle, but at least Harris is looking like he could be an excellent impact sub this season for Newcastle, and is as close as he’s ever been to the first team.
And Haris also seems to have a lot of time for the Newcastle fans, and yesterday the 6’3″ tall Harris took his chance so well, as he did at Columbus last Tuesday evening.
And it’s very likely that Haris will start the game tomorrow night against Gateshead at the International Stadium, which has 7.30 pm kick-off.
And it looks Alan Pardew will also start Mike Williamson, who needs more games based on his rather rusty performance yesterday at Leeds United.
Alan Pardew talked about Haris Vuckic to the Newcastle press today:
“Haris is a tidy player. He’s been out so long, we’re just trying to introduce him gradually. He’s pushing and pushing.” “I’ll probably give him a game against Gateshead – we’ll take a strong team there.”
“If our fans want to travel there, they’ll see mainly first-team squad members who need another game. Willo will possibly need to play again, because he looks a little bit match shy.”
“It’ll be a decent side, and Haris will play in that.” “It’s going to be a stronger team, and the first-team staff will take it. It’ll be nice for Gateshead, and nice for our fans too.”
Newcastle fans would like to see a couple more of the youngsters come through next season, as Shane Ferguson did so well earlier this year when he came in for the injured Jose Enrique.
And Haris has always looked a potential great player of the future, and we just hope he keeps coming through and can avoid major injuries this season.
That will at least help to lift the spirits of Newcastle fans.
