Well At Least Harris Vuckic Is Looking Very Good


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.

Comments welcome.

    I think Vuckic and Gosling are the two standout players from pre season for me.

    Vuckic is certainly shaping up to become a good player, but we still need another striker. Erdinc would have been quality, but do we have anymore confirmed targets?

    Not great times. I keep looking at this: http://nufc.com/2011-12html/league-record.html

    It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Mike Ashley only comes in at no. 3 at bad things that have happened to our club:

    1. KK jacking it in
    2. Sacking Sir Bob
    3. Ashley buying the club

    In order of bleak, that’s why we’re where we are now. Select stats:

    – We’ve only finished in the top half of the EPL ONCE since SBR was sacked.
    – 17 years in the EPL, we’ve finished in the top half 9 times
    – on avg. we have never really conceded ‘that’ many more/fewer goals in the EPL, our success has always been governed scoring goals.

    That barton thing can only be bad news.

    With vuckic, he looks very classy. Hes a beast and only 18 so should get him working on his aerial ability so hed be a big man with classy skills.

    I reckon he might be terminating his Twiiter account at the request of the club. He trained this morning and was in good spirits judging by his other tweets. F hope so. A big mouth, an eager following and a platform to say what he likes with zero censorship.

    Barton Leaving?

    For: Promise of champions league football. An extra year or two at stupid level wages.

    Agaist: Team he goes to gets knocked out of CL at early stage. Is a squad player so he dos’t get a game anyway (despite new managers assurances). Loses the respect of a large number of people who have witnessed how well he has done in turning his life around.
    Has to make do with current salary which is more in a week than most supporters earn in three years.

    Oh guys while I’m logged in. Everyone is entitled to their opinions. I like this blog and appreciate the effort made in maintaining it….big style.

    I find all the negative stuff very boring. The lack of respect to club owners and managers is, well, something from the past. We need to move on. We need to be respectful in all areas of life and it starts by respecting yourselves.

    Barton has always been a fool to himself – and who knows what is the real truth? Has the club decided months ago that they did not want three or four strong minded senior members ruling the roost of the squad disguised as team morale, but really meaning hang on lads we’re not getting any younger let’s band together, appear to be running the show as a unit and THEN let them try to get rid of us and our unsustainable deals? Nolan’s legs had gone by the end of the season and without Carrolls’ knockdowns he was a liability in a premiership midfield that dies without real pace everywhere – he may well have had a deal there in principle in January, but sorry mate, to keep you on just for leadership qualities on £50K a week is crazy, and remember young Gosling came to us because Everton had’nt put anything in writing! Sorry Joey – I know you’re playing superbly right now but the constant sniping appears to be designed to get you a move rather than for the benefit of us ” suffering supporters”.

    We will need vuckic this season and the other youngsters we ain’t going to sign anybody else few injuries and were bolloxed cheers to the fat man and lambiarse what a joke this transfer window is wasting time on somebody like erdinc who is shit anyway routs is gone but he would of been worth keeping now which seems a bit desperate I know keegan was spot on espn quoting that MA will not spend a penny fingers crossed for this season!
