Sammy Ameobi And Haris Vuckic Top Young Talent On Tyneside


It’s been another eventful week for Alan Pardew at Newcastle.

Haris Vuckic – top youngster at Newcastle – aiming for the stars

Newcastle were reported to FIFA by French club Sochaux over their approach for striker Modibo Maiga, and Alan’s former club Charlton Athletic reported the Tyneside club to the Premier League over their approach for their goalkeeper Rob Elliot,  and then the popular Joey Barton left for QPR on Friday.

Just another  typical week in the life of the Newcastle United football club.

But Newcastle have won both their games, at local rivals Sunderland 1-0 last Saturday, and at Scunthorpe 2-1 after extra time, on Thursday night.

Pardew seems to be taking it all in his stride as he prepares for today’s home against Fulham:

“It’s the same every week here. I just look forward to the training ground and the matches, and everything else is tough. But I love it,” 

“Obviously, we are in a period now when fans are looking for the board to bring in players to replace the ones we have lost, as I am.”

“My job is to put pressure on the board for the fans to try to get these guys over the line, and that’s what I am trying to do.”

And on Thursday night, Newcastle saw their youth policy starting to pay off,  with a stunning strike for the winning goal from 19 year old Sammy Ameobi, the younger brother of Shola.

Sammy Ameobi – brilliant goal at Scunthorpe

Both youngsters will be on the bench tomorrow when Fulham visit St James’ Park, and Alan had some great praise for Sammy:

“With the ability he has, he is going to be a big player for us. We are really, really happy for him. He’s a smashing lad and everybody in Newcastle should be proud of him.”

“We’re very excited about Sammy,” “He’s going to be a big player and it helps that his big brother and his parents look after him very well.”

We’ll just point out that big brother Shola is one inch shorter than Sammy and the 19 year-old may still be growing!

Newcastle seem to have some great young talent at the club, and Alan talked about when he first arrived last December, and  everybody told him about the then 18 year-old Slovenian U21 International Haris Vukic:

“When I first arrived I remember the staff saying to me: ‘We’ve got a really good young player but he’s injured at the moment,'” “This tall, nice, Slovenian guy kept passing me in the corridor and smiling. Haris is such a nice guy.”

“He’s a lovely boy who we’ve got big hopes for; he’s got tremendous technique. Haris needs to learn to cope with the physical demands of the Premier League but he’s only 19 and his potential is excellent.”

“He’s got a really clever pass on him. It’s a pass about 85% of Premier League footballers couldn’t even see.”

Haris looked very good when he came on about five minutes after Sammy Ameobi on Thursday night, and both youngsters did themselves no harm at all,  as Newcastle continue to follow the Arsenal model of creating your own players by getting them in very young and developing them on Tyneside.

It seems to be working very well at the moment, and we expect Sammy and Haris, as well as Shane Ferguson and James Tavernier to come through big time for Newcastle  this  season.

At least the youngsters are looking up at Newcastle.

Howay The Lads!!

    Graham Carr has gone ill, I’d honestly on a reduced pay as you play deal get Hargreaves in for Barton cover. If I know huge if, he stays fit he works endlessly. I’d go back in for that Blackburn youngster Houillot or along those lines. I’d take either of these left backs mentioned or both. Striker wellllllllll it would be popular but I’d go for Cameron Jerome. Before I get smashed here Pardew wanted prem experience and we have been linked with unheard of unproven foreign players. Also we have to be realistic albeit due to Fat Pie Direct who we can attract. Sturridge, Defoe, Crouch would never come even if we met the asking price. The first two are London boys and wouldn’t leave.
    I am concerned about the lack of British players we now have especially with blatter and plantini undoubtedly getting there way. But other than cost pardew and Ashley have opted away from getting anymore boozers which is synonymous with British players. And reluctantly we haven’t won anything with them so toute possible???????

    Bruce’s days are numbered:

    “Ellis Short, the Texas billionaire bankrolling Sunderland, is demanding improvement as the pressure grows on boss Steve Bruce and chairman Niall Quinn. Short is seeking better than last season’s 10th-placed Premier League finish from under-fire Bruce, who spent £25m on 10 new players in the summer.!

    I’m so glad these youngsters are coming to the fore. Both getting glowing reviews from AP, soon enough they’ll be illuminating St James’s Park regularly.

    The four Ed mentions, really excite me, then there’s Abeid and the projected Situ. Kadar can still make it too, in my opinion, just needs an injury free season to put the wheel in motion again.

    The future is bright. 😀

    Translated:

    According to The Sun, Nolan Roux should commit to Newcastle before the end of the transfer window. The French striker is in effect, the priority in attack on Alan Pardew. His transfer fee is estimated at 8 million euros. This absolutely scares Newcastle should make an offer soon.

    Where is niafron when you need him?

    Transfers – Cissokho in Newcastle on Monday?
    The transfer of Aly Cissokho long in the pipes should be set this weekend. The player is bound for Newcastle.

    Aly Cissokho should conduct his final game with Lyon over the weekend. English and Rhone leaders are almost agreed on the transfer of the French left-back. Cissokho is, in the Anglo-Saxon press, expected on Monday to spend his medical examination.

    After transmitting unsuccessfully bid for the Lyonnais Aly Cissokho, Newcastle reached an agreement for the transfer of Dutch international left back Erik Pieters (23, PSV Eindhoven), whose contract expires in June 2014. L’opération est estimée aux alentours de huit millions d’euros. The operation is estimated at around eight million euros.

    Par ailleurs, les Magpies lorgnent toujours l’attaquant sochalien Modibo Maïga (23 ans) et se sont vus proposer le Brestois Nolan Roux (23 ans). In addition, the Magpies still eyeing striker Modibo Maiga Sochaux (23 years) and were offered the Brestois Nolan Roux (23).

    See what I mean.

    Hopefully its both they where talking about getting Santon i read somewhere to play on the right and Pieters on the left, as I said before Cissoko is versatile so maybe he will play right, who knows Its nice to hear something is going on anyway, but will still not hold breath until pen is to paper

    I just can’t believe that MA would buy 2 defenders and a striker….if he does I give all the credit to Pardew for loosening his pockets.

    Don’t know but I believe he is strictly a LB whereas Pieters can play CB if needed.

    Aye still think we will only get 1or other tho n I’d gan for pieters he’s Dutch don’t know if ihe played in the world cup but he’s there LB now so c.ant be bad. I could get the reasoning behind brinning both in so they get pressure to perform straight away. But the fat man hasn’t suprised me yet
