Newcastle And Gateshead Form A Win-Win Relationship

Gateshead will become an even more  important club for Newcastle United in the years ahead.

Ian Bogie – Gateshead manager

With Newcastle being so close to Gateshead – just across the River Tyne – Gateshead are well placed to take a number of  Newcastle young talent on loan, to give them valuable first team playing experience.

And it’s really a win-win for both clubs, as Gateshead also get the advantage of having some top young Magpies play for them.

And the standard of football at Gateshead will only improve, as they attempt to climb the leagues in England, and get back somewhere close to the Championship say, over the next several seasons.

Gateshead have already taken some of our best youngsters, players like James Tavernier, Jak Alnwick, Jeff Henderson and Paul Dummett, and manager Ian Bogie, who himself is a Geordie, is all for the arrangement that he has helped develop with Newcastle:

“We’ve taken the likes of James Tavernier and Jak Alnwick,” “When they find it difficult to get in at Newcastle, we’ve got this great link because I’ve got good contacts there.”

“Peter Beardsley’s been fantastic, he comes to watch our games.” “I think Alan Pardew saw in pre-season when we gave them a really good game, that we play in the right way and that this is a good place for his players to come and learn their trade.”

“It’s a high standard, we’re competitive, we play the game in the right way and it’s a great breeding ground for these players.” “We look after them, they get a good grounding and great experience.”

Newcastle will also be creating good relationships with other clubs, so their youngsters can get first team experience, and Carlisle United are another side that have formed a win-win relationship with Newcastle.

When you have a huge investment in Youth, as Newcastle do, it’s important for the lads to get first team games, as part of their football development.

    Since Newcastle United is the only big football around Newcastle, it would be good for us to have teams such as Gateshead, Blyth, South Shields and Durham move up the league 🙂

    From Last Post:

    I think realistically and to improve the squad i would sign the following (i keep having to change my list):

    RB: Mathieu Debuchy: we all know why; outstanding full back who can defend and attack equally well + good understanding with Ben Arfa and Cabaye.

    CB: Cristian Zapata: Cheaper alternative to the much talked about Mbiwa. At 6’2? he can cause problems at both ends but unlike Douglas he can run faster than a snail (he could keep up with Long better than Collo could). He’s very versatile; can play across the whole backline.

    CM: Rasmus Elm/Marvin Martin: Now both of these players are very good at what they do. Both are good at set pieces and both are good footballers. Elm is better at set pieces and Martin is possibley the overall better player however i think Elm is more realistic as i expect he’s cheaper, Martin wants to join a CL side also we desperately need a player like Elm who can deliver consistantly from set pieces.

    2 Forwards: Junior Hoilett & Hueng-Min Son; both young with bags of potential, quick, can score from set pieces (Son especially he scored an absolute cracker for Hamburg this year), skillful, good at finishing also both can play out wide or as the CF. I’d probably use Son as the CF when Ba and Cisse were at ACON due to his height and maybe deploy Hoilett just behind him.

    Net Spending: Debuchy: £6.5M, Zapata: £5M, Rasmus Elm: £6-7M, Hoilett: free (£3M compensation) and Son: £7M
    Total: £28M

    Of course Simpson and co will leave so with the income from that we’ll probably only spend around £20M. If Ba does leave then any out of Luuk de Jong, Oliver Giroud or Bas Dost would be good replacements. Hopefully as well we can bring in the youngster Gael Bigrirama from Cov for £1M.

    @ SupaToonKid

    I also hope we can get Debuchy, Zapata and Hoilett because they would be very good signings.

    I don’t think we are going to spend net £20M (hope I’m wrong)

    I would drop Son and Elm and use the money to sign a Adam Johnson.

    In addition replacement for guthrie

    In central midfield we can use Tiote,Cabaye,Gosling,Jonas,Abeid,vuckic and hopefully a new face in for guthrie,

    Earlier you said newcastle are a bigger club than Juventus.. NO WAY

    What about darlo?

    Darlo are gone mate lol the last I heard they were stripped from there players, the FA took the name of them (they are no longer officaly darlington fc) and then they got there FA cup rights taken off them (not like they cud play in it)

    So really since they have no name or players, I think its game over for em…

    Chelsea have spent about the same amount on Hulk,Hazard & Marin, as Liverpool spent on Carroll,Downing & Henderson. Perspective. -S

    @ Indian

    The fee on Carroll was very much because Chelsea paid so much for torres. So i think u should have torres in there when you are comparing.

    Blimey, SupaToonKid.

    We would be lucky to sign 1/2 of those players. Theres no chance we are going to get them all, let alone spend so much within 1 window.

    At most we would probably spend half the amount for all those players this window, save the rest for January and evaluate the squad then buy in area’s we need improving on.

    Adam Johnson might of just helped himself get out of Man City for a couple of million cheaper, about time Pardiola got a grip of him, made him into a better person.

    If we could get De Jong for 7 million we should buy him regardless of the situation with Ba. We need a qualitystriker when both cisse and ba are gone in african nation cup

    I’d be surprised if Ba is sill here come September; we definitely need cover for Ciase when he goes on ACON duty

    The livliest I’ve seen this blog in awhile when some NOB came on here last night and called KK a moron,was certainly better than the ‘ I think we should sign …….’ topic.

    True, but he might want to fight for a place in the team and i would rather have a replacement first (if Ba leaves). All the top teams have quality on the bench.

    @JFA i didnt read the whole arguement last night but i somewhat agree with both sides. KK bought about the good times at newcastle no doubt and should be remembered for that.

    It does irk me a little that he has walked out on us twice though. Sir Bobby would never have walked.

    Chelsea are getting very dangerous, they will def challenge for the title next season. 433, with hulk, torres and hazard is f*****g good.

    From what I have read today.

    The more I see from Clyne the more I like the guy. He is clearly skilled and everybody keeps saying we need someone to help out with attacks on the right. He can also cross well. But can he adequately defend? in the prem?

    I am still hoping for Debuchy. Jesper made a good point about the relative cost and achievements of each.

    De Jong looks decent enough in the video and has a powerful strike. But whenever I’ve watched a game he also looks a bit flukey. Like a younger, slightly butter but also luckier Bendtner tbh.

    But at his age for a decent fee as a replacement for Ba I’d take him. Carr has watched Twente a lot this season so he will know
