Newcastle Youngster Doing Well Out On Loan


Paul Dummett turned 21 last month and is currently out on loan at Scottish Premier Side St. Mirren, who also happen to play in black and white stripes, and Paul seems to do be doing very well for the Scottish club, from all reports.

Paul Dummett – doing well at St. Mirren

Newcastle-born Paul joined St. Mirren on the last day of the transfer window in August, and is on loan there until next January, and he has so far started 5 times for the side, who are now 7th top of the league with 12 points from their nine league games.

And former Newcastle coach Tommy Craig, who also played for Newcastle from 1974 through 1977, is now part of the staff at St. Mirren – a club that was founded way back in 1877 and is located in Paisley, Renfrewshire, just west of Glasgow.

Tommy Craig says Dummett is doing very well in Scotland:

“Dummy’s making steady progress and we’re delighted. This is a great experience for him.”

Hopefully, Paul will follow the path of James Tavernier over the last 18 months, when the former Leeds United youngster played over 50 times out on loan, and his game has come on big time, and he is now fighting for a first team place on Tyneside.

Dummett, who is a Welsh U21 International, had a spell at Gateshead where he played 10 times for the Tyneside club, located south of the River Tyne, and Paul may even stay the full season on loan  north of the border.

    football’s a harsh, harsh world. i think we can all realize we’ll never see the day he’ll be playing in the first team. we need to stop clutching at straws and buy some real first team defensive reinforcements

    Sorry to be confrontational but we should all lay off davey. If you have read his posts over time you will realise he is a good lad.

    He does seem to have a bee in his bonet, though. I can only guess because everyone is ganging up on the poor guy.

    He does not post too often nowadays.

    Tav – needs to be more consistent to be in the 1st team. Loan to the championship after Xmas will do him a lot of good.

    To come on to this blog and listen to the breathtaking arrogance of most about how this club should be run and how we are doomed beacuse we dont do it there way is beyond the pale for me.

    They virtually got nothing right over the last three seasons and still yous are sitting on your high horse.

    BE HONEST AND TRUE WITH YOURSELVES AND HAVE A THINK BACK TO YOUR PREVIOUS THREE SEASONS PREDICTIONS, NO MAKE THAT FOUR BEACUSE MOST SAID WE WOULD NOT GET OUT OF THE COCA COLA FOR YEARS.

    matyy, it is the other way around, what were all the neggers saying to people who supported the way the current regime were running the club 4 years ago

    it was yous who were instrumental in the keyboard abuse, things have turned full circle and posters like me bills dannyo and davyb are just letting you know that your opinions and the rest of the neggers dont work for us.

    Just to pick up on something that Munster said in an earlier thread, if you question MA and DL it does not necessarily make you “anti-Ashley” nor does it automatically make you “pro-sensible” either. Just in the same way that if you prefer to be positive about things that doesn’t make you “pro-Ashley” nor does it make you “anti-sensible”

    The sensibility of people is not in the views that they hold it is the way that they hold them, if they can make a point, back it up and defend it against conflicting views without resorting to tearing each other to shreds then surely that is what constitutes a sensible opinion, regardless what side of the line you are in relation to Ashley.

    Just think that if we all took a few steps back before throwing ourselves into arguments with each other we could get much further forward in terms of getting intelligent conversation from one another, but that is just my opinion, not trying to tell anyone how they should or should not post.

    Now have at each other! 😀

    Well, yesterday was such an easy game for you to play
    But lets face it things are so much easier today
    Guess you need some bringing down

    Yo…..Stop being such a negging mackem ffs! 😉

    This obsessive labeling needs to stop. Someone can question without being a negger (although there certainly are some on the blog as well) and some people can like most of the going ons at the club and not be an Ashley dingleberry.

    Stop trying to put things in boxes, but if you insist on it, pleased make sure you leave some air holes.

    are people seeing something im not or are you all just agreeing with the press? bigi is crap, he kicks widly at the ball, no control and ive yet to see him complete a pass, he played for a championship side that was RELEGATED so why is he in the prem? and as for williams, OMG, i woudnt even have him in my local sunday pub team, perch on the other hand has been excellent for us, slipped up when he gad to switch ftom rb to cb but otherwise a solid defender, 442 doesnt work with the toon but with ba wanting to be up front and not on the left then niether will 433. i think we should play 4-2-3-1 play cabaye and tiote i. rdm and ldm fergy on left wing with ban arfa on right, ba as lone striker and cisse in cam, reason for cam is he likes to roam and was influential both up front and in midfield last season, also playing him in behind ba puts both strikers in front of goal and im certain this is the key to them becoming a lethal partnership. just throwing this out there but what about buying abdel taarabt when qpr get relegated? his style of play is like tiote and ben arfa combined and he has an eye for goal, him on left with ben arfa on right, ba up from with cisse behind then tiote and cabaye, lb santon rb debuchy cb collocini and douglas is for me a top 4 side easy

    There is such a thing as ‘mindless optimism’ – even footballers usually preface their predictions with ‘hopefully’

    I am very pleased with the progress the club has made, but I don’t think we will finish in a European place – that is not a criticism of MA DL, AP or the squad/individuals, it is to do with the extra games and injuries.
    I hope I am proved wrong – it’s just an opinion.

    There is a difference between being a negger and ganging up on someone, we are on the same side!

    This blog needs positive and negative comments to bring out debate. If everyone thought the same then there would be no flow of conversation.

    I think we will not have any players going away for ACON as tiote will be injured so not go to the tournament. Not based on any evidence, just on the fact he is picking up more and more niggling injuries.

    If he does go to ACON then he will have to fight for his place once he returns. Who will take his place? Anita or Bigi?

    obviously you didn’t read back then because i was hardly causing division. don’t say ‘you’ (as in me) because it fits your argument better

    i’m all for the blueprint laid out for us…..but NOT buying players is NOT following through with that blueprint of challenging ‘at the top’ (the board’s words, not mine)

    Yo….Well, in your case perhaps it’s best you’re labelled. Perhaps a health notice warning people not to feed you or get too close.

    Some people just feel more comfortable and safe in their box.

    Can someone tell me what happened last night then with the Ivory Coast vs Senegal game? It got called off, right? Wouldn’t that mean a replay?

    the only two observations i’ve made is that i don’t think dummy will make it (don’t kid yourself)

    and that the board, in order to fulfill their own, well stated plan, needs to buy players

    not 10mil players, hell, not even 5mil players, but we need bodies all over the field and that, to me at least, is obvious if we really are to challenge at the top, as MA and DL have stated. that’s what THEY said they want to do….this isn’t coming out of thin air, man

    not sure if they have 100% but every one was assuming (as of last night) the african FA would award the win to the ivory coast

    the what: lunacy. if i was a club owner i would never allow my players back to that continent without both safety and financial guarantees

    Matty….Just as we don’t really believe what Derek tells normally, I’m taking this latest release of intellect with a pinch of salt also.

    I honestly don’t believe our enquiries for Debuchy and Douglas were because the board were, well bored. What it does mean is that we will be bringing in players when their is a bargain to be had (Be it transfer fee, wages or both). So, there will be progress made and genuine first team players coming in (much like Tiote, Cabaye, Ba, Cisse, Santon, etc), just not at the rate we’d like.

    I’ll go back to one of the big points of the summer – this perceived missed opportunity and this idea that we wont be able to ever catch up again, which quite frankly, is ridiculous imo.

    I get this whole method is frustrating, but I simply cannot buy in to this mediocrity target that fans are saying is the “real” ambition of the club and I tell you what, I’d take the current set up over the circus that has been NUFC for what, the past 10 years? Something needed to be done and it has been.

    Only in time will we know if I’ve been duped by Mike and Derek and their silky soft whispers

    Matty….It would seem a sensible call, even the biggest optimist wouldn’t think Senegal had a chance of getting back in to that one, even if Cisse and Ba played their best ever 10 minutes of football.

    The safety aspect is a worry. What guarantees can they make though? No fans will be allowed to attend games? Got to say, seemed to take them ages to gain any control or even to start dealing with the fires. Far from impressed, but what do I know?

    agree wholeheartedly with the latter points (about the past decade). don’t agree with the notion that it’s ridiculous to think we missed a big opportunity (imo). honestly, i don’t want to have to wait another decade for a striker to like demba ba….can shola really hack it to 42? 😀

    also, i agree that debuchy and douglas weren’t all smoke and mirrors….not in the slightest. BUT! what happened to our contingencies GC AP and DL all stated from January through May were in place in case our first choices were unavailable on our terms? the ones they believed to be just as good? that’s what’s frustrating to me

    I’m not FA official, so i’m not sure which guarantees could be made. but, again, if i were a club owner, that would be in whichever FA’s hands to figure out. otherwise i’d say ‘sorry, lads.’

    harsh hypothetical stance, for sure. would probably turn a lot of players off but hell, if i was in a position to pay out of millions upon millions of pounds each year for a player to do a job give or take 40 times a calender year for an hour and a half, i know which way i’d go, personally

    Matty…..Sorry, didn’t really make my point well there. Didn’t mean to say it was ridiculous to say it was a missed opportunity – it may well prove to have been, but the fact people seem to make out it will be our only chance to push on, which is simply not true. I do understand that lack of investment may lead to purple players (gags) wanting to leave and thus putting us further back, I just don’t believe we’re there yet. Once again, I hope I’m not proved wrong.

    As for contingencies, I get a feeling it will be Debuchy and Douglas we’re after again. For me, the risk they’ve decided to take is, can we manage half a season to get the two players we really want. For the sake of four months, do we settle for what they think is second best? Could be well off, but it’s what I believe.

    Wait, you don’t work for the FA? You’ve been misleading me Matty 🙂

    I know what you’re saying, not sure how attractive that will be for international players mind. It goes hand in hand with progress. You get better players, they will want to represent their countries. Doesn’t mean no precautions should be made mind. Tricky one, thankfully, not our department.

    no no no, only African players. let’s face the reality that the entirety of that continent is susceptible to outbreaks of violence.

    and the other thing, Ibiza…i like graham carr, i do, but i don’t think he’s the godsend he’s been hyped up to be. If we are indeed back in for Debuchy and Douglas, i think that speaks volumes. are they both good players? sure. better than what we have? that is up to serious debate.

    time will tell on Amalfitano but i was thoroughly underwhelmed with him in preseason. Marvs, as much as i want to like him, in reality has yet to make the grade. Obertan (who arguably was pards buy but was approved by GC nonetheless) is up for even more debate. Ands at pards’ behind-closed-doors speak in mentioned that when he first arrived he wanted Lallana as his first choice CM. GC said no, he’s not good enough, he’ll never make it. who here honestly believes he would not make a welcome addition to our squad? We pushed hard for Mariappa last January, and he’s not alright at Reading the two times i’ve watched him, but is he better than perch? imo no. better than williamson? imo probably on par, but his pace probably puts him ahead.

    not bashing GC but he is not the end all be all by any means
