Shane Ferguson showed again last night what an excellent crosser of a ball he is, and he had several efforts that were almost perfect deliveries last night, and after 15 minutes he put one on the head of Papiss Cisse, but the Senegal striker somehow managed to head straight at the goalkeeper.
Shane Ferguson in action last night – another good game
There’s no doubt that Shane has a wonderful left foot, and the Newcastle manager today chose an odd phrase to describe just how good that left foot is.
Here’s what Alan said in the local press today:
“Shane has one of those left feet you find now and again – you could peel oranges with that left foot.” “He hit three fantastic balls in the game.”
“I am a big admirer of him. I like the way he plays the game. He is progressive, a forward-thinking player.” “He wants to constantly attack and he has a big future at this club.”
Sammy Ameobi, Gabby Obertan and Shane Ferguson all impressed the manager last night, and we now have to hope that all three keep coming through and challenge for a first team position this season.
And we can add Adam Campbell to those three, as the Newcastle manager has said today the local striker is already making a good claim for a first team position.
This all sounds very good to us.
