Curtis Good Outstanding Against Sunderland


The Newcastle U21 side had a good 2-2 draw at the Stadium of Light on Monday, and Willie Donachie, the Reserve team manager has said there were a few outstanding performances from the lads.

Curtis Good was outstanding against Sunderland U21 side

Willie Donachie had this to say on the Newcastle web-site yesterday :

“It was a disrupted team; Yven had to move into midfield – and this is 15 minutes before the kick-off. So considering all that, it was a really good performance and it was very disappointing to let that goal in at the end.”

“That should lift them. I said before the game, if they’re not motivated for this then they won’t be motivated for anything. We shouldn’t have to do it for them and they responded pretty well.

“It was a good experience playing in front of a crowd, at a nice stadium, on a great pitch against good players – England under-21 internationals like Connor Wickham and so on.

“It’s a great experience for people like Curtis Good, who I thought was outstanding. They all did well but I thought Curtis and Brad were very good.

“But it was just disappointing not to win so late in the game.”

Newcastle were leading that game 2-1 but Sunderland scored in injury time to rob the side of an excellent win at Sunderland.

It’s good that Curtis is starting to play well, and he hasn’t made any Newcastle first team squads this season, but the lad is still only 19 years old and doesn’t turn 20 until the end of March.

And the Australian will be learning an awful  lot playing in the Newcastle U21 side, and we have some faith that Curtis  will start to come through the more the season progresses.

Good has played 9 times for the Australian U20 side, and it’s great to hear that he is playing well for the U21 side.

    On RDM
    The team’s recent performances and results have not been good enough and the owner and the board felt that a change was necessary now to keep the club moving in the right direction as we head into a vitally important part of the season.mmm

    Tads – if Ba is on his way, why not a swap deal?

    Sturridge and a bit of loot our way and Ba to Chelski – seems a reasonable deal to me lol

    Why do the Chelsea fans not wanting RDM to be sacked have any relevance to Newcastle fans wanting their manager to be sacked?

    Alan….I imagine two things. First is, it doesn’t seem to matter what any fans think and secondly to compare patience of fans.

    If a team who are a constant conteder for the league and won the champions league are happy to be out at the group stages and possibly finish a second season out of the top 3 to try and get some stability and try and build a squad rather than chop and change every season i dont see why we shouldn’t were still in europe and are mid table despite a poor run of form im sure things will pick up for us and dont see how sacking our manager will help achieve that

    Yet again you use a skill found rarely outside the spin doctors employed by governments.

    Was it RDM’s team? Did he lay all the foundations for the CL success? Did he guide Chelsea through the hardest part of the CL that being the group stages?

    No! So stop twisting everything to suit your opinion.

    Do Matteo was always going to be sacked

    The main reason he was sacked is because he is not guardiola which is who the owner wants.

    Also when you spend 80 million after winning the champions league you expect your side to be qualify from their group. It doesn’t look likely.

    Alan_Pard_Who….Spin doctor? Oh please, give yourself a rest mate. I’m not twisting anything. Did I need to credit everyone who played a part in their CL success to make it a credible point? Clearly others laid some ground work, but I do seem to remember they looked at him to deliver it to them, something no other manager had been able to do. My point is, for me, I think he should have been given more time, but hey, it’s not my call and not my club, just MY opinion.

    Is that better or am I still spinning?

    I get if fron the boards view im just making the point from the fans view where they were happy to give him time as they see sacking the manager as a backward step

    The craziest sacking for me was that Italian fella the sacked after winning the double in his first season,they sacked Wilkins bought Torres and blamed the manager,baffling.
