Good News – Top Youngster Coming Back For Newcastle


We were wondering what the status of top young center back Remie Streete was – as the youngster turned 18 earlier this month – and it’s good news on the lad who has been injured for the last nine months.

Remie Streete – fit again after nine months out with ankle injury

It seems the 18 year-old is now fit to return to full training on Monday, and the 6’2″ youngster, the son of former Wolves player Floyd Streete, is certainly one for the future at Newcastle.

The South Shields youngster has been out with an ankle injury for nine months, and is one of the brightest young prospects at Newcastle United, along with striker Adam Campbell.

Remie won the inaugural Jack Hixon award last year, named in memory of the scout who discovered Alan Shearer, and earlier this year was the recipient of the Wor Jackie Award.

That’s given out to the best Newcastle U18 player each year, and is named after the great number 9 – Ashington-born Jackie Milburn – who scored 200 goals for Newcastle United in his career.

It seems that Streete had been so impressive playing for both the Newcastle U18s and Reserve teams last season, that Alan Pardew was going to have him train with the first team, but his ankle injury stopped that.

But when he is fit again, we could see this lad quickly join the first team squad – and who knows – he could even get into the first team 18 squad before the end of the season.

The youngster was born in South Shields, and he reminds us a lot of Steven Taylor, when the Whitley Bay lad was the same age, and of course Steven went on to captain the England U21 side.

We think Remie has the same potential as Steven had, and don’t be surprised if this lad is making his debut in the Newcastle first team within a year or so.

We’ll continue to watch out for Remie, as he makes progress through the ranks at Newcastle, but now is a great opportunity for the 18 year-old to show what he’s made of – since we currently have only three experienced center-backs – and Steven Taylor is out until February.

    This lad is a TANK.
    I saw him in a recent picture, and he is a wide mo fo.
    And he’s of the tackling old school kind. Watch him take center stage at CB at some point soon.

    quick skim through the previous thread solidified my decision not to partake in the blog today

    the pessimists still trying to prove the same points (fair enough, i’m in there too i suppose) and the optimists calling anyone with any form of dissent less of fans or mackems

    anyway, good think Streete’s back. we might need him soon.

    and APBWA from last thread

    love your speculative transfer list. should have at least gotten Guidetti and Mbiwa in the summer. oh well.

    Looking forward to Monday against a strong Wigan side. Think this’ll again, as Swansea and Stoke proved, to be more a battle of the managers’ tactical-nous. hope alan’s on his game. HTL

    Dannyo. I rate our chances I think Wigan have a few players out as well including ex Newcastle superstar Gary Caldwell. I am hoping for an early goal to relax everyone building up to a 4 nil rout.
    Seriously I do think we should win tomorrow.

    I think based on last season we should have won plenty of games, but we just havent.
    AP got sacked at WH for having the worst losing streak in 30 years, and he got fired from Charlton after a poor streak aswell.
    I can’t see him not getting out of this, but it’ll take some faith and he’ll have to take the heaviest pressure of his life.
    Caldwell played well when we lost to them i recall? Not so much otherwise in the season…

    Dannyo , other than Europe season has been a big downer.
    It`s not just blind faith though. Caldwell and Ramis have been ever presents for Wigan this season so its bound to have an effect, Kone and Long have scored less combined than Ba. I think we should have enough .
    Changing manager is no garuntee of improvement it`s just as likely to get worse as better. Everyone will have a much clearer view as to how the season will pan out after the trans window closes.

    I think it’s well proven if you look back that Europe has an effect on teams, especially those who don’t add to the squad in paralell with accessing Europe.
    It’s odd tho that Europe has given us so many injuries, considering that Euro refs don’t allow for much physicality as in the english game.
    So all in all, EL has had it’s sideeffects.
    Also, having an ever present back 4 last season did us wonders, just as it has done for Stoke and just as it helps Wigan too.
    Seeing how little we played youngsters last season and looking at the few injuries we had, outside those in midfield and Saylor, we fared far better due to a very consistant side and working towards one competition mainly.

    I think what would help massivly would be getting in a continental coach to help ease the transition between EL and PL. Some experience in Europe is severly lacking in our staff.

    agree with the continental coach. someone brought that up a few days ago. I think both carver and pardew are far, far too direct, as their records indicate

    Dannyo I think that`s a fair summing up of last season. The big difference for from last season is the lack of clean sheets. They are the difference between wins and draws when your not scoring much. We were very lucky with injuries last season and that certainly played a big part in the settled defence//clean sheets.
    Perhaps the EL has not helped with injuries but a lot seem to have come while players are away for internationals. Col Krul Cabaye twice. Whatever the reason reinforcements in defence are a must for Jan.

    AP has never striken me as the type that asks for help.
    He himself has talked about his arrogance, and usually with arrogance comes stubborness.
    The latter having been shown with his lineups and formations in the PL.

    It’s not like we can’t afford it. We’re making money on a monthly basis now, hopefully there’s talks of adding to the coaching staff. Sooner rather than later.

    Ye, reinforcement are a must, deffo! Atleast 3, maybe 4 players. CB, FB, CM(attacking) and a Striker.

    Surprised Tav hasn’t seen more gametime yet, he’s done a few mistakes in Europe, but many only learn by doing, i think he could do well at CB tbh. Very comfy on the ball.

    Dannyo, not sure about Tav not really seen enough of him in games to make a judgement. But if he could not get a game when Simmo was out, it looks like Pards does not rate him. Young home grown players always get bigged up to be amazing but very few make it.

    lee1892 @20/21.
    you have appeared from nowhere slagging off people using a derogatory term as they are not discussing football.
    Seems exactly the same as someone making a post slagging off people without mentioning football.
    You clearly therefore have fallen within the scope of your own offensive term.
    Mong is such an offensive term -it is an abbreviation of “mongol” or “mongoloid” a term used years ago -a condition which is now known as “Downs Syndrome”.
    You clearly are an offensive fellow -please do everyone a favour and clear off.

    This criticism of Pardew is well placed but harsh. He is the one person at the club taking on the greatest added workload that comes with Europa participation and it is showing in our performances on the pitch.

    Injuries, suspension, and poor form just compound the problem. He’s under enormous pressure and because of his achievements with the club surely deserves and actually needs to be supported. Under the the circumstances vitriolic criticism seems knee jerk, short sighted and on occasion just mean spirited.

    I’m not entirely confident he’ll succeed, but believe he should be given every opportunity to do so.

    I’m a 100% certain that QPR will not go down. I also think they will give us two tough game and get 4 points out of us. Teams like Reading, Villa, Norwich and Soton will be fighting relegation. We’ll be in that battle if we keep playing Williamson and Simpson.
