Youngster As Good As Chamberlain, Noble and Shelvey On Debut


Newcastle fans were delighted to see North Shields youngster Adam Campbell make his Premier League debut for Newcastle yesterday, and Adam had a part in the goal as he put in a simple pass to Sylvain Marveaux, who then threaded the needle to find Papiss Cisse free in the box and Papiss did the rest – two minutes into added time.

Moussa looks to be strangling young Adam 😀

The lad who used to play for the famous Wallsend Boys Club made his St. James’ Park debut with the score tied at 1-1, but while he was just on the field for seven minutes, Papiss Cisse scored the dramatic winner for Newcastle.

Alan Pardew has given  a lot of youngsters their debuts and he had this to say about Adam after the game:

“Nobody loves putting young players on more than myself.” “I gave Oxlaide-Chamberlain his debut at 16 at Southampton.” “I did so with Mark Noble with West Ham at 16; Jonjo Shelvey was 16 at Charlton.”

“Adam Campbell was just as good on his debut.” “He deserved his little chance and he was involved in the goal. He passed the ball to Marveaux and it was a very simple pass.”

“In his mind it will be the greatest pass he’s ever played in his career.” “But he will play a lot better ones than that.” “I had no qualms,” “I know we haven’t got too many goalscorers in the squad.”

“He just might get a chance. He played his part.” “I don’t care if he’s protected.” “it is up to him how good he is.” “There is nothing to get carried away about.”  “He hasn’t smashed one in the top corner – but hopefully, he will.”

The England U17 International got a great welcome from the Geordie crowd, as might have been expected, and this youngster shows great promise and when interviewed on nufcTV he said he wants to be like Andy Carroll, but he doesn’t want to leave Newcastle.

Now there’s a local lad talking!

    Hopefully when we’re fully safe in the league we can give him some games and bleed him in a bit. Of course we might need him before then.

    Depending on how many strikers we get in the summer we should really loan him out. 18s a much better age to do it than 20-21 like fergie and sammy

    I’m leaving the other thread now, starting to feel like a kid whose parents are getting divorced.

    Pardews so stupid that when i pointed out a dead pigeon to him he looked up!
    And jespers so old his national insurance number is 1!!!

    Gotta say Adam Campbell makes all the right noise’s, like the little Carroll dig! Hope he keeps his head down and keeps grafting away, hopefully a loan spell will do him good

    Speaking of catchy I’m guessing he hasn’t been on since the Swansea game? Funny that! Almost as funny as beefman claiming he was a positive poster followed by 2 days of pardew bashing, including slagging him off for hypothetical situations!i!!
    Bout time findus recalled beefman think the lads been contaminated!

    Jesper
    Hmmm not sure about the injury argument at all mate, tiote didn’t miss many games apart from ACON and cabs really didn’t miss that many games either 5-6 maybe? Taylor was out yes but Willo played well last season and was part of a solid defence
    This season we didn’t field a consitant starting 11 til January, last season was a completely different scenario

    Hope he’s givin some sort of chance only time will tell if he is good enough though. Havent seen enough of him to be honest i know he’s got e decent record in the reserves. What i do know in a local boy who loves NUFC will always give a 110% that mixed with great ability could prove to be great! Here’s hoping so HWTL!

    Winny….Those are my thoughts on him too. Seems to have some talent, but I’ve only seen little bits and mostly at reserve level. Let’s hope he comes along.

    Tads…Haven’t seen Catchy lately, funny indeed. It is an odd way to support a team, don’t involve yourself in the good bits and just wallow in the misery…each to their own.

    Ibiza @31 on last post…what I called a cheap shot was stating this (again again again):

    ‘Jesper the fact that results have improved as much as they have since Jan suggests that not buying in the Summer was a reason for poor form in the first half of the season rather than an “excuse’

    How does this add up? How can you make this an argument? If we start loosing games does that mean baying players in January are at fault?

    If you used that argumentation and wrote it like that as an response to one of my post I would call it a cheap shot without any hesitating!

    Ibiza,
    Didn’t get to see it as Im offshore, I was watching the BBC football live scores in between an episode of Breaking bad so luckily didnt even see us going 1-0 down, cracking result though, and what ever people say about Pards thats four Prem wins out of six and should have had at least one, two or three points out of the two we lost and there has been some good football as well.

    Jesper…I think it goes back to it being one of the reasons, not the only one.

    There will usually be more than one reason something is working out as it is, I think all he was trying to say is without changing too much as far as Pardews tactics are concerned we’re now picking up wins, whereas we weren’t before the new players arrived.

    That doesn’t mean Pardew was blameless for our poor showing earlier in the season, but I do honestly believe the turnaround does seem to show that if he had been backed in the summer, as requested at the time, we’d have fared a lot better than we did. To complete that thought, if they had strengthened in the summer, we would only be talking about Pardews short comings 😉

    I think the issue you’re having with Tequila comes down to you think he relies too much on lack of incoming players and lots of injuries and you discount that a little too easily. Truth is, there is some middle ground in there, well I think so at least.

    Jesper,
    I can’t be bothered to look through previous post’s but looking at that last one are you suggesting that our change in form is nothing to do with the influx of new players.

    Jail…So that’s a no on the hike then?

    Where are you at the minute then? Us going 1-0 was completely against the run of play imo, but that happens. Was impressed that our heads didn’t drop and we came back. For me we certainly looked the better team and it’s no easy feat to break down the Stoke defense…it was hard for us to get anything happening within their box, so I’m really happy with the 3 points. I agree on your assessment of our current form, ffs we’re 4th in the form league…shame they don’t give out silverware in the form league.

    I think we should loan the young lad to Preston, i mean just look at some of the players they have had there over recent years and how they’ve developed.

    Andy Carroll,
    Danny Welbeck
    David Beckham

    They have got rid of task master Westley now and will surely be in a promotion push next season – I think it would do Adam a world of good.

    Thoughts?

    tads…can’t really remeber, but think Tiote missed at least 14 PL games last season and Cabs missed a month or so around January/February (maybe 4 games in that period).

    Tiote was away at ACON in that period.

    The defense didn’t change less last season than this one. It has been the same defense has it not (besides Raylor), but Santon has played every game more or less.

    The difference is performance which I has started all along. Performance has been down and there has been a lot of complacency from both players and manager.

    If anyone has the time and know where to find the data it could be fun to see how many games players has missed last season compared to this on!

    ahhh i see everyone is in a good mood today…. gmorning all… i missed our first goal, due to going outside to punch a wall, when my boy runs out yelling, ” they scored, daddy!” needless to say i thought stoke had again, and immediatley opened another beer (though i was holding a full one already)… then went inside, and noted we had… when cisse got the winner… well, i had a few more…

    one thing, maybe its been discussed,.. anyone know the last time we scored on a corner?

    but a great win, three more points, onward and upward!

    Jesper,
    I really dont get your point having re read Tequilas repost, if we start losing do we blame buying players ? Well we havent started losing so that would whole heartedly prove that the poor run of form before January was down to having a threadbare squad that injuries further decimated.
