Newcastle Youngster On Fire On Loan


Newcastle’s Scottish U21 International Brad Inman is doing well on loan at Crewe Alexandra, and after being out for a while with an ankle injury, Brad returned last weekend, and scored against Bury on Friday night in the 2-2 draw.

Brad Inman – doing well at Crew Alexandra

Brad won the Wor Jackie award back in 2010, and the award is given 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 during the 1940s and 1950s.

Last Monday Brad, who was born in Adelaide, Australia, scored his second goal of the Easter weekend, as Crewe Alexandra beat Preston North End 1-0 on Monday, and they are currently lying in 12th place in League One.

In 19 appearances for Crewe, Brad now has 8 goals, which is not a bad return, and he’s on loan through the end of the season.

It’s going to be interesting to see what Alan Pardew does with some of his youngsters this summer, since a number of them are now at the stage where they have to break into the first team squad at Newcastle, or risk being allowed to leave Newcastle.

Brad turned 21 last December, and along with other youngsters like James Tavernier and Mehdi Abeid, it remains to be seen whether they will have a future on Tyneside, once Alan Pardew has another look at them in pre-season.

Brad has played 9 times for the Scotland U19 side and twice for the U21 side, and he qualifies to play for Scotland through his mother, who is Scottish.  B rad  grew up in Redwood Park, Adelaide and started playing football at the age of just 6, and he’s the youngest of four children, and he joined Newcastle in 2006 when he was 14 years old.

Crewe will play in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final against Southend at Wembley next Sunday, and Crewe will be hoping the young Newcastle striker is in his best goal-scoring form.

It will be interesting to see if Brad is still at Newcastle come September.

What do you think?

    I know the lad is doing well in league 1, doesn’t mean that hes ready for premier league, I would send him back out on loan preferably to a champsionship side next season ( sunderland or boro ), then we’ll see how the lad does in a harder league 😉

    Ed you loan them out again. Just because they are 21 doesn’t make them ready for the PL.

    …it is only a problem in terms of registration and another loan deal for alot of our youngsters turning 21 will solve that.

    Yeah send this lad , Sammy and Shane out again next season along with Abeid and Vuckic quite simply none of them have played enough games but Shane Ferguson at the moment would be miles better than Obertan or Jonas on the wings he has more assists this season than the 2 of them combined for the last 3 !!!Plus he tracks back and works hard

    Don’t think Tavernier is going to make it so he will be sold along with Gosling

    Also why has Amalfitino not even been sent out on loan?

    @Leazes end

    He is 23 I know Pardew said he would take a while to get used to the English league but come on we could have at least tried him in some of the games we have played surely?!

    His brother was a late bloomer he did not get good till about 25 or 26 so maybe he will turn into a player but its still a waste of a space in the squad if he cant even get a look in in our current predicament…. Could also be that he is actually quite good but Pardew is too stubborn to give him a chance as well

    Santon,

    I think Tavernier will stay for a while yet, he just signed a 3 yr deal in july.

    I have to admit what I have seen of him, I can’t see him becoming a top class prem league fullback. Although he is only 21. Time is on his side to improve.

    Tavernier looks decent going forward but he is miles away from even Santon and Haidara’s level

    He should be sent out on loan again for another season as I thought he could take over Simpson but he is actually worse than him and thats saying something

    I see Fergie has extended his loan at Birmingham. He is doing well there.

    I think this lad has a bright future, not sure if it will be at NUFC but one of the best youngings at the club without a shadow of a doubt.

    I’d say thats the last we might see of Fergie – I dont know what kind of work he would need doing to get him to a level where he can play PREM… he just too weak and is far too easily knocked off the ball… did you see his free-kick during the weekend? Holy sh1t it was quality.

    Santon,

    He has did well when loaned out and that convinced Pardew to hand him a new deal. Is he loaned out at the moment? Championship would be a big test for him I’d think. Could possibly make or break him with NUFC

    Tavernier won’t make it at Newcastle now, I very much doubt Fergie will ether. Both of them should have been on loan at championship level last season for the full season. Fergie is doing okay at Birmingham, but not doing anything to suggest he will be at a level that we would be looking for next season.

    Inman has always looked like the pick of the bunch, and going to Crewe will bring him on leaps and bounds thanks to the way they help develop and bring youngsters through. The problem is it could be a year to late for him. Also, with him playing centre mid, that is the area we are strongest in, in terms of numbers and quality.

    Out of our youngsters who have come through the academy, Campbell and Streete have the best chance, probably followed by Satko, but these kids need time starting games, and should be playing at a decent championship club, or a club with a reputation for developing youngsters all year next year.

    Ichrisho,

    I’v never seen it. Where can I find it?

    He has done ok when fielded for us, he is just lacking prem experience. We should never of fielded these young lads this season especially during our barron runs but it’s all we had. He will be a much better player for his loan spell, it will do his confidence the world of good. He’s got a quality left foot on him.

    @Toon

    Don’t actually think he is on loan sure he is in the Europa squad is he not?

    I think he was one of the players that Pardew thought could make the step up to save us a few bob but its not really worked out like that who knows he may come good in the future

    Ferguson could potentially come good for us I know people say he is lightweight etc but the Championship is as physical a league as you can get he is about the same height as Cabaye!!Just give him the ball in dangerous areas see what he can do!His free kick last week was unreal and he also got 2 assists from a corner and a cross in the same game!

    Lilongwe,

    Agree about Tavernier, I’v seen nothing to suggest he is going to become an NUFC regular.

    Out of them all, I’d like to see Fergie come through for us. I suppose that all depends on what he is like on his return.

    Inman has been largely deployed as a right or left winger which makes his goals haul even more impressive.

    He has an eye for a pass too so it would be interesting to see how many assists he has / chance creating passes.

    A long way to go but he could be a player – definitely a prospect

    Prodify – I only saw it on League Show on BBC… I think thats on the iplayer isnt it? His assist for the other goal was also super-good… tell you what that right winger for Birmingham: Redmond is absolutely awesome…

    Prodigy,

    Don’t get me wrong, I would like to see all our youngsters come through to the level required, but I just don’t think we have the staff/strategy to bring them through. We wait too long to loan players out, and we haven’t forged ties with strong clubs who could help them develop. Our coaching staff is highly questionable, Carver went from coaching me at a junior level to being Bobby’s Assistant in the space of 3 years. As much as he was a top bloke, I’m not sold on his ability to coach technique at this level. Stone is another who I’m not sure what he offers. Beardsley had fall outs with several youngsters a few years back over his coaching methods as well. For me backroom staff needs a big over haul if Ashley is to realise his dream of bringing through talent regularly.

    Good Call Lilongwe – Carver was also a manager in the MLS.. wasnt he? I think we need to get a coach in… Chris Houghton would be just the right man if we hadnt have made him manager… he seems to be moving up and up – would you take him back?

    Belfast – is that you? I was worried. Apparently your Tweetbury account is defunct so I feared the worst.

    As for robin – he is none other than billy/bob/ted so apart from apologising to him about the bedroom tax thing because its not appropriate I shall address him no more. Its not appropriate btw because the council don’t realise his sister is his wife so they don’t know he has a spare room ok ok sorry couldn’t resist 😀
