Newcastle Youngster Participates In England U20 Draw


It looked like England were going to get off to a win against Iraq in their first game in Group E  of the U20 World Cup taking place in Turkey on Sunday night.

Gael Bigirimana – came on after 89 minutes

And England were two goals up from Conor Coady in the 41st and then Luke Williams made it two after 52 minutes, before Iraq came back with two goals in the last 17 minutes, and their equalizer came three minutes into added time, to embarrass England.

This was another young England set-back after the debacle in Israel earlier this month wehn we were beaten 1-0, and that cost the England U21 manager Stuart Pearce his job.

Newcastle’s Gael Bigirimana just made it into the game on Sunday night, when he came on as a sub  on 89 minutes.

In the other group E game, Chile beat Egypt 2-1 to go top of the group, and England’s next game is against Chile on Wednesday night – and England need a win.

Maybe Gael will start that game?

Teams:

England U20: Johnstone, Lascelles, Potts, Flanagan, Dier, Coady, Ward-Prowse, Lundstram (Reach 69), Barkley (Bigirimana 89), Kane, Williams (Long 69).
Subs not used: George Long, Cole, Stones, Thorpe, Pritchard, Garbutt, Ripley.

Iraq U20: Hameed, Dhurgham Ismail (Abdul-Hussein 69), Nadhim, Jabbar Arebat, Adnan, Natiq (Kamil 66), Fayez, Salman, Jawad Kadhim Shukor 84), Tareq, Abdulraheem.
Subs not used: Ajail, Jumaah, Jabbar Shwkan, Qasim, Ihab Kadhim, Hozan Ismael, Yaseen

    Our best youngster IMO. Not seen enough of Campbell and I reckon Sammy is probably the best of the rest. Streete has potential as well like.

    He’s trying to dig himself out of that hole isn’t he?

    I do hope the next time we hear from him, it’s about a signing!

    My minimum transfer targets would be:

    Striker with pace that will help not hinder Cisse

    2 wingers that can actually cross a ball

    Young CB to replace Collo in a year or two.

    That is provided no one leaves. Then bring in a few youngsters and ship out the deadwood. That is the minimum I would expect this window

    I cant get over the fact that manx and toondarnsarf seem to think Poyet wouldnt be an upgrade on Pardew.

    Its laughable it really is.

    stuart if you looked at my main point at toonarfa is pardews record early on in his career at reading then west ham was better than poyets has been so far now in another 8 years poyet has done that then fair enough but the point is hes so against pardew and then says poyets the best thing since sliced bread!?

    We are. And perhaps even more attractive than Everton. But there are many other clubs in the world more attractive than us. Yes, we may have been 20th in the football rich list, but that doesn’t take into account the costs. There are many clubs regularly in the CL from other leagues who are below us in the rich list.

    But Newcastle sacking Pardew and appointing Poyet is a bit like an ok looking bloke dumping his ok girlfriend that he’s had for 3 years for a bit of a fling with the South American looker that he’s spoken to a couple of times. Great if it works out, but there’s also a good chance that he’ll be back on the market and down in the dumps in a few months…

    I agree, not sure on the two wingers, I think arfa and gouf are good enough with marvaux and Jonas as cover.

    Anyone else think cisse will flourish In a cf role behind a striker?

    Im not having a brighton fan come and pose as a newcastle fan and put a negative opinion across about Poyet to sway peoples views about him as a manager.

    I get that hes upset you Potts but he wants a club with ambition, that is what this whole argument with brighton is about.

    Get over it.

    We’ll always be looking to strengthen the youth team, so that’s good. But we’re ok for CBs as long as everyone stays. Willo isn’t amazing but he’s solid and ok as 4th choice, I won’t object if Good or Street can take his place, but I’m happy with the defenders we have generally.

    Will be much better with a pre-season behind Debuchy and MYM.

    But it’s all pretty irrelevant mate. Pardew will be managed for a few months at least, so why don’t we all just get behind the team for the next few months too? If they’re not doing well in December, he’ll be gone.

    “…The precise reason for the hearing has not been explained by Brighton but it is clear the manager had angered club directors in some way. Asked whether he could tell the BBC what had happened he said: “No.” “

    no i dont but you say its about ambition?
    so building a new 20,000 seater stadium when ya in league1 isn’t ambitious enough for him then
    and starting to build a team thats ready for its means which is the sensible thing to do under them circumstances his ego has chucked him out of a job that really could have made him but yeah thats just what we need isn’t it?
    its like lauddrup saying swansea need to spend 200 million what planet is he living on?

    No one is saying Poyet is the ideal man for NUFC, but at the moment he is probably our most realistic option for a manager that plays decent football and can get the best out of our players.

    Pardew isn’t the worst manager in the world, but giving him players like Ben Arfa & Cabaye is pointless . Pardew would probably do well with a team like Stoke but we should aspire to be much more than that.

    Pardew works nearly all week on defending… so where are the hours of training needed to actually retain possession and focus on structure and offensively pushing forward?

    It’s not there and it is blatantly obvious to see that we are set up in the hope we can nick something out of nothing. This was happening when we came 5th as well.

    On top of sitting back after going ahead and the rest of the negative aspects to Pardew’s reign.

    Unacceptable.

    In an ideal world would I want Poyet? Probably not, but he’d at least try to win a game not cling on desperately for a point and then tell you how we’ve battled to a great draw. Give over, Pardew.

    So in our current abysmal coaching and management predicament, if no other coaches would come in, I’d try out Poyet over Pardew. Can’t do much worse than those record shockers the silver tongued one was setting last season can he? Oh, the dross.

    Its because he kicked up a fuss about the budget and got into arguments with the club because of the disagreement.

    If Ashley can offer him ambition on a reasonable budget im sure Gus has just purely pushed his own way out the club making him cheaper for Ashley to pick up as he still has a couple years left on his contract.

    I believe Ashleys been in contact with Poyet for a while now and has promised him a job at Newcastle if he does force his way out.

    Makes perfect sense.

    But I just don’t get it…maybe you can explain it to me…

    You know Pardew is our manager now, you know that there are no indications that Pardew is going to be sacked too. So why the speculation?

    Pardew is far from a rubbish manager, and his record is not poor, given the circumstances he’s managed in, it’s just uninspiring.

    I urge you to watch any game from season previous, we played stunning football, played man u off the pitch. This season too many injuries and other factors killed it but you still saw it in the 4 3 loss to man u and before the team lost its head that arsenal game too.

    pappa but you say players like arfa n cabeye he hasn’t had a full season out of arfa n when he did have a full one out of cabeye and most of our good players we finished 5th and i still think people forget that was our second season back in the prem with a pretty new team!
    plus arfa’s said he wants to stay if he was that unhappy with the way pardew wants to play he’d surely be the 1st player that would want out?

    ” like Ben Arfa & Cabaye ”
    – face it – who have not performed well this season, by their own standards.

    I am not going to just blame the manager; he got five new players in exchange for our top goal scorer – leaving us Cisse as our main attacking threat; we had no plan B when Loric Remy did not turn up.
    Frankly, we were Lucky to get away with it, AP gets dealt some shit cards and has to make the most of it.

    Poyet wouldn’t be anybody’s first choice but would be an upgrade on Pardew for sure.He has already showed in two games against the toon he out thought and outplayed Pardew who is a relic and will never win anything
