Young Center-Back Already A Swedish International – Newcastle Interested?

10:13 am, Tuesday, July 16th, 2013 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 288 Comments

With Newcastle being linked with 27 year-old Porto center-back Rolando a few days ago, we ‘ve looked at some young center-backs who could be good buys right now for Newcastle.

Alexander Milosevic

Alexander Milosevic – 21 year-old Swedish center-back of Serbian heritage

This is another article in our series of looking at some good young players who Newcastle may be wanting to sign now. or some time in the future, but we have no evidence that Newcastle are currently interested in any of these players.

Alexander Milosevic turned 21 in January, but he has already played for all the Swedish Youth sides, and has one appearance for the full National side.

Alexander was born in the Stockholm area of Rissne, and he played for Swedish club Vasalunds IF, before joining AIK two years ago, and he is a powerfully built  6’3″ center back.

Alexander is of Serbian heritage, with his father Goran immigrating from Serbia, and his mother being Swedish with some Finnish roots.

Alexander has played over 50 times for Swedish club AIK, and he has been watched by Arsenal, Celtic and Liverpool, and Arsenal were interested in signing him two years ago before  he finally moved to Stockholm club AIK.

Last year German club Werder Bremen were said to be interested in signing this youngster.

Last season Alexander broke his foot and missed some of the season, and Erik Hamrén, the Swedish manager, said in January that the 21 year-old would have been part of the senior squad for friendlies with Qatar and Bahrain, had he not been out injured.

The 21 year-old can also play at full-back, and he is valued on transfermarkt.com at around €1M, although he’s probably worth more than that.

But for that money he could be a decent buy for Newcastle, and given time to come through the ranks, with Coloccini, Steven Taylor and Yanga-Mbiwa fighting it out next season for the two center-back berths on Tyneside.

Watch Milosevic score a 40 yard goal.

    He clearly plays in a league with absolutely terrible keeping. I guarantee I could have saved that goal and I’m a kid. A tall one though haha one of the tallest in the class.

  • 2 Ben3arfa // Jul 16, 2013 at 10:16 AM

    I appreciate you taking your time to write these scouting articles Ed but its truly depressing knowing we wont sign any of these players. So perhaps give the idea a miss from now on?

  • 5 Ibizatoon // Jul 16, 2013 at 10:21 AM

    Jesper…”Derek” is now an ironic slang word in Newcastle for a deal, seeing how good Del boy was at pulling off deals.

    So then lads, what’s the Derek?

  • 6 viv // Jul 16, 2013 at 10:24 AM

    Its not all bad news, Shola, Gosling and Williamson, look to be leaving so thats three more to join Perch and Simpson on their bikes. Free up some wages and bring in some proper players.

  • 7 geordie157 // Jul 16, 2013 at 10:24 AM

    well he’s good on FM13. thats all i know about him.

    If we sign a centre back can it be Harry Maguire from Sheff Utd, we can even loan him out for this season. I’m surprised no-one has come in for him yet.

    Byram from Leeds would be perfect as a young RB signing, who can also play right wing.

  • 8 Bring Back Laurent Robert // Jul 16, 2013 at 10:24 AM

    I don’t know of many 16 year olds that go out on loan for 3 or 4 years mate. There’s a balance between young players getting competitive football and getting coaching from us with our better players and ‘superior’ coaching facilities.

    Every player is different. It’s down to the club to judge the right time to send them out on loan. I don’t think they should go out on loan too often.

    We’ve got a squad of 26 over 21 players now, so clearly some of them will be sold or loaned out.

  • 18 Ibizatoon // Jul 16, 2013 at 10:30 AM

    Jesper…Just been busy working mate. Have had a few glances at the blog, but thought against it as it seems with nothing to talk about it, the only sport to be had is to rip each other to shreds…and whilst there is sun and fun to be had…I’ll pass :)

    How about you, summer treating you well?

    Anyone had any joy finding any links for the friendly tonight? Be a shame to miss all the work that I’m sure has gone on so far this summer….

  • 19 Ibizatoon // Jul 16, 2013 at 10:33 AM

    Markaccus…That’s the stuff right there….”No Derek” *Crowd Cheers*.

  • 20 Ibizatoon // Jul 16, 2013 at 10:34 AM

    I see we have a new fitness coach. That seems a positive, dare I say a step in the right direction?

    Is she highly rated? I know she worked with the English rugby team, but honestly, to me, that doesn’t mean much at all.

  • 21 ToonDarnSarf // Jul 16, 2013 at 10:34 AM

    A 21 year old CB sounds good. Higher priorities to strengthen in the team and we’ve got 4 players who can do a job in the PL.

  • 22 NUFCarter // Jul 16, 2013 at 10:37 AM

    This scouting thing is getting old and more boring by the story.

  • 27 jimmysmith // Jul 16, 2013 at 10:42 AM

    The English Rugby Team, good grief, that bunch of gin soaked cauliflower eared mugs wouldn’t even recognize if they were injured. It would be more appropriate for them to hire a vet to do that job, so if that’s the case it’s by no means a glowing resume. None the less, I suppose we’ll give her the benefit of whatever slim doubt there might be.

    You’ve clearly never seem the youngsters from man utd Chelsea or arsenal then
    They have constant loan periods what are they going to learn rotting in the reserve league exactly?

    In the beginning Joe created….

    Actually, might drop this Joe before I cross dangerous boundaries…

    I thought they were buying him? And surely this should be his break through season for NUFC.

  • 34 NUFCarter // Jul 16, 2013 at 10:52 AM

    We have got too much friendlies to worry about transfers. :-)

  • 35 ToonDarnSarf // Jul 16, 2013 at 10:56 AM

    TADS

    Some of them are out on loan and some of them aren’t. To be fair, our youngsters aren’t of the same class of theirs. It’s one thing haven’t a player out on loan in La Liga or a lower PL team, another thing having them out on loan in League One.

    I still don’t think there are many players who go out on loan for 3/4 seasons. That’s more than enough time to decide if they are good enough.

    I’d hardly say rotting in the reserves either. Some of the best youngsters will train with the first team regularly. There’s a hell of a lot that our youngsters can learn from training with internationals rather than League One plodders.

  • 36 jimmysmith // Jul 16, 2013 at 11:04 AM

    yes Ibiza, her methods well may be a little rustic, but perhaps as you point out, quite possibly for the best.

  • 37 toonarmydownsouth // Jul 16, 2013 at 11:06 AM

    TDS
    I don’t see your point about league 1 when did I say they should be in league 1? They shouldn’t

    But couldn’t disagree more with, you actually think they will gain more training with our first team than getting actual playing time in competitive matches? I’m sorry but can’t agree with that at all

    There are plenty of players that go on loan for 3 seasons mate, plenty
    How many players break realistically into the first team at 19!

  • 38 Markaccus // Jul 16, 2013 at 11:09 AM

    Joe K’s claimed to have given Joe Harvey a lot of help during his time at the club (both as a player and manager) as well as brining players in for him!

    Ed. You’ll see that Geoff Allen, a Manor Park lad probably two years below you, was at the talk in.

  • 44 toon kk // Jul 16, 2013 at 11:22 AM

    The days keep rolling by and still no signings. I can see us chancing next season with no first team player’s coming in. With a few out, MA will save on wages after all all he wants is profit.

  • 45 Markaccus // Jul 16, 2013 at 11:22 AM

    given the apparent lack of incoming transfers, I wouldn’t be surprised if our world-renowned DoF has realised he’s bitten off more than he can chew and doesn’t know what day it is let alone current players!

    …going away for a few weeks tomorrow.

    Could it be you are liking the new fitness coach because she is of the bikini girl persuasion? ;) lol

  • 48 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Jul 16, 2013 at 11:26 AM

    Okay gotta go for a while…later!!!

  • 49 Leeevo // Jul 16, 2013 at 11:27 AM

    I’m a big believer in the young lads going out on loan as much as possible myself – no training with the first team is quite as beneficial as actual match practice for a club, in my opinion. I think the vast majority of the young lads prefer getting games under their belts than turning out for the reserves each week.

    Integration into the first team squad is of course much more difficult during seasons like the one we suffered last year – it’s much less of a risk for the manager during spells when you’re winning games (from the bench when winning and playing well etc).

    Do you lads think any of our current crop will be good enough to cut it at Premier League level? I’m hopeful on Campbell, Bigi and possibly Vuckic if he can stay fit – not so sure about Sammy, Fergie, Newton etc as I feel like if these were good enough they’d have put more pressure on the established first teamers?

  • 50 onepeterb // Jul 16, 2013 at 11:27 AM

    Jesper…Not at all…just pleased to see them addressing an area of concern. Not that I know whether she is actually an improvement, but it’s not like our club is known for hiring people not up to the job ;)

    Would be awesome those 2 but numpty pards will probably stick with chief brown noser Saylor. If JFK was brought in to stop Pardew always playing his favourites no matter what, it wouldn’t be a bad thing.

    Does anyone know the name of the young Senegalese striker who did so well in the Olympics last year?

  • 62 Ibizatoon // Jul 16, 2013 at 11:42 AM

    Rotonda…Thought that was going to be a little love note there :)

    Thank you for that, seems to be a good move then. Last summer is making the lack of news this summer a little tricky. I still hold hope that they sort themselves out before it’s too late, but with each passing day I can’t help but think we’re in for more of the same. However, whilst I feel it would be beneficial to make our moves as early as possible, the window is open until Sept 1st for a reason, so there is still plenty of time…I suppose.

    How do you see this window working out?

  • 63 Markaccus // Jul 16, 2013 at 11:43 AM

    Wasnt it another player called moussa something?? I might have the wrong guy like.

    yes I think it was something like that. No doubt he’s on JFK’s radar !!

    Our fitness was shocking last season and I believe the main reason for so many injuries, so hopefully Faye can address that. Would be great to have 11 players with Andy Murray levels of fitness.

    Rotonda…Wasn’t it having to play all those extra EL games? :)

    As I said, seems to be a good move for the club, one that hopefully brings improvement, even if that is being able to last a 90 minute game of football. Wouldn’t that be something?

  • 69 Yohan Kebab // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:00 PM

    Fitness is key in most sports now. Once one person/team takes fitness to the next level all have to follow suit or be left behind.

    The fact that footballers aren’t fit enough to play 2, 90min games a week without complaining yet tennis players can play 3 or 4 matches sometimes up to 4 hours long a week puts them to shame

    Some of them weren’t good enough for the championship though. And if they are good enough for the championship and are still only good enough for the championship 3 years later, they’re never going to be good enough for us.

    They need a combination of first team football and training with top players and coaches. Each player is different.

  • 84 Rotonda heights // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:19 PM

    Moussa Konaté

    I knew it sounded similar to the other lad Kouyate.
    Yeah Kouyate will go to Southampton. They have a lot of money behind them now and a great coach.

    Spurs were in the Europa last season and this season and suggests their fitness levels are vastly superior as they didn’t get so may injuries, of which so many are through a lack of conditioning as in our case.

    Belfast… That has me thinking…surely it’s time to drop “not a cat in hells chance” and upgrade it with a new Kinnear themed example….thinking caps on…

    Rainrix…Maybe priority number 1 for the fitness coach will be, conserving energy. How you ask? Keep the bloody ball and stop whacking it down the other end of the pitch. Then again, maybe not.

  • 93 Ibizatoon // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:34 PM

    Oh yeah, I forgot we’re suppose to predict results…and starting line ups. Holidays are over people, back to work :)

    Not expecting a lot tbh, it’s the first pre-season friendly, after a weeks training (approx.), with a fair few 1st team players not attending. Do we know who has / is traveling for the game?

  • 94 jimmysmith // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:34 PM

    They probably think that with the addition of a schmick new conditioning coach they’ll be able to wheel Cisse out for the full 38 league games plus cup fixtures, rendering the need for additional strikers redundant.

  • 95 Ibizatoon // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:34 PM

    Mark…Decent.

  • 96 Belfast // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:37 PM

    All 0 of them lol

  • 97 DokToon // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:39 PM

    g’morning all…

    rain @ 77, funny stuff there…

    methinks ive found out nufc’s plan for this season… 34 draws, (as a result of hoofball, gottta play defensive when youre tied!), with 2 wins each vs cadriff and hull (sheer luck, cisse scores in the 20th min of added time) = 46 pts, = safe from relegation…

    MA pats pards and JoKe on the ass, “well done lads, great season!!!”

  • 98 Rotonda heights // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:40 PM

    Ibiza at 87

    You’re getting there lol!

  • 99 Ibizatoon // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:40 PM

    Belfast…Aye, I was thinking of flying over to catch the game, you know, want to be one of the first to see our new signings in action.

    They might get a sub appearance.

    “Pardew is bringing on nobody in place of…., Pardew said recently in an interview that this lad would be like a new signing, if only they could have got him over the line, but still, they expect big things from him and a successful campaign”

    “Nobody is failing to make an impact in this game, Pardew must be wondering whether Ashley will be angry at all that money being wasted on the new player”.

    Good old match days.

  • 100 markmac // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:41 PM

    Afternoon all, can anybody ITK fitness wise take just 2 mins to explain exactly what Faye Downey will do/be in charge of? and is simon tweddle still there? cheers

  • 101 rainrix // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:41 PM

    Ibiza… Honestly if she could covertly influence pardew like that then she could be our best recruit this summer. Soon he’ll be a dual operated puppet :)

  • 102 Markaccus // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:41 PM

    We could run a sweepstake. Which minute wilk vukic rupture a cuticle, or sprain his hair?

  • 103 Ibizatoon // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:44 PM

    Rotonda…It’s no laughing matter. If this club brings me down there will be hell to pay! :)

    Brace yourselves for fast paced attacking football lads!

    Dok…What’s up mate? That Texas sun starting to get to you? 34 draws? Excited doesn’t even begin to explain how that makes me feel :)

  • 104 Markaccus // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:45 PM

    Rainrix.

    Two hands up there? Pardew gets a double fisting?? Ewwwwwwww!

  • 105 rainrix // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:46 PM

    Dok… Like that thinking. A 300 style battle formation on the goal line would work wonders. Occasionally a small gap opens up in the line and anita sticks his head through and stabs an opposing player with a spear whilst screeching “FREEEDOOOOOMMMMM!!!!”

    Yeah we’ve pretty much sorted next seasons tactics out. :)

  • 106 Ibizatoon // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:47 PM

    Rainrix…Let’s see mate. I don’t care who pulls what strings, just want to see a collective improvement. Whilst not as fast or progressive as we’d have liked, there are some things being done. Okay, you got me, that is one thing that has been done :)

    Markaccus…Can I call dibs on him being injured during the warm up or perhaps getting off the bus?

  • 107 rainrix // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:50 PM

    Markaccus… Actually you’ll need 4 hands to operate puppet pardew. Its a quad fist, unfortunately for pards.

  • 108 jimmysmith // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:51 PM

    If Shola did leave, wouldn’t that literally decimate Pards game plan by 50%. I think it’s fair to say Sholas going to be donning the famous black and white stripes for another 7 years.

  • 109 Markaccus // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:52 PM

    Ibiza

    Thats kind of like betting on the 0 on roulette so i suppose you can. It is still onlu 90 to 1 though. Injury time is 00 and is also only 90-1

  • 110 Ibizatoon // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:52 PM

    Ah yes, the debate of how many fists Pardew requires…now I remember why this site is so addictive…I mean informative…what do I mean again?

  • 111 DokToon // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:55 PM

    rain, if we play that style, no need to sign any strikers, can let cisse go due to his wonga dispute, saving MA millions… i thjink a 7-4, maybe an 8-3 formation sounds right

    thats briilliant!!! :)

  • 112 Ibizatoon // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:55 PM

    Mark…You say that, but have you forgotten who we’re talking about here?

    Personally, I think one of the best purchases we could make this summer is a whole load of bubble wrap.

    Jimmy…I’m not sure if that is more a reflection on Pardew or the fact we have so few strikers. Love the stories that both Shola and Cisse are leaving this summer…Come on Campbell, this is your chance lad, don’t let us down! :)

  • 113 rainrix // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:57 PM

    Ibiza… Yeah nothings done fast and progressive here is it?. We shouldn’t have expected it really. Oh well at least its one thing thats done. Now we can get back to the striker hunt. Cant wait for the unveiling in august….. 2034 :)

  • 114 pawl250 // Jul 16, 2013 at 12:59 PM

  • 115 DokToon // Jul 16, 2013 at 1:00 PM

  • 116 Ibizatoon // Jul 16, 2013 at 1:05 PM

    Rainrix…There is no need to exaggerate for comedic effect where Newcastle is concerned. It will likely be by 2020 ;)

  • 117 Ibizatoon // Jul 16, 2013 at 1:06 PM

    pawl…I can picture JFK chatting to the team and saying some random name and all the players answering as they’re unsure who he is referring to.

    Good job he’s there to help sort things out really.

  • 118 toon kk // Jul 16, 2013 at 1:10 PM

    What alot of people forget half of our team are made up of championship players at best. Some so called bargains Arnt going to take us forward. Lets hope we don’t get to many injuries next season with our wafer thin of quality squad or we could repeat last season.
    We’re a big club with NO ambition running on luck. Sad really.

  • 119 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Jul 16, 2013 at 1:14 PM

    jesperfuglsang @115…

    Are we sure Kinnear knows who he is? Mmm, not so easy for him really – it’ll all hinge on which of his many super egos is prevailing at the time of the question.

    One thing for sure though, we all know what he is!

  • 128 toon kk // Jul 16, 2013 at 1:45 PM

    I would like to know what’s going on, on the training ground our best players are unable to string passes together, all this hoofball, unable to score from corners, we Leek more goals and terrible at creating service to strikers. We played probably the worst football in the premier league. Our manager makes pathetic decisions. A owner who has no ambition, so we have a wafer thin sqad. No wonder we were nearly relegated.
    What a mess!

  • 129 Jackel001 // Jul 16, 2013 at 1:56 PM

    Mackems confirm Giaccherini for 8.5 mil.. By far the best signing of the window (value). We seriously need to pull our fingers out!

  • 130 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Jul 16, 2013 at 2:01 PM

  • 131 toonarmydownsouth // Jul 16, 2013 at 2:12 PM

    Apparantly the gooners have a clause of first refusal over fabregas and are considering activating it!
    If they got cesc back + plus a few other high profile signings there after am i alone in thinking a cheeky £6-7 mil bid for arteta would be a great move???

  • 132 toonarmydownsouth // Jul 16, 2013 at 2:21 PM

    Is it any coincidence that John Tudor only started commenting frequently once JFK vanished on his hols and gave up the blog the day before JFK is due back at work………….

    I tell you what that Alderweirald sounds like a right nob. So he comes out and says ‘I don’t want to join a mid table team like Newcastle’

    Norwich have a bid accepted and he claims ‘I like the ambitions of the club’ fck off! Glad the move broke down, keep him as far away from the PL as possible.

  • 137 Jamiemac // Jul 16, 2013 at 2:25 PM

    tads

    No chance. Doubt we could afford our wages and doubt he’d move to a team like us. He could easily play for a team in champs league.

  • 138 Jamiemac // Jul 16, 2013 at 2:25 PM

  • 139 toonarmydownsouth // Jul 16, 2013 at 2:26 PM

    Markaccus
    Lol aye fair point!
    I’m thinking on the basis that tiote could be gone
    Then taking in to account that cabs fitness has been lacking since signing tbh (not a knock on his first seasons form) and clearly struggled last season
    Then say we signed De Jong not only would we have an outstanding bench but we could field any midfield combo of cabs/arteta/socks/Anita with De Jong/Marveux in the number 10 role!

    Now I’m slightly biased like but that has the potential of one of the best midfielder outside the top 3!!!

  • 140 the truth will out // Jul 16, 2013 at 2:27 PM

    I’m sure he did

    Just heard that a certain agent has been around a few times now and something is pencilled on for early next week.

    Not sure who is signing but could be out first move.

    I know is hugely vague but it’s all I have, will update if I hear more.

    A good striker and left sided player are top of my list.

    Get those in and anything else is just to add depth.

    I’d still like a few players with more fight though who don’t give up after 10 mins like this bunch.

  • 189 Transfer Sage // Jul 16, 2013 at 3:16 PM

    John

    No idea, sorry. Just that one agent has been there a few times, my mate said that usually means something is happening, more than an enquiry when the agent arrives for a meeting.

    Worth giving Campbell a go pre season but surely the lad needs a loan spell?

    So asking how Rooney and Campbell are similar isn’t talking football?

  • 204 Lilongwe Geordie // Jul 16, 2013 at 3:32 PM

    On Campbell, we either have to play him regularly, and I don’t mean 10 mins off the bench every other week or ship him out on loan. Boro are after a striker, and play decent football style wise, I doubt Shola will end up there, so why not let them have Campbell.

    As for comparing Campbell and Rooney, yes, Rooney was much more physically developed, but he is also a far better footballer…

    When did I say he shouldn’t start upfront tonight?
    I said he should start a few games pre season then go on loan

  • 207 John Tudor // Jul 16, 2013 at 3:32 PM

    don’t you read i said in friendlies 4-4-2 give him a go the management will make the team choices in p league and it was you who mentioned rooney and campbell similar

  • 208 John Tudor // Jul 16, 2013 at 3:35 PM

    well why loan him keep him play him what if no strikers come in and we rely on pardews new 2-3-2-3 formation

    I know what youre saying in regards to rooney and campbell.
    I aint 100% but i dont think he went on loan.
    Forget loaning him out and lets give him a chance.
    After all we wont know if hes good enough to play for us until he actually does .
    And i dont mean just 5 – 10 min cameos.
    I would take a loan to another prem club if we were signing some decent strikers but bent? Id rather try campbell

  • 213 toonarmydownsouth // Jul 16, 2013 at 3:39 PM

    JT
    I read just fine, which is why I know you never mentioned 442 or only friendlies
    I said let him start a few friendlies then get the lad on loan at which point you bought up Rooney, hence drawing the comparison

    Now do you wanna try discussing football or keep arguing over your imaginary posts?

  • 214 JFK junior // Jul 16, 2013 at 3:39 PM

  • 217 Lilongwe Geordie // Jul 16, 2013 at 3:43 PM

    Personally, I’d like to see Inman Vuckic and Campbell all start. Inman and Vuckic playing as attacking midfielders, supporting Campbell. Anita can link defence and attack, and have 2 hardworking midfielders, possibly Newton and Guti. Allow the full backs, Haidara and….. to provide width with the midfield covering. No point playing pre season with wingers if we haven’t got them to play with by the time the season starts.

  • 218 toonarmydownsouth // Jul 16, 2013 at 3:43 PM

    Which was a pointless statement to make as we’d both agreed that he should start tonight

    TADS,
    Supposedly, he has been training so far during pre season. I think he returned to fitness before the end of last season, but pointless rushing him in.

    Cavani just about to sign for PSG…. Pretty good strikeforce with Ibra.

    It is because by the time you have logged out, and logged BACK in as ‘TTWO’, too much time will pass??!

    I mean…who does that?!?!

  • 230 Lilongwe Geordie // Jul 16, 2013 at 3:50 PM

    JT,
    I’d happily keep Campbell if he is going to get sufficient football. That will depend on what business we do. If we brought in 1 striker and kept Shola, or 2 and lose Shola then Campbell, for his sake and ours in the future should go out on loan.

  • 231 clinath@ed // Jul 16, 2013 at 3:50 PM

    long who knows what the pardew kinnear ashley have in store if its minimal fresh recruits he stays till jan if remy ,bent,god forbid still stay till jan then loan him but loans tend to lead to releases imo

  • 234 JFK junior // Jul 16, 2013 at 3:55 PM

    John – You going to answer my question?!

    Or is “the truth out”??!

  • 235 Lilongwe Geordie // Jul 16, 2013 at 3:57 PM

    JT,
    Yeah, if no one comes in I don’t think we will have a choice but to keep him. If there is any truth in the Cisse stories again, he will have to stay. I like half season loans, but if we had options then I would prefer loaning them out until Jan, get them some game time and then if they are performing well enough give them a chance.

    I think Newton and Dummet will end up on loan, and then leave next summer at the end of their contracts.

  • 236 John Tudor // Jul 16, 2013 at 3:58 PM

    We spoke the other about Crewe & how they teach their kids to play the game properly. Personally i would like Campbell to go on loan to Crewe or another similar,do you have any preference as to where you would like him to go.

  • 241 JFK junior // Jul 16, 2013 at 4:02 PM

  • 245 Lilongwe Geordie // Jul 16, 2013 at 4:06 PM

    Nut meg,
    Yeah, I have suggested that we should have a more formal arrangement with Crewe in the past, would be excellent as a first taste for some of the 18 year olds coming out of the academy.

    Boro is an excellent option in my opinion to. Another team that regularly produces good youngsters and allows them to flourish without huge expectation.

    I think a season at Crewe, then a season at Boro (provided they stay in the Championship and don’t get relegated) would offer excellent progression.

    After that, sending players to learn from Zola at Watford would be of interest to me as well.

  • 246 John Tudor // Jul 16, 2013 at 4:06 PM

    @ 236 is dario still there or has he gone upstairs ,higher up into the board

  • 247 Lilongwe Geordie // Jul 16, 2013 at 4:10 PM

    JT,
    I think Newton is just going to find too much in front of him. At the minute he has to get past Sissoko, Tiote, Anita, Cabaye, and Bigi. It just doesn’t make sense to keep him. If anyone saw him at 17/18, he was a great player, and looked a top prospect, but too many years standing still have cost him.

    Dummet may get a chance this year, but we have Good, Streete, Satko, Mbabu who all have more promise then him coming through at centre back, and then Haidara and Santon at left back with Pardew already saying MYM will play that role to.

  • 248 Lilongwe Geordie // Jul 16, 2013 at 4:13 PM

    Dario Gradi is still at Crewe, but no longer the manager. He is now Director of Football, and Director of the Academy at Crewe

  • 249 nut meg // Jul 16, 2013 at 4:13 PM

    I had Boro,Crewe Forest & Ipswich in mind,Watford never entered my head but I would all in favor of that.

  • 250 John Tudor // Jul 16, 2013 at 4:13 PM

    could be but injuries seem to ravage our staff and if we have a glut of players vying for positions yes get them out on loan, but then you have pardew playing his out of form favourites

  • 251 Jamiemac // Jul 16, 2013 at 4:14 PM

    Anderlecht’s Cheickou Kouyate admits he wants to play abroad following reports of interest from Premier League clubs.

    The defender was linked with Newcastle United and Southampton at the end of last season, but Dynamo Kiev were also thought to be interested in signing the Senegal-born player.

    Arsenal was also mooted as a possible destination for Kouyate, 23, a year ago while Lyon and Marseilles are now thought be looking in his direction.

    Kouyate had already declared that he planned to leave Anderlecht before the end of last season, and he is not hiding the level of his ambitions.

    “We are all ambitious,” he said, “I want to move in my career. If I improve big clubs from abroad will come for me.

    “The story of Arsenal was true but nothing materialised, Arsene Wenger is a great coach and to show an interest in me was fantastic.

    “Newcastle could be great as well, but let’s wait and see.”

    All I know about this guy is that he is an absolute tank on fifa. Therefore we must buy him.

  • 252 Lilongwe Geordie // Jul 16, 2013 at 4:16 PM

    Nutmeg,
    Yeah, Forest and Ipswich wouldn’t be bad options as well. Although I am unsure how much the upheaval over the last couple of years at Forest has affected their structure.

    It is something that hopefully the club do sort out. I’d even be in favour of players going to Holland, Belgium, Portugal on loan. Somewhere that favours technique in training and play.

    Sorry for late reply had to get my motor to its MOT!
    Not saying your opinions are worthless at all just that we seemed to be arguing over a non entity

    Agree that if nobody comes in we should keep Campbell but if we bring a CF in them we will have cisse gouffran and a new CF so would rather see Campbell on loan instead of missing out on valuable playing time!

    As for injuries, I think Lilongwe is right and hopefully this new fitness coach will help solve the problem of the amount of niggling injuries our squad suffers and hopefully the overall fitness of the team.
    And if reports are right this fitness coach is a pardew appointment and hopefully he’s learning from a few mistakes!
