Motherwell Manager So Impressed With Newcastle Youngsters


St Mirren found out just how good some of Newcastle’s youngsters are last season, when Newcastle-born players Paul Dummett and Conor Newton played so well for the Scottish side  on loan, and helped them win the Scottish Communities League Cup, and the two of them got some rave reviews.

Stuart McCall

Stuart McCall – impressed by our youngsters

Motherwell manager Stuart McCall saw Paul Dummett, Haris Vuckic, Adam Campbell and James Tavernier all put in good performances last night at Fir Park, as Newcastle rather easily won that game 4-2, and we’re not surprised Stuart is impressed with what he saw.

And McCall is definitely keen on 18 year-old local striker Adam Campbell, who come on for the last 30 minutes of the game, in place of goalscorer Yoan Gouffran and looked very sharp indeed.

This is what Stuart said after the game:

“I did speak to Alan Pardew about some of his lads. He told me some of them are going to the Championship. He told me if there was any of the others that I saw and was interested in, I was to stay in touch.”

“The little lad Campbell who came on up front was quick and I’d like to get a get a quick wide man in who can play left and right.” “We are still trying to search for that. “Whether there is enough left in the kitty or if we can get the right one in remains to be seen. I don’t just want to bring someone for the sake of it.”

“It might be a younger one from the Premiership who comes in for six months on loan” “St Mirren did that last season with the lads Conor Newton and Paul Dummett from Newcastle.”

“We’ve got no out-and-out pace anymore since Chris Humphrey left so ideally I would like a wide player in.”

There will be no shortage of clubs after some of our youngsters this summer, but it’s Alan Pardew’s job to decide who is ready now for the Newcastle first team.

And on last night’s performance alone, Paul Dummett, Haris Vuckic, James Tavernier and Adam Campbell could be staying on Tyneside, at least through January.

Haris scored one and made one, James Tavernier had an assist with a fantastic through ball from the right back position that split the Motherwell defense wide open, and Paul Dummett put in an excellent left-wing cross in the second half for Marveaux to tap the ball home for our fourth goal.

Paul looked very solid at left back last night, and Campbell, the England U20 International striker, looked what he is – a top young goalscorer in the making, and showed some tremendous talent and speed.

    If they want Cabaye – why not give it ago with Rooney. Yeah wages would be a problem but just think of the shirt sales – make Wonga’s day

    Think the move might rejuvenate him and is still an upgrade on Shola

    i agree ben3arfa

    if we sign bent it is further proof pardew is extremely tactically niave.

    pathetic scum on this blog like toonarmydowns, maggot, tsunki and jail for cashlee all just think “cool striker” without considering how he would even attempt to form a cohesive unit with cisse. and why would he switch from villa bench to our bench and a lower wage

    He’s 30 in February.

    Can’t help but think it’s just a quick fix?

    Surely there is better man.

    Where mad if we pay more than 2.5-3 mil I think. And Even then I’d rather not.

    Bent is a huge gamble on form from a few seasons ago.

    Recent and current form is a better indication.

    This is all down to Pardew having warm fuzzy memories of Bent from years ago and the egotistical ex Manager of the Year thinking he’s a miracle worker.

    Bent is just Cisse without the stunning spectacular goals.
    Bent is nearly 30, extremely injury prone, lost his pace, high wages and poor attitude. With dumb and dumber he must be nailed on to sign!!

    Was so impressed with Vuksic last night but you just know he’s made of glass. However, with Faye Downey we may just be on to something good for a change.

    Prodigy- I am quite open to Bent joining us. Has a decent record and good back up to cisse. With that said we still need another attacker who can play up wide or in behind the main striker

    He’s going to be on a 3/4 year deal and will be taking up a squad place and sucking cash out of the club if the gamble fails.
    If he couldn’t get in that Villa team … it really worries me about his attitude and form. Then he’s a ex-Mackem.

    No thanks.

    Think people like Jeff need to be realistic
    Ashley isn’t going to buy two top end strikers
    Bent could cover for Cisse in some games and would be a good impact substitute.
    Then possibly an upcoming striker like Giroud from Arsenal would be good

    Some of the young guns are not good enough this was realised by Jan and the lack ne quality we had in depth . I don’t see them as making the grade in our first team and tho Ashley might like to keep them as cheap options for the first team but that’s about saving him spending which is what we actually should be doing now

    Lads,

    If Pardew had a choice between Remy or Bent, who do you think he would choose?

    Surely Remy for the quality and his age?

    Surely you can’t be happy about it though?

    All that dosh we have to play with because of the new TV rights.

    Can’t say im overjoyed. Shola’s replacement maybe.

    i would rather see 5/6 years out of campbell now then keep him in reserves or loaned out, if he burns out move him on if he fails then he fails any scenario from him is better than signing journeyman bent

    ”I’m the manager of this football club and I’ll make sure I manage it as I’ve always done at all my clubs, with our foot firmly planted forward and trying to take the game to other teams and trying to play an exciting brand of football.”

    Is that all the other clubs you’ve been sacked from Alan?

    Delusional or what!. This is the guy who closed up shop at 1-0 up at home v Reading with 45 mins left!

    Doesnt Bent just do exactly the same thing as Cisse, surely if Pardew has a blue print for the team i.e. 4-3-3 then he just doesnt fit in as first choice CF.
    He also doesnt fit into 4-4-2, so how is he going to fit into the blue print.
    All this talk of De Jong someone please show me how he fits in?

    Does Pardew have a blue print at all???

    not trying to be funny just want someone to show me a structure pardew could be working to.
