Newcastle Youngster Sent Out On One Month Loan


Very promising 18-year-old Adam Campbell has joined Carlisle United for a month’s loan (at least),  and could make his debut in Saturday’s home game with Coventry City.

Adam Campbell – top Newcastle youngster sent out on loan

Carlisle play in League One which is England’s third tier of football, and it will be interesting to see if the North Shields youngster can bang in those goals for Carlisle.

Newcastle are short of strikers at the moment, but have still agreed to the short-term move.

The England Under-20 International stands just 5′ 6″ tall, so that’s one inch shorter than the world’s best player – Barcelona’s Lionel Messi – and Adam’s a bundle of energy and has great skills, and the knack of putting the ball into the back of the net.

Adam has played 5 times for the Newcastle first team, and became Newcastle’s youngest ever player in Europe, beating Andy Carroll’s record about a year ago at Atromitos, in the Europa League – it was in fact on August 23rd last year.

Newcastle have very high hopes of Campbell, and we’ll see how he does at Carlisle for a month.

    Would’ve preferred it if he went to st mirren instead, if those rumours were true. Much better level than league bloody 1.

    repost
    Although the transfer window hasn’t been half as exciting as we would have liked as fans, the negativity on this blog is astounding.
    If Pardew picks what is our strongest team and drops anyone who is playing poorly I do think we’re a match for anyone. Big ‘IF’ though on the Pardew matter

    repost: missed the boat was typing far too long

    Like most of you i have been pretty negative about almost everything nufc related this summer. The main problem for me has been pardew not leaving and the Kinnear debarcle was totally unnecessary as well tbh. Lack of signings and seemingly a lack of ambition have just built up our frustration further.

    I am trying to look at things in a positive light though and there are some positives.

    1. Ashley has brought in a DoF (although an awful choice) the role means there is more accountability to the staff for poor performance. Faye Downey has also been added to this with a few other switches of staff role. So underperformance this season will be easier to assign to specific staff failures. i.e if we have another shocker peoples heads will be under the axe. (Ashley covering his back (Protecting his assets))

    2. By enlarge we have a fitter (apparently) less injured squad bar Remy & Jonas than we did last season. If it stays like this at least if nothing else we will have consistency with our starting 11 (the reason we had a great start in our 5th placed finish season particularly in defence). Could the lack of signings help to improve the squad chemistry? (I know perhaps looking for the positives too hard)

    3. Players & Staff have points to prove and reputations at stake. The January signings will be looking to establish themselves at the club too. Pardew is under pressure to have a good season and will know a repeat of last season isnt an option. Younger players on one year deals know it’s now or never too. This could give them the focus they need to really push on.

    4. The world cup is around the corner and all of our international players will want to be there. If they are playing poorly they wont be, it’s as simple as that. This in its self should see more drive and determination injected into the team. Something we really lacked last year.

    5. On paper we really do have a good squad. All of us know it. Its one of the best we have had in such a long time. Its a big year for some of our players with points to prove and the world cup. Others have had injuries and need to stay fit and show what they can do for a full season.

    Pardew has a lot of options available to him. In terms of both formations we could realistically use and squad depth we are pretty good. We could go three/four/five at the back or three/four/five in midfield in different games. Granted we are limited up front but could play three is two were pushed wider in a 4-3-3.

    The quality of some of our players is exceptional. I think Ben Arfa, Anita, Sissoko and Marveaux can really kick on this season (in the right position & given the right instruction).

    For me we have no natural width in the team so i would love to see a formation of:

    Krul

    Debuchy Saylor/MYM Colo Santon

    Cabaye Tiote(def) / Sissoko Anita

    Marveaux/Gouffran Ben-arfa

    Cisse

    The wing backs can provide width to stretch the opposition defence creating the room for ben arfa nad marveaux to work with cisse to create the goals. Tiote could be used in the games where we need a bit of cover in front of the defence. The two CAM’s and ST would not have to track back and would not drop too deep allowing us to hit on the counter quickly.

    If all else fails we could always pack the defence and pump it long

    @ Jeff previous thread

    Totally agree mate. Ben Arfa is overrated in that he hasn’t managed to stay injury free and play a full consistant season for us.

    There’s no doubt he has the ability but perhaps he is just one of those players whose fitness and mentality will never let them be the player they ‘could be’

    On the other hand (what im hoping) is he can stay fit all season and be relieved of any defensive responsibility and told to pass and move more. If he was played as a no 10 and used his trickery more wiseley and less obviously (always cutting in to shoot left footed) i thinkk he could become ‘mercurial’.

    Its a big season for him i think

    If campbell was all that he wouldn’t be going to L1. I suspect another youngster on the market stall here. But it could mean another striker is nearing the door?

    Personally my strongest 11 as we stand now.
    Krul
    Debuchy, Colo, Mbwia, Haidara.
    Cabaye, Sissoko.
    Ben Arfa.
    Remy Santon.
    Cisse.

    It will be interesting to see how campbell does as he hasn’t really been given a crack in our first team. In a season (last year) where we were having real issues scoring goals i thought we would have given him more of a chance.

    I don’t see much use of the 1 month loan either. I think he either stays and gets used in and around our 1st team or goes out for at least 6months if not the full season.

    I think rainrix is right too. I think st Mirren would have been a better shout tbh. I also wonder why we havent tried to get him to a championship team. Maybe his physique? Im sure someone in the champ would have gladly taken a punt on him.

    The reason our youngsters don’t go to better leagues on loan is because most simply aren’t good enough. Hopefully Campbell will be different, but given how impressively awful our club is at bringing youngsters through, I doubt it.

    CJ, I think that’s a very optimistic post, but misguided. We do not have a really good squad, and most of our players are overrated – eg Santon ( cant defend, as I have maintained from day 1 , and was hammered for it) . We have defenders who cant defend ( Debuchy ….and mbiwa doesnt look like he likes heading and is very casual ) …others who are not used right ( Sissoko ) etc etc ….and a manager who cant seem to get them to attack and “fretten” the opposition. Its not good….if we can get a winger or two in , or a striker, it will help loads as Pardew is a 442 man all day long. He is being given players he doesn’t like because they suit the clubs purchasing strategy. Its a serious mess.

    @8 personally agree with the back 4 but I have no idea where santon would go except as sub. Gouffran still has a point to prove but I would put him up there.

    Remy will prove a Godsend however, once fit. Other positives are Colo, Krul, fitness coach, Sissoko and er , Remy again. Also Cisse, if we can service him right . A fine striker overall.

    @10 – for me if a lad is aiming for a PL starting place you give him some serious time against proper competition. That means give him halves against cup opponents, last 20 mins as main striker in games already sewn up. That won’t happen with us I know, but L1 is virtually limbo for someone aiming for first team. He can’t be good enough.

    Surely we would not have sent him out on loan knowing Remy is injured and only having Cisse and Strolla as recognised strikers without knowing something was going to happen on the striker front??

    Munster i agree with a lot of what you are saying but i have been negative all summer and fancied a change.

    I do think we have a good team though. Santon debuchy and MYM are good players. Yes they have weaknesses but when have we ever had a good defence? I posted the other day we were competing in the champs league with bramble obrien griffin and bernard!?

    I think a lot of us have just been completely demoralised by last season and rightly so. It was the most uninspiring load of garbage i have ever watched.

    I think we have issues with players on the wings that have the opposite foot 3 of our 4 starting 11 wide players (typically under pardew) are having to cut in onto their preffered foot.

    I think our players are only ‘overrated’ because they were so poor last season. I think either way this season will give us a lot of answers. regarding owner, management, players etc.

    @ pokat I know what you mean but I do like Santon but his defending can be suspect at times he is better going forward and would have more of an idea when we don’t have the ball my thinking would be a more effective version of Jonas. Goofy of the bench could cover all 3 forward positions also his pace late on could have an impact.

    Its true that if your wide mans preferred foot is inside, that’s where he will invariably cut in and thus the entire forward line is hemmed in, thus very few crossed goals.

    hi all i write the odd article for whatculture.com and recently wrote one about 10 players premier league teams should be looking at. Check it out, im not sure why we are never linked to this type of player. Surely it fits our ‘model’ (which seems to be changing to sign anyone between the ages of 27-29 who probably wont join us)

    http://whatculture.com/sport/10-wonderkids-premier-league-clubs-should-be-looking-to-buy.php

    I had added a lot of links to youtube which the editor removed so some of it may look wierdly written but the essence of the article is there.

    I would reccomend checking out some youtubes of them though. Especially Zakaria Bakkali! unbelievable

    The fact we only want to send him on loan for a month shows no confidence in bringing in another striker IMO.

    NUFC fans have been mugged off by Ashley again and he will be pocketing the TV & Wonga money. I really hope his helicopter crashes and ironically it is because of a swarm of Magpies

    Great news!

    Now what do we have in the striker department?

    Remy – not fit
    Shola – been on international duty
    Gouffran – available at the moment

    That’s it – what a way to start a season!

    Where’s Kinnear in all this and just what is he doing to address the need for new players?

    If he did go to Belgium, did he come back or is he wandering around Bruges or somewhere, lost and without his cater?

    It’s about time Ashley got a grip and asked just what the hell Kinnear’s actually brought to the party – apart from an on loan striker who’s injured!

    So on the day when we understand that Remy could miss the first month of the season Necastle let they third healthy striker to go on loan for a month.

    Basically I’m glad about Campbell but not when the team leave only with Gouffy, Cisse and… uhm… Shola. And ofcourse why on League 1? Isn’t enough teams in Championship or even SPL… St. Miren or something.

    Don’t see the point in getting upset about it any more lads. We have an owner with zero ambition, zero footballing nouse and gives zero f***s about what we think. I don’t even think he enjoys it any more.

    We have a few good players, not great – good but are quite overrated and a manager that doesn’t / can’t get them playing modern attractive football even though the players put at his disposal are hand picked for this very purpose by Carr and co.

    In short, we were very nearly relegated last season and probably deserved to go down IMO we were truly awful at times. I for 1 hav seen no reason to expect this to have changed in the last 3 months, and from what I have seen nothing has! Can’t wait for city!

Probably ezekiel (check him out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xV0mrSexK9E), Ben yedder i thought we would have looked at since pardew tells us we are very present in the ferench market, Neilton why not? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvBbshEHmxM , Bruno i think we could definitely sign and Bakkali who knows that would be a serious coup.

    To be fair Jermain Defoe and Beckham started by going on loan to Ligue One clubs aged 19 in Bournemouth and Preston, both went on to have decent careers! Personally I’ve never seen anything to warrant thinking campbells the next big thing , and ive watched him for the reserves too! Great energy and that but i’ll honestly say the 2 players for reserves that looked the business were Vuckic and Nile Ranger (shame he never applied himself)

    There’s a lot of deluded people within our club. The name of the game is save every penny we can. The beginning of last season was a thought of give the young lads a run out in Europe, forgetting they aren’t good enough. This season knowing we don’t have Europe MA gambling on we don’t need as big of a squad.
    I don’t know what the future will hold under Mashley.
