England Become Interested In Paul Dummett


There is news today that England have been monitoring the very good performances of our young left-back (or center-back) Paul Dummett, who has come through like a steam train at Newcastle this season, after an extremely successful loan spell at St. Mirren last season, and the 22 year-old is now pushing Davide Santon very hard for that left back starting position.

Paul Dummett – needs more first team games to become even better

And every time we have seen Paul play in the Newcastle first team, both in pre-season and this season, he has looked good, and he has 4 appearances do far for his home town club.

But we think if he was given a run in the Newcastle first team,  he would very quickly become an even better player.

Newcastle will offer the Kenton youngster a new three-year deal very soon, and since he has never represented Wales at full International level, although he has played twice for the Wales U21 side, he is still eligible to play for the full England side.

And  if he can continue to improve and eventually become a regular in the Newcastle side,  then maybe he could even become an English International – but there’s a number of ifs there.

But England officials must have been impressed with that they have seen from the Newcastle-born youngster, for them to contact the club and ask the Magpies to keep them informed about Paul.

The reason Paul qualifies for Wales is that his grandfather is Welsh:

“I’m English, my grandad’s Welsh, but Wales gave me an opportunity first and I’ve got family who are Welsh. I’m proud to play for them and as long as they keep picking me I’m happy to play for them.”

Steven Taylor is likely to replace the suspended Yanga-Mbiwa on Sunday afternoon at the Stadium of Light, but we’d love to see Alan Pardew bring on Paul in the second half, so the Geordie lad gets his first taste of the local derby.

Comments welcome.

    be silly to choose england

    we have cole, then baines, then gibbs…..plenty players before him.

    but then again he might make the squad one day for a world cup which he probably wont with wales.

    No disrespect to any of our Welsh readers, but it does seem a shame when a talent like Giggs or Bale will miss out on a major tournament because Wales aren’t very good.

    Let Wales have Dummett (and we’ll throw in both Ameobis) and we’d like Bale and Ramsey please…

    You can only imagine how much difference giggs and bale wouldve made to England over the years. Bale in our england team now would make us genuine contenders. Such a shame.

    I’d like to see dummet get a few more games to see if he’s the real deal and if he is I’d offload santon. Not that I don’t rate him but if things are as tight as they apparently are at the club and we need to sell before buying, I’d much rather spend all of the money on a centre back.

    Hopefully we can start to produce a few more to class players in the next few years.

    I know it’s just been a good week with the odd glimpse before but no reason townsend can’t kick and and become a top player, seems to have everything…including a great shot with both feet,

    Are you sh***ing me? You think we can get to the semis in the next World Cup? I don’t care how much talent we’ve got coming through with the likes of Townsend, Barkley etc. the point is that we’re miles away from the quality of Spain, Brazil, Argentina, Germany and Italy. We’re about on a par with the likes of France and Portugal and we’re not too far ahead of several other teams in the WC.

    Hmmm…it’s a bit like talking about another football team…

    Wow, been offline a bit today, just found out Palace have sacked Holloway. That’s a shame, I quite like Holloway, good value for money in the entertainment stakes, however, I wouldn’t like to see him managing my club! Wonder where he will turn up next? Anyway, far too ambitious liking Dummett with England set up, hope he stays loyal to Wales, which he implies above. Lets get him established before we end up knocking him down for not fulfilling the targets that over-ambitious types set for him. Let him find and achieve his own standard first.

    Palace didn’t sack Holloway. Why do people always assume a manager has been sacked? Holloway told the chairman that he doesn’t think he’s up to it so they agreed together than he would go.

    Personally hope dummy chooses England as at least the lad has opportunities to play in the euros and world cups should he make the grade.
    Would love hernandez in January but can see him going to bigger fish than ourselves !!

    no reason we can’t make the semis…made the quarters at the euros and only lost on penalties…out played but as you said earlier…even on the most important stat of goals.

    We are not likely to reach semi’s and really doubt we’d win but you never know in knock out football….just takes a townsend, a rooney, a sturridge, a wellbe..pushing it there…to have a good game and that can see you through a round.

    Also people worry about the heat, well depends where you play..some groups will be north, others south…ones tropical the other is like a mild europe.

    Well lads. Haven’t been on in a while… I’m slightly interested in Palace with Holloway quitting. Would Pards actually go there if offered the chance especially with JFK on board? I remember the rumour mill saying this maybe the case and here we are.

    I’m sure this has been done before, but I’ve been reminiscing of past glories. What’s everyone’s best 11 in our premiership era?
    Mine is:
    Given

    Venison. Woodgate. Albert. Enrique

    Solano. Beardsley. Lee. Ginola

    Shearer. Ferdinand

    Subs for good measure
    Krul
    Dabizas
    Gillespie
    Asprilla
    Speed

    Wonder how this team would fare today?

    i guess you never know the target until you find out who’s in our group…if we have an easier group then you’d expect to get out of it but if a tough one you can forgive them struggling.

    the key is to use this world cup to get a few kids/youngsters experience too. Need the balance though…too many kids in the squad and we get thrashed and the experience is bad…if we get just the right number we play ok and have the young lads learn from experienced players.

    From an Irish point of view I can certainly see England getting to the quarters but after that it depends on injuries/suspensions & luck. Things that always cost England. Don’t think the quality is there for the semis or to win it but deffo last 8

    i think that’s a fair assessment and pretty much what the FA will b expecting I think.

    Are you watching the man utd game? I heard the commentators talking about how the spanish media have been biging carrick up all week saying he is a very good player yet in england he gets mixed reviews.

    So when we praise all these ‘better teams’ with better players well they must think the same about some of ours too. There was a story in a catalan paper this week saying barca should be gettng wishire as a long term replacement for iniesta….so we have talent, just maybe we are always more easily impressed by foreign talent.

    Would definitely like to see a rebuilding programme with England. I know its not a great feeling not qualifying for a major event, But if it means down the line we actually win something then the sacrifice for a few year is worth while.

    Sorry for not responding earlier, had a bit of bother getting my little one to bed.

    I totally agree about Townsend. It was a bit the same carrol. All of a sudden someone who hasn’t really been touted about as a teenager bursts on to the scene and looks the real deal.

    I think the future is looking bright for England. Townsend, Walcott, oxlade, Barkley, smalling, ravel and those 2 young ones for Man U and west brom (I can’t remember their names).

    I just hope Newcastle can unearth one!!!

    i don’t think we need to sacrifice qualifying though. I think you let youngsters get experience at their clubs then play them when ready, can introduce them slowly, phasing out the older guys…doesn’t have to be drastic.

    Also we need to make sure they actually go away to under 21 tournaments and not sit in their clubs during pre season.

    I don’t see us winning a world cup or euro’s soon but we have got more talent around than the media want us to believe at times.

    I still think our youngsters should be the best with the prem league set up. We have less english players than germans in their league or spanish but what it should mean is the ones playing are very good and at the top and that we should also be exporting youngsters to other european countries to get experience in different set ups.

    M view always has been that if clubs invest in academies, which they do (my uncles grandson just got picked up by newcastle from sunderland, 8 years old and to get him to sign they pay a taxi to take him to and from every training and game, so clearly investing) then they will play these kids if they are good enough as the invested a lot of time and money in them…clubs dont buy for the sake of it it…except maybe chelsea haha.

    With the new TV money I really think the premier league should introduce a policy of at least 60% of tickets should be available for £12 or less.

    This way you would get more regulars and more youngsters going to games as well. When you consider most of a clubs income is from TV this wouldn’t really do that much harm to a clubs bank balance.

    I agree. It’s no surprise that Germany and Spain are the 2 main players now in Europe. However they also have the strongest leagues as they have mainly homegrown players competing.

    This new England set up with Ferdinand etc looks like they’re heading in the right direction.

    Talking of the England set up, would anybody else think that it may be no bad thing to bring back a ‘board of selectors’ type system for the squads? I’m not saying take the decision away from the manager completely, by all means include him, and let him have the right of veto.

    whether what they are doing will work or not its nice to see them finally doing something, can’t blame people if they have ideas and try things.

    G

    There’s no reason it couldn’t be brought in…if a club doesn’t like it, fine, go find another league to play in.

    You can’t blame the clubs, they want every penny possible and if they sell out at arsenal charging 40+ a ticket then they will.

    I had no idea there used to be a board of selectors. I was always under the impression the manager picked the team.

    How long ago was this?
