Newcastle’s New Wayne Rooney Disappointed At Derby Defeat

16-year-old England U17 International Adam Armstrong will turn 17 next Monday, and he is making rapid progress in the Newcastle U21 side, and he has been on the bench  for the first team in the last two games, including the humiliating 3-0 defeat by Sunderland last Saturday.

Adam Armstrong – in England’s colors

Adam is a regular now for the Newcastle U21 side, and in his first games at the U21 level he scored five goals.

He made his debut for the Newcastle U18 side in August of 2012, when he was just 15 years old, and he could be the most promising youngster we’ve had on Newcastle’s books for many years.

Adam is a local Newcastle boy, and he had this to say today to the Shields Gazette:

“It was a disappointing result,” “We could have got something out of the game.” “I thought the goal would come, but it didn’t, and it’s obviously disappointing.”

“It’s a shame.” “Being a Geordie lad, it’s disappointing. But we’ve got to look to the next game now.”

Armstrong is highly gifted and he plays in the number 10 position, and the lad is very creative and he can also score goals.

His idol is Wayne Rooney, and he has the same build and ability to score goals as Wayne has – and Rooney is now playing extremely well for Manchester United.

The good news is that Yoan Gouffran will be fit for the game at Chelsea on Saturday, so it could be that Adam is not on the bench for that game,  but we do expect him to be in the squad traveling to London.

We’d love to see Adam make his debut for the Newcastle first team before the end of the season.

    As our season is pretty much over, we should be bringing Armstrong and the other youth players into the team.

    What’s happened to Bigi?

    Earnest from last topic – fair enough – it was just that originally it sounded like you just cancelled your DD. If you informed the box office then everything should be fine.

    Why the question mark ?

    Gooduns can be spotted early you know

    Jackie Milburn spotted Gazza at 15

    Too much cynicism and “know it all clever dicks” these days for my liking
