Newcastle’s Australian center-back Curtis Good is on loan through the end of the season at Dundee United, and that’s good for the 20 year-old who can get some first team games in and hopefully improve through the end of the season in Scotland.
Curtis Good in action yesterday – Conor Newton is in the background
Curtis joined us eighteen months ago from Melbourne Heart for £400K, and he was highly recommended, and we are hoping he can make the grade on Tyneside.
Dundee United are 5th top of the Scottish Premier League, but Celtic are 21 points ahead of second placed Aberdeen, and with Rangers still making their way back to the Scottish Premier League, there is no competition for Celtic right now, and it’s a one team league.
Dundee United met St. Mirren in the Scottish Cup yesterday, and his Newcastle team-mates Conor Newton and Adam Campbell played for St. Mirren in their 2-1 win.
Good played the whole game and made his home debut for the Tannadice club, and was solid at the back according to reports of the game.
Conor Newton started on the right wing, but Adam Campbell was only a sub, and eventually came on for Newton in the final five minutes of the game.
Our other loan players missed out – with Jonas Gutierrez out with a calf injury as Norwich held Manchester City 0-0 at Carrow Road, and Shane Ferguson wasn’t in the squad as Birmingham won 2-0 at Charlton in the Championship – so we’re not sure if Shane is out injured at the moment.
Ferguson has played 20 times for Birmingham so far, in his season long loan deal.
Rotherham’s match at Colchester was also postponed, so both James Tavernier or Haris Vuckic didn’t play over the weekend.
