Newcastle’s star youngster Adam Armstrong is 17 today, and it seems that Alan Pardew has seen the huge potential in this local lad, and wants to sign him to a long term contract at Newcastle.
Adam Armstrong – turns 17 today
Adam has been on the bench in the last few games, but he has yet to make his first team debut – but we expect for that to change before the end of the season.
This is what Alan Pardew has told the local press today:
“I think he’s got a part to play somewhere along the line – he’s somebody we have high hopes for.” “Hopefully, we’ll secure his long-term future here in the next few days.”
Armstrong is compared to Wayne Rooney of Manchester United for a number of reasons – one is that his style of play is very much like the Red Devils number 10, he has a build resembling that of Wayne, and he is also prodigious at a young age – as Wayne was at Everton – and Wayne is also Adam’s favorite player.
Adam has been a standout for the England U17 side and the Newcastle U21 side this season, and he’s forced himself onto the Newcastle bench.
And with Newcastle fans needing good news these days from anywhere they can find it – it would be great if Adam makes his debut on Wednesday night against Tottenham, and fans can see just how great this lad can become on Tyneside.
And Adam has been left out of the U21 game tonight against Leicester City – so maybe the manager plans to give the lad his debut at the age 17 years and three days – on Wednesday night.
If we see Adam make his debut and Newcastle win – heaven forbid if Adam should score the winning goal – we’ll actually have something big to celebrate for a change.
We hope to see that happen – and yes we’re dreaming again. 😀
Howay The Lads!!
