Tough Tie For Newcastle’s Top Youngsters


Newcastle will play Chelsea FC in the FA Youth Cup quarter finals, after the strong London side beat Cardiff City 2-0 on Tuesday.

Adam Armstrong – 17 year-old budding star on Tyneside

And Chelsea have had an excellent Youth program under owner Roman Abramovich, and they have reached the FA Youth Cup final four times since 2008, winning it outright in 2010 and 2012.

Newcastle had beaten Derby County on Sunday with a great goal from star youngster Adam Armstrong, but this will be a tough game for our youngsters, and hopefully there will a good crowd to cheer the lads on.

Newcastle have won the FA Youth Cup in 1962 and in 1985, and it’s time we won it again – hopefully this season.

The date and venue of the tie with Chelsea has yet to be announced by the club.

    Campbell does look a young Brian Clough as well as having an inordinately large head, which in tandem would surely suggest he’s most likely a tactical genius. It augers well.

    I can’t help but feel we are building up Armstrong too much. Is he destined to be the next Bjarni Gudjonson, or Paul Brayson? Much as I like the sound of the kid, It feels as though we are setting him up to fail.

    Important news item! Mike Ashley has decided to break his silence about his future plans for the club. And now without further fanfare some words of wisdom (and comfort) from our beloved leader Mike Ashley:
    My dear supporters. Your concerns have been striking me and causing me grievous injury and concern. Your fears are groundless. I plan to bring in a brilliant new DoF very soon now. He will be more fantastic than either the amazing Derek Llambias or the fabulous Joe Kinnear. He will be a kind of Incredible LambsEar if you know what I mean. He will put us on top of the league within 2 seasons. With my continued financial support to the tune of at least 10 pounds next season he will bring in at least 6 brilliant young players. We will also shed ourselves of some of the pathetic hangers on and other wankers in the club. Fear not oh beloved supporters a new day is dawning. Thank you. That is all.

    We may well get some new recruits in the summer??? but MA is winging it yet again to save wages and transfer fees, no way do they want to be involved in Europe next season, he is not giving a stuff about the fans, Mike looks after no1, he could well bring Del boy back, i think he only got released because of the 6 winter signings in last year that he got credited for Haha! wouldn’t be surprised all the same?!?!, then he comes back in and we bring four or five in and he is back in the good books, stretching it a bit there maybe, all i can say is MA`S purchase of NUFC has cheapened our brand but is making him richer, just like he does with every other company he takes over, the kid has got zero class, none whatsoever!!!!

    “What is undeniable is that the club is sinking into torpor and, in the absence of any visible leadership at boardroom level, the buck is stopping with Pardew.
    There are plenty of contenders for worst-run club in the Premier League — and Fulham have set that bar pretty high in recent weeks — but given all their advantages, Newcastle should be in line for some form of lifetime achievement award in the field.”

    Couldn’t post yesterday for some reason, something to do with a dodgy Chinese IP address,
    read an absolute cracker in the Chronicle comments section on the Express banning.
    ” We consider it extremely poor practice for a newspaper to print such an article without clarification from the club”

    ”You can now do so with purchase of our press Gold package”
    Beefman,
    Do I finally get an apology for being on the brunt of your somewhat insulting and aggressive posts for airing the views you seem to be increasingly posting yourself now it has become obvious the intentions of our greedy and unscrupulous owner.

    Just read that article talk about a depressingly accurate summing up!

    “There are plenty of contenders for worst-run club in the Premier League — and Fulham have set that bar pretty high in recent weeks — but given all their advantages, Newcastle should be in line for some form of lifetime achievement award in the field.
    Magnificently supported, from a region that has consistently produced some of the best footballers in Europe, they contrive, year on year, to find ever more humiliating ways to fail or implode. No small success is ever built on, no decision so smart that it cannot be quickly undermined.

    Losing Pardew now, or even at the end of the season, would be another mis-step for a club that marches with its shoelaces tied together.”

    Yes Pardew is definitely the glue that holds this dysfunction club together!

    …without him we would no doubt be the laughing stock of the PL and the football would probably be appalling!

    Lovely goal by Cabaye.

    He deserves to be playing at the highest level. Top man.

    And he appreciates the opportunity we gave him as a sort of football finishing school.

    Hope other potential recruits take notice that moving to Newcastle is not the end of their careers but could be the springboard to better things for them.

    Yeh, it shows we can have players come to us and build their career, not ideal as we’d obviously rather have them all the time but i’d rather have a player for 2 years then they move on than not at all.

    Another paper bites the dust. All gutter press morons anyway. Still no sympathy. Yes, nufc is a little bit too eager to ban press for things, but Newspapers fill themselves with unsubstantiated bollox or sensationalist cack all the time. It is about time they paid the price imo.

    As JFA pointed out…..
    “You can now do so with purchase of our press Gold package”
    There’s only one way NUFC want people to pay

    Funny how he hasn’t gone after the incredibly sensationalist football (formally sports)direct news.com……

    TDS @ 28

    I know it sounds improbable with probably the worst English manager in the Premiership but yes Cabaye improved as have many others. Colo is a far superior defender now than before. Notwithstanding some poor displays recently I’d say that Ben Arfa has improved too. Old Willo is certainly better than before. I think Debuchy will be vastly improved within the next 12 months. Tiote is still top draw but not sure about some of the others. Marveaux and Obertan have hadly changed.

    Yeah but sd.com isn’t a real news site, it is his propaganda machine which no one takes seriously anyway 😀

    welsh

    i am for a while. Ed replied to my e-mail, and it seems i am not in any trouble at all. He sees all the back biting on here, but i think he just accepts tensions are high due to how sh1t nufc are as a club at the moment.
