Adam Armstrong Could Be Back For Saturday

Adam Armstrong is one of the best youngsters we have at Newcastle at the moment, and he starred for the England U17 side last week as they won all their group games, and helped England qualify for the finals of the European U17 Championships to take place in Malta next month by scoring the first goal in the 2-1 win over Italy.

Adam Armstrong – scoring against Italy U17

Young goalkeeper Freddie Woodman, son of the Newcastle gatekeeping coach Andy, also  played in all three games and was also one of the England stars in those games.

This is what Adam has said in the local papers today about the Premier League, after making his debut at Fulham:

“The Premier League, although I only had a little taste, is so fast.”  “They are bigger and better players than I’ve ever faced, but there’s not much difference to playing international football.”

“You have to work out early what their strengths and weaknesses are ,and go off that and adapt your game to get the better of them.”

It will be interesting to see if Adam gets on the bench on Saturday against Manchester United, and we hope he does after that pitiful performance against Southampton on Saturday which was simply an unacceptable performance from a Newcastle United side.

Maybe Pardew should look to the future and try to give Adam a few appearances in the last few games of the season – and at least Adam is part of Newcastle’s futures.

After seeing some woeful performances from some Newcastle players over the last few weeks. that cannot be said for everybody in the Newcastle first team squad at the moment, and a big clear-out is expected in the summer, after a very disappointing year so far.

In our 13 league games this year we have only 4 wins and one draw – 13 points – and have scored only 9 goals and conceded 23. 🙁

In our first 13 games of last year we had five wins and a draw – 16 points – so we did better last year when we were struggling against relegation.

And while we know that Sunderland are really struggling with relegation this season, and we are doing a lot better than our local rivals who still have only 25 points, those figures are simply not good enough for Newcastle United.

Maybe Adam can cheer the fans up in the last few games, of what is turning out to be a disappointing season.

What do you think?

    Yep sadly selling Cabaye has had the knock on effect we all knew it would. Selling your best player can often bring to an end the belief in the rest of the squad and we don’t have the manager to restore it. The best thing we can do is start fresh and if you look at the players most of us think can leave we have a lot of work to do.

    From the back 4 we may lose Collo and Debuch though only Debuch would be missed. We should lose Taylor and Santon. Marv, Obertan and Gutti should all go. Ben Arfa may go because we dont have the manager to fit him in the team or motivate him. If he cannot be motivated fair enough that he go. Cisse to go. DeJong to go home. Shola to go. Jeez were gonna have half a team left at the end of this season.

    The atmosphere at St. James’s is like the prawn sandwich brigade comment from Roy keane all those years ago. What is is wrong with you real Geordies. I go every week with my son and I’m embarrassed by the lack of vocal support by the people at the ground. I lived in Sheffield for 12 years before moving to the toon.Wednesday was not as good as Celtic . Not many are but we have the best away support in the premier league having been all over the country with newcastle but at home it’s like watching paint dry. Regardless off what position we are in Ashley and all.St James should be like a couldron. It’s your fault it’s not an intimidating atmosphere. fcuk the reasons why. Shout and scream and support our team!!!

    Get a grip toon supporters. Football is you’re life if you’re posting on here and reading this like I do. Ask yourself when was the last time you started a chant or joined in? I know the football is poor but I’ve watched teams in the past where the day out was about the atmosphere. Not the performance. It is crap at the moment. Blame Ashley and Pardew if yo want but take those two names away and it is still newcastle united what is wrong with you all? I’m not a Tory but I still support the uk????
