A young Newcastle side did well last night against a strong Sheffield Wednesday side, to get a 1-0 win with an excellent goal from 20 year-old new signing Ayoze Perez, who seems to be settling in well at Newcastle – and his first goal for the club was the difference between the sides.
Ayoze Perez – scored good goal last night
After the game manager Alan Pardew was pleased with the performance in what was a close game:
“It was a tough one,” “We brought a very young side.” “We only got off the plane two days ago, and it was a great effort. We really put in a fantastic commitment.”
“It was a good night for us. We beat a very strong team.” “We just used the guys that didn’t New Zealand. The two guys that didn’t come – Gabriel Obertan and Cheick Tiote – were excellent. That’s good for us.”
“We had a really strong work ethic and a third clean sheet.” “We made a lot of changes. I’m really pleased with that.”
Gabby Obertan may have been excellent last night at Hillsborough, but he still has no future at Newcastle, and he will be leaving the club before the summer transfer window runs out on Monday, September 1st.
And in this busy pre-season Newcastle are at the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany this weekend, and play Malaga on Saturday and hosts of the tournament, Schalke 04 the following day.
We hope to see a number of our new players like Remy Cabella and Daryl Janmaat in those two games, and returning players Tim Krul and Moussa Sissoko from World Cup duty in Brazil may also participate.
