Newcastle’s new signing Facundo Ferreyra was pressed into action yesterday only hours after his loan signing was announced by the club, and he should see some playing time in our final two friendlies – at Huddersfield Town tomorrow night at then against Real Sociedad on Sunday at St. James’ Park.
Facundo Ferreyra – made debut yesterday – cheer up its not that bad
Facundo came on in the second half of the game yesterday against Schalke, and he looked lively enough during the game.
This is what he has said today in the Chronicle:
“I like the Premier League, and when I knew this club was interested it was very impressive. So that’s why I chose this club.¨
“I know Newcastle United is one of the important clubs in England, and they have a really nice stadium and big players at this club, so that’s good.”
In yesterday’s game Facundo challenged for the ball and Remy Cabella picked the up the loose ball went straight in on goal and slammed the ball into the back of the net.
Newcastle fans still have to see our new right back Daryl Janmaat in action, after he was signed from Feyenoord, with Vurnon Anita, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and young Lubo Satka playing in that position so far in pre-season.
But we should see Daryl in the next two pre-season games, and he’ll probably make an appearance in both of those games, at Huddersfield tomorrow night, and at home to Real Sociedad on Sunday – if he is to start against Manchester City a week on Sunday.
And we’d also like to see Rolando Aarons start against Real Sociedad, and he’s surely earned his place with some very good games for Newcastle in pre-season, including yesterday, when he made the first goal and scored the second against Schalke.
Alan Pardew must give the youngsters their chance when they have worked for it – and deserve it.
