Newcastle’s High Profile Helps Players Get Call-Ups

Ayoze Perez – in action for Newcastle in pre-season

Ayoze has looked good in pre-season for the Magpies and the 21 year-old has made an excellent start to his Newcastle career,  and the winger/striker is looking for a starting position at Newcastle in his first season at the club.

Ayoze is in the Spanish U21 squad for European U-21 Championships qualifying matches which are away to Hungary on Thursday, 4th September and then at home to Austria the following  Tuesday, 9th September.

With Newcastle being a (very) high-profile club, any player who plays well at the club usually gets an International call up – and that happened to Jack Colback this week, when he was selected for Roy Hodgson’s full England squad for the very first time.

Rob Elliot is now an Ireland International goalkeeper and Paul Dummett has already represented Wales at left back, and the local lad got a call-up from them for the two week International break to start next week.

We look forward to Paul creating a good attacking partnership down the left wing with a certain called Gareth Bale, and we just  hope Gareth can lift his game a bit when playing with the talented Dummett. 😀

So there are some (big) advantages of signing on for Newcastle United – but don’t tell that to Loic Remy – who seems to have turned Newcastle  down for about the 9th time today – and that’s only since last January. 🙁

Maybe he doesn’t want to come here after all.

What do you think?

    Congrats to Ayoze.

    Maybe the Remy thing is a smokescreen, hopefully.

    Great news… the U21’s set up will give him some great coaching, he isn’t going to get that in our current set up.

    Ref the legality of downloading/streaming etc.
    It is certainly not a criminal offence to download copyright material, though it is a civil offence, and the copyright holder can take legal action through the civil courts if they have evidence that you have done so.
    The problem that the likes of Sky would have is actually getting evidence that you were infringing their copyright -just about impossible to do. They perhaps would have more success if the local bar was doing it – they would just have to go in to find out and perhaps make an example of them. Those facilitating the downloads might be pursued by Sky etc -but somebody would just set up another server. So as far as Joe public is concerned not much danger at all about being captured.

    I wouldn.t want Remy anywhere near the Toon now , yes he scored a few last season for us but who’s to say he doesn’t turn out to be another Cisse.. A flash in the pan…
    He has made it plain enough he does not want to be playing at the Cathedral in front of 52,000 fanatics every other week he would much rather pick up his Euro’s playing in front of 14 – 17,000… Says he wants to play for a club playing European footy well he got ZERO chance of that playing for the Blue Hoops with that bunch of over the hill has beens or never were’s…
    If he cant feel pride in pulling on that Black n White shirt then screw him and anyone else who is just in it for the money…
    Sign Jordan Rhodes or Danny Ings at least they would bust a gut in wearing the shirt ad score goals along the way….
