Over the last two or three years Sammy Ameobi has promised much at times, but he just hasn’t come through, and time is about up for the 22 year-old younger bother of former Newcastle veteran Shola Ameobi.
Sammy Ameobi – time almost up at Newcastle
And news that Alan Pardew has warned Sammy that he must improve quickly, if he is to save his Newcastle career.
In Shola Ameobi’s fourteen seasons in the first team one thing that was obvious he was very inconsistent and din;t make the most of his talents.
In one game Shola was great and in another he looked hopeless, and it seems that Sammy is not unlike his brother, and it’s difficult to know how Sammy will perform in any one game.
This is what Alan Pardew has said about the former England U21 International today:
“He comes on and changes the game a little bit. He runs up the pitch, takes players on and that is what we want.”
“Sammy is a player who has unbelievable talent and we have been waiting and waiting for him to deliver something. ” “I warned him this week I am running out of time with him, and he is running out of chances.”
Sammy has been capped 5 times for the England U21 side and has played 40 times for the Newcastle first team with two goals
Sammy’s contract runs out next June, and it is likely his contract will not be renewed, and he could be the second Ameobi to leave the club within a year, after Shola left over the summer.
Unless Sammy starts to play great this season (which we hope he does), it’s hard to see how he will earn a new deal on Tyneside.
