Pardew Very Cautious About Adam Armstrong


It’s always very difficult to bring youngsters through to the first team, and they have to be handled very carefully, if they are to become top players in the future.

Adam Armstrong – we have to be careful with him

Adam Armstrong is now by far the best prospect we have at Newcastle at the moment, and the 17 year-old looked the part at Crystal Palace, but it looks like he will start on the bench – at best – on Monday night at Stoke, with Alan Pardew in his press conference today saying that he has to be very careful with the Chapel House Estate player.

This is what Alan has said today about the promising youngster:

“We’ve definitely got to be careful with him because he’s only 17. He’s got to play in a position which is probably the hardest to play in the Premier League, and he needs to gain the experience and self-confidence to play there, but he got a lot of that the other night.¨

“He started off nervously, but he got better as the game went on. You could see him grow, but that’s what I need to be careful of, that he keeps growing and he’s not deflated by a performance where he looks short.”

With that statement from the boss, it doesn’t look as though Adam will get his first Premier League start on Monday night, but he could still play a part in the game coming off the bench – if he makes the bench.

Right-back Daryl Janmaat is doubtful for the game, so we may see both Paul Dummett and Massadio Haidara starting the game on Monday night in the two full-back positions.

But after such a good display on Wednesday night we do expect Adam Armstrong to make the bench in a game we have to go all out to win.

If we can do that we’ll have 6 points from six games, and that wouldn’t be too bad – but that’s only if we can win this game – which would be our first league win of the season.

    Watching Sunderland vs Swansea I can see us getting comfortably beaten off both of these teams with Pardew in charge unless he changes that bloody formation and get pressing higher up the pitch !

    That Buckley looks pretty good is a Toon fan and was available for 3 million would have been a good addition on the wing for us ! Also Routledge again looks good why did we let him go again ??

    If Janmaat is injured for the Stoke game its going to be a bit of a reshuffle with Dummett at right back but Sammy and Cisse need to come in on a 442 I would go for :

    Krul
    Dummett RB
    Willamson
    Colo
    Haidara LB
    Sissoko RW
    Tiote DM
    Colback CM
    Sammy LW
    Cisse CF
    Riviere CF

    I think Cabella should maybe be benched just for this game as Stoke will kick him all over the pitch bring him on the 2nd half if we are chasing but he will have nightmares with Shawcross and Huth crunching him!

    Another thing that annoys me about Pardew is last season when Cabaye left clearly the club decided there was hee haw to play for and Armstrong , Aarons , Satka and Sammy were all available to play we should have brought them in gradually for the last 10 games and they would have learned a lot and been ready to go rather than the softly approach we are doing this year just pitch them in and give them a run in the team !!!!

    We basically had a free run to experiment could have had Armstrong in Cabayes role and Aarrons or Sammy established as our wingers

    I thought parsnip had his presser today? Where’s the usual links to video’s or quotes? I’ve only seen the sky sports one this morning and that was about what fatty had said, nothing more.

    Strange to say the least.

    Maybe it’s a blessing in disguise 😉

    Reading between the lines:

    I will be playing v defensive and trying to nick a goal – Adam is just too much of a flair player to risk in this game.

    Whitley bay pitch and put. Which i was quite good at. However, i have neither the time, money or the inclanation to learn it properly, it absolutely holds zero appeal to me. The only attention i give it is the last day of the ryder cup, just to see the score in hope that Europe have beaten the yanks at something.

    Then again i love watching cricket, which many others find boring. Suppose it takes all sorts

    I dont even like golf computer games.

    I actually prefer Italian cheeses and wines to french. There are some french cheeses that are excellent too, though. However, i believe that each country has its oen version of things and are essentially not comparable to each other. For exemple, France have all those varieties of cheese, but you have not managed to create anything that compares to and beatd a nice mature cheddar. Your soft blue cheeses are nice, but for hard blue cheese, things like Blacksticks Blue is superior to any french hard blue cheese i have tasted.

    @Markaccus

    Thanks for the geordie dialect lesson!

    But honnestly if you prefer Cheddar to french cheese, you got… an english taste!

    If you like blue cheese, already tasted a “bleu d’auvergne”?

    And for what concern Wines, just drink a good “côte du rhône” or a “Pommard” or maybe a “Saint Emilion”, and you will not even remember what “Italian” mean.

    If we lose against Stoke on Monday, looking at the league table already we are in serious trouble. Its about time Mike Ashley stopped behaving like a spoilt child and do the right thing for the the club and sack Pardew before its to late.

    Markaccus – I have to agree with Niafron here (well he would obviously support French produce), whilst accepting that taste is down to personal choice -I have to descibe you now as a culinary heathen.
    Whilst I do not particularly like praising “the froggies” -they clearly make the best cheeses in the world. Was it General de Gaulle who once said there is a different cheese in France for every day in the year (well exceeded now). I go on holiday to France and the choice of cheeses and wine is astounding.
    We unfortunately import poor quality stuff to foist onto the unsuspecting British public. The cheap wines purchased from French supermarkets beats the stuff flogged here by a country mile.
    Additionally the French are the best bakers and cake makers in the world.

    The king said before the Southampton game that they knew all about pelle as they’d scouted him along with janmaat.

    Obviously deemed not good enough or too expensive. Can you imagine fatty’s face when Carr told him he’s 27-28 and cost £8-9m. Pure unadulterated fury lol 😉

    I agree they make cracking bread and cakes.
    However, i believe that many people (not all) think that French have the best produce simply because they are told as much. Most of the “classic” recipies are french. However, i have tasted many different cheeses from all over the world ( i love the stuff) and, when i just fancy a plain tangy cheese, i still fall back on a lump of mature cheddar. Brie and camamabaombermamobert i find pretty tasteless. St augr is nice though.

    Do you think it would have been a good idea to bring those youngsters in when we were losing, confidence was low, team all over the place?

    Oh, and English beef (if hung properly) is miles better than french stuff. The problem we have here is the way we serve things. No finesse, but many top chefs say our basic produce can compete with any other country.

    Mr Tuff @ 21 – Some of the finest cheeses in the world are produced right here in the UK, as good as any you will find on the Continent, for sure.Try a good White Stilton, Lancashire Creamy; A mature Cheshire – the list of great cheeses is endless and they are all UK produced.

    I have another excellent recipe for success:
    One manager lightly fonged.
    Several coaches sacked.
    One owner ridiculed and forced to sell.
    Tens of thousands of happy supporters.
