Award Winning Youngster Looks Great Buy For Magpies

Newcastle are making an astonishing return to form of late, and on Saturday we beat Liverpool 1-0 at home thanks to an opportunist goal from our 21 year-old young Spanish striker, Ayoze Perez.

Perez was signed from Tenerife for €2M in the summer, after he chose Newcastle over some top Spanish clubs, but at the time it was stressed he was one for the future,  and was expected to play in the U21 side as he got up to speed on Tyneside.

But the lad,  who just loves it on Tyneside and has his brother Samuel playing at Blyth Spartans, has made a very good start to his Newcastle career.

Ayoze has been assisted by captain Coloccini, as the Argentine has helped the Spanish U21 International settle down quickly.

Colo speaks Spanish and played for Deportivo in the Spanish league,  so he seems a natural to mentor the youngster – and he’s done a good job of it.

Perez has now scored  two goals in successive PL matches and both were the winning goal – he has made 11 appearances for the first team

Last week he was awarded trophies as the Best Breakthrough Player and Best Attacking Midfielder in the second division of the Spanish League, and he had this to say about those accomplishments:

‘It was a very important night for me and it was very emotional to go back to Spain and win the awards.”

‘It was amazing to be surrounded by so many world-class players and it means a lot to me. I think it is the reward for all the hard work I have put in to the start of my career when I was in Spain.’

Manager Alan Pardew seems to have survived the orchestrated efforts by the Sack Pardew brigade to get him out of the club, and Perez has helped Alan to keep his job on Tyneside with two crucial goals in our last two league games.

Pardew thinks the lad is a natural:

“He has a knack.” “He has a lot to learn about the English Premier League but you know that if something falls for him he will score.”

“You sometimes get a player who can do it in training but not on match day, but he has shown he can do that and has had a fabulous week.”

Geordie fans just love to see a youngster come through and take so quickly to the Newcastle club.

And while players like Remy Cabella and Manu Riviere are taking more time to settle in this season – Ayoze has been little short of great so far for the Magpies.

He’s a huge bonus for Newcastle and all credit to the 21 year-old.

    Jail for Ashley
    From the other post.
    I say that for two reasons:
    1.WBA and Leicester games are not the same like Liverpool and Tottenham games because they are free of European Cups duty and that is SO important.
    2.I can’t see replacement for Obertan.Because of that we go back into the same problems like the period before couple of good games.The ONLY “replacement”for Obertan can be Ryan Taylor but he is a lot more different from Obertan but is still right winger naturally.But I think that Pardew doesn’t have a brain to put him at that position at the moment.If Ryan replaces Obertan then maybe we will have a chance to win.

    I think we can use Ameobi on the RW, but the problem is, he lacks match fitness. He is always buggered after a half. You have Ryan Taylor who is a utility player and can play in most positions.
    Gouffran potentially, but he has been garbage for the last year. We need the speed of Ameobi and Aarons on the wings+ Cabella playing behind the striker in a No10 role

    It will probably be Aarons left, Amepbi right, Perez/Cisse central.

    Same midfield unless Tiote is fit.

    Same defence

    I personally would love to see more of Abeid. He looks really solid. Pathanaikos seemed to rate him really well. Looks like he can take set pieces as well. I think he is the same as Colback. Tiote is more of a break up the play and pass it off, whereas Colback and Abeid do that but have more technical skills I think.

    Apparently Napoli are interested in Tiote.

    Atm, including injuries etc I would like to see as a test

    Sissoko in the middle where he belongs is reaping rewards. Tiote should only play if we need to protect something or Alan expects a ‘war’. before people get on Cabella’s back they should remember it took Pires a while to settle and look how good he was.
