Newcastle United’s Sammy Ameobi is in the last year of his contract, and if he doesn’t make a big impression this season, he will follow his brother Shola out of the club next summer.
Sammy Ameobi – last chance for Sammy this season
Sammy has so far played well for Newcastle this season, maybe the best he’s ever played for us, and his 6.55 seconds goal in the second half at Tottenham was unbelievable – and he put the ball away in style and that stunned Spurs and we were able to come away with the 2-1 win.
Sammy has played 8 times so far this season, and has said this in the Shields Gazette today:
“I want to start for Newcastle every week, so I’ve got to make the most of this opportunity and make sure I don’t slip up,”
“This season I’ve worked really hard, played Under-21 games to stay on top of my fitness, and have got my chance now.”
“I’m not going to let that go this time. I’m not a kid anymore, and I realise that.” “It’s one thing being told you have all this talent, but I’m at an age when I have to produce it.”
Sammy is absolutely right about what he says, and it’s by no means a certainty that he will get a new contract on Tyneside.
The big challenge for Sammy is to be consistent, and we expect the 22 year-old to be in the starting line-up on Sunday at West Brom, and it will be another chance for the winger to show what he can do for Newcastle.
With the two week International break coming, we are hoping we can make it five wins on the trot, and move up the Premier league from the 12th position we are now in.
West Brom have the same number of points at 13 after 10 games, so only a win will take us above the Baggies.
We’re hoping for another win on Sunday, and that Sammy has another good game for us.
