This Newcastle Youngster Can Become A Huge Star

As soon as he scored that goal yesterday hit was all the talk on the TV, of what a great goal it was – scored by our new 21 year-old striker Ayoze Perez – when he somehow managed to back-heel the ball into the back of the net just before half time, from an excellent Daryl Janmaat cross.

Ayoze Perez – brilliantly flicks the ball home yesterday
How did he do that?

It was just an unbelievable goal.

This lad can turn out to be a phenomenal signing for us – and he cost just €2M from Tenerife in the summer, when he chose Newcastle United over both Barcelona and Real Madrid,. and now we know why the two Spanish giants were so interested in signing the player.

And the fantastic 2,700 travelling Newcastle fans almost brought the roof down at the Hawthorns after Colo scored our second goal, and at least in our TV report of the game,  the commentators kept saying what amazing support Newcastle supporters have given their team over the years.

They were right there.

The fans sung Ayoze Perez’ name to that old Andy Cole song, and it seems like the players told him after the game, just how big that was for him.

This is what Ayoze had to say to the Shields Gazette:

“I listened to the song, and the dressing room explained the significance,” “It’s the same song they sung about Andy Cole. It was very important for me. It’s very nice.”

“The fans are always with us, and that’s very important to the team.” “I’m very happy with the win,” “The team played very well.”

“I’m very happy for the goal as well.” “It’s not often you score a goal like this.”

The first half had been very close and to score literally seconds before the half time whistle was blown,  is always a great time to score a goal.

And while West Brom upped their game at the beginning of the second half,  Colo’s great headed goal after 62 minutes,  again from a Daryl Janmaat cross meant the game was over.

And Newcastle defended very solidly from then on,  to ensure our fifth win in a row in all competitions.

But this lad Perez is just amazing, and he’ll get a lot of publicity for that great goal, and his third goal in as many league games.

Wonder how much Perez is worth now – it’s a lot more than €2M.

Here’s that goal again.

    “I listened to the song, and the dressing room explained the significance,” “It’s the same song they sung about Andy Cole. It was very important for me. It’s very nice.”

    At last the penny has dropped & the players are starting to realize the importance of playing for Newcastle. Perez has been a real breath of fresh air for the club. Up front even on his own he never stops running at defenders, harrying them and forcing them to pass or into a mistake.

    The young lads are hungry and want to make it on the big stage, lets hope the novelty doesn’t ware off anytime soon.

    FINALLY the message is getting across.
    Not with the spiteful media and arseholes like Bellamy though.Notice how they aren’t even doing much on the “fickle Newcastle fans” thing ?
    Its not blowing up (yet) so they’ll try to make as little of it as possible.
    Note – how theres mumblings against Brendan Rodgers and Arsene Wenger, with a damn site LESS reason than we did against Pardew, but being glossed over ?
