Magpies Now Seeing These Top Youngsters Coming Through


Alan Pardew has told the Evening Standard that Newcastle have not produced too many top youngsters over the last ten years and he’s right about that, but we do see a bevy of top young players currently coming through the ranks on Tyneside.

17 year-old Adam Armstrong – one of top youngster coming through ranks

The emergence of some of our youngsters this year has been exciting to see,  and they have been one of the main reasons Newcastle and Alan Pardew have been able to quickly turn around a season, that did not start well – with just four draws in the first seven league games.

But since then we have taken a maximum of 12 points from our last four league games, including a second successive win at White Hart Lane, and a young Newcastle side beat Manchester City away in the League Cup to reach the quarter finals.

Alan talked about some of the top youngsters on their way through the ranks on Tyneside:

“Newcastle is a great area but we haven’t produced many players over the last 10 years.” “For the first time we are seeing real buds of success, local boys, something we are very proud of.”

“We are no longer just a French team.” “We have Freddie Woodman, Adam Armstrong, Rolando Aarons who are all highly rated by England.”

“I am not saying these guys are going to be future England internationals but they have a chance.” “Paul Dummett is already a Welsh international, Sammy Ameobi has played for the U-21s.”

And while Ayoze Perez has only just joined Newcastle from Tenerife, he has already made a huge impact with three good goals in his last three league games, and he is another exciting youngster in the famous black and white stripes of Newcastle this season.

Mehdi Abeid at 22 years old has also made the jump to the first team,  after his very successful season long loan at Panathinaikos last term, and he’s been at the club now for more than three years, after we signed him as a free agent from Lens.

Newcastle have even looked an exciting team over the last month, and we are hoping we can add to our five game winning streak on Saturday at home to QPR, even though we will be without Coloccini, Abeid and Aarons – who are all out injured.

We expect a sold-out crowd for that game.

    I think a big plus in us being able to keep these kids with us for a few years while they develop is it its sort of proven that going to the top 5 clubs stunts careers the list is getting longer it also helps that although he got injured but colback getting called up to the England squad, so you don’t have to play for the top 5 teams to get a call up
    pardew didn’t mention but in the under 21 Lascelles is training with the full squad as there looking to fast track players

    What happened to Campbell? Last year he was so highly rated and now he fell off the rank without even given a proper chance? He’s no even mentioned anymore when talking about our youth…

    i still think arma needs another year !

    yes cup games he needs to have a run out ect but i dont see him as one of our main strikers this season ! and i’s bring him on as sub in games we are comfortable in with plenty of time to get on the scoresheet to build his confidence.

    perez/abied are def ones for now as is dummett but perez needs another striker with him to ease the pain when he doesnt score as its not fair he’s our main hope for a goal at that age and with him being new to a lot harder league.

    imo stick cisse with him he’s in good form again and out of our options he’s our best hope ! and besides if things go pear shaped the fans will get on cisse’s back more than they will perez.

    @2 constantine

    i dont think he’s going to make it in the prem imo !

    he’s playing more like an acm now rather that a striker and seems to have lost the edge and ambition he once had.

    hope he comes good but i’d guess he will make his carreer at a high quality lower league team or maybe ashley will take him to rangers.
