These Two Youngsters Ready To Make It On Tyneside


17 year-old  Callum Roberts was included in the Newcastle squad for the game against QPR on Saturday, but he didn’t make the bench, but it was a chance for manager Alan Pardew to show Callum what its like to be part of the first team squad at Newcastle.

Callum Roberts – 17 year-old South Shields born winger

Not sure where Callum was born because in the local press they say North Shields,  but in his bio on the Newcastle web-site it says he was born in South Shields on 17th April, 1997.

But Callum has been very impressive playing for the Newcastle U21 side, and he deserved his promotion to the first team squad if only for one game.

Alan Pardew has talked today on nufcTV about the very skilful winger:

“I do like him. He has tremendous technique and ability.¨ “He’s a player that wouldn’t be included normally, because he’s in the preparation phase.¨

¨He’s still got another year at the Academy – and he’s behind Adam Armstrong and behind Rolando Aarons.¨  ¨But he’s knocking on the door.”

“Streete has done terrific on loan. All these local boys are brilliant; we’re in a great position with the local players.”

The Newcastle U21 side will be playing tonight at  Whitley Park against Crewe Alexandra tonight at 7:00 pm.

20 year-old center-back Remie Streete

And it’s fitting that Alan at the end of his nufcTV after the game also talked about 20 year-old Remie Streete – who may now return to Port Vale on loan if Fab Coloccini and Steven Taylor are fit for Saturday’s game at West Ham.

But here are two youngsters who are coming through the ranks on Tyneside who have yet to make their first team debuts for Newcastle.

We seem to be really well off with some of our youngsters right now – and long may that continue.

If we could get a pipeline of young players going like Southampton have down south – then that’s one way we could be pressing for a top six position every season.

    6 wins now using a 433 with the best available players in each position. Is there a chance that pardew has finally learned from not only his mistakes, but his successes? I still have that niggle that he will revert to 4231 once everyone is fit.

    High fives all round from the resident trolls. “yes yes” they chant. “that’ll show em” “whoop whoop”

    Jesus wept, well I’m guessing he did once realisation set in that the three stooges are descendents of man. I say man but what I actually meant was single cell amoeba and by single cell amoeba I mean nothing. Well done.

    Evening. I see things are getting silly on here. While i don’t subscribe to the idea that our current good form is blind luck, and nowt to do with king P, i think a few on here are going a bit far making him out to be the next mourinho! Hr still has a long way to go to prove himself even remotely useful to us.

    Also has anyone noticed the type of goals we are scoring this season ? Its the first time properly under Pardew that we are scoring team goals and well worked chances near enough every goal is inside the box from a cross or a through ball

    We also seem a lot more patient in the final 3rd although I think that may be because Gouffran, Tiote , Cabaye and Arfa are not in the team because they used to just hit shots all the time sometimes it went in but a lot of the time they went wide or into keepers hands

    the cabaye benny shoot on sight policy I think was more down to lack of options infront of them and lack of support
    on the whole we have more people moving forward with people getting into the box

    The 4231 was so restrictive with regard to which players could be effective in each role. The result was square pegs in round holes. With the 433, we have several players who can play more than one role and be just as good. E.g. Sissoko fits anywhere in the MF, as does Abied imo. Perez is just as good as a false 9 as he is as a wide forward. Even goofy and rivvy might do well in cameos if they are used in the front 3.

    Do we need signings in January or what, I mean if we sign a forward for example, what makes you think he will be in straight away and even if he was that wouldn’t be fair if our own forwards doing well, because if they are doing well then the new forward will be on the bench, same if we sign defenders or midfielders.

    What I’m trying to say is that who ever we bring in now need to be better than we’ve already got and to be fair that’s going to take some doing.

    Why hello markass 😉

    How’s things bud?

    Exactly my point on the king. A long way to go in my book too in order to erase the dreadful sequence of results.

    Credit where it’s due (not all of it though) as the young ones got played out of necessity and nothing at all to do with him giving them a chance.

    Like I said earlier, if his favourites had been fit they wouldn’t of got a look in and we’d be playing the same shitty formation with the same personnel. The credit I’m giving is playing players in their correct positions and the attacking subs instead of defensive ones. Makes a,massive difference imore mate.

    Still think he’ll revert to type once this run comes to an end.

    sissoko was not bad on the right but we benefit so mch more with him in the middle I can think of a couple of goals that are a result of him driving at teams with the ball he seems to drag the rest of the team with him
    and of course with the pace in the team he has options infront of him

    It’s not rocket science where you put sissoko, i mean you wouldn’t put veira or toure on the left or right wing. Time and time again viera and toure would cause a lot of damage charging through the middle and that’s what sissoko is doing, I was looking at the qpr game and I found it quite funny, I wonder what the defenders was thinking when they saw Sammy and Moussa running towards them especially when look how tall they are.

    Yes, you did say that earlier… Over and over and over the same points. Yes everyone gets that you won’t trust the run after 2(substitute for 3.4,5′ and now 6 depending on which week it is) good results. I’m waiting for something like ‘…his record over the last 2 years….zzzz…the dross he served up…zzzz …broke more unwanted records…zzz. Arrogant…. Etc etc. Results are going well, football is improving, youngsters are getting developed, league position is good. Let’s look forward.

    it’s difficult not to post when the ad nauseum decrying of Pardew is being replaced by the deluded. ” The change in our fortunes is down to Pardew finally listening to what we had been saying for ages”. Really we have a deluded bunch of usual suspects.

    If Pardew has a fault it’s that he is full of self belief and is prone to being stubborn. Being mainly a reader these days I can confirm that the fans constantly calling for him to do things their way are pretty much the same lot calling for him not to get shot of the hapless lazy HBA.
    If your going to criticise the manager when things are going badly then he’s due some praise when going well. Not even the plodding JFA can sustain the claim that the club is being mismanaged. We simply have a self sustaining club which will record profits for the last three consecutive seasons. Contrast pre Ashley acquisition when we made losses of £ 33 million – I believe.
    In terms of self sufficiency, those that watch us at all levels tell me that we now have an academy squad full of pace, honest drilled endeavour and perish the thought for the toon an abundance of talent. Arguably Pardew was right, pre season, when he said this now was the best squad since his December 2010 arrival. Beardsley should take some credit as well.
    It takes time for new signings to gel. But what is abundantly clear is following the Spurs and L’pool blue print in big spending is not always the answer. It does take time for young talent to come through and maybe we need to be more patient. When was the last time we won something- so what’s another year or so!
    It’s early days yet in our resurgence but let’s at least acknowledge that Pardew is doing OK. Long may it continue.

    Whilst your at it, why bother posting at all if your just going to go over and over and over slagging people who, in all fairness have a right to be discontent. We’ve heard it all before..zzzz. We know zzzz. The best thing since slided bread is the king zzzz. What do you expect zzzz. ZZZZ.

    I wish my colleagues understood the notion of lunchtime…….

    I wish I had just a pound for every time I’ve been in a bar after a match watching Sid the Sexist and his mates nodding sagely as they bandy verbal sp**k bubbles between each other in voices just loud enough to be heard at the next table.
    The squeaky one with the spiky hair, the Trigger look-alike and the guy with the slip-ons, mustache and comb-over. Talking football.
    And watching them when the “did you spill my pint?” guy wanders in, drunk, disorientated and alone.
    Suddenly they fall to sullen silence, peeping over their lager shandies, now pressed as un-offendingly as possible to their chins. Ankles together. Sphincters contracted. Arms welded by sides and shoulders narrowed to avoid any sh*t-scary bumps, or God forbid, eye-contact with the Biffa Bacon guy.
    Then they meekly shuffle off in search off somewhere quieter, tails between their legs, bitching as they go.
    Mag92, Jeff etc. I’m, not having a go at you here. Please spare me a battering, as I know I will be on my own against three impressive fellows. One or two might join in for a sly little go themselves.
    You are the king-pins. No doubt about it.

    Ian. You have some fantastic new friends!
