Newcastle Have Looked After Me – I Love It Here

One of the success stories of the season so far at Newcastle has been our new 21 year-old striker Ayoze Perez, who we signed for €2M from Tenerife in the summer, and the lad has not only looked good and played well in his 13 first team appearances this season, but he has also scored three good goals.

The fans love Ayoze Perez – and he loves Newcastle

And at the moment Perez is the starter up front for Newcastle and is expected to be in the same role at West Ham on Saturday afternoon, where Newcastle go into the game trying to make it seven wins on the tort.

Ayoze is not a big guy, although he stands over 5’10” tall, and he has admitted to doing some weight training to build up his slight frame:

“I know I am smaller than a lot of players and that I have to improve physically but I enjoy going to the gym and training on my own because I can see the benefits of it further down the line.”

“I am a bit surprised about how quickly I have adapted and how well things are going.” “But I have never questioned whether I would be a success because being confident is a really important part of being a footballer.”

“I know my own ability and what I can achieve.” “I have colleagues in the team – the strikers – who are of high quality but I am trying my hardest to make a space in the team every week.”

“The club has really looked after me as well, which has helped.” “Being in Newcastle is a very different way of life to Tenerife, of course. For a start, the climate is completely different but the city itself is beautiful and I really love being here.”

“I’m trying to explore the area and learn more about Newcastle as a city by going to different events.” “I’ve even tried fish and chips!”

Well those fish and chips should help to build him up some – especially the greasy variety.

The Spanish U21 striker has scored three valuable goals for us in the last four league games, and two of those were the difference between drawing 0-0 and winning 1-0 so there’s 4 points right there.

And one thing Newcastle have been very good at over the last few years is taking care of their new players, especially the younger ones like Ayoze.

West Ham are a team in form, but lost 2-1 at Everton last time out – and it will not be an easy game at Upton Park on Saturday, although in the same fixture last season we won 3-1 with two goals from Yohan Cabaye – his last appearance for the club before he joined PSG.

And we should hear a clarification from Alan Pardew at his press conference today on who will be available to play in the game – with Steven Taylor, Cheick Tiote and Mehdi Abeid all players who may have recovered from injury and be available to play.

    Turning out to be a great buy, I hope he stays long enough to become an all time fans favourite.

    We can beat west ham but it all depends on how many of their injured players comes back.

    I think STaylor should be shipped out for 2M if anyone will pay and his fee and wages put towards a good top quality CB who will manage 30/40 games a season.

    Very sad news about Phil Hughes, a rare talent who tore into the new ball. He made his test debut for Australia at 20 and could have ended up one of our very greatest. RIP.

    i don’t think we would get 2m for him, but we could replace with that Celtic centre back.
