Whenever we see Adam Armstrong in a Newcastle shirt we think that in a year or two this lad could become a great player.
Adam Armstrong – will be given more opportunities
We emphasize the word could because it seems so difficult for a good young player to come right through the ranks and be a top class professional, as other Geordies like Alan Shearer, Peter Beardsley and Paul Gascoigne have done.
Alan of course came through the ranks at Southampton, but he came back home is the summer of 1996 for a bargain £15M.
Adam is still only 17 and has made 9 appearances for the first team, and when he came on last night at White Hart Lane, he looked good and is such a promising young player.
This is what Alan Pardew has said about Arma today:
“Nice to see Arma (Adam Armstrong) show to our fans that he’s not just about work rate, like he did at Manchester City where he had a tough night.”
“The moment comes and Armstrong is going to be a real player for us.” “In the second half of this season, even on Sunday, he might get a much bigger slice of the action.”
“He had two or three of our best moments which he created more or less himself.”
Given Riviere is short of form and goalscoring it wouldn’t be a bad idea for Alan Pardew to start young Armstrong on Sunday against Sunderland.
And with the possibility that we have Jak Alnwick, Steven Taylor, Paul Dummett, Jack Colback and Sammy Ameobi in the side too – we could have more than half the side Geordies – if Adam also starts the game.
That will definitely help stop the rot of three successive defeats against Sunderland.
These local lads know just how important it is to beat the Black Cats.
Howay The Lads!!
