More Action Planned For Our Top Youngster – Start Him Sunday!

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!!

    That’s a serious man crush you’ve got for our silver/brown tongued lothario and wearer of silly glasses.

    Jak Alnwick, Steven Taylor, Paul Dummett, Jack Colback, Sammy Ameobi and Adam Armstrong together in the side isn’t gonna scare anyone Ed.

    Thought Vuckic in the few minutes he had got on showed more touches than Gouffran in 90 minutes !

    We should start Armstrong and Perez together I think they would be a nightmare to play against , low centres of gravity, dont stop running , pacy , lots of tricks , intelligent movement and dont have height so we cant hoof it !!!

    Its not really jail honest. Its just that too many fans think that because they play Football Manager that they are Football Managers! When he has a settled team and doesnt have his legs taken from under him, he is an ok mgr. Nothing amazing but not as useless as some of the halfwits on here scream.

    Am I the only one cringing at the thought of P45DUE losing the match on Sunday? The bed-sheet brigade will be out, en-mass, probably accompanied by

    Yes, it will be an absolute disaster, the first manager ever to lose 4 in a row – the consequences could be way over the top. Just hope sense prevails over the weekend!!!

    Is there any update on the Alnwick situation? Unless we start with a 5 man defence, we’re done for.

    I like the look of that team, but Anita who played almost a full season at RB for Ajax, couldn’t get a game over Dummet who’d never played there before, I don’t think Pardew likes him.

    Might be interesting. With a counterattacking setup against better opposition.

    I hate the fact that Goufran and Rivière get in the team over Armstrong.

    Armstrong offers no less than those 2 and should be given his chance.

    He’s an average manager at best in the same mould as those other managers of the year that have disappeared into obscurity, had any other owner been in charge of him he would have been forgotten, showing up now and then on Middle Eastern sports shows

    Comment #13 ok this is stupid.. please explain to me how no1 has taken drastic action on our injury issue, its nothing new and must be linked to the way we train/ manage knocks etc

    it goes back years and we aint fixed it.. im fairly indifferent on pardew, makes mistakes, not the worst out there.. but the injury issue is not helping matters

    Pardew’s errors are fewer in number and consequence than most EPL managers, relatively speaking, I’d say, they just look far worse because of our obsession with the club and because we’ve never had a complete squad. Even now, if fully fit, we’ve still got half a dozen on the books who probably really shouldn’t be figuring, and wouldn’t be, although Pardew still gets the blame, in some quarters. I think you’d be wrong to say he’s been blameless, but you’d be far far closer to the truth if you blamed him for nothing, rather than everything.
