One of the things the new head coach at Newcastle will have to concentrate on, whenever and whoever is appointed, will be bringing some of our top youngsters through the ranks.
Adam Armstrong in action at Old Trafford this season
And one of our most promising local players in years is 17 year-old Adam Armstrong, who has already played 13 times for the Newcastle first team, since making his debut last year at Fulham just over a month after turning 17.
Most Newcastle fans think we will lose the game at Stamford Bridge, and in our current poll, 82% think we’ll lose thiegame.
But the 17 year-old Chapel House youngster seems to think we have a chance:
“Chelsea came to St James’ Park and we were the underdogs, but I thought we had our best game and won 2-1,” “Man City is a massive club with a huge stadium, but we went there and won 2-0.”
“There’s a lot of history at Stamford Bridge, but we’ve got to keep working hard in training every day and go for it.”
“I’m looking to get a lot more games,” “I’ve got to keep working hard and getting better. I’ve got good players around, which is good, and as a young lad you’ve got to push for your place.”
“I feel I’m doing that.”
The other Newcastle youngster who is outstanding is 19 year-old Rolando Aarons, but he’s splayed only five times this season and has been troubled by hamstring injury and his return date continues to be put back.
At the moment on Physioroom.com his return date is now set at 31st January and he picked up that injury in September. 🙁
It’s a case where it seems the injury was not handled well by Newcastle, and he came back too early when he played at Manchester City on 29th October in the League Cup.
