Two Newcastle Youngsters Sent On Loan To Gateshead

Newcastle continue to send some of their younger players out on loan, and one popular destination is to go over the River Tyne to Gateshead FC.

Callum Roberts – 17 year-old promising Geordie

And there’s news today that 17 year-old winger Callum Roberts and 20 year old striker Adam Campbell have joined The Heed on a one month loan.

Roberts has come on a ton this season, and made his first team debut at Leicester City in the FA Cup 3rd round, and Callum looks like a very promising young player for Newcastle.

On the other hand young Adam Campbell’s career seems to have stalled on Tyneside, after he looked very good during the first half of the 2012-2013 season, so we hope Adam can do well and get a few goals for Gateshead in the next few weeks.

20 year-old Newcastle striker Adam Campbell

Adam made his debut for Newcastle against Atromitos in August 2012, and at only 17 years old he became the youngest player ever to play for Newcastle in Europe.

That game unfortunately was when Ryan Taylor suffered his first ACL knee injury, but Ryan is expected to be back in full training in a week or two.

In the past, Adam Campbell has had loan spells at Carlisle United (1 appearance 0 goals), St. Mirren (12-2), Fleetwood Town (4-0) and Hartlepool (2-0) , and he’s appeared five times for Newcastle but that was back in the 2012-2013 season.

Adam was born in North Shields and Callum Roberts is from South Shields so the Shields boys will be playing south of the river for a month.

We hope both lads do well and help Gateshead – so it’s a win-win situation.

    Campbell will likely leave in the summer, he hasn’t impressed in any of his loan spells.

    For Roberts its a good chance to play some competitive football and Gateshead haven’t really replaced Marcus Maddison who they sold in the summer, Roberts could give them the spark they’ve been missing this season.

    One from Streete, Satka or Good will hopefully get loaned out for some games too. Even though I’d rather give them a chance instead of the useless Williamson.

    Why are we not giving him the same treatment I.e putting up barricades to what ever way he’s trying to get his slimy, fat fingers into their club?

    Yeah obviously he owns it now but we didn’t put up that sort of fight. We had the odd protest that went down like a damp squid. Maaannn what did we do to deserve this tyrant?

    I think we could say about Ashley what Frankie Boyle said about John Prescott

    “A man who, if he wore a belt and a tie at the same time, he’d turn into sausages”

    newcastle un-united.

    fans on this blog argue over what type of manager ashley will attract, some expect quality to come others expect yes men.

    fans aregue over how good the team is, some believe we are capible of top 4-6 with a quality manager, others think we are mid table even with quality managers whilst ashley is here.

    we can’t even agree on when to leave stadium.

    this is why i keep saying “i hope we get relegated” if fans can’t become fully united and do what rangers do then it’s relegation that will be the best hope.

    the say loosing pardew for that off chance of a quality manager coming in is worth taking, well so could relegation as it was the year we were in the championship that ashley really wanted to sell us.

    We should go out and loan Raul Jimenez from Athletico Madrid only 3 starts and 7 subs without Torres. So with the in account I can’t see that his playing time wiill increase all that much. It could be win-win for both teams. With or without a buy-out clause.

    We could also go out and buy Davie Selke while he’s still in our price range and let him find his feet behind Raul Jimenez in the beginning if we can’t buy Raul if he’s a success.

    Also Sebastian Rode should be available for a loan or at a reduced price with a buy-back option. He’s great player a little bit rough still but the Bayern midfield is crowded anyway.

    Boycotting is the only way. Many fans want to take their kids to a game but I’m pretty sure there are no kids really relishing going, probably more of a chore like Sunday School to them as things are.

    Even if they have bought tickets, whether a single or season ticket just don’t go, fatty may already have the money in the bank but will notice the programme, pie and drink sales go down, plus an empty stadium with sky cameras advertising SD crap will definitely look pretty bleak.

    I used to look forward to Saturday’s, transfer windows but now not getting excited about games, always wanting transfer window to speed up in case we sell our quality players.

    The guy is ruining football, and I’m hoping that he isn’t encouraging others of his ilk to invest in football, that would kill the whole entire league, a bunch of ex Casino owner type, clueless about our lovely game, in it for a pound and free advertising, the end would be nigh to football as we know it.

    That was exceptionally well put in your last 2 paragraphs Goofy!

    My sentiments exactly, I have loved football from no age and I’m coming 35 and just of seasons gone by my interest is dwindling due to frustration, I rarely post now because of an adopted mehhh attitude towards things now! This man could set a template for other potential gold digging businessmen that will see pots of gold and run clubs without passion, desire or will to progress as it’s a tidy buck from the TV money.

    We used to be unpredictable on the pitch over the years now we’re consistent on it with dross and unpredictable at boardroom
