Newcastle Star To Return For Stoke Test – He’s A Class Act


The Newcastle U21 side played to a 1-1 draw against West Brom this afternoon, and Siem de Jong played 69 minutes and looked good, and he will now very likely start on the bench in the game against Stoke City on Sunday afternoon at St. James’ Park.

Siem de Jong Oldham

Siem de Jong – class player

U21 manager Peter Beardsley – a wonderfully gifted player for Newcastle and Liverpool in his day – paid compliments to the Dutch International after the game , and Peter said this to the Shields Gazette:

“Siem’s a top footballer.” “I watch him play, and I have to say – and it probably sounds big-headed – he’s a lot like I was.”

“He does a lot of unseen work in putting people under pressure and closing them down.” “He has such a football brain – he’s a proper number 10. I’ve been very impressed – he’s a class act.”

“I absolutely love him. I’ve been to watch him a couple of times at Ajax as a scout, if you like. He’s got a brilliant brain and can understand the game and slow it down and quicken it up.”

Gabriel Obertan and Jonas Gutierrez also played in the game,  as they both seek to get fully match fit after their long lay-offs.

Newcastle had to thank goalkeeper Jak Alnwick this afternoon for some great saves in the second half, and Newcastle managed to get a point out of the game.

With Siem and Gabby both being out with torn thigh muscles for a while,  it’s going to be great to have them back in the first team, especially Siem who has only appeared twice as a substitute all season.

We expect the Dutchman to make a huge impact at Newcastle through the end of this season, and because of his leadership abilities both on and off the field,  Alan Pardew made him a vice-captain of the team shortly after pre-season began in early July.

Siem can become a future captain of Newcastle once Fabricio Coloccini leaves the club – probably in 18 months time – when his contract runs out on Tyneside, and he will have been at the club for eight years.

    People still seem to think because of Santon going the fan’s are angry. It’s not him as such it’s because he’s a defender, which coincidentally is what we are short of as a whole.

    It’s ok though isn’t it because we are no longer a football club, just a business trying to cut costs. Is there any need? No. It’s wages shaved off the bill that doesn’t need shaving so along with mym’s, benny’s and the kings not to mention the fees we received for 2 of the above it’s a nice little earner!

    What other choice did they have because
    if they can’t sell one of the better players for a good fee they’ll just whittle the squad and management team down bit by bit and make money that way. Who says the slug has no ambition?

    Fcuking vile slug.

    From previous: This season was already a disaster, but there is no future excitement planned for the rest of the season, with no cover at all for the back four, I can see other teams targeting them. With the best of our youth off to Rangers, we have to wonder who will replace any injuries, in the style of Blackadder, the under 18s? The under 12’s? An embryo?

    Our only hope is that the poorest defence we have ever had stays fit.

    as far as the powers that be are concerned once another ten points are in the bag they can have the season off, if it means losing every game 0-5 then so be it.

    makes perfect sense thinning out the squad the clubs biggest expense is wages

    how many do we need we don’t compete in cups and only want to finish around 10th spot so all these extra players are just a waste of wages and that cash could be used mmm mmm not sure where

    our squad should be, to maximise profits

    2 keepers
    3 centre backs
    3 full backs 1 of which can play centre back
    4 centre mids 1 of which can play full back and on wing
    3 wingers
    3 strikers 1 or 2 able to play on the wing

    all them teams with 25 or more players are just stupid its just a waste

    The lads a good player, reckon the team below would be dynamite in the right hands, all we need is the right man in the summer and Ashley turns into a genius, 2 centre backs and a progressive manager away from good times.

    —————————-Krul————————
    Janmaat——–Collo——–Dummett—–Haidara—-
    ————————–Abeid—————————-
    —–Cabella——Sissoko—-De Jong—-Aarons—–
    —————————–Perez————————–

    Bench – Colback Goofy Sammi Riviere Cisse Obertoon Streete Satka Willo some new summer signings

    Plus a few more, people too busy whinging to appreciate what a super lively exciting side we have In the right hands.

    Granted we need two centre backs mind, you never know Streete might get a chance back end of this season and proof to be dynamite, ideal time to give the young uns a chance.

    The way people go on its as if we have a history of achieving anything but disappointment, its been a lot worse, ignore the politics and appreciate the players now Poisonous Pardew is gone. It can only get better.

    Couldn’t agree more, we were already in a very vulnerable position before today. What on earth makes them think loaning or selling players now is a good thing is beyond belief.

    Everyone know how desperately short of defenders we are, yet the idiots in the counting house believe it’s a good idea to get rid of all the decent backup.

    This is either gross stupidity from Charnley, or a designed plan to force Carver to fail, therefore saving money on bonus payments and getting Carver out of the club at the same time.

    Either way this is gross negligence.

    That’s too many players you’ve got there @21 beermonkey mate. We only need 3 center mids if we’re going to have 3 wingers. And 3 strikers is very excessive as well. Cut that back to 2 please. And give yourself a pat on the back from Mike for coming up with such a sensible arrangement.

    You really can’t help yourself can you. You do seem such a downbeat, bitter little man. Has life been unkind as you never seem to have a kind word for anyone or anything.

    You never say anything constructive at all, everything with you is a monotone, slit my wrists endless moan.

    If one person says you are a miserable so and so I wouldn’t worry, if more than 1 says it as they have done here you kind of need to up your game, as you do seem somewhat lacking in the social graces, although strangely and bizarrely at the same time having a very high opinion of yourself.

    Just seen Carvers interview on Look North, how many times is he going to say he wants the job, Jeezuz he’s already got it, he knows that all too well. Who advises Churnley that our current defence is up for the rest of the campaign, if Carver doesn’t get involved, who does what ???

    Can anybody who is constantly whinging about what a shite state the club is in tell me the last time when we had such an exciting group of attacking players at the club, just keep things in perspective a bit eh.

    Clearly the regime is treat with suspicion and contempt but have a look around the league, there are a lot worse, the manager is everything and the summer may bring the man to turn this group into something worth watching. Anita can cover both full back positions and is rarely injured, Colback also covers full back.

    Santon is a sicknote unfortunately, I do like the lad mind, wish him well, always seemed to enjoy being here. Better than most of the frenchies who constantly cause shit.

    Been a bit better since Pardick eventually fooked off, lets hope we can have an entertaining end to the season and appoint a decent manager in the summer.

    Like you mate I’m at a total loss to explain it.

    Is Carr the main man, deciding who comes and and who leaves, Charley the tea boy who will occasionally take a note from Carr to Ashley begging for some coppers from the staff donations jar to get a player in.

    Mr (please pick me pick me) Carver, says he has nothing to do with it, so don’t blame me, I just want the job, so I can sit in the managers chair and park in the managers spot, did I mention I’m a Geordie, Transfers? What’s a transfer?
