This Youngster Now Very Important For Newcastle

21 year-old Ayoze Perez has had a very good first season for Newcastle United, and he has already appeared 29 times for the club  this season, and he’s scored five Premier League goals.

That’s particularly good when you realize the initial plan for the twice capped Spanish U21 International was to be playing for the Development squad for his first season at the club.

But Ayoze has not scored this year, and although he’s hit the bar a few times, he has not scored while John Carver has been the interim head coach at Newcastle.

Now with Papiss Cisse having been banned for seven games on Saturday by the FA for spitting, the spotlight will fall on Perez once again.

New arrival Manu Riviere has been disappointing when he’s played in the first team, and he just cannot seem to score in the Premier League and missed a couple of excellent chances last time out against Manchester United last Wednesday.

Ayoze Perez is not unlike Cisse in that he can score at almost any time from anywhere, and Ayoze will probably become a starter again at Everton on Sunday afternoon.

One area where the youngster has improved this season is in the physical department, and he’s bulked up and can stand his ground with the big physical defenders in England.

Ayoze is a very good technical player, who can shoot with either foot and is a good header of the ball, and is fairly tall at just under 5’11”.

Whether John Carver will continue with his 4-4-2 formation at Newcastle with Cisse out is a good question,  and maybe Manu Riviere and Ayoze will be given the chance to combine up front.

Newcastle have only won two games in the ten games so far under John Carver, and that’s not a good record, but we need goals to win games,  and the club have now just lost our top goalscorer for all but three of the remaining ten games this season.

This is a great time for the 21 year-old impressive Spaniard to come through again for Newcastle.

We hope Ayoze does just that.

    I think Riviere and Perez knowing they are first choice strikers will come good.

    If we are signing from the French league we’ll only sign outside the big 4 clubs! Theres still some talent there.
    I’d look at the following
    Whahib Khazri (Bordeaux)
    Wissam Ben Yedder (Toulouse)
    Courentin Tolisso, Yassine Benzia and Fares Bahlouli (Lyon)
    Paul-Georges Ntep (Rennes)
    Neal Maupay (Nice)

    The Lyon 3 especially will probably all go on to be worth a rather lot of money

    @ Jeff – I reckon Perez and Riviere actually might compliment each other well.
    Riviere’s finishing as been poor but I like that he’s really put himself about. Sometimes when strikers are poor they go missing (cisse is bad for this) but Riviere is still getting into good positions and doing the running.

    Very good player. Good technical ability. Quick feet and clever in terms of gruns and space. In short too good for nufc at the moment.
