Siem Has Good Run-Out – Newcastle Youngster Outstanding

Newcastle put in a good performance last night at Aston Villa, as our U21 side came back from a goal down to win the game 2-1, with two goals coming from Newcastle’s star youngster Adam Armstrong.

Siem de Jong – a good 72 minutes last night

Both Siem de Jong and Adam Armstrong put in good performances and caught the eye last night, and both players have put themselves in the frame for the game at home to Swansea on Saturday afternoon.

It was Armstrong who got the brace that gave the U21 side an excellent win, although John Carver has been reticent to give the 18 year-old much playing time in the first team, even though we have very few goalscorers available.

Siem de Jong played 45 minutes against Derby County last Wednesday night, and last night he turned in another good 72 minute display, and hopefully we will see Siem on the bench on Saturday.

And Argentine striker Facundo Ferreyra, who played the second half for Newcastle U21s last Wednesday night, had another good work-out last night and hit the woodwork twice against Villa.

This is the Newcastle U21s first win of the year, as most Newcastle teams are finding it hard to win games this year.

Paul Dummett has also returned to training this week but didn’t play tonight, and maybe the game on Saturday could come just a little too early for the Newcastle 23 year-old defender.

Comments welcome.

    I genuinely believe it too.

    Although I think it’s more likely a 3000Sq field with a tent in the middle.

    Wonder if he dug a moat with a drawbridge and turrets and flags and little pretend archers on stag. The cleaners probably the local tramp come to piss in his moat.

    If Carver has the job in his pocket then I’m afraid Ashley is taking the piss wholeheartedly..

    Carver has stood up and told lies for Ashley already , that’s enough for me ..lie to me and your dead in the water …lies to the Geordie public on behalf of Ashley I cant support false people.

    The Club is dead .

    JC has picked up more from the school of Gullit and Souness than Sir Bobby.What an excellent time to perfect his man-management skills by clashing with last week’s Man of the Match, Jonas Gutierrez.
    Funny, while the side is in crisis and freefall,it is ok for JC not to settle his differences with a hard-working, wholehearted and experienced player while at the same time, he, Moncur and FFS tell disenfranchised fans ‘now is not the time to boycott the team’. Patronising and hypocritical.
    After this recovering player has been treated so shabbily, it would want to have been extreme not to cut the guy a bit of slack. It would not surprise me to find out Jonas had had a go at him for denying he had any knowledge of his contractual set-up, which seems scarcely credible.

    To be honest , Armstrong has done very little in his cameos – saying that deJong wasn’t exactly lighting the stage in the games before injury ..
