Newcastle Has Changed My Life – I’m Very Happy – Video

9:59 am, Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 146 Comments

Young Ayoze Perez is already a very popular player at Newcastle,  and that’s no wonder because he seems to just love it on Tyneside, and he’s given another interview in which he says Newcastle has changed his life, and that he’s very happy at the club, and doesn’t want to leave.

ayoze perez flicks it home

Perez scores world-class goal at West Brom
How did he do that?

The former Tenerife striker was signed for the Development squad by Graham Carr, but his form saw him play 39 times for the first team last season, and he scored seven Premier League goals to be second in the goal scoring charts to the 11 PL goals scored by Papiss Cisse.

Those goals from Ayoze included the goal of the season for us, when he somehow back-heeled the ball into the back of the net at West Brom just before half time.

This is what the 21 year-old Spanish U21 Intentional has said:

“Newcastle has changed my life,” “It was a hard decision to leave Tenerife but it is a decision I do not regret having taken.”

“It was the right one. I’m very happy at Newcastle and I feel over-valued here. I don’t want to leave.”

“The first 10 weeks were very hard, I had to work hard to get up to speed but I knew that an opportunity to start a game would come with the passage of time.”

“Tottenham was a dream match. The result was 1-2 and I scored the winning goal. That made me grow a lot,” 

“English football is very different from football in Spain. Every weekend you’re playing in spectacular settings.”

“The difference is huge. There’s a lot less space. Every opposition team always has a top player and it is difficult in every game fighting for points which have much significance.”

Here’s that fantastic goal at West Brom – it takes a little time for it to come, but it’s worth the wait.

As well as being second in the goal scoring charts to Papiss Cisse, he was also second in our Player of the Season poll to Daryl Janmaat.

Who Was Newcastle's Player Of The Season?

  • Janmaat (53%, 2,685 Votes)
  • Perez (18%, 926 Votes)
  • Colback (16%, 799 Votes)
  • Gutierrez (6%, 294 Votes)
  • Sissoko (3%, 164 Votes)

Total Voters: 5,072

Ayoze Perez is a terrific young player and hopefully he can stay at Newcastle for many more seasons and score those goals for us.

Comments welcome.

    He’ll be a world beater after 6 months of coaching by Schteve, abley assisted by John “Best Coach in Premier League” Carver.

    Our current squad will see a 50% improvement in their performances by the time the season kicks off, which means we only have to buy 50% of those we all thought we actually needed.

    What a magnificent performance by our Illustrious Owner!!

    ashley statement could just back fire as so many fans are expecting so much more ……….. McLaren fills no one with joy if that’s the standard there aiming for more problems on the way

    OP/LIL

    I too don’t see how the obviously staged interview with the slug changes anything. None committal and basically regurgitating the same guff as penfold.

    A prime example being people seem to think because he mentioned investment and he’ll continue to do so, that he’s going to invest.

    What exactly is he going to invest?

    Not his own money because he’s already told us as much in 2009 which has been amply reinforced by pardew every transfer window since (wipe our own nose)

    As far as I’m aware he’s invested nothing since the loan when we got relegated. All the monies we’ve used since have been generated solely by the club.

    Where’s this continued investment he’s been making? Does he mean emotionally? That must be it becomes it certainly isn’t cash.

    “Pound for pound” and “punching above are weight” are two more examples that fcukall is going to change.

    We’ve been reduced to small club status and been managed to the point that fans want top 10 and seem thankful for it. Anything else is a bonus.

    We’ve well and truly been put in our place by the odious fat twat.

  • 5 croftus5678 // Jun 2, 2015 at 10:08 AM

    get a big no9 alongside this lad and watch his career flourish.

    heres a young lad who gave his all for us even though he was out of place and still learning in some games he did us very proud and took the edge off the depression ! rolando was another of how it can work if you trust the young ones putting the old boys who should know better to shame.

  • 6 beermonkey // Jun 2, 2015 at 10:10 AM

    you have to laugh we sacked hughton while 10th in the prem and championship winner to hire a sacked league 1 manager only for us to face 2 relegation battles in 3 seasons he leaves for more money and a little bonus for the Ashley drinking benevolent fund we are now looking to hire a man that was top of there league in jan and failed to even make the play offs
    and all in the name of progress

  • 7 croftus5678 // Jun 2, 2015 at 10:11 AM

    i agree

    he’s far too safe and avg for my liking and from my point of view shows we wont be aiming at top 6 anytime soon.

  • 8 WLtoon // Jun 2, 2015 at 10:16 AM

    Perez says he is happy but he will have a price on his head ,the same as anyone else at the club.
    I would,nt be surprised if he,s sold at a hefty profit in the summer.
    He only cost 1.5M, he,s had a decent season so his worth has trebled.
    Thats the way it is im afraid folks.

  • 9 Ron Knee // Jun 2, 2015 at 10:19 AM

    In terms of ‘managing expectations’ wouldn’t it have made more sense to short-list someone like Alan Irvine? The appointment of McClaren wouldn’t then seem so bad. It’s inept to dangle an attractive coach like Vieira, who would represent a step up for the club.

  • 10 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 2, 2015 at 10:20 AM

    I can’t remember who said it but I agree with them, I think theres an un-named dark horse who’s gonna get the job. Just like Pardew wasn’t named

  • 11 BandB // Jun 2, 2015 at 10:22 AM

    Sissoko was happy to put his name to an official club statement saying he was happy to stay last week. It hasn’t stopped an entirely different set of quotes being attributed to him since.
    This isn’t Football Manager 2016 and quotes aren’t generated by the game engine to indicate a player’s accurate state of mind.

  • 12 hibbit // Jun 2, 2015 at 10:24 AM

    That was what I was saying abt McLaren.
    Honestly speaking, he is yesterday’s man.
    In terms of reviewing his past post.
    Yes things have changed substantially since boro times and he is one of those mgrs who plays typical British style football-direct and inexpensive.
    Though that was a guess, don’t know much about the way McLaren teams plays & whether he is tactical but I like to see how he fares if given the chance.I am not saying he is a perfect appointment like u,but in terms of choice b/n him and the likes of viera,John carver,Di Matteo & Laudrup, I’d take McLaren because he has better experience,as he worked in different clubs & leagues,that might help him settle and succeed here.
    Speaking of the way he signs players,I’m not 100% sure he will get it right,that definitely remaines to be seen, but he usually said while at Wolfsburg & Twente
    “if u want to be successful, you always have to keep your best player/s..”,
    And I remember how he tried to retain Dzeko when city tried to sign him in the middle of a season & he did retained him at the end till summer.I also remember he signed the likes of Simon Kyer..
    So I guess he knows quality players.

    In the run up to the Falklands War the British side felt obliged to observe the niceties of the diplomatic process even though they privately believed the Argentinians had no intention of compromising and simply wanted the outcry over the invasion to stop.

    I cannot see PV coming to us….

    To be fair I personally feel McLaren is an improvement on Carver and Pardew.

    We won’t have relegation hanging over us !

    I think PV will want too much (His blueprint as suggested all the say in transfers and how to play the team and select coaches)

    McLaren will come in and the only change from what we have had is the name on the door, but safe hands and no relegation fight.

    Carr has me concerned lately. His choice of players lately not acceptable

  • 28 one fine day // Jun 2, 2015 at 10:47 AM

    Reyantoon,
    Maclaren is out of work now after publicly turning us down twice.
    He is mates with Carr so will know all the strings Ashley pulls yet still wants the job.
    Happy to work with john carver.
    The club is at a crossroads
    We should be pulling out all stops to completely overhaul the entire set up as not one thing is right about the place .
    Maclaren being appointed will signify nothing has/will change.
    Vieira / garde would have been the breath of fresh air .
    Why appoint a coach most fans clearly do not want .?
    If you want to be watching utter dross and seeing no decent player want to sign/ stay then yes let’s go worth Maclaren/stone /carver.
    Meanwhile watch those powerhouses of world football the swansea’s,southamptons, west hams also leave us in their tracks …

  • 29 BandB // Jun 2, 2015 at 10:48 AM

    Blackley

    I think he’s complaining that he believes Colo didn’t say the words, and claims Colo denies saying them.
    I presume he contends that even complimentary lies would still be lies.
    Colo appears to know Jonas is definitely going and appears cool with that. Perhaps both Colo and Jonas both object to that impression being given. I don’t know.
    So it may be a principle thing.
    I know. Principles.
    Makes you laugh doesn’t it?

  • 33 Blackley and Brownlie // Jun 2, 2015 at 10:59 AM

    BandB
    It’s all very odd. It doesn’t seem to serve NUFC’s purpose to make up a complete interview. I’m not sure whether Jonas is saying the whole interview is a fabrication or one particular part of it.

    As regards the bit about Colo being “cool with him leaving”, that’s just a player recognising that all good things come to an end at some point. Players coming and going is part and parcel of the game. Players are used to it and are cool about it. He may not have expressed himself in English the way he wanted to.

    I like Jonas as a bloke but I’m more circumspect about Colo. If they were talking to each other in English, they might have just got crossed wires. Storm in a tea cup.

  • 37 Slank // Jun 2, 2015 at 11:04 AM

    It would be a very odd move for Vieira to choose Turkey over the Premiership. Italy and France yes but not Turkey where he has never played. He would want to be on the big stage.

    Unless there is a managerial rabbit out of the football hat who has not been mentioned before it looks like either Vieira or McClaren. Carver is definitely out of the running.

    Both Vieira and McClaren tick all the boxes but not necessarily the same boxes.

    You did ask what the club might get from it.
    Well, the idea that Jonas was of no more use is far from unanimous, even on the blog.
    Even if he wasn’t, the manner of his dismissal looks vindictive to many. Of course, I know there are stronger stomachs on the blog.
    The club can point to Colo’s statement and say “There you go….even Jonas’s best mate agrees he should go.”
    As compliments go, it is something of a shyte sandwich.

    It’s a conspiracy theory too far for me. It’s not for players to argue in public that their employer is wrong to release this or that player. And Colo is not saying the club was right. Its just him recognising the inevitability of players moving, something that’s out of his hands. I don’t think there’d be any fuss if the club had just shown respect and handled the matter courteously in the first place. As I keep saying, they’re incompetent. With a skeleton board and management, what can you expect?

    Vieira: if we don’t get him it’s not the end of the world (or the beginning, if we do). Like the true geordie said about many of our players, he’s a ‘maybe’. Maybe he’ll succeed maybe he won’t.

  • 57 mindshaft // Jun 2, 2015 at 11:40 AM

    Fatty said he wanted to win something, he didn’t say he would invest more money.
    He did say it was up to Penfold and Carr to convince him to spend money and they had to get value for money
    So basically same as before, other than the fact he now expects to win something for the pittance he allows us to spend.

    Ashley may not get involved in the football matters but he has a tight grip on the revenue the football generates ( hence the 34 million in bank sitting untouched)

  • 66 jayphoto // Jun 2, 2015 at 12:03 PM

    Don’t want Mclaren. Really don’t but he might be the best choice, better than Laudrup or Vieira…
    Reason being is he is a personal friend of Carr (well documented). No manager is going to get any input into transfers, under Pardew we ruined career after career with Carr and Pardew on different pages, books even!
    If Mclaren and Carr can share a vision on what should be done with the players that come in we might see just how decent a scout Carr is. Their personal relationship would definitely help.
    Also, derby played amazing stuff up until feb! 6 months of beautiful football is better than what we’ve had. His coaching isnt under question and hes a fine record of developing players.
    Like i said Id rather others but there are positives for a McLaren appointment

I’m sick of it, nothing will change, same coaches just a new puppet to take the flak, I’d rather have pardew back! The man couldn’t qualify for a world cup with players such as terry, Rio, lampard, Gerrard, rooney. The man is a buffoon and couldn’t even get derby to the playoffs, injuries or not! Hughton got us up no problems. If we went for Viera the fans would have given him time and got right behind the team, it would have also signified that the ‘board’ had realised for the past 8 years it’s been shiiiiiite. A dinosaur ain’t gonna change it! I’m so gutted and giving up on football! Seriously had enough! Mclaren is an absolute moron.

    If this Vieira rumour for HC that’s been doing the rounds on here, other blogs and the papers is all a PR stunt why has he(Vieira) not rubbished the whole thing and allowed his now to be used in such a scurrilous way.

    He doesn’t appear to be a man that would allow this.

  • 74 The overrated Frenchman // Jun 2, 2015 at 12:16 PM

    As ever, the club has failed to tune in to the zeitgeist by appointing McClaren. If Vieira had got the job, ST renewals would have skyrocketed. With McClaren, they will become paralysed. Charnley, Carr and McClaren will form the most moribund senior triumvirate in the Premier League. Avoiding relegation has indeed proven to be the worst possible outcome. It ensured the Ashley plague will continue to survive. Death isn’t good enough for any if them….

    Bad news. I guess the question was whether Viera wud be a head coach only, and that was never going to happen. I think we are possibly being harsh on McLaren. The man will need to be given a chance.

    @theoverratedfrenchman – think the club know they’re are going to spend 40m on players, they’ll be banking on signings to increase ticket sakes regardless of manager!
    Theres a fair few rumours theyve already got a 15m striker in the bag, whether its austin, mitrovic or another god knows but i think Charnley understands that 75% of the fan base live by the last club decision. The fact that even when we botcott games we have the biggest attendance in england probably cemented that view

  • 80 Graeme // Jun 2, 2015 at 12:22 PM

    and all in the name of progress

    Arent This ALL SO TRUE?

  • 82 Reyantoon // Jun 2, 2015 at 12:23 PM

    one fine day
    I get what you mean..
    I was dreaming just like you-top mgr or
    someone like Garde/ viera partnership or someone like klopp,but I realized for a while now that –
    those are just wishful thinking considering the way the club operates.
    Ofcourse no one wants dross football, but
    I’m basing my view that I’m convinced it will be McLaren that will be announced tomorrow or the next day.As I said I’m not saying it is perfect appointment, neither can say that’ll be bad because I never saw his team playing.All I said is let’s give him a shot & see what he does.
    In the meantime,I suspect what Lee has said in his interview and what he now doing is completely different.When he was asked:
    ” R u kind of yes-man that always obey the rules and regulations that will come up from the top..?”. He said:
    “No I’m not.If I were like that,I wouldn’t be in this position.I have to challenge them,including Mike.I have to come up with my own ideas to challenge them and try to make this football club successful.Style of play is important for me & the club…”,
    From that interview,all I have noticed is that he is doing the opposite.His knowledge towards football is still questionable.If,as he said,he is looking for someone that is tactically astute,why wouldn’t he go for the likes of those?
    All he is doing is for his own self esteem,
    that smoothens his daily work,not football related decisions, IMO.
    Hope I’m wrong though!

  • 83 BandB // Jun 2, 2015 at 12:28 PM

    Sky have the only bat phone to St James’s Park, and is unlikely to indulge in unlicensed speculation about its favourite owner.
    John Carver STILL remains the heir presumptive at SJP as one by one his rivals bite the dust.
    ANY incoming manager is going to want some assurances about the future of players like Sissoko, Janmaat, Krul and Cisse, and John won’t.
    I wouldn’t write this one off while there’s a spark of life left in it.

  • 84 The overrated Frenchman // Jun 2, 2015 at 12:35 PM

    BandB, McClaren was unofficially appointed the day after the West Ham game. Since then there has been some window-dressing for appearances sake. Steve already has an e-mail address at the club. Not exactly MI5 are they?

    Reason: Mike ask for better technical coach which costs us more ..so i simply challenge him. Its MY JOB to COST SAVING. That’s what i’m here for.

    Didn’t comment on this stream: The season has been terrible, in terms of football, results, management, fans’ squabbling, everything, BUT what a revelation is this Perez dude. If he continues to develop he’ll be world class soon.

    Of course, we need two CF’s brought in. One a proven goalscorer, the other a young prospect, like Perez.

    Viera the smokescreen much.

    Look we really really tried and gave interviews and everything but shteve was the outstanding candidate especially after managing England, well trying too.

    They’ll think he’s an ex England manager going for free and they couldn’t possibly pass that opportunity up but what they fail to realise is he was shite in his time in charge and hasn’t managed in the prem for 10 years. Also probably because he’d be willing to work within our shite structure with judas john.

    But he managed England.

    So fcuking what he’s a dinosaur like the fcuking rest of the appointments since the slugs been here.

    If he’s appointed will fans still believe what they wanted to hear in the slugs interview? Horse bolted to the cart lol. Fcuking scabby donkey more like

    OFD tbh the rumours seem to have come from the Viera camp anyway. Doubt whether he was ever a serious contender. From a PR point of view it has not done them any favours at all. McClaren is now undermined before he even takes the job. If he is daft enough to take the job.
    No other club has the capacity to shoot itself in the foot like Newcastle. Any other club would have known what they were doing weeks before the season ended.

    I said previously that Vieira and McClaren both ticked the boxes but not necessarily the same boxes. If it’s not Vieira regrettably then I would welcome McClaren.

    It’s worth remembering that McClaren achieved more at Boro than any manager at Newcastle since Joe Harvey ever did. He didn’t achieve anything as England manager but then again neither did any manager after Sir Alf. He did well in Holland but not so in Germany and had mixed results in the Championship.

    If he arrives he will be the most experienced manager since Sir Bobby but that doesn’t mean he will win trophies as it also eluded Sir Bob.

    Bit of a lottery.
