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

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.

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.

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

    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!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    What is Jonas complaining about in the Colo interview? He’s complimentary throughout. Where’s the story?

    If NUFC have tried to slip something in to serve their purpose, I can’t see what it is, never mind its purpose? Whatever it is, they’ve done a spanking good job as it all looks seamless.

    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.
    They sent the ships anyway.
    If Ashley isn’t given rope, he can’t hang himself.

    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

    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 …

    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?

    Dave. Learn to spell accept before denouncing others idiots please. Shameful if the date in your name indicates your age and only renders your opinion of Mcclaren obsolete if you can’t spell words that my 19 year old niece can.

    Gladly f**k off if you ant get behind the team and manager whoever it is.

    And what does “if you ant get behind the team” mean, now my 15 year old some uses better grammar than that the 21 is obviously your brain cells multiplied by three.

    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.

    Still, there will always be buyers for tickets because alot of fans could,nt give a shit as long as we just stay up.

    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.
