18 Year-Old Adam Armstrong Nominated For Award


Coventry City have nominated Newcastle’s on loan striker Adam Armstrong for the League One Player Of The Month award for August.

This follows Adam’s great start to his six month loan spell at Coventry, when he scored 5 goals in his first three games for the club, and some of them were spectacular efforts.

18 year-old Adam Armstrong – in Coventry colors

Armstrong scored in the wins against Wigan, Millwall and Crewe, and the Geordie striker is on a short list of four for the award.

The other three are Gillingham’s Bradley Dack, Walsall’s Sam Mantom and Rochdale’s Jim McNulty, and the winner will be announced on Friday.

Adam must have a great chance of being named the winner.

Here’s hoping.

Comments welcome.

    What I like is that for all the competition in places now we can actually field decent sides in the cups. the only place we don’t have competition for is RB.

    Our first team appears to be

    ———————Krul
    Janmaat – Mbemba – Coloccini – Haidara
    ————–Anita——Colback
    Sissoko———Wijnaldum——-Thauvin
    ——————-Mitrovic

    And our second 11 is

    ——————Darlow
    Janmaat – Saylor – Lacaselles – Dummett
    ————-Tiote – Gouffran
    Obertan———De Jong———Perez
    ——————–Cisse

    Thats not too bad. Even playing Gouffran as a defensive mid I think is ok given his work rate and lack of creativity going forward. The only player playing twice is Janmaat.

    Toon-Prodigy @3 – To be honest I’ve never read such a contrived article ever. Yes we all know the Pound is strong against the Euro (a lot of us have recently been abroad on holiday) but this effect many imports not just footballers. To try and suggest this was some cunning plan by Ashley is ridiculous – we mostly buy from Europe because of over inflated prices on British players regardless of the exchange rate. In fact you could argue it has cost us money because we can’t rid of players like Gouffran back to France because he is too expensive now!

    Martoon,

    I don’t think it’s aimed as having a pop at him.

    It was the wages part I found interesting because we were chatting about the wage structure earlier.

    Prodigy….Not sure there’s a hell of a lot to that article really. Similar advantage across the board for all clubs and our Sterling figures will still be what they are at the end of the day.

    That’s just good ole “Pound for Pound” (or is it “Pound for Euro”?) value imo.

    Martoon, I see the conspiracy theorists are at it again! 😉 Any money the club saves on transfers has to be a good thing, because they’re part of the money earmarked for transfers – not Ashley’s pocket. Why would you buy British when you see Stones quoted at nearl £40m? This is the lad drafted into England’s U21’s to help win the title, but who’s repeated errors gave away the goals that got us KO’d.
    As for young Arma, he’s definitely making me happy banging the goals in for Coventry. All his goals so far would have graced the PL and he’s working towards the time he lines up for the Toon again. Next time though, we’ll play to his strengths, not long high balls towards him and his giant marker. An exciting prospect and one of our own.

    Bobbybee @12 – I agree with you about Arma. Whenever we played him it was either as a late sub when we were chasing the game or on the wing – he never really got a decent chance.

    Our starting 11 would will be (based of recent selections)

    Krul
    Janmaat – Mbemba – Coloccini – Haidara
    Anita – Colback
    Sissoko – Wijnaldum – Thauvin
    Mitrovic

    Darlow
    Bigirmana – Taylor – Lascelles – Dummett
    Obertan – Tiote – De Jong – Aarons
    Perez – Cisse

    Then we have

    Elliot
    Williamson
    Good
    Gouffran
    Marveaux
    Riviere

    And any other youth players beyond that.

    Its a solid squad. Could do with another right back and we would have been solid this year. I think we did excellent business. This is probably our strongest squad since Bobbys squad.

    I would look to bring De Jong in the fold behind whomever.

    Thats my personal opinion, and bring Wijnaldum back to CDM where he plays for Holland over Anita or Colback whichever is playing the worst when De Jong is fully fit.

    Beermonkey…All okay mate. I woke up to find some women under a house. Had a lovely pair of red sparkly shoes though.

    I look amazing in them.

    Crazy weather over here 🙂

    Prodigy…I voted no. I’m not devestated, it could have been far worse. The signings themselves are good, but considering the amount of neglect that came first, we’re still not making our own luck. Nowhere near.

    My biggest issue is that I just don’t have faith in Ashleys NUFC. I’m not sure how anyone actually does, but fair enough.

    How about you?

    Toon p, it might have been more effective if we were ever in a million years likely to sign Ronaldo! The moment I started to read it I knew there was a rabbit away. It might’ve worked better with a manure fan, or a Chelsea fan with Stones tatooed on him, but Ronaldo to Newcastle? Nobody could ever swallow that one! 🙂

    How could anyone vote no?

    We spent over 50m and sold none of our best players.

    Contrary to popular belief Abeid and Kemen simply are not good enough.

    We bought some quality in Wijnaldum, Mbemba….. jury is out on Thauvin and Mitrovic, although Thauvin does look to be an improvement on Cabella from early games.

    Our first team this year has improved in masses. Likes of Gouffran, Williamson, Riviere are not even making the bench nevermind starting games!!!

    Ibiza,

    I voted yes, but only because there were no outgoings and decent quality brought in. Could of been better but I can’t grumble.

    I think it’s going to take another year and two more windows to have any faith in Ashley’s NUFC. If he drops a bollock at anytime in between in either window im sure the bed sheets will be back out and so they should.

    Im optimistic we are now behaving as we should and showing attention to the playing squad instead of neglecting it for a decent balance sheet. It’s another waiting game until the next window to be sure though to see if this really is a means to go on.

    Martoon, he’s definitely taking his chances at Coventry. All his goals have the hallmark of the natural and talented striker he is. Pleased we’ve given Vuckic the same chance as Sammy as well. Puts his future in his own hands now, the rest is up to him. Still think he could surprise a few people, but time will decide that.

    pawl250 @23 – Agree completely. If you think where we were at the end of last season, we’ve replaced the coaching team and brought in some good signings. Yes ideally we could have done with another defender but the defence is looking a lot better simply through organisation.

    My only concern is when I look at other mid table squads like Crystal Palace, West Ham and Stoke… we aren’t light years ahead we are about level.

    If we are going to be constantly top 8 then we have to top up in January and spend at least another $50m next summer.

    Sorry guys, working whilst chatting on here (naughty naughty).

    I find it hard to simply judge this window on how awful last season was.

    Surely that’s how we decide if it’s been improved, which no one is arguing.

    Should we have ever been in that position? For me, we shouldn’t. That’s not a point to try and stick to the club, but at the same time, it shouldn’t be used as a benchmark, surely?

    If you keep lowering expectations, at some stage you’re going to crack it 🙂

    Encouraging signs, but I’m still extremely wary.

    Cabaye, Ba, Santon, et al….followed by Cisse in the January were encouraging signs. Hey, we even got 5th.

    You may not all like it, but I have some way to go with the regime. Is that not okay?

    If someone asked me how many points we would have from

    Southampton H
    Swansea A (10 men for over half the game)
    Man Utd A
    Arsenal H (10 men for over half the game)

    I would have said maybe 1 point from Southampton. We have 2 points.

    Our next games West Ham and Watford I would want atleast 4 points as the following games are Chelsea and Man City!!!

    Anyone saying we would have 6 or more points, especially considering the circumstances of 2 games with 10 men and who they were against arguably best possession keeping teams in the PL, well they need a to wake up.

    We have a difficult start the season, naturally it should ease up.

    Ibizatoon.(previous thread)

    Mostly you talk sense, but when you say that McClaren is starting to sound like Pardew in the way he is sucking up to Ashley, I really start to lose you.
    If you are employed by someone, you don’t set out to rile them, to disagree with how they run their business, or to be objectionable, because there’s only one ending to that sort of behaviour.
    You presumably had the terms of your employment set out to you when you took on the job. You have to get on with that job and work within whatever restrictions there are, to the best of your ability.
    For both Pardew and Macca the Newcastle job was/is the pinnacle of their careers in club management. You don’t walk away from it easily. Pardew eventually had enough, saw an opportunity, and walked. He stuck it for four years and, we punched above our weight during his watch. If the leopard really has changed his spots, it might be easier for McClaren.

    Pawl…I agree that the points we’ve collected are about what should have been expected considering so far.

    However, I would also argue that Swansea and Soton are the type of teams that Ashley aims for us to be rubbing shoulders with.

    Mag52…I certainly did lose you, but was probably not very clear.

    It’s the constant lines of “Ashley has delivered on his promises” etc. Maybe not constant, but i’ve seen a fair few and I just don’t see why it’s needed.

    I thought the head coach was there to talk about the team? Would no longer be left to field other types of communication?

    Sure Charnley mentioned that being a mistake from the Pardew era. They seem to be making it again and it irks me.

    Nothing really against Steve. Just not sure who he is trying to convince or why?

    Mag52, I have yet to hear rom the guys who said Pardew would relegate Palace. And then he was modest after the Chelsea game on MOTD and someone said he was playing God again!! I prefer our new set up by a long way, but Pardew would have had to win a cup here to be accepted, thats the long and the short of it. And even then, people would quote crap managers who won cups. I’m glad he has moved from NUFC and actually wish he wouldnt go and beat Mourinho again etc. And as for sucking up to you boss, I agree – was he supposed to tell him to F off publicly? And lose that salary and potential payoff. real world etc!

    Blofal that’s the plan of action – 150m spent over the next three windows. 50 down, 100 to go. Even over three windows it’s still a relatively quick fix, bearing in mind where we started – relegation fodder. IF – need to be careful – the plans come good, this time next season we should have a team ready to challenge. Not selling one of our more sellable assets this window has to be a sign of intent. How many were convinced we would counterbalance the outgoings by selling first teamers? I lost count. Words like ‘guaranteed to sell’ and ‘delusional if you think we won’t cash in on so and so and what’s his name’, were spoken regularly. This time next year is the safest time to make judgement imo, when we know exactly where we stand and if Ashley has backed his promises with actions. So far so good, but it’s early days yet.

    Overrated Frenchman….how shrewd were Obertan, Mbiwa, Santon, Amalfitano, the fat goalie, Gouffran, Marveaux, the french full back who went to arsenal ( was hardly unknown was he ? ) . How much did some of those guys improve us? Granted he has done well on others, but certainly hasnt found many unknown gems, outside of the Spanish fellow and maybe Tiote. I appreciate he is working to a strict budget but plenty of clubs are too. Believe it or not I kind of like Carr but cant be done with the fawning and deification.
