Newcastle Teenager Continues To Shine – Video


Newcastle are not playing well at the moment and having a very hard time scoring goals with our most dangerous player in the last two games being …… right back Daryl Janmaat – so that tells you how bad things are.

But our very own Adam Armstrong is not having much trouble at Coventry scoring goals and he was the scorer of Coventry’s only goal after 50 minutes on Saturday, which was enough to give the Sky Blues all 3 points at home to Chesterfield.

Adam Armstrong scored the winner for Coventry – again

Adam scored two great goals earlier this season against Chesterfield so that;s 3 goals he’s now scored against them.

Here are the highlights of the game including Adam’s goal.

If you want to go straight to the goal – it comes after 1 minute and 7 seconds.

That’s a real goalscorer’s goal and with his left foot.

Here’s what Coventry manager Tony Mowbray said about Adam in the Coventry Telegraph:

“It’s great that he scored because that will help him buy into the demands that we put on him.”

“Not that I would ever question him because he works extraordinarily hard.”

“We tell him how we think he should play, the positions he should take up, and it’s important that when he does all that work throughout the week he gets some reward for it.”

”Because if he doesn’t he might start to question what we’re telling him.”  “He hit the ground running but he hadn’t scored for a while and sometimes those things can play on your mind.”

“That’s true of any striker and he shouldn’t have that pressure on him at 18 years of age.”

That’s six goals in seven appearances for the 18 year-old – he is looking the part at Coventry.

We may need Adam back at Newcastle in January.

And another Newcastle teenager Alex Gilliead made his debut for Carlisle United at York on Saturday and provided both assists in Carlisle’s 2-2 draw.

Alex started the game and was subbed after 64 minutes – a great start for the 19 year-old.

Who said there wasn’t any good news about Newcastle these days?

    Armstrong is flying with Coventry and it will be interesting to see if he will be able to make the step up in time.

    Regarding the previous story about “bad eggs” in the dressing room, are we supposed to believe that SM would allow Tiote or anyone for that matter anywhere near the dressing room or training ground if they were causing an issue? the vultures are circling and making up all the BS they want

    someone reckoned that there is a malaise in the club but I don’t think we should be pointing the finger at anyone from that far eastern country for the clubs problems!!

    Well Colo refused to play all preseason so he’s at least as bad as Tiote, just wish he carried on his self exile into the season as well and perhaps we’d have a couple more points!

    Thauvin must have had the shortest honeymoon period of any player ever, he was lauded as the finest of wingers after his first game, about 3 weeks later he’s seen as utter crap.
    At least i’ve been consistent in always saying he was crap.

    Not long ago Nolan amd Barton were seen as the bad apples because they were vocal, then it was ben arfa because pardew didn’t like him as he didn’t defend…..much like he’s done recently with Zaha by coming out and saying he isn’t defending so subbed him for 2nd half. Problem is we get rid of the so called bad apples yet consistently play shit so maybe the real bad apples are:

    Ashley
    Penfold
    Carr
    Scteve (to an extent)

    If we need to get rid of the bad seeds then start with the 3 first and then see how Scteve does

    McClaren is the problem, he’s got a decent squad of players but his tactics and selections are shite. His one footballing decision that he has actually put his name to is insisting that Colo be given a new contract. The guy is a joke.

    Armstrong, even if he was playing a lone role up front, would be a big improvement on Cisse. I totally agree with Shearer’s assessment that he might as well not be on the pitch for the impact he has made this season.

    Let’s b frank Adam Armstrong is playing in a league that is nowhere near epl class he does not come up against kompany smalling
    Or terry every week so getting him back is nonsense it was not so long ago that most wanted him out on loan now some want him back it just proves that some have.nt got a bloody clue about football
    Just like the 11 who played on Sat maybe with the exception being Janmat
    ASHLEY OUT
    CISSE OUT
    COLO OUT
    CARR OUT
    PENFOLD OUT
    AND SOON S MAC OUT

    Arma doing what Arma does. The most natural goalscorer on our books bar none. When you play to his strengths – which isn’t lumping high balls towards him – he will score at any level. This loan will be the making of him and we shouldn’t be thinking of bringing him back yet. His strengths are running the channels and his burst of acceleration over ten yards leaves defenders in his wake. If you time those bursts with a ball to match, his natural finishing ability does the rest.

    Nobody claimed responsibility for selling Abeid but if that was McClaren as well then thats nearly as bad as giving Colo a contract. Abeid was the only player last season who could actually put in a tackle in midfield. Statistically our best tackler by a mile.

    Colo probably insisted that Arma go out on loan because he was mugging him off every day in training

    They’ll be much more going on behind the scenes than we’ll ever know.
    MA may have taken a step back but you can bet your last dollar he’ll have left certain rules and regulations for everyone to stick to.
    Definitely all the scouting still has resale in mind, there nieve ideas have a negative impact.
    Macca will have his conditions and regulations to stick to, you can count on that.
    We all know our squad has its weaknesses, but what boils my pi55 is watching us clearly not giving 100% .

    Do you think SM has anymore say on what’s happening at the club than what Pardew had???

    Do you think that Ashley has really stepped away from the running of the club???

    Will he step it up to the Championship and then prem? Loads of strikers fly the goals in at league one level and then bomb at Champ level.

    We will know soon enough eh

    Needs to keep playing and scoring. No good him coming back yet.

    As for the Tiote story, he’s definitely got some problem. He’s always injured and hasn’t been the same since we supposedly rejected that chelsea bid.

    I’ve heard various rumours that he keeps going back home for traditional treatment to his injury in the Ivory coast, that could be an issue.

    It makes me laugh. Ashley had previously said he didn’t get involved and praised himself (via pardew) when he stepped in personally that january to sign 5 players. So by the club own admission he was never really involved.

    For me nothing has changed with the set up.

    evening all
    refering to the bad eggs ….if the story is true or not i dont know……but tiote could easily make a statement thru the club denying it if he can be arsed at all…..i’d like to think if some saying pretty nasty shit about me being a bad influence and basically a waste of space i’d comeout fighting…..if true sit down with him and try and sort it… if not get rid…..same for ANY player captain or kid…..well done arma keep up the good work

    No way Ashley has stepped back, he’s just taken himself out of the firing line by claiming he’s got no part to play!!

    The club doesn’t respond to critics you should know that by now, they just ban them. Tiote doesn’t need to respond to anything because as soon as he does more stories will be plucked out of the air…..where do you draw the line?

    It’s a journo who has no clue as to what’s going on at SJP, just causing trouble!!

    Sage

    He may not be in the office Monday to Friday but the club is run to exactly how he wants it run. His latest claim that he’s stepping aside from the running of the club was simply an attempt to calm the rowdy locals down and that ever so generous £50 million was simply to safeguard the £138 million he gets by U.S. Staying up.

    Ashley is the master of lip service and the definition of lip service is

    n.
    Verbal expression of agreement or allegiance, unsupported by real conviction or action; hypocritical respect: “Lip service continues to be paid to resolving regional conflicts, but there is no sense of urgency” (Henry A. Kissinger).

    Toon tang, I’ve followed this kids progress right through the academy. So much excited by the prospect, I even attended away matches with the U18’s. I had a bet on him when he was just 16 to break Charlton’s England record and nothing I’ve seen since has altered my opinion. By far and away the best player our academy has produced since Gazza. His first ten yards is electric and by the time they’ve caught up, he’s finished it. He thinks like a footballer and always willing to try the unorthodox. Injuries aside, I genuinely expect to cash that bet in. I’ve never been this excited by one of our own. Just check out his goals, most of which would grace any level of the game.

    Getting back on topic, Arma seems able to score even when he screws up his first touch ? He’ll be useful next season in the Championship.

    Bobby, cheers for the info marra, I dont catch much youth or reserves stuff so will trust your judgement. Lets hope he smashes this season and then maybe gets a loan to a champ team next season, continues his form and then comes back. If he wants to come back that is. Looks like hes having the time of his life.. 🙂

    When he wasn’t injured mcclaren preferred the chuckle brothers (Anita and Colback) we have big issues in that area of the pitch. Can’t believe got rid of Abeid for peanuts and kept these 3 idiots.

    I said before the season started that Anita is awful yet most had him as a starter all because he can pick up a pass from his own box and play it out!! Shocking but we are in well short in all areas

    Armstrong is doing well at Coventry and hopefully it continues for him. Let’s see how he progresses in the championship next and we can consider him for the prem. He’s far from the finished product and currently isn’t good enough to start so better of playing in lower league to understand and learn his trade

    I told people straight to not get carried away with Thauvin as I knew all about his reputation and the fact we were playing northampton.
