Amazing Adam Armstrong Scores Another Two For Coventry

10:59 pm, Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 8 Comments

Coventry City had their second home win in four days tonight as they beat Barnsley 4-3 with goals from Kent and former West Ham and England International Joe Cole – and yet another brace from Newcastle’s 18 year-old on-loan striker Adam Armstrong.

That’s Adam’s fifth brace of the season and it’s taken Adam up to 12 goals in League One in just 14 appearances and he stays at the top of the League One scoring charts.

Adam Armstrong – goal tally now up to 12 goals this season

The win takes Coventry to 4th place in the table,  but they are only one point behind second placed Burton and automatic promotion.

It’s almost certain that Adam will stay on loan at Coventry for the season and maybe he can help Coventry get into the Championship for next season.

However, we think once he returns to Newcastle in the pre-season he could be challenging for a first team place at Newcastle.

Adam again played the full 90 minutes as manager Tony Mowbray keeps him on the pitch since hs seems to be able to score at any time.

Good news for Adam Armstrong and good news for both Coventry City and Newcastle United.

Comments welcome.

    Ashley’s probably slavering over Armstrong’s goals.

    The lad’s in the shop-window for all to see…. and the £ signs are flashing before Ashley’s eyes.

    Loverly, loverly money.

    Armstrong in the shop window? Nothing surely could be further from the truth.

    He is so far away from actually fulfilling his substantial promise, that to even consider selling him would be laughable.

    He has to either succeed big time in the Newcastle first team, or fail to contribute over the next few years, which is far more likely, for that to happen.

    Jimmy, how you can watch this kid banging in goals for fun and still insist on writing him off is a joke mate. Just remind me where Perez came from? A league not as good as our first division, yet Arma will score twice as many when he returns. Basing an entire career on one match you watched against a Chelsea side who buy the youth cup each year is not good science is it. He’s 18 ffs. Scores on average just minutely lower than a goal a game, for Coventry, our academy, U21’s and England youth. That’s not luck mate, that’s genius. Not ready yet for the PL? He’d do better than what we are now, that’s for sure. Not that I want him back unless needs
    must, but writing him off at 18 isn’t even worth a comment.

    Haven’t written him off Bobby. I have high hopes for him.
