Reports McClaren Decides To Send Top Youngster Out On Loan


There are reports in the national press today that Newcastle will finally listen to loan offers for our 19 year-old striker Ivan Toney, who has made a very good start to his Newcastle career since signing on in the summer from Northampton Town.

Ivan has played 8 times for the Newcastle U21 side and has 5 goals and 3 assists – so he’s been productive in the Reserve side – and he’s also made three first-team appearances for the club.

19 year-old Ivan Toney going out on loan – somewhere

Ivan was so impressive playing for the U21s that he was named Barclays Premier League U21 player of the month for September.

Steve McClaren has been hesitant to loan the player out and with Newcastle finding it difficult to score goals this season we are a little bit surprised he seems to have made the decision to allow Ivan to leave Newcastle – but maybe only for a one-month spell – at least initially.

Ahead of him in the pecking order at Newcastle right now for striker are Ayoze Perez, new £12M signing Aleksandar Mitrovic and veteran striker Papiss Cisse – who may even be sold in the January transfer window.

McClaren has to weigh the needs of the Newcastle first team with the necessity of getting Ivan some first team games so that he can keep improving.

Certainly the 5’10” striker has looked unfazed playing in the first team and maybe he could get some goals for us – if was given a chance in the first team?

We would expect a short-term loan to start with – so that McClaren can further assess how Newcastle are doing in the goals department at the end of that initial loan spell.

It would be good if Ivan can be loaned out to a Championship club.

    Can’t see Armstrong being recalled then, if they’re willing to let this lad go out on loan.

    Good stuff. Get them playing and learning.

    Jesper…Have you seen Narcos?

    Although the club hasn’t said as much , this loan of Toney must mean Riviere’s rehab is going well.

    I think goal poacher Cissé’s days are numbered , he’s not McClaren’s type of player.

    I wonder if Riviere is Steve’s type of player? Who would he step in for? He’s not as good on the ball as Perez. I just don’t see a spot for him but you never know I suppose. If someone up front gets injured he may get his chance.

    No positive learning curve with Ashley. He just plods along with the same plan. Anyway I’m interested to see how we’ll play away vs. Bournemouth. If they are patient and defend well they will eventually catch us on the break. Our job will be to get Mitro loose in their defense. I don’t think they can stand up to him.

    If Riviere is Mitro’s backup we better hope Mitro never gets hurt or suspended Jib. They are chalk and cheese.

    That sounds like a plan Jib. We will need to defend well away from home. I hope Steve is working on that. It’s time to get the points we need to get out of the bottom 3. Sunderland and Villa should both lose against Southampton and Man City.

    McClaren DECIDES NOTHING, at least when money is involved.
    The policy of sending out our younger players on loan to shit clubs is not to improve their skills, but to save money on whatever they can collect from the loan clubs.

    If our cheap-ass owner wanted to improve the side, they should all be playing for the reserve side, where they could familiarize themselves with the styles and abilities of their team-mates.

    Making it only a step up to the first team and fitting seamlessly into a side that plays the same tactical game.

    But being a cheapo, Ashley in his wisdom , thinks only about profit, as KK stated Ashley knows nothing about football and Llambias even less .

    Well we have replaced our then manager Pardew, with a guy who was fired from his last job , managing in the second tier, who has a stack of excuses that would make Pardew envious.

    Then promoted a novice from the office Penfold to do as Ashley tells him.

    When will this guy hire some professionals and let them do what they are good at, instead of stumbling around in the dark, yet unwilling to let go of complete control.,

    The club is a financial mess and will be relegated once more and as far as blame is concerned, look no further than Ashley.

    I read recently that they were spending around $2,500 pcm on elastic bands to keep the cash together. Mind blowing. £1bn p.a lost to rats and theives.

    Chuck…Come on, surely loaning young players out to get proper experience, rather than reserve football is the way to go? Granted it’d be better if it was at a Championship club,but I can’t comment on their level ability.

    Don’t disagree with much else you said mind.

    Munster

    He has a trophy, and has everton playing great football, and at the end of the day he entertains the crowd

    …Catchy, I dont agree mate. He flatters to deceive. His team passes the ball to death, sometimes for no reason. Its like as if the players get bonuses for passing the ball as often as possible. At one stage v Mackems a move started halfway between halfway line and the Sunderland goal. After about 40 passes it ended up back at the Everton goalie and the crowd started shouting a bit. He won a trophy with Wigan luckily, and relegated them. His teams cant defend. Big Eck won a trophy with Birmingham and I wouldnt want him….

    That move you talk about with the 40 odd passes Everton did at the weekend was around the 80th minute mark when they were leading 5-2. The players were seeing the game out by retaining possession!! Would you rather they made 3 passes had a shot and gave possession back to Sunderland so they could try to score and get back into the game? You’ve distorted facts to suit your argument there buddy!!

    Our toon u sound like a disciple of jack charlton. The everton crowd are not enthralled with martinez and i think steve bruce had them higher in the table than pretty boy martinez,defender of knackers like mcmanaman. Overrated in my book. Didnt pardew do as well in europa? Not sure.
