Adam Armstrong is doing just great out on loan at Coventry City and he’s scoring the goals for the Midlands club under the watchful eye of experienced manager Tony Mowbray.
In fact with his fifth brace last night in Coventry’s 4-3 win over Barnsley he is top of the League One scoring charts with 12 goals in 14 appearances and he’s scored more goals than any other striker in all of the Football League’s 92 clubs.
Adam Armstrong – the local lad in Coventry colors
There’s news in the Coventry Telegraph today that they will not be allowed to play Adam Armstrong in the FA Cup First Round tie against Northampton Town this Saturday.
He was also barred from playing in the League Cup on the off-chance Newcastle could have a long run in that competition – but we were beaten 1-0 at home by Sheffield Wednesday – one of our really poor results so far this season.
One of our goals this season is to try to win a Cup and that leaves the FA Cup that’s left – something we have won 6 times in the past.
The last time we won it was in 1955 against Manchester City (took them apart 3-1) and we’ve been beaten finalists in another 7 – the last time being in 1999 against Manchester United (lost 2-0).
We think it’s very unlikely Adam will be recalled by Newcastle, but that could happen if we have a long cup run next year and even reach the final of the competition for the first time in 17 years.
As we said it’s very unlikely Steve McClaren will be recalling local lad Adam Armstrong.
What do you think?
