There’s A Chance Newcastle Will Recall Adam Armstrong

8:55 am, Wednesday, November 4th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 15 Comments

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?

Comments welcome.

    He’s getting lots of league game time, so restricting him from playing cups, to avoid cup ties if we need him seems to make sense.

    In an ideal world we wont need to call on the lad, and will alow him to continue his progress.

    “There’s A Chance Newcastle Will Recall Adam Armstrong”

    & in other news.

    “As we said it’s very unlikely Steve McClaren will be recalling local lad Adam Armstrong.”

    Thank goodness Pardew is gone. I would have no hesitations about giving Armstrong first team experience come the New Year or next season.

    I still remember Armstrong getting his regular and embarrassing 4 minutes game time under Pardew, not forgetting Pardew pushing him out onto the flank.

    Pretty sure i read somewhere months ago that newcastles plan for Armstrong was Coventry till January and then a championship club till the summer?
    Wouldn’t be an awful idea to give him 3 weeks back at newcastle with an FA cup appearance for us in between? Might help keep him involved and motivated for his parent club

    This has to be one of the most pointless blog posts hasn’t it?

    Agree with the last post previous thread. re panicking. He said he’ll panic next year if we are still in the R area.

    I had insisted on judging this SM, after 10 games, as he had said himself. Well, my evaluation has steadily climbed. I hated the Swansea (yes) humiliation and the desperate defending of ManU. I was confused at ManCity (dominating them, scoring TWO – not one- good goals in the first half, then collapsing), but I loved our Norwich, Sunderland and Stoke displays. Good football I had not seen for years.

    So, Steve my man, for now, good work, keep it up. And pick up some points man, they tend to help.

    jayphoto whats the benefit in that the kids playing well let him learn his trade move him on to the championship in january if the right club comes in for him we as club will benefit in the end …………..bringing him back early for the odd game is a very shortsighted

    The comments are the best part of this blog. I generally visit to read them and because Ed’s blog is a good accumulator of news.
    My only problem is that this article was pointless, don’t know why you repeated the comments policy to me.

    Knowing what we know of Charnley (aka Ashley’s gofor), Arma’s got a good chance of being recalled.

    His recall would mean we don’t need to sign a striker.

    Don’t destroy Adam’s career, let him play in Coventry for this season

  • 15 Roosta // Nov 4, 2015 at 12:24 PM

    Kevinlee, Ditto.
