Only Two Players On Loan Could Have Newcastle Future


A number of players in our first team squad were sent out on loan in August and there were multiple different reasons for that.

In some cases Rafa wanted to get the younger players playing – like Adam Armstrong and Jamie Sterry.

And in other cases he wanted more senior players to get playing time – like Tim Krul and Siem de Jong – who have suffered from injuries and needed to be playing regularly .

Adam Armstrong has future at Newcastle

In other cases like Florian Thauvin, he was sent on loan with little chance of returning to Newcastle.

His loan was negotiated with an obligation to buy and he has past the threshold of 12 games played, so that Marseille will now have to buy him from Newcastle for the stated amount in the loan deal – thought to be £10M.

Top wage earners were sent on loan to also reduce the wage bill since Newcastle are getting significantly reduced revenues coming in  this season in the Championship.

Here are the first team players currently out on loan.

Henri SaivetSeasonSt. Etienne
Tim KrulSeasonAjax
Adam ArmstrongJanuaryBarnsley
Emmanuel RiviereSeasonCA Osasuna
Jamie SterryJanuaryCoventry City
Haris VuckicJanuaryBradford City
Sammy AmeobiJanuaryBolton Wanderers

We see both Adam Armstrong and Jamie Sterry having futures at the club, but players like Sammy Ameobi, Haris Vuckic and Emmanuel Riviere seem to have no future at Newcastle under Rafa Benitez.

For the others it depends on how they perform and it’s certainly a crucial season for 21 year-old defender Kevin Mbabu at BSC Young Boys.

For the three experienced players – Tim Krul, Siem de Jong and Henri Saivet – it seems there will only be a future for them if they perform extremely well at their new clubs.

All three will return for pre-season next July and it’s then that Rafa Benitez will decide if either of the three has any future on Tyneside.

But of the 10 first team players on loan the two we are most certain about are Adam Armstrong and Jamie Sterry and maybe the other eight don’t have a future at Newcastle?

What do you think?

    Pleased you didnt name Ameobi as one of the two. Not seen enough of Sterry to judge, high hopes for Mbabu though.

    I would have thought that Sterry, Armstrong and Mbabu will be coming back for sure, like to see Vukic playing under Rafa (all hail him) but can’t see it happening.

    The only real full game played by Mbabu he looked good, but the Toon injury curse struck him down. Rafa (all hail him) appears to have purged the club of that affliction though.

    Going back a couple of threads, it looks like Leeds will be missing a couple of crucial midfielders against us this weekend.

    It should also be noted that their top scorer, Chris Wood, is playing for New Zealand tonight (6am Tuesday) in New Caledonia.

    It will be a horrific journey back to Leeds from there which should have an effect on him physically.

    it was a good read

    If I go to the manager in the morning or speak to Paco, his assistant, and say ‘Someone is feeling something’ or we need to be cautious or watch them or that someone should do the first part of the session and then dip out, he will listen

    a manager that listens to the club doc who would believe it

    Aye mate. Shocking.

    Revolutionary, well for us anyway after all the conmen we’ve had to put up with.

    Who’d of thunked it eh, the players didn’t buy into shteve’s approach.

    The tuft rocked up and they probably thought ‘who the fcuk is this clown’

    Rafa rocked up and the rest is history.

    When I stopped playing competitively, I became a ref for a while, and the attitude to “bad” language back then was to basically pretend not to hear it, otherwise you’d be handing out cards left right and centre and so it makes me wonder what Shelvey said, and whether he’s perhaps being singled out here.

    I won’t be complaining though no matter the outcome. Any woman watching would have had to have been as rough as a pair of hessian undies not to be offended at the sheer amount of it, and it was certainly no sort of example at all to children, and it did rile the players up from time to time and lead to dangerous play.

    You’ll always get some in the hurly burly of a football game, there has to be some level of tolerance, but there should be zero tolerance for racial abuse, because it’s just so plain wrongheaded and not a reactionary thing. You have to have the words in mind in the first place.

    What’s the deal with swearing and bad language in rugby? I know there’s much mite respect for referees in that game, but not sure what the stance is with curse words. I’d like to see football adopt some of rugby’s aspects when it comes to stuff like that. I’m not looking to see crunching tackles and a bit of fire in the belly disappear, but lack of respect for those in charge on the pitch has gotten really bad over the past decade or so.

    Yes. Especially from the point of view he has made a return flight to NZ and then another return flight to New Caledonia all within less than a fortnighr. Really tires you out even if yiu are upgraded to business class. Lots of different time zones interfering with your skeep and eating patterns too.

    Personally I would say that those on a 6 month loan have a chance at a future.

    We may have a use for them in January depending on injuries.

    The rest are on loan for the season to sell them
