Newcastle Want Striker With 23 Championship Goals This Season


Ladbrokes have made Newcastle favourites to sign Chelsea’s 19 year-old striker Tammy Abraham for a season long loan in the Premier League.

Tammy is one of many of the Blues youngsters who are sent out on loan for first team experience and they find it difficult to get games at Chelsea.

Tammy joined the Youth Academy in 2004 as a 6 year-old and has progressed through the youth ranks.

Chelsea’s 19 year-old striker Tammy Abraham

He’s been on loan at Bristol City this season where he’s had a wonderful loan spell.

He’s played 38 times in the league with 23 goals and in total he’s scored 25 goals in 45 appearance.

That’s an excellent goalscoring record in the Championship for a team that has struggled this season and he’s joint second top scorer just 2 goals behind leader Chris Wood.

Abraham’s future at Chelsea is unclear and manager Antonio Conte will probably want to send him out on a season long loan in the Premier League and he can trust Rafa to develop the lad.

The 19 year-old did so well in the second division  this term  and he needs to take a step up.

Rafa will undoubtedly try to sign him on loan with an option to buy and if he does well we could sign him next year – always assuming he joins us on loan this summer.

We have missed so many chances this season that it’s cost us a whole load of points and Rafa will be keen to add at least two news strikers to his squad this summer.

Abraham has played for the England U18, U19 and U21 sides  – and he’s still only 19.

This 6ft 4 ins striker would be an excellent loan signing for us this summer.

What do you think?

    We desperately need two top quality striker’s for next season, part of the reasons why we’re struggling for goals costing us points of late.

    We definitely need some hight in our squad.

    We need to be looking at loan signings. Just as Roma and even Juventus did so well this year.

    This guy would be fantastic but the likelihood of him being sold must be very low. Solanke also worth an offer.

    I’d be looking at Besiktas. Aboubakar could be our new Demba Ba and that Talisca looks canny and almost went to Wolves for 20M?

    Decent effort from Anderlecht if ye missing it. 1-1 and we’ll in this game. Manure arrogantly assuming they’ll win this trophy and get into the CL that way – which may well happen – but if Anderlecht get another tonight, Manure need three.

    Not even considering transfer targets yet lol. I just can’t see Rafa taking many from the Championship myself. I think he’ll be more about proven players next season with some of this squad and some young uns coming through. If he’s only buying five or six he’s going to want better than current Championship players imo. Might be wrong, but I think he’ll set his sights higher myself. If we go up with a team full of Championship players it will be a struggle I reckon,even if he does get the pick of the best. Just an opinion, not based on anything solid. He’ll be risking some of our current squad making the step up, would he really gamble more? Fancy he’s got some decent overseas talent lined up. Anyway, we won’t know until it happens but I’m hoping he’s got better fancies than Championship players in mind. Messi looking a bit unsettled like… 🙂 Don’t orry, I’m jesting

    scored 22 goals in 38 Championship matches, 18 with right foot, 2 with left foot and 2 headers. he likes to dribble and make short passes so his height isn’t a big asset. in fact he’s nearer 6ft 2in (190cm).

    Some unknown club are supposed to have bid £10 million for Abraham in January. The bid was rejected by Chelsea.

    Cracking game now. Extra time about to start, still 1-1, although manure’s big boys have all missed some sitters. Might come back to haunt them. Solid defending from Anderlecht to be fair to them. Both centre backs have played really well. More reason for the Special One to moan now, with extra time. Own fault, needs to learn how to kill these teams off. Mmm, sound familiar anyone? 🙂

    I cant be ar5ed to start thinking about transfers – we aren’t even promoted yet.

    I agree with Neville though – players from both abroad and UK want to live in london ..not because they particularly want to live in Lomndon but because they can go out without hassle – money is taking football this way, in 10 years time there will be very few teams training wher ethey are actually playing

    If he is good enough buy him or at least a loan with a buy option! We don’t want to be playing other teams players into form for them to be taken back … but of course it is a cheap option!!!!!!

    What a cracking game. Best team won Tbf, but they could’ve lost it at the end. Well worth the watch that one.

    Welshie, Arma’s not playing for us ffs, he’s on loan so what a pointless comment. To be fair as well, Rashford missed a raft of chances earlier, along with the rest of United’s team. Pogba, Zlatan, the lot of em. Those two Anderlecht centre backs were excellent tonight and didn’t deserve to be on the losing side. If that’s a reflection of their season then they won’t be staying there long. Really enjoyable game.

    From what I heard from a Bristol City fan, Chelsea want Abraham back next season so they’re not over confident of keeping him. Something about wanting to break him in slowly from the bench, but that sounds a bit up in the air to me. Once back in the PL I’m against developing other teams players for them completely, although I have no say in such matters so I don’t count. 🙂 Just encourages the likes of City and Chelsea to hoover up all the young talent, if other teams do the dirty work for them. Championship it doesn’t matter, but I’m set against blooding other teams’ prospects.

    Welsh – Rashford is the equivalent of a child genius at football – you don’t get many of them. Seeing Man U defend at the end there reminded me of us in the Leeds game except they just got away with it!

    Martoon, that late header could’ve won it for Anderlecht in the final minute. Would’ve been robbery like, but then, so was Leeds’ goal against us. Got to cut out these mistakes. Their second at Ipswich was another case of Lascelles watching the ball whilst an attacker was unmarked to his right,very similar to Woods’ goal. Third was decent though, but Dummett should never have let the cross come in if you want to be critical. Too many daft mistakes costing us points, but like Ed says, could be promoted Monday night. Makes the meltdown on here the other day look a bit silly now like. 🙂

    Perhaps the manager and the players in the summer will study how to score and defend plus use descent tactics and formation for dummies book.

    Right, because we’re getting promoted with a manager who has never won nowt. I can’t decide if you’re just winding up or actually believe the things you say sometimes. I kinda lean towards the first…
    Anyway, guess who’s looking like being the ref again v Preston? Huddersfield’s home boy Bobby Madley. You really couldn’t make a worse choice from the FA after the controversy recently. Giving the conspiracy crew loads of ammo and frankly, they might be right! Surely the FA can:t seriously be that dumb? Sorry, must be tired – of course they can. Imagine if his decisions cost us again? Can you imagine the outcry? Rafa needs to speak up about this. Regardless of whether he’d cheat or not, it’s how it looks, not how it is. This will be really controversial if it goes ahead.

    Mart, I’m with you matey. Preston will give Huddersfield a real game because they need the points. If they get into the play offs I make them favourites to go up. A home and away tie then Wembley, the way they play and the way others are feeling the pressure I can see them doing it. What do you think?

    For a club to move town is very rare in England although it has happened Ed.

    In the States it’s ridiculous, teams being franchises like burger restaurants. The raiders recent case is comitragic.

    Now the Neville idea is not that big of a crime. It’s thinking out of the box… A training centre in London or … France, owned and used by Nufc, or any big rich team, is creative thinking. Think having a house in Newcastle as well as somewhere else, if you can afford it. Ain’t no sin.

    That could make the club – job more attractive.

    What about the players form Newcastle? Do they have to move to London? The youth set up, all the kids have to move down south too? It wont happen

    The idea was floated by Sunderlands terrible ownership which received a backlash from their fans. Northern teams arent suffering because they cant get players in they are suffering because they have terrible owners or unstable set ups

    I guess millions of pounds a year for kicking a ball around for a few hours a week does not make the job very attractive?

    Though an ‘Udders fan, he was the ref when we beat Preston 6-0, Reading 4-1 and 2-2 away to Norwich.
