This Youngster Made Of The Right Stuff – Has What It Takes To Succeed


One youngster who has come through the ranks and made an impact in preseason is Sean Longstaff and he’s only just turned 21.

In the preseason games, he did not look out of place in the first team, and Rafa decided not to send him out on loan to Portsmouth as had been previously agreed.

Sean is a central midfielder, and it’s quite apparent this lad has skill – but he also has his feet firmly on the ground.

He’s a perfect youngster for Rafa to coach – he listens hard – want to be the best he can be – and will work hard to achieve that.

That’s why Rafa has given him a four-year deal to stay at Newcastle.

Sean Longstaff – made of the right stuff

Sean has been starring for the Newcastle U21 side in the Checkatrade trophy – and the lads have reached the last 16 to their great credit.

Rafa has been interviewed in the Chronicle, and he was asked if Sean will soon get his chance in the first team:

“Yeah, sooner, for sure.”

“I am really pleased with him because he has done very well in every training session.”

“The fact we gave him a contract is because we believe he can be a good player for Newcastle United.”

“He has been with us because Hayden could not play.” “Hayden had a sore ankle and has had some treatment.”

How Will Newcastle Fare Against Wolves?

    sniff of goal he’ll have a dig .

    Bill from previous, yep I was hinting at the American angle with my ‘we don’t have an international owner’ bit

    Seriously, though, at what point would the FA be informed that there was to be a change of owner? How about the TV companies? I bet they would know before us….

    A huge muscular man walks into a bar and orders a beer. The bartender can’t help but stare at the guy because in contrast to his large muscles, the man has a head that is the size of an orange. The bartender hands the guy his beer and says, ”You know, I’m not gay but I want to compliment you on your physique, it really is phenomenal! But I have a question, why is your head so small?”

    The big guy nods slowly. He’s obviously fielded this question many times. ”One day,” he begins, ”I was hunting and got lost in the woods. I heard someone crying for help. I followed the cries and they led me to a frog that was sitting next to a stream.”

    ”No sh*t?” says the bartender, thoroughly intrigued.

    ”Yeah, so I picked up the frog and it said, Kiss me. Kiss me and I will turn into a genie and grant you three wishes.”’

    ”Keep going!”

    I looked around to make sure I was alone and gave the frog a kiss. POOF! The frog turned into a beautiful, voluptuous, naked woman.

    She said, ”You now have three wishes.”

    I looked down at my scrawny 115 pound body and said, ”I want a body like Arnold Schwarzenneger.” She nodded, snapped her fingers, and POOF there I was, so huge that I ripped out of my clothes and was standing there naked!

    She then asked, ”What will be your second wish?”

    ”What next?” begged the bartender.

    I looked hungrily at her beautiful body and replied, ”I want to make sensuous love with you here by this stream.” She nodded, laid down, and beckoned to me. We made love right there by that stream for hours!

    Afterwards, as we lay there next to each other, sweating from our glorious lovemaking, she whispered into my ear, ”You know, you do have one more wish. What will it be?”

    I looked at her and replied, ”How ’bout a little head?”

    Hahahaha one there for our resident frog

    Average contents , good evening .

    It might look like I repost the news from the 30th , the Friday, but really I’m not posting it for the attention of the rest of the blog as I know they already read it and know, but post only in reply to an attack on me to the individual that rubbishes the news I shared before Ashley ever said it. I address it to the attacker by name in order to defend myself and the story I shared with the blog Not the blog . So in that way It’s repeated while defending myself .

    Why should I be defending myself I don’t hear you ask ? Well wouldn’t you ?

    If you brought good news and then had to keep replying to nasty comments to just four people wracked with what seems Jealousy would you share any other info or would it have you upset , puzzled and not likely to share again anything you hear ?

    There is a small minority spoiling it for the majority ..I will name them

    Tsunki , with his disgusting mocking of what I happily shared
    Average contents with his nasty unmistakable hatred of his own exsistance (YOU)
    Bettyswallocks, evil..nasty and unnecessary.

    Are you all jealous ? I can’t work out the mentality of the three

    Look back , you will see I only replied to an attack on me personally in each case to any individual I was not addressing the whole blog . Forced to retort in my own defence to some real nasty stuff

    And here’s me thinking I was bringing good news that we could all jejoice in ..Iv had hell from some small minded individuals.

    Will you people I have ever named as the people that have attacked me have anything to say to me when the Club is sold ?

    Tsunki your attack on me yesterday , I’m thinking of repeating it here along with my reply.

    People will see what a nasty green little individual you are .

    It’s a shame

    As for this ITK thing as Tsunki keeps banging on about it’s just something people with child like immature minds attach credence to to me it’s a load of childish shite.

    You I mention ruin the good nature of the blog ..definatly detrimental to it with all your negativity and attacks on others.

    You need to take time out to think about what it would be like if you had any groundbreaking news..would you share it ? And if you did and where attacked how would you feel ?

    Just think about it for a min then tell me what you think ?,

    Let’s say someone attacks you and in defending yourself you are replying to the individual that refers to it ..the person who attacks you mentions it and there you have it its repeated and repeated to an individual in defence of oneself..

    So it’s not a case of me repeating it, only a reply from me to an individual I address in retort.

    And if there’s 3 attackers it looks like your talking about the initially story more than one should

    Would you concede the above if you apply some rationality ? Thank you for your nasty comments.

    Was only jejoicing and sharing ! Won’t be doing it again

    If a Frog repeats the lie he said to himself or to someone else, that Frog is a pathological liar or compulsive liar. If a Frog is living by his own delusions, he is said to be living in his own fantasy world.

    Sound familiar about any frogs you know??

    Was only sharing . Why the attack ? If it gets mentioned it’s only in reply to the same subject you keep broaching ..My input is just a retort to your abuse.

    Because of you I will never ever share another thing on this blog ..you have ruined it for others.

    Online Guy, as you said, don’t let the minority spoil your time on here. The majority have appreciated what you shared. Even if there is an element of skepticism from many, I think that is understandable given what’s gone before and you’ve allowed us all to dare to dream, at least.

    Keep your pecker up, feller – it’s a stressful time at the moment, with a bit of division in the ranks. Ignore those who give you grief, concentrate on the many more positive comments you’ve been sent, there are enough there to make the negative ones look totally insignificant if you were to tot them all up.

    If Schar is suspended I hope that doesn’t tempt Rafa back to 4-2-3-1.

    Suddenly look so much more comfortable and solid with 3 at the back and wingbacks.

    Will miss Schars sweet pings out to the left-wing. Been a very productive route of attack for us.

    Will let you know anything I am told.

    But I have a gripe with many of you so called fans. Why you voting Rafa for manager of the month? If there’s anything to guarantee a defeat in the next game it’s being named manager of the month. You might as well go to some voodoo witch and put a curse on us.

    Yep, I like Longstaff, he seems to have a bit of extra time on the ball, he’s strong in the challenge, he can play a good pass and his shooting ability is there for all to see.

    He’s been vital for Sorensen this season, the two of them and Cal Roberts have been really good together. If he gets a chance, I think he’ll take it, although it’s obviously a massive step up to the Premier League. Everyone has to start somewhere, though
