Newcastle Send Another Youngster Out On Loan

Since Alan Pardew arrived on Tyneside almost two years ago, he’s been very keen to get the youngsters out on loan and getting some first team experience. That will probably happen with 20 year-old Mehdi Abeid shortly, but 19 year-old Newcastle forward JJ Hooper (Jonathon James) has been sent out on loan to Darlington.

JJ Hooper – out on loan to Darlington

The 19 year old was born in the same place as Steven Taylor – Greenwich – and it’s likely the 6’1″ player is expected to make his debut against Spennymoor in the League Cup tomorrow night.

Some information about JJ form the Newcastle web-site:

London-born striker who hit a hat-trick on his debut for Newcastle’s Under-18s against Chelsea on the opening day of the 2010/11 season.
JJ – or Jonathan to give him his Sunday name – had only signed a scholarship with the Academy the previous day, following a successful trial.
Previously with Cray Wanderers and Sevenoaks FC, Hooper is a tall and strong frontman who has already demonstrated his eye for goal.
He made his Reserve debut as a second-half substitute against Bolton in October 2011.
JJ is an Arsenal fan (what?) whose favorite players are Thierry Henry, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, his first second-string goal came at Stoke in September 2012.

JJ made his debut for Newcastle United’s under-18s against Chelsea on the opening day of the 2010/2011 season and he scored a hat-trick – not a bad start for the youngster.

It’s always good when our youngsters go out on loan, and it’s a huge opportunity for them to impress.

JJ has already played 6 times for the Newcastle U21 side this season, usually on the left hand side.

    He has lost us 3 EPL games this season out of ten we are playing really boring hoofball, we have no midfield creativeness. He will only take us down.
    Let’s have another shiny new manager …. like Sparky

    This wekend won’t be a physical battle, it will be a more pure football game. Time for us to play to our strengths. At present we are doing everything to keep Demba happy, but it is hurting the team. When we play our best and in a 4-3-3 (but Cheick HAS to play) then we automatically play to Cisse’s strengths.
    Papiss still has 5 years left with no release clauses that are silly, and he is as explosive a finisher as I have seen. We need to get him the ball in and around the box, andget that smile back on his face. If Demba decides to leave then there is precious little we can do about it. Let’s get back to what we are good at.

    So where did he go to on load – Darlington or Hartlepool?

    …I though Darlington went bankrupt or something. If he’s at Hartlepool then he’s a ‘Monkey hanger’ 😀 (god I always wanted to say that ever since Wizard or someone told me they are called ‘Monkey hanger’ at Hartlepool :)) lol

    Haha i know, i don’t think a single one of my mates wants Pardew out yet somehow 80% of the ground do.

    Many of the doomers come out with crazy statments & contradictions like this all the time which ends up dis-crediting their main argument.

    I think many of them might be still love drunk on the keegan/Robson years

    les/ frey

    when did i say that 80% of the ground want him out??

    just so you are clear on what i said

    i copied this from that thread,

    It will be squeaky bum tim for Pardew in about 5 matches time, I’m not making this up, I would say as high as 80% ( no I have not counted them) at the ground are not happy with the direction Pardew is taken the club,
    This is very much Jenny dog leash part 2 , he finished 2 in his first season( jan to may) 12 the season after ,
    With very poor football , pissed most of our best players off to,
    Sold ginola for 2.5 million and bought des Hamilton for the same money in the same week

    now read cearfully ,, its says most are not happy with the direction he is taken the club, ie football, nothing about sacking the guy,,

    but its guys like you 2 that twist things to make your argument sound better,, so is your argument so poor you have to make up lies???

    frey,, you make yourself look stupid

    I dont think it will do the boy any good in the least.
    The club should set its sights higher than non league sloggers, he is 19 years old and Carlisle at least would be suitable development loan.

    It says in the story Darlington, but in the caption Hartlepool.

    If it’s Hartlepool, he’ll be playing against Coventry on Saturday in League 1.
    If it’s Darlo, he’ll be playing against Billingham Synthonia on Wednesday in the Northern League.

    Big difference.
