It’s Been A Very Good Week For This Newcastle Youngster

Newcastle United striker Ayoze Perez has won the two awards at the LFP (Liga de Fútbol Profesional) Awards in Spain last night he was up for – and he won as the best attacking midfielder and for the revelation of the year.

Perez after scoring on Sunday

Perez had a terrific season for Tenerife in Spain’s second division and scored 16 goals in just 35 appearances, and he’s already made 10 appearances for Newcastle United and scored the winner on Sunday at Tottenham, so the lad has made a very good start to his career on Tyneside.

After being presented with his two awards, this is what the 21 year-old Spanish U21 striker had to say:

“I want to say thanks again for the award.”“For me it is something that is very nice and I will share it with my family.”

“I want to thank my ex team-mates from Tenerife for this trophy.” “Without them it wouldn’t have been possible.”

It looks like Newcastle may have uncovered a gem with his lad, and he had a good game in his very first start in the Premier League, especially after he didn’t find out he was playing until an hour or so before the game started.

But he seemed to take it all in his stride, and Papiss Cisse, who he deputized for,  would have been proud of the header Ayoze put away to win the game after 58 minutes.

The NBC Sports commentator Danny Murphy, the former Liverpool and Fulham midfielder, thought it was just a terrific header – and pointed out a few times that it was much more difficult than Perez made it look.

As we said, we hope we’ve uncovered a gem this season in the young 21 year-old who seems to be a smashing lad too.

It’s just one of the positives that have been emerging at Newcastle over the last three weeks or so – after a terrible initial start to the season.

    Perez looks like a player with huge potential, just hope we don’t try and hinder his game by focusing too much on bulking up or tracking back etc.

    Wonder if we’ll see Ferreyra this season, makes sense for Perez and Armstrong to get game time ahead of him, seems to be a waste of a loan especially as we could have loaned a centre back.

    Newcastle spending for the past 2 seasons = roughly around 40 million.

    Newcastle intake from players sold = roughly 45 million. You can add maybe another 1 to 2 million for players loaned out in that time.

    Giving a surplus of around 6 to 7 million.

    Ashley’s shares in Rangers cost around 4 to 5 million – with another 2 million put in for a loan. Costing Ashley “around 6 to 7 million.”

    Ancient——-I said on the previous post what my thoughts were on how and why ashley would run rangers.
    I believe Ashley will finance Rangers in his bid for CL success through NUFC. What he takes from peter , he will give to paul.
