If Tammy Abraham Wants To Be A Hero He Should Join Newcastle

Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling has started his March for Men and is busy raising money for Prostate Cancer UK.

He was in Bristol yesterday where young Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham spent a season on loan at Bristol City last season and scored a whopping 26 goals in 50 total appearances.

Chelsea rate the young striker and it seems a toss up between Newcastle and Brighton as to which club Tammy will opt to go on loan to next season.

19 year-old Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham

Jeff weighed in with his opinions about Tammy in the Bristol Post – and he was asked if he thinks the 19 year-old is  ready for the big step up to the Premier League:

“I really do, yeah.” 

“When he came to Bristol City, friends of mine at Chelsea came to me and said of all our loanees, he’s the one who could make the grade at Stamford Bridge.”

“They felt he has the potential to be a Premier League player, and I certainly do as well.”

“The attraction is if you do go to Newcastle and you are a striker, and you do score goals, you are an absolute hero up there.”

“But Brighton’s a smashing club as well with good support too.” “They’ve got to go out and find somebody who will fill his boots.”

“Obviously, the loss of Tammy Abraham – that’s massive.”

It’s not really clear to us we are the favorites to sign this lad on loan because Brighton is so close to where the lad lives in Surrey, so he could get home very quickly.

And the likelihood is that he would be the number one striker next season at Brighton and that would not necessarily be the case at Newcastle.

Finally, Jeff Stelling is doing something very important and it’s great to see that.

He was on the second leg of his March for Men in aid of Prostate Cancer UK – to support Jeff’s marathon journey, you can go here.

It’s for a very worthy cause.

    Lejuene was a very strange signing for Man City. I’ve just read that Man City announced a partnership with Girona then signed 2 of their players only to loan them back. The other player was a striker who got 5 goals in 40 games in segunda 2. So it seems they only did this as a way of giving some money to the league 2 club (knowing the Qataris to get round some rules other teams have to abide by, aka cheating) to help them get promoted.

    While it seems he has had a good season with Eibar as has Semedo, neither of them have experience defending in a tough physical league so I’d be surprised if both of them adapt and dislodge Lascelles/ Clark/ Mbemba. But Rafa is a master of finding good defenders so they must be good.

    Not keen on the Tammy Abrahams deal. I’m not doubting his potential however I’m not keen on loan signings. They rarely work out. Chelsea may rate him but they need to be honest with the player, he will not break into their first team. They are a buying club, and there will always be someone better they can buy.

    Oh and I agree the conversation thread needs to be a continuous list, not on separate pages.

    Mike, Rafa transfer work can be very hit and miss like any manager. Sels, lazaar, games all a waste of money and wages. I’m not concerned about foreign singings though. We need the value for money. Keys signing will be 9. I would far prefer a prem proven striker.

    Tsunki keep this between us but you can like your own comments.

    It’s great.

    I have a feeling he’ll join Brighton because he’ll probably be first choice there.

    Avatar added, from the looks of it he is a “tap-in-king”, not so sure that suit the way we have been playing, look at Gayles goals and compare, you will see we didn’t get so many taps in from his goal haul last season, he was running onto through balls…………..

    Good young player but why loan someone to sit on the bench?

    I’m surprised so many people are not considering we will need to play 3 at the back next season, as a lot of premier teams do. So we need players that are used to that system. So Clark, Lasceles, Mbemba and maybe Dummet and Goode?. So we will need another cb or 2 to cover suspensions/injuries(hopefully not many), afcon etc.
