Our 21-year-old local lad Sean Longstaff is certainly starting to make a name for himself, and he had yet another excellent game in the Newcastle engine room at Wembley.
Sean seems to stroll through these games and never seems to be hurried which is always the sign of an excellent player.
Sean could keep his place when Shelvey and Ki are fit again, and he deserves to stay in the starting eleven on merit.
And the England selectors are looking at him for a possible England U21 call up.
He’s the find of the season for Newcastle and reflects well on our U21 coaches.
And second in the voting is one of our very best players since he came in for the second half of the 1-0 first win of the season at home to Watford.

Schar is turning out to be an absolute bargain buy at only £3M from Deportivo.
His incredible clearance off the line in the second half yesterday was something to behold.
He’s an excellent player, and it looks like he’s now a regular starter for Rafa.
The lads did very well yesterday, and we were unlucky to lose to a late goal.
