Winger Has Missed Out On Big Chance At Newcastle

Last year at this time Robert Kenedy had come in on loan from Chelsea and was dazzling Newcastle fans with his wizardry down the left wing.

The Brazilian has class, and it seemed Rafa Benitez was getting the best out of him in our revival as we finished 10th in the Premier League.

There was excitement in the summer when Rafa managed to get Kennedy on loan for the full season.

But the 23-year-old has been a major disappointment this season and couldn’t get into the 18 man squad for the game at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Kenedy – missed his chance at Newcastle

It seems Kenedy has lost his chance at Newcastle and Rafa has his scouts looking to bring in new wingers over the summer.

It leaves Kenedy’s career very much in limbo, and the best he can hope for is that he is sent out on loan this summer or even sold by Chelsea.

Hs drop in form could be related to family issues with his wife and kids still located in London.

That has to be difficult for a young lad trying to build his career.

And Rafa’s switch to using wing-backs didn’t help Kenedy whose type of wing play is not suited for a 3-5-2 formation.

It’s a real pity because Kenedy has the skills and talent to be a great player.

What do you think?

    I would expect Gayle to score more goals than Perez although I’m still a fan of Perez.

    I suspect it is him translating an idea rather than a word polemic can be used for contentious, controversial etc

    I suspect he used polemisch
    = polemical (in the sense of critical)

    If it’s linked in all those languages then it’s probably Greek in origin.

    At the time I thought with his Swiss pronunciation
    of German that polemisch would sound like polemic
    but chose not to comment as it seemed obvious.

    Not googled Jib, you’ll find most words that are similar in Romance and Germanic languages are of Greek origin.

    In Spain the powers that be have let it be known
    that if/when Brexit occurs those expats that want
    residency will have 21 months in which to apply.
    Are you thinking of it in France ?

    I got a residence permit when I arrived. A few years later I was told I no longer needed one because I was British! Then Brexshit happened so now I’ll have to apply again.

    What couldn’t you make up Jib, I got something wrong, a lot of similar words are of Greek origin, which I knew, I thought it was most but after looking in to it found it wasn’t the case. What is so flabergasting about that me auld pearly gate?

    Ron Knee, Jail

    You’re wasting your time trying to out-Jib Jib – he’s put his business finance head to one side and has his linguist head on at the movement. The man’s an inspiration to us all.

    I might just add that Schär’s Swiss and his first language could be any of French, German or Italian..

    Polemic

    From Wiki…..

    ‘The word is derived from Ancient Greek ????????? (polemikos), meaning ‘warlike, hostile’, from ??????? (polemos), meaning ‘war’

    So there you have it. Hey ho.

    Are you honestly suggesting that you knew the birth place of Fabian Schar as a point of general knowledge. Was it in the Monday night quiz in the Howling hops where they put out the bunting when they hear your Geordie accent?

    Paul Fraser from Bournmouth sounds like a plan ..the return of the W formation of the 70’s ain’t gonna happen 442 . – 433 but bring on the wingers ! With a large one up front .

    Thing is there are not enough orthodox wingers about nowadays. They Been bred out of football

    Sir Bobby will be turning in his proverbial.

    One on each wing please Rafa.
