Crucial That Suitable Loan Spell Is Found For This Future Star

Elias Sorensen has had a break out season for Newcastle this year, albeit not for the first team. Sorensen has been named as one of nine players for the Premier League 2 Player of the Season award.

The Danish Under-21 international has had a fantastic season bagging 20 goals. He was playing so well that the club got him a loan spell to League One side Blackpool.

Rather than propelling the budding star up the ladder to the Newcastle first team, this move ended up knocking him back a few steps.

Whether it was a new atmosphere or something to do with the Blackpool manager Terry McPhillips, we are not too sure.

Elias Sorensen – an emerging young star

But the lack of match time at Bloomfield Road was detrimental to the youngster’s development. So much so that the Newcastle hierarchy terminated young Elias’s loan spell in early March.

This disappointing loan spell cost Sorensen the second half of a crucial year in his development.

The 20-year-old is still quite away from the Newcastle first team squad. This summer Newcastle United must make it a priority to find a loan spell that works for this bright talent.

We have seen far too many sterling youngsters in the Newcastle ranks fade away without ever breaking through.

It would be a shame if Sorensen joins those ranks. We hope the club can find a perfect loan match and maybe we’ll have a quality striker to bang in those goals at St James Park.

    NY – I thought of Hayden but couldn’t remember him scoring this season?
    Incidentally keep up the good work with the accounts analysis as a lot of us appreciate it and ignore idiot frogs!

    Ciaran Clark was the Captain of the England U18, U19 and U20 teams. Just because he plays for Ireland does not make him Irish, he was born in London and he’s English.

    Similar story with Matt Ritchie – plays for Scotland, but brought up in England and trained in the English Academy system.

    Anyway, we’re all European these days, aren’t we?

    Ok just checked he did indeed score in our 1 1 draw away at Wolves but you get my point about English players.

    Yes, I get your point
    I got Hayden as a lucky guess….I was thinking he scored away at Southampton – but that was last season (I think)

    Don’t worry about toon22 – he’s harmless really 🙂

    Always liked Wijnaldum, sometimes the game passed him by but you knew he just wasn’t getting the service he needed. When he left, he did so with decorum. Even playing for Liverpool now, the game drifts past him at times – reference the first leg of the CL Semi at the Nou Camp.

    Always hated Sissoko, never put any effort in unless he knew it was a big game and would be watched by managers of other clubs / France. Constantly whinged on about wanting to move, always gave interviews to French media saying he’d like to go to Arsenal, never did anything at all the justify it. Ended up at Spurs in his depseration to get away from us after our relegation, which he could have helped avoid.

    Now they’re both in the CL Final. Hope they both lose!

    How timely that the takeover rumours have started – just in time to divert attention away from Rafa’s future and transfers. Add all of those to the close season and Ashley can have himself another holiday in the knowledge that his trusty lieutenants Barnes and Bishop will manage the shop while he’s away. Charnley, guided by Bishop, can start arranging the next fans’ forum and drafting the minutes.

    Rob ,

    re Sissoko and his penchant for Arsenal , he mentioned it in L’ Èquipe more than once , determined to go there . Strange how he ended up at the arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur (full name there for the hell of it ).

    I sometimes think it’s all wrote down someplace and we are part of some synchronous experiment by a higher being or entity of superior advanced intelligencias .

    Some of the events we witness, and are part of en masse, one might say, “you couldn’t make it up “

    Right I’m off for a long weekend in Glastonbury, hopefully will be able to watch game somewhere on Sunday, probably won’t be able to do the countdown.

    So probably catch you all next week sometime.

    Bye for now!

    Think I have posted for near ten years..I was a critic of Ashley when I first arrived here full of piss and vinegar.. Keegan was forced out and it really was a massive let down at a time we thought there was a new dawn and hope . You can now add cynical to the above description …and the realisation that , as Lesh is just saying above in so many words, that Ashley and his cohorts are taking the absolute piss again ..it comes round each year and maybe twice a year..take over lies ..Rafa not signing up so cant tell him the transfer budget untill he signs . Subterfuge, lies , stalling , holidays, creative accountancy , ignoring what needs addressing quickly , ignoring the supporters , no respect, no communication, the fat twat dissappears ..anything to avoid making any true statement ..aaaggghhhh !

    Ashleys absence and silence speaks volumes .

    Wow, that makes you an old timer (I mean that in the nicest possible way)

    I am but a newbie in comparison (although I have been reading for a long time)

    I’ll abstain on the rest simply because I don’t think ‘hate’ is very constructive (I know you didn’t use that word, but you get the gist)

    Needless to say, I would like a new owner of our club…….the current one is simply not interested in our welfare.

    6th May 1974: Newcastle United’s losing FA Cup final team returned to a hero’s welcome in the city. Imagine the scenes if they ever win anything!

    Congratulations to Spurs for another amazing CL night. Will Liverpool lose it all? Will Spurs come out of nowhere and win this? Interesting that both these teams have actually not won their domestic league. In fact, they haven’t for decades!

    On loans: if this guy is good enough, he’s 20, play him.

    You have to wonder about the level of fitness
    in Euro teams – Barca the oldest team in the
    tournament and Ajax the youngest – both ran
    out of steam versus PL opposition.

    From Nufc.com
    “Both of these players were relegated from the Premier League with Newcastle United in 2016, before hastily departing for a combined £55m transfer fee.

    Fast forward three years and they’re now set to face each other in the Champions League Final, while their former club had a “good season” staying in the division.

    Only in the world of Newcastle United.

    Strange that Jail
    Sissoko spotted by Graham Carr and bought for peanuts
    Wijnaldum bought at the insistence of Steve McClaren
    both folk you’ve regularly slagged off.

    With our current team if we had Sissoko and Wijnaldum’s pace and quality we really would be a danger to the top 6 they could win a game on their own which is something that we don’t really have in the team just now!

    Sissoko playing in his natural position looks so much better which is funnily enough where Rafa had him playing by the end of the season we went down

    Hopefully Rafa is given the funds to get similar players although doubt you will get a Sissoko level player for 2 million now!!

    Sissoko still has that annoying habit of fading

    I’m not sure McLaren had anything to do with Wijnaldum, Carver was waxing lyrical about the exciting signings lined up back in the January and I’ve never heard once he was a “Mclaren” signing, even if he was responsible to you honestly think that exonerates him for the shambles he assisted with over the next seven months, just because you described him as the perfect fit. As for Graham Carr, if you check back I’ve regularly defended the bloke’s ability to spot players just slagged his willingness to see us ran as a two bit operation.
