Club Tweets Support Of Player Who Is Becoming World Renowned

Our Paraguayan midfielder Miguel Almiron has continued to impress in the Copa America tournament, which sees him in his first action since his hamstring injury in April.

Miguel has had an outstanding tournament so far. His first game against Qatar saw Miguel produce some magic for his country in what ended up being a disappointing draw for Paraguay.

In Paraguay’s second game against Lionel Messi and Argentina, Miguel again showcased his talents to an audience tuned in to watch the best player in the world.

Here is a tremendous run by Miguel which led to his second assist of the tournament:

The official Newcastle twitter page even got in on the action sending out these three tweets about Almiron:

Miguel Almiron is some talent and we are so impressed with this young man. He is always smiling and seems like such a genuine person.

We can’t wait to see a full season of Almiron in the black and white stripes next year. In fact, we hope he is given the number 10 shirt vacated by the soon to be out of contract Mohamed Diame.

Maybe he can join the likes of Hatem Ben Arfa, Les Ferdinand, Lee Clark, Peter Beardsley, and Craig Bellamy as top players who have worn the number 10.

    “Malcolm Macdonald as a famous Newcastle number 10.”

    Ed, you need to get this corrected quick and smart. You really do, and then we’ll speak no more about it.

    I have got a months trial of Netflix and am deciding if I want to torture myself with a bit of Sunderland ’til I Die. Watched bits of the City one which needed a lot more editing.

    Wasn’t it Tudor then Gowling as the Number 10?

    So, Wan Bassaka, a 21 year old with one year in the PL is costing more than the whole of Sunderland AFC.

    Probably about right 🙂

    Posted response on last thread

    This was the relevant part of post which I still find troubling on a re-read. Unless he believes it or is trying to wind some of us up it makes no sense for him to have come out of the blue tonight with it.

    I do think we all have to understand that Rafa ain’t coming back, no matter how much we all want him to.

    He left after he cleared out his desk the other week, yet the press won’t say it.

    (Night all btw)


    Conjecture or some inside knowledge ?

    I have posted before that new owners of clubs do have their own ideas on how club is to go forward so it isn’t unusual for a managerial change to follow.

    As we have acknowledged though this doesn’t make sense in our situation unless it is a temporary action designed to concentrate Ashleys mind of he is dragging his feet or is sale not happening within Rafa’s timescale and he won’t sign Ashleys contract ?

    Just trying to get my head around Mickys unequivocal assertion

    I bought shares on Almiron in football index. That’s when he joined us. Looks like I will make a nice return on him in about a year

    Well, it’s a proper howler if it isn’t, tsk, tsk, tsk, and how did Lee Clark get a mention in that company?

    I remember Pedro wearing number 8 while I’m about it, although he played as a number ten, and I think wore 10 his first time round the dance floor with us.

    Tony, if you’re up for a bit of fantasy drama with your new Netflix subscription, I can recommend The OA. Sounds like a medical drama, it’s not. Stranger Things is also very good.

    Obviously, I have no insider knowledge…..I make my judgements on (what I hope is) sound business logic, it makes no sense for anyone coming to the club to let Rafa go (to be honest it makes no sense to let charnley go either).
    I respect mickeys comments and I have no reason to doubt what he says….I’m adopting a wait and see stance – I don’t see what alternative there is….

    What this blog urgently needs is a fact checker.

    That is a dedicated app, that analysis’ statements posted on this beloved blog, and adjudicates the degree of factual truth within the context.

    In reality this of course would be difficult, however, collectively the blog contributers could/should be its own policeman.

    For instance, when a post proclaims that Rafa is upset/narked/miffed/deliriously delighted about a current issue, such a statement should be challenged.

    Currently, there are many posted comments related to the behaviour of our (current) beloved owner, and his supposed reaction to supposed developments in the saga known as Sheik up.

    This is in spite of any official comment from NUFC, Sports Direct. or Mash Trash…

    As they say…

    …. ‘if it sounds like a lie, looks like a lie, smells like a lie, it probably is a lie…

    Challenge everything, trust no one, (including me!)…

    A few bloggers have said Raffa has gone but i doubt he would of left without releasing some sort of statement surely.
    I honestly think he is waiting to see how the takeover pans out. Did,nt the BZG say they wanted Benitez as manager ?
    Im optimistic we will get our wish

    Well done Neil. I was just ragging on you for a giggle, but it is true, I believe, that Supermac did indeed on occasion where number 10 and even 11.
