Free Agent Midfielder Excited To Play At St James Park For The First Time


The Newcastle United U23s will look to redeem themselves after a poor start to the season. Like the senior squad, the U23s have lost their opening two matches. Similarly, they were both very poor in one match while being a bit unlucky in the other.

The U23s opened the season with a calamitous 0-6 loss at Reading They followed up that up with an improved 1-2 loss at Whitley Park against West Ham. In the second match, they suffered an own goal as well as a straight red.

The team will next face Manchester United who sit on top of Group 2 in Premier League 2 with six points and a goal difference of +7. Newcastle, consequently, are bottom with no points and a -7 goal difference.

The next game will take place at St James Park on Friday evening.

New youth signing Kyle Scott has given an interview on the official Newcastle website website about the upcoming fixture against Manchester United.

This is what Kyle has said about how he is looking forward to playing at St James Park:

“For the team, it’s an important game as we have played two and lost two. The standard has not been great at the moment. We’ve got a new bunch of players, and it will take time to get used to each other and working with each other.

“We don’t want to lose three out of three so, on Friday, we need to make sure we come in and get the win.

“I’m looking forward to playing at St. James’ Park. Hopefully, there is a good crowd there, and I can show people what I can do. But I think the most important thing is to be getting the win to start us off.

“When you get to the stadium, and you are going to have more people there than usual, it generally gives everybody a bit of a lift. We’re playing against one of the best teams, so it makes you want to beat them and do well even more.

“The top teams always have a good team with good, young players coming through. Whatever team they bring, they will be comfortable on the ball and this week we want to show we have a plan and hopefully come away with the three points.”

It is a big game for Neil Redfearn and the U23s as this has been a disappointing start. It seems that all levels of Newcastle are struggling at the moment. Both the U23s and the senior team have new managers who really need to get a good result.

Kyle Scott– looking for a lift at St James Park

This is what Kyle has said about working with U23 coach Neil Redfearn, his new teammates, and the slow start to the season:

“I like it here. The lads are all good, and I enjoy working with Neil (Redfearn). I’m looking forward to the season and hopefully I can kick on even more.

“I went a long time without a game, and my last one was in November but I have now played two 90 minute games so, with a couple more matches under my belt, I’ll be into it. When you are back on the pitch playing games, it’s the best thing so I’m really happy for that.

“We ought to have got something out of the West Ham game. Apart from the own goal and the set-piece, I don’t think they had many chances but that’s how football goes, and hopefully in the next game, that bit of luck will be on our side of the table.

“We deserved to win that game, but it was a much better match compared to the first one and we improved a lot. I think we’ll be fine once we get the first win, and can go on a strong run.”

It will take time for 21-year-old to get going after not featuring much over the past year. Friday’s match will be a perfect opportunity for him to show what he can do in what could be the first of many appearances at St James Park.

    Bills Son is Back,
    You alluded earlier to the suggestion myself and a few others would be better at managing Newcastle. I’m not sure if you meant the business side or not, if you are then you’re right, we would. Firstly I would have given Rafa what he wanted, I wouldn’t have let petty jealousies and a fools pride get in the way of running my business successfully. I would have realised that by giving the manager what he wanted I still wouldn’t have to put in my own money just not take out as much and let’s face it, being a multi billionaire would I really need the extra dough at the expense of a very successful business. I think I would have also realised that although I wouldn’t be making as much each year, by doing the right thing I would have tens of thousands of happy fans/customers instead of a failing business that in eight months time is going to worth less than half of what it is now with a hell of a lot of customers not bothering to turn up. In fact, a wonderful idea would be for Ashley to sell up now.

    Following a player for two years then signing him for the next manager isn’t flying by the seat of his pants.

    “The Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs” typically describes Ashley’s greed regarding us, he could have slowly made a lot of money while advertising his business instead of carving us up. Did Aesop speak a little bit of Greek too Jibbers or did living in 6th century BC Greece make Latin his mother tongue?

    I fail to see why people say we have championship players, we have a decent premier league squad. We aren’t going to be top 10, but are somewhere between 11th and 16th for me (just an opinion).

    The same people saying we are full of championship players are the same ones blaming Bruce for not winning our first two games.

    We never got our first win until November last season, a run that saw us fail to beat Palace, Southampton and Brighton. There is plenty of time to turn the season round.

    Why is SB our manager? They failed with attempts to get a progressive coach, ran out of time and had few options! Basically, no one wanted to work for the regime.

    Jib,
    In hindsight Kenny Dalglish was a very bad move, but he’d won titles at Lpool and Blackburn and whose stock couldn’t have been higher at the time, Ruud Gullit was also seen as an up and coming manager who would bring exciting times, Graeme Souness wasn’t wanted here at all but he’d had a half decent managerial career at least. They were bad choices and didn’t work out but at least had been brought in to try and bring success. There was nothing ill thought about Steve Bruce, they went for a manager who had PL experience, was desperate to manage in the PL again at any cost and wouldn’t rock the boat. Unfortunately for us Steve Bruce was the highest on the rung that fit that category, their thinking was very clear on what they wanted and they got one of the worst of a very bad bunch. I’ve no doubt in my mind that Moyes and Pulis were also approached.

    Bills

    I’m confused. You said that I and a few others would successfully run NUFC. Are you reneging on that now after I thanked you for the compliment. Or could it be you were trying to be sarcastic. Now why is that Bills? For a man who claims he can come back with any ripostes better than me I think you are going to have to up your game and be ever so slightly more subtle with your insults.You aint cutting it at the moment. You’re just making yourself sound like a fatuous silly old boy.

    You miss the point completely, as seems to be your forte. Reasoned debate instead of one eyed vitriol is another thing you may want to work on. It’s got nothing to do with if I’ve got some coaching badges or if you played against Pele, that’s totally irrelevant. I was not comparing myself to Bruce, but you have to realise people judge people on merit and their overall performances, not necessarily comparing them by their own abilities but by the evidence presented.

    I think most right thinking people couldn’t give a stuff if Bruce was a geordie or not and this ”one of your own” b—ks can not mask the fact that at the wages he’s on Bruce does not have the job on merit. Us fans are not on 50 or 60k a week but we have eyes and you can separate the duds from the guys at the top. It’s not a case of me saying I personally could do better, but obviously given the facts, data and statistics we are not in a good place with agent Bruce.

    There are a few contradictions I often see here.

    People say Ashley has contempt for the fans and doesn’t care what they think of him. They then say he has PR people working on a blog which sees a couple hundred regular posters interact.

    They say he only cares about asset stripping and being in the premier league to promote his other businesses, then accuse him of hiring a poor manager to upset the fans and potentially take us down.

    You couldn’t make it up.

    I always feel I need to add here that Ashley is a bad guy. He has been bad for the club in terms of sending us backwards when a lot of clubs have used the new premier league money to invest and really kick on (look at spurs as a prime example of what we could have done). I’m not defending Ashley, just saying I think a lot of it is hyped up by people here.

    Do you honestly believe they tried to get Arteta other than to let the Chronicle know that they rang his agent, did they fly him here in one of Ashley’s choppers, get out the scale model of the training ground and get Shola to tell him how great things were going to be?

    Ashley operates a culture of fear apparently.

    Desperate people must work for him then and others must be wary of criticising him in case of reprisals.

    We slag these MA supporters off as being on his payroll or PR but maybe people are taking the easy road to avoid trouble?

    Remember “you don’t know how f***ing horrible we can be”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just for clarity to all the supporters, PR and MA’s inner circle – Mike Ashley you are a massive crap bag who has ruined our club. I hope you find out how horrible we can be……….

    Good coaches will always come to the premier league. Our transfer/spending policy is restrictive compared to some clubs in the league, but it’s still much better than a lot in Europe (outside the big clubs).

    Benitez joined only 3 years ago, did he really not know what Ashley was like after 8 years in charge and all the court cases? People will always take the job on if approached, it’s a great way to get a name for yourself and Benitez couldn’t lose… do well and he’s a miracle worker, do badly and it’s the owner’s lack of investment… it’s a free hit.

    Why do you think Ashley/Charnley would let Bruce take us to league 1? They’ve never done that with any manager before. The two relegations have seen the manager replaced mid season in a bid to stop it.

    People rightly say Ashley wants to own a Prem League club due to the money involved and the advertising space. Why would he let somebody take us that far down. He’d never get his money back then.

    You’re right of course! We have a regime that just lies to appear to be doing everything to be a successful club but in fact is trying to do as little as possible whilst staying in the premier league and bank the money!

    If you screw your eyes really tight, it still doesn’t say Ashley hired Bruce to upset fans.

    The genius that is jib still wonders why Toon22 calls him PR.

    Transfer

    The first time he took us down he went through a few managers, I wouldn’t say he actively looked to get us out of the mess.

    Rafa stepped in last time, again not very proactive on the clubs part.

    Neither looked planned to me, in the slightest.
