Report – Newcastle Tracking Sixteen-Year-Old English Right-Back

Luke Matheson is a 16-year-old right-back who plays for Rochdale in League One. Matheson broke into the Rochdale first-team last season and became the club’s youngest player at 15 years and 336 days. He ended the season making 7 total appearances.

This season he has 6 appearances with 3 of those being starts in the League. Last night, Matheson scored the leveler against Manchester United in the Carabao Cup for his first goal.

The Chronicle have a report that Newcastle have been tracking the youngster since last season when he made his debut for Rochdale.

Newcastle have reportedly been looking to add talented youngsters to the academy. Apparently, Matheson is one of the players they have been tracking. His profile has gotten a little more prominent after last night’s goal at Old Trafford.

    It’s a shame that we can’t have Thumbs up or Thumbs down on the blog.

    I think that when someone is really out of line the Thumbs down may make them think again about what to write on the blog. Some stuff is really beyond the pale at times so to speak.

    Pretty sure we’ve got enough right backs on our books. A silky midfield maestro is what we need. Not lazy arse Shelvey. Hope Joelintoon can get some goals sooner or later or he’s going to be seen as an expensive failure, which would be a shame for the lad. I’m no fan of Bruce, his record speaks for itself and what we’ve witnessed this season so far, unless we get very lucky ( for example versus Spurs ) we’re doomed.

    I owe you an apology, I inadvertently only copied only part of one of your comments yesterday where you seemed to be admitting to be a fervent supporter of the nice Mr Ashlie and I asked if you were the real mole on the blog.

    It just highlights I suppose the way people can be wrongly labelled when comments are cherry picked.

    I hope you weren’t too offended by my error.

    As to you being an Ashlie mole I can only surmise as to whether this is true or not, It’s not for me (or anyone else) to make a judgement of an unproven allegation of that nature about a fellow blogger!

    Once again my humblest apologies!

    Just doing my FF updates via the BBC scores and fixtures and seen that top knot w@nker came on for Villa at the weekend. One of my favourite recent memories at SJP was when he returned here (after being conveniently suspended when Forest came back) scoring a comical own goal, even the Platinum and East stand joined in, 50K singing Henry Lansbury is a w@nker at the top of their voices, there’s no way he could have not heard it 😀

    Personally think it is too soon to sack him. Don’t think he should have got the job in the first place but to sack him now would be harsh.

    Also have to wonder who we would be able to get in as a replacement? I have a bad feeling Tony Pulis could be called upon.

    Pulis isn’t worth 10M and that’s what anyone coming would want, it’s only FSA that can save us now.

    In the first game against Forest when we’d hit a bit of a bad spell, we had two men sent off which were later over ruled and his diving and prancing had caused both of them, I think he even missed a pen, it was one of the worst cases of cheating I’ve ever witnessed in a game of football, not as high profile but way worse than the hand of gawd in 86 but disgraceful, we nearly held on for the draw, he celebrated like he’d won the league when the game finished. We couldn’t wait to see him back at ours which was late December if I remember rightly which we narrowly won, the footer never turned up. We couldn’t believe our luck when he signed for Villa in the January and managed to make the starting eleven for Villa, he’d gotten a hard time throughout the game but when he scored that own goal the place just erupted, it was pure comedy gold and will stay in the memory for a long time.

    He turned us down this summer didn’t he? At least according to himself.

    So that begs the question, who would be willing to come to Newcastle United right now and could save us?

    He turned us down as a 2/4M a year manager willing to work under the idiotic constraints imposed by Lee Churnley/Ashley but a 6M + 2/4M bonus might be much more appealing to him, realistically he’s the only one I can see saving us this season.

    Managers job – aux contraire
    It might just be that there is some dynamic, modern minded, football savvy manager out there who would relish the job with some very good players and an amazing fan base.They would have the respect of the players who would then turn in performances the like you’ve not seen so far.

    Just can’t think of their names at the moment

    Big Sam is another manager from the list who has mugged off by Ashley. He’d never come back. I’m amazed Ashley/Charnley even had the nerve to ask him! I’d rather SA than Steve Bruce any day of the week.
