Newcastle Under-23s and Three Loan Lads In EFL Trophy Action

Newcastle Under-23s lost their second EFL Trophy match 3-0 at Shrewsbury this evening. The youngsters are in last place in Group D. They lost to Macclesfield 2-1 on September 3rd. This is the line-up that Neil Redfearn sent out.

Dan Barlaser was awarded his second straight start in Rotherham’s 3-2 win at home against Doncaster. Dan was substituted in the 73rd minute. He seems to have worked his way back into Rotherham’s team after having a 5 game spell where he only played for 15 minutes.

Rolando Aarons got his first start for Wycombe Wanderers as they faced Kelland Watts and Stevenage at home. Rolando was substituted in the 63rd minute as he works his way back to full fitness. Stevenage won the match 0-1. Kelland Watts played the full ninety minutes.

Liam Gibson was an unused substitute for Grimsby Town at Sunderland this evening. Sunderland sacked their manager Jack Ross earlier today. Unfortunately, Will Grigg scored a goal in the 86th minute for a 3-2 Grimsby loss. They should have put Liam in late to shore up that defense.

Elias Sorensen got a run out for the Carlisle reserves earlier this afternoon. He was able to score a goal as Carlisle won the friendly at Rangers reserves 1-2. Sorensen has been an unused substitute in Carlisle’s last two league games.

    “Unfortunately, Will Grigg scored a goal in the 86th minute for a 3-2 Grimsby loss.”

    if Sunderland keep progressing in the cups it may affect their league form.

    such a contrast to last season when the U21s won all 3 group matches away to league clubs.

    a good think Matty did really well with his goal was to keep the ball down low.

    jane, it’s a very different team – very young. They’re all teenagers, where last season you had Kell Watts, both Longstaffs, Sorensen, Owen Bailey, Cal Roberts, Stefan O’Connor. I think last season was one where kids were getting towards the end of their academy careers, this season they’re really just kicking it off.

    Work in progress, I think

    Club statement in response to Corbyn’s comments spectacularly misses the point as you’d expect. No mention of his ten plus years of free advertising and now cheap advertising, failure to maximize merchandise revenues and above all what amounts to a steadfast refusal to run the football side right, or sell. That’s the fans beef Mike Ashley.

    Nicky, that and he says he’s never taken a penny out of the club. I understand he may have never paid himself a dividend, may not have taken a chunk directly, but what about the corkage at the club bars? What about the merchandising deal with Sports Direct? What about us paying Sports Direct to hold our stock? What about the money paid to KBA which used to be 50% owned by Ashley? What about the Royalties attached to the club crest for every shirt sale?

    As you say, it’s missing the point – he’s bled us dry for a decade, he just hasn’t done it openly.

    He offered to allow an independent auditor to have a look at every aspect of the club books, then when TMG took him up on the offer, he went quiet.

    I wonder why?

    Great to get the 3 points on Sunday against Man Utd but let’s keep it real,this is the worst team ever seen in the premier league from them.In fact I think they will be in the bottom six at the end of the season.Over the moon for Matty to get the goal on his debut(Roy of the rovers stuff)but him and his brother should be warming the bench whilst quality experienced and proven Premier League campaigners should be strutting their stuff in their place.The strength in depth with this squad is a disgrace and relegation is almost guaranteed.The overreaction to Sean’s performances at the end of last season, ie him being a £50 million player was frankly embarrassing.In my opinion so far this season he’s been extremely poor.Carroll needs to start the next match and Almiron needs dropping if we’re to get anything against Chelsea.

    Alright Dougie , let us back in the glory of a win a bit longer before you rain on our parade – fair points other than starting Carroll and dropping almiron , Carroll’s a donkey past his sell by date and almiron is actually not playing as bad as some make out … Not great but atsu did hack when he came on , we just don’t have the squad to start dropping players

    It’d be discourteous to Ed and Neil if I referred you to The Mag’s site for details of Ashley’s statement in response to Corbyn’s comments!

    Mindshaft,Carroll is a far better target man than Joelinton will ever be.Almiron,although I like his work rate is an MLS player,how long do we have to wait before he provides an assist never mind a goal.The squad is a threadbare joke,before you know it people will be saying young Matty is the next Scholes.You don’t survive in the Premier League with attackers who don’t score and two kids in the middle of the park.
