Newcastle Youngster Wins October Award

Matty Longstaff’s game winning strike against Manchester United has won the Match of the Day goal of the month for October.

The nineteen-year-old was handed the surprise start for his debut and he came through for his hometown club in historic fashion. Newcastle had suffered one of their most humiliating defeats the week before losing 5-0 at Leicester City.

There needed to be a reaction from the lads. They were playing well at St James Park in front of an expectant crowd but didn’t get the breakthrough until Matty’s second-half strike.

It was a special goal not only for the youngster but for Newcastle fans as it lifted the dampened spirit surrounding the club before the second international break.

It did not go unnoticed in the world of English football as many heralded the heartwarming story of a local lad coming through for his hometown club.

Longstaff’s goal collected 22% of the vote to edge out Burnley’s Jay Rodriguez, whose goal against Chelsea collected 20% of the total vote.

It is indeed well deserved recognition for the Geordie midfielder.

    Not sure our attackers could score in a brothel right now haha!

    On another note just been watching MOTD and 2 of the standout players on the pitch Villa Liverpool are Robertson and Mcginn 2 players signed by…… you guessed it Bruce!!

    If we he was able to sign a few bargain players like that from the lower leagues (also signed Maguire) then it would be well done!

    Jail – How very typical of Bills Son is Back to start crowing after a win,

    Absolute bollocks again from you.

    There was no crowing in my last post, simply my thoughts on our front three.

    And, the reason why I don’t post often on here now is because of the bollocks twisted replies to sensible posts that the likes of you, hibbit, OP, and lesh make to name just a few.

    You especially would find $hit in a silver lining.

    Your obvious praying that Bruce and the team either get relegated or stay up on goal difference to justify your massive negativity on everything NUFC is a disgrace to this blog and fans in general.

    Carr also recommended Van Dijk and Wanyama before they went to Celtic!

    Being from Scotland our national team is terrible and we do take a bit of a slagging but there is some real individual quality in the league especially the players that Celtic seem to be producing in the last few years! Eduard would be just the striker we need he gets rave reviews for France U21 who have said he would need to move to a better league for getting picked for the full squad!

    Christie and Mcgregor I think would prove to be top drawer in England especially Mcgregor in midfield he just oozes quality that can play at a higher level

    you must admit it would have been good to see what rafa could have done with a new 60m partnership up front instead of 4.6m joselu and on loan rondon.

    Not entirely NUFC related, but linked. The current state of Rangers FC and the fact they spent £9m on legal fees fighting ashLIE’s SD, it just shows how deep his claws are in Rangers, and makes you wonder what onerous contracts he has with NUFC – and could well explain why we’re impossible to sell.

    Funnily enough the positions that Rafa wanted filled were Left back , Right back, Winger and Centre forward and he also wanted “brains” in midfield of the quality of Wijnaldum/David Silva!

    I would say he would have been happy with Willems , ASM and Joelinton being signed if he had have got to keep Rondon and spend the Perez money on that midfield maestro!?

    Cheers, Micky, that’s a good article. By heck, though, it’s scathing on James Tavernier.

    “James Tavernier, club captain, is touted as an asset, but has been found out consistently at a higher level than the Scottish Premiership and a significant portion of the Rangers support would question his place in their team, let alone an English Premier League club’s”

    This is a guy who has 36 goals from 150-odd appearances from defence for Rangers, including 3 goals and 5 assists in 11 appearances so far this season. As for being ‘found out consistently at a higher level’, he hasn’t played at a higher level since he left NUFC in 2014, so what does that mean?

    If the bluenoses don’t want him, I’d have him back in a heartbeat, he’s the perfect fit for our right wing back role.

    Do you actually read the links you post ?
    That article mainly shows that the Rangers board
    is made up of shady characters who will not put
    their hands in their pockets.
    Rangers tried to bump Ashley for a £10M loan he gave them
    He got slated for the security he acquired to secure it but he
    has been proven to have been astute in doing it.

    He’s played 16 times in the Europa League for Rangers and not looked too good

    I see the unfair and unbalanced poster is spouting BS again.

    He makes Ashley look honest.

    Someone asked earlier why Sheffield United are doing so well. Perhaps the answer, like Leicester City, is a sense of passion due to stability and confidence in its owner.

    We’re seeing Leicester City flying high because, I believe, it has an owner who’s committed to the club, seems to be well liked and supports and backs its manager. That feeling of well-being can only lead to confidence and thus success on the field.

    Compare Leicester City’s owner and his support with Ashley……. Need I say more?

    Rotunda -Bills, the negativity is generated by one man.

    You have just absolutely proved my point about bollocks replies to sensible posts.

    If I am accused of anything on here it is for not being negative about everything connected with NUFC.

    And then you make the stupidest of posts to say ‘the negativity is generated by one man’ and obviously you mean me.

    The absolute last thing I am on this blog is negative, you and your cronies Jail, lesh and hibbit take the crown for that.

    You buffoon.

    Ron Knee @9 – Good highlights them – first time I’ve watched nufc ones and it’s good the way they mix it with the BBC Newcastle commentary.
