Newcastle Winger Expresses His Frustration With Loan Situation


Jacob Murphy scored his second goal for Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday against Blackburn. It was his first goal for the Owls since his debut against Fulham in August. However, it came during another late cameo appearance for the Championship club.

Since Jacob was pulled at half-time against Preston on August 24th, he has only started one match in the league. Those lack of starts has spanned across two managers, and Murphy still has not been able to get a steady stream of starts while on loan.

In early September, Garry Monk was appointed as the new manager replacing caretaker Lee Bullen. It was Monk who gave Murphy his last start on September 14th, but Jacob was replaced after 60 minutes in the 0-2 win at Huddersfield and has been limited to late-game substitute appearances ever since.

However, this past weekend he finally got on the score sheet once again after an 83rd-minute strike against Blackburn. He had just come on in the 70th minute for his first appearance in three league games.

Jacob Murphy– scoring against Blackburn

Garry Monk has preferred 26-year-old Adam Reach on the right-wing over Jacob Murphy since being appointed. Reach can really play all over the pitch but has settled on the right under Monk lately.

Jacob Murphy will have to fight to regain a place in the starting eleven, and maybe his goal this past weekend will help his cause.

Speaking in the Sheffield Star, the 24-year-old expressed his frustration with being out of the side for such a long stretch:

“It is tough, but you’ve just got to keep grinding it out.

“I’ve been staying focused but it is tough, there’s two other brilliant wingers here and since Garry Monk came in, they’ve been playing really well. If you’re playing well like that then you don’t change the team.

“I’ve been grinding it out and my job is to give the manager a headache. Hopefully, I can keep on doing that.”

Consistency has plagued Jacob throughout his career, and that has followed him on his two loan spells since joining Newcastle in 2017. He was in and out of the West Brom side last season on loan as well.

However, Jacob seems to have the right attitude as he knows it’s up to him to keep plugging away to force Garry Monk into a tough decision. Jacob also expressed his understanding of his situation at Sheffield Wednesday:

“I’m enjoying it, but I want to play games. From time to time you’re not going to be in the team. When you’ve got two wingers in front of you that are doing a good job, then you have to wait your turn and be patient with it.”

While it is highly doubtful that Murphy will ever play for Newcastle again, he can still have a solid career in football. Right now, he is in the shop window for his next club.

His current deal ends in 2021, and he is likely to either be sold or go out on loan again next year. He is going to have to show dramatic improvement if he aspires to get back into a Premier League side in the future.

    That is very interesting, considering the timing – presumably he’d go straight back into the U23s as we don’t need a CB in the first team squad at the moment and as he hasn’t been named in our squad he won’t be eligible until January anyway.

    I wonder if this is the reason for Academygate? Redfearn didn’t want him as he wants to bring the younger kids along, but Liam Bramley wanted to sign him to help bolster results? It could well be.

    Online Guy, cheers mate, much appreciated. That’s this evening taken care of, then.

    Hi Rob

    If just looked at the match for you to check it was still on the site ..the quality is usually HD if your playing catch up and forget to record the game, its a reliable site..at moment though it’s lagging and quality is not so good .. might be my connection at moment .

    To enlarge the screen you would normally just tap the screen box icon bottom right of picture but just now that would not work.. it will if you use finger and thumb on screen though it will then enlarge .. Match was like something you would witness back in the 70’s great to watch and as usual nervy for us late on .

    Have a good evening Rob.

    A lot of you have said “it’s ok now G2, we have a 2 goal scorer in the squad…. we’ll be fine now.” Well, it’s worth thinking aboot. And Gru is a fine natural scorer no doubt aboot it. So he might end up with 4 or 5 goals. But what aboot wor forwards? Shouldn’t they be involved at the pointy end as well?

    I’d like us to get to the bottom of this Redfearn thing as well. Why is he gone? What was his philosophy? Did he want to give younger players a chance if older lads weren’t cutting it? We need to know where the club is taking us….

    And, do we really have a pointy end? Where is wor pointy end? It’s not supposed to be in the midfield and the back four is it? Is this an unusual place to put wor pointy end? Or will it catch on? Will other clubs adopt the no pointy end needed policy? Stay tuned….

    Are we focusing on getting Linty Joe to get more shots away? Does he like being a forward? Is he interested in scoring? Possibly he has a bigger future in stamp collecting?….. It’s all up in the air right now lads……

    G2,
    We all know which way the club is taking us, St Max will be sold at a profit and Joelinton will more than likely still be here, however, they won’t by a Tielmans, Preat or a Perez even with the money, they’ll take another gamble until we have another team full of players that can’t be sold for various reasons or that are desperate to leave.

    @ Jail for Ashley, you seem to continue your theme that st max will be sold and that history is telling you this. Sorry but who have we sold in the past few years. Perez who, you didn’t seem to rate we got 30m for, I’m struggling who else we sold. Am I missing something ? Perhaps we haven’t sold enough players like colback, Saivet and that is why we have a full squad to the point of overflowing.

    Oldgit1,
    Firstly show me a post where I’ve said I didn’t rate Perez and secondly we haven’t sold any players, bar Perez of course because we’ve had a threadbare squad and most of the players were bought in the Championship. Are you honestly suggesting the club has changed it’s ways.

    Every decent player has been sold bar the ones that would cost more to replace, ie the ageing disinterested Collocini who was kept being given a new deal despite being desperate to get away.

    If Rondon had of done to his leg what Gomes done on Sunday a year ago, we’d have been relegated, that’s how threadbare the squad is.

    In two seasons time St Max will not be offered a new deal if he is still here and looking good.

    Re Stefan O’Connor, I thought that he was belatedly retained already, I’ve always thought he was one for the near future and was surprised when he was put on the non retained list.

    I can’t see Joelinton being sold for a profit the way he’s shaping at the minute.
    Not mentioning the fact that nobody seems to know what we paid for him and why and on whose recommendation.

    I think the club have tried to sell Colback but he has limpet like abilities and will not budge. Saivet as we mentioned earlier is an enigma who seems to be happy and hopeful that we might one day have a manager who might appreciate him.

    This summer should be very interesting, they painted them selves in to a corner. Players like Manquillo, Yedlin, loads of them actually who should have been replaced are now in the situation where their contracts run out or they go in to their last years leaving them free to see what’s on offer elsewhere. I remember Rafa saying about them not offering Ritchie a new deal, they’ll probably only want to offer him a two year deal and somewhere else might want to give him three, he could be tied down now, as I say it should be very interesting.

    If St Max does start finding the back of the net and refines his game ala Raheem Sterling then he could be worth a ridiculous amount.

    Struggling which other good players were sold?

    Caroll?
    Wijnaldum?
    Sissoko?
    Perez?
    Mitrovic?
    Thauvin?
    Cabella?
    Cabaye?

    Most of which are better than what we have now, you could argue some of the French lads weren’t playing to their potential while with us but they were still great players.

    Wonder if we might ever see an EPL club like say, ManC getting a 35 point penalty for breaking the FPP rules.

    That would be amusing!

    If Corbyn gets in with his huge renationalisation programme then unfortunately players like St Max could be confiscated from the club and nationalised.

    We’ve had this conversation before, all clubs sell players, are Leicester fans complaining. No, they’re doing it right, a couple of hiccups with managers but back on track, do you think Puel would have been sacked for the job he done at Leicester? He’d have been given an eight year deal.

    I feel like Willems is falling under the radar a bit.

    Been our player of the season so far in my opinion. He’s a goal threat from defence and more importantly he creates chances for others. Ritchie isn’t coming straight back into the side but he’s not a bad sub to bring on.

    Sign him permanently already! Exactly what we’ve needed for what seems like forever.

    Jail……… This is a serious matter and not intended to provoke anyone. Corbyn is on a mission to stop big companies and conglomerates from owning anything as he prefers everything to be state owned and controlled.
    This includes football clubs where he intends to commandeer clubs and players to bring them in line with his Marxist agenda.

    The owner has spent 80M on players this year, do you think Brucie will be sacked if he finishes 17th this year, or next or even the year after that. No he wont, the owner hasn’t spent 80M on players to improve us, he’s done it so he can trouser the cash if they’re sold for a decent profit. There’s 30M Taurus for Perez, if it’s not spent in January we’ll be told it’s for wages etc with some clowns on here saying clubs don’t run themselves you know.
