‘Summed Up My Season So Far’ – Midfielder Talks About A Season Of Setbacks


Sean Longstaff spoke to BBC Newcastle last night and touched on the unfortunate red card he received for his ill-timed tackle on Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves. Matthew Raisbeck has tweeted some of Sean’s comments.

Sean’s tackle on Neves was reckless; however there was no malice, and the red card was somewhat harsh in our opinion.

Sean had been enjoying a four-game stretch in the team after suffering an ankle injury in training prior to the Liverpool match. It kept him out of two games. He made his return in the Leicester City fiasco, which saw Isaac Hayden get sent off for a bad tackle.

He was able to play with his younger brother Matty in the next three matches, which saw the lads turn around their bad run of form.

Now Sean’s going to face a spell on the sidelines with his suspension. He will be eligible to return when Manchester City come to St James Park on November 30th. That’s a game that Newcastle can definitely get something from like they did last year.

Sean just has to continue to work hard in what has been a disappointing season for him personally. He hasn’t reached the heights of last season except in the Manchester United win.

Though he certainly has the ability and the right attitude to persevere and overcome his latest setback. We also have to remember that he suffered a season-ending knee injury in March which has contributed to his slow start this season.

    Nufc83 am I succumbing to posting rubbish by pointing out that we are in fact patently a selling club with a plan to simply survive and be transfused with TV cash so the profits go out the side door in clouds of accounting magic? Perhaps it’s posts like this that need to be addressed –

    “the general opinion at the time of some of those high profit sales was that they were good business”

    Whose “general opinion”? Come on Jane – you saying that “general opinion” was positive about Given, Milner, Merino, Ba Carroll etc was “hey good business, made some good money let’s go buy some great players and push on for the title” type good business? I think by “good business” you mean for your beau Mikey don’t you?

    Those were viewed as good business and would’ve been had the money been reinvested in strengthening the team but yes you’re correct it went straight I to slugboys sky rocket.
