Four Newcastle Loan Lads Get Starts This Afternoon As Midfielder Bags His First Goal



Freddie Woodman made another start for Swansea City at home against Millwall. It was the 17th straight league start for the 22-year-old. However, it is a disappointing 0-1 loss for Swansea who conceded on a 65th-minute free-kick from Jed Wallace. Swansea are now sixth in the Championship clinging to the final play-off position on goal difference.

Winger Jacob Murphy was in the starting eleven for the second straight match for Sheffield Wednesday’s 2-1 defeat at West Brom. Murphy played the entire match but the Owls drop to ninth in the Championship and are without a win in their last four league matches.

Twenty-two-year-old Dan Barlaser made another start for Rotherham United at MK Dons. Rotherham went down 2-0 within 13 minutes. However, Barlaser led the comeback with a 66th-minute goal which was his first goal for the Millers. Freddie Ladepo added two more for Rotherham as they claimed a 2-3 win. They climb to fourth in the League One table where Sunderland are mired in tenth after only managing a 1-1 draw at home against Coventry.

Rolando Aarons was back on the bench for Wycombe Wanderers after missing out on their 2-0 win at Tranmere earlier this week. Aarons came on in the 75th minute for Paul Smyth. Wycombe won a late penalty for a 1-0 victory at home against Doncaster. Wycombe remain top of League One and are five points clear of second-place Ipswitch Town.

Left-back Liam Gibson started for the fourth match in a row in Grimsby Town’s 2-0 loss at Northampton. Grimsby extend their streak of winless matches to 5. They sacked manager Michael Jolley last week due to the recent string of poor results. Former Newcastle midfielder Kevin Nolan has been linked as a possible candidate for the job.

Goalkeeper Nathan Harker was back on the bench for Blyth Spartans. The 21-year-old has not featured much for Blyth in what has been a very disappointing loan spell for the youngster.

Elias Sorensen was not involved in Carlisle’s matchday squad due to an illness as reported in the News and Star. Carlisle United drew 0-0 at home against Cambridge in assistant coach Gavin Skelton’s second match in charge.

Kelland Watts was taken off with an injury in Stevenage’s FA Cup match against Peterborough a few weeks ago. He has still not recovered and missed their 0-0 draw at Walsall this afternoon.

    amazing stat given at half time. since the 2nd world war there has only been 1 European player with no Argentinian routes that has played in Argentina whereas there are currently 1800 Argentinian players playing abroad.

    Moonraker,
    I’ve screamed for VAR for years (or similar, they’ve had it in Cricket, Tennis and Rugby ) they seriously need to do something with it, luckily for me that Sterling goal never affected my points this weekend, but how come Sterlings shoulder was offside while the other guys hand wasn’t, yet a few weeks ago someone else’s hand was offside despite a hands not being able to score a goal yet the foot was wasn’t, at the moment it’s a joke and making a shambles of it’s importance!

    Maxi has a couple of assists… Most importantly he should have about 5 goals too, but again… that’ll come I’ve no doubt… He’s a class act.

    Like yourself Bobby, I watch these two young lads and see some lovely football, when it happens it will open floodgates, not so confident with Joelinton going on pound for pound value

    Lacelles, Maxi has zero assists as of the last match, the commentator said it, and he didnt get any in that match either. It’s hard to believe but neither of them have assists or goals to their names.

    Also I’m not having a go but its kinda silly to say: most importantly he should have at least 5 goals.

    Really its: most importantly he has no goals.

    It’s easy to say someone should have goals but you need to look at the weaknesses that prevented him from scoring those goals he could have had. Some if which were VERY EASY chances.

    VAR is ruining games now. Admittedly it didn’t affect the result at Manchester tonight but it’s only a matter of time before a league title or cup final is wrongly awarded. They need to use the technology sensibly!

    Well, I enjoyed that. River Plate are the loosers. 😀
    Rob, I’m not saying sell now am I? The goals will come, then the floodgates will open. They’re quality players and luck hasn’t been with them – especially Miggy. Luck changes. When goals and assists arrive, added to their overall game, they’ll be priceless. Plenty time for the change to come. They’ve only just started. It’s a big step up remember but quality will tell eventually. I’m looking forward to watching us when it does click for these lads, we’re going to be an entertaining side. Didn’t think I’d be saying that in the summer, but it’s definitely a funny old game.

    Miggy and St Max have bags of genuine pace and skill and they certainly run around, while Joey is good in the air and is showing signs that he can be the target man we need, but without goals and assists they won’t make it here much less at a senior club.

    I agree goals will come, but I don’t quite share the optimism that they’ll come in large numbers. It takes a certain skillset and mindset to finish consistently at this level. Just look at Gayle and Muto as examples, both have decent career goalscoring records and neither can effectively cut it in this league.

    They have plenty of company too. There have been hundreds of very very good players who couldn’t produce consistently in the final third in EPL matches and have been moved on.

    At this stage we are very much still in a hopeful stage with our front three, rather than a confident one.

    Bruce is talking them up, as he has to, but the stats don’t lie.

    See jib he doesn’t even have a single assist. In a combined 30 games neither him or Miggy have a goal or an assist. That’s kinda crazy. But you obviously checked already because you didnt reply.

    Bob I’m not saying you said sell. I’m saying I’m pretty sure no one is gonna come buying them this year at least. Based on the fact they cant seem to score and they can’t get an assist between them in 30 combined games.

    I’m well aware they have neither, but we wouldn’t be a win away from going into the top half without them. And that’s without assists or goals. It’s not like they haven’t created chances, we just haven’t converted them.
    The goal against Manure involved both players in the build up.
    Miggy has missed chances that yes, he should’ve scored, but players get these mental blocks during their career. The only way to get past them is keep plugging away until it happens. Then history tells us once past the block, players go on to score freely.
    Remember even Shearer? In the run up to the Euro’s he couldn’t buy a goal, but England stuck with him and the goals returned. He said himself he thought he was never going to score again.
    In the MLS season, I think Miggy had 12 goals and 14 assists, so we know he’s capable.
    Despite the lack of either, I wouldn’t drop them. They already give so much to the team and we’d be a lot poorer without them playing. It’s not like we’re blessed with options either.

    Rob, plenty managers would take a gamble with them mate. They’re not for sale anyway, but add goals and assists to their game and we’ll struggle to keep them.
    I’m not saying they’ll ever be 20 goals a season playing out wide, but I’ll happily take the stats Miggy had in the MLS. In fact, both players prefer to play the No10 role, so they’re out of position anyway.
    You need to use your imagination a bit. 🙂 Their current game, plus goals and assists makes them special players – and goals will come. Trust me, I’m a used car salesman. 😀

    Bob I like the way you put a positive spin on things, it’s better than the opposite, but I think you’re getting a tad carried away with them just yet tbf.
