Will Newcastle Replenish With Youth In January?


Newcastle have been linked with quite a few teenagers lately as they may look to add to their development ranks this winter. Recently there’s been reports that Newcastle are tracking Portuguese 16-year-old Matchoi Djalo as well as Carlisle’s 17-year-old center-back Jarrad Branthwaite.

But there’s been much more than just those two over the past few months. Our hope is that Newcastle start to bring in a few youngsters to help strengthen the Academy.

During their Q&A yesterday, the Athletic’s Chris Waugh was asked explicitly about buying some 17-20 year-olds for the Academy. Chris confirmed that some money has been set aside for the development squad.

Newcastle have set money aside to sign players for their development squad, and I know they’ve been watching a few youngsters in England, Scotland, and France, so it wouldn’t surprise me if they made a move either in January or the summer for some of those.

It seems that the number of youngsters that Newcastle have been tracking has risen over the past few months, so hopefully, we can get some in this January.

Bruce has stated that he wants more players in the reserves that are close to the first team. So it could very well be a strategy to get some of these teenagers in over the next few transfer windows.

We think it would be a sound policy to bring in at least 3-4 top youngsters every year. It was even a plan that Kevin Keegan endorsed this past September as the best way for Newcastle to progress going forward. This is part of what Keegan had to say:

“I think this time it has to start with youngsters coming through again. It has to be a different way.

“You won’t get big-name players to Newcastle because the really big ones will now go to Man United, Man City or Liverpool, Tottenham or Arsenal or Chelsea, and then after that you are pitching in with the others.”

This summer the club brought in three free-agents in Ludwig Francillette, Kyle Scott, and Jake Turner for the Under-23s. However, we would like to see a lot more come in over the next few windows.

    I might have singled out certain players for criticism but we all do don’t we? Nobody’s immune from that. But I don’t recall lambasting the players or the team per se.

    So that’s a lie.

    I have thought we were going to get beaten a couple of times and lamented our lack of quality to find we scraped a win instead. But I have never willed us to lose or celebrated a loss.

    So that’s a lie.

    I used to be a ST holder and kept it going through relegations. I don’t just follow us when we are winning and then not bother when we lose and I haven’t been a Fairweather or plastic fan.

    So that’s a lie.

    I don’t hang around the blog as part of a cartel of miseries waiting to pounce on losses and say I told you so just for the sake of it.

    So that’s a lie.

    Nothing like just avoiding everything I wrote. No worries its there for all to see.
    and this:
    “SD you are a hypocrite and I have replied to you earlier. The likes of you wud not allow discussions about rafa and that’s where I christened you and your ilk as the Taliban”

    Completely untrue, I have always allowed discussion and joined in on a good discussion. But please don’t try to explain why the difference in your attitude with Bruce…..we all know.

    Geordietom – you don’t like free speech? Take a trip to North Korea. Apparently here you can be likened to a member of the Taliban. That’s not insulting is it? An organisation widely accredited with multiple atrocities but hey it’s all-in the spirit of fun. And it’s coming from the guy who nearly spat his mash out when I said “don’t have a thrombo” to him in the style of Austin Powers. 😐

    I already wrote what I needed to, you consistantly bashed Rafa and now support Bruce for the same thing all behind a veil of you liked Rafa. I have showed you your own words…..Its blatant hypocrisy, which I already knew. Now its there for everyone to see.

    I don’t need to debate Rafa…..he is gone. Just don’t claim to be fair and balanced when obviously you are not.

    Jib,
    Completely different topic that, but hey ho.

    I think most who venture on here regularly were pretty certai. You had been banned, so I’m not sure what your issue with her clarifying and making a statement of fact is, I think you should probably focus more on not doing what got you banned in the first place.

    If you don’t like people knowing you are banned, then don’t get yourself banned.

    I can tell you that your search will be fruitless. For someone who is so sure I have said these things, yet can’t produce anything, is making you look a bit stupid.

    Now you are asking for help to find something that doesn’t exist
