‘Deserve A Statue For That’, ‘Love The Passion’ – Fans React To Youngster’s Tweet

In a derby for the younger Magpies, Newcastle’s U23s defeated Sunderland 2-0 yesterday at St James Park. Recent debutante Tom Allan scored yet again in the 2nd minute.

The 20-year-old was training with the first-team this week and must be impressing Steve Bruce with his performances for the U23s.

Nineteen-year-old forward Yannick Toure added a header to double the lead in the second half.

However, it ended on a bit of a contentious note as Elias Sorensen reacted to a strong challenge from Sunderland’s Jack Bainbridge. The resulting scuffle saw both players receive a straight red.

Sorensen went to Twitter after the game to express regret for his reaction and the resulting red card.

Many Newcastle fans responded to the 20-year-old’s message with encouragement while commending his passion.

Elias has a lot of work to do to make it at Newcastle. After a stellar first half with the U23s last season, where he scored 20 goals, he’s been recalled from two disappointing loan spells.

Before the game yesterday, he spoke about how he is still coming back to full fitness after playing so little during his loan at Carlisle.

“I feel like I’m nearly back to what I was before I went out on loan.

“I lost a bit of fitness when I went away and didn’t play as much as I wanted to, but I feel like I’m nearly back to full fitness.”

Elias still seems to be learning what it takes to be a professional footballer. It looks like he will be kept at the club for the remainder of the season.

Hopefully, he can find a loan move in the summer where he can get the first-team football he needs to progress.

    It’s not that often I’m on here at the same time as you (I’m usually catching up a day later)

    But I wanted to say massive respect for what you’re doing.
    There’s not too many that are prepared to ‘walk the walk’ like you do.

    Geordietom is that because you’re a gullible media victim or just complicit in the takeover optimism – lampooning saga? Hard to tell.

    Keep up the positivity!

    If nothing else it’s a change from the same old arguments or overly verbose monologues.

    Yes that’s it.

    If we don’t sit and just pick fights and then continue them indefinitely or want to take a little more positive outlook we must be thick.

    You can bitch and moan and feel helpless online.
    Or you can get out there and start making real connections.
    If we all make the same sound, the vibration intensifies and we change the tune of time.
    Make ashley out happen.
    You know its the change you crave.

    From earlier thread:
    Why the hell is Alex Bruce commenting about our players in training other than his dad is our manager by default!
    Not only that but I don’t think we need anyone to tell us he’s a top player!
    This club is broken; and we’ve got tw@ts like Jib defending the regime’s every move.
    As far as AC is concerned I think we all know why he was signed and it shows how they throw our money away with total disregard for a plan for success. Any fool could tell you AC is a crock and had been for years!

    There were many on here who said we’d never spend £20M on a kid from the MLS.

    An even bigger laugh came last January when it was reported we’d offered £40M for Joelinton.

    Both signed.

    All of the rumours about transfer aren’t true, at any club, but my point is that some of them are.

    The offer of £35M for Soumare was genuine, confirmed by his club. For you to suggest we only offered that because we knew he’d refuse to come is so biased it’s laughable.

    The £35M offered would seem to confirm the other strong rumour that Bruce was offered a kitty of £60M in January but preferred not to use unless he could get exactly the players he wanted.

    Seeing as we look reasonably safe from relegation there was no need to go blind panic and sign for the sake of it.

    You can sneer all you want, but your refusal to accept that the club can do anything positive and your continual negative spin on Bruce and the management makes your opinions totally predictable, and fatuous.

    And posters call me blinkered.

    The irony.
