Bruce To Take A Long Look At Magpie He’s Never Seen Play



Steve Bruce has called up some youngsters to train with the first team. He’s brought Tom Allan back into the fold along with a couple of local lads who’ve spent the better part of this season out on loan in Kelland Watts and Dan Barlaser.

Both Allan and Watts can play a part if needed during this season’s final stretch though Barlaser is ineligible.

Tom Allan made his Newcastle debut earlier this season in the 4-1 FA Cup win against Rochdale, where he provided a lovely assist on Joelinton’s goal.

Due to the Premier League relaxing the rule on players playing for only two clubs in a season, Watts can provide cover if need be. The 20-year-old has had successful loan spells at Stevenage and Macclesfield, both in League Two.


As for the 23-year-old Dan Barlaser, he’s had an outstanding season for League One’s Rotherham. The EFL recently canceled the remaining seasons for both League One and Two, which has seen Rotherham, who were in second place, get promoted to the Championship.

There were reports recently that Barlaser would be given a chance to win a place in next season’s squad. Steve Bruce touched on that after yesterday’s 2-0 friendly win over Hull City.

The Shields Gazette have published the following comments from Newcastle’s head coach about the Gateshead born midfielder:

“I was going to have another look in pre-season. We don’t even know when the next pre-season is going to be. I think it’s an ideal time to bring him into the squad.

“I’ve never seen Barlaser play. He’s had good reports down at Rotherham. Let’s give him the opportunity to train with the players and be part of us going forward.”

Barlaser grew into one of the best midfielders in League One this past season. It all began when he started getting a consistent run in Paul Warne’s team in mid-November.

It’s good news that three local lads will be getting a long look by Bruce in training. Hopefully, they continue to impress and improve so they have a chance of a future at their hometown club.

    are you an actual fan or what?? i’d said there was more to the NUST info yesterday than just the tweet but you can’t be bothered looking into it? I also mentioned NUST sent emails out to members stating this.

    I’ve never quite understood you so far on the blog and this baffles me even more

    Sorry about the repost but missed the luxury coach.
    I see the guy photographed taking a leak next to the memorial of the policeman killed at Parliament has been arrested.
    Apparently he handled himself into Essex police this morning.

    Jail,

    Why? Andrew Marr knows nowt. I don’t want speculation from journalists trying to sell a story, I want statements of fact from people who actually know something. As a fan, the endless empty speculation is doing my head in. Just journalists cashing in on us fans. They can all do one.

    Am I to take it that you wont believe there is a takeover until its gone through then? As there will be no official statement from anyone fitting that category until that point in fairness

    KV,
    Nobody is claiming he knew anything, he asked a question. It’s become obvious that the PL is waiting for a report from the WTO, he was interviewing a very senior WTO person, he wasn’t speculating at all. I’m more annoyed you said you couldn’t see how I arrived at my conclusion from what was said when you never even watched it yourself.

    There is as much point trying to convince KV that the takeover is real, with the PL and awaiting approval…

    As there is trying to convince left wing wokes that Churchill saved this country, and Europe, from occupation and rule by the Nazis.

    Total waste of time and effort.

    STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
    NUFC Supporters Trust
    Dear member,

    The Newcastle United Supporters Trust attended the latest Premier League Network Meeting earlier this week organised by the Football Supporters Association, and in attendance was Bill Bush, an Executive Director at the Premier League.

    It was also confirmed to the Trust that the potential takeover is still not completed but ongoing. The Premier League stressed to the Trust their ownership test is stricter than many are lead to believe.

    * Almost 97% of our members are in favour of the proposed takeover
    * NUST has discussed the takeover situation with numerous media outlets, locally, nationally, and internationally.

    Thank you for reading.

    Board
    NUFC Trust
    STAY UP TO DATE

    Hope this helps.

    Bill’s son,

    The red army defeated the Nazis (and the Japanese) Britain and the Yanks helped out, but Churchill was not the reason the Nazis lost the war. Wothout the red army we wouldn’t have stood a chance. Can’t admit that though as they were commies. Better to pretend it was us and America.

    The rewriting of history on this one is obscene. This poll should tell you everything:

    Tsunki and Co have decreed that the only evidence in a companies house move. The WTO, Amnesty, Cengiz, the wsj, Andrew Marr and everyone else, including us, has been duped. There may not even be a football club called nufc for all we know.”

    Is that you “trying hard” Munster? That’ll teach me for setting my expectations too high. I’d love to know who my “Co” is though, didn’t know I had one. 😐

    Jail,

    In what way has it “become obvious” that this is what the PL are waiting on? They have their own team for performing fit and proper person’s tests and would have the same right to request access to the same exact same info as the WTO on this. I can’t see any reason they would wait.

    Mund,

    KV said he didn’t see the relevance in the WTO man’s take on the Saudi’s alleged pirating as being a worthwhile statement on the purchase of NUFC. As such, he didn’t bother watching it. I think that’s a fair statement. And you have responded as if he’d said something really offensive. Sounds like you and others are using any excuse to have a go at him. Just my opinion of course. Tell me I’m wrong.

    WWSBRD,

    I’m not saying I don’t believe there is a takeover. I believe it’s possible it could happen, but also possible it could not happen. I’m not in the business of predicting the future. I’m just saying I do not know either way as there has been no proof.

    Lots of people may challenge this deal in court, why is not important, everybody involved is being very careful to dot their i’s and cross their t’s.
    They will not act until the “Draft” has been signed off as official. End of. Period.

    Whoops
    Those 7 thousand vessels that left the south coast 76 years ago this month
    must have been Russian !!!!
    The 160,000 troops that made up the invasion force were cunningly disguised by Stalin
    as Canadians Americans and Brits
    And Enola Gay must have flown from Vladivostock

    The guys I mentioned earlier were working on the Wallsend and Shields digs at the time.

    You mentioned being moved off a dig due to it suffering financial difficulties and it’s such a shame that access to history is being lost. Sadly, priorities aren’t equally shared but that’s life.
