Senior Quartet Start And Two New Academy Signings Make Debuts For U23s



At his press conference last Friday, Steve Bruce announced that Ciaran Clark, Paul Dummett, and Matty Longstaff would get a run out for the U23s against Fulham today. The three had returned to full training during the international break.

The trio all started for Chris Hogg’s U23s this afternoon but were also joined by Achraf Lazaar and new signing Rodrigo Vilca.

Fulham took the lead with a 27th-minute goal by Jean Pierre Tiehi. At the half, Matty Longstaff was replaced by John Oliver. The Athletic’s Chris Waugh is reporting that it was pre-planned that Matty would only play the first-half.

Paul Dummett and Ciaran Clark were pulled after an hour. It was a U23 debut for another new boy as Bradley Cross came on for Clark.

Striker Yannick Toure leveled the match with a 79th-minute goal. Young midfielder Stan Flaherty, who also got the assist on the first goal, added another in the 87th minute with a strike from the edge of the penalty box.

Flaherty, a former Arsenal Academy product, joined last January after a successful trial. He also scored a stunning free-kick against Burnley last month.

This was a good come from behind win for the U23s and for the trio of Clark, Dummett, and Longstaff who got a good run out. Achraf Lazaar also played the entire match.

    great quote from sky

    “We won’t be sharing the PPV numbers as they are commercially sensitive.”
    I bet they are, more likely a huge embarrassment for sky and there american owners comcast,

    Newcastle fans are just incredible they really are. We should have a Geordie fan as PM as we get shit done.

    The premier league must be sick as foot and surely wish they approved the deal now. We have been an absolute thorn in the side of the league since the Saudi pullout and every fan should be proud.

    It’s good to see some of the media picking up on the efforts of the fans with the donations. Not a peep from SSN was there? Truly shown where there loyalty lies

    The big hope now is that other fans from other clubs pick up on it and do the same

    I have to say the club really deserve plaudits for their work in recent years, and lately they’ve been pulling out the stops to do some good things for very worthy causes. It’s been impressive to see how they’ve put real work in for the benefit of others

    The displays of football have been carefully managed to ensure that not only are fans, including the beleaguered season ticket holders, spared the discomfort of further financial loss by paying twice to see the same “entertainment” but that good causes like the food bank get the benefit of cash that would otherwise have been seriously wasted.

    I also think it’s fantastic how we are the leading club for academy goalkeeping coaching giving top flight full on coaching sessions almost every week, Premier League training of the highest level, none of your rubbish.

    And of course, in these trying times the club has been fully committed to providing jobs for medical personnel.treating our long list of injured players thanks to Steve’s diligent training techniques. Apparently we are a leader in reconstructive surgery and metal skeletal implants. Marvellous.

    I’m looking forward to Steve Bruce’s next press conference where he presents his vision for the new football age. That will be the one which starts with the question –

    “So, Mr Bruce – first of all, do you know what year this is?”

    It’ll be riveting. 😀

    Every single match our goal is peppered all day long. Every single championship and league one side will fancy playing us. That’d how bad we are. Opposition have 162 shots at our goal. Shocking.

    Speechless at how bad Bruce is.

    The thrashing we recieved at boro in the last friendly before this season began – 5-1 defeat,-should have been a warning sign to Bruce.

    Now we are getting a hammering average every 4 games.

    Newcastle might have a pathetic owner and an equally pathetic manager, i feel embarrassed refereeing to that prick Bruce as a manager to be honest, but Newcastle have world class fans, its so humbling to see these amazing fans donating thier hard earned money to food banks and charity shops and other worth while causes, even though i live in Ireland i know most of these people are just working class people and will not be very wealthy or flush with money, but they have huge and kind hearts, i fee so lucky and so privileged to support such an amazing club, with such amazing and kind fans, take a bow all you geordies as your all world class.

    Bruce is lucky the stadiums are empty. I’d say by the time fans get back in maybe next April he’ll be sacked.

    Liverpool and Manchester areas both struggling with the covid pandemic but some there have not helped the situation with their party on mode. Just hope they get themselves sorted.
    Their football clubs are tarnished because of their “one less than magnificent seven” tag and also recent events and their American franchise ideas for the Premiership.

    Newcastle fans speak volumes with their generosity of spirit and mostly mindful approach to the covid crisis while dealing with the cess pit of the EPL’s handling of the club takeover.

    Canny as the day is long

    Wasn’t Tony Blair a Newcastle supporter? Make of that what you will. I don’t talk religion or politics 🙂
