Bruce Calls Up Three Youngsters To First-Team Training

Newcastle United have released some images of today’s training session ahead of our next friendly at Doncaster on Friday. Some positive news is that Joelinton was involved after being removed from Sunday’s match at York City on Sunday with a thigh problem.

The Brazilian will be assessed before Friday’s match and hopefully, can play a part. There were no sightings of Miguel Almiron, Emil Krafth, or Fabian Schar in the photos. So it doesn’t look like they’ve returned from their rest period after international duty.

To make up the numbers, Bruce has called up three youngsters to the first team. They are midfielder Jack Young, center-back Oisín McEntee, and forward Tom Allan. So it’ll be interesting to see if either of them makes the squad for Doncaster.

Tom Allan made his Newcastle debut in the FA Cup third-round replay against Rochdale in 2020. The local lad provided the assist on Joelinton’s goal. He’s coming off an unsuccessful loan spell with Accrington Stanley in League One making just four appearances.

He was ultimately recalled in January and he resumed his impressive goal-scoring form for the U23s. Allan is entering the final year of his contract and will turn 22 in September.

Jack Young is a 20-year-old midfielder who also ended up being recalled from a loan in January. Young joined Tranmere Rovers in League Two and played in three of their first four matches. However, the sacking of manager Mike Jackson saw his appearances dry up.

Oisín McEntee is a central defender who was born in New York. He’s in the Republic of Ireland international set-up and was recently called up for their U21s. He turned 20 at the start of the year and has been a consistent presence in Chris Hogg’s U23s

Dan Langley will likely get the nod once again in goal with four first-team goalkeepers unavailable. For the York City match, Bruce called up 16-year-old Max Thompson as the back-up. He also has Jake Turner and Will Brown in the ranks. Turner started the match at Harrogate Town on Sunday

    The way the CAT claim’s worded, it suggests that Ashley’s going for the injuction plus compen etc if the EPL hasn’t already approved the O&D application and PIF are still onboard, or more compen if PIF have walked away by the time the case is heard.

    He seems to be covering all bases.

    But, looking at the CAT diary, it seems to be full for a while, 2022, unless they have space set aside for fast-track hearings.

    Unless EPL cave in or PIF walk, it’s gonna be a long haul.

    Oh, and as you’re planning an uprising……

    Just so you don’t put yer foot in it when your on Tyneside…..

    If a bloke was referring to his wife, he’d say ‘our lass’. Somebody else’s wife’d be ‘their lass’

    Hope that help

    Surely “either” is used with only 2 options, not 3.
