Loan Update – Five Magpies In Action For Their Loan Clubs This Weekend



Matty Longstaff was handed his second straight start by former Magpie Stephen Glass on Saturday. The midfielder played 66 minutes in Aberdeen’s 2-0 loss at Motherwell before being replaced by striker Jay Emmanuel-Thomas.

Matty provided a couple of key passes on the afternoon. However, The Dons just couldn’t find a breakthrough despite having 75% of the possession and launching 20 shots. Motherwell scored a goal in either half to take the three points. The defeat drops Aberdeen to 6th in The Scottish Premiership.

Kelland Watts continued his string of starts for Wigan, who have been undefeated since the defender joined on loan last month. The Latics downed Rodrigo Vilca and Doncaster by a score of 2-1 behind a brace from former Manchester United youth product Will Keane.

It was Watts’s seventh start in all competitions. He was again in fine form completing 87% of his 79 passes. He also launched two shots on target. The win pushes Wigan to second in the League One table just behind Sunderland.

Vilca came on as a second-half substitute for his first league appearance with Doncaster. The midfielder got over 30 minutes on the pitch but had little impact on the game completing just 6 passes. Doncaster have just 1 point from their opening 6 matches and sit at the bottom of the League One table.

Lewis Cass made just his second start for Port Vale in their 2-1 win at Swindon Town. The defender made 3 interceptions along with 2 tackles however was a little wayward with his passing.

Two goals, including one in the 81st minute, from Ben Garrity grabbed all three points for The Valiants. They move to 11th in the League Two table.

Tom Allan made his league debut for Morton Greenock in a 1-0 defeat at Kilmarnock. The 21-year-old was deployed on the left-wing and lasted 83 minutes before being substituted for Jimmy Knowles. Rory McKenzie scored the game’s only goal in the 75th minute.

Oisin McEntee, fresh of Republic of Ireland U21 duty, was an unused substitute in this match.

Jake Turner was also an unused substitute in Colchester’s 3-2 win at Barrow on Friday. The goalkeeper had made his debut and played well in a 1-0 against Gillingham in the EFL Trophy a week ago.

    Well I was wrong with my predicted 9-0 defeat but gutted that I was as that spineless cabbage might just might of resigned so onwards to Friday and leeds I’d settle on a 3-0 defeat but 4 or 5 would I think be enough for him to go
    For 5 Fred must retain his place in goal as he’s bloody useless
    MARCHING ALL TOGETHER
    BRUCE OUT

    From the BBC site:

    ‘Arsenal are looking at Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers and Nice boss Christophe Galtier as possible options if they decide to replace Mikel Arteta.’

    Meanwhile, Mike Ashley……

    Jane’s just being controversial and must be feeling a tad starved of hearts for her earlier, banal posts.

    I’ve neither been watching or listening to the Liverpool Leeds game but might I be right in guessing that Leeds’ve been denied a pelanty?

    Liverpool getting the rub of the green from the ref for sure.

    Can only see Leeds beating us, we don’t usually do well against teams that press all over the pitch – I’m guessing we’ll be rock bottom by next Sat evening…

    Bruce won’t resign and Charney won’t sack him. Best we can hope for is he goes on holiday until June.

    I always thought that VAR was a tool that refs turned to if they were uncertain about or players appealed a decision.

    It seems there’s some faceless person sitting at the end of a wire watching a match and flagging up incidents that the game ref might have missed or chosen to ignore.

    Therein lies the potential for external influences giving advantage to certain sides.

    As it stands, VAR is wide open to question.

    In that post match video Brucie did look as if he was about to explode into a violent outburst. Looks like he is losing it.
    Looked really angry.

    There’s one or two one here that are angry fellows. They need to calm down and take their meds.

    I hate to see an injury like that to a young lad but the red card was harsh – as their legs twisted together. However from a nufc perspective Struijk won’t be playing next Friday!

    Watching Leeds vs Liverpool, you just know we’re in for a tonking on Friday night. Not quite good enough to beat Liverpool but far too good for us. Unless Bruce goes I fear a record thrashing for us this season.

    Indeed exploding cabbages are a rare occurrence.

    We have volatile folk on here who display their anger when popular opinion leaves them (left) behind.

    Lord lefty of the blog will never sprout wings – meds and anger management are key. Hoy in some breathing exercises as well.

    You got to laugh at Bruce bragging about us training all week
    1 He wasn’t there.
    2 Isn’t that a normal thing what most clubs do.
    3 Was he actually clued in on what went on in said training.

    Interesting to see what the press do following Brucies rant at the Chronicle. Will they say the gloves are off and enter into a free for all battle.

    No chance – they’ll not pursue further the Chronlcles line of questioning.

    Just watched the Steve Bruce press conference there, very very uncomfortable viewing that was, his whole demeanour and body langauge tells you that is a man right on the edge, for his own sanity and mental health alone, and his family he should walk away, we all know the fella was never good enough to manage in the premier league, but no self respecting human being wishes him any harm. I hope the Newcastle fan base can unite in the very near future, and come up with ways and means to make it totally untenable for Ashley and that other little insignificant toerag Charnley to remain at our club.

    magicmac good evening my friend i hope you and yours are well.

    if you think Bruce was in a bad way on Saturday afternoon god help him if he puts a bad performance in on Friday night at St James,
    it will be like The Colosseum with Bruce being feed to the lions and the crowd baying for his blood,

    Bruce is himself contributing to the stress and mental anguish of 10s of thousands of supporters at a very conservative estimate.
    Ironically if Bruce was to leave because of some sort of breakdown, the world would be a mentally healthier place.
