Magpie Hopes To Be Involved Against Spurs After Run-out For The U23s



The Newcastle U23s picked up a 4-0 win over Birmingham City in their Premier League Cup match on Monday evening. A trialist got the scoring started with a goal in the 8th minute. Elliot Anderson added two second-half goals while Dylan Stephenson continued his hot streak with his 8th goal of the season.

Jonjo Shelvey started the match and got 79 minutes under his belt before being replaced by Jack Young. Shelvey launched a long ball early in the match that the trialist was able to bring down and put into the back of the net for the opening goal.

After the match, Shelvey spoke to NUFC TV and was asked about his recovery from the injury that has sidelined him since the season’s opening match. Shelvey revealed that he hopes to be involved for Spurs on Sunday as he said the following:

“I just assume that we are going to sit down tomorrow and make a plan and hopefully be involved in some sort against Tottenham.

“I’ll recover tomorrow and then train again Wednesday. Go from there, I feel good. I’ve been working with a nutritionist off the pitch so things are looking good.”

Of course, Sunday is the first match of the new era at Newcastle United. Both the U23s and the Newcastle women have now picked up wins since the takeover was confirmed. Hopefully, the lads can follow suit on Sunday and pick up our first win of this campaign.

Shelvey was asked about the crazy past few days which has transformed the club. Of course, he thinks it’s massive for the fans. Jonjo also hopes to mark the grand occasion with a good performance in front of a sellout crowd at St. James’ Park.

“It’s been massive news for the fans and for the club. It’s terrific. All that matters now is Sunday.

“We’ve to really put a show on the fans. I’m sure they’ll be behind us as they usually are.

“I’ve heard it’s a sellout so I’m looking forward to hopefully playing a part in it.”

    Saying all the right things, probably get on bench.

    More important is for Wilson and Jamaal to be fit and ready.

    2 goals for Anderson is a good sign. Hoping to see him get a 1st team runout soon.

    Clevelysbob, that couldn’t have happened with Bruce. Martoon says it isn’t a soap opera so it can’t happen today!

    Takeover getting a thoroughgoing pasting on the The Guardian’s “Football Weekly” podcast.

    I welcome this sort of provocative counterpoint, I think it helps, but it is certainly gloves off.

    Starts at around the 36 minute mark.

    Everyone and his dog has had something to say about the takeover, the one person you would expect to be first in the queue to comment about it has aid zilch.
    My house on him being at the game on Sunday. Not just being at the game. but on the pitch.

    Apologies, i meant KK on the pitch on Sunday. I think he will be brought in as an ambassador but i wouldn`t be at all surprised if he was interim boss until Staveley makes her mind up about a permanent appointment.

    Bob,

    I’m sure if the intention is to remove Bruce, they can’t possibly let him do the press briefing on Friday – that would be crazy.

    I’m not predicting that he’ll go tomorrow, but presumably he’ll be gone by Thursday

    If Bruce hasn`t gone by Thursday then i think Staveley has gone soft.

    My sentiments (as already stated earlier) exactly NY. – Nail on head mate. His demeanour and intellectually deficient garbage speak, would knock all the positivity for six. – No thank you 🙂

    KK to do the media brief as temporary manager with Jones happy to be a coach not a manager. Allows them time to really do a deep delve of the the managerial talent out there, and would make it easier, at seasons end to get a manager currently in a job.

    Keegan as interim boss until we find a long term manager is not too bad an idea. The thing is he’s been out of management for donkey years now. His passion will rub off on the players no doubt though.

    Well I think he’s gotta go, and is going to go. He’s been very ordinary, and he’ll get 6-8 million to console himself with, and most the most important thing is getting the 3 points, and I doubt his presence will help.

    Rom, would make most sense, Jones will be fine for a few matches, let a DoF get his feet under table and everyone a little time to get the right manager (if that’s what they want).

    Don’t DoF’s usually have a head coach?

    Lots of talk about players but not seen much about a new GK. If we are going to start playing out the back much better, then we need a keeper with better distribution. Also, a GK that is less prone to mistakes. Not as much an essential but definitely something that needs addressed in summer.

    KK could easily just be quiet as he’ll be announced an ambassador or something before kick off. Imagine the atmosphere that would create?

    Ace, the England goalie from last match would fit the bill, looked sharp and that throw for Grealish’s goal was something else. He’d do for me. G’night again 🙂
