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.”

    Story for foot’n Mag

    As ‘Toonarmy of frogs’ was…

    kinda after a spawn of them arrived from 22s persistent postings (he was right for bloody years), the toonarmy and collection of frogs also being an army 😆 so kinda apt with ‘toonarmy of Frogs’

    But keeping the name as its part of our trying ashley years. Its part of us forever

    Plus only joined to air my frustrations on Ashley. Have read eds blog since the low 100’000s

    Onwards and upwards without Bruce

    LCBP,

    100% we need to get players with the right attitude who are hungry to push and prove they belong at the top.

    Not those who have already been there and have fallen from grace, thinking it is their god given right to be selected on reputation alone.

    Bob the employment would continue as normal . Contracts could be renegotiated, but that is usually from a positive pint of view with respect to the employee.

    @TheTinman

    I watched a Sky Sports panel thing last night and they had people talking about the takeover and they had Mackie who played for QPR during their takeover

    He mentioned that they signed a lot of players who were on stupid wages and didn’t really put the hard yards in which caused friction in the dressing room realistically a lot of the players we still have are going to be with us for the next few years so we still need them to do the business for the club as well

    There was a suggestion here as Rangnick as DoF and Favre as Manager. Since their styles are quite different, I don’t think that would work out. Although either one of them would just be OK, adapting to Rangnick’s style would require quite a few changes to our roster and slow developments down. With the prevailing impatience, that could be trouble.

    The Tinman,
    Not necessarily fallen from grace just doesn’t work out for players sometimes, I think with Lacazette his deal is running out and they’ve gone down the promising youngster route. We’d get three good years out of him if we could tempt him. He’s still good enough to be playing top level so even he might be off limits for now.

    LCBP,
    Aye, that was a massive cock up and lessons to be learned there. What people have to remember about Man City is that wealthy Thai bloke had already been there for a few seasons before the Mansours came in, they were in a better position than we are now.

    Going back to Bruce, I still wont call him a stain on our history. Thats not because he is a nice guy etc , because he’s not, and he;s actually quite a prik, but getting us to mid table (ish) even with a lot of luck, does not put him down as a stain, even if you want to play to the gallery. Crap manager, bad choice, narky git, saved by Jones, all that .

    Out the door with him Amanda.

    And purleeze, lets laugh at his media lovies, some of who will scoff at us. The man is getting a MASSIVE payoff. He has done really well out of this, even if he plays the victim because of the 999 bullsh1t.

    Mund, you mentioned Rfa earlier. That aint me bringing him up dude.

    For the players we have Favre would seem suited over the other candidates based on his ability to work with lesser players and play to the counter attack

    We currently don’t have the players to be wide open in defence and Bruce has messed about in games where we should have more points so there isn’t a lot of room for error

    It might not be pretty but we really have to stop conceding such cheap goals the ones we conceded against Wolves it was unbelievable how easy it was for them to get in on goal and then have Darlow not cover his angles

    Lee it could be argued for Favre that counter attack might be the way to go, to compete with the Man Citys, who are so far ahead of us currently. ie trying to match their pressing or Liverpools. may bot work, for a few seasons anyway. given the headstart they have on us

    Of course you won’t call him a stain, you bigged him up for 18 months!

    Surprised you don’t want him backed.

    Jail, you can get Cavani on a free in the summer. I’d prefer 2-3 years of him than 2-3 years of Lacazette. Cavani looks far fitter for a start, he must have a fantastic work ethic which would help to instill it in the rest of the team.

    That’s why I’d also be interested in Azpilicueta, who is out of contract in the summer too.

    Lingard for me is almost a must sign. He’s desperate to play for England in the World Cup, I feel like he would run through brick walls given the chance.

    @Munster

    I just think one of the reasons we are struggling is that we are a half way house of half the team trying to press with the defence sitting back so we end up with gaps all over the pitch and Bruce doesn’t have the players match fit which means we are at a disadvantage every game

    We need a manager who can look at what strengths and weaknesses we have and formulate a playing style from there you can still press teams effectively with a counter attacking style as well if done correctly

    I purchased my match ticket and rail ticket for Spurs but pulled my back yesterday playing golf. The clock is ticking on my recovery. Will I make it on Sunday?

    Munster,

    You’ve obviously with indisputable hindsight finally seen the light with bruce. however, early doors, such was your personal dislike of Rafa, you were giving it all bruce has ” players running through walls, the training’s better and ” the players prefer him” etc etc.

    Now you should be able to see that rafa was limited by the hand Ash gave him but surely even you couldn’t complain when we finally got a 20M player and the ”3 amigos” were formed and we were 5th highest scorers and 7th in the form table during RB’s last half season.

    Equally you dismissed Thomas Frank after his reserves beat us in the cup and you trashed a very young and inexperienced Arteta who has just won manager of the month.

    I don’t want to have to keep pointing this out every time you say our former manager couldn’t be criticised, as like most of us on here, well maybe not Jane, we are all deliriously happy now and living in the moment.

    Can the new owners do something about our shirt? The Four in the front is just ugly. Even getting another sponsor may just do the trick. Can it be done mid-season that’s the question I have since the takeover.

    Munster @213: my preference is still Rafa. OK, I was just trying to wind you up.

    Rangnick’s style will require replacement of the entire backline and whatever that goes by the name of midfield in our roster. With so many changes the Rangnick team will take time to deliver.

    For results our defense needs tightening up. That’s not Jones’s territory. That’s why Jones as a caretaker is not a solution for us at all.
