This 24-Year-Old Defender May Still Have A Future at Newcastle



We have been writing off defender Jamaal Lewis this year, since he was left out of the Newcastle 25-man Premier League squad in January.

But head coach Eddie Howe has mentioned the former Norwich City left-back today in his press conference for the game at Norwich tomorrow afternoon.

So Jamaal has been bothered by a persistent groin injury and Howe is hoping, with time off, to get the necessary medical treatment and surgeries, that he will be fully fit for pre-season training.

Then it is up to the 26 times capped Northern Ireland International to impress Howe in pre-season.

Lewis is a bit like Miguel Almiron in that they are skillful players with good character, and Eddie Howe’s job is to get the best out of both of them – and he knows that.

It could well be that both Lewis and Almiron will be with us for next season.

The defender is on a five-year contract that he signed in September 2020, and has played 32 times for Newcastle.

What do you think?

    Thos comments by Eddie (#5) worry me a little bit. It’s the kind of thing politicians issue when they haven’t got their own way. Hope I’m wrong on that one 🙁

    Repost;
    The pundits go on about football clubs shouldn’t be owned by a state. Real Madrid has been effectively state owned from it’s inception.
    The level of state funding the club has received over the years is nothing short of scandalous.
    While we go on about state funding; how did WHU get their ground for buttons, a stadium funded by the British tax payers by the way.
    Spurs are virtually bank rolled by the BoE, the lender of last resort propping up a bankrupt club.
    Why doesn’t Miguel Delaney or Jonathan Liew investigate that?
    Is the the state sponsorship of those two clubs really in the public interest?
    God knows what the government is doing to prop up Chelsea.
    However Bury are thrown to the dogs for the equivalent of one weeks wages for Haaland if we believe the news reports.
    If PIF hadn’t invested in us you can guarantee they would have been in for Chelsea and the government will have waived it through.
    Although they won’t admit it Delaney, Holt, Liew and the rest of the sanctimonious toss pots would be tight lipped.
