Howe Reveals He Will Take A Close Look At Young Geordie This Summer



Elliot Anderson finished his loan spell at Bristol Rovers with a bang. The 19-year-old scored an almost perfect 9.96 rating on WhoScored with a goal, 2 assists, and 7 key passes as Bristol downed Scunthorpe 7-0.

Bristol had confirmed a playoff place the weekend before when Elliot headed in a dramatic 95th-minute winner. His goal last weekend against The Iron was the one that clinched promotion back to League One as it matched Northampton’s goal difference giving Bristol the edge through goals scored.

Anderson ended his loan spell with 8 goals and 5 assists in 21 appearances. He endeared himself at Bristol earning rave reviews from manager Joey Barton while getting dubbed The Geordie Maradona by some.

Anderson is unfortunately not eligible to play a part in Newcastle’s final two matches this season. Eddie Howe confirmed during this morning’s press conference that he will take a close look at the youngster in the summer saying:

“We’ll certainly bring him back for preseason. We’ll have a close look at him. He’ll be involved in the pre-season games.

“We’ll make the decision then whether he needs another loan or whether he’s going to stay with us.”

Howe needs to make the right decision for the local lad’s development. He appears to have the ability and mentality to help Newcastle next season. However, if it is only in a bit-part role, a loan to The Championship may be best in the long term.

Howe also mentioned how much he feels Anderson benefited from his half-season on loan despite him being miles above League Two. Here is what Howe said when about how pleased he was with Anderson’s loan spell:

“Very pleased for him. He was desperate to go and play and have that experience on loan.

“I’ve said many times we didn’t want to necessarily pitch him into League Two. We felt maybe he was better than that level but due to one reason or another, that’s the level he ended up at.

“He’s excelled. It’s very difficult to, as a young player, go out and really make a difference. He’s not just done that, he’s made an incredible difference to Bristol Rovers.

“It was a dramatic final day. Full credit to Joey’s team and to Elliot. What an experience for him. Certainly one he’ll always remember and look back very fondly, hopefully at the end of a very successful career.”

    H2H Div2

    With 2 game weeks remaining, NY Mag is 6 points clear but theoretically can be caught by banana. The Top ten are promotion candidates, so there’s an interesting wedge mid-table. Well done to ZG for achieving the 2nd top score in the division. Unfortunate for davo who caught Wor B on one of his lucky weeks.

    Nobody is suggesting a right sided centre half. We are only talking re Botman ( ACMilan will get him i think) etc. Are we saying Schar is 100% safe but Bdb isn’t?

    Nobody is 100% safe apart from Bruno and Trippier

    Dan Burn isn’t going anywhere and neither are Schar and Dummet.

    Gary Neville: “Newcastle away for Arsenal on Monday night is going to be really tough, really really tough. Arsenal have two tough games to end their season.”

    The Saudi third kit idea for #nufc was a stupid one and, quite honestly, the club deserve all the criticism coming their way over it. It was the manufacturer’s idea apparently but it’s been signed off by someone at the club. More to follow on

    No way that strip is legit. It would be a PR nightmare having the Saudi colours as an away kit given all the controversy the takeover caused already. Can’t see it, doesn’t exactly scream that PIF is truly independent from the Saudi Government.

    Maybe in a few years when the club has gone to Winchester for a nice cold pint and waited for this all to blow over.

    Got to scratch this one off as some gimp on the internet trying to stir the pot.
