Compatriot Has Sound Advice For Starlet Linked With Newcastle

Last week, multiple outlets reported that Newcastle were close to reaching an agreement for Central Coast Mariners starlet Garang Kuol. The reports stated Newcastle would trigger the striker’s modest buy-out clause while paying add-ons for the various stages of his development.

Updates on the move have grown scarce in the last week. Though, former Middlesbrough and Australia goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has made some comments on Newcastle’s links to his compatriot.

The Chronicle has published the following sound advice Schwarzer had for Kuol:

“Get your head down. Don’t get sucked in by all the attention, don’t let your head get pulled up into the clouds. Wherever you go, even if it’s a big club or a small club, keep doing the basics.

“Keep doing the right things because we’ve seen it with players leaving Australia in the past and they’d thought they’d already made it when in fact they’d gotten nowhere near it and after a couple of years, they fell by the wayside.

“Just because you’re a talent at this age doesn’t mean it’ll last forever. I’m the first person to say ‘Go to Europe’ – if you’re good enough to make it in Europe, that’s where you’ll want to be. But that’s where the hard work starts – it’s hard to get there but it’s even harder staying there.”

Kuol turned 18 last week and hopefully will be sealing a move to Newcastle sometime in January. If he does sign, he’ll likely end up out on loan for the immediate future as he may not be able to gain a work permit.

Newcastle need to scour the globe for promising young talent. The club signed four youngsters over the summer though three were defenders and the other a goalkeeper. Getting some attacking prospects in the door could one of the aims for January.

    Yeah I like Willock. He still has time to develop. And I would only drop him if there was a formation shift. I’m also not sure whether a system change is needed currently. Take each opposition as it comes I suppose with a dynamic rolling captain system.

    Do you think the Wilson high foot one would have been a clear and obvious error had the ref not blown? I mean Wilson’s foot was miles away from the ducking head of the defender.

    “Does Howe not play a system that continually swaps, there was a time when we had a back three of Targett, Burn and Schar and times when Schar was up the right wing, is it not a completely fluid system he plays that changes in and out of possession?”

    Nijmegen -You could have thrown that in the other night when Jedi was claiming Howe has no plan B.

    Agree with Vask post #116…

    Lacelles would be ok as a sweeper with Schar to his right and Botman to his left in a back 3. Botman has the speed to cover Lacelles. Got to point out that every time Lascells has came in he has done a job. Someone mentioned earlier he can get some important headed goals from set pieces. He is a great leader and a warrior who can rough up most strikers.

    When we play Liverpool scum next Darwin will be playing then I’d imagine, I’d put Lascells on him and ruffle his feathers. He definitely has a temper.

    That’s a good question. Refs seem to he inconsistent with high foot incidents that I’m not sure but it wouldn’t have surprised me if they did.

    Personally though I don’t think it would have been an obvious error as, like you say, his foot was not close to the head of the defender.

    Thank you for the concern over how I choose to enjoy my holiday in Turkey…

    For the record, I’m looking for a new job so am spending a little more time with my phone than I usually would, plus my girlfriend tends to go to sleep before I do so I’m up a little with my phone before I go to sleep myself.

    As well as cycling, tennis, and a few other activities, I’ve been reading a book called Sapiens. Very interesting and I’d recommend it.

    Lascelles: aerially dominant.

    Played with a broken nose, almost unheard of in top level football these days. (I know Tranmere, but hey).

    Been to the Lizard once before and many times to Lands End. However I have to admit I prefer the other end as in John o’ Groats!

    In Latin Sapian is man, homo is wise… Hence the word homo Sapian= wise man.

    Does your book have anything to do with mankind?

    Also you don’t have to justify you posting on here whilst on holiday mate. I was just jesting last night.

    But my missus hisses when I’m posting on here during the evening. She will ask me a question and I’ll say,, sorry babes just give me a moment. If I did that on holiday. She’d flip. 😉

    Have you kayaked yet in Turkey?
