Newcastle Tracking Future Brazilian Star – Potential Trippier Heir At Right-Back



With Kieran Trippier, Newcastle’s right-back position is in excellent hands for the immediate future. The England international helped to jump-start the rebuild with his arrival last January when the club was in a formidable relegation battle.

Trippier captured our poll as the best player in the disappointing draw against Bournemouth. The free-kick specialist came inches away from yet another set-piece goal. He easily topped the poll with 43% of the vote.

Who Was Newcastle's Best Player Against Bournemouth?

Trippier turned 32 on Monday and while he may have a handful of years left, Newcastle will at some point need to find a right-back of the future. Emil Krafth and Javier Manquillo are both 28 with 2 years left on their contracts.


Sport Witness has cited a report from Sport that Newcastle are tracking the exploits of AS Monaco’s Vanderson. The Brazilian joined the French club last January from prodigy-producing Gremio for around £10m.

His performances for the second half of last season earned him a new five-year contract this summer. It also put him on the radar of clubs like Barcelona and the rising Magpies.

Monaco will not want to cash in on their marauding right-back anytime soon. Vanderson will probably be sticking around the Stade Louis II for at least another season or two. He only turned 21 in June and Monaco are protected by his new contract.

Vanderson could be the perfect heir apparent to Trippier, though West Ham’s Harrison Ashby is also a potential target. The Brazilian is known for his attacking prowess while being very solid defensively. While he doesn’t yet have Trippier’s pedigree, he is very adept at set-pieces.

    Fenham – sure does. It’s all about the history and behaviour of man. Look it up. Stimulates the brain a little.

    TDS,
    You can see us getting 3 bad decisions turned around in two ways, as with most things. 1 we were very lucky getting three crap decisions out of 4 (that went to VAR) changed. Or two, we aren’t lucky that we’ve fallen to so many ref errors.

    If someone gets beat up badly, but the guy gets arrested the guy getting beat up still lost out. If those decisions weren’t changed We’d Merely be looking at about 7 miscarriages rather than 3 or 4.

    What you are saying about fan Passion clouding judgement is generally true. Some fans complain about every throw in. But this is different. The pattern changed massively after Ashley tried to sue.

    Maybe my view is clouded because I predicted this would happen and we all like to be right. But in my eyes theres a one year pattern and a motive.

    And my best mate supports Wolves he knew there was no chance that goal.would stand, and the guy I drink with is Liverpool. He defended the 9 minutes of extra time, but agrees the offside goal was harsh. So everything isn’t just us being biased. Juve cheated, so the regular patterns don’t always apply.

    Dan Ashworth: “Our strategy is not just about who we can buy, it is also about who we have and how we nurture and develop our best young talent.
    “It’s crucial to provide a pathway for our young players and a belief that if they are good enough, they will get an opportunity.”

    I’m currently reading a book called frames of mind resulting from a link that Cyprus posted about multiple intelligences. Pretty stodgy. I can read a bit in the morning but if I try to read it in the afternoon, that coupled with my incredibly boring job comatoses me. So I have to just read a bit in the morgans.

    Wow, Trippiers understudy a whole two years before his contract runs out. Who’d have thought getting in someone like Ashworth in one department and other experts in another would be a good idea. Why not just get Lee Charnley to do it all?

    ToonDarnSarf,

    Re the book you’re reading Sapian, you say:

    “It’s all about the history and behaviour of man. Look it up. Stimulates the brain a little.”

    Actually don’t have to, as reading this blog on a daily basis tells me all I need to know about the behavior of mankind…

    Mind you TDS after reading this book (which admittedly sounds interesting) I hope you don’t correct or lecture us all continuously on how our behaviour should be as you’ve read up on the history of man’s thinking on rights and wrongs 😉

    I think this is one of those non-stories, at least for now, he only just signed for Monaco in Jan and already had his contract extended to 5 years according to the original article.

    He isn’t going to leave Monaco soon to play 2nd fiddle to Trips. Barca and other also showing interest in him too.

    Chances of him coming here in the next year 1/10. If we are looking to get him later than that then he need to not sign elsewhere before then.

    Put simply he is probably just a name on our list of future right backs.

    Fenham – there is no judgement on how our behaviour as human beings should be, in fact the book teaches quite the opposite. That we shouldn’t be so judgemental about cultures who do things differently to us because things like capitalism, monotheism, nationalism, and even family units are not guaranteed outcomes of history and we could be behaving very differently had key events or decisions gone in another direction. Indeed, we could behave very differently in future.

    Fenham,

    Agree reading this blog will teach you a lot more about psychology than reading Freud or Viktor Frankl. This blog is society in microcosm.

    ZG – isolated examples don’t prove a trend and there’s simply no way we’ve had 3 or 4 miscarriages of justice this season. 1 definitely, you could potentially argue 2 (Longstaff) but no more than that really.

    ToonDarnSarf,

    Hmm very interesting mate in all honesty. So, will this book which teaches as to why there is no judgement on how our behaviour as human beings should be. Does this do away with your CoC theory?

    I’d really give this book a good read as it sounds like it shall provide balance to ones thinking 🙂

    Do we really need a replay of the VAR debate. Haven’t we seen all the angles already?

    If there is just one criticism of Eddie, it is the injuries we seem to pile up to key players and mainly hamstrings. Is this down to over use, or is the fitness guy not devising appropriate training programmes. Maybe a mixture of both.

    Yes we are way fitter than we were in the awful Bruce days but I now see Isak is not training with Sweden and it just seems we can’t catch a break at the moment. We can’t afford to be without St Max, Isak, Bruno, Wilson, Anderson.

    The alternatives in Murphy, Fraser, Miggy, Longstaff and Ritchie shouldn’t be who we have to turn to if we have serious aspirations of making Europe any time soon. I guess everyone knows this anyway.

    ZG,

    Not sure who Viktor Frankl is? Does he manage Brentford 😉

    On a serious note ToonDarnSarf book sounds actually interesting, if I had time to read it, I actually would. Maybe when I’m next sat on a beach or around the pool on my next holiday and hopefully understand on all the thoughts and thinking of how we got here, and why we are here. Where did it all start, it was the big bang right?. But what was the force behind the big bang. What made that happen? OK I have a headache now, can tell it’s international break week, just when I’m going into a high level meeting in 20mins I’m now thinking when did it all (the universe) start and how and more importantly………By whom? 😉
