21-Year-Old Summer Signing – It Feels Like A Family At Newcastle – Everyone Loves You

Dan Ashworth fought long and hard last summer to bring in Tino Livramento from Southampton.

The Croydon-born right back just turned 21 last Sunday, and at the time, he was a regular playing for the Saints (34 appearances, one goal, two assists).

The fee raised some eyebrows on Tyneside, as Southampton initially wanted £40M for the then 20-year-old.

But Ashworth was persistent and agreed a deal for an initial £32M with £8M in add-ons, depending on the player reaching defined goals at Newcastle.

And in the player’s first 3 starts, he was Man of the Match and looks ready right now to play regularly for Newcastle.

With Dan Burn being out a few months with a back injury, it will help Tino get some first-team playing time with maybe Kieran Trippier moving over to left back to accommodate Tino in the first team.

Livramento is currently with the England U21 side, and had this to say to the Mail on moving up north to Newcastle:

“The move was a tough decision, don’t get me wrong,”

“Anyone in my position, to have that opportunity, would do what I’ve done.”

“It’s a new experience, not only a new club but a new part of England all the way up north. It’s been exciting.”

“There are a lot of fans you see when you go out for a coffee but they’re always respectful, nice and kind.”

“It feels like a family up there, everyone loves you.”

It’s pleasing to hear that Tino likes it at Newcastle, because he could become both a Newcastle and England superstar in the future.

He is looking almost like the finished product at times when playing for the first team, and with Eddie Howe guiding him – he cannot go far wrong.

Tino has turned out to be yet another stellar signing for Newcastle by Dan Ashworth and his talented team.

Long may that continue at Newcastle.

    May be an England superstar but Scotland are trying to persuade him to change to them, along with Gordon, Barnes and Anderson.

    Injuries gave shola his debut and run. This is perfect opportunity for an u21 to stake a claim

    Brazilian Marcos Leonardo for just over £15 million is our top striker target.
    If we can get 3-4 players in for this sort of money each and they turn out to be real gems. I will very happy.

    The big question is how much we can spend in Jan and the summer without being nailed by ffp. Any ideas?

    Adamn – what was Isaks minutes like since he signed. Will find he’s a possible basket case an all, and certainly doesnt appear robust. Although he is a worldy player.

    We need Ivan Toney, but aint gunna get him as have no dosh due to FFP.

    Salah, Mane and Firmino were the kiddo’s, played in almost every game and rarely dropped off for the scousers. Must be doing something right old klippity

    I’m in good company then!

    Isak last season was 1,680 in the league (154 for Sociedad and the rest for us), so missed 1,740 minutes.

    This season, 496, so missed 584 minutes.

    Doesn’t make for particularly great reading either. Guess it’s early into his career to tell though if it’ll be like that every season.

    His last full season for Sociedad he done 2,157, so missed 1,263 minutes. Which is a bit better and could show his body needs to adjust to the more physical demands of English football.

    I done this season and last season for Wilson already, but the season before that he only done 1,389, meaning he missed 2,031 minutes. So his record has consistently been pretty damning for a few seasons now and only get worse with age sadly.

    Again though, it doesn’t necessarily mean all absences are injury related. Wilson got the nod ahead of Isak a lot last season for example as he went on that great goal scoring run.

    Isak has got the nod ahead of Wilson a few times this season etc etc.

    So not definitive proof of anything, just interesting numbers.

    Afternoon all, as there’s not too much credible Toon news it’s nice to see one of our own take his first steps in management. Newcastle cult hero Jonas Gutierrez appointed Club Almagro manager

    Ref Callum Wilson. 11 games in and scored 7 goals. Do the maths. Yes, he gets injured a lot, but who else is going to 20 goals this season?

    Not saying taking a PK is a given but 2 of those 7 I think were PKs and not sure he “earned” either one of them. Just something to consider as well.

    Nice to see Tino use the “F” word again that is all so familiar with our club. 😉
