He should be buzzing tonight.

Still, a career of Championship football awaits.

We'll be a match made in heaven so

Decent on the ball. Not much of an athlete.

He did well today considering the s*** he had around him.

Aye he played well but he definitely lacks athleticism
:lol: I dunno. I'm starting to think it was us.
Trump will do well man. Don't know why but I really feel this will be the case. Really hope it will come to be that way.

Good looking prospect.

Picks good options and moves the ball in a timely fashion. Very very good traits.
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

Should keep his place ahead of Hayden if Diame's back next week.
Newcastle 4-4 Arsenal: "From impending tragedy to near-triumph via the most improbable route possible - 95 minutes that neatly encapsulate 130 years of football on this particular piece of grass. Newcastle, United, will never be defeated."

Sir Bobby Robson - What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses or the marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

I thought he was plenty athletic, just the fact he ran a kilometre more than anyone else took its toll towards the end.

Biggest compliment you can pay him is that he took Diame's place and I didn't really notice Diame not being there off the ball. Any hairy moments seemed to come through Hayden.

Agree in terms of his athletic dynamism, but he’s obviously got a seriously good engine, and can provide very good ‘legs’. Clearly you need plenty more than that at PL level, but he had at least showed a decent range of passing in the second half, and looking at his goals on loan to Blackpool, he has a canny dig on him too. Early days, but certainly a bit of promise.

Distance covered is a poor indicator tbh.  Number and intensity of sprints is far more important.  You want players who can do s*** loads of sprints at a high intensity across the 90 minutes and not just someone who can run at 3/4 pace across the 90.

Athleticism can easily be trained though, look at Diame.

You're right, uncalled for input from me. I take it back - I'm sure he doesn't care anyway, I'm just an anonymous guy on a forum, not only that but I'm from South Shields. Practically a mackem.

Pretty sure Diame was always athletic as he is now. :lol:

Longstaff is a tidy player with decent awareness, but I agree that he doesn't maybe have quite enough athleticism for the top level. I remember when Steve Watson made his debut (at 16 I think) his pace and athleticism stood out even at that age. Maybe Longstaff will develop it.

probably lack of match fitness at this level or needing to adapt to the pace of the game here.

Anybody criticising a young local player who has made an excellent debut and who showed that he has most if not all the attributes to be a success at this level needs to go and f*** off and support a different team.

Should be proud of himself tonight. Very impressive first 90 in the PL.
