Chuffed for them both.  Longstaff has been out of sorts so far this season but there looks to have been a marked improvement with Shortstaff as a partner.

Will surely spur Sean on. As much as he’ll be chuffed for him, last thing he’ll want is his kid brother taking his place in the team.

First player born this millennium to score for us. Born when I was sitting my GCSE's 🤦‍♂️

Year after I took mine... Cheers for that.

If it's a squad choice including Hayden, Shelvey and Ki, I don't think he's got too much to worry about.

Great game today by the Longstaff's!
Hopefully they can be our central midfield pairing for a long time now.
Hayden must be third choice after this!

...and Shelvey no way near the team.

It's almost as if they have some kind of natural, almost brotherly, understanding between them.

The genuine emotion of the celebration was amazing. That's f***ing football.

Thrilled for them, and a lovely video. Just a couple of years older than my kids.

What a heart warming interview, might be the only thing that keeps me interested this season. He was raw in some instances where he gave the ball away cheaply but what a way to make your full debut!

Amazing stuff today; 2 young local lads winning the midfield battle against Man U with the younger scoring the winner on debut. Comic book material, you really have to hope the best for them, it’s hard not to be absolutely buzzing for them.

Matty reminds me a lot of Paul Scholes in the way he play.

Good positioning.
Good passer of the ball, both long and short.
Good shot.
Good tackler.
Good vision.
Seems to often make good decisions.
Good workrate.

Still very early days of course but looks to have all it takes to make it.

Even goal aside, he was very impressive today.
It's basically what gives us the upper hand even in times of crisis. "Cannit wait man, we're gonna batter them, hope it's 4 or 5 nil, fancy such and such for a hat trick, we're going got Europe, they're a yo-yo team" Then five minutes into the game "s***, why haven't we scored? They've had a shot! Why aren't we all over them? How come there are two teams in the game? f***, what if we don't win? f***s SAKE CLEAR IT SHOOT TACKLE HIM BOO! What if we lose, PANIC PANIC BRUCE MAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING WHY DID HE MISS THAT SHOT, IS HE A MAG?! IT'S BECAUSE BRUCE IS A MAG! f*** OFF STEWARD ARE YOU A f***ing MAG? BET ALL THESE COPPERS ARE MAGS, AND THE MEDIA! THE REF'S A f***ing MAG! AM I A MAG?! Wait, blacked out for a second there. Ah, f***, we've lost again."

I know he could strike the ball very well, I just don’t know he could do it in his debut against Man Utd.

Great game. Hope to see him in Man Utd shirt together with Sean soon.

Good comparison, apart from the tackling. Scholes couldn't tackle, but it never stopped him from having a go.

I suspect that tackling isn't Matty's strong point either, but we can't complain when the other parts of his game look so good.
People generalise too much.

Let's not get carried away.  Jamie McLean and Brian Kerr would have walks around man utd today tbh.

He was fantastic today and as someone else said, despite how detached I am from the club I found the interview lush and so pleased for the pair of them.

And then to negate it, Bruce sounded like an old man after 7 pints talking s*** about the match in the pub in his MOTD interview "this ginger kid, really good" etc. Feel for the pair of them working under this mong.

Made me laugh how Gary Neville said that yesterday was what’s been missing in the last few years under Rafa Benitez seeing a young Geordie lad get his chance and score for Newcastle.

Pretty sure I saw Sean Longstaff get a chance in the team last season and score :laugh:

his tackling and getting stuck in really impressed today. really needed that as the midfield has been a bit power-puff this season.

"John Carver has talked of playing two up top in an effort to score goals, tactically be more direct to grind out points, and just about every other possibility known to man or beast. They are the ramblings of a drowning desperado."

Just watched their interview together again. :aww: :aww: :aww:

Mad how Sean comes across as a seasoned pro now too, less than 12 months after his own debut.

As much as we have been terrible this season that was an amazing and quite heart wrenching performance. Hopefully they both keep it up

Delighted for the lad.

This situation gets more and more like the late 80s every week. Remember when we had Gascoigne and Stevenson, maintaining the interest. Then we sold Gassa.
