Shane Ferguson, Back In Frame?

11 years ago

A player who impressed on a handful of appearances was Shane Ferguson.

Despite being short in stature he looks to have real talent but I suppose the challenge for him will always be to overcome that size/strength difference.

Many would have argued he deserved his chance with the lack of choices at left-back but maybe the fact he messed around Northern Ireland suggests a bit of an attitude problem that overlapped into his non-appearance in Newcastle’s first team.

With it looking like Obertan could miss a month or so with his toe injury, Ferguson’s certainly got a bit about him and comfortable on the ball so just maybe he might get his chance on the left against Manchester United with Jonas shifting to the right. A move which might also spark the Argentinian winger back to life after a few indifferent performances.

I suppose some of you would go for Sammy Ameobi on the left but I have to he’s done next to nowt on his substitute appearances and maybe needs more time to get used to the step up.
