Newcastle United Deliver Reality Check With David Silva v Ayoze Perez Message

7 years ago

Looking for a positive angle to talk about the difficult opening match with Manchester City, the official club website has gone with a quirky but very dispiriting angle involving David Silva and Ayoze Perez.

Newcastle United have pointed out the fact that both Perez and Silva are from the Canary Islands and one of their staff writers wrote the following;

“Newcastle’s game against champions Manchester City is arguably the pick of the Premier League’s 2014/15 opening weekend fixtures.

“In August, he (David Silva) could come up against the Magpies’ summer signing from CD Tenerife, Ayoze Perez.

“The twenty year olf from Santa Cruz De Tenerife may make his United debut against the Citizens.”

This isn’t exactly the type of uplifting message Newcastle fans will be looking for, supporters who’d kidded themselves that the club/Ashley were serious and Perez was one for the future, rather than that gut feeling most of will have shared. Past experience telling us that there is every chance Ayoze Perez will be thrown in head first due to nit being able to get first team signings ‘over the line’.

So in the blue corner we have David Silva;

World Cup Winner

European Championship Winner (x2)

Premier League Winner (x2)

FA Cup Winner

League Cup Winner

Community Shield Winner

Copa Del Rey Winner

Super Cup Winner

While in the black & white corner we have Ayoze Perez

Finished 11th in Spanish Second Division
