Alan Pardew Acknowledges Winner Of NUFC Hide and Seek Competition

7 years ago

It is stating the obvious to say that Newcastle United is a very strange club under Mike Ashley, with countless bizarre factors added by the day, the case of Facundo Ferreyra being just one of them.

The Argentinian has been conspicuous by his absence, despite Newcastle looking absolutely desperate in the final third.

‘Chucky’ Ferreyra hasn’t even got on the pitch in any competitive match and at last Alan Pardew has talked about his hide and seek champion;

“He has been a bit unfortunate and had a couple of knocks that have knocked him back, plus he had a bad back recently.

“He played a reserve game on Thursday with Perez, and they both did well – Perez in particular. So, Ayoze Perez is probably just in front of him at the moment.

“He needs a bit more football and he needs a bit more games but again, another player adjusting to the Premier League.”

Previous newspaper reports claimed that ‘insiders’ had told them the other players couldn’t believe how bad the on loan striker had been in training and was way off the standard to get in the first team.

A pretty damning verdict considering how bad United have been up front.

A strange statement from the manager about the player needing to adjust to the Premier League and needing more matches, when he hasn’t even given him a single minute’s action.
