Lewis Richardson

Post by Newcastleclaret93 » Wed Nov 18, 2020 9:08 am

Is there a chance he could feature for the first team this season?

Every time you read an U23 report he gets a good mention. I believe Stone recently said he is getting better every single game.

I have only seen one game where he played and he looked like he had skill but needed to bulk out a little.

I can’t see it with the looks of how this season is going to pan out.

2 mins in a 3rd Round, 5-0 defeat to City?

He's been possibly the "most likely" of a very promising crop for a while now and has been involved with the England set up at his age level and at Burnley frequently plays in the age level above (CT or Leisure will correct this if I'm wrong). He was injured for a while last season, but fingers crossed he stays fit and keeps progressing as he has. And let's hope he gets a do on the big stage at some point.

There must be something about him. He is always referred to in the U23 reports

Isn't he only 17 too? Yes I know I could look it up on player info, but I am off out.

He, and any others, will only get a chance if we are down to the bones with injuries

It's a pity because we know now what an impact Dwight has made but he only got the chance because of injuries to all other wide men season before last

I go back to the end of last season at Norwich. Two nil up, against 9 men and still Dyche would not even give any of the youngsters that were on the bench 5-10 mins of experience

Having said that Vydra usually doesn't get that much game time now that the much loved Barnes is back

Yes, he's been playing well above his age group for quite some time now but as you say, he was out for quite a while recovering from injury. Before that he was quite a prolific scorer and he's scored just 1 goal in his 6 games this season. Hopefully he'll get his scoring boots on soon and continue to progress, as he does look like one of our better prospects to make that big step-up to the senior squad.

He should be on the bench v Iceland as Gareth likes to fast track rising stars!

One goal in six games but he's not been playing up front - they shifted him in the main out onto the left of midfield.

He was on the bench recently (Chelsea at home I think) but he had a long time out with a back injury last season which is quite a regular occurrence for young players.

Wonder why they've not been playing him upfront?

Preston's keeper scored with a wind-assisted clearance in yesterday's match too. By no means writing him off but I notice Richter was in goal for Burnley and he also made a big mistake/misjudgement last week with Aston Villa's first goal as well.

The misjudgement you referred to was no more than his kick once he'd done the right thing to come out of goal to clear the ball. Seeing the goals from that game is the first time I've seen Richter in action so I'm not going to be criticising him on that.

Conor Ripley, by the way, is the goalkeeper who let that Kieran Trippier goal in at Middlesbrough back in January 2012 that he should have saved. He's former Blackburn player Stuart Ripley's son.

Well, unfortunately when keepers make mistakes they tend to lead to goals and whether he made the correct judgment to come out or not he made a mistake which led to a goal. I haven’t seen him yet either and I did say I wasn’t meaning to write him off - just commenting on making a mistake which led to a goal one week followed by the opposing keeper scoring a goal against him the next.

I know Ripley. I was actually a little surprised when I read Preston signed him.

Maybe because the other 3 are all big lads.

Harker and Thompson played upfront vs Villa. Harker is a big lad.
The manager seemed determined to go with a 4-4-2, probably to copy first team. Tactics not that different either, but I suppose that's to be expected.

Harker and Mumbongo don't look suited to playing in a wide position

I'd certainly agree with that.
I didn't think Richardson played particularly well, if he was being judged purely as a midfield player, but he did get into some decent shooting positions.
I think it's great that the club showed this game (and I believe will show others). Really interesting to watch.

Only if you pay extra for it. I've watched the u23s since they got into the PDL three years ago, virtually every home game and some away games, I've raised over £60,000 via the websites for the academy, I've continued to pay for my season ticket and yet they want more money from me to watch U23 games being streamed. I think it's time to say get stuffed.

On the subject of the youngsters. Apologies if I missed it. The French lad Mancini on loan from Angers. The official site says he's out on loan. Can they loan out a loanee? Or do they mean he is on loan?

I don't blame you under those circumstances.
So you don't have Clarets+, or whatever they call it now? I pay the £4 something a month, which I think is OK. It's all they get out of me these days. :D

I'm assuming that must be an error - for one, I can't imagine you can take a player on loan and then loan him out and they've never reported that as I can recall.

Makes sense. That site is error strewn and worse to navigate than before. I thought it was odd loaning out a loanee.

Hopefully it will make things a little easier once they get all the different parts of the site under 1 login but it's certainly open to improvement! It seems to have been put together by someone who themselves maybe knows just where to find things but they've forgotten to take into account other less informed people (like the fans!)
