Following the last match of the Europa League group stage, Alan Pardew made it clear that many young players would be headed on loan. Yet another has been farmed out.
You may remember the match at Bourdeaux. The result of the match was only 2-0, but we were comprehensively played off the pitch and was the root cause of this quote from Alan Pardew after the match:
The truth of it is that a lot of our young players who we played tonight, I was expecting a little bit more.
'We will have a good look at them now because I don't think the opportunity is going to come around for them again this season unless we really suffer like we did tonight in terms of who was available because I didn't leave anyone behind who was fit.
