Exclusive: An interview with Adam Campbell.

Could Adam be a future star?
I know many Newcastle fans are very interested in the progression of youth at the club, which is why I’m aiming to interview as many of our younger players as possible. I’ll leave the interviews with he older ones like Laurent Robert for Toonsy and Co!

I thought this may help fans get to know our exciting youth team and find out more about our possible stars of the future.

Hopefully this will be the first of many NUFC Blog interviews, but we have to start somewhere so where better than Newcastle and England Under-16 striker Adam Campbell? I got in touch with Adam over Twitter and he was happy to take part in a short interview for the blog, which was very good of him.

What team do you support?

Newcastle United.

Who is your best mate at NUFC?

Couldn’t pick a best mate, love everyone.

Who is the funniest player at NUFC?

There’s a group of funny players, Michael Riley, Dennis Knight, Liam Henderson, Remi Streete and Billy Ions being the stand out jokers.

Who is always last off the training pitch?

Definitely Ben Sayer, he loves staying out to train.

Who is your favourite player in the first team to watch?

Hatem Ben Arfa, he has unreal tekkers, he’s calm and composed on the ball and I love the way he dribbles.

What is the most memorable game you’ve played in?

It has to be England V Northern Ireland in the Victory Shield.

What is the most memorable first team game you’ve watched?

Newcastle 5-1 Sunderland. (I’m sure many fans will agree with you on that one Adam)

What current player do you model yourself on?

I love Hernandez, so I’d say I probably modelled myself on him, because he has amazing movement and he’s a quality finisher.

What is the favourite goal you’ve scored in your career so far?

It was against Bolton, It’s my favourite because it was my first for the reserves. I’ll always remember that goal. Stephen Folan crossed it over and the keeper came out and I put it in the near post.

Who is your favourite ever NUFC player?

Alan Shearer, He was a legend. No other way to describe him, he was just too special.

What are your personal aims for next season?

I would like to establish myself in the youth team and push for reserves if possible.

How does it feel to have won the MVP award at the Nike Premier cup, which has also been won by Iniesta, Tevez and Torres?

It’s an absolute honour to win that award; I can’t describe how good it feels to win something which has been won by such great players.

Something which stands out to me from the interview is that fact that Adam actually supports Newcastle. That’s always a good start and the North Shields born striker could prove to be a real hit on Tyneside. A home-grown talent is always popular with the fans, and they are normally the most loyal of players, emphasis on normally, ahem Mr Carroll.

Adam has achieved quite a lot so far in his short career. The 16 year old striker has already been called up for England duty, has represented the club at youth and reserve level, and has shown himself to be a very talented player.

If Adam turns into anything like Hernandez – the player he models himself on – then I’m sure he and all Newcastle fans will be absolutely delighted. Also after winning the MVP award at the Nike Premier cup Adam definitely has something about him, and hopefully over the next few years he will be able to showcase his undoubted talent on the biggest stage for Newcastle United. I, for one am very excited about following his progress.

Many thanks to Adam Campbell for taking part in this interview, and hopefully it won’t be the last we hear about him.

  1. I agree Dave,

    But would you risk it all on Sturridge? It rather get Long, Hutton and Barnetta for the same money (just an example but see my point).
    Young and English potential is only worth the money if you are established with money to spend.

    We don’t have that luxury. Maybe in 4-5 years.


  2. Dave,

    It’s because its the one sport in South Africa were its private and the government can’t interfere.
    Just look at our cricketers. Half the England team was born in RSA. 😉

    But let’s not go down thay road…. 🙄


  3. Its ok I’m one of the minority too JJ.
    Took a proper grilling off Munich earlier because I dont think Sturridge is what we need right now lol


  4. By the way does anyone know the status of Andy Carrol? I mean is he still crocked?


  5. Beardsley, he was involved in training in singapoore so think he’s almost fit… I don’t think he played in their match though…Ngog and Suarez played the full match I believe


  6. Carroll is playing.

    I’d prefer Long or Erdinç, or even Bellemy on loan, or Salomon Kalou from Chelsea or Papiss Cisse.

    Unjustly want someone with workrate and pace and power. Erdinç would have been great but let’s see.


  7. All these people talking about unity in the dressing room.
    He it helps. But Shearer and Bellemy hated each other and they were brilliant.
    Ben Arfa and Benzema… Etc. As long as they click on the field they don’t have to click off it.


  8. yeah I think this Erdinc think will get resolved soon and he will be coming here, not sturridge tho. That sounds like a llambsarse pr publicity bullcrap thing to pacify the hoards. He thinks we all stoopid see. Arsehole 👿


  9. Beardsley-No worries. On Soderberg, if we’re lucky enough to keep Forster and Krul here for next season we should definitely loan him out…Harps can cover for the reserves if the other two prove better than him 😆 …don’t think Forster or Krul would be happy to drop down though.

    JJ-agree, unless it gets really really personal then it should be fine. Spats between individuals aren’t uncommon. What we don’t want is an overall bad mood amongst the team. Sir Bobby could generally get all the twats to put their differences aside..


  10. It still came back to bite him in the ass tho.
    Good Team Spirit can make an awful lot of difference come the end of the season. I think you’re better having it than not. Dont want to see another dyer/bowyer handbags on the pitch again. 👿


  11. On ba i think he’ll get a lot of goals next year. going to have an e/w punt on him to be top scorer next year. 50/1. aiming for top 4.


  12. @163

    No one wants to see that again. it was one of the most shamefull moments in Newcastle history.


  13. If you like a flutter we are 16/1 betting without big 6. if you take it e/w we are 4/1 to finish in the top 9. Seems a banker????


  14. More Shepherd being an absolute c*nt I reckon. Losing control of the dressing room? Bollocks, just an excuse because we weren’t in a CL place at that point. Although the Bowyer/Dyer thing was just fkin embarrassing to watch. Its obviously better to have it than not..but if it came down to it I think most people would take the mercenaries of Citeh over spirit… not quite comparable but yknow.

    Its more effective leadership than spirit as such, Colo will have a lot to prove this season, hopefully Barton can do a job as vice captain…if he gets it.


  15. Soderberg is a 20 year-old keeper behind 3 top keepers in the first team. He has to expect a little more time in the reserves if he has any sort of sense


  16. No chance of Soderberg making it with us, he has one year left on his deal, with Krul and Forster ahead of him he will have zero chance of earning himself a new contract. When I’ve seen him play for the reserves a few times he hasn’t impressed me at all.
