Tavern(ier) Return(ier)

Tavernier: Back from the mighty 'Heed.
Tavernier: Back from the mighty 'Heed.
James Tavernier has been recalled back to his parent club a couple of weeks early from his loan to Gateshead F.C.

He only had ’til April 9th to go anyway, but owing to Newcastle’s dearth of defensive cover, it was thought to be best for the club to recall the lad.

Which seems fair enough.

He was, apparently, on a 24 hour call-back deal, so it’s come to pass. He could be much needed cover in our remaining games, starting at home to Wolves after the ‘early spring’ break(?).

The lad turned out 18 times for the ‘Heed and has returned with a glowing report from Gateshead manager Ian Bogie. He said of the player:

“Tavernier made a fantastic contribution during his time at Gateshead,”

“I have enjoyed watching him play and he will be a miss, but he only had a couple of weeks left of his loan deal.

“Tav brought energy to the side and increased our options going forward.

He has been a real positive for us and a breath of fresh air.

“Some players who come in from top flight clubs may lord it and see playing in the Conference Premier as beneath them but Tavernier’s attitude was spot on.

“As a young lad making his way in the game he will have benefited from his time playing first team football at a good standard, and I know he has enjoyed his time at Gateshead.

“If he irons out one or two flaws I am sure he will go on
to achieve great things in the game.

We certainly wish him well and thank Newcastle United for allowing the player to come to Gateshead.”

So it’s sounds like the lad put the effort in and enjoyed some first team action.

It’s also good to know that he’s had some football so will be at least match fit if he is called upon to join the fray in the Premier League for Newcastle anytime soon. No doubt other players out on loan will be benefiting from regular games too, but one of the more heartening things was i fact that the club had a 24 hour recall clause in the deal.

Shrewd move.

Tav has had the odd run out in the first team, in Carling Cup games, earlier in the season.

Welcome back James, i’m sure, if called upon he’ll be ready for action and won’t let us down.

Howay the Lads!

  1. well seeing james perch’s red card ban only being one game now does the return of tavernier be premature one

  2. Now the CLiNT, glad to see you back and confirm that the site’s still breathing. Oh, and good post too. Wise words that our learned friend, English Teacher, that font of all knowledge, that pillar of all wisdom could criticise. We’ll just have to wait and see though.

  3. Lesh…don’t wait too long mate….we all end up talking to ourselves on this blog..(queue tumbleweed….) deadsville…

    Stuart79…it’s a conspiracy against the toon….we should expect Lambias to come out in the press claiming that we hadn’t appealed Perch’s red card…

  4. Munich Mag, it’s a “make up” call by the FA. After being so mean to the first team players with cards and bans, they make it up to the Mags with letting the foot off of Perch, a bench rider. See how it all evens out?

  5. Get the lad in at right back cannae be any worse than simpson and perch. Don’t see what others see when looking at Simpson he was rejected by other premier league clubs before we signed him. Please don’t say he had a good season last season. That was the fizzy pop league

  6. buda p
    Strange if Simpson is such rubbish that some of the papers are carrying articles about him being a target for 3 other PL clubs (not top ones, admittedly, but still Premier League.)

  7. Sell him if that is the case. I just get the impression he doesn’t know if to stick or twist. Has the great knack of always being in the wrong position at the wrong time something you cannot teach

  8. Munich @3, I fear you’re right and my post @2 was more of a poke to see if there’s any life left for the site. I’m post 7, after two days and unfortunately that very public spat may have may have done some serious damage. Any lifesavers out there?

  9. Lesh,
    ta mate, i’m still here.
    Just been out at a demo down town all day.
    That was fun, biggest crowd i’ve been in for a few years, & a few fireworks too.

    Ah!
    A bit of Anarchy ‘n’ all that.
    :)

    Can’t see owt wrong in bringing Tav back a bit early, just in case.
    The lad looks close to the step up when i’ve seen him play.

    On Simpson, bit harsh that like.
    It seemed to me that it was Saylor’s wing that was exploited v everton & young Ferguson was exposed v stoke.
    But hey, perceptions ‘n’ all that?

  10. Lesh…I think things are just running out here on the blog… There was a spat of some sort a while back, but I don’t think that’s the main reason why things have gone so quiet on here…

  11. Ah, so CLiNT, you’ve been filling you day in construclively. Good on ya marra and it’s good to know that the flag of the lads and lasses of the bold old Geordie Cong’s still got fire in the soul.
    Munich, maybe we should remember that this site, like many others, relies on much time an effort given by a few folk, even when circumstances are difficult. Maybe the guys behind the site would welcome other writers to spread the load? Anyone ready to put their hand up? Just a thought.

  12. Lesh – You can continue fawning over one site that doesn’t deliver the goods, or you can look for another that does…. Your call…..

    I’m just about fed up with the whole “I’m ill” or “Other things are going on” thing. FFS, Cancer concerns didn’t stop me writing or getting shite from people but that has been forgotten in this.

    One day, people will realise

  13. I like flitting between the two sites, dont know what went on here and i dont care, the Team will always be there to give us ample topics to debate and its a shame that this has boiled over.
    After the boredom of international football, cant wait for this weekend, i see Wolves will be without Kevin Doyle who got a serious knee injury playing for Ireland, shame for the lad but a bonus for us for a change.

    “i see Wolves will be without Kevin Doyle who got a serious knee injury playing for Ireland, shame for the lad but a bonus for us for a change.”

    I know. Never like to wish injury on people, but I’m slightly happy about that!

  15. mayby this blog needs more headlines and people having a go at it,see different perspectives on our beloved club :)

  16. What this blog needs is someone running it without the ridiculous(and absolutely un warranted)arrogance and a complete lack of humility.

    Humbple pie sometimes doesn’t taste too bad…

  17. Lesh…dead right mate, the load for the input/articles etc for the blog could be spread amongst other persons, I agree 100%, and that it is time consuming is without doubt.

    However the subject matter and the way it is discussed / communicated also plays an important part. Before the advent of the blogosphere punters used to pick and choose there newspapers/media..Times, Sun, Daily Mirror, Daily Mail…with the internet it’s even more difficult to maintain interest cos the punters are at the end of a mouse click and consequently more demanding / fickle where they invest there viewing time…

  18. bigbadbob…I’m the same, enjoy flitting between the two blogs, invariably good crack all round….

  19. i dont really understand all the bloggy op’s – are these sites run for free at the expensive and inconvience of one or two organisers? i’d be happy to write stories to keep it lively…for example, i read on nufc.co.uk that ben arfa is coming back to toon and that other French internationals are very impressed with the way we treated him – Now would it be wrong to just lift a story like that and place it on here??

    i’m sure there’s some politics i’ve overlooked, but i’m a cock and balls man, a straight talker not a night stalker.

    Toonsy, if you had real health problems like Hugh, you would never say that, or use other people’s misfortune as an opportunity to promote your own ‘blog. Is there any level that you wouldn’t stoop to?

    “Toonsy, if you had real health problems like Hugh, you would never say that, or use other people’s misfortune as an opportunity to promote your own ‘blog. Is there any level that you wouldn’t stoop to?”

    I wasn’t actually referring to Hugh with that one, but I assume from that I can gather than you don’t think that Cancer is an issue?

    And I’d calm down with the moral bullshit aswell. Rather hypocritical…..

  22. toonsy says:
    March 27, 2011 at 2:52 pm

    “I assume from that I can gather than you don’t think that Cancer is an issue”

    Toonsy, I’m very sorry if you have been diagnosed with Cancer. However this does not give you an excuse to berate and exploit others who are suffering with different conditions.

  23. Worky – I haven’t been diagnosed. I’ve been given the all-clear now, but at the time it was worrying.

    And where did I berate anyone? It was you who dragged naming names into this one like…..

  24. Same old worky always twisting stuff to fit his agenda :lol:. Grow a pair and stop using other people’s misfortune to garner sympathy, it was clear that Toonsy wasn’t refering to Hugh but then that wouldn’t fit in with your agenda.
    I’ll not ask is there any level that you wouldn’t stoop to ;)

    Stuart @ 20 ;)

    “Worky – I haven’t been diagnosed. I’ve been given the all-clear now, but at the time it was worrying.”

    Toonsy, I think you’ll find that having a health scare for a few weeks then being given an all clear is not the same as suffering from a chronic, degenerative disease for many years. Your sheer arrogance and lack of compassion is beyond belief.

    A few weeks :lol: Try months

    I still maintain that I never mentioned Hugh, at all. YOU introduced that to conversation.

    I’d rather be arrogant than be a self-pitying, worthless, cretinous, begging, thief :D

    “stop using other people’s misfortune to garner sympathy”

    I don’t want any sympathy, Dave. It’s Toonsy who seems to be wanting all of that. I have merely informed people that due to health problems, and some financial ones which have been exascerbated by my own health problems, the ‘blog has to take a break for a short while. That’s all. No sympathy required.

    Perhaps it’s Toonsy who should learn to “grow a pair”?.

    “I’ll not mention the threats of violence that I’ve been receiving then”

    Toonsy it is you who have threatened me with violence, not the other way ’round, so stop lying.

    “I’d love to meet that bastard face to face. He’d be mincemeat in seconds and I could show him what I really really think of people spreading shit about me. Mind you, I know where he lives so I may just pay the tosser a visit!”

  29. Worky – Please don’t make me get the e mails out. In fact I’m not going to, but the person that made them knows the score ;)

    Bit precious like aren’t you, considering no names were mentioned? ;)

  30. Anyhoo, would love to stay and chat but I’ve got paint to watch drying. It’s more interesting.

    Catch you later, thief :)

  31. toonsy says:
    March 27, 2011 at 3:35 pm

    “Worky – Please don’t make me get the e mails out.”

    Toonsy, when did I threaten you with violence in an e.mail? That’s news to me.

  32. Worky – Those that matter, know ;)

    Anyhoo, I think a truce is indeed required. I’ll be concentrating on my own shit from now so I’ll stop the petty stuff.

    Despite all the threats and falsehoods that have been aimed at me, I actually don’t harbour any problems and I know people don’t want to read this shit all the time so for their benefit I’ll pack it in :)

  33. Toonsy has worky not taught you anything ? you should have deleted that comment @38 the sameway he deletes and edits comments then blames it on Stardust :lol:

    Anyhoo, I think a truce is indeed required. I’ll be concentrating on my own shit from now so I’ll stop the petty stuff.

    Toonsy, what threats of violence did I send to you via e.mail? And what falsehoods did I aim at you?

  35. travernier back in? i wonder if the money is better than they were getting on eastenders?
    i wonder how clyde and etta are getting on these days?

  36. worky if you apologise too dave iam sure that will go along way too mending the rift and every 1 will start too get along ?

  37. Shit!
    There’s some petty shite going on, what the phuck is it all about?

    If you don’t like it ’round here, gan somewhere else as it’s creating a pathetic scene, & deeply childish.

    Howay lads, pack it in.

    No one’s interested in pissin’ comps, honestly!

    Anyhoo,
    i thought the title was quite funny, based on how he pronounces his name.
    I guess all the bad mouthing got in the way of having a laugh?

    :)

  38. Hey ice,
    alreet mate.

    Indeed man, laughs seem a little thin on the ground atm.
    Although, that little link at 55(above) is funny errr!

    ;)

  39. clint if it was a pissen contest ide most probaly win as i have a 8 inches head start over the rest of yas :lol:

  40. I reckon the fa think they’ve give us a birthday & xmas gift all at once by reducing Perch’s 3 game ban to a 1.
    Joey Barton is in a league of his own.
    Zero concessions!
    ;)

  41. batty,
    it’s dull as ****, isn’t it?

    Who says we don’t have breaks?
    There have been a few this season, more than in recent years.
    Should be a barrel of laughs if fifa get their way & allow the world cup in qatar interrupt the league system in a few years.

    :)

  42. Na,
    but i do now. :)

    Cool, he’s dangerous. Although, that’s tempered by Tiote being out for us.
    :(

  43. Like ya’ confidence mate.
    & you are right more often than most.

    I’ll be doon to me elbows by half time.
    :)

  44. To all speculating,
    the blog does take a bit of work to produce & circumstances to be right sometimes.
    Various contributors do have other lives & stuff does go wrong in them sometimes & every now & then, all at the same time. That being the case at this particular juncture.
    The blog does take up resources too, hosting, broadband, computers.
    My laptop’s screen is going on the blink here, even as i type, drat & double drat.

    So, to summarize,
    Thanx for even asking the question, & by doing so, giving a shit.
    Yea, stuff is going on in the contributors lives that needs addressing & can’t be over-looked or ignored.
    Bare with us.
    Ta!

  45. Hope all is resolved soon and looking forward to seeing the best toon blog back in full flow.

    Best wishes to you all.

    p.s.
    A big foyc to Laurence Tureaud – the bearded lady.

  46. Look the situation is this. I have MS and retinitis pigmentosa and also had an ‘event’ Worky knows about.

    Now let’s clear up the violence and stop hiding behind internet addresses. You can come around and pan the shite out of me (Toonsy has my address) but I have nothing to lose. There is no pain you can give me to compare with what I’ve already had. Knock my teeth out, bust my nose, break my arm, break my kneecaps. I’ll sit there and let you do it. I’m 47 years old and my boxing days are behind me and I don’t fancy my chances but I simply don’t care.

    So why do I defend Worky? I just happen to like the bloke.

  47. Look, it’s all going to far now. It ends here.

    ___________________________________________

    There is the line I’ve drawn underneath it :)

  48. Toonsy @16, thanks for the invite to look at your site. I have been for some time, albeit without commnting and like all local sites, it does have a lot to offer, keeping, many of us informed and entertained – as all of the sites do.

    As far as me ‘fawning over one site’, I’m afraid you’re wide of the mark as I. like many I’m sure, would rather see a range of sites available.

    You’re quite correct when you say that as consumers, we can choose – much as we choose which papers we look at.
    I look at some of the output from the Murdoch empire and have my views on it, its products and its motivation – most of which I find distasteful. In particular, I don’t like the way that it goes about getting what it wants – whether by bullying, being provocative or simply resorting to hyperbole.

    As one who’s prepared to look at the whole before making a judgement, I’m happy to see as many fora for fans of Newcastle United to read and opine hence, my desire to see this site prosper….. as I do yours, Ed’s and the rest.

    If it’s ok with you, I’ll continue to visit your site and trust that the line that’s been drawn under recent events remains so.

    As someone said earlier, wor blogs, not blog wors.

    Haway the lads.

  49. Lesh – Absolutely 100% mate. End of the day I don’t want the crap to carry on as I, and I’m sure everyone else, has better things to do and nobody really wants to see it splattered everywhere.

    So that line above stands, from me anyway :)

  50. all the carry on is pathetic really – worse than bairns. for what its worth worky i do think that an apology to BD is in order – i really couldnt believe what i read at the time – and it left a bit of a bad taste.

    Toonsy – i donated £25 at the time because i enjoyed the craic and wanted it to continue. frankly i couldnt give a sh*t if it was pi**ed up the wall as long as the blog continued – indeed i’d be happy to do it on an ongoing basis. of course i dont know what caused your rift – but now you’ve successfully set up your own (excellent) blog – so wheres the damage?. i like to read both – there’s always room for more.

    worky/hugh/clint/ice/batts etc – looking forward to carrying on the craic in the future

  51. Hey Hugh,
    Hope all’s well mate, kick back & relax & all the very best bud!
    ;)

    toonsy,
    good on yer, well said.
    ;)

  52. Paddy had been drinking at his local Dublin pub all day and most of the night celebrating St Patrick’s Day. Mick, the bartender says, ‘You’ll not be drinking anymore tonight, Paddy’. Paddy replies, ‘OK Mick, I’ll be on my way then’. Paddy spins around on his stool and steps off.. He falls flat on his face. ‘Shoite’ he says and pulls himself up by the stool and dusts himself off. He takes a step towards the door and falls flat on his face,

    ‘Shoite,

    Shoite !’

    He looks to the doorway and thinks to himself that if he can just get to the door and some fresh air he’ll be fine. He belly crawls to the door and shimmies up to the door frame. He sticks his head outside and takes a deep breath of fresh air, feels much better and takes a step out onto the sidewalk and falls flat on his face.

    ‘Bi’Jesus…. I’m fockin’ focked,’ he says.

    He can see his house just a few doors down, and crawls to the door, hauls himself up the door frame, opens the door and shimmies inside.. He takes a look up the stairs and says ‘No fockin’ way’. He crawls up the stairs to his bedroom door and says ‘I can make it to the bed’. He takes a step into the room and falls flat on his face. He says ‘Fock it’ and falls into bed.

    The next morning, his wife, Jess, comes into the room carrying a cup of coffee and says, ‘Get up Paddy. Did you have a bit to drink last night ?’

    Paddy says, ‘I did, Jess. I was fockin’ pissed. But how’d you know?’

    ‘Mick phoned . . . you left your wheelchair at the pub.’

  53. Excellent. Well in the new found spirit of things…..

    Worky – Keep an eye on the Twitter button. There is an issue with the connections between a site and the Twitter access which is causing browsers to fail to complete properly and show up errors on the page.

    It’s not just here, it’s the same on many sites and is a reported issue with them :)

  54. Just tried my skinny jeans , snood, crop top and Ugg boots on! I’m looking good if I say so myself.
    Win on Saturday we are safe. Lose we are gannin doon and draw neither safe nor doon!
    Jean Eous!

  55. batty,
    i’ve done ‘a bit of a round up’ mate.
    Since we’ve been having a football break i thought i’d round up the latest news on the Toon.

    So if worky or Hugh are out there & fancy claggin’ it up for everyone’s perusal, it would be supercool.
    As i’m useless at posting the things properly myself.
    I’m still new to this game(blog posting).

    Ta for asking mate.

    I’m sure one of ’em will do the honours real soon.

    Bobby,
    i bet you cut a dashing figure mate, it’s just a pity we can’t all see a photo of you in your new ‘get up’.
    The mind boggles!
    :)

    It does touch on bobby’s post about the wolves game too.

    Howay the lads!

  57. Bbb @ 78….. Have Durham Wasps got a bee team?

    Dunno about that but Rochdale Hornets use a fly-half!
