Did he ever get any pitch time with us ?!
Looks like Newcastle were annoyed he wasn't getting game time so recalled him.

This. People forget how important the day to day stuff behind the scenes are. Plenty of these academy developed lads come down the leagues losing it over experienced pros. Many of them are on more money than the established players and they don't apply themselves the way they should.
Simple fact is that we don't know. I trust McPhillips enough to defer to his judgement. The man has plenty of experience with young players.
“It’s his first loan but down at Squires Gate we picked the other lads ahead of him because it’s simple, they’ve done better than him - in my opinion.
“I’m not saying he did badly in training, he just didn’t do enough."
Maybe these young players are over hyped. I wouldn't be surprised at a club like Newcastle. Longstaff might be an exception.
PS. Are you Spudgun on the avftt break away site by any chance?
