Old King Kev has been pushing for Rafa to allow Emiliano to go out on loan to them for the season, but apparently to this point has been refused.
Now I know what kind of stink has been floating around the Toon Army the past few seasons, but I don’t think anything but good could come from him going out to Newcastle if he was assured of first team football. I’m sure he’ll see his fair share with us as well, but by no means will he be a certainty on the team sheet, or at least I would think not. Now if Rafa intends to play the youngster enough, then by all means hang onto him. If not though I don’t think you could ask for much more than a largely supported club, with a terrific atmosphere for him to grow up and mature in front of.
Either way I think he has good potential to be with us for some time, so we’ll just have to see what Rafa cooks up for him.
