Alan Pardew: Newcastle youngsters need to step up

Pardew takes his second string to Lancashire, hoping Newcastle can perform better in the cups than they did last year.

He also confirmed that wantaway midfielder Yohan Cabaye will again not feature in the squad, amid strong interest from Arsenal.

However, Pardew's first concern is getting his youngsters to come to the fore against the Shrimps and into the third round, which could provide the opportunity for them to force themselves into the first team.

Pardew said: "We have spent something in the region of £15million on young players at this club and they really need to come to the fore now.

"Last year they didn't do themselves justice in the league or the cups.

"That's not good enough. If they don't do it this year, we'll draw a line under one or two of them."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
