“Yesssssss” Shearer reacts as Willock breaks his Newcastle record

Alan Shearer has reacted to Joe Willock breaking his Newcastle United goal record on the final day of the season.

Willock has had a productive loan spell having joined the Magpies in the January transfer window.

The Englishman scored 8 times for them in the Premier League and scored in his last seven consecutive games.

That scoring run equals Shearer’s record for the club and the legendary Premier League attacker reacted on Twitter.

After Willock had opened the scoring for Steve Bruce’s side, Shearer tweeted:

“Yessssss @Joewillock again. 7 on the spin. (four clapping emojis)#FULNEW”.

Willock will not get the chance to break that record this season and he can only do that if he returns to the northeast club for next season.

The midfielder’s blistering form with Newcastle has made him a target of other teams and the Magpies are also prepared to sign him permanently.

However, it seems that Arsenal will prefer to keep him at the moment.

The 21-year-old didn’t fit into Mikel Arteta’s plans for the start of this season, but the Spaniard should be open to adding the midfielder to his core group of players now that he has seen what he can do in the Premier League.

      willock and saliba like new signing next season.

  2. Havyn says:

    Hmmm
    Arteta prefers players like Ceballos and Elneny

    1. PIRES says:

      El Neny does not play in the same position….As for Ceballos he’s definitly an up grade…..

      1. PIRES says:

        I mean JW is better than Ceballos

        1. ozziegunner says:

          Pires, thank goodness for that clarification!

        2. MartinelliTheBench says:

          @PIRES Are you forgetting about Xhaka? Arteta’s favourite! Partey, Xhaka and ESR….where does Willock get a regular start?

      2. Orji Samuel says:

        Very right

  3. ozziegunner says:

    Mikel Arteta, please select Joe Willock and give him his head to run into attacking positions to score goals from midfield!
    Seven goals in seven games is more than the rest of the Arsenal midfielders combined have scored this season. Why has Steve Bruce got more out of Joe Willock at Newcastle United, than Mikel Arteta has at Arsenal? Bruce has taken the chains off Willock and given him his head and he did not let the Manager down.

    1. John Ibrahim says:

      Certain players suit certain club and managers

      with the fans calling the club to spend big and sign big name and tag players…

      who is Willock going to replace in the first team???

      1. Dacoster says:

        U have said it all

    2. PJ-SA says:

      MA is a super micro manager, many people have eluded to this. They word is as “analyses every pass and says where to improve”

      Very few players with creativity can thrive under these conditions. Bruce is by no means the best manager and even he’s getting a lot out of Willock.

  4. Prof.Wenger says:

    The same player was doing great in EL but not the PL, he was out and Ceballos was in, again and again, some explain?!

  5. PJ-SA says:

    If Xhaka doesn’t leave then Willock will sit bench.

    Does anyone here think MA would replace Xhaka if he’s available? Partey and ESR are nailed down starters for most games.

  6. Josephat says:

    Arsenal can only cement their top four finish if they strictly stick there young stars; B.saka, E.s Rowe, G. Martinelli and J. Willock
