'If It's Football, It's Vital'

22-year-old striker wants Toon chance

Newcastle United's Spanish striker Xisco is nearing his return to fitness, it has emerged. The 22-year-old has been unfairly dubbed as a 'flop' by many since his coveted summer arrival from Spanish outfit Deportivo La Coruna, but the reasons are yet to be clear.

In order to want someone to be axed, or in this case sold, one must have a basis for the judgment. What is astounding is that none of the fans or football journalists calling for the young man's head have any evidence to support such a claim.

The Spaniard has made only four appearances for the Magpies, scoring one goal. Of the four appearances, three are late substitutions. That gives him a one start, one goal ratio. Even if you consider all four appearances, its one in four - much better than United's first team 'stars' Shola 'Runs like a Headless Chicken' Ameobi, and Alan 'Out of Position' Smith.

The trouble with all the negative speculation around the youth is that it is not supported by facts. No quotes from the higher-ups at United have suggested anything even remotely close to the striker's departure.

On the contrary, club Managing Director Derek Llambias has stated on record that, 'We'll be seeing a lot of Xisco in the days to come. He has been bought as one for the future.'

The talented youngster wants to get back in contention for the club's encounter against Arsenal, and feels his injury has not forced him to lose much fitness.

'I am able to run now and I feel good, it is lucky because I have not lost much fitness,' Xisco told nufc.co.uk.

'It was disappointing to get injured when I did because I was coming back and had played against West Brom.

'In the game when it happened, against Wigan, I'd scored two goals and that gave me a lot of confidence.

'But hopefully I will be back playing within the next few weeks.'

Let's wait before we jump on the Xisco exit train, eh lads?
