Don't get carried away.

LOAN players have never been at the top of my favourites list, and neither has the business of buying players who are past their best.

Sammy Ameobi's goal against Cardiff was a cracker, but let's not get carried away by one performance.

I wasn't at Huddersfield on Tuesday, and while he crossed for Boro's goal, by all accounts Ameobi's casual pass paved the way for the Terriers' winner.

Whether he is good, bad or indifferent at the Riverside, Ameobi will go back to Newcastle at the end of the season.

And it remains to be seen what will happen with Kieron Dyer.

Yes, he scored against Cardiff, but that was his first league goal in six years.

Then he wasn't even in the team at Huddersfield, so it's disruptive.

I would rather see Adam Reach and Luke Williams in the team ahead of them, because they are the future of the club.

Both of them are young, but if you're good enough you're old enough and I think they are both quality players.

I've been accused on the social networks and radio of being a hypocrite and slagging Dyer and Ameobi off because they have Newcastle connections.

But nothing could be further from the truth.

I couldn't care less whether a player is from Tyneside or Timbuktu, and I'm not slagging them off, I'm only expressing my opinion.
