Let him and his brother go for me people like them because they are local lads but in all honesty will they improve us? Not IMO they won’t but that’s just my opinion.

Don’t rate him, management doesn’t help anybody look good currently but his had doesn’t go up and best thing about him is he likes a shot

The 23-year-old Englishman currently has until the summer of 2022 left on his contract with the Toon and a market value of £15.75m, according to Transfermarkt.
Would you mind if Sean Longstaff left St. James' Park?
No, he's not that good
Yes, he's a good player
Never rated him average at best wouldn’t be sorry to see him go his brother is slightly better. Wouldn’t even make the bench at spurs

Seriously, looks second rate player after a good start under Rafa, think Man U connection went to his head, yet to command a game in a blacknwhite shirt.

Bang average get rid of both of them. Im sick of reading things like this, should be spending more time trying to find a way of playing well in back to back games instead of engineering a move away. Laters ????

So far this season, Longstaff has made seven appearances for Newcastle in the Premier League in which he has neither scored a goal nor provided an assist (per WhoScored).
Over those seven outings, the midfielder has earned an unimpressive 6.26/10 average rating, making him the Toon’s fourth-worst performer this term.
Increasingly looking like a bit of a flash in the pan player. Good few months and little in best part of two years since.
