On-loan Newcastle United striker Adam Armstrong scored a brace for League One high-flyers Blackburn Rovers in their 2-1 win against Portsmouth at Fratton Park on Tuesday night, and Magpies fans were quick to have their say on his display.
The 21-year-old joined Championship outfit Bolton Wanderers on loan until January back in the summer, but he was recalled by the Magpies last month despite making 23 appearances in all competitions for the Trotters, with many of those coming from out wide rather than as a centre-forward.
Armstrong joined Wanderers’ Lancashire rivals on a similar temporary deal just days after he returned from the Macron Stadium, and he has now netted three goals in seven matches.
Newcastle supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the Toon starlet, and while one said he’s “not good enough for the Prem”, another said “patience needed with the lad”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
He seems class, just needs the right team to back him in he championship. Fulham might be the right place.

Good on him! Remember Spurs loaned Kane out to plenty lower league sides & he didn't score as many as Arma has #nufc patience needed with the lad

Finding his level in league one or is that harsh by me?

I agree, twice now he has shown class in L1. Let's hope he gets the right champ club next year.
