Former Newcastle goalkeeper Shay Given’s recent remarks emphasize Gordon’s current happiness and contentment at Tyneside, signaling a positive phase in his career.

What Anthony Gordon recently told Shay Given

Given recently spoke with The Weekend Wrap about Gordon, praising his recent form. He also revealed specifics of a recent talk he had with the Scouser when he ran into him in St James’ Park.

“Anthony Gordon, you mentioned there at the start, what a turnaround he’s had,” he went on to say.

“He had a slow start to his Newcastle career, went away in the summer with England’s Under-21s, player of the tournament, come back and he’s been absolutely on fire, and the fans absolutely adore him.”

“I saw him up at St James’ a couple of weeks ago, and he goes… He simply enjoys playing for Newcastle. He claims that the atmosphere, the bustle around the city, and the entire place are alive, as evidenced by his performances. He’s been fantastic.”

Newcastle winger heads back to Everton this week

Gordon’s current experience in Newcastle stands in stark contrast to his situation a year ago at Everton when things weren’t going well for him despite his deep ties to the club. Despite possessing immense potential, he wasn’t finding joy in his football at Goodison Park.

His move to Newcastle has been transformative, allowing him to tap into his potential, and this positive trajectory could pave the way for an England national team call-up in 2024.

His upcoming agenda includes a return to face Everton, as Newcastle heads to Goodison Park on Thursday. This marks his second return since leaving in January, presenting him with the first real opportunity to showcase how much he has developed since departing earlier this year.

While he may not be welcomed warmly by Everton fans, he can count on support from the passionate traveling Toon Army in Merseyside, showering him with their affection.
