Nydam Out to Make Immediate Impression on New Boss
Wednesday, 19th Dec 2018 17:55
Blues midfielder Tristan Nydam says he’s looking to make an immediate impression on boss Paul Lambert when his loan spell at St Johnstone ends in January.
Nydam, 19, has had a frustrating spell with the Scottish Premiership club, making only one start and four sub appearances since joining them in August.
“With a new manager here I really want to come back and impress him so I’m just itching to get back and show him what I can do,” Nydam told the club site.
“I met Paul a few weeks ago when I was back at the training ground and he seemed like a really nice guy so I’m looking forward to working with him.
“I’d like to try and make an impression here in January. I know that could be tough though as the gaffer will look to make more signings and I’ve basically just missed the first half of the season having not played as much as I would have hoped."

What a pointless loan. Seemed a handy player against West Ham pre season.
|BlueArrow added 18:00 - Dec 19|
Another stupid Paul Hurst idea.
|Tufty added 18:07 - Dec 19|
Now get Wolfenden back

Alexeasty- West Ham was a friendly.
I sincerely hope Nydam does make an impact on PL and gets into the team, but at present, I can’t see it happening.
He’s too lightweight for this division, and Championship midfielders would just brush past him.
I’d be very happy to be proved wrong.

Exactly the right attitude TN. We look forward to getting you back into the fold - then go for it!
|BlueandTruesince82 added 18:29 - Dec 19|
Would love Woolfie back, I really like the look of him. Hope TN gives PL a headache too.
|IpswichT62OldBoy added 18:54 - Dec 19|
He has been living in Perth so should be able to understand what PL is saying.

Welcome back Nydam, better than Chalobah that's for sure.
|Cakeman added 20:07 - Dec 19|
A fresh start for him which he deserves at the least. I thought he started last season well but for some reason was cast aside. I agree it was a pointless loan as has been with all of our youngsters.
|Pilgrimblue added 20:13 - Dec 19|
he should have been loaned to a club that was prepared to play him say Colchester. He is small but very skilled and did shine in some of the games I saw him. Maybe Scotland has toughened him up, tim ewill tell.

I think this was the bit when I started to wonder about some of the decision making; Nydam and Wolfenden give a really good account of themselves in a key friendly immediately before the season starts and promptly get shipped out on loan. It seemed odd at the time. I think I decided there was more to it than I realised. In reality it was probably simply so he could get his mate Nolan in.
The rest is history - everything seemed odd not long after that.
Good to see him back, a good prospect but I worry about the effect of playing in a struggling team on such a young lad.
Paul Hurst has a great deal to answer for. Total carnage in such a short space of time.
|Carl2588 added 20:24 - Dec 19|
All who say he'd struggle I don't agree even when MM put him in the team he never looked out of place in the championship but only thing I would say is that we need a more creative figure in the middle of the park at present so do see the likes of dozzell in front of him and maybe even whoever PL brings in but I do like TN so maybe when chalobah goes back to Chelsea he's one who can step in then after a bit part the rest of the season.

Was not a great move by Hurst, could be an asset to us.really like his attitude.
|Edmundo added 20:42 - Dec 19|
Scotland is tough: apparently the teams up there are not keen on using youngsters shipped in from "southern" clubs, as there's a real feeling that it's taking the place of a home grown youngster (which I understand given the number of loans we've had here). Nydam looked the business at times last season, but it's been a total waste of time for him from a playing point of view. Hopefully he'll get some time from the bench though, and could build a partnership with Downes, Dozzell and maybe even Bish as the season develops. All depends on the next few games and whether we can pull ourselves out of this mess.
|OwainG1992 added 20:45 - Dec 19|
I felt so positive about PH at the start of the season, When he let Nydam, Woolfy, Morris leave on loan I was worried.
So glad when these lads are back and available for Lambert to see.
|Taricco_Fan added 20:57 - Dec 19|
A completely pointless move by Hurst, made even more pointless by Edun (a very similar player) coming the other way on loan.
Nydam was more than ready to make a run at claiming a regular starting place this season and Hurst was appointed on a pledge to nurture our homegrown talent. Instead, Nydam, Emmanuel (who deserves another shot at this level), Woolfenden (looked decent) and Morris were all sent out on long-term loans. Assorted lower-league dross was hastily signed to pad-out a thin squad.
Really poor management. Smacked of someone wanting to shake up the whole squad in an attempt to assert authority.

Easily the Man of the match in the pre-season friendly against the Hammers.
|blueboy1981 added 23:39 - Dec 19|
The Championship is a physical League, a slight player such as Nydam has to compensate with that extra bit of skill, and a terrier type presence to survive and impress - otherwise, as someone has already pointed out previously, such a player can too easily be brushed aside and capitalised on.
One friendly against West Ham pre season is no acid test of such requirement - but his attitude is impressive.
Good Luck to the lad - wish him well.
|Steve_ITFC_Sweden added 04:37 - Dec 20|
Let's get him back and playing for us - maybe not a regular until he gets a bit older and stronger, but he's always looked decent already and seems to me a very good prospect. Also, as others have noted, he has a good positive attitude, while also coming over as both modest and intelligent. I really hope he will make it for us as a star of the future.

Too lightweight for the championship? Some Norwich fans said the same about Todd Cantwell.
|PositivelyPortman added 08:06 - Dec 20|
TonyHumesIpswich never heard of him. I don’t follow Norwich.
|jayessess added 08:12 - Dec 20|
Think it's a bit odd to be speculating about whether Nydam's physically up to the Championship when even Mick McCarthy (hardly a manager to indulge twinkle-toed waifs) gave him a dozen starts in the Championship last year.
|soclopath added 11:02 - Dec 20|
These lads where shipped out for one simple reason,Hurst was scared they would show up some of the rubbish he brought to the club.
|PositivelyPortman added 11:39 - Dec 20|
Soclopath- that’s a risible comment. Get a grip mate. 😂
|PositivelyPortman added 11:46 - Dec 20|
As I said originally, I’d sincerely love for TN to come back, go straight into the team and really grab his chance.
Let’s see what PL does shall we?
My guess is that he’ll say the exact same things that he said about Bishop and Dozzell - that they’re not yet quite ready for the rigours of this league.
I want to be proved wrong.
Now, down vote that.
