Happy to say Lascelles has proved me wrong. Could have a future England centre half on our hands. #nufc— Liam Taylor (@27liamdavid) May 1, 2016
Jamaal Lascelles has been a revelation... Quality young CB #NUFC— Sam Bradley (@bradley_sam) May 1, 2016
#nufc but credit where due, he got club Lascelles & Darlow. Wish he recruited locally instead of fragile & mentally weak french youngsters— bobby martins (@bobbyonwestside) May 1, 2016
Still buzzing from yesterday. Townsend, Darlow, and Lascelles brilliant. RAFAAA BENITEZ. #NUFC— Joe Gray (@Joe_Gray21) May 1, 2016
Lascelles looks like a real talent for Newcastle. Seems to be one of the few who care about staying up #NUFC— Jonny Winbow (@jonnywinbow) May 1, 2016
Jamaal Lascelles will do for me. Superb yesterday. What a 'kin tackle #NUFC— Michael Martin (@tfeditor1892) May 1, 2016
You can see Lascelles developing with every week. Still work to do but has the ability and intelligence to become a big player for #NUFC— Mark Carruthers (@MarkNLDaily) May 1, 2016
