Emre is back from his 3 game suspension, and it will be good to see him in action on Sunday against Middlesbrough – in some capacity.
Emre – looking forward to Sunday’s game
Emre is one player who should benefit greatly from Kevin Keegan arriving back at the club, because he is one of our few creative and very skillful players, still left in the squad. If Allardyce had still been here maybe Emre wouldn’t even be at the club right now, although that’s probably a little harsh on Big Sam, but you get our point
Emre told BBC Radio Newcastle today:
“I play [against] Sunderland and Middlesbrough but I don’t lose yet. I hope we win.â€ “For the supporters this is a special game and we have to concentrate well.”
“We need three points because for the players it’s a difficult time and everybody wants to show something to the manager.â€ “We have to think positive every time, we have a big derby, they’re only two points behind us.â€
“We work with the ball a lot of the time, we have a tournament between young players and old players.” “It’s nice fun and games, we like it.”
We think the Turkish International can have an impact on Sunday when keegan will have almost his whole squad to choose from and it’s anybody’s guess as to what the team will be. We’d like to see the following team – but this may change by the time our Preview comes out tomorrow afternoon – so don’t hold us to this. 😀
Beye Cacapa Taylor Enrique
Milner Faye Emre N’Zogbia
Subs: Harper Butt Barton Duff Smith
That looks a good side to us with a good defense and quite a bit of skill in the team – but notice Duff doesn’t make that starting line-up with the Zog on the left wing.
Kevin will need to leave some good players out on Sunday if he wants to start Baye, Faye, N’Zogbia and Emre, which we do. Somebody isn’t going to be too happy, but maybe Kevin will start Faye and Beye and the bench, because of their escapades in Ghana this week.
Something to think about before tomorrow’s preview of the game, because we’ve actually now got some choices to make.
