Taylor Injured – Cacapa Starts At Fulham


Surprising news, that we didn’t really want to hear, is that Steven Taylor did not travel to West London because of injury, so Brazilian Claudio Cacapa comes into central defense to partner Coloccini.

But this is also a chance for the Brazilian, who is very experienced, to show he is a good squad player, who can perform well when needed, and it will put a little more responsibility on Argentine Fabricio Coloccini, to have another solid game for the team.

Other than Coloccini, Newcastle are unchanged, as expected, and young Andy Carroll comes into the squad as a substitute.

Michael Owen, as expected, will be on the bench, as Newcastle look for a third consecutive victory, but solidity in defense will be a key to winning this game.

TEAMS

Fulham:
Mark Schwarzer, John Pantsil, Paul Konchesky, Brede Hangeland, Aaron Hughes, Zoltan Gera, Danny Murphy, Jimmy Bullard, Simon Davies, Andy Johnson, Bobby Zamora
Subs: Chris Baird, Clint Dempsey, Erik Nevland, Pascal Zuberbuhler, Fredrik Stoor, Leon Andreasen, Julian Gray

Newcastle United: Shay Given, Habib Beye, Jose Enrique, Claudio Cacapa, Fabricio Coloccini, Nicky Butt, Joey Barton, Jonas Gutierrez, Damien Duff, Shola Ameobi, Oba Martins
Subs: Steve Harper, Sebastien Bassong, Michael Owen, Geremi, Charles N’Zogbia, Danny Guthrie, Andy Carroll

Referee: Martin Atkinson
Attendance: tbc

    Poor Xisco doesn’t even make the bench. I have nothing against Cacapa, but I really feel that Bassong should be tried at Centre Back some time. Hopefully Owen will come on today aswell, for more than 2 mins i mean.

    How can Kinnear possibly leave Owen on the bench and have Ameobi in the starting line up? This is just absolute madness. Fulham will have an immediate psychological boost as soon as they see the Newcastle team sheet. I can see it all going pear shaped today.

    Ameobi is wiining every header but martins for me isnt making the right runs. Owen and ameobi would be a better partnership after half time.

    because all kinnear knows is long ball.
    i have a lot of respect for him but lets hope everyone jumping on the kinnear bandwagon will realise he is not viable in the long run.

    we sat back far too much early on. nearly inviting them to score. hope we wake up now
