Campbell Gets 45 Minutes – Newcastle Get 3-1 Win


Sol Campbell made a good start to his Newcastle United career tonight when the Newcastle reserves beat Sunderland Reserves 3-1 at the Stadium of Light.

Nile Ranger congratulates Lovenkrands after Peter scores penalty

Campbell played 45 minutes of tonight’s 3-1 win, but the game was spoiled by Spanish striker Xisco,  being handed a red card for kicking out at Jordan Cook, late in the first half.

At that time Newcastle were 2-0 up with goals from Nile Ranger and Peter Lovenkrands, with Peter again scoring from the penalty spot after Ranger was brought down by Sunderland goalkeeper Trevor Carson.

Campbell, who turns 36 on 18th September was signed as a free agent last month, and this was his first game in the famous black and white stripes of Newcastle, and he was replaced at the half  by 20 year-old Ben Tozer.

Ryan Taylor made it 3-0 with another good free kick on 60 minutes, and even though Newcastle were down to only 10 men, Sunderland still found it difficult to get back into the game.

Cook did score a late consolation goal from the penalty spot, and Ryan Noble hit the post, but it was all too little too late for a well beaten Sunderland side.

A good win by Peter Beardsley’s Newcastle Reserves side tonight.

TEAMS

Sunderland: Trevor Carson, Marcos Angeleri, Blair Adams, Adam Reed, Michael Kay, George McCartney, Robbie Weir, Jack Colbeck, Ryan Noble, Jordan Cook, Andy Reid.

    It like the same characters are causing problems for other teams. I think Ranger should be on the bench at the very least for the next few games. I dont think well see any flash tactics from CH.

    ………Harper
    Rtayl.Will.Collo.Jose
    Rought…Nolan..Barton.Jonas
    ……….Arfa
    ………………..Carroll

    Subs. Ranger, Smith, Sol, Guthrie, Loven,

    I hope we start Arfa over Smith and show a real intent to put the game away before half time. If we can get a few goals then we can give some others a chance like Barton for Guthrie or Hatem for Lovenkrands. I hope Caroll can get over his ankle injury but if he cant then I say we start Loven or Ranger up front. I wish we ‘d haman

    1stly campbell wasn’t playing in black n white ed!!

    secondly far from being “another good fk from Raylor” it was a back pass. mcloven took the fk quickly and simply squared to raylor who couldn’t really miss.

    Then we would have had 3 recognisable strikers…

    i think routledge will be replaced by ben arfa. nolan will stay in his role behind carroll and tiote will go in for smith.

    that would probably be our strongest line up

    I reckon Hughton will start with the same starting line-up. Ben Arfa will come on at ~70 mins and Campbell will start the game after Blackpool

    “and this was his first game in the famous black and white stripes of Newcastle”

    Looks like they’re wearing blue to me mate. :-p

    “I wish we’d managed to off load Ameobi or Xisco over the last few days.”

    Sillyness. Shola is fine cover for Carroll, I’ll give that we won’t look near as strong if he has to do the heavy lifting with goalscoring, but a slight tactical shift if Carroll goes down, and Shola will be able to help this team weather that storm if need be.

    I don’t agree on Xisco either, but I don’t feel so strongly on it as to make a case.

    matt, agree about Ben Arfa. But Williamson and Coloccini have been undroppable so far, and unless we do a Wigan against Blackpool they’ll definitely stay in.

    interesting to see what happens when guthrie and gosling are fit.

    will make it one hell of a battle at training to get into on of those spots.

    cant wait to see the new guys play inc gosling

    Harper
    Perch
    Enrique
    Colo
    Williamson
    Routledge
    Jonas
    Smith
    Barton
    Nolan
    Carroll

    CH should stay with an unchanged starting 11 for Blackpool with:

    Krul, R Taylor,Campbell, Tiote, Ben Arfa, Ameobi, Lovenkrands

    on the bench.

    Alan Smith should be backup player at BEST.

    Barton,Nolan,Tiote,Guthrie,Gosling are our main centre midfielders. (tough decision there)

    purely belter:

    yes, But now we have COVER! All the top clubs have cover in midfield. U need it to last a whole season.

    We got several decent strikers also, which is just as important.

    My guess is top 8 this year. Being optimistic:)

    Being realistic, I dont think we’ll go lower than 12th with this squad.

    Smith played good game against Villa and Wolves so it’s hard for Tiote to break him down now. 2 weeks to go, we’ll wait to see who’s better in training and deserved to get starting 11 against Blackpool.

    Maybe both Tiote and Smith will no play that game because we will pay attention to attack them, I will go for :

    GK – Harper
    RB – R.Taylor (more crossing and good form)
    LB – Jose
    CB – Willo and Colo (I don’t think Solo will fit enough but don’t mind if he can)
    MC – Barton and Nolan (forward intercept)
    AML – Jonas
    AMR – Routledge
    AMC – HBA
    ST – Carroll

    We can change it into 4-3-3 by sub Smith or Tiote for jonas and Loven for Routledge to

    Nolan – Smith – Barton

    HBA – Carroll – Loven

    Good on paper, isn’t it ?

    Our best team when healthy IMO:

    Krul
    Gosling – Williamson – Sol – Jose
    Tiote Barton
    Ben Arfa Nolan Jonas
    Carroll

    harper – backup keep

    Colo, S. Taylor – backup CB’s (both solid as starters also)

    Routledge – On for tired Jonas/HBA

    R. Taylor – Replaces Nolan when we need offense. Raylor to RB, Gosling to RM, HBA to forward

    Lovo, Shola, Ranger – backup forwards or replace Nolan when tired.

    Guthrie – backup CM

    This is just what I would do for starters… i could see lots of players forcing their way into the starting lineup however.

    I said when injury free,the team imo should look like this:

    ……………Harper

    S.taylor…Colo….Sol…Jose

    ……..Tiote…..

    …………………….Guthrie……..

    …………….Nolan………………

    HBA………………………Jonas

    ……….Caroll

    Sub:Krul,R.Taylor,Perch,Willo,Smith,Xisco,Ameobi,Ranger
    Send Best to reserve,I would risk playing him on the field,every occasion we get in there is crucial and im confident he will blew them away.

    Ive been looking at the premier league highlights the other day,Every teams in PL deserve to be it.Bookies have placed us to be relegated,we will prove them wrong.
    Bookies for wolves place us to lose,we draw.
    We need to prove them wrong.

    Goodmorning all!

    The squad looks quite good after this window with 5 good looking players comming in. Very well done CH, DL and MA.

    Are there any chance that we will hear: Ashley, Ashley give us a wave!! @ ST James Park when we face Blackpool?? 🙂

    I rub my eyes in disbelief at times at the fantasy teams our ‘bloggagers’ see fit to submit.

    Noticeable is the sheer level of naivety / disloyalty / blindness (take yer pick) in immediately bringing in a 36 year old, still unfit temp in place of either the majestic Colo (@22) or his able partner Willo (@23).

    How is this team building exactly? Sol will be here one season at best, why we would exclude Colo (who should be captain imho) is beyond any post-Grecian logic system. The alternative exclusion of Willo also beggars belief as the prime rule for centre backs is the sum should be greater than the parts – and such is the developing partnership between these two.

    And the cause of this? One S Taylor, who IS AN ABSOLUTE DISGRACE. If he had sorted his contract out last May we wouldn’t have had to sign Sol and could be building a solid defence from our players for the next 3 seasons or more. Instead we had to conscript a honeymooning mercenary who just happens to live down the road. Not good enough!

    C´mon Captain – Agree with you that Sol shouldnt “walk” into the starting lineup but with his expirience – hes a very valuable member of the squad and the youngsters can learn at lot from him.

    Why change a winning (drawing team) ? Smithy has started this season just aswell as he started last season & was very good against villa, but people want him dropped for Tiote who they probably only saw in the w/c & change a solid looking defence to fit in campbell. The new guys have to earn a place pushing the 1st teamers for their starting place, saying that I hope afra is involved against blackpool. The great thing is that we now have some quality options.

    The team that has started this season has done it brilliant and i think that as long as it continues, let them play and if someone drops in form – replace him with another.

    Thats just me – you might think diffrent.

    Batty, has not seen Sol play this year but who has? Still, he has a lot of expirience at this level and I think he might become a good member of the team.
