Lovenkrands And Guthrie Get Starts Against Fulham


Danny Guthrie gets the nod on the right wing over Wayne Routledge, and experienced Peter Lovenkrands gets his chance for a start up front in the Premier League this afternoon, and is preferred to young Nile Ranger, alongside Andy Carroll against Fulham.

And it looks like Chris Hughton will keep the 4-4-2 formation that he’s used in the last 5 Premier League games.

Joey Barton is serving a 3 match ban and Shola Ameobi, as we expected, is rested so that he can recover from his most recent hamstring injury.

And would you believe that Fulham have no wins away from home this season, and indeed they haven’t won on the road in 24 attempts.

We’re not sure if that’s good news or bad news for Newcastle. 😀

Let’s hope the lads are out for revenge today, because in our last PL home game of the relegation season, Diomansy Kamara scored the only goal of the game. Kamara is a substitute today.

This is a decent side that Hughton has picked, and he’s kept faith with the back four from Wednesday evening – so they have a chance to keep a clean sheet today – hopefully.

Former Newcastle players Hughes and Duff are starting for Fulham.

A win today will put Newcastle right back on track, and that’s just exactly what we are hoping for this afternoon.

Howay The Lads!!

Teams:

Newcastle United: Krul; Simpson, Williamson, Coloccini, Enrique; Guthrie, Tiote, Nolan, Guthrie; Carroll, Lovenkrands.
Subs: Soderberg Campbell Taylor (S)  Xisco Ranger Smith Routledge

Fulham Schwarzer; Kelly, Hughes, Hangeland, Johnson (A)  Davies, Murphy, Gera, Duff; Dempsey, Dembele.
Subs: Pantsil Briggs Greening  Kamara Johnson (E) Etuhu Stockdale

    The only reason Chris H have pick Guthrie is because of his set piece.. There was nobody else to whip in those crosses to Andy Carroll.. And I think thats a big mistake because Guthrie is useless on the right

    lol @darling27 ‘s comment. I thought Tiote would be serving a suspension today. Glad to see him starting. I’m always nervous seeing the centreback partnership of Colocinni and Williamson in the starting line up…..but I wish the lads best of the luck today

    I just wish CH didn’t have these blind spots. Guthrie has NEVER EVER worked as a right winger. Every man and his dog can see it, but not CH !!

    Routlege has not been great but had to get a game today surely. I would preferred Ranger up front too. Hope I’m eating my words at 4.50pm.

    Tiote out next game. That means Smith? Guthrie must have impressed CH in training because I prefer Routledge.

    Xisco might get on and score if AC & PL havent finished them off by then.

    A win would be nice.

    I’m nervous, very very nervous, just like before we played with Fulham two seasons ago when we lost.
    I well remermber how bad we were then, no movement, no desire, nothing..
    The lads must come fighting today, they must show guts, passion and teeth as against villans and the scums, and the result will come by itself.
    1:0 win do me though.
    Howay the lads!

    Guthrie’s delivery from corners is so much better than Barton’s. Shame the chances have fallen to Lovenkrands rather than Carroll.

    Not a bad first half. Good midfield play but we’ve been a bit fortunate.

    Need to break down their defence though.
