What’s Your Newcastle Side For Thursday Night?


New French signing Sylvain Marveaux should get a start on Thursday night at Scunthorpe, in the Carling Cup second round.

Sylvain Marveaux – should get start  on Thursday night and make his debut

Newcastle have an important league game on Sunday at home to Fulham (yes, we know they are all important), and Alan will want to play a strong side in that game to get the win.

If Wolves can beat Fulham 2-0 at their place, which they did on Sunday, then surely Newcastle can get a second successive win on Sunday afternoon?

Any player who gets a chance on Thursday night and does well, will be in line either to start against Fulham or get a run-out from the bench in the second half.

Sylvain has had a muscle strain and has not played in Newcastle’s first two games, but he had an impressive outing last week in the Newcastle second string side, which beat Gateshead Reserves 5-0 behind closed doors  at Benton.

We’ll take a stab at the side that Pardew could turn out at Scunthorpe on Thursday night:

Harper
Simpson Taylor(S) (c) Williamson Ferguson
Taylor (R) Vuckic Gosling Marveaux
Bent Ba

That’s not too bad a side, and only the two Taylors and Danny Simpson retain their places from the great win at Sunderland.

We’re not sure if Alan Pardew will make that many changes, but that side should be good enough to beat Scunthorpe – we hope.

What do you think, and what’s  your team for Thursday evening?

    Think Obertan and Tiote will get a run out to build fitness/confidence, Simpson might get a rest with him getting sleepless nights with bairn.
    Harper
    Raylor,Saylor,Willo,Ferg
    Obert,Gos,Tiote,Marv
    Vuckic
    Ba

    Best,Krul,Sameobi,Lov,Guth,Simmo,Abeid

    Obviously a great opportunity for our new left back and new star striker to settle into the team.

    Thats a lot of big changes in personel mate, risky strategy!

    BARTON should NEVER be captain though!
    In your line up, give it to Raylor for beating the Mackems!

    I dunno…First we were reported to the FA, then to UEFA and now FIFA…

    At this rate, we’ll be reported to the UN, which might be a blessing in disguise as they have a history of removing unwanted tyrants…A has been warned 🙂

    @12 that is just what i would play, just to give the others a run out, im not too fussed about the cup, i would rather focus on doing well in the league. however i think that it will be colo instead of kadar and obertan for guthrie (with gosling going central)

    Surely we wouldn’t get a points deduction… More likely a transfer ban.

    Lets face it, would we even notice the difference if we couldn’t buy players for a year?

    Charlton were annoyed because despite us promising we’d keep the contact private, it became public knowledge.

    They have every reason to be annoyed if what they said is true..

    we should definitely look for good runs on both cups, great for the team spirit and moral, fans love it and if we excel, good advert for the club to attract players… or hell, a buyer!

    Ba

    Don’t care about resting players. If we get knocked out by Scunny, it’ll put a massive downer on everything and we’ll be ‘in a crisis’ again :/

    When did they serve it? I don’t recall them going 6 months without bringing in new players :/

    6 months is appalling anyway. With their unlimited funding it’s not hard to pre-buy for one window..

    ToonDownSouth apparently between the windows they never made a purchase, no one else did but that seemed to be overlooked.

    Kevymartins@21 – Nothing would surprise me about this regime.
    Re the game on Wednesday. Would like to see Obertan at right wing (needs games) and Abeid in the midfield.
    It’s a shame Tavernier is on loan. Would have liked to have seen him at right back as I think he can really push Simmo this season.

    Been down at the academy this morning to watch a game! Nile Ranger was training with the kids, his attitude is an absolute shambles! Spent most the time pissing about messing up the drills that had been set up.. It was embarrassing to watch and to think that this lad will be earning decent money for it!! Bit off topic but I had to get that off my chest!

    The liverpool fans that died Sheffield Wednesday’s Hillsborough stadium on 15 April, 1989. could have been our fans as this incident was foreseeable and a number of seasons before this occurred I was in similar incident’s at the same ground, and the same crushes taking place. it could have been our fans.
