Big Shocks In Carling Cup – Marveaux To Make Magpies Debut?


Sylvain Marveaux signed for Newcastle United earlier this summer on a free transfer, as Newcastle seemed to get him at the very last moment, and after he had had medical at Liverpool.

Sylvain Marveaux – will make debut against Scunthorpe

The fact that Liverpool wanted to sign him shows he is a very decent player, but he’s  been injured since last October, with  a knee injury and he’s also had some groin problems since then too.

But now, after some good work from the Newcastle medical staff, it seems that Sylvain is ready to play for the first team, and he’s likely to start tomorrow night at Scunthorpe.

That will be a big chance for the classy winger to show what he has to offer Newcastle, but there’s little doubt this lad has lots of skill, and will possibly be pushing Jonas Gutierrez for that left wing spot on the team this season.

That’s assuming Jonas is still at Newcastle come September of course, and you never know what may happen in this last week of  the transfer window,  as clubs make their final moves.

The Frenchman seems an excellent professional,  and has waited very patiently for his chance at Newcastle, and the 25 year-old talked to the local Newcastle press today:

“It is a long time not to play football for any player. But I played 90 minutes last week.” “Training is good but I need games and get to grips with English football.”

“The most important thing is not to rush. You always want to play but you must be careful. The medical staff have done a great job.”

“I have been here a while now and I have been working hard to be fit and ready. I am ready now. The derby game was great, I wanted to get on but it was OK because the team did a great job.”

“And we won for the fans, it was great for them and the atmosphere from the fans was amazing.” “I’ve never seen anything like that in France – it was great.”

Newcastle have an important game tomorrow night at Scunthorpe in the Carling Cup, and we have to hope the lads can play well, and reach the third round in that competition, because we need to do much better in the Cup competitions this season.

Sylvain talked about the Carling Cup”

“We want to go as far as we can in the competition. We have a large group and everybody wants to play.”  “Every game we have to approach and try to win – I am more than happy to be involved in this match.”

“I have not heard of Scunthorpe. But we have looked at some videos and the manager has told us a lot about them.”

“It is more like the FA Cup, the League Cup in France is more for teams in the higher divisions not lower divisions. This will be more like an FA Cup game.”

“In France it is the same as England, a smaller team will beat the bigger team.” “We have to be ready for that – we want to get through.” “We have to respect Scunthorpe.”

“They will be motivated to beat us and we have to be ready for that.” “I have experienced upsets in France, it happens. It happened with Rennes once or twice in cup games.”

There have already been some big  shocks in the Carling Cup, with Sunderland going out 1-0 at Brighton, after losing the previous game to their rivals in the north east – Newcastle United!

Sunderland’s Geordie manager Steve Bruce will now be under a little pressure, so early in the season for those two successive defeats.

And QPR lost 2-0 at home to Rochdale, which is why they are now reported making an attempt to sign Joey Barton on a  free transfer from Newcastle.

If that news today is true that Joey is in talks with QPR, we think it’s very likely he will sign on for the London club, if they can offer him a  good four year deal.

And newly promoted Norwich lost 4-0 at home to Milton Keynes Dons in the Carling Cup yesterday, and Swansea City lost 3-1 at Shrewsbury Town.

We do not want to see Newcastle a casualty at Scunthorpe, and that’s why we think Pardew will field a good side, in a competition that’s the easiest one for Newcastle to win, and get our first trophy in 43 years.

Howay The Lads!!

    “How can you argue against the current policy”

    Striker sold 8 months ago – no replacement

    Enrique sold 6 mil or whatever – no replacement#

    Joey going to be sold for FREE – 3 games into the season

    Ben Arfa – Crocked

    Tiote and his family are happy due to the 6 year contract – hence why he is playing sh*te

    Relying on a pay as you go mobile contract to manage our new FRENCH team..

    Being fined left right and centre for tapping up and other formalitites.

    And dont forget the fans that didnt even get their season tickets before the first match.

    But hey this current “policy” ownership are great

    Otterspocket – lots of things go through your head which are loosely based on reality though.I personally guarantee he won’t be here in 2 years, if Ashley is still here. He’s a cash cow- fatten him up, send him to market and sell again,, keep that dosh… and repeat..

    Yes we need another ST but we have actually bought one this summer,
    LB – still time to get one window not shut yet!
    Tiote – He has played 2 games cant expect him to be class every game.
    We have not been fined for tapping up.

    I am not saying everything is great but we have signed good players under this regime and thats what my point was.

    If Barton goes, I expect jonas to switch to right wing.

    Jonas – Cabaye – Tiote – Marveaux

    subs: Gosling, Ben Arfa (soon), Guthrie, Ferguson

    Midfield isn’t our problem… but we need 2-3 new strikers and a left back

    otterspocket – been reading your posts on last article, what a muppet! trying to sound like you know our supposed ‘business model’ n ‘all that…we’ve released a few players now and all were on good wages…these wages are no longer being paid, our wage bill now must be £100,000 or so less per week now so dont come on here defending Ashley n co when there IS money for players and there IS money for wages….which should also add, should be paid from TV rights and the games money we recieved (little suprise this money has been kept quiet)….we are being milked dry, Ashley is a businessman and is only trying to make money, DarloGeordie has summed it up perfectly and you cannot argue with ANYTHING that he has said there, so go shove yer blind optimism up yer a**e

    Rest Krul, Collo, Jonas at least

    Drop Bambi get Vikuk and Best up front or Vikuk and Ba. Players who need match fitness, like Marveaux and Tiote should be played in this game to get their sharpness up – The league has to be the priority in my opinion, a cup run is a bonus!

    otterspocket….we haven’t seen these new ‘good’ players play, like you say, just 2 games, so how can you judge them as being ‘good’ signings….and that one striker we’ve signed….jesus, against Arsenal Ameobi made Ba look sh*t, i try to stay positive, sorry, i know we beat the mackems, but they’re awful and will be down there by end of season….i just have no faith in Ashley, Llambias or Pardew, its a horrid state of affairs and we’re the one’s who suffer!

    @boater

    Reading your posts makes my brain hurt, but somehow i get through them, cause i’m astonished with how u speak of the team, it’s bloody fasinating how a supporter can hate his own team so much.
    U put downers on so many of our youngster and new signings, i wonder sometimes what players u actually like.
    U dislike MA and DL, fair enough, but u dislike Pardew, and obviously, Gosling, Marveux, Vuckic looks like they’ll never do anything for us according to u.

    You say all these things, and u call MA a cash cow, do u know how much the club lost in 2009/2010 season?
    Just asking, gimme an answer, surely u know since u can say these things about MA for one…

    just gettin out me pit after night shift expecting good news on incomings but again its news on barton leaving. getting increasingly frustated looks like our owner doesnt want us fans to have 2 good days in a row. im not confident on a left back or stiker comig in. never mind a replacment for joey which i think pardew promised.

    Hmmm, we’d better start hoping that no decent outfit bid 10 mill for Colo, cos he’s be sold…..and then the “happy clappies” will be on here telling us about his mistakes, and our new model of running the club and developing youth etc. You know what? I’d say Carroll could have offered to take a pay CUT and Ashley would still have had the helicopter waiting for him!!! What a fat useless bastid.

    Doctapaul – not bad

    I think this would be the future midfield/CF

    ———Cabaye———Tiote————-
    Jonas —–Gosling/Arfa———– Marv
    —————New striker——————

    Obertan for Jonas last 20-30 mins. Or put Arfa on the Right or Left wing (depending on run of play and form of Jonas and Marv) and put on another striker.

    @12 – Would never happen there is too much passion and opinion in this club… I still do believe that it is all the fact that there is no communication out of NUFC bar AP and his backroom staff… if there was a statement from MA or DL then all would settle a little… or go bust… one or the other…

    Totally agree with you there mate.

    Im no fan of MA, but he was putting his own money in week in week out in the 2009/10 season just to keep us afloat and ensure we could keep the players to get us back into the EPL.

    I’m a bit shocked at your post, u usually know better.

    Tiote playing shite cause he has a 6 year contract?`
    Cmon man, get real…
    Ben Arfa crocked, did his leg not flippin break?
    And wasn’t he tackled quite hard to mess up ligaments in his foot?`

    Thats anger for something odd speaking, nothing sensible whatsoever.

    looking forward to see this lad playing.
    ed, dont think he will pushing jonas, should take the left wing spot with jonas moving to the rigth hand side.
    cabaye and tiote centrally and either gosling or ben arfa depending on whether we play 4/5 in midfield.
    i believe this is arguably the strongest midfield outside the top 4/5.
    my concern as with all fans is depth.

    If Barton goes then he has shown that he has as much ambition as Nolan, getting a BIG contract. Also i would like to Gosling play more…think he is a good player.

    Also do people think its worth Newcastle exploring the loan market as i can only see a left back coming into the squad, hope im wrong but us fans are usually correct.

    I think it is brilliant news because of a few things:

    > JB has cost us a fortune since he came to the club.
    > We stood by him and paid him while he was banged up.
    > Has had, at best 2 good seasons for us since he came.
    > Disruptive amongst the players.
    > Has to play out of position just to be in the team, but even then there are better players who should be in that position.
    > AP wont drop him, no matter how crap he plays, coz he don’t want him to fire off again.
    > Almost started a fight in BOTH games so far this season.
    > Sticks his nose into set pieces but he is terrible at taking them.
    > He would have been leaving at the end of this season anyway (if he could manage that long without another outburst)
    > He just can’t control his gob or his temper.

    Roblee- it may not be relavent but did you know how highly spoken of Ba was by the West Ham fans, they LOVED him almost worshipped him. I have faith that he will be a good player, not a 20 + a season man mind…
