Demba Ba For Shola Ameobi The Only Change


Demba  Ba is set to make a start for Newcastle at Villa Park today.

In fact the team is a little bit of a surprise with Pardew continuing to play in a 4-4-2 formation and Demba Ba coming in for Shola Ameobi up front, is the only change from the side that drew at  QPR at last Monday.

Shola had a poor game last Monday night at QPR, and was expected to be on the bench today, and Rob Elliot remains the back-up goalkeeper, in preference to veteran Steve Harper.

James Perch comes in on the bench, but Dan Gosling is not a  substitute today, surprisingly enough.

But they’ll probably be involved at Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night in the Carling Cup.

Former Newcastle goalkeeper Shay Given is in goal for Aston Villa and former winger Charles N’Zogbia also starts.

Let’s at least hope we can remain unbeaten today.

Howay The Lads!!

Teams:

Aston Villa (4-4-2): Shay Given; Alan Hutton, James Collins, Richard Dunne, Stephen Warnock; Barry Bannan, Stiliyan Petrov, Fabian Delph, Charles N’Zogbia; Gabriel Agbonlahor, Darren Bent
Substitutes: Brad Guzan, Chris Herd, Shane Lowry, Gary Gardner, Stephen Ireland, Marc Albrighton, Nathan Delfouneso

Newcastle United (4-4-2): Tim Krul; Danny Simpson, Steven Taylor, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Ryan Taylor; Gabriel Obertan, Yohan Cabaye, Cheik Tiote, Jonas Gutierrez; Leon Best, Demba Ba
Substitutes: Rob Elliot, James Perch, Danny Guthrie, Sylvain Marveaux, Sammy Ameobi, Peter Lovenkrands, Shola Ameobi

    Pleased to see Ba in for Shola but I’ll say again we need to change from 442, it’s killing Cabaye and Tiote cause the defense keeps punting it long.

    Anyone noticed that Tiote looks a bit like Gary Coleman on the banner?

    With Gutierez on the pitch we’ll never conttrol the midfield the way we need to. I dont understand why Pardew cant see that. Good to see Strolla on the bench where he belongs

    Damnit Kean won a match!!! Gutted with that result wanted a draw! Blackburn can fly high on those chickens straight to SportsDirect.com@St James Park and we can really pluck them next week 😉

    Who is up to date with You Tube politics?

    I uploaded a Cabaye video this morning made up of edited Sky Sports and ESPN footage. Fair enough it has been removed due to ‘F.A. Premier League content’… but how on earth do most others get through and are still on there with hundreds of thousands of views??? I really don’t get it? Literally lists of similar types of editing of players’ games?

    For instance, I’ve just watched a Paul Scholes compilation and a Berbatov one.

    It has been removed less than 5 hours after puttin it up.

    Wish my lottery ticket would be that efficient!

    @ brutoon

    I totaly agree! So happy to see no Shola in the starting 11! But i am a bit sad not to see Ferguson been involved, think he should start for Raylor, or at least make the bench!

    Wrong tactics again.
    Wrong team selection & No Gosling.??
    Long balls again…..

    On a positive note Shola has been dropped. 😉
