Liverpool Will Be Ready For Newcastle


It may not be the best time to play Liverpool.

Alan Pardew – will have our lads ready on Sunday

Liverpool beat Newcastle 3-1 on December 30th, and it was only the second time this season that The Reds have scored 3 goals at home in a league game – the other time being when they beat Bolton 3-1 in August.

But this year in the league Liverpool have been abysmal, and in 11 games they have won only two, drawn two and lost seven – so that’s only 8 points out of a possible 33.

That’s a terrible slump for a club like Liverpool, but  they will be trying to come off two losses against relegation sides – QPR and Wigan – and trying to get their season back on track at St. James’ Park with a win.

The last thing Newcastle should be doing is being over-confident, and with Fabricio Coloccini missing the next couple of games, it will be a huge test for this new Newcastle side.

There’s no doubt our lads will be confident after coming off  wins against Norwich and West Brom, and in our 8 remaining there’s only Manchester City who are currently above us in the league table, and they are our last home game on Sunday 6th May.

Former Newcastle players Andy Carool and Jose Enrique will be returning to Newcastle , and while Jose has been as good at Liverpool as he was at Newcastle, that’s not been the case with Andy, who so far has been a big disappointment.

This is a massive game for Newcastle,  because a win will basically submarine Liverpool’s chances of catching Newcastle in the league, since we’ll be 11 points above them with just 7 games remaining.

A win will significantly increase the chances that Newcastle can finish 6th in the league table.

And if the Gods are with us – that may be good enough for a Europa league position – which would be fantastic.

We want to see Newcastle somewhere near their very best form on Sunday, and if they can play like that, we could get revenge  on Liverpool for the 3-1 defeat at Anfield and we’ll all be in orbit.

Howay The Lads!!

    I like to think that Ed spelt Carroll’s name wrong on purpose.

    It’s time for Arfa to rip Liverpool a new bumhole, do it for the entertainers. That’s thrash them and put them where they belong, under the toon in the league forever more.

    If we can play like we did in the first half against WBA we’ll give the bindippers a hammering.

    They aren’t playing well, we seem to be improving … bring them on.

    Yeah and we will be ready for them! Our back four (whoever that is lol) need to be strong & confident for this one. bellamy must get no room from Simmo, unlike last time. Stay back there lad and keep goalside of him. If Tiote is in and fit enough he can safeguard that back line, meantime, as another poster above has keenly observed, this is the game for HBA to mock their defence. I am hoping for more of the flashes of linkup between Ba and HBA that destroyed the baggies at will.

    I watched O’Neill screwing his little old Koala face up into a knot with glee last night, KK’ Klan can go a long way to making his miserable mug go redder than a slapped ass by slipping over like they did at Wigan – we have to be better than them even with a makeshift back four, haven’t we? Oh, and Willo – Let go of his SHIRT!

    I think Liverpool will go with 3 strikers with Carrol up front. Suarez (who’ll fallover everytime Tiote looks at him) and Kuyt(he plays well agaist us) up there too.

    Toon Tom – Without Collo there id go experience at the back and put Simmo in for Santon. Raylor prolly a good bet. Solid.

    Nothing would please me more then to smash the wallettsnatchers and show Enrique and Judas that the 30 pieces of silver wasn’t worth it and Liverpool aren’t a bigger club then the toon. I would rather play at st James then ghat commy park anyday.

    Raylor too slow to play fullback against Liverpool, id play simmo and santone both have pace to cope especially with Jonas backtracking for davide

    We have been unpredictable this season and it depends which team turns up! I am hoping it is the Fulham/WBA first half one and not the second half one. The bin dippers are low on confidence and if we start well and score the opening goal then I’m sure we can go on to win it.

    I hope that Willo can take care of the aerial clearance duties and that Perch will cover the decisive tackling parts – he seems to be pretty precise these days and doesn’t get carded easily. Also I would like Willo to have his arms taped to his sides at the elbows if that’s ok. I also hope that Tim ball-rolling arm finally works and that he does not kick absolutely every ball he gets out into that ‘white space’ inhabited by only seabirds and opposition players pulling the grass out of their studs.

    I also hope that Andy Carroll plays to form and that Bellamy has a last minute fitness test failure. And that we start with them playing into the sun. Not much to hope for, surely?

    Good afternoon all.

    So Collo has been ruled out for 2 games. Not looking likely for Liverpool then. Have we managed to settle the debate of which back line we as fans want and the one that Pardew will go with? I’m pretty sure Pards will go with:

    Simmo – Willo – Perch – Raylor

    The only change I might make is to put Guti in the back for Raylor.

    Maybe put Raylor RM and drop Guthrie? Has anyone noticed that Cabaye’s corners and freekicks haven’t been that good? I’m thinking it’s lack of practice (within games). Raylor has taken most this season and I think it’s thrown Cabaye a bit. What’s your thoughts?

    Good afternoon Ibiza – I think Pardew might play your suggested back four but I also think Sgt. Heagerty @12 makes a valid point so I can’t decide. I don’t think Raylor’s freekicks & corners of late have been very good either. More practice on the training ground maybe?

    Hello Martoon. How’s life on the darkside treating you 😉

    I agree Raylor is too slow, not sure this is the game for speedy FB’s. We need them to stay back and defend. There’s no Collo, need to be bloody tight at the back

    Yes we need Jonas to step up on the falling over lark he’s looking a bit hammy lately and refs aren’t biting any more. Also HBA can milk the damaged leg with a few ‘horror tackle’ recreations to get a few more spot kicks, Raylor should get loads of practice in then.

    Actually I believe there’s a cheating masterclass organised this sunday afternoon at SJP, so if our lads can take a leaf out of Mr Suarez’s pamphlet we might get loads of practice in for both Cabs and Raylor that afternoon.

    Ibiza – it is pretty warm today on the darkside probably as warm as Ibiza! I think we need speed y FBs to cope with Bellamy, Kuyt etc rather than for going forwatd.

    You’re probably right about the FB’s. Need to be able to chase them back as well as stand strong. An interesting week for Pardew. Can he pull it off? Well excited for this game…..come on Sunday, hurry up already

    Honestly I’ve written off this match as Colo is out but I have been stunned before so who knows. Would love to beat them and for our former players to under perform but El Toro will be up for it as will Bellend but reckon Carroll will be ruined but the atmosphere if he plays at all.

    Gerrard is still my main worry he will run riot if he’s allowed space. Cabs on him Tiote on Suarez would be my plan Gutti to hold Bellend/Kuyt which ever of them plays. Let Downing do what he wants as he is pony then hit on the break.

    HE does suffer from impotence but only on days when the talk is slow. The conversation regarding Liverfool is making him more aroused than a rabbit in the playboy mansion.

    Forgot to mention as well that HE is totally not a John o’shea and loves the ladies.

    So is the username connected with this impotence issue?

    For slow talk days “HE” could always try a little blue pill? In the meantime, we shall see what we can discuss to help arouse the poor fella….hmmm, that doesn’t sound quite right 🙂

    Well Ibiza, regarding your query @24, actually this is going to come as a shock, but, along with his dislike of the Jackson 5 he is known to sometimes fall over and attempt to win world cup qualifiers etc with his hands. But you’ll be pleased to know he’s a very good turn at it, so should provide some entertainment and a few laughs along the way for the home crowd.

    Honest looking face? You seriously don’t think he has just his OWN set of teeth in that mush do you? I think he pinched them off Ronaldinho some time back.
