Tavernier Back From Loan – Perch Should Be Banned – Nonsense!


James Tavernier, who is well thought of at Newcastle,  has returned from his loan spell at MK Dons, and he goes straight into the squad for the Good Friday game at Swansea City.

James Tavernier – 20 year-old back from loan spell at MK Dons

James has gained a lot of experience over the last 14 months or so on loan at Gateshead (18), Carlisle  United (17), Sheffield Wednesday (8) and MK Dons (6) where he has played a total of 49 games.

And when he returned from Sheffield Wednesday in February, James was very impressive in training,  and manager Alan Pardew said he looked as good as current first choice right-back Danny Simpson.

It seems that Alan Pardew wants to have a look at the lad,  and see how good Tavernier is,  and we expect him to make some sub appearances over the last 7 games of the season.

And it could be that he could become the replacement for Danny Simpson next season, if the former Manchester United player refuses to sign his new deal before the summer, although we expect at least one new left-footed full-back to be drafted in the summer – probably Erik Pieters of PSV.

This is what James said on the Newcastle web-site today about his loan spell:

“It was very beneficial for me,” “It was another loan spell which allowed me to go out and play games, which is what I need, and I really enjoyed it.”

“A knee injury stopped me from playing a few games but I still enjoyed it and hopefully they can go on and get promotion.”  “I hope they get to Wembley in the play-offs and go up.”

“I’d have loved to have had the chance to play at Wembley so it’s disappointing in some ways that I won’t be able to now, but it’s great being called back.”

“And now I might be involved in the last few games of the season for Newcastle, which is exciting. Hopefully that can happen but we’ll wait and see.”

And there has been a lot of nonsense written about the Pepe Reina – James Perch incident on Sunday, and we see a number of Liverpool’s current and former players have chipped in.

Liverpool full-back Glen Johnson tweeted this a couple of day ago:

“What have I just seen? Is Perch for real?! Joke,”

Was it also a joke that Reina butted James Perch and totally lost his control – it’s not James’ fault that Reina now misses three games and the semi-final against Everton, and we noticed there was no appeal of the red card made by Liverpool.

And why do these footballers get involved with these things – they are not supposed to comment on the incidents in games.

And former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore had this to say today:

“Not many suggesting punishments for diving, so is it now with us for good? I say give Carroll/Perch three game bans. They won’t do it again.”

Do what again for Perch?

James was head-butted by the Liverpool goalkeeper – we suppose he wanted James sent off and Pepe slapped on the back for head-butting Perch.

As we said earlier, there’s  been some utter nonsense written since Sunday about that incident,  after Newcastle walloped Liverpool 2-0 and were the better side and are now 11 points clear of Liverpool.

We know Liverpool fans and Liverpool players are not in the best of spirits at the moment – the side has lost six of their last seven league games – but they should look at their own players and not the opposition for where the problem lies.

Liverpool’s revival has to start with their players  starting to step up to the plate,  which they haven’t done this year in the league,  having gained a paltry 8 points from their last 12 games, and 3 of those points were against a badly weakened Everton side.

And so as not to embarrass the Liverpool management, we are not even going to mention that Kenny Dalglish has spent close to £120M on new players in the last 15 months.

Comments welcome.

    Scrap that, he’s been dismissed 😆

    Beattie

    We have to at least be considering Hoillet, although there’ll be swarms of clubs trying to lure him, think he’d be the ideal replacement/upgrade from Loven . Douglas and Pieters I think are inbound. Then a CM I reckon, Corgnet has been heavily linked earlier in the season, although I’d love for us to get Adam Maher from AZ.

    Who knows what’s in store though. I’m much more relaxed about this approaching summer, compared to last.

    Champions League is ruined by refs being too strict. I’ve saw more replays than football so far. Good going Chelsea though. Is it right that we play them just after they play Barcelona if they win tonight?

    @beattie. Phillipe Albert in a shock return.
    Failing that Colo will be back. Or we’d worryingly have Simpson at cb again with perch. Raylor, santon, tav, ferg as options for fb

    Beattie 25 @83 he might try tavernier there I have seen him play CB a couple of times. If not he would probably go with Simpson. Personally if that situation comes about why not try Santon there he is quick and tall however not sure of his strength though and he would need to be disciplined and stay at CB.

    @88 no worries. Anyone know which player it is that’s supposed to be a done deal? Newcastle admitted they’ve as good as signed one player, but i’ve found different names on different sites. It looks to me to be Erik Pieters?

    @97 Douglas possible on a bosman. As for us saying we aren’t signing any free players…. Well with agents fees etc. No player is actually free. So might be playing games there

    I agree. Swans play pretty football but crumble when harried. They have good players for passing the ball about but they can’t handle being pressured. Thats how everton and tottenham went into the games against them

    Yea we look likely to sign Douglas and Pieters. Hopefully Corgnet and I’m not too sure striker wise yet. Depends if Demba signs new contract.

    If Perch is out well erm um erm…

    Do you think Tav will stat in the CB berth? Don’t think I want to see either santon or simmo in there. Are you SURE we don’t have anyone else left? What about that Kadar lad, I hear he’s ok 🙂

    Its sour grapes…lets face it our boys are playing better and supporting one another as a team….Liverpool are just capitulating.
    Here’s to the boy’s pushing up the table and asking questions of the other teams around them. Chelsea, Spurs and the Gunners are all within our reach.

    Howay the lads.

    I guarantee Gerald doesn’t have that poster. He plays at king kennys klanfield. Only reason Glenn Johnson is still there is because he hides his skin colour under a white hood and robe.
