Latest Newcastle Injury Update For Sunday


Danny Simpson will again be missing from the Newcastle side to take on Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday, and Perchinho will again be an able deputy.

Alan Pardew – no new injury problems

The only players who are also not fit for Sunday are Steven Taylor, Haris Vuckic and Steve Harper, although it seems Sammy Ameobi is back in training again.

It’s very likely that Alan Pardew will again play an unchanged side for Goodison,  and play in a modified 4-4-2 formation, with both top Senegal strikers Papiss Cisse and Demba Ba up front.

Alan Pardew as usual, is not giving too much away as to what his starting eleven will be, and he had this to say to the local press today:

“We’re well set. Everybody is fit from the team that faced Man City and apart from the long-term we’re OK.”

“The spirits going into Everton are very good, especially after the Chelsea result which confirmed we will finish at least fifth.”

“We’re just looking forward to Sunday now – and going out on a high.”

Everton never give up in any game, and as usual their top manager David Moyes will have his side ready for this game.

Newcastle haven’t had too much luck in this fixture over the years,  but last season we did win 1-0 there,  with that first great goal from Ben Arfa, on 18th September of 2010.

Even though Everton  don’t have much money to spend in the transfer market compared to their wealthy neighbors Liverpool, they are still one point ahead of the Reds, and the two goal differences of the Merseyside teams are identical at +8.

So that’s another reason why the Toffees will be trying to win on Sunday, if they needed another reason.

It should be good game, and all we can hope for is a Newcastle win,  to make it 8 wins in the last ten  games- and that would be something –  and a terrific way to end a great season.

Then we’ll have to see where we finally end up in the league table, and  if we get up to 4th places – we’ll be supporting Bayern Munich on the following Saturday, as they take on Chelsea in Munich in the final of the Champions League.

If Chelsea manage to win that game, and the German club are 4-5 odds-on favorites to win the final on their home ground, then they become the 4th club entered in next year’s competition.

    What do you guys think? Should pardew play 4-4-2 or a 4-5-1 which can be played as a 4-3-3 aswell against everton.

    With Baines injured, The Toffees have been playing Distin at LB; HBA will have too much zip for him and Distin is a klutz when it comes to facing good dribblers.

    3-1 The Toon!

    if we dont get into CL this season which is looking likly(if you look at bookies odds) i wont be able to hide the feeling of disappointment, i know 5th place is fantastic and would have bit your 2 hands of 4 it at the start of the season. i just feel we deserve it glory. if we miss out il never forget the recent wigan game,it all could have been so different,we just didnt show up. i suppose its just natural , whats meant to be is meant to be. i just think alot of neutral supporters look at the uefa cup as a waste of time and energy! i couldnt be arsed with the chant ‘your on ch5 with stan and pat’ lol. two pundits which really annoy me! i want to be playing saturdays not just sundays!! UP THE TOON REGARDLESS of what happens

    The cynic in me thinks that Simpson is being left out because of his refusal (love of more money) to sign a new deal , if this is his stance then he should know that he wont win against Ashley and as Barton, Carroll, Jose and Nolan have all found out, he’s easily replaced

    @dannyboy you can’t look at a season that way. Yes the Wigan result was a disappointment but had we won there there’s every likely hood the team might not have been as fired up against Chelsea and we may have lost. Yes CL football would be amazing but considering we’re only in our second year back in the league, finished 12th last year, if you had offered me 5th, with a fight for 4th, at the start of the season I would have bitten your hand off. My only concern right now is holding on to all our quality players in the summer, if we can do that then there’s no telling where we can finish next season.

    I said on a previous thread that at the begining of the season i would have been delighted with a top 10 finish. Our main objective (from a fans point of veiw) would be to finish above the great unwashed.

    Top 5 and European football is a spectacular acheivment and even if we didnt qualify for the CL i am chuffed to bits with this season.

    lads I haven’t posted on here for about 3-4 years, been a long long time, but have beenr reading religiously ever since. Found out my old password so I could sign on and say Neilinho I made that same bet on Betfair and got £408 for a fiver! Deffo shop around next time. I reckon that will be a popular bet for the weekend…

    Simpson can go. If he would rather play at a lower team for more money then just get rid. Has he learnt nothing from our previous outgoings!? The rumours about him and Chelsea are bonkers. No champions league team will take him… I could see him at a Fulham or a Liverfool for 20 mill. 🙂

    He’s been a good RB for us but he is replaceable.

    As for Best, i really like him. He deserves to play in a starting 11 somewhere in the premier league. I would love him to stay and be used as a sub and to be an extra body incase of injuries etc.

    @SuperShearer – i understand were your comeing from but i think we might have beat chelsea regardless, there mind has been on CL final for a while now,u could flip the coin and say that could have pumped us up even more, but who knows i suppose. but fully agree with you on keeping the quality players situation. if we got CL why the hell would anybody want to leave,great team spirit, city,manager and supporters ! it would give us a incredible platform to attract that bit of ‘extra’ quality player compared to what we would get being in the uefa that we need to compete with the big boys again next year. the CL is were everybody wants to be as the two dembas have mentioned before!

    Agreed with the Pardew thing but they dont like the North East, it’ll be given to Brendan Rodgers, newly promoted team and it keeps the Welsh from complaining.

    As a Welshman myself I’ll be complaining if Pardew doesn’t get manager of the year, selling three of our top players and giving one away for nothing and taking us to the last game of the season with a chance of taking third in the league,all while having the wage bill reduced and not spending anything other the money brought in from the sale of Carroll.
    I know I’m biased but its a no brainer for me 🙂

    davy – Agree mate, Barton, Nolan, Carroll and Jose should be the example, they are all earning more money but all have taken a backwards step to do so, if thats what Simpson wants then ship him out asap Tavernier is more than capable of replacing him

    Seeing as I can comment again for the first time in so long I just wanna say davybtoon your posts have been an absolute pleasure to read for the last couple years – your optimism is first class and it was great to see all the n*bheads who were calling you deluded disappear after we started playing so well. Fine work. Also, ToonDownSouth – you are a bit of a sanctimonious chap but I’ve never found myself disagreeing with anything you say; you’re a paragon of reason!

    Afternoon all…

    I’ll try and catch up with the various convos.

    Simpson – Great if he stays, fine if he goes. Solid player, but certainly replaceable. For him, I think he should think long and hard what he really wants from his career.

    Manager of the year – Has to be Pardew, if it isn’t they would have made a huge mistake – which we all know they’re capable of. Most know he’s the man this season and although it would be nice for him to get the formal recognition at the end of the day it wont matter too much.

    Europe – Minimum 5th, auto qualification for EL already. Hopefully we’ll give Everton a great game on Sunday and give ourselves the best chance of CL (depending on Spurs, Arsenal and of course Chelsea in the CL Final). Either way, we’re way ahead of target and can look forward to some great extra games next season – Woo hoo!

    🙂 🙂 🙂

    @Dannyboy agree with CL attracting better calibre of players but from what Carr has been doing I think we can attract and continue to unearth some real gems. I’d still rather pay 7Mil for a Carr find than £20Mil for a ‘superstar’. Football is rapidly changing the way it does business and I’m so happy our team is at the front of that steep learning curve and looking for value for money over a prolonged period of time rather than another Michael Owen type purchase.
