Sylvain Marveaux Man Of The Match Last Night


French winger Sylvian Marveaux, who is coming back from two years of injury hell at Rennes and Newcastle, has so far garnered 57% of the votes in our poll for Newcastle’s Man of the Match last night.

Sylvain Marveaux, had decent game last night

Sylvain was the one who was brought down for the penalty for Newcastle, that led to the first goal, when he moved into the Braga penalty area and showed some tremendous skills on the ball, and was brought down for what was a definite penalty, although before that, and also in the second half, Demba Ba seemed to be fouled, but no penalty was given for some strange reason.

Sylvain showed some excellent skills on the ball last night, but he needs to be more consistently in the game, and was missing for portions of last night’s game, in which Braga were much better than we thought they’d be.

Colocccini had another sound game for Newcastle at the back, and is second on 11% with young Sammy Ameobi, who looks about seven foot tall these days, is in third place on 10%.

Who Was Newcastle's Best Player Against Braga?

    Can say this notion that we will only get a striker if ba leaves is total rubbish we are clearly lacking striker options

    I only got to watch the second half but Marvy looked a much better player than he has at times in the past!! Hopefully he can remain injury free and continue to improve, he could become an important player for us!!

    We’ve got rid of 2 squad strikers think we will replace them by 1 quality.. Whether that’s Andy Carroll .. Remy or one of Carr’s wonder scouts i don’t mind but we need options specially for the ACN

    Very composed and amazing accuracy with his passes.

    He’ll be a star this season if he keeps fit.
    Obertan looking much better than last season.

    Gabby is this seasons Perch?
    He is a confidence player. The crowd need to especially get behind this guy.

    Sing his name and suppress the groans if he cocks-up.

    Sammy looking good too, lots of options on our wings this season.

    Football’s a funny game. Cisse and Ba are match winners.

    Ivory Coast will start favourites but Senegal have lots of quality players.

    Only problem with strikers is they cost a lot! Solution this season may be to play one up top with 5 across midfield a we have an abundance of midfielders / wingers. Only problem is we don’t have a Lampard like midfielder who will get goals. Sigaurdson would have been good! Alternatively we could play hba upfront or at a push obertan.. But there would need to be a crisis. ACON will b a crisis!!

    I would go for niang from Caen as I doubt he will be massive cash, only 17/18 with lots of first team experience already. Only problem is he is on trial with arsenal so think it will b highly unlikely.

    Abeid and Bigi look excellent prospects.
    Will they get the nod over Perch?

    I’m quite happy with Jonas as DM. Prefer him there to at FB or on the wing.

    Anita would be a huge step forward.
    Can’t see us losing money as he’s expected to be a huge star.

    Everyone keeps talking about ACON. Losing Ba and Cisse.

    There is a very go chance they are not going.

    Senegal drew Ivory coast in the ACON playoff. One of them teams will not go. Therefore, we keep either the Dembas or Tiote during The ACON.

    My money is on Ivory coast 🙂

    I honestly believe debuchy deal is done that’s why clubs arnt looking at him, Anita has said how much he wants to join us but think this will happen near the end of the window along with petiers on deadline day after Dutch revealed we hav an agreement with his agent we will sign once he’s fit

    Really happy for cabaye scoring goals for France and agree if he played more advanced then he would get goals. Though after villa away at start of the season he would bag around 10 from midfield. How many did he actually score? 4-6? However cabaye looked like he had reached another level over the summer so really excited as to what he can do this year for the toon

    It’s obvious that 4/5 new players will turn us into a champions league outfit. We need to show a bit of ambition and get them signed up. We know which areas we are weak in.

    Is marveaux’s playing style similar to Steven ireland? Haven’t seen enough of marveaux to know but hoping someone could clear this up? I have herd a lot that marveaux is like Malouda and that in my opinion Malouda is not very similar to Ireland

    That’s my point though last season cabaye was sitting with tiote so was deeper if we got Anita to do that job n move cabaye forward he would get over 10 goals

    You say we lack height!!!

    Cisse is 6,6
    Ba is 6,3
    Shola is 6,3
    Sammy is 7,0!!!(according to Ed, lol)

    We don’t lack height, we lack another speedy, mobile and skilful striker. Maybe Remy can do that, but if Senegal get knocked out and ba stays it’s less of an issue and we can bring Campbell through gradually.

    Always thought Marveux looks an intelligent player.

    My theory on the transfer window

    There are over 60 days if u include June to keep the fans interested. Some of these days are taken up by games and the rest are speculation. Last season we were very secretive in the transfer market. This year it has seemed like we have signed each player twice (for good it will be about 3 times as we thought he would sign last week) and have nearly signed about 5 others with low bids. As a fan this has kept me entertained. The whole Carroll saga has gone on for weeks now and has definitely engaged the fans who from gauging the mood on here has preoccupied the bloggers.

    Personally think we have a very strong 1st 11 and significantly stronger squad from last season but still think we will add a few more to add competition and allow youngster to go out on loan. Look at the effect last season has had on tav!

    It’s weighing up who we need against who we want. We need Debuchy if Simpson doesn’t sign a new contract (although pushing Tav wouldn’t be the worst thing) and we need a young defender and a young striker who wouldn’t mind warming the bench.

    This is why I don’t think we’ll sign Carroll or Remy. Even if we rotate our squads (which doesn’t seem to be Pardews style, but I guess he’ll have to adapt) I can’t see either of them being happy to play a “bit-part” role. Carroll’s just spent 18 months doing that at Liverpool…

    Likewise, we don’t “need” Anita or any other centre-mids. Guthrie grew disillusioned behind Cabaye and Tioté. It’s better to push the younger players like Bigi, Abeid or Gosling. I’d even go as far as to say that we don’t need any more wingers. HBA, Jonas, Marveaux, Sammy and Gabby – and potentially Ba – are more than enough. And having Marveaux will be like having a new player.

    I don’t think we’ve signed many new players because we haven’t needed to. We have an owner who doesn’t like spending over-the-odds on a players value. He definitely won’t sign a player if he isn’t absolutely necessary to the progression of the squad. That’s business.

    I know I am going to get some stick with this comment but the penalty was bought, just saw the highlights and slowed the action down. Sylvain changes direction very quickly, both feet come off the ground and he brings his knee’s/legs up and contacts with their defenders outstreatched leg. Excellently done.
