Simpson, Steven Taylor, Williamson And Shola Ameobi All Start


Alan Pardew has named a strong line-up for the game against Hartlepool United tonight, with Danny Simpson, Steven Taylor, Mike Williamson and Shola Ameobi all in the starting line up.

Youngsters James Tavernier, Gael Bigirimana and Romain Amalfitano are also in the starting line-up and Hatem Ben Arfa is on the bench, and the French International could see some playing time in the second half.

But some of Newcastle’s top players are not even on the bench, including Yohan Cabaye, and will no doubt be fully involved in the game at Cardiff City this coming Saturday afternoon.

New signing Curtis Good is also on the bench,  and is likely to get on in the second half tonight.

Teams:

Hartlepool United: Flinders, Austin, Baldwin, Hartley, Horwood, Franks, Walton, Sweeney, Monkhouse, James, Howard.
Subs: Murray, Luscombe, Holden, Poole, Tuck, Wignall.

Newcastle United (4-2-3-1): Steve Harper; Danny Simpson, Steven Taylor, Mike Williamson, James Tavernier; James Perch, Gael Bigirimana; Romain Amalfitano, Dan Gosling, Sylvain Marveaux; Shola Ameobi (c)
Substitutes: Jak Alnwick, Davide Santon, Ryan Taylor, Curtis Good, Mehdi Abeid, Haris Vuckic, Hatem Ben Arfa, Gabriel Obertan

    Lol. Ed, I can only begin to think of the comments you’re going to get based on that comment.

    “Alan Pardew has named a strong line-up for the game against Hartlepool United tonight, with Danny Simpson, Steven Taylor, Mike Williamson and Shola Ameobi all in the starting line up.”

    3 of the most criticised players in the team and the player that cannot seem to stay fit. 🙂

    With the look of the bench, it would seem Benny will get some playing time tonight.

    Hopefully, if pardew wants him fit for spurs then he’ll need some playing time tonight.

    Super Magpie…Indeed. I hope he’s come ready to cause havoc on the field. It’s been a long summer and I need some Arfa magic to get me ready for the season. Not that I’m not excited enough as it is.

    Disagree. Not fair play at all. Come on Ruddy, each super hero has to make their sacrifice for the good of their respective community. Hope all is well and the recovery is going to plan.

    Jak Alnwick is better than Rob Elliot for sure, but I believe Jak would need some first-team playing time.

    Kyo, I see you don’t have any trust in our youngsters at all.

    I like Bigi and Sammy, but I’m hoping for 5th again or even 4th and lets face it we need senior signings to get that.

    Guys, let’s be reasonable. I mean, we are up against Hartlepool tonight, we should be at full strength.

    I’m going to regret this comment if we lose, aren’t I?

    Ibiza, when will you realise I don’t like you and was only keeping it as cordial as I could with everyone on here, while I was intent on being a prominent poster on the blog? I don’t know you – we are not friends like your manner purports, so climb out of my bottom, please? 😀

    Kyo…But this is a friendly during the first week of August. It has no bearing on what transfers we may or may not bring in or our league position.

    I get you’re not happy with the window so far, but shall we enjoy the game?

    THAT’S IF THIS STREAM WORKS…..AAAHAHGAU

    Happy.

    I am really looking forward to see Gosling again; has really been one of the highlights for me this pre-season.

    Alfi is another player I am looking forward to see; heard a lot of good stuff about him the last two games or so.

    Benny will have his time in the limelight tonite I would think 🙂
