Vurnon Anita Has A Little Girl – And A Smile On His Face

At the end of his press conference yesterday morning, Alan Pardew was asked how Vurnon Anita was doing, and what his girlfriend had – so to speak.

Vurnon Anita in action on Monday night – before becoming a father

Vurnon had to leave the training camp in Madeira when his girlfriend had gone into labor with their first child, and it seems there has been a happy outcome, with Vurnon is now the proud father of a baby girl.

And of course Vurnon’s life will now change in a big big way, as all those parents out there will fully appreciate. 😀

This is what Alan said yesterday:

“Vurnon has had a little girl and he’s got a smile on his face and his life is about to change in a very different way, and some of the other lads can point him in that way with late nights and the wife’s demands.”

That’s great news, and we wish the new parents and the baby all the best, and we do expect Vurnon to play today, probably in defensive midfield with James Perch at right back.

And of course two of Newcastle’s most versatile players can also switch those positions, which they did int he second half against Everton, and both did very well in those last 45 minutes, and it was a terrific point the lads took out of Goodison Park on Monday night.

Now we need to get all 3 points this afternoon against Norwich City – to keep the momentum going.

Howay The Lads!!

    good news for him

    would rather see him start at right back though with perch in midfield as iv never been impressed with perch at rb and anita has looked quality there, also perch plays the ball out well from the centre

    That’s great news, I say give him the weekend off, it’s not often special moments like this come around. Hope mother and baby are doing well.

    I think Perch really is a pretty good DM,who can provide decent cover at center back depending on who were playing and less so at fullback, but can play there in a pinch. If he plays today I hope it’s at DM, but I’m really hoping the Cheik beast is fit and starts, with Anita at fullback

    @5 I think everyone would agree with that, Anita at FB and Perch/Tiote (if fit) as DM is a no brainer really.

    I think Tiote once fully fit will transform the team, our midfeild is so much stronger when he plays. I think he’ll show he’s the difference between us drawing or winning games.

    Congrats to Vurnon. He’ll feel like the luckiest man alive – until the sleepless nights kick in! lol.
    But my advice would be: dont call her Anita!
    If its a choice with Perch and Anita, Perch has to play at DM and Anita at RB. Wor Vurnon is far more accomplished at RB than Perch! And Perch can do a job at DM.
