Sylvain Marveaux was our Man of the Match in the 4-3 defeat at Manchester United, and he played well and even hit the cross-bar after 39 minutes when Newcastle were already 2-1 up, and if that had gone in it could have made all the difference, but of course it didn’t and we again ended up with another loss.
Sylvain Marveaux – in training
And Sylvain surprisingly played in the center behind Demba Ba for much of that game, and of course he does have the skill to put some through good passes, and he has also shown recently he has a n eye for goal too, and he went close to scoring against QPR in our last home game.
Alan Pardew is no doubt pleased with the French U21 International’s form of late, and he will definitely start today at the Emirates. This is what Alan
“Initially, he found the pace and power of the Premier League a problem for him.” “But I’ve thought just recently he has captured that part of Premier League football.” “He can play out wide or through the middle, and what he does give us without Hatem and Cabaye, is that clever pass that can make the difference.”
“We’re going to have to look to him to come up with a few of those in the next few games.” “We’ve been looking for that ever since Cabaye got injured. Whereas Cabaye can do it in a 4-4-2, Marveaux would probably struggle to play centrally in that formation. But in a three, he can do it no problem.”
But it’s the Newcastle defense which has been the Achilles heel for Newcastle in too many of our defeats this season, and if we are to get anything out of this game this afternoon, and not end up the year losing eight of our last ten league games, we will need the lads to be strong at the back.
And it would also help if Marveaux puts in another performance like he gave us at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
Howay The Lads!!
