For the second game in a row, Sylvain Marveaux set up the winning goal for Papiss Cisse in added time last night against Anzhi, and since our injury crisis which started last November, this Frenchmen has probably taken advantage of the opportunity he got in the first team – more than any other Newcastle player.
The Newcastle team last night – Marveaux is front and center
– in more ways than one
Sylvain was troubled by injuries last season at Newcastle, and even before that he had trouble at Rennes before he joined Newcastle, and in November of 2010 he aggravated a groin injury that had been bothering him during the season, and Sylvain did not play again for the rest of that season.
And of course in June of the following year, he signed on at Newcastle as a free agent, while Liverpool delayed signing him after he undertook a medical at Anfield – for whatever reason.
But this season has been another story for this lad, and he has so far played 30 times for Newcastle with two goals, and with Ben Arfa injured and out for the season, Sylvain becomes even more important to Newcastle through the rest of this season.
The lad has looked an excellent player over these last two or three months, and he was again one of Newcastle’s best players last night, and found a way to win the game at the death.
We want to give credit to Sylvain Marveaux for coming along so well at Newcastle this season, and he’s looked a very good player in the famous black and white stripes of Newcastle .
He’s looked over the last three months like the player we though we signed in the summer of 2011 – and how much did he cost again? 😀
Sylvain played 11 times for the French U21 side several years ago, and if he keeps up his excellent form of late – who knows – he may even get a call-up to the full France squad.
And then how many French Internationals will we have playing at Newcastle?
Howay The Lads!!
