Coloccini, Ben Arfa And Tiote All Start – No Sissoko

The Newcastle team has just been announced and Ben Arfa starts along with captain Fabricio Coloccini, who returns to the side after missing the last 12 games with a back injury.

It seems that Newcastle will play in a 4-3-3 formation this afternoon with Cabaye, Tiote and Gutierrez the middle three and the three up front are Ben Arfa, Papiss Cisse and Yoan Gouffran – and no sign of Moussa Sissoko even on the subs bench.

Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa starts at left back and Danny Simpson comes in at right back for the suspended Mathieu Debuchy.

So we don’t know if Moussa is injured or has just been completely rested for today – after starting every game since he was signed from Toulouse in late January.

Of the starting eleven,  seven of the team were regulars last season - so there’s  lot more experience in the side than we had against Liverpool last Saturday – good!

And young local lad Adam Campbell again makes the bench for the side today, so he must be looking good in training.

For West Ham former Newcastle captain Kevin Nolan leads out the side today and former Newcastle striker Andy Carroll leads the attack.

This is simply a massive game for Newcastle and we just have to be strong and play well, and try to get something out of the game.

Howay The Lads!!

    Girard has managed Nîmes, Strasbourg, Pau FC and multiple France youth teams. He coached the France national under-21 football team from 2004-08. On 3 June 2009 he became the new head coach of Montpellier, replacing Rolland Courbis. In the 2011-12 season, Montpellier shocked the footballing world by winning its first Ligue 1 title, finishing the season with 82 points, three more than runner-up Paris Saint-Germain. He said after his team won it. “I think our triumph is a real shot in the arm for French football. “It just goes to show that everyone can beat everyone and that money isn’t the be-all and end-all. We’re a club of mates, a club that brings young players through and gives them a chance. “At the end of the day, it’s worked out well for us. We played some great football, with a well-balanced team and I’m overwhelmed.”

    rene girard the best transfer we can hope for this summer

  • 8 El Sleeve // May 4, 2013 at 2:09 PM

    perch and anita for tiote and jonas but at least this looks like we may go 4-3-3, which is a start.

  • 9 toon22 // May 4, 2013 at 2:10 PM

    Would have played Williamson instead of Taylor
    Come on the Toon!!!!!!!!!

    Jack butler
    He better bring belhanda with him!

    Tbh at the moment i could give a toss who may or may not be managing us next season, only intrested in getting a result today

    Like it or not lads we need pardew to suceed in the next 3 games our future depends on him

  • 12 Spoof // May 4, 2013 at 2:15 PM

    Sissoko is out due to an injury to his ankle which he picked up in training, a Newcastle player injured in training, no way, I don’t believe that could ever happen ?

  • 13 breno95 // May 4, 2013 at 2:15 PM

    From previuos thread.
    New faces were demanded by most and majority were very happy to see increasing intake of french players but to me its sometimes a case of better the devil you know.
    How many on here would have more confidence in surviving eith this 11
    Harper
    simpson
    saylor
    colo
    raylor
    arfa
    perch
    cabaye
    routledge
    carrol
    cisse
    That 11 has an english theme to it and i for one would expect PL footie next year more confidently with that 11 than the 11 named today. Yes 2 have left and injury has denied raylor but it has a goid balance to it.
    Just a thought.

  • 14 JackButler // May 4, 2013 at 2:16 PM

    For some reason that posted twice???

  • 15 hugotoon // May 4, 2013 at 2:16 PM

    A reasonable and attacking line up! Thanks Christ for that!!

  • 16 hdavid23 // May 4, 2013 at 2:17 PM

    Tioté? Really? C’mon Pards… btw I don’t know, I’m starting to feel we have way more than enough Frenchmen, don’t want a French manager as well…

  • 17 toonbrother // May 4, 2013 at 2:17 PM

    I i think this is a fairly decent line up. Finally Pardumb makes a brave decision -leaving sissoko on the bench. Very concerned about colocinni starting but here’s hoping for the best

  • 18 Cisse's Big Toe // May 4, 2013 at 2:17 PM

    if girard came and brought belhanda that would be pretty special ;)

  • 19 JackButler // May 4, 2013 at 2:17 PM

    Would e interesting to know the percentage of of our injuries that have been picked up in training???

  • 20 toonbrother // May 4, 2013 at 2:18 PM

    |I’d rather we brought benitez to tyneside than the montpeillier coach to be honest

  • 21 Newcastle for alltid // May 4, 2013 at 2:18 PM

    Happy to see Ben Arfa and Gouffran start. As much as opinions might be divided on Gouffran, I think he’s a hard-working player who can put in a shift when needed.
    I would rather see Anita on instead of Gutierrez, but this may be the best we can throw out there at the moment, looking at the subs.

    I’m not optimistic, as I feel that West Ham has got more of an overall plan with their game than we do. But today we really need tempo and accuracy so that we can bring the game to West Ham and put them under pressure.

    A new manager usually brings 1 or 2 players from his previous club, which means more Frenchmen, would that be wise !

    It would be if he were able to get the best out of them and the ones that are already here

  • 29 Jamiemac // May 4, 2013 at 2:23 PM

    Can we stop talking about replacing the manager for now and start concentrating on the game please!!!!????

    Happy with that line up, probably exactly what i would have chosen. It could be a 4-4-2 though with Cisse and Gouff up top and Jonas on left.

  • 30 Cisse's Big Toe // May 4, 2013 at 2:23 PM

    kazenga lualua has scored two for brighton take them into playoffs

  • 31 catchy in norway // May 4, 2013 at 2:24 PM

    no problem with more french at he club

    the problem isnt the french, thats just a smoke screen, deflecting away from pardew, who is the real problem

    carnt figure out this line up, yes HBA starts, but why jonas???

  • 32 GeordieDan // May 4, 2013 at 2:24 PM

    Dannyo>

    Then its either a flook or they shouldn’t be broadcasting our squad early!

    Doubt anyone would actually pay any attention at West Ham like but why give them ANY advantage of knowing our line-up early?

    Jeezuz I’m paranoid right now. :D

    PLEASE WIN TODAY NUFC!!!!

  • 33 jimiley // May 4, 2013 at 2:24 PM

    Three statements that prove the dead man walking is a clown.

    August 2012; The squad is big enough and good enough to do well.

    Some time in 2012; Everton and Newcastle operate on a different level. (Just the wrong way around matey)

    About 6 weeks ago; We do not need to worry about relegation

    You could not make it up!!!!!

  • 34 Novocastrian66 // May 4, 2013 at 2:25 PM

    No Sissoko?

  • 35 GeordieDan // May 4, 2013 at 2:27 PM

    Catchy>

    When we played 4-3-3 last year he had Cabaye Tiote and Jonas in the central 3 and it worked very well for us so I’m guessing Pardew’s tiny little imagination has led him back to that to save us.

    Admittedly though all 3 have had shocking seasons this time so they’d better remember what they used to do from the start today!

  • 36 JP...from The Rock // May 4, 2013 at 2:27 PM

    That’s a strong line-up and one that should win this match comfortably. Knowing us we won’t put things easy for ourselves and could possibly shoot ourselves in the foot with an early goal for the opposition. Yet if we do play well finally, then this team should rip West Ham a new one!

  • 37 ArtyH // May 4, 2013 at 2:28 PM

    Any streams for the match today guy’s?
    My internet is really slow today, how’s everyone elses?

  • 38 JackButler // May 4, 2013 at 2:28 PM

    @Catchy

    Will be the usual 4-2-3-1 with HBA in the number 10 position, Cabaye and Tiote sitting deeper and Jonas and Gouffran out wide with Cisse alone up top

  • 39 JP...from The Rock // May 4, 2013 at 2:28 PM

    Is Gutierrez going to play CM again? Why not Anita??

  • 40 Cisse's Big Toe // May 4, 2013 at 2:29 PM

    coloccini straight back in as captain. hmm

  • 41 JackButler // May 4, 2013 at 2:29 PM

    Sissoko is said to have turned his ankle in training and hasn’t travelled

  • 42 Spoof // May 4, 2013 at 2:29 PM

    Catchy
    As poor as Jonas has been I would start him in the last 3 games, experience in our position could prove vital, Jonas has loads of experience as does Colo, personally I do rate rate either of them but I would play both due to their experience, lets all hope that the pair of them put their experience to good use rather than waste it

  • 43 Dannyo // May 4, 2013 at 2:29 PM

    @GeordieDan
    The team is usually set a couple of days before the game.
    We’ve gotten the lineup the last 3-4 times now, always been spot on, bar one or two players once. Went for it today, and it was spot on all in all areas, including formation.

    Maybe you should let Pardew know then-he seems to struggle to find his own formation. ;)

  • 46 ~ Phoenix Warrior Perch~ // May 4, 2013 at 2:35 PM

    Oh great… tiote is starting again… so… yellow in the first half or yellow in the second?

    Can’t understand why Pardew consistently picks this underperforming player. Can’t wait till he leaves the club.

  • 47 toonking // May 4, 2013 at 2:35 PM

    if sissoko was fit enough to play would the team we see be still likely to have been choosen ?

    last years 433

    we carried both jonas and Ba, IMO
    it was all about cabaye HBA cisse going forward, colo and krul and tiote at the back

    JackButler

    id love ben10 in his right position, FINALY :)

    spoof

    i wouldnt have him any where near the first team, a lot of our problems is because of jonas and his experience, or lack of it in many of the positions we have played him in

    i would go witha new route, ANITA, 2 times the player,

  • 50 Novocastrian66 // May 4, 2013 at 2:39 PM

    Newcastle 3- WHU 2

    pardew has a cat

    pardew puts pictues of the players on the floor

    pardew spinkles a bit of cat nip players like jonas perch, just so there picked
    pardew then lets the cat choose the players

    then pardew writes formations and put them in a hat,, closes his eyes, picks one out, and says yes ,,, defensive,,

    trouble is,, he wrote defensive on 9 out of 10

    Cathchy
    first of all I was talking about his spell in midfield as I said
    an second judging purely from goals and assits is not football there is so much more
    his goal agaisnt wolves and assits agiant totenham were pure quality and you cant deny his contribution he won numerous man of the matches
    he helped taylor to know end with incredible fitness
    he tailed off towards the end of last season and hasint recovered dont know if its due to age tactis or just pure exhaustion but hes a player who deserves are respect

  • 95 hugotoon // May 4, 2013 at 3:24 PM

  • 125 Twatter // May 4, 2013 at 3:39 PM

    Tiote has so far given away, what…. 4 or 5 free kicks? He’s a liability. He breaks up our attacking play and gives away FKs in dangerous positions. Must replace if we stay up.

    They are challenging for it, don’t have to jump to denote a ‘challenge’, if you’re in a position to bring it down without one. Mayb twits like Tiote should learn that you can’t win every ball and employ patience.

    But simply backing into the playing who’s jumping, then tumbling down and claiming you’ve been fouled, it not making an attempt to win the ball.

    Rotonda

    You do realise that that is exactly what you’re doing, right? If we play badly it’s entirely Pardew’s fault, if we play well it’s the players rebelling and doing their own thing?

  • 151 Twatter // May 4, 2013 at 3:48 PM

    It’s tough, we hardly look like we’re going to score and then whenever there’s a long ball towards our defence, we immediately get shaky.

    I hate to say this but West Ham could easily end up winning 1-0 at this rate. We’ve been the better team but we’ve created very little in terms of on-goal chances.

  • 152 Newcastle Brown Alien // May 4, 2013 at 3:48 PM

  • 156 TurkishFan101 // May 4, 2013 at 3:50 PM

    I dont see anything changing. We are so lucky we got players like Ben Arfa because he sparkles the match up. Cisse is still left alone up field, Ben Arfa creating chances for himself cause his world class. That one pass by Cabaye was when he was way deep and got a good pass to Cisse where he was left alone again up front. Can anyone disagree with that? and Jonas is seriously a donkey, his wasting our time. We need to be pressing and pushing for a goal so he fakes a injury the twat. Jonas off, Anita on for me.

  • 157 Black and White with an army lol // May 4, 2013 at 3:50 PM

  • 158 seasons // May 4, 2013 at 3:50 PM

    45 mins in and we’ve the better team. only thing missing is THAT goal. think tiote and simpson have been far better than their performances of late and coloccini has shown how much we’ve missed him in the last 12 games.
    keep the passing and counter attack on the floor play going and we get the 3 points needed

  • 159 JackButler // May 4, 2013 at 3:50 PM

    Tiote is a bloody liability, the amount of free kicks he give’s away will eventually cost us. Someone needs to tell him that he’s there to break up play and lay it off, simple passes to TEAM MATE’S

  • 160 toonbrother // May 4, 2013 at 3:50 PM

    Cabaye needs to step up his passin in the final third, Also gutierez – i just dont get it. Mbiwa has offered more going forward than him

  • 163 JackButler // May 4, 2013 at 3:52 PM

    We desperately need another 45 minuet performance, just hope Pardew doesn’t have us retreating to out 18 yard line to try and defend for the second half!!!

  • 164 santonthenewmaldini // May 4, 2013 at 3:52 PM

    Yeah see if Pardew was able to replace Tiote and Jonas with Anita and Sissoko?What a team I think we could be

    You would be looking at a quality team Tiote keeps giving away silly free kicks Jonas has not really done much we need players who can run and tackle but also pass the ball and make things happen

    Is anyone else slightly concerned at how much more solid we look with Simpson and Colo playing?Jarvis who is West Hams’s best player has not had a touch all game on the left hand side !

    Also Mbiwa looks decent at left back not really getting forward but thats fine thats what we need

    Need to get Arfa and Cabaye on the ball more in dangerous areas just hope we play the same game and dont let West Ham batter us 2nd half

  • 166 Mister Tuff // May 4, 2013 at 3:53 PM

  • 171 Rotonda heights // May 4, 2013 at 3:56 PM

    You finally twigged.

    That’s why he’s had 2 record losing streaks at 2 different clubs.

    It’s obvious in the last 2 previous matches that the players were extremely fed up and p..d off and if all the reports are to be believed Cabaye and others snapped and said as much to Pardew as Ba and Colo had done previously.

    If we can count this as a decent game from him it shows how sh1t hes been this season if our expectations have lowered this much

    He’s supposed to break up there play thats his job, giving away free kick after free kick isnt breaking up play though is it, its inviting continued pressure on us

We pay over £6m for Anita but yet because his english talent Pardew still has high hopes in him just like at westham when he didnt play Tevez or Maschareno. Can someone tell me why we have to suffer watching this crap, had anough. First sub off our best player that can create something from nothing like Ben Arfa then bring on Shola Donkeyobi. I am fed up of this, seriously cant take anymore.

    I want to tell you guys something, Debuchy only came so Cabaye can stay for another season or so or we would of never spent money on fullback that’s aged over 27. All the french players came in due to Graham Carrs and his great ability of scouting great gems. Pardew did not have any clue who was coming in but was 100% sure that he wanted to bring Carrol, Tompkins, Thomas Ince and other youth players that are british. He wanted a tactical philliopshy of hoofing and more direct but he got the opposite. While we all want good football so we brang in players with technical ability, unfortunately Pardew does not know what to do with players like Mbiwa, ben Arfa, Marvo, Anita, Cisse, Santon, and is destroying them slowly by playing them out of position. His Plan B has always been bring on Shola Ameobi or Dan Gosling and even both. Anyone care to argue with me go ahead but everything which I have said above is true.

    There is lack of communication within the team, they are split in the room as we witnessed today and before continuously. Only place we going is relegation or just avoiding it.

    I know he’s pretty rubbish most of the time, but where’s Obertan, his pace off the bench for 20mins would help us. As Campbell will never get to come on with Shola the favourite sat there.

    Can Fergs return now and be involved??

  • 415 nufcursed // May 4, 2013 at 5:00 PM

    i just do not understand why we’re not trying to win games??what the hell is pardew thinking?? that we can stay up by drawing all remaining games??
    he must go asap if we dont beat qpr we are relegated.
    i’ve said it a long time ago that pardew would never take this club forward.
    but i would’ve never thought he would bring us down so quickly

  • 416 Ketsbaia9 // May 4, 2013 at 5:00 PM

    Not strenghthening the strikeforce in January is going to send us down. Wigan will get 6 points, Norwich will get 3, Villa may get a point against Chelsea. Sunderland will win the next 2 games, so we’ll have to beat QPR and draw against Arsenal to stay up.

  • 417 King07 // May 4, 2013 at 5:00 PM

    we are no attack form , just pass to the near teammate, then long shot , horrible cross than

    He thinking how to created another Illusion for fans.

  • 420 toonbrother // May 4, 2013 at 5:00 PM

    Pardew is our biggest liability!!!! I still believe we are better poised for survival than wigan or sunderland. The Clean sheet today was very encouraging

  • 421 DS_NUFC // May 4, 2013 at 5:00 PM

    see that pardew, he is the worst manager in this league,what does he see in ameobi, he ships cisse out the wing and brings on gosling to keep it at 0-0, the man has to go at the end of the season, nail biting times now lads

  • 422 Munster Mag // May 4, 2013 at 5:01 PM

    sadly it worked out more or less as i predicted. Good point for us but Wigan can beat anyone and have been very unlucky recently. They will beat swansea easily and we’ll go down I think. We simply have to attack QPR and get 3 points. Villa will be safe by the time they play Wigan too. Disastrous results for us today. Who have norwich and makems got left to play??

  • 423 santonthenewmaldini // May 4, 2013 at 5:01 PM

    Wigan will stay up as they will beat Swansea and Villa

    Its between us Sunderland and Norwich to go down cant see either of them winning another game

    I can see us beating QPR but we really have to go for it a draw is no good

  • 424 Ketsbaia9 // May 4, 2013 at 5:01 PM

    If Agbonlahor didn’t scored that late goal Villa would’ve dropped. I can’t see us beating QPR. If anything, they’ll beat us.

  • 425 Cisse's Big Toe // May 4, 2013 at 5:01 PM

    whys everyone so negative, a point is a point. even if wigan pull off a recovery, sunderland, norwich are in as much trouble as us, win against qpr we stay up

  • 426 Newcastle for alltid // May 4, 2013 at 5:02 PM

    I think Sunderland will beat Stoke, as it would just be typical. The fact that both Villa and Wigan win today just makes me sick. The fact that it was filthy McManaman who did it just makes me wanna puke. This season is so utter, utter crap.

    On top of that we played poor football today. No tempo. We did have some spells of possession, but those were just passing sideways offering no threat.
    We do have Sunderland below us atm, but that’ll change monday night. Wigan will get lucky in the last few games, beating Swansea in mid-week, staying up – either beating us on goal difference or points.

  • 427 stuart no9 // May 4, 2013 at 5:02 PM

    2 chances all game- didnt look like scoring – didnt look like we were fighting for survrval. didnt look like we wanted it . wigan 3-2 winners look favoutite to stay up F//K.

  • 428 davis_toons // May 4, 2013 at 5:02 PM

    Pardew support goal line technology.

  • 429 ilovetoon8788 // May 4, 2013 at 5:02 PM

    We are in deep deep trouble. We don’t seem like able to score unless it’s moment of brilliance.

  • 430 Sazzer // May 4, 2013 at 5:03 PM

  • 432 BandB // May 4, 2013 at 5:03 PM

    Tsunki,

    How’s your predictor looking? Mine’s been right so far. Even so far as Norwich slipping into trouble late on. It had us surviving by one point. But it assumed, back then, we’d beat Sunderland.
    Even at the start of the season, I’d have taken a point at West Ham. Not a bad result and, by recent standards, not a humiliating performance. But we need to win a game. During the week, I wrote a touchline spoof of Pardew and Carver making subs. It involved Ben Arfa coming off and Gosling coming on “cos he carries a fret.”
    It was meant to be a ridiculous pastiche. Today, it happened.

  • 433 kevymartins // May 4, 2013 at 5:03 PM

  • 434 valle // May 4, 2013 at 5:04 PM

  • 435 Williamsonsuks // May 4, 2013 at 5:04 PM

    We are going down for sure. Results went against us today. Thanks Pardew you Fkn clown!!!!

  • 436 Eddie // May 4, 2013 at 5:04 PM

    At least it was a point. The Parsnip will talk about “diligence” and injuries; he will praise Colo and Cabs.
    Strange feeling what with the other results – there’s certainly some praise due to the lads but the old bum is squeaking more than ever!

  • 437 toonbrother // May 4, 2013 at 5:04 PM

    @420 i dont think we could have thrown caution to the wind the way wigan probably did. They have nothing to lose at the moment we do. Pardew goofed taking off Ben arfa who seemed like he still had lots of energy in the tank. That just invited them to come at us without fear of counter. Less said about gosling the better

  • 438 Guj NUFC // May 4, 2013 at 5:04 PM

    Wigan and Villa showing desire to stay up, knowing they are in trouble and we settle for a point.

  • 439 colwell // May 4, 2013 at 5:05 PM

    We are NOT playing like our relegation rivals are, We have no fight. Nothing about our play says we want to stay up!

  • 445 jimiley // May 4, 2013 at 5:05 PM

    Even if we beat QPR we could still go down. Wigan will not go down. They will beat Swansea and Villa and end on 41 points with a better goal difference. We need to look to scum or Norwich getting less than 41 points. We look a decent bet to go down. It would be remarkable to go from 5th to relegated in 1 year. Quite an achievement,even for the Toon. Toon can do anything except win something.

  • 448 Laurent Robert 32 // May 4, 2013 at 5:05 PM

    Pardew thinks he’s done a great job by trying to hold onto a point, whilst Wigan go for it and get the three. The man is a poison to the club. Second half same as usual, cautious, negative and not trying for the three points.

    Disgraceful Cisse’s goal wasn’t given and even worse Macmanaman scored winner when he should be banned and we should have got points from them as well because of it.

  • 449 Santon03 // May 4, 2013 at 5:06 PM

  • 451 Ketsbaia9 // May 4, 2013 at 5:06 PM

    Fulham and Stoke aren’t safe yet. We must either draw both games or win 1 of them. Glad Wigan won, but Villa winning has killed me. Was hoping for us to sign Benteke in the summer. We must beat QPR to relieve the pressure.

  • 473 DxK // May 4, 2013 at 5:12 PM

    It’s tricky to figure out if we’ll be able to scrape through this season. Norwich will surely beat WBA who aren’t really up for it. Then there’s this QPR match for us and Arsenal at home. I would have taken a point at the start today, but looking at other results it might be a big chance missed.

  • 474 Sazzer // May 4, 2013 at 5:12 PM

    Norwich has tougher schedule than us on paper, but if WBA and City want us relegated then we are more or less screwed. Unless Sunderland goes empty handed.

    So to sum up;

    3-0 win vs QPR
    4-2 win vs Arsenal

    = Comfortable mid-table.

    Let’s be positive, at least Norwich look fapping terrible and Sunderland’s front line has been dismantled.

  • 480 Toonfan93 // May 4, 2013 at 5:14 PM

    If we dont show more desire next week against an already relegated qpr it will just show how negative and incompetent person pardew is. Our counter attacking was like a team protecting a 1-0 lead in the last minute of a game. Although pardew is that clueless he probably thought the goal was given in the first half.

  • 481 Laurent Robert 32 // May 4, 2013 at 5:14 PM

    4 games we’ve scored 1 goal. It really is pathetic. Cisse on the wing isn’t going to get you goals. Neither is defending in the second half of games. What an absolute idiot.

  • 482 BandB // May 4, 2013 at 5:15 PM

    Stoke are the other team whose position is misleading. They are still in the mix.

  • 484 Toonfan93 // May 4, 2013 at 5:17 PM

    Serious work needed in the summer by the board if we want to avoid a similar situation next season.

  • 485 DxK // May 4, 2013 at 5:17 PM

    It’s tricky Papiss, because WBA have had such a good season and they’re just drifting along in 8th now, yet QPR are playing for moves away or new contracts, so they have some incentive..

    Also this Newcastle team just seems so negative. Granted, Colo’s return seems timely and if we can get Sylvain, Sissoko and Hatem fully match fit for QPR then we have a chance there, it just needs Pardew to be positive.

    It’s make or break for the club in my opinion, relegation and it could be a real struggle to come back.

  • 486 DxK // May 4, 2013 at 5:20 PM

    Robbie Fowler reckons Toon are heading south. He can’t see our boys winning another game.

    How did it come to this huh? Surely that group of players with their talent can get one win and hit that 41 points which would surely be enough.

  • 487 Ketsbaia9 // May 4, 2013 at 5:26 PM

    Yeah, Stoke could lose the next 3 games. If we beat QPR, they could go down, but QPR will try their best to beat us. We’ve got nothing up front and that’s the major problem. Cabaye is useless. Doesn’t get forward enough. We need Marveaux back asap.
