Cisse, Coloccini, Gosling, Ben Arfa And Anita Start At St. Mirren


st mirrennufc-crest

As expected Fabricio Coloccini, Ben Arfa, Vurnon Anita and the great Papiss Cisse all start at St. Mirren, but there’s a bit of a surprise with Dan Gosling getting a starting berth.

Dan almost joined Crystal Palace last week, after a fee had been agreed, but it seemed that Palace messed him around a little for a couple of days, after he had completed his medical eight days ago, and so he pulled out of the deal last Wednesday and returned to Newcastle.

And so much for the media reports that Gosling would be shunned when he returned to Newcastle – he gets a start tonight – and it’s a good opportunity for the 23 year-old England U21 International to show what he can do for the side.

And as expected Paul Dummett gets another start at left back against the side he was on loan to last season, and Paul did really well north of the border, and that has given him a big chance at Newcastle in this pre-season, and he’s played extremely well so far and seems to be taking that chance – good for him.

And Conor Newton was also at St. Mirren, and got rave reviews earlier this year, and good man-management by Alan Pardew means that Connor is on the bench tonight, and he’s almost certain to get on in the second half, and he should get a great welcome from the St. Mirren fans.

Vurnon Anita and Cheick Tiote will be in central midfield, and Papiss Cisse will be the lone striker up front in a modified 4-5-1 formation.

18 year-old local Shields lads Remie Streete (South Shields) and Adam Campbell (North Shields) also make the bench tonight, and 21 year-old Sammy Ameobi gets another start for Newcastle.

It should be a good game tonight, against a club who also wear the black and white stripes, and the Scottish Premier League club are forming a great relationship with Newcastle United.

Teams:

St Mirren – tba

Newcastle United (4-2-3-1): Rob Elliot; Mathieu Debuchy, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Paul Dummett; Vurnon Anita, Cheick Tiote; Hatem Ben Arfa, Dan Gosling, Sammy Ameobi; Papiss Cisse
Substitutes: Jak Alnwick, Davide Santon, Remie Streete, Mike Williamson, Michael Richardson, Conor Newton, Haris Vuckic, Yoan Gouffran, Adam Campbell

Referee: John Beaton

    Re post from the last thread

    Bonsoir messieurs.

    Lads, tonight is a great evening for i just got one of the greatest idea in mankind’s History.

    Anyway a great idea for NUFC for i just found how to win titles again.

    YES, TITLES!

    For i first found the origin of all:

    THE MONCURINO’s CURSE!

    As excellents NUFC fans you are, i guess you know everything about Bobby Moncur who scored three goals during the final of the 1969?s inter city fair cup, our last title.

    The only three goals Moncur scored during his Newcastle’s career, wich mean 296 games.

    A fact who should have make us aware of something going one…

    And to speak of our last Champion’s title, it was in 1927 so 84 years ago.

    But do you know the story of the Boston red sox? The were the best base-ball club at the begining of the 20th century, but they won nothing from 1918 to 2004, so it mean 86 years…

    This long period was called by a sinister name, the Bambino’s curse!

    Bambino was the nickname of babe ruth, the greatest base ball player of all time. He won three titles with the red sox, but finally, in 1920, he went to the New York Yankees.

    The sworn enemis of the Red sox. And so begun the Bambino’s curse…

    Cause Ruth, who was the leader of the team during the last title, went to the ark rival of the sox.

    And do you know where went Moncur when he left NUFC in 1974?

    Yes, absolutly, he signed for they who must not be named, the worst ever football club in history, in fact even the worst human group who ever existed if we speak of the city as a whole!

    And since then, ours days were made of total delusion…

    BUT THERE’S HOPE AGAIN ON THE SIDES OF THE TYNE LADS!

    For as you noticed it, the Red sox finaly won again. How did they do that will you ask?

    Well, everything turned during the American league championship series ( the semi final of the Major League Baseball if you prefer) 2004.

    The Red sox were trailled 3 games to none by the… New york Yankees!

    And finally, they won the series 4 games to 3, becoming the first team in history to overcome a 0-3 disadvantage. They also prevailled in the world series who followed, their first title after 86 years.

    SO NOW, TIME TO EXPLAIN MY GREAT PLAN:

    1. We got to qualify for the semi finals of the FA CUP.

    2. We got to manage for they who must not be named qualify too. The hardest part of the job for sure… It would require sacrifice, but every cause got martyrs, so it would be fine if 10 000 of us could accept to wear their shirt and to sing for support them in their stadium, for as everyone know, it lack greatly of atmosphere.
    Additionnaly, we will have to persuade the FA to let Beny, Colo and Cab play for them in the Cup prior to the semi final if we want them to have a chance.
    Well, to pay their opponents will be needed too…

    3. We must arrange the draft to be sure we will play against them in semi final, i will tak no chance about it.

    4. We must let them score the three first goals. In this, i now reckon the true genius Pard is, for it seem he already got the idea last season.
    Unfortunatly it, didn’t work for the plan also require to finally beat them 4 goals to 3…
    Well, it was probably just a test to be sure the players would accept in time to let they who must not be named scored 3 goals in a row against us. As is said, every cause need martyrs…

    5. And so, finally, by scoring these 4 goals and thereby win the game, we will be rid of the Moncurino’s curse.

    So we will win plenty of titles again!

    Now tell me, what do you think of this plan? Brilliant isn’t it?

    Gosling will be like a new signing.

    Re Post.

    All we really must wish for is a new owner who is actually interested in us as a team/club and actually care less about competing and not just want to stay in the league as it makes more money and is worth more to sell.
    MA is as interested in us as he is with all of his zero hour employees.

    Beware Rangers fans.

    They would rather try offload a player than play a match to actually win and get the real team ready for the new season. It’s a right joke like.

    Jimiley said

    “Niafron,
    A great idea. I remember Bob Moncur well. Top player. But to reverse the curse we need a center half (Bob was a central defender) to score 3 goals. Thats where your plan falls down. We aint got a defender that can score a goal in a whole season, never mind three in one game. Sorry mate, it will not work.”

    Maybe could we play Cissé center Back? Or to ask Philippe Albert to come Back from his retreat?

    It looks like there is no one in for gosling, so what is the problem with giving him a game in a pre season friendly? It would be ridiculous to not have him play and he stays, then we get a couple of injuries in midfields and he’s not fit.

    I’m more worried about the game time sammy is getting, we may as well give the kid a 15 year contract now so we Don’t get our hopes up he is leaving, when it looks like his contract might be running out.

    Can’t understand what’s wrong with Gosling playing, if he plays well he’s in the shop window or we decide to keep him, either way he’ll need to be fit; it is preseason and as of now he’s our player and we need him match fit.

    Mr Parsnip reckons our current squad is “good enough.” Good enuf for what exactly? Relegation? This is the same good enough squad which came within a whisker of relegation. He treats us all like mugs and we are mugs for putting up with this rubbish owner and management. We deserve all we get.

    Pardew said that last year cisse was too isolated, and he wants him to form a partnership with someone this season, then plays a 4-5-1 with cisse up top alone? The blokes clueless, absolutely clueless. I’ll back him as long as he’s in charge, but he doesn’t half test my patience sometimes.
