Cabaye Missing Again – Santon, Anita, Marveaux And Shola Start


nufc emblemwest-ham-united-crest

Bad news again today that Yohan Cabaye is not included in the squad for today’s vital home game against West Ham – are we still paying this player?

But Alan Pardew makes four changes to the side that was torn apart at the Etihad Stadium on Monday night, and Davide Santon, Vurnon Anita, Sylvain Marveaux and Shola Ameobi all start this game.

Newcastle will play in an attacking 4-4-2 formation with Shola Ameobi and Papiss Cisse up front, and Ben Arfa and Sylvain Marveaux on the flanks, and Vurnon Anita has come in for the injured Cheick Tiote who has a groin strain, and he will partner Sissoko in central midfield.

For West Ham Kevin Nolan – the former Newcastle United captain – is the Hammer’s skipper and probably also their danger man, and former Newcastle striker target Modibo Maiga starts for West Ham up front.

Gael Bigirimana makes the bench today, as does Haris Vuckic.

We are not happy that Yohan Cabaye has again let the side down before a ball has been kicked – and we’ll leave it at the for the moment.

Newcastle need to win this game today – and out fans at the game need to support the players big time, and hopefully to victory.

Howay The Lads!!

    Tiote has to be one of most injury prone players. Through suspensions and injuries does he ever player more than 5 games in a row?

    Finally marveaux starts! He is so underrated and should be starting every game has immense quality and brings some excitement to the game as well as benny

    Marveaux and Ben arfa don’t work as wingers in a 4-4-2. Don’t track back. Guarantee we see cisse on the wing with Ben arfa on the other. Poor team, poor bench

    I’m actually pleased with that starting line up.

    I’d like to see Anita and Sissoko holding and allowing Marveaux freedom in the hole behind the strikers as he isn’t a proper winger in the strict sense.

    No Jonas, Saylor or Tiote which is good, granted, it is down to injuries and suspensions, but now we need their replacements to prove they deserve to be ahead of them.

    Filled with dread, but given a little spark of hope, glad to be back to basics with a 4-4-2 though, let’s get right on it lads. HWTL!

    Jesus Christ….some people are never happy. “We need to play more attacking football,” “Marv needs to start,” “Pardew will play defensive,” “We need another striker up front with Cisse.” Well…that’s an attacking lineup, Marv is starting, doesn’t look like a defensive starting 11 to me, and there is a striker up front with Cisse…Shola was decent in pre season. Now quit trying to find everything you can possibly complain about and get ready to support the lads.

    This is going to be interesting. Heard people go on and on and on about how amazing Anita is. Let’s find out..

    Would have preferred Santon at RB and Dummett at LB

    We need Shola today, his hold up play will bring the midfield into play more and he’ll offer more support to Cisse

    Is Gouffran injured? Well a lot of fans have got their wish with anita and marveux starting, Tiote and Gutierez out the team (albeit through injury) Lets hope we are as good at picking teams as we think we are. If you swapped shola for a better striker i’d be happy with that team

    For the love of… imo that is a poor set up. I’d much prefer to see Gouffran/Marvs flanking Cisse. HBA as a winger… no protection there for Santon. And no Cabaye… he’s off alright then. I was hoping for a sort of 4-2-1-2-1:

    Krul
    Debs-Colo-Mbiwa-Santon
    Sissoko-Anita
    Marv
    Gouff-HBA
    Cisse

    Ah well, I am but an armchair pundit. Prove me wrong Pardew! HWTL

    I’m actually not too disappointed with ameobi starting, it’ll give some much needed help to cisse.
    Decent first 11 that.

    Good team apart from Ameobi but the bench is completely embarrassing. We need 6 new players.

    stop nitpicking. i would’ve put dummet in too, but at least we get to see anita and marv start, albeit neither in their best positions.

    i second catchy’s query:

    Probably the best team we have with out Cabaye. So glad to see Anita out there, time for him to show why he should be starting every game.

    Credit to Pardew – he needed to shake up the baffling Christmas tree – that produced no gifts – and go 4-4-2 with Shola’s presence in the box; Cisse benefiting from some space behind at last.

    Marveaux and Anita fans get their fix and at least everyone will know what they’re meant to be doing today. No excuses. Even if Shola’s a stop-gap, Cisse needs a strike partner.

    I actually have some confidence in a decent result now.
