Vurnon Anita sat out last night’s game at Morecambe, but is likely to start on Saturday against Fulham, and let’s hope we get another solid game from the Dutchman, like he produced last Saturday against West Ham, when he was the best player on the field for Newcastle.
Vurnon Anita – played very well last Saturday
Vurnin had a tough time of it last season, even though he still made 37 appearances for the first team, but now that he’s getting used to the English way of playing football, we are hoping he has an outstanding season coming up.
And that will be even more important if Yohan Cabaye decides to leave Newcastle in this next few days.
Certainly the manager seems pleased with the 24 year-old Dutchman:
“Anita is getting back to his Ajax game.” “We have worked on Vurn to get him to cope with the Premier League.” “It is a bit more hurly-burly compared to Holland, as you would imagine.”
“His passing has been sound, and he is making the right decisions. I have been very pleased with him.” “He took the ball from left to right and then right to left.” “However, it is just about getting more into that final third.”
“Vurnon and Sylvain had better games for the club against West Ham.” “Sylvain tired towards the end but he did well.”
We suppose if Yohan Cabaye agrees to grace us with his presence on Saturday, then Vurnon could be on the bench, but maybe Yohan will start on the bench – that’s if he agrees to play of course.
And there was even more good news yesterday (we need as much as we xan get these days), and our U18 side smashed Sunderland 3-0 – an excellent result fron the youngsters.
Now what we need is for Newcastle to put up a good performance against Fulham on Saturday afternoon, and get all 3 points and we’ll be in decent shape.
