Tim Krul Starts – Cabaye And Remy On Bench


nufc emblemfulham-fc

Some good news for Newcastle this afternoon, as Tim Krul is fit enough to start the game, and Yohan Cabaye and Loic Remy are both on the bench for Newcastle.

And with Yohan being on the bench, that says to us there cannot be much truth in the Times report today that a £14M deal is close to being agreed between Newcastle and Arsenal for Cabaye – no way – so that’s potentially good news for Newcastle.

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 wings, with the central midfield being run by Moussa Sissoko and Vurnon Anita, who both had good games last week against West Ham.

In fact it’s the same team that started last week against West Ham, and Sammy Ameobi is a little unlucky not to shade Sylvain Marveaux for a starting place on the left wing this afternoon.

Paul Dummett and Dan Gosling both make the bench after good games at Morecambe,  but there’s no place for Gael Bigirimana or Curtis Good, with Steven Taylor still suspended and Cheick Tiote  out injured.

Darren Bent starts up front for Fulham – so let’s hope he doesn’t manage to get a goal against us today.

We need a win today and that will send the Geordie spirits flying.

Howay The Lads!!

Teams:

Newcastle United (4-4-2): Tim Krul; Mathieu Debuchy, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Davide Santon; Hatem Ben Arfa, Moussa Sissoko, Vurnon Anita, Sylvain Marveaux; Shola Ameobi, Papiss Cisse
Substitutes: Rob Elliot, Paul Dummett, Dan Gosling, Yohan Cabaye, Sammy Ameobi, Yoan Gouffran, Loic Remy

Fulham (4-4-2): David Stockdale; Sascha Riether, Brede Hangeland (c), Aaron Hughes, John Arne Riise; Alex Kacaniklic, Steven Sidwell, Scott Parker, Bryan Ruiz; Dimitar Berbatov, Darren Bent
Substitutes: Neil Etheridge, Matthew Briggs, Derek Boateng, Giorgios Karagounis, Damien Duff, Adel Taarabt, Hugo Rodallega

Referee: Chris Foy (Lancashire)

    I don’t dislike Debuchy at all and he is a good player, he has proved that but at NUFC he has been pretty poor and still need’s time to adjust to our game but i feel Dummett at LB and Santon at RB would be a better option. Just my tuppence worth lol.

    Good to have Marv as well as Anita, but can’t understand the logic of this line up.

    Either the midfield or the attack line is wrong, but there’s something inapropriate.

    Urgh, did pardew not watch our “attacking” display last week with cisse and strolla up front in a 442???????

    aaaaaaaaaaaaannnddddddddd HOOF HOOF HOOF aaaaaaaaaannnnnnnddddddd Shola give foul away, foul away, foul away

    Marveaux LW again, how can everyone but Pardew see he is a AM or nothing??

    Hangeland will walk this game with Strolla jumping around him and giving away free kick after free kick.

    Ah well, here comes the hope again, completely baseless but same as ever. 3-1 toon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Won’t be able to watch the match : (

    Feels like a solid line up to start. Might be a bit vulnerable in the midfield. They Sissoko really needs to take charge there.

    Wonder if we’ll see a 4-3-3 in the second half ?

    Pardew played Shola to bully west ham defenders who are good in the air.

    And now he’s playing Shola to ‘bully’ Hangeland.

    Shola was useless against West Ham.

    When will Pardew ever learn.

    Shola scored midweek, he looks like our only forward capable of scoring so I understand why he’s playing, it just frustrates me that our squad is so bad that Shola is the only forward looking capable of scoring.

    Marv isn’t a winger, so I expect another fairly lazy display on the wing from him, he needs to run his socks off to earn this run in the team, and I’m delighted to see Anita starting.

    Following on from last topic :

    Well people can blame Ashley etc for not supposedly backing his manager well lets put it into perspective :

    Over the last 2 years this blog has went crazy saying we should sign this player and that player a lot of those players were Anita, Debuchy, Mbiwa and Sissoko we signed them all

    We have also got Remy who has been a long term target thats 5 quality players along with Arfa, Cisse, Cabaye, Colo, Santon, Krul , Marveux and other squad fillers

    That is still miles better than what teams around us have and we still get outplayed and outfought in every game

    Why should Ashley give Pardew anymore money if he cant get the best out of what he gets ? Time for Pardew to go it really is

    Only have to look at an example of Southampton a lot of those players were signed or introduced to the team by Pardew but for some reason he never got the best out of them now players like Lallana etc look brilliant could it possibly be the same for us ? Pardew sets the ground work and then we get a better manager in to take us up a level?

    Pardew will want to keep it tight the first half. Second half i’m hoping he goes 4-3-3 and we unleash the mighty power of RA. More than lightly scrape a 1-0 or 1-1 scoreline though.

    @santon

    I really agree with your last two posts… New manager is a necessity and I would still want a new striker to replace shola and a winger. I think Ashley wants rid of Pardew but he wont quit he showed that last year.

    Shola needs a few pinged in from wide. Everything in the air comes at him from deep, which is pants, but hardly his fault.

    Pardew Logic – Cabaye on the bench, Shola starts and the same dire 442 formation from last week.

    Putting Cabaye on the bench is a shocking decision, either start him or leave him out. Now more scrutiny will be placed on him so now when when we’re playing useless like last week and he comes on at 70 minutes what will the St James’ reaction be? Just adds possible negativity.
    Also why cant we play 433, just makes me so angry, 442 is a decaying formation and are players are so suited to 433.
    Pardew.

    @Rake

    Yeah it seems brinksmanship on either side and the real losers are going to be us the fans as usual with Newcastle Owners and managers never suffer they always get a pay off

    Also its just so soul destroying watching Soccer Saturday and watch the panel praise other teams and dissect our problems we cant create and none of our defenders can head a ball but with the players we have on paper we should be quality going forward no?

    Suddenly not signing Douglas on a free transfer seems like a big error even though he is slower than Willaimson/Taylor

    i dont want to start on a negative but hull are playing way better than we did and we were told we could never complete with these teams. With that do we have any chance this season to do anything

    There is as much link up play between Cisse and Ameobi as there is Matter in a vacuum.
