Newcastle Unchanged Against Hull City


nufc emblemhull_city_badge

As expected Alan Pardew has named an unchanged side from the team that won 2-1 at Villa Park last week, and with Steven Taylor being injured, Mike Williamson comes in as a substitute.

Newcastle will again play in a 4-3-3 formation and they will attack Hull City from the first whistle, in an attempt to get our third league win in a row, which could even take us into the top six in the Premier League by tonight.

The bench is again strong with only Jonas Gutierrez, Steven Taylor and Shola Ameobi out with injury, and in the second half we would expect to see Cheick Tiote and Yoan Gouffran and Yoan Gouffran to get run outs – depending on how the game is going.

But this is a game we can win, and it will be a bit of a disappointment if we cannot get all 3 points this afternoon, against the newly promoted side.

Howay The Lads!!

Newcastle United (4-3-3): Tim Krul; Mathieu Debuchy, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Davide Santon; Vurnon Anita, Moussa Sissoko, Yohan Cabaye; Hatem Ben Arfa, Papiss Cisse, Loic Remy

    Makes sense to me. Hope Anita can keep up that performance level. When he came off for Tiote we looked like a different team – and not for the better.

    Good. I feared Pardew would include Tiote somehow but he seems to be learning. Should be one of our easier games this season but I doubt very much it’ll work out like that.
    Still, a Toon win today.

    I dont get this “we could be in the top 6 by tonight”.
    If we win, we will be on 10 points – 2nd to ‘Pool on goal difference
    (unless we win 6-0!)

    Anita is the key.

    Against Villa in the 2nd half he played a pass over the top that was mouth-watering. Cabaye is yet to do any magic passes like that for us.

    You mean this season? Where he has only played 1 full game and 15 minutes of another? Being a little harsh on Cabaye aren’t you?

    It will be a lot closer than people think but I would take any win for us as long as we play with the class of the first half in particular from ;ast week.

    Great to see the same XI as last week, feel very encouraged by Pardews talk of this 433 being his favoured formation when everyones fit.
    I know as a Newcastle fan its so easy to get carried away but if we are going to get a big win, and its been a while, today is the day!
    4-1 with Remy, Cisse and two for our hero HBA.

    The starting 11 pretty much picks itself but I’m glad that Pardew hasn’t simply thrown Tiote back in there as Anita has more than earned the right to keep his place and is forming a very good partnership with Sissoko.

    Now if Cisse and Cabaye can find a vein of form all will be good on the pitch

    true mate, out of our current lineup i think Goofy should be on instead of Cisse, but today should be the day Cisse scores goals but if not Goofy must take his place until Cisse finds his form

    Cisse’s confidence is shot to piece’s, dropping him could do more harm than good. He needs to be playing to find that form that he showed when he first came here as that was no fluke

    Cisse has been shocking people. Everyone comments on how he is a “confidence player” perhaps he is simply a “lazy b*****d who has had no competition for places and is playing shi*e due to complacency” type player.

    He needs dropped unless he begins to score or begins to look lively in this formation.

    Steve Bruce has always had a soft spot for his fellow goerdies, i mean look what happened when he was at Scumberland hahahaha

    but saying that it was Scumberland maybe it’s different with Hull lol

    the only problem with Cisse is that he’s an poacher whilst Gouffran is an advance forward which works perfect for this type of formation

    I must say Alan’s interview on the managers jobs in the premier league was a good read, very honest words. I don’t get why every time he’s got an interview in the press and gets published on here people only comment and moan on what he’s said, why? 90% of the time he’s spot on, got to remember the press throw these questions at him everyday. Massive unnecessary overreaction on what he says by the majority of you lot..

    Visiting my Wife’s family now in Brazil. Here the game is not live, only in 4 hours on Fox Sports. For now they show Liverpool.

    How I hate the fact that they sing with a song played in the background and this is called “supporting” or being a “fan”. Singing with a song is X-Factor. Not football cheering.

    It sounds nice, but it is totally fake.

    Anyway. NO ONE TELL ME THE SCORE OF OUR GAME 🙂

    Just kidding. I am not going online until I’ll watch the game today (last week had to wait until Sunday to watch. Didn’t come on the blog or saw the news).
