Pardew Identifies Everton’s Danger Man For Monday Night

Leighton Baines scored a fantastic goal against us last season in our first games of this year,  in Everton’s 2-1 win at St. James’ Park,  and that followed two Newcastle losses at Old Trafford and the Emirates, when we lost 4-3 and 7-3 respectively, and it was three league defeats on the trot and we conceded 13 goals at the turn of the year. 🙁

Leighton Baines – after scoring at West Ham

Baines will be a threat on Monday night at Goodison Park,  and it hasn’t helped that he scored two fantastic goals in Everton’s last game at West Ham, when Everton won 3-2 with two goals in the last seven minutes of that game.

Alan Pardew is well aware of the danger Baines gives to a Newcastle side,  who are still weak defending set plays.

This is what the Newcastle manager said today:

“We’ve got this great idea. We’re going to have a wall and then a piggy back wall on top of that.” “I’m sure Everton will be under the same orders as my players, because in Yohan Cabaye we have a free-kick specialist just as good as Leighton Baines,”

But there’s a difference in that Yohan has not scored yet this season, but we suppose Monday night would be a very good time to start.

And Everton also have Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku on loan for the season,  and he scored Everton’s other goal at Upton Park, so the Newcastle defense will need to be a lot better than we  were against Hull City,  if we are going to get something out of this game.

Let us know how you think the game will go on Monday night.

    Is that the extent of Pardews tactical nous, a double wall and worse still he’s told the opposition about it.

    and that’s exactly why we shouldn’t play tiote today because he can give away a foul in a room on his own and owt given from 18 yards to 35 yards could prove our downfall with Baines in their team.

    You are dead wrong when you say we have competed at the very top for nigh on 120 years.

    I have supported the Toon for nearly half that time and there have been plenty of dire seasons in the 2nd division, dire signings, early cup knockouts and twice to non league teams and bar a very brief period never a serious challenge for the Prem title.

    And, in all that time, just one trophy – the Fairs Cup in 69.

    This what galls me when fans say we are a club in crisis. We were a club in crisis when we owned by the McKeags, in the 2nd division, playimg to 13,000 crowds.

    The only thing that Newcastle United have any history in or of is the fanatical support ie., 50,000 would turn up to see eleven black and white shirts drying on the line.

    And even that history is stretching the truth over the years.
