This Player’s Career Is Over At Newcastle

There’s a report in the Chronicle today that Sylvain Marveaux has been told to train with the Newcastle United U18 team, and if that’s true then he’s probably played his last game for Newcastle.

Sylvain Marveaux West+Ham

Sylvain Marveaux – unlikely to feature for Newcastle in run-in

Sylvain was one of the players Alan Pardew laid into after the terrible 4-0 defeat by Tottenham last week, for not putting in sufficient effort, and Ben Arfa was another substitute who was heavily criticized by the manager in the dressing room, following the fifth home defeat in a row in all competitions.

Before this happened last week, Sylvain Marveaux was already disillusioned with life on Tyneside, and he had become a bit player for the side, and it was already very likely he would leave in the summer.

But his demotion to train with the Juniors could mean he did not take the criticism from Alan Pardew too well, and may have even become a negative influence in the squad.

Otherwise why not keep him training with the first team squad?

After the pathetic display against Tottenham, which was our third defeat in a row and conceded 10 goals in the process, Alan Pardew had singled out players who were not performing up to scratch for the side.

And they included Marveaux, Ben Arfa and probably some others like Tim Krul, Davide Santon and Steven Taylor.

What’s needed now is a positive response from the players in Sunday’s game against Villa, and we’ll have Loic Remy back from suspension and Cheick Tiote back from injury.

We are also hoping Fab Coloccini is back from the knee injury, which has kept him out of the side for seven weeks.

The team on Sunday should be the best we can put on the field for the remainder of this season – with all our players now available – hopefully.

Newcastle need a win to left the spirits of the supporters.

    Yeah but isn’t a real news site, it is his propaganda machine which no one takes seriously anyway 


    i am for a while. Ed replied to my e-mail, and it seems i am not in any trouble at all. He sees all the back biting on here, but i think he just accepts tensions are high due to how sh1t nufc are as a club at the moment.

    Not surprised. His cards had been marked a long time ago. He was given a lifeline in the last game and he showed an almost total lack of effort and commitment. He is surplus to requirements.

    The same thing can be said about Santon who has looked a shadow of his former self. Ben Arfa needs to buck up his ideas as he too will be given the elbow.

    I disagree about Krul. When keepers make mistakes it nearly always hurts the team unlike outfield players. He had one bad game and that is it.

    I hope the players stick together and back marv up.

    if it is true that marv is training with the kids for his performance v spurs , abbsalutly shocking, I think pardew should start on the players that played 90 minutes of football first,
    he had hardly played any football, and yet he got 29 mins to save the team , shocking

    you fans agreeing with this should hang your heads, you can see he is being hung out to dry,

    marv is not to blame for us not wining 5 in a row at st james’ park

    I enjoy your posts and banter but I don’t condone the e mailing of Ed to complain, we’re all grown men here, with a few exceptions, I found myself banned one night at a time when I was at a fans meeting and wanted to share what was happening that night, pawl and low full meg had complained about my anti Ashley drivel and had me banned.

    I e-mailed ed because somone had complained about me and it appeard some of my comments had been removed as a result. I wanted to find out what the hell was going on. Also, there is bullying that goes on here, and grown men/women or not, it is a serious thing, and i happen to feel strongly about it.

    The way you twist and distort to suit your argument is becoming ridiculous

    Marvarux has never, at any stage of his career, at this club or Rennes or here has been any more than a occasionally influential bench warmer
    Well the hell this myth that he’s some kind of player has come from is truly baffling

    NOBODY has claimed he is to blame for losing 5 in a row, that is using an extreme which is beyond stupid
    But if you think thus lad has or had ever had a crack at a glittering career on Tyneside based on his sketchy uninterested cameos ya need to get down to spec savers pretty sharp like

    Average player, shocking attitude on the pitch, well rid

    Yet last year Jonas and Tiote are poor all year yet Pardew keeps them in the team.

    Marveaux played match winning, relegation saving passes to Cisse and he’s still benched.

    My motivation would be shot to pieces as well. No surprise that he’s pissed off with Pardew and totally de-motivated.

    The rot set in way before this happened. Don’t be fooled that Sylvain just doesn’t feel like playing. The lad has been treated awfully and is a Pardew scapegoat, like Ben Arfa.

    Funny how they are both flair players, and Pardew is clueless going forward.

    Not really bothered if we lose Marveaux, seems uninterested when he’s played, never really put a shift in any match. Though his assist will be missed when he has come on.

    On the other hand I will be extremely upset if we let HBA leave.

    He is one of the most technically gifted players in the whole league and in europe and we still can’t find a place for him because Pardew wants him to defend!?

    I am sorry but if you want players that can defend buy bloody defensive players!!

    HBA is an attacker and always will be. He is a natural dribbler that oozes class. He his the only remaining true world class player we have.

    His attitude has improved considerably since being here as the poor lad does try to please Pardew by busting a nut to run back and regain possession when he loses the ball.

    I will be gutted if he leaves as he is the best player I have seen at the club since Shearer / Ginola etc.

    Pardew you cant demote all the team to the under 18 just because the players don’t know how the fuck you want them to play. Do us all a favor and pay Ashley his gambling debt back. then f of you cockney wanker.
