Shola Ameobi And Remy Up Front For Newcastle


nufc emblemCardiff City Crest.svg

Alan Pardew has announced his team and its a 4-4-2 formation with Shola Ameobi coming in for Dan Gosling to partner Loic Remy up front, and in the last home game, Shola got his first Premier League goal of the season against Swansea – but we still lost that one 2-1.

That is the only change from the side that lost 3-0 at Arsenal on Monday night, and Newcastle will be trying desperately to break a six game losing streak against bottom of the league side Cardiff City.

And some Newcastle fan organizations are calling for fans to walk out after 69 minutes, and at first yesterday we though that was 60 minutes – so there is at least another 9 minutes to get another couple of goals in there. 😀

And as expected Hatem Ben Arfa does not make the squad again, and it looks like he has indeed played his last game for Newcastle.

With Newcastle in turmoil we just hope we can get a thing called a win today – and if not we will probably go the last eight games of the season without a win, because we will have little chance of 3 points at Anfield next Sunday in the final league game of the season, against a team who are looking to win the Premier League for the very first time.

This is will be the last time the Newcastle home crowd will be seeing Loic Remy in a black and white strip as we will be moving to a bigger club in the summer, when his season long loan spell ends.

17 year-old promising local youngster Adam Armstrong keeps his place on the bench, and Moussa Sissoko and Yoan Gouffran will be on the wings.

We are really hoping for a win today.

Howay The Lads!!

Newcastle (4-4-2): Tim Krul; Mathieu Debuchy, Mike Williamson, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Paul Dummett; Moussa Sissoko, Cheick Tiote, Vurnon Anita, Yoan Gouffran; Shola Ameobi, Loic Remy
Substitutes: Rob Elliot, Massadio Haidara, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Steven Taylor, Dan Gosling, Luuk de Jong, Adam Armstrong

Cardiff – tba

Referee: Martin Atkinson (Yorkshire)

    What is there to lose to plat Armstrong, and again our most creative player is nowhere to be seen, not even the bench.

    Shola starts as well as Williamson, Dummet over Mbiwa, Haidara and Armstrong.

    Gosling starts over Ben Arfa and Marveaux…

    It is his last game here hopefully, give him hell to the nufc fans that are attending the game today!!

    Dodger I bet your right. Pardew will bring Armstrong on early to try and stop everyone walking out.

    Rotunda – couldn’t have put it better my self. Oh Joy lol

    If Cardiff score we are completely reliant on Remy, with no supply line to hold it up while he races up from LB – You know our Attackers have to defend well lol

    If Pardew stays and is given money in the summer the side he will put together will be so dire to watch

    I honestly thought Armstrong would start today why play a player who is leaving ahead of one for the very near future pardew likes to bang on and on about how he is a great believer in giving youth a chance yet we never see it what happened to Campbell and streete

    Thats the thing, we should know what to expect from a cockney bellend.

    I tried to act like I was surprised but I guess I cannot do that with that ego still in charge…

    I hope Cardiff win for the sake of putting mackems down but most importantly getting Pardew sacked.

    Where is the creativity going to come from?

    Pardew dreaming of a draw to stop the rot, while trying to win a game is a thing of the past

    I really can’t believe Pardrew has done this again. Left the quality players on the bench, He will bring them on in the last ten minutes when there is nothing they can do to salvage the game.

    It’s impossible to have any sympathy with Pardew when Santon, Obertan, Shola and Gosling are all playing under him while HBA, Marv and Haidara are always shunned

    Krul or Williamson – straight up the pitch to Ameobi.

    Cardiff play Zaha which signals they are here to play football… we play Ameobi which signals the opposite.

    It will be down to Sissoko if we win this game.

    I honestly think we’ll win today. Then the majority of fans will be happy again and we’ll be back to square one until Pardew goes on yet another losing streak or breaks another few records.

    We could win ten nill today and I’d still want him out.

    I’m surprised he didn’t start Armstrong today, would have been the perfect game for him today. Ah well, at least we have our exciting young prospect Shola playing.

    An to whoever said about Sissoko playing his right positon… He is playing Right mid on that sheet. Gouffran Lm it’s stupid like …and Shola like? wtf wouldn’t you give Adam Armstrong a start he has looked our most dangerous player and has only played about 8 minutes.

    unless sissoko playing central and not wide right then he is again not playing in his correct position mattnufc.

    Pardew said he picks the team on merit. if that us true then why is Shola in the squad never mind starting????

    As a lot of you have said, Pardew is so inept and out of his depth its pathetic.

    on a brighter note. congrats too my old pal clarky at brum. the last gasp equaliser has secured championship status. well done lee mate.

    as for our game i do hope those attending do vent their frustrations and anger today in all its glory.

    Merit – the quality of being particularly good or worthy, especially so as to deserve praise or reward.

    I feel really bad for Marv, Mbiwa, Benny and even Armstrong. Gouff is average at best, Ameobi is Ameobi, the def is probably the worst in te league, Gosling is exactly what dumb and dumber (Pard/Carv) love: untalented worker. Sadly, Remy will score and Pardew will save his old sorry @ss again.

    Cardiff are in a must win situation so just watch Pardew sit back and counter attack. Then after the game he will say something like I got the tactics spot on today…Aw really Alan a 6 year old kid could have came up with them tactics.

    My bad, I believed Sissoko would have been playing in the centre with Tiote and Anita. Should have guessed 4-4-2 was on the cards.
