De Jong And Haidara Start Against Crystal Palace


nufc emblemCrystal Palace  .svg

Alan Pardew has named both Siem de Jong and Massadio Haidara in the starting eleven against Crystal Palace this afternoon at St. James’ Park.

No it’s not Charlton Athletic – must be that Alzheimer’s creeping in (again). 🙁

And it looks like Moussa Sissoko will play in central midfield today alongside Jack Colback, and that’s the team we thought would start today – but we had young Rolando Aarons starting in place of Yoan Gouffran.

Newcastle will again play in their familiar 4-2-3-1 formation with Riviere up front, and de Jong playing in the number 10 position.

Rolando Aarons and Ayoze Perez are both on the bench and could see some action this afternoon, where our major hurdle will be to score some goals against a weak-looking Palace  team, who have lost both their league games so far, and are playing their first game under new manager Neil Warnock.

Newcastle: (4-2-3-1): Tim Krul; Daryl Janmaat, Mike Williamson, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Massadio Haidara; Moussa Sissoko, Jack Colback; Remy Cabella, Siem de Jong, Yoan Gouffran; Emmanuel Riviere
Substitutes: Rob Elliot, Paul Dummett, Steven Taylor, Vurnon Anita, Gabriel Obertan, Rolando Aarons, Ayoze Perez

Referee: Mike Jones (Cheshire)

Newcastle need a win this afternoon and in our poll 70% of fans think we’ll win this game – so it will be disappointment if we don’t do that.

Howay The Lads!!

    We was unlucky again today, a little bit, if I’m honest. When they made it 3-0 on half time, I thought the ref got that wrong and he will see the tv on that for sure. That was the game changer if I’m honest. Its not the situation you want to see happen at that stage and it spoiled our afternoon, 100%. I tried the death stare on Neil before the game but it doesn’t always work, for sure and we won’t always be able to count on it this season, if I’m honest.

    as for CB..forget that celtic bloke.. nastasic is avalible..
    21 years old..PL-CL experience, talented, 6ft 2,… there are probably 20 clubs after him, but we’d be foolish not to make a bid..

    p.s.: go burnley! dont let man utd score.. 🙂

    Good team. Aarons and Perez on in the second half to finish Palace off with a couple of goals.

    This has to be our strongest side, so there can be no excuses today, pressure is on Pardew to get the midfield linking up with the striker

    Totally agree. Looks like a very shrewd buy.
