What’s Our Best Team For Southampton – Without de Jong?


Hopefully we will have both Cheick Tiote and Jack Colback fit for the next game at Southampton a week today, and we suppose Jack and Cheick would be our first choice central midfielders in the 4-2-3-1 formation.

Cheick Tiote wednesday-3

Cheick Tiote – should be fit for Saints game?

It was really a sobering and short notice that Newcastle put out on the web-site yesterday about Siem de Jong, and it kind of validated the Shields Gazette report that he could be badly injured and out for some months:

“Siem de Jong sustained an injury to his right thigh in training earlier this week and is to be assessed further at the start of next week.”

“Initial indications are that he is likely to be out for a number of months.”

The estimates are that it could be as long as four months that de Jong is out injured with that thigh injury – and that’s hardly good news for Newcastle and Alan Pardew.

Siem wont be fit for some time,  but assuming Cheick and Jack are fit for our next game, maybe this is the best team we can field at St. Mary’s Stadium:

Krul
Janmaat Williamson Coloccini (c) Haidara
Colback Tiote
Sissoko Cabella Aarons
Riviere
Subs: Elliot Taylor (S) Abeid Anita Gouffran Perez Ferreyra

Alan Pardew has to start Rolando Aarons against Southampton – just has to – and it’s probably at the expense of Yohan Gouffran, and we’ll probably have Remy Cabella in the number 10 role.

And we need some goalscorers on the bench too,  which is why we have both Perez and Ferreyra in there.

We somehow need to get a decent result at Southampton – a win would be great – a draw would be good.

What would your team be for our next game at Southampton?

    Lesh @ 48

    To be fair to the club it did say that its strategy is to seek out talent, pay a reasonable transfer amount with a good resale value that they can exploit.

    Cabaye and Debuchy are the results. No doubt Sissoko will be next as he has publicly stated his case with the infamous ‘Champions League’.

    I read somewhere that Premiership teams that cannot qualify for the Champions League and are unlikely to be relegated will have their better players poached by much bigger and richer clubs which can offer European competition.

    I don’t criticise Pardew thinking Ashley would have any interest in football matters but just in terms of his own dignity- despite him trying his best with actions to lose it all- I don’t see how any professional coach could watch that team and think anything else than:
    “I can’t believe I’m getting away with this!”

    He is supposed to organise and motivate. I don’t think he is succeeding in either from seeing that team play.

    I realise he hardly has a good reputation but I find it hard to believe that- even he- would be so slimy as to purposely keep lying in front of the camera.

    I’m more inclined to believe he’s just delusional- he thinks he’s doing a good job.

    Hang on – whoa – lines pulling – lines tight -strike. Yes I’ve got another bite. Let’s see what we’ve got here – (hauls in) disappointing it’s Mojo again – threw him back last week or the week before -he keeps coming back for the same bait (analogy -keeps coming back accepting the same crap).
    This time he re-invents what my post says – not with any guile or deception – he must believe it. He posted.

    Mister Tuff
    The “Jam Tomorrow Brigade” is more applicable to you and your ideals than anyone else.Do you seriously think that if Pardew goes we will all of a sudden get proper transfer windows where we strengthen the team?,that the club will show some proper ambition?.Are you taking lsd?

    Could you please explain how jam tomorrow is applicable to me.
    Also please explain how I think if Percy goes the windows will be better and the team strengthened.

    Lengthy reply not needed just some quotes attributable to me will suffice.

    1. Have you ever eaten jellied eels and mash.
    2. Do you own a Pearly King or Queen suit.

    4. Have you ever ordered a Ruby Murray using the dog and bone

    You have just re-posted my explanation as to why you are the “Jam Tomorrow Brigade”,i’m sorry if it went over your head.And,by logic,if you are campaigning to get our manager out you must think the replacement will do a better job,he will be under the same restrictions as Pardew.Do you think Jabba want’s us in Europe again?,if he did he would have spent in January,so i’ll ask you again,what makes you think that Pardew 2.0 will be better?

    First post 🙂

    My lineup would be-

    Krul

    Janmat Willo Colo Haidara/Dummet

    Tioté Colback

    Gouffran Sissoko Cabella

    Rivierré

    Bench- Elliot, S. Taylor, Anita, Abeid, Aarons, Ayose, Dummet/Haidara.

    Aarons on for Gouffran in the 55. Abeid on for Sissoko in the 65.

    If The Saints, play with that guy Tashido in the central defense we could win, major liability.

    We need Tioté and Colback to play their A game, facing Wanayama and Schnederlein, and at the same time they have to keep, Ward-Prowse and Tadîc at check gonna be a though one, might consider Dummet playing this one.

    Rivierré on the other hand could get a goal this week, Saints playing a more attacking type of fooball then Villa and Crystal Palace.

    I think this could be a very good game.

    2 – 1, Rivierre for the brace, Ward Prowse on a Set piece.

    no chance pardew will start aarons. ferreyra won’t even be on the bench(marveaux no.2), gouffran is pardew’s favorite player(jonas 2.0).

    standby to get thonked by southampton.

    Not sure how our best team could have had de jong in it . .. not actually had chance to prove out….

    Either way I think we will probably win 2 or 3-1….as unfortunately P45due always seems to put 4-5 matches together when the so called (no evidence) pressure is on…

    “I’m just wondering when the penny will drop and we all realise that we’re having the same discussions/arguments that we’ve been having for months.

    Whether AP stays or goes it is bad for MA. If he stays, it is utterly indisputable that MA is satisfied with mediocre and merely wants a puppet to do his bidding, act as his mouthpiece and churn out mid-table finishes while he pockets the cash. It is abundantly clear as it is, but there are still some people out there who think that MA actually judges AP by performances on the pitch – a laughable suggestion.

    If he goes, MA either appoints a like minded, mediocre lackey who will be AP Mk. II to do the same job all over again and we, the fans will see right through it. Or, he could appoint a talented, ambitious coach who will not accept the bullshit thrown at him by his boss which would lead to another Keegan style meltdown – something MA will be very keen to avoid so the latter scenario is very unlikely.

    The overriding point is that it doesn’t matter who our manager is, whether it be Pardew or Mourinho. This club will not have any tangible chance of successfully pushing top 6 until MA leaves the club.”

    great post mate, we need more people like you.

    i’ve been a one trying this for ages but time and time again i see them repeating things over and over thinking ashley will still get a good manager in if AP was sacked.

    but at the minute they will just say i’m a pardew lover.

    but the more we have the easier it will be to prove we are not pardew lovers, we just toon fans who want to see a great NUFC long term, not a short term good NUFC.

    Looking at the odds for next manager I would take Moyes for sure, then Laudrup maybe, but maybe as Napoli got knocked out the CL we could try and tempt Benitez…

    Mr.Tuff.

    Where do I start? Firstly, are you actually saying that anyone who can answer yes to each of your questions cannot be a ‘true toon fan’. This must be one of the most outrageous statements you have ever made.
    Secondly, ‘jam tomorrow’ sums up you Pardew haters perfectly. You have somehow got it into your heads that when (and I do say when because every manager ends up out of a job) so when Ashley gets shot of AP, he’ll replace him with a dynamic guy who’ll revolutionise our playing style and bring back joy to the terraces.
    You clearly haven’t studied the Ashley Doctrine which states :’ No cups, no European football and no relegation’.
    After seven years of Ashley, it’s taking an awfully long time for the penny to drop .

    Mag 52
    It is my opinion that – re the Liverpool game – Percy came to an arrangement not to play Remy due to the World Cup – this being the case Percy must have lied to the fans -and then compounded his dishonesty by denying it. He has previous for saying players are injured viz Benny. Additionally the highly suspicious return of ol permed hair with fractured back vertebrae to South America – where we witnessed that part of his recovery physiotherapy was jumping up and down on the terraces of San Lorenzo.
    I have no doubt that it is Mr Tubbs who makes all the big decisions about buying and selling at the club. Again who do you believe about what happenend in the Carroll incident – I believe Carroll was forced out to make money. Subsequent to this if Percy did not know how Tubbs operates he certainly would after the Carroll sale. Subsequently, Percy has been complicit in Tubbs selling policy -where it appears that Tubbs financial gains are superior to providing top quality football/entertainment/hope for the thousand who supports the team. He has never spoken out at all.
    As far as press statement (written) they will be vetted. As far as live press conferences go – Percy lets his mouth run away with him -he’s done it since his West Ham days (did a post about it a couple of years back) – the assigned him a pretty PR assistant – (no further comment about the rumours) he is arrogant and talks gibberish -sometimes foretting what he has said previously.
    He should never have been appointed in the first place – just not good enough -never was and never will be.

    My post of 4 questions suggests nothing about whether answering yes or no will determine whether you are a true toon fan.
    or not. You may think it does but it does not. Skilfully designed to tempt out pro Percy Brigade members who are itching for a ruck.

    Team we could have fielded if Pardew wasn’t a horrible judge of a players ability and let them go for nothing :

    —————————Krul——————————

    –Janmaat——–Willo——-M’biwa——–Haidara–

    —————————Tiote—————————–

    ——–Sissoko————————-Marveaux——–

    —————————-HBA—————————-

    ——–Rivierre—————————Cabella——–

    Don’t know about you but I would much rather have that team than the one we have now .

    Someone like Martinez in charge of that team would be technical quick and comfortably keep us in the Premier League .

    However with the team we have now, De Jong injured, no top class striker and Pardew in charge relegation is a real possibility .

    I don’t understand why people want Moyes as manager, he’s just as much as a dinosaur as pardew is. We need to move along with the times and do what the likes of Liverpool, Everton and Spurs have done and get a top young manager who knows the modern game and plays an attractive brand of football.

    Top 3:
    1. Frank de Boer
    2. Christophe Galtier
    3. Michael Laudrup (however I don’t think he wants to come back to the prem)

    What a dope.
    listen here divvy I cannot explain something I did not say – get that through you thick head -thickhead. What a bloody bird brain!
    Don’t mind having a debate -but not as a consequence of false attributions.
