Tiote And Dummett Start For Newcastle – Cisse On Bench


nufc emblemHull City Crest 2014.svg

Alan Pardew has made two changes to his team to play Hull City at home this afternoon,  and in come Dummett and Tiote for Haidara and Anita.

But it’s a surprising selection and Haidara was our Man of the Match last week, but he’s been dropped and replaced by Paul Dummett – go figure that one out.

But the return of Cheick Tiote to the starting line-up should provide some steel in midfield, and it’s good to have Cheick back.

The team will once again play in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Newcastle: (4-2-3-1): Tim Krul; Daryl Janmaat, Mike Williamson, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Paul Dummett; Cheick Tiote, Jack Colback; Moussa Sissoko, Remy Cabella, Yoan Gouffran; Emmanuel Riviere
Substitutes: Rob Elliot, Massadio Haidara, Steven Taylor, Vurnon Anita, Sammy Ameobi, Papiss Cisse, Ayoze Perez

Hull (4-1-2-1-2): Allan McGregor; Ahmed Elmohamady, Curtis Davies (c), Michael Dawson, Andrew Robertson; Tom Huddlestone; Jake Livermore, Stephen Quinn; Mohamed Diame; Abel Hernandez, Nikica Jelavic
Substitutes: Steve Harper, Liam Rosenior, James Chester, David Meyler, Robbie Brady, Sone Aluko, Gaston Ramirez

Referee: Neil Swarbrick (Lancashire)

It’s good to see Papiss Cisse on the bench and he could get say a 10 minute run-out today – and maybe he could be ready for next week’s tough game at Stoke.

This is what Alan Pardew has said today about this important game for Newcastle:

“It’s about being professional, going out there on Saturday and being as strong as we can be and trying to win as many fans back with our performance as we can,”

“We need to get back to not too long ago and get that performance that we had at Villa, and get ourselves a win.” “With players and staff, what we have to do is try and make sure that we give as professional a performance as we can.”

“I don’t fear the game – I think it’s a tough game,” “I have to say that Hull on Monday night were terrific, as I thought West Ham were, and it was a game you’d have to say was at the top of the Barclays Premier League level.”

“The most important thing is that our team don’t put in the performance they put in against Southampton, that we show that we’re unaffected by surroundings, unaffected by the opposition and that our spirit is strong, and I like to think we can do that.”

This could be a water-shed game today and another defeat could see Alan Pardew  finally lose his job at Newcastle.

But we are looking for a win, but that would seem to be very difficult,  given the negative atmosphere that will be created at St. James’ Park this afternoon – as fans demonstrate against manager Alan Pardew.

    just seen soccer saturday.
    well if it is to be believed, we are doomed.
    ashley has been interviewed and by the sounds of it he doesn’t give a sh1t.

    ashley still seems happy with pardew.
    ashley will not spend the sort of money that we need to spend.
    ashley seems to insist patience is needed.

    paul merson himself has said it now
    we are never going to change the mind until we abandon the stadium.

    i myself still think we can watch games but the only way i see that work is when we put sports direct to shame.

    At least Haidara tried in the last game, compared to a number of others……….drop him and teach him not to do that again.

    repost:
    Could you imagine him leaving David Forsey as CEO of Sports Direct if he has 9 months of negative growth, the other shareholders want him out and the staff dont like him?

    Wouldn’t have gone longer than a few days without him addressing it and talking to everyone involved.

    Thats my point, he is supposed to be this big businessman but he manages Newcastle nothing like a business

    Not sure, liverpool managed to get rid of hicks and gillette without leaving the stadium empty.

    I think the sack pardew group will hopefully next focus on ashley, speak with people from liverpool as to how they forced their idiot owners out and we should do the same.

    A long campaign must be fought.

    Jb I think that was sarcasm mate haha.

    Anyone else pardew is setting up to lose here, maybe to force Ashley’s hand. Surely he can see it doesn’t work?

    And I watched the game at villa, we were shite so don’t get what he’s on about there.

    Guys, ashley has said he wont sack pardew no matter what. he will be patient. you need to stop going to home games its the only way. Thing i suggest is.. for away games go and protest against pardew and chant etc. home games either abandon or turn up late for like 2nd half only and protest at pardew no matter if we are winning or losing.

    Exactly. I really don’t know why he bothers with us. He could hire some people to run the club properly, get as much out of it as he can whilst he is hire….cause he certainly isn’t here for fun and enjoyment.

    It’s almost like he does it deliberately, trying to wind us up whilst milking the club for everything it’s worth.

    i.e. people might not repsect my idea as i dont go games, im from sheffield. not able to go games etc. but my idea like i posted before you need to stop going to home games. if you have season ticket then ol=nly thing i can suggest is turn up late i.e. 2nd half only etc. keep doing this every game. ashley has said no way he will sack pardew.

    A Newcastle banner today reads:

    “We don’t demand a team that wins, we demand a team that tries.”

    Can’t say fairer than that.

    Willo & Collo keep their places despite having nightmares against Southampton, yet Haidara is dropped when he was our best player last Saturday.

    This man never ceases to amaze me.

    you all don’t want fcuken dummett in the team.

    Well then blame fcuken ashley, LBs at newcastle dummett hadaira.
    Hadaira has been sh1t and goes too far up field ashley doesn’t provide money to get the second quality LB.

    BTW stats show hadaira in the team has seen us concede more than when dummett is in team.

    not even de boer is going to make a difference if you don’t accept these players.

    check my post earlier. I said it would be this team and the only change would be LB

    you know because it makes sense to change the LB when you need goals and your 2 CB are poor

    In the recent past NUFC fans have rioted in the city centre, the Central Station and outside the ground with one idiot punching a police horse.

    Fans have every right to protest – I just hope it doesn’t turn into violence inside or outside the ground especially if we get beat.

    how sad is that if he is doing it just to wind the fans up.

    I dont think the relationship is irreconcilable, he just CHOOSES not to make an effort

    Again, the complete antithesis of a businessman

    Sage,
    Massive difference between Liverpools situation and ours. Their protest worked due to Hicks and Gillet falling out, but mainly because RBS recalled a 70/80 million quid loan. No chance they would have gone easily otherwise.

    Pardew looking for a draw as he’s going for the more defense minded Dummett over Haidara and going by his pre-match comments.

    Pardew out! Looking for a draw against Hull ffs! Please leave asap.

    Only looking for an improvement in performance and not a blooming win and 3 much needed points!!

    The only way things are going to change at this club is if people start protesting against Sports Direct. Not Alan Pardew. Not Mike Ashley. Sports Direct.

    If you damage his brand he is gone. Protesting anything else is a waste of time.

    I am absolutely dismayed that we are still playing the same formation. Gouffran should NOT even be on the bench given his recent performances. Armstrong should be given a go.

    Catchy,

    If there is a pitch invasion – which wouldn’t surprise me – I fear that some idiot will get to Pardew in the dug out.

    If that happens the FA will throw the book at us.

    And they will be absolutely right.
