Alan Pardew will likely be announced as the new Crystal Palace manager sometime today, but life goes on and Newcastle host second bottom Burnley tomorrow at St. James’ Park in a 3:00 pm kick off game.
It’s the first game of the post Pardew era at Newcastle and the first game of 2015, which we hope is a better year than this year has turned out to be.
John Carver meets Felix Magath
When John was the touchline manager at Fulham
Burnley are coming off a great result at Manchester City on Sunday, when they were 2-0 down at half time but came back to get a 2-2 draw, and certainly their form has been improving of late.
John Carver will be in charge of Newcastle for the next few games, and he will give a press conference today for this game.
Papiss Cisse is not available after picking up a three match ban for violent conduct, and we should hear from Carver who is available for the game tomorrow.
Maybe Jonas Gutierrez can be on the bench after he played another 90 minutes yesterday in a behind the scenes game that saw Davide Santon play 60 minutes but pick up an ankle injury.
It would be an inspiration to the fans and our players to see the Argentine winger on the bench tomorrow, and even get some playing time in the second half.
Jonas to score the winner?
We need some inspiration from somewhere.
