Ryan Taylor And Jonas Gutierrez Start For Newcastle


sunderland fc emblemnufc emblem

John Carver has just announced the Newcastle team to play Sunderland, and the surprise is that Jonas Gutierrez starts for the first time for Newcastle since he beat testicular cancer.

Teams:

Sunderland: Costel Pantilimon, Billy Jones, John O’Shea (c), Santiago Vergini, Patrick van Aanholt, Lee Cattermole, Jordi Gomez, Seb Larsson, Steven Fletcher, Connor Wickham, Jermain Defoe
Substitutes: Vito Mannone, Anthony Reveillere, Sebastian Coates, Liam Bridcutt, Adam Johnson, Will Buckley, Danny Graham

Newcastle: Tim Krul; Ryan Taylor, Daryl Janmaat, Mike Williamson, Jack Colback; Jonas Gutierrez; Remy Cabella, Moussa Sissoko (c), Yoan Gouffran, Sammy Ameobi; Ayoze Perez
Substitutes: Rob Elliot, Vurnon Anita, Olivier Kemen, Mehdi Abeid, Gabriel Obertan, Emmanuel Riviere, Adam Armstrong

Referee: Mike Dean (Wirral)

It looks like Jonas will be in central midfield and is preferred to both Anita and fit again Mehdi Abeid, and it’s good to see young Kemen on the bench.

Young Ayoze Perez is also in the starting line-up, and that’s an excellent move by John Carver to start Jonas, and if he is anything like he was against Arsenal in that second half, he could be a big player for us this afternoon.

Danger man Adam Johnson starts on the bench but we’ll see him sometime in the second half.

This is some of what John Carver has said about the game:

“Growing up as a Newcastle fan it’s the first fixture you look for on the list.” “As a manager it’s a proud moment. We all know it’s one of the biggest games in the North-East and so it’s something I’m more than looking forward to.”

“Our record isn’t very good and so I’m looking to break that. I think we have more than enough in the dressing room to do so. It’s a big occasion and we don’t want to make it five losses in a row.”

“There’s a lot of people out there that say our foreign players won’t understand what the derby means,” “But the majority of players in our dressing room have played in at least one and we drum into all of them how important this fixture is.”

“Hopefully over the last four games they’ll have felt a bit of hurt because I certainly have, and sometimes that’s what you need to spur you on.” “It’s a cup final for us and that’s how we’ll treat it.”

“Any team of mine that goes up against Sunderland will not be faulted for lack of effort, determination or not knowing what it means to the Club and the fans. I’ll be driving those guys forward.”

As usual John talks a good game, but what we want to see more of from John Carver and the lads is more display like in the second half against Arsenal – and more wins – not just talk.

In our last two away games at Manchester City and Everton John was just as positive but we were hammered 5-0 and 3-0 respectively.

A defeat by Sunderland today would be a disaster and that would mean four successive defeats in the league and five successive defeats against Sunderland – a side who have been struggling with relegation for the last three seasons.

More fans think we’ll lose this game than win it.

    Must swap colback with guti. Guti can’t do it on the wings, not got the legs for it anymore. But can make an impact in the centre with his experience

    This might be controversial but I’d take Gus Poyet.

    As for the starting 11, Gouffran….really? Even of he scores the winner he shouldn’t be starting 11.

    Jonas hopefully is at LB, I’d play Anita ahead of Raylor at RB and Abeid Colback sitting deep with sissoko pushing forward.

    Riviere can stay on the bench the bag of shite….or he could become the new mackem slayer

    “In Remi Garde’s case he was a failure abroad in a weak league. I guarantee you we have dodged a bullet not bringing him here. Mclaren is far more promising bet.”

    Garde is so shite that he won a game in Champions League – the weakest League in the world – with 7-1.

    Garde is a lot more promising than McClaren ever will be.

    Even Twente fans don’t want him back even if he won the league with them.

    Because the know that everything went their way that year. They know that Ajax scored 40 goals more than them and even conceded less goals and somehow didn’t end up winning.

    I rather have Chris Hughton or someone that have manage to win Championship with a lot of points than McClaren that struggle to get into play-off.

    Glad Johnson isn’t starting.

    They’ve put 3 up front; hope we can deal with that.

    I like Carver and want him for the job, not that keen on this team if Jonas is left back. Dont think Taylor and Jonas can both play Id play Jonas in the gouufran role and anita as the other defender and colback in midfield. Not a bad side though, hopefully obertan gets a game.

    I do actually agree with you. I’d probably prefer someone like Gus Poyet over Steve McClaren, more asthetically pleasing football.

    Should at least have Satka on the bench. If Janmaat or Williamson is injured / sent off. Who do we play at Centre half?

    Yes the squad is depleted for all of the reasons we know only too well. However, if it comes down to not making the best use of the meagre resources at hand……

    Anyone know the formation?

    Goofy?

    What does he have to do to get dropped. Not really his fault tbh though, multiple positions and none suited to him.

    Still, he does tend to walk around with his hands in his pockets most games

    I’ve said it for a long time, it doesn’t matter who our manager/ coach is our squad simply isn’t good enough.
    We’d struggle in the championship.
    Top eight?

    5 Live confirmed there is a back 4 and that Colback plays LB. The rest appears to be a mystery.

    Line up looks good.

    You can see that Carver got the idea of Gouffran in middle from the prep work on Arsenal and in particular Wenger moving Cazorla into DM.

    Thanks. I’m surprised by the lack of communication. It’s even filtering down into the first team now. Joke.

    Maybe this is what johnny boy had up his sleeve all along. No formation. Just go out there and enjoy it lads.

    Wouldn’t suprise me in the slightest.
