Janmaat Starts – Anita, Aarons , Cisse On Bench


qprnufc emblem

John Carver has just announced his team for what is one of the most important games for Newcastle since our relegation back in May, 200 and there’s only one change with Daryl Janmaat coming back into the side in place of Vurnon Anita.

Newcastle (4-3-3): Tim Krul; Daryl Janmaat, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Paul Dummett, Jonas Gutierrez; Moussa Sissoko, Ryan Taylor, Jack Colback; Ayoze Perez, Emmanuel Riviere, Remy Cabella
Substitutes: Freddie Woodman, Vurnon Anita, Mehdi Abeid, Sammy Ameobi, Rolando Aarons, Yoan Gouffran, Papiss Cisse

Referee: Lee Probert (Wiltshire)

You can hardly call John Carver a brave manager – and he has not started the game with Papiss Cisse, but keeps with Manu Riviere who has yet to score a PL goal this season.

That’s even though we are short of goals and Papiss is now fit again – and is our top scorer with 11 goals in just 20 appearances – and we haven’t scored a goal in our last five road games – all defeats.

John cannot wait too long before using Papiss Cisse since we have only two games to play.

Janmaat comes into the side as expected in place of the unlucky Anita who drops to the bench.

Newcastle will play in a 4-3-3 formation today.

This is what interim coach John Carver has said about QPR before the game:

“If I was Chris Ramsey and I had just lost at Man City by the score line they lost then I’d be at my players to put on a show.”

“Let’s not forget this is their last home game in the Premier League for at least one season,  and they did take a beating last weekend, so I’d want my players to put on a good show.”

“Yes, they may be a little more relaxed, yes he might play some younger players, but there’s one or two players in that team that will have a point to prove and will want to go out on a high.”

“We know how difficult it is to go to Man City and get a result but that will drive them forward now.” “I have sympathy for Chris – he hasn’t got a great deal of experience managing in the Premier League but he’s a good guy and a good coach and hopefully he’ll get the job next season.”

“But for now there are some big characters in the QPR dressing room that won’t want to do us any favors at the weekend.” “I’m looking forward to it because it’s going to be a big challenge for us, there will be pressure on but we will have to embrace that.”

Almost one in two fans think we can win this game today – which would be our first win in 10 games since we beat Aston Villa 1-0 at home at the end of February.

How Will Newcastle Fare At QPR?

We really need a win today and with Aston Villa currently losing 5-1 at Southampton after 70 minutes.

Newcastle could go above them in the league tonight with a win – the Saints scored three goals in three minutes  after 12 minutes and were 5-0 down after 38 minutes before Benteke got one back for Villa just before half time.

Comments welcome.

    seriously, carver is a clueless moron. and deserves to be fired on the spot if we dont win this game. His team selection is abysmal. ANita needs to be playing opposite janmat taylor needs to be on the bench

    He just can’t help it, honest john that is. What a w@nker FFS!

    I’ve asked this for weeks but WTF has Abeid done to be consistently on the bench whilst a player who has offered fcukall and is out of contract in the summer, starts. Again. It makes it worse because Abeid inbetween sissoko and Colback would I think be pretty good.

    You couldn’t make it up.

    This looks like 4-2-3-1. Very attacking.

    I expect Aarons and Cisse to come on in the second half.

    The key question is whether QPR have their flip flops on with their eye on their holidays or whether they want to put on a show for their fans on their last outing in the Premiership.

    So far today the Soton / Villa result has gone our way so things to be cheerful.

    seriously though, you play Riviere instead of Sissoko and Raylor instead of Abeid.

    has he even been watching the last 9 games?

    I said it earlier, if Ryan taylor plays we lose simple as. JC only has himself to blame, both Anita and abeid on the bench aswell. What is it with these managers?? You lose 8 games in a row but change nothing?? A draw against WB was good enough to keep the faith for a week but without a win today we are in it big time. I just hope your faith in your team selection isn’t your undoing Mr carver.

    best starting line up would have been
    – janmaat in central defence instead of colocinni
    – anita at right back.
    – Ameobu on the left and perez instead of riviere upfront

    Guaranteed 3 points

    Riverire done alright last week and Cisse is nowhere near fit enough. Ryan Taylor has been abysmal for weeks though and shouldn’t be anywhere near team. Does he even know Taylor is leaving in a fortnight? probably not.

    We need another big performance from our captain today.

    Last week he showed real composure and class . Calm heads the order of the day.

    I wouldve thought this team picks itself with Guti being a fill-in that could possibly be replaced with pretty much anyone else

    Janmaat.Coloccini.Dummett.Gutierrez
    Sissoko.Abeid.Collback.Cabella
    Cisse.Perez
