Newcastle Star Could Be Fit For Sunday

Siem de Jong came on as a sub against both Swansea at home and Leicester City away – but then after the tragedy at Leicester he was not available, and although he wasn’t technically injured he was told to build up the strength of his quad muscles.

But Siem is now back in  training this week and there’s a possibility he could be on the bench on Sunday against West Ham, and as he showed at Swansea how he can score goals for Newcastle.

De Jong returned last month from the collapsed lung he suffered in February, so it’s been a very bad first season for the 26 year-old Dutchman on Tyneside, as far as both injuries and illness go.

John Carver has said that Siem could be available for the West Ham game, so we’ll need to wait for John Carver’s press conference,  to see if he’s fit enough to be on the bench.

We are also hoping to see Papiss Cisse start the game, because it’s now or never for Newcastle – but somehow it could be that John Carver will keep with Manu Riviere.

We hope Papiss starts because he can score a goal from anywhere at any time, and that’s what we need on Sunday.

It would be very good to have Siem on the bench.

What do you think?

    Can we please stop this thing that Pardue was forced out by the “Pardue out lot” as you refer to them?
    If he was ver going to be forced out by fans having a go ( inside the ground I may say) it would have been after the saints away game .
    Had palace not come calling with all they offered he would still be here
    He being the opportunist he is saw an exit and it was win win for Ashley.
    Ashley had a lot of chances to fire him but declined not out of loyalty but because he knew he couldn’t not get a decent replacement for what he as paying Pardue and also one that would put up with the shit and toe the line.
    We all recall it was a case of who will blink first as Ashley was never going to pay out the rest of the 8 year contract. And Pardue was never going to walk away from it to oblivion.
    It had nothing to do with the fans. Fact
    In my opinion fans who pay their hard earned have every right to voice an opinion .
    Even wenger as coping it ffs
    Have a look back through the posts of recent times to when we were being humiliated on a weekly basis Liverpool at home ,spurs home and don’t mention the unwashed.
    All on pardues watch
    Had the powers that be done a proper job in January they would have said pardew can leave once we have our man .
    But no ash saw quick cash and gambled
    Had we got in ANYBODY other than carver Pardue would not get a mention but hey yes blame the fans for not putting up with the complete lack of anything resembling ambition.
    Me thinks you have been away to long bonny lad

    Pretty sure if ings fancied a season in the championship he’d stay at Burnley… They’ll be better placed than newcastle to bounce back.

    Wouldn’t at all shocked me if he resigned for Bournemouth but personally can see him at Spurs! His attributes would link well with Kane and an english strikeforce would have £££ all over it which is What would interest Levy

    How many times did Pardue tell us we can’t compete with pretty much anyone with regards to transfers?
    19th richest club in world football and we can’t even buy our way out of trouble .?
    Oh yes blame that pesky pardueout “lot”

    Manure will play the kids against Hull.

    We simply must keep it together against the Hammers.

    No stupid tackles, solid in midfield but for heavens sake play Cisse from the start. Don’t give them the incentive to attack us without having someone they need to worry about.

    Abeid must start for Taylor.

    SDJ must start if fit

    Aarons must start.

    Let’s face it the team we have been putting out in the last 10 games hasn’t worked. We need individual skill to get us something, not running like headless chickens covering 12 miles on a pitch. I could do that @

    Ed you haven’t a clue what your on about, you moan and groan about Charnley, Ashley and Carver but then blame the Pardew out lot, Do you expect some of us sit by and let our club rot when even you can see the issues that face us ? get a grip. your meant to be unbiased but you blame Pardew out lot.

    The most important team news is Ryan Taylor in or out and willo in or out!
    We probably need to line up with Janmaat, Colo, Willo and Dummet in defense!
    Id be tempted to go 4-4-2 and play Cisse and Riviere up top and bring Perez on around 60 mins. Hes always dangerous coming off the bench.
    Id play Sissoko right mid! Less impact on the team if he can’t be bothered.
    Id line up
    Janmaat Colo Willo Dummett
    sissoko Colback Abeid Jonas
    riviere Cisse

    I believe cabella could become a good player stillbut he’s been too ineffective for such a big game! West Ham game will be about grinding it out. Being able to throw Perez, cabella and de jong on in the second half could be huge

    Carver will put him on when chasing the game and less than 5 minutes left to ” give him a run out ”
    If he’s fit play him
    If not don’t
    Carver when asked on Mastermind if he knew the answer to the question ” what is the name given to the movement of a football between two players ” didn’t know the reply but still got the answer wrong

    I think we’ve just got to go for it. I dont want to see Raylor anywhere near the team.


    Bringing De Jong at some point early in the second half.

    Bam bams agree on abeid
    Taylor should be no where near the first team
    The only thing that got my hopes up about him being fit again was his dead ball stuff but simply has been woeful.
    Aaron’s also from the off.
    Please don’t wait until we are a goal down to bring on impact players after 80 mins and say we tried .
    I think anyone who saw us go down at villa will recall what gutted us most is we went down without even a whimper
    On Sunday at least go at west ham be cause we certainly cannot defend for 90 mins so getting a goal is our only option
    Yes goals john … They tend to win football matches. Always have always will.

    danuneek – you would think that goals were at least possible with that team.

    I’d go with that other than I’d hook cabella and have sissoko on the wide right with abeid in next to colback.
    Like Perez in the number 10 role to I think that’s his natural position nothing worse than seeing balls lumped up to him when he is covered by 6.4 centre half or over hit passes for his to chase into corners or simply to make the keeper. ” have to pick it up”

    Oh yeah

    Regardless who plays i just cant see us winning a game atm.
    Sorry for being negative but who the fcuk can blame me.
    A point will do, i cant see Hull beating Manure.
    Maybe even the mackems could ship in 5 goals this wk and there is another option for the drop,. As it is i think its us or Hull.
