Poll: Can Newcastle Win At Swansea?


It’s going to be a very tough game for us on Saturday at the Liberty Stadium at Swansea, although we did manage a 2-2 draw last season.

In April, 2012 when we finished 5th in the league, we did get a 2-0 win with a brace from Papiss Cisse, but Swansea seem to keep improving every season, and have done very well since Garry Monk took over early last year.

    Think we will lose vs Swansea but not against the realms of fantasy that we can get something from it – think a lot will depend on who wins the battles of their wingers vs our fullbacks.

    Would love to see Aarons involved though but think the starting 11 will be the same as Soton. Main downside to that is that one of Perez, Aarons, SDJ or Mitrovic are guaranteed not to get on the pitch.

    I used to go to a old guy who used to treat people from all walks of life with all sorts of injuries that doctors & hospitals couldn’t really do much with.He used to treat Tony Green & he told me he could have got him back to full fitness but the club had him operated on too quick, he said probably for the insurance money as was not uncommon in those days and one of the directors was a surgeon ! A truly brilliant player who tragically only had one season with us but is a true LEGEND.

    Our new signings look promising, a decent performance on Sunday, Tuff appears to have agreed to stop calling bloggers knackers and undesirable types, Blackley and Tuff have agreed to stop bickering. All we need now is for the horse to be bolted to the cart.

    oops nearly forgot – Blackley you have to stop twisting what folk say -and giving totally false interpretations of what people say. Get that sorted and stop arguing and you may end up being a decent poster. I hope you are going to change however I’ve just put my stop watch on to see how many minutes you last. Can you present to the blog a new and reformed character.

    Back to Swansea – I’m a bit concerned about Anita – if he’s fit Wally will play him, but will he last the whole game or seeing what happened on Sunday will Swansea try to snuff him out.
    Clearly Mr T is off the pace -caught in possession a few times.
    Still not seen fully what de Jong can do so concerned about him.

    He may very well be superior to Willo however Big Mike wasn’t even on the bench .
    He isn’t going to walk into a PL team ahead of Mbemba Colo Taylor or even Dummett

    I think we should start with Mitrovic on Saturday. I thought Cisse was poor on Sunday. I also think we could be more direct on Saturday, with the likely formation 4-4-1-1 than 4-2-3-1, played on Sunday.

    I don’t understand the need to go for Dunk. Although an upgrade on Poor Willo, I don’t see him as a first team starter.
    Spend a bit more and bring in a first team player rather than something we already have in lascellas.
    Same with Byram, yes looks promise for the future but bring in a automatic starter at left back first, rather than bouncing between Haidara and Dummett

    And so Sky should give Moanrinio a hard time.
    He’s got found out this time for what he really is – no one is impressed by his ” look at me” ego antics anymore.
    Medical professionals deal with so much and to be slated and treated by Moanrinio as Dr. Carnerio has been is plain wrong. In fact she should sue Chelsea for Constructive Dismissal as she has a case. I posted previously – what would have been the outcome for Muamba if the Medical teams hadn’t rushed to his assistance. I wonder how Moanrinio would react if he keeled over at a match and asked for the Doctor, ” what Doctor would be the reply.

    Collectively fans are agreed on Chelsea’s antics on many occasions both on and off the field. Every club when playing Chelsea should now chant ” Eva Carnerio, Eva Carnerio, Eva Carnerio, Eva Carnerio” to the tune of ( eludes me ) but you know the one…from an Italian opera ? That would show solidarity across all clubs … and put Moanrinio in his place. Just waiting on his grudging apology.

    On the evidence, albeit short, from Sunday, it looks like Mitrovich is going to run at defenders from the off – trying to, whilst I won’t say barge past them into open space, but he’s clearly got one thing in mind. If they go two up against him the odds of him breaking through will be reduced.
    He does need to exhibit some control otherwise he’ll see a red – I sure Wally and the team are addressing this.
    So at the weekend I’ll be observing our obvious defensive shortcomings – Colo in particular, wing play -whoever starts, and who is going to create – if Anita comes off or gets marked/clobbered out the game.
    Would still be enough time to rectify weaknesses by new signings.

    lochinvar; Spot on mate. What would Mourinho say if the physio started telling him which player he should buy or select. To the best of my knowledge Mourinho has not become a physician during the close season.

    I suppose being the best league in the world we will attract some horrible buggers to our shores.
    On this theme did you see van Gaal’s presser?
    What an arrogant snotgobbling shitbag he is , if I was a journo and he spoke to me like that I go up and stick one on him.
    In case anybody feels I am being overly jingoistic . I will say that Nigel Pearson was certifiable.

    Click! Blackley you lasted about half an hour. That’s not bad for a first attempt. Maybe some breathing exercises or a little yoga may help you or failing that a bit of hypnotism- here try this :-
    “Look into my eyes, look into my eyes, the eyes, the eyes, not around the eyes, don’t look around my eyes, look into my eyes, you’re under. I have not been taking your underwear home, putting it on in my bedroom and then parading up and down in front of the mirror going (running his hands over his body) ‘Oh, oh, oh, oh’. Three, two, one… You’re back in the room.”

    Didn’t get time to respond earlier mate, I base my opinions on what I see though, your comment though is baffling somewhat “Our toon, for someone who doesn’t go to games, all your info on Arma is based on other’s opinions”

    Are you saying no people that now don’t attend games can’t have opinions? In my opinion from what I’ve seen from young Arma is nothing worth shouting about. He’s made ZERO impact albeit in small cameos, unlike some youngsters over the past few months that have taken there chances and are around his age when they did.

    Barkley
    Stones
    Bellerin
    Chambers
    Shaw
    Oxford (WH 16 year old who schooled Ozil)
    Bentleb
    Grealish

    Some might be slightly older, 1 or 2 younger but I’m glad for Arma he’s got a loan spell and can learn from his spell.

    You should say you “think” he is a better player.
    You have never seen him play in the PL.
    No-one has
