9 Changes – Darlow, Williamson Aarons, Gouffran, Thauvin Start

Head coach Steve McClaren has just named his side for the second round tie of the League Cup against Northampton Town and he has made some big changes to the side.

Steve McClaren has made 9 changes from the side that started at Old Trafford on Saturday, and as expected Janmaat, Lascelles and Williamson are in the back four.

Newcastle: Darlow, Janmaat, Lascelles, Williamson, Haidara, Tiote, Gouffran, Aarons, de Jong, Thauvin, Perez
Subs: Elliot, Dummett, Mbemba, Colback, Wijnaldum, Toney, Mitrovic

Only Haidara and Perez also started the game on Saturday, so it’s really the second team that is playing against  Northampton tonight, although it still looks a strong side.

It looks like Tiote and Gouffran will be the holding midfielders and Thauvin also starts his first game for Newcastle.

Northampton born goalkeeper Karl Darlow as expected will make his debut for Newcastle tonight – against his home town team.

The bench is strong, and former Northampton striker Ivan Toney is a sub tonight, and maybe he could make his debut tonight – depending on how the game goes.

This is what Steve McClaren has said about tonight’s game:

“We will put our strongest possible team out, taking into account what happened on Saturday, taking into account the game this weekend and taking into account that we have a very good squad.”

“Tuesday’s team will be strong enough and good enough to win the game. Our attitude has to be right, though.” “Northampton are a good team,”

“We’ve been watching them, and they are physical, strong, and put in lots of crosses.”

“Any team on their day can beat anybody, no matter what division. And if we are not right, or don’t do it right, Northampton are a team who can hurt us.”

“They can play with freedom, relaxation, and every minute they get by and every tackle they win will be a boost to them. We must make sure we don’t give them that.”

An overwhelming parentage think we will win this game tonight.

  • 7 sing in the corner // Aug 25, 2015 at 6:54 PM

    Wow… De Jong!? Wince every time he twists, turns or takes a tackle. Nice to have him out on the pitch tonight. Aarons Perez and Thauvin. No shortage of skill and youthful exuberance tonight then?

  • 8 Dennis Twice // Aug 25, 2015 at 6:55 PM

    Attack Toon attack, attack!

  • 9 Hail Wor Ashley // Aug 25, 2015 at 6:55 PM

    Ashley IN!

    Ashley’s reign will bring us at least 1 trophy within the next few years, all organically funded, being one of the best run clubs.

    He will reap what he has sown after riding out some cold harsh winters in exile, the Geordie nation will embrace him once more and those that don’t will see their lives unravel, their friends and family disown them and the only job on offer a zero hours contract at Sports Direct, for eternity..

  • 10 spaghetti bandit // Aug 25, 2015 at 6:56 PM

    Decent team,, glad to see thauvin and aarons start,, if gouffran is going to play then why not as striker as thts where he has played most before us,, how can anyone see him as a cm never mind a holding cm…. Beggars belief,, I actually drove past th Northampton team this morning walking along the road believe it or not not far from the marriot at th race course,, walking away as to head to tht dog grooming place nxt to vosa haha,, no idea where they were going I did however give them a beep and proceeded to make 5 nil with my hands they jus waved and laffed.. Doubt you will see arsenal walking along there this weekend

  • 11 SUTTY1978 // Aug 25, 2015 at 6:56 PM

    Surely he could have played Cisse or Mitro? They’ve only had 1.5 games each and neither will play 90 mins against Arsenal.
    Is Gouffy playing Def Mid or Perez? He played Perez there in preseason. What a crappy all round selection this is. Ginger Pardew strikes again.

  • 12 Toony Poony // Aug 25, 2015 at 6:56 PM

    Gouffran…GOUFFRAN?!
    And it looks like hes playing in the middle. Keemon Schteve

  • 14 Spellcheck // Aug 25, 2015 at 6:57 PM

    Looking forward to seeing how our second string shall get on. Good win, nice Draw for the next round please. HWTL.

  • 15 ronaldo aarons // Aug 25, 2015 at 6:57 PM

    I personally would rather give kemen a start rather than gouffran especially if he is playing next to tiote. No qualms about the rest of the team. I would be interested to see which side aarons and thauvin are, hope aarons is on the left.

  • 16 CDEVINE69 // Aug 25, 2015 at 6:58 PM

    looks like 4-1-4-1 to me. its northampton town for gods sake, any formation should be good enough. lets just get ready for a top 3 prem side away in 3rd round……

  • 17 SUTTY1978 // Aug 25, 2015 at 6:58 PM

    Spaghetti, if you did see Arsenal they would probably be signalling 6-0 back to you!

  • 18 TheToonKing // Aug 25, 2015 at 6:58 PM

    I don’t think there will be any links….it’s not televised… 🙁

    good enough team though, attack is strong, no excuses. I bet on us to win, I never do that 😀

  • 19 JamesToon // Aug 25, 2015 at 6:59 PM

    just f off gouffwon

  • 20 SUTTY1978 // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:00 PM

    If they dont do well, who will the Ginger Pardew decide to scapegoat? The young players like Aarons no doubt instead of the senior crap players like Gouffy & Willo.

  • 21 WWSBRD // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:01 PM

    Goofy CM oh dear McClaren we got off to such a good start and now this?

  • 22 ronaldo aarons // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:01 PM

    Why is he a ginger pardew?

  • 23 spaghetti bandit // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:02 PM

    Re sutty
    Aye ya probably rite mate ha

  • 24 ronaldo aarons // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:02 PM

    Formation could even be a 4-1-3-2 with gouffran and Perez up front

  • 25 Slank // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:02 PM

    The forward line of Aarons, Perez and Thauvin looks quick and tricky.

    Nice to see Toney on the bench.

  • 26 SPRINGY // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:03 PM

    surprised to see goofy tbh….not many would of put him in there side

  • 27 geordie157 // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:04 PM

    Gouffran is an odd choice, bigi or kemen would have made more sense or even vuckic possibly.
    Pretty strong side though and good subs

  • 28 almondrichie // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:07 PM

    any links for the match???????

  • 29 Our Toon // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:07 PM

    Gouffran is a strange choice, perfect chance to give Kemen a game. The biggest disappoint for all of us is that Perez is playing amd obertan isn’t. This means Obertan will start against Arsenal!!

  • 30 sing in the corner // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:07 PM

    Jail for Ashley must be at sea…
    Too much time has elapsed since the team announcement without a stinging diatribe about the toon not trying to win this cup! 🙂

  • 31 sing in the corner // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:09 PM

    Our Toon

    Agree this would be a good chance to blood Kemen. What must the kid be thinking now, if he can’t get a game like this?

  • 32 JP...from The Rock // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:09 PM

    So then lads are there any links at all?? I was really hoping to see this :/

  • 33 SUTTY1978 // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:09 PM

    Ginger Pardew, same traits – making too many changes, playing players out of position, favouring “senior players” over talented younger players.

  • 34 swemag // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:09 PM

    We’ll just ignore the funny guy then…

  • 35 jesperfuglsang - capt'n awesome of the lemon crew // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:10 PM

    Will it be on the radio?

  • 36 croftus5678 // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:10 PM

    if goofy is played as a striker then i have no probs what so ever of him playing as tbf he has not had a proper bash at it and when he was played there he looked very good tbh.

    and it was the position he was signed for and that he had played in his career.

    he still imo is a better striker than river but pard’s never see him that way.

  • 37 hibbit // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:10 PM

    if we lose this one Mc will lose a lot of support i think this team is a big gamble Mc needs a win to keep the fans on side

  • 38 lesh // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:10 PM

    Now then young Chancel

    Hope you’re on the mend.

    Don’t despair at Willo’s inclusion in the starting line-up – McC’s got no choice really as he’s hardly gonna risk Mbemba and Taylor in particular ahead of the Arsenal game.

    And, he’s putting Willo, Gouffran and others in the shop window so let’s hope they impress whoever’s watching them!

    If that line-up can’t beat Northampton then pity help us. I think that McC’ll have the lads better prepared and gee’d up than Carver ever could’ve done so (and my head’s on the block), tonight should be a formality….. I hope.

    Anyway, keep smiling bonny lad 🙂

  • 39 Slank // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:11 PM

    Gouffran is a strange choice unless McClaren has seen something that Carver and Pardew hadn’t.

    I’m reserving judgement as McClaren is getting the best out of Anita which Pardew and Carver never did.

  • 40 catchy in norway // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:11 PM

    THIS SHOULD BE A EASY WIN

  • 41 Our Toon // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:12 PM

    SITC

    It ensures Kemen will move to someone else when his contract runs out at the end of the season. Such a daft selection by McClaren, really disappointed!!

  • 42 toon kk // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:12 PM

    Lets hope Northampton don’t come out of the blocks to quickly or our static style will be exposed, with Aarons in our team should help though.

  • 43 lesh // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:12 PM

    Sing in the corner

    Don’t worry about Jail, he’s probably overslept!

    😉

  • 44 SPRINGY // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:14 PM

    kemen not even on the bench…maybe he’s picked up knock in training…..keepin him fit for part of a deal maybe?…thought he might of at least made the bench

  • 45 Our Toon // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:14 PM

    Hibbit

    If this side is incapable of beating the mighty Northampton then in all reality we don’t deserve to be in any competitions

  • 46 BeeGuy // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:14 PM

    Would one of you Geordies please run the radio through UStream so the rest of the world can hear the match?

  • 47 Slank // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:14 PM

    hibbit @ 37

    With the possible exception of Toney all the players (including the bench) are first team regulars.

    There are no U21 players.

  • 48 TacoFlavoredKisses ForMyBen-arfa // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:15 PM

    he has to play gouf the same way he played ober. Its for the suckers in france

  • 49 Nufc-83 // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:16 PM

    If anyone finds a link I will give them a 100

  • 50 toonbrother // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:16 PM

    No Colo
    Thank you lord
    Not sure about Gouffran and Lascelles
    Wouldve preferred to see wijnaldum and dummett

  • 51 Shadow_Shearer // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:16 PM

    Some how, I doubt it very much gouffy is playing as a holding midfielder. Looks more like a 4141 to me. Possibly 442.
    SM must have been impressed with perez, even if he’s not gonna start against arsenal, it looks like he will be part of SM plans

  • 52 WWSBRD // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:17 PM

    Aye fair point on Kemen surely if he was staying he would be on the bench?

  • 53 will die for the toon army // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:17 PM

    Where is Cisse? Perez is young he is young and fitter he can play at Arsenal.

    So Goufrann is staying at CM.

  • 59 toonbrother // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:20 PM

    @36 croftus5678
    completely agree with that

    Mclaren should be challenging the notion of gouffran as a midfielder which never made sense to begin with

    I hate it when new managers just run with the received wisdom of their predecessors . Especially when those predecessors were bottom of the barrel material like Pardew and carver

  • 60 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:21 PM

    Geordieboy

    Yeah could be that too.

  • 61 JP...from The Rock // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:21 PM

    I see Gouffran on the wing with Aarons on yhe otherside and Thauvin through thr middle.

  • 62 JAMSHA // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:21 PM

    not a single link 🙁

  • 63 El Sleeve // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:22 PM

    Kemen should’ve started or at least be on the bench.

    What other young players, apart from Forster, have we lost by not giving them a game?

  • 64 toonbrother // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:23 PM

    @57 geordieboy83
    You sure about that?
    If true I would LOVE to see that formation in action
    I’m rooting for DeJong to succeed as a goalscoring attacking midfielder a la nolan

  • 65 ronaldo aarons // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:23 PM

    Sutty at 33
    Think it’s far far too soon to label him ginger pardew. In the three league games, he’s hardly made a lot of changes to the team and the on,y player you can argue is out of position is Sissoko. At man utd, someone was going to be out position because of janmaat. As for the ‘senior’ players keeping out youngsters, I think that is harsh to say after three hard league games we’ve had to Southampton and away to Swansea and man utd. Aarons should have had more game time than obertan though that’s for sure.

  • 66 Terry // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:23 PM

  • 67 toonicle // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:24 PM

    Good team overall I suppose, but Kemen and Bigi can’t even make the bench against this lot? Not surprised if Kemen wants to leave…

  • 68 joseph123 // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:24 PM

    I listened to Paul Simpson’s pre match audio thing which was on nufc’s twitter. He said cisse was meant to start but he has got a sickness bug so isn’t in the side

  • 69 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:24 PM

    I know many of these players are not exactly favorites of ours, but it IS full of prem experience, and also has a good sprinkling of promising youth.

    I say this is a strong team, and should cope with Northants without problems. Strong bench too.

  • 70 Nufc-83 // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:26 PM

    Just listened to Simpson interview it’s thauvin and Aaron’s on the wings with Perez up top. Gouff must be in cm which is silly. Cisse has bug.

  • 71 partizanovec // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:26 PM

    it’s fourth tie club Terry, but still strong team I reckon…

  • 72 welshgeordie9 // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:27 PM

    Just a thought guys, if cisse is not on the bench and is replaced by Toney, does that mean he’s leaving.

    He has a sickness bug apparently (cisse)

  • 77 JDdubai // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:29 PM

    Gouffran played CM in UsA pre season, definitely in there tonight.

    The team that is out should win so cant blame Steve for that, and with Arsenal coming up it is right to rest some of the key players for that.

    Mitrovic, Colo, Saylor etc arent at the level where they should be playing 3 games in a week.

  • 84 SUTTY1978 // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:35 PM

    Rolando, you’re right it’s too early for a 100% conviction of him but I just cant see much of a change from Pardew being here, just more of the same, yield possession, try and hit on the counter and hope for the best.
    Making 9 changes so we put out a team that has never played together before is crazy.
    If this were a mid-week premier league game would you expect to see this many changes or be happy with the team he has put out? Thought not.

  • 85 Tsunki // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:35 PM

    Such negativity! I told you the subs bench ( Inc willo) would get a trot out to keep them warm for the league. I expect Perez and Haidara to be subbed pretty early for Dummett and maybe Toney who knows but it’s not a bad bench if all goes well or badly really. Can be switched around to plan b. If Steve has one that is.

  • 86 Tsunki // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:36 PM

  • 87 Terry // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:38 PM

    I know everyone or most think we are good enough to win tonight but I just think mcClaren knew from the start he wouldn’t play his strongest team possible so why say it

  • 88 Nufc-83 // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:39 PM

    Terry he says strongest taking into account Saturday’s game so there’s not much to argue against what he’s put out.

  • 89 JDdubai // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:40 PM

    Sutty

    We had Man U 3 days ago, we have Arsenal 3 days from now and we have Northampton today. Surely it makes sense to rotate the squad for this match given the games around it, especially considering we seem to have a few players not upto match fitness at the moment and the amount of running some did at the weekend.

    If this team cant win today then we are in real trouble. If we get through and get a PL team in the next round then i think we will see a full strength team for that match, for tonight it shouldnt be needed to progress.

  • 90 will die for the toon army // Aug 25, 2015 at 7:40 PM

    That means Goufrann is staying. He jst has to fight for his contract. Willo, Taylor, Goufrann and Obertan are part of the squad they jst have to fight for their contracts.

    Mcca changed:
    Perez to WF – It worked
    Goufrann to CM – Waiting to see
    Bigi to RB – This failed
    Sissoko to WF – Success.

    No way is Gouffran playing centre mid again!?!?!?!

    SO Steve either you think he is adept at playing there or you obviously couldn’t be bothered to watch performances towards the end of last season where you could see he was pathetic there. Either way shame on you if he is the central midfielder.

    Goal newcastle florian thauvin , good cross was said to be done by hairdryer, thauvin them heads the ball into the net

    appears there are no actual links for the match, best image for the match is soccer special on sky sports.

    My thinking is that this league cup round doesn’t have much highlights at all just a quick hours that will show goals

    He’s just an unprofessional idiot, his various antics off the pitch have shown that, plus him turning up for pre-season out of shape. A big time charlie now happy to pick up his wage for little to nothing in return. Get rid.

    Hopefully McClaren will do the right thing. He didn’t fancy him at Twente and I’m sure he’s done nothing to endear himself since Steve has been here. Talks about needing the right characters, well he’s definitely defective and not a very good footballer to boot

  • 191 SPRINGY // Aug 25, 2015 at 8:14 PM

    to the whingers:
    1. its not on tv bcause the league cup isnt as lucrative so they dont record whole games, just highlights
    2. why cant we listen to bbc radio newcastle outside the uk? for contractual reasons, cant play sport on the radio outside the UK
    so keep ur shirts on and find a good twitter update source. Or the BLOG!!!

    You all need to just relax, I thought this was a cup final for a minute with all the over the top reactions. Thauvin excellent start but he’s playing against a side in a lower league than what Arma plays against weekly.

    Tiote gave away pen and booked but hasn’t played properly since Jan. Give these lads time on the pitch that’s what they need.

    Yeah we really need to get our keepers kicking properly there was about 5 times Krul kicked it to a Man Utd player and they created a chance from it in the first half

    Judging by comments Perez , Thauvin , De Jong and Aarons playing well together but cant see how Gouffran and Tiote can really offer anything decent in midfield both either out of shape or cant be bothered being here anymore

  • 259 Jail for Ashley // Aug 25, 2015 at 8:44 PM

    Geordie Ant,
    Geordie Ant, you couldn’t have been listening to Newcastle Radio then unless the HTC has a DAB digital app, you can’t get it through tune in radio or radio player

    @JFA You’re right there…you can’t get it through a downloaded radio app like tune in…but there is an app called “FM Radio” on the HTC that I often listen to commentary on 95.4MHz.

    I know its against lower opposition, but Thuavin looks a proper footballer and everything Obertan isn’t .

    Mitrovic and Cisse are going to love playing with him on the wing .

    Also De Jong has looked impressive as well and he should be match sharp soon, so I hope he gets a run in the first team .

    Williamson is actually a decent 4th or 5th choice defender but should never be expected to be playing like 10 games in a row good to come in for injuries although might be decent with pace around him

    We could do with upgrading but I cant see us buying anymore players

    Yeah I would m8 although have Wijnaldum drop back alongside him when we are defending .

    The reason there were huge gaps in midfield against Man U is because Colback & Anita were sitting far too deep and we couldn’t get hold of the ball . Anita is our best DM at the moment so he would start for me .

    Giroud is great in the air and I think he has scored in the last 3 or 4 games in a row against us from crosses with headers so we really need to try something new against him !!

    Also stop giving away cheap free kicks as Arsenal always punish us !!

    you get the goal replays straight after they score…if we score again 😉

  • 401 SUTTY1978 // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:31 PM

    LR32, Taylor & Mbemba would be the best partnership for Arsenal.

  • 402 Lee Charnley Bunga Party // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:31 PM

    @bosamuelson

    We have been the only tie that has had no goals shown out of the premiership teams !! Wonder why?!

  • 403 Hail Wor Ashley // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:31 PM

    No way would I reinstate Janmaat straight back in to the PL starting XI.

    Been watching since gane started they’ve not shown our goals

  • 405 Take a Chancel on me // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:32 PM

    I agree Sutty

  • 406 IrishMagpie // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:32 PM

    @ 392

    Colo played as DM before and was pretty poor.

  • 407 toonking // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:32 PM

    bosa, i’m afraid we ourselves don’t have the goals showed, i’ve watched it throughtout the night and not once did a goal get shown

    Comentators calling toney bambi on ice

    Shola returns????

  • 409 toonbrother // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:33 PM

    @401 IrishMagpie
    When?

  • 410 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:35 PM

    Irish

    I think it might work better though if he has a partner. He can concentrate on putting well times tackles in with 2 cbs behind, and when he has the ball, he will have a dedent outlet close by if he needs a short option.

  • 411 bosamuelson // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:35 PM

    @Lee Charnley Bunga Party

    Seriously!! That is really petty!!!

  • 412 toonking // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:36 PM

    luton 1-1 stoke

  • 413 the ledge // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:36 PM

    If Percy had of been still in charge we would have lost tonight .I think player s are buying into Steve way of playing

  • 414 toonking // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:38 PM

    we might have been through to most 3rd round league cups during pardew era but from the stats i’ve seen of todays match we seem to put much more effort into them now and also have lots more attack.

  • 415 firebug666 // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:38 PM

    A comfortable win, but I would have expected nothing else.

  • 416 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:39 PM

    Good stuff. Relatively string twam did what it had to do, and you can’t knock a 4-1 league cup win after 9 changes, even if it was still a decent 11 on show.

  • 417 toon kk // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:39 PM

    Great result, we just have to do the same to Arsenal! Here’s hoping.

  • 418 will die for the toon army // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:39 PM

    ………………………… .Krul
    Janmaat…..Taylor…….Colo…….Dummett
    ………………….Sissoko…….Mbemba

  • 419 IrishMagpie // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:39 PM

    @ toonbrother

    A few years back, Pardew tried him there for a game or two and it didnt work out.

  • 420 toonbrother // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:40 PM

    had colo been on the pitch
    this wouldve ended 4-5 to northampton

  • 421 jesperfuglsang - capt'n awesome of the lemon crew // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:40 PM

    Did we do well? and did we come through injury free?

  • 422 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:40 PM

    Right. Take care,all. Nice to have a win for once, even against weaker opps. G’night.

  • 423 toon kk // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:41 PM

    Who was man of match?

  • 424 SPRINGY // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:41 PM

    great start for thauvin….good games by de jong..janmaat…williamson.. lascelle.. perez…haidara…steady with slow starts tiote and goofy…quiet by aarons

  • 425 ronaldo aarons // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:41 PM

    Celtic are out, hope were not in for van dijk in all honesty. Let him go to Southampton.

  • 426 Hail Wor Ashley // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:41 PM

    Carlisle at H will do for me.

  • 427 swemag // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:41 PM

    Awesome, I think we will win this cup easily.

  • 428 toonbrother // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:42 PM

    @414 IrishMagpie
    hmm i dont recall
    I think its worth taking another look
    He’s finished as a Defender;
    might as well try him out in centre mid

  • 429 SPRINGY // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:43 PM

    thauvin by all accounts toon kk

  • 430 toonking // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:44 PM

    might as well head off now, no video or radio commentry so diffult to really bring up much about the match itself.

    nite all

  • 431 SUTTY1978 // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:45 PM

    Man of the match – Toonbrother for convincing Mc to drop Colo!

  • 432 geordie157 // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:46 PM

    Celtic’s defence was awful tonight,still no evidence to support the van dijk hype. Rosenberg and Cardiff flop Berget caused them a lot of problems

  • 433 SUTTY1978 // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:48 PM

    swemag // Aug 25, 2015 at 9:41 PM

    Awesome, I think we will win this cup easily.

    One of the finest posts I’ve ever seen. That must be what its like to be a Celtic fan!
