Newcastle Defender – I Will Not Go And Weep In A Corner


Daryl Janmaat  was our Player of the Season, and he got 53% of the vote followed by Ayoze Perez with 18% and Jack Colback with 16%.

Daryl has been speaking to the Dutch press today, and for the second time in a year he has been left out of the Dutch squad for the upcoming Euro 2016 qualifiers.

Danny Blind is the new coach and he left Janmaat out of his preliminary squad, and maybe he had watched the Newcastle game at Swansea, when Daryl didn’t exactly have his best game against Jefferson Montero and was sent off.

That’s probably the main reason he has been left out of the 31-man preliminary roster for the tough games against Iceland and Turkey, but Vurnon Anita returned to the squad, having never been selected since he joined Newcastle over three years ago from Ajax.

Daryl Janmaat has been interviewed in De Telegraaf:

“It is clear that I am not included and such pre-selection is not there for nothing.” “Of course I am disappointed about that, that speaks for itself.”

“There is a new coach with a new vision and he has his own preferences. Apparently I’m not one of them.”

“It’s not up to me about leaving me out.” “The new guy (Kenny Tate of Ajax) will have earned it.” “It would be disrespectful to him to say otherwise.”

“I will again have to fight back. I can sit and weep in a corner, but I will now focus completely on Newcastle United.”

“Last year I had a good season and I was “Player of the Year”. “The only thing I can do is to hold that same level.” “Whether that is enough, I do not know. I cannot see into the head of the coach.”

Kenny Tete is the man who has replaced Daryl and over the last two seasons the 19 year-old has played only 11 times for Ajax.

As we said the new coach probably saw highlights of the game at Swansea,  when Daryl didn’t look good, but hey –  these things happen.

It’s now up to Daryl – as he says – to fight his way back – but he may be on the bench on Saturday against Arsenal at home.

We have an inkling that Steve may keep an unchanged defense against Arsenal,  after they did so well to keep a clean sheet at Old Trafford.

Here’s the top five in our Player of the Season poll.

    I feel sorry for De Jong as circumstances have dealt him a bum hand.

    In his prolonged absence Perez has deservedly put himself in the first team frame.

    Possibly because of doubts about De Jong’s future fitness it possibly contributed to the determination by the club to buy Gini who deservedly now anchors central midfield.

    It’s a difficult situation for De Jong and a headache for McClaren but for us fans it is reassuring to know we have two very gifted players to occupy almost the same spot, but alas not together !

    Agree Slank.

    I would just say that whilst having very similar roles – I think they could be squeezed into the same team with a change in formation as they have similar but distinct positions. Gini is a (attacking) midfielder – always has been and always will be – whereas Siem has always played slightly further forward more like a false striker. Whilst in a current formation this means they are both after the number 10 role, if we shifted to a 4-4-1-1 it is not beyond the realms to fit them both in with Gini playing alongside a defensive midfielder and Siem playing closer to the striker.

    If we get Raphael Guerriero and Van Dijk, I think we’ll have a good season. We’d just need a right back and centre forward in january

    now we have good options going forward—-
    AM—Wijnaldum,De Jong,Perez can play there
    WG—Thauvin,Sissoko,Aarons,Perez can play there,plus Obertan whom i would sell 😀
    ST—Mitrovic,Cisse,Perez also 😀
    Perez can play everywhere…for Arsenal I would put this
    ………….anita……..colback………….
    thauvin….wijnaldum…….perez
    ………….mitrovic………………………
    …………………………………………..
    and then put there Sissoko and he will destroy them when they will have tired legs…

    Can’t see Janmaat being left out on saturday. Hes our only right back… Hes had a handful of bad games in 40 odd appearances and was player of the year last year… Him and thauvin looked like the clicked on wed…
    Looking forward to the Arsenal game! I didn’t look forward to any games last year so credit to the club im optimistic again!

    You could say Janmaat hasn’t had the best of starts to the season but dropping him out of the squad completely for a 19 year old with 11 first team games seems a bit drastic – you would have thought there was room for both? At least he can’t get injured 🙂
    I was surprised but pleased for Anita about his inclusion in the squad.

    @beermonkey – it was a great defensive display but we played deep and conceded alot of possession. A great away performance but at home to an out of form Arsenal missing their 2 cb’s i think we need to attack.
    Would see thauvin and possibly sissoko come back in too no doubt

    WE are getting together a decent squad, so if certain players get left out they have to know it is always because they are playing Pony, that is why i cant understand the fascination with this Colback and Anita Cemented in the middle every fricken game, our win record with this combo is a shocka.

    the back line I would keep the same thauvin with a goal and 2 assists was it tues night has staked a claim to be included
    arsenal didn’t concede with there defence against Liverpool
    if we keep it tight and draw next up we have west ham Watford shef wed before we face Chelsea we can be a bit more adventurous with matches before Chelsea

    What a dignified comment by Janmaat, shows the maturity and professionalism of the lad, and his comment with regards to his replacement speak volumes about his character.
    Hasn’t as yet found his form this season, hopefully being left out of the Netherlands squad will give him an extra kick-on this Saturday, just to prove a point.

    And it looks as though Jason Denayer’s available as a young CB. Probably too young for us though – it’s experience we need there.

    hibbit @18 – According to BBC Newcastle he is starting to train on the grass – but it will be touch and go for Saturday. I think he’ll probably be on the bench so he doesn’t have to play the whole game but we can use him as a good impact sub.

    Nolan and Allardyce have the same agent
    Kevin has followed Fat Sam around the prem for most of his career . He’s a bit screwed now that Sam has moved into punditry .
    If hippoheid gets another managing gig expect Nolan to be with him in short order.
    ps
    Andy Carroll has the same agent

    I’m still not convinced by Janmaat’s performance to be honest.The lad is in poor form and is not convincing in defending .He cost us massive points against southampton and Swansea.You have to wonder why he left out of the Dutch squad too.McLaren should still play the same back four that played against man utd.
    Because they all played well and rarely made a mistake or panicked.I have great doubts as to how some rate him as world class RB??

    Thauvin and Janmaat played well together and looked a good partnership so where does that leave Sissoko? Try him in the middle again where he has largely under performed for us…certainly isn’t going to be getting in the CAM spot and won’t be happy on the bench, nor will the press

    Our proper first team when everyone is firing

    Krul

    Janmaat
    Taylor
    Mbemba
    Haidara

    Sissoko
    Wijnaldum

    Thauvin
    De.Jong
    Perez

    Mitrovic

    Play the detested 4231 formation but take out the limited defensive midfielders who can only pass sideways and replace with box to box machines who offer more.

    Defensive midfielders only became fashionable when Chelsea started the ball rolling, they had one and he was there so that they could release their fullbacks. It worked but now it seems to have increased to two for some reason, that works if one is a deep laying playmaker (which we dont have), it doesnt work if they are both weak in the tackle and have a limited passing range (like ours).
    I remember Pardew trying to take this one stage further by playing three def midfielders, the result was a 6-0 home defeat to Liverpool.

    Lets get rid of defensive midfielders all together. Lets face it, its basically just a name given to midfielders who arent very good!

    Signing 4 players just isn’t enough. 6 players would be decent. We’d still need another 3 in January.

    Mature words from Janmaat. I would like him back in at RB simply because he’s our specialist RB and we desperately need to cease putting square pegs in round holes ala Pardew.

    Mbemba is a CB and we don’t want him ruined before he hits his stride by being used as a utility player. He needs to be playing there, if Colocinni and Taylor cement the partnership then fair enough he must wait for his chance.

    Although ideally I’d like to see Mbemba start ahead of Colocinni. One good game doesn’t make up for 2 years of little commitment and shoddy captaincy.

    Ww, yes. They’re allowed to get away with being very limited footballers because they “break up play”. Colback is a prime example.

    We are crying out for s deep lying playmaker. We need that quality to unlock organised and tight defences and currently we don’t have it. Anita or Colback alongside one, can’t play both if we want a complete side.

    A great example of someone who plays in that position but is not a defensive midfielder is Xabi Alonso. His job isnt to break up play, it’s to move the team up the pitch, switch play, start attacks, similar with Pirlo. As soon as someone is officially classified as DM, it’s a stamp that says, i cant pass or shoot, but i might be able to get a foot to the ball when the opposition have it.
    Just trying to stimulate some debate!
