Major Newcastle News Stories – 15th September – 2007

The main news this morning is that the Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce has been talking to the media on lots of different topics and as usually he has some interesting things to say.

He acknowledges that with the strong squad he has it’s going to be difficult for him to keep everybody happy.

But there again that’s one of the managers major jobs with a successful team because by definition they usually have a strong squad with competition for places.

    I just realised that Arsenal have the upper hand in our carling cup clash in a number of ways.

    1. they have a 2day rest compared to our one day

    2. their match prior to the 25th is at home so there is no travel for them

    3. they play an easy team like Drby before so they will win & go into the game high on confidence, whereas we play West Ham, coincidently the ONLY team to have ever beaten Arsenal at their home turf.

    4. confidence will also be high as they are likely to be top of the league come the 25th

    5. The match is at The Emirates, which is a massive drawback to us in itself.

    getting slightly worried, what does everyone else think?

    Dragoner, if Arsene W is true to form, most of the CC squad he will put out will have had a four-to-five month rest since such an important game. If he puts out the team that beat Spurs today I’ll eat my hat! With any luck the fact that we have a great 22 man squad will mean we can put out a better team than them and play that much harder. I reckon we can send out an eleven the majority of whom want to prove their first-team worth. But then I’m an eternal optimist!

    JoshI, I think it’d only be right to add Stevie Harper as well – eight players each side of BSA and our starting squad every game!

    Harper is a smashing goalkeeper – the last of a breed of a player prepared to do their bit for their home town club at the cost of personal fame and glory. There would always be a place for him in my squad.
