Major Newcastle News Stories – 17th September – 2007

Some good quotes today from Sam Allardyce, James Milner and Alan Shearer.

Alan Shearer talks about Michael Owen’s come-back and thinks Michael is as good as he ever was.

Sam talks about the injury situation with Joey Barton and that it will still be another 3-4 weeks for his recovery.

Tonight of course is our game with Derby County, who have conceded 15 goals in their first 5 games, including a 6-0 loss to Liverpool at Anfield last time out. It will not be easy for Newcastle but a win will take us up to 4th place. The game is broadcast live on Setanta Sports in most countries around the world.

    I must admit I was wrong about needing a new striker as cover, I was forgetting about Steve Harper!!

    The more i think abour our lineup 2night, the more i think Big Sam doesnt like taking chances on players who arent 100%. So i think Enrique and Viduka will make the bench at best. I would like to see Martins and Owen up front but i think he’ll start Ameobi with one of the two. A midfield of Milner, Faye, Smith, and Geremi. With Nzogbia, Rozenthal, Cacapa, and Beye forming our back line. I also think he will stick with Harper and wait til the carling cup tie at the Emirates to bring Given back in and depending on his performance, he will become our #1 again. I’m going out 2night to watch the match and hoping for a good performance from the lads so i can start my birthday off in the best way possible!
