Newcastle Second Most Difficult Team To Beat In Premier League

It seems that West Ham may have some of their top players potentially missing for the game against Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon at Upton Park.

Sam Allardyce – injuries for West Ham

Sam has a number of his players who will probably not make the game against the Magpies, and he has also confessed that at the moment he thinks Newcastle are the most difficult team to beat of any team in the Premier League.

This is what big Sam has said today at his press conference:

“We have got Stuart Downing and Chieck Kouyate training today, so I think the only other possibility will be Mark Noble, who came off injured last Saturday, but obviously the rest will not be available I don’t think.¨

“Plus of course we’ve lost Winston Reid on a suspension this weekend.”  “It’s not good at this particular time of the year”

“It’s not what we want but we’ve got to try and manage the situation by getting the result on Saturday that we should’ve got against Everton but failed to do so.”

“I think that Newcastle are the most difficult team to beat in the Premier League, apart from Chelsea, on the form they have shown at this moment in time.¨

“So it will be a massively big game for us.”

The other players who are injured ate their two strikers – Enner Valencia with a knock and Diafra Sakho with a back injury – but somehow we think these two lads will be playing. Alex Song is also a doubt with a knee injury.

West Ham have six injures on Physioroom.com and Newcastle have a massive twelve.

We are still to hear from Alan Pardew on which players could be back for the game at Upton Park – and it’s interesting Sam thinks Newcastle are currently the most difficult side to beat in the Premier League, apart from Chelsea – who we will meet at home a week on Saturday.

    Posted by tequilamag earlier and trending everywhere but on the blog. Uefa confirms Rangers and Newcastle will never be allowed to compete in Europe together, even if one is in the Champions’ League and the other is in the Europa League. Edwards reckons it will cause “fury on Tyneside.” I think it will lead to more “so what?” shrugging.

    Could be a very different game against Hammers.

    Everyone we’ve played on this run is generally pretty decent in possession. I know QPR are struggling but they can still zip the ball around when they want.

    With teams like that, we’ve sat back, soaked up the pressure and countered largely with Socks being a bettering ram but I think West Ham play very much the same.

    I dont think the game will be decided by the strikers. It’ll be the midfield battle. We’re both capable of scrapping in the middle so It may be best to try and keep a bit of possession this time round.

    Still think our wingers can trouble their full backs. I see that as West Hams weakness. Either that or try and get at Song, he’ll get himself sent off if he gets frustrated.

    Leap frog is a manufacturer of childrens electronic toys so unless you require a “pretend” laptop I’d steer well clear.

    Obviously the person responsible for recommending them to your good self found it highly amusing to try and “dupe” you.

    Sony or Packard Bell are always ok for me. With that price range you should be able to get a decent one just make sure it’s got sufficient storage as this is one of the main causes of slow performance. 4-8 gb of ram should do the trick and these usually come with a fair sized hard drive ranging from 200-600gb.

    I’d suggest looking after 12PM tonight or first thing in the morning as it’s black Friday tomorrow mate. A craze from the states where most big shops have half price electricals ie asda, curry’s, sainsburys and loads more.

    Some really good deals to be had but you’ve gotta be quick. Well worth a gander though.

    I think we look on the bright side. He’ll probably try to sell up again. We’ll finally be rid.

    Not really sure what to think regarding this Rangers Europe thing.
    It’s not going to effect us for a couple of years as I can’t see Rangers being in Europe for another couple years.

    Is this conformation Ashley’s doesn’t want a cup win or Europe in any capacity?

    Ashley did say he wouldn’t sell us for another couple seasons which would be around the time Rangers could be back in Europe via SPL. I’ve said a while I can’t see Ashley selling us to buy Rangers unless there’s something I’m missing.

    Are the advertising rights in Europe up for review? What about tv money in SPL etc?

    I suppose SD could sponsor Rangers kit, same colours etc.

    with regards to this europe situation i dont think we are the club who should be worried

    liverpool had done nothing remarkable before their second place season and they’re ranked at 42

    tottenham have been qualifying for the europa league for the past few years and they are 18th

    celtic have qualified for the champions league for as long as i can remember. they are 51 due to the poor quality of the scottish league

    if we are performing well enough to qualify for either of the european leagues our ranking will be higher than rangers and we will be allowed to participate at their expense
