Newcastle United v West Ham United

Recommended Posts

So time to bring some CT match thread starting magic to our relegation battle.

 

Two new signings are apparently straight in according to local journos so my team for Saturday will be...

 

Elliott

 

Janmaat. Mbemba Coloccini. Dummett*

 

Sissoko Shelvey Wijnaldum Saivet

 

De Jong*

 

Mitrovic

 

 

* Could Colback do better than Dummett at LB

 

* Assuming Perez needs a rest

Saivet hasn't been playing as a left winger, he's been played centrally.

Neither Shelvey nor Wijnaldum are defensive midfielders, so your centre is pretty flimsy there.

 

Elliott

Janmaat Memba Colo Dummett

Colback/Tiote/Anita

Sissoko Shelvey Wijnaldum

Mitrovic

The defensive midfielder should be given the job of neutralising Payet.

I can see this being a difficult game for us with West Ham pushing for a Champions League spot & ourselves desperate for 3 points with both teams wanting a win it'll probably be a 1-1 draw

First of all you don't have Saivet in your line up and the word up here (could be shit) is that he'll start.

 

As for whether he plays out wide, the article you pasted and bolded suggests he will solve our out wide position ???

 

. They are strong out-wide—increasingly so with the signing of Henri Saivet—

It does, but I posted it for the Shelvey discussion. Saivet has (and I can't believe I'm having to say this again) player predominantly in the centre.

 

Re him not being in my starting line up, I know, it was deliberate. I'm of the opinion it might take him longer to settle into the league than Shelvey.

Is Aarons fit yet? If so I would go...

 

Elliott
Janmaat Mbemba Colo Dummett
Tiote/Anita Shelvey
Sissoko Wijnaldum Aarons
Mitrovic
If Aarons is still injured just keep Perez there, or maybe give De Jong a go?

"The word up here" :lol:

 

You won't get this down South. But if I step out my back door and put my ear to the ground.... NUFC team news round the clock.

:lol:

 

So you find an article, find a section you want to hammer home, bold it, but then argue against it?

 

Fair enough :lol:

 

You do realise I'm coming for you as soon as he turns up on the left wing. ;)

I'd like to see de Jong come in for Perez as well. As others have said he's looked shot recently and I thought de Jong was unlucky to be dropped. He had enough quality touches in the couple of games he played to suggest there's a quality player there if he can get a run of games. He is slow but you can get away with that in his position if you're good enough. He also seemed to have a good influence on the team - we played well those couple of games. With him, shelvey, sissoko and wijnaldum there should be a canny bit of quality on the ball there, if admittedly not a lot of pace. No idea what saivet does so it'll be interesting to see where he fits in. It will be a hard game - 2-2

Problem is those 2-3 quality touches are the sum total of the extent of his involvement in those games.

Hey, Mr Potatohead, how am I arguing against it? Shelvey could be key to Newcastle, that's e point of the article. Saivet gets a line, if that, and it's not accurate.

How am I to know that if you paste an article and bold it, it's not accurate.

 

I can see now why you never got the board admin gig. ;)

Wot does it mean Mr. Fish,, some sort of angle?

It means CT is deliberately missing the point.

 

Probably because he's a contrarian, possibly because he's stupid.

More likely because you highlighted it in bold ;)

Did I highlight the throw away line about Saivet in bold? Or did I highlight the 2 paragraphs that spoke specifically about Shelvey, within which there was a throwaway line about Saivet?

I will have to bear in mind you're a thick fucker who likes to be contrary, then cover your idiocy with misplaced condescension. :good:
