Haris in the hole – Game On! Liverpool v Newcastle

This is Anfield! It's also a dump!
Welcome one and all to the ‘Game On’ article which will take up through every twist and turn of the match this evening as Newcastle take on Liverpool at Anfield.

Haris Vuckic is handed a start and will play just behind lone striker Demba Ba which may come as a surprise to some who expected to see Hatem Ben Arfa start the match after an impressive scoring cameo against Bolton at the weekend. Other than that, Newcastle are unchanged. Ryan Taylor retains his place and even though Davide Santon is fit to return he must make do with a space on the bench.

For Liverpool it’s an ex-Newcastle forward line as Craig Bellamy is paired with Andy Carroll in the absence of Luis Suarez who sits out the match courtesy of a one game suspension for his contemptuous hand gesture at Craven Cottage a few weeks back. Steven Gerrard takes a place on the bench while another former Mag, Jose Enrique, starts.

  1. Out me ears. Took 3 years and 14 days to get a pots worth, then another 17 months to mature after infusion with cyanide, cinnamon and folic acid (for the pregnat ladies). Glad you approve. I’m thinking of marketing it – Manufactureres Price £42 per ounce. Need to get a backer first though. Reckon Duncan Bannatyne will go for it? I reckon asking for £100k in return for 30% shares and a bag of nail clippings should do it? 😛
