Game On! Everton v Newcastle

Game On at Goodison!
Premier League action returns once again shortly when Newcastle travel to Goodison Park to take on David Moyes’ Everton men.

It’s going to be a toughie and Newcastle will have to play at a level we haven’t reached thus far this season if we are to return to Tyneside with any points to show for our effort. I don’t hold out much hope anyway…

It also seems that Everton are riled up by Alan Pardew for some reason. They seem to believe he has disrespected them and several of their players, headed by Phil Jagielka, have come out and said that they are eager to set the record straight this evening. Just as long as Marouane Fellaini’s elbow hasn’t heard about it we should be able to deal with it.

The issue is over these words said by Alan Pardew last season: β€œForget about Everton and Aston Villa, we have put ourselves in a similar position to Arsenal. The one security I have is that Mike Ashley is a difficult seller. He is not going to let someone go for Β£7m, he is going to want top, top money.”

Now maybe I’m just being flippant but I don’t really see anything wrong with that. Or maybe Everton see themselves as being in a similar position to Arsenal themselves? I don;t know, either way it’s just, well, silly…

Anyway, back to the match. If you haven;t already done so you can read my perfectly crafted match preview which details injury news, previous history between the two team, some stats and a stab at team selection from yours truly.

Which just about wraps this up really. Newcastle will need to up their game considerably if they are to stand any hope of repeating last season and it needs to start as soon as possible. Will it be tonight though is the question?

As ever, team news will be added below as and when it becomes available.

Howay the lads!

  1. Sure typing a short spiel about how you are not going to bite, must in fact be considered a bite πŸ˜† πŸ˜†


  2. Bloody Hell Troy (THIS IS A GOVERNMENT HEALTH WARNING. THIS POSTER IS LIABLE TO TAKE HISSY FITS) Stavers is still livid at his brother πŸ˜† πŸ˜† Only family could drive you that mad I suppose πŸ˜‰


  3. JJ I too questioned a few things like Perch and Anita, but he must have thought that playing Anita in his favoured MF place would be better, as for Perch at RB I think Jabba has to take the blame for that if Pards thinks Perch is his best choice as a back up RB.
    As for Marv he must have had faith in playing Marv because normally he looks a decent player, so I just presume he was having a shocker,
    Yeah I see how gifted you are but you’ll need to take that up with God for giving you faulty gifts πŸ˜‰



    As Borism is printing texts I thought it only fair to print the text I’ve just sent him;

    My god or is it God with a cap G? You don’t half make a **** of yourself on this blog. Woo hoo hoo hoo:-) πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚


  5. Aussie …if you are that desperate to claim those as bites we’ll let you have them out of pity πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜†


  6. Richie yeah he is a bit desperate πŸ˜† but don’t be too hard on him imagine having to make up things just to try to get a bite to then find out that the bait didn’t work and you just end up looking like a bit of a story telling wombat.
