Game On! Everton v Newcastle

Game On at Goodison!
Game On at Goodison!
Welcome one and all to this ‘Game On’ article which will take us through every twist and turn of our trip to Everton this evening.

A Monday evening kick-off and a live broadcast on Sky will ensure that watching the match is more accessible to many so putting on a decent showing is a must.

However Everton are not an easy side to beat. They remain the only unbeaten side in the Premier League this term and haven’t lost at Goodison Park in 2013. They’ve not conceded a goal at home since March with West Ham, Fulham, QPR, Manchester City, Stoke City, West Brom and Chelsea all visiting the blue half of Merseyside and failing to find the back of the Everton net. It’s a tough ask for sure.

United will have to be at their best if they are to trouble the home side. A raft of first team players are set to return to the side (team news will be added in below as and when it becomes available!) after beating Leeds, but with the greatest of respect Leeds weren’t exactly a test and were comfortably beaten. The defeat to Hull still sits in the memory and it’s up to the players to banish that.

As mentioned earlier, the match is being shown live here in the UK and, of course, overseas so finding a stream shouldn’t prove to be too much of an issue. If you fancy helping out though then please, by all means, feel free to leave a link to any streams in the ‘comments’ section below.

That’s just about it as there is no need to blather on any longer. Will United hammer the Toffees? Or will we come unstuck at Goodison?

Howay the lads!

  1. I like Geordietwo, he’s probably the only polite member of the blog. He also keeps telling me I make good posts, there’s no better way to a woman’s heart and all that 😀 😆

    There seems to be a myth that Ben Arfa is and always has been a number 10 he has never played that role for any of his clubs (Maybe the odd game here and there). I dont know the reason for it but he is a winger/inside forward and always has been.

    Now would he be more effective in the middle i dont know he would be outnumbered far more often than he currently gets and he is a selfish prick which (what i think) is the main reason he is not a real number 10.

    He is class on his day but does he hurt the team defensively and if so should he be dropped because of it?
