Game On! West Ham v Newcastle

Game On at Upton Park
Game On at Upton Park
Good afternoon and welcome to this ‘Game On’ article which will take us through our game with West ham today.

Our recent results have not been great but neither have those of our opponents today. They do however have the luxury of tasting victory in 2014 which is something still awaiting the Magpies.

Newcastle have all the tools needed to win this game today but once again it depends on which side turns up for us today. Will it be the side which done so well and was perhaps unfortunately beaten by Manchester City last weekend? Or will it be the side lacking in ideas that we saw against West Brom and Cardiff? We’ll soon see I guess…

For more background on the match why not check out the match preview? It features news of injury and suspension for both sides, a history of the fixture and some stats and facts to tickle your footballing taste buds. Official team news will be posted at the bottom of this article after 2pm.

Being a regulation 3pm kick-off means that there is no live TV coverage here in the UK although there are some overseas channels showing the game so hopefully a stream can be found for you all somewhere. If you do find one then please share it by leaving a link in the ‘comments’ section below.

And that is just about it. Sorry it’s a short one. I had to write it quickly before I set off for work this morning. Then again the bulk of the story is waiting to be written. The question is, will this particular story have a happy ending?

Howay the lads!

    French media suggesting Remy Cabella told reporters he can’t answer questions about #nufc after directive from his manager #montpellier



  2. Was pleased with the lineup.

    So glad to see we played five in midfield.

    Can only imagine Pardew wanted Shola on for more height to deal with Carroll from set pieces. But if that’s the reason, we really need a better option than Shola.

    Still think a quality no.10 and a quality creative wide man would take pur squad to another level.

    Obviously a replacement for Colo when he leaves too.

    Pardew is definitely a better manager than Allardyce. I’ll give him that much. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
