Game On! Newcastle v Crystal Palace

Game On at SJP
Game On at SJP
Good day everyone and welcome to this article which will take us through the visit of Crystal Palace this afternoon.

Alan Pardew serves the second of his three game stadium ban so it will be John Carver who is tasked with trying to get us a victory following the disappointing defeat to Fulham last weekend.

For Palace it’s a second consecutive away fixture in the North-East following their 0-0 draw at Sunderland last weekend. Currently perched just above the drop zone Tony Pulis will be looking for a similar result or perhaps even better this time around as he attempts to keep his side clear of relegation.

Early injury news, a history of the fixture detailing the head-to-head record with a few facts and stats thrown in can be found in the match preview which is online here.

The game, as with all Saturday 3pm kick-offs, is not being broadcast live here in the UK although some overseas channels have the game listed for transmission so those not at the game will be relying on streams to watch the game. Have a look in the ‘comments’ below because there is usually a few links to watch the match posted in there somewhere.

Team news will be published below as soon as I can possibly get round to it.

On the surface this should be a home banker but it never works out that way with United. Take no notice of league positions as they don’t really matter. Palace and Pulis will make a game of this and we’ll have to be at our best to beat them.

Howay the lads!

  1. Icedog, Lukaku must be under 25, for such a brilliant all-round striker 15 mill would be a good bit of business. I’ve always liked the bloke, and he has proven himself now in the EPL if you ask me. A real handful..


  2. mm, ice, I would be over the moon if we got Lukaku like , but I don’t think he’s even on Pards let alone Jabbas radar. ๐Ÿ™


  3. Lukaku stats and he is only 20yrs old

    Anderlecht 73 apps -33goals
    Chelsea 10apps- 0 goals
    west brom 35apps-17 goals
    Everton 22apps-11goals

    Belgium seniors 27 apps – 5 goals


  4. Arsenal full-back Carl Jenkinson will be sent out on loan to either Newcastle United or West Ham United next season in order to gain some valuable game time.

    FULL STORY Sunday Mirror


  5. Wonder if the fact Pards and Jose have a mutual love in will help get Lukaku to the TOON or is that wishful thinking on my part ๐Ÿ˜‰


  6. Jabba’s such a bloody cheap skate it wouldn’t surprise me if every player was loaned in next season.


  7. Can just imagine fattys reaction to Pardews request for ยฃ17M for Lukaku ๐Ÿ˜›
    Probably wet himself laughing ๐Ÿ˜†
    nee chance that one happening imho
