Crystal Palace v Newcastle game preview

Wednesday will see us traveling to Selhurst Park to face our old manager Alan Pardew.
Pards departed last month after four-years in charge at St James’ Park and has enjoyed a successful start in the Selhurst Park hotseat, winning three out of four games.
Talking about the game he said, “I’m not expecting or hoping for any reaction, We had some great times together. It was not so great the last year, but on the whole my experience there was great”.
“I thought I did a good job and walked out with my head held high, and so I’m looking forward to the game.
“I’ve still got all my staff there and my players, and they’re close to my heart.
“It will be strange because after four years after living every part of that football club and that city, good and bad, it’s emotional.
“It will be a slightly different game for me.”

Here’s hoping it is a different game for him and he will be smarting at his old team leaving Selhurst Park with all 3 points in the bag.
Newcastle have no fresh injury worries following our 1-1 draw against Stoke City on Sunday.
Midfielder Cheick Tiote was part of the Ivory Coast squad that claimed AFCON glory on Sunday, but is unlikely to feature having not appeared during the knockout stages of the tournament due to an ankle injury
Siem de Jong (thigh) and Rolando Aarons (hamstring) are targeting returns later in the month, while Rob Elliot (thigh), Steven Taylor (Achilles) and Ryan Taylor (knee) also remain on the sidelines.

Crystal Palace will assess the fitness of Scott Dann after the centre-back went off with a head injury during Saturday’s 1-0 win at Leicester City, although Pardew offered warm praise for Brede Hangeland after he replaced the former Blackburn Rovers player at the King Power Stadium.
On-loan Arsenal forward Yaya Sanogo is pushing for a start having replaced Jordon Mutch at the break last time out. Captain Mile Jedinak remains a major doubt with an ankle problem.
Marouane Chamakh is set to return from a broken nose and Yannick Bolasie could offer a fresh boost to Palace’s attacking options after he helped the Democratic Republic of Congo finish third at the Africa Cup of Nations.

  2. Kim – what a bell end!!. Fat Sam must be laughing his back off at that bite πŸ˜†
    I have to be honest, I’ve never been a fan of LVG – but then I’ve never been a fan of Man U either, so him going there was a good combo for me πŸ˜› πŸ˜†

  3. Sharpy, He is seriously riled isn’t he? way too sensitive to survive in this league if he carries on like that. Manure fans must be cringing at that little show. 😳

  4. Kim – can you imagine the look on the face of the person he told to print them off πŸ˜• ‘are you sure that’s a good idea boss ❓
    Did LVG honestly think the media in that room were going to sit there and be ‘educated’ πŸ˜†
    I hope Fat Sam provides the next instalment though πŸ˜†

  5. Sharpy – that is the team Carver will play, in part because Sammi has a knock.
    LDJ or Riv?- Shola’s better than both together!
