Is It True Anita’s Even Behind Nile Ranger In Pardew’s Plans?

8 years ago

A lot of things have puzzled me this season but I suppose as a Newcastle fan that isn’t anything new.

While we have had other problems, I think some fans have gone overboard when it comes to Alan Pardew’s team selections and tactics.

However, I must admit in recent times wondering just what Vurnon Anita has done wrong?

I thought he settled in pretty well in difficult circumstances and was actually one of our better players prior to the French influx in January.

Since then he’s hardly had a sniff apart from when Alan Pardew has had to rest players or had injuries and ineligible players for the European matches.

Leaving the Dutchman out of the first eleven is one thing but in our last two away matches I just can’t get my head around the manager putting on Dan Gosling rather than Vurnon Anita.

Gosling has been a disastrous signing and whatever he might have had to offer, appears to have been eradicated by the bad injury he had when he signed.

Gosling offers absolutely nothing and so the writing must be on the wall for our so called purple signing of last summer.

When you see Gosling picked ahead of you then you know you have problems.
