Newcastle United Calendar Boys
I was tidying up (just for a change) in my son’s bedroom this morning and his Newcastle United calendar caught my eye.
He’d managed to turn it to October without me having to do it for him and I had a chuckle, Newcastle United’s Mr.October was none other than Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa.

How ironic eh, the club get rid of a player who they put in their own calendar, then I had a flick through the other months;
February – Loic Remy
March – Fabricio Coloccini
April – Hatem Ben Arfa
May – Yohan Cabaye
June – Papiss Cisse
July – Vurnon Anita
August – Moussa Sissoko
September – Steven Taylor
October – Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa
November – Mathieu Debuchy
December – Tim Krul
I might be wrong but the idea of something like this calendar is surely to pick the dozen players who sell the club the best and who are basically the 12 best players in your squad….?
So by my reckoning Newcastle United have managed to come up with;
Gone – Remy, Ben Arfa, Cabaye, Mapou, Debuchy
Not In First Team – Anita, Taylor
Injured – Santon
In The Team – Coloccini, Cisse, Sissoko, Krul
So out of the 12 chosen during last season to represent the club, you are left with less than half a team still getting a game.
I can’t wait to see who is included in the 2015 calendar – Cheick Tiote for Mr.January?
