Saturday brings reports that Newcastle United have made an approach for a striker dubbed the ‘New Robin van Persie’, over in France. Remi Oudin has scored 12 times for Reims…
After Wijnaldum signed & our weekly game of 5-a-side, a Dutch colleague said Newcastle United now have more Dutch players than the average Eredivisie club.
Louis Van Gaal comfirms Robin Van Persie definitely misses the Newcastle clash and that he has fitness concerns about 4 others.
Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal has made clear his intentions today against Newcastle, with a front six that includes not a single defensive player.
One of the hardest trips but a massive lift for Alan Pardew with the news that Moyes’ best 2 players miss Manchester United v Newcastle United.
One of the reasons I like Pardew is as well as what he’s achieved on the pitch, just like Sir Bobby and Keegan before him, he tells the truth on camera.
If Arsenal win then we could go five points clear of the blues with four matches to play, Chelsea win and we beat Stoke…only two points behind third with a game in hand!
Just to show as well that the lack of class wasn’t just confined to Van Persie. Jack Wilshere, writing on Twitter, said: “[Newcastle] can’t say we didn’t deserve it! Why is Tim Krul crying as well?
I fancy the odd change to Newcastle’s formation and can see Cissé dropping to the bench with Ben Arfa starting in some kind of different formation. Personally I’d go the whole hog and have the two Dembas AND Ben Arfa going for it.
Robin Van Persie has a chance of beating Alan Shearer’s record number of goals in a calendar year.
Shearer sits top with 36 with Van Persie left with 2 matches to close the two goal gap, it will take more than that though to rival Shearer overall.
