It sems that most of the (foreign?) Toon Army always wanted an immediate success and or hoping that the new players that any Toon managers brought in have to be immediately showing good.
I have read some crazy discussion in one blog about who is the best between Owen and Oba. The discussion is getting ridiculous about which player that should have been released in January transfer window. Imho, none of the curent Newcastle United player should have been transfer listed, as I think we should wait for a while and especially for the new boys, let them adopted new environment and style of play.
About the Toon Double-O, we have the best out of them in their own style. None is better than the other, what the best out of them is we have variations, and some depth in our squad.
For today’ game, the official site announce that some of our players are still out. Shola Ameobi (groin), Stephen Carr (hamstring), Peter Ramage (knee), Celestine Babayaro (hamstring) and Damien Duff (ankle) remain sidelined.
Meanwhile, the Evertonians are without midfield duo Tim Cahill and Thomas Gravesen but are hopeful that striker Andy Johnson will be fit to return from a groin problem which saw him miss the UEFA Cup victory over FC Metalist Kharkiv on Thursday.
My prediction for today’ match team squad is below:
