Welcome Lilywhites! Newcastle United v Preston North End match preview.

Preston North End: A proud history.
Preston North End: A proud history.
A warm Geordie welcome awaits the visit of the Lancashire lads as Newcastle take on Preston at St James’ Park for a somewhat rare Saturday 3pm kick off. Newcastle fans will be hopeful of another strong performance straight after Wednesday’s 4-1 win over Coventry.

After watching The Toon hammer in 9 goals in the last 2 home games, Preston manager Darren Ferguson is sure to have his troops fired up for a strong defensive performance whilst possibly trying to sneak a winner on the break, and with players like Danny Wellbeck and Jon Parkin up front, that is a possibility. The Lilywhites have more than enough in their armoury to have a go at Newcastle and will have one eye over their shoulder as another defeat could jeopardize their current 14th place in the table and see them slide further towards the relegation zone.

Preston’s last league trip to St James’ Park came way back in 1981, with Newcastle running out 2-0 winners on that occasion. Our most recent meeting with them was the 1-0 win away at Deepdale back in November with Kevin Nolan scoring the winner.

Newcastle have no new injury worries ahead of the game on Saturday and in light of the result against Coventry City, and the fact that this is once again a home fixture, an unchanged starting line-up looks likely. That should leave us looking something like;

Newcastle United

Harper, Simpson, Colo, Williamson, van Aanholt, Routledge, Nolan, Guthrie, Jonas, Carroll, Lovenkrands

It’s would be hard to argue with that. A natural winger on both sides has made us look more balanced in recent weeks and the Nolan/Guthrie combination in the middle has worked surprisingly well, both players combining to create Andy Carroll’s goal against Coventry.

Likewise, Preston have no fresh injury concerns, although it remains to be seen if defender Callum Davidson will be rested after a knock to the head sustained back in January. On loan Peterborough defender Tom Williams will probably deputise should that be the case. Preston lined up against Derby in midweek looking like this;

Preston North End

Lonergan, Williams, Collins, St, Ledger, Jones, Sedgewick, Coutts, James, Wallace, Wellbeck, Parkin

Preston manager Darren Ferguson has already experienced St James’ Park this season, his Peterborough team getting beat 3-1 earlier in the season and fresh from conceding 5 goals away at Derby on Tuesday night, Ferguson knows that similar lapses in concentration on Saturday could be costly. The Scot added;

“We know what Newcastle are all about, and I’m not a negative person by any stretch of the imagination, but if we defend like we did at Derby, we’re going to be in a battle.”

“We’re aware of that, and we’ll get back to training and keep working as much as possible, but we know it’s going to be a difficult game at Newcastle.”

It seems after Wednesday, that we have a penalty master in our midst. Peter Lovenkrands expertly dispatched his penalty against Coventry high into the top left corner, a superb effort. It also seems that should the rarity of a penalty for Newcastle happen again against Preston, the Danish hitman will be first the choice taker. Manager Chris Hughton had this to say;

“To be able to put the ball in the top corner is the ideal penalty in many ways and the most difficult for a goalkeeper to save.”

“It was nice as well to get a penalty. I think that was just our third of the season and we haven’t had much luck in that department.”

“But not only was it nice to get one it was even better to score and it was a fabulous finish.”

Refereeing the match will be Andy Penn from the West Midlands. Incidentally, his last Newcastle match was the 2-1 defeat at Scunthorpe United earlier in the season.

To sum up then, I think we would all like another thumping home win and on paper it potentially could be as Preston have been leaking goals lately. Football isn’t played on paper though, and that is the reason why I’m plumping for a scrappy 2-1 win.

Howay the lads!

Kick off: St James’s Park, 3PM.

Referee: Andy Penn (West Midlands).

  1. Looks likes tashes were the order of the day then in the picture.
    Parkin is a real beast, I seem to remember the last time he played against us he came on as a sub and gave us some physical stick. Still should’t stop us winning with comfort however.

  2. The original Uziblogger Ed has outdone himself today with his Edline “The People Up Here Are Really Nice”

    lol

  3. well i thought we would struggle against coventry but thrashed them. So on paper we should kill preston…….so here goes, 2-0 toon and tighter than coventry. I just can not see us loosing this game though.

  4. I can also see a 2-0 win here. out of intrest would you guys take any pompey players if there was a fire sale there?

  5. Whumpie – I’ve sent an email to the address you registered on here with.

    As for my thoughts on tomorrow’s game, I can see it being a frustrating affair after the last two home games. I’m going for 1-0. But they can feel free to make a mockery of that prediction and go nuts again.

  6. I’m going to predict a hard-draft 1-0 too… while desperately hoping I’m totally wrong.

    In theory, if the players aren’t tired from their celebrations on Wednesday, we should roll them over and do them at least 6-0. But in theory we should have had a toughie against Cardiff and beaten Derby…

  7. Got your email, bbm – ta for that. Will ping you details when I can get away with typing on my phone for a mo…

    Will have two mates from the SE with me who desperately need educating in the esoteric beauty and poetic exuberance of Newcastle life. Or, “not worrying about how rich you look, getting bladdered, chatting up some scary, sexually carnivorous milfs and generally cocking about having a laugh”.

    I think it should be a mandatory course for anyone growing up within 50 miles of That London.

    Any suggestions for course content or venues, anyone? Age range is 29 to 45 (physical), 4 – 12 (mental)

  8. Mark Stockley – Belhadj for definate! You know that ;)

    As far as Portsmouth goes, yes I feel sorry for them. It’s never nice seeing clubs in a mess. However, they kind of got themselves into it and why should others bail them out?

    Lifting the transfer ban just for them has a massive knock on effect for clubs that buy them players. It would leave the FA open to claims by teams who have been in financial difficulty before yet had to fight there own way around it. Preferrential treatment and all that.

  9. should beat country and western easy,though past games show this league to be erratic in terms of results.
    mellor up front normally can,t score in a brothel with twenty pound notes hanging from a certain appendage,lets hope he doesn,t buck the trend tomorrow.
    i,ll go for a win with at least a two goal margin as preston are watford gap.

  10. it,s unfortunate for portsmouth to be in this mess,the reality is in this country we are going to see more clubs go to the wall.sadly it,s now a case of”PAY UP POMPEY,POMPEY PAY UP”.

  11. If the FA imposed some simple rules about operating within a set percentage of revenues, we’d have none of this. Also, Chelski and Citeh would both still be bottom-half teams, at best.

    But it won’t happen, because as long as the Premier League is making money, little things like fairness and the needs of the fans (aka those providing the money) means nowt.

    As I’ve said before, there are only two sorts of people working in professional football these days: convicted criminals, and the ones who’ve not been caught yet. And the worst of the lot sit in the governing bodies…

  12. salary cap is the only way forward for football in my opinion,and it should be operated in the same way the rugby league is run.
    stringent penalties and point reductions are in place in super league for any club breaching the cap.also there is a foreign player quota in place,which forces clubs to develop youth system level more.

  13. Dont think I saw the above team but did see Tom Finney on the left wing.
    Talking wingers, my favorite players, nice to see we have a couple of decent widemen at present, they tend to open and spread the defence and it`s allways a pleasure to watch a speedy winger take on defenders (showbusiness)
    I know Jonas so far has shown a lack of scoring ability, unlike his latino predacessor Nobby, but young Routledge looks like the real deal, we might have struck gold here.

  14. The FA and PL need to let Portsmouth sort out their own sh1t! If they bail them out there is no incentive for other clubs to work within their means.

    If that means Portsmouth going bust, then so be it. Football needs a club to go to the wall for it to learn.

  15. If Portsmouth indeed go into extinction,i would imagine quite an amount of chance in the points of BPL. Liverpool might not lose that three points. West Ham might slip into relegation zone.

    A lot of matters involving.

  16. i wonder if we,ll end up with a scenario,which happened in italy?they at the back end of the 80,s early 90,s was the place to be star players going there,players earning massive wages etc,then eventually the whole thing caved in,boring matches,same teams at the top,crowds started to go down,corruption was rife,match fixing etc sounnds familiar doesn,t it,could we be on the cliff,s edge?

  17. Whumpie – I agree, but you just need to look back at the entries in the comments on this blog and on ed’s to see that some fans are looking at Man City with jealous eyes. They were moaning that Ashley allegedly priced the club too high and insulted the people who were interested in us and City, so they bought City instead.
    Look at how mental the City fans went when they knew that they now had a bottomless pit of money to take from.

    How many people on here would honestly say that they wouldn’t want a mega rich oil baron to come and buy NUFC and inject the money Chelsea and Man City have?

    You could argue that we were at the forefront of all this. Blackburn essentially bought the title with their money, and we nearly did the same with Keegan and Sir John Halls riches.

    Football lost it’s soul years ago. It’s not nice, but we have to accept that in order to compete on a world stage you need a very, very, very rich owner and they are few and far between.

    Unless their is a restart of the English leagues where the top four disappear into a European League then I fear we will never be able to challenge for a top spot without a sugar daddy.

    It’s not right, but that’s how it is.

  18. @Toonsy: actually kinda thanks Liverpool in unsettling one of Sunderland current in-form striker. And bent seems to evaporate too.

    In my wish: i would love to see sunderland goes down,and we go up.

    **Opps** Sounds so alike with keegean speech.

    :lol:

  19. For many years now Man U, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal have all benefited from Champions League revenue, which has allowed them to a) buy the best players b) reach out to wider global audiences and sell more shorts, generate sponsorship.

    IF a salary cap in relation to turnover was brought in – the playing field should be level for ALL clubs. Certain parts of revenue and expenditure should be segmented off, and the salaries linked to simple known and predictable revenue such as gate receipts.

    So sponsorship, shirt sales, league position, CL money can all be spent on infrastructure, and/or players, to develop the stadium to get more gate receipts BUT not on wages. TV revenue should be notionally discounted to a certain percentage in factor in the risk of relegation – and once relegated you should have one season to offload players to conform to the new revenue standards.

    That way you have a level playing field for all clubs which factors the past, present and future into the new structure whilst being fair to all for future steady growth.

    The trouble is Man City, Chelsea (I omit Man U and Liverpool here) will object to that as it will break the monopoly on cash and resources therefore players – and the apparent “success” this creates. (anyone can be a prostitute)

  20. “If the FA imposed some simple rules about operating within a set percentage of revenues, we’d have none of this.”

    It is the only way forward in my opinion. the American football model, which is similar and often cited as ahuge success, took a players strike that shut down the season back in the 80’s. The end result today is a wage cap calculated at 55% of club revenues. The wage cap is then adjusrted up or down accordingly. The difference between the NFL and what has been discussed in England/Europe is that in the NFL the cap is calculated as 55% of the revenues of all 32 clubs combined- meaning the cap is the same for all teams. I beleive the euro cap being discussed would be calculted on a per team basis- menaing that a team with lower revenues would have a lower cap than Man U for example.

    “They were moaning that Ashley allegedly priced the club too high and insulted the people who were interested in us and City, so they bought City instead.”

    He didn’t, but even if he did, I wouldn’t lose any sleep over Ashley “insulting” them, as they are scum with no human decency whatsoever.

    “How many people on here would honestly say that they wouldn’t want a mega rich oil baron to come and buy NUFC and inject the money Chelsea and Man City have?”

    I wouldn’t want either Abramovich or Mansour. I’d feel ashamed that the club was subsidised by their immoral earnings.

  22. Deep deep down, If a mega rich tycoon came in I wouldn’t give a rats about the money and where it came from as long as it got my team some success.

    However, it’s unlikely to happen and as it isn’t the I suppose we should plan for a sustainable future, for all clubs.

  23. On the salary cap, There are a number of variations that have been successfully used by proffessional sports franchises in the US, in most cases a deal is cut between the players association and owners, where a division of profits was made between both parties.
    Naturally the owners share was the larger of the two, in some cases a sixty forty split.
    As i stated it worked in various ways, one being a fixed monatary figure was awarded to each team (from profits)this standard figure was the same for each team, the amount was dedicated to wages which the club has to stay within or pay penalties to the league.
    The amount can be distributed in any manner seen fit by the club, obviously stars being paid more than journeymen etc., with the other larger percentage of profit going to the respective owners.
    A system that would fit well with the current EPL and create a level playing field with no team being able to outspend the other.
    It would`nt effect the present domination of the EPL as far as earnings are concerned the division of monies guarrantees profit for the owners and still allows for a well compensated group of players.
    Perhaps with the recent infusion of US owners they may convince the league and playres association to employ a similar system.

  24. …and I like that idea too Chuck – that eliminates the risk to the club of relegation and what do you know – players might earn their wages trying to stave off relegation for once!

  25. What’s wrong with bringin in a regulation where you can only spend 50-60% of turnover on player aquisitions and salaries.

    That way it puts the emphisis on the clubs improving their turnover rather than just borrowing or getting a sugar daddy.

    I still think a club will have to go bust for something positive to happen.

  26. Stu – Thing is they have that in League 2 mate, and it’s easy to get around. Just look at Notts County. The rich backers who have disappeared now, found a way around it which increased turnover, ie a corporate sponsorship.

    It would be like Ashley saying, here is £50 million a year for having that Sports Direst sign above the Gallowgate.

  27. I take that point on board.

    Although looking at the situation at Notts County they couldn’t get round it as their £2m in debt and are on the brink of adminstration.

    Football is a mess – The wealthiest succeed, the rest are just making up the numbers.

  28. I’d quite like a cap of some sorts but think a regulation wherein you can only spend 50-60% of an individual clubs revenue would be better than an overall limit of 50-60% of combined revenue of all prem league clubs.
    This would leave clubs such as West Ham with a huge budget relative to actual income and well supported teams such as Manure, Arse, Liverpool and the toon with an effective cap.
    Rather see clubs with full grounds of passionate supporters getting a larger chunk to spend than teams such as bolton and wigan with barely full grounds getting the same amount to spend (and still only half filling the ground)

  29. Stu – They couldn’t get round it as they obviously didn’t have the cash. If they did though, that is the lophole that would have been exposed.

  30. 3 points tomorrow Lads feel it in my water.
    Ed is Uziblogger supreme…real shame cos most of the articles are so plop and cut and paste crap and tittle tattle….makes me yawn .org does.

    Have a good weekend lads see you on here for some banter…defiantly up for some player bashing during the match as it worked wonders last game !

    Howay the Lads!!

  31. Looking at the present financial system of many EPL clubs, it`s obvious the present way of doing business is unsustainable, regardless of the enormous tv revenues.
    In which case the owners will have to either employ a cap of some sort, that or employ a business plan that they can live with.
    Looking at certain clubs like Man U & L`Pool, it`s hard to see any profitability, though it`s possible that may change with increased tv revenues.
    As for clubs like Pompey, it`s hard to see such clubs with old stadiums and large debts avoiding bankrupcy.
    In which case a bankrupcy or two may be the catalyst which brings about a more sensible, sustainable and hopefully equitable system throughout the league.

  32. The problem is that teams like City and Chelsea can just throw money about and don’t really have to balance the books.

    To get new regulations in all the clubs would have to agree would they not? Why would Man City agree to something which restricts their chance of success?

    Turkeys aren’t going to vote for Christmas are they?

  33. workyticket……why have you called UAE arabs scum??? I presume you are just another idiot who thinks that because it is in the middle east that you must tar them with the same brush as other more agressive middle eastern countries??
    The club was bid for by one of the sheiks of abu dhabi for 300 million but ashley knocked it back as he wanted 400. they then went and bought city.
    we then went to try to sell it to mansoor but he offered 180 million and ashley thought it was so poor that he didnt even bother turning up for the meeting.
    For you to class the the people of UAE as scum is pathetic, miss informed and inaccurate.

  34. Oooooh !
    Gonna let chisolm get away with calling you an idiot Workey, bet he`s getting a hairdryer reply ready .

    Erm, no Craig, I didn’t call UAE arabs “scum” I called their ruling elite “scum” because they are. I just happen to object to things such as forced labour, traffiking in women and children, the exploitation, deception and passport theft of migrant workers and stuff like that, which is one of the main reasons why they are so wealthy. Do you?

  36. Hey, whats going on with the put Ed. down for mega blogging crowd.

    That is false, Craig.

  38. Worky has Batty been banned :lol: ? I havent seen him on in a while. oh and did you get my reply as I cant even remember which blog it was on mate.

  39. Dave – batty has been on but he has been working away apparently. Tarmacing drives takes you to far flung places you know.

  40. Politics, capitalism and Racism in the blog tonight. Anyone for a bash at religion. Your starter for ten paedophile catholic preists. ;)

    And now for something completely different, when I was a lad mucking about on the Tyne as a Sea Scout about the only thing seen floating on it were used Durex. The river was as dead as a Norwegian blue parrot. I was able to go fishing off the fish docks at North Shields beyond that though the river was an open sewer. What I would like to ask is does anyone on the blog go fishing on the Tyne now and is fishable anywhere along its length.

    I wouldn’t ban batty, Dave! I think he’s got gambling fever over some soap murder which I know nothing about. The few time he’s been on here he’s been blabbering about that with “komfort”.

    You mean this?

    “Worky > you almost certainly wouldn’t make if the manager was Shearer or Keegan.
    I will admit when it comes to KK I might be a bit biased But not with Big Al.
    My main problem with CH is that he allways seems to stick with the Senior players wiether they are not fully fit or just struggling, which means one of my “FAV’s” Guthrie never gets a good run in the center where I think he can make his own and can be a real cracking wee player and I think will be good in the EPL.
    Oh it was good to see him making that position his own tonite. ”

    As you wrote in the last line, Guthrie was in the centre last time as Hughton has got himself some right wingers now.

    Shami’s a Lib Dem actually, Stuart. You don’t have to be a member of the far left to have a conscience. But don’t let that stop you making assumptions, and getting things completely wrong as usual. ;-)

  44. Worky,

    She ain’t no Liberal Democrat. She’s as far left as you could get!

    She’s a pain in the backside!

  45. Worky thats the one ;) Funny I can see another problem arising very soon whats gona happen when we have Barton, Smith, Nolan and Butt all fighting for a place in the CM with Guthrie. Then we have the younguns trying to get a game when there all back.

  46. Dave are you being literal when you say
    Barton, Smith, Nolan and Butt all fighting for a place in the CM.
    I reckon Batty could run an interesting book on that contest. :)

  47. Dave as I half expected, but surely it applies to all of Ireland, although I would think England has its fair share as well. (just to show I am not Paddy bashing) :)

    “She ain’t no Liberal Democrat. She’s as far left as you could get!”

    Yes she is. She’s a member of the Lib Dems I’m afraid, and a member of the LDLA (Liberal Democrat Lawyer’s Association). I know more about her than you think, Stuart. What made you think that she was “as far left as you could get”?

  49. No fishing enthusiasts on the blog then, I would have thought with fairly high unemployment up there it would have been very popular.

  50. She might be a member of the party but she’s gone way past liberal!

    She’s the type of person who sticks up for the rights of burglars who are injured by their victims, thinks that bread and water for prisoners is against their human rights and thinks terror suspects shouldn’t be held for more than a week or so in custody! Just a few of her ridiculous views!

    She the enemy of Britian!

  51. Big Willy the only book Batty could run is a club book and the sports direct catalogue. But you would struggle to find someone that can shift as much dodgy gear ;)

    Big Willy – Do unemployed people do a lot of fishing then?

    They do in this neck of the woods, especially the huge chav population in the Basildon area. ;)

    We were catching up on back episodes of Lost, season 5.

    LOL. You are a funny one, Stuart.

  58. Off topic but if Portsmouth go out of business does it mean we get automatic promotion for a 3rd place finish?

    Also about them buying outside the window, we bought Darren Ambrose out of the window from Ipswich when they went into administration

  59. message to tiger woods…who do you think you are the president ?…your wife should have clubbed you to death like a baby seal..

    message to stacey…you should have got your mate to do it , i could feel the £1000 draining out of my clutches as quick as the life was out of poor bradley’s body….bitch..

    message to batty…soz m8 – somebody’s gonna get a good chinning when i catch up with them for giving me duff info..

    …todays recovery bet = the heed , the toon , arsenal & the team managed by the toon’s next manager huddersfield which pays a weekend changing 9/1..

    ..cornish thats 10 bob back if you stick to your normal stakes :)

    keep the faith…

  60. batty , last night on my way home from the pub i stopped to have a gypsy’s in corals doorway…being worse for wear i didn’t realise i was pissing on this tramp ! – he had a bottle of meths in his hand & started babbling on about how he could drink you under the table & that your just lucky with your gambling !!…i dropped him a quid and left…

    …..do you think it could’a been the hitman m8 ?.

  61. Cornish, I remember reading the same thing somewhere and they are apparently even deeper in it than first realised. I would think that its Forest who are looking at that scenario more hopefully.
    O’Hara (not sure if he’s a loanee) would fit into our future plans (Arsenal style?) nicely.

  62. Crapper,

    So if the PL bail them out what is to stop another club living beyond it’s means, winning the FA Cup then asking for a bail out when they cannot afford to pay their wages?

    The authorities would have set a precedant and they cannot afford to do that.

    It’s the only way other clubs will learn – They cannot be irresponsible, they cannot spend what they haven’t got and they cannot just walk away with a ten point deduction.

    The US did it with Lehmans and the PL need to do it with Portsmouth.

    You’d sharp see a different attitude by clubs if Portsmouth went bust. It would be a totally different game – A more level playing field – More fair and will bring the clubs and the fans back closer together.

  63. Stuart, I actually agree with you on the Pompey issue. It’s a shame and all that, but perhaps they should have thought about what would happen if the money dried up? After all, they spent it.

  64. spew – would you take that stance if it was the toon ? , no you’d be crying like a baby.

    but then again your such a flakey character you’d just move on to support someone else’s team.

    shitbag.

  65. It’s crazy!

    There has to be a cut off point and I honestly believe that if they went bust, there would be a hell of alot of chairman panicking!

    Clubs would have to change their approach, wages would have to come down and transfer fees would have to go down too.

    It’s just unfortunate for Portsmouth fans I guess.

  66. Crapper,

    Well we’ll just pay their debt off then – Maybe Man Utd and Liverpool’s while the cheque book’s out?

    Don’t worry if they run it back up again, we’ll just pay it off again.

    What a moby….

  67. What’s your solution then Crapper?

    I’ve noticed you have never came on here and had a decent conversation – You just talk crap.

    No ideas, no logic and no brains!

    Suprised you’re out of your wanking pit this early to be honest.

    Must have been a quite night in Burglary-ville.

    I don’t think there’ll be a video one, but there’ll be some radio ones no doubt, Willy.

    Don’t you know Workey is Chairman of the Liberal, leftie, free the world, seeker of truth and justice organisation?

  72. spew – you need to get out and make some friends , life’s not all about ripping poor people off.

    your patter stinks & i put that down to you knocking around with your mother.

    mummy’s boy

  73. I have to say thats theres a better class of insult on this blog, who needs to talk about football when we have that.

  74. Toonsy, concentrating on the main issue, we should have a proper team list soon although I am expecting the one you have suggested. The bench may be more interesting today. Is Smith going to be on it, the only reason I express a doubt is the supposed spat with CH. will there be any of the young guns?

  75. I know this is late but after watching the Cov video again I was dismayed at Harp’s performance against their goal scored. Anyone agree? Not trying to nitpick but it makes me wonder..

  76. acrossthepond – You do have to bear in mind that the Cov striker slipped as he was taking the shot which wrong-footed Harper.

    batty , last night on my way home from the pub i stopped to have a gypsy’s in corals doorway…being worse for wear i didn’t realise i was pissing on this tramp ! – he had a bottle of meths in his hand & started babbling on about how he could drink you under the table & that your just lucky with your gambling !!…i dropped him a quid and left…

    …..do you think it could’a been the hitman m8 ?.
    <<<<< was he fat and bald and had a club foot if so yes it was him

  78. damn – routledge out with calf injury

    NUFC: Steve Harper, Danny Simpson, Fabricio Coloccini, Patrick van Aanholt, Danny Guthrie, Alan Smith (c), Kevin Nolan, Jonas Gutierrez, Peter Lovenkrands, Andy Carroll
    Subs: Tim Krul, Fitz Hall, Tamas Kadar, Nile Ranger, Leon Best, Ryan Taylor, Fabrice Pancrate

  79. Steve, b*gger, I think I would rather see Taylor or Best instead of Smith. Still should win comfortably.

  80. All good Bud I havn’t seen you on much I thought for a while you might have ben banned lol. oh who did you back for the eastender thing and what was the odds on that girl that done it
