Hello, good afternoon and welcome to our “match banter” feature for this afternoon’s game at St Mary’s Stadium.
Two weeks after West Ham, we see Alan Pardew returning to another one of his former clubs, who he managed in League One, helping them to to win the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy aka the “Paint Pot,” but norrowly missing out on the League One playoff places before he was sacked under mysterious circumstances by the club’s Chairman, Nicola Cortese. Will Pardew have his revenge? We shall see!
One thing’s for sure is that Pardew will be desperate to pull the Magpies out of their recent mini slump, where they have only picked up one Premiership point in their last three games. But for in depth look forward to the game, with all the form guides, team news, tactical speculation, what the managers have been saying and more, you can check out my extensive match preview.
For now, I will get on with reminding you that I shall posting the teamsheets on here when they become available. This game will not be broadcast live in the UK, but fear not as I will also be posting some online links for those of you who can’t get it on the boob tube, as well as posting highlights and possibly a video of the whole match if / when one becomes available.
