QPR vs Newcastle United match preview

September 11th, 2011 | 15 Comments |

QPR v Newcastle United, September 2011.
Loftus Road beckons
Venue: Loftus Road, London
Date: Monday, Sept 12th, 2011
Kick-off: 8:00pm
Referee: Phil Dowd

After the annoying international break, Newcastle United return to Premier League action with a visit to the capital to take on Neil Warnock’s Queens Park Rangers.

The match is scheduled for live broadcasting via Sky Sports 1. Phil Dowd is the man in the middle, which could possibly be a good thing if you take into account it was he who was referee in our 4-4 draw against Arsenal, our 5-1 hammering of the Tramps and a memorable 4-3 victory at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea last season. Perhaps Dowd is now a good omen for the Magpies…

Much has been said about Joey Barton’s debut on Monday for Rangers, so I’m not going to go into detail about it because it’s boring and I don’t care. (more…)

Yohan Cabaye relishes facing Joey Barton
Deathmatch v Barton
Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye muses on the English game and is looking forward to playing against Joey Barton in our next league game.

Things seem a bit flat of late. By which I don’t mean that they’ve been run over by a passing steamroller, but rather since the transfer window closed – and without a game last weekend – there just doesn’t seem to be a lot happening on the ‘Toon News’ front.

I’m curious to see how Pardew will attempt to talk around the abject disappointment of the late transfer window dealings. Or lack of them in our case. I actually feel for the guy as I reckon his disappointment will be equal to ours and yet – if history is any guide – he’ll be tasked with trying to put a positive spin on things.

He could start by mentioning Yohan Cabaye, who has been speaking to The Journal to tell them he’s all fired up to play opposite Joey Barton in our upcoming game against QPR.

Yohan said: “I am looking forward to it. I’m sad to see Joey go. I will be happy to see Joey again next week – and to win against him!

Well, hopefully, although I don’t think QPR will be pushovers by any stretch of the imagination. (more…)
