West Ham v Newcastle United.
Will Carroll and Nolan be kept at bay?
Venue: The Boleyn Ground, London.
Date: Sat 4th May, 2013.
Kick off: 3.00pm.
Referee: Phil Dowd.
UK TV: None.

Well it’s all starting to come to the boil now, with Newcastle United still uncertain of their future in the Premier League next season.

For the second time since Derek Llambias became Managing Director in June, 2008, the Magpies face the abyss. As events unfold in East London, it will be tempting to cast the occaisional glance at events over at the Hawthorns too, where West Brom will be taking on our game in hand relegation rivals, Wigan.

It could well be two very familiar faces who cause us the most problems this afternoon with West Ham’s two top goalscorers, Andy Carroll and Kevin Nolan putting old allegiances aside. Carroll in particular has has come into some good form after recovering from his last injury. In his last four games, Carroll has scored four goals for the Hammers and seems to be back to his old self again.

With three draws and two wins in their last five games, things certainly seem to be looking up for the Hammers, and they will be no pushovers, especially at home. Meanwhile, on the Newcastle side, manager and ex West Ham player, Chris Hughton, has had something of a torrid week with the team booed in the draw against Wigan, the latest chapter of “Carrollgate”, and the departure of assistant, Colin Calderwood, to Hibs. Despite some disappointing home form this season though, the Magpies have have been quite strong on the road, and the game should be quite a tight affair. (more…)
