Title: Thurs 4th Oct - Europa League - Newcastle 3 Bordeaux 0
Post by: trophy4toon on October 02, 2012, 11:30:23 pm
Well it's live on ESPN at 8:05 pm and might be quite an interesting match to be honest.

Bordeaux are a team in form and unbeaten in 17 matches.

Our injuries are piling up, out are likely to be Krul, Simpson, Coloccini, Steven Taylor, Ryan Taylor and probably Cabaye.

Thats actually the whole of our first choice defence at the start of last season plus our midfield anchor man.

Wait till Thursday to see the latest team news.

Newcastle at last showing some form this season and playing well to deservedly win.

It's becoming a bit monotonous now but for the third game in a row Shane Ferguson whips in a perfect cross from the left, this time it's Cisse on the end of it, hopefully another goal will help his confidence and improve his woeful performances this season.

Another booking for Tiote after only 20 minutes, lol, probably best not play him in the Europa league, he'll be lucky to stay on the pitch.
