Tbh, i thought are midfield looked better for the Reading game and look how poor we was, now we've got Neville in there alongside Rodwell i would imagine and i don't feel confident at all that are midfield will get the better of Barton, Nolan and Tiote.
I think Arteta will go on the left and link up with Baines and try and forge a partnership like Baines and Pienaar had and get at Newcastle that way as there right hand side isn't as strong as the left or centre IMO.
Quality wise, there centre of midfield is better than ours and that's where it could be won or lost. Tiote is a very good player, as strong as an ox and doesn't shirk a tackle, neither does Barton but he can pass a ball very well and dictate the play and can put in a good set piece and is a better player than alot of Evertonians give credit for!. And Nolan brings goals to the party so he's always a threat.
This could turn out to be a tough afternoon for us today but it depends on what Newcastle AND Everton teams turn up today?!. Tbh im more bothered about Everton and if the Everton team that was shockingly shit versus Bolton and Reading turn up then it doesn't matter what Newcastle team turns up, they'll win cos when were bad, were disgustingly bad!.
