Pardew names unchanged side for Hull visit

Keeping the status quo

Keeping the status quo

As expected, Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has made no changes to the side that beat Aston Villa last weekend for today’s match at home to Hull City.

Given how impressive, and much more complete the team performance was in large spells of the game, this really comes as no surprise. Although it is refreshing to see the manager pick players based on form, instead of sticking Tiote right back into the side, which could potentially imbalance the Newcastle midfield.

It is important to note that Steven Taylor and Jonas are not back to full fitness, but it would appear that the Newcastle United manager is beginning to drop certain nailed on starters from the side, which we hope he continues to do.

This is the side that Alan Pardew has named to face Hull City this afternoon,

Newcastle United (4-3-3): Tim Krul; Mathieu Debuchy, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Davide Santon; Vurnon Anita, Moussa Sissoko, Yohan Cabaye; Hatem Ben Arfa, Papiss Cisse, Loic Remy

Substitutes: Rob Elliot, Paul Dummett, Williamson, Cheick Tiote, Sylvain Marveaux, Sammy Ameobi, Yoan Gouffran

We’re impressed that Alan Pardew has at least shown some willingness to change his ethos from last season, however the same reservations about squad depth are around. Here’s hoping for a positive performance and 3 points please!

What do you think about this line up? Would you have chosen differently? Is Pardew beginning to learn or should he revert to another tactic? I’d love to hear your views.
