Keep Your Enemies Closer: Anzhi Makhachkala

Newcastle United open Europa League Round of 16 play with a match at Anzhi Makhachkala Thursday. We sat down with Andy Shenk, an Anzhi supporter, and asked him to give us some inside info on his club.

Newcastle United Advance to Europa Round of 16

Shola Ameobi's penalty was enough to push Newcastle over Metalist Kharkiv, 1-0.

Can we balance Kharkiv leg 2 and Southampton?

We're in need of at least a scoring draw to progress in the Europa League. There is that small matter of the league match v. Southampton to consider as well. Can we get something in Kiev while putting maximum concentration on the Premier League?


It could be worse; it should be better 0-0 @ half

Newcastle United have not been able to find that last pass or shot thus far against Metalist Kharkiv (or when they have it has been called offside in the most bizarre and wrong fashion). 45 minutes to get a leg up in this tie.

Small sample size? Scout anyway!

Building a scouting report on the miniscule sample size of one match is fraught with danger... but I've done it anyway. Here are some of the things that Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk did to defeat Metalist Kharkiv in Metalist's last league setback.

Metalist Kharkiv's Last Loss

The ol' Youtube has come through again... kind of - here is the complete broadcast of Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk's victory over Metalist Kharkiv (Metalist's last loss). It's Spanish commentary, however. Two things to keep in mind as you watch, however - Willian and Taison (left and right midfield) have both been sold during the January window.

2nd Place assured - bring on the round of 32

Surely winning the group would have been preferable, but there was an understandable onus on staying healthy today. With the manager's estimation the big prize on the day, Newcastle's youngsters lost 2-0 at Bordeaux.

"Newcastle Reserves" hanging in with Bordeaux

It's far from ideal to be trailing at halftime, but an under-strength Newcastle United side are acquitting themselves well in Bordeaux. Although they have dimmed off a bit from their early match form, they may have enough to climb back in the match.

Nile Ranger, Supergenius

The troubled striker has found his way back into the first team for Newcastle United according to Alan Pardew. Whether or not he can stay there will depend on his form and his ability to stay out of trouble.

Many, many youngsters in squad for Bordeaux

The sheer number of young players traveling for the last Europa League match may indicate that Alan Pardew (understandably) will try to rest as many senior players as possible. While that may not be possible in defense, there are options up front.
