CHN Links: Saturday Edition

Good morning, Toon Army. I've avoided making Arsenal puns in this space so far this week, but it hasn't been easy. Check out the links after the jump.

I'm not sure what the context of this is, but it's funny.

Shola Ameobi is happy with the chemistry he and Andy Carroll have developed at the front, but Chris Hughton is said to be considering a return to the 4-5-1. The 4-4-2 is exactly what's needed to crack Arsenal's defense, in my opinion. (Mark Douglas, The Journal) Ameobi says his injuries are behind him. (Paul Fraser, The Northern Echo)

It's only been a week and a half since Newcastle were beaten badly by Arsenal in a League Cup match, and Kevin Nolan has revenge on his mind. (Lee Ryder, The Chronicle)

Joey Barton expects to hear boos tomorrow...but isn't that always an expectation? He's shown he can handle it. (Lee Ryder, The Chronicle)

Kevin Nolan says that Newcastle's English players are focused on the club, not being selected to the national team. (Lee Ryder, The Chronicle) Arsene Wenger came out in support of Andy Carroll for England, saying that he's the center forward of the future. (Shaun Custis, The Sun)

The Guardian argues that short-term contracts are preferable to long-term contracts for clubs and cites Chris Hughton's case.

Add Paul Fraser of The Northern Echo to the already long list of writers who think Hughton should get a new contract.

Simon Bird of MirrorFootball thinks it's time for Hughton to name an assistant.

Lee Ryder isn't buying Steve Bruce's complaints of "etiquette."

Lee Ryder compares this team after 10 games to previous Newcastle teams and concludes that the lads are in fine position.
