Rossi To Play Today

It now seems it wasn't the wisest of decisions to let Rossi to Newcastle. He did not start in any of the Toon Army's league games however hard they struggle in this season and Sir Alex Ferguson has already complained about Rossi's lack of chances. Now the 19-year-old Italian is set to make his first start against Portsmouth - in the Carling Cup, in which he gained plenty of experience during his United days.

'I am prepared to say that Giuseppe will start the game,' manager Glenn Roeder told Newcastle's official website. 'I'm looking forward to seeing him play.

'He trains exceptionally well and he has fitted into the squad in the manner that you would expect from a young player. The squad have taken to him, he is a fantastic character and in training he has shown a terrific amount of ability, so I am looking forward to seeing him out there.'

Now I have only question to ask from Mr. Roeder: why on earth does he think Rossi would not be able to at least match Shola Ameobi's performances? According to Roeder, the Italian 'has shown a terrific amount of ability'. Well, I don't remember Ameobi ever showing any ability (maybe I'm harsh on him but he's not exactly popular among those Newcastle fans I know) and I daresay things would be no worse with Rossi in the starting line-up. Even more, there's a chance they will get better and our extremely talented young striker would finally get some chance he so richly deserves. But right now I can't wait for him to come back in January.

It's obvious Rossi's not getting in the team because Newcastle are playing so well and scoring loads of goals... and it's self-evident that the Geordies' manager knows exactly what he's doing... which is why they're on such a great run of games...
