Back to st James Park for the visit of Villa, and we've got a couple of Dembas back too. It's just the weather to welcome another lad from Senegal, it's been snowing here today, and there is supposed to be more tomorrow. So we'll see if the match actually goes ahead (it should do). Cabaye's suspended and we played badly yet somehow got three points in midweek, there's a big question on what Pardew does. Ba is nailed on to start, maybe Cisse too, but more likely he comes on in the second half. Kick off is 1:30 pm GMT. Howay the lads and discuss.
