Sylvain Marveaux faces crunch time at Newcastle United

Sylvain Marveaux has had a rather turbulent career at Newcastle United so far. He has been riddled with injuries and as a result has never had a chance to show us all what he can actually do.

We have seen glimpses of brilliance from him, like when Newcastle played Anzhi Mackachkhala back in 2013 in the Europa League knockout stages. He played an eye-of-the-needle ball in the dying embers of the game to Papiss Cisse who just could not miss - and didn't. 

Marveaux was hit with injury again, though, and was shipped out on loan to EA Guincamp of the French Ligue 1.

Marveaux had yet another injury hit season, but when he did play he looked very good. So it remains to be seen, if he could keep himself fit would he be in the first team at St James' Park? I definitely think so. 

He is nimble, he is quick, he has a great passing range as well as a hammer of a left foot. So yes, he would be in the first team because he is a fantastic player. It just pains me to see him injured all of the time.

Marveaux could have been a superstar

If he could have kept fit over the past few seasons, I firmly believe he wouldn't be at Newcastle anymore. He would be playing for an Arsenal or a Manchester Utd. Maybe even PSG. He is that good. 

Anybody that has seen him play in the flesh will tell you the same thing. He is very composed on the ball and will give you that ball on your toe nine times out of ten. He is incredibly diverse in the way he plays too.

When he gets the ball he has the ability to go on a storming run down the wing, gliding past six or seven players as if they aren't there, or he can just play a 60-yard pass and have it land perfectly on the foot of his intended target. 

Now is crunch time for the Frenchman in my eyes though. Injuries are ruining this lads career and he needs to stay fit. If he can stay fit for the most part of the upcoming season then he will be a first team player by the end of it, without a shadow of a doubt.

If he cannot stay fit and has another injury hit season, he will be sold for pittance to a lowly Ligue 1 team. His career path relies on how his fitness levels are this season. 

I really hope he pulls through the season because he has so much potential but never gets the opportunity to realise it.

Mind you, he does get a free ticket to every match. I don't want to see him kicking every ball from the stands like he normally does this season, I want to see him doing it down on the pitch for real. 

Good luck, Marv! You'll need it.
