Kevin Keegan has selected an interesting side for the game tonight against Real Mallorca.
There are three changes from the side which was beaten by Hertha Berlin on Friday night.
Shola Ameobi has a slight hamstring problem and misses out and Nicky Butt, Jason Gutierrez and Charles N’Zogbia are rested.
As expected new signing Sebastien Bassong gets another start, along with David Edgar and Damien Duff.
Not quite sure what the back four will look like but it could be Taylor, Cacapa, Bassong and Enrique, with Geremi, Guthrie, Edgar and Duff forming a midfield four and Milner and Smith up front.
Milner gets a chance up front as we had thought – since that’s where he started his career as a schoolboy.
Newcastle will be wearing their purple for tonight’s game and Geremi will again captain the side.
