Zog Gets Start – In For Injured Duff At Boro


Joe Kinnear, as expected, makes one enforced change to the side which got the fantastic result at Chelsea last Saturday, and Charles N’Zogbia comes in for the injured Damien Duff, to give Charles a start for the first time since Newcastle played in Joe’s first game in charge at  Everton on 5th October.

As expected Mark Viduka returns to the bench after his six-month Achilles injury, and Steven Taylor is also named on the substitutes bench, following his groin strain, which had him miss three games.

Michael Owen captains the side in what is his 400th club game of his career, and he’s scored 191 goals in that time, with 26 goals for Newcastle United, since September, 2005.

TEAMS

Middlesbrough: Ross Turnbull, Justin Hoyte, Andrew Taylor, David Wheater, Emanuel Pogatetz, Jeremie Aliadiere, Julio Arca, Didier Digard, Stewart Downing, Tuncay Sunli, Alfonso Alves
Subs: Adam Johnson, Marvin Emnes, Mido, Jonathan Grounds, Seb Hines, Josh Walker, Brad Jones

Newcastle United: Shay Given, Habib Beye, Jose Enrique, Sebastien Bassong, Fabricio Coloccini, Nicky Butt, Danny Guthrie, Jonas Gutierrez, Charles N’Zogbia, Oba Martins, Michael Owen (c)
Subs: Steve Harper, Claudio Cacapa, Steven Taylor, Mark Viduka, David Edgar, Andy Carroll, Geremi

Referee: Alan Wiley
Attendance: tbc

    We need Le Zog and Jonas to perform today.

    If they’re on form I can’t see Taylor and Hoyte touching them.

    High quality link anywhere?

    Good team, but what tom_toon said rings true in that the bench has none of the more promising youngsters on, but i suppose we need experience in times like these.

    Our midfeild needs to spread out and keep their shape during attack. They might be doing that right now but who would know. Any links
