Newcastle Make Full 11 Changes From Side That Hammered Villa


There are 11 changes to the Newcastle starting line-up from the side that beat Aston Villa 6-0 on Sunday.

Tim Krul starts in goal, with the defensive back line being made up of Ryan Taylor, Northern Ireland full-back Shane Ferguson, who makes his Newcastle debut (thought he was a winger),   Tamas Kadar and James Tavernier.

The line up from right to left is probably Taylor Kadar Tavernier and Ferguson.

In midfield, Kazenga LuaLua, Ryan Donaldson and Haris Vuckic all start, while Peter Lovenkrands is in the starting eleven with captain Shola Ameobi and Nile Ranger up-front.

This seems to be a very inexperienced side – dare we say – and we have to hope that Chris hasn’t overdone it.

But the bench has some good experienced players on it, in the form of Kevin Nolan, Mike Williamson, Joey Barton, Wayne Routledge, James Perch and Alan Smith – and they may be needed in the second half  if  the lads cannot the better of  this Accrington Stanley side.

No sign of Danny Guthrie in the squad, so he must still be troubled by his knee injury,  and we make the average age of the side about 21.7 – with 6 teenagers starting and one 20 year-old – just like at Peterborough United last year.

We have to hope the result will be different tonight.

TEAMS

Accrington Stanley: Ian Dunbavin, Jonathan Bateson, Dean Winnard, Sean Hessey, Andrew Procter, James Ryan, Charlie Barnett, Ray Putterill, Sean McConville, Philip Edwards, Andy Parkinson.
Subs: Alex Cisak, Leam Richardson, Luke Joyce, Rory Boulding, Christopher Turner, Peter Murphy, Andrew Owens.

Newcastle United: Tim Krul, Ryan Taylor, Shane Ferguson, James Tavernier, Tamas Kadar, Kazenga LuaLua, Ryan Donaldson, Haris Vuckic, Peter Lovenkrands, Shola Ameobi, Nile Ranger.
Subs: Kevin Nolan, Mike Williamson, Joey Barton, Wayne Routledge, James Perch, Alan Smith, Ole Soderberg.

Referee: Rob Shoebridge

Attendance: TBC

    although hoots would never admit it, i think he cares nowt about this cup and would rather not even have it, as it’s just another meaningless game in which his players risk injury. The squad is already thin.
    If the lads win it, he’ll run them out again next week. But i would wager that he couldn’t care less about the result tonight. Honestly neither do i. Only result tha matters this year is finishing 17 and up.
    Will be nice to watch the younguns 🙂

    i was disappointed we didnt push on after our goal, seemed to stop playing a bit after, i thought.

    i would rather we didnt have to use the players on the bench who will play on saturday, so hope we can take control early on in the second half.

    We are not looking that bad. Taylor had a nice cracking goal. Hope Ranger gets in front of Ameobi, Lovenkrands, and Leon Best in striker order. He is very good young prospect.

    Two great goals tbf.

    Some of their tackling has been appalling though but their fans seem class, with the ‘RIP SIR BOBBY” flag. Nice touch that is.

    We haven’t really kept the ball well enough in midfield, our main threat is down the wings, particularly the right – Ranger and Taylor have linked up well.

    Leave it till 60 mins and then start bringing on the ringers if we’re not ahead!

    hopefully fitness should start to show as the game goes on.

    the issue with passing the ball around in midfield might be the width of the pitch, it seems really small to me, it could be the camera angle but it doesn’t look like their is any space in there.

    slaz, very true, it’s hard for us to find any space on the pitch. Most of it seems to be down this right side (again, probably because of the camera angle) rather than the left.

    I hope he moves Ranger up front, brings on Routledge for Shola.

    i would like to see the wingers hug the touch line and strikers try and push their defence back as much as possible, ameobi keeps coming back into midfield when we have the ball which just makes it more congested.
