Coloccini, Tiote, Amalfitano, Vuckic All Start For Newcastle


Fabricio Coloccini will start tonight in what is a strong starting eleven for Newcastle United against Fenerbahce in the Sonnenseestadion (SC Ritzing), Austria.

Rob Elliot starts in goal and Demba Ba will be the lone striker up front,  against what is expected to be a  strong Turkish side, who start their European Champions League qualifying games in a week.

Haris Vuckic,  James Tavernier, Haris Vuckic and Romain Amalfitano all start for the Magpies, which shows the impact these young lads have had on this tour.

It’s a new formation, said to be  4-2-3-1 – but you can overdo these formations, and it’s really a modified 4-5-1 formation.

It’s a 7:30 pm KO time – not 7:00 pm as I had thought – my error.

Newcastle United (4-2-3-1): Rob Elliot; Danny Simpson, James Tavernier, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Ryan Taylor; Cheick Tiote, Dan Gosling; Gabriel Obertan, Haris Vuckic, Romain Amalfitano; Demba Ba
Substitutes: Steve Harper, Davide Santon, Mike Williamson, Mehdi Abeid, Gael Bigirimana, Sylvain Marveaux, Jonas Gutierrez, Shola Ameobi, Sammy Ameobi

Fantastic to see Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome come in first and second in today’s time trial in the Tour de France Stage 19, and the first time an Englishman will ever have won the Tour – assuming Bradley can make it into Paris tomorrow. 😀

And Chris will be in second place overall – fabulous.

    Looks like Amalfitano will be playing on the wing, which is a shame as he would probably be better in CM, as he’s slow as a snail.

    Personally i think Pards will want to test Vuckic in a striker role as much as possible, same with Sammy, it’s gonna be a long season, and AP will want as much versatility as he can get.

    I see it like this:

    __________Elliot__________
    Simmo__Tav___Colo__Raylor
    _______Tiote__Gosling
    Obertan___Romain___Vuckic
    __________Ba

    Think the AM trio will be pretty fluid, interchanging a lot.

    @Dannyo

    Maybe.. I never really pictured Vuckic as a striker, more of an attacking midfield player. Kind of gutted that Magic Man Marv isn’t starting. I think he needs to get a couple of games under his belt, not just 20 minute cameo’s etc in order to be ready for next season.

    Btw, anyone know what happened to that Paul Dummett lad? He went on last years pre-season tour and was rather impressive down the left.

    It’s going to be like this:

    —————–Elliott
    —Simmo – Tav – Colo – Raylor—
    —-Gosling – Tiote – Vuckic——-
    ——-Obertan – Amlfatino———
    —————-Ba———————–

    All according to the homepage, Ba will recieve support from Amalfatino and Obertan.
    I like it. What i don’t like is Raylor at LB.

    @Debuchery
    Dunno why Dummet is not with the first team squad, he may have had some good games last pre-season, but either he’s not ready or he won’t be good enough.
    Allot of players stall their development at 18-19 and drops down to lower leagues.
    We’ll see.

    As for Vuckic, he’s capable to play a striker role, but as u say, he’s much more comfortable as an ACM.

    Btw, Haris will be able to roam in a bit of a nr 10 role tonight aswell.
    Should be in his ace. Looking like 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 is our formation this season. Happy 🙂

    Beardo, your formation is how i would envision this working, given that vucic is the attacker who is left footed.

    For those in Vienna:

    If you’re in Vienna but are finding game too difficult to get to, Flannagen’s bar has Euro ESPN and are showing the game.

    I’ll repost this throughout the day… apologise.

    Any idea how far Fenerbahce are into their pre-season? We could be on the end of a spanking here if the lads are as off the pace as the past two games.

    Is Gosling the new blog hate figure now Simpson’s leaving?
