What’s Your Starting Eleven Against Club Brugge?


Newcastle will play Club Brugge tomorrow night in Group D of the Europa League, and it will be interesting to see which team Alan Pardew selects, although we have to think that Cheick Tiote and Papiss Cisse will both start against the Belgian side.

Shane Ferguson – likely to start on left wing tomorrow night

Club Brugge are currently top of the Belgian league, but the Newcastle manager will still give some of his youngsters and fringe players a game against the Belgian club.

Alan said he has an idea of which team he will start tomorrow:

“I have a team in my mind for Brugge.” “It will be very similar to the one selected to play Bordeaux.” “That’s the best clue I can give you.”

The Newcastle manager will want to give a game to some of his fringe players while resting players for the important game against West Brom at home on Sunday.

Here’s a possible starting eleven:

Harper
Tavernier Perch Taylor(S) Anita
Obertan Tiote Bigirimana Ferguson
Cisse Ameobi (Sh)

That’s our best effort at the team.

Which starting eleven do you think the manager will choose for tomorrow’s important game?

    Didn’t we start 4-3-3 against Bordeaux or did we transition in to it?

    I think Ed is pretty close with that line up (the players at least), not so sure on formation. Would be happy with:

    ————-Harper—————-
    Tav—–Perch—STaylor—-Anita
    ———–Tiote–Bigi————
    –Obertan—-Shola—Ferguson–
    —————Cisse—————

    Come on Alan, make it so.

    Rozzy…..He seems to have fallen down the pecking order a bit. Shame, but on his cameos this season, he doesn’t seem to show the same drive that he had before. Certainly not writing him off, I still have high hopes for him.

    Maybe Ferguson at LB and Marveaux LW?

    Big question….which strikers making the bench? Ba, Campbell or……drumroll please….Xisco?

    Well Brugge sound unstoppable top of the BELGIAN league? Sweet jesus I’m trembling in fear, our only hope is a tactical mind fudge

    Tiote
    Cisse ba ameobi carver
    Colo willo(dressed as bungle) simmo perch
    Krul Elliot

    Brugge will start the match suffering from intense confusion, especially if pards is dressed in a tutu, we should use this opportunity to rush into a 4 goal lead and then pray we don’t get crushed by godly belgian football

    Rainrix…Can Tiote wear a tutu also? If so, think you’re on to a winner there.

    I think Abeid may get a game with Vuckic and Gosling injured. An early Xas present for Kets.

    @Rainrix I’m guessting the tactic is to have John Carver shout at the opposition so they move out the way, have Tiote trap them in a corner and then Elliot finishes off the job!

    my team for tomorrow is:

    ____________Harper_________

    Simmo___ Willo__ STaylor___ Ferguson

    Obertan_____ Tiote_________Guti

    ___________Amalfitano________

    ______Cisse________Fushola___

    Super sub: Xisco for Cisse

    do believe we need to give more games to Amalfitano, otherwise he’ll end up being a xisco.

    Not got a great deal of confidence in Tav, would prefer to see Willo in CB and put Perch out there. This game is too big for Tav, I know he needs to pick u expirence somewhere along the way but not this game.

    Sholadona… Or when he’s about to be tackled, have him pull out a butchers knife and then say…

    “So do you know why they call me…..

    (Puts on sunglasses)

    …..Carver?”

    I do apologise for this silliness my mind is completely burned out from coding php, i fear I’ve gone slightly mental

    I feel we brought anita in to play midfield and i would like to see him get settled there, ed could have a pointplaying anita on the same line as fergie as that for me would see fergie getting plenty of ball from anita, but midfield for me for anita and with tiotes suspension coming anita gets his chance to get bedded in.

    I don’t suppose there’re any fans in Belgrade who will be watching the game tomorrow somewhere?

    I’ll be in town for a few days but will immediately be looking for a pub or some place to watch the game

    @Rainrix You still make more sense than Kets, anyway. He’d be furious actually. Willo and Simmo playing? Tch

    Harper
    Tav Saylor Willo Fergie
    Obertan Anita Tiote Sammy
    Shola Cisse

    Don’t think Sammy will start though, but we dont see enough of him, why? Mareaux will line up instead most likely. Willo may get a rest too, for Perch or Colo or maybe for a half each.

    I expect us to play well and win by 2

    Hope Anita discovers some kind of form. Close to giving up on Obertan, though apparently he was MOM last time? Still haven’t seen him actually dribble past a player. Would appreciate evidence 🙂

    We definitly need to put Xisco on the bench to press our main strikers to perform as they cannot be regulars if there not scoring and becoming comfortable starters.

    Genuinely think Jonas will be rested, and Willo….

    I reckon itll be 442 and this will be the team

    Dunno how his contract hasn’t been cancelled yet, if i turned up to work late everyday i sure i’d get fired sharpish, shouldn’t be any different for him. I just hope he wasn’t given too good a wage when he got that new contract.

    I believe he’s been told unless he can turn up to training on time for 6 weeks he’s done. Not looking good really.
