Newcastle Make Nine Changes – Sammy Ameobi Starts


Newcastle make nine changes from the side that drew with Sunderland on Sunday at the Stadium of Light.

Sammy Ameobi starts, as does Papiss Cisse and as expected Gael Bigirimana and Cheick Tiote are paired together in central midfield.

And it looks like Newcastle will play a 4-3-3 formation tonight, with Vurnon Anita making up the numbers in midfield, and Cisse, Ameobi and Obertan the three up front.

Steve Harper returns in goal, but Davide Santon is at right back when we though James Tavernier may get a game.

Shane Ferguson starts but it looks like he’s at left back tonight, and as expected James Perch and Steven Taylor are the two center halfs.
he subs bench too.

The bench is full of experience with Tim Krul, Fab Coloccini, Ben Arfa, Shola Ameobi and Demba Ba, and 17 year-old Adam Campbell also gets on the subs bench tonight.

Teams:

Newcastle United (4-3-3): Steve Harper; Davide Santon, Steven Taylor, James Perch, Shane Ferguson; Gael Bigirimana, Cheick Tiote, Vurnon Anita; Gabriel Obertan, Papiss Cisse, Sammy Ameobi
Substitutes: Tim Krul, Fabricio Coloccini, Yohan Cabaye, Hatem Ben Arfa, Adam Campbell, Shola Ameobi, Demba Ba

Club Brugge (4-3-3): Bojan Jorgacevic; Tom Hogli, Carl Hoefkens (c), Jordi, Bart Buysse; Vadis Odjidja, Jonathan Blondel, Jesper Jorgensen; Lior Refaelov, Carlos Bacca, Maxime Lestienne
Substitutes: Vladan Kujovic, Jannes Vansteenkiste, Bjorn Engels, Victor Vazquez, Thibaut van Acker, Ivan Trickovski, Bjorn Vleminckx

    One of my favorite things about this lineup:

    Steven Taylor captains.
    Mr. Newcastle himself 🙂

    never thought of 4-3-3 too much 4-4-2 before today
    but now i think about it i would say we are going to have a dimond set up. 4-2-1-3 and while anita comes down the middle bigi and tiote can cover while santon and fergie go wide along with obatan and sammy while the otherside assist cisse in the box at the same time

    Agressive line up, bags of pace – but not a lot going on the hair front.

    I was thinking this side has shitloads of pace too.
    And if it all goes sour, there’s shitloads more on the bench.

    And btw, we’re not bothered about defenders tonight i see.
    Collo only defender on the bench.

    I thought as group we needed Hair therapy;

    If anyone wants to get over Andy Carroll – just think of him with his hair in bunches, with bobbles in West Ham colours.

    It’s transformational.

    as for premier league games i think two things might have changed to our league line up i get the feeling that shola and willo might become starters to the league team.

    U’re right, i apoligize, i went entirely too far with that comment.
    I’ve taught Cwarr naught.

    @tads
    Aye, he’ll need those 90 mins imo.

    toonking…Interesting. Think Pardew is wanting to take the EL more serious? Might just be a one off, we’re home, no travel issues? Think we’ll still see an extremely mixed side in the away games, hopefully we’ll be sitting pretty comfortably by then, so the young lads can play with some freedom.

    Marveux can’t be happy atm tho, altho he’s had no good games yet this season, must be causing some issues.
    Hopefully he’ll come through.
    It’s not like we’re lacking wingers tbh…

    I like that team, good to see a strong bench too. Bennhy/Ba to the rescue if things aren’t going well. Vital playing time for Anita, Bigirimana, Ferguson and Sammy. Can’t wait to see him back in action! And as for Saylor captaining the side… bliss. C’mon boys, 2 wins before Monday and I’ll be dancing in the streets like a tit.

    yorkymag where my saylor being dropped is come from is IMO i can’t see a reason pardew would risk a player prone to injury today while willo was on the bench and plus his performance on sunday with colo while we had ten men was so good. who knows.

    Tavernier’s been dropped and deservedly so. That guy’s nearly worse than Simpson. Abeid should’ve been starting today.
