Darlow, Lascelles, Janmaat, Aaron And Cisse Start At Gateshead


Gateshead FC.svgnufc emblem

Newcastle’s first pre-season game kicks of at the International Stadium at 8:00pm local time tonight and Steve McClaren is starting a very strong side.

Gateshead (4-5-1): Sam Russell; Simon Ramsden, James Curtis, Ben Clark, Matty Pattison; Josh Gillies, Rob Ramshaw, Jamie Chandler, Jimmy Phillips, James Marwood; Jon Shaw
Substitutes: To be confirmed

Newcastle (4-2-3-1): Karl Darlow; Daryl Janmaat, Mike Williamson, Jamaal Lascelles, Massadio Haidara; Vurnon Anita, Jack Colback (c); Moussa Sissoko, Siem de Jong, Yoan Gouffran; Papiss Cisse

Substitutes: Freddie Woodman, Shane Ferguson, Lubo Satka, Curtis Good, Gael Bigirimana, Cheick Tiote, Haris Vuckic, Rolando Aarons, Gabriel Obertan, Adam Armstrong, Ayoze Perez, Emmanuel Riviere

Referee: Geoff Eltringham (Sunderland)

It’s good to see Karl Darlow and Jamaal Lascelles get a game and it’s a big chance for them to shine in pre-season and two of our injured stars last season – Rolando Aarons and Siem de Jong also start.

And we see Matty Pattison is in the Gateshead line-up –  the South African was on Newcastle’s books from 2005-2008 and played around 10 times for us and when Glenn Roeder was manager he was our top young player.

New coach Ian Cathro has been drilling the defense over the last week, so it will be interesting to see how they play with Mike Williamson paired with Lascelles in the center.

Daryl Janmaat starts at right back and Massadio Haidara is finally back from injury on the left side.

Vurnon Anita –  a good friend of Georginio Wijnaldum, who may even be announced as a Newcastle player later tonight, played very well in the last few games of last season and also starts.

The news leaking out is that Georginio has passed his medical this afternoon.

Comments welcome.

    There it is. The 4-2-3-1 formation. A very good formation if you have enough pace on the wings.

    People saying I’m not serious….I’ll give them serious…..I mean look at the material I’ve got to work with. Bloody cabbages on defense…..hard to see a way through here. Good thing it’s Gateshead and not Arsenal.

    Don’t know why we’re arguing over a player that hasn’t signed yet,

    Knowing mr krabs and pennyfeather they’ll be haggling over a goal relegation release clause and then boom!

    Its obvious that in addition to Mitrovic and Ginni we need:

    – two top class center backs (Abdenour, Matip, De Vrej, Van Dijk)

    -Left Winger (Patrick Hermman, Insigne)

    -Left Back (Riccardo Rodreguez, Jetro Willems)

    And we are done.

    If Ashley were to look at the price of those left backs, he’d pass out.

    I agree about jc being captain

    As for me they have to be on the pitch every game

    Lead by example in performance and not get booked and get stupid suspensions

    I would pick janmaat but jc would be second choice but will he play every game as that’s the strongest area of the team and not get booked every 2 or 3 games.

    We need a LB that can cross balls to capitalize on Mitrovic’s great heading abilities. One of those two would provide more assists than most PL wingers.
