Krul, Anita, Sissoko, De Jong And Cisse Start In Sacramento


Sacramento Republic FCnufc emblem

Steve McClaren has just announced his side for our third pre-season friendly and second in the US tour against Sacramento Republic,  and Tim Krul starts in goal but still no Fab Coloccini in the side, who remains injured.

Georginio Wijnaldum is on the bench for the first time, and we could see him cone on in the second half of this game.

In fact there are 11 on the bench so we could see a number of changes during the second half to give players a run out.

Newcastle(4-2-3-1): Tim Krul; Daryl Janmaat, Mike Williamson, Jamaal Lascelles, Massadio Haidara; Vurnon Anita, Jack Colback (c); Moussa Sissoko, Siem de Jong, Gabriel Obertan; Papiss Cisse
Substitutes: Karl Darlow, Freddie Woodman, Shane Ferguson, Lubomir Satka, Steven Taylor, Gael Bigirimana, Mehdi Abeid, Georginio Wijnaldum, Rolando Aarons, Yoan Gouffran, Ayoze Perez

It looks like local lad Jack Colback will be captain again, and the formation is the familiar 4-2-3-1 with Papiss Cisse up front, and Vurnon Anita and Jack the two holding midfielders.

You will be able to watch the game here.

Sunderland were beaten 1-0 earlier in the week at Bonney Field so we want to do better than that – and a win would be good.

Comments welcome.

    Obertan with his pace and ability to beat a man confuses every manager but he lacks end product. You see he even confused Sir Alex and made a big signing for him.

    Looking forward to watching us play exciting footballs, in comparison to last season’s hit and hope garbage.

    A great result, fantastic performance and no injuries coupled with the expected confirmation of Mitrovic and maybe Mbemba and then maybe an offer accepted for Abdennour and we could well be looking at the best few days for a long long while.

    Goals and a clean sheet would do me, going for 3-0

    Aymen Abdennour ”likes the idea” of becoming a Magpie

    Well I’m sure the Toon Army “likes the idea” of him becoming one of the best central defenders we’ve ever had!

    Good to see Lascelles start again – he needs the most minutes pre-season to see if he will be able to handle the PL.

    Cant see it giving him too much confidence having Willo next to him mind – would probably help for Colo to be there.

    Abdenmour would be a great signing and he wants to play for us.
    And Mark Knopfler will get some royalties out of us playing his song on match days

    “Why Aymen”

    And the commentators will like him… “Amen Corner ”

    Sounds like he’s a perfect fit for Newcastle

    So far Janmaat showing he is still streets ahead of most others.

    Still lack enough bodies and threat in the box, gods we need Mitrovic.

    Aymen is a player we won’t be getting. Liverpool and Arsenal are following him.

    Been watching for 5 minutes and I already prefer the type of football that I’m seeing.

    However, when you have people like obertan on the field, it completely negates all the good work you’ve done. Loses the ball every time.

    They said Munure was in for Wijnaldum we got him.

    They said Chelski was in for Mitrovic we got him. Fingers crossed

    They say Liverpool and Arsenal are in forr Abdennour We will get him.
