Unchanged Newcastle Team At Swansea


swanseanufc emblem

Steve McClaren has just named his team for the tough game at Swansea today and it’s an unchanged team from last week.

Teams:

Swansea (4-2-3-1): Lukasz Fabianski; Kyle Naughton, Federico Fernandez, Ashley Williams (c), Neil Taylor; Jack Cork, Jonjo Shelvey; Andre Ayew, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Jefferson Montero; Bafetimbi Gomis
Substitutes: Kristoffer Nordfeldt, Angel Rangel, Kyle Bartley, Leon Britton, Nathan Dyer, Wayne Routledge, Eder

Newcastle (4-2-3-1): Tim Krul; Daryl Janmaat, Chancel Mbemba, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Massadio Haidara; Vurnon Anita, Jack Colback; Moussa Sissoko, Georginio Wijnaldum, Gabriel Obertan; Papiss Cisse
Substitutes: Karl Darlow, Steven Taylor, Mike Williamson, Cheick Tiote, Rolando Aarons, Ayoze Perez, Aleksandar Mitrovic

Williamson is on the bench today and there’s no Siem de Jong – which is a surprise – but he’s said to have a slight problem with his shin.

It’s surprising McClaren put Mike on the bench foe Siem, since we have cover at center-back from Steven Taylor.

It’s the familiar 4-2-3-1 formation and this will be big test of this Newcastle side, and we’d like to see the lads a lot better in defense and particularly with crosses.

We need to cut them stop them coming over, and also do better with the crosses.

Former Newcastle  targets Andre Ayew and Bafe Gomis start for the Swans today.

This is what Steve McClaren has said about this game:

“It’s an away test at Swansea who, over the years, are one of the clubs that lower league clubs model themselves on.” “They are a perfect model for coming up through the leagues into the Premier League and not just consolidating, but going on.”

“When they change manager the transition is smooth, and a lot of credit should go to Huw Jenkins – the chairman – who runs the club so well.”

“Away from home is tougher, it’s harder, and that is what I want to see. I want to see the mentality of the players today, dealing with everything that comes with playing away from home in the Premier League.”

“That is one of the things I will be looking at very closely.”

38% of fans think we can win this game.

A draw would be a reasonable result for us today – a win would be a terrific result.

    Bt sport commentary is boring as hell.

    Hoddle knows his stuff but you don’t want to listen to him.

    The less said the better about savage.

    Agree witht the line-up.

    Don’t think Mitrovic is ready to be unleashed yet and can’t drop obertan after his assist.

    Don’t agree witht he haidara hate either. He wasn’t good but he wasn’t bad either.

    You slated Southampton all of last season and were proven wrong at every turn fella and by the way, when making a comment about someone else’s brain and asking if they have one, do try and post a coherent sentence otherwise you are left looking rather foolish

    I’ve heard the saying about not changing a winning team, SM seems to be applying it to drawing as well. I predict at best a draw again this week.

    I thought Lascelles looked pretty poor in pre season when I saw him – he looked incredibly slow..

    Not saying that a pre season match is a fair display of his talent, but he didn’t impress me

    Ok, I’m a fan od SDJs ability and playing style, there aren’t many of his type around, but there comes a point where you can no longer dismiss his injury record and say it’s only a matter of time before he comes good. I’m nearly there.

    We bought him at a cut-price £6m, if we could recoup £5m of that, somehow, I’d unfortunately have to say it’s the right decision. Maybe offer him back to Ajax before the window closes.

    Willo for de jong on the bench only change? Why have 2 cb on bench unless he fancys 3 at the back in 2nd half with a cb cover in case a red card.

    If I was Aaron’s I would be looking for new club. Overran has been useless for years Aaron’s burst onto seen then gets injured but works all over summer getting fit and rips it up pre-season as the teams best player yet gets dropped for overran.

    No excuses overran done one good thing and was defensively horrible so can’t be for tactical reasons as he offered no protection.

    Don’t see how Steve could improve the team

    Mitrovic over cisse (unproven vs proven)
    Aarons over obertan (is there really a gulf between these players? Or is the gulf really that big?)

    Anyone with half a brain (which obviously excludes you Jackbutler) can see the fundamental difference between Southampton last season and this season is their DEFENCE.
    Last season they were the 2nd best team in the league defensively. Unsurprisingly their season was a success!

    This season they sold their best defenders and they are a rubbish side. 4 goals conceded already in two games

    This sums up the problem with having an garbage defender like colocinnin embedded in our defence

    Leaky defence automatically equates to a mediocre football side

    trouble is you said the same about colo the last game and the last 30 games before that, and you will say the same thing about colo the next game and the next all season basically, bottom line you’ve said it all now about colo, there’s 24 other players in the squad why not talk about them for once eh?

    Obertan is overall better at defending then Aarons which is why I think he was started at soton.

    You can’t just drop him even if he did fluke an assist. What kind of message does that send your players?

    “Play, do something good and I’ll still drop you”

    Especially when you have Obertan who clearly has confidence issues.
