This Could Be Newcastle’s Best Side For Watford

8:02 am, Friday, January 8th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 73 Comments

Because we are not in Europe and  are out of the League Cup,  we expect Steve McClaren to play his strongest side in each of the remaining games of the season and that includes ties in the FA Cup.

Tomorrow we are at Watford in the 3rd round of the FA Cup and we expect Newcastle to field the strongest side they can muster for that game.

FA Cup Emirates

The team that played so well at Arsenal last week is the side we expect Steve to field tomorrow at Watford.

Janmaat Mbemba Coloccini (c) Dummett
Sissoko Tiote Colback Perez
Subs: Darlow Mbabu Lascelles de Jong Gouffran Thauvin Riviere

On paper that’s a strong side especially with Georginio Wijnaldum in the number 10 role where he looked good last week at the Emirates.

Cheick Tiote also added some steel to the center of the field with a terrific performance for us last Saturday.

But he’s on four yellow cards so he cannot pick up another yellow tomorrow and miss the game at home against the Red Devils on Tuesday night – an almost must win game for us in the league.

The best we have done under Ashley in the FA Cup in the last eight tries is the fourth round  three times.

In 2008, 2010 and 2012.

Two in three fans expect us to go out at the first attempt this season – and that would be the fourth time running we have failed at the first hurdle.

    Be very interesting if Perez is left out for some unknown reason … So he isn’t cuptied?
    I’d like to see mbabu given a start and dummet in for colo.
    Put siem in number 10 for first half and wini for second
    Thavin needs a half too not 3 mins .
    Don’t think putting these guys in would constitute a “weakened ” team and what have we got loose?

  • 2 Belfast // Jan 8, 2016 at 8:26 AM

    That definitely won’t be the team.

  • 3 kimbo // Jan 8, 2016 at 8:26 AM

    Does it matter what team we put out we will get beat.Headlines… We were excellent but!! Headlines from Mcfool. It is really sad that we cannot expect to beat Watford.

  • 4 jarnytoon // Jan 8, 2016 at 8:27 AM

    Whilst I want a good cup run, I would be of the opinion that I would rest some players with the Manure game on the horizon.

    I’d drop Dummett and start Mbabu, drop Perez or Sissoko for Thauvin and perhaps drop Colo for Lascelles.

    Colo’s slow and pap in the air, which isn’t what you want against Ighalo & Deeney.

    Thauvin actually NEEDS some gametime, plus he offers real pace and trickery.

    With Mbabu, he would actually be an ATTACKING threat from FB. Dummett is a solid 6.5 every week, but is nothing spectacular going forward.

    Still see Watford winning 2-0

  • 5 Lilongwe Geordie // Jan 8, 2016 at 8:30 AM

    In an interview Deeney said that Colo was the toughest defender he had come up against this season.

  • 6 Belfast // Jan 8, 2016 at 8:33 AM

    Watford will also make a lot of changes.

  • 7 sing in the corner // Jan 8, 2016 at 8:44 AM

    He must’ve been pished.

  • 8 Mag52 // Jan 8, 2016 at 8:45 AM


    With two games against us coming up over the next few weeks, I’m thinking that might be a bit of craftiness from Deeney.

  • 9 Lilongwe Geordie // Jan 8, 2016 at 8:45 AM

    He said it a few weeks ago.

  • 10 jazzyp // Jan 8, 2016 at 8:47 AM

    He’s having a laugh mate. He had a field day against Colo in September when we played em at home.
    The Watford keeper that day threw the ball out rather than kick all game. And rather than go and attack the ball, Colo just backed off every time and let Deeney bring it down and do what he wanted.
    Colo and Cisse were shocking that game, Infact Cisse was booed off at half time hence being subbed.

  • 11 nufc 11 // Jan 8, 2016 at 8:50 AM

    Mbabu rb janmatt rm Aaron’s on left like to mbeama cm see If it’s in him to play that role all we need is tiote to miss man utd with Anita injured.

  • 12 jazzyp // Jan 8, 2016 at 8:53 AM

    A lot of stuff circling today Re Shelvey. Still undecided whether he would be a good signing or not ??

  • 13 sing in the corner // Jan 8, 2016 at 8:54 AM

    Jazz yo
    Exactly! That Watford game was one of the few games I went to last year. Colo was at his most shockingly poor that game. Looked last key he was allergic to yellow. Mind you he was not alone.

  • 14 Lilongwe Geordie // Jan 8, 2016 at 8:55 AM

    Not at all. Deeney was forced to drop deep. He had a decent game because our midfield was awol that match. The goal he set up was because we had no midfielder and he brought the ball way out. Other than that Colo was comfortable and Deeney was quiet. Most of Deeney’s touches were in the middle third, he barely got a kick near our goal.

    If I remember right, that was the day we tried both Sissoko and Gini centrally, which was the big problem.

  • 15 sing in the corner // Jan 8, 2016 at 8:57 AM

    Jazzy p that meant.
    And for me Shelvey is the priority to get in from the names I have heard bandied about. Second would be a central def and a maybe a full back,either side.

  • 16 jazzyp // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:10 AM

    Agee the whole team was poor. And I’m no Colo basher like some on here but he gave him way to much space.
    I personally couldn’t believe the size of Deeney, he looks like he borders on the chubby size cos he has such a massive frame, And yes there was a big gap between Defence and the midfield.But Colo just let him do as he pleased.
    When I’ve got back from a match I always like to watch it back through match of the day, And my thoughts didn’t change as that was the thoughts of the regulars I sit around to.
    The trouble now is Colo’s legs have gone and he relies on experience and knowledge of the game, And the Pl is as we know unforgiving which is why he is found wanting in most games .

  • 17 jazzyp // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:15 AM

    Sing in the corner
    Shelvey must be doing something right to break into the England team, And has the experience of the Pl,Which is massively important in our fight for survival.But is he the right man…. I’m still on the fence mate.

  • 18 Jib // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:17 AM

    “We expect Newcastle to field the strongest side they can muster for that game.”

    You can expect what you like , but we have Man U at home 3 days later , a real good opportunity to get 3 points , I know which I’d prefer.

  • 19 sparky55 // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:19 AM

    From previous thread…Townsend the England international who Hodgson rates more than any other winger during his England tenure is expensive at 10 million with all his premier experience?

    You’re having a laf!

    Look at the french sh!te we’ve bought for similar money…IMO 10 million might not represent fantastic value but it’s certainly fair value in the market today and when he’s good he’s very good.

    In the scheme of things 10 million to help keep us up is nowt and well worth the gamble in my view….especially when you take into consideration what’s at stake here.

    Chump change in reality

  • 20 Jib // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:21 AM

    I’d expect Aarons and M’Babu to play and McClaren would be potty to play Elliot with his injury history.
    Quique Flores is expected to rest a few players.
    So should we.

  • 21 Lilongwe Geordie // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:25 AM

    If Colo had followed him into midfield he would have been slaughtered. Colo forced Deeney intoan area that in a team with a functioning midfield the midfield would take over. Our midfield was our worst area off the ball that day, as it often is. The centre back shouldn’t be having to follow him into midfield, unless a midfielder drops in to cover. Ours barely covered midfield that day which was the cause of our woes. Not Colo.

  • 22 Lilongwe Geordie // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:26 AM

    Still, nothing changes the fact that Deeney says Colo was the most difficult to play against.

  • 23 sparky55 // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:27 AM

    Most teams in the bottom half will put out weakened teams this weekend because this year more than any year premiership survival is paramount because of the new Sky deal.

    There’ll be no fairy tales this year…it’ll be in the hands of one of the top 6 teams because they’ll be going for it without fear whereas the bottom half have only got one thing in mind.

  • 24 jazzyp // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:29 AM

    I would expect at least 5 changes for the game Saturday. As you rightly say the Manure game is way more important than a cup run this season simply because the position we find our self in.
    A good cup run would be great for the fans and the morale of the team, But Pl survival should be the only priority at this moment in time

  • 25 sparky55 // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:34 AM

    I really can’t see how any premiership striker would name Colo as a player most difficult play against because most dominate him and have no problem losing him…very strange thing to say especially taking into consideration we lost 3-0 that day.

    You would think a striker naming someone as difficult to play against was because they never had any joy against them…but Watford had a field day that day and we’ve averaged over 2 goals a game conceded for the last calendar year…so methinks Deeney is thinking about someone else and would wager no other striker in the premiership would ever name Colo in such a way…never in a million years in fact.

    We have weak links all over therapy (hence our perilous situation) but there’s no doubt in my mind Colo is the weakest of them all…he is proper sh!te.

  • 26 jayphoto // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:37 AM

    Be shocked if he doesn’t make a minimum of 3 changes. Weve lost the last 3 games without scoring so regardless of playing well surely something has to change?
    Im guessing –
    Thauvin in for sissoko on the right
    De jong for Gini
    Possibly Aarons for gini on the left if fit
    Lascelles for Coloccini
    Mbabu for a full back

  • 27 Lilongwe Geordie // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:39 AM

    We lost 2-1 and Deeney got neither.

    Anyway, got to go. Work calls….

  • 28 sparky55 // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:42 AM

    lilo…hahaha…what fcuking game was i thinking of then??????

  • 29 hibbitt // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:42 AM

    when one link in the chain is weak the whole chain is weak its just a knock on effect we have a weak link in every department hence our problems and or position in the prem

  • 30 barkel // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:46 AM

    There’s no way we’ll play our strongest side. I’d say the following will be getting game time
    Darlow, Lascelles, Mbabu, Thauvin, Goofy, Toney, SDJ possibly see run outs for Steery, Rivi, Marv and Aarons too

  • 31 Jib // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:47 AM

    The 2 -1 loss to Watford was in August and contrary to what true Geordie asserted , McClaren didn’t say we were unlucky he said we were behind other PL sides in our fitness levels.

    That was mainly because we spent most of July travelling for hours back and forth across the USA playing shit teams.

  • 32 jazzyp // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:48 AM

    Darlow for Elliott
    Gillesphey for Janmatt
    Lascelles for Mbemba
    Mbabu in at left back
    Thauvin for Sissoko
    Sdj for Wini
    Aaron’s on the left with Perez and Mitro up top.

  • 33 Lee Charnley Bunga Party // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:50 AM

    I remember watching the Watford game and Mclaren got the formation all wrong in the first half plus Cisse was shocking

    At nil nil we should have had a penalty when Cisse was wrestled to the ground

    I remember we battered them 2nd half and De Jong missed a good chance ….

    Saying that Watford have improved immensely if Deeney and Ighalo start we will be in for a tough game exactly the type of hard working attackers that we struggle against

  • 34 hibbitt // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:51 AM

    barkel they should be no if’s and but’s they should all play the prem has to have priority

  • 35 sparky55 // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:58 AM

    Anyone know what this new years surprise Perez had lined up for us was?

  • 36 barkel // Jan 8, 2016 at 9:59 AM

    I think the first 7 on the list defo will, Steery had bench duty a few times so that’s why I think he’ll get a run. The last 3 are fitness dependant, I think they were supposed to play in the u-21 match that was postponed earlier this week

  • 37 Viduka // Jan 8, 2016 at 10:02 AM

    Just sign king Cahill (timmy!) And Luongo from Qpr… Get ol Remy on loan and we will survive

  • 38 jazzyp // Jan 8, 2016 at 10:05 AM

    Just been reading an article on the unwashed transfer dealings with Kone from Lorient.
    What an absolute sh@t club they are

  • 39 Slank // Jan 8, 2016 at 10:11 AM

    As much as I hate to say it but the FA Cup is currently not our priority.

    Therefore, McClaren could start some players who have hitherto spent lengthy periods on the bench. The problem is that he will be roundly condemned by the local media and many fans.

    My team:

    Mbabu – Lascelles – Colo – Dummitt
    Tiote – Gini – De Jong
    Sissoko – Mitrovic – Thauvan

    McClaren needs to give De Jong and Thauvan a full 90 minutes. We need to see how they perform over the full 90 minutes and not as substitutes.

    Gini needs another run out in the middle alongside Tiote. They were both very good against Arsenal, hopefully it wasn’t a one-off.

    Would like to see Mbabu in the right back position which should be more suited to him than on the other wing.

  • 40 John Tudor // Jan 8, 2016 at 10:12 AM

  • 42 Blackley and Brownlie // Jan 8, 2016 at 10:16 AM

    To be clear, I’m not a fan of Ashley. I just get spurred to challenge misinformation and misunderstanding on any subject rather than to defend Ashley. I think some folk seriously underestimate his stabilising effect on the club with his financial backing and where the club was headed. They seriously overestimate the loss of free advertising. My gripe with Ashley is he appears to be completely inept at making the right appointments and lacks the necessary passion and sensibilities to run a football club. He treats the fans with disdain, although not as bad as did the previous regime. That’s a big gripe. As a result, it’s like the club’s a tray of water that Ashley’s happy to leave in the hands of a couple of clueless clowns.

  • 43 jesperfuglsang - capt'n awesome of the lemon crew // Jan 8, 2016 at 10:19 AM

  • 46 lesh // Jan 8, 2016 at 10:27 AM

    From previous post

    Although £10m may seem high for Townsend, it’s worrying that despite relegation staring us in the face, Charnley’s persisting in haggling over fees. Surely they must see that the potential revenue loss far exceeds the cost of brining quality players in.

    Their greed is astonishing along with their short-sightedness.


  • 47 Rotonda heights // Jan 8, 2016 at 10:36 AM



    Colo (sweeper)

    Lascelles (CB gives us height)
    M’Babu (CB good man marker)

    Janmatt (RWB)
    Aarons (LWB)

    Sissoko (CM)
    M’Bemba (DM push forward)

    Klopp is talking about the January window and the search for a CB:

    “It’s difficult to find quality players. They have to be in a difficult situation in their actual club.

    “We have to try to find the perfect solution. It’s not too easy. But we have our eyes open in the market.”

    Well roughly this time three years ago we were in Bali and there was doom and gloom and we went and signed the five French men who ultimately saved us from the drop so here’s hoping.
    Wtf has happened to Blackley, he hasn’t been this bullish since he stood on the steps of the Gallowgate entrance dressed as a parrot and offering to fight boycotters. He’s gone from slating Costco? and Makro and all things Mashley to now saying he’s the best thing since sliced bread, four relegation battles in eight years and it’s all Fat Freddies fault, three of those battles have been since finishing fifth.
    Carl and Jack Root ??
    As far as I remember carl was an IT friend of Ian Toon who ‘met’ with him occasionally now he’s this geet awld blowk who remembers the steam rising off the back of the bloke in front of him trousers ?
    Jack Root seems determined to talk football which is refreshing change from heaping praise on Belfast and snipi g at me.

    You and your chums have driven so many away by your bile.
    Jack Root and Hail Wor Ashley( what’s happened to him) only have a go at you because you accuse them – your a buffoon. I read that Jack R ask you just to ignore him.
    You more often than not write plain repetitive drivel and I only feel the need to respond to you when you mention me and suggest a link with others. Your going on fifty – grow up and stop seeking attention through others because you simply can’t do it off your own back

    Just ignore me when I occasionally post. Also don’t mention me at 5.31 am in the morning – I’ve got nothing to hide.
    I have not reported your behaviour to Ed. Then you might have to resort to posting as RAJ again.

  • 60 Tsunki // Jan 8, 2016 at 11:15 AM

    Good morning Blackley. I left the argument as I had other things to do, but I noticed you established your hypocrisy by “playing the man” yourself with your “helper” jibes. That destroys your credibility unfortunately. I never said we were a large company, just that the principles are the same, I cannot help it if I have a background in setting up a Ltd Co, running it, retiring due to Ill health and returning to add my experience in running it, it’s just what I do. The details of doing so are far to tedious to qualify here. Your denigration was the mark of what you ascribe to others as the signature of a lost argument. So that’s that.

    Your attempts to deflect and defuse with random extracts was pointless and noisy. The whys and wherefores of a business’ rise and fall add no relevance. The here and now you cannot acknowledge in your quest to portray Ashley as more than simply a good opportunist businessman with only his own advantage at the forefront. Sorry you had to dismiss my simple analogy rather than address it but it stands.

    Time to lay this to rest, suffice to say your previously established reputation migrates easily. I shall ignore your filibustering from now on.

  • 61 Our Toon // Jan 8, 2016 at 11:25 AM


    Why even entertain him? He’s only recently started to look at the finances of the club and has come across information which we’ve all told him about to back his argument up. He’s doing it to get attention and unfortunately he gets alot. Prior to all this he had no clue what he was actually debating, now he know who Chris mort is and Swiss rambler etc. The blokes been trying to win an argument for a week when he had no clue about the main players.

    Either way ignore him and carry on debating with those that wish to debate

  • 62 Blackley and Brownlie // Jan 8, 2016 at 11:30 AM

    If you recall, you played the man many times before that. When I used to play foortball, I would allow two bad tackles on me from one player. The third time I used to give him the ball and then kick the confounded bastard up a height.

    TBH, you had me howling by that time. I wasn’t so much playing the man as ROFL. Classic comedy quotes. No hard feelings fella. Honest.

    As for the debate, I’m not bothered. I’ve said what I wanted to say. Others will make their minds up without the need for me to play the man. If I played the man, it wouldn’t have helped my argument one bit. It was funny though.

  • 63 barkel // Jan 8, 2016 at 11:32 AM


    Seems like a bit of a fifa formation mate! I do like the idea of 3 central defenders with Colo as sweeper tho and wing backs, takes a bit of pressure from Janmaat having to defend! He’s much better going forward

    Tiote must be rested in the fa cup cos we need him for the Man U game and he rarely, if ever goes through a game without getting booked and he’s on 4 bookings now! He was the difference v Arsenal a id be confident of us beating Man U with him holding the midfield. Without him we’re knacked!
    Unbelievable that Charnley hasn’t even got a proper shopping list of players. I mean if they really had Townsend on the list why would they get him for less than 10 million? England international with pl experience! Personally I can’t see why we would need him. Similarly why is Austin deemed expensive at 8 mil when we’ve paid 13 mil for Mitro?
    If they’re waiting for the current squad to come good they’re fools as we all know.
    God this lot are frustrating!

  • 67 Bambams // Jan 8, 2016 at 11:43 AM

    Sitting here searching the Web for a glimmer of hope we are talking to a major target…..Anything concrete….gossip with some foundations.


    I am seriously considering giving one more year, allow the ‘Three Windows’ and if we are still being run in the same pathetic way – go back to watching the Falcons and if I want football then Witley Bay or the Spartans.

    Never felt so unenthusiastic about my club as I have this last six months.

    Anyway popping down to Scarborough to see my granddaughter so not all doom and gloom. Enjoy your weekend you lot.

  • 68 Blofal // Jan 8, 2016 at 11:44 AM

    I will actually be quite angry if we field a full strength side.

    I want to see what Thauvin, De Jong, Lascelles, Mbabu and Aarons can do without the result effecting our position in the table. This is the opportunity to do that.

    We are not going to win the FA cup this year anyway.

  • 69 Jib // Jan 8, 2016 at 11:59 AM


    Watford do not have a very deep squad.

    Our second string should beat their second string comfortably.

    The blood and thunder of a cuptie is ready made for players who want to show their stuff.

    We have a few champing at the bit – Aarons Thauvin SdJ Mbabu Gouffran Lascelles Darlow Toney Roberts and perhaps even Riviere.


  • 70 Tsunki // Jan 8, 2016 at 12:04 PM

    Blackley “playing the man” is your mantra and you died by it; regardless of what others do it’s hypocrisy and there is no comeback.

    You can “howl” if you like in your irritatingly superior way, but your childish deflection is plainly visible. Your clanging is too loud for you to think properly. It obviously bites deep to relinquish an argument but you did that by falling into the trap you set for others, so whatever integrity you attributed to yourself in argument is lost by your own hand.

    I have dispensed with you as a credible poster, and as has been done on another forum, I fail to see any point in engaging you in constructive dialogue any longer after that. I’ve no doubt your bleating and fake mockery will continue unabated but I think I will pass on the invitations to participate in your deliberately contrary bluster.

  • 71 Ian Toon // Jan 8, 2016 at 12:04 PM

    Our Toon- In terms of findinding the time on the blog. I personally go for those that you feel know more and understand better. That’s proven a good policy. Belfast is sound. He is a constant, amusing and has a simplistic but clarity of thought process. He doesn’t pussy foot around. Ideal on a football blog.
    Blackley is a dyed in the wool toon fan and I find his judgment on football related matters generally sound. As is Jib’s – I read he mentioned Alan Kennedy as the best toon LB he’d seen. A view shared by many I have found. They and Bobby B types should not be discounted on a football blog. You can learn from the wise and experienced I you can be bothered.
    I don’t look to get involved in the politics of NUFC and on Blackley’s latest peace de la resistance I’ll wait for the film.

    Charnley’s had tbis years £50m and he blew it in the summer!

    Even then, the stupid idiot didn’t strengthen our defence enough.

    And, did he really need to blow £14m on Thauvin? Was he a priority signing? Maybe Carr had too much riding on Thauvin to postpone his signing until priorities were addressed!

    Some of Carr’s signings have tempted fans to wonder what’s been in them for him!

    My option:

    Janmaat Lascelles Dummet Mbabu
    Sissoko Tiote Wijnaldum Thauvin
    Perez Mitro
