This Is Newcastle’s Best Team For West Brom


We do have a number of injuries – Chancel Mbemba, Paul Dummett and Jack Colback are all out for tomorrow’s game and we also have players like Siem de Jong, Kevin Mbabu, Vurnon Anita, Sadio Haidara, Gabby Obertan and of course Tim Krul still out.

Again we are being ravaged by injury as we are every season and people are still calling it bad luck?

So it looks for the second game in three that we are short of defenders and players in general – and of course Jamaal Lascelles is unavailable when he made matters worse by getting himself sent off in the last minute of the 3-0 disaster on Wednesday night at Goodison Park.

Paul Dummett – another hamstring injury

There is not much choice for left back – and we would assume that Rolando Aarons will play there again tomorrow and in will come Steven Taylor at center-back for his first game since late August as he has now finally recovered from his hamstring problem

We don’t think Seydou Doumbia is fit enough to start because he trained today for the first time according to Steve McClaren.

Here’s the possible best team we can field for tomorrow

Elliot
Janmaat Taylor Coloccini (c) Aarons
Sissoko Saivet Shelvey Townsend
Wijnaldum
Perez
Subs: Darlow Tiote Gouffran Mitrovic Doumbia Riviere U21 player

The subs bench is not going to be strong and we ran out of fit players, so presumably an U21 player will make the bench, although having three strikers on there also seems strange.

For such a critical game how come we are again so ridiculously short of players?

And watching Steve McClaren’s  press conference today it’s not clear to us that Steve fully understands the gravity of the situation Newcastle are in – and he reiterated the squad was too strong to be relegated and we’d try to win against a very good West Brom side.

So let’s get the win then!

What would your team be for tomorrow?

    We are ridiculously short of players because we never buy any defenders. We prefer to waste our money on useless French midfielders by the half dozen. Harrumph. Is that curmudgeonly enough for you lot?

    Carver on 5live tonight saying that he always thought we needed defenders for the 5 years he was at the club. He said they were crying out for a big CD and a left back. Just shows you that no one with any football brain is in charge at the club. Unbelievable.

    Maclaren is as clueless as a nun’s fanny and if three points aren’t secured tomorrow he has to go, otherwise we are going down.

    Steve Mac has as much tactical nouse as a nun’s fanny. Seriously, we continue to be the laughing stock in world football and we will be playing championship football unless that joker is sacked tomorrow.

    What a complete shambles! 3rd worst defence in the league with a month to reinforce the back four and they don’t sign anyone? Ashley finally decides to spend the last nine years profits on new players and leaves it up to a couple of halfwits like Charnley and McClaren? We deserve to go down!!

    Coloccini injured?

    McClaren is under pressure following the 3-0 midweek defeat at Everton and another loss tomorrow afternoon will send alarm bells ringing inside the boardroom.

    His cause isn’t helped by a defensive crisis which leaves him with no recognised left-back.

    And Starsport can reveal that skipper Fabricio Coloccini picked up an injury during the defeat at Goodison Park which would normally rule him out.

    But with Jamaal Lascelles banned, Chancel Mbemba out for up to a month and both Paul Dummett and Jack Colback missing, McClaren has no choice but to send out his crocked skipper.

    I’m not sure anyone will notice!

    Could do with some more down-votes lads. Reginald winbar had his way with us on Wed again and its looking like a similar story unfolding for Sat.

    Think hard before voting.

    We should retain our trophy, awarded for being the biggest laughing stock in world football, with no trouble at all this season. Spending the most, dropping the hardest. We blow every other club out of the water.

    This Blog has descended into farce.

    I want this Townsend idiot banned ..and his IP address noted ..and also any multiples he uses Banned ..Your answering him and responding to him and he feeds off that ..ignore him until I get rid of him ..the Blog has now become a haven for Childish Behaviour and Childish people

    Townsend is the final straw for me …ruined any morsel of credibility the site had left ..

    Ban the Idiot ED . now.
