Could This Be Newcastle’s Team For QPR?


We think that Rafa Benitez will make around four changes to the side that beat Derby County on Saturday 2-0 – we just don’t know what those changes will be.

But since we have a game at home to Wolves at 3:00pm this Saturday afternoon Rafa is going to have to use the squad, and he has said he will do that.

daryl-murphy

Daryl Murphy – could he get a start?

Here’s a possible team for tomorrow night’s game at Loftus road with five changes from the side that started last Saturday.

Sels
Anita  Lascelles (c) Hanley Lazaar
Hayden Colback
Yedlin/Atsu Diame Gouffran
Murphy

We’re not sure Rafa would want to make too many changes to the back four but there’s two there with Hanley coming in for Mbemba and Lazaar getting his first start in place of Dummett.

Rafa seems to like DeAndre Yedlin so he may get a start on the right wing, but he could also start Christian Atsu there in his usual position.

Rafa has said today that Christian has impressed him in training.

But we think Yedlin is more likely to get the start because he tracks back and works his socks off for the side and that’s really important in away games.

And we’re pretty sure Issac Hayden will start in one of the two holding midfielders – and maybe Jack Colback will keep his place and Jonjo will have a rest.

It’s probably more likely that Aleksandar Mitrovic will start up front rather than Murphy – but we’d love to see the experienced Daryl Murphy get a start.

After all he’s very used to the Championship having played the last five seasons in the second division at Ipswich.

That’s our best shot at the team.

What would your team be for tomorrow’s game?

    Really hope we sell Colback and Dummett in January. They are becoming the Williamson and Simpson of NUFC.

    I’d be very surprised if Dummett ever gets dropped away from home Ed.

    To everyone, and I am being serious here….

    Kets is either the most repetitive troll the blog has ever seen, or he genuinely has a form of autism. The latter would actually explain most of his socially an morally questionable behaviour,and also his obsession with wanting certain players out of the squad. I am not making fun of autism, by the way. I really do think it might be the case.

    Markacus,
    I agree with both posts @ 9&10 and especially without making fun, that kets has some kind of mental illness.

    Simpson is still useless. The premier league was poor last season. Leicester will struggle this season. They have a great attack but selling Kante was a disaster.

    Jail.

    Yeah. Trouble is, i’ve taken the p1ss out of him in the past for some of the tripe, so i have inadvertantly been mocking an ill person all along.

    Kets, if you are indeed mentally ill, i take it all back. If you are just trolling, then do one.

    confirmed Rafa bingo

    Sels
    Anita Mbemeba Lascelles Dummett
    Colback Shelvey
    Ritchie Diame Gouffron
    Mitrovic

    That’s my actual prediction but wouldn’t it be great if he was to pick a completely different eleven and still thrash QPR, that would make a few sphincters loosen up in the rest of the league. 🙂

    Don’t know if this is true but all of the goals qpr scored this season, they have all been from set pieces, so if that is true then i just hope colback times his tackles right tomorrow.

    You could chuck in Darlow, Hanley, Gamez, Tiote and Murphy and it would still be a good team.

    Jayphoto, saw your summation of the players from a live view on Saturday. I was also in the home end and I would say you were spot on with your critique.
