9 Changes To Newcastle Team For QPR – As Expected


The Newcastle starting eleven for the game tonight at home to Queens Park Rangers has just been released.



That’s the same team we had (almost) but we had Diame in for Perez in the number 10 spot and Colback for Hayden but obviously Rafa thinks it’s too early for Mo to come back in since he returned from Gabon.

Perez and Hayden are the only two men who started on Saturday to keep his starting place, but Diame is likely to make a sub appearance in the second half depending on the state of the game.

Jack Colback is not even on the subs bench.

This is what Rafa has said about the game tonight:

“Queens Park Rangers are doing better now. They have had some good results, and it will be a tough game – like the majority of them are in the Championship.”

“The manager has experience, and – watching them – they change systems in some games, and they will be quite difficult to break down.”

“We have been doing well for the majority of the season, and hopefully we can carry on with this form.”

And here’e a tweet of good luck from Christian Atsu – our man still in Gabon.

Three in four fans think we can win this game tonight.

Hope we can do it – we need the win.

    Same team as vs Rotherham

    Sky are showing the game at 7.30pm; little point in looking for streams before then.

    Rotherham frustrated the hell out of us first half.
    Be prepared for more of the same tonight.

    Jib “it’s a shootout” Jibberish.

    Other posters are having to take up the strain and assist in correcting your gaffes.
    Clearly not manageable for one poster to keep up with such a volume of blooping blunders.
    Additionally there is work to be done in countering your blog tall tales.
    Bloggers are pulling together.

    Have a feeling we will lose or play very badly today. Not very positive about our chances tonight and don’t really know why. Hope I am wrong.

    You are such a vulgar and coarse fellow.
    anyway you posed the question :-
    Does that make them a bunch of w@nkers ?

    Answer – well no you are the ham shanker for making the gaffes in the first place.

    That’s 5 more bingo points, yahoo!

    However, it looks like I’m not the only one this time. Seemed a pretty straight-forward choice with just potential for Colback/Diame/Mitro to potentially start if Rafa saw reasons for them to get the minutes over Hayden/Perez/Murphy. However, he was on our page this time.

    Bingo -Forgot to add the score earlier. Going to say 3-1.

    Seems most bloggers are going with this team tonight. I want to go a different route but feel we need to play our best players in every game so. No point in resting a few for the bigger game against Derby if we don’t take 3 points tonight.

    Rafa Bingo –

    Darlow
    Yedlin Lascelles Clark Dummett
    Hayden Shelvey
    Ritchie Perez Gouffran
    Murphy

    Hardly any rotation in the backline or midfield recently because my phone is suggesting who to pick next.
