I was duped this morning into believing Newcastle had been sold.
It was a tweet supposedly from Sky Sports – but it wasn’t – I’m sorry about that, and I have deleted the article – but it’s out there.
Oh my – where’s that shovel to dig a hole for me to disappear into.
As far as reality goes, Newcastle play Luton Town this afternoon, and we think Rafa will play a relatively strong side since we haven’t had a game in five days and our next game is against Swansea next Saturday at home.
Chancel Mbemba – could get start today
We are going to assume that young Freddie Woodman will get his first competitive start in goal.
Here’s the team we think will start this afternoon.
Manquillo Mbemba Clark (c) Dummett
Ritchie Merino Hayden Murphy
That’s a strong side, and both Yedlin and Lascelles are rested as they played in all four of the festive games.
What would your team be for today?
Whoops – I am having a bad day – looks like Mbemba is injured
