It’s An Unchanged Team For Newcastle At The Cherries


Rafa has just announced the team to play at Bournemouth this afternoon and as expected it’s an unchanged team from that which played so well to beat Manchester United 1-0 last time out at St. James’ Park.

Dwight Gayle – plays upfront again for Magpies 

We want to see the Newcastle players play with the same intensity and passion they displayed last time out – that’s the new standard for this team.

Hopes are high among Newcastle fans that we can get our second win in a row for only the second time this season.

That will take us above Bournemouth in the league on goal difference.

How Will Newcastle Fare At Bournemouth?

    Good news. Finally have a settled team. Same effort from the Man Utd game and a point will be the minimum we take away

    Manquillo on the bench ahead of Mbemba and no Murphy at all.
    Still a settled xi as mentioned, and the same effort and intensity as against Manure and it should be 2 wins a row and a huge step towards pulling away from the mire!!

    Looking forward to this week’s Toonbrother Ritchie opinion piece, for me it will mark the changeover from politics to football. Interestingly the house of commons has banned football talk as it is distracting from the politics.

    Before their recent slip up, Bournmouth were near the top of the form league. Wouldn’t be suprised with any close result. This season we have very rarely been ‘out’ of a game, and results have often turned on a piece of ‘luck’. I am hoping that the belief gained from the Man U game will be the catalyst for more ‘luck’ and better chance conversion in this game. Hence I am going for the prefered result of a win.

    Again hoping for a very big favour from the coach of west brom who i hope will play his best team in an attempt to stop the mighty hudds.

    Our away form hasn’t been that bad so boosted by the Man U win this is a great chance to relieve the pressure.

    Great chance for back-to-back wins here. That Bournemouth team is poor and like Burnley have done much better than their parts imply – would only take Wilson from them into our XI.

    Diame and Shelvey should be well capable of bossing Cook and Gosling (he was useless here and scratching my head as to how he’s still in the PL) and Gayle is due a decent game after a confidence boosting smart assist.

    Ritchie played really well against his former team at St James and cracked the post, so let’s hope he can go one better this time.

    effectively 3 points ahead of Stoke taking into account goal difference with game in hand.

    I’ll be interested to see how Dan Gosling gets on against Kenedy. He’s a decent defender but I hope Kenedy has enough about him to lose him a couple of times. If he gets away Gosling doesn’t have the pace to catch him up. He was another player who I felt was under appreciated during his time with us though others may tell me I’m wrong

    You can’t half call us a multicultural squat – if Gayle is replaced with Slim shady (as eventually expected) at some stage, the starting 11 will all be from different countries – amazing stat.

    I’m happy with the lack of haters, doom mongers and general muppets who generally infest this blog before kick off. Where are they? Have to say I noticed Bladey’s latest post had something missing from the bottom. Is Rafa winning you over Bladey?

    I suppose Ritchie and Dummett could be classed as Scottish and Welsh respectively.
