Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez has just announced his side for the tough game at home today against Bournemouth.
And it’s the side that finished the game last week as we picked up our very first win of this campaign at home to Watford.

Eddie Howe – Bournemouth’s impressive manager
Eddie Howe has slowly but surely built up his squad, and they are now a very good side in 6th place in the Premier League.
Rafa is well aware that Bournemouth are an excellent side and he thinks they deserve to be 6th top of the league.
This is what Rafa has said about today’s opposition:
“They are doing really well,”
“I said last year when we were talking about Burnley, talking about Bournemouth – teams that have been in the Premier League two or three years – they are quite settled down.”
“Their players know what they have to do. They add a couple of players every year – good players, key players for them – so I think they are getting stronger.”
“And in this case, Bournemouth are one of the teams that are in a very good position in the table.”
“They are playing well, and they are playing with confidence.”
About half our fans think we can win this game – let’s hope they are right.
Howay The Lads!!
