Longstaff, Sterry, Darlow, Kenedy, And Muto Start At Nottingham Forest


Rafa Benitez has just announced the Newcastle side to take on Nottingham Forest at the City Ground in the second round of the League (Carabao) Cup tonight.

As expected Schar and Fernandez are in central defense with Ciaran Clark at left-back to give Paul Dummett a rest.

Sean Longstaff – starts tonight

Here’s the team.

It’s good to see the two local lads – Sean Longstaff and Jamie Sterry – get a start and both played well in preseason.

The fans seem confident enough we can win this game – wonder who will score the goals for us?

Maybe Joselu again …

Two-thirds of the fans think we will win this game and get through to the next round.

    Like the look of that line-up. Should be enough experience in there, but with some younguns on show too. Lovely.

    A good cup game could be just what the team needs.

    HWTL, HWTF & HWRB!

    just a suggestion but the protesters maybe when they go away games could go outside that citys sports direct too and protest. might make it more effective than protesting only in the newcastle one

    Hope to see some application tonight. I’d like to see Atsu show that he’s pushing our wingers for a first team spot. Also looking forward to see what Yoshinori can do over 90. Joselu should be more confident than he ever has for us. Sundays header was class.

    Ibiza,
    Not sure if it’s a good thing or bad thing but it looks not much worse than our first eleven?

    Vask…Hi. I was really impressed by Joselus header. Didn’t know he had it in him. Not sure he did either tbh 🙂

    Jail…I think what the lineup lacks is that extra bit of quality / consistency. Ritchie, Lascelles, Shelvey (not saying that’s all, just can’t be bothered to develop the point further). Overall it’s not too much of a hit, but these players don’t deliver as consistently as those mentioned and some are brand new and finding their feet.

    Unfortunately I’m going to have to record it as I have other stuff to do tonight, so once I go off shortly, won’t be back on blog till very late or even tomorrow. Oh well, that’s one of the downsides to having a life. 🙂

    Ibizatoon he did look rather surprised at himself when he scored.

    Re : quality

    Perhaps longstaff will show something tonight. Muto as well, I have a good feeling about him.

    Ibiza,
    That’s the worry I’m on about, although true grafters and up for the cause, our star men aren’t exactly world beaters, take away the Rafa factor and we have a bang average squad.

    Yes, I’ve been seeing her a while, so I’m confident.

    I know what you mean regarding a break, whilst you’re on can I ask your opinion on Rafa in or out Richard Keys and do you believe the world is flat?

    Hope you’re well

    Jail…KO is just around the corner. We’ll likely have enough discussion to play with without the Rafa vs squad quality discussion. I think most accept we have an average squad, it’s a case of different ideas to get the best out of them.

    I do get your point though. I still think we should have enough for them tonight. Despite all the talk, we’ve not been too far off with regards to the actual scores so far this season. That’s ultimately what counts, not the stats.
