Newcastle To Play Russian Side – Almiron Impressive – Fans Excited

Newcastle United will be off for a summer break to Spain after we have played a tough game at Wolves on Monday night.

Hopefully, we can get something out of that game against an in-form Wolves side who have done very well in their first season back in the Premier League.

It looks like the Newcastle squad will fly to Spain immediately following the game at Molineux.

Newcastle will be out there for five full days and will play Russian Premier League side CSKA Moscow on Saturday, February 16.

The game will be at the Pinatar Arena with a noontime local kickoff time.

It will give a chance for our two new players to integrate with the squad and whatever happens at Wolves our next two games are must-win games at home to Huddersfield and Burnley.

If we can win those two games, it will be an enormous step to being safe this season and maybe even have Rafa stay on as the Newcastle manager.

Here’s the schedule:

Mon 11 Feb   Wolves vs Newcastle            8:00pm
Sat 23 Feb   Newcastle vs Huddersfield      3:00pm
Wed 27 Feb   Newcastle vs Burnley           8:00pm
Sat 02 Mar   West Ham vs Newcastle          5:30pm
Sat 09 Mar   Newcastle vs Everton           3:00pm
Sat 16 Mar   Bournemouth  vs Newcastle      3:00pm 
Mon 01 Apr   Arsenal vs Newcastle           8:00pm

Fans are excited at the news Miguel Almiron has joined us at last, after Rafa has wanted him since the summer of 2017.

And let’s hope he can have an immediate impact.

Miguel said all the right things in his press conference yesterday and if this lad is as good as we think he is he could become an immediate fan favorite.

We hope that’s exactly what happens.

    Aces, I think comparing an FA Cup 5th round match to a friendly is a little like comparing coal and ice. Yes, they’re both solid but other than that they’re completely different.

    Last season, Rafa took out several Academy players with the first team squad, I think he’ll do the same this time round too. You’ll see everyone out there get some game time vs CSKA and I imagine the game will be played with an eye on not causing injuries.

    It’s team building and assessment exercise, not a blood and thunder attritional match vs a group of players looking to prove themselves against the Premier League elite.
