Newcastle Lose At Preston 2-1 In New Away Strips – N’Soki Keen To Come To Newcastle


Newcastle have lost in their third pre-season game of the season 2-1 at Preston which we were able to listen to on the Newcastle United website.

Newcastle took the field at Deepdale in their new away strips which we think look very nice. They again played in the 3-5-2 that was debuted against West Ham.

Newcastle have played in a 3-5-2 for both of their preseason matches since Steve Bruce joined the club. They have had to get creative in putting players in some unfamiliar positions to make this formation work.

We are wondering if they do plan to keep using this going forward as they are currently heavily linked to three wide players in Allan Saint-Maximin, Jarrod Bowen, and Harry Wilson.

Steve Bruce started the game with Rolando Aarons playing as a striker alongside Yoshinori Muto with Javier Manquillo as the right wing-back and Matt Ritchie on the left.

It was a Jonjo Shelvey 39′ free kick that opened the scoring in a tepid first half.

Newcastle would change nine of the outfield players to start the second half leaving Woodman in goal and Fernandez at the back as the only starters remaining.

Bruce kept the formation the same but this time had Murphy playing the left-wing back position. New signing Joelinton played upfront with Miguel Almiron just behind him.

Joelinton won a penalty with his first touch of the game as he was brought down after making a nice turn.

But it was Miguel Almiron who would take the penalty and have it saved by Declan Rudd.

Jamie Sterry would give away a penalty after handling a cross in the box. Really poor from Sterry as he raised his right arm to knock down the cross. Paul Gallagher was able to then score from the spot in the 60th minute.

Joelinton would then concede a penalty as he stuck his right foot out and struck a Preston player. However, we think it was quite harsh as he has gone for the ball in a 50/50 with the Preston player.

All in all, it is just a pre-season match and we are not too worried about the performance. It looks like Newcastle are in advanced negotiations for two French players in Allan Saint-Maximin and Stanley N’Soki.

It also looks like N’Soki is very keen to come to Newcastle.

It also doesn’t look like Allan Saint-Maximin got onto the pitch for Nice in their friendly at Cardiff.

    Joelinton won the pen and should have taken it. It’s a friendly and his first involvement so he should have been able to have a crack at that pelanty. Would have been sweet as a nut.

    I’ve seen Bowen play a few times but I would in no way claim to be an expert on him. I understand the comparisons with Ritchie in that he is a very hard working player, protects his full back and doesn’t hide if he’s having a poor game. I’d say Bowen is a less creative player than Ritchie but more of a modern inside forward type and would bring more of a direct goal threat.

    Hoki Koki – good with either foot. Up front or in the hole. Be a great signing.

    £50 million left?
    By my reckoning we’ve only spent 12 million net so should be 78 million left! Or is the usual shite we get every window?
    In his interview in the Mail he says Rafa wasn’t keen on Joelinton at £40 million but we got him after Rafa left and “ I hope there’s one or two more to come”! Hope! Shouldn’t he be making sure?

    There is that as well.

    Personally always thought he’d be best deployed or the rah rah right.

    Aye, I found it very curious he was in a suit and tie, he nearly looked naked without his carrier bag.

    He’s a leech

    Newcastle in talks with PSG re signing N’Soki
    but apart on agreeing the fee!
    FFS Charnley’s so out of his depth obviously having to mediate with Ashley!
    We are a joke of a club. Rafa must be thinking what a waste of 3 years trying to build something and we are right back there again!

    There’s been a brawl on a P&O ship returning from
    a cruise to the Fjords.
    Several passengers locked in their cabins
    Was there not a blogger doing that cruise ?
    Magtoon or Martoon I cannot remember which one
