Dubravka, Joelinton, and Schar All Start Against St-Etienne


Steve Bruce has announced the starting eleven for today’s final preseason friendly against St-Etienne. The lads will take the pitch the new orange third kits. It looks to be the same 3-5-2 formation as Bruce has used in the past three friendlies.

It’s great to see Martin Dubravka back in goal. We also hope to see Jetro Willems and Allan Saint-Maximin at some point today as well. Willems will not get the start to day as Steve Bruce had intimated earlier. Rolando Aarons will take the left wing-back role to start the game.

Today will also see a return to St James Park for right-back Matthieu Debuchy who is in the team for St-Etienne.

    When we have ASM starting wonder how he’s planning to incorporate him in the same team as Almiron and Joelinton.

    Maybe take a midfielder and push them behind two strikers? Or take a midfielder and have two supporting attacking mids behind the one striker like Rafa last year.

    Yea transfers in look good on paper but really we’ve just replaced Perez and Rondon and finally got a LB that we’ve all said we’ve needed for as long as I can remember! I think we need a replacement for Diame but would be happy to see matty longstaff brought into the first team, I would perhaps keep Saivet, he looks like there might actually be a half decent footballer in there, higher quality than ginger jack at least

    Charmless seems to have told the new lads a canny tale about the project. As you say, it’ll have been the training centre drawings (probably well thumbed by now) he’s shown them but how does he explain the wheelie bins and paddling pool? New and radical medical science as developed by NASA?

    Pretty much. Still lacking depth in certain areas. Essentially, just replaced rondon and Perez with Joelinton and ASM like you say.

    I actually like the starting 11. Apart from Aaron’s at wingback, and jolington who I haven’t seen anything of yet. Also the bench could do with a bit of strengthen, but thats always been our problem for years.

    Anybody know what channel you can get this game..

    Now reports that N’soki deal is off after failing to agree personal terms. Don’t think anyone is surprised seeing the Jetro is in now.

    I see the player Boudebouz there. He was, along with erdinc and gameiro was what Bas Dost is to us past couple seasons.

    He’s finally playing at St James Park.

    I wouldn’t mind more investment into the u23s, if that psg kid sissoko and the inter Milan forward come in that’ll be a solid window

    Good looking line up, would be nice to have some better replacements to cover for injury but think the only ones that have that are in the top 6

    Someone said earlier that Maguire going to Man U might mean Lascelles off to Leicester, but Brighton have just signed Adam Webster for a club record, so I can see Lewis Dunk heading to Leicester instead.

    Leicester got some big money for Maguire, and will drop a fair chunk of that on Dunk, meaning Brighton were confident of spending big (for them) on Webster.

    Hopefully that keeps Lascelles out of the transfer chain on this one 🙂

    Hi Geordieton
    Started the supporters club back in 1995 when I first moved over and used to go there “The little Waster” but he packed it in and the bar is closed now. Interesting bloke though as he was pure Maltese, never been to Newcastle yet for some reason spoke like a true Geordie? Nowadays I watch all the games at home but keep getting over 2-3 times a year.

    Paully – people have said it’s not available in the U.K., and I’ve tried here in the US too, so it must be exclusive to those in France. I have a VPN for the UK but sadly not France.

    Aarons playing LWB by the looks of it. From the little I have seen of preseason, it looked like Aarons was playing very advanced.

    Judging by the bench, Bruce must see Dummett as a CB. Stange as Bruce brushed away claims of Clark leaving saying that playing with 3 CBS means they only have 5 CBs overall which will all be needed. If Dummett is seen primarily as a CB, Bruce has 6 CBs.

    It could be a case that Bruce has told a white lie to keep a hold of Clark. If so, Bruce seems wise to the workings of the club already.
