Atsu, Krafth, And Willems Get Starts Against Watford


Here is the squad Steve Bruce has announced for the today’s match at St James Park against Watford.

Steve Bruce makes just two changes from last week’s win against Tottenham. Both of those are forced with Jetro Willems coming in for Matt Ritchie and Christian Atsu in for Allan Saint-Maximin. Emil Krafth has passed a late fitness test and retains his place at right-back.

It will be the same 5-4-1 formation that lined up last weekend. We expect a strong performance from the lads as both Miguel Almiron and Joelinton return to the side after they missed out in the Cup tie against Leicester City.

Here is how the visitors will line-up as former-Magpie Daryl Janmaat makes his first appearance in the league for Watford today.

This is a massive opportunity to go into the international break on a high. Let’s pull for the lads today in the hopes they can get the full three points, and make it two wins on the trot in the league.

Howay The Lads!

    No surprises in that line up. Will be interesting to see whether we are sat deep, whether we play more of a front 3 from the off, changing to the 541 defensively rather than a 541 transitioning to the 343.

    Or whether we stick to the 541 but player a higher line.

    Quite happy with line up and bench. Only moan I have is the bench. Why does Bruce bring an extra central defender and not an extra winger.

    3-1. Defensive lineup from Watford. They lack confidence and will loose today.

    We will struggle against team that are equal footing to us. This season will be a relegation battle all the way. Wins against the big six are not what will safe us from relegation.

    We have no attacking nous.

    Newcastle 1 Watford 3.

    Inside St James’ Park, feels awesome to be back home.

    Janmaat at LB for them. Almiron will to give him the run around, exploit the space the lazy git leaves and finally get a goal.

    Fancy us to get 3 goals today. Joelinton, Longstaff, Almiron – 3-1 victory!

    Leicester, who spent a large part of the 21st century in the lower leagues, have a lot less fans than us, are not as wealthy a club and have a less wealthy owner, have two players worth £48M sitting on the bench. We’ve got Mike Ashley 🙁

    I do but I prefer to use the PC on match days.

    Someone usually comes up with a decent stream, if not I’ll listen to the commentary on NUFC radio.

    Again cheers.
