Newcastle United have released the official team photo for the 2019-20 season. What a great group of lads we have here.
The club also tweeted a 2-minute video of the players getting ready for the photoshoot. It’s an uneventful video though we think we see Allan Saint-Maximin rubbing his hamstring at the :38 second mark. He also appears to be walking gingerly after the photograph is taken but knowing Allan we are sure it is for dramatic effect.

We also see that Henri Saivet is involved in the group photo and he’s smiling away. The Chronicle are reporting that Jack Colback and Jamie Sterry declined to be involved. All three players did not get squad numbers this season and therefore are ineligible to appear in the Premier League.
We think it’s a nice photograph and it’s good to see some of the players coming back from injury amongst their teammates. It’s also a kind gesture on the club’s part to offer the lads who did not make the squad an opportunity to be involved.
