Carroll, Clark, And Manquillo All Start At Sheffield United



This is the team that Steve Bruce has selected for tonight’s match at Sheffield United. It’s just one shocking change this evening with Andy Carroll making his first start of the season for Joelinton. Wow!

This is the team that Chris Wilder has picked for our opponents.

We are a little taken aback by the lone change since Andy Carroll was not even available this past weekend. However, Steve did hint at rotating his squad with the heavy schedule over the next two months.

Everyone else is the same from the draw against Manchester City. It’s a pretty strong bench with Sean Longstaff, Joelinton, Fabian Schar, and Christian Atsu. No room for Matty Longstaff this evening, however.

Let’s hope the lads show vast improvement from the last away match at Villa Park.

Howay The Lads!

    Why can’t we sustain possession. Its so frustrating to just watch the opponent play 90% of the time.

    We’re really struggling to grab hold of the ball. Impressed with Sheffield United they’re a really threatening side. We’re riding our luck here.

    Sorry to say but Carroll’s just too slow across the ground to be starting games at present. Maybe it’s just lack of match fitness that’s making him look particularly slow, but right now he looks like he can only be effective when others have sapped legs and have slowed down.

    Everybody in navy blue looks a bit sluggish, even the two flyers on the wings.

    Need to get to HT 1-0 and then make changes early 2nd half. Need more intensity from the front to get hold of the ball and press.

    It’s just horrible to watch us play. It’s embarrassing to see us have 20% possession almost against any team.

    I don’t know If it’s just the setup Amazon have gone with but Jesus this is the worst atmosphere I can remember at a game in a longtime. You’d think it was a friendly.

    We’re a good half bad half team. So, logically, the good half is the next one 🙂

    Bruce needs to tell them to push up and try and keep the ball, I don’t expect much though

    Terrible half very lucky to be winning. The team just can’t make a pass and are so deep making it easy for them to play.

    problem is obvious

    too many slow players in the middle

    3 CB’s, shelvey and hayden. not quick enough in possession, not enough athleticism

    Leading but we scarcely deserve it. Glad to see ASM off the mark from an unlikely header, taking inspiration from Carroll.

    Joelinton or Gayle needs to come on for Carroll pretty soon in the 2nd half. Just too slow to get to the ball to hold it, press or get into position for headers unless the ball is pinpoint to him.

    Need to up it across the pitch. Not even a customary flying counter to speak of. Both Almrion and ASM have hardly got out of 1st gear at any stage.

    Watching on prime is a bit disconcerting as there is a 1 minute delay and I’m getting info on my phone before I see it on tv! Lol ?

    Munster

    Wheres your fair and balanced critique of our surrendering of possession to a newly promoted side?

    Or is the excitement of being in the Oposition half for 3 minutes per half to much for you to take.

    Come on post something, I need a laugh.

    Terrible and embarrassing. Doesn’t matter who we play. Barcelona or Villa, we play like an Inferior team with 11 men behind the ball and just allow the opposition to dominate and dictate play.

    We can’t even enter their half.

    BREAKING NEWS!!!
    Due to Premier League pressure, Newcastle United have to change their name to Newcastle United Hoofball Club.
    As we don’t have any interest in passing or trying to play football, we do not deserve to be labelled a football club anymore..
    Shelvey, Clark, Dummett have changed their professional status to hoofball players. How can we be so poor to watch? We are the nr1 in not having the ball. How on earth aren’t we in the bottom place?

    This is where Bruce gets exposed when he doesn’t know how to react when we’re getting overrun in midfield, where we only have Shelvey. He should take off Almiron and put Longstaff in the midfield!
