Newcastle Captain Hints At Changes For Burnley



Jamaal Lascelles made his 100th Premier League appearance for Newcastle in the loss at Crystal Palace this past Saturday. This morning the captain gave an interview to NUFC TV about this achievement.

While Lascelles was proud of reaching this milestone, he was obviously not happy with the result of the match. During his interview, he was asked if the team spirit was still high. In his answer, Jamaal hinted at a change in tactics for this Saturday’s match against Burnley.

“Yes, of course. In terms of everyone’s togetherness and the team spirit, it’s really high. If you’ve seen the boys in training, it’s intense.

“We get after each other. We demand a lot of each other, and we’re getting a few lads from injury as well, which is important.

“Hopefully, Jonjo’s fit. We’ve made a few changes. Lads have had to adapt to different styles of play, which might take a while to bed in.

“So hopefully, two games now is enough, and we can get a win.”

It would be a massive boost for Newcastle to have Jonjo Shelvey fit and available this weekend. From Jamaal’s comments, it looks like Jonjo is back training and could be available against Burnley.

Shelvey, who turns 28 tomorrow, hasn’t played since the Chelsea win last month. Having Jonjo Shelvey and Isaac Hayden back together in the midfield could help provide some stability in the middle of the pitch.

Lascelles also spoke about the lads adapting to different styles during training. So the coaching staff seems to be working on some different tactical plans this week. Bruce had reportedly experimented with a two striker system last week but opted against it for Selhurst Park.

However, on the back of two defeats, his hand may be forced to implement some of these changes this weekend.

    i believe that was the original thinking and usa was believed to be the root cause of the out break for many years,
    but more modern scientific research is now pointing the finger of blame at northern China,

    Our towns and cities have been transformed through immigration over the last 20 years. I travel around a bit and they’re all the same. If anything Tyneside has fewer because it’s more remote. I might be wrong about that mind!
    I remember back in the day you only heard Geordie accents on Tyneside; now it’s very cosmopolitan!

    Yes I remember Len White. He often played right wing. I must say I never rated him as one of our greats but that was the end of the era of Jackie and Bobby Mitchell. We had Ivor Allchurch and then George Eastham who was a good player.

    Over the wall? – was that just inside the car park at Gallowgate end on the right, climb over the little metal spikey fence and drop into the shrubery, run along and drop into the Gallowgat steps up to the terraces?
    Used to be a PC stood there guarding it but he had to go sooner or later.
