Bruce Names Unchanged Side Against Aston Villa



Here is the team Steve Bruce has selected. It is an unchanged side from the win against Sheffield United just three days ago.

This is who Dean Smith has chosen for the visitors this evening.

A win could push Newcastle into the top ten depending on how other matches go. After Sunday’s performance, the expectations will be for the lads to secure the full three points against a struggling Villa side.

Our opponents are in desperate need of a result as they are enmeshed in a fight for their Premier League status. A win for them and they could be out of the bottom three.

So there’s a lot to play for this evening. Let’s hope Bruce has made the right decision to not make any changes, and this team put in a similar performance to the second-half last Sunday.

Howay The Lads!

    Got to figure Bruce is hoping for us to be quick off the blocks, grab an early goal….or 2 then start switching.

    Anyone remember when that smart, handsome vegetable-eating son of a gun called it all day long? Wasn’t even phased by Brucey saying he’d rotate. Some say it’s a weakness not changing your mind, but me, I just say… What a guy.

    Big ups GT, judging by sunday this was clearly the side he has most faith in out of those currently available.

    What’s to explain? And how is this relevant? You wwnt after the guy for no reason after he’s just started posting. Why are you trying to make this about me? You were out of order mate.

    Seems a bit odd
    Nee games for months then expect to play 2 in the space of a few days
    It’s proper hot too

    There’s a good reason why every team he’s managed has ended up with an injury nightmare

    Anglo,

    It was in reply to a joke made by Insh’Allah. Literally just a harmless comment with no victim.

    It also had nothing to do with Harrogate. This doesn’t justify the way you spoke to them. Why were you insulting them and making accusations? I answered your questions, care to do the same? Seems like you are just trying to shift the blame and avoid the obvious conclusion that you went at them and me for no reason with your baseless accusations.

    It’s all a game of percentages, they all have a higher risk of injury now then 3 days ago, I would have made a few changes

    Had a feeling that he’d play the same team. I think it’ll likely be the same team on Sunday too. Bit of a risk? Probably.

    Will we care if we win both?

    Definitely not.

    Howay the lads.

    Even after only one game back following 3 months off? I would expect a very minor rise in risk maybe, but surely they should all have been well rested prior to Sunday and in top shape?

    unfortunately for Bruce he doesn’t have the luxury of rotating. If we drop points here he’d be hammered by his critics.

    The whole comment about the blog was a joke mate. The whole thing about “them being too aggressive” etc was entirely about the game. Is this what you’ve been basing all your accusations off? Yikes…

    Caulkins piece aboot Gordon, his step dad is something you would never find in one of the traditional papers.

    It was Insh’Allah’s joke mate, and it had nothing to do with Harrogate at all, so in what way was this an excuse to kick off at them and make accusations? You still haven’t answered that one yet. It literally had nothing to do with them.

    toon 22 comes on here to be repetitively negative and gloat
    Vegan comes on to continually embroil himself in arguments.
    These 2 are making you know who look like an incredibly well balanced and sorted individual.
