Bruce Makes Six Changes In Our Predicted Eleven For Bournemouth



This is the team we are predicting Steve Bruce to select for tomorrow’s match at Bournemouth. It has six changes from the FA Cup quarterfinal.

Steve Bruce admitted there would be changes during his press conference this morning. With four games in eleven days, he’ll have to start thinking about giving some players a rest.

In our prediction, Bruce will rest Allan Saint-Maximin, Isaac Hayden, and Javier Manquillo, who have started the last three matches. The head coach is also likely to go back to the 4-2-3-1 formation.

Andy Carroll retains his place, and Joelinton comes in on the left for Saint-Maximin. Miguel Almiron returns to the number 10 role and is one of four Magpies who will play four straight matches in our prediction. The others are all defenders in Danny Rose, Jamaal Lascelles, and Federico Fernandez.

Matt Ritchie still isn’t back to full strength after coming off against Aston Villa, so this is the perfect time to give Valentino Lazaro a game on the right.


Nabil Bentaleb gets his first start since the league resumed coming in for Isaac Hayden. Jonjo Shelvey returns to the midfield after resting against Manchester City.

Emil Krafth comes in for Manquillo at right-back. He still has not played since injuring his ankle at Everton in January.

Of course, Martin Dubravka resumes his place in goal in what would be his 82nd straight start in the Premier League for Newcastle.

How Will Newcastle Do At Bournemouth On Wednesday?

    Even after I’d mentioned that I took it as homophobic the first time and he made no attempt to explain that this wasn’t the intention, he just went straight back in with the same thing? There are a million different words that could have been used there but this guy went for QUEER in block caps with a reference to grinding nuts and I’m supposed to believe that he hadn’t thought about how else this could be taken? Not a chance. He knew exactly what he was saying.

    No, reading that looks like he has been told, thanks but no thanks. I would have liked both him and Rose to battle with Dummett depending on how we are setting up, but looks to me like he isnt coming back

    Adrian Durham and Darren Gough obviously against the takeover and disgracefully skipping over the positive comments made by Masters and Gough again putting dubious comments about the validity of the deal!

    kev …

    listen i’ll try to explain in and around Newcastle we say watch that queer fella he’s micey , meaning he’s a Radgie which means radgie (plural radgies) (Tyneside, Northern English and Scotland, derogatory) A violent or aggressive person. (Tyneside, Northern English and Scotland) A tantrum; an angry mood. (Often as throw a radgie.)..

    so howay kev calm down i’m sure it wasnt meant the way you picked it up …

    As an animal lover myself and also for health reasons I do have empathy for vegetarianism, though veganism not so much. However, there is surely a limit on how many agendas you can bring on to a supposed FOOTBALL site.

    Yeah, it’s a shame.
    As long as he was fully fit, I would have liked to see him stay – he improved a fair bit since the start of the season.

    Queer means strange everywhere, it can also mean bent and bent can also mean gay and gay can also mean happy. My point is , I have no point!

    LGBTQ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (or queer). Find out more about what these labels mean, and what sexual orientation and gender identity are all about.

    Up north, it is a well used word inferring it’s original meaning, and very few use it as an insult as it is too soft for that purpose.
    Many’s the time I have heard someone say – “he’s a queer un” without any connotation as to sexual orientation.
    We also use the term “he’s a bit of a puff” which whilst being an insult to anyone from outside the area, to us it simply means the person needs to be a little stronger in their approach to life.

    Prior to any accusation, one should consider the culture of the accused, not just your own.

    Also the word queer is not officially considered obscene and as such fits in with the comments regulations of this blog (middle right banner) so it would be negated as a reason to remove a member from this blog.

    If the bullying and violence in the school is really getting to you and you don’t want to go back…
    …after the summer break, have a word with your parents and try finding another job away from teaching.
