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.

    You named five Globe goers whose names I don’t recognise. I can only assume they drank in the bar from which I knew a few but not all – especially the midweek regulars.

    I’d get into the bar to play darts early evening but I mainly used the lounge – again for a couple of hours mid-week evenings and whenever over the weekends.

    The Globe, now student accommodation I believe, used to be a real local pub. As you said happy days, sadly gone.

    Mos def.

    I followed him (Potter) when coaching Östersund in Sweden. He took a talented team with no management what so ever, into a great one. This with people of different ages, with zero winning culture, people from different nationalities and cultural back grounds, and sick travelling distances to matches.

    The team being from Norrland and being the most northern one in Sweden’s top flight, where football has nothing in popularity to hockey sais a lot.

    Beating Arsenal away in EL was a statement.

    After he left, Östersund is tipped to go down after a couple of bad years.

    Their footy is not recognisable.
