Steve Bruce Can Make Many Changes Tomorrow Night – And The Side Remains A Strong One



Games will be coming quick and fast this season, since it still needs to end on 23rd May after a late start.

The season kicked off about a month later than it usually does, because of the coronavirus pandemic, and the late finish to last season.

We got off to a terrific start on Saturday, with a very convincing 2-0 win at West Ham, but we still expect Bruce to change that side for tomorrow night’s game at home to Blackburn in the 2nd round of the League Cup.

Players like Gillespie, Krafth, Clark, Dummett (if fit), Longstaff (S), Ritchie, Almiron, new signing Fraser, and Joelinton could all start tomorrow night.

And the team would be almost as strong as the one Bruce played on Saturday, which shows the extra depth we have this season over last season.

Steve Bruce – will field strong side tomorrow night

Here is Neil’s team for tomorrow night and it’s a strong one:

This is some of what an upbeat Newcastle manager Steve Bruce said about tomorrow night’s game during his press conference this morning.

“We’ll take the League Cup seriously but we’re playing a lot more games together.”

“We have a squad, now. We had seven on the bench who would have got in the team last year.”

“I will make changes but I expect, with our strength, for us to get through.”

Results are everything in football, and we must try to go through to the next round tomorrow night, a defeat would be unacceptable after Saturday’s great performance.

Over 85% think we will win this game, so a defeat would not be good, and that’s an understatement.

There’s also a very decent chance we can have long runs in both local cups this season.

Maybe even win something this season.

Nah, I’m getting carried away again.

🙂

    Jail, give ower man! There’s no evidence, just a suspicion from some.

    No, I couldn’t really care if this is the second coming of Jib, I trust the Harrisons to run their blog and police it the way they want, which leaves me free to post without long-running feuds developing.

    And yes, I’m sympathetic to scott and anyone else who faces prejudice and bigotry daily, but I don’t think that’s what it was and I don’t think scott does either now, you just scented blood in the water.

    ArtyH,

    Interesting point, i was thinking something similar , especially when i heard that Ashley was forking out 40M on the training ground.

    From NUFC 360
    It is understood that last week there was a meeting between the bid team and the Premier League with the UK Government also understood to have been involved at some level. Again there was no resolution, which prompted Newcastle’s statement. [Jason Burt]

    Ask yourself how someone who’s been banned twice, has the nerve to undermine The Blog’s owner by posting again under yet another name.

    Unbridled narcissism at best or sheer arrogance?

    All the claims about PIF pulling out due to Covid…

    All to save face IMHO, especially when you read this… Quite bullish in relation to money, investments and their general clout…

    I don’t dislike jail in the slightest, we’ve had our ups and downs but he’s a good guy with his heart in the right place, and NUFC front and centre in that.

    I just don’t think the blog needs another witch hunt. If Hexham toon does anything seriously out of order then let’s judge them on that.

    Or let the esteemed Harrisons handle it.

    Then we can concentrate on the actual footy.

    DubaiMicky, this is correct however my understanding is the reason being Apple share price took a hit and dropped. Still some badge to wear that like!

    So who else we likely to bring in this Summer? John Stones loan bid when City bring in someone else?

    Brewster if we can get some extra money in? Supposedly 20mill can get him

    The EPL may not have formally rejected the bid but it may be that Ashley’s legals’ll be arguing that by requiring further information over and above what’s been provided along with assurances from KSA, the application constitutes rejection.

    Just a thought

    Brewster would be a crackin’ signing.

    Other good loan options would be Eddie Nketiah, Ruben Loftus Cheek and Connor Gallagher.

    If AC Milan beat us too Soumare then we should go after their player Kessie on a loan to buy.

    lesh,

    Maybe, we know bugger all, but ashley must fancy his chances of winning bcos those Barristers won`t come cheap.
    He could of course be paying for the court case via the 17M he got from the consortium.
    That is IF it goes to court.

    I’d love to get RLC in he can cover CAM as well, just got some bad luck with injuries unfortunately

    Think that Gallagher is off to West Brom though? I think we need a CB and a Striker personally. Seems to be a lot of options around at the moment though. I hope we aren’t done in the market yet

    A source familiar with previous decisions has told BBC Sport the Newcastle takeover is likely to go through because the Premier League cannot act as moral arbiter on owners. Black circleWhite circle #NUFC #NUFCTakeover

    Ok so why do the PL keep saying ” we offered them arbitration”
    If no decision was made.
    It doesn’t add up.

    I bet the PL batphone to qatar is red hot 🙂

    Let’s hope we have continued success throughout the start of this season so we can just focus on the team. Hopefully something to buzz about while things work away in the background. We certainly haven’t heard the last of it and tbf this part will no doubt be played out in the media as that’s what Ashley’s camp will want.

    Shame about Connor Gallagher. When Palace pulled out I thought we’d have a chance. Hes one for the future.

    Yes agree definitely need a cb and striker.
