Bruce Makes Six Changes In Our Predicted Team For Blackburn



This is the starting eleven we predict Steve Bruce will name for Blackburn tomorrow. It has six changes from the win at West Ham.

In this team, Bruce has all five new signings on the pitch at the same time. It would be debuts for Ryan Fraser and Mark Gillespie. With Karl Darlow taking the helm for league matches, Gillespie is likely to get the nod tomorrow. Bruce has already confirmed Fraser will play.

Ciaran Clark was the other Magpie Bruce stated would start during his press conference. So he teams up with Newcastle iron man Federico Fernandez at the back. Jamal Lewis gets a second straight start at left-back with Emil Krafth making his first appearance of the new season on the right.

Isaac Hayden teams up with Jeff Hendrick in the middle. Hendrick was out wide on Saturday but could get a chance to show what he’s got in his natural position. With Matty Longstaff still struggling with a thigh problem, Hayden gets the call once again.

It’ll be very interesting to see which attackers Bruce names tomorrow. He’s already said Fraser will make his debut so we have him on the right. It’s a tough call for the other three positions.


Both Sean Longstaff and Miguel Almiron didn’t start at the weekend so we have to believe Bruce will want them involved. Longstaff played his best football last season as a number 10.

Getting off to a good start will be crucial for Sean’s confidence. So we have Longstaff in the middle and Almiron out on the left. Bruce generally doesn’t play Almiron there but he did very well on the left under Rafa Benitez.

Bruce will likely rest Andy Carroll and that could also be the case for Allan Saint-Maximin. We don’t have Matt Ritchie in the team but it wouldn’t surprise us if he was involved. However, he’s had a calf problem so could be rested as well.

Up top, it’s Callum Wilson once again leaving Joelinton on the bench for a second straight match. Right now there’s just no room for the Brazilian. He’ll get his opportunity at some point but Bruce needs to field as strong a side as possible to get past Blackburn.

    Well I think Ashley has made a splendid choice of barrister to have in his corner. Much rather have it that way than against him.
    Nick De Marco QC of Blackstone Chambers is ranked as one of the leading Sports law barristers and the foremost practitioner in football disputes. He acts for football clubs, federations, players, and agents in commercial and regulatory disputes before FIFA, CAS and various domestic forums. He has appeared in most recent high-profile cases in football in the UK and has a significant international sports practice. In cricket, boxing and sailing he acts for the regulator, and, in other sports, sits as an arbitrator. He writes and lectures on sports law.

    Would ashley prefer 100m compensation or would he prefer 305m for sale…..hmm I wonder!!

    Good move by him this morning, anyone thinking the takeover is dead needs to give there heads a shake. You don’t make moves like this just for compensation, the cost alone with no guarantee of winning wouldn’t make it worth his while!! The goal here is to get change of ownership

    All summer we have accused the PL of being corrupt by allowing themselves to be run and influenced by Qatar and beIn Sports.

    Media thought we were just being bitter. However:

    Today, the head of beIn Sports has gone to court in Switzerland charged on multiple counts of corruption.

    Wouldn’t want to be up against Nick DiMarco – certainly won’t take any prisoners !. He’ll just wield the full extent of the law and make things really really uncomfortable for Masters and Co. No doubt they are bricking themselves already.

    The biggest problem with the PL, is that for years there has been all this talk of how much money they have been making. Selling TV rights has brought in over £4 billion in recent years.

    They don’t answer to anyone.

    When you have that much money, and no accountability, corruption will always find its place at the table.

    From the BBC website
    “All non-televised Carabao Cup matches until the end of the fourth round will be made available for supporters via an online streaming service.

    UK-based supporters of Premier League clubs will be able to buy £10 match passes on the competition’s website for ties not broadcast on Sky Sports.”

    Good afternoon all, interesting goings on with Ashley and co atm.
    No way would Ashley spend 40M on the training ground unless he knows something we don`t.
    He has been here 13 yrs and NEVER bothered improving the facilities at Benton, but now, while trying to sell the club, he injects all those monies into training ground improvements.
    Hmmm, very strange indeed.

    Does anyone genuinely think Ashley is taking the PL to task so he can push the takeover through, or is it just for compensation.

    Previously, fans suspected Qatar had a leading football organisation in their back pocket.

    Later, it was proved, when it was exposed that Qatar was paying upwards of £5 million per vote to get the World Cup from FIFA.

    Since they bought the World Cup, 1200 workers have died building the stadiums. Think of that number. All of these people were flown into the country and had their passports taken off them until the build was finished. They died before that happened. 1200.

    That is how the PL now answer to. That is who they listened to above fans of the English game. That is who they allowed to stop investment in the NE. That is who now runs the game in this country.

    My predicted lineup:

    ____________Gillespie_____________
    Krafth____Lascelles__Clarke___Ritchie
    Murphy__S.Longstaff__Barlaser__Fraser
    _________Joleinton__Almiron

    Give everybody a chance to get up to speed and show what they can do in the 4-4-2.

    Likes of Murphy and Barlaser, we need to see what they can bring in a competitive match and whether they look up for challenging. If they perform well its’ either good for our squad or it well help attract interest.

    I think Ashley’s taking the PL to court for both himself and to get the takeover through.

    The idea PIF have walked away is bollocks. Just because they haven’t launched their own legal bid. Same people were saying they had walked weeks ago when it turns out they didn’t.

    Ashley will have told them you sit back and I’ll go in to rumble. He wants this badly.

    My concern is the PL will have lawers equally as corrupt as them and financed by Qatar.

    You can imagine them now referring to the Keegan trial “So Mr Ashley is it true you were on trial in 2009 for repeatedly and intentionally misleading the press, public and the fans of Newcastle Utd”

    Whatever dirt Ashleys lawers can find then we must remember it works both ways. Just praying Ashley has some hard evidence to back up his case and make the PL pay. Or best case scenario they appeal it out of court to keep it out of the public eye and greenlight the sale.
