Barlaser, Fraser, And Yedlin Get Starts Against Blackburn



Here is the team Steve Bruce has selected for tonight’s Carabao Cup tie against Blackburn at St James Park. It has a whopping ten changes from the 2-0 win at West Ham with Javier Manquillo the only holdover.

As Bruce declared he would during his press conference, he’s made wholesale changes for this match. It comes just three days after our opening Premier League win at the London Stadium.

This is not as strong of a team as we had hoped for but hopefully, it’ll be enough to get past Blackburn. Both Mark Gillespie and Ryan Fraser get their Newcastle debuts while Dan Barlaser is handed a surprise start in the midfield alongside Sean Longstaff.

This is who Tony Mowbray will send out for the visitors. Former Newcastle striker and local lad Adam Armstrong is on the bench to start off.

Newcastle have been handed a generous draw to advance in this competition. A win tonight will see us pitted against one of two League Two clubs in Morecambe or Oldham away next week. Let’s hope this rotated team can get the job done against Blackburn this evening.

Howay The Lads!

    I’m pretty sure he thinks Krafth isnt a wing back, he seems to be trying to always work him in CB.

    He’s rotating the players as there’s more than enough quality to beat Blackburn and he’s still sussing out a couple. Doesn’t have to name the squad for another few weeks yet.

    Likes of Barlaser either plays well which help attract interest and gives Bruce a decision to make or, he doesn’t play well and he’ll be shipped out to the first team that comes in for him, likely Rotherham.

    Only read in the Chronicle today about the new European Conference League, which the winners of the Carabao Cup enter next season. Surprised I hadn’t heard of it before now.

    I’ve always looked at him more as a CB than a WB.

    Australian Pie, hope that’s the case. I assumed it was a 4231 formation but 442 would help Joelinton

    Surely we have young CB and LB that could stake a claim? Seems unecessary playing 3 RB across the defence just asking for trouble!

    Well they’ve played better football than anything West Ham offered in the 90mins at weekend.

    We need to hold it when we get it instead of looking for the counter as Yedlin did a minute ago.

    I very rarely miss a game, but a tenner for a bloke with a camera?

    Looking forward to your match report after our win.

    And video highlights if you can provide them.
