Our Predicted Team For Brighton Has Bruce Taking The Easier Path



This is the team we predict Steve Bruce will pick for Sunday’s match against Brighton. It’s the same team and formation that picked up the 2-0 win at West Ham last weekend.


Bruce has a few tough decisions to make but he’ll probably stick with the same side as the one from Saturday. He made 10 changes for the Carabao Cup win against Blackburn.

While a few Magpies impressed on Tuesday, it may not be enough to unseat anyone from the season opener. Leaving out Miguel Almiron is the toughest choice for Bruce. Andy Carroll was immense against the Hammers and is likely to get another start.

Ryan Fraser was outstanding on Tuesday as well but is still regaining full fitness so he’s any easier choice to leave as an impact substitute. Jeff Hendrick put in a sterling display on his debut so to drop him would be harsh.


For the time being, Bruce has plenty of options in attack, which is a good problem to have. He can easily bring on either Miguel Almiron or Ryan Fraser should the team need a change.

Mark Gillespie did himself no harm after his excellent debut on Tuesday. The thought may have crept into Bruce’s mind to hand the Geordie his Premier League debut.

But that thought will have been a fleeting one as Karl Darlow has just signed a new deal and had a clean sheet against West Ham. Also, there’s a quick turnaround for the Carabao Cup. So Mark will get his next start on Wednesday at Morecambe.

In fact, with the Morecambe game coming just three days after Brighton, Bruce’s decision to keep Miggy and Fraser on the bench is an easier one.

The rest of the team is a no-brainer for the head coach. Hopefully, we’ll see a performance similar to the one at the Hammers. A win will be the first time Newcastle have won the opening two matches since 1997.

    black stripes on the back of the shirts make it hard to read the name and number.

    Hendrick has the long hair, Carroll is the big one with the ponytail, Lascelles has the captains armband and Wilson is the other one.

    Why then are stripes the traditional clothing for prisoners?

    A bit of good news from the Chronic

    ‘….. Sources could not confirm why this [the disappearing web page] happened but did tell ChronicleLive that Blackstone are still acting on behalf of the club and Ashley in their dispute with the EPL

    Good morning lads n lasses, nowt much happening today apart from getting a call from the mechanic saying he managed to save my headlights, so no worries about having to find another pair, which would have to be at least 18 yrs old to fit my motor.

    Anyway, who needs names on the back of shirts to identify players? Unless you have twins playing in the same team its a doddle, that`s if you watch the team regular enough of course.

    Ideally we ship out the deadwood and sign Max Aarons, Willems, Origi/Brewster on loan with option to buy and possibly another CM. Doubt that will happen. Even so it’s been a good window, much better than expected.

    Why then are stripes the traditional clothing for prisoners? Because somebody bought a job lot of NUFC strips from one of Ashley’s ancestors!

    I have given up having faith in these close sources involved in the club, we all know how accurate they were a few months ago don`t we, utter bollocks, they are stealing a living imo.

    I think a white box with a red number is the best option for shirt numbers

    Who cares about the names and numbers on the back of the shirts, its about the players who are performing in those shirts and the results that matters, if you dont know who the players are without seeing thier numbers or names on the shirt then perhaps your not really a fan of that particular club.
