Fraser, Hendrick, And Wilson Get Starts At Sheffield



This is the team Steve Bruce has named for this evening’s match at Sheffield United. Bruce has made six changes from the defeat at Arsenal over the weekend.

Newcastle Starting XI: Darlow, Yedlin, Fernandez (C), Schar, Clark, Dummett, Hayden, S. Longstaff, Hendrick, Fraser, Wilson

Subs: Dubravka, M. Longstaff, Ritchie, Elliot Anderson, Murphy, Almiron, Carroll, Joelinton, Gayle

As expected Bruce has given recalls to a few of the players he rested at Arsenal in Federico Fernandez, Fabian Schar, and DeAndre Yedlin. However, we are a little disappointed that Matty Longstaff has been dropped.

Bruce has also kept Karl Darlow as his first choice keeper while Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser make their returns to the team. Both Jonjo Shelvey and Jamaal Lascelles didn’t make the squad today with their fitness issues.

This is the starting eleven Blades boss Chris Wilder has settled on.

Sheffield Starting XI: Ramsdale, Bogle, Basham, Egan, Ampadu, Osborn, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, McGoldrick, Burke

Well, we should learn a lot about the state of Newcastle United after this one. Sheffield have yet to win in the league after their historically poor start to this season. As luck would have it, they may have picked up some confidence with an FA Cup win at Bristol Rovers just a few days ago.

However, Newcastle need a result with all three points being the obvious aim. We’ve not won in seven matches in all competitions. Hopefully, the Magpies are the ones who get the elusive win tonight.

Howay The Lads!

    I’ve had no vaccination letter yet and I’m 73 with no underlying conditions. We’re led to believe that mid February’s the expectation.

    Fingers crossed it’s a step in the right direction

    Please debate.
    30 million for Longstaff or 40 million for Joe.
    Who is the better buy?

    Bruce has gone too far this time.

    The slowest player in the squad playing right-wing. S. Longstaff and Hendrick should not be in the starting eleven.

    Sheffield United play the exact same formation we do but do it with so much more verve if they had Wilson instead of us we would be where they are with them probably safe already

    Fine margins

    Longstaff is too slow.
    You cannot coach pace.
    The whole midfield could form Geriatrics Utd.

    Uncertain @132 No, please see my earlier post. This starting 11 is madness, but if it does what he wants and keeps it at 0-0 until our bench full of attackers pile on, we get what we need, 3 points.

    You’ll never “get” Bruceball if you limit your thinking to such archaic limitations such as formations, tactics, positions etc.

    Bruceball cant be tamed like that. Brucey is playing 4D chess with a side heloing of chaos theory
