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!

    Another Darlow super save

    Why do we stand off their players around our box?

    Get someone on who can keep possession and relieve some of this pressure, and heaven forbid maybe even create something at the other end ffs

    Down to 10 men after Frasers 2nd yellow.

    Bruceless will probably bring on Joelinton so we will be down to 9.

    Bruceless, Ashley. Barnes and Bishop OUT!

    Bruce has lost the dressing room.. it’s clear as daylight. Fraser couldn’t wait to go off and nobody in the team made a case for him.

    I don’t want to hear that we’re working towards something from Bruce ever again. It’s dismal and a few short, inconsequential periods of attacking against bigger teams is just a fig leaf – he knows it doesn’t matter if we lose in those matches so he can tell us to press a bit more and be get more players advanced.

    He clearly doesn’t have the nous nor balls to develop an attacking mentality and system as the default.

    His words are as empty. An opportunist who says whatever it takes to get him through the day, merely tools used to manipulate, so he makes the most of tiny positives like the 2nd half at Arsenal, making it out as if it’s part of some long-term progression when it’s a mere abberation.

    Fraser off.

    One option is to put on Miggy and invite a red card tackle from them

    That should secure the 0-0 draw Bruce wanted
