Sean Longstaff, Gayle, Murphy, And Ritchie Get Starts Against Spurs



This is the team Steve Bruce has named for this afternoon’s match against Spurs at St. James’ Park. It has five changes from the 3-0 defeat at Brighton.

It looks like Bruce has made some wholesale changes and is possibly reverting to five at the back. He’s also handed Jacob Murphy, Sean Longstaff, and Matt Ritchie rare starts. Dwight Gayle gets another shot after Bruce confirmed he is in talks for a new contract.

It’s great to see both Matty Longstaff and Elliot Anderson back in the squad along with Allan Saint-Maximin. It is a surprise that Ryan Fraser and Federico Fernandez were both left out.

Here is who Jose Mourinho will send out for the visitors.

Newcastle put themselves at risk of a place in the bottom three without a win today. Fulham are just two points adrift and take on Aston Villa after today’s match.

A reaction from last time out at Brighton is mandatory but with no wins in the last six, we’ll take one anyway we can get it. Hopefully, all these changes will make a difference.

Howay The Lads!

    Strange the 3 players rumoured to hate Bruce the most (Longstaff, Ritchie, Gayle) have been brought in. Is it a last attempt to try to unite the dressing room?

    That’s a little unfair – Sports Direct must be a good shop, have you seen all their 5 Star reviews?

    Is it possible to win today yes ofcourse its possible to beat spurs as they are no , world beaters, my opinion we might fluke a draw,but as long as Bruce is on the touchline i would never be confident of beating anybody, my heart says Newcastle to win, my head says Spurs to win 2-0. HWTL

    Does anyone else think Gayle is playing because our psychopathic owner has offered him an extended contract?

    Bruce has surrendered midfield to play 5 at the back.

    We’ve 2 up top but will never get the ball to them.

    Might as well play with 9 men and let Joe and Gayle get a early bath.

    Joelinton is so garbage it’s unreal 😆

    Why am I watching this when I’d checked out for the past month? Maybe I sense this is a pivotal match in our history and I just need that final confirmation to walk away until Ashley leaves or keels over.

    If they’re kicking Miggy suggest we kick Kane.

    He’s owed some from a few seasons back
