Joelinton, Longstaff, And Manquillo Start At Manchester United



Here is the team Steve Bruce has named for this afternoon’s match at Manchester United. It has four changes from the draw against Southampton.

Bruce has made a few surprising changes in this one. Isaac Hayden returns to the side but it appears he will be on the right side of the back three. Javier Manquillo comes in at wing-back for Jacob Murphy.

Sean Longstaff retains his place in the midfield with Joelinton in for Callum Wilson. It appears that Paul Dummett is still injured, which I had missed. Joe White gets a place on the bench.

This is the team Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has picked for the hosts with Ronaldo in the starting eleven.

Newcastle will need to be at their very best to pick up anything today. The unspoken aim may be to keep the damage to a minimum.

However, the lads could be inspired with the eyes of the footballing world on this match. Let’s hope they can rise to the occasion at Old Trafford and spoil Ronaldo’s return.

Howay The Lads!

    surely if we keep this 5 at the back then lewis, if he has any chance of making it, has to come in for ritchie. we can rightly say ash is tight but before wilson’s injury we had 55M worth on the bench in lewis and Joel.

    Has there ever been a time when bruce has said to his players ”go out and play without fear.” he made Newport sound like Barcelona.

    The sad thing is that no matter what the score is today, Bruce will get a free pass from “management” because they’re “one of the teams we don’t expect to compete against”.

    Whole thing is bollocks from top to bottom.

    OK going to watch F1 sprint race.

    Bruce Absolutely ignored Ritchie until he led a rebellion. Now Ritchie is undroppable purely because Bruce is scared and wants to keep dressing room from stringing him up. Ritchie hasn’t been that good for years, bar a good spell when Rafa converTed him to RWB. If we flogged him he’d be treading water in Championship at best, same for Clark.

    Is he shoving Hayden into CB or going to a back 4?

    I suppose if he goes to a 4 and we get murdered he can say Told you so.

    C’mmon now lads. If you can’t get a result against this Man.U. outfit after the massive backing you’ve received in the transfer window from Mike Ashley, you should take a good look at yourselves, and so should the manager.

    It’d be crazy if Linton could shoot properly.

    Why can he never shoot the ball properly? Doesn’t he know you have to hit the meat of the ball.

    Richie knows how to hit the meat of the ball.

    Can he not take Linton under his wing and show him the ways of the meat
