Newcastle At Crystal Palace – Team Prediction, Injuries, and Poll Result



Here is the team I am predicting Graeme Jones will name for this afternoon’s match at Crystal Palace. It has three changes from the defeat to Spurs.

This formation is a variation of the 4-3-3 that has been deployed in recent weeks. Though it harkens back to when Jones first arrived and a diamond formation was implemented against Everton.

Both Crystal Palace and Newcastle are close to having a full collection of players available. Graeme Jones indicated during his press conference that Martin Dubravka was close but today would be a bit too early for the goalkeeper.

Newcastle Injuries

Martin Dubravka (foot), Paul Dummett (calf)

Crystal Palace Injuries

Eberechi Eze (Achilles), Nathan Ferguson (Achilles)

Our Poll result is not too bad considering we are facing a Crystal Palace side that has played very well of late. While 46% expect Newcastle to pick up nothing today. A third of those who voted are predicting we pick up our first win of the campaign. That would be some moment for Graeme Jones.

How will Newcastle Do At Crystal Palace On Saturday?

    Will be very interesting to see how this one plays out regarding formation and starting line up etc.

    Will Jones put the correct players in their correct positions?

    Stay tuned.

    I’d like to think that when Bruce cleared his desk, he took away the mallet for bashing square pegs into round holes.

    Thanks for your post last night. Sorry didn’t reply earlier as kindle was playing up. Yes I really loved Dublin and spent 5 great years there. As Munster alluded to it’s probably massively changed since the days I used to get into the disco at Jury’s hotel in Ballsbridge and go shopping and having a coffee and meal in Grafton street. Hopefully will get there again this April for a 3 times postponed Simple Minds concert!

    Yes that link was indeed the match I went to and Chippy Brady’s goal brought it all back to me! Good times. I think Mirandinha had either signed or was about to sign for us back then.

    Family wise it’s been tough as my wife recently got diagnosed with cervical cancer with no obvious symptoms at all, so bit off a shock and I’m seeing too much of hospitals at the minute but the prognosis is positive as it was caught very early. Would advise all your wives, daughters, girlfriends, nieces etc to get a smear test as it literally could save their lives.

    Back to football it’s going to seem very strange today but hopefully the new manager bounce, or more the old manager leaving bounce can get us something.

    I’d go with…

    Darlow
    Manq Lascelles Fede Lewis
    Hayden Murphy
    ASM Miggy Fraser
    Wilson

    Willock hasn’t done enough for me to get a place when he isn’t scoring.

    Fraser deserves a run of games.

    I like that team and formation. Cant’see them dropping Lascelles, even though he has been poor lately and isn’t a ball playing CB that Jones wants to see.

    Manq Lasc Ferd Lewis
    Hayden Longstaff
    Asm Joe Frazer
    Wilson

    Have Wilock and Almiron to come on with fresh legs 30mins to go.

    I’m picking Joe in the centre as he’s the best at link up play we have!

    Having Frazer Asm and Wilson making runs off him.

    I’ll take your shit but he’s the only one showing any guts or heart atm.

    Interesting to see if Fraser will respond to Jones. Obviously seemed a bit of an issue with bruce, especially after the Sheffield utd fiasco. It would be good to have some extra pace up front with St Max.

    I know what a huge shock it is to your life when your wife is diagnosed with cancer and l hope she fully recovers. The good thing is it can give you a whole new perspective on how fragile we are and to live each day to the full and enjoy and cherish the time you spend together.

    Best wishes to you both.

    OP

    I wouldn’t be against playing Jo in the centre of midfield.

    He is better winning headers there than on the wing, he can have more time on the ball by dropping deep, and he is starting to use his size and weight far more effectively in holding the oppo off.

    Jo is one that a new manager could make into a key player if he can find the best position for him.

    I like the line up Laccelles and Ritchie should be dropped but will Jones do it, a bit of a test of his beliefs perhaps.

    He deserves a run to let us see what he can do.

    He’s never had that chance whereas as others have been played time and again and shown they rarely produce sweet FA.

    I love Miggy but he just doesn’t have enough end product, Longstaff has done nowt for a season, Jo – until recently – has been played purely because he cost £40M.

    If I was Fraser I’d be totally pi$$ed off. And I’ve heard he is,

    Bills

    I’ve been saying for a long time we could do a Diame with Joelinton.

    Diame was ineffective as No10 but seems to relish having more of the pitch and options ahead of him when MF. Had Pogba in his pocket to the point Pogba was subbed.

    Joelinton is more of a midfielder than he is a striker, just needs coaching and should study Yaya Touré

    OP

    Where Jo has found the Prem tough – which many players from other leagues do – is the pace and how quickly you are closed down.

    He’s getting far better at dealing with the closing down but he lacks pace and that is a huge problem as a ST in the Prem. That’s why he could make it as a centre mid where his strength on the ball, technical ability and passing range could make him a commanding player.

    A good coach might just work wonders with him.

    Interesting to hear quite a few giving Joe some praise on here. Must admit he has been one of our better players recently, not hard mind, maybe he could save the new owners a few quid after all if the new manager gets another 10% out of him playing in a more suitable position. I think he would be better suited in CM, bit like a Pogba type.
    GO JOE.
