One Change – Sean Longstaff Starts Against Leicester Tonight – Plus High Fan Expectations



The big news is that there is only change from the Newcastle side that walloped Brighton 4-1 and that’s Sean Longstaff starting in place of the injured Joe Willock, out for the season with a hamstring injury.

It’s great to see Sean back.

We need only draw against Leicester City tonight at St. James’ Park to qualify for the Champions League for the first time since Sir Bobby Robson was the manager back in 2003.

And we are sure the lads will want to win the game, the last home game of the season, and then have a real celebration after the game.

But a caution – we cannot allow second bottom Leicester to spoil the party tonight after such a great season.

And here is the Leicester side.

A massive 86% think we can win this game tonight.

How Will Newcastle Fare Against Leicester City?

    It will be interesting how we cope with 5 defenders.

    As mentioned earlier, I predict a shock loss today.
    Leicester will come at us hard as they will give it their all in their relegation fight.

    The worst time to play relegation sides are at the end when they absolutely need wins for survival.

    Our leaky defence will continue conceding.

    Newcastle 1 Leicester 3.”

    Is it correct that you said before the Brighton game we would not win any of our remaining games… and subsequently pretended to be happy you were wrong.

    Given you predicted we would lose this game weeks ago how is it a “shock loss”?

    No need to reply we all know the answer. Enjoy your evening.

    If there is a weakness with Bruno, it’s his temperament sometimes

    Thankfully Bruno kinda pulled away after making contact. Saved a red probably.

    Still disappointed about Joelinton. Was so looking forward to Big Joe, Bruno, and Longstaff working together today.

    Bruno will be shackled now in a sense for the rest of the match now that bite and aggression will have to toned back from his game.

    Hmmm, Joel out, Bruno struggling physically at the tail end of a long season, and Sean perhaps not fully fit either. Bit nervier about all this, but we have started well.

    Leicester are really clogging things up when we have possession. Might need a few shots from outside the box today.

    Oh wow, that was close from Bruno and Wilson.

    Absolutely no panic I’m this match, wrre supremely comfortable, even if we don’t score many, Leicester look a million miles away from getting a sniff at a goal.
