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?

    Have to give Dean Smith a little credit, I guess. This strategy has kept them in the match for 25 minutes.

    I worry when we start Anderson, but really this kid has good senior experience, and lots of time on the training paddock with the group, and undoubted talent and work rate. Haha, but still I worry. Seize the day son!

    Anderson has been pretty good considering he’s been dropped straight into am unfamiliar role with not a lot of notice

    His movement into space is very good always has time on the ball which is a quality that you either have or you don’t have

    Fewer touches near their box would be an option. It may be too crowded for that “perfect” pass. Just make the keeper make a save, get the ball at him.

    Loving the domination, though

    We have all the possession but need to move it around quicker to force an opening. We’re too predictable right now.

    Obviously Leicester playing to stop us from scoring and hoping to catch us on the break. I don’t think they will be able to keep it up for the +90 minutes. We will score this half.

    We need to take more shots. Like Trippier there, instead of taking a clear shot he passes it again.

    Looks like a nil nil draw all over. We are not going to break down this 5 man defence with our current tactic.

    We’re in total control of this match, but we’re over eager at the top end, need to calm it down and play it in.

    The longer this continues without a goal, the more emboldened they’ll become, and then on come Maddison and Barnes and it’s anyone’s points.

    Just doing my bit here to heighten the tension, lol. No need to thank me.

    But seriously let’s have a goal.

    But you said we would lose 1-3.
