    Newcastle (A) 27/10 Build-Up & Match Thread

    We seem to look better with 3-4-3 at the moment. Don't ask me why, we just do.

    ----------------------------------Patricio-----------------------------

    ----------------Boly-------------Coady-----------Saiss----------------

    Doherty---------------Dendoncker--------Moutinho-------------Jonny

    --------------Traore-------------Jimenez------Jota-----------------------

    2018/19: D 1-1 (H), W 2-1 (A)
    2016/17: L 0-1 (H), W 2-0 (A), L 0-2 (A, LC)
    2011/12: L 1-2 (H), D 2-2 (A)
    2010/11: D 1-1 (H), L 1-4 (A)
    2003/4: D 1-1 (H), D 1-1 (A)
    2002/3: W 3-2 (H, FAC)

    With Bennett out, it's 'team picks itself' territory. Only really Moutinho's partner up for debate

    I know he's played tonight, but assuming everyone there is fit, then I'd go mini Rubes instead of Jonny.

    The right hand four (as long as Adama doesn't have one of his standing in one spot games) is starting to develop & the Jonny/Jota partnership works - this formation gives us a bit more go forward element than the 3 in midfield as we don't really have a real shoe in player to be the advanced midfielder.

    Interesting that Neves (who was possibly our most celebrated signing) does not get in this
    This year we will mainly be conquering Europe

    (paused for the moment, but hopefully to be continued)

    I’d start Neves ahead of Donk. The rest of the side as DW states.

    I totally agree Jinks - Neves or Donck is the only choice. Although Kilman has certainly put himself into contention.

    Start Adama and Diogo.
    Attack from the kick off
    Don't get Coady isolated 1 v 1
    Prediction 24th January: 14 games to go: 6 wins, 5 draws, 3 defeats - final points 57 when the league finishes in May 2023...

    Well theres some simple patterns to our play which as long as we follow we can threaten in both systems.

    - Traore is not an attacking threat at WB in 5-3-2 if we have to dictate the game.

    - We cannot play 5-3-2 without Jota/Neto/Traore as a forward.

    - 5-3-2 doesnt really work when were not playing on the counter.

    - Neves cannot play in a 3-4-3

    As were away next. Its not the end of the world which way we go. Id be 3-4-3. As Saiss has to play CB then has to be Donk and Moutinho in the middle. Rest of the team picks itself.

    If its 5-3-2 then Doc RWB and Jota/Raul or Jota/Cutrone (then we can actually see what hes about in a more suited role), but Raul is our best player so if fit needs to play.

    I disagree with Neves not bring able to play in a central 2. He just can't play with Joo in a central 2. It has to be with Saiss or Donck.

    Dan's team for me. Vinagre off the bench if we need more pace.

    Much as Traore fully deserves a start, i still feel that he is better as an impact player, whether than means he starts RWB and moves further forward, or whether he starts from the bench. But numerous times he has had more impact when moved further forward late on (City) or brought on to play there (last night) rather than starting (Southampton.)

    I still think i'd go 352 with the option to go 343 if we need to, rather than being a busted flush if we are 343 and 1-0 down.

    So, for me.

    RP

    Doc
    Boly
    Coady
    Kilman (unless Bennett is fit)
    Jonny

    Moutinho
    Saiss
    Neves

    Raul
    Jota

    If things aren't going well bring Traore on for Neves or Saiss and go 343

    DW's team for me but with Neves instead of Moutinho, who I'm concerned we're going to burn out.

    I don't buy into the rush to throw Kilman in right now based on one okay game. He got himself closer to being in contention last night, but Saiss at the back for me

    Bruce: "It is mightily difficult to play Thursday & then Sunday. The big teams are used to repeatedly playing in Europe. It can be difficult & I hope we can benefit from it. Let's hope they're tired & bruised & have been delayed 5 hours! But Wolves are a very good side"

    No doubt the opening part of that was done in jokey kind of way but that should set some Wolves fans off on twitter...

    I'm no Bruce fan but it is clear as day from his 5 hour delay comment he was trying out some comedy

    Lawro thinks we will lose

    Charlie Nicholas thinks a 1-1 stalemate.

    We haven't matched any result against any team from last season so a win would change that. I reckon 2 2
    Carole Baskin is to blame.

    Some Twitter noise (or nonsense) that Boly has broken his ankle in training today.

    I'm not sure we'd even train today? As we'll probably fly to Newcastle.

    I don't buy it, just putting it out there.

    I dunno. They'll have been in yesterday, they were in on the Friday after Besiktas as per Timbo's article on recovery and this is a shorter trip back (with a much longer journey to the next league game). We wouldn't travel late to Newcastle today.

    Yes, would definitely do a light session given yesterday would be more of a post match warm down.

    Let's wait and see, usually it's bollocks, just takes one person making shit up for others to repeat, but with Bennett out, Kilman inexperienced and Vallejo not serviceable we'd be in the brown stuff without him for a period of time

    Donck would have to come into the equation. I've seen him play at the back twice for us and he's looked very good.

    As I say I don't buy it.
