Ba and Cisse Named In Strong Line-Up

Newcastle have named their strongest pre-season line-up so far to take on Braga tonight.

Cisse and Ba team up together with the likes of Tiote, Colo, Jonas, Simpson, and Marveaux on display.

Will be very interesting to see how they are organised on the pitch, though I’m guessing Jonas will be joining Cheick Tiote inside, while Marveaux and Sammy will be operating out wide. Though there again, we could see a return to a 4-3-3 which was favoured by Alan Pardew towards the end of last season to great effect.

The full line-up is; Harper, Simpson, Coloccini, Tavernier, Ryan Taylor, Marveaux, Gutierrez, Tiote, Sammy Ameobi, Cisse, Ba

Having seen the line-up I have say I’m really looking forward to the game and it remains to be see whether Yohan Cabaye will feature from the bench.

Great to see Demba Ba and Paiss Cisse  linking together up front, can’t see our opponents keeping a clean sheet!
