Bordeaux v Newcastle United Reserves
Alan Pardew had already indicated he was going to play the likes of Ranger, Bigirimana, Ferguson, Marveaux and Sammy Ameobi but he has gone the whole way and named a team without a single player who is considered one of the first eleven.
Elliot, Tavernier, Williamson, Perch, Ferguson, Bigirimana, Abeid, Ranger, Marveaux, Shola, Sammy Ameobi
However, five of those first eleven are sitting on the bench if needed.
Subs Krul, Coloccini, Simpson, Anita, Amalfitano, Campbell, Cisse
It is open to question under what circumstances they should be called upon as I’m guessing the worst thing that can happen tonight is getting more injuries as opposed to what the result will be.
