Pardew Puts Out Full First Team Against Rangers
No disrespect to Rangers but if Newcastle don’t take them apart tonight then we should all start to worry.
I know Rangers aren’t exactly your typical third tier Scottish team but their League Cup defeat against Forfar tells us they aren’t any great shakes.
Krul (yes!!), Debuchy, Coloccini, Taylor, Santon, Tiote, Cabaye, Sissoko, Ben Arfa, Jonas, Cisse
Only Gouffran and Mapou, plus new signing Remy, are other likely candidates, at least in the manager’s mind, and those first two are on the subs bench with;
Elliot, Mapou, Dummett, Anita, Gosling, Marveaux, Gouffran, Ameobi x 2
The strong line-up is another indication that the manager wants as little negativity as possible coming out of the pre-season build up, yes i know results don’t matter in the friendles but we all know what the headlines will be if we get beat tonight!
