No Cabella but Steven Taylor named in Newcastle team v Leicester

7 years ago

In a strange addition to the chaos that is likely to surround St.James’ Park today, Newcastle United sent out an official press statement 75 minutes before kick-off apologising for delaying the opening of the turnstiles.

This is due to an issue with the new giant advertising screen….the mind boggles!

NUFC Official Statement

‘Newcastle United can confirm that there is currently a short delay in opening the turnstiles for today’s game whilst an issue with the new screen is being addressed.

Further updates to follow.

Newcastle United apologies for any inconvenience caused to supporters.’

When it comes to the team today, Newcastle line up with;

Krul, Janmaat, Coloccini, Steven Taylor, Dummett, Sissoko, Colback, Tiote, Obertan, Gouffran, Cisse

Many fans will despair that Gouffran keeps his place whilst Cabella and Armstrong only make the bench.

The total absence of Williamson suggests another injury has hit the squad.

Subs: Elliot, Haidara, Anita, Abeid, Cabella, Armstrong, Perez
