Official Match Thread: Newcastle United Vs Chelsea

Recommended Posts

It all suddenly looks so different now.

 

Flat 4-4-2 I reckon.

 

At least there will be some fight in them at last, I'm sure they will be left in doubt what is expected.

Any other team and i'd say Keegan 433 style. I just think Chelsea have too much in the centre of the park to leave our midfield so exposed. I agree with 442, with Nolan and Guthrie playing IMO.

Any chance Chelsea rest some of their internationals, what with having liverpool in the European game on Wednesday?

 

No chance, they want the league

 

1-0 to us Owen the winner!

I'm just hoping we get a point at least at Stoke. BS (before Shearer), I thought we would have no chance, thus nailing us to relegation certainties. Now I'm hopeful we can get something at Stoke, and even if we don't we can fashion some fighting spirit and performances to avoid the drop.

 

Chelsea? I'm not too concerned about tbh.

I am cautious to expect too much from this game, but it would be bloody awesome if we could nick a win in Big Al's first game in charge.

Just hope it's not a drubbing, as that might begin to undermine any "Shearer" effect before he has chance to give us a shot at staying up.

Paddy Power appear to have gone temporarily insane by offering an exclusive bet for NUFC.com readers 10/1 for Newcastle to win this game!

 

 

Worth a tenner of anyones money.

Anyone going to take a stab at the team he will pick?

 

If one/both of Bassong/Saylor fit:

 

Harper, Beye, Coloccini, Bassong, Enrique, Raylor, Butt, Nolan, Jonas, Martins, Owen.

 

If both Saylor and Bass out:

 

Harper, Raylor, Beye, Coloccini, Enrqiue, Duff, Butt, Nolan, Jonas, Martins, Owen.

I'm just hoping for him to go with some bizarre sort of system like playing right footed players on the right and left footers on the left.

You some sort of crazy shit like that.

Is Duff fit?

 

Physioroom reckon he's hamstrung with no return date.

Monday night's reserve game at SJP saw Danny Guthrie, Cacapa and Xisco all prove their fitness in front of the watching Chris Hughton and they come into contention.

 

Hughton commented that it would be a "nice surprise" for Steven Taylor (ankle) and/or Sebastien Bassong (groin) to feature against Chelsea, while Andy Carroll (ankle) and Damien Duff (hamstring) are both rated doubtful after withdrawing from international duty.

 

Joey Barton remains sidelined, while Mark Viduka is "on the comeback trail". Lucky us

Caçapa and Coloccini as our centre-back pairing? I hope not.
