It will be interesting to see what line-up Rafa goes with.

6-3-1 formation :D

I wouldn’t change the formation - don’t Man City play three at the back too?

I dont really think it'll matter too much what formation we send out mate im expecting nothing but a hiding anything less is a bonus.

It's got home win written all over it this one. Can see Matt Ritchie opening the scoring, he's been unlucky lately.

 

Someone’s got to beat these cunts this season. Maybe they’ll get complacent. We could do with a few dodgy decisions going our way for once

It would be typical Newcastle to beat the best team in the league after losing to every other cunt going 

Not today Gloomy they're excellent

Do people want to see a reversion to 4-2-3-1 or sticking with 4-4-2?

 

I'm undecided but we're likely to see a dry bumming anyway, so why not compete with the best attacking team in the world with Joselu and Gayle leading the line?

I'd honestly just play what we did against West Ham, theres little to be gained from just trying to park the bus against this lot but we murdered west ham on the break, its the only way I see us doing anything positive.

 

They've got to make a mistake some time but thats the only way we're getting owt.

I don't think we've been playing 4-4-2 anyway, just a conclusion that gets jumped to when Joselu and Gayle start together. Joselu was deeper than Gayle vs West Ham for sure

might be better if we play 6-4 because i doubt we'll get a shot on goal. Being serious what Andrew said same team & formation that was used against West Ham we've bugger all to lose.

David Silva is back in Spain and won't play tonight. Good news on the football front but doesn't sound good from the rumours of why he's there.

Nothings been confirmed publicly but its something to do with his wife being pregnant and not well.

4-4-2, throw men in the box, try and get behind their full backs on the counter - shit or bust.

No matter what, I expect to be surprised at Rafa's starting line-up, as I always am.

With Shelvey available after suspension,  Merino and Hayden apparently available, and Dummett lurking on the bench, I don't expect to see Rafa starting with the West Ham starting line-up.

Agree 100%.  I wonder if Saivet might maintain his place. :o
