Newcastle (a) - Match Thread - 03/01/2021

Lovely stuff. Should do these with that lineup.

 

Keep it away from Wilson at feet and we can deal with them with that backline. No Shelvey in the starting lineup a bonus - even if he's not the player he was, his searching balls always worry me when we play these 

 

inb4 Joelinton decides to have his one good game in 20 now i've said that

I like having Castagne and Justin both on – means Rodgers has the option to swap them around if needed.

 

Ricardo is better than either as a RB or RWB, but having those two offers more options. 

 

What a team we're building here!

He's in for his defending work, JJ will get forward. 

I know, but I don't particularly think we need to think too much about defensive reinforcements against Newcastle.

 

Feels like a wasted attacking option to break down a team that will turn up to defend.

I thought we might see Under start but I guess a Cameo will test his Fitness without risking him from the start.

 

Albrighton offers more defensive cover that Perez which is why he gets the Nod over him.

But give you attacking options on the bench if need.

That's as good a team as we can field and gives me a lot of confidence.

 

I get Albrighton playing, he works hard both in attack and defence. Let's get control of the game,  and then look at bringing on ünder to take advantage of a more tired Newcastle.

 

Absolutely no excuses today.

 

Bring it on.

I like Albrighton but I’m not sure it’s worth playing him instead of say a Perez if only Vardy is up top  to convert his decent deliveries. Still it’s a strong side and we should be threatening a win I hope.

Terrifies me that people are talking about a winger needing to offer defensive protection against Newcastle.

 

Love the echo chamber that is the internet lol

They may not be that good but doesn't mean they can't pose a threat. It's good to have defensive cover. I don't get why it's such a contentious point for Albrighton to play. It means it's a side that can be well-balanced. 

 

No doubt if we were caught on the break because Justin attacked down the right you'd get some fans being like 'if we had some defensive cover that could have been prevented' :dunno:

Looing forward to Sky focusing on Chelsea, Man City, Man U, Liverpool, Arsenal and Spur, before talking about us and Newcastle for 5 mins

Albrighton should only play on the left but as Barnes is there he shouldn't really be starting against these on the other side but Perez/Under have hardly done enough to warrant a start either.
