Match Thread Newcastle Utd V Leeds Utd Match Thread/ Bielsa Unhappy!

Post by Ellandback1 »



Friday 17th September 20:00 | St James Park


St James Park will be packed to the rafters on Friday evening when Leeds are the visitors to Newcastle's infamous Stadium. Although early on in their campaigns, both sides find themselves at the wrong end of the table, desperate for three points which will propel them clear of the drop zone. Leeds will be without defensive trio Struijk, Llorente and Koch. Struijk's appeal against his three game ban was unsuccessful. He is also set to miss the visit to Craven Cottage in the League Cup and the home game against West Ham. Llorente and Koch's respective injuries are described as minor, though both miss out on Friday night.

Whilst many would like to see Charlie Cresswell makes his Senior League debut, Bielsa will switch Ayling to centre back, with either Dallas at right back. If Newcastle go two up top, Kalvin Phillips is likely to drop back into a three man defence. After a poor start to his campaign, Rodrigo's gets the nod ahead of Tyler Roberts in the Bo.10 role. The £30m record signing was replaced at half-time in favour of Tyler Roberts against Liverpool. Mateusz Klich will slot back into midfield alongside. Dan James will also make his first start, Jack Harrison missing out due to Covid.




Newcastle will again be without the services of Martin Dubravka, Jonjo Shelvey and Elliott Anderson on Friday through injury, while Callum Wilson remains a major doubt due to a thigh problem. The Magpies welcome back Federico Fernandez and Fabian Schar to their defensive line up, allowing Isaac Hayden to return to midfield. Joe Willock, Paul Dummett, Ryan Frazer, Manquillo and Ciaran Clark are all carrying knocks and will be assessed closer to kick off. Karl Darlow is expected to replace Freddie Woodman between the sticks.

Expect blood, sweat, tears and plenty of free flowing as two of the Country's most fanatic supporters go head to head.


Leeds Starting XI
Meslier, Dallas, Ayling, Cooper, Firpo, 3Phillips, Raphinha, Klich, Rodrigo, James, Bamford

Subs: Roberts, Klaesson, Cresswell, Summerville, McKinstry, Greenwood, McCarron, Shackleton, Kenneh

Fear not folks Radz has just tweeted that we have three new signings to call upon, he popped his head in the medical room and discovered that Forshaw, Koch n Llorente are making amazing progress.

Barring any unforeseen setbacks they should all be available sometime in 2025.

Awesome news Radz :tup: :ok:

The air gets a bit thin up there mate, so you might need some oxygen with you. It'll come in handy when Cooper starts with the shirt pulling ;-)

That should be easy enough Leon, with your mask and binocs :)

Just make sure you don't go anywhere near their training ground, cos you'll be arrested, slagged off by Gobby on Talksport, and the FA will have Bielsa up on a disrepute charge ;-)

I just hope Newcastle are worse than we are right now, i genuinely struggle to see us keeping a clean sheet at the minute with another makeshift defence. I thought we were going to be comfortable this season at CB and here we are again with only Coops available out of the 4. Will it be Shack in at RB or will Mr versatile cover another position? We need Klich back if ready.

This is a pivotal game already to gain some momentum.

Shackleton is best as a box to box midfielder imo so if anyone should move to RB it should be Dallas. Put Shackleton in midfield.
