      Looking at Newcastle’s team they are basically bang average but high in confidence.

      I think we will win 2-1 and it’ll be deserved.

      Alison
      TAA
      Robertson
      VVD
      Matip

      Henderson
      Fabinho
      Thiago

      Salah
      Jota
      Mane

      I also think city will absolutely hammer Leeds...
      Highly doubt we see the same midfield that started two days ago. Would expect Keita to start and at least one of Henderson/Thiago rested. It's not ideal but we'll need legs in the midfield. This is where having another high-level midfielder would be useful, as right now none of Ox/Jones/Elliott/Milner inspire much confidence in midfield for a tricky must-win game.

      Out of that quad, I think Elliot will give Newcastle the biggest problem. Also think Jotta, Bob and Diaz might start up top.

      This could be the one where the sh*t hits the fan.

      A real shocker of a fixture.

      12.30 after a Wednesday game away at a side in flying form. Pretty grim but if any team can its this one.

      Obviously, teams are not supposed to be going for four trophies but this fixture schedule is absolutely brutal.  Barely have time to watch the highlights of a game and then we're at the other side of the country playing another game.

      It's intense for us so must be mad for the coaches and players.

      Premier League and TV companies don’t help us though even when they could. La Liga will bend over backwards to rearrange games for their teams going far in Europe yet we are stuck with the 12.30 KO when City who played the night before get the evening game.

      Absolute madness.

      And City also plays their 2nd leg on Wednesday whereas we are playing Tuesday. How does that make any sense!

      It’s as clear as day. The powers that be, wether it’s tv companies or the prem, they will do all they can to help city, and everything possible to throw a spanner in our works.
      They Clearly want pep and city to to Lord over everyone, and how dare we challenge them 🤷‍♂️ When we win anything, it’s always against the odds, whereas others get a free ride.

      Should be an electrifying atmosphere at St James today, they’ll be up for it & im sure we will be aware of it, just got to be patient & the goals will come..

      1-3 to the Redmen..

      I don't actually think the pressure will be a problem. Hardly a player in the squad who isn't vastly experienced. Fatigue might be an issue but the Boss can rotate to ease that. But if you went into the dressing room today and offered one of them the afternoon off....it would be "rearrange the following two words....off f**k..."

      Really hate these early kick offs, well, unless we win. Hopefully the pressure is off us straight away this round of fixtures.

      Diaz, Mane and Jota front 3 with Mo having played full 90 on Wednesday?

      Gets to the point where they don’t even significantly train, just becomes light sessions and tactical work for the next game.
