Newcastle’s run of nine games without a win could come to an end as the magpies host Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday 20th October on a 15:00 kick off.
It has taken me a while to see it but there are positives to be taken from the defeat to Manchester United. The first half performance against Manchester United was the best display of football that I’ve seen from the lads this season so far; There was character and aggression, hopefully the players are feeling more confident now than what they have done this season.
Will we finally see a plan B?
A lot of fans have been wondering when Rafa is going to deploy plan B? if there is no plan B, then people will start to panic, if Brighton change their tactics, then Brighton is the best team that we have played against bar Cardiff to promote the back up plan because questions will
Fabian Schar should start
The Swiss international who signed for only three million euros in the summer has not had many opportunities with the Newcastle first team, I know this lad has the talent to perform at the highest level as he has played as a starting centre back in the biggest club competitions in the world. For 26 years old he has made 222 senior appearances and scored 28 goals… for a defender that’s not too shabby!
His impressive performances with the national side has awarded him with a spot in the UEFA Nations League totw, whether Switzerland win or lose, Schar is regularly one of the higher rated players in that Swiss side at the end of every match.
Full time result: 2-0 Newcastle.
