KWP for perraud and Moi for Theo

I'm happy with that. Perraud ha struggled in his 2 games and KWP should give is more down the left. Moi is an interesting one, but he'll step in off the right and free up Livramento to get down the wing, and possibly allow JWP to get forward a bit. 

I fancy us today. A hard fought 2-1.  Armstrong to get both.

Morning all,

If someone could provide a link to a good stream later or to a good IPTV service would be much appreciated so I could have a look before 3pm.

soccerstreams-100.com is brilliant

Choose "Weakspell" or "Ovostream" when the options appear. If the stream freezes just refresh, they're usually flawless though. 

Here's the direct link for our game https://redditlive.soccerstreams-100.com/event/newcastle-united-vs-southampton-match-preview/

So key findings for me is, Bednarek on bench again, no Lyanco (understandable though) or Shane Long not in the matchday squad.

Soon we will also need Stuart Armstrong to fit in there too.

Good team though keeping a clean sheet is what I'd like if we are to win this

Yes but he’s shit 

I know, but we are going to need to put up with it until a new keeper is signed next summer when Forster leaves. Or perhaps if McCarthy is injured, suspended or fucks up badly for a run of games and Forster comes in.

Sure does. I hadn't noticed Broja in the bench until you posted. Nice to see him there.

Is this on telly cos I can’t see it?

Nope- not on telly. It'll be a stream or radio job.

This season things have reverted to normal unlike last season where every game was televised

KWP LB, Tino RB.

Ely in for Theo.

Broja on the bench.

I think those are the changes we wanted to see. (although maybe not the left back dropped, he's been sound)

Very harsh on Perraud. Smacks of trying to find a space for KWP at any cost.

I see it as having more pace at the back with St Max and Almiron up top for them

The Perraud Djenepo link up was working well I thought. Still unconvinced on Perraud but he's young and will improve.

Agreed, far more palatable than some of the showers of last season.

Strange team selection, as usual, but let's hope it works. 

I wouldn't call that team selection very strange. I personally wouldn't play Stephens but he played well last week so probably deserves to keep his place. Other tha are that Theo replaced and trying to fit in kwp and Livramento to the same team (something a few people wanted) and I think it's a pretty good team selection considering Armstrong is injured.

And?

He is our No 1, rightly or wrongly, and just signed a new contract, Fraser is only providing cover just now. 

Continuing to play crap performing players week in week out regardless of performance is incredibly bizarre. Announcing Mccarthy as first choice based in the fact that he was happy to sign a new contract and be second choice no doubt next year is just weird.

It's not rocket science, he is shit and you could make a case against him for every goal we've conceded this season. He showed a willingness to switch the same keepers last year when they made mistakes so why not now?

Because you will never build anything resembling a settled defence swapping ‘keepers every weekend. I’d have played Forster too but the sad fact is we have two substandard options and we’ve got to make our bed with one of them.

I’m not disagreeing, but that wasn’t the original point, people shouldn’t be surprised at him picking Alex, should they, given what had been said.

I dont think the selection is strange at all

Not sure Perroud deserved to be dropped but as others have said, KWP is more experienced in the the Premier League and has good pace, fitness and positional awareness to deal with the pace Newcastle offer up front

Glad to see Moi in and Broja on the bench

we likely only have one more season with Alex as first choice, next season I expect a new keeper. Tough on this season, although I’m still hoping we get someone in as first choice now, but wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t.

Think KWP has been impressive in both outings on the left(though newport was very weak opp). Perraud hasn't been terrible but when one of your best players from the previous season shows impressive form at left back i think it was the obvious decision to see if it works from the start.

Add another centre back and striker to it and I’d guesstimate it could beat some Prem teams!

I haven't seen many people expressing surprise, more frustration. I think most people hold out hope for a change of heart, particularly if the poor performances continue.

Don't click on ads for porn! Or any other popups! It's 2021 we should all know this by now. Also, if a popup appeared saying "Warning your computer has an infection" it's fake. Ignore it, close it.

Big chance for Moi today to prove he is good enough.Newcastle's attack looks far too strong for our defence, can't see any other result other than a comfortable Newcastle win, 3-0 (Wilson, 7, 41, Almiron 58)
