NEWCASTLE V SWANSEA MATCH THREAD
« on: January 11, 2018, 05:27:44 PM »
Saturday, 13th January, 2018.
Kick off 3pm. at St. James' Park.



Swansea have only won twice away from home this season beating Palace and Watford, Abrahams has flopped somewhat only 4 goals so far this season, (one more than our Jokelu ofcourse) and so they find themselves at the foot of the table with 16 points from 22 games, nonetheless this game can be seen as a six-pointer with the difference between 1tth and 20th place in the premiership only being 8 points.

Lascelles has been voted FUN88's player of the month for December, the third time he has won it so far this season and hopefully he will be ok to start against Swansea, he has said on twitter after the Luton match that he was brought off only as a precautionary measure, although the FPL have him down as 75% chance of playing I think he will be in the team, so it could look something like this:-

DARLOW

YEDLIN LASCELLES CLARK DUMMETT

MERINO SHELVEY

RITCHIE PEREZ ATSU

GAYLE

score prediction: 2-0

I think we will win this 3-1 is my prediction. No idea why I just fancy us to beat them simple as that. We should be high on confidence but this is NUFC so anything could happen. I?m still sticking with that score line though.
Hello hello we are the Geordie boys.

Massive game this for both clubs, not just a '6 pointer' , but a win would really anchor Swansea in the relegation spot . Also the arse end of the division are mainly playing each other so this weekend could really seperate the wheat from the chaff
If you could have Bill Gates wealth ,or could feed all the hungry in Africa...what color Ferarri would you have?

Another tight affair. They have been turned over twice (City,Liverpool). Then, mostly one goal defeats which is pretty much the story for the bottom 10 teams.

In the stadium we need to do our part. Stay patient and not get on the lads case if it is 0-0 at HT, or worse if we go behind. We need every point. A win would put us 9 points ahead of them and pretty much finish them. A draw would be disappointing but not a disaster.

A nervy 1-0 for the Toon

swansea are bottom for a reason, theyve scored less goals than any other club, 13 goals from 22 games should make Rafa confident enough to attack these from the start get plenty of bodies in their box and we will score, we've not won a league match at home since Oct 21st and if he's gonna take risks at any time in the season it has to be this match, they are so impotent in attack that we should not be fearing them at all.

Carlos Carvalhal knows how to play Benitez and has beaten NUFC with weaker squads, just as an FYI. It's like Fer's bound to be key in the critical moments after having that red rescinded.
