Big surprise, Newcastle nowhere near as weakened as was reported. Last I heard Elliot, Williamson, Janmaat, Haidara, and Abeid were all expected to be missing! Hopefully the defenders are still carrying knocks and we can exploit that.

Fungus, they don't have their first choice keeper and both Sissoko & Colback are suspended which is basically their 'engine room'. Those 2 will be a huge miss for them.

Coloccini is also their captain and he's out.

It should be weak enough for us to get something from the game.

Kightly is very unlucky to miss out - I personally thought he played well against Villa, and was more effective than Boyd (in that particular game).

Big Arfield fan, but I wouldn't have changed it.

Good to see Keane getting some matches now.
