Newcastle Preview

Will Nobby Solano face his old side? I think most of us would like to think so as he’s performed really well in the few matches he has started this season. He gives us something extra at set pieces and corners. If it were down to me I would start him on the right of midfield with Julien Faubert replacing Pantsil at right back. It’s important that Faubert gets match practice.

I expect James Tomkins and Lucas Neill to remain in central defence and Bobby Zamora starting alongside the fit again Dean Ashton. Carlton Cole also has a strong shout for a starting place but I think he will be disappointed.

I hope it’s not me that’s disappointed when I get to the ground. The promised replacement season ticket never turned up (so much for my praise for the ticket office!) so I will have to queue up for one when I get there. Which reminds me, I’d better leave now!

Prediction: 2-2 draw! I’d settle for that as long as we get some excitement!

    You and the Mirror both got it right. 2-2. And some excitement. And as Chris says – we threw it away.
