I'm not certain that I'm going to be able to be around for the match thread, so everyone be excellent to each other. Demba Ba has one foot in at Stamford Bridge, so he looks likely to have featured for the Toon for the last time - he'll not be in the squad. Nile Ranger, Remie Streete and Vurnon Anita all will be. Also not featuring for Newcastle will be Mathieu Debuchy - Twitter has said that he will, however, be at St. James' with a brand new Newcastle contract, and so he will be at St. James' with a brand new Newcastle contract because it was on Twitter.
No lineups just yet, but I figure that you're going to see something like:
Newcastle United (4-3-3): Krul | Tavernier, Williamson, Coloccini, Santon | Anita, Tiote, Perch | Marveaux, Cisse, Obertan
Have fun, here's hoping for a win and play nice!
Here's what the actual lineup will be:
Newcastle United (4-2-3-1): Krul; Perch, Williamson, Coloccini, Santon; Tiote, Anita; Cisse, Marveaux, Obertan; Shola Ameobi
NUFC subs: Elliot, Ferguson, Tavernier, Abeid, Bigirimana, Sammy Ameobi, Ranger.
