Hey! It's Newcastle United's third preseason match, kicking off in about 50 minutes of the writing of this lovely little blurb. There will be lineups, and we can all talk it out and hug it out together. And hey, based on the transfer window inactivity to this point, we might as well get our inner Eeyores warmed up as well. No sense in starting this season off with any sort of optimism, right?
Newcastle United (4-2-3-1) - Elliott; Debuchy, Taylor, Coloccini, Yanga-Mbiwa; Cabaye, Tiote; Sissoko, Ben Arfa, Sa. Ameobi; Sh. Ameobi
Subs: Alnwick; Santon, Williamson, Dummett, Gutierrez, Marveaux, Gouffran, Vuckic, Campbell
Remember, kids. It's not if you win or lose, it's how you play the game. Alternate (unapproved) activity: Active discussion of the royal baby. Mind you, I cannot guarantee that anyone would join in with you on that one, but hey. Awesome thing about being in EDT? It'll be far past noon if I start drinking during the match.
