NUFC v. Spurs: How to watch, or not

Newcastle are playing Spurs. Watch it. Or don't! Either way, hang out here and we'll discuss it!

Why not?

Newcastle United host Tottenham Hotspur in what will be known for all time as "the #BoycottSpurs match".  The effects of not watching the match through broadcast channels will not be felt by Mike Ashley in any way, but if you want to boycott in that form, by all means do!  We'll post the lineups and all of those good things, but you can drive the conversation.  Post pictures of kittens!  Talk over the finer points of the Session IPA style.  Whatever.  We'll make it through however we can.  Of course, if you are watching the match, it's entirely likely that you're going to want to partake of some of the alternate activities as well.

Anyway, Working Class John Carver™ and his charges host Spurs.  Red Card Captain Fabricio Coloccini is back in the lineup, which means that Carver has one healthy CB and Mike Williamson to patrol the middle of the defense.  Daryl Janmaat should return to RB which only leaves some mystery at LB.  Will Ryan Taylor make the switch across the pitch to the position he played for Alan Pardew in the 2011-12 season or does the nod go to Vurnon Anita or Jack Colback again?  Either way, Newcastle are going to have to find goals if they want to make the last 5 matches of the season mostly moot.
