Friday's NUFC Recap

  • Maxi is in contention, having played briefly at the weekend
  • Krafth still in Sweden as he recovers long-term
  • Shelvey back doing light training, but not ready yet
  • Ritchie remains out with calf injury

130th anniversary shirt released

  • Having been rumoured yesterday, today we got confirmation of the new shirt
  • It was speculated to be a 4th kit, however, it's just a shirt (with no sponsors present)

Bruno set to be offered new deal

  • Fabrizio is reporting that Newcastle are set to offer Bruno a new deal
  • Having been at the club less than a year, Bruno has shown his class on and off the field
  • The deal will at the very least offer a higher wage
  • Though we're sure the club would like to lock Bruno down for a longer period given other top sides are sniffing around

U21s beat Villa 2-1

  • Midfielder Joe White opening the scoring
  • Before Villa pulled level before the break
  • Josh Scott gave Newcastle back their lead at the hour mark

Man U team news

  • A number of first team players are expected to be out for Man U
  • Having only played Thursday in the Europa League, the fixture against Newcastle is coming at a bad time
  • Scott McTominay, who scored the winner in the cup tie, is out with suspension
  • While Anthony Martial, Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Donny van de Beek are all expected to miss out
  • Martin Dubravka is ineligible to play, though given his lack of game time you'd think he was always ineligible to play
  • A number of Man U players that started against Everton also played a significant amount of time in Europe. Which could be a key advantage to how Eddie sets up the team
