Will Bruce play his strongest side or will he rotate the squad?

I can't imagine Carroll will be able to play again so soon.

Gillespie, Ritchie, Krafth, Fraser were unused subs versus West Ham. Joelinton, S.Longstaff and Almiron came on. You'd imagine a few of them will start against Blackburn.

I wonder if any of the fringe players like Atsu, Murphy, Yedlin, etc will play? It would cup tie them which NUFC may not want to do if looking to move them on to English teams.

Fernandez and Lascelles will probably play again as the other centre backs aren't fit (apart from maybe Clark who was in the training pictures).

Cant see him risking Fernandez or Lascelles, probably be Krafth and another "make do" or Clark if he's available.

This could be a typical ‘Ashley era’ limp cup exit.

League Cup will be so far down the list of priorities for the top sides, it’d be a great year to give it a real go..

Been out with a thigh injury. Not sure he has been in full training for quite a while?

Think the same, except Barlaser instead of Matty Longstaff

Aye Matty Longstaff's got a thigh injury apparently. Don't think he's due back for a few weeks.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

But we won’t . again.

You want to be winning to keep the feel good factor. Even if he plays 2 or 3 of the current first team, a loss would effect them. It’s so stupid having cup games so early..

Play the strongest side and make subs once the job is done.

Blackburn are by no means a foregone conclusion though, anything other than full effort and we’re out, again.

i think we'll see plenty of changes,  with the short pre-season i think we'll use the game to get game time into players who didn't play on Saturday.   Can see us lining up something like this....
                        DARLOW
KRAFTH   LASCELLES   FERNANDEZ  LEWIS
             HENDRICK     LONGSTAFF
      FRASER       ALMIRON        RITCHIE
                WILSON or JOELINTON

That should be strong enough to get past Blackburn.

No idea who set the pricing for that but it’s way off.

£10 would have been enough to see this game live if it wasn’t behind closed doors, can’t imagine there would be a huge uptake at that price for a stream.

Would it be daft to claim they’d easily get 6 times as many viewers if they were charging lets say £2.00?

Considering the goals will probably be shown on Sky just after they've gone in it is not a tenner I will be spending

I hope this sort of this becomes allowed more often even if Newcastle's cup attitude makes it more difficult.

I fully expect the return of the 3PM Saturday blackout, but considering weekday cups struggle for all clubs, makes total sense to allow clubs to broadcast it themselves if they aren't on TV, lockdown or no.

That should be strong enough to get past Blackburn. 

That's a pretty decent "reserve" lineup and is, as you say, enough to beat Blackburn (on paper, anyway...) Big Joe likely to start, and possibly Barlasar instead of Hendrick, but otherwise...

I’d start 5 of the outfield subs from West Ham and give Fraser 30 minutes or so. Think Darlow should stay in goal though, important he gets used to playing. Possibly play Hayden as a centre-back since we’ve only got two CBs fit at the minute.

Darlow
Krafth
Lewis
Hayden
Fernandez
S.Longstaff
Shelvey
Hendrick
Almiron
Joelinton
Wilson

Should see us through and you’d think Blackburn will do similar. We’ve then got a kind 3rd Round and a tough schedule in terms of shortened length of the season, so whoever’s played both on Saturday & Tuesday, rest them in the Third Round. Should be able to get to Round 4 using the squad.

If Ritchie and Fraser both played I'm sure Ritchie would be on the right and Fraser on the left

It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

As expected. Can’t blame him tbh. Going to have to try and manage the squad’s fitness far better than he did last year.

First time in ages we actually had some good players on the bench on Saturday, definitely the right thing to do to play the likes of Fraser, Longstaff, Almiron and Joelinton here.
