Shelvey is our leading scorer and most creative player so I can understand why Bruce is playing him.
I've got to give him credit for changing things because this is on him and he can't blame Rafa
Best of luck to him because im my eyes there's only one thing worse than Mike Ashley, it's Newcastle losing a football game.
Joelinton should have had a partner from day one as he isn't an out and out striker never mind a lone one. To protect the investment there'll surely be some sort of clause in although potentially today's pairing with Almiron and Gayle should see him get more joy.
See how he performs getting more service but ive a feeling that Burnley will play counter attacking today and stifle the 'new' tactics.
I'm curious to why Bruce has changed the formation as he had previously stated that the players had lost the ability to get up and down the pitch which is necessary when attacking is the preferred tactic .
Does he now feel more confident in regards to their fitness or is he just changing it for the sake of change ?
