    Aarons Vs Lewis will be very interesting match up. Let's hope Lewis is a bit rusty

    So far we are still clear. My daughter works at MOD and is partly responsible for Covid protocols for the military so has all the up to date info. As of 4 hours we are still OK to travel.

    Lewis hasn't played since February, so there could be a bit of rustiness, though he has played in some games for Northern Ireland since then, including one sending off for two yellow cards.

    It's going to be cold in Newcastle

    So cold. Interestingly I thought our Scots and Finns and Brits coped with the weather notably well - versus Wolves' Portuguese... Could be a factor

    Agree with Rob. MetOffice says not that cold at 9°, but could be wet and windy. Our likely line-up should be up to that with ex Newcastle Krul, 3 Scots, Pukki (you call that cold?), Mancunian Williams, liverpudlian Dowell, Gibson and Rupp.

    WhoScored's probable lineups:

    That looks about right, except that Smith may want Sargent's pressing skills to counter St Maximin. For form, Newcastle has taken 3 points from the last 5 games whereas we've taken 7.

    Those stats make it clear how important Saint Maximin is to Newcastle. I seem to remember him bossing the pre-season friendly against us, too.

    I don’t like the sound of a Dubravka in form, it’s typical for us to make a goalkeeper look world class.

    Let’s hope Sargent finds his shooting boots, he really deserves a goal for his efforts. Same for Rashica.

    There was no stream for the pre season against Newcastle but I thought the humping we received was a bit ominous.

    Under Farke against a side without a win this would be an along came Norj nailed on but we seem to have turned a corner under Smith.

    I think it is also worth mentioning that the game was at the end of the covid disruption and players were only just returning, we hadn’t played a game in two weeks
