Newcastle 3-0 1860 Munich: Bruno shines and new boys make debut out in Austria

Newcastle followed up last weekend’s 5-1 win over Gateshead with a convincing victory over 1860 Munich on Friday afternoon.

After a scrappy opening 45 minutes, second half goals from Joe Willock, Sean Longstaff and Bruno Guimaraes handed us a 3-0 win over the Germans.

Eddie Howe handed Nick Pope his first Newcastle United start, while Sven Botman also showed glimpses of real quality and composure on the ball during his second half cameo.

Elliot Anderson featured for the opening 60 minutes before Howe made 10 changes and was unlucky not to bag himself an assist, showing glimpses of quality once again.

Jonjo Shelvey played a key role in Willock’s opener, cutting the ball back nicely, while Bruno Guimaraes had a hand in two goals, setting up Longstaff for his superbly hit second and getting on the scoresheet himself after some unselfish work from Chris Wood.

In truth, the first 45 was a scrappy and disjointed affair typical of a pre-season friendly featuring two sides blowing off the cobwebs, but we stepped things up a gear in the second half and cut through the Germans with ease at times.

Here’s highlights of the game, followed by full details of who featured in each half and those who missed out entirely:

Starting XI: Pope – Krafth, Lascelles, Burn, Targett – Shelvey, Willock, Anderson – Murphy, Saint-Maximin, Wilson.

Half-time change: Lascelles off, Botman on.

Second half XI from 60 minutes onwards: Dubravka – Trippier, Schar, Botman, Dummett – Joelinton, Bruno, S Longstaff – Almiron, Wood Fraser.

Unused substitutes: M Longstaff, Turner-Cooke

Players absent: Lewis (precaution), Ritchie (precaution), Watts, Fernandez, Manquillo, Darlow, Gillespie, Gayle.

  1. Hi guys,

    As you will have seen, we had an issue on the site today – yep, another one.

    I know you’re frustrated as there’s already outstanding issues that also need to be sorted (which have dragged on too long now), but please know that I’ve had an awful day myself. I’ve lost all of the work I have produced over the past 24 hours and about 8-10 articles – including a new exclusive I’d worked hard on – that were scheduled to go out over the weekend.

    With that in mind, I’d appreciate it if you didn’t post “FIX THE SITE” in capital letters on articles I’ve spent all day working on. It’s not really fair on me when I have NOTHING to do with this side of matters. I’m trying to get things sorted and the tech team are working away to find solutions after cocking up.

    I appreciate you are losing patience with the issues, but this is a site – and a huge passion of mine – that I’ve worked tirelessly on 24/7 for years now. It’s not for the want of trying to get all this sorted – I’m not ignoring you, it’s just been one of those months where there’s been issue after issue and I’m becoming pretty overwhelmed.

    Will keep you informed best I can, but please be considerate given the stress I’m under at present.

  2. Great to see us playing in black and white at an away game!!!

    This is a very minor pet peeve of mine that if we play away at, say Chelsea, when the colours dont clash, that we play in the 3rd strip. Who buys the 3rd strip?

  3. Joe Biden “fist bumped” Crown Prince Bin Salmon today. This will probably send Miguel Delaney of The Independent into meltdown although he never said anything about the Saudis funding his team – Man U.

  4. As you say Ollie, frustrating, more for you than us.
    For us it’s one of the few sources of information that is trustworthy, we know you don’t make things up simply to sell the site.
    As a writer myself I do appreciate the hard work you put in, how many articles a day? I’m 24/7 on whatever project I’m writing. It’s also why I don’t write for this site anymore. Too much work for an hour or two on the site.
    At least I got to read the ‘lost articles’ at least those that were published.
    Look forward to a time when everything is fixed and nobody ever has anything to complain.
    Meanwhile back to real life and a few hours on the road supporting my MIL who is in hospital with a stroke as she has been for the last couple of months.
    Good Luck

  5. Prem: sorry to hear about your mother-in-law. I had a similar situation a couple of years ago where I had to fly back to Newcastle when my Aunt had a stroke. She was in hospital for 2 months but recovered (not fully, she is 90 nd has dementia). It was as much about me Mam (her sister) as she was freaking out and needed someone to give her some support that wasnt just on the phone.

    Be strong for your wife as I know you will be as you have spoken so lovingly about your son on here.

  6. Rooney has been appointed as DC United manager. Wayne is not as dumb as he looks. Phil Neville on the other hand is exactly as dumb as he looks and will be fired as coach of Inter Miami at the end of the season.

    I am not Nostradamus, but I think I will be right.

  7. AND, AND, AND…

    It is so funny that the England women are doing so much better when PNev is not their coach.

    I said this the 1st minute he was hired.

  8. Watched the game yesterday. Highlights for me were young Anderson doing quite well, Botman looking very composed and Bruno immediately back on song. Negatives were Murphy and Fraser looking just as disappointing as I last saw them. I’ll be happy never to see Murphy again. Fraser will get better but very slowly. Maxi was his usual mess.

  9. Olly mate, sorry! There is nothing aimed at you mate! Absolutely not! Everyone on this site knows the work you put into it. It was my comment you’re obviously referring to. I’ve written for the site too in the past and I know what you put into it! Please don’t take it as a comment aimed at you. It absolutely wasn’t. I and many here have been on the site for many years! More than 10 for me at least. As was said, this has always been the go to place for banter and chat and real info, as well as excellent match write ups.

  10. I am not sure that we will make a “name”/statement signing that new Saudi fans can put on the back of their shirts. We will probably get Paqueta or Diaby but their names are not that well known yet.

    From what I have seen, we already have the superstar – BRUNO!!!!!!

    We need a couple of pieces to the puzzle, but I think his name will be the one on most of our fans’ shirts.

    Prem, All the best mate, hope MIL recovers well.

  13. I wonder if Amanda and Co will step back from their PR duties now that we have a CEO and a Director of Football? I expect to still see them at games as they seem to enjoy it.

    Best to stay off “Talkshyte” Amanda as Simon Jordon will twist anything you say turning a simple football discussion into why you havent fixed the plight of all women and gays in Saudi.

  14. I will do another test of this site and just raise a question.

    I have absolutely nothing against Wor Flags, but can you actually see the game with all those waving around? I have watched Dortmund games and the “yellow wall” and there is no way you could see the game through that.

  15. this site has become one big pain in the ****,whats going on?on minute your comment is on couple of mim later every changes,i give up

  16. I am glad that Willock has been interviewed in Austria. He seems like the “forgotten man” to a lot of fans. I think he played really well when on loan, and remember that was under the Cabbage. He then needed a bit of time to settle after the permanent deal, as has been admitted by Eddie. I reckon he will be like the proverbial new signing this season when he gets his chance. I have watched his youtube clips and he is as good on there as any of the hot prospects we are looking at.

    I think Little Joe is our 4th most expensive player of all time, so we shouldnt be ignoring him. By my reckoning it goes:

    Joelinton 40ish million
    Bruno 40ish million
    Botman, about 35 mil
    Willock, about 25 mil

  17. not able to get article with new comments up what ever browser i use. Only showing 9 comments for days now. No idea if any of you will see this post but if Olly sees it can he email me to let me know what’s going on here please.
    Also everytime i open up a link to here my log in details are showing my name as Stan Hardy !

  18. WTF is going on with the site? Now when I refresh, comments have gone and I see someone else’s details in the sections at the bottom. Who the F is StanHardy? 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 not me that’s for sure.

  19. I’ve not stayed off the site in a huff, I’ve spent the weekend celebrating my grandparents 70th wedding anniversary – 70 years man!!.

    Olly – I’m not looking to pick a fight with anyone & im certainly not looking to **** on the articles you work so hard on – it’s just really frustrating mate. Prem is right to a degree, we come on to find out the latest on all things NUFC – but it’s also a little social circle too. Whilst I’ve not met these people in person I’ve got to know people on here over the last 15 years or more – the idea that some might walk away from the site because of these issues really bothers me.

    I know you are trying to resolve it mate, and I know there’s only so much you can do. None of my frustration is directed at you if that means anything.

    I believe it that the site was hacked, but I can’t get my head round the fact everything else seems to have been fixed bar these issues 🤷🏼‍♂️.

    Anyway mate, I shall refrain from posting ‘FIX OUR SITE’ … for now!! 😂.

  21. Hi guys,

    I’m in a group chat with the tech guys as we speak, so please send over the site issues you’re experiencing as I’ll send your messages directly to them.

    I know a lot has been said over past few weeks regarding issues in comments section, but would be good to get up to date feedback on this so I know exactly what’s going on.

  22. Just to say that my page is frozen at my thanks Eric post.
    The home page still has the French Ekitike replacement thread
    I can access newer articles via the archives
    my user name is now StanHardy with their email and website
    so good luck at sorting it all out

  23. I checked our squad and we currently have at least 28 1st teamers if you include the 4 goalies. Gayle is as good as gone, so I didnt count him. And I didnt count U23s like Anderson. So, if we are to add 1 or 2 new forwards, we have to make room and probably get rid of 4 or 5 players either through loans or sales.

    Eddie has been making noises about certain players like Fede and Manquillo still having a future at NUFC but I dont believe him. It is just PR.

    We probably have to get rid of 4 from the list below if we are to add anybody:

    Darlow
    Ritchie
    Manquillo
    Fernandez
    Miggy
    Lewis
    Murphy

  24. Looks like the site is fixed now. I have a bit of sympathy for them as $6,000 was drained from my bank account a couple of years ago after I ordered a takeaway. I signed up to Instagram and suddenly was inundated with E-Mails from Ukraine and had to cancel my account. I also get seemingly random e-mails and texts.

    You have to be careful with this hacking ****. I dont know how they do it, but I have personal experience of it.

    I have a team waiting to find out full extent of issues you’ve been experiencing, so this is an ideal chance to let me know exactly what’s going on.

  29. Watched the game, Anderson impressive, Botman too, otherwise pretty drab. Trips had a mare for the goal and Dubs not great. But they were playing in high temps so maybe played a part.

  30. Right so opened new tab and now can see my comments but when i post they don’t show up, very odd. At least I’m not stan hardy anymore.

  31. Olly – I’m finding that the name/email needs re-inputting after each post despite ticking the box.

    Also the comments that are being posted are not show or refreshing.

    For example, I came on to post this morning and it was showing only 9 comments – however once I hit post comment it refreshed to over 30 comments.
    However when I came off the site and came back on it was showing only 9 again.
    When I’ve come on there it was showing 50 comments, so it’s very hit & miss.

      (Quote)

  32. Nope, when I posted that it only showed 50 comments but that would have been the 53rd 🤦🏼‍♂️.

    Details staying though so some progress 👍🏻
