Lineups and Open Thread: Bolton v. Newcastle

Let's see some cheer to take us into the New Year
Let's see some cheer to take us into the New Year

I know usually we have those fancy columns for our open threads, but it's Boxing Day and I'm running late. I hope you can find it in your holiday spirit to forgive me. Without further ado...

Bolton: Jaaskelainen, Robinson, Boyata, Knight, Cahill, M Davies, Muamba, Reo-Coker, Petrov, Klasnic, Ngog

Subs:Bogdan, Eagles, Tuncay, K Davies, Ricketts, Pratley, Wheater

Ricketts makes his glorious return to the first team, albeit on the bench, while Boyata makes what is probably his last appearance for Bolton. Although David Wheater is back from his ban, he's also on the bench, leaving the much maligned Zat Knight with a starting shirt still. Mark Davies starts on the right wing, after Chris Eagles gave increasingly unimpressive performances, and once again Klasnic and Ngog start up top together.

Newcastle:Krul, Coloccini, Cabaye, Simpson, Williamson, R Taylor, Gutierrez, Ba, Best, Tiote, Obertan

Subs: Elliot, Ben Arfa, Perch, Shola Ameobi, Sammy Ameobi, Vuckic, Ferguson
