Re: Newcastle v Leeds Match Thread

I like how Hayden started as a centre back despite allegedly being involved in an argument about not wanting to be a centre back <laugh>

Re: Are we in a worse position than in 2020/21

Bruce needs to figure out what to do with Almiron, he's a complete liability being used as a CM. Though Almiron really needs to sort himself out too, far too often a headless chicken with zero end product.

Re: The F1 Thread

Watched the Schumacher film on Netflix last night. Thought it was okay, but didn't really tell us anything that we didn't already know. It was nice seeing some footage of him in his own life enjoying doing family things away from the track and looking very happy. In terms of the racing, they focused...

Re: Are we in a worse position than in 2020/21

If anything had we beat them first game of this season that would have been the weird result... It speaks volumes of Bruce's managerial ability that Moyes absolutely wipes the floor with him. Then again, who doesn't? I genuinely can't think of a worse coach in the PL than him. Bruce probably doesn'...

Re: Are we in a worse position than in 2020/21

I wouldn't disagree, however I don't think I'd make West Ham a direct comparison. We were fortunate to catch them as they were pulling a new team together, and they vastly improved later in the season to the point where they now look brilliant at times. I think the first game of the season last yea...

Are we in a worse position than in 2020/21

Little bit of discussion to keep us going in the week where League Cup matches are taking place and we have of course been knocked out already. So this season so far hasn't yielded the points that many of us might have hoped for, with an opening set of fixtures where we haven't had to play any of la...

Re: Newcastle v Leeds Match Thread

On the surface a good point, but need to start winning. Had an opportunity to win tonight with their defence decimated, if only some chances didn’t fall to the ever present Joelinton. I can only assume that Gayle has pissed on Bruce's chips or something, that he yet again doesn't get a minute on th...

Re: Newcastle v Leeds Match Thread

Almiron really is a liability being played in a midfield three. We should either use him properly or bench him.

Very entertaining game. If Joelinton could finish we’d have two easily, maybe 3 with one or two other good chances going begging. Leeds could / should also have more than one goal.

Almiron is such an awful finisher. And we’re literally playing with no striker against a team with their 3 first choice centre backs out.
And again.

I only know as I’m into my fantasy football so keep a close eye on fixtures. It’s a sign of how uninterested I am that I’ll be quite happy if Raphina scores tonight…
You got your wish! <laugh>

And Almiron in CM. Oh how the mind boggles
I am actually starting to think that maybe Bruce is trying to get fired.

ah **** sake. didn't know we were playing today. Mood ruined Same here. It is a sign of how uninvested I am in the club these days that I didn't know we were playing tonight or which team we were playing this weekend. Whereas I used to know the ins and outs of our fixtures two or three months ahead...

Re: Newcastle v Leeds Match Thread

Back to back away games coming up too, Watford and Wolves.

Imagine we win tonight then beat Watford, Bruce will be safe for the season on the back of top 6 form like that <laugh>

Re: Newcastle v Leeds Match Thread

Leeds have no centre backs, nufc have no strikers. The stoppable object meets the movable force... Leeds have no centre backs = Bruce sets us up with 5 at the back to defend for 90 mins. This is the game to go for them, Cooper is s**** and Ayling isn't a CB but will likely have to play there. Can't...
