Re: Match day thread - Watford v NUFC

Been in north Wales all day and not seen/heard anything other than the score.

What was the overall performance? Was it 5 at the back with Hayden again? Any positives?

Re: The Managerial Merry-Go-Round Thread

<laugh> This is why I have never had any sympathy for a top level manager. It's the perfect job. You do well, you get well paid, fans love you, happy days. You do badly, you get well paid, fans don't like you but hey, you're a millionaire. You do very badly, you get fired (unless you're Steve Bruce)...

Re: Team for Watford

I wish we’d sold Schar and kept Lejuene who’s infinitely better I think. Every time I’ve seen Schar lately he’s seemed like a complete liability, much like most of the team I guess.

Re: The Message of Hate Thread

Messy house guests. Admittedly I don't like mess, it stresses me out, but some basic standards for some wouldn't go amiss. A mate of mine is staying for a few days, I had to go into his room earlier as that's where the home office that I work from is set up and the lazy bastard had left his wet towe...

Re: The Managerial Merry-Go-Round Thread

Roberto Martinez favourite if/when Koeman gets the boot. Speculation that long term assistant Graeme Jones would join him there. That would be a jump up for him haha. What's the point in going from Koeman to Martinez <laugh> Martinez falls into the Southgate bracket. Looks alright as a national tea...

Can’t say I’ve followed their issues that closely, but definitely thought he only got the job because of his Barcelona history, but that’s usually the way Barcelona have done things in the past.

I'm going controversial here and actually playing players in their preferred positions, which is crazy I know.
Willock is an attacking mid not a centre mid <erm>

If we play wingers, Fraser in with a shout?
In that case Almiron defo gets benched in favour of Willock <laugh>

Re: Team for Watford

Ah, Longstaff in CM then (who I thought looked okay in the second half especially against Leeds).

Please not <hendrick>

Team for Watford

What are people's preferred line-ups for Watford? In the hope that Bruce abandons the 5 at the back that clearly isn't working now I'm going for: <darlow> <manq> <lascelles> <fernandez> <lewis> <murph> <willock> <hayden> <saintmaximin> <almiron> <gayle> I'm going controversial here and actually play...

Re: Newcastle United - The Embodiment of ticking along.

Listened to a bit of Shearer's interview with Carroll, he says Joelinton is great in training, plays out wide, does really well, scores all kinds of goals but is played out of position in matches. I can see where he's coming from. When you watch games there's almost a reluctance from Joelinton to ru...

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

I think Watford away is key too. A not great Wolves team went there and won 2-0, yes they beat Norwich but I don't think that's really a massive surprise.

Re: The Managerial Merry-Go-Round Thread

I know Steve Cooper is supposed to be a great manager and all, but I can't help feeling he looks like he's had a frontal lobotomy... Reminds me a bit of Ed Miliband eating a sandwich. I hadn't realised Cooper left Swansea at the end of last season. Did a decent job there, could be an interesting ap...

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.
