We've been dull for about 7 years <urgh>
2011-12 season seems so long ago now...I don't care how inconsistent those attacking players were, damn if it wasn't fun to watch when they were clicking.

Re: Match day thread - NUFC v BHA

Anything less than 3 points here is unacceptable. This. If you fail to beat any of Norwich (A), Watford (H) or Brighton (H) then you are in big trouble. 3 points is a must today. Scoreline, performance etc are irrelevant as long as we get 3 points. Big AC being back is a bonus. Means theoretically ...

Who is it inspiring to actually buy the f***ing thing though? Mackems and Richard Keys?
Mackems can't read, don't be silly
Neither can Richard Keyes, for that matter.

Re: Newcastle vs Watford

Where has this Newcastle been? Looking immense here, all over them. Can see why Watford have had a poor start to the season though. Hope we don't regret some of these missed chances. Forster been in good form since the goal, save from Hayden was brilliant. We look good value for the win at the minute.

Re: Newcastle vs Watford

Not good enough for the first team if we want to progress. Theres a world of difference between that and wanting to get rid Apart from he’s easily good enough for the first team. I think a lot of the talk was trading him in for a better model. A swap deal plus cash for Ryan Fraser was mentioned, I ...

Re: Newcastle vs Watford

I've a feeling Fernandez will start, not sure Lascelles is fully fit yet, and the former doesn't exactly deserve to be dropped. Who will play at LWB could be interesting, likely will be Willems. Unless Dummett moves across with Schar Fernandez Lascelles in the middle? I think ASM is supposed to be o...

Didn't Bruce say it was a mistake to name four defenders and no midfield cover on the bench last weekend?

Re: Match thread - Norwich V NUFC

No s*** he made a mistake, baffling. Playing a new player out of position after naming an overly defensive bench. Supposedly hired Bruce for his prem experience, and because no one else wanted the job, yet he's making glaring errors on day one. Obviously he needs time to settle in but he hasn't sta...

Re: Match thread - Norwich V NUFC

This will be a real tough one. Norwich will be right up for it, and I'm not so sure I can say the same for our boys. Despite his mistake, I'd start Willems at LWB. I would like us to go with Joelinton Almiron and ASM to start but I reckon it would leave us too short in midfield. Team for me: Dubrav...

Re: Match thread - Norwich V NUFC

Yeah I thought that at the time but then he hardly played (from memory). He didn't, but that's the point of those signings. Useful back up who can go straight in at that level and look fine. Hughton did the same with Hall and Khizanishvili, though Hughton also remembered to just get them on loan so...

Re: Match thread - Norwich V NUFC

I think it'll be the same starting line up as Sunday. ASM has a tight hamstring apparently but Shelvey is fit according to SB's press conference this morning. Also said he made a mistake playing Willems in CM so there will likely be a CM on the bench. No s*** he made a mistake, baffling. Playing a ...

Re: Match thread - Norwich V NUFC

Dubravka Schar Lascelles Dummett Manquillo Ki Longstaff Willems Saint-Maximim Almiron Joelinton Darlow, Ritchie, Clark, Hayden, Shelvey, Muto, Gayle. Bench can be rotated a bit, but I'd like to see that. Maybe swap Ki and Hayden around. Away or not this is the kind of game where we need get points o...

Yeah I think that's the supposed reason for the leniency, admitting at first instance. Chelsea got a bigger fine as well.
