Re: Match day thread - NUFC v a**hole villa

I'm almost at the point where I don't care anymore. I’m there. I actually don’t mind watching us play because I don’t care. When the opposition scores I barely even bat an eyelid. Literally nothing. This. <applause> Not watching the second half.. no point. My prediction of 3-1 is looking likely.. b...

Re: Match day thread - NUFC v a**hole villa

BBC sport have it as a 5-4-1 with Wilson on the left... he isn’t that much of an idiot is he? They just guess. Sky had it as 3-5-2 with Hayden in the back three. Could work.. might be better than a 4-4-2. Manquillo/Lewis as wing-backs & Miggy in a ''free role'' behind Carroll / Wilson. Darlow Hayde...

Re: Match day thread - NUFC v a**hole villa

Two up front and no one who can put crosses into the box. This. Murphy / Ritchie over Hendrick any day of the week, especially with a aerial threat like Carroll. But Mr. Cabbage Kebab man knows what's best. <erk> <urgh> Why on earth persist with a midfielder who's not a winger when you have two nat...

Re: Match Thread: Arsenal v Newcastle (Easy 3 points)

I seriously don't see were our next point will come from.. Villa are on a roll this season, Leeds as unpredictable as they can be will out-gun us again and Everton this season look like top four contenders. Next winnable game is against Palace but by that time we'll be in trouble and in a real dogfi...

Re: Match Thread: Arsenal v Newcastle (Easy 3 points)

We have zero pattern of play. Just random and s****. Jonjo Shelvey is a liability. No one looks bothered. Bruce has lost the dressing room. This. No structure, no style of play, no identity and no ambition. Manquillo & Murphy need to come back into the team.. we miss ASM's pace, unpredictability an...

Re: Match Thread: Arsenal v Newcastle (Easy 3 points)

4-4-2 with inverted wingers is an odd move. I'd like to see Murphy and quite possibly Ritchie on at some point, get some crosses in. This. Especially with Carroll on the field.. you need wingers that can deliver the ammunition to him. Haven't been too bad but still negative.. no passes forward, eve...

Re: Match Thread: Arsenal v Newcastle (Easy 3 points)

THE GLOVES ARE OFF AND ITS AS BAFFLING AS EVER. Gone are the negative tactics of 'more defensive players = better defending', say hello to 'more strikers = more goals' Is it a 433 with two strikers out wide, or a 442 with a striker and a central attacking mid as traditional wingers? maybe there's a...

Re: Match Thread: Sheffield Utd v Newcastle

Gerrard in the summer could have potential but not sure he would come under Ashley. Apparently he was one of those sounded out before we ended up with Bruce. More pressingly though, there's no guarantee we will still be in the top flight come the summer. I haven't really paid much attention to the ...

Re: Match Thread: Sheffield Utd v Newcastle

Someone in the mould of Graham Potter would make a lot of sense, although I don't personally know a lot of names. Someone capeable of building the team and developing their own system. And even if we did go down, capeable of keeping the team together and coming back up. Like Dyche at Burnley. Appar...

Re: Match Thread: Sheffield Utd v Newcastle

What were the odds on Sheffield to win ? Should've put a good £100 on them would have been a quick easy double flip. <urgh> 6/4. Missed out on a easy £150 profit.. <urgh> . Could have got more as 1-0 correct score would have been predictable. Anyways.. good night from me. Bruce Out. No excuses no m...

Easiest £60 I've ever made. Should have put more money on us to lose.

Re: Match Thread: Sheffield Utd v Newcastle

What bothers me most is my complete apathy. I can't even muster the enthusiasm to get angry anymore. I am so close to not giving a s*** about this club. This. It's like I'm angry but I don't care at the same time. The Championship should be fun.. our only saving grace is West Brom & Sheffield Unite...

Re: Match Thread: Sheffield Utd v Newcastle

All good luck has run out. Goodnight. Bruce needs to go but unlikely it'll happen.. relegation beckons. Oh well at least that will mean actually mean going forward for games and trying to be positive, winning and playing some half decent football instead of this negative football with no plan, struc...

Re: Match Thread: Sheffield Utd v Newcastle

Fraser looks like a player who wants out. Genuinely looked like he knew what he was doing there. This has been a f***ing s*** show. Pathetic This. I wouldn't be surprised he wants out from this negative Bruce shitshow, but very clueless and stupid by Fraser. If you didn't know and swapped positions...

Re: Match Thread: Sheffield Utd v Newcastle

Bruce would take. a draw now if offered , that’s my issue with him. Overriding negativity and containment. I would love to see us use pace and width and batter three past this lot .........however <erm> This. But it won't happen. Looks like a 3-5-2 formation but we all know it's going to be a rigid...

Re: Match Thread: Arsenal v Newcastle (FA Cup 3rd Round)

Matt Ritchie is beyond terrible now. He's had a horrible season. He's not a fullback or wingback, despite Bruce's insistence in putting him back there. I'm grateful for his first few seasons with us, both in getting us promoted and keeping us up in the first year back in the Prem, but his best is d...

Much as I like bits to his play, I'd bite someones hand off if they offered £20m for Joelinton.
This. I'll be surprised if anyone offers that though in this current climate.. more like 10 - 15 million at most.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (January 2021)

Linked to Josh King, out of contract in summer so probably wouldn’t cost too much and a decent player. I'll take him. He'll be a better option than any of our current forwards apart from Wilson (who he has that Bournemouth connection with) so building chemistry with him won't take long at all and h...

Re: Match Thread: Newcastle v Leicester

Opposition manager masterplan: Let them have some posession as they've no f***ing clue what to do when that happens. Once again we were industrious for about 10 minutes of the game and we scored. Quite how this a**hole of a manager can't see that continued effort and attack causes problems for the ...
