Re: Match day thread _ Watford v NUFC

The evolution of the Bruce hate is hilarious Beginning of the season = we are only doing well because its Rafas team and Rafas tactics. <grr> Middle of the season = these tactics are s***, Bruce cant manage. <grr> End of the Season = OMFG forget the run of form that's seen us to comfortable safety,...

Re: Match day thread _ Watford v NUFC

Schar has actually been terrible in this second half. I was thinking because of his passing and technique he could play in midfield but he's been out maneuvered, too slow on the ball / recovery balls / ball winning and just seems too lightweight / passive to play there he should stick to CB we shoul...

Re: Match day thread _ Watford v NUFC

Danny Rose isn’t playing s***, he just is s***. For him, he’s playing averagely. This. Even for 5 million we shouldn't buy him. Get Jetro back! <ok> Decent first half, we look good in patches and ASM chance at 1-0 up could have been a game changer because at 2-0 I see Watford folding up ala Bournem...

Re: Match day thread _ Watford v NUFC

That midfield pairing is terrifying. I think Schar is a decent DM tbh but he didn't have a good game at City.. let's see how it goes. This line-up looks better than Weds and we got Miggy / ASM back with Gayle upfront.. attacking potency <diva> <awe> Watford to win 3-1. Welbeck brace and Deeney head...

Buendia looks good, he's right up there in the league for chances created which is amazing giving where Norwich are in the league.
This. I would look into buying one of Buendia, Max Aarons, Ben Godfrey and Cantwell. All look too good for the Championship and all under 25 with potential.

Re: Match day - Man City v Newcastle United

I'd fine a lot of those **** a weeks wages. Some of the play was absolutely inexcusable. You are getting spanked and you are still scared to play a forward ball. So many gutless players out there today. This. Have to blame the management and the negative formation / tactics that were instructed to ...

Re: Match day - Man City v Newcastle United

Bruce f***ed up here. Should have stuck with 4 at the back with Schar / Fernandez and left Kraft out.. if you're going to play countering football against then you need fast attackers in the absence of Miggy / ASM.. instead he puts Ritchie who isn't the fastest of wingers, Shelvey's who's slow as **...

https://twitter.com/NUFC/status/1280894460449247232?s=19 Someone work it out. Farth in a back 3/5? Or one of the full backs in Santon style CM? Would have preferred someone like M.Longstaff or Muto getting a start in a 4-2-3-1 / 4-3-3 formation instead of Kraft playing CB but it is what it is it's ...

Re: Match day thread - NUFC v West Ham

Felt like a no risks approach to the end of that, frustrating but with the quick turn around of games probably sensible, draw is a good result still, probably could have taken all 3 but probably wasn't worth it all things considered. We looked tired, wouldn't mind us just resting players for city a...

I'd have went with Lazaro over Joe but otherwise I'm happy with that line up.
This

Lazaro Miggy ASM
Joelinton

Would be interesting.. but Gayle's been in decent form recently so he deserves his place.

Re: Match day thread - Bournemouth v NUFC

I do like Lazaro, I just don't know if he's best played as a winger in this league, just seems like he needs a little extra pace to be effective. Wouldn't mind seeing him trialled as a 10, was a decent finish and run for his goal and he never looked like missing, could be a bit like Wijnaldum was f...

Re: Match day thread - Bournemouth v NUFC

See him complaining at Miggy for the good through ball, because he didn't put back spin on for his slow arse. He's far too slow to play in CAM. Hopefully that's the last we see of it. It's awful. Think there were 3 times he was played through, 1 was admittedly overhit but twice Ake just casually jo...

Re: Match day thread - Bournemouth v NUFC

Great performance overall. I knew Lazaro had some hidden quality he hadn't been able to show yet.. must be a reason why Inter bought him and Leipzig wanted him he's got good pace, movement and judging by that goal he can finish too. ASM MOTM in my opinion but Longstaff played terrific in that attack...

Re: Match day thread - Bournemouth v NUFC

Joelinton looks so much more comfortable with another striker up front This. What a performance.. yes Bournemouth have been piss poor but this 4-4-2 formation suits us so much we look much more of a threat, keeping possession better, looking organised and looking like a solid unit in defense. It's ...

Re: Match day thread - Bournemouth v NUFC

Almiron and Ritchie benched so good options to bring on in the last 20 minutes and stretch tired legs. This. Miggy's been a bit off form lately anyway so it's good to give him a break and freshen things up. I personally don't like Joelinton playing out wide he's not got the attributes of a out and ...

Re: Match day thread - Bournemouth v NUFC

Brucey playing the mind games. Saying it was impossible for ASM to play and then starting him. Will be intresting to see how we line up with those players. Unless he's changing formation to a 4-3-3, I'd guess it'll be: Dubravka Krafth Lascelles Fernandez Manquillo Bentaleb Shelvey StMaximin Longsta...

Re: Match day thread - Bournemouth v NUFC

Bournemouth to win 2-1. Joelinton to score for us. Would be happy with a draw though and a win would be a bonus / definitely secured safety (mathematically) ? What line-up would people go for? Seeing Bruce's comments he's looking to do some rotation and for the sake of keeping things fresh as we hav...

Re: New squad after potential takeover

This summaries my opinion. Shaqiri would be a excellent signing. A front three of him, Miggy and ASM on the wing would be explosive and if they had a quality striker to supply the ammunition to even better. <diva> <whistle> I think someone like Edouard from Celtic would be realistic and work well f...

Re: New squad after potential takeover

I hope we do explore signing Willems, he looked like the lb we've been missing for years until that bad injury. Rose clearly past his best, and comes across as a bit of a nob to boot. Lazaro would be an upgrade on Atsu, but I'm not sure we should necessarily just take the first option. If (hopefull...
