Re: Arsenal v Newcastle

I didn't watch all of the second half yesterday, but Almiron certainly looked like he had something to prove when he came on. Lot of energy. Wouldn't be against seeing him start, but suppose it depends on formation and position. He seems to be a bit aimless when played oo central, asking to stay de...

Re: Arsenal v Newcastle

Willock been anonymous today, as has ASM pretty much. This.. Fraser hasn't really done much either. Poor all-round second half performance. Good too see Ritchie and Lascelles suspended. Hopefully this allows Lewis & Fernandez to come back in. Jan can't come sooner. A lot of these players are hard-w...

Re: Arsenal v Newcastle

Oh well, on to Norwich. This. We haven't played too badly but Arsenal's quality shining now. Just hope Wilson doesn't get a yellow. Good chance for Lewis to step up and make a statement against his old club. Would like to see Miggy & Murphy on sooner rather than later for Ritchie/Wilson (don't want...

Re: Arsenal v Newcastle

The thing is with our attack there's goals.. we can score a coupe but with our defence & no defensive protection in midfield we're gonna concede a couple too.. it's like a 50/50 gamble here which could we gain a small - big profit (draw or even better win) if we pressure Arsenal get under them & go ...

Re: Arsenal v Newcastle

I do worry that our CM will just be completely bypassed by Arsenal but **** it, we’d probably lose anyway so might as well have a go! This. Looks like a attacking line-up.. seems like this could either be a entertaining 2-2 draw <awe> or a 4-2/5-1 thumping <erk> Would've liked to have seen a more b...

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

Been linked with that Vlahovic a few times, another who would have some better options right now. Our transfer business will be massively effected by the next month, need to pick up some wins and look in a decent position to avoid relegation. Would be a top-class signing for sure, as he can easliy ...

Re: Seasons prospects

This. Norwich and Burnley are MUST wins.. if we drop points to them then that's it for us unless we go on some miracle winning streak which is very unlikely. If we get 6 points then yeah we can get through to Jan, steady the ship with a couple quality signings and by then Howe should have stamped h...

Re: Seasons prospects

It is only a 5 point gap still, tho possibly 8 after we lose to Arsenal next weekend depending on other results. I’ll wait until after the Norwich and Burnley games. If we can get 6 points there I think that’ll see us through to January and we’ll stay up. If we don’t win those 2 games I think it’s ...

Re: match day thread - NUFC v Brentford

I'm glad my defence of Joelinton has paid off <laugh> he put together all the good things about him yesterday, he's a grafter and think he was shattered by the end which contributed to that slip in the box, still needs that confidence in front of goal though, probably could have shot first time tow...

Re: match day thread - NUFC v Brentford

Entertaining stuff but we needed the win. Bottom of the league and possibly 7 points from safety tomorrow evening - that Joelinton fluff may prove costly. This is the only downfall from yesterday. Signs of HoweBall look promising though, entertaining and attacking football which is what we want rig...

Re: match day thread - NUFC v Brentford

Schar removes the need for Shelvey to drop so deep so hopefully he plays further forward than normal and give us an ok forward pass to keep us on the front foot. This. It looks like we're going for it and it won't be the s***ty BruceBall 451 formation we're used to. 3-4-3 by the looks of it.. hopin...

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

I wonder if Lindgard would turn up in our club like he did at West Ham... <scratch> I feel like he is certainly someone worth gambling on. Not sure he has the right mindset though, but he looked pissed off and great with the Hammers. I would love a Lindgard who wanted to show ManUtd what he could h...

Re: New Manager: Eddie Howe Confirmed

Based on his press conference, I reckon the team will be something like this tomorrow, possibly more of a 4-4-1-1 with Big Joe dropping deeper than Wilson to link up play. Darlow Manquillo Lascelles Fernandez Ritchie StMaximin Hayden Shelvey Fraser Joelinton Wilson He said Shelvey would be key for ...

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

The Times are linking us with Brozovic, De Vrij and Strakosha. Would love Brozovic here, also bit confused at how strongly we are being linked with a GK, I think Dubravka is more than good enough for the time being, although he is becoming slightly injury prone I suppose. Would all be quality signi...

Re: Brighton v Newcastle match day thread

Absolutely no urgency at all, you’d think we were comfortably mid table and it didn’t matter. This. Jones not really doing any favours with this cautious & defensive BS (Like Bruce never left). Why can't we just go for it.. yeah we may be exposed but at leas it'll be fun & unpredictable watching us...

Never going to happen as it seems Jones has his favourites. But id like us to go with this and just give the game a go. Dubravka Manquillo -- Schar -- Fernandez -- Lewis Willock Hayden Joelinton --- Almiron --- ASM Wilson This.. except I'll play Murphy on the right-hand side to give us more pace th...

Re: Mitrovic

I'm sure there's loads of examples, it seems to happen a lot. Just too big a curve between ability in the two tiers. I think part of it is in the championship the player is tip of the spear in a dominant, attacking team that scores hatfuls and ends up getting promoted. Then in the Premier league it...

Re: Match Thread: chelsea (h)

Christ, Jones is just as bad tactic wise as Bruce. How the f*** can you use the same players that should have been hammered by Palace last weekend?! I thought he would at least do SOMETHING to change it up, but it's still hoof the ball for Wilson as if he was Andy Carroll or give it to ASM and cros...
