Having watched the highlights, anyone saying Dubravka needs dropped is a moron, he inspires so much more confidence when dealing with crosses and corners that Darlow ever would.
There are people saying that? Good grief. The number of matches he's kept the team in, and as you said, he made an immediate, obvious improvement to the confidence and organization the backline play with.

I haven’t heard anyone saying he shouldn’t be dropped, not even on the home of the twats (Twitter).
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

Deffo saved more points than he's lost.

Almiron might be as physically capable as Perez, just saying.

Perez get knocked off the ball if someone looks at him, Almiron isn't much stronger in the few games I saw him in.

To be fair, in this case this happened. Not quite a call for a dropping, but worth a rebuttal:

Not the first time Dubravka has cost us a game this season. Doubt he'll be scrapped like the others were though.

I'd take him out at dawn, offer him a cigarette and a blindfold, tie his arms to the goal post and then let Kenedy take a shot at him.

He'll live but he'll know he let the lads down.

They've written so many articles lately that have pissed me off. Just a factory of hot takes. <fist>

Surely in the age of forums The Mag is a waste of time? Most of the articles are just s*** blogs saying nothing new whatsoever.

Yeah the Mag is a hideous site (there's quite a few unfortunately) what CFB and Benny said reminded me of that article and the whole clickbait/mock rage thing.

Their article last week titled "I can see how this Miguel Almiron signing is going to play out – Newcastle United haven’t bought Lionel Messi" was particularly galling, combining all of the worst parts of NUFC blogging.
