NUFC v Leeds
14 April 2017 14:36 Post ID: #478952
Come 9:40pm tonight, it could become very nervy or see the first of the celebration drinks be ready to serve on ice.

Best case scenario today is a win for us and defeats for both Brighton and Huddersfield as unlikely as that sounds. If that did happen we'd be a point clear at the top and 13 over the play off places with only 15 points available for Huddersfield to get.

Mathematically then only needing a win or any sort of point drop for them to gain promotion.

Worst case scenario is obviously a defeat and wins for both rival sides. This scenario would see us 5 points off top and 7 ahead of Huddersfield. Potentially 4 if they won their game in hand with 4 games to play.

As Rafa says though, as long as we concentrate on ourselves then we should be fine. Over to the team now to finish the job.

My predicted XI

Darlow

Yedlin, Hanley, Lascelles, Dummett

Ritchie, Hayden, Shelvey, Atsu

Perez

Murphy

Huddersfield win, in our own hands in any case, there's no time for doubt and nerves. You want to play in the top flight, stand up and be counted, bottle should come easy at home in a night match, if you can't enjoy and perform for these games then you're simply not good enough. Just get fucking stuck in to the Yorkshire twats from the off, no excuses at this stage.

If any club can fuck it up then it's us. If we were more consistent at home we would have been promoted already. That starting X1 that toony predicted doesn't look very good, does it.

Hopefully people will have been on the piss all day and the atmosphere will be lifted. Big change in the modern day game that, the middle classes turning up sober for kick off, helps nobody that nonsense.

It's the only country in Europe who have lost the fans who've made the game what it is. I'm not looking forward one bit to the greed league.. Who does it benefit? The fat cunt, that's who.

You've just seen why Rafa doesn't rate Mbemba . Around 12 mins he brings the ball out of defence and he plays straight to a Newcastle player with two Leeds players around him . He has no footballing intelligence .

Disagree, he's rusty, but defensively sometimes his positioning is excellent, one step ahead of the attackers pass.

If Perez or Mitrovic had the brains to run in at the keeper when Ritchie squared it across goal we'd be one up.

Decent first half after a poor start from Newcastle . We're a far better side with Hayden in. Gouffran has even deigned to show up. Shelvey doesn't look on his game today and Anita is positionally all over the place often being far too central .

Anita's been poor since his return a few weeks back, not enough guile from Mitrovic as usual, when Ritchie get's on the ball only Gouffran seems on his level, Mitro and Perez must gamble more and read him better. Much more positive through the middle with Hayden on the pitch.

The two centre backs are on yellows here, get Murphy on, bit of experience will get one of them sent off or a goal.

Played well but without Gayle we don't have a goalscorer. We had enough chances to be out of sight before the equalizer.

as soon as he brought that ginger cunt on you just knew they would concede, world class manager my fucking arse. His tactics are shite and if they do not go up automatically they won't go up via the play offs.

He took the best player on the night off for that one paced liability Colback, now unless Hayden and Ritchie were injured then that cost us, Mitrovic ran himself into the ground and he should've been the first off for the experience of Murphy. Awful awful decisions those, fucking fuming here.

Fooling around at the corner flag cost us this game. Why change the game with 1 up...Keep on playing instead. Can't blame anyone, but themselves.

Fuck me, that's typical Newcastle. The title looks like it's gone but promotion is looking almost certain and that's all that matters.

It's hard not to overreact as that was a real kick right in the bollocks but the side were perhaps 30 seconds away from everyone saying it was really good performance. Why he brings Colback on I don't know unless Hayden's injured, knowing Rafa it'll be a case of wanting Hayden to be ok for the next game. Colback can turn any positive situation into a negative in matter of moments. I think that's now Brighton's title to lose and if they do end up winning it good luck to them they've been amazing this season . Howay The Lads !

Toony how are you going to spin it so benitez comes out smelling of roses. just admit it mate he is just an ordinary manager who has terrible tactics. No wonder the bindippers/real madrid fans wanted shot of him.

Honestly at the start of the season I thought with him as manager Newcastle would have destroyed this league, but bloody hell to say his tactics are terrible is a fucking understatement.

He is a nice bloke but Christ with an ordinary squad of players he has shown his true capability. Playing his way with world class players might just work but trying the same thing with this quality of players doesn't.

Well the title has gone now barring a major fuck up by Brighton. We have been waiting for Brighton to drop off the pace all season and it hasn't happened so good look to them. Can also see why Rafa wanted reinforcements in January but of course fatty decided we had enough to get back to the greed league. Fatty doesn't give a shite if we are champions or not. It's all academic anyway as Rafa is most likely off in the summer as fatty won't spend the required money to do anything other than aim for 17th place

How is he going to destroy this league with an ordinary squad of players? I agree that I don't like his style of football but at the end of the day we are going up and that's all that matters to a mangers CV and an owners lust for money. As for us fans I don't think I'll even bother going to any games next season. The greed league bores the fuck out of me.
