Huddersfield v NUFC
20 August 2017 12:02 Post ID: #482385
Dont know what to expect but if the players follow the game plan as well as they did against Spurs then we'll get something. A game plan that wont have involved any red cards.

I would start Merino in my XI.

Not sure what to expect today if truth be known, I work with a dog botherer and he says they are a different team to last year, the signings they have made have settled in well, playing with confidence as well as creating and scoring goals too. (pre season and opener for the season). Those factors do not bode well for us, but hope they get something on the road.
What i do like about their club is they have a chairman who backs his manager and acknowledges the fans, he has froze the price of a season ticket to the same as the championship price if i think you have had a season ticket for 5 years. Rewards the people who have stayed loyal, and is a nice gesture.

I think Wagner will have learnt from last season and will not just rely on possession football but will go a bit longer today. To have to play Mbemba and Lascelles centre half and push Clark to left back in only our second game tells you all you need to know. Our centre halfs from our relegation season already our first choice.

Despite using Ritchie on the left to try to protect him Mbemba at left back isn't working. It's a huge vulnerability.

I reckon we must be one of the most lightweight teams in the league, probably the most. Far too easily outmuscled all over the pitch.

Think he's done ok Mick. By and large stopped the cross, does give away a lot of throws and corners . Atsu's done nothing to support him .

Better finish, to the half, Hayden getting into the game, pretty toothless upfront as we all knew we would be with Gayle in this league, far far too lightweight. With Atsu and Ritchie both capable of good crosses Benitez really needs to make a change at the top and offer them more options. Huddersfield are plainly Shiite as well if they're not up here by halftime, we're pretty shite ourselves unfortunately.

An atrocious first 20 minutes from Newcastle United, gradually clawed our way back into it . Desperately need a physical presence in central midfield. When we do attack our play has been a little better than than Huddersfield unfortunately we've set up like we're playing a top four side . Gayle's been atrocious doesn't look fully fit (what's happened to him working along the back four as he did so well last season?). Merino's been quiet and got away with a bad error. Might be worth seeing what this new lad from Stoke can do uptop.

He's been anonymous and constantly given it away cheaply. These are shite and no matter how poor we've been a couple more players been on their game and we'd at least be level here.

We're still suffering from the years of mismanagement. It's a mash up of the squad that got relegated and the side that won the Championship with some cheapo foreign imports and an unproven championship player. We're now six points behind Huddersfield if things stay as they are and we're two games in . This is the bulk of the squad/side (i'm not listing new players as they've had two games)

Elliot = Not good enough

Mbemba= Not good enough

Clark = Bad game undecided on him long term

Lascelles = very poor form needs to shape up quickly or ship out

Hayden = too lightweight needs to play with someone stronger

Shelvey = bald lunatic liability, mobility's shite, good passer if he's on his game

Atsu = not good enough

Ritchie = always gives everything, good enough,

Perez = not good enough

Gayle = injury prone , unfit, not good enough, when fit and on form jury's out at this level , awful today

Mitrovic = full head of hair lunatic, not good enough

Diame = not good enough

Colback = never been good enough

I know Mick, said that earlier, we're simply unequipped and underfunded for this league, the fat cunt will obviously be content with another relegation fight as he thinks it's easy coming back up. He knows nothing about football and I hope we plummet.

He's been ok as the game's gone on , but he's a square peg in a round hole making a go of it today . He was largely crap when he played in The Championship and was part of the side that took us down . He's not good enough for this level .

Mbemba's always been a good player in my book, in danger of being surrounded by shite much like Coloccini was, when that happens you constantly get dragged out of position. Merino' s shown some nice touches for a first game at this level and Ritchie is plainly quality. That aside the rest of them have struggled against Huddersfield. If Hayden has ambitions at this level then he's some way to improve.

Rafa's not blameless in this, if we'd had a good go at them early we may well of got something , the side simply wasn't on the pitch mentally the first twenty minutes and that's on the manager. Today was as bad as anything served up under McClaren.

Agreed, if you lack quality in this league at least test your opponent and have a go, he could've started with Gayle, Joselu and Murphy and had a go, you never know what attacking pressure can do to the opposition, but when you don't even trouble them then there's only ever gonna be one outcome.

Going down!

Ashley clearly doesn't fucking learn, that's what happens when you buy bargain basement players that have barely played 3 games for their previous clubs.

He wants to dip his hands in his pockets because if that team end up in the bottom 3 after 10 games they won't get out of it. Rafa will be gone and Pardew will be back along with Joke Kinnear as Director of Fookall!
