NUFC v Brighton
29 December 2017 14:53 Post ID: #486538
Out injured for this game is Rob Elliot with a thigh injury but returning is Isaac Hayden.

Karl Darlow is most likely to be in nets but it cant be far off Freddie Woodman getting a game, maybe Luton next weekend.

Agreed. I think our best team has to have Lascelles, Mbemba, Hayden, Merino, Atsu and Richie in it. After that its a struggle to fill any of the other places for me. Even those 6 are barely adequate standard. They would be fine if there were true premiership class players in the missing spots.

For some reason this feels like a pivotal game to me, win it and we move on, lose it and...........it doesn't look promising.

Don't you think they are adequate enough for the likes of Brighton CT ?

Well I think those stats paint the picture pretty well marra, barely adequate against Brighton. Lost away, hopefully win at home. Fingers crossed.

Barely adequate ?

Here's hoping our manager and support are a bit more positive than the picture being painted on this board.

Three points no problem !

So far merely heights how poor we are. Lose this one and we are really in trouble.
Players who talk the talk but so far have not walked the walk.

This home form is becoming a real issue, we have a team full of players without the balls to pass and move and attack infront of a home crowd, Christ that’s what you became a footballer for didn’t you?

Jesus H Christ, a team of frightened little girls who treat the ball like a hot potato whenever it comes near them. This lot are down without investment. It could be argued there’s 3 worse teams, but there’s no way there’s 3 with less character.

Painful first half, two wingers and two upfront yet corner count is 5-0 to Brighton.

Nowt to do with the manager then....

No heart,no pressing and no confidence ...we are using the same static tactic that was employed against man city.

My granny could work this one out,Joselu off..... Mitrovic (oh hold on he's not even on the bench) on.

We are effectively playing 4-4-1

There will be a change in performance once Rafa replaces Joselu,which he will.

It’s the fear of playing at home that gets me, a different side at West Ham the other week, your home form keeps you in the league.

Aye one of the commentators mentioned us dropping off against them in the first half.

Drives me nuts...

Joselu will fight for anything in the air but can't read a 5 yard pass to him, I've thought Dummet's done well since being back , we've two wingers who aren't producing, though I thought Atsu had the beating of their full back first half, and Ritchie seems more concerned with protecting Yedlin.
