Be interesting to see how we perform away from home, because we simply don’t at St James’.

Be interesting to see how Stoke play albeit that they rested so many players vs Chelsea - this result could break Hughes if they don’t win (He will be under an awful lot of pressure)

At least December is over, having mean our worst month of the season for decades now. Let's see what the window brings.

Interesting selection. Diame again?

Looks like Ritchie might be in the number 10 role. At least we have a good bit of speed on the counter today.

Going with no strikers may be the answer or not.
I think Crouch may cause us problems in the air at the back.
No excuses now time to step up.

He simply doesn’t know his best midfield 4, it’s pot luck as the West Ham game proved. Merino rested after running himself into the ground 2 days ago.

There seems to be very little difference in the system for home and away matches from what I can see.

I always feel we have a better chance under rafa away from home though,especially if we score first.

All the away team have to do at SJP is sit back and wait.

As the Brighton game showed,they know they won't be pressed.

I'd be happy a point today.

The reason there's very little difference in the system is because we set up and play like an away team when we are at home and constantly having a mentality to play for a draw has came back to haunt us on more than one occasion.

Stoke are really shit and low on confidence, the standard in this league is really poor this season, some awful sides ourselves included obviously. Can’t remember sitting through so many lousy games, Sky should well be worried.

I don't care about working hard the finishing is abysmal. Clark blasts over from 2 yards.

He’s really been exposed in this league, can’t defend, can’t head, constantly loses his man, can barely pass sideways 5 yards.

Lack of a footballing brain anywhere yet again, can’t even draw a free kick from Joe Allen then in the corner. Merino needed now.

Fascinating game. Darlow MOTM for me. Rafa's strategy might be totally right for the squad, noting that since Lascelles has come back, we have conceded 5 in 6, including against Arsenal and City.

In Murphy, we can now see why his fee was merited. The diagonal run outside gave a chance for support to get in the box.

However, our striking options showed by we will not score 2 or more in a game unless against weak opposition. Rafa's job is progressing well in organising the defence, when the squad is fully fit. In the window, we desperately need quality going forward so we can get the goals to push up away from danger.

We haven't conceded more than 2 goals when Lascelles has been in the team this season.
7 points from the 4 Xmas fixtures is a decent return but had it been 5 or less I would be fearing the worst. As it is we have a chance, maybe not much of a chance according to the bookies but we are still hanging in.

I suspect they will if we get a decent striker in the window
