Newcastle United 2-3 Tottenham Hotspur - 17/10/21


Recommended Posts

Back from the game - went how I thought it would.  1st 10 minutes the atmosphere carried the players.  After that Spurs just knocked it around us like a training match.   Joelinton - shit.   Hes not a winger, has no pace, piss poor shot on him and basically gave the ball away so many times.  Richie is not a left back.   Shelvey - well we all know he is a tit.

 

One thing though - Staveley looked proud as punch when at the start of the game.   She cares.   Hopefully they peddle Bruce tomorrow and we can start the rebuild as Wor Flags said.

Thought Joelinton was fantastic those first ten minutes. :lol:

 

Still a big nowt, like. Bloke will never have a position. He's just a man who can kick a ball a bit; genuinely dunno if he'd be any worse at full-back than he is at LW or CF.

About 4 posters on here did. But they also mentioned Shelvey and Darlow getting called up too, so….

 

That's not true, mind. He was looking very good under Rafa and at that time Maguire was getting his first call ups and there were plenty of voices questioning Maguire being called up over Lascelles. Which was fair at the time imo. Obviously not been the case in a while though.

Had he continued to develop, under Rafa, he probably would have been called up. Nobody really knew his ceiling at that time.

That early goal was a lovely moment, has to be said. I loved the emotion in those early moments. Wor Flags, the noise, Yasir looking genuinely overwhelmed by the occasion with his young lass at his side, that rapid move across the pitch and, as Manquillo ran onto it, you just knew it was going in once he delivered it. Cue jubilation and the pictures of people in the owners seats who weren't Ashley and Charnley, going bonkers and reaching an incredible crescendo of these past 10 days. It was tremendous and I actually felt a bit emotional. 

 

What followed was everything that those moments weren't. Dour, dire, dismal - Ashley, Bruce.

He's so bad at executing what he's done well to get in a position to do. Was far too many examples today of him doing really well to get in a good position with a good touch, or holding it up, or beating someone, only to then play a horrible pass in an excellent situation.

Mad how we have Schar and Fernandez on the bench and we're still persisting with Clark. I bet Bruce loves him

 

Darlow, Lascelles, Clark, Hayden, Shelvey, Ritchie. :lol: Might as well chuck Gouffran and Anita in ffs.

Debatable, mate. :lol:

Agree. I remember being worried at one stage a big club would come in for him. In hindsight we probably didn't see his weaknesses, or maybe Rafa just masked them well, but at the same time, he's probably not as bad as he's looked under Bruce.

Some of his all-round game does occasionally give me hope that under an actual coach he might become a halfway decent player.  Then he'll trip over his own feet.

Willock was really bad today as well, not that one man makes a central midfield. 

Agreed. Ndombele was brilliant for them but we gave him the freedom of the pitch

Imagine how fucking incredible it'll be in a few years time to see a teamsheet with 20 names on it that didn't play for us in the 2016/17 Championship season. 

Sooner, please.

 

Clark and Hayden have regressed so much since the last time I was at SJP. Yards off it today. Darlow remains utterly garbage, as well.

Completely disagree with Hayden, think he's the only player in CM who can actually do a semblance of a job.
