  1. Real tough run of fixtures and we get to see where we are - and it's not where we want to be! Redshite next. Need to be a shit tonne better than this to even get a sniff. Be nice to just ensure they don't win it at our place, so to speak. Just hope for a big midfield overhaul this summer. I mean, like, 90% of funds ploughed into midfield!!!
  2. Bad day at the office. We still have an inferiority complex against the typical top 6 sides. We've seen this for years, so it ain't gonna change in a matter of months under anyone. It's more frustrating when we were edging so close to the top 6. We can still make it but it's a tough ask. Still, massively glad to have Carlo here and really looking forward to the Summer when he gets a fair chance in the market. That midfield needs urgent attention. I think, hope, we plough big funds into the midfield because, in my opinion, sorting that area out will make a huge difference alone.
  3. Are we allowed to say that yet?! I know we weren't allowed about 6 - 8 week ago!!!
  4. With our midfield, you just know that if any of our defenders have an off game, we are in trouble. Getting mauled in midfield, with Sidibe being Sidibe. Hard to get anything out if these games.
  5. I guess with January loans, by the time they settle etc, most of the season is gone. And possibly with Gomes making a much better recovery than anticipated, they thought we'd get on with it for now. But, overall, as has been proven, the real needed quality just isnt there in January. I'd rather we give a kid a chance if need be, rather than some non interested cast off player.
  6. I was thinking last night that I'm pretty glad we didn't bring anyone in as I was sure most of our January signings have been shit, or overpriced. In most cases, both. Was gonna look back to find out but Dunc has put that great post up there. Real shite signings. We don't need to panic. We aint far off 5th. And let's be honest, if we were to finish even 6th this season, it would be bloody well welcomed. Hell, 7th wouldn't be sniffed at! Big summer coming up I reckon.
  7. Nah. He went to City mate. Would have been a goodun though.
  8. Unbelievable football, isn't it? I was ready to go through 2 players in particular today for being so wasteful, Walcott and Delph. In the end, they both helped us to victory!!!
  9. I get where you're coming from here, I do. I get where MarkJazz is trying to go. I get the angle of most. We all have an opinion. But, I'm sorry, but my perception in not based just on this game. Carlo has done this in several games and we've started to buckle. It's a dangerous method for us. And I've commented on it in other game threads and in his own thread. I've never really been one to pop off about subs - you can fact check this in other threads. But, honestly, you could see this coming. That s why I'm so frustrated. One, you could see it coming. Two, it feels like Carlo i
  10. No No, it's fair enough. Wish I wasn't as pissed off.
  11. I'm not sure you're reading that right mate??? That s the Newcastle Captain talking about us...Where have you got that I think they were going for it from?!!! What you on about?! This is one of those hopeless convos I think.
  12. Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles speaking to Match of the Day: "It's probably one of the weirdest game I’ve been involved in. "They were the better team but we’ve come back from being two goals down and that shows the spirit and courage in this team. So we’re pleased with that. "The work ethic carries on throughout all the game. They dropped off and allowed us to play, which benefited us towards the end of the game. We had good subs as well." Nah lad. Won't be anything to do with the subs. Irrelevant.
  13. Erm....you sure it's a once in a lifetime happening?! Are you really sure? Once in a decade?! Hmmmm.
