  1. Newcastle Utd versus Southhampton

    You think? We had 27% possession against an average team. They had numerous chances to score and it's really only Dubravka who prevented that. We only managed a couple of attacks all game. It could have easily went the same way as the Villa game imo.
  2. Newcastle Utd versus Southhampton

    We could have easily got no points from the last two games and it wouldn't have been undeserved. We can't continue to play this badly and keep winning games, our inspired manager needs to come up with a plan to put the pressure back on the opposition when we're playing the other weaker sides. That said a wins and win and it's difficult to be anything other than very happy with 7 points from the last three games.

    I see tory boy has resigned.
  4. Mr Potato Heeds Lads v The Wilder the Better

    Yeah I agree Shelvey doesn't help, I actually think Ki keeps possession better when he's on his game, which unfortunately isn't regularly enough. Getting the ball up to Rondon quickly might have made some sense but what are we doing now? Shelvey doesn't play every game and you can probably look over the last 3 seasons and we'll barely have a game that we had the lions share of possession. So if we have players capable keeping possession why don't we? Like you I think we need a good defensive midfielder.
  5. Mr Potato Heeds Lads v The Wilder the Better

    I actually agree with a lot of what Wilder said. When he says it after his team didn't play to the whistle, something you're told to do at school let alone when you're a professional footballer, and they've thrown away a game, it just sounds like sour grapes. VAR is still shite and will kill the game.
  6. Mr Potato Heeds Lads v The Wilder the Better

    I can't say that I've seen any evidence of our midfield being able to keep the ball mind. If they can why aren't they? Have Rafa's and now Bruces tactics been to purposely give away possession? Sean Longstaff maybe the one who could change this but not alongside Hayden.
  7. Yes Gemmill...

    Had he good sense not to support them though. RIP. Seems like he was a really good bloke too.
  8. The Cricket Thread

    Aye Root doesn't seem to be a very good captain. Some of his field set ups and use of bowlers seems to be way off. It's difficult to imagine who else could replace him though. We've got quite a few players now (the openers, Denly, Pope, Curran, Archer) who are very inexperienced when it comes to international cricket and I'm not sure if any of them have ever captained a team. The leaves Broad who would certainly waste all our DRS appealing his own balls, Stokes or Butler as options. There's not an obvious replacement there.
  9. a match today... one team v another

    Was actually a good game for once. They play some decent football and were all over us for the first 30 minutes or so but we dug in a played some good football ourselves after that. Almiron managing to hit ASM was comical. I'm beginning to feel sorry for the fucker now, it's not like he's doing a massive amount wrong when he's getting these chances, most of the time he hits the target (albeit without any great power) and if it had been anyone else they'd have had at least a couple by now. He needs a goal like Clark's, if he'd hit that well the keeper probably would have saved it. And in case I've not mentioned it before, VAR is the worst thing that's happened to football since Hillsborough. The celebrations for Yedlin's goal were muted because everyone was waiting for it to be given offside and then we had to wait for ages in the dark without a clue what was going on behind the scenes. It's without doubt going to ruin the atmosphere at games all over the world. And then as was proved yet again yesterday at Anfield, they can't come up with the right decision regardless. Fucking shite!

    Always liked Airheads myself.
  11. These Black and White Shithouses vs. Doritos FC

    It wasn't a particularly bad challenge but he lost control which was why his foot went up at the end caught the player. The way the rule makers have changed things for the worse, that's a sending off now.

    I did wonder if that ending was a bit dramatised mind. This is based on the brothers own book so I would have assumed they would have got to that stage before the book was released. Maybe the book doesn't reveal everything the film does though.

    The synopsis of it gives a lot more away than I have.
  14. Film/moving picture show you most recently watched

    Yeah I think that's the only way they could do it, if they could do it well. I watched Tell Me Who I Am last night on Netflix. Documentary about a bloke who was in a bike accident and couldn't remember anything except his twin brother. His brother told him about their happy family lives but it turns out he lied and there was a dark secret in their past. I was fairly obvious what the basic issue in their past was going to be but when it's actually revealed it's more than I could have imagined. It's a really interesting story and quite horrific. Not exactly a Friday night blockbuster but I'd definitely recommend it.

    Seen the new Terminator film last night. Comfortably the best since T2 which isn't a great surprise since its the first one since then that's had Linda Hamilton (who looks fucking old now by the way). Being the best of the rest Terminator film doesn't necessarily mean that much given the quality of the others but this is certainly a decent effort. The guy playing the terminator this time around isn't as menacing as Arnie in the original or Robert Patrick in T2 and I'm not really sure the new technology makes any sense whatsoever or is of much use, but the female leads and Arnie make up for all that. Unfortunately I can't see there ever being a great Terminator film again. I think the technological leap in the terminator in T2 meant that he was so close to invincible that it becomes really difficult to create a story and wow factor that can ever live up to the first two films. Camerons involvement improved this one and if he were to direct again then that might lift it a bit but I doubt that will ever happen.
