I hope we start playing the teams that these other "contenders" must have played because that's another fucking shit team sent packing with only a half-decent but solid performance.

 

 

Chopra tried too hard and he may be their best player but I had to laugh when he kept coming deep to get the ball as if he's a good player.

 

I'm also a bit concerned about Barton being too laid back and going through the motions - did okay but I just feel he needs to find some other gears.

 

Also in response to that Place review which said we got all the decisions because of our "name" I couldn't help thinking we got bookings today because of who was involved - and that Bothroyd should have a a yellow for being a whinging, cheating little shit.

Poor game but the points more important than anything else, Smith was constant battler, gave his all and took one for the team at the end, good job we have Butt coming back, Nolan and Barton were poor today, Lovenkrands went missing the moment he came on.

 

The formation didn't help, Ranger needs someone to feed off, another spirited performance from Ranger, worked hard upfront and tracked back.

Pretty much agree with that. I think Ranger showed a mature performance, not sure what else we could have expected from him. smith was my motm, done what mattered.

agree with that. ranger put in a good shift but looked out of his depth playing up front on his own with little support from midfield. i'd drop barton next game or move him inside. he offered nothing on the flank.

 

great result though

Harper 7.5 - Looked solid and did his job well, made some important claims as well.

Raylor 6.5 - Nothing too catchy, but did deliver some mean crosses, if im not wrong he was the assist for Collos goal.

Collocini 6.5 - Took his goal well, did well to also keep it in play, but defensively was his usual self for the second half mostly.

Saylor 7 - Kept Chopra quiet, and had some last ditch tackles, also prevented Chopra from scoring late on.

Simpson 7.5 - Was one of our best players on the pitch today, chased everything.

Enrique 7 - Hit and miss all match, did well going forward.

Nolan 5 - Invisible throughout.

Barton 6 - Looked lost on the left, MUST play in the middle.

Guthrie 6.5 - Not a performance hed want to remember.

Smith 7.5 - Really needs to be careful, his tacking and holding is class in this division, he wouldnt have been sent off if Collo did his job properly.

Ranger 7 - Really good performance, although not meant to be played as a lone striker, he will be a classy CF in the future, needs someone to feed him through balls, massively contributed for our goal.

 

Lovenkrands 5.5 - Same as Nolan, still unfit.

Butt 5 - I dread the thought he'll start next game.

Geremi N/A - Not enough time.

I couldn't give a fuck if decisions went for us because of our 'name' as there was plenty of shite decisions went against us last season that could have perhaps kept us up.

 

I don't think we did get any favours anyway and I think Barton got a yellow purely because of his previous, he got the ball clearly!

Awful performance from us but apart from the last ten minutes when Cardiff really came at us and had a few good penalty shouts we didn't look in danger of losing the lead.

 

Enrique and Simpson both played well, Smith was canny but it became clear after about 30 minutes he was going to get sent off and I was amazed Harper only came out and punched the ball once :)

 

I don't think Ranger had as good of a game as some people want to believe he had. That's not to say he played bad, he did all he could playing up top by himself, but there were a few instances when he lacked a bit of maturity. I still think he'll be a good player in years to come but it's clear he's still growing.

Great shift put in by the players in terms of effort and committment, they weren't given a second to rest on the ball and people were getting stuck in all over the pitch. As we've done before we had a moment of quality to score, (and well done Colo on winning the ball to give out wide then getting back in to score) followed by digging in, stifling the other team and trying to pick them off on the break.

 

Smith had to make that challenge and it was well worth a red as it looked a certain goal, plus he'll only miss 1 game, he was everywhere today, and probably MOTM. Was perhaps lucky to get away with the stray arm in a players face and the two footed lunge second half!

 

Ranger again battled well upfront on his own which is a big ask of a kid and it'll be nice to see him get a game alongside Carroll soon hopefully to see what he can do with a big man upfront helping him.

 

And finally, we were lucky to get away with the blatant pen when Taylor saved with his arm, but who cares we've had countless shite decisions go against us in the past, its nice to get some our way!

I disagree there. Our only problem was that we didn't have anything up front as Ranger could really do with some support. We held possession well and bossed most of the game up until the end and most importantly when it came down to it we ground out the result and it this league that's what counts, three points on the board and now we have to focus on Wednesday.

 

At the end of the day we have one of our harder games out the way and I'm over the moon we got something from it, 6 games, 5 wins, 1 draw and only 1 goal conceded. I have nothing to complain about!

 

Also I have to call Brock up from saying Cardiff were a ''physical'' team. Were they fuck!

Yeah, theres no way that was an awful performance at all, not even close. Cardiff have been tearing people apart at home, and first half we practically rendered them toothless, shutting them down and controlling the game solidly if unspectaurlarly. They came into it later in the half and certainly had the better of the second half, but we scored, kept a clean sheet and have beaten one of the better teams in this division, job done.

Radio saying first time we've had five wins combined with five clean sheets in our history!

 

Great result.

award winning manager Chris Hughton's record breaking team of battlers maintain their unbeaten run to go 2 points clear at the top of the table

 

 

last seasonI never,in a million years, thought I would write the above line.

Only at Newcastle!!!

Good result but switched off after we scored. Away from home and another 3 points so were getting there..Still not as easy as some "people" were making out.

:)

 

I'm assuming he means the team 'switched off'?

 

Poor game from a viewer's perspective, excellent result, and Accadacca is looking more credible by the match. Piss poor league in comparision to the premiership imo.

It's a strange one!

 

Before the season people were saying we would be mid table fodder and it's a very hard league but now we are doing well it's a shit league and we should piss it.

 

These people are mainly mackems like...

an awful performance eh ?

 

a 1-0 win at a supposed main rival without 3 main players - I'll take this every week no problem.
