What has happened to Santon? We has been wank for weeks now. Sissoko was pretty poor today too.

 

I think in the first half (spare for the time where he very cheaply gave away possession and only Krul spared his blushes) he was quitre solid in defense and had a lot of work to do covering plenty of runs. Perhaps that's why in the second half whenever he had the ball he was slow and awkward, and when defending he was not particularly convincing.

Adding to that - With Debuchy missing next game through suspension I'd like to see Santon moved onto the right and either Haidara on the left, or M'Biwa moved there to facilitate Coloccini's return to the side.

I counted 8 miss placed passes and 2 blocks all game. I don't remember him actually dispossessing anyone. Not to mention his god awful positioning. Gouffran saved Santon with a tremendous performance offensively and defensively.

Superb first half. Rubbish second. Well not defensively, but we've got to learn to keep the ball in pressure situations.

Loved our pressing on the ball for the goal, almost Dortmund-esque.

What a wonderful little buy Gouffran has proved to be, fantastic all round player :) And the effect Debuchy is having on our defence cannot be underestimated. Wasnt too long ago you could see the 'Simpson is a better defender than Debuchy' comments here :lol:

6 points against Chelsea and Spurs. Didnt see it coming after the mackem game! Lets hope we can maintain the intensity in the upcoming fixtures! Delighted about today :nufc::banana:

You were counting misplaced passes? :lol:

 

Sounds like you were desperately trying to build a case against your least favourite player.

Yanga-Mbiwa and Williamson looked excellent as a partnership again today.

 

 

Yup, the best thing Newcastle has ever done for Williamson is give him a week of sunday dinners. Upper body is a lot bigger now and doesn't look anywhere near as lanky piss streak-ish as he used to. More importantly though, is that he uses his strength. I've slated him many a times on here but fair play like, he's been playing well recently.
