Newcastle United vs Brighton & Hove Albion - 30/12/2017 - 3pm

Recommended Posts

I really thought we’d have a go at these today the same way we did against West Ham but it’s been a very poor and cagey performance.

Perez on for Ritchie who did not look happy to be coming off.

He can’t have too many complaints. He’s been absolutely dire

Brighton are awful mind, anything less than three points is points dropped here, but I suppose it highlights how deep in the shit we are that we’re not dominating the game against such limited opponents .

Agree, so many wasted free kicks.

 

Absolutely dreadful from Merino there.

Shelvey on for Merino, who should have just been given a penalty, Bruno got no where near the ball then

Capped off by an abominable dive. If Shelvey weren't such a slapheed moron he'd be playing every game over that waste of space Merino. 

 

That wasn't a dive, he stumbled down after turning Bruno who bundled into him, no contact with the ball at all.

Looking for it 100%. Not every contact is a foul. You watched it same as me, he went down in stages, fishing for a penalty. That's a dive. 

 

I did, I saw someone who was crawling after the ball as he'd managed to turn two defenders, and could've had a shot if he was staying up, get fallen into by the carthorse he'd just beaten.

Both strikers look knackered too, but no options off the bench to replace them. The problems with this side are very obvious, the only question is whether Rafa will be allowed to remedy them.

Agree to disagree then.
