Alexander Isak

"He's a canny kid, ah lap him up really and he always sticks up for the toon on sky but he's playing with fire here, like. If ah say he's going to play then you don't poke the tiger with a stick by saying ahm talking shite. There's a couple of lanes in the toon and Downie needs to get into his fucking sharpish if he knows what's good for him."

any word on Elliot Anderson? i'd love to see him given a start if ASM is only fit enough for the bench 

Late call apparently

Didn't say, so far. Sounds like Wilson will be in the squad - he's trained for 10 days uninterrupted. 

 

Hope reckoned Anderson's injury was a minor one when he was missing v Bournemouth so hopefully he'll be in the squad.

He was eventually asked whether he's in Howe's thoughts to start games and he said yes. Didn't get asked if he's in the squad but didn't volunteer that he was injured.

I feel like I'm alone in not being that bothered about the start. We're playing ok, only lost to Liverpool, creating a decent number of chances, defending all right and when the big guns come back, we'll be better.

we've put in some v good performances so far, particularly against the bigger teams who try to play on the front foot. our lack of depth was exposed when key players were injured and we were asked to break down bournemouth's a deep lying defence. we don't yet have the quality to brerak down the well drilled "low block" - at least, not when missing some of our better attacking players. 

 

shame decisions and results haven't gone our way. feels like we should have at least 3-5 more points than we do, but it's also clear we're a work in progress and this season will be a transitional one unless we go nuts in the january window. an 8-12th finish is looking more likely than top 6 at this stage. nothing wrong with the former btw. it won't happen overnight

I think this part is really important. ASM starts against Liverpool, Palace and Bournemouth, I think we get between 5 and 7 pts, which would have us 4th. 

 

I'm fully expecting us to go on a run of form where we string together a few wins and some good performances. Isak will be important when he settles a bit, but that task has been made more difficult by us missing key players in his early games. Him and ASM should cause defenders no end of bother and even if neither of them score, they'll create spaces and opportunities for others to get in on the act.
