    Are you in a huff? We have not managed to beat man u at their ground for 40 years.

    As long as we win on Saturday, all will be forgotten

    Did you not want Fegi to get at their full back a bit more after he produced that sublime delivery?

    He was not help much by Marv to get down that wing.

    Fergy gives us natural balance being left sides on the left. Especially as both Santon, Marv and Jonas like to cut in.

    Our best team:

    ……………………….Krul………………………….

    Anita…..Saylor………Collo………Santon

    ……………Tiote………..Bigi/Perch…………

    ……HBA…………Cabaye…………….Fergy

    …………………..Ba/Cisse……………………….

    Tavernier and Perch and Cisse for scoring and Colo for being there, and Bigi and … – easier to list those who disappoint, but not really disappointed to be out of this one.

    Gosling is getting better, slowly but surely he will make it. Maybe best to send him out on loan so another team can wait for that breakthrough to happen. He showed enough tonight to suggest he could make it. But he needs to work on his long range passing or try not to do it!

    I’d probably have Sammy ahead of Fergie, personally.

    @bollance: I did and that’s the only criticism I have of him. Given he’s a small lad it was nice to see him fend off challenges as best as he could, contesting for the ball etc. Marveaux started well (his set pieces were very nice) but like you say, his team play was found wanting.

    Enjoyed the game, we played well and should of won . My only concern was we only have three finishers in our club- ba cisse and benny.
    If we are to seriously challenge on more than one front either give young Campbell more chances or we will have to spend in jan, it’s quite simple. Over to you Ashley , are we going to challenge or are you just happy to advertise your sports shop?

    Tavernier was the best, Perch also played well tonight, Elliot is definitely a reliable reserve keeper, Bigi & Fergie both looked good when they came on, Cissé did well with service he got, Shola was alright and Obertan was inconsistent as per usual. Everyone else was average but Gosling & Willo were both crap.

    Fergie has not played much footie at all iwith his injuries, when he gets up to speed he will start taking players on and getting quality crosses in, i was annoyed our players were still giving it to obertan all the time, AP should have told them to get fergie on the ball more.

    For me Marv has gone off the boil. He looks disinterested and drifts in and out of games. He plays it very safe. I can not remember him bursting down the wing or even dribbling down the wing.

    At least Obertan was making the runs although to limited effect, sadly.

    To be fair, they started doubig up on Fergie at the end. Unfortunately Marveaux wasn’t awake enough to take advantage of the space.

    Fergie seems to have a couple of games like this every year though, then – as you say – injuries hit.

    perch did well at CB. did nothing when he was on the wing. he was at fault of Cleverly’s goal. backed off waaaay too much

    Tavernier hands down showed the most promise and was the pick of the lot for me.

    good to see cisse get confidence back

    again, Fergie is no LB.

    Gosling, his usual self. some good, some bad, mostly non-existent.

    Vuckic was doing well in the second half. would have seen how he coped with cisse instead of shola.

    thought shola’s hold-up play was exquisite but his lack of speed really is appalling. Marveaux played him in 3 times in the first half and he couldn’t even get to the ball.

    thought marvs was ok.

    williamson was shocking (this isn’t beating a dead horse either. he was awful TODAY). welbeck tore him a new a**hole two or three times tonight.

    bigi, solid. tiote his usual marauding, half-the-time-misplacing-passes-self but broke up play well in the first half.

    gabby – eh

    shola is mine
    tav was second
    gosling was my only downer
    elliot made good saves could not really prevent either goal
    perch did better today compared to how he has done at RB recently
    colo not much positive or negative but he has just returned
    willo was poor with finishes but made some good defensive tackles
    tavernier was the best of the wide med until ferguson came on
    obatan again his final touches let him down i think he should be an impact sub more this season
    gosling poor with his passes and wasted some good chances
    tiote was very careful with his tackling unlike he usually is
    marvo lack of passes going a step too far thinking he is like HBA but h did do some good set pieces
    vuckic played poor he is not a striker
    shola did well controling the ball but no one was about to finish them.

    Marveaux just seems like a complete luxury player – and a team like ours can’t afford to carry one of those unless they’re a lot better than Marv currently is.

    It does make me laugh that only a couple of weeks ago, everyone was berating Pardew for not picking Marveaux.

    Maybe the coaching staff do know more than the fans? Woah!

    I’ve just voted for Obertan -only to check if there were idiots out there who voted for him -there was only one other -two including my vote. I suspect the other voter was AP.
    Whilst the positives were Tavernier, Bigi, and Mr T -oops Shola and Fergie the rest did not cover themselves in any glory. I was checking out Obertans positional play when we were not in possession -empty spaces -as far as I am concerned he needs to be sold off in January.

    Gosling appears to be premiership standard but not Newcastle standard, and if Vuckic is going to be a star it’s going to be on the continent, from what I’ve seen. Marv is strangely subdued and Obertan started great and just fell away when we needed him.

    Just as a balance to a more positive earlier post.

    Nufc

    He is 23. At this speed of improvement you might be right. Paper talk suggests Villa are interested but i am sure you will agree i am not sure what they have seen in him!

    He had been playing in the u21 team so he must have something going for him and Pards has been persisting with him in the ‘cup team’.

    My theory is that he is young and English so he will have a decent transfer value if he can turn the corner.

    On the performance tonight i suggest he could be in the prem at 26 but not for us.

    btw it was not me who voted gosling motm

    We didn’t play to bad. On a positive side, Cisse is off the mark and was unlucky not to get a second. On a negative side, Shola, Gosling and Obertan. Just my opinion.

    I think fergie is a brilliant player, probably our best on the LW. He rarely puts a foot wrong and generally has an end product- something we sorely lack from the wings.

    Agreed, bollance. Ober had a decent game today , if his final product was a bit better he’d have easily been MotM – he didn’t stop running!

    Tavernier looked classy – just pipped Shola for me. Glad Cisse is off the mark – watch them fly in now!
    On the down side – Marv was disappointing and what exactly is the point of Dan Gosling? No pace, little control – one good chance in the first half put into row Z. I don’t think he’s terribl;e – just very mediocre and he has done nothing for me to get in the squad, let alone the team, team ahead of Bigi and others. Sorry – but I just can’t see the supposed talent.

    Still waiting patiently for Vuckic to show what he can do. Thing is, can he do it at this level?

    Some good looking ties. When you see the quality in the round you think that if we are drawn away we would have stuggled against most of those teams
