    When I say Shola was Lazy I mean you could see he wasnt giving it 100% tonight.

    There’s no doubting his hold up play. But He was often fed balls that he didnt seem to want to get on the end of.

    He needs to try and shoot more.

    I dont think Cisse was ineffective. it was nice to see him display some hold up play and even take some players on. I just think that Shola would’ve been better suited to the wing and Cisse couldve done more damage in the middle.

    how long have you been watching newcastle? shola’s game hasn’t evolved in the 50 or so years he’s been here. he is what he is and what he is (i’ve had years to come to terms too) is not that bad.

    would i prefer a better 3rd striker? of course. but most teams don’t have a 3rd striker near as reliable or apt to change a game as he is

    LGFUAD – you are losing me now mate – Shola more effective on the wing? Someone help me out here what am I missing with this idea and dont say ‘clue’ ‘brains’ or ‘football knowledge’ as I already am aware of that 🙂

    LGFUAD21 @ # 4

    Shola is a big guy and he takes a lot of abuse from opposition defenders he also has to measure his effort out over the time he is going to be on the park.

    What I mean by that is, if AP says to him I want 30-40 mins of high intensity out of you then Shola knows he is there to soften up the opposition and then be subbed so he will put himself about and abuse the opposition.

    If there is no specific request from AP then Shola will assume he is on for the duration and has to meter out his effort to suit. As for stretching for balls that are close but not that close, lots of players have been subbed out the game over stretching for a ball and tearing something, you go for what you know you can get to and leave the rest to be recovered when you’re in a better position to do so.

    I used to play basketball and that game has a saying and it is “reward the big man when he runs” as they are well aware of what it takes to push a big body around. I am an old man now and well over six foot and just shy of seventeen stone, I was never as fast as the players I played against but I was often still on the court when they were being subbed off for a rest.

    As I posted earlier I would love to see you and the likes of brutoool take ten mins of the physical abuse Shloa takes and still be able to walk let alone run.

    great performance!
    i think this season we haven’t played that well but the massive plus n i mean massive, we’ve played alot of player’s n some out of position n still got results!
    to me this says where building a great squad n really moving forward!
    pappis with a great finish but school boy errors on the offside
    obertan i said ages ago he’d be better on the left and he certainly proved it 2nite
    shola defo 1 of the best hold up players (i’m gonna say it!) in the league his touch is amazin n his presence is also second 2 none.
    wher is catchy 2nite just wanting to no where his ober bashing is!!!!!?

    On the subject of laziness, I was starting to get fed up with Cisse’s positional recklessness 2nd half, Absolutely no eye on their line and getting caught standing not running onside. A bit disappointing to see that. He would have had two good runs on goal at least but for that.

    I think the way Ferguson picks a pass is encouraging for his presence in the team, but it will be as a winger, not fullback. He’s not filling out, and his positional play is a bit casual, but going forward, hes a different player

    agree completely re fergie

    tsunki

    agree on cisse. he did impress me out wide though. not sure if he could consistently do a job out there for us but he’s not really ‘doing a job’ anywhere else as of late.

    Manxpie @ # 16 and Ameobi before that

    It was a pleasure to watch Shola tonight in my mind there are very few players in the prem that have the strength of Shola he has one and two players pulling at him another trying to get at the ball and he still manages to hold them off and lay the ball off.

    He may not be the most nimble or the most agile he also has a laconic style about his movement which to some (the blind and the bigoted) only see as lazy. In the second half after more than sixty6 mins of battle, to watch him run past defenders and they just resort to pulling him down to stop him I can only watch in admiration.

    To the doubters I can only think you are average or below average height and size as anyone who would be considered big would appreciate just how skilled the big lad really is.

    Manxman , you’re right the defence were decent tonight without being too pushed and Simmo didn’t have a winger to give him a good outlet. Why we were playing Anita on the wing second half, he was lost

    soz matty but i disagree willo’s been decent all year at worst!, let’s face it our first choice CB’s haven’t been available often enough for along time n willo’s been part of the very succesfull team that we’ve produced!?
    i’m pretty sick of people continuisly makin scapegoats
    i.e simpson,ober,willo,amieobi,perch,vuckic, the list goes on, on here.
    n good poin’t harrogate but don’t let that get infront of a good simpson bashing 🙂
    @cupid that was my best joy in the last part of the game n his strength n touch setting up anita for his chance(he should’ve scored 2 be fair) was imo world class

    We’ll get another 3 seasons out of Shola at that level or better. He really has stuck at it and learned, dare I say mastered, his craft. Truly great, his maturity as a player is one of the real highlights of our resurrection over the last few years.

    Manxpie @ # 29

    I have utmost respect for the big man, if I were to have a complaint then it has to be he is not greedy enough for an out and out striker.

    He is in many ways like Emil he will graft his heart out to get a win for the team he beats the opposition defences to pulp and then lays it on a platter for the others to put away.

    When the shit is flying around Shola can normally be found in the middle of it and not shirking any of it.

    I respect big lad.

    mattyNUFC @ # 31

    I think the problems arise when people say things like “willo is poor in my opinion” which yes you are entitled your opinion but it is such a poor destructive negative comment.

    I think he is a perfectly adequate cb, yes he has his limitations but he perfectly adequate. My validation for such an opinion is he was a very prominent member of a team that attained 5th last season so was not poor.

    Is he as good as Ferdinand no I would not claim that but did he cost almost £30 mil NO is he costing around £150,000 a week in wages NO so how do you come up with poor?

    I just find it sad when posters come out with this players shit that players shit with no other reasons why they come to that conclusion.

    I just think it shows them to be right dumb f**ks who really can’t form a rational opinion by themselves.

    Williamson cost what? A mil he has made a huge step up in class of play he is at and appears to be making steady progress, I also think he is aware that he will be a squad player when an upgrade is found and brought into the club, on the other hand he may step up his game a little more and be challenger for the spot, I hope it is the latter.

    So Williamson is poor compared to what???
