    Isn’t it wierd, how a nil-nil draw feels like we have taken a massive scalp? A few weeks in football can be a very long time. Proud of the boys tonight, on a night where I wouldn’t have been too ashamed or upset if we had took a hiding. Well done chaps.

    There’s always negative people on here after the game.
    For us to got 1600 miles away against a strong anzhi team, on an arti-f**king-ficial pitch, and get a draw, in my terms is a bloody good job, nd I for one, enjoyed watching the match, although there was much happening in he game

    Would be more than happy to see Obertan and Marv swapped for one or two of our summer targets,Obertan has been tried and failed and tbh what has Marveaux done apart from the odd very good fifteen minutes which are few and far between,on a positive note though a good solid defensive display only hampered by a lack of strikers at the club.

    I don’t know where people get the illusion that Marv is good ‘on his day.’ When has there been ‘his day?’

    I mean at least Marv has showed he can play at this standard. He’s never going to break into the starting line up but I don’t care what you say he’s definitely a decent squad player

    A draw is a good result. Would’ve preferred a 1-1 draw so we could’ve come home with a goal lead. As long as Anzhi don’t score at St James we will be ok.

    If Villa wants Oberton then they can have him for 3m, Gouffran is wayyyy better than him and cost us a quarter of what we paid for Oberton. I bet Carr can buy 2 quality unknown forwards for that money lol

    Happy with that. They were disappointing as the home team. I love Ben Arfa but how can people vote for his performance over perch who was my mom?

    NUFC_LEAZES END @3 – Well said, for me it was an excellent result & performance considering we had to leave Colo, Cisse & Jonas at home. Yes we didn’t get an away goal but at least our task at St James’s is clear we have to beat them which I think we can.

    Great result from the boys but gees it was hard to watch.

    Not used to us being so negative. Think if we had of stepped it up a gear they were there for the taking.

    Would of given santon a shot at left wing after 30mins and taken obertan off. He was dreadfull.

    Again, great result, but thought we gave them too much respect

    hotdog@10 – Perchy by a country mile. Even managed to keep a cool head when getting some fairly rough treatment by Anzhi players. Who would have thought him capable after his ‘Card Fest’ of a season when we first bought him?

    Speaking of the man of the match stats, I am a bit baffled by vote going in the direction of Yanga-Mbwia. Not saying he did anything wrong (He had a good game), just in terms of the centre back pairing, I felt Taylor did far more in terms of key tackles, and controlling the back, his off the ball contribution was also better, yet he has only 2 votes (a couple of mins ago anyway). Very strange.

    Best summed up as a good job done. Having to travel and play in Moscow on a cold winters night is not to be envied.
    for once I will say that Percys’ tactics were just about spot on -although he needs to accept now that he has given Obertan many chances and really the guy is hopeless -needs to be replaced in the summer. I think Sholas’ days are also numbered as well -he cannot be kept on the payroll because of his history as the Mackem Slayer -really he does not contribute much in a game and usually fouls opposition players.
    Hopefully Carr will have already have his dossiers finished for who to approach in the summer.

    G. Very true but I was in the minority who backed him as a decent player. He attitude is always spot on, he reads the game well, is quicker than most people think and is very versatile. I’m not saying he is starting 11 player but as squad players go he is invaluable.

    @16. I would rather see him play the holding midfield role than Tiote at the minute. Tiote just hasn’t really been right this season, although his work rate always impresses. I thought he had a good point in his interview the other day though where he suggested his reputation gets him cards. That’s the curse of midfield enforcers though. I remember watching Rob Lee get Roy Keane sent off many years ago deliberately by getting fouled on the wing, getting Keano a yellow, then getting Jon Bez to take a short free kick back to him, in the same position very close to Keane, who did exactly the same again, then walk straight off the pitch with his back to the ref who he knew (as we all did) that the red was being lifted. Happy days.

    G – don’t agree with that one bud. I think the vote is right with perch and mbwia as the top two.

    My vote goes to hadaira

    Didn’t put a foot wrong

    Went forward at the right times, rarely gave the ball away, think we might have a wee gem here

    No offence hotdog, lets just agree to disagree. That interception on Eto’o near the end summed it up for me. Key challenges, and better control. Like I say though, Yanga-Mbwia (Still can’t type that properly) did nothing wrong in my view, and was still a key performer.

    @20, nope, deffo Taylor. Watch the game again mate. Taylor was consistent. Can I just reiterate before the arguments / slaggings really get going though, I’m not suggesting Taylor was MOM (I voted Perchy too), I’m just saying Taylor as much a good player as the current leader.

    I really don’t see what ameboi is offering us apart from fouls as was posted earlier. Would have loved to have seen Campbell for the last 10 mins

    @ G

    I don’t know how you can say Taylor was MOM, the guy was only on about 15 minutes. My men of the match in order would be

    1. Perch
    2. M’biwa
    3. Haidara

    @24 – I’m clearly not coming accross here too well (It’s been a long time since I started drinking at 4). A question of proportion to the contribution. He came on, did a fine job, and did as much, if not more than his compatriot. All I was trying to suggest was the confusion as to why he only had 2 votes, even though he kept us in the game.

    Defense was strong, Elliot made one great save, Mid was average and HBA screwed up our only real chance. Solid performance and result w/ no injuries so I’m happy.

    Elliot 7
    Simpson 7
    Mbiwa 8
    Perch 8
    Haidara 7
    Cabaye 7
    Anita 6
    Marveaux 6
    Sissoko 6
    Obertan 5
    Hatem 5
    Shola 4
    Tiote NA

    For me MOM was haidara. He was perfect today in terms of both committing to attack and being solid in defence.

    Great result over there, i enjoyed it in a funny way, gives us a big chance next week, and i have to give motm to James Perch, a couple of bobby moore esq tackles, i am not his biggest fan but a decent squad member that can’t be denied, thought all the team worked hard even obertan who is so wasteful though, marv n anita did ok for me considering the amount of playing time they have had in the last 6 weeks, not easy to get ant fluency when you have been frozen out, benny did well, could gave knicked it for us, shola is shola it bouced of everywhere but his foot ha ha, elliot again showed he has to be our number two, Haidara is looking really good and santon needs to look over his shoulder which may be a good thing, mbiwa looks cool n class n assured.

    It was really good though to see ben arfa back, such an option, oh and cabaye covered sime ground tonight as well, top kid.

    Deyan. Yeah I’d agree with that maybe sissoko a 7 as he influenced the second half more.

    Spurs play some good stuff mind. I think they will get a top four spot

    Obertans first touch was a flick past the fullback and a decent attempt to outrun him , and I hoped he was out to make a name , but sadly for him and us it descended into ineffective flicks which went to the opponents or passes straight back to the man who had passed it to him . Whatever skill he has he seems unable to turn it into consistent performances. If you have recorded the match then watch it again and keep a tally of good vs bad touches and I know which will come out on top. A great performance for the team as a whole , but its time to review Obertans contribution and take the right decision on his future.

    M’biwa was a very good defender strong against bigger, taller player and have many other good attributes.

    Good Buy, he can only be better if well train, once settle into the team we can really counter anyone. Just look at how far he can bring the ball forward.

    Stylor let Eto pass him and Eto got a shoot in. Its was so dangerous. He got to get closer to him.

    -Stylor is most effective when blocking powerful shoot. He is like a wall there.

    Stylor used to read the game quite well until Colo took that away from him. (e.g. cut out passes)

    @35, not a management criticism, but I did notice a couple of days stubble, which suggested he fell into the Moscow hotel trap. All the travel guides suggest to take your own plugs (Sink plugs, not power type) as they’re never in the bathrooms, and harder to find than hens teeth.
