Defender Is Our Man Of The Match

After 700 votes cast by Sunday morning, Fab Coloccini was leading our poll for Man of the Match – but now Daryl Janmaat, who laid on that great cross for Papiss Cisse to score,  is our Man of the Match for the vital win against Aston Villa on Saturday with 36% of the vote.

    He has been unusually quiet after a good showing from coloccini at the weekend. I wonder if he’s still shell shocked.

    Funny how this thread automatically makes us think of toonbrother 🙂

    My guess is he’s been busy voting for Janmaat since Sunday morning.

    Yes the voting polls on here are always a bit weird.

    Jack the ripper would probably get 25 if he was on there.

    I was one of them. although i was being facetious.

    Obertan could have had an alright day if he actually wanted to take the shots on.

    He could easily have dragged the number of shots on target up for us but he is terrified of taking a shot.

    Apart from that. Absolutely nothing about this game interested me. I couldve been asleep at half time but we got the valuable points.

    The extent to which Carver keeps talking about lobbing crosses into the box worries me. Proves he is a dinosaur and I want him to have nowt to do with us next season.

    Would happily fire every englishman involved with the playing side. Englishmen know nothing about football.

    r u mad

    look at his game and tell me what he does that equates to justifying a place in the team ?

    his sprinting ability gets him into great places, his ability and decision making get him into trouble.

    id play Raylor on the right side every day ov the week ahead of him as he thinks like a footballer, and not a French coward

    cisse/colo/jan all deserced motm esp the first 2 as its prob the best i’ve ever seen them play tbh !

    abied/colback/sissoko are the only cm’s we need to be choosing from if there not available we need to change formation to suit better players imo.

    cisse is an automatic pick for me and so is cabella when available.

    20 years ago before I left “Blighty” for the “Rock” me and a mate attended a meeting at the Manors where a couple of hundred supporters met to discuss the declining atmosphere since the introduction of all seater stadiums. With the help of “the Mag” there had been a concerted effort to bring in singing sections to improve the match day atmosphere. At the time I was a season ticket holder and was traveling regularly to the away games where, as is the case now, the atmosphere was magnificent. The problem, as with most clubs was the home games. Now 20 years on, we still have not addressed the problem and it hurts me when we are out sung on our own patch. Crystal Palace have shown what can be created with a few hundred hardened supporters yet our own reputation for being “the best” is slowly being diluted.
    Can the powers to be at our club not see the significant advantage of having a vociferous crowd backing them at every home game? I’m 55 now but you try shutting me up at a game and I’ll have your throat!! I’m back on Wednesday and I’m in the Gallowgate corner where I hope there’s a few willing to let rip. In the meantime instead of kicking off about all and sundry on here why don’t you put a bit more effort into putting pressure on the regime to “bring back the noise?”
    What about a Facebook page? “Bring back the noise – NUFC”. Let’s give it a go.
