    waiting for the draw. I think we lack cover at CM.

    Ashley Out!

    The biggest weakness we have is in the DM position, both Anita and Colback aren’t good enough hence sitting deep because they’ll get outbattled. Tiote may never get back to what he once was, we need a beast in there like a Wanayama (obviously not him because he wouldn’t come) the need for a proper ball winner with presence in midfield would compliment Anita.

    Colback though is bench quality at best

    We do lack cover at cm, yet we got rid of abeid!! Not like he was a big earner or we got a lot of money for him.

    if macca had to play goofy in def/mid he must now realise we need strengthening there?

  • 11 Hail Wor Ashley // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:14 PM

    Van Dijk solves the CB and DM issue, he should be priority.

    lee charnley

    it will only be 5 or 6 short highlights i reckon, the goals and thats it.

    Great that Thauvin scored and got three assists, can’t harm his confidence at all.

  • 14 Lee Charnley Bunga Party // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:15 PM

    What is quite worrying is we are only an injury or 2 away from Gouffran and Tiote playing as central midfielders ….

    We need another player or 2 in !!

    Great. Jeffs alter ego.

  • 16 ronaldo aarons // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:16 PM

    As for van dijk, I’ve always said he’s not a good defender. He’s a good footballer but as a central defender he really is not worth getting. He’d be wicked for your 5 a side team though.

    Newcastle number 19 in draw

    Lee Charnley Bunga Party surely with anita colback sissoko gini siem and tiote gouffran will never get near the cm positions

  • 20 SPRINGY // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:21 PM

    maybe instead of chasing a cb and striker.. keep what we have for now and add to cm

    the draw is 10 mins away.

    Draw master is back to his best. Mark Hughes is having pens now.

  • 22 Hail Wor Ashley // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:23 PM

    Carlisle at H or Palace at H are my hopes.

  • 23 ronaldo aarons // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:24 PM

    Atletico Madrid are on the verge of signing a player who I feel would have been perfect for us in dm, matias kranevitter. Very good player for his age but with massive potential. Small but is the closest player to makelele ive seen. He’ll do really well at atletico and I see him as being the successor to gabi.

  • 24 will die for the toon army // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:28 PM

    WBA has a problem scoring goals.

  • 25 loonie-toon // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:51 PM
