    draw might not be until after WBA match has finished and if that goes to pens could be a while yet.

  • 2 Lee Charnley Bunga Party // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:23 PM

    @corky

    In terms of defensive midfielders we only have Colback and Anita at the moment!! Tiote is shite , Gouffran no way , Sissoko is shite in the middle and Gini and De Jong are attacking midfielders

    So not blessed with options !

  • 3 SPRINGY // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:23 PM

    not hard this one really?lol

  • 4 SPRINGY // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:25 PM

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

    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.

    Palace at H please, Jeff!

  • 7 Tsunki // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:28 PM

    Ashley Out!
    Spineless fairweather Ashley Apologists Out!
    Opportunist Fat Man Friends Out!
    …you get the idea with that ha ha

  • 8 Hail Wor Ashley // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:28 PM

  • 9 corkypants // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:28 PM

    lee charnley bunga party

    surely steve mc knows how to play more than one formation!

    if not there is always bigi and keman

  • 10 ronaldo aarons // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:28 PM

    Lol one joker has voted for colback!

  • 11 Tsunki // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:29 PM

    Tiote or Goofy?. Hmmm tough one.

  • 12 Lee Charnley Bunga Party // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:31 PM

    @Corky

    I hope so !!

    Anyone see young Jak Alnwick is having a blinder against West Brom??

  • 13 TheToonKing // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:31 PM

    Jack Anwick “heroics” keeping Port Vale in it against West Brom, 1 min till penalties.

  • 14 Our Toon // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:32 PM

    Colback is not a defensive midfielder. Neither is Anita, they a deep lying ball players who can’t defend or tackle or track the players they mark.

  • 15 ronaldo aarons // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:33 PM

    You’ll be waiting a long time for the draw lol, it’s on tomorrow night.

  • 16 Take a Chancel on me // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:34 PM

    Our Toon

    You know less than nothing, cock botherer

  • 18 JamesToon // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:35 PM

    Janmaats goal absolute class play, Thauvin with eyes in the back of his head set Janmaat with a lovely pass for the overlap

  • 19 JamesToon // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:35 PM

    What time is the draw?

  • 20 ronaldo aarons // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:36 PM

  • 24 SPRINGY // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:38 PM

    hope for luck should i say!

  • 25 croftus5678 // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:39 PM

    so maybe tiote has lost it now ?

    he was pretty bad all season before last and then injured most of last season (although he played for his country) and now it seems he’s still doing his silly fouls and getting out played by lesser players !

    maybe time to cash in for what little we will get ? lets face it we have tons of cover for dm now with anita coming into form colback/sissoko/bigi all being able to do a very good job there also.

  • 26 Take a Chancel on me // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:39 PM

  • 46 SPRINGY // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:49 PM

    tiote poor to start gave away the penalty but seemed to get better as game went on still picked up the usual yellow card….but not anywhere

  • 47 SPRINGY // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:50 PM

    tiote poor to start gave away the penalty but seemed to get better as game went on still picked up the usual yellow card….but not anywhere near back to decent

  • 48 SPRINGY // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:51 PM

    sorry mis-read lees comment…..oooops

  • 49 Scouse_geordie // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:52 PM

    Anyone else think Haidara would make a better left winger than a lb? He always looks shakey defending but I have always rated him going forward. One of the few players we have who can beat a player and has a decent delivery

  • 50 SPRINGY // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:53 PM

    lee
    tiote might get another game but expect goofy to be gone the time that came comes round

  • 51 SPRINGY // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:55 PM

    scouse
    he probs would make a decent winger if he crosses more consistently….his game tho…from 1st match to now seems to be improving week on week

  • 52 SPRINGY // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:56 PM

    i expect thauvin to be playing left wing tbh

  • 53 TomTheToon // Aug 25, 2015 at 10:58 PM

    What did people think of Toney during his 20 mins showing?

  • 54 JamesToon // Aug 25, 2015 at 11:00 PM

    @MickaelDuprez: @NUFC_Online French sport media “Jacquie et Michel” announces Jordan Ferri is closed to sign for Newcastle United for 7 millions £. Congrats

    Set for medical apparently

  • 55 sweendog // Aug 25, 2015 at 11:06 PM

    hope so, good player for 7 Mill

  • 56 SPRINGY // Aug 25, 2015 at 11:08 PM

    macca must be reading these comments we only said half hr ago we could do with another midfielder!!!lol

  • 57 Sav // Aug 26, 2015 at 12:06 AM
