    Win the next 4 and get everyone back on board! Then we go to Palace with another win making us leapfrog them, ahhhh that’d be sweet.

    These are signs of players with great spirit and attitude. Whilst the majority had had poor form most season these two hav been excellent throughout.

    The only negative thing i’ll see from these two is transfer gossip.

    like i have said for a long time now, the team is not as bad as many have been saying, today one of our worst players has been one of our better players so far this season, Janmaat, he has been our best attacking player, today not so good, but im ok with that.

    next week is going to be some game, if i was Shteve i would make them sit and watch the last 4 derby games, then show them games of nufc winnging them, so they go in to the match on a high.

    Norwich had some good players today, redman olsen and brady

    I remember Shearer in his post match interview after we took apart Wednesday.

    “It doesn’t matter if we win by 1 goal or 8 – what matters is that we win.”

    One win does not a season make, Steve. Now we need consistency.

    Defence needs sorting asap.

    Think most of the CM today didnt feel like tracking back.
    Our entire back line needs replacement only possible exception janmaat.

    But him being suspect going defensive.

    Need 2 very pace CB’s.

    I’ll make the confirmation now that as I haven’t heard anything back from catchy prior to this match that £100 bet i offered is not going ahead.

    You writing Mbemba off then?

    4/25 does not give a team great, wij and perez get and injury or worse still get sold in january and then what?

  • 9 toonking // Oct 18, 2015 at 8:01 PM

    i’m hoping and praying this form will continue but my confidience isn’t quite there just yet. All it will take is a defeat next week and then comes the extreme negativity again including me.

    i have not heard anything about a bet

  • 13 gorgonzola ( former Pecorino former to gorgonzola) // Oct 18, 2015 at 8:05 PM


    Honestly… I am not certain he is a full product. He would be bencher non starter. Can we for once invest into quality CBs…

    just once….

    We were bloody hopeless defensively in the first half and only mildly better in the second. Steve knew it hence the frown at the end. Attacking wise sissoko was very good but he is going to cost us many points by strolling around when he doesn’t have the ball. He was exactly the same against Leicester at theirs last season.

  • 15 toonking // Oct 18, 2015 at 8:07 PM

    I certainly agree totally with what you say about jam, earlier i made a team up showing who can keep the position and who should see a replacement, I had put up a new right back in my team and what i did with jam is move him down towards wingers because he does have much more to him like that of a winger than a RB.
    It’s happened with a RB in the past at newcastle when malcolm macdonald himself was moved from being a full back into a striker.

    Who? He hasn’t done a huge amount wrong for a kid moving to the Premier league. I’d prefer a more talkative centre half, one who can organise the back line better alongside him, but think it is a bit odd to be saying he isn’t up to it at this stage.

  • 17 Fatman_joe // Oct 18, 2015 at 8:09 PM

    Having said that, I really enjoyed the second half today and there were many positives. The derby will still be hard and we have to work harder off the ball to stop balls coming into the box.

    what you have against Mbemba? He is our best defender this season…He just need better partner there and what we need most is strong DM as we havent got any…sorry we have Tiote, but it would be better to sell him and bring one better…He is slow, gives away stupid fouls and lost ball a lot of times…we need CB starter a beast and DM starter a beast and we will be much much better side…
