Siem de Jong Freely Admits The Obvious


Even though Siem de Jong missed a fantastic opportunity yesterday in the home game against Villa, he still got a warm round of applause after he was replaced by Ayoze Perez soon after the miss.

Siem is a very experienced and very honest player and this is how he reacted on Twitter after the game and why the Geordie fans like him so much.

    Siem…you should have scored I think we can all agree on that, but last night’s poor setup and performance is not going to be measured by your mistake alone.

    Catchy…Colback probably was better at Sunderland. For me he’s a bit pointless actually as he has a good engine, but he adds nothing defensively or offensively.

    He’s good for a booking though!

    It seems last night the term ‘negative running’ was an education in it self for some…

    …but it sums up Colback pretty much!

    Toonbotherer if you got rid of him before yesterday was would have lost.

    I think everyone especially Ed needs to get over this game, it was ruined by the weather full stop. We could easily have lost in such conditions it was disgraceful to play in.

    I watched palace yesterday, they were awful, a pen and a wonder strike from distance. Football teams cannot survive plying like this, his team have to be close to the top for getting pens this season, and if you take the game against us out of the equation they have the worst goals from open play.
    That says it all for me. He was blessed to have 2 decent CB and 2 good wingers before he went to the club, I’m pretty sure bigger clubs will be after them players, then you will see the real P45

    toonbrother – the Earth going round the Sun is a fact. Your comment is pure speculation and cannot be a “fact” until the season has ended.
    I thought yesterday was disappointing, but not disastrous. We should have taken our chances and I thought the pitch nullified Sissoko and Gini when they tried to burst away.

    Despite the weather we created 4 good chances to win comfortably but because Norwich and Bournemouth won it’s moan, moan, moan – bah bloody humbug!

    I have only seen one replay of his chance while at the ground.
    The flight of the ball seemed to be partly blocked by a defender. That made it more difficult.
    These things happen.
    7 points from 2 home and 1 away games.
    It’s kept us in it.
    With the window opening the owner now has the opportunity to sort this out.
    If he does not then he can’t complain if we go down.

    Morning all

    Disappointed with result, was a horrible game of football that wouldn’t have looked out of place on a Sunday morning.

    Siem missed his chance and I’m gutted, but gini missed a sitter and ayo missed a bit of a sitter too, so we could all be saying great 3 points. I’m not losing any sleep on it, this is the premier league and our last two results prior to this game are a prime example of anybody can beat anybody.

    Positives for me yesterday, crowd superb, mitrovic is a man mountain and the biggest one for me thauvin. When he came on I thought he was brilliant and a constant menace and his delivery bar one was superb

    I haven’t seen anyone give Brad Guzan the credit he deserves for a great game in really difficult conditionns for a goalie – in particular a point blank header from Mitro which he tipped over despite the rain blowing almost horizontally in his eyes.
    I thought we made the bettter fist of playing in those conditions and created far more chances but given the monsoon there was always a chance VIlla would nick something.
    One scrappy away point isn’t going to save their bacon.
    As for the de Jong miss – meh !!!
    There isn’t a top class player who hasn’t missed a sitter – a what the f— ! moment.

    A tendency to blame one individual for a team’s ills in the manner of Toonbrother and Jesper is evidence of very little actual experience in or with adult team sports.
    In the days when I used to have a season ticket there used to be many fans in the ground did the same – very irritating – I can imagine Blackley and Brownlie being the same type of “fan”.

    @Jib: Guzan played brilliantly, it has to be said. When Mitro’s first header came in at him (which I think was the first time he was tested) he was straight up for it. Can’t argue with it, like.

    re: Sting missing the header, while it was bad, it was no worse than Mitro’s two miskicks the past two games, or Gini with a poor shot right into Guzan’s hands, or even Perez trying to do too much and curling the ball over the bar. I’m glad he’s back on the pitch and I reckon Sting will come good for us, but he’s lacking confidence and sharpness. That’ll come with time.

    I think so , he thinks quicker than most.
    Has a great eye for a pass or a run.
    His fitness isn’t quite there yet.

    You may disagree , I’m just grateful you didn’t accuse me of monkey talk.

    The match report for the Aston Villa/Man City game which ended in a draw is almost identical reading to ours, with Sterling missing a close range header and city missing 3 or 4 good chances.

    It can happen to anyone, especially in those weather conditions.

    My mistake read it wrong, he does seem to make decisions quick but he is very slow in movement, can win a header though and has a good level of control, don’t think he plays well with Mitrovic though

    Fair doos on the monkey thing I must have missed what that’s based on like but I can’t be in on everything

    Catchy,
    I think you are starting to look very bitter and foolish continually looking back you are even watching his team play football, what is your obsession, surely watching the mackems getting humped would have been better than watching Palace vs Stoke

    Jib – I think Guzan haven’t done anything special apart from good long kicking of the ball from the wet condition when they made back passing. Credit should go to Elliot again for saving 2 or 3
    good chances.If sdj,Perez & Wijnaldum had took their chances,he’d have been monkeyed 🙂

    I hate the idea of people trying to justify p45 as a good manager just because they are in a good position on the table.
    These people are doing exactly the same thing as they always did, assume just because of a position they play good football. It’s simply not true.
    And Jesus man, pot calling kettle a bit, your existence on this blog is purely based on Ashley. Which IMO is just sad , I’m here for football reasons not business reasons, each clubs fans could give you reasons why there owners are not good for there club.

    One of the positive things about having a head coach with McClaren’s reputation is other clubs are more assured about lending NUFC their young stars.
    Evidence of this is the rumoured loan to us from Arsenal of Joel Campbell , he’ll probably join us after we play theGunners at the Emirates on 2nd January.

    with a bit of analytical thinking future events can be predicted with a high degree of certainty.
    Here are a few facts for you to consider

    1. Colocinni’s weaknesses will be too much of a burden for his teammates to bear for an entire season. fact

    2. With colocinni in the first team, our defence does not work unless we park the bus.fact

    3. Parking the bus entails 11 players including our most potent attacking threats – Gini, Perez, Mitro & Sissoko – having to play deep. fact

    4. Hence Colocini’s presence in the team damages our attack as well as our defence fact

    5. With colo in the team we will go on another losing streak like we did 2nd half of last season,fact

    6. Unlike last season we do not have a cushion of points to absorb the losses. Unless we get rid of Colocinni our fate is sealed. Fact

    Thanks

    For SDJ to be effective we need a left winger to provide width and a forward with pace and movement ahead of him so ideally in our current squad we would need to play Thauvin and Perez with De Jong for it to work !

    That way we can spread the play to open up teams lost count of the amount of times we had Sissoko and Janmaat attacking against 4 villa players where if we had a left winger on the pitch we could have switched it and been through on goal !!

    Thauvin looked really good when he came on some of his crosses were excellent it also got Wijnaldum more involved in the game because he is out of the loop on the left hand side!

    Feel that was 2 points dropped by poor team selection and poor finishing
