    For the tedious HBA lovers ( give it a rest please )

    Extract from L’Equipe match report after PSG’s extremely hard fought win over Bastia on Friday

    “Just like last week, Hatem Ben Arfa was virtually non-existent. He had only 33 touches of the ball, the fewest of any PSG outfield player who started the match.”

    Didn’t get to watch here in The States was not available anywhere so can really give my review but looking at that highlight of first goal against us just exactly what kind of defense was that by Shelvey?

    I am not panicking just yet but at same time do think if we still have Tiote and Sissoko at our disposal why not use them and it hurts me to say that especially about the ladder.

    Still feel Tiote is best CM we got and should be kept on his day not many like him…Can anyone who watched game review for me how Hayden has done? Do we keep him in or should he be in danger of being dropped for next game?

    What is your point about HBA saying after 1 game for him it’s not working out for him in PSG? Do you remember what he did at NICE last season? Are you also starting to doubt Rafa? By the way Cabaye was not in starting XI for Palace does that mean you wouldn’t have him in an instant back on our side?

    Brklyn, jib is forgetting to tell you that Hatem scored a lovely goal in his first game against Lyon I think it was. Ball came across into the box, took a touch to stop it then knocked it into the top left corner.

    Oh, and he plays for one of the best clubs in the world at the moment, PSG.

    Long live Hatem.

    My point
    It was the first 2 games HBA was crap for PSG.
    Nobody said it wasn’t working for him he probably just needs time at a new club – you know just like a lot of our signings.

    Thing is, where does rafa go from here? Lets say he gets the left winger we need and a powerful striker. Will he train the team to attack more?? The assumption has to be yes, but logic doesnt say it will happen. His negative tactics and tinkering with winning teams used to absolutely infuriate liverpool fans at times. On a sunny day in august why did we not attack huddersfield more. How many more signings does he need, to tear into huddersfield town? Is his philosophy based on defence and containment first. He has been a great fan communicator but is his philosophy demonstrated in the negative cautiousness we saw last season in the crunch games? Hope not and stilk believe in him but i think most fans are starting to ask questions. The next game gives us a good chance to restart.

    The two goals we conceded were pathetic.
    I hope this is not just some self indulgent ego trip for Rafa Benitez.

    Rafa played 4/3/3 with Hayden in the defensive midfield role.
    It clearly did not work.
    Thing is I can’t think of two players he can put together in a midfield 2.
    Shelvey he clearly does not trust in there.

    There is a massive black cloud now over St James park what needs to be addressed, Never mind in 5 games time mate.
    Again I ask why keep playing 2 holding midfielders when we are supposed to be the top team in the Championship.
    How can we let the likes of Huddersfield dominate at will to the point where they look the home team.
    Why are the same flaws in the team still hurting us game in game out.

    It’s the same old same old and j just don’t see on yesterday’s performance how it will be turned round for the next match

    I really dont like shelvey in midfield. Twice he could have made a tackle maybe but was half arsed if you see the clips on their 1st goal and 1st chance. Shelvey should let the defender jockey and himself sprint for a tackle not just run next to the player and do nothing. Shelvey out. Get a mid of anita, tiote and diame with anita and diame licenced to support attack. Give ritchie free licence behind mitro and gayle

    We needed another winger and someone to create. I looked on here after the game and saw people bemused with Aarons coming off. It was correct I thought. He was getting pushed off the ball and tackled very easily – looking way out of his depth. On one attack he looked lost and quite petrified in possession.

    We were looking short on pace.

    Anita, we know, is not a winger. The wrong type of balls were coming in for Gayle. Had Mitro been in there and Ritchie on I think the score line would have been different.

    I like Ritchie a lot already. Very good player. Shame he missed his header.

    It was a poor game, but with the amount of new players who have come in, it’d be natural that they may take a bit of time to gel. Expecting it to click straight away isn’t necessarily going to happen. It’s just how it is. Rafa is no mug, as his CV shows. He’ll hopefully correct what is needed.

    It’s a long term view of this development, not a panic over the first two games with all that have happened.

    The flags looked great. I sit in the Gallowgate Strawberry corner as well.

    Moanster,

    You’re nauseatingly and really so very boringly now giving Rafa endless grief, yet you’ll happily condone someone like Pardew who only won 2 out of 21 matches in the second half of last season playing garbage football.

    It’s like you think you know it all or at least more than one of football’s most decorated managers.

    Granted it’s a disappointing start and we lack creativity. Is rafa trying to address that? I would imagine so with many links to knockaert, forestieri and Insigne.

    Rafa has been left a pile of s—e by Carr, no 2 ways about it, but your non-stop criticism of the guy virtually from the day he got here is doing my heed in..

    Laurent Robert 32 and Brklyn

    Please ignore Jib he rabbles on and insults people on this blog, he gets a kick out of it, suppose all frustrated teens do.

    Any of those old players of ours would be in this team today no doubt. Thats whats scary, definitely not progression.

    By the looks of things on current form we would be mid table possibly lower. Wining the league is out of the question now, Fulham has that honour atmo.

    With these current set of players you can forget about any forward movement. Sunderland loses 2:1 away to a club that can buy Newcastle 20 times over, we lose to Huddersfield ….

    Thanks guys.

    HBA may not do it every game but you must surely see how fans just want someone to do bit of magic and create something out of the blue. We have no one at the moment who could get remotely anywhere near providing anything like that.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAH sorry….if that lad signs, the moon would blow up. He probably had a look at our first two games and would sign a contract to net get near Newcastle.

    What stumps me is…how can it be a poor game at home to such crap opposition? How is that even possible? Are these players caving in from the task ahead.

    You are playing at home!!!!!!!! in the Championship vs Huddersfield!!!!! I am lost for any further comments.

    Priority surely now has to be a fresh CM, a LW, a LB and another striker who isn’t blown away.

    Hibbit
    It is year after year we buy lightweight players – the list is endless – still doing it

    AND STILL GETTING BULLIED OUT OF MOST GAMES.

    Take yesterday: 4 out of the eleven
    Hayden – lightweight
    Anita – Little and lightweight
    Aarons – Small lightweight
    Gayle – Small lightweight

    subs;
    Ritchie – small lightweight BUT GOT ATTITUDE
    Armstrong – small lightweight
    Perez – Small lightweight

    You cannot expect to win all the games with a lightweight starting eleven.

    As someone wrote last night night a team of Hobbits – I Bilbo Gayle

    When will we learn.

    You don’t have to be the best player in the World but if you are big and strong have a little bit of skill decent in the air and get stuck in that’s what we need in this game/league.

    And if you buy lightweight small players they need attitude like RITCHIE and he showed it yesterday.

    Wednesday – we have got to swallow or pride hatred for Sissoko and play him and even Goufran or Riviere up front with Gayle or Perez to give a ‘bit’ of presence.

    Charlie

    That was me that called them hobbits, that’s always been our biggest problem, as i said last other championship teams have got height at the back, in the middle and up front and I’m not talking one in each of those 3 positions I’m tallking a few, alright we have got height at the back but in midfield, only Diame and Hayden are over 6ft tall and up front we have only got Mitrovic, no wonder we are struggling.

    Only 2 of our attacking options have been a regular starter over the last few years. Ritchie and mitrovic.

    Gayle couldnt get games for palace who have had rubbish strikers.
    perez bit part and cant play in our formation

    is it time to bring out gouffran and riviere? Cant believe in a season when most teams will defend against us rafa forgot to buy anyone who can attack.

    Had a go at the team yesterday but there’s no way i want Rafa out, just thinking that you would have to be insane, he will have to change the formation, it’s not working, think we were lucky with some of our results in the friendlies.

    Given our options rafa must start with ritchie and gayle on the wings, make do with diame the DM as a number 10 and put untested Armstrong upfront. Aarons and perez can be used as impact players.

    we need a proper no10, diame cant play there.

    Msk21 @15
    So right about Shelvey – he seems disinterested and I don’t think even showed any enthusiasm or appealed when we won the penalty. Is he peeved because he’s not the Captain or the centre of attention ? Or is it because his occasional wonder pass doesn’t result in games been win ?
    Despite loosing weight his mobility seems restricted.
    The players are too tense – they need to find a sense of fun and play with more freedom and purpose , too much coaching dulls the winning spirit. Armchair manager – for sure, but it’s there for all to see.

    After next weekend we have got Mitrovic back but it would help if Benitez signed a new forward asap, get your skates on Rafa.

    Try and get Moses and Assombalonga, get some power and pace in the final third. Add Forresteri or play sissoko in the 10

    Darlow
    Janmaat, Mbemba, Lascelles, Galloway
    Diame, Hayden
    Ritchie, Forresteri/Sissoko, Moses
    Assombalonga

    If they were tense before yesterday how will they cope with Burton away ?
    Scares me to think about it and I don’t get paid £50,000 a week for the privilege of playing for NUFC .
    This is the cumulation of modern football being reduced to a board game and years of the likes of Pardew and McClown doing it by the book rather than inspired leadership.
    Too many times yesterday there were opportunities to pass inside to a player running into space and forward yet the pass went backwards and the momentum was lost. On other occasions there were players in space who didn’t receive the ball because heads were down and the pass went elsewhere.
    Take them to play on the sand at Tynemouth and mark out a pitch twice the size of SJP. They’ll soon see the game differently , get fitter and can have an ice cream afterwards. Happy days.
