Clark And Mmemba In Central Defense – Gouffran Starts

6:46 pm, Wednesday, August 17th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 324 Comments

nufc emblemReading FC

Rafa Benitez has just announced his team for our third league game of the season tonight – at home to Reading.

Ciaran Clark comes into central defense and he partners Chancel Mbemba. with Grant Hanley and captain Jamaal Lascelles on the bench tonight.

There are three changes from the team that started on Saturday against Huddersfield and the captain tonight is local boy Paul Dummett.


Newcastle: (4-2-3-1): Matz Sels; Vurnon Anita, Chancel Mbemba, Ciaran Clark, Paul Dummett (c); Isaac Hayden, Jonjo Shelvey; Matt Ritchie, Ayoze Perez, Yoan Gouffran; Dwight Gayle
Substitutes: Karl Darlow, Daryl Janmaat, Grant Hanley, Jamaal Lascelles, Jack Colback, Rolando Aarons, Adam Armstrong

The holding midfielders are again Isaac Hayden and Jonjo Shelvey and would you believe itย – Yoan Gouffran starts on the wing.

We can only think he’s been impressive in training and of course can track back well – maybe he can get another goal for us tonight.

Matt Ritchie is on the other wing and Ayoze Perez takes up the number 10 position behind striker Dwight Gayle.

Daryl Janmaat is given a rest and utility man Vurnon Anita comes in at right back – where he looked very good at the end of last season.

Maybe right back is Vurnon’s best position these days?

The bench is very strong with no room for Jesus Gamez tonight.

This is what Rafa said yesterday about how Newcastle must improve on the first two games – both defeats:

“We know that we have to keep working hard. We have to have confidence in ourselves, but at the same time, we know that we are strong and we have to show this on the pitch.”

“We have had some chances – not too many – but we have to take our chances. We have made some mistakes – not too many – but we have paid for them, so don’t make these mistakes.”

“We have to improve almost everything, because we could have got results in both games, but we didn’t do enough to get the three points.”

“We know that it’s a question of improving the defense, improving the middle, improving the attack, and if we have players that can make the difference with theย quality.

“Or we need the team working as a team to make a difference, we have to do it and we have to start tomorrow.”

“It wasn’t the best start – it was really bad in terms of results – but still, I think that at the end of the season we will be fine, we will be good, we will be where we want to be.

“It’s a long, long season, and we know that it is just the start. We have to fix things, but I have confidence that we will do well.”

A low 56% of fans think we will win this game tonight.

    3 games, 3 CB pairings. You can’t do that.

    I think Rafa has told the squad that for the first few games everyone gets a start.

  • 10 matt11_25 // Aug 17, 2016 at 6:55 PM

    I think it’s smart to keep using our depth while also showing that failure is unacceptable. Squad depth is an advantage we have over most teams, long season ahead and it will be very useful.

    Interesting quote from Rafa before about changing the style of play from long ball due to no target man.. makes me wonder why that was ever the style of play.. and does he plan on changing back to it when mitro returns??

  • 11 Toonces // Aug 17, 2016 at 6:56 PM

    Best chance for a livestream might be to see if someone in attendance periscopes the game.

    Good team Apart From Dumdum an sels, Would Have Started Darlow and Gamez, Still Dnt Understand Why 1 Lone Striker

    ——————-Sels

    Anita———-Mbemba—-Clarke——–Dumbo

    ——————-Hayden

    Ritche————-Shelvy————–Perez

    Posters will be extremely concerned about what you are up to – must be like getting the black spot from Blind Pew.

    Maybe it will be on kodi? Can anyone check? I’ll search for it to.

  • 17 Wandering Geordie // Aug 17, 2016 at 6:59 PM

    Good call by Rafa to drop Lacaselles- Was starting to believe in his own S Taylor like hype. Goufran in? Well Rafa must have seen something to start him. If we win I will be shocked.

  • 18 Bambams // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:00 PM

    Rafa not frightened to change a team.

    Quite refreshing.

  • 22 msk21dec // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:02 PM

    Lascelles has made costly error 2 games so glad hes dropped rafa showing hed drop any1 good management. Glad janmaat not playing. Think we are missing a focal point striker tbh someone like shearer and demba ba and viduka etc. We shud spend big and go for benteke or bony. If promoted they cud be our main striker so makes sense to spend big now. Can we get jedinak from palace? Adebayor? What bout striker who scored winner in final for portugal

  • 23 AncientC // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:02 PM

    Reading will come out of the blocks fast and try to pressure early on. I think we could see a goal inside the first 15.

  • 24 Jail for Ashley // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:03 PM

    My worry on Lascelles being made captain was that he he couldn’t be dropped if he had the armband. I should have feared not.

    Shelvey cant play 2 man midfield. Should have gone darlow. Anita mbemba clark dummet. Ritchie hayden colback aarons. Ayoze gayle. 442 with colback or hayden licensed to go box to box

  • 28 FollowFollow // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:04 PM

    Glad to see Anita in over Janmaat. He thinks quicker, has more urgency about him. Janmaat slows it all down, saps the energy from the team and crowd.

  • 29 Lee Charnley Bunga Party // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:06 PM

    Gouffran always gives 100% and puts a challenge in so him on the left hand side would be good as he will have license to attack with Dummett behind him

    But I would really like to see him up front because that is his main position !!

  • 30 mindcompressor // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:06 PM

    Any chances fir tv stream?

  • 31 msk21dec // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:07 PM

    Not sure if jedinaks been signed up by any1 thats why i put question mark. Personally id bid big for benteke or bony. Get crouch aswell. And berahino. That way we sorted for championship and premier lge if we get promoted. Id also love giovinco for creativity. Roberto pereyra going to watford is a good player for creativity too.

  • 32 stephen1971 // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:07 PM

    just watch gouffron have a blinder, looks a bit defensive again to me though, i must say i like anita too and i think he,s where he plays best tonight, any streams ?

  • 33 matt11_25 // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:08 PM

    Not all these drops are due to form guys.. ritchie didnt start last game mind

  • 34 kevymartins // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:08 PM

    can’t see there being any linkes on Kodi seeing as the games isn’t on Uk tv nor overseas tv, could be wrong though but it’s highly unlikely.

    Reckon we will pick up the 3 points tonight, Gouffran adds more steel for me. Will help Dummett out a lot aswell.

  • 35 toon kk // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:08 PM

    Rafa genuinely has no idea what our best player’s / team is. Our best player’s from last season have gone. We’re left with a mixture of players Rafa doesn’t know. It will be a matter of who impresses in training. It could take some time for him to discover exactly what our best team is.

  • 36 msk21dec // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:08 PM

    Ah yh jedinaks gone aston villa. Just on ssn

  • 37 bettyswallocks // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:09 PM

    Jail……. That’s the point of having captains who are rotatable.

  • 38 RolandoOverhead // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:09 PM

    It’s a surprise, but then back to back defeats in our first 2 matches was a surprise too.
    Looks like Rafa is possibly basing his teams on performances in training, lets hope that faith is rewarded!

  • 44 Blackley and Brownlie // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:14 PM

    Rafa not impressed with Janmaat? Nice one.

  • 45 davis_toons // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:15 PM

    “captain Jamaal Lascelles on the bench tonight” – this is why he is consider one of the best manager. (with balls)

    Of course, his resume shows and prove it. Rafa all the way.

    ..but good is his selection on defences? the players he selected have got to prove themselves that they can be worthy to be in the team.

    Rafa doing fine tuning..still shifting players and trying out players.

    Captain will still be switch around, till the best man is found.

    Really needs Shelvey to perform and leads the team for the money that he is worth in the middle of the field.

    Hope he can prove something with his 3rd game out.

  • 46 FollowFollow // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:16 PM

    Jedinak superior to all of our DMs (and we have a few).

  • 47 Nufc-83 // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:20 PM

    I have not seen gouffran do anything of note out wide ever. Granted Aarons didn’t play well on sat but at least he has done well from the left in the past.

    Shouldn’t change the result we should still win comfortably but Christ been saying that every game so far,

  • 48 Nufc-83 // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:24 PM

    Kevy how can you be wrong you answered the question already the games not shown live anywhere in the world so how will some on get a link to nothing?

    Geez it’s like banging your head against a brick wall with you lot!!

  • 49 AncientC // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:24 PM

    Thanks Bishopmag @26

  • 50 Macas // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:25 PM

    Nobody has been dropped. Just simple squad rotation from Rafa

  • 51 Nufc-83 // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:25 PM

    Would rather jaanmat gone wide and Richie swapped wings than see gouffran play!!

  • 52 kevymartins // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:25 PM

    Nufc-83 it’s pretty obvious that Paul Dummett gets tore a new one when the likes of Aaron’s is played infront of him, Gouffran tracks back and helps defensively so Dummett won’t get burnt and beat from pace every single time and they can get free crosses in, just attack with Richie and use Gouffran to stop leaking goals. Don’t understand why we don’t just sign a LB already.

  • 53 Jail for Ashley // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:25 PM

    bishopsmag,
    Thank you very much. You have made my night.

  • 54 jimmygscot // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:25 PM

    Gouffo will do a job. He works hard and gets the odd goal. the Championship is his level.
    Just hope the defence can look solid.

  • 55 keeleytoon // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:26 PM

    I’m calling Gouffran to get Motm today haha! Any one else? Would be a laugh to see it happen.

  • 56 Jail for Ashley // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:26 PM

    Who is the captain?

  • 57 geordie157 // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:27 PM

    Have to say I quite like that line up, better balance to the side. Need a performance from shelvey tonight!

    Hope gouffran plays well, I think he’s a decent player at this level.

    Nice to see Rafa has shown players that they can be dropped even if they are the captain.

    No Gamez in the squad, I thought he was considered a bit of a coup when we signed him?

  • 58 kevymartins // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:27 PM

    @NUFC-83 there has been times before when the games isn’t televised anywhere yet there has been linked, I think the linkes where through them recording it for highlights an stuff so there is always a small chance.

  • 59 keeleytoon // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:28 PM

    Dummet is the cpt i think. @ 56

    For right back we should have gone for bruno peres but hes gone roma now. Would love darmian from man utd. Wont schweinsteiger play for us for 1 season lol. Some say daley blind isnt fancied by mourinho. He could be our left bk

    cheers bishopmag!
    well looking at that bench we need a few attackers really poor!
    glad it’s goof on the left actually at least he puts a shift in and we know wat he’s about could be decent in this league tbf and anita isn’t in midfield is a plus

  • 64 beermonkey // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:31 PM

    kodi sportsdevil streamsport.me

    they have a link in there dunno if it works yet

  • 65 Nufc-83 // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:31 PM

    Kevy that’s simply not true as they can’t hack into the highlights ๐Ÿ™‚ only explanation would be someone is showing it and most people such as nufc.com did not find it but that won’t be the case.

    I thought dummett was solid defensively and that was the reason for playing him if he now needs cover then send him the conference now cos he sure can’t attack.

  • 66 colwell // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:32 PM

    Would give Riviere a chance, he’s stronger and quicker then Perez who has been w@nk so far thinks he has 10mins on the ball caught out everyt ime. At least while Mitro is out Riviere gives us a presence up top.

  • 67 bettyswallocks // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:32 PM

  • 81 The overrated Frenchman // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:50 PM

    I’m curious too why Gamez is not getting game time. Seems a more logical choice than Anita at RB, although Anita has done a job there before of course. He is supposed to be a “leader” type and all, and with our captain not playing that would have been helpful in the defence you’d think. It’s not like he’s a dud player Rafa has inherited.

  • 82 jimiley // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:51 PM

    He could drop anybody apart from Ritchie coz they have all been crap. This team is not a patch on 2009 team. The best I am expecting is a play off place. 10 million for Gayle??? Come on man. He looks like Bellamy but thats where the comparison ends. Not in same class. We specialize in lightweight midgets.

  • 83 Our Toon // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:55 PM

    Anita has already done more than janmaat at RB. Gayle was never a red card, blatant handball simple yellow.

    Good start from us, quick and straight out of the blocks

  • 84 santoon // Aug 17, 2016 at 7:56 PM

  • 124 msk21dec // Aug 17, 2016 at 8:13 PM

    All these ppl with their funny comments. This is modern day football. If burnley can get defour etc or birmingham get duggary or bolton get okocha and djorkaeff etc im sure if we pay them enough then most of my signing suggestions can become reality. And we need quality players not potentially good players

  • 125 Bambams // Aug 17, 2016 at 8:14 PM

    Perez needs a goal, i like the lad but we dont get enough goals from him. i think its touch and go for him and i would not be surprised to see Rafa hook him once Mitro is back.

    Potential is there but we cant wait.

    IMO

  • 126 toon kk // Aug 17, 2016 at 8:15 PM

  • 129 Lee Charnley Bunga Party // Aug 17, 2016 at 8:19 PM

    I think actually having some width on the left hand side with Gouffran is working well for us as it means there is more space available to Gayle and Perez

    Also Anita playing right full back just seems to work hes a better all rounder than Janmaat when playing in that position

  • 130 mindshaft // Aug 17, 2016 at 8:19 PM

    We need a 2nd goal before halftime – sounds like we’re all over them and they are there for the taking

    I am willing to pay for a tripod and a big SD card for someone who will go to games and will be willing to turn on periscope to watch the games.

    I would even bay like 5 pounds per game for that if the quality is decent.

    Things we’ve learned today – gorgonzola has been a Mackem troll the whole time. SMB.

    And this msk kid gives examples of top flight teams buying good players as the reason why we should be able to do the same, despite the fact we’re NOT a top flight team. Genius.

    Nah mate.

    I sent them a message before the season started and asked if they would upload Newcastle games this season.
    They basically said no.

    I am guessing that if there will be some serious Cup games or games that are broadcasted by Sky and such, they will maybe upload them, but then I won’t need them as those I can watch in streams online anyway.

    Well, lets hope that in less than a year we won’t have to deal with this anymore.

    2-1 ! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Much needed!

  • 272 Jib // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:38 PM

    According to Andy-mac rafa was in panic mode !

  • 273 Oleg G // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:39 PM

    I hope people are going to be less nurses at least for the next few days.

    And this is still without key players in the squad.

  • 274 Moonraker15 // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:39 PM

    I think we may have another legendary no 9 in the making! Gayle !!!

  • 275 Oleg G // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:39 PM

    Jib // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:38 PM

    What does that mean?
    How did he see that?

  • 276 davetoon // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:40 PM

    Great result.

  • 277 Oleg G // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:40 PM

    Anita and Guffy should be dropped.
    Right?

  • 278 JamesToon // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:41 PM

    fantasric win lads, decent performance as well, they didn’t let their heads drop and we got the job done, Gayle 3 in 3 games now.

  • 279 Yo-yo // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:41 PM

    Well, we wuz a bit lucky tonight.
    They hit the woodwork twice.
    It’s a long season.
    Still time to go down to League 1.
    One swallow doesn’t make a summer.
    Away games are gonna be real hard in such a tough league.
    Need that striker/LB/ Creative AM or we’ll be in trouble.
    ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 280 SPRINGY // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:41 PM

    oleg
    anita should be right back for a while now.

  • 281 ShirebrookToon // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:41 PM

    Shane Duffy sent off haha

  • 282 Oleg G // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:41 PM

    Moonraker15 // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:39 PM

    To early. Way way too early.

    You need at least 1-2 seasons to know something like that.

  • 283 Moonraker15 // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:42 PM

    Tony Gale in the SS studio “it wasn’t really a 4-1” Errmm I think it was Tony!

  • 284 NUFCPaul // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:42 PM

    gorgonzola – don’t forget, it was only Reading. It’s probably best to keep being a miserable moaner. It seems you’ll be whinging when we lose and doing the same when we win because it’s only Championship teams. Looking forward to us climbing the table so you’ll drift away into obscurity out of embarrassment.

  • 285 Rafa Revolution // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:43 PM

    Yo-Yo Buzz kill

    Munster won’t be happy either

  • 287 manxpie // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:43 PM

    haha duffy sent off
    luck of the irish they say, he must have smashed a few mirrors

  • 288 SPRINGY // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:43 PM

    shirebrook
    he’s probably done it not to conceed a hatrick of own goals!lol

  • 289 Toon Tang // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:43 PM

    Thats more like it lads. That wasn’t so hard was it?

    Oh yeahโ€ฆ FCUK YOU WINBAR

  • 290 JamesToon // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:43 PM

    I’d say first half we were the better team until the final 5 mins, then second half we were in and out really, but we got the goals which is what matters, Gayle/hayden/ritchie’s goals will only give them more confidence, all three contenders for motm for me.

  • 291 Oleg G // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:44 PM

    SPRINGY // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:41 PM

    What about Gamez? Why not to try him?

  • 292 Yo-yo // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:44 PM

    Rafa Rev

    There’ll be plenty of downers on later…. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 293 The overrated Frenchman // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:45 PM

    Oleg – can you explain “less nurses” to me? Not a term I’m familiar with.

  • 294 SPRINGY // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:46 PM

    oleg
    i believe he had a bit of mare in pre-season in one or two games,for one reason or another….fitness maybe…so it seems he’s not ready to play yet

  • 295 ShirebrookToon // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:46 PM

    Springy

    He got sent off for descent. He was flagged offside but decided to have a crack at goal anyway lol

  • 296 WWSBRD // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:47 PM

    Also nice to see Goofy getting a good reception, I hope get returns to what he was when we first signed him

  • 297 SPRINGY // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:47 PM

    haha….bet he wishes he could have a 3 game ban to restart his season!lol

  • 298 Moonraker15 // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:48 PM

    Oleg
    I know but this lad is a bit special and a lot were saying he is the real deal. I can’t wait to see him alongside Mitro or even the other striker Rafa’s getting in !

  • 299 Oleg G // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:48 PM

    The overrated Frenchman // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:45 PM

    HAHAHA

    less nervous

    Sorry.

  • 300 ShirebrookToon // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:48 PM

    Anita should be nailed on for RB now

  • 301 toon kk // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:49 PM

    Great result, hopefully our season starts now. A few quality signings are a must.

  • 302 WWSBRD // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:50 PM

    Shire
    Why?

  • 303 The overrated Frenchman // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:50 PM

    Shirebrook – I think a sending off for “descent” usually means someone’s taken a dive…

  • 304 SPRINGY // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:50 PM

    wwsbrd
    mick lowes and ando were slagging him off all game and sounded like they had to eat a bit humble pie when he went off as he got a good reception by the fans…..nowt flash by all means but grafted and gave the side a little bit more balance.

  • 305 Oleg G // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:51 PM

    Moonraker15 // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:48 PM

    Sure.

    I’ll take him as no. 9 if he will come good for us.

    I am just saying that words like legendary etc are really premature ๐Ÿ™‚

    It is only our first win and his first few goals.

    And I also want to see him playing together with Mitro.

  • 306 Jail for Ashley // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:51 PM

    Eh,
    Our first + GD for about five years ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  • 307 toon kk // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:51 PM

    Up to 17th, all we need to do is keep going up!!

  • 308 manxpie // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:51 PM

    as i said earlier it sounds like shelvey had a good game so hopefully people who went can let us know?
    we need a LW tho and another striker as much as i want armstrong to do well we shouldn’t be relying on him
    plus jimmy is obviously the jinx his was the last comment i seen before i came on dissing our new number 9 lol

  • 309 WWSBRD // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:52 PM

    SPRINGY
    Thats exactly what he used to do and he was good at it until everything went wrong for him and he ended up CDM

    Still a decent player in there if Rafa can find it…far better than having Anita on the wing

  • 310 bishopmag // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:54 PM

    @ 300 ShirebrookToon

    He really should. FAR better than janmaat

  • 311 SPRINGY // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:55 PM

    wwsbrd
    he’ll probs start again sat….he may get a few games …it also give aarons a kick up the hoop to try and shift him….all good then.

  • 312 ShirebrookToon // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:56 PM

    TOF

    diving is simulation. Dissent is for arguing with the ref. My bad!

  • 313 The overrated Frenchman // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:57 PM

    On Gouffran: he’s been one of the few overrated Frenchmen who has at least shown a bit of ticker (if not much else) when he plays. Probably why he got a decent reception from the fans who recognize that.

  • 314 BandB // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:57 PM

    This isn’t going to be a huge squad. Or is it, at present, a massively talented one.
    Rafa doesn’t seem to mind. Eighteen fit and motivated ones provide more competition for places than I1 so-called purples and a back-up bunch of sick-notes and no-hopers.
    At long last the players might begin to doubt if they’ll be allowed to make a career of telling the Chronicle how much they are hurting about the latest defeat and how hard they will be working in training come Tuesday to put things right.
    A bit of competition around the place. It will make all the difference.

    At last

  • 315 WWSBRD // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:57 PM

    SPRINGY
    Am not against that tbh, would still like a starting LW coming in

  • 316 Rotonda heights // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:58 PM

    The overrated Frenchman // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:50 PM

    Shirebrook โ€“ I think a sending off for โ€œdescentโ€ usually means someoneโ€™s taken a diveโ€ฆ
    – – – – – – – – – –

    Very good… lol , wonder if it went over his head. Dissent.

  • 317 ShirebrookToon // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:59 PM

    WW

    Because he yet again, had a good game at RB

  • 318 mindshaft // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:59 PM

    Nicky Parker has streamed the last couple of games live from the ground on periscope.tv
    decent stream – I listened to radio while watching although radio was a few seconds ahead

  • 319 Rotonda heights // Aug 17, 2016 at 9:59 PM

    No it didn’t !!

  • 320 manxpie // Aug 17, 2016 at 10:00 PM

    goof was the best of the 5 when he came and as i said earlier he will be good in this league as he seems to know how english footy is, not just trying here and there but at the very least putting a shift in which the others never did

  • 321 WWSBRD // Aug 17, 2016 at 10:01 PM

    Shire
    Ive not seen it so I dont know but I know hes not a very good footballer so Id still rather Janmatt plays there

  • 322 SPRINGY // Aug 17, 2016 at 10:02 PM

    few people slagging off the centrebacks….yes not a great start by most..mbemba apart, but hanley it was his first game with very little pre-season,clark… first game and lascelles has probably let the captaincy effect his game….if they are still dodgy 5-6 games in then fair enough have a pop but we need to apply a bit of patience with some players.

  • 323 Greebol1892 // Aug 17, 2016 at 10:02 PM

    This is really tiresome…. for all the Gouffran haters… the lad is a striker not a MF, CDM, LW, etc, etc. He has proven he can score goals in his proper position. The fact is he has been consistently played out of position whilst under shite management. Yet another manager who wishes to play him as a hardworking utility man. I hope he leaves us because the 1st choice for that role is Aarons. Bring back De Jong – a leader.

  • 324 Jail for Ashley // Aug 17, 2016 at 10:03 PM

    Don’t know how the Sky commentator can say he doesn’t think that they (us)^can handle the expectations of the crowd after three games when we don’t even know ow who ‘they’ are yet. The Team is not the finished article yet and they may well grow in to it.
