Poll – Can Newcastle Get A Result At Brighton?

It’s a really important game at Brighton tomorrow night and we cannot say Newcastle are in good form, having drawn two of their last three games and conceding a poor four goals in the process.

But if we can get a result at Brighton – a win or a draw – things will look better, especially if we can get the win and do the double over the well-drilled Seagulls.

Chris Hughton – Brighton’s impressive manager

That’s what we are hoping for and we are better away from home this season – for some reason – so that could help.

    Like I said earlier, we seem to play better against better teams, a point would be good against Hoots, but 3 would be better.

    Got no chance – not win another game if we put in a display like we did for the first 60 minutes on Saturday gone.

    Absolute Garbage playing at home 1 shot if you call it that on target in the first 58 minutes before we scored another OG. even the second one looked a own goal from where I was sitting.
    Only one player preformed in that time ATSU

    After 60 minutes if we had our shooting boots on we could easily win any game

    A Jekyl and Hyde display – mind you there have been a few of them this season

    @2, the Villa game wasn’t a classic either, another game which could have gone the same way as Saturday, and yet we still picked up the points. We seem to be riding our luck a lot these days, and generally if you rely on Lady Luck, you end up disappointed. I think tomorrow night we will see a very different approach to the game.

    Can’t see Rafa risking Gayle v Brighton. Big Murph up front, and we’ll stand a chance of getting something out of this game.

    Not over confident in winning against Brighton, our last 4 goals have all been scrappy ones, don’t think we have anyone with the shooting power of gayle, Ritchie may step up the mark but can’t see Mitro or Perez stepping up, I’m really disappointed with the progress these latter two have performed this season and have no confidence they will improve.
    I can’t understand what’s happened to Murphy, he was scoring goals for fun at Ipswich, what is it about him that Rafa doesn’t like. It’s a strange one.

    Don’t think so much riding our luck, more like 3 calamitous errors from Darlow in 3 different games and having a striker in Mitro who can’t hit the proverbial barn door.

    last game murphy played he was totally anonymous and ”scoring goals for fun” is a bit generous, something like 60 in 200 games for Ipswich.

    @10, with Mitro it’s his lack of work for the ball, if the ball doesn’t land at his feet, he will not go after it. Arguably he did do this against Villa, however, he was very rarely in an advanced goalscoring position because of this, therefore unable to do his primary task as a player. This is the thing that winds me up about Mitro, he isn’t a bad player, however, he is something of a liability with the fouls, and he doesn’t act like a team player a lot of the time.

    We were poor on Saturday. We’ve got to shake out of this slumber we’re in. When was our last decent performance?
    I know that results are what matters but we need to show our dominance. Teams fancy their chances against us, Bristol City were after us from the off while we were pedestrian.
    Brighton tend to be a counter attacking team even at home but I expect them to be in our faces tomorrow night. They win they are up and they will know this. We need a top performance.

    Hughton must be living this run. His players’ll be brimming with confidence and there’ll be no real pressure on them. We, however’ll be as nervous as hell and Rafa’ll be feeling the heat of Tuesday’s six-pointer.

    Brighton will have to drop some real clangers to lose this one and as time goes by, they’ll go from strength to strength. I just hope Rafa can gee the lads on to a confidence-boosting win.

    You know anything about him ?
    Is he any better than the standard champo ref ?
    Just hope he’s not another Steve Martin

    Anything 4 point or above will do me. Tough games but we are unbeaten in 9 and still have a solid gap to 3rd

    I do think Rafa had a good point last week when he said all of the games were important, but he was less worried about these 3 games than he was about all of the games in April.

    Madley is also a Huddersfield fan.

    I don’t think refs go out to affect a game to favour the team in which they support. However, if something extremely questionable happens, the FA have left themselves open for criticism.

    No wonder Bristol were after us Colback takes the kick off passes the ball twenty thirty yards back then we piss about for the next 5 minutes with three back passes to Darlow.

    I counted at least twelve back passes first half to Darlow – become a bit of a obsession – sad git – but it does my head in and when we do pass back and Darlow hoofs it upfield because our lazy gets cannot be bothered to move into space for the return ball or a pass out to build from the back.

    And if we pass it back to Darlow as many times in a game then it is inevitable that he is going to cock one up.

    Up front mentioned last week if Mitro and Perez are not firing then put Ritchie up front – bit like Gayle and has the goalscoring knack

    Cant see us getting anything from Brighton, and if we play Mitro we will be down to 10 men before half time as i think Dunk and Murphy will be targeting him and wind him up.
    We could easily bottle this run in and i dont care how highly rated Benitez is, you have to question his tactics at home. One shot in the first half against a bristol side who are in freefall is very worrying.
    Im not at all confident that he has it in him to get us over the line.
    If he does fail he will just walk away with his millions still in tact and we will just slip into oblivion.

    not a huge fan of Madeley reffin toon games. He’s pretty consistent in punishing us with penalties and red cards if history is to go by

    If we match Brighton and huddersfield for work rate and desire I’m confident we will get results from both games.

    Think Brighton will be day for Lascelles to step up. Seen them a few times, really direct, they target the fullbacks aerially with a lot of diagonal long balls! Physical team too.
    If gayle is fit I fancy us to beat anyone. Mitros had chances in all the games we’ve failed to win that could have turned draws into wins, Gayle being much more prolific and accurate gives us more potency.
    We seem better away than at home and we seem better against better teams

    The way we play is like listening to Donald Trump with a very limited vocabulary,lots of repetition, going back over old ground, defensive and aggressive. I prefer to hear or watch a stimulating contest that illuminates, bedazzles and causes the opponent problems.
