Let’s Not Kid Ourselves – It’s A Colossal Test At Huddersfield


An advantage Newcastle had on Tuesday night at Brighton was that we had played very poorly against Bristol City in the first half and dug a hole for ourselves which we were not able to get out of.

The lads fought back well in the second half to get a point and a 2-2 draw and probably should have won – but how many times have we said that this season?

That was 2 points lost and therefore most pundits expected Brighton to win the game on Tuesday night, after the Seagulls had been in such good form of late.

But now Newcastle are coming off a fabulous win at the Amex Stadium and therefore we may be in some danger if the lads don’t play this game like it’s the most important game this season – because it is.

David Wagner – has revitalized the Terriers in 16 months

We can have no complacency against a side who were much better than Brighton at the beginning of February and easily win that home game 3-1.

It’s when we are least expecting a win that Newcastle usually produce one and when we are least expecting a defeat that we seem to suffer a shocking loss.

That’s the way its been this season, but the encouraging thing for Saturday is that we tend to play well and are always up for the fight away from home.

Why that’s not always the case at home we have no idea, but it’s something that needs to be fixed sooner rather than later.

If our lads can go into this game thinking that a win will give us promotion (even though of course it will not) then we have a chance of pulling off a second successive massive win.

That has to be what each and every Newcastle player wants to do on Saturday in the late game – win the thing.

We know that’s what Rafa will be preaching in his press conference tomorrow, but every player must heed the warning that Huddersfield can be a fabulous team when playing at the John Smith’s Stadium.

They have won 12 of their 16 home games and lost only two and they have a win against Newcastle already this season at St. James’ Park in our second league game.

This is Huddersfield’s biggest game in years as David Wagner has completely revitalized the club – and their players will be all keyed up and ready to go.

Our lads need to be ready to play at their very best from the very first kick-off.

If we can do that we could get a good result and even a win.

How Will Newcastle Fare At Huddersfield?

    I can’t believe how many reckon we’re gonna win. Not that it’s not possible, it’s just the way some fans seem to be practically bipolar. “We couldn’t even beat Bristol City – we’re hopeless. Going to lose next 3 games badly.” “Great win against Brighton – we’re going to hammer Huddersfield, Reading etc.” I’m not optimistic about the Huddersfield game and I’d be extremely happy if we could get a point against them But if wee lose we will not suddenly be the worst ever team.

    You mat be conflating the blog as a whole with specific individual predictions. We all could see that we have not been playing our best, but the optimist on the blog, myself included, predicted a min of 5 points from the three games, based on our great away record and that we play the better teams better. This next game was always the bigger one, but now with the win against Brighton, a draw would be acceptable. I’m pushing the win button though. Maybe it is a bit of optimism affecting my vote, but we really have not lost any of these important games and I will ride the streak, no matter how it was obtained.

    Wagner trying to scare us with a big crowd……errr, i think hes barking up the wrong tree, every team we have played away from home have had their bigges crowd of the season and are all hurling abuse and singing their hearts out, this as well as our fans giving as good as they get will be a great incentive for our players to go and perform

    C’mon Ed, be realistic.

    Our away record’s far better than home and whilst Huddersfield’s been playing well, I fancy we’ll get on point at least. Three wouldn’t surprise many.

    And Reading, as above.

    Six points from those two and we’re on course for the Prem.

    What a load?!! We are going in to an important game but isn’t every game important?, tell me how many teams would be top of the league without the services of there top goal scorer for as long as we’ve been without Gayle?, also our season is not about Saturday as we have hard games against reading,Fulham & Leeds coming up.
    We can’t ask very much more from the players ? What I will say is if Brighton,Huddersfield & reading are difficult games what about the premiership harder games will come every week not just 1 week in march.

    it about the fact that this came could be a six point swing for clearance to automatic promotion. That is why it is more important. True, there will be another “most important game left”, but possibly not if we win this one.

    I do wonder what the average lead over third was during that period, but it doesn’t really matter. Don’t want to sound greedy, but really hope we clinch top two before the las few games so I could watch with only the joy of a win and not the added anxiety of what a loss could mean.

    @clinath: I’d hardly call it a collapse, it was a three horse race. They had to beat Boro, and hope Burnley lost or drew. As it turns out, Boro and Burnley won, pushing Brighton down into the playoffs.

    Must have been a bloody awful end for the Brighton fans, like.

    A classic from you: “If he left tomorrow I’d be gutted, but if a centre half falls over his laces in the last minute and Gayle scores, Ed calls it a tactical masterclass”

    I’m with you. Some of the comments are bordering on sycophancy. Rafa is sublime. Rafa nearly always gets it right.

    Rafa doesn’t think he’s perfect. Always ready to say he gets things wrong. So why aren’t the fans allowed to criticise? Why is it moaning? It’s like calling people concerned about immigration racists. Designed to shut down debate. I can only think it’s because they love Rafa so much. They don’t want him offended and taje ut personally. They’re scared he might leave if we don’t show him the love. Perleeeeeze.

    You keep on giving your balanced criticisms. There’s room on here for everyone.

    Blackas,
    Is critisicing everything that doesn’t go perfectly really a balanced criticism. Is critising Perez coming on at 89 minutes not only imbalanced but totally wrong as well?

    It isn’t about criticising within the bounds of degrees of near perfection. In some games things are far from perfect.

    There’s many reasons why fans during a match would criticise Perez coming on at 89 minutes. For example, I would not have waited anywhere near as long to make the subs. It gives very little time to make a difference. I’m not a fan of Perez either; if there was a better alternative, I’d have gone for it.

    In this case, Rafa got lucky. Perhaps the next time, he won’t. Irrespective, that’s just my opinion. Rafa has his and I respect it 100%. So I can understand why certain people respect Rafa’s opinion 100%. But I don’t see why it follows that they should seek to want to discredit a critic and close down the opinions of “Mr Any Old Blogger”.

    Because we got the result doesn’t mean I think Rafa got it right. Not even with the benefit of hindsight. As I’ve stated, just because the pilot lands the plane perfectly does not mean he was right to ignore the correct safety protocol.

    We end up with the rule of the blog being “Rafa is right. He’s a world class manager. We’re not worthy. You should not criticise any of Rafa’s decisions, in victory or defeat. All hail Rafa. Amen.”

    Criticising Rafa and the side when things don’t go entirely as anticipated or hoped often comes across as nitpicking or anxiety, considering what he’s managed to achieve with a club that was in such apparent disarray and that we have basically been in the automatic promotion places all season. It’s a touchy subject, but should we fail to go up, the chirping will become a chorus, and the worm will turn. I agree we are on track, but we are not sweeping all before us, as we would seem capable. The criticism is justified, but the audience at large doesn’t want to hear it, and if we go up, they’ll of course have wasted less time openly worrying over what will have turned out to be very little. However, promotion is by no means guaranteed given the threat of Brighton and Huddersfield, so surely we all privately have some concerns.

    Very balanced criticism there, Jimmy

    I feel some people are overly sensitive and protective of Rafa. He’s gaining messiah status. Criticism is becoming blasphemy.

    You ask, “Is critisicing everything that doesn’t go perfectly really a balanced criticism.”

    If Rafa is a perfectionist, he will leave no stone unturned, no “i” undotted, no “t” uncrossed. He will nitpick his own performance.

    Ed might as well shut the blog and open an online shrine if fans aren’t allowed to comment on games and performances and to criticise managers decisions.

    Another problem with criticism is of course that it’s very often misguided and uninformed even with the best of intentions. It’s difficult to clearly understand what Rafa’s doing and why. For example, I have wondered all season why we haven’t gone with Mitro or Murphy up top and Gayle among the three along the line behind, and Diame deeper, which would seem a better use of the players in the squad. But now it occurs to me that playing Gayle or Gouffran, or Perez up top, with Diame behind will run the opposition around and very often have games won by the 70th minute, and if not then you can throw on Mitro, Murphy or Perez on against tired legs to grab the equaliser or winner. So now I’m rethinking things and seeing more merit in what is clearly a very considered tactical approach and one with a big nod to the percentages of gaining overall and ultimate success over the entire season. Of course, I’m just as likely to have another re think as not. Still, it’s fun to speculate, even if most of it is likely to be wide of the actual mark.

    Who says we don’t score enough? I’m interested to hear the reasons why someone is saying that. Whatever the reasons, I’m sure Rafa’s not going to be upset by one person’s opinion that we don’t score enough. I can’t see such sentiment gaining much traction or developing into a mass movement. But who knows? I’m ready to listen to all opinion.

    Sorry but this game means nothing to me, I know sounds a little crazy. The game to me that means the most is the one we have to win or draw to get automatic promotion. That’s the game, lets look at Huddersfield. They just lost 5 – 1 against Man City, I watched the game and they worked hard, lets not think they will not do the same against us even with a few days rest. If we are trying to be that team that jumps back up then yes we need at least a draw, a win is a bonus and trust me its a bonus. We cannot afford the loss, that’s the most important thing with this game, no loss. Well, I have not checked to see if its on the box but those going to the away match, thanks for being great supporters of the club, shout loud and give them hell.

    Blackas,
    We don’t attack teams enough apparently, scoring way more goals than anyone else has been a fluke, a bit like saying if we hadn’t of got beat 6-1 of Man City, 5-1 off Palace, 3-0 off the mackems and 3-0 off Everton we’d only have a -5 GD which isn’t bad really.

    Martoon,

    That looks looks like a lot of work, but can you please put it in alphabetical order. Just kidding if that was not obvious.
