    Joselu has silenced me after his last two games. He is no Batistuta, but he has been quite effective and what he does. Joselu won the mort aerial challenges in that game including both sides

    Bottom 3 by Christmas.
    no one expected them to get anything at Old trafford, the damage was done with crap performances against Bournemouth,Brighton, Huddersfield.
    So much for the comments that no one would hammer them this season as Rafa has them so well organised, what utter rubbish , could not stop crosses coming into the box, full backs have forgotten how to defend.

    Do you always put words in other people’s mouth when they don’t agree with you? It’s quite a jump between “the squad assembled for a billion is better than ours” and “we should accept mediocrity”, no?

    Our team won’t get better because we want it to be. It will when sufficient funds are invested.

    Up until then we will be underdogs opposed to the big sharks in the league. Hopefully we will grab some points off them here and there nevertheless, but “defensive underperformances” will also happen more often than not.

    I would be happy for a good season with us punching above our weight – it is possible, we have a good manager and a young team which shows hunger and desire to improve. But if we want sustained growth and constant presence near the top it won’t happen with signing bargain third choice strikers off midtable clubs like Stoke.

    The only reason I’m not heavily criticizing the summer window business is I’m trying to look at it as paving the way for a takeover and a better future – Rafa swallowing it and staying on the crucial argument in favor of. But if we take that away, the board, Ashley, Charnley or whoever you choose to name let the club and the fans down big time as with that investment we can hardly expect anything different than bottom half finish and crossing fingers there are enough other clubs in turmoil to go down.

    KevinHann, where did I put words in your mouth, please be specific. I am not sure what your issue is with my opinion that the side’s defending was poor today, and the side can play better than that. Perhaps you could explain.

    They are technically superior, read the game faster and better, and are most probably collectively more athletic. You’re only chance is to maintain a good shape, out work them, have a bit of luck and hope they don’t. Rafa will recognise that being effective at both ends is a tough ask for this group against epl opposition, and nigh on impossible away to the senior sides, even so, conceding 4 will sting his professional pride. I’m surprised he didn’t go with Joselu up top and Perez behind, or on the flank, with Diame behind. We’d have had less in attack, but have been tighter in defence, maybe nicked one and a point, but really, whatever way he went, the odds were right against us.

    I think it’s fair to say we’re all trying to look at this current season as paving the way for a takeover and a better future. Trying to look at it that way grossly understates the hope we all share for a brighter future.

    I’m sure we all share the wish a sensible bid is lodged to buy out Ashley, he’ll see beyond his own greed and consider the damage and despair he’s been responsible for over the 10 years of his ownership.

    Can we hope that next week brings us hope that we can look forward to starting a different journey? A new journey with an ambitious owner who’ll trust and support one of the best managers we’ve ever had, a manager who has pinned his colours to this club’s mast and help Rafa Benitez succeed in their mission – that of success for Newcastle United.
