These Were Newcastle’s Best Two Players Yesterday

Our Man of the Match yesterday was DeAndre Yedlin who created a goal and conceded a goal in those final 14 frantic minutes of the game yesterday – when Chelsea scored from a penalty and an own goal.

In between those goals, Yedlin put in an excellent cross that Joselu headed home quite brilliantly for his and Newcastle’s second goal this season.

With Rondon coming in he seems to have improved Joselu – that’s good for the team.

We had a feeling that Federico Fernandez could become a starter this season since he’s a very solid and experienced central defender who has played four seasons for Swansea in the Premier League.

And he had an outstanding debut yesterday, and it will be interesting to see what the back line is against Manchester City next Saturday in the late kick-off game.

But first of all, we have Nottingham Forest on Wednesday night, and Shelvey will be out injured again for that game.

    2 RELEGATION’S have 2 things in common.

    1 Ashley.
    2 negative tactics.

    again this is not a reaction to 1 defeat, its more about a style of play, the same way i complained about Pardew, i could copy and paste most of those augments and use them for Rafa..

    your point of view only cuts one way, its like if we win in what ever fashion, Rafa is great, only he could get a tune out of these misfits. or its wow we lost these players are crap.

    whether it be pardew, Shteve, or Rafa, i have seen us play some outstanding football, only to revert to a dull boring grind out a nil nil, it was the same set of players, but a whole change in mentality, that comes from one man.

    we are a mess off the pitch, Ashley takes the blame for that, on the pitch is Rafas domain, and even worse he took control of the signings, so he is saying im wasting money on crap players because you wont give me lots of money to buy the ones i really want. i have to play defensive football because he wont give me the money i need to buy the players i want,

    he was sacked from Real for being to defensive. FACT

    Im a Trump fan and not ashamed of it. but i see something that both Ashley and Trump use to great effect. TRump paid next to nothing for his advertisements, he let the media run negative stories about him which gave him air time for free, Ashley is doing exactly the same, His name or SD is getting so much free publicity because of all these protests, we the fans are only a tiny % of who buys from him.

    its very ironic that you complain about his SD adverts everywhere, then go and give free advertising

    Just for posters to note. I posted after the Spurs game a tweet that someone made online. They spent time compiling the costs the teams that weekend. The cost of our team (first 11 and subs) was 17th only ahead of Cardiff, Burnley and Bournemouth. Bear in mind that this did not includ the likes of Gibson of Burnley or lerma of Bournemouth which would mean we are the 19th most expensively assembled squad in the league. Only Cardiff cost less.

    Rafa said at the end of the window that our first priority is survival, exactly like last season, because we hadn’t improved the team enough which is true. People will not like us playing a certain way in some matches but it is the cards we have been given. Rather than whine at the manager after only the third game having already played Spurs and Chelsea, perhaps it might be worth to look at the root cause.

    To expect us play differently missing a third of our team (lascelles, shelvey, kenedy and Lejuene) is just deluded. Hard work and effort will only trump quality on occasions. All yesterday showed was we lacked quality.

    I still can’t believe how utterly naive people are being on here. You want attacking, entertaining football against the top clubs? Would you be entertained getting smashed 5-0? How do you think the players’ morale would be after that? How would it make you feel being relegated finishing on the same points as Cardiff but with an inferior goal difference?

    I want us to play entertaining, stunning football with lots of goals and coming away with three points more often than not. Look at our squad though, do you think we have the players available who are capable of that?

    People are saying ‘look at Wolves and Fulham, they’re playing attacking football!’ Take a look at who they were able to buy though, and how much money was spent compared to us.

    You can’t buy a Skoda on the cheap and then whine when it won’t perform like a Ferrari. Please people, be realistic. You’re wanting to see something that isn’t achievable with what we have and would result in embarrassing capitulations more often than not.

    And if you’re coming back and saying ‘well I’d rather see that than this dross’ then I really don’t know what else to say to you. Maybe you need to go and support Liverpool or Man City?

    Catchy – you’re a fan of Trump? Well that says it all, doesn’t it?

    By the way, you’ve been posting a hell of a lot since we lost yesterday. I look forward to seeing the same volume of posts from you when we win. You’re definitely going to be conspicuous by your absence if you fail to do so (which you will as your history on the blog has shown).

    @Chancel don’t take the bait. Norway is a troll or an idiot. Neither will publicly change their opinion if challenged. Like a few others on here, he provides me with many a laugh.
