Who Was Newcastle’s Best Player In Disappointing Defeat At Watford?



Well, it’s back to back poor performances from the lads as Newcastle fall 2-1 at Watford for their second consecutive defeat, both away from home.

After a promising first half, Watford came out inspired to salvage their season in the second. They may have done just that after winning two penalties to secure a precious three points, pushing them six points clear of the relegation places. Though Bournemouth and Aston Villa will play their game in hand tomorrow.

Newcastle didn’t take all of their chances in the first half, which allowed Watford to steal the day with a superior display after the halftime whistle. Once again, this Newcastle team came out flaccid after edging the first half. That’s happened too often this season.


There were some decent performances, but none that really caught the eye. Gayle took his goal well and continues to score after the season restarted. Allan Saint-Maximin had a few moments and tried to make things happen.

However, we were disappointed with our defenders, especially the full-backs, as well as our two midfielders. They all struggled mightily in the second half, though Jamaal Lascelles had a decent game overall.

It was a tale of two halves once again for this Newcastle side. While Watford only scored from the penalty spot, they ultimately did what was needed to get the three points this afternoon.

    Rule 1 of Management is that if you are elevated to that position from the shop floor you have to put some distance between yourself and your former colleagues so that they respect you as the new boss and you then have the distance that allows you to manage effectively.

    Nights out that were ten pinters become a quick one with the lads before you excuse yourself before becoming embroiled in a piss up.

    Bruce has forgotten this. Being pally withe players might feel cozy but its not effective and the boundaries become blurred.

    Ponchettino it is then.

    Four married blokes go fishing. After an hour, the following conversation took place:

    First bloke: “You have no idea what I had to do to be able to come fishing this weekend. I had to promise my wife I will paint every room in the house next weekend.”

    Second bloke: “That’s nothing; I had to promise my wife I will a build new pool deck.

    Third bloke: “Man, you both have it easy! I had to promise to remodel the kitchen.”

    They continue fishing then realize the fourth bloke hasn’t said a word. So they ask him. “You haven’t said what you had to do to come fishing. What’s the deal?”

    Fourth bloke: “I just set my alarm for 5:30 am. It went off, I shut it off, gave the wife a nudge and said, “Fishing or Sex” She said, “Wear sun-block.”

    Three Ducks Walk into a Bar…
    “Say, what’s your name?” the bartender asked the first duck.

    “Huey,” was the reply.

    “How’s your day been, Huey?”

    “Great. Lovely day. Had a ball. Been in and out of puddles all day. What else could a duck want?” said Huey.

    “Oh. That’s nice,” said the bartender. He turned to the second duck, “Hi, and what’s your name?”

    “Dewey,” came the answer from duck number two.

    “So how’s your day been, Dewey?” he asked.

    “Great. Lovely day. I’ve had a ball too. Been in and out of puddles all day myself. What else could a duck want?”

    The bartender turned to the third duck and said, “So, you must be Louie?”

    “No,” she said, batting her eyelashes.

    “My name is Puddles.

    As your earlier comment was not about colour, creed, race or her [Diane Abbott] assent and were ‘making comparisons to their [her with Steve Bruce] inability to express and deliver logic in their chosen fields…… Both out of their depth’……

    Hmmm, wouldn’t Bowis, Farage or even Tommy Robinson be a better choice than Diane Abbott?

    I went M.Dubz for best player. Never expect a keeper to save penalties and he did pretty well with everything else that came at him. Everyone else went to bits second half.

    Hayden is a great miss for us. He’s so consistent. Lascelles receives my vote. I hope he’s given them a rocket for an apathetic 2nd half performance!
    I disagree with Bruce about soft penalties. Our midfield disintegrated after the break. It needed Longstaff or Bentaleb in there far earlier. We have coasted or not shown enough desire in four of our six restart matches.

    Kevin your intelligent but your not as smart as me mate.

    You won’t answer the question because you know what I’m trying to do. You won’t answer because you can’t answer!!

    You spout 13 years of lies and fakeovers and when I ask a question about it all you refuse to answer or beat around the bush with a babble of rubbish that has no relevance to what I asked.

    Don’t demand answers and that from other posters if you can’t provide them yourself.

    You can’t answer mate because you don’t know anything.

    This is getting beyond a joke with you, why this blog? Why now? Do you not see the good people of this blog? and not to mention Ed and the Harrison family.

    What your doing is bang out of order.

    Jail

    I guess they were both really bad away from home.
    I didn’t delve deep, just read the overall summary of their time having the pitches.
    Both very underfunded too so probably never really had the clout to come back.
    I lived in Luton for a while – their ground was an absolute eyesore, they always planned to move it to land between airport and motorway, but as far as I know it’s still where it was.

    Watched Brentford a few times this season, NUFC apparently have been tracking Benrahma, he,s some player for a young un, scores, creates and is a handful. Only issue is Brentford might get promoted or one of the London clubs will snap him up. One of the reasons this takeover Must happen ASAP.

    “The other way around” meaning mund is playing games with me, which is precisely why I am not answering. I’m here to have discussions, not to play games. I’ve seen this “game” before from Mund when he accused me of not being a real fan because I had some hope for the club when we finished 5th in the league, before we then sold all our good players. Not playing silly games any more.
