Newcastle (A) - 06/12/15

Recommended Posts

Well I had a great time setting up the Southampton thread during the week. The result was just gorgeous. The missus didn't have to spend the night in the back garden so result all round.

 

I think these are pure shite and if we are at even 70% of our last few away performances we sound have enough to tonk these. Interesting to see the team as Klopp has a bit of a headache at the moment with everyone playing to or above a decent standard.

 

I'll go for a 1-3 win to us. Comfortable and effective.

Won't be watching this.

 

Klaudgers has taken away any enjoyment I get from seeing us play and I probably won't watch us again, until the chancer has been fucked off.

Not sure who will be available. Sturridge is our best striker when fit but he just played an hour after being out for a long time. Can he play again so soon?  

 

Firmino has done well as a false 9 away to Chelsea and Man City, but even though this is away Newcastle represent a different test, so not sure on the need to be cagey or clever when we should bulldozer them... although beware being over-confident.

 

Origi surprised all of us against Southampton with a lovely hat-trick. He has pace to burn and his confidence must now be high.

 

Benteke has been in and out the team with a couple of niggly injuries, and even though he has scored some good goals you get the sense that he hasn't really got going because he hasn't yet found a partner, or found a way to work well with the whole team. I think there is more to come from him. In fact, there is more to come from all of them. It's an exciting time to be a red. 

 

I like the suggestion above - Sturridge and Origi up top, Benteke to replace Sturridge for the last 30 mins.

Fingers crossed McClaren tries to go out with a blaze of glory and attacks, leaving lots of space in behind. He's all but gone anyway.

 

However, if they sit back then starting with Benteke makes sense. We should get some joy in the wide areas to whip in crosses and he could dominate Coloccini, who's been poor and was apparently due to be dropped.

 

Everything points to an easy win, so I'm expecting a drab niggly game that we fluke via a deflected shot off Allen's buttock which should've been disallowed due to three players standing offside.

It's weird that all the things which make me nervous about this are all the things that should make me more confident.  Looking at the two teams, the only question should be how many we win by - and that worries me.  I can't control the cycle from confidence, into over-confidence, into complacency, into AAARRGGHHHH!

 

Football is stupid.

Benteke's looked a bit poor in his last two games. I'd bring him off from the bench for this one, throw himself about when their backline has been worn out a bit, ditto Firminho. Start Sturridge up front with Milner Lallana and Ibe behind him. Lucas and Henderson in the centre. Would have preferred to see Coutinho and Firmino start, but Cous hamstrings are a bit rusty, and Firmino also looked a bit poo recently.

This is where I am. 

 

I expected us to fuck up at half time at Man City

I expected us to fuck up at half time at Southampton

I expect us to fuck up Sunday

 

If we win on Sunday I will start to believe, that is when I really expect us to fuck up

We should be putting this rubbish to the sword quite easily but Klopps biggest test is keeping the players focused on the job in hand still expect us to win though, watching this in the City so any recommendations on the best place to watch would be welcome

It's great that we're now spoiled for choice for a front line to terrorize the fuck out of a fragile Barcode defence.  I'd be for having Origi & Sturridge in tandem again for at least a half, keep that nice little partnership developing.

Newcastle actually have some half decent attacking players like Wijnaldum, Perez and Cisse when he's on form. Problem for them is they're defensively one of the worst teams in the league.

 

If we attack with pace and power like we did against Southampton we should blow them away. Original should be given a chance to get his first premier league goal.

Appreciate the solidarity, mate. I really do.

 

We can't let this megalomaniac destroy our club in silence.

Lost last game 5-1...in bottom 3...in front of their own supporters and live on tv.

 

They have to be dead up for it and therefore dangerous.

 

On the other hand they look really poor and as long as we aren't complacent we really should be winning.

Web watch:

 

According to Toontastic, the Barcodes best performances this season have been against Chavs and Spurs. Two big clubs, live on TV, motivated their better players to advertise themselves.

 

YNWA claiming Origi due to start.

I'm really looking forward to following this via Flashscore.com

 

The fact that you use flashscore.com rather than flashscores.co.uk actually makes me physically sick.
