You don't know me.
By reading here I sense we still struggle attacking away from home.
Ia it the system? Or that Miki loses 20+ balls every game? Maybe mix of both. I think Douzi and Xhaka are not good pairing for away games either. Lot of things to look into.
Not all that bad. CL will stretch their already thin squad
I think the system had a lot to do with it today. It didn't flow well at all.
Impressed with how Calum and Sokratis kept Jolinton quiet
Expected a tricky match, wasn't the best best watch, but I'll take a 1 nil away from home all day!! Well done Guns, needed that win so bad.
Credit to Chambers, did well. Nelson, was hoping for a little more. Mkhit, so poor. And PEA, love this guy, so clinical!
We duped each other
Reading here - see who made the post, see what they've been saying for years, then see if it's unbiased or trying to prove some archaic and irrelevant point.
Xhaka had really poor 20 mins at the beginning, but after that he really stepped into the game.
You saw why Pepe and Ceballos haven't started, it will take some time to integrate them into the PL and into the team. That's normal and every minute will help.
I think Newcastle haven't had a clear chance, all shots from distance or some crosses. Nothing special. Chambers and Sokratis did a good work, not stupid moments. That's what i want to see from our CBs.
Xhaka-Guen were different class. Knew I could rely on my boy Emery to pick these two. By far our two best midfielders.
Guen is really going to be world class. No doubt.
Willock was good today, but he is better from deeper, don't understand why Emery keeps trying to play him so advanced, but loved the fact we had three academy players on the pitch a proud moment.
We can tear it up. Neither Nelson or Micky will be starting most games & CM just has to click with best partnerships.
Aub / Lacazette / Pepe will be hard for any team.
True but Sanchez was ruined by United when he was a world class player for us.
Mlhitartan was already a fairweather player before the swap
Only upwards from here lads...
Mustafi is clearly surplus now, and hopefully even he will see that and go to Monaco or wherever.
Ceballos looked drunk. Absolute bobbins.
Does Chambers keep his place then?
imo the problem was that none of our forward players were particularly inventive with the ball, aside from mhki who makes a lot of mistakes. willock, reiss, and auba are great ball carriers and can maintain possession but none of them can be relied on to open up space with an incisive pass. we lacked creativity.
xhaka and guendo actually played really solid today imo.
