Match thread - Newcastle

We've won 4 all season, and that was with a bang in form Pukki. Quite why anyone thinks we can win 8 of the last 13 or whatever with a misfiring Pukki is utterly beyond me. .

I don’t think anyone really does? Not really . Not if they have any clue about football , or  they just want to be contrary because their only purpose in life is to start nonsense threads and count the replies. We have been down for weeks . 7 pts adrift and a terrible GD? 
 

I don’t  agree about the Chumps though. I’d rather be in the prem.

Can we all admit we are going down now with Liverpool  next that must be it .

People wrote us off before the Man City game. It can be won, just like any other game.

I'd rather be the big fish in the small pond. Competing in the Champs or participating in the Prem is the choice really. If we want to stay up and not spend any money then we'll end up doing a Burnley. I don't want to watch that **** every week. I remember the Hughton era and that was soul-destroying enough.

Jake Humphrey just sent tweet reminding us weve only lost 2 in last 8. Given they were Man U and Tottenham our recent form is pretty good.

Thats probably the most frustrating thing we are so close to making a go of things. Just a couple of fluke goals in a couple of games and we’d be in such a better position

I remember Hamilton. And Roeder. And Grant . We’ve had some shockers KIO .

Games like this are not the reason for our predicament.

Watford, Sheffield United, Wolves, Palace at home, and Villa away are the games that have done it. Add 6 points from that lot and we're right in it. These games we're damaging both in terms of result and confidence. Both from a player and fan perspective. I feel confidence is starting to return though, but probably too slowly and sadly, too late.

Wish all on here would not continue to say we are down or say Farke out or question the use of subs.  Don’t they realise they will be called Binners by the Usual Suspects

Aye but Farke in the Champs is a different prospect to those.

Also worth noting how weak the league will be next year with WBA and Leeds likely to go up (unless they bottle it as usual).

Wet Spam will be f**ked financially, they literally said they cannot afford to go down in their annual accounts (they were sitting pretty in the top 6 at the time so probably seemed to be impossible to implode like they have)

Even if we win all four it still only takes us to 30 points. Today was a must win match as somewhere away from home we need wins.

Haven't seen the "Usual Suspects" around for a while.

I thought they'd been taken over by the "Silent Majority"...

Wolves, Sheffield and Watford are all winnable. Not saying we'll grab nine points, but six is certainly possible. We're playing good football right now. Again, not saying we're as good as up, but I don't believe this team is going to quit fighting.

How did we not win that.

Difficult to see where a better chance of 3 points is going to come from

Newcastle are top 10 in the league and we were away. We have 6 games remaining from bottom 10 clubs. I'd say those better opportunities, no?

If we can win the big six pointers at home, we'll pick up a couple of surprise results as the season draws to a conclusion with teams having little to play for. 

If Burnley and Southampton can get themselves all but safe by the time we play them, that should help.

As LDC continues to say, all games are winnable! The longer it goes on though and opportunity’s like today get wasted the less the chances are. We need 6 wins and a couple of draws to get to 38 points. I can’t see where they are coming from but there is a chance I guess, it’s just very small and getting smaller by the week

We play good football but we don't take our chances. Other teams generally do it seems even if they only get 1 or two against us. Result relegation.

We need to rest Pukki - he's not in any goalscoring form (tough but true) or has been 'worked out' - and be generally more ruthless from midfield in attack - Not always try to walk or over-pass the ball into the net.

I don’t think he’s been ‘worked out’ as he continues to get chances, he’s just not taking them

What I mean is goalies know what he's going to do with a 1 on 1. He also had that opportunity to strike when their goalie was stranded - but obviously lacked the confidence to attempt it. He needs a rest.

Teemu Pukki is injured and that’s why he’s not as sharp

Then start somebody else!

So why wasn't he substituted then?

The real reason is that like most strikers he's going through a sticky patch and the chances he was putting away for fun are no longer going in.

Think it's called pressure

Is he going through a sticky patch? He had that 8 game goalless run but has scored 5 in his last 11.

The problem is that last season he was in ridiculous form - everything he touched turned to gold. That was never going to last. 5 in 11, 11 in 24. You’d take that every time in the prem (especially for a bottom half side).
