The way forward

Post  vinkel on 2017-10-22, 3:23 pm

In every game attack attack attack . I watched the highlights on c5  last night not a great deal to go on, but the teams in this league are there for the taking if you set up to be offensive. Have the attitude you score 1 we will score 3.  Take off the shackles Sym on go for it.

Sounds great in theory but suicidal in practice. Our defence is brittle and all out attack would leave it open to heavy defeat.

It's not even Christmas and we seem to be panacing, two wins from the next two games will change things dramatically.

Don’t have the players or manager to go all out offensive and, we just don’t have the players to go defensive so what do we do now?

We do what we did yesterday, their goals came from a mistake by us, a free kick that never was and massive deflection.

Keep Our heads and win on Saturday

3 draws and no losses. Were getting there. How many draws did BSA get early on in his tenure. Took a while before we built up a head of steam. I expected November/Xmas time before we started doing the business.

If we can get McNair in there, possibly at the expense of Catts who looks either jaded or disintersted at the mo, we can turn draws into wins imo.

I still fully expect us to climb up this table AND quite a way up.

Stop dreaming Gil, they'll never get rid of him for some unknown reason otherwise who else would have negotiated a 6 year extension to his contract a couple of years back for such a player given no-one else gets them.

There is a noticeable difference in Catts this season, was never the quickest but he is struggling and I agree with Gil, and McNair will take his place.

well thank heavens for that. Finally a season where people aren't portraying Catts as some sort of superhero.

Last season both Newcastle and Brighton were promoted playing different styles. Brighton played a cautious style trying not to give too much away, it worked for them because of the players they had.
Newcastle went gungho as the had a team made up to attack, that worked for them.
We are not good in defence,  but do have a decent threat going forward. So if our defenders have faith our attackers will score it will give that extra faith in defence surely.
