Imagine if we didn't choose not to sign Ayew and Gomis.

Janmaat with an idiotic first half too
Well... that optimism didn't take long to dissipate did it?

3 in wasn't enough of a change from the horrendous nature of last season.

Need 3 more.
There's a big discipline issue. 5 reds in 12 games, more reds than anyone else in the last 2/3 seasons, and that's before mentioning Mitrovic.

Elsewhere, Spurs have thrown away a 2-0 lead at home to Stoke, Norwich have been wiping the floor with Sunderland, and Leicester are beating West Ham.

Tbf mitrovic didn't deserve his yellow really.
Wonder if West Ham fans were singing 'Are you watching Allardyce?' today then? Numpties.

Good win for Leicester though and excellent start for Ranieri. Hope they continue to do well under him. Great away wins for Everton and Norwich too. Sunderland look poor and, speaking of Big Sam, wouldn't be surprised to see him turn up there around Christmas time.

Simon Jones is possibly a sociopath. Seems to have no logic behind his decision making.


Janmaat was shite, but I thought the midfield three just didn't work today. Wijnaldum was anonymous, Anita seemed not to do anything overly productive, and Colback seemed to be just running. Hopefully they gel, as with Mbemba and Colo.
I'm really worried that we're relying on a player in Wayne Rooney who is finished at the top level.

There's been plenty of positives so far this season, we look a hell of a lot more solid at the back and the midfield looks compact and solid too, but I think we're going to really struggle to score goals.

Probably sooner if Advocaat doesn't get in players before the window shuts.
Sunderland have already spent quite a bit though.

Fletcher, Defoe, Rodwell, Cattermole, M'Vila, Lens, Johnson, Giaccherini and possibly Alvarez too. All expensive signings.

I still rate Rooney very, very highly. Keeping him up top and him scoring a goal will kick start his season imo.

We'll be grand We'll just win every game 1-0.
Garry Monk really is the most smug, pathetic person of all time.
I find Monk very likeable but he's got Spurs/Liverpool written all over him. What he's done with Swansea is pretty good.
Can't stand his grovelling. He's absolutely spineless, the luckiest manager I've ever seen.

Congratulating the referee for his excellent performance in assisting Swansea. Hope him and Mike Jones go out for drink after the game. Top pals. He left out how Montero, Naughton, Gomis and Taylor could have been sent off in his review of Mike Jones' performance.

Swansea were deserved winners and well worth the three points. Doesn't stop Monk being an absolute thundercunt though.

Anyway remind me how Riviere is the player Newcastle must sign. Or whatever football expert Skacel thinks?
Was at the Spurs game today. We were absolute crap despite having about 90% possession in the first 25 minutes. Somehow we got 2 goals though and could've had more if it wasn't for Butland, who was brilliant all game. He maybe could've done better for the Dier goal but I was at the other end of the stadium so couldn't quite see. Arnautovic was unplayable and had Walker on toast all game, thought he was MOTM today. The Joselu and Ireland substitutions changed the game and our reply was to take off Kane and bring Lamela on. No fucking idea what that was supposed to do, but all it did do was make us even worse. I'd just sell Lamela, take a loss on him to be honest, he is fucking awful and doesn't seem to be that bothered. Also it would be nice if Levy woke up and bought another striker, preferably Austin.

One more thing, it would be good if half the team weren't playing out of position.

Haha yeah, because he is totally going to talk about how his own players could've been sent off Also I don't see how Monk is, in your eyes, lucky. I'd say he is doing a decent job. Maybe you're just bitter, I don't know.

They have, but I just refer to Advocaat asking the board for more signings, if he doesn't get his wish I can see him leaving.

Hopefully this season I get my wish of Sunderland going down, the fuckers.

Yeah that's my point. Don't. Best not to claim other teams try to kick you off the park, because it makes you look like an arrogant prick. Especially when that would mean Monk would have to take responsibility for Montero diving, Gomis studding Haidara, Taylor scissor tackling Mitrovic and Naughton kicking the ball away. The ref's decision to ignore these incidents were presumably 'spot on'. I say ignore he booked Mitrovic for getting scythed down, and also give him a stern talking to when Cork fouled him....
There's a Campaign Against Newcastle imo
Mike Jones has always given weird decisions since Sissoko hit him in the face. He gave weird decisions before that as well mind.

Always reckons teams who play 'nice football' get more favourable refereeing. Coyle's Bolton and Di Matteo's West Brom spring to mind.
Haven't seen Mitrovic's yellow as MOTD cut it (who knows why).

In terms of yesterday, its too easy to slag off Janmaat for his performance, but he was shite even before his idiotic dismissal. No out-and-out back-up/competition in that position is clearly going to be a problem. I only saw the first 50 or so minutes (browser problems made it barely watchable) but also agreed the midfield didn't function properly at any point, and it sounded even more disjointed when Sissoko limped off, while I don't know if Wijnaldum and Anita actually did anything. The stats show we only had a third of possession in the entire game and managed 4 shots all game, and clearly we don't have the players to do anything productive with that.

Obviously still 36 games to go, but bit worrying the away day malaise and ill discipline from the last year and a half hasn't subsided yet.

Fletcher, Defoe, Rodwell, Cattermole, M'Vila, Lens, Johnson, Giaccherini and possibly Alvarez too. All expensive signings.

Sunderland is a weird one. They've signed 5 players this summer (well, four + Coates) on big wages and a couple of big fees but arguably needed to sign a whole new squad, and I think Dick Advocaat wanted substantially more than what he's got. God knows they've still got some colossal duffers, especially in defence.

The weird thing is how many of their fans already seem resigned to being relegated, based on both these two games and an appalling pre-season.

Ayew should have been sent off if Janmaat was (which he was)
And also I hope we do sign Byram.

I dunno how long it'll take Ashley and charnley to realise you can't get away with 1 senior player per position
Mourinho with another jibe at Wenger. Isn't it ironic that Mourinho is now the voyeur.
Not very confident about our chances today, but really hoping City win.

Arsenal bounce back and win 2-0.

I'm the same, feels weird supporting City, but love to see Mourinho lose the plot after a defeat.
Would love to see City beat Chelsea today, Chelsea with a point after two games, Mourinho has come out saying the season isn't won in the first two games, admittedly its not, but hes just sour because of the start last week
Fancy Arsenal and City today.
