And yet we're 4/5th in the league. Incredible

Apart from the very top, this season has been very poor in the PL. Look at teams like United and West Ham, as well as this devastated Newcastle side - all still competing for Europe.

Werner is a comedy act. He's not always this bad, but he's not going to change much and he won't be rediscovering that form that got him his first move to the PL. There's a reason he's a 15M player, and it's probably not worth it.

This season seems to be a bit backward - start great then get progressively worse.
surely we should be getting better as we become accustomed to Ange’s tactics etc

Changes have made absolutely no discernible difference nor has there been any tactical switch to at least combat Newcastle’s threat.

They have actually, they haven't been able to play through us as easily with Hojberg there.

Attacking wise yeah we're hopeless

For this formation to work you basically need the world's best player at no 6. We haven't played well since Bissouma became shit

The modern game, regardless of whether you’re playing for titles, mid table or fighting to survive requires teams to play as a ‘team’. When this happens, it doesn’t matter whether you’re a top side or scrapping for survival, you’re going to have to earn your potential victory. The days of having ‘luxury’ players are gone. At the moment neither Maddison or Son are doing anywhere near enough and it’s costing us way too many points. Had it not been for Utd matching our incompetence, we wouldn’t be in a semi comfortable position in 5th.

Watching us in the final third is painful. Just pass, pass, pass going from one wing to the other. Not interested in crossing or shooting, just pass pass pass sideways and backwards

We're absolutely not ready for champions league football. Regardless of whether we get it or not.

Anyone else baffled why we subbed Son and kept Werner on? We needed Hail Mary and Son is good at those. First game where I’ve questioned Ange’s decision-making.

Our persistence with Mason really grinds my gears. There is absolutely nothing to suggest that he adds anything, and he was bang average when in charge. Retaining out of sentiment (if there's any of that involved) is utterly pathetic.

He's DL's inside man :D

Yea been better last 5 but Newcastle can afford to be more comfortable holding defensively now

My favourite thing is how we play so many dangerous crosses from wide areas instead of needlessly recycling sideways passes until we lose possession.

We should be doing better on the pitch and better in the league with the squad of players we have.

Not sure if be clamouring to give Ange too much more money over the summer considering the investment he's already had and the performances we've been serving up.
May as well sack him then?
