I think Ange made some tactical errors today - not having a player who can hold the ball up in the forward line for one - but despite the tactics - the players have let us down today with a lack of energy/effort. We've been beat to most 50-50 balls, and knocked off the ball too easily.

Sad day. But it shows that the Fulham result was more than a blip. We have seen our team countless times this season escape with a result in games when we have not been comfortable. Now though we don’t seem to be up for games. I do think Ange could have freshened things up a few games ago by using the squad better for starting positions. But …

Start of the season we were pressing aggressively and forcing turnovers the whole time. That's exactly what Newcastle have done to us today. We've become more and more passive as the season's progressed, and now we offer next to nothing.

And there we have it, the first Ange has to go posts.

god, some of you………:D

I’m willing to give him time, but what’s your point of view?

We’re getting worse week on week with a full squad for over 2 months. People have a right to voice concerns.

Same glaring issues, nothing done to rectify anything. I’m fed up getting battered every week. Results have masked performances for ages

Arsenal will be shitting themselves watching this. Easiest 3 points of the season for them.

This system can work but Ange has to accept that it needs to be tweaked.

Ange said he didn’t watch the last game at Newcastle. WTF.
His arrogance will be questioned after we take 5 points from the last remaining games. His tactics is exposed and when the players are not pressing like Pool and Arsenal, this type of football is suicidal

Unless we sign a 100m DM, this style of play ain’t sustainable.

I mean even then, we can't rely on one player to cover massive amounts of spaces that we really shouldn't be affording the opposition. I really question whether the style is sustainable irrespective of the personal.

I'm wondering, is it the system that is always going to leave us defensively short and depending on the centre halves recovery, or is it the personnel. Whatever, this midfield with Bissouma is consistently coming up short along with our forward line. We seem further away from where I thought we were months ago.
A pattern that happened all game and led to at least two of their goals were our midfielders getting pulled forward towards Newcastles defensive line while our wingers, instead of moving the ball forward with a pass or dribble, dribbled backward and lost the ball with acres of space between him and our defenders. By then playing a fast, one-touch pass, Newcastle bypassed our midfield and defence time and time again.

It's happened so many times this season I've lost count. Is it a system thing? Maybe. Can it be remedied by our players being progressive instead of going at it? 100%.

Another cowardly performance from the team costing us not only points but also -4 on GD. Inexcusable.
