Well, what can I say, its been a few years since we've slotted The Toon away from home, its not going to be an easy game, and I actually think we might get whitewashed ourselves. Sort of stadium there's where once 1 goes in another usually follows.
What I can put across is the fact that as hard as it might be, we must forget about Reading, and the team and fans, management and board are going to have to all put together to get the best finish for the end of the season, then hopefully regroup in a please god more fruitful summer (Hopefully Nobody Leaves Eh?) , and just (its getting hard mind) persist. You can only hope our time will come.
If anyone hasn't been to Newcastle before - and is going Saturday (I'm Not) - Think of it as sitting in the clouds, watching a game of Subbuteo with loads of Half Naked men talking in rather unusual tones and telling you how fantastic it is they sell more replica shirts than they do. Oh, and I hope you like Climbing Stairs.
If your not going - recommend a good place to watch it elsewhere for anyone interested
Anyway without further or do, I'm sure like mine your concern is Everton - we need to get back on track - Team/Tactics/Score/First Goal Scorer?
If we can sneak a 1-0 - I'd be happy - Might pluck for a goal from Mikel Arteta - he REALLY needs to work on adding to his tally, and whilst he's actually beat some men and get into games with as much full bloodeness as he can. Never always been a total raver of his talents but thats the point - he is talented and he should be doing more. Scoring and dictating the game being the main 2. Dare I say would new life be breathed into him if we moved him to Right Wing? Seamus after all could do with a break?
How would you go and play up there? Positive, Containing, Counter Attack or just plain old defensive smash and grab? To me, maybe i'm wrong, getting wide works well at Newcastle.
Maybe play a Diamond? Already noticed a few requesting a change to Wing Backs - between the 2 here - I've gone for a Diamond. I realise this isn't Champ Manager - but we could do with fresh ideas.
