    Aston Villa v Newcastle

    Splendid, the only old school centre forward we have, a man who can head a ball (and little else these days), and we leave the best (only decent) crosser of the ball on the bench. Keep them guessing eh Steve.

    Aston Villa v Newcastle

    Not expecting anything but a defeat from this game, any game right now tbh. Bruce is no doubt going to play his last card by hoying ASM on and hoping for the best.

    Arsenal 18/01/21

    Well I can't really single out Lascelles this time. They were all so poor perhaps Almiron aside who at least looked like he was trying. We had 5 players on the pitch (at least) who simply can't keep up with play. No legs. I can't see a way out of this.

    If you were Shearer....

    Teams starting to pick points up now. Bruce is probably hoping for a miracle when ASM gets back to fitness. Can't see it myself.

    If you were Shearer....

    One has to ask why has he "let the players be comfortable" (sic). That's just bad management if true.

    If you were Shearer....

    The sheep had one job. Just don't go and this could have been over years ago. They selfishly messed that up. I fear they will do it again.

    If you were Shearer....

    They are hiding behind their patsy Bruce. Just hoping he somehow manages to keep the club on the gravy train.

    Sheff utd v newcastle

    The only time I have ever seen a Newcastle team play that badly is when John Carver was in charge. The players have chucked the towel in for me. Not sure what Bruce could do to turn this around now, even if he knew how. He simply has to go.

    This is an absolute embarrassment. Words fail me.

    Arsenal v Newcastle

    You are over thinking it mate. Quite simply I hadn't seen the lad play for a while and he was worse than I remembered. I am already quite aware of how poor some of the others are. I guess I "singled him out" because he hasn't played for a while. "What was so bad about it" is a fair question...

    Me neither.

    Arsenal v Newcastle

    I didn't compare him with any other player. I stated (and I quote) "Lascelles was even worse than I remembered". Which is true.

    Arsenal v Newcastle

    For me Arsenal were very poor but got better as they made replacements. We were also very poor but had nothing to change the game really. Lascelles was even worse than I remembered. Young Anderson looks canny but I am sure Bruce will soon coach that out of him. We should have had Wilson to bring...

    Blatant premier league corruption

    He is OK with the full stop though. Whilst on the subject of punctuation.
