    It seems that I am assigned the duty/pleasure of creating match-threads :p

    A reverse of this fixture:
    https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/49385203
    The Newcastle striker and record-signing Joelinton scored against a soft Spurs-defence. Seeing how he scored made me concerned for the season. The number of goals he scored since in the league is 1 (one), he appears benched now so all in all maybe allowing him the space and time to attempt to score was a calculated risk. Or, more likely, the Spurs defence was simply just bad.



    It will be interesting to see Bentaleb, I have the impression that he was sold as a disruptive influence and/or un-coachable. Young, good but arrogant and a couple of mistakes in him is how I remember him. Now he is not as young so maybe something else changed as well.

    Starting line-up for me is the same as the one in the NLD. The midfield looked tired for periods of that match so maybe some rotations or earlier substitutions.

    This tie may be the last chance to beat Magpies before Pochettino takes 'em over. Who knows what it will be like then. Kane could be wearing black stripes next time.

    Aurier-Tobi-Sanchez-Davies
    Sissocco-Winks
    Lucas-Steve-Son
    Kane

    COYS!!!

    Kane won't go to Newcastle, but City need an Aguero replacement and as a bonus he'd get big money there.....

    I think it's more likely he'll go to Man Utd.
    JM still has an okay relationship there so we may get one or two coming to us.
    from.. .... Martial.... Matic..... Shaw (even though he gave him a hard time)... Bailly (who I don't rate).

    I think JM will go for that rather than Levy keeping most of the money

    Kane going toon tho lol...
    Doubt aurier will play thoughts go out to him and family. Tanganga could probably start there tomorrow could be a good opportunity for him..

    Not sure about Aurier. Sometimes football let grief to go away for awhile, sometimes not.
    As to NUFC, they will supplant City, if the deal goes through. No one knew about blue side of Manchester even 10 years ago. If they need a striker, and they do, Lewandovski is the only one on Kane level, but not for sale, unlike Harry.

    Am I the only 1 who thinks Tanganga is massively overated because of how shite the rest of defence has been?
    He's never a RB or LB and isn't particularly dominant or quick as a CB.

    I'm reserving proper judgement at this point would be nice to be proven completely wrong (for once;))

    He has shown glimpses of being a monster yet also some questionable decisions and positions which I think are due to his age. I absolutely do not think he is a RB or LB but as you have said, that demonstrates how poor those players are.

    I think I’m a couple of years, he could be a decent Davinson Sanchez, just needs to get some composure and work on timings and positioning to cover as his speed won’t always be enough.

    Strange night.aurier very brave to play even though he wasResponsible for Newcastle goal but can be forgiven in the circumstances.Moura gave best 60 mins for him for a long while in defensive cover but still his final ball is missing.When he was replaced by bergwin one great cross for goal but defensively no where near as good defensively as Moura.Lamela spent 20 minutes giving the ball away and then produces a magnificent run to create third goal.If we had someone with the passing ability of Shelley it would make life so much easier for the strikers

    What a strange night....we play pretty poorly but manage to get a result again. Like him or not, he is getting results that seem impossible based on performances.
    I hate watching teams like Newcastle dominate us on a shot count but that being said to get 3 points again given the performance at this stage in the season is good going especially as other results are being kind.
    What is great to see was the shift in formation which adjusted the game. Credit where credit is due to JM for that.
    I am still convinced we will be playing this type of football no matter who we sign next season but if JM gets our first trophy it raises the question, what will I think about him then?
    It’s a tough one, grind results and actually have chance at winning something even though we are terrible to watch or hope someone else comes in and improves performances and playing style but maybe go another season without winning anything?
    Hmmmm...great result tonight, next to try and beat Leicester.
    Oh and St Totteringham’s day......bahahahahaha

    The counter attacking style can only become successful once you have midfield players who can transition play from recovering balls and moving it on thru the lines to the front men. A couple of counters also broke down between kane and son which is disappointing. I don't think moura bergwjin lamela are of the quality necessary to creating a quality front 3 required personally. Werner would have been perfect. The plan is to drop off in a medium block and turn the ball over quickly. It's not quite working but being worked on. Counter attack football when done correctly is very entertaining. United arsenal very good sides. Leicester likewise. Its about quality of players rather than style. Imo.

    Who do you think we are? MCFC? JM would also keep LoCelso and Steve. They are the top 4+1cup material.

    Don’t know how he has done it with Sissoko and Winks in midfield.Truly remarkeable and I thought celso was poor today as well.Kane back to make us look better and no doubt Mourino has finally instilled some defensivel quality.Lets finish by beating palace so the scum can’t catch us

    Hopefully he is sold his application is about as woeful as his silly beard , used to be 1 in every 5 games he'd play well that has now reduced to 2 in every season.
