    C'mon lads, you're playing the worst team in the league who only have 10 men and the leakiest defence and you're barely troubling them :emoticon-0121-angry

    Impressed with Williams. Disappointed with Tzolis. We're not really making the most of the extra man.

    Lack of quality really showing. Rupp's pasing is slow, ponderous and inaccurate, Sargent looks clueless in possession, Tzolis looks timid. Everyone else looks OK, but we need the quality high up the pitch in a game where we have so much of the ball.

    Rashica would be tearing them to shreds. Could do with a number ten imo.

    The longer we go without scoring, the more they will feel like pushing for a winner.

    Feels churlish to complain after the 10th minute red card was given (correctly), but don't feel like we're getting any other decisions today. Fairly sure Pukki was onside, the Manquillo handball is given against us, Shelvey fouls Aarons and it goes the other way, etc.

    Rupp player of the half for me? Use of the ball has been good, definitely our most progressive passer. Agree that we're not moving the ball quick enough though.

    We need width from somewhere. Aarons is doing his best, Brandon Williams doesn't seem keen to push on in attacking areas, and then Sargent, Tzolis and Pukki are all narrow.

    Giannoulis on for Williams might help that, otherwise I'd be instructing Tzolis to start much, much wider. He's been at his best coming into the penalty area from the side, rather than waiting in the half-space channel for a ball through from Rupp, Gilmour - that's Pukki's job and they're on top of each other.

    So different to the Wolves match. Ball being knocked about with no urgency and there is no one to make a telling final pass. With only 10 men NUFC looked more dangerous in front of goal.

    Brandon has been brilliant Max also, Rupp trying to be Normann but has the turning circle of a lorry and takes too many touches.
    Sargent lot's of huff n puff but looks clumsy.
    Tzolis is doing well but thinks he's Messi, Gilmore solid, nice free kick and slick clever passing World class.

    Pukki still waiting for Emi to play that killer pass .

    Handley strong in the air Gibson likes to roam then gets lost .


    Can see a win here

    Giannoulis on for Tzolis imo! He has been terrible!

    Rupp has been on the ball a lot, but he takes so long on it, gives it away too often and his passes arent quick enough.

    For who?

    We need more penetration from Gilmour in the middle.

    We have no urgency when in possession compared to them, though hopefully they will tire later on and we can take advantage.

    Looks like PLM coming on at half time, at least he'll shoot from range with a bit more accuracy.

    Really, really poor first half, slow, ponderous, no width, no movement. They do realise they're playing against 10?
    Expect a much improved second 45.
    Lees-Melou on for Tzolis at HT

    Baffled at how Amazon were dwelling on that "Newcastle penalty decision" as if there was any serious danger of it being given. Rupp clearly nicked the ball away, would have been a travesty if VAR gave it.

    Five minutes of VAR. Chances of five mins added? Yeah right.

    It's a pen imo

    Wilson puts it straight at Krul, who pushes it in.
