Loan with obligation to buy at the end of the season, and we've got ourselves a deal.

They can't afford the loan fee.  :aww:

12 points between now and when we go to Man Utd is realistic and being cautious with predictions. If we could make it to 22-25 points before the killer run in December then we'll be fine.

Rafa will always have the team well drilled and defensively aware. We may have a few bad days but these will be blips.

In the other hand I think that as long as you have Ritchie on corners and free kicks with the likes of Lascelles, Clark, Joselu and Mitro to aim for we will nick one goal wins and score draws even in days when our open play attacking isn't working out.

This is a big difference to seasons under McClaren, Carver and Pardew and is why we will finish comfortably top 12

Wonder if Rafa will line up some deals and leak them to the press to see what happens...
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave

They'll betray you in my name

If we could be on 10 points before the next international break, I'd be fairly happy.

I'm just glad to have got a couple of early wins to keep us off the bottom to start with. I still think we are in for a difficult season because we lack a bit up front. Too early to make daft predictions at the moment, let's see how we get on in the next few games and we'll have a better idea. That said, I think we'll be okay, we are going to be hard to beat and that is the most important thing when you don't have the firepower at the other end.

Pardew (:anguish:) correctly said the other day that 12 wins is enough to stay up (assuming you draw a few and not lose every other remaining game).

On that basis we need 10 wins from our remaining 34 games, I'd be very surprised if this squad (with Rafa) couldn't achieve that.

Even less than 12 tbh, because 36 points is often enough and that's without draws. 10 wins, 8 draws is about right, but Rafa will be aiming for more than just survival.

We look solid, the midfield has a good balance, we've got pace on one wing, guile on the other, our number 10 is grafting his arse off, the striker is a threat and a presence, we're creating chances.

So far so good like.

You missed: incredibly disciplined in defence, excellent worth ethic throughout the squad and strong at set pieces.
