There's another point that at, 32, Dubravka is still a developing keeper as well but a stone's throw from what should be his prime. He had a brilliant start to life in the Premier League and you'd expect him to keep going from strength to strength. But his progress has been halted because a different keeper with a lower ceiling has been performing to a standard which makes him hard to drop. It's all just another example of poor squad management. It's rife at Bruce's Newcastle.

Edit: I will admit to not having done any research and therefore may be relying on clichés when it comes to goalie peaks being much later than outfielders. But considering things on a case by case basis, Dubravka was a relative unknown and a bit of a late bloomer in terms of playing at the top level. Not exactly Jamie Vardy but the highest club level he'd played at prior to here was probably Allsvenskan. He knows the Premier League better than he did two/three years ago so you could reasonably expect him to be coming into his best years now.

Remember when Harper would come in and to a good job... Never got the shirt of Given and was nowhere near to getting it.

It's shambolic management.

There was a spell 99/01 mind where Harper did keep the shirt but he genuinely matched Given at the time. Seem to remember Given would get injured, Harper would play, then he’d get an injury and Given would return and it was like that for a season or two. Sliding doors moment was August 01 when Given was in, dropped a couple of clangers against Chelsea & Troyes and there was strong talk Harper would be in for the derby but he stuck with Given and he never looked back.

Absolutely. The Given/Harper situation is a really good example tbh.

The approach taken here is basically schoolboy level stuff. I can't leave so-and-so out cos his Dad'll go potty.

Not sure. Darlows penalty dive had me well entertained for the rest of the match.

Darlow has made the decision for him, the fat f*** certainly wasn't capable of making it.

I reckon he’ll come back in now. Make a slight mistake and then Bruce will revert back to Darlow. Who has been at fault for 3 of the last 5 conceded and decided to just fall on the floor trying to save a penalty :lol:

Play your best players, he's top quality whereas Darlow is lower prem/championship level.

Should have been playing weeks ago.
Darlow has done okay in his absence but should have been dropped a while ago now.
As the fat huffy b****** has now waited too long he has put unneeded pressure on Dubravka to come in and be outstanding which isn't fair.

I think he'll be back at the weekend. Bruce was waiting for something to make the decision for him and hearing him keep bringing up about Darlow being beaten on the near post, that it was a cardinal sin, something we need to look at etc tells me that he has found a way to have the decision made for him and justified

luke edwards will have been told. he's not going to post that otherwise. it would upset his mate.

"John Carver has talked of playing two up top in an effort to score goals, tactically be more direct to grind out points, and just about every other possibility known to man or beast. They are the ramblings of a drowning desperado."

I’m already worried we won’t keep a clean sheet and there’s something that can be pinned on Dubravka. Darlow will be straight back in and Bruce will be praised by his media mates.

As impressive as that save was at the end, it's how vocal he was towards the end that is the main difference. He was going wild at the back line and then screaming at Shelvey "time, time" as the ball was cleared his direction.

Glad to have him back.

He could have done better with their goal, but overall a decent performance. I just hope Bruce isn't picking the team for the next fixture and goes back with Darlow.
