So for each 90 minute game each game we spend approximately 6:43 with the ball in the oppositions final third :lol:

:lol: exactly.

6 mins a game man. That is humiliating.
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

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
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Let's be generous to Bruce for once and round it up to 7. It will look better on his CV.

But, but, but 31 points, better than last year, same tactics as Rafa  :frantic:

So overnight Steve has gone from wanting to give AC a new contract to he might not play again. Surely the fitness guys (if we have any) can tell that the guy is f***ed

“Front-foot, expansive attacking football”

https://theathletic.com/1599277/2020/02/14/newcastle-why-no-penalties-premier-league/?source=shared-article


Not only have Newcastle made the fewest passes in the top flight this season, they have also made the fewest in the opposition half (4,332) and delivered the fewest balls into the box with just 540.

According to WhoScored.com, Newcastle also average the least “action” in the final third, with just 22 per cent of their possession coming at the opposite end of the pitch. Most sides average between 26 and 31 per cent.

Considering Newcastle also have the lowest average possession in general, at just 34.3 per cent, and little more than a fifth of that is enjoyed in the final third, it highlights just how infrequently they are in offensive positions.

Watching the game highlights that, also.

Check out where we like to defend the most :lol:

Only just noticed this. The lack of defending in midfield is pretty unique across the league, and no doubt Europe.  :lol:

Yep, I honestly believe we’d have been top 8. Especially if he’d been allowed to spend the Joelinton money on who he wanted to.
