Steve Bruce after losing at Chelsea.

Less than thirty per cent possession, no shots on target.

Steve Bruce...We have to be more clinical.

Yeah ok Steve, got ya.

Even so Newcastle go into this game as firm favourites..

Forecast for this one Newcastle 2 Wolves 0.

Not sure about Newcastle being favourites but it'll still be a damn hard game all the same and I'd take a draw all day long. Again, seeing the team selection after Slovan will give us hope or otherwise....

Cannot believe how negative KK has become over recent weeks re Nuno and the team.

Yes - we all know we have been struggling (linked to Neves drop in form & Jota injury??) recently, but Newcastle favourites??

Just learned they will be missing Schar (big loss) and Carroll (big, but no loss!). We will win this one.

How about a great defensive performance and two great finishes by Traore away to City...
Surely those are real positives?

I don't know how much last season's Newcastle team differ from this, but despite the trip to Bratislava I think this away trip will suit us. My Joe is going up there with K'Ford Wolves and some pals, great adventure for them, and I tip Cutrone to get a later winner...Way aye bonnie lad!

Even when we had our poor patch last season it felt like we had some overarching plan. This season we just seem to go from game to game, even half to half, trying different things just to get a result in that game.

If we are midtable and qualified in the Europe then hopefully the January transfer window can be used to rectify things.

They have some injury problems, so I fancied us to take something from this game.
But the loss of Boly is crucial

Not much in the air though with that. Max on the left for me with Saiss or Dendoncker on the right. I don't see Jesus performing any miracles if he comes in.

An opportunity to see if the concerns over Kilman having the ability to cope with the physicality of the Premier league are miss-placed.
hopefully Sanderson makes the bench, a player who could make the first team break through this season.

Sanderson could start now as I feel he has the strength and temperament for it. Elliot Watt is also knocking on that door and he is a very creative midfielder with a stunning free kick goal always lurking in him, he too could start soon if required. My recent attending of games at Carlisle and Morecambe of the U21's has given me a lot of confidence in the lads who are bubbling under the surface in that squad and as the system they play is exactly the same as the first team setup under Nuno, they'd fit in easily.

Liking the starting XI. Donk-Doc-Adama a strong right hand side. Think we’ll win 3-1.

We may be missing Boly, but we miss last years Jota even more. We can't seem to hold the ball for more than 1 pass anymore - wtf is going on?

Another half of clueless football in which we manage to gift the opposition the opening goal with our defensive weaknesses.

Midfield as good as non-existent and Traore completely neutralised. In open play we just prod the ball around the back then launch it with little accuracy. It's really bad football.

Far too little again, even if the 2nd half was an improvement.

The central midfield just doesn't work, neither stops the defence conceding nor serves up goal chances.

2 pts in the last 2 games against 2 rubbish sides.

Definitely work better with both Doherty and Traore operating down the right. Why did VAR not think it was a penalty at the end? If Doherty had thrown himself backwards woul the decision for exactly the same shirt pull have been different?

I wasn't that impressed with Jota myself, he does something good and then gives the ball away by trying to be too clever.

Jota was badly at fault for their goal and also made a complete hash of a very presentable free header right in front of goal. His directness does cause problems for the opposition when it comes off, but more often than not he just gives possession away. He routinely makes bad choices whilst in possession, which is something you would hope the coaches are working on.

I seem to remember us having this habit of appearing clueless for the first half of games last season, then stepping it up in the second half. It's really frustrating, as with a 90 min performance we comfortably win today.

One thing's for sure, we need to start converting more of the chances we're creating, and Newcastle were there for the taking in the end. Talking of which why wasn't the blatant shirt pull on Doherty not reviewed by VAR or was it because the Ref didn't want to give a late pen against the home team? Had that been in the middle of the park the Ref would have given a foul and a yellow card.

It was my Joe's first away match with his mates, next stop for him, Villa Park on Wednesday.

The shirt pull was reviewed by VAR - they didn't think there was enough to warrant changing the refs decision - pathetic. Contrast with Man U first penalty where the VAR judge overruled the ref and gave the penalty because he "subjectively" thought that the defender was preventing the attacker reaching the ball. It was hard to see what he meant on MOTD. So far we have had no VAR decisions overturning the ref in our favour., Twice we have had overturns against us and yesterday looked to me as though it ought to have been an overrule. Perhaps they will start evening themselves out after Christmas! :roll:

VAR is an absolute load of crap, it's not being used properly and I don't think they know how to use it properly. Scrap it I say, or at least until they know how to use it properly. There is too much at stake, but who gives a toss about the paying supporters?

A bankrupt first half performance which improved greatly once Donk and Doc swapped roles. We are a second half team only, we sleepwalk through most first halves. We are hard to beat but are drawing too much, we need to get three points not the one, teams like Saints and Newcastle are ideal teams to beat and move up the table and we have messed those two game sup. VAR is a complete shambles, they need the ref to consult his touchline monitor more and make the final decision, not the scientists up in that fucking studio room.
