Garbage 1st half. 4-3-3 with Trez and AEG in the front line puts massive pressure on Ramsey to create and dictate the play, but he’s just not there yet. Sanson in there 2nd half and I think we’d pick up a bit.

We scored 31 goals in our first thirteen games of this season.

We've scored 11 goals in our second thirteen games of this season.

We've scored three in our last six, not including this one.

We're a team with a single problem.

Not good. But thats Bruceball. To be fair we have struggled to create chances but they have been pretty toothless as well.

Hope to see trez and El Ghoalsie fed more of the ball second half. They both look liveley.

our midfield is really struggling, not sure what to do about it.

We really have to beat these. Jack or no Jack. They are woeful. Jonjo Shelvey is actively passing the ball to us, trying to se up chances for us ffs. He might as well change to a claret and blue shirt. We’re just not choosing to do anything with it. Everytime we can catch them off balance, we stop, hesitate, and pass backwards. Nothing happening.

Good first ten, rubbish after that. Konsa and Mcginn been decent and everyone else meh. Watkins has probably had his worst half for us so far and El Ghazi is looking like our only hope.

The best we're getting out of this one is 0-0.

Although won't be surprised if Gayle or Clark score for Newcastle in a 1-0 defeat.

I really want Ramsey to be a success and there is loads of time for him in the future but he looks lost out there!

Terrible team selection, Not sure why Dean struggles with it so much.

What else could he have done?

If we assume Cash isn't fit enough to start and neither is Sanson, this is the strongest side he could pick isn't it?

The lack of confidence up front shows, but Newcastle put plenty of men behind the ball. Energy on the wings still.

We've contained their attacking play, discplined for the most part, only losing shape when Luiz has given the ball away in the middle.

Drab yes. Disaster? There's another half to go.

The loss of Traore is a real shame and certainly had an impact.

Yep. We looked incredible first half against Burnley and now it's just gone.

Definitely need a tweak.

Ming's losing the battle with Joelington horribly.

As usual, feel sorry for Ollie, we legit just Chuck wild balls at him up top by himself, and expect him to do something with them?

Luiz has actually made a few interceptions.

This one looks like it might be too tough for Ramsay.

Last week Sanson showed he can keep things ticking over, and can also make the odd penetrative run.

We seriously need some inspiration here.
