Just calmed down. What a strange game. We made so many individual errors in the game. Under no pressure. Midfield just seemed nowhere. For an hour it was like 2 mini teams. Some blokes at the back defending and some blokes attacking with nothing in-between. I thought Arter began to take control a little in the second half. We looked better when Smith replaced ibe. Wilson and king looked good.
Love that we went for it last 5 or 10 minutes. Belief starting to show. Cook scores then prevents a goal by pushing their bloke over.

Callum looks immense.
Really odd game today. Midfield was a shambles and Franno had his usual mare at right back. It was only when Smith came on that we took over. Surman seemed really unsettled with Arter next to him. We transgressed back to Watford / West Brom in the first half and start of the second but then the old magic started appearing from nowhere.

Not really. If Newcastle weren't so s*** Francis would have cost us another match with a bone headed mistake, and was torn apart by Atsu ALL GAME. I never said Cook shouldn't start, I said moving Francis to RB, to accommodate Cook, was a poor decision. Because Francis is now a bad RB, as seen today in his defending. And, well, Francis wasn't my MoM, not sure why Sky picked him over Cook/Ake/King/Begovic, that's there opinion and I disagree. And when I said "p*** poor decision making", I prefaced it with a nice "If". As in, if EH is shunting Francis back out wide because he doesn't want to drop him, to bring in another central defender, then that is a poor way to pick a team, because it implies that certain players are undroppable when they shouldn't be. Still not sure why Smith was dropped, we looked much better when he came on.
Not sure why you feel the need to quote something I said at the start of the game and rub it in my face, especially when you haven't proved me wrong with anything you've said. If you genuinely think we won that game because Francis played in RB, then great, but I disagree.
