It's for his little daughterWhat does Bruno's goal gesture mean?
Thank you. I've been wondering for a long time and figure he had a baby or something.It's for his little daughter
”In Portugal, when I was playing, and I started my second season in Sporting, my daughter was growing up, you know,"
“Sometimes, me and my wife, we talk with her and she started doing like this [puts his fingers in his ears] after she started doing this. And so, I picked this to celebrate the goals for her."
Dan James 6 in 9 but the performances are gets better.I was happy to see Dan James start the game because I think he's worked hard to bring his game back up, and he's clearly working harder than some of his team mates. Martial is breaking my heart, just doesn't seem to care.
Maguire was lucky not to gice a penalty away. Rashford needs to improve his diving... : )
I am always glad when a players scores, but with James I always feel delighted for him. Think it is because he is so little.Job done. Didnt think Newcastle could keep it going for much longer in the second half. Wish we would stop conceding stupid goals.
Martial needs to cop the feck on. Glad too see James having a good game and scoring again, you can tell it always means loads to him.
Great to see Shoretire making his debut, I wonder is his number 74 the highest a player has had for us in the league?
Because James was no threat at all (cue the but he scored comments) until a lucky deflection left him 8 yards one on one
But let's be fair to both - totally different situations against totally different teams. We'd already put the two-game series away with RS when Diallo came on. Newcastle is fighting league relegation, where goal difference may be precious, so Shoretire was under the gun as soon as he came on. Welcome to the PL!Please get me right: I am very happy he came on, and in general supportive of playing youth. At the same time, we need to keep our feet on the ground: contrary to Diallo debut midweek, Shola didn’t impress much (although I do agree 4 minutes is not a lot of time).
P.S. where is Shoretire thread? One in youth section doesn’t count as he is now officially a First team player
He shouldn’t be playing RW, but as for the last forever years we don’t have a natural right winger, his crossing was hit and miss, but if you have a striker (Martial) who refuses to make runs in the box, even the best cross won’t be put in the net.Because James was no threat at all (cue the but he scored comments) until a lucky deflection left him 8 yards one on one
He’s a smaller weaker less productive Valencia, runs down blind dead ends and can’t cross past the first man
Only a lie if you lack the ability to discern hyperbole.Please don’t tell lies. It makes sensible discussions on here impossible.
Blimey were we watching the same game or am i missing the sarcasmSuperb second half performance. Matic immaculate MOTM. Excellent performances from Rashford, Bruno (surprise, surprise!), Shaw, and James.
Did what we needed to do. Very happy. Game management was exceptional after a Thursday away trip in the EL.
No, not sarcasm. I guess I just operate with a greater deal of realism when assessing a performance that came on the back of an away trip in the EL on a thursday night. Potential banana skin for us today, especially with tired legs, and so much rotation. But aside from a ten minute spell, we were really comfortable. Newcastle's goal came from a set piece but they barely threatened other than that. We had 72% possession and from the 55th minute onwards, absolutely dominated.Blimey were we watching the same game or am i missing the sarcasm
I wasn’t mentioning martial but I’d agree negative rating would be appropriateHe shouldn’t be playing RW, but as for the last forever years we don’t have a natural right winger, his crossing was hit and miss, but if you have a striker (Martial) who refuses to make runs in the box, even the best cross won’t be put in the net.
If James had a bad game, Martial must have a negative rating today.
I think we have played significantly worse, this season. Re Tottenham, however we fought thru it. James has had a nice run, which gives us some options down the right side. We still struggle nightly when pressed.Worst performance of the season but somehow we won the game.
Think it’s because most of us are used to seeing intelligent players that work hard for the clubThe Caf is such a sad place. So much negativity. Even when we win easily and have 70% possession, most people are posting negative crap.
so telling that the post match comments are 6 pages in a win and 19 in a loss...
Please see his pass Thursday night. He has some passing issues at times, but why is everyone so over the top?Martial should never start a game again.
Great to see Shola.
Marcus took his goal well and shows why comparisons to Tony are ludicrous.
Bruno quiet but G+A.
Dan James good goal.
Fred cannot pass or shoot.
Shaw excellent again.
Maguire and Lindelof make football look hard.
We have improved points and consistency wise I will give you that, however our performances in the supposed big six games have been terrible. One of the main reasons for that is because we lack CB leadership, mobile DM good on the ball and a proper RW too. The top teams just know how to shut down Bruno like we used to see with Pogba in these games.Seriously, just be happy we won. In fact you should be happier when we win like that, cause that's been missing in recent years. Regards to the direction we're going, I'm not sure what you're on about here? We have clearly improved and you really can't say otherwise.
