    Great result ,But poor second half we were just too deep .
    Credit to Rafa it worked but wasn,t pretty Everyone (DIame excepted ) put in a shift .
    Huddersfield played some good stuff to be fair and a couple of their players are not bad but in the end Goals win games . HWTL bring on Reading

    A 3-1 win despite only having 24% possession and effectively playing with 9 men for most of the game, Colback and Diame were terrible. Colback did his usual pick up a cheap booking and then spend the rest of the game not able to make tackles, Diame picked up the ball, ran with it, gave it away cheaply and put us under pressure.

    A word of praise for the captain, not my favourite player but tonight he defended well. My man of the match, as hard as Ritchie worked, would have been Clark.

    • Tay Da Trang

      Clark has been one of the best signings of the season. I haven’t seen him have a bad game and can’t believe Villa let him go.

  • hetonmag

    Look we had a hell of a tough game on Tues night, their player’s had a week off so I am going to congratulate everyone of them for putting a real good shift in tonight well done.

    • Steesh

      Does their FA cup game at Man City not count?

      • alex carr

        9 changes for that game so they would be fresh to get beat im this one hardly counts matey.

  • Scottpaige

    Took our chances that’s all that matters. Hats off to them

  • Carlo Ancelotti

    great game by everyone, well nearly those ratings have Mo Diame on 5.5 which is 5 to many

    • steve

      I think he’s pretty awful but he was our best player tonight.

      • Wor Lass

        Completely agree!

  • Wor Lass

    There`s a fair bit of criticism of Diame here. It`s funny how different people can watch the same game and come to completely different conclusions. I thought he was excellent last night. He didn`t do a great deal going forward but the team was set up to concede posession and defend deep – Murph, Ritchie and Diame were our first line of defence and were magnificent. Diame put a real shift in and was responsible time and again for breaking down their play and forcing them to play back. It goes against the grain for us to appreciate that type of play because we all loved the “we`ll score one more than you” days and also we don`t expect a Toon team to be able to do that without messing up at the last gasp. Well, they didn`t mess up last night but I suppose some people just have to have something to moan about.

    • Rogger_frogger

      Agreed

    • Paul Patterson

      I agree with the sentiments but I do feel Diame was poor against Huddersfield.

      However, I also said during the game that we are top of the table and most of the time this season we have played with Gayle up top with Diame behind him, so he must have an effect.

  • Peter Robson

    I get the feeling that if a dog ran onto the pitch, the voters would still give it a higher score than Colback and Diame (sometimes Dummett too).
    All three of them have set tasks, and if you watch them week in week out you´d notice it too.
    They rarely get the chance for glory and praise, but if Rafa thinks they´re doing a good job then why can´t the whiners and moaners either get behind them or leave them in peace to get on with their job.
    In case you´re interested, their job is to get us promoted at the first attempt !!

    My Mam always said “if you can´t find something nice to say, say nowt”.

    Get behind the team, all of them, not just the ones who grab the glory !!!

    In Rafa we Trust

    • hetonmag

      Well said Peter.

    • Geordiegiants

      Couldn’t agree more, Colback and dummettt are not the most technically gifted, but both do a sterling job in the roles they are given. Mohamed is a different kettle of fish in my eyes, I think he makes Shola look like usain bolt personally. Very similar to Sissoko, he has a bit of something, but just not enough of it.

      • Damon Horner

        I personally think Diame’s job is to stop the possession becoming attacks and he has done a good enough job there for me.

        • Geordiegiants

          His job is supposed to be as creator / link up. He may well break up play in midfield with his lumbersom running and lunging, but anyone could do that.

          • Damon Horner

            Normally you’d expect that from a 10 but he is there for his energy and physique surely. His record doesn’t suggest he is a prominent scorer or creator.

            Off the ball I think he is meant to close them down (not sure there are many more capable which shows why he is rarely dropped) and it is intended to affect their build up from source, imagine if a Diame played against us? Shelvey would hate it,

            On the ball he can drive with the ball at his feet and get us up the pitch, he generally hasn’t been the best passer throughout his career.

  • Shadsdad

    Superb “backs to the wall” all round performance. 6 points away against 2nd & 3rd.What’s not to like!

  • Trevor Reaveley

    Surely Diame can’t continue with his “smoke and mirrors” act forever more.
    He really is a headless chicken most of the time. Commitment isn’t there, when he loses the ball there’s no trying to get in back, and don’t mention his attempts at heading the ball.
    Just another Sissoko waste of space to me (alright, maybe that last bit is a bit too harsh, but you know what I mean!).
