Newcastle Subs Squidward And Two Defenders – Strength In Depth?

7 years ago

I didn’t think Newcastle were terrible but what was going on with the Newcastle subs?

I know Hatem Ben Arfa hadn’t travelled due to claims he is ill and I know Cisse pulled out late with a heel injury but…two defenders and Squidward when we are getting beat!

I’m not saying they are the greatest players in the world but surely Anita and Sammy Ameobi should have been put on if they are supposed to be offensive players who can help get us back in the game?

Reality is though that tonight showed the limitations of our squad going forward, one or two missing and we have no option but to go with what we’ve got or…’rely’ on Squidward.

The past month showed that as long as we didn’t get injuries/suspensions then we should do ok, tonight though we saw what a fragile situation we have yet again, a decent first eleven who will do decent a lot of the time but when we need to change things?

Whatever the question is, the answer is not Squidward!
