Wasn't expecting that result tonight.
Wasn't good enough on the night.
Just one point
Why does Arteta risk Saka and Martinelli when we are 3-0 and the game is lost.

Very poor Bill

Such a strange decision to bring them on, why would you?

We need to be on it Saturday that’s for sure.

{Ed014's Note - I said in the chat I really hoped he wouldn’t use them but thankfully no injuries.

Newcastle at 3up have brought on all their best players when the defo haven’t need too.

Poor from the off really. Very little control or movement in the final third.

It was 'just' the B team but there are solid first team players in there. If Odegaard is out I think Trossard needs to play in the middle or it creates a giant vacuum. Vieira was particularly weak and Havertz killed every attack that came his way.

{Ed014's Note - can’t argue with that wire

Quantum particles both exist and don't exist at the same time Bill mate, don't blow your mind trying to understand it just accept its true.

Its the same with Arteta and some of his decision, you need a PhD in the unfathomable to get your head round it.

No clue why we keep pointlessly risking Ode and Saka.

Vieira just doesn’t cut it for me, he isn’t forceful to play in the PL.

I think Ode was given 10 min at the end as he has been carrying a knock, so Arteta wants to see if he was ok.

But don't get the other 2.

at the same time, as they were on the bench, if he didn't bring them on we would all be sat here saying why didn't he try and affect the game.

I'm with you on Vieria Oxford, i'm not sure the prem is the place for him, perhaps Spain would be the best place, anyone know why ESR wasn't playing?

{Ed014's Note - he had picked up a muscle injury, will be out for a while ?‍♂️

Such a shame for ESR, just getting g back in the field.

Real shame Sally - like ESR’s energy and direct style of play which we lack at times.

Yeah, fair point Oxford, my choice of words there was poor haha. you didn't say the best player.

I think possibly i just don't rate Emi as highly as some other people so I always felt like it was the right choice, I also don't like the way he comes across so I am glad he is not at the club, so that might also have a factor for me.
