Well, now that Bassong is injured we look fucked. Turner was shocking on the opening day when we lost 5-0 at Fulham and we have been solid ever since then until now. The cart horse comes on and makes a stupid mistake for Ba's goal by playing him onside, then loses him again later on only for Ba to miscontrol in a great position.
We've played some good football but look completely toothless in the final third. Morison looks short of confidence and isn't getting in the box enough as the lone striker. It's shame that Holt is going through his annual pre/early season binge eating form where he can't do anything apart from fall over and try to win free kicks, because it means we have nothing up top. Hopefully Hughton dropping him will give him a kick up the (lard) arse. At least Wessi looks class.
Newcastle have looked very ordinary in build up play but are incredibly dangerous upfront, almost the complete opposite of us. Thank fuck Cisse missed that Pen otherwise it would have been game over for us, seeing as we struggle to score even one goal a game at the moment.
