Collectively we have defended well but individually it is so sloppy. 

The tactic is to still be in the game by the 70th minute then go for it so 1-0 doesn't change that.

25 minute to go until we attack :ph34r:

Job done from us but the last 20 minutes of this game has been so tedious. The game has been over since the first goal because  Newcastle have shown absolutely zero intent to try and get anything from this game. Quite embarrassing really.

Not really embarrassed, this is the Premier League these days. The tactic was to attack if we were still in the game in the last 20 minutes because at Man Utd and Chelsea we attacked from the off took the lead and got dicked. We weren't in the game at the desired point so we didn't gamble. 

Goal difference could be worth an extra point at the end of the season. We have one of the best goal differences down the bottom (the best before kick off).

Rafa did his part. The players didn't really do theirs. Some very sloppy performances, particularly on the ball. To get anything everyone has to be on top of their game.

Looks like the ref we had in our game and the ref in this game went to the same school. That tackle on Salah by Hayden was blatant as fuck. How the officials have missed this is mind blowing.

Just watched the highlights and thought we had more chances? I can't be sure because I didn't watch the whole game. One thing I am happy about is that Sadio is finding his feet again and I think it couldn't have come at a better time for us.
