Another Defeat By Toffees Leaves Magpies In Sticky Situation

If the arrival of 4 new faces in the transfer window had raised our spirits just a touch it was almost inevitable that those would be brought crashing back down the minute we stepped back onto the field.Steve McClaren keeps talking about getting reactions from his team but after a dismal defeat at Watford in the game previous there was nothing in the performance on Wednesday night that could be seen in any way as a positive reaction.We were pretty much outplayed and outfought from start to finish and although 2 of the 3 Everton goals were penalties in the last 5 minutes or so which may make it look like we were unlucky that was not the case and had it not been for the once again impressive Rob Elliot then the game could have been over as a contest a lot earlier.Once again there was plenty of talk and criticism from fans about the managers tactics and team selection. Admitedly I didn’t agree with the dropping of Mitrovic especially when it wasn’t even part of a plan to give Doubmia his debut but at the same time it was still a decent 11 that we put out but once again the players simply are not performing to anywhere near the standard they should be.Not for one minute saying the manager is blameless in all of this but I do think a lot of the focus always seem to fall on him when it is the players who are simply not doing their jobs or most of the time not looking like they care about our current position one bit.Not only does a 3-0 defeat see us continue to be marooned in the bottom 3 but even more worryingly days after letting the transfer window shut without bringing in any defensive reinforcements we saw Mbemba and Dummett go off injured and then Lascelles get a red card in injury time conceding the 2nd penalty.That now potentially leaves us short for what now becomes one of those must win games at home to West Brom on Saturday.What I will say about Wednesday’s game is whilst I know with Everton’s recent form a result was maybe possible I didn’t think we had much chance of coming away with anything in that one.

West Brom Home Preview 15/16

To be honest I have lost count of the number of Newcastle games over the last couple of years I have called must win games but once again tomorrow’s home game against West Brom definitely falls into that catagory given recent results of both us and other teams around us in the relegation scrap.Anything other than a win tomorrow would for me leave us in desparate desparate trouble and so far this season I have been someone that despite our lowly position has been quite confident that results would come to get us out of there but quite frankly the games are running out.The last thing we needed going into a game of this magnitude was an injury crisis but as usual that is what has happened with us losing 3 defenders in the hammering at Everton to injury and suspensions.The most worrying one is the ankle injury to Mbemba which is rumoured likely to keep him out of action for a month. With Dummett also injured and Lascelles suspended after his stupid red then it is likely we will see Steven Taylor ushered back into action.I have no problems with that as such as I think when fit and on his day he is a more than capable defender but it is a big ask to just throw him straight back in after so long out but needs must.With Dummett out and Colback also still struggling then unsurprisingly left back is a problem area. Mbabu is apparently available again but again with him there are fitness question marks so it will be interesting to see who our defence consists of come 3pm tomorrow.The manager also has decisions to make at the other end of the pitch after another blank was drawn on Wednesday.

Everton vs. Newcastle United: Tactical Analysis

The tactical wrinkles from Everton’s first straightforward league win in months include Tom Cleverley’s inclusion on the left, the absence of Leighton Baines, and the defensive value of possession. Everton, after a little over a month, finally picked up another league win this weekend. It wasn’t perfect, and it was at home against a relegation threatened Newcastle United side, but it was a win

The £13.5m addition to kick-start Everton’s dwindling season

Although Roberto Martinez’s outfit Toffees outfit weren’t quite expected to set the Premier League alight in triumphant style this season, Everton have nonetheless proven somewhat of a disappointment throughout the campaign so far. The team currently reside in the bottom half of the table without any signs of immediate improvement. Roberto Martinez’s starting XI looks […]
