    Statisticians among you

    Was thinking about something earlier. So if the stats guys can check ?

    When was the last time we played a 3 man central midfield without the two ''proverbial wingers'' - Just a thought because I think we can beat Reading with our normal system but Newcastle might be the time to shut up shop ?

      Nah.Maybe Newcastle should think about shutting up shop?

      Nah

      They over ran the midfield up there in the 1st half. We would have come back at them in the 2nd half if Baldock hadn't been sent off but this time it's all about playing the percentages.

      really don't think we have any need to shut up shop against Newcastle. teams that have attacked them and had less than us have been rewarded. I was up at st james in 1st game their tactics we good but we never played great. would've give them a better run for the money with 11 on the pitch though. am I right in thinking this was duffy's debut too? if so needed to build the defensive partnership

      We are a much better team than we were when we played them last. Don't forget, it took two set pieces to undo us. I just don't think we have anything to fear. Especially being at home

      When was the last time we played a 3 man central midfield without the two ''proverbial wingers'' -
      23/2/1924 at home to Man city in the last 16 of the FA Cup.

      We lost 5-1.

      We should stick to the "proverbial wingers". The stats don't lie.

      No. We need to show Newcastle who's boss in this division, not run scared and 'shut up shop'

      I would stick someone on Shelvey, as he's nothing without space and (will likely lose his head and get sent off) then attack as they are not as good as us.

      If our team cannot get up for this, they shouldn't be playing.

      Out of possession that will undoubtedly be Sam Baldocks job.
      Let's give them something to worry about first though. Also the Amex should be absolutely rocking for this one.

      I'd bring back Kayal against Shelvey, wait for the former Hills Have Eyes loon to go mentalist or (more probably) racist and earn himself another six game ban.
