    Newcastle's squad is ridiculous. I've got £50 on them beating Reading's total of 106 points.
    Consistency is an issue.
    Personally I'd like to see Brentford do well. They've a lovely style of football.

    Think you're owed a top 6 finish after all these years but I've read about all your departures and am sort of regretting that prediction already
    Last season was the best chance we will have for a while, and we blew it in spectacular fashion. Mowbray has offloaded 3 very good midfielders for L1, in addition to losing Murphy and Maddison. There is also no adequate replacement for Armstrong and Aaron Martin was offloaded for no good reason either. Think it will be mid-table or lower to be honest.

    Fans of Norwich, Villa, and a few other clubs mist be hoping its not the last time Newcastle lose this season. Good wins for the two East Anglian clubs and in the fourth division an away point for the Bees at Cambridge.

    Anyone know any clubs after Nahki Wells? I heard Fulham and a few others have an interest

    Don't think Lescott will solve the problem either. Really looking forward to our game against Sheffield Wednesday.

    It's going to be very interesting to see how Villa respond this weekend. Lose and the pressure will be heaped on Di Matteo.

    Which would be farcical seeing how the season has barely started.

    Agreed, but that's modern football, unfortunately.

    A win for the Rams tonight. After the defeat at the weekend any win will do!

    First tonight was an absolute rocket, he's genuinely such a class player. Our other two league goals he's been involved too - won a penalty and hit the bar to allow the ball to be headed in

    Makes you think where he'd be right now if it wasn't for that court case

    Before I go and lump on Shane Duffy for top-scorer - can you win it for scoring loads of own goals? 3 in two games.

    Edit: And now a red card as well. What a week.

    Hi Midlander,

    I started with optimism for this season too but the squad is quite bare. I went to the only win of the season, which was an entertaining game. Jones was brilliant and Reid will be useful. Midfield looks quite weak without Fleck and Thompson. We need a top 6 finish but a mid table is likely.

    Reda has to offered a contract, if he is fit with so many young players, all the experience we can get must be welcome but I don't think Mowbray rates him.

    I suppose being let off for rape has that effect on a player.

    The feedback from those who have been to games is that our players seem petrified about shooting. This is the kind of guff that plagued us under Pressley and it worries me to be relying on a creaky defence to get results. Still I will reserve judgment for now though there has to be an improvement.
