Wed Game Complacency

I really hope the team dont go about thinking on Wed Evening at home this is going to be a really Easy game against Scunthorpe 3rd Bottom cause we will get turned over..

Why do Teams like Ourself think cause there 3rd Bottom there going to win easy and take there foot off the gas..

Hence myself saying Complacency Just hope its all spelt out to them doing fuck all and sit back dont try to walk it into the net get at them cause for 1.

We are at home and 2. there is only 4 points from WBA and if they win against Barnsley it will be alot closer..

3rd Bottom or not we got no given right to win this and got to fight for it..

Too true.

We need to take the same mentality into this game as we have all of our home games so far. The makeshift back four is a bit concerning, but we should surely have enough at the top of the park to turn them over.

In all fairness that has not happened in any home game so far. Hughton will have the lads up for it.

Ditto

and to be fair, no team in this league makes it easy for Newcastle, either home or away.

Well we have only lost four games. I was at the game yesterday and there was no lack of heart or commitment from the lads.

Either that, or they'll get another penalty when they were fouled by the halfway line.

When teams come to SJP they look scared.

At home, they look determined to cause an upset.

That's the main difference.

And I think the poor performance at Boro will make sure we don't get too complacent anyway.

Many studies have been made as to why teams do worse away from home, from unfamilarity with surroundings to simple expectation. In truth it should not matter as much as it does, its a football pitch with 22 players, and players often say crowd noise affects them little when they are actually playing.

However I think your explanation Lucian is the best I have heard and is nearer the truth than all the researchers could achieve - the players can't be arsed. They know they won't have the home crowd on their back if they underperform so they fanny about more.
