This week’s chalkboard analysis can be found at FourFourTwo here. Meanwhile, here’s a cheeky chalkboard that didn’t make the article:
I noted last week how Newcastle’s enforced reshuffle in defence caused them problems in the air, particularly from set pieces. Swansea were never going to test that aspect of their play this week, but I was struck with a) how little a threat Swansea posed, and b) how inaccurate Newcastle’s shooting was. Demba Ba registered two shots on target from his eight attempts and had a further two blocked, but what were the rest of the team up to?
