    Mbemba

    Has he disappeared from the face of the earth?

    I'm not complaining about the current state our starting defence at all, just wonder what's happened to him. He's a good defender IMO, would get into a lot of sides in this league.

    Our back line has gelled so well it's difficult for him to force his way in. I agree, generally he's been a good player for the team

    Would keep him.

    I've always had an idea to have him as a holding DM. You wouldn't to have to get past him to them get crunched by Lascelles.

    Plus, as sure as night follows day, we will have a CB injury crisis next season so I'd keep him. Dummett still fills me with dread at LB. And Yedlin is a makeshift RB, isn't he....

    There are bigger holes to fill than looking to make one and find ourselves having to fill it by getting rid of him.





    ....Bench.

    I'd keep him as well.

    However, i suspect he'll be sold in summer.

    I have a feeling he'll be moving on, assuming we don't lose Lascelles or Lejeune.
    I always liked Mbemba but his chances have been severely limited and I can't see him wanting to sit out another season.

    You win some you lose some and soldier on.

    Whatís that about Dummett? You must be joking arenít you? Since he came back into the team the back line is much more solid. He never gets Ďruní by any winger, is an excellent tackler, is good on the air and is clearly one of Rafaís first names on the team sheet. Oh and heís one of us. Aye he ainít great going forward but that isnít his job - bit like saying Gayle is crap at defending.

    The lad has surprised a lot of Newcastle fans this season who questioned him, and heís now getting the plaudits he deserves. Listen to John Anderson on radio Newcastle and hear what he thinks of him. The lad is a quality defender, aye he ainít Maldini (how many have been), but there isnít a left back in the prem I would have ahead of him in our shirt.

    Dummett, in fairness, has come on massively this season.

    Mbemba is a good defender but there's a rabbit off with him and Rafa and he'll be off.
