Jamaal Lascelles sends bold message to NUFC fans – Some people will really struggle with this..

Jamaal Lascelles has insisted that there’s ‘nothing to panic about’ following our struggling start to the campaign, insisting that we’ve played five of the top six, got two draws on the road and been ‘miles’ better than Brighton on Saturday.

Considering we’re bottom of the table, without a win in nine games and enduring our worst start to a Premier League season since 1898, you can see why NUFC fans are panicking – it’s been a worrying start.

Nevertheless, Lascelles seems in a defiant mood – recalling that Crystal Palace started just as poorly last season but finished well clear of danger come May.

Here’s what he’s had to say today, suggesting there’s plenty positives to take and no need to panic:

“Crystal Palace had an awful start & finished well. There’s nothing to panic about. We’ve played five or six of the top teams, we got a draw at Cardiff & Palace & I thought we were miles the better team against Brighton. There are definitely positives & there’s no need to panic.”

“I’ve not had to remind anybody about that (the nine-game winless run last season). Everyone knows. Halfway through the season we were in the bottom three, we turned it around and finished 10th,”

The skipper is clearly looking at things with a glass half full approach, however it’s hard to agree that there is nothing at all to panic about. We didn’t score in ANY of our games against Cardiff, Palace, Leicester and Brighton and we’re struggling at both ends of the pitch.

That being said, we did have a nine-game winless run last season and we finished 10th as he says, so let’s hope Rafa and the players can turn it around once again.

Do you agree with Lascelles? Are you panicking?

  1. so 2 points out of 9 against the lesser teams then or 2 out 12 if we include Leicester

    last year beat chelsea at home and arsenal this year neither

    yep things are looking good

    never have 3 points been needed at the weekend more than before as we will be cut off otherwise and then there will def be no spending in Jan

    this lies purely at ashleys door and his mate charnley who gets off the hook time after time

    my worry we have an owner who doesn’t care
    a chief exec whos quite happy
    a manager who is fed up of it all
    and I fear fans who are losing interest until the cretin of an owner leaves

    we couldn’t even be bothered as a crowd to get decent Ashley chant going at the weekend with more than half the crowd apparently not bothered to stand up or as Ashley says you see half the crowd like me


  2. Sorry Jamaal mate you’re living in cloud cuckoo land , think you’re still living in the Kiss arse PIZZA trip Arsehole ASHLEY took you on with the titbit of a free holiday thrown in.
    None of you have performed with any true conviction for the Extremely large wedge you’re paid week on week.
    I have been a staunch supporter of RAFA’S but he needs to blood the young lads we have coming through instead of sticking with guy’s who are not performing week after week.
