    Probably his bet yet, against decent opposition too. They didn't hold back Villa, I recall Royal getting cleaned out by one 50/50 tackle. Considering his slender frame, he's no pussy.

    Add in that they are desperate for a win and can't seem to buy one we all know how this ends.

    Didn't they say that players could isolate at the Lodge and come out once per day to train with teammates or play matches? I.e. anyone can play

    I was sure he was going off
    Fair play to him though
    He took several wacks and gave some back too

    They did, but they (Br and Arg) play around 1am on Friday morning UK time so even if they board a flight at say 5am/6am UK time Friday, then they dont get to the Lodge til very late Friday night (flight time of 14 hrs) and will be knackered from the match and flying. Jet lag isnt huge but difficult to see that they are in a condition to start a PL match on Sunday afternoon, particularly when we have viable alternatives who didnt play 2 days before on the other side of the world

    Brazil had a good game against Uruguay. Royal started.

    Just seen the score
    Brazil’s squad looks as poor as it ever has IMO
    David Luiz still in it

    Thought he was magnificent against Villa but probably out poorest player today. I rate him but he's been a mixed bag so far. Guess that's to be expected to an extent while he adjusts to England and the Premier League.

    Needs to get used to the league. But he looks like a player. We need to be giving Lusala a loan so that next season he can be his understudy. Then the right back position is settled for a bit.

    Not as good today but a couple of times he was left isolated by Moura against 2-3 Newcastle players. Still think he will be a very solid RB

    He picked a few nice passes when we outplayed their press a couple of times. Romero was so good in that, totally composed.

    Sure, not his best game but let’s not forget he was in Brazil playing on Friday so it was a damn good effort to put in the 90 minutes….

    I didnt think he was that bad yesterday. There's a lot of potential there I think and only 22

    With him and Tanganga, I dont think we need to be looking for a RB for a couple years at least, or until we start using Tanganga at CB

    Agree but Im not that keen with Tanganga as RB, full backs are such an important area for attacking and he just isn’t mobile enough for me in an attacking sense. I get the argument about him being there against the big boys because of his defensive capabilities but I’d prefer we had another RB in the mould of Royal who gets up and down the wing well and use Tanganga as CB….

    He started of yesterday with a couple of mistakes but he got better as the game went on.Promising player for me.

    Really shaky start, but some explanations for that with the internationals and little time to prepare. Got better, but struggled physically with Almiron. Definitely promising and will hopefully improve as he continues to settle in.

    As you say he was playing in Brazil on Friday and with the plane journeys he was probably knackered, he also has to adjust to a much faster league but the signs so far are promising.

    He was up against Joelinton, who is physically a Centre Forward and he competed well. One of the things I like about Royal is that he is up for the battle and physical challenge….
