Quote of the day

"Newcastle is perfect for me."

The words of arguably our most consistent performer of the season, Cheik Tiote, speaking to the Guardian ahead of Sunday's derby match (report to follow).

If he continues to perform at or above his current level, and in particular his ability to win and keep possession in a congested midfield, the feeling will be mutual for a long time to come.

I actually didn't think he was quite at his best yesterday, or at least not early on when the game was tight. He's been adept at turning into and then away from trouble without giving away possession in other games, but on more than a couple of occasions he was pickpocketed by the Mackems. Perhaps a warning that sometimes playing it simply is the best option.
