Weird to use Mbiwa at DM when you have trouble keeping the ball out of your net.
I guess they're bringing up slowly.
Debuchy I'm not surprised I wrote that much to Shameus (tendency to make stupid challenges) though PM.

Did Gouffran play striker or on the wings?
Asked about his expectations for the new signings, Pardew stated that he believes defenders need time to learn their place in the system, especially on set plays. (I'd suspect he also considered Steven Taylor to be a good match up with Benteke). Attackers, he opined, can be thrown in more or less straight away because they "play on instinct".

He described Haidara as "young and nervous", one for the future rather than the remainder of this season, but didn't exclude the possibility of him playing. The strong implication was that he is Santon's backup and in truth Haidara has few specialist LBs for competition.
