We donâ€™t do this very often, but we just have to quote the first two paragraphs of Luke Edward’s match report on the Newcastle game against Fulham.
Sam Allardyce – beauty in the ugliness and pride in the clean sheet
We think he hits the nail right on the head, and not without a little humor.
Here is Lukeâ€™s Newcastle Journal report on Saturdayâ€™s game and here are the first two paragraphs of his report.
“It was scrappy, disjointed, tight and tedious. It was, for anyone who stumbled across it as a neutral, an ugly and unattractive spectacle with all the appeal of EastEndersâ€™ Pat Butcher wearing nothing more than fishnet stockings.”
“But for Sam Allardyce and Newcastle United there was beauty in the ugliness, pride in the clean sheet and, above all else, immense satisfaction at a result which gave the Magpies back-to-back home and away wins for the first time this season.”
That’s good work Luke â€“ we had to have a laugh at that this morning , but you are so right, unfortunately.Â Â Â 🙁
