2-0 up at half time against a side who had just two points and 3 goals on their away travels all season. Add to that the Newcastle United defense had played brilliantly in the previous two games and hadn’t conceded a goal.
A win for Newcastle United? You would have thought so, wouldn’t you.
Newcastle fans – let down by players again today
But we’ve supported Newcastle for too long to take anything for granted with the team, and it’s interesting in our half time summary we said:
2-0 up and with our defense looking decent we should be able to hold on, but you never know.
And no holding back like we did against WBA, and nearly lost all 3 points several weeks back, after also leading 2-0.
Well the lads didn’t read the report at half time obviously, and the lads proceeded to do the same thing they did against WBA and give up the initiative to the opposition.
Only this afternoon, after being 2-0 up at half time, we conceded two goals and lost another 2 valuable points. At least against WBA we hung on to win 2-1.
We’ve been throwing too many points away with gay abandon, against the poorer sides in the league, and if we continue to do that, we’ll stay in relegation trouble, and deserve to be there too.
We don’t seem to learn from our mistakes, and this draw was really hard to take for the fans of Newcastle, after it looked all over that we had the 3 points, and it was how many we would win the game by. How wrong can you be.
The Portsmouth game can’t come too quickly enough.
