Newcastle caretaker manager Chris Hughton has admitted that Blackpool deserved their win last night, to inflict a first Championship defeat on Newcastle United this season.
Hughton – Blackpool deserved their win
Chris told Sky Sports after the game:
“I am bitterly disappointed, Blackpool were better than us in every department, especially in the first half.”
“We need to regroup quickly as we have another big game at the weekend against Plymouth at St James’ Park.”
“I thought we came into the game a lot more strongly after the break and we finished quite well and were perhaps unlucky not to have grabbed an equalizer”
“But over the course of 90 minutes we were not the better side on the night.”
Another reason we like Chris is he’s dead honest, and that’s probably a fair summary he gives of the game.
He’s not like some managers, who blame everything and the kitchen sink when they lose.
It’s just a pity the lads couldn’t have come back in the last 25 minutes, after Blackpool had gone ahead.
It’s a great result for Blackpool though , no doubt about that, and we congratulate them for a great win.
It should make their season – but wait until we meet them at St. James’ Park on Saturday 10th April – it’s already on our calendar!
However, the congratulations to the Tangerines is as far as it goes, we don’t want to say that too many times this season! 😀
But it was not to be last night, but also shows we must be able to score a lot more goals, since the rest of the team is quite decent.
