We were disappointed the lads dropped those two pointss in the last couple of minutes of extra time against Sunderland on Sunday.
Alan Pardew – shown with Steve Stone
And it looks like manager Alan Pardew has not forgotten about it either, as it seems so unjust that Sunderland took a point from a game in which they were completely outplayed (again), in that second half.
But that’s life we suppose – although we are hardly happy about it – in fact it sucks.
As usual though, Alan Pardew is now only interested in the next game, which is all that really matters, and it’s Saturday afternoon against Spurs, who are surely due to be well beaten soon by some team – aren’t they?
This is what Alan said to the Evening Chronicle today:
“I’m not going to get away from the fact we conceded a last minute goal and we dropped points.”
“But we are due a bit of fortune ourselves and hopefully that can come against Tottenham. We went to Stevenage and lost and nothing went for us.”
“We conceded in the dying stages at Sunderland and didn’t deserve it.” “We are due a break. On Saturday we might get it.”
“I’m very pleased with the way we came back at Sunderland from Stevenage without key players we put in a great performance.”
Maybe it means that Shola will score the only goal of the game, in the very last minute of injury time on Saturday – that would balance things out a little.
And just imagine the celebrations that would get from the Newcastle United fans – we’d even have to reach for those blood pressure pills!
Howay The Lads!!
