Here’s what Alan Pardew thought of the second half performance this afternoon at Craven Cottage.
Here’s Alan Pardew’s interview with the BBC after the game and Alan says he was disappointed with the seocnd half collapse and how the team seemed to switch off in that second half.
Tell us about it.
It’s surprising given that Newcastle looked so dominant and much the better side in the first half.
But Pardew and the coaches need to sort out just exactly what happened today, and if they have to watch the video again and again of those last 45 minutes so be it.
But they must try to understand exactly what happened.
And then never let it happen again.
We look to Newcastle to make up for this defeat with a top performance against Blackburn Rovers a week on Wednesday.
That’s only what the Newcastle fans deserve who had to watch that second half today – it was so painful to watch.
And we felt sorry for those loyal fans who traveled to London to support the lads this afternoon.
But it’s only one game and hopefully the team will learn from their complete collapse in the second half today.
