There were a number of Newcastle fans angry at the capitulation against Fulham on Saturday afternoon.
Yohan Cabaye – in action on Saturday – has aplogized
That much is clear from the reaction of both myself and my son Neil after the game (and during the game) , which completely ruined the weekend.
I had lunch with my son yesterday afternoon and he couldn’t even watch the whole game during that destruction in the final 45 minutes, of what was a very good Newcastle side in that first half.
And I could hear my wife Madeline again talking about “don’t take it all so seriously.”
She just doesn’t understand. 😀
We don’t mind the side being beaten, but Newcastle were their own worst enemies in that second half, and we were wondering when an apology would come.
And in fact young Danny Guthrie immediately after the game acted like he had been caught with his hand in the cookie jar, and was completely apologetic for the capitulation.
Danny was very upset after the game, and you could see it in his face and in his words.
And Danny Guthrie was the one who scored that wonderful goal to put us 1-0 up just before half time – his second goal of the season – and Ben Arfa scored his third goal in 6 games just before the end – but they are getting very little credit for that after the game.
French International Yohan Cabaye has issued an apology to the Newcastle fans following the total capitulation at Craven Cottage:
“I apologise to them. I don’t know what to say, it’s difficult for us.” “It was a very bad afternoon for us. It was like there were two games in 90 minutes.”
“In the first half we played very well and in the second, we played very badly and were very poor with and without the ball.”
“I don’t know why, but maybe we thought the game was won at half-time.” “In the end we lost 5-2 and it was very, very bad.”
“We are still very disappointed with ourselves.” “We just have to forget Fulham now and look forward – as long as we learn from it.”
“We have the FA Cup next weekend at Brighton and this for us is a massive objective.” “We have to be ready for the game, we just need to learn from the defeat and keep working at it.”
“I don’t know quite what happened.” “The only thing I do know is that we didn’t play with the same spirit in the second half.”
“We have to learn from that second half. We have to work to improve, we can’t play like we did in the second half ever again.”
There’ss come a time – andit will be very soon believe me – when we have to move on from the Fulham debacle.
But we’d like the players to make up for the disaster on the field of play and in our next three games we play Brighton, Blackburn and Aston Villa, and lal those games are winnable – if we play like we did int he first half on Saturday.
We looked terrific and Fulham were completely dominated.
We’d like to see the lads win their next three games, and all will be forgiven and forgotten. 😀
Howay The Lads!!
