For the second home game in a row Newcastle couldn’t hold a 1-0 lead, and went down to Reading, who are now only two points behind Newcastle, and this was a shock result and puts Newcastle deep into relegation trouble.
And Alan Pardew will take some criticism for substituting some of our better players, as he was holding out for a win, and that never works – and it didn’t this afternoon.
If we cannot beat a side at home who are only one of four teams below us in the league – after being 1-0 up – then who can we beat – and we now think Alan Pardew is under severe pressure at Newcastle, with the emphasis on severe.
This was probably Newcastle’s worst result of the season, and we don’t think Mike Ashley is going to stand by and see the team relegated for the second time in four years.
Bow all we need is t lose Colo on Monday.
You talk about doom and gloom – this was simply a terrible and unacceptable result.
