After what was simply unbelievable – the most inept and pitiful performance from a Newcastle side for a long long time, Newcastle are now in real danger of being relegated and our goal difference – which is worth a point if we finish level with another side- is now -23 – the same as Wigan.
Daniel Agger scored first goal after three minutes
The 6-0 defeat was the worst home defeat at St. James’ Park since 1925 – when me father was two years old.
And we have to hope that Wigan don’t make up the five points on Newcastle in their last four games (they have a game in hand), but based on this performance we’ll even be hard pressed to even get all 3 points at QPR.
We’re not sure what happened today, but it didn’t seem Newcastle were ready for this game – and it pains us to say it – but it seems we just don’t have enough mentally strong players in the squad – in other words when the going gets tough they come through – nobody did in a black and white shirt today – and I know my father will be turning in his grave – I know that.
Kevin Nolan was a player like that, who was a real leader and mentally tough, but it seems our new French players are simply overwhelmed by the horror story happening on Tyneside – and the disaster scenario could still play itself out, and we will be relegated.
That’s not an opinion – that’s the truth.
What we said in the match preview before the game was that Newcastle had to take their destiny into their own hands – but this was just so pitiful – its hard to find the right words to even try to explain what happened.
But a proud club like Newcastle United have been totally let done by the team, and the coaches and the management – and that’s the second home game running it’s happened.
This is all very hard to take.
In the last two home games we have conceded 9 goals and not scored one.
Shame has been brought today on the great Newcastle United Football Club – a club we love deeply – it was a lot worse than just a humiliation.
And my web-site has big problems too – the sky is falling in. 🙁
