Just when we thought it couldn’t get much worse, Newcastle were decidedly second best against 4th bottom of the league Sunderland this afternoon, and for the second time in a row Sunderland have won at St. James’ Park by a score of 3-0 – and they have now won the last three derby games against Newcastle, and that’s the first time that’s happened in 91 years.
Adam Johnson – after scoring Sunderland’s second goal
And we were wondering who would score the goals with Loic Remy, Yohan Cabaye and Yoan Gouffran all missing the game for one reason or another.
And to tell the truth Sunderland were much the better side today, and it could have been even worse than 3-0 – but 3-0 for the second time running is simply a tragedy for Newcastle United.
That first half display today was simply shambolic and a disgrace to the football club.
And we need to sign some leaders for this team in the summer – there was no courage or guts shown by the vast majority of the Newcastle players today.
But we may be on a downward path in the league with Chelsea and Tottenham, the next two games for Newcastle – and this after Mike Ashley has allowed the side to be considerably weakened by the sale of Yohan Cabaye last week – and not have him replaced.
And of course Mike Ashley and Joe Kinnear were nowhere to be seen today – so they have shown no courage either – just like the players – and Pardew got a shellacking from the fans
And in the last three years Pardew has gone up against Gus Poyet four times – twice against Brighton and twice against Sunderland – and lost every time – so that doesn’t look too good for the future does it?
This is a very very low point for Newcastle, and in our last six league games we have lost four and won only one.
Every single Newcastle player has to look at themselves in the mirror after this game – it was a pathetic and gutless performance.
