Newcastle fans are getting just a little bit sick and tired of Newcastle being humiliated by Sunderland every time we play them, and we’ve now lost the last three games, and in each case Sunderland have been below Newcastle in the league in the bottom four – it’s not like they have a good team and are in the top six.
Alan Pardew yesterday
Alan Pardew was besieged after the game by reporters and this is some of what he told them after the game, and it’s an indictment of some of Newcastle’s players:
“You know, in terms of attitude and application and winning headers and winning tackles, I thought we was pretty even. But in terms of possession we wasn’t.”
“We lost our heads today. In a derby you’ve got to be brave with the ball and you’ve got to make the right decisions, and we didn’t do that today.”
We suppose those claims of having too many French players (or too few English and local players) will come up again, but Alan Pardew has to be responsible for getting his players ready for the derby games, which are the two most important games of the season for Newcastle fans.
And he’s now the manager whose lost three in a row, for the first time since 1923.
It’s Alan’s record against Sunderland which is more likely to get him the sack from Newcastle than anything else – can you imagine the situation next year if we’ve lost five in a row against Sunderland for the first time in our history?
My whole body just started to shake. 🙁
