In the three successive games Newcastle lost from 1922 through 1923 we lost 2-0, 3-2 and 2-0 so in those three successive defeats 91 years ago, we conceded seven goals and scored two goals.
11th November 1922 Sunderland 2 Newcastle 0 - Roker Park 15th December 1923 Sunderland 3 Newcastle 2 - Roker Park 22nd December 1923 Newcastle 0 Sunderland 2 - St. James' Park
This time we conceded eight goals and scored only one goal in the three successive defeats.
The other thing that is worse this time around is that two of our defeats – both by 3-0 – have been at St. James’ Park, whereas back then, two of the defeats were away at the old Roker Park.
So we have equaled the worst record in consecutive games against Sunderland ever – and it currently stands at three defeats in a row.
Now we have to wonder what will happen next season? 🙁
