Newcastle’s performance last night at home to Tottenham was simply terrible, and throughout the game the Newcastle defense looked nervous and hesitant and Tim Krul, after playing probably his finest game for Newcastle in the 1-0 win at White Hart Lane earlier this season, had a very poor game and was responsible for the first two goals conceded by Newcastle last night.
Alan Pardew – has 12 games to turn this around
And it was the fourth league defeat in the trot at home by Newcastle for the first time since 1977, and it was the 5th defeat on the trot at home in all competitions, after losing 2-1 to second bottom of the league Cardiff City.
And in the four league games we haven’t even managed to score one goal, and we have conceded 10 goals – so even the figures and records are indicative that this is quickly becoming another disastrous season for Newcastle.
And that follows last year’s abomination – where at least we had the excuse that the 14 games in Europe were too much for the squad.
We have now gone nine games in all competitions and lost seven of them and in those nine games we’ve only managed to score in two of them.
So it really is shocking.
Alan Pardew is already on trial this season to prove last season was just an anomaly, but he is simply not getting the best out of the squad, and remember the team last night was only three players short of our best side, with only Coloccini, Tiote and Remy missing.
We want to hear apologies from the Newcastle manager and the players – and it would be nice to hear something from the leader of the club, the owner Mike Ashley – but there’s fast chance of that.
Newcastle are in a disastrous position at the moment, but there are 12 games left – 12 games left to separate the men from the boys – and we hope to see some men in black and white stand up and be counted before the end of this season.
