It’s hard to think how the last 30 minutes of the game and the season could have gone any worse, after we had been playing very well and leading 1-0 through an own goal from Daniel Agger after 20 minutes, but we conceded from two set plays after 63 and 65 minutes, Shola Ameobi was sent off after the second goal before the game kicked off again, after he said something to the referee, and then another local lad Paul Dummett was sent off after 87 minutes for a flying tackle on Suarez, who did his usual Hollywood job of writhing around in pain on the pitch, before getting up and carrying on, but only after Dummett had been shown the red card..
We somehow don’t think Mike Ashley will be too impressed with the collapse of this Newcastle side in the last 30 minutes of the season..
Whats going on?
And just to make things worse, if that’s necessary, Stoke City scored a winning goal through Charlie Adam in the 87th minute at West Brom to win the game, and go above Newcastle, and we now finish in 10th place and we lost eight of our last ten games since the Hull City Alan Pardew disaster, and we lost seven of the last eight games – just absolutely and completely terrible.
The final 30 minutes of the game was almost as bad as three years ago when we were winning 3-0 at home to West Brom, and we then conceded three goals to draw and finish 12th in the league, and if had won we would have been 9th – today was another suicidal last 30 minutes of the season for Newcastle – a complete lack of discipline.
The team has simply lost it this year.
Let us know who you think the best Newcastle player was today.
