John Carver’s chances of getting the head coach job in the summer took a blow today after 90 minutes, when Peter Crouch headed the equalizer to get Stoke a point, but we thought on the basis of the play today, Newcastle were the better side, and when you go 1-0 up at home with only 16 minutes to play, you have to be able to see the game out.
Peter Crouch broke Newcastle’s hearts with this late equalizer
But Newcastle couldn’t do that today and it’s basically 2 points thrown away.
We should have probably been 3-0 by the time Crouch scored after Gabby Obertan and Ayoze Perez both missed guilt-edged opportunities to put the game away.
We cannot think that John Carver is happy with what happened after we had gone 1-0 ahead today – we basically threw the win away.
We suppose the good news is that we at least got a point. 🙁
