It was another boring draw tonight at Crystal Palace even though Newcastle went ahead in the game for the third time running, and though we seemed solid enough in defense we again allowed an equalizer after 71 minutes so just one point from the game , when we really needed three to ignite the season.
But we didn’t lose, which would have been catastrophic and so that’s good – we suppose – but next time we meet Alan Pardew’s team, we need a top coach in charge of Newcastle.
Campbell Fraizer equalizes after 71 minutes
We have crawled up to 32 points from 25 games played,six points from six games since Alan Pardew left, and the only positive thing is we are probably safe from relegation, given that we can get a few wins before the end of the season, but we need to show a lot more urgency in these games.
Who was it that said our season was over when we played a very weak side the in the FA Cup and lost 1-0 to Leicester City?
They were right.
Newcastle seem to be just limping along – and that’s ridiculous with 13 games left in the season.
Oh for some ambition from those in charge of this football club, and we did notice that Mike Ashley was not at the game tonight.
And with four minutes to go in the game John Carver replaced Remy Cabella with Paul Dummett, hardly a move that was trying to win the game for Newcastle.
If we had won the game tonight we would have gone above both Swansea and Stoke and into 9th place.
On a positive note – since most fans in our poll thought we would lose this game, that disaster didn’t happen.
That’s something to be happy about – isn’t it?
