It was another very poor performance tonight – this time against a middle of the table Championship side – and with almost the strongest team we could field tonight – we were still second best and deservedly lost 1-0 to Sheffield Wednesday and it could have been worse.
We were again powder puff in the final third and although it may be a big risk on Saturday, McClaren may be forced to start Mitrovic up front against Chelsea and hope he can make a difference.
Another bad result and another pathetic performance
This bad start – worse than last year at this time – seems to suggest the nightmare of last season is still continuing.
That´s unless we are dreaming about this or I´ve died and gone to hell – hang on – let´s stick this pin in my arm.
Ouch – that hurt – no this must be real – I seem to still be in the world of the living.
And while it’s a new team with a new coach at Newcastle, other teams aren’t struggling like we are, and they have new coaches and new players too.
Newcastle cannot fall too far behind in the Premier League table and we have the daunting prospect of playing Chelsea and Manchester City in our next two games, before the two week International break.
You can bet your life both teams will start each game like the proverbial steam train and try to score goals early so both games could be over fairly quickly.
If we happen to lose both those games then those two weeks of International football are going to be shrouded in negativity at Newcastle – it may be a good time to take a vacation and get away from it all.
The again maybe England will win both their games.
Newcastle are finding it hard to win a game and now have five defeats and one win (against a League Two club) in our first eight games of the season.
And in five of those games we haven’t scored and our top scorer is Daryl Janmaat our right-back.
That´s not good.
Sounds just like last season under John Carver, and Mike Ashley will be just a little worried that we may be in for yet another relegation fighting season, and that´s after spending £52M in the summer transfer market.
Oh my – and we were expecting a decent season this time around.
Tells you how much we know.
