Alan Shearer has reacted on his Twitter account to Newcastle’s sixth defeat in a row to Sunderland – this time 3-0 – and Alan is right – although we had plenty of possession we had not cutting edge today up front. That’s now 13 goals conceded in the last three games.
And the reasons (sometimes known as excuses) keep mounting up as to why Newcastle have now lost six games in the first 10 league games and have conceded a massive 22 goals – which is the same as Bournemouth who were hammered 5-1 at home today to Spurs.
We have 6 points – one win and three draws – and are now second bottom of the table above only Aston Villa – whose manager Tim Sherwood was fired this morning.
Alan Shearer – penalty yes – red card no

Just like last week was two steps forward – this week was three steps back.
We should be two steps forward again next Saturday night after we have played Stoke City at home.
We hope we will be two steps forward again next Saturday night after we have played Stoke City at home.
