Newcastle fans were not happy after we again bombed out of the FA Cup at the first hurdle for the fourth time in a row – and this after one of our major targets this season – for the first time in over eight years – was supposed to be to win a cup.
Rather than that we are battling relegation earlier than we have ever done in any Premier League season and got just 3 points from our first 8 games and now have just 17 points from the first 20 games and there are 11 defeats in there.
Fabricio Coloccini – wants to turn things around
Newcastle missed their chances again and also managed to gift Troy Deeney with the only goal of the game.
Well that´s one way you can lose a game.
This is what Colo has said about the fans’ significant anger and complete frustration following the game:
“It’s normal because the fans have to express,” “They give everything for this club and they want results.”
“They are unhappy and they have to know we keep trying and working hard to get those results.”
“We have had some nasty results but we all want to win and turn this around. We understand them and we are working to improve things for them and for the club.”
The way Newcastle can quickly rectify this situation is by producing 100% effort in the games, which the lads have been doing, but also put some of those chances away – and get some wins on the board.
Those are results when you get all 3 points and we´ve had precious little of them in the last year.
We´ve also looked atrocious in front of goal since we beat Tottenham 2-1 at White Hart Lane.
