Alan Shearer had it right when he said Newcastle were awful and it was good job Rob Elliot made some good saves for us.
Alan says they were awful tonight – he could just as easily used shocking, disgraceful, insipid, terrible, pathetic – all would have described tonight’s performance – and how much has Mike Ashley paid out for players since last season?
If Mike Ashley wants to have a Premier League club next season he needs to make some decisions – soon – on Steve McClaren – he’s just not good enough and has shown that all season.
That’s the truth.
