The result was a bad result for Newcastle especially when we so close to getting our first win against Aston Villa since the season before last, when we took them apart 1-0 at St. James’ Park on 28th February.
That was the game before we lost eight Premier League games on the trot under then interim manager John Carver.
It’s always difficult when you lose 2 points with a minute to play in normal time, but that’s what happened yesterday.

Presumably Rafa will be giving the strikers some shooting practice early this week since we had enough chances to have won this game easily.
But we didn’t and that’s the concern.
The lads have to come up with a huge performance on Wednesday night against Norwich City and hopefully in front of a huge crowd at St. James’ Park.
A few of the players sent messages thanking the fans for their support at the game.
That feels like a loss to me, we need to learn how to manage the game better and see teams off. Fight back Wednesday ??
