Former Player – Players Need A Kick Up The ****

Former striker Mick Quinn was none too pleased with Newcastle’s rather inept performance last night against Sheffield Wednesday when we managed – not for the first time this season – to lose at home in front of a capacity crowd of over 52,000.

It was also the third time in four home defeats that we failed to score as well as not turn up for the game.

    Darlow man of match, says it all, with all our possession!
    Dummett and Anita poor- Anita trying to win headers against a 6ft plus player – braindead?
    Clark missed a sitter, he and Lascalles must be in competition with 1 eyed Jack for most sideways and backwards passes! And why do they run away from the opposition when they are attacking down our centre – like the parting of the sea!

    Ginger Jack must still have a problem with 1 eye – the 1 for the forward pass!
    Hayden was probably our best outfield player.
    Diame did 1 or 2 good things early on, then disappeared!
    Gouff and Ritchie both awful!
    Gaye nearly scored -great save, then kept coming too deep.

    Atsu did well though he and Anita nearly tripped over each other a few times -no understanding!
    Perez was one of their best players! Useless!
    Mitro should have been on sooner, tried but no joy.

    The best team on the day won. Their tactics were spot on. They harried, hustled and bullied our players. They gave no quarter and benefited from the ref’s leniency. Other refs would have waved at least one red card Their attacks were quick and incisive.

    Of us, we sorely missed Shelvey. So many pundits and commentators have said so many times this season that he has orchestrated games much like an American football quarterback. No shame should be attributed to Colback or Hayden as they (or anyone else at the club) has the range of skills and attributes that Shelvey has.

    This defeat may be one of many during Shelvey’s enforced absence I regret to say unless Benetez can come up with alternative tactics to compensate for Shelvey’s absence.

    Ref must have warned every Wednesday player for cynical fouls, trips, pull backs – stopped several good breaks from us first half- finally 6 yellows but should have been a lot more!
    Great acting by Fletcher -Oscar for his broken leg come slight knock!
    Even better by Wallace when he broke his non-fouling leg in 8 places after taking out Anita!
