It’s not too surprising that Newcastle fans were split on the reaction to the draw at Birmingham yesterday when we were expected to beat an off-form Blues side.
But we didn’t, even though we had the chances to do that, but it was the same old story – we missed chances and their goalkeeper was outstanding – oh yes and we had a good goal disallowed by Matt Ritchie in the first half.
But sooner or later (make the sooner) we have to start getting the results that our play deserves.
The results are all that really matter these days as the season draws to a close in the next seven weeks.
Matt Ritchie in action yesterday
That’s really the two sides of the story and we still gained a point on both Brighton and Huddersfiled and remain at the top of the league table.
Here’s some reaction form fans to yesterday’s draw.
The gods keep smiling on us. But we have to create our own luck. Title rivals lost yet we couldn’t take advantage. Let’s do this! #NUFC

#NUFC fans infuriate me, constant negativity and nothings good enough. We might of drew but it’s one more point than the teams about us.

Rafa was right, April is a crucial month. Hoping, Ritchie and Hanley come back unscathed from Int. duty. #NUFC

#nufc are still in a good position, as long as they focus and dig in it’s there. Shouldn’t throw it away now, but that’s nufc for you!

Gutted for today, Birmingham parking the bus at 50 mins, we had the wrong starting team to break them down #NUFC
