Newcastle’s Shock 3-2 Defeat To Hull

Saturday, September 21st, 2013 · 59 Comments

Even though Loic Remy put Newcastle United ahead twice in the first half, and the Magpies had completely dominated the game in the first 20 minutes, some poor defending from Newcastle led to some sloppy goals being conceded, and Newcastle lost this game 3-2, and it was not a good day at the office today, especially for the Newcastle defense.

Alan Pardew came under tremendous pressure in the summer after last season’s poor showing, when amazingly we had to fight off a relegation scare, and we only just managed to accomplish that when Wigan started to lose some of their last games of the season, , and one of our problems was that our squad was just not big enough to take on European competition as well as the Premier League, and injuries to some of our best players like Colo, Ben Arfa, Tim Krul and Yohan Cabaye meant we could very rarely field our best side.
