Poll – Who Was Newcastle’s Best Player In Defeat To Liverpool?

Newcastle fail to improve on last season’s points total after falling 3-1 to Liverpool. Though even if we had somehow gotten a result, it’s been a bizarre season that’s hard to compare to others.

Our goal difference is atrocious as we hit the -20 mark after today’s defeat. Dwight Gayle’s early goal leaves us at only 38 for the season. These both must drastically improve next season.

Before the game, it was announced that Martin Dubravka was named as the Player of the Year. However, he had another rough outing against Liverpool as we lose by the same scoreline as the defeat at Anfield in September.

To be honest, there weren’t too many Magpies to stand out in this one as Liverpool dominated the match after conceding the early goal. Newcastle defended well with the makeshift backline in the first half.

However, some ball watching at the back paved the way for Divock Origi and Sadio Mane to get two second-half goals to give the visitors a comfortable victory.

We thought Federico Fernandez was a warrior once again at the back. He’s played every minute since the restart and has really become an unsung hero during this strange season.

It was also great to see young Kelland Watts make his Newcastle debut. It’s just a pity that circumstances meant he couldn’t get a rousing St James Park welcome from the fans.

    I’ll always still watch the team, I just won’t give the club another penny.

    He’s stolen from us for 13 years.

    Would anyone pay money to someone who stole from them repeatedly for over a decade?

    Do the loan signings have to be confirmed by tomorrow if we’re going to take up the options to buy? I’d expect that to be our next business this summer. Rose and Bentaleb most likely, probably not Lazaro.

    And is Matty’s contract out tomorrow too?

    Sad times 🙁

    We took 1 point from the last 15

    Doesn’t feel right somehow.

    Still Bruce will be pleased that we managed to finish with a close run defeat at home to Liverpool’s reserves for part of the match

    44 points each season over two seasons is less than Liverpool in one season

    In business it’s called benchmarking

    Ashley calls it cushty – Cockney slang for mediocrity

    We call it something else

    He must have been furious when we got 65 points
    He obviously needed to sell off players as he had spent too much on the team

    Can’t he having that

    So 60 odd million spent, 40m striker, yet a point less and a much worse GD with fewer goals scored and 10000 fans walking away. So very glad we’re not ”stagnating” and going nowhere.

    To all the bruce fans saying he was doing better and had more points than Rafa..actually no, 1 point in 15, a la pardew, put paid to that.

    Jeez some people don’t half repeat themselves, last of the posts on the previous thread, one of the first posts on the next.

    It’s like they feel they’re more important and MUST HAVE THEIR THOUGHTS KNOWN.

    Limp lettuces eh?

    Anyway i voted for Javier Manquillo cos no-one else will – but hey, why don’t we all vote for him, it’ll show just how skewed internet polls really are.

    Probably asked who he thinks would be the better replacement for ASM next season out of Atsu and Murphy.

    Sheffield United 10 points better than Newcastle United and with a goal difference better by 20.

    Another benchmark for Bruce to set his stall out by.

    No thanks.

    Rotonda – Bringing up the total money spent and the price tag for Joelinton just makes your argument weaker to be honest, so I don’t know why you keep mentioning it. Both managers have suffered from a lack of quality on the pitch. Rafa did a fine job of getting us stable in the Premier League again, but Bruce has done ok considering how late he came in and the having to cope with the loss of three strikers. We can only hope that takeover or not we can add some actual quality in areas where we badly need them.

    Speaking about the phonecall with Ashley, Bruce said: “It was to everybody, all of us.

    “He wanted to say thank you for all the hard work and that was it.”

    David Gold and David Sullivan woke up to find brand new ferraris on their driveways, wrapped in claret and blue bows. Must have been a token of appreciation from the west ham supporters.

    What the club needs is root and branch reform from top to bottom..

    That is not a job for the faint hearted or anyone young..

    Think about it as someone (or fund trust whatever) who wants to invest not as a quick fix but for increasing the value of the club..

    You then need to arrive at a course of action, who can you put your plan into fruition? Someone with experience, vast experience, someone with the necessary credentials, someone who has the backing not just of the “board” but the fans also…
    I wonder….

    Well lads another mediocre season in the books at least were not going down.What is the Prem doing? So much hypocrisy. Well paid bureaucrats trying to make a decision on what used to be a working mans club, what could possibly go wrong. Have we not heard enough excuses why we constantly under perform. Can understand why people are walking away.
