Yesterday hurt, it was pitiful, pathetic and pointless. Newcastle United’s display at Leicester was one of the worst I’ve ever seen. Yesterday started very early with a 6:30 alarm call which allowed us to get over to Leicester for 10:30. All the pre match patter was about relegation and if we lost and the mackems won that we’d be right be in the shit.
The feeling towards relegation this time round is very different to 09, many mags don’t care. Relegation would also prove to be massive ‘Fuck off we were right’ to Mr Ashley. To be honest I’m caught in two minds about the whole thing.
Newcastle United lined up in a bizarre 4-3-3 given the footballers on the pitch. The centre kick to begin the game is worst than any you’ll see across Sunday league matches the season. A poor pass back to Ryan Taylor led yo his hoof up field being charged down and 36 seconds later Leicester had earned. A good delivery and poor marking led to 1-0. Fucking basics undoing United again.
Now, me as much as anyone doesn’t think Carver’s up to the job but what the fuck can he do about that. If
underperfomred as much as the players have since January I wouldn’t get my salary, I work in a performance led industry and so did they. Newcastle United should be fining footballers for yesterday’s debacle.
The feeling in the United crowd after goal was gut wrenching, genuine long standing mags looked at each other with a ‘Fuck’ look. I wish I didn’t care but sadly i still do. What’s happening with the club at the moment is very depressing and I’d be lying if I said It wasn’t effecting my life. I’m looking at jobs abroad just to get way from it FFS.
Leciester’s , with a crowd in full voice and smelling blood, second shortly followed. Another set piece, another not tracked and another goal. Krul’s positioning on the goal was piss poor as well. Woodman should be sacked purely for how far that lad’s went backwards.
After this the away crowd turned their attentions to Ashley and Carver with a similar 34th minute display to the one at Swansea last week. After this point I headed to the bar, this club leads me to drink. It’s an addiction that gets you other addictions.
The concourse was a depressing place to be, all full of lads trying to give a reason why they needn’t go next season.
Ashley’s killed family histories, our heritage and our soul. My Dad’s 65 and he says this is the worst it’s ever been. I feel many of the same age would tend to agree.
After half time I headed up only to see Leicester make it 3 with a penalty. At that point I headed back to the bar, only to return for the last 10 minuted where I saw Janmaat’s sending off and the players cowardice exit from the field.
We’re on brink.
This club is dying a long and a painful death.
