Before I start I’ll outline this is an opinion piece and not a tactical assessment on how our moronic manager was outdone by a man who many feel has been found out this season. If you want that then pick up a broadsheet.
Everton away has always been one of my favourite aways. I love the ground, city and it’s a place I’ve had some happy memories following United at.
The day started with a couple of swift beers in Manchester before making the easy trip across to Merseyside. In Liverpool I met up with a few lads who are probably the only reason I continue to go. The football is continually poor but I can never complain at the craic I have pre match.
You can tell so many are despondent with United at the moment. Pre match in the boozer I don’t think one person mentioned the match, line up or who we felt would get our first goal. In fact I had good chat about politics and how teachers that vote Tory are utter bellends. It was pleasant.
On entering Goodison I could tell that there were many of our support who were worse for wear and on more than just alcohol. Now, I’ve been given some gip this morning for calling this behaviour disgraceful but if you don’t find 15 year old kids coked off their head disgusting then I think you’ve lost the plot. My old man always used to say that when following Newcastle United you are representing your club, city and most importantly yourself. Sadly there seems a lot of support who didn’t care how much of a tit they look like.
Its probably BANTZ to them and their mates.
On to the match and it was a very poor affair between two dreadful teams. United lined up with Riviere up front on his own and Gouffran in the middle of the park. How this team isn’t a drift at the bottom is beyond me ! We’ll be lucky to pick up another point. However, for the first ten minutes United were the better team with Williamson going close, in all honesty he should’ve buried it.
After that United decided to give an overweight and not fit Darren Gibson the freedom of the park. Colback and Gouffran in particular looking miles off the pace. If the latter doesn’t offer work rate then I’ve got no fucking idea why he’s playing. He needs to go in the summer.
So many of our players seemed to have packed it in. In a way can you blame them ? What is the point of Newcastle United Football Club past January ? Answers on a post card please.
been anonymous for the last few weeks. Shouldn’t he be busting his gut to force a move away from this rabble ? To be honest he’s probably already got one sorted.
Everton’s first goal was poor from United. A long ball wasn’t dealt with by Williamson or ‘Colo the coward’ and Lukaku laid on McCarthy to score with a very weak effort that Krul should’ve saved. Its so sad to see how backwards Krul’s gone. During the 5th season he was sensational, whilst now he seems to struggle with the basic fundamentals of goalkeeping. I’m positive that fat prick woodman’s got something to with it.
A quick not on our support yesterday.
- Singing about Adam Johnson possibly sexually abusing someone isn’t funny.
- Singing about people being on the dole isn’t funny. Its not like Newcastle a wash with jobs is it now ?
In general our support was as poor as its been all season. People singing Colo’s name after he got sent off as he didn’t fancy it anymore. Fucking idiots man.
The second half was even poorer than the first with Newcastle never looking in any danger of scoring. Gouffran whilst trying to dribble the ball out of our area like he was Diego Maradona led to Everton earning a penalty. Lennon nipped in and Gouffran made a needless challenge which led to the ref pointing to the spot.Does anyone give away more cheap penalties than us ? We’re fucking shambolic.
Lukaku stepped up and duly put Everton 2-0 up. At this point I was desperate to go home.
Shortly after Everton’s 2nd I saw one of the most cowardice acts I’ve ever seen from a United player.Coloccini’s tackle was his way of getting out of the next few games. He doesn’t fancy it anymore. The prick can sod off to Argentina for all I care. He’s fucking disgrace. From Captain Marvel to Captain Coward in 3 years. Its proper gutting.
Jonas came on to a good reception again and actively looked like he gave a toss. I’d have the bloke starting in the middle for the rest of the season. At least he cares.
Twenty certainly was plenty for this Newcastle United display. If we lose in Albania in 3 weeks time then I’d be shocked to see more than 500 United fans next time we’re in Liverpool.
Keep the faith if you can be arsed to.
Their support: still obsessed with Liverpool it seems. 5
Our support. nearly as poor as the team. 3
