Good old Newcastle.
Things are looking grim at Bolton but you can always rely on the Mugpies for a good laugh. Last night`s miserable performance at Derby was a sign of things to come for the most ridiculous club in football.
Since being gifted three points at Bolton, Newcastle have been booed off the pitch by their own fans after being out classed by Aston Villa and then they struggled to beat the mighty ten-man Wigan (another club who are set to plummet).
Off the pitch, things aren`t any better. It`s been reported that new owner Mike Ashley is desperate to sell the club, Sam Allardyce is depressed because he can`t understand what the neighbours are saying, sick note Owen is injured again and the club`s sponsor, Northern Rock is going down faster than a Geordie girl in a taxi-rank.
The club`s supporters are as usual, taking a measured view. Not.
There was such optimism before the game.
‘Derby 1-3 newcastle. Owen with 2 and Ameobi to score the other.`
‘We will have a clean sheet. I go for 3-0 to us. Martins, Milner and Owen to score.`
‘4-0 the Toon. Owen (2), N’Zogbia, Smith.`
‘I reckon 3-0 to the toon; Owen, Martins and the Duke or Ameobi.`
Things had soured somewhat afterward.
‘Absolute disgrace its just like last season im meant to be seeing them against west ham next week but i might just rip up my ticket if theyre going to play like this.`
‘Sorry guys but i do not want to see route one football all the time it was shocking. ameobi you are not good enough you won f*** all in the air and just strolled around the park looking as if you did not want to be there, time for you to leave.`
‘We look a mess!`
‘No creativity whatsoever. Butt NEEDS to go, he’s absolutely useless.`
‘totally shocking we played terrible dident deserve a thing, derby should have won 4-0 , as for mr owen , he was mince. com on big sam get your finger oot.`
Once again, thanks to the Newcastle Mad website for more nuggets of unintentional hilarity.
Tears on Tyneside
Good old Newcastle.
