Newcastle United Message Board
If there is one thing that is predictable about the TOON is that we are so UNPREDICTABLE!!!
Well done lads on a great team effort tonight - you ALL ran your socks off and palyed for each other tonight!!!
My issue is that you have shown, not for the first time, that you are capable of playing half decent football, and the ability to COMPETE, so why did it not happen particularly against Liverpool?
We do have an issue going forward though - there are still too many long balls going in to one of the smallest centre forwards in the league (Martins) and I have to say I am still not convinced about his Premier League credentials......
And we lost the ball too often tonight, Barton being the main culprit in the first half although he did improve in the second 45 minutes.
Butt was outstanding, my man of the match amongst many, especially as he appeared unwell after just 15 minutes.
The issue then is this......can we replicate the passion, effort, will to compete against the Brummies?
As for Sam........WELL DONE!!!! You have returned from the brink!!!
Ian in Seghill
No probs Jabber,
ick at all.
Looking down the reults though, our performances at SJP have been pretty dire though, and without the cup result, ...?!!
Never the less, our results at White Hart lane werent much better and we turned them over...OK ..well we won then !
Still going for 1-3 Birmingham.....Who's getting the first round in then?
