Sounds like we gave it a good go with a decent performance. Unfortunate injuries stacking up already. Typical to lose via pens

Is that you Brucey ?

Ritchie sounds like he's definitely out of Saturdays game, needed three lots of stitches in his ankle after the tackle.

 

Edit: suspected ligament damage too.

Corner, Newcastle United. Conceded by Çaglar Söyüncü.

 

HOW THE FUCK do you say that?

Cha-lar Ser-yewnjew. Umlauts in the surname have a weird pronunciation that I can't really convey in text.

Luton away on a Tuesday night next round?

 

No thanks. We can focus on that Champions League spot now.

May 2015...

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley said he will be staying at the club until they win a trophy or qualify for the Champions League.

Rafa has been gone five minutes and the injuries are all piling up :lol: What is it about shit English managers and not paying any attention to fitness whatsoever? They must spend 45 minutes of every session doing beep tests.

The lows and lows of Jetro Willems. What a start he's had.

Seeing the teams pre match I expected a resounding defeat. 

We did ok to get to penalties. They were lucky to finish with with 11. That tackle was horrible and the ref must have been the only person amongst the 22k that thought it not worthy of the red.. 

 

Fucking shelveys penalty was nothing short of pathetic. 

 

Great to see Matty start.

To blame Bruce for injuries down to other team players kicking our players to shit is a bit silly. I wouldn't have risked playing Ritchie though.

Given the team we had available and the team they put out, we played fairly well.  We were organised at the back with them not really creating anything, and Longstaff made a decent impression in his first professional game.  I thought Willems was getting better and better as the game went on too.  It's nice to see someone making runs to get in behind the opposition.  We didn't really look like scoring ourselves though, Muto looks like he might have something about him but he's clearly not up to leading the line in the premier league.  He's just too small and at that size you need something exceptional about you to do that job.  But when we're hamstrung by the owner we have and in turn the squad we have, it would have been madness to risk Jo and Miggy.

I couldn't really understand why Perez was getting booed.  I mean, I've been slagging him off for years so I could have felt justified myself but it's moronic for those who were gushing over him a few months ago to boo him now.  But to be fair it probably had as much to do with the amount of kids and morons there last night who don't usually go to games as much as anything else.
