ohmelads 0 Posted August 6, 2005 Share Posted August 6, 2005 My heart went out to Robbie Elliott when he made the fatal mistake which effectively ended Newcastle United's hopes of playing European football this season. Yes, Newcastle United did have a lot of chances against Deportivo La Coruna after Robbie's howler. But the minute the left-back dropped that back-pass short and the impressive Pedro Munitis - what a workie ticket he was - ran the ball into the empty net, then United's hopes of having a crack at the UEFA Cup again had disappeared. Yet who was the first United player to come through the press's mixed zone after the game? Yes, the Geordie boy faced the music and took the blame for it all. This is in direct contrast to Lee Bowyer. United's cocky - sorry Cockney - midfielder has the pet lip on with the press. It's our fault, of course, that he tried to punch Kieron Dyer's lights out - and he slunk out through the mixed zone, refusing polite requests to speak to the media. Yes, there's something about being a Geordie. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
