Newcastle performance and result against Liverpool was as bad as it gets

Posted by: Clarky · December 28, 2008 · Comment 

I guess whatever we say, we should not devalue Liverpool’s performance, which was as good as ours was abject. The difference between the two teams was an absolute chasm, and horribly demonstrated just how far we have fallen while the ‘dippers have steadily progressed.

To be perfectly honest, so utterly appaling was our defensive performance (and that includes the midfield) it could quite easily have been double figures. That it wasn’t was largely down to …

Maybe they should not have come or leave the Toon in first place

Who are they? For me, one of them has been proved very usefull and has set his heart to build very well relationships with the Toon Army, while the other one is struggling to prove what he can do and set a reasonable ambition of his own.

I thought Pompey edged the 1st half, while we comfortably won the 2nd. Pompey made an @rse of their chances, while we took ours well and could easily have had a couple more.

Despite making better use of our chances we still conceded possession too easily in that 1st half, when I thought we struggled in midfield.

However, we stuck at it, and getting the 1st goal changed the game in much the same way …
