Blackburn vs Newcastle – Postmortem

December 01 13:16 2007 Print This Article

Howay the Lads!!! It’s disappointed again if we’re talking about the result. But it is something beyond the reach, as some wise-men say we were not with the ladyluck side today.

Some lads who watch the game have a verdict that we were better than we were before in the last few games. Keith from the NotBBC forum told that we played some decent pass and move football instead of just lumping it up the field this time.

The lads tried hard and showed some passion but all to no avail in the end. We seem to lack penetration and the defence can never be counted on when you need them to stay tight.

Speaking about the luck, We had excellent chances at 1-1 to take the lead with Martins and Smith have decent strike, not to mention a clear penalty at 2-1 and an offside flag to deny us get an equaliser.

Some crap defending from Rozy and Stephen ‘What Can You Expecting From’ Carr give the advantage to the home team. But the way the Lads doing some commitment after that was excellent, too bad it didn’t produce any goal during the Euro.

Martins and Barton put in very solid performances. Special note to Barton, he handled the pressure from home players really well today. Blackburn players were intent on winding him up, and get him yellow carded and even receive the red one, but he managed to not let it affect him too much.

Their first goal was a cracking goal, I didn’t blame Given for it as it’s really a shot of a luck. The same as their second, despite of some poor defending, Bentley really did it well.

Third goal was a kick in the teeth, something that we can avoid it, we are in a rush to make the good out of the four minutes of injury time.

What about Allardyce now, does he still under pressure after today’s result? Good supporters may not see that this is fault, the 6,000 travelling fans gave good full backing as a quick answer to Joey Barton’s anger over some “vicious” criticism of the team.

The Toon Army has showed him what the Newcastle supporters really are. I can see that he is also taking good result too from our support for the team today. He is getting mature and learn to handle the pressure well this time, good lad!

Well, at last we can start scoring again today. With the visit of Arsenal on the midweek and Birmingham next weekend I can see the team starts to gell, and Sam Allardyce knows what the best for the team. The only thing that he still had to work with is to manage the backfour, still time for that.
