New blockbuster just out: ‘Newcastle United – Gone in 27 seconds’.

Yes that is how long the team lasted before handing the match to Manchester City on Saturday.

No surprise either to see Mike Williamson and Vurnon Anita being the two players combining to give away a terrible needless penalty.

John  Carver wasn’t too impressed either…

“All your preparations through the week go out of the window when you concede a penalty within a minute…

“Straight from the kick-off, ball down the side, he had a chance to clear it and we talk about staying in the game as long as we can…”

It’s almost game over:

“But when you concede a penalty within a minute it’s an uphill task and concede the second within 12 (minutes), it’s even harder.

“It is almost game over.”

When you concede a goal as bad as that, so quickly, then you know there is something seriously wrong with the players or the coaching, or both.

No doubt this week we will be hearing plenty about working even harder on the training ground, learning from mistakes and players and coaches knowing how much it means to the fans.
