History Is Made – Somebody (Swansea) Does Newcastle United A Favour

9 years ago

It’s a funny old game this football and for once it is doing the laughing.

With Newcastle’s recent dismal form it is little surprise that the uplifting of the spirits happened without a single Newcastle fan in sight.

I can’t believe I’ve drank myself stupid watching Wigan play Swansea, having such an interest in a match between these two teams shows just how far Newcastle have fallen in less than 12 months.

Fair play to Swansea who hadn’t won a Premier League match since they played….Newcastle United.

We met them on the back of their first senior trophy win and still got turned over!

Tonight though they showed their professionalism and twice came from behind, eventually running out 3-2 winners at Wigan.

Dave Whelan, Roberto Martinez, Wigan Pier, Callum Mcmanaman, George Formby; we (well, Swansea) gave your boys one hell of a beating.

At last, somebody else has done Newcastle a favour.

However, the last thing we need now is absolutely anybody connected with Newcastle United to feel that we’re safe yet.

A win at QPR on Sunday is an absolute must.
