Newcastle Prove Shocking Stats Right Yet Again With No Backbone After Conceding
Yes again Newcastle have shown that once they concede a goal they are very very likely to concede another and…another.
The killer goal proved not to be the Lukaku first after only four minutes or even the Barkley one after 25 minutes, instead the goal that made the difference was a third, and Lukaku’s second, in 37 minutes which condemned Newcastle to a defeat despite scoring two at Goodison. This a ground that had seen seven consecutive clean sheets previous to tonight.
You have to see this as a serious character flaw in our current team/squad, conceding one goal should not make it much more likely that you should concede quickly again. Going a goal down should see you rolling your sleeves up and trying extra hard to make sure you don’t allow the match to totally slip away.
We ran an article yesterday which showed Newcastle to be by far the worst Premier League team for falling apart once they’ve let a goal in.
You can see that article [intlink id=”34421″ type=”post”]HERE[/intlink], containing the shocking statistic of on average letting in 2.48 goals in games where Newcastle don’t keep a clean sheet, the three goals conceded tonight making that record even worse.
