Jamie Carragher loves what he sees in Newcastle match “Absolute disgrace. It is an absolute joke.”

1 year ago

Jamie Carragher was the lucky man c0-commentating on Newcastle’s game.

Steve Bruce and his players visiting Tottenham in this third round of Premier League matches.

At the final whistle the scouser was ever so slightly agitated, as Newcastle walked away with a point.

Jamie Carragher celebrating this NUFC away draw with: ‘It is an absolute disgrace. It is an absolute joke.’

The Sky Sports pundit declaring: ‘Newcastle fans will be ecstatic, I can understand that. But everybody else in this country will say exactly what I am saying and what I am thinking.’

Well, I am not so sure about that.

Indeed, I think probably the overwhelming majority of people were simply laughing at Tottenham and Jose Mourinho in particular.

That is how football works.

The enjoyment when other people suffer the sheer unfairness of this stupid game.

VAR playing a blinder, along with the stupid new handball rules.

Would people, including Jamie Carragher, have been quite so outraged if this daft decision had gone against Newcastle United?

I’m not convinced.

Jamie Carragher talking to Sky Sports:

“There have been other decisions that have been given as penalties like this.

“Eric Dier has jumped up for the header, has absolutely no control of where he arms are going when he is jumping.

“I hope that is not a penalty.

“It is.

“It is an absolute disgrace.

“It is an absolute joke.

“Newcastle fans will be ecstatic, I can understand that.

“But everybody else in this country will say exactly what I am saying and what I am thinking.

“Eric Dier jumps for the ball, has no control where his arms are going to be.

“There’s a header half a yard away from him, hits him on the back of an arm, has no idea what is going on.

“This is a joke.

“Whether it is the Premier League, the FA, FIFA, Collina, whoever is involved in this.

“Stop it.

“Because you are ruining football for everybody.”
