As you go through the squad list, the names are quickly chalked off, until there are only a handful of players left. A shortlist of the ‘best of the worst’, if you will. For me that shortlist looks a little bit like this: Demba Ba, Papiss Cisse, Davide Santon, James Perch, Steven Taylor and Sylvain Marveaux.
All season, strange decisions and tactics have affected our games. Seemingly overly defensive tactics, a lack of confidence in our ability to attack, and the increasingly frustrating saga that is our corners. Are you allowed to score from them? I can’t remember.
The donations to the club will hopefully help to show that the majority of Newcastle fans are decent people, who would travel across the world to follow our great club, but that unfortunately, a minority is spoiling our great reputation.
