As for O’Fool claiming they were the better team on the day, I think somebody had better sack the person on the BBC Sport website who has the job of counting things…. 24 shots to 7, 57% possession to 43% and 19 corners to 4!
The icing on the cake though is the mackem manager scurrying off back to mackemland (or wherever it is in Newcastle he lives if he’s anything like his players!) rather than doing the done thing of having a chat and a drink with his opposite number.
Reasons to be cheerful….5th in table, Martin’s Mackems got beat, Swansea did us a favour…..and you’re almost certainly not the bloke I heard after the match who said, “…thought Shola had a canny game…”.
