‘ Did we expect anything else ? ‘

By Carl Curtis


We went up to Newcastle to face the champions elect and we come away with what most expected, absolutely nothing.

That said, for the majority of the game City were dominated by a rampant Newcastle side, who scored so early on that City’s game plan was blown apart within three minutes.

Rickie Lambert was a surprise inclusion this afternoon and not many would have thought Whittingham would have been dropped to the bench.

Warnock went for a defensive 4-5-1 but after Newcastle scored after a few minutes our chances of anything from the game were as remote as us winning the league.

The fear for most of the game was that Newcastle would run riot and we would be on the end of a hiding but thankfully, with some good fortune, we were able to keep the score respectable.

Even better was that we scored ourselves and as a result it doesn’t look as bad as it probably should have.

That said even though Newcastle dominated, City had chances to score before Whittingham came off the bench and pulled one back.

Whittingham has now scored against 40 different clubs during his career, not bad for a midfielder.

Our goal difference could have taken a hammering today but thankfully it didn’t.

Newcastle had 67% of the possession and 18 shots but only 4 on target, City had 10 shots with 2 on target.

I think Warnock will be glad https://Meet-Babes.com to have the international break to assess what he has seen in his first few games, players to get fit and a chance to work with the players to hatch a plan to get us back on track after two successive defeats.

I hate City losing but didn’t expect anything else today but hope we can turn things around against Huddersfield in a fortnight.
