How did we manage that?! Awful. Give them all two weeks off and play the under-15s against Sunderland in the cup. Thank god for Cech.
Very very lucky win, but these are the games we've been dropping points in this season.
I agree the ref was shite, as was most of our team bar Cech, Koscielny and the subs.
shocked at how poor your midfield was. tiote, colback and gini dominated them, we just can't finish off chances. still, winning games you shouldn't is what gets you titles.
referee has pissed me the fuck off today though. all it took was a whiny home crowd and he bent over for them. soft as fuck
Especially as we've got Liverpool away four days later, and Stoke away four days after that. I'm sure Allardyce has absolutely no interest in the cup either so it shouldn't be too strenuous a workout anyway.I couldn't agree more. As amazing as winning the FA Cup a third year running would be, the squad is paper thin at the moment and everyone is looking shattered.
Awful performance from us and we looked incapable of closing anyone down. Thankfully Newcastle are a bit shit and couldn't take advantage.
