Video highlights of last nights 2-1 defeat to Blackburn Rovers at St James’ Park, for anyone who wishes to watch them again. A word of warning – It isn’t pretty!
Next up, Chris Hughton talks of the disappointing defeat, and he accentuates the positives of the performance before stating that the team need to bounce back against Fulham on Saturday with the aim of improving our indifferent home form.
Finally, Sam Allardyce explains how he nullified Newcastle as an attacking threat and lauded the ‘surprise element’ that he employed in order to counter Andy Carroll and our fearsome attack.
The Blackburn game has gone now, but Newcastle have the chance to put things right on Saturday when they host Fulham. Andy Carroll will be in for another tough time as he will no doubt end up facing Brade Hangeland in the Fulham defence.
Onwards and upwards, as they say!
