Sorry for the radio silence over the last forty eight hours. Have been at the LibDem conference and the hotel couldn’t get the internet connection to work. The things a boy has to do…
Anyway, the new team is now confirmed with Steve Clarke’s arrival from Chelsea. I am delighted Kevin Keen will be staying. I am looking forward to Saturday more than I have looked forward to a game for ages. On the face of it, it’s a great time to be playing Newcastle – unless of course they re-appoint Keegan before then, but that looks unlikely.
I haven’t seen any of the highlights from the West Ham game, but from what I have heard Di Michele looked very lively and Ilunga had a solid debut at left back. It’s also said (whisper it) that Boa Morte didn’t do too badly. But all that apart, it is a game we should never have lost. Careless play costs points.
I suspect Zola will not have been very impressed by the defending. Upson in particular, I gather, had a shocker. Although having said that, what does Zola know about defending? 🙂
