Hopefully John Carver will be put in temporary charge.

With Joe Kinnear as assistant. This is Newcastle we are talking about so don't rule it out.
Eric Black deserves a turn.

Arsenal will go above us tonight but we have four games in hand on them.
And our goal difference is +13 which is phenomenal. Only Spurs Liverpool and City have better.

I mean really, did anyone think it would end up any other way than this?

Carragher and Neville have been comparing Emile Smith Rowe's calves to Jack's, well he's not in that class, but footballing wise the kid does look a good prospect.

Can we bring back Glenn Whelan just to score a penalty.

Why doesn't Grealish take the penalties?
No goal or assist in that 3-3 either.

Now that’s a unique angle to have a go at Grealish.

It was in humour come on now!
But overall he could have taken that pen if he wanted.
Anyway he's still class so not really complaining!
I've thought for a while that Jack should be on pens and I'd give him free kicks around the box. It would certainly help his relatively low goal returns for such a high profile player.

I fear this is Steve’s last game in charge.  His team have given up that was appalling from Clark.

It'll be Mark Hughes to replace him won't it as the death by a thousand cuts continues?

Rumours that a ship has just docked on the Tyne carrying Russian built weapons grade cabbage launchers powerful enough to hoy it over them massive empty stands and accurate enough to pinpoint the Bruce bonce at 200 meters.

Looking forward to Saturday and Bruce suffering another Villa Park massacre - correction - brassica.

We gave as good as we got and got into ourselves some decent opportunities but that little bit of confidence has ebbed away - that happens when you are on a run like we are. The only way it comes back is with a couple of victories.

"We always knew we entering a really difficult run of games. To play Arsenal, Leicester, Liverpool and Manchester City we always knew it was going to be difficult against these top teams.

"You have seen their [the players] approach. We are disappointed because we have been caught trying to get forward. Two passes and they are in on our goal.

"That is something we have to learn from and understand. The reason we have been defending deep was to avoid situations like that. We have to get the balance right and we will keep working on it."

On his own position, he added: "I am trying to do the best I possibly can as always but you will have to ask others about that."

Trying to work out why we are quoting post match comments from Bruce. I don't get it.
