28.02.2015… Aston Villa (h)…

Newcastle United 1 Aston Villa 0

St. James’ Park…… Saturday February 28th… 3pm

Attendance: 51,573

Ticket: £29Programme: £3

Another awful game but three very important points…

If there is a plus side, it’s that we’ve hopefully helped the Vile on their way. I won’t go on and on about why as it’s getting boring, I just want to see them rot. If it came down to an either/or, I’d rather Sunderland stayed up. When we came straight back, large sections of the press underplayed Chris Hughton’s achievement, let’s see if this lot can manage 43k and 102 points…

Nice to see that they’re still being creative with the bed sheets too…

2.15pm: Inside St. James’ Park

Anyway, I guess I should mention the game for once. The usual unimaginative dross, barely beating the team currently second bottom of the league…

The first half just sort of happened, Villa having marginally the better of it before we scored with our first attack…

The second half wasn’t any better; it’s coming to something when you’re wishing that the game would end so that you can get home. We don’t enjoy anymore, we endure; week after week, month after month, year after year, we endure…

Surely we deserve better than this, or would that suggest those ‘unrealistic expectations’ that we allegedly possess…?
