Newcastle United 1 AFC Bournemouth 3

St. James’ Park… Saturday March 5th… 3pm

Attendance: 52,107

Ticket: £33 – Programme: £3

It’s the Wednesday after, Steve McClaren’s still in charge and I’ve pretty much accepted our fate…

What can you say? I guess that the reality is that our away finally followed us back to St. James’ Park. Today was a chance for our home support to witness the level of commitment from out team what the away following have been enduring for the last two years…

Pre-Match: Outside St. James’…

I’m not going to dwell on the game. Bournemouth were by far the better side, although they didn’t really have to do a lot. In essence, they just waited for us to run out of ideas, give them the ball back and then capitalised on it…

Second Half: 3-1 Down, and a Half-Empty Stadium…

Conclusions? We’re going down, or maybe we’re not, but in reality, who really cares? This was just another reminder that the whole club is broken, that we’re supporting a memory…

But football goes on, so I do to. Next weekend is going to be a ‘title chaser v relegation contender’ special. I’m off to Villa Park on Sunday for Aston Villa v Spurs, then it’s the King Power on Monday night for the next instalment in this car crash of a season…
