Four word report

Newcastle Utd 0 - 1 Manchester City

Saturday's match report is brought to you in conjunction with my mother, whose four word description says everything you need to know about our gutless capitulation to a Manchester City side largely regarded as poor.

Roeder's decision to leave Milner and Sibierski on the bench was mystifying and frustrating in equal measure, despite the fact that the former has looked our best attacking option, and the latter might have won the high balls we kept pumping forward only for Martins to be beaten in the air.

The combination of Butt and Parker at home is simply not creative enough, with Captain Scott barely doing enough to merit a place on the pitch, let alone the armband he continues to wear despite the presence of at least one candidate (Given) who cares more for the team.

I'll bet Sheffield United can't wait for next Saturday, when the good ship Newcastle comes in to town bringing three points to all in danger of relegation. (The big concern is that if we could still do with a couple of wins just to make sure we'll be around to give mediocre Premiership teams three points next season.)

Anyway, without further ado, take it away mum...
