That was a tough game for me.  OTOH... Spurs.  OTOH part of me wants to see Bruce fall on his ass if for no other reason to embarrass Ashley.  Newcastle had a sensible game plan today that was both obvious and shouldn't have been enough but Spurs played like they were drugged.  I wouldn't worry about the non-call - there was a couple of odd moments out there and I think they more or less evened out.  

It was an oddly entertaining game though.  Loved the Newcastle goal but assumed at the very least Spurs would get the equalizer but then time dragged on and I started thinking "they could do this" and then it got tense.  Finally looked at the clock and realized baring a miracle Newcastle was going to get a point and then it was all smiles as I saw out the last ten minutes or so.  

It was a very odd game for me as well as i honestly wasn't bothered , ashley has drained me of my love for all things NUFC, i hate steve bruce because he is nowt more than ashleys puppet.  But as we were winning and playing well my heart kicked in and wanted us to hang on to a win.

 Normally NUFC concede  a late goal to fuck it but, i felt joy when we won but then back down to earth as like so many times under ashley reality set in..meh !! 4th bottom is his target...the fucking fat greedy cockney twat has fucked this club.

Alan Shearer blames Michael Owen for Newcastle's Premier League relegation back in 2009, according to former team-mate Michael Bridges.

Owen's new autobiography, Reboot - My Life, My Time, has lifted the lid on a 10-year spat between the pair since their time together at St James' Park.

In the book, former Liverpool and England forward Owen describes joining Newcastle from Real Madrid in 2005 to partner Shearer up front as a 'downward step'

Bridges, who played with both during his career, believes Owen has not only "disrespected the club massively" but also claims Shearer, who was interim manager at the time of their 2009 relegation, blames Owen's attitude and lack of effort for the club's demise.

 

When Alan (Shearer) got the job, he kind of held Michael Owen accountable for part of the relegation," Bridges told Optus Sports.

"And that also comes from a guy called Paul Ferris, who was the physio at the time.

"He said for a man that has played only 58 Premier League games for Newcastle - scored 26 goals, taken $22m in wages out of the club - to say he didn't want to be there, didn't enjoy it ... I think he's disrespected the club massively.

"Ferris said in the last six months of Owen's contract they couldn't even get him to play in games because he was more worried about the next deal that was coming.

So, his heart wasn't in it and Alan has never spoken about it but he holds him accountable.

"And now it's going to be coming out in the book and he's really upset a lot of Newcastle fans."
