McClaren was better than Bruce, at least we had some possession.
<laugh> McLaren was truly awful and basically got us relegated! We had a decent squad with some quality players like Sissoko and Wijnaldum and he turned them into s***. The worst manager we've had in my lifetime. Carver a close second.
I'd only have Carver second based on the fact he wasn't even a manager. Absolutely ridiculous how badly we collapsed when he took charge. But both far worse than Bruce.

Kinnear was pretty poor but at least his press conferences were interesting!

Only just seen the penalty.

Not a penalty, but 100% a second yellow for the Fulham defender for the shirt pull outside the box.
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

From NUFC.com:-

Fulhams' appeal against the dismissal of Joachim Andersen during Saturday's 1-1 draw at SJP was successful - and the Danish defender won't now serve a one match ban.

By implication, that discredits the VAR system that was ultimately used to decide Andersen's guilt - and award Newcastle the penalty from which they salvaged a point. Who says we're always unlucky?

VAR should have told the ref that it was a shirt pull outside the box and to award a FK, and give Andersen a second yellow.

Yeah thats bollocks, the ref blew for a pen, VAR advised him to look on the screen and he decided he couldn't overturn based on what he could see, so to say VAR decided is a bit ridiculous.

If anything, it backs up VAR.
