How Mike Ashley can get away with this latest stunt is ridiculous

Another home defeat for the Toon with another two goals conceded. We had never started a season losing our first four home games in a row, but that stat has well and truly gone. We are in dire straits.
Jamie Vardy converted a softly awarded penalty before Harry Maguire sealed our fate late in the second half, as the England heroes put us to the sword. I don’t even remember the last time we had an England hero, that tells its own story.

Mike Ashley was in the crowd We had an extra guest in the stadium on Saturday afternoon in the rotund shape of Mike Ashley. The Newcastle Utd owner has had the nerve to show his face at two games in a row now, after he sneaked into watch us at Palace last week.

Football a non-contact sport?

There's been loads of talk of 'the stamp', 'the slap' and 'Joseph Barton'.


I'll keep my opinion of these straight to the point: - 
Song should have been off. Disgrace.
Gervinho rightly got his marching orders.
I don't blame Joey for being incensed and dragging a cheat back to his feet, I'd do the exact same thing. However, he did go down too easy (in his own words) which I would never do, not nice to see. However even saying that, 99% of other players (especially Arsenal) would have done the same, so I ain't that bothered. It's the modern game at the highest level unfortunately. Blame FIFA.


But i'd just like to make the point that every where I read and hear 'experts' say that the Gervinho incident was actually a penalty.....because there was 'contact'.


So? So what if Tiote slightly brushed him? DID, HE, FOUL, HIM..? 


One of the ways you can foul someone is if you trip them up, deliberately or even by accident. Did he trip him up? Kick him? Push him over? No. He slightly grazed his shin-pad. So why is it a foul? Because he made contact? Total bollocks.


So Football is a totally non-contact sport now is it? If so, its dead.


The tw@t dived. End of.
