Man City 0 - 0 Newcastle, 11/11/06

A rare early kickoff meant i was full of energy when the game started at 9pm Malaysian time.. Fully anticipating a no holds barred encounter between 2 teams badly in need of a win, i was left fuming when the first half was over. Chances were few and far between with the game not even flowing at a decent rate. Bore draw was written all over it. Second half came and went and suprisingly Newcastle played the best football of their season in the last 5 minutes of the second half when chances after chances were created but no one could put it away. Dyer came on as a substitute and his trademark burst and short passes injected the much needed drive to win matches. Sadly his team mates were as determined as ever to NOT show any determination in winning games!

Richards brushes off Milner

Starting a half fit Shola rather then Rossi or Luque just shows that Roeder has totally lost the plot. With Luque now publicly stating he wants a January move, we'll be lamenting what could have been come May when we are still short of strikers and Luque picked up where he left and bangs more goals in La Liga. The January transfer window cant come soon enuff, it'll be Roeder's last chance salon to prove his worth and get the magpies some really good defensive signings, failure to do so and relegation is a possibility with his name tarnished beyond repair..
