Yeah, heard about that one. Got the big old "yeah, we totally screwed the pooch, sorry, but nothing changes" already. What a freaking joke. The estimated cost of poor referring decisions this week to Newcastle is over 4 million.
The decisions that robbed west ham and Newcastle should never have gone to VAR. in fact VAR is being overused and now we are seeing the affects of it, much like replay in college football. I think the PL are completely reactive with VAR. they make a mistake one week and then they overcompensate the next week and inevitably make another mistake. They need to temporarily suspend VAR until they can figure out what they are doing because they do not know how to properly interpret video footage.

Very true. One year under Bruce we got a completely undeserved point after getting a dumb handball call go our way for a penalty in like the 94th minute, because EVERYTHING was handball at that point.

Absolutely shambolic and can only have been worse if Newcastle didn't earn the penalty and lost the effing game. IDGAF if they've only lost 1 game, as they've only won 1, too. Howe absolutely must be on the hot seat. You can't get the team up for a game against effing BOURNEMOUTH? You can't beat BOURNEMOUTH at home? JFC, what an effing shambles.

Ah, a good old fashioned 10-man beat down. Just what the doctor called for when needing a win. Even got to chat with an English Newcastle fan who noticed I was watching at the coffee shop. I was just getting a 1st-hand account of the CL game against Juventus way back when he got called to pick up his brew. All the fans in that game were so confused because they were both wearing black and white striped jerseys!

And a full beatdown of a full-strength Brentford team. Hard to lose when the goalie gifts you one and they score an OG on top of it. Newcastle are in form suddenly. Let's down the Red Devils next.

The wins just keep coming now. Hopefully we get another against Spurs. And hopefully that dirtball Kane blows out a knee--as many players as he's injured, he deserves it.

Howe-way the lads! Rocking and rolling at this point, playing with house money. Hell, if the injuries clear up and they bring in a player or two in January, the Mags might be ahead of schedule.
