Newcastle 6 (Six) - Aston Villa 0: Murph's View

In lieu of the preview, which I was struggling to find time to write (and given what just happened, I'm half-glad I didn't bother!) I thought I would give my views on the game that can no longer be mentioned.

What the frying-duck can you say about such a disastrous defeat to a former Championship side? 'Oh dear,' 'never mind,' 'Marlon Harewood?'

Villa looked devoid of ideas and whilst this saw us through many an away game last season, facing a side playing their first top-flight game at home in 12 months, such ineptitude was always going to cause us severe issues.

A special mention goes to John 'bad back' Carew and Ashley 'I whinge more than my missus' Young for their sulky and half-arsed approach. Rumour has it that the first trip to Earth by extra-terrestrial life will include the re-delivery to Newcastle United of the Nike football that big JC hammered into orbit whilst attempting to impersonate a penalty taker.

Villa looked short on options up-front and shaky at the back, with Emile Heskey a Capello-esque last ditch attempt at comedy, and Habib Beye a token gesture to give young Clark a chance to shower by himself before the bigger boys returned to the dressing room.

Prior to the game, Kevin Mac stated he was unsure about whether he wished to take the job full time. After today, one would assume he'd be rather stupid to take on a Martin O'Neill legacy that has left us desperately short of quality.

As stated in the forums, there will be only one set of supporters more worried than us tonight, and that is those who follow the bubble blowers of West Ham.

On the flip-flop side however, it's early days, plenty more games to play...so enjoy!

I disagree with those who are saying Ash Young didnt do much. For me, he was the best of a bad bunch. He was the only one who looked like he gave a Shooot. Carew let us down, he was woeful, awful touch, awful attitude towards the match. He should take note of Andy Carroll, the lad was immense, won everything in the air and ran our defence ragged. Not just because of this, but i feel we definitely need another striker. Defensively we were awful, i think Clark was out of his depth today, cant blame the lad tho. Will be interesting to see what side is put out against Vienna. Hurry up collins and carlos!! Gabby we need u!lol

agreed AndyFC, he put in some great crosses in the right position, not his fault if our strikers don't realise you need to be in the box to score (or even shoot). Think he gets a bad press from some Villa fans, not much he can do if those ahead of him are just strollign around. Carew and Heskey... wtf is that all about? I don't think Fonz is ready at his age but I'd play him ahead of those two wallies any day!

Dont get it when people blame strikers aswell, the score was 6-0?? Our defence should get the blame and midfield, our attackers were poor but not their fault we were so bad at the back.
