Matchroom massacre of the miserable mercenaries

Matchroom massacre of the miserable mercenaries

Following the thumping of Darlington's Under 11s side and the sneaked 1-0 win versus Huddersfield's Mixed Martial Arts team, The 'Hughton Heroes' were battered in a fashion beyond embarassing. A 'team' with a combined wage bill approaching £1m a week were given the total runaround against *shock horror* players with pride.

We started with the following 11 clad in custard cream:

Krul; Beye, S Taylor, Coloccini, Enrique; Gutierrez, Barton, Smith, Duff; Nolan; Martins.

To me, in the unlikely event no-one leaves, this wouldn't be too far away from the strongest eleven come August 8th. The possibilities of the likes of Bassong and Ranger being involved hardly adds a lot to the line up - one up front v Orient? F*cking hell.

We went 2-0 down fairly quickly. Smith and a dubious Thornton penalty did the early damage, despite chances for Beye and Nolan. Barton dragged one back from the spot following a foul on Martins, before their keeper Jones pulled off a great save from Nolan.

Half time came and went with the usual raft of pre-season substitutions. However the unravelling soon came with goals from McGleish, Mkandawire, Jarvis and Harry Baker consigning us to the ultimate humiliation.

Plus points to take? It can't get *much* worse. Also just about our whole squad got some exposure to the knackering - Forster, Tozer, Lough, Geremi, Kadar, Xisco, Guthrie, LuaLua and Carroll were all subbed on at various intervals.

Negatives? Two weeks today we'll potentially be unravelling on the BBC. Oh joys...

Alright there Chazzle - still stuck in Hull or have you moved somewhere yet where they don't still eat their young?

Dont worry you will be back in the Premiership within another season at the most. IMO the best thing that could happen to your club would be to sell as many of the overpaid and under committed end of the squad as possible and rebuild using cheaper young and hungry players to play alongside/around the "big names" left that are prepared to roll their sleeves up and work their guts out to get the club back where it belongs. I am a wolves supporter - but I genuinely wish you all the best for next season

Cheers Astral - unfortunately getting 14 players on £50k or more off the books is proving to be far more difficult than originally imagined.

Actually this was a GOOD result. It will be a massive wake up call for all those arrogant tosers in the team who think they can just turn up. If their motivation is to stay or to leave, they will realise their own potential earning power will take a huge hit with anymore displays of ineptitude. Fortunately this happened in a friendly with nothing at stake, so best to have gotten it out the way now.

Cocky how? I defy you to find a Newcastle fan who honestly thought we shouldn't have been relegated.
