Sadly, Bryan Robson is facing the sack after Portsmouth's win over relegated Sunderland and Birmingham's draw at Everton ... and his side taking a hammering at St James' Park.
Robson: 'I've been praising the lads for the way we have been playing in games. Performances have been good and they have been very unfortunate not to get anything or get more out of games. But today, we didn't deserve anything out of the game. In the first half, for whatever reason, we were very poor.
'We didn't compete, we didn't show any energy levels, we didn't pass the ball well. It was a really poor performance in that first half. If I'd had 11 substitutes, I could have put them all on.
'They only thing they have done today is in the second half when I made the substitutions, at least they played for a bit of pride and started to play a bit of football.
'That's all I can take out of the game because the way the other results have gone, that more or less puts us down today.'
