'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Who Are These 'Foreigners'?

David Connolly struck home the spot-kick that knocked Newcastle United out of the Carling in the 88th minute. But there was only one team in it, and Graeme Souness was quick to point that out.

Souness: 'I am most definitely angry. We have let down every single person who has travelled from Tyneside, and I can understand their reaction. I cannot complain at that. I am a big boy and I know if I was a supporter who had spent whatever they had done to watch this game then I would be unhappy at watching a team play the way they did, especially in the first 45 minutes.

'It's been a long time since one of my teams was outplayed like that. We were poor and the game should have been over by half-time. They were totally dominant, and although the penalty was a wee bit unfair, we are not complaining about it too much because the best team won.

'To the foreign lads we pointed out to them that cup football in this country is not like it is on the Continent where it is not taken as seriously. We told them it would be a hard game. We went over that before they went out there, but they didn't heed the warning.

'The one thing a player should be able to guarantee is that he gives 100% when he crosses the white line but not every one of my players did that tonight.'
