Brighton Bombshell! – Brighton 1 Newcastle United 0 (report, highlights, interviews…)

January 29th, 2012 | 10 Comments |

Venue: Amex Stadium, Brighton
Date: 28th January 2012
Kick Off: 5.15pm
Referee: Lee Probert

Quite simply, this was a game United should not have lost. Even with the cautious tactics employed by Pardew we were clearly a class above, dominated 75% of the game and had a penalty appeal for a blatant handball turned down. With a bit more adventure and somebody up front who actually had a clue, we could and should have won this comfortably. Instead, we were dumped out of the cup by a fluke deflected goal and a Brighton team who didn’t get into the game until the last 15 minutes. I’m beginning to think Sir Kevin Keegan was right about the club being cursed.

I watched the game on ESPN. The high point was watching “Gully’s Girls” the Brighton Cheerleaders jumping about, the low point was having to listen to Chris Waddle – the only geordie I know who pronounces “pace” as “pies” – still, he did used to work in a sausage factory so it may be some kind of obsession – but I digress.
