Normally, of course, people do not punch horses. When a football fan does, a logical assumption is that it would be the most embarrassing moment of his club's season.
But that wasn't the case.
Perhaps it was the 3-0 loss to Sunderland, our heaviest top-flight derby defeat since 1966.
To me it was the 6-0 thrashing by Liverpool, statistically our worst result at home for 87 years. The worst Newcastle performance I have EVER seen, and I made my first visit to St James' Park back in 1967.
I made my mind up on April 27th 2013 (Newcastle 0 Liverpool 6) that Alan Pardew was the WORST Newcastle manager I had ever seen at the club, even worse than Dinnis, McGarry, Lee and yes . even Joe Kinnear . although that was a very close call.
He hasn't got a clue about tactics and dead-ball kicks; he has this weird belief that everything French is in fashion; and his Mike Ashley arse-kissing . well, the less said the better.
So many Pardew quotes defy belief.
There was the one last season: "We need two games a week because I can only pick 11 players." Only to backtrack seven days later: "European games are killing our season, and Europe is well down my list of priorities, far too many games."
We haven't scored from a corner in TWO YEARS and last month Pardew said: "We don't have tall strikers and that is a problem with corner kicks, but perhaps we should work on them."
Suggesting they don't!
Man Utd scored from 17 corners last season, and are Rooney and Van Persie tall? No . they just WORK on corners!
Then Pardew said after Benfica knocked us out of Europe: "Thank God we don't have Europe next season!", then at the start of this campaign: "I can see us pushing for Europe this season."
And now he refuses to talk to the Chronicle and the Journal.
It seems the last throws of a desperate man.
