The REAL reason behind Newcastle’s slump

Forget the players. Forget Alan Pardew. Even forget  Mike Ashley’s debilitating lack of investment. The real reason behind Newcastle United’s slump in form was revealed over the weekend.

S Sun Apology

After Pardew’s comments blaming the local media for Newcastle’s latest troubles on the pitch, regional newspaper the Sunday Sun decided to issue an apology to their readership. Accepting full responsibility for the club’s horrendous recent run of results, the newspaper also held themselves accountable for “headbutting David Meyler too.”

The Toon Army on Twitter have reacted positively to the sarcastic headline.

Fans of the Magpies have grown tired of Pardew consistently blaming anything other than himself for the club’s troubles, with the Newcastle Evening Chronicle even producing a random excuse generator to aid the manager in future interviews and press conferences.

The “apology” came after the Toon Army publicly expressed their anger with Pardew at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday, with the latest defeat hardly strengthening the manager’s case.

However, Newcastle fans can now relax their campaign. The Sunday Sun have finally accepted responsibility for the club’s troubles this season.
