Newcastle United had two big games this weekend, both of which ended in loss.

Eddie Howe and the men’s team were the first to welcome Manchester City at St James’ Park. The game was tremendously entertaining, but the Magpies lost 3-2 after Pep Guardiola’s side scored a late winner through Oscar Bobb.

Toon fans were disappointed with the outcome. They saw their team sit back and attempt to defend their lead in the second half, only to be ripped apart by the returning Kevin De Bruyne.

Newcastle is now tenth in the Premier League, as Chelsea went above of them with a 1-0 win over Fulham.

On Sunday, it was the turn of the Newcastle women, who were defeated by a Manchester side.

In the FA Cup, the Lasses faced Women’s Super League side Manchester United, who were backed by a fantastic traveling support at Leigh Sports Village. However, they were eliminated from the competition after losing 5-0 against Becky Langley’s team.

Two massive games. Two losses. Co-owner Amanda Staveley, on the other hand, is filled with pride and has sent a message to supporters.

As Newcastle men and women lose, Amanda Staveley says, ‘it wasn’t our weekend.’
Staveley took to her official Instagram account to show her pride in both teams, proclaiming, “We are united.”

“Very proud of both our Men’s and Women’s team performances,” she added. It wasn’t our weekend, but we’ll return stronger. I’m also overwhelmed by the love and support of our incredible fans, some of whom left at 6 a.m. this morning! “We Are One.”

 

Despite setbacks, Newcastle should be proud.

Even though both games were lost, both teams should be proud of themselves.

Getting to an FA Cup match against Manchester United was an accomplishment in and of itself for the women. Given the chasm between the two sides, it was always going to be difficult.

The number of supporters who made the trip was enormous, and it will only fuel the club’s ambition to join the WSL as soon as possible so that they can play against teams of Man United’s caliber on a regular basis.

The men, on the other hand, took on the best team in the world right now and fell short. It was nearly a legendary triumph in black and white, but Howe’s team just couldn’t hold on.

There have been numerous fan complaints, but context is essential. Eddie Howe’s tactical error did not account for the defeat. It was the inability to influence the game from the bench, combined with the mental exhaustion of trying to cling on to what you had.

But we gave Manchester City a scare and could have beaten them on another day. Saturday’s defeat was heartbreaking, but our day will come.
