As you may or may not know, it hasn't been a stellar week for the club. Losing the derby is one thing - yet another PR nightmare in the form of #PressGate2013 is a second. All of that piled on top of very low expectations for the Manchester City match should have perhaps made it hurt less when the Toon were downed by 2 goals by Manchester Blue's reserves. It didn't.
We looked back to the weekend briefly, took a look at PressGate and some quotes from a Northeast football legend with regard to the bans and rolled it around a bit about comparisons to Totalitarian regimes (we have now collected Pyongyang Upon Tyne and the USSR). Through all that, we looked in the crystal ball at Davide Santon, Massadio Haïdara and Paul Dummett, ran through the defensive injury list for the weekend and discussed #TiredBodies. It's here for your ears - Episode 21 of Coming Home Podcastle.
