Newcastle hit the woodwork twice. Anything you want to say about the missed West Ham penalty applies there.

There is insufficient improvement over 90 minutes from the west ham game to any subsequent one not to suggest Unsworth was the one that turned the corner "got back to basics" and Allardyce has benefited from it.

I am not for one minute arguing that Unsworth should have been given more time. Allardyce will, 100%, perform better over the rest of the season.
But i just don't like to hear the digs levelled at Unsworth when i think he's the one that actually turned the ship around.

I honestly don't believe anyone has taken a dig at Unsworth, quite the opposite, he stepped in again and gave 110% I have the utmost respect for him as a dyed in the wool blue who handled himself with great dignity during his caretaker spell and I have no doubt that one day he will make a great manager but he isn't the finished product for the Premier League and we would have got "snotted" at Anfield if he had still been in charge.
