Sammy Ameobi: Says team are sorry for performance

More than 2,000 Newcastle fans made the trip to St Mary's but saw a less than inspiring display as the Saints claimed a 2-0 win.

"We can't apologise enough," Ameobi told Newcastle's site.

"It was an unacceptable display and if I had travelled all the way down to watch that I would be devastated.

"Hopefully we can get back on the right track at Stoke on Wednesday night and give them something to cheer about."

Ameobi admitted that they could offer few excuses for the display.

"Everyone is so disappointed, we weren't good enough and that is hard to take," he said.

"We've got so many injuries and had another really busy week as well with the Europa League.

"But that is not an excuse for the performance we put in out there today. We were too sloppy at times.

"We are slowly creeping down the table and we have to start getting results as soon as possible to get us back towards where we want, and need, to be."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
