'Boring,' 'Nothing club' - Jamie Carragher's scathing attack on Newcastle United following Aston Villa defeat
Jamie Carragher was talking on Sky Sports following Newcastle United’s defeat to Aston Villa.
Jamie Carragher launched a scathing assessment of Newcastle United following the Magpies’ defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday night.
Steve Bruce’s side are without a win in 10 games after they were comfortably seen off thanks to goals from Ollie Watkins and Bertrand Traore.
"I mentioned how impressed I have been with Aston Villa, not just tonight but all season," said Carragher.

"It's the complete opposite with Newcastle. It feels like a club that's just nothing at this moment, just sleep-walking into another relegation dog fight.
"Twice they have gone down under Mike Ashley. At this moment they have a bit of a gap between them and Fulham but I would say Fulham and West Brom are in much better form than Newcastle.
"So poor yet again. You never feel like they are going to score a goal. You never feel like they are going to keep a clean sheet.
"There's no doubt the supporters don't like the team, they don't like the owner, they don't like the manager.
"Steve Bruce is getting criticism at the moment. He's the manager and the buck stops with him, but until Newcastle get new ownership, we're going to be seeing the same thing.
"A team who are just drifting, doing nothing, becoming a nothing club and that's what Newcastle have never been.
"There's always been some sort of spark, some sort of interest, some sort of enthusiasm when you watch them play.
"Now it's just boring."
Newcastle are seven points above the relegation zone having played a game more than 18th-place Fulham.
