Did that just happen?
Humiliating, demoralising, gut-wrenching, shocking, awful, heartbreaking and desperately disappointing.
Those are just some of the words to describe Newcastle UnitedÃ¢ÂÂs painful 5-1 hammering against Championship side Birmingham City.
I mean, where did that come from?
We knew it wouldnÃ¢ÂÂt be a cakewalk but 5-1? Howay man!
Not only is it the end of yet another chance of silverware out the window and into the dustbin but just what type of psycological effect will it have on the kids that so many of us were singing the praises of just a day before the cup game?
LetÃ¢ÂÂs just hope that Paul Huntington, Matty Pattison, Peter Ramage and Steven Taylor can shrug that one off and be positive.
But letÃ¢ÂÂs be honest, while the non-performances of the kids stuck in the mind of most fans last night, they werenÃ¢ÂÂt alone.
In fact everybody apart from James Milner were garbage and that hurts to say.
However, while we stumble through the next couple of days perhaps it is a time to highlight a couple of points.
Firstly you cannot be too hard on the youngsters.
All of them, including Ramage and Taylor, are still learning their trade.
Everybody makes mistakes in their job and unfortunately everybody made theirs together all in one game against the Brummies.
Secondly, is booing the team going shake a response out of the lads?
I donÃ¢ÂÂt think it is.
And at 3-1 down with 10 men not enough of the 26,000 fans got behind the team in the hour of need.
More worryingly some people headed for the exit gates.
Come on! It canÃ¢ÂÂt always be milk and honey even though I appreciate many peopleÃ¢ÂÂs patience was stretched to the limit.
So where on earth do punch drunk United go from here?
Well, basically they go back to the scene of the crime at SJP and they have to take their frustrations out on West Ham.
ItÃ¢ÂÂs all about pride restoration now for Glenn Roeder and his team.
And instead of a team talk all the manager needs to do is perhaps pin up the papers on the dressing room wall after the Spurs game and the Birmingham game and simply ask what his players pefer.
We all know the answer to that one.
LetÃ¢ÂÂs hope the real Newcastle United stands up on Saturday.
And if they donÃ¢ÂÂtÃ¢ÂÅ Ã¢ÂÅ Ã¢ÂÅ Ã¢ÂÅ Ã¢ÂÅ Ã¢ÂÅ Ã¢ÂÅ Ã¢ÂÅ Ã¢ÂÅ Ã¢ÂÅ well.
