Newcastle's Butt stunned by Portsmouth humiliaton

Newcastle United midfielder Nicky Butt was left in a daze by Saturday's home humiliation by Portsmouth.

"I can't remember the two goals after the first one - and I'm not making excuses," said the midfielder.

"Were they individual errors? All I know is the first one was a 'worldie', but if the second two were bad defending, it's hard to point the finger at one person.

"When we got the goal, I thought maybe something could happen.

"But we didn't capitalise. We just wanted to get to half-time and then try to change it.

"You can't explain it, it's just shock. We've not had that for God knows how long now.

"It's a while since I've been involved in a game like that.

"There was one at Man United when we were getting beaten 3-0 at half-time by Tottenham but we came back and won 5-3."
