When manager Alan Pardew substituted Yohan Cabaye in the second half yesterday – it was met by boos and jeers from the long suffering Newcastle fans, who at the start of the season even thought we had a good team.
Nile Ranger – has a blast at some Newcastle fans
Our Newcastle players again wilted from a winning position, to give a team without an away win all season their very first win, so you can hardly expect the Geordie fans to be over the moon with the result yesterday, and after the game there was some withering criticism of the beleaguered Newcastle manager Alan Pardew – who lost a lot of support yesterday.
This is some of what Nile Ranger tweeted after the game:
“Certain fans need to not come and support the team… coming out to boo us… stay at home… don’t need your boos… say no more!” “To all the fans. You are not forced to buy season tickets. Or pay our wages. Please remember that.”
“If you are loyal fans… be with us… when we are out there on the field. Be the 12th man… Don’t come and boo. That ain’t going to help anyone.” ‘Team is going through rough patch… last thing we need is fans against us.”
“We are team. You boo one player, you are booing all of us.’”
Unfortunately the rough patch has now lasted almost three months, and Newcastle fans are the most passionate in the game – but that cuts both ways.
And when are lads seemed to throw the game away in those last 25 minutes or so yesterday, there’s bound to be frustration, disappointment and some anger from our fans.
That’s the way things are.
But we also have to keep supporting the lads, and even though it was probably our worst result of the season – but certainly not the worst performance – that was two weeks ago at Brighton – we have to keep supporting the lads – there’s no doubt about that.
But it’s also been a very painful season so far for Newcastle fans everywhere.
