Even though Siem de Jong missed a fantastic opportunity yesterday in the home game against Villa, he still got a warm round of applause after he was replaced by Ayoze Perez soon after the miss.
Siem is a very experienced and very honest player and this is how he reacted on Twitter after the game and why the Geordie fans like him so much.
