Twitter has erupted since it was announced that Steve McClaren has been fired less than an hour ago, with fans pleased Newcastle have finally made a decision – which only took them six days.
As usual there are some really funny tweets – from some Newcastle fans and even a Sunderland fan – who accuses us of cheating on their way of winning derbies – by appointing a new manager just before it takes place.
Well – you live and learn as they say.
Steve McClaren – even he couldn’t watch – it was so bad
