Geordie Fans Explode On Twitter After We Trounce Spurs 5-1

6:18 pm, Sunday, May 15th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 20 Comments

Newcastle fans took to Twitter after the magnificent display from our lads this afternoon, but there’s also some anger at those running the club, for leaving the woeful Steve McClaren in place so long.

The way we played today if we were in the PL next season we would be challenging for the top four – but now the team will have to be dismantled – but the players are also responsible for this terrible season for not turning up to the away games and not being bothered too many times.

If Rafa stays then Newcastle United will be back in business in a big big way – but if he goes – he will attract a lot of attention with this result – we will be in the wilderness.

    Be careful in the Toon tonight, might get injured by an exploding Mag.

    They can go off at any time. Be warned.

    Ed, I don’t see how that collection of tweets constitutes an “explosion” – exercise in hyperbole one thinks.

    37 F**CKIN games to late!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bloody annoying sicked off – Just goes to show what we could of done if the players put their minds to it.

    And playing like that just shows the Atmosphere that can be generated

    My MOM was Townsend who in the last ten minutes tried to get onto everything to score against his old club – in fact they all played well

    oh but!!!!!!

    And aren’t the mackems sad hiring a plane to fly some daft banner around the Park

    Ashley out!!!!!!!

    Biggest idiot in world football..disgrace to the club. Charnley better evacuate Newcastle….

    If Rafa is not there in the Premiership….the club is finished…

  • 6 beefman13 // May 15, 2016 at 6:25 PM

    Yes Ed we took Spurs to the cleaners, shame it is down in Huddersfield or is it Burton.

    It just makes it all a bigger letdown, Rafa is our only hope for a bit of salvation.

    After watching the Toon through this season and having not won a copper coin on the buggers including today, it aint going to be supertoon from me, they have to earn that, they have been awful and gutless for 8/10th of this season,its just to surreal for words this football club.

    Here’s a question:

    Do people genuinely think Rafa will stay at the club? Not whether we want him to stay or not, but honestly whether we think he will given the way our club is run and notwithstanding the fact that we are now a 2nd tier club.

    Would be interested in people’s thoughts on this.

    ruddy
    you cant trust ashley and carr to do the best for the club,so you would have to say no……as i believe he would like to stay.

  • 11 Shadow_Shearer // May 15, 2016 at 6:32 PM

    Half of the players would have tried extra harder today, in hope of getting signed by another premiership team. Cough cough sissoko!

  • 12 Hail Wor Ashley // May 15, 2016 at 6:34 PM

    Top 4 a bit of a stretch, Ed.

    The driver of today’s performance was a group of wantaways ‘showing off’ and no pressure.

    OOT:

    Krul – £5m

    Janmaat – £7m
    Colo – release
    Saylor – release

    Tiote – £5m
    Saivet – £3m
    Gini – £12-15m
    Sissoko – £12-15m
    Cabella – £6m
    Thauvin – £7m
    Gouffran – £1m

    Riviere – £1m
    Cisse – £4m
    Mitrovic – £10m

    £75m – £15m aside for wages and £60m for 8-10 players.

    Rafa in charge and still have:

    ______________Darlow______________
    Anita__Mbemba_____Lascelles__Dummet
    _________Shelvey___Colback
    Townsend______SDJ________Perez
    ______________Armstrong

    Elliot, Mbabu, Sterry, Aarons

    Straight back up.

    HTL!

    I don’t know Ruddy. It could possibly mean a good sign if he does stay but like you, I’m not convinced we have much of a future under Ashley.

  • 14 The Newcastle Armchair // May 15, 2016 at 6:36 PM

    End this is becoming more like a red top newspaper website each day with the exaggeration on the headlines

    Next season the minimum that must happen is the demotion of Charnley.

    The structure of scouting players for the future regardless of position has royally fcucked the squad over

    Head coach must input at the beginning of scouting process what position must be addressed, Carr then looks for those players with the head coach having final say.

    That or sack Carr and Charnley

    I never minded Angryman the Angry fan too much but this new one is too much at times (most of the time).

  • 17 ToonMatt // May 15, 2016 at 6:37 PM

    Great result today but I’m still absolutely devastated, The decision to not sack McClaren earlier is the reason we are down and that decision was made by Charnley, If Ashley has any ambitions for this club he will surely fire Charnley or demote him back to his old position, Give Rafa what he wants to keep him at the club and we move on, we will win the champonship with him in charge and can start building for the future, I hope to god that Charnley is not the one who’s going to make the decision on who our next manager is? If he does then we are finished.

  • 18 Jail for Ashley // May 15, 2016 at 6:37 PM

    He will simply deflate a whole City if he comes out and releases a “we decided on a different direction” statement. Rafa has pretty much forced them in to a corner, he’s pretty much said he wants what the fans want and win things, I don’t know how they can explain their reasons for not retaining him. I think he’s going to stay.

  • 19 Bobbybee // May 15, 2016 at 6:53 PM

    Well well well, didn’t see that coming! 😉 What a performance and what an atmosphere. Had some fun with my list, got the lads around me joining in and singing your names. I reckon we got the message to Rafa however and unless Ashley wants to die, then he’ll give Rafa what he wants. 😉
    Nobody is happy with this season. It’s been a disaster. When people keep reiterating that it’s too little too late and what if this etc, it ain’t insightful. We all know and are thinking exactly the same thing. It’s done. Can’t change it now. What really matters is how we respond. Keeping Rafa has to be our priority obviously and the 52k there today did our bit. Rafa is clearly moved and if he gets what he wants, the backing he got today has already got him saying ‘the heart says yes’. Clearly the result today doesn’t make up for a season of tripe, but this shows the huge difference a world class manger can make. A month earlier and yes, we would’ve stayed up, but that’s down to Chumlee and his incompetence. Sadly, it can’t be changed. He can be sacked however! Can he really keep his job?
    Just a point about our fans. City did their farewell to an empty stadium, despite Pelligrini winning something and getting to the semi’s in the CL. Who’s fans would you rather have? I’m proud to be one of them.

  • 20 NoahJ // May 15, 2016 at 7:24 PM

    Rafa couldn’t have made it any clearer that he i) wants to stay; and ii) will only do if he is given full control and his ambitions are shared.

    his demands are not unreasonable.

    If charnley messes this up, there is absolutely no justification. Though, we are placing our trust in a man who chased mclaren for 6 months as he was the “perfect fit” for newcastle.
