Fans React On Twitter To Another FA Cup Embarrassment


Newcastle fans related to another embarrassing exit from the once famous FA Cup that we won three times from 1951 through 1955 in my lifetime but that is unlikely to happen again – well not until we take the competition seriously again – but that may never happen

We have to remember this is a special season and we just have to get back to the Premier League come hell or high water in May.

But it was embarrassing nevertheless and Brighton lost 3-1 at Lincoln as they also concentrate on the Championship.

Aleksandar Mitrovic after missing penalty in second half

Yeah – same here!!

    The headline here should be….

    “Pathetic numpties cry like babies” 😀

    Think i’ll come back Wednesday when some of the morons have switched clubs due to Rafa not being sacked.

    Ron my answer was a bit tongue in cheek but I expect it was the right reason.

    No distractions now thank the Lord.

    Just 21 League matches ( 33 hours of footy[inc. extra time] ) to focus on.

    Mar Kac cus. I hope you are not classing me as a moron nor indeed a nuptie. Everyone on here has a right to their own views ,even you. Most are not shouting for Rafa’s head. Many have supported this Club for more years than they care to remember & would one day just like a few memories of success instead of the same old January disappointment. If what he did today brings us promotion inMay then all well & good but there are no guarantees merely by “resting” players

    Jesus. It was all optimism before this game haha. No wonder we get called deluded as fans. Every club suffers an embarrassing defeat at some stage of a season. Granted this could have been avoided. I’m not blaming Rafa for prioritising the league though. Clearly our squad isn’t strong enough to compete in the league and the cup.

    Brighton made 8-9 changes today from what I can see. Knockart was probably rested rather than injured.

    ‘Many have supported this Club for more years than they care to remember & would one day just like a few memories of success instead of the same old January disappointment.’

    You say that like there aren’t other opportunities in the future to have a good go in this cup.

    some people need to relax imagine shelvey playing and gettin injured or some of our other perf… that would have been awfull so i understand the tactics and line up… we simply need to get out of this league….main aim

    mitro should have burried it then it might have been dif result. this might be good for us. what have we learned a thing or 2 about some fringe players ! but we still cant judge them on 2days game for it was not a balanced team at all lazaar cb cmon now boy cant even defend on the wing ..now we gonna own the league

    No Young Magpie I’m not saying there won’t be other opportunities ,hopefully, in the Cup in the future. BUT if you look at the past 10 years or so we haven’t exactly covered ourselves in cup glory. Not won it since 1955 & not been to a the final since twice running up against Arsenal. We gave it our best shot in the League Cup & with a bit of luck could have gone the whole way. For most clubs outside the top six in the Prem the cup competitions are their only outside chance of winning something sadly

    Rafa Benitez again talked about the need to ‘balance’ his squad. He wants signings. Significant few days ahead. #nufc

    booboo I agree we certainly don’t want any of our best player’s injured in a competition we have very little chance of winning. But what was proven yet again just how poor our scouting actually is, outside of our first team we are poor, very poor. Mitrovic is and always has been a total waste of money for a start.

    Recommendation
    Buy Townsend outright £10M
    Buy Tom Ince outright £10M
    Sell Mitrovitch to Swansea.or Sundeland
    Sell Hanley to whoever will have him – terrible buy.

    Mitro will come good?
    No, he is just not capable – overrated, will be glad when he is sold. With Murphy proving to be better, Gouffran proving to be better, Gayle clearly better, probably some in the kids’ ranks better than his powder puff shooting and finishing. The loon is too busy getting involved in daft shenanigans!

    What a stupid comment.
    Personally I’ve watched this club for around 60 years making fools of themselves in the FA Cup and believe me it doesn’t get any easier taking such results when your’e 70 years old.
    Such juvenile comments as yours are part of the reason why we’re still waiting after all this time.
    Maybe more decades of rubbish in this competition may make you too pi***d off in your old age?

    Mitrovic has shown nothing,apart from knowing how to get sent off.
    15 million! He’s part of the reasons why we were relegated, no goals no points.

    In Hanley’s defence – I think a big lump like that needs to be playing week in week out to see the best of him.

    murphy aint no spring chicken no more soon to retire lets be serious gayle the verdict still on him when come to premier league . gouff doing well under benitez but he aint no spring chicken either. mitro have shown good things bossing top cbs last season his first season and i think he did well in a very bad handled team. this season his been on limited game time and” btw he has not been as bad as some of u say”. and rightly so because so far gayle been bangin them in so give him a break will ya kid will come good …lets just say the verdict still on instead of bashing him

    Mitrovic has been a terrible buy, offload him before everyone realises how bad he is.
