We lost our second successive game in the Premier League today against fellow promotion side Huddersfield by 1-0.
But this game could have gone either way and we had enough chances to have won it – but it was very close.
Once Mooy put the home side ahead after 50 minutes Newcastle pressed well and created chances but we just couldn’t score – for the second successive game.
But let’s not overreact too much.
We also lost the first two games last season and we’re sure Rafa will be able to sort things out – so we must keep supporting the manager.
That’s something Rafa asked for specifically at the start of the season.

Merino is so talented but he was too deep to make the difference he can make today. #nufc

If we’d started like we played in the final 20mins then could of been a different story!
Joselu should start next game #nufc

Same start as last season but no chance of us roaring back as strongly without more attacking quality & goals in the team. Worrying. #NUFC

Dad: I can’t see us getting out of the bottom 3 all season.
Me: we’re out of it now!

All worrying aside, Toon lost first two games last season and won the title, so prepare to party in May! #NUFC

What I can say after today as well is that Gayle should NOT start in the Premier League, unless he has a partner. #NUFC

Ultimately the game was won over the same chance. The goalkeeper saved ours and they scored theirs. #nufc

Come into this season thinking we could challenge to sign Cairney, Maguire, Sigurdson etc, but we will be lucky to get Kenedy on loan? #NUFC
