Newcastle fans are mostly still positive after our 4-1 defeat at Old Trafford on Saturday and for most of that first half, we were a lot better than the Red Devils.
But then two things happened – our defensive weaknesses started to show and we gave away two bad goals just before halftime to make it 2-1.
That was after Dwight Gayle scored a very good first goal after 14 minutes – and hopefully, we will see more goals coming from Dwight.
He’s the only natural goalscorer we have at the moment.
The other thing that the massively expensive player on display for Manchester United started to show their class and the game was over and we lost 4-1.
There are some fans negative about the current situation after losing three games in a row but in the main the fans are sticking with Rafa and the team.
That’s what we have to do and not overreact too much to the defeats.
The only time we can overact is when we win – and then we can really go to town!
Hopefully, we will get a number of wins before the end of this year and if we can be around mid-table when January comes along – and we’ll be in very decent shape.
Let’s keep the faith.
And just think – Amanda could well be the new owner by then.
Hoping and praying ……….
3rd minute into injury time at Old Trafford, 4-1 down and the Geordies are still singing.

People who slag off other fans of the same team they support are blatantly the same ones who send tweets to our players calling them shite! #NUFC

Rafa has got the maximum out of a v average PL squad. Hopefully it’s a case of keeping things steady until the takeover…The thought of A Staveley walking onto SJP in her stilettos is rather exiting ? #nufc

Ok we got beat but it was Man Utd and Pogba cost more than our first 11!! #NUFC

Amanda Staveley is going to buy #NUFC Mate

We’re about a third of the way through the season and are currently sitting above:
Be positive people!! #NUFC

Florian Lejeune had a nightmare v Man Utd. Has quality but he switches off too easily. Reminds me of Colo back in the day. Would like to see Lascelles/Clark partnership again when the skipper returns #NUFC

Very little being said about Rafa’s comments regarding our transfer window spending #NUFC

Perspective needed for #nufc – many fans saying Rafa’s decisions are wrong – need to remember how far we’ve come – it’s been a long, long road to the point we’re at – Pardew, Carver, McClaren…

For the rest of the season if we play like we did in the first 40 mins yesterday we will be fine, Murphy looked decent and needs more game time, hopefully Rafa can get a bit of cash in Jan to add some quality though #HowayTheLads #nufc #rafalution

Woke up and I’m still super proud. Of our team and our fans and Rafa ?? #nufc

Whether rafa likes MITRO or not he needs to swap him with Joselu! You can’t keep playing a striker whose not scoring it’s a negative message! Need to offer something to stay in team #nufc

West Ham fans could be in full revolt by the time #NUFC play down there. Could make for a more than interesting day.
