Newcastle fans were generally positive to the display by Newcastle today when we hit the woodwork twice in the second half and after being 2-1 down at halftime.
And we just couldn’t get that equalizer – which we really deserved.
But this is the first game of the season and we’ll get better and Rafa will have the new players more integrated before our game next Saturday at Cardiff City.
It was a very decent start and when you looked at the bench today we have to have a better squad than last season – how much better – we don’t know.
Rafa Benitez on the touchline today
Gutsy performances from our lads today.
Here are some tweets from the fans.

Shame that. Good value for a point today. #NUFC

Great performance by #NUFC. Unlucky not to come away with something. The woodwork was Spurs best player. Feeling better about the season than before the game

Just from watching on TV you could tell the atmosphere inside SJP today was electric today. Top effort ??? #NUFC

Sick to death of reading all the negativity already and criticising the players. Its 1 game and we were very, very unlucky. All these plastic fans do my nut in! #Nufc

2-1 at home against half the England team and a team predicted top 3/4. I’ll take that. ???????? #nufc

Not a bad display, if we play like that all season, we’ll be fine. Agree about Ritchie. We might have got a point if he’d stayed on #nufc

Ritchie sub was a little off but he was out of position for the previous 3 Spurs attacks, hence the yellow card. We were after a draw which would have been out of sight at 3-1. I’m also fairly confident I’m in no position to question Rafa’s tactics.#nufc
