Newcastle Fans Take To Twitter After Massive Disappointment

Newcastle fans took to Twitter tonight after we played very poorly at Nottingham Forest and lost 3-1 with 3 goals coming in stoppage time.

Rafa didn’t seem happy after the match and he again thought the refereeing was poor.

But we had only one shot on target and we will need to work on our counter-attacks if we are to defend for long stretches of our games this season.

It’s been a poor start and our next two games are tough against Manchester City and Arsenal.

Oh well – this seems to be another very difficult season for the club – so no change there.

Rafa Benitez on the touchline tonight

Who Was Newcastle's Best Player At Nottingham Forest?

    There are a whole bunch of people who come on here spouting absolute bull shit every time we lose. Rafa isn’t the problem, he is the only person holding the club together. Will he keep us up? I don’t know however I do know that if he cannot no-one can.

    Gotta say it was nice seeing Tsunki make a brief cameo back on the blog today. We could use a bit of his ironic humor to cheer us up these days as our results have been so far depressing.

    This year is not going to be easy. Anyone who thinks that we will automatically finish midtable again just because we did last season are deluded. Injuries have already taken a toll and they could get worse. We were basically lucky in that department last season. Also no guarantee that players who had relatively good seasons last year will play as well this year. And no guarantee that Rafa will be able to inspire the same level of effort and togetherness out of the team as he did last year. It is a whole new beast this year….nothing is guaranteed!

    When it comes to a window where Ashley gives funds we’re gonna need to clear out some dogshit that not a lot of clubs will want

    Darlow – ok backup
    Sterry – still young
    Schar – dogshit
    Fernandez – dogshit
    Clark – championship side will take
    Longstaff – still young
    Ki – dogshit
    Atsu – dogshit
    Muto – early days but so far, dogshit
    Kenedy – loan
    Joselu – dogshit
    Perez – leganes or gerona will take him
    Murphy – dogshit
    Rondon – loan

    It’s been 4 games in to a new season. 3 games in the league v Spurs and Chelsea. Rafa created a miracle to finish 10th last season. Some can’t seem to give him more than 4 games to get something out of this team.

    Well I haven’t bothered with the cup exit. It was expected.Pl is the priority as always.Just happy to see Rondon scored and Joselu already banged two great goals.Frankly tho started to dream and hope the club is sold to someone intelligent like John William Henry etc.I was one of those who supported Ashley for a while but I don’t think he has got anymore money to chuck in and compete.Where is the talk of Samsung,Sony etc preparing to buy the club?Is it all just smokescreen?

    bring back Carver,,

    Don’t forget this little gem… Comes on here thinking he’s of a superior intellect to the majority (make that all) of the other posters and comes out with shit like that?
    I’d be concerned If i was the most hated man on the blog but Catchy just laps it up.
    You’re no fan of this club Catchy you’re just on a wind up, sad little man.

    I don’t think Rafa actually comes out and says it
    but somehow
    he imparts to the players that he’s not really fussed
    about the Carabao cup.

    Anyone who judges players or Rafa on last nights efforts
    really doesn’t get it.

    The next round (3rd) falls at the end of Sept between
    our away fixture to Palace and home to Leicester
    probably our best chance of league points in a horrendous
    early season group of fixtures.

    At the moment the last thing we needed was another midweek
    cuptie in a months time.

    up until the 90th minute he had been, he made one huge mistake.

    NUFC did not have a shot on target for 90minutes, the ref cannot be blamed for that


    you keep backing me up, What i have said in recent days is, Rafa is a great coach with players that have great ability, France have fantastic players, who will take that only chance more often than not, Athletico will, because they have better than average players to.
    No your not right to assume that it’s just for one reason, if you actually read what i say instead of cherry picking the bits you want to listen to,
    how he treats players is one, his overall one Style of play, it’s so predictable it never changes. play very deep hope not to concede for 70 mins then start making subs, more often than not it’s like for like, nearly always taking the wrong player off. take Ritchie for perez vs spurs for instance, our best player on the day.
    he does not trust his players, that’s why he parked the bus vs chelsea, who had one good player on the day, the rest were just ok, Hazzard,

    Rafa only allows the team to attack when we go a goal down, I never see us attack before then.
    last night is the perfect example, it’s like we were playing pre season, there is not much intensity in how we play, and if you listen to the pundits, they dress it up by saying, you can tell it’s a rafa team because there well drilled compact and tight, that’s great if your winning games, but if your not, you need to be a bit more expansive, and from what i see, we don’t have a real game plan to be expansive, and this is where Rafa or any defensive coach needs the best players up front to take those few chances they get.

    KK took Andy coal and an past his best beardsley had a world class LW and foxy and Lee not the best players in the world, but good enough, made them believe and we finished second.

    SBR had an over the hill Shearer, who new how to score, but had no legs any more, he spent 9.5 million robert and 6 on bell end and nobby was already there, and bang you could see a game plan

    Rafa is obsessed with buying wingers , but we don’t use them as wingers, we use them as back up defenders who sprint 60 yards, cut in more often than cross, and when they do cross, it’s more often then not to no one.

    Rafa might have a great trophy cabinet, but he is the wrong manager for our budget players.

    i actually take what you say as a compliment, because i lay out what i see as valid points, and no one refutes them, they just come back and say your the most hated person on here, just be happy we have him, or KK lost games too.
    it’s like you only feel safe in numbers.

    Well what can I say about last night’s shambles and certain players in particular. Don’t know if the tv picked it up but Rafa looked a dejected and pissed off man in the dug out.
    Kennedy what a waste in the game,Shar the less said the better and Atsu looks like he left his brain on the operating table while having his knees done.plenty of disillusioned fans walking out of the ground as was I,And you can dress it up all ya want Regarding changes to the squad..So did Forest.
    Yet again we were second best and if that is acceptable then yet again Ashley has won with your mindset

    What has last nights result got to do with Ashley? The players out there were pretty much the same ones we were using last year. the reason we lost is because the manager has lost the dressing room. they dont want to play for a man who is not committed to the club and openly says that the squad i.e. the players on the pitch last night, are not good enough. you want to blame someone for poor results, blame Rafa. If it were Pardew or Carver that is where the bile would be spouted

    You can see it in the players performances in every game.

    I did something last night I have never done before, at the 60th minute I turned the match off for a Sky movie. It was obvious we were not interested in progressing to the next round – I genuinely believe that.

    I have just watched the recording and Rondon took his goal well but what the hell was our CB doing prior to the cross coming in for their second – gave him yards to run.

    Then Kenedy has another mare for their third.

    Just couldn’t watch it any longer, too much negativity in our club created by Ash but Rafa needs to stop talking about ‘the players I have ‘ and ‘ needs must ‘

    Love Rafa and I place the problem with Ash – but that last night was expected in my opinion, nobody wants a cup run within our club and made that clear.

    Even less confidence going into City match !

    Not one person has said that crock last night
    was good – but those of us with a brain look
    for reasons why our players who normally die
    for the cause were not fussed against Forest
    in what Liverpool fans call the Mickey Mouse cup

    did i not give reasons?

    or you do dim that you just don’t see them.

    your reason is Ashley didn’t spend enough, it’s always your reason.

    Forest spent 23 million on 13 players Karanka only joined the club this year, he made 4 changes, and still despite having just put this together, had them well drilled looking like they had been together for a while
    Bryam went of, he was tearing us apart on the left side.

    Rafas great wisdom was to sell Murphy and by joselu, who is worse and cost more. how can you defend that? Joselu gets a regular start, just like last year.
    people saying we made 20+ million, only because Rafa sold our top striker that most fans liked, because he didn’t like him. he didn’t have to sell him, and he sold him to a team that will be fight with us at the bottom, you could make this stuff up

    Nearly 3000 fans travelled last night and total respect to you all.

    Ok I was a lot younger when Souness was our manager and I watched the games until the end, possibly I was just daft – but last night you could almost see deliberate acts not to progress. Maybe Rafa led who knows but a win last night could of helped with confidence for the weekend – not now.

    I won’t even mention the game the officials had

    Cheers fella
