Newcastle Support At Leicester City Has Not Gone Unnoticed

Newcastle fans sang their hearts out this evening in support of the team. It’s just unfortunate that they had to witness in person one of the most unforgivable performances in a long time.

Here is an apology from captain Jamaal Lascelles to all of the Newcastle fans who travelled to the game or watch it on television.

Newcastle fans were on another level this evening at the King Power Stadium. They out sang Leicester fans even when down by 4 and 5 goals. We noticed at home on the television that all you could hear were Newcastle fans in the beginning. The fans kept it up through the entirety of the abysmal match they had to watch.

Here are some tweets for both Newcastle fans and other fans praising the away support today.

    Perez and Almiron may have similar scoring and assist stats, but there really is little comparison between the pair otherwise.

    Perez was excellent for them today. Very much a significant part of their overall dominance.

    The obvious difference between Perez and Almiron is that one is contributing to a winning side playing good effective eminently watchable football and the other is I’m afraid doing quite the opposite.

    I do like Almiron, and it should be said no one else has suffered more for Rafa leaving. He is gifted, but he is lost.

    He would be quite good for them however.

    I want Steve Bruce sacked. Full stop. I hate the man. However this is not Steve Bruce’s fault, unless Ashley had of gone out of his way to persuade Ancellotti or Mourinho to take over this was going to happen to any fool desperate enough to take the job. Jib reckons I’m a chump for thinking he might relegate us while he says he’ll get us tenth and a cup run. Dear gawd!!

    Can anyone grasp now exactly why we shouldn’t just give Bruce “a chance”? It’s been just fine and dandy being told repeatedly we should get behind this guy as one of our own because we are footy know-nowts and not true supporters etc. Let’s just continually ignore us pointing out he’s a cheap mug from the champo who’ll do us no good because we are just bad supporters.

    The footy genius clan who dissected every move Benitez made in their hyper critical fair and balanced way now looks exactly what I thought of it all along – pointless nit picking specious analysis that totally missed the point that the guy was knitting spaghetti with a threadbare squad and the leftover mismatches of previous expert purchases by Ashley’s “scouting business” Division.

    Can we just put down the “We are footy experts” bazookas now and just admit that what the sensible ones among us knew years ago that Ashley is making fools of us all for continuing to hold this facade up while he pushes it down from the other side. We got another Pardew-McClaren type travelling hack to teach us a lesson that Mike’s calling the shots and there’s no ambition talk allowed here while there is TV revenue and advertising to siphon away. And now he gets to throw his crap in our faces while he laughs at us for soaking up more takeover talk. He’s a hoot isn’t he?

    Just as i said weeks ago, no need for boycotts, no need for protests, Mike’s doing all the work for us. Tenth place and a decent cup run? Maybe. But not in this league.

    The club has been ruined. The players know this is the buffer stop on the line. What progress and value there was has vanished. I reckon there’ll be more days like these. Buckle up!

    Sad times tsunki.
    Jail predicted before the season these more that often 3 goal 5 goal beatings.
    Look whats happening.
    Munster is scared that the fans are going to get club relegated.
    Im scared ashley and bruce are.
    Why have we all just stood back and allowed this to happen?

    Jail i’ve responded to some of your nonsense earlier. As nufc fans we are all sick of this level of performance. But to say that a fan cant criticise a manager, and also praise him, is bonkers. Lilongwe expressed it better than me. I wanted rafa here long term , funded. I must have said it 20 times. That doesnt mean he was above criticism, a point of view you are now trying to validate because of your obsession. And to repeat, I didnt want bruce either. but I tbought he should be gjven a chance once he was in. Im afraid he needs to head for the hills.

    Not been on for a while but Bertie shouldn’t even be up for discussion (although he is a shitster for eagerly taking the job knowing full well what he was signing up to)

    No. The parasite is and always has been the problem. Gleefully taking the pish out of our loyalty for 12 years. It’s all well and good saying we’ve got the best fans but that’s exactly what he’s relied upon and will continue to exploit to its maximum.

    It’s time to make a stand.

    It’s time to show that we will not put up with all his bullsh1t.

    It’s time to finally do something about the problem instead of whinging and moaning on the fcuking internet!

    Grow some fcuking backbone and some balls

    Genj I dont think emptying the ground is going to help us stay up. Keegan isnt with you either. Do what you want but spare us the geordie hard man act with the frog in hemel hemstead with his 1970s video clips. I want a strong nufc like you do, and ashley out but im not sure if you and others here respect the rights of fans to go and support and hope.

    Tsunki you may have misinterpreted me, in your anxiousness to point score. I said “give bruce a chance” , not because I think he is great or wonderful, but because he had got the gig and the choice was to get behind him and hope, or not. I got behind him because he was the man in the hot seat, not because I thought he merited it. That time is now up unless we get a radical reaction and start winning matches.

    Jesus wept Munster. You are by far the biggest t1t going aren’t you?

    Still banging that drum. Still talking the same old fair and balanced bullsh1t you spouted years ago.

    Still believing it.

    Give it a rest man ffs!

    You were wrong. You backed the wrong horse to the hilt and then when something better came along decided to slag it at every opportunity because you were wrong, backed yourself into a corner and couldn’t save face.

    I wish there was a block button on this site.

    Bleach, if you dont like me, a lifelong supporter having the right to criticise a manager, and still want him ahead of the likes of SB, then sod off because there is no block button.

    Munster you’ve been saying that we were guilty of thinking rafa was above criticism. I’ll admit it especially in hindsight I think he actually was above criticism. He did a well measured and professional job which should be counted as one long project not a series of nit-picking minutae. That’s what you always failed to appreciate – he was carrying out one single long task and all the while you itched to pull out the odd thread here and there because the style was occasionally lacking.

    You can’t give a man an almost insurmountable job and when he’s successful start carping on about all the bumps and lumps along the way you didn’t quite like. Now you’ve got a situation. The championship loser you were trying to get us to get behind is delivering what we told you he would. Every bit of it deserves criticism. There’s no free-flowing football here. No exciting attacking flair. Just Steve Bruce the ex-mackem knacker

    Munster you’re so full of rubbish you continually mention how you wanted raga here and praised him? Yeah only when we were winning games. If we were losing drawing or even just playing slightly bad you continuously criticised him. That’s not fair and balanced that’s at best knee jerk reactions or at worst you being a coward knowing how catchy has no credibility on here and how you’d be exactly like him without giving Rafa some ‘praise’. Also you keep mentioning to give SB time? Well you didnt exactly give Rafa that when you judged him on the sunderland game after only a few matches here. All because he dared played defensively to try and stop the 6 game losing run we had against them?

    No tsunki I respected rafa to travel miles to meet him. I also reserved the right to criticise SOME aspects if his style. This wasnt acceptable to the rafa religion. Sorry , but if it was acceptable to hard core forest and man u fans of their great managers, then its acceptable to me. I still think he was ideal for us. But above criticism? Maybe in your world.

    Ajs stop parrotting Jail. I criticised rafa when he played negatively against weaker teams. he was still a great fit for us. I hope you get a manager in the future that is beyond criticism that u so desire.

    To be fair to Moanster it is a canny hike to get from Rathkeale to Kildare – 170k I think.

    I’m parroting jail? No I’m saying my view and the view of plenty of Newcastle fans who knew Rafa wasn’t perfect but we knew just how well he was doing with our squad which should be even more evident after how useless we are now. We had a manager who seemed to genuinely care about the club and the city and who for the first time in years gave us hope for better and had genuine ambition. So I’m sorry if you think that’s parroting but I’d rather be a parrot of jail than someone like you who uses any excuse to have a go at rafa and then acted as if you are being victimised when people call you on it. Also we played negatively against weaker teams. Well how come out record against weaker teams was so good especially last year when we were kept up by our record against weaker teams? And how about the championship where we not only came too but had the most goals scored? Like it might not be the most interesting style to watch but it worked and with the squad we have it’s the only way it could’ve worked but don’t let that get in the way if your ‘fair and balanced assessements’

    Fantastic support from our away fans yesterday – they all deserve a medal.
    Well done!!
    If our players had that pride and passion it would not have been 5-0.
