As you would expect, Twitter is not a solemn place for Newcastle fans at the moment. They are rightfully furious with their team’s display for a second week running.
However, there are some journalists who also concerned and raising questions about the state of Newcastle United. Here are a few of the tweets from some of those journalists.
I wrote this after Norwich, that is a set of players performing like you would towards the end of a manager’s reign, not the start #nufc

10 men or not this is just embarrassing, we are all over the shop. Players don’t know what they’re doing, no belief, no discipline. We have got worse in every single department. Making mugs out of us #nufc

It's a scandal what's happening to #nufc. Mike Ashley has to stop toying with fans' emotions. He has to sell, and allow Newcastle to rebuild, to regain their pride and identity. This isn’t a performance from Newcastle, it’s a surrender. Trail 4-0. Defence/gk all over the place.

The promise of front foot football. Mike Ashley saying #nufc could be on the verge of something special. The leg work on the signings done before the Head Coach came in. Replacing Rafa with Bruce.#nufc now favs for relegtion.
Summer chickens coming home to roost for #nufc here.

A horror show. I don’t know where #nufc go from here. Yes, down to 10 men, but out played before Hayden sending off. The criticism of Bruce will grow louder and the case for his defence gets weaker. Judge on performance and results – and he is being – and it’s far from positive

It’s absolutely unreal how passionate this fanbase is and they have to deal with this not for weeks, not for months, but FOR YEARS. But again, it all starts at the top. #NUFC

Lots of Newcastle fans – maybe even the majority – feared exactly this with Steve Bruce and plenty saw why. The club allowed Rafael Benitez to leave and replaced him with this. Add it to the list of abject embarrassments under the Mike Ashley regime.
